‘There is only ONE Solution: REVOLUTION. REVOLUTION! May Day 2017.’
Across the country, around the world, Marxists and their Antifa comrades short for, ironically enough, anti-fascists) mean to destroy the free world. But the next gen millennials at the New York demos were not having — they are not going quietly into the dark, marxist night (scroll down).
Let’s review the history of May Day – Dr. Jack Wheeler explains:
For millennia, especially here in Europe, the First of May was a happy, joyful celebration of life after winter, with dancing around a Maypole and crowning a pretty girl with flowers as Queen of May. When we were kids, my sisters would always get up early to pick flowers, and leave them in a basket at the front door for Mom, our family’s Queen of May.
Today is a national holiday in Portugal, as it is in over 30 other countries in Europe and dozens of other countries around the world. But not as May Day. Instead, it’s called International Workers Day. Since it was the invention of Communists in 1889, it should be called Commie Day. Only Communists could take an innocent celebration of springtime and turn it into celebration of murder, terrorism, hate, and envy.
Here’s the story. It begins not in Europe but in America.
One hundred and twenty eight years ago this Saturday, on the evening of May 3, 1886, a group of men met in the basement of Greif’s Hall on Lake Street in Chicago. Almost all of them were recent immigrants from Germany, and what brought them together was a hatred they had in common.
They called this hatred by various names – they were “anarchists,” “socialists,” “communists,” “syndicalists,” “revolutionaries” — all code-words for anti-capitalist. They all hated capitalism with a fanatically violent fervor. They all claimed to be champions of “workers,” of employees, people who had jobs — and above all human beings on earth they hated those who provided those jobs, the entrepreneurs who created the companies that made those jobs possible.
One of them was Louis Lingg from Mannheim, who had come to America less than a year before. He had taught himself how to make hand-held bombs containing dynamite (invented by Alfred Nobel in 1867), and at the meeting in Greif’s Hall, he gave one of his bombs to Rudolph Schnaubelt, the brother-in-law of one of the meeting’s organizers, Michael Schwab.
The following evening, May 4, a demonstration was held in support of “workingmen’s rights,” organized by an anarchist-socialist German-language newspaper in Chicago, Arbeiter-Zeitung, and its editor, August Spies from Hesse, Germany. It was at Haymarket Square, at West Randolph and Desplains Streets. It was chilly and drizzly, with some 600 in attendance.
At about 10:30pm, with a speaker calling out “To arms!” and advocating violence, Police Inspector John Bonfield, at the head of a contingent of 60 uniformed policemen, called for the meeting to be over and the crowd to disperse. Rudolph Schnaubelt lit Lingg’s bomb and tossed it into the police. Officer Matthias Degan was killed on the spot, six officers died thereafter, and dozens wounded.
A number of demonstrators then pulled out revolvers and began firing at the police, who returned fire, killing four.
History knows this as The Haymarket Massacre. There were eight arrests, including Spies, Schwab, Lingg, and Schnaubelt. Bombs and bomb materials were found in Lingg’s apartment. Schnaubelt escaped (fleeing to South America, he died in Buenos Aires in 1901). Five of the defendants were sentenced to be hung – but only four were, as Lingg committed suicide by smuggling a blasting cap into his cell, which he lit and put in his mouth. It blew off his lower jaw, and it took hours for him to die in agony.
Lingg, along with the four who were hung, lies buried in Chicago’s Waldheim Cemetery. And now comes the part of this story that may make you ill.
There is a Monument to the Haymarket Martyrs in the Waldheim Cemetery – and it is not in honor of the policemen murdered by the anarcho-communists. It is a monument to the murderers. Not only that, it is a Shrine of the Left’s, a pilgrimage site. The Haymarket Murderers have been turned into heroes. Just like a Palestinian terrorist suicide bomber who murders Israeli children is hailed as a shahid, a martyr.
And it gets worse. It is officially designated (by Clinton in 1997) as a National Historical Landmark, stating: “This monument represents the labor movement’s struggle for workers’ rights.”
It is a monument to Communist anarchic murder. To this day, the Communist Party of Illinois calls its website The Spirit of Haymarket.
Only Communists could hijack May Day (May 4th, Haymarket Martyrs Day – close enough to May 1st to hijack), and celebrate terrorist murder instead of life. Which they did, at the Communists’ Second Internationale meeting in Brussels in 1889, designating May 1st as a “day of international resistance and solidarity against capitalism.”
When Russia was the Soviet Union, every May Day saw a huge parade in Red Square celebrating hatred and envy towards capitalism. The celebration was revived today on Red Square by Putin, who is dedicated to resurrecting the Russian Imperialist Empire.
