The violent left was at it again, doing what it does best
Rioting, smashing windows, blocking firemen from a torched building after their immigration protest yesterday in Santa Cruz. Many in the group were carrying makeshift torches as they marched. 15 businesses were victimized by this group. What started out as a dance rave ended with smashed windows and a burning coffee house.

Since SWAT Teams are now only to be used for Tea Part Granny’s then the fine residents of Santa Cruz had better call up the local Boy Scouts to save them from these violent protestors.
Major media winks at violence from the left but goes into alarm if somebody from the tea party just raises their voice.
Yeah, looks like a bunch of rioters and window-smashers to me. NOT!!
Some desperately dangerous hard-core criminals you got in that picture. /sarcasm
She reminds me of "Maxine". : )
I don’t understand why any business is in Santa Cruz.
Had to go there once, & could not wait to get away from there. Won’t go again.
Isn’t it one of those cities where the city council passed a resolution opposing the Itaq war or something, as if it were a sovereign nation?
Of course, when the MSM constituents are rioting, their propaganda about the Right falls flat.
It took AN HOUR the cops to show up??
I’ve lived here for 27 years.
I don’t know why any buisness is here either.
Did they clean up their trash after their demonstration?
Liberals are right this is like Nazi Germany.
Mexico is Germany and Arizona is Poland.
They had to change out of their protest clothes.
Todays toilet media language,
rioting bottlethrowing car turning molo tov cocktailthrowing, windowsmashing equals peaceful demonstration
tea party vets, women, families peacefully protesting, equals radical rightwing anarchists and militia, domestic terrorists threatening the government and public figures
How odd. The MSM doesn’t seem to be reporting this out of control left wing violence. Thanks. I’ll have to pass the word around so people actually get the news.
Funny how our local noozpeeps never mention this sort of violence committed by the left.
They only capture the “plight of the poor misunderstood immigrant living in the shadows”.
All they could talk about was the “record turnout” of protestors which was a lie according to what was posted here on FR.
Surely this is wrong. This can’t be. Tea Partiers are the violent ones. This is just all wrong. Unbelievable. Shocking, really. Strains the imagination.
Has to have been Tea Partiers.
There must be some mistake.
Tea Partiers dressed up like Immigrationists??
Please, please, tell me the Journalists got this wrong. I’m losing my mind.

Wow, that needs its own thread!
This calls for an update of Thug-0-crat hit list, Monster Ping, and Loony Left [links in profile.]
“It took AN HOUR the cops to show up??”
Moreover, we are just learning about it now? when it occurred at 10:30 last night...

The violence was initiated from a group holding a rally at the town clock for May Day. The group formed and quickly made their way down Pacific Ave where they started damaging businesses.
Because of the size and violent demeanor of the crowd, Santa Cruz Police officers called for Mutual-Aid backup from all law enforcement agencies in the County. Neighboring officers arrived quickly and began to coordinate with Santa Cruz Officers. This quick response and action was essential in preventing damage to other businesses.

