May Day is a Marxist holiday traditionally marked by protests.
By Kira Davis
May Day is celebrated around the world as the day of the “worker”. Basically, it’s a day to eschew capitalism and protest for the joys and superiority of communism. It is a Marxist holiday traditionally marked by protests (in free countries, of course. Communists don’t like those pesky public gatherings!).
In Los Angeles May Day will bring massive protests, but it won’t be the Marxists shouting for “economic and social justice”, it will be illegal immigrants.
As an immigrant myself, I find the idea of a group of illegal immigrants protesting for their cause on this day extremely insulting. Here’s a short list of my problems with you protesters today:
- Capitalism is what drew you to America. We are prosperous BECAUSE OF CAPITALISM! Our shores are flooded with legal and criminal immigrants each day and it wasn’t communism or socialism that brought them here. Mixing an illegal immigration protest with the Marxist day is a slap in the face to the citizens of this country, whom you are demanding overlook your crime and your rudeness. You are a guest in someone’s home, act like it.
- Your signs say things like “Jobs not war!” and “We just want to work” among other clever, well-thought out slogans. And your method of asking for that work is tying up traffic in one of the most congested cities in the country, preventing people from getting to work or doing the jobs they already have which in turn prevents productivity which in turn prevents job creation. You are not only rude, you are stupid. We have enough stupid people in America, we don’t need to be importing any more. You don’t help your case with such nonsense.
- Back to your rudeness: all day long we will hear people from your crowd say things like “We just want to be treated fairly; to come out of the shadows and be recognized for what we contribute”. Your first act on these shores was to break the law. Coming here without the proper paperwork and visas is AGAINST THE LAW. That makes you a criminal. Then you have the nerve to get all crunchy when Americans (and other legal immigrants) who abide by the law insist that you do too. It’s like you kicked down the door of your neighbor’s house and then became irate when they wouldn’t fix you dinner. Rude!
- There was a time in the history of this nation when people like you were rightfully ashamed of their communist proclivities. These things were spoken of behind closed doors, in secret. Those who held Marxist sensibilities understood that Americans do not take kindly to communists and freedom-haters. Now, you hold parades in public and proudly speak out against the nation and system that has brought more prosperity to more people than any other nation in the history of mankind; you get interviewed for the morning and evening news – and you don’t even have the decency to be embarrassed!
- Finally, every year on this day I am reminded of our politicians and leaders who tell us it is nearly impossible to hunt down and deport a majority of illegal aliens. And then I look at downtown Los Angeles at a group of people carrying signs that literally announce their illegal status. I suppose we can’t deport every last person here illegally, but we can start with the communists announcing themselves at a May Day rally!