In this, he will fail, for he is living in the past, trying to reanimate an evil that is history. An evil that has lost its ideological rationale. “Marxism-Leninism” has become history’s poster child for ideological obsolescence. All Putin has left is unvarnished brute Russian thuggishness over subjugated people. An ideal that inspires no one besides Russian thugs.
My own belief is that the day is not far off when the Democrats’ ideological rationale of envy and dependence will be in history’s dustbin as well. Zero’s presidency has so discredited it that history’s stake will be driven through its black heart. The elections of 2014 and 2016 will be the turning point.
The Mayday 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. Socialists Flags. And DRUMS. Always Drums mixed with LATIN music blasting across Union Square. We weren’t in Kansas anymore. REVOLUTION. REVOLUTION. Yeah. That’s the ticket.
AND…the chants followed by the opening speech to inspire the United Commie Workers Rally.
Next we heard from Imani Henry – Peoples Assembly- Workin’ the Crowd.
Enough with the speeches. I moved on to the taking of many pictures of the divergent hoards assembled. My task took wing. Pictures of signs. Lots of signs. Including the white protestors who shilled for The Socialist Green Party, the Marxist. com Party, Bob Avakian’s TRUE Marxist Party. They are the behind the scenes facilitators of the revolution to FREE Mumia. To Dump Trump. To Stop Killer Cops. The END White Supremacy — Cause—- BLACK Lives Matter.
FLICKR Slide show.
BUT, today was more than just speeches and pictures. Antifa arrived and the game changed. I heard an agitated Leftie tell their lead guy to hurry – pointing towards center of the square – there was ” a problem”.
Seems Brittany Venti vs the Antifas was the next event leading to the arrest of this popular streamer. What I think I witnessed prior to the assault is first presented in a series of pictures mounted in video format.
We don’t want you here!” Imani Henry (seen in another video) was leading a ‘wall’ of people already harassing Brittany and forcing her and a friend from a Public Square. “
Something happened between Antifa-guy and Brittney, leading up to a sign hitting her on the head. She says Antifa-guy hit her with the sign. Video that was released shows someone does hit her in the head, And Antifa-guy was bloodied near his left eye in retaliation.
Brittany was not bloodied. Whatever, they were BOTH arrested.
Brittany talks about what happened. It’s a bit long, but she does give perspective on how she was attacked. Link to short tweet video … from @JessixOW – she shows some of the confrontation. This is a good video that shows how long the harassment went on, how it grew, BTW, “WHERE WERE THE POLICE?”
Vocativ link report on assault and arrest
…. an “alt-right” (I HATE that bogus label) social media provocateur.
Venti and anti-fascist (Antifa) protesters clashed, eventually resulting in Venti’s arrest and a bloodied protester. The moments leading up to her arrest were captured on a Periscope stream. After the arrest, she claimed someone hit her with a stick. It’s not yet known with what crime, if any, Venti has been charged.
When asked “what do you have to say to your fans,” she replied, “free Brittany Venti!”
THEN there were the Libertarian kids. They too were assaulted. The assault in action. (vocativ. com)
Another scuffle broke out between Antifa protesters and Trump-supporting Libertarians about 30 minutes later, the latter group eventually being be led across the street. The faction of Trump backers, about 30 people at its height, chanted “Build the wall!” and “You lost!” to the May Day participants in Union Square.
Assaulted. Pushed. Flour-bombed Punched. Crunched. Til finally the police got wind there was something serious happening at the SW end of the Square. No one was actually hurt – that I could see – so perhaps a lot of bluster and show for the cameras- still these Libertarian Free-Speech protestors kept smiles on their faces even in the thick of the “madding” crowd.
Once on the scene, the police pulled them to the island S.E. of the square. Sharing the area with Pro-Trump Build-the-Wall protestors.
Eventually all joined in the chorus BUILD THE WALL. Pumped. Fearless.
Which sent one white Commie flag waving millennial into a seething rage. From the Union Square side, he paced with his Marxist flag, shouting at the patriots.
He was seeing red but not the kind he wanted.
After the assault video
Gen X Millennials. Self-identified as Libertarians. They got spunk. They are NOT Fascists. They are NOT Nazis. They call out Communism, Socialism. The Soviet et al. They have but One Solution: Keep America Free of Totalitarian despots.
But, Never Forget, why THEY were there. THIS was MAYDAY. Commie Day. America, she is BAD. The REVOLUTION is the Only SOLUTION: WORKERS UNITE!