But it is not violence. There is no violence on the Left.
And he might just get it. I hope that conservatives are not so passive that the Left is able to work its way with such violence and we all just lie down and get beaten. If these tactics appear to the Left to be successful then we can expect them openly on election day.
Much better video here:
Anarchy Riot Santa Cruz Ca Mayday 2010
Guy with the video is yelling at the police saying they are an hour late. Said it was gang of anarchists causing the damage.
“Anarchists came through town and destroyed a bunch of windows and broke everything.”
Action starts about one minute into the video.
Excellent post and we all know what happens to anyone who enters Mexico illegally.
Not exactly. There is violence on the Left but it is always "justified," because the "thesis" is responding to the "repression" of the reactionary "antithesis."
It's all in Hegel.
Or maybe to impeach George Bush!
There are more private firearms in the U.S. than people.
How do we fight back?
Same with the MSM - they won't see it - they can't see it - they are blind to it ... Yeah, and they wonder why no one trust them...
What a joke.
We fight by singing “We shall Overcome” at tea parties and rubbing their liberal faces ( MSM ) in their own ineptness.
The SWAT team is there for Tea Parties and they don't come to an anarchist destructive binge for an HOUR???
The guy was pissed, and he should be! Where the H*** were the cops? The riot police? Then the cops act all tough and stuff?
Arm yourselves, people. NOBODY is looking out for you.
(a post from the San Cruz newspaper site)
These people are DEMANDING that we legitimize their ILLEGAL presence here by using ignorant RIOT tactics such as those used in places like Mexico, Nicaragua and El Slavador. Well, this isn’t the Third World and as Americans we should NOT allow themselves to be intimidated by the VIOLENT CULTURE of these illegal aliens in our midst to cave into their idiotic and UNLAWFUL demands. First of all, those in the crowds who are NOT U.S. citizens are also breaking more of our laws by gathering in OUR streets and protesting. No one other than U.S. Tax paying citizens are allowed to protest this government. They should all be arrested, detained and deported on that violation alone!!!! Obviously, The Department of Homeland Security, ICE and the local police departments are blatantly NOT doing their jobs by NOT enforcing this portion of OUR LAWS!!!! Residents of Santa Cruz should be outraged that this was allowed to happen in their community without the intervention of The Deparment of Homeland Security! Residents of Santa Cruz should be flooding Washington, DC with phone calls demanding that harsh punishments and penalties be taken against those that rioted in their community. If the people of Santa Cruz will not demand that they be treated with honor and respect in THEIR own home by these third world criminals, backed by the promise of OUR own government that their rights, property and safety as American citizens will be protected, then whose responsibility is it? People of Santa Cruz, don’t allow this incident to be swept under the rug! Business owners of Santa Cruz, demand that your tax dollars be put to work to apprehend, arrest and deport the perpetrators that destroyed your property and interupted the peacefulness of YOUR community...people who are here illegally...illegally demanding that WE legitimize their unlawful behaviors and accept them into our once safe and peaceful communities!!!
This is why third world countries have remained that way...because of the mentality we are seeing displayed here by these criminals who believe they have a right to breach the sovereignty of a nation such as ours and then demand that we welcome them in and give them carte blanche, all the perks of formal citizenship in the country they have literally broken into!!
This IS NOT IMMIGRATION, folks! THIS IS AN ALL OUT INVASION and attempt at occupation, using violence against OUR citizens to achieve their goals!!!
That bears repeating.
I wish I knew how. I do have a piece of advice, however: expose the dialectic. The hypocrisy of the Left and their justification of tactics they condemn in their opponents is well know. But what it little known is that the dialectic provides actual justification for this hypocrisy. This is not the usual hypocrisy that is merely part of human weakness. This is an intentional tactic. The entire world is divided between the good, progressive, "oppressed" Thesis and the evil, reactionary, oppressive Antithesis. To the dialectician, whether something is right or wrong literally depends on who does it. If the Thesis does it, it is good. If the Antithesis does it, it is bad.
Hegel was actually a "right winger" (European style) for whom the "end of history" was the nineteenth century Prussian state. However, Marx took this dialectic and ran with it, insisting that the "end of history" was in the revolutionary socialist future.
The Left's original Thesis was the working class. Despite their rhetoric (in which they still pretend that they represent "ordinary working people," believe it or not) they long since wrote actual working people off as a bunch of irredeemable Archie Bunkers. Today their various "oppressed" groups include Blacks (vis a vis whites), women (vis a vis men), Hispanics (vis a vis Anglos), children and the aged (vis a vis the middle aged), homosexuals (vis a vis heterosexuals), and even the animal/vegetable world vis a vis the human race.
Now note that none of this makes any sense. For example, "oppressed" Blacks are also very much a part of the "oppressive" human race. And there seems very little ideological glue to hold together Catholic Hispanics, Fundamentalist Blacks, and atheist homosexuals. But note that even though it shouldn't be, this "alliance of the oppressed" seems iron-clad. There is nary a peep of dissent or dissension from within it.
One thing the Left offers groups such as Blacks and Hispanics is that it will not fight against their religious beliefs if they will join it in fighting the religious beliefs of the hated Antithesis. This is an old tactic. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the Left assured Irish Catholics that as an oppressed people, they were free to keep their (otherwise "reactionary") religious beliefs intact, while the religious beliefs of the hated English were mercilessly attacked. Similarly, in the early days of the American Indian Movement one of its leaders stated plainly that their religion was non-oppressive and that Marx's critique of religion as the opiate of the people did not apply to it.
If religious Blacks, Hispanics, moslems, and American Indians will join the Left in its attack on the religious beliefs of the hated "oppressors," they may keep their own religious beliefs intact. It's a win/win for them. I have often wondered how the radicalized Black and Hispanic clergy would act if militant "gays" invaded their churches and attacked them. But of course, as fellow members of the Grand Alliance of the Oppressed, they will never do this.
One final word. As you perhaps know, I am a Noachide rather than a chr*stian. One thing this means is that I reject the idea of two "gxds," a good one and an evil one engaged in struggle, with the evil "gxd" having temporarily taken control of the world. There is only One G-d, He is good, the Satan is merely one of His angels carrying out His orders, and ultimately it is G-d Himself Who is control of even the forces of evil, which He uses for His own purposes. This means that the forces of evil, which appear so unassailable, are actually a paper tiger. Their only power comes from the fact that everyone is so afraid of them. If our side would refuse to play their game, refuse their right to control the debate (ie, by declaring homosexuality perfectly all right while charging its opponents with "hatred"--itself a moralistic position), then it would collapse.
Push back! What right have they to condemn you for "homophobia" if you don't have the right to condemn them for homosexuality? If they won't allow you to label something immoral, then don't let them label anything immoral either!
Most of all pray to G-d. He Alone is in complete control. But I'm afraid it's going to get very very uncomfortable before it starts getting any better.
I'm sorry. This is all I know to tell you.
That's not true...I hear O'Reilly say he "looking out for the folks" ALL the time.../extreme flaming sarcasm...any videos of the anarchists trashing Asheville, NC over the weekend?
Oh yes. It’s also a Sanctuary City, and a Nuclear Free Zone.
We got it all here in the Granola capital of the world, fruits, nuts, and a lot of flakes.
Very good. Thanks!
