hahaha, you can't be serious. I have never seen any of these slogans on signs and I have been to dozens of anti-war and anti-imperialism protests.
"I LOVE NY EVEN MORE WITHOUT THE WORLD TRADE CENTER
NAZI KIKES OUT OF LEBANON
CONDI: I'M FIGHTING FOR WHITEY
BEHEAD THOSE WHO INSULT ISLAM"
This shit is rediculous... no self-respecting socialist or anarchist would walk around holding such hate. Take it from me, I am an anarchist.
And instead of giving us so much shit, maybe you should take this very special day (May Day) to thank all of the anarchists and socialists who faught to secure an eight-hour work day for the labor class here in America.
It's amazing what you discover when you just open a book... you should try it sometime.
Instead of taking this May Day to thank those selfless anarchists and socialists who fought for eight-hour work days, I would like to suggest that dimwits like Gavin read Ilya Somin at The Volokh Conspiracy, discussed at The Belmont Club:
A May Day Proposal:
Today is May 1, AKA May Day. 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 regimes. I suggest that we instead use it as a day to commemorate those regimes' millions of victims. The authoritative Black Book of Communism estimates the total at 80 to 100 million dead, greater than that caused by all other twentieth century tyrannies combined. We appropriately have a Holocaust Memorial Day. It is equally appropriate to commemorate the victims of the twentieth century's other great totalitarian tyranny. And May Day is the most fitting day to do so.
When are you going to face reality, Gavin? YOUR reality. The one you would conveniently like to forget, which is that YOUR ideology is perhaps the greatest con ever perpetrated on the human species. When are you going to face the truth about the fact that YOUR ideology was responsible for the deaths and enslavement of millions around the world in the last century and is setting a record pace in this new one. When are you going to face the truth that it is YOUR ideology that gave birth to fascism and open your eyes to the world around you, instead of writing nonsense about imminent fascist states being implemented here? There is more fascism being implemented by people like you at our Univeristies every day than BushMcChimpyHitler is capable of imagining in his wildest dreams of total power.
You think you are so clever, but it is clear you know nothing--nothing about history and nothing about the ideological fantasies you promote.
Obviously, you are just another mindless robot who is only capable of mouthing the party line. When I think of a world controlled by the likes of someone so clueless and out of touch with reality, I worry for the human species.
Let me tell you something, Gavin. I am perfectly serious. If you bothered to click on the links provided you would see they go directly to the pictures of demonstrators like yourself. You think these people with their ridiculous, laughable signs aren't serious? You think groups like Code Pink and ANSWER take any responsibility at all for the consequences of the sick ideology they promote so cavalierly and foolishly?
Whoever coined the term "useful idiot" was being far too kind. You people aren't useful idiots--you are accomplices to murder.
In short, I have nothing nice to say about people like you, Gavin. Frankly,you make me sick. You tell me to read a book? How dare you, you ignorant moron. Why don't you go read some history--the kind that hasn't been doctored by your comrades, preferably. Self-respecting socialist or anarchist? The terms are mutually contradictory and utterly oxymoronic.
I personally hold idiots like you responsible for the incalculable harm that socialism. communism, and all other totalitarian ideologies have wrought on this planet.
I wonder how you can possibly live with so much blood on your hands?
