Why May Day? Isn’t May 1 International Communist Day or something?

Didn’t the LA riots kick off May 1?

These May Day rallies are celebrating COMMUNISM! Pure and Simple. They are treasonous.

i like the portion of the strike poster which reads: “No House Work”- kind of telling how these “wake up at the crack of noon” parasites live their lives...

Yeah. So what's new?
Since the mid 30s, "private" unions supported communism, and more recently most public employee unions are financially mutually supportive with the CPUSA.

I have no problem with a general strike whatsoever, so long as there is no attempt to pay them for time not worked.

No work, no pay.

They’ve learned that the mayor of Oakland wants to just close her eyes and click her heels to make them go away, so look for the level of violence and property destruction to make national headlines again.

There haven’t been any “this is for Trayvon” assaults there, as far as I know, possibly because the Bay Area is so self-segregated by city that the odds are low that whitey has any business in the bad areas.

I guess CNN will report these wonderful, “grassroots” exhibitions. Glad I don’t live close to any of those cities.

I think it is somehow related to Communism. It is my understanding that it started out in commemoration of the labor strike that got out of hand in Chicago in 1886.

Haymarket affair (also called Haymarket massacre)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haymarket_affair

So May Day events are historically associated with violence. That’s why the heads-up.

The commies who can't shoot straight embarrassed themselves last year so I expect the Soros Stupids to get a little more violent this year...

...some are gonna get killed by local police while Obama will keep the Feds out of it (he may even order Holder to arm the agitators)...anarchy will ensue in places and self armed 2nd Amendment following private citizens, officially deputized, will help the cops mop up the mess from there...

...then with self armed American patriots thus gathered, organized and properly motivated in the defense of our nation...

...a "peaceful" march on Washington DC may be in order.

Ooops, and yes the LA riots happened around the same date ... started April 29 and carried on through may day ... not sure if they had anything to do with the other events.

I think John Paul II, no friend of communism, added St. Joseph to May 1, although St. Joseph already had another day already.

I think this - I could be wrong.

Please correct me if this is urban or any other myth.

Not a friend to communism at all.

Hmmmmmm. Don’t you need to get a job first before you can go on strike and refuse to do the job? So if the OWS crowd goes on strike, how can anyone possibly know it’s a strike?

I agree, I was being a little sarcastic.

If The Communist May Day riots can extend to Cinco de Mayo, maybe the Latino Treyvon crowd can join in?

General strike? What does that mean? Two dozen malcontents in each city? With the lapdog press making a big deal of nothing?

Yawn

Yawn

Yawn.

These aren't legitimate protesters! They're liberal's spoiled brats who've turned into nothing but squatters and freeloaders while creating an expensive public mess!!!

They want everybody to tolerate their unauthorized squatting on both public and private property while now acting like deadbeats, demanding their student loans be forgiven as a "bailout" which they pretend to protest for corporations.

That last hipocrisy is the unions sponsoring their mocking of America's vastly superior financial system when it's not being crippled by creeping socialism and labor goons!!!

This is a big day for both the ILWU (International Longshoremen Union) and the OWS. Do a google search on ILWU May Day poster 2008 and then on 2012. There are probably other posters in between, but you will get a good enough idea by looking at those two posers.

The ILWU is an openly communist union and always has been. The ILWU has a long history pf participation in Communist activities, from sponsoring the sugar strike in Cuba to hiring Frank Marshall Davis as editor of a communist newspaper n Hawaii, that was purchased by the ILWU as a propaganda tool in their efforts to promote the Hawaiian separatist movement and other communist revolutions in Central and South America.

Note that Obama has especially close ties to the ILWU through his childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis.

There WAS an ILWU May Day 2012 poster, but it seems to have disappeared after members were told that a port shut down on May Day would violate their contracts.

You can still take a look at the 2008 poster, though.
