On Saturday, May Day protests were held across the country in support of illegal immigration. The Berman Post reported on the protest at New York City’s Union Square. Berman notes that many in the rally were from anti-American groups and have little respect for this country or its’ laws.
A large portion of the rally was done in Spanish, and there were more foreign, and even communist flags, than American. As I have opined before, this is at the very least bad ‘image-wise’. If you are upset that it may become more difficult for you to get and stay in the country, you would think that would mean that you like this country. If you did not, why would you come in the first place, and why would you be upset if you could not stay.
I am not good at estimating crowd size, but I usually give it a try. For this protest my first thought was 1,500+. I spoke to a cop who guessed around 2,000 but also said it was relatively small by the park standards.
The Socialists/Communist were out in force; not just in number of people but in number of different groups.
The Unions were also out in force, and surprising number of them.
Berman noted the protest attendance at 2,000. Using lame stream media math (liberal multiply by 10,000, conservative divide by 10,000) they will list the protest as 200,000 in attendance.
And of course, like most disrespectful leftist protests. they left the mess for someone else to clean up. Just a further waste of our public tax dollars, but what do they care, the majority of them do not pay taxes. They are here for the free stuff provided them with public tax dollars.
Cliff Kincaid has a post up ‘Catholic Money and Tax Dollars Finance Illegal Alien Rally’ where he details the link between the protestors and the support given them by The Catholic Church.
A group organizing a May 1 “May Day” rally in favor of “immigrant rights” in Lafayette Park in front of the White House is financially supported by the Catholic Church, Big Business, the federal government, and various Maryland governmental entities.
CASA de Maryland, an illegal alien support group, is sponsoring the buses that will take hundreds of protesters to the event in the nation’s capital. CASA is considered the biggest promoter and facilitator of illegal aliens in Maryland.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and its Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), which got caught funding the radical group ACORN, are listed on the CASA website as being among its many financial donors and supporters.
Bishop John C. Wester of Salt Lake City, chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Committee on Migration, issued a statement April 27 “in solidarity with the Catholic bishops of Arizona” opposing the enactment and implementation of the Arizona law.
Wester said, “The U.S. Catholic bishops stand in solidarity with the bishops of Arizona in opposing this draconian law. We call upon the Administration to review its impact on civil rights and liberties. We renew our call for the Administration and Congress to work in a bipartisan manner to enact comprehensive immigration reform as soon as possible.”
The Bishops have made it clear that such “comprehensive” reform must include amnesty for illegal aliens as its central component. Many of these aliens are Catholics from Latin America.
Some of you may recall that it was CASA de Maryland that offered a printed book to illegal immigrants telling them how to avoid law enforcement, remain in the country under the radar and what not to say to public officials if questioned. They are an anti-American group that is supported by your tax dollars through HUD and a multitude of other federal, state and local programs.
As I have said on many occasions. This has nothing to do with rights. Business wants the cheap labor, unions want the union dues, Democrats want the votes, Socialist want to take control of the country and of course the Catholic Church wants to increase its’ following.
They are all bent on changing The United States into one huge public welfare state that will ultimately fail. They will sacrifice the security and financial well-being of our nation in order to further their own goals. Then what?
After they have destroyed the last bastion of public freedom in the World, where will they run to? Where will they get their next free handout? Once everything is unionized and government controlled, who will they have to blame for the food shortages, the lack of defense, corrupted officials, rolling power blackouts, unemployment, inflation, lack of public freedoms, rationed food and medical care, undeterred crime, police state law enforcement, unsanitary living conditions and the short miserable lives lived by everyone but the Social Elite Ruling Class?
This is what Socialism does. This is how it always ends. There has never been one time in history that Socialism has worked. It has always ended with three classes of people. The Social Elite Ruling Class, Their Enforcers and the abused and suffering general population. The City of Detroit is a perfect example of a failed Socialist Program.
It is time to educate the masses. For too long we have ignored a public education system that teaches nothing but the socialist values that have failed every society that has been forced to live under them. Liberal Socialist re-write history to hide the failures of Socialism and to hide the successes of a free capitalist society.
Liberal Socialist hate America. They hate freedom. They only enjoy the power they have to force others to become miserable. It is a sickness that infests our nation and is magnified by a government media that cannot be trusted to tell the people the truth.
Socialism does not work! It never has. It never will. Spread the word and vote the Socialist out every government office in the land. We can no longer suffer with power-hungry government officials that do not represent us. We The People must control this nation and not a group of Social Elitist bent on our destruction.
This is an interesting time we live in. Our nation is being threatened like it has not been since The Revolution that founded it. If we do not take it back now, we never will.
