Need More Than One May Day Celebration

We need a freespirit gathering that demands equalitarianism. Things like homes for all, free medical care for all, whopping wealth taxation on the super rich, etc. And no more wars and ruination of other people's countries.
We do not need millions of people immigrating here because we wrecked their societies and infrastructure. We need the rogue CIA to stop doing that.

We do not need some leetcrafted zomboconvergence that demands "immigrant rights" for unfortunate folks whose cultures "we" (or our taxes) have destroyed! We need to fix what we have demolished in their countries so they can go home, not just bring them all here!

Of course there will be a leetcrafted zomboconvergence that demands "solidarity" to some "resistance" -- which is plainly "resistance" against Donald Trump --- _BUT_ where was this "resistance" when:

The Smirking Chimp -- Double Standards: Where Were the Liberal Protestors During Obama's Wars? -- by Mike Whitney -- January 26, 2017
 http://www.smirkingchimp.com/node/70852


[....] But where were these people when Obama was bombing wedding parties in Kandahar, or training jihadist militants to fight in Syria, or abetting NATO's destructive onslaught on Libya, or plunging Ukraine into fratricidal warfare, or collecting the phone records of innocent Americans, or deporting hundreds of thousands of undocumented workers, or force-feeding prisoners at Gitmo, or providing bombs and aircraft to the Saudis to continue their genocidal war against Yemen?

Where were they?

They were asleep, weren't they? Because liberals always sleep when their man is in office, particularly if their man is a smooth-talking cosmopolitan snake-charmer like Obama who croons about personal freedom and democracy while unleashing the most unspeakable violence on civilians across the Middle East and Central Asia.

The United States has been at war for eight straight years under Obama, and during that time, there hasn't been one sizable antiwar march, demonstration or protest. Nothing. No one seems to care when an articulate bi-racial mandarin kills mostly people of color, but when a brash and outspoken real estate magnate takes over the reigns of power, then 'watch out' because here come the protestors, all three million of them!

Is May Day about demanding equality, or is it really just about bolstering monster Democrats such as Hillary Rodham Clinton??? (WE CAME, WE SAW, HE DIED, HAHAHAHAHA!!!)

Celebrate freespirit equality, not leetcraft trendyness!!!

May Day has nothing to do with Obama or Obama or Obama or Obama or Obama or Obama or Obama or Obama or Obama or Obama
Nor does it have anything to do with Clinton or Clinton or Clinton or Clinton or Clinton or Obama or Clinton or Obama or Trump or Trump and Obama and or Clinton

May Day has nothing to do with the wars the USA has involved themselves in with just about every single <p>resident we have had

If you don't like immigrants go to another website where you can preach to your own choir that hate immigrants.

I am sure we ALL KNOW what we need to do in those countries since WE (USA) destroyed them. Yes we destroyed their countries, I agree it needs to be rectified fixed or repaired.

WE ALL KNOW the USA "need[s] to fix what we have demolished in those countries so they can go home" or [and] meanwhile ......STAY HERE - Hell we ruined your country!

WE ALL KNOW WE {USA] FUCKED THEIR LAND AND FAMILIES UP --> AND --> thus

THEY ARE WELCOME HERE ON THIS LAND "WE" STOLE FROM THE NATIVE AMERICANS AND MEXICO!

COME HERE YOU ARE SAFE AND WILL BE WELCOMED!

so "we need another MAY DAY"? may ass!! - what we need is anti immigrants to hang their heads in shame and to shut up about "their country" (this is stolen land)

From Wikipedia:
May Day is a public holiday usually celebrated on 1 May. It is an ancient Northern Hemisphere spring festival[1] and a traditional spring holiday in many cultures. Dances, singing, and cake are usually part of the festivities. In the late 19th century, May Day was chosen as the date for International Workers' Day by the Socialists and Communists of the Second International to commemorate the Haymarket affair in Chicago.[2] International Workers' Day can also be referred to as "May Day", but it is a different celebration from the traditional May Day.
Modern May Day ceremonies in the U.S. vary greatly from region to region and many unite both the holiday's "Green Root" (pagan) and "Red Root" (labour) traditions

Nothing about v Clinton or Obama or Clinton or Obama Clinton or Obama or Clinton or Obama Clinton or Obama or Clinton or Obama Clinton or Obama or Clinton or Obama Clinton or Obama or Clinton or Obama Clinton or Obama or Clinton or Obama Clinton or Obama or Clinton or Obama Clinton or Obama or Clinton or Obama Clinton or Obama or Clinton or Obama Clinton or Obama or Clinton or Obama NOTHING ....ZILCH nothing to do with those freaks.

Mayday is not about lefty its not about Trump, Bush, Nixon, Clinton, Obama, Biden, Sanders, Regan
Its not about DEMOCRATS
Its not about REPUBLICANS
Its not about left wing or the idiot right wing
It has NOTHING to do with our 2party corrupt system
Its not about anti-war or how big the march is or isn't or wasn't or was

Anti-Immigrants (are the one) that seem to need a (their own) new May Day -&- Good luck with that idiot idea! LOLOLOL

It's All About Immigration -- We Have No Other Problems 13.Apr.2019 17:21

Santa

Forget that we have homeless people all over the place in the US. Forget that half of us are fatally addicted to pain medicine. Forget that robots are taking all the jobs. Forget that most people can't afford to visit the doctor. Forget that trillions are going for useless military technology. Forget that trillions are going straight into banker's fat pockets. Forget that millions of US kids don't get enough to eat. Forget the many millions who sit in US prisons for no reason. Forget that the roads are full of potholes. Forget that young people owe trillions on student debt and almost none of them can afford to own homes.

Forget all that totally unimportant stuff that May Day can not possibly be about.

The NEW MAY DAY is all about anti-Trump code-words like "RESISTANCE".

And most especially it is about moving hundreds of million of suckers out of their homes in South America and into the US where they have no long-term future because they don't speak English and their cultural education is grossly incompatible with that of the people who already reside in the US.

Because the CIA has operated a gigantic public relations operation to convince these poor marks to abandon their South American homes and journey perilously to the US to create total chaos, both for themselves and for the current inhabitants. Because the leet ruling establishment must maintain total control by means of constant churning and chaos production.

And even if people are somehow deluded into thinking of themselves as equalitarian or progressive or leftist because they oppose all the wretched conditions listed in the the first paragraph above, they are to be persuaded by a humongous public opinion zomboconvergence orchestrated by the CIA astroturf machine into believing that they must be fascist "xenophobes" is they refuse to go along with the enormous human transplantation disaster.

So the CIA is now quite busy creating fancy posters designed to guilt-trip the equalitarians into believing themselves somehow degenerate and evil if they fail to conform with the CIA's brand new "immigration" zombocovergence.
