    May Day on the beach at Santa Monica saw a good turnout by local masked AntiFa clad in black and red. They were carrying flags on sturdy poles. Independent Journo BasedPoland was collecting soundbites as the violent crowd began shoving him. The usual MF-centric swearing begins. A female disguised by a red kerchief the independent journo a sharp, unprovoked KONK on his head with her flag pole: At 0:13 BasedPoland shifts his attention leftwards to her, then gets his weight moving forward as, still clutching his microphone, he delivers a very sharp jab directly to his attacker's face: Her violence...

    RIOTING has broken out in Paris today as thousands gathered for May Day protests dubbed an 'Armageddon’ by extremist demonstrators..Paris police said 250 people had been arrested, most for public order offences related to the rioting, as cops clashed with 'Black Bloc' anti-capitalists. Weapons were also confiscated as the police used tear gas, rubber bullets and baton charges to try and restore order. Thugs from the so-called Black Bloc anti-capitalist movement were involved in running battles with police soon after 1pm (local time). Black Bloc activists with their faces covered could be seen leading attacks on officers, and smashing up...

    The term "progressive" is simply another way of saying "socialist" or "Marxist;" California’s elected Democrats are pushing for a communist holiday, at the expense of a U.S. President’s Day. Remember during the Cold War when “better dead than Red?” was the thinking? History repeats itself because evil never goes away.

    The California Assembly discussed Thursday a bill that would replace Abraham Lincoln or George Washington’s birthday with International Socialist Workers’ Day as a paid holiday. California Democrat Assemblyman Miguel Santiago introduced Bill AB-3042, which would allow schools to replace Washington Day and Lincoln Day with Presidents’ Day and install an “International Workers’ Day” — conventionally known as “May Day” — as a second holiday. “I’m aghast that a bill like this would be able to get through committee,” California Republican Assemblyman Matthew Harper said to the Assembly. “Are we in competition to be the laughing stock of the United States?”...

    NEW YORK - Immigrants say President Donald Trump's administration has become almost everything they feared, but while they rally across the United States on May Day, their focus is less on huge turnout Tuesday than on the first Tuesday in November. Marches and other demonstrations for labor and immigrant rights were planned from Florida to New York to California on International Workers' Day and come amid similar actions worldwide. "The Trump administration has made very clear that they've declared war on the immigrant community on all levels," said Javier Valdes, co-executive director of the advocacy group Make the Road New...

    May Day is a fitting time to commemorate the tens of millions of victims of this murderous ideology. Today is May Day. Since 2007, I have advocated using this date as an international Victims of Communism Day. I outlined the rationale for this proposal (which was not my original idea) in my very first post on the subject: May Day began as a holiday for socialists and labor union activists, not just communists. But over time, the date was taken over by the Soviet Union and other communist regimes and used as a propaganda tool to prop up their [authority]....

    MOSCOW -- Workers and activists marked May Day on Tuesday with rallies to demand their governments address labor issues. International Workers' Day is a public holiday in many countries, though activities are restricted in some places, sometimes leading to confrontations. A look at some of the events around the world: Russia More than 100,000 people came out on the streets on Moscow to march in the traditional May Day parade. Turkey Police in Istanbul detained more than a dozen demonstrators who tried to march toward Istanbul's symbolic main square in defiance of a ban. Greece Thousands of Greeks are marching...

The Next Gen Millennials that I saw are mad as HELL and not going to roll over anymore! The May Day workers who united this day seemed to come mostly from Latin countries. Signs in Spanish. Flags from their countries of birth (no American Flags) but, yes: Marxist flags. Socialist flags. And drums! Always drums mixed with Latin music blasting across Union Square. We weren’t in Kansas anymore. REVOLUTION....

    French police were pelted with Molotov cocktails and fireworks as hundreds of anti-Marine Le Pen activists hijacked the annual May Day march on Monday. Officers were pictured on fire while demonstrators were hit with tear gas and charged with batons as scenes turned ugly ahead of a speech by Le Pen and her presidential opponent Emmanuel Macron. Meanwhile dozens of anti-Erdogan marchers were detained in Turkey after they tried to walk to Taksim Square, an iconic protest space that had been declared off-limits by police. Ugly clashes between protesters and police were also photographed in the US, Italy, Indonesia and...

    The Left used May Day to push its open-borders agenda this year. There were loud, violent, disruptive protests across America yesterday for International Workers’ Day, but American workers’ issues were barely discussed as they took a back seat to the Left’s current mania for illegal aliens and open borders. This May Day comes after R. Alexander Acosta, 48, was sworn in as the 27th Secretary of Labor by Vice President Mike Pence last week. Acosta, whose nomination was endorsed by the Laborers’ International Union of North America and other unions, was a U.S. Attorney and dean of Florida International University...

    Chicago Public Schools teacher Hector Sanchez brought 20 of his students to the May Day protest Monday across from the county juvenile detention center. The trip came as part of a "democracy in action" program for political science students at the Social Justice High School in Little Village, where they learn about government. In class, Sanchez taught students about lobbying Congress, but some wanted to know: "How do regular people lobby?" "This is part of that," Sanchez said as dozens of protesters holding signs gathered on an empty lot at Roosevelt Road and Ogden Avenue. Around the world, union members...

    We Should Remember The Horrors Of Communism And Socialism Per the detailed analysis in “The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression” (which should be required reading by every student in America) the number of deaths caused by Communism and Socialism was estimated at 94,360,000…. These estimates were made almost 20 years ago in 1997. Just imagine how some of the socialist and communist regimes have added to their total since…. And let’s not forget the full name of Hitler’s Nazi party was; Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (National Socialist German Workers’ Party).—Jeff Dunetz “On May 1st We Should Remember The Horrors...

    Trump Declared May 1 “Loyalty Day,” But You Shouldn’t Freak Out About It By Morgan Brinlee 19 hours ago President Donald Trump asked Americans to reaffirm their allegiance to the United States' founding principals in a proclamation that caused a number of people on social media to flip out. In his proclamation, Trump called on Americans to "observe this day with appropriate ceremonies," including reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, and asked government officials to display the American flag on all government buildings and grounds. But while Trump's request may sound a bit Orwellian, the truth is there's no reason to...

    Professor Ilya Somin called to designate May Day as the "Victims of Communism Day." I wholeheartedly support his idea with only one suggestion--let's call it the "Victims of Communism/Socialism Day." According to Karl Max, socialism is the transition stage to communism. Communist countries such as the former Soviet Union and China under Mao, never claimed that they had achieved Communism. Instead, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, and their Communist cadre, committed crimes against humanity, which caused a total of 80-100 million death in the 20th century, under the banner of socialism. It's also important to remember that the full name of Nazi...

    BOSTON (AP) — Immigrants and activists are marking International Workers’ Day with marches and rallies in Boston and its suburbs. The “Here to Stay” rallies in Boston, Chelsea and Everett on Monday are also meant to be a call for Massachusetts lawmakers to approve the Safe Communities Act. That proposal would make Massachusetts a so-called “sanctuary state” where state agencies limit their cooperation with federal immigration enforcement efforts.
