All over the world, leftist gathered to “celebrate” May Day. Of course, with Communism being a dysfunctional and destructive system, and one that can only be applied and maintained by high levels of violence, there were violent clashes all over the world. Rather than cover everything, I thought I might cover what happened right here in the US, and Santa Cruz.
Infidel’s Paradise has posted this video:
The author over at Kill Cactus is being very non-committal about the origin of the violence. They did post the video to Youtube. Also, they appear to be leftists themselves, but appalled at the anarchists.
I would suggest that based on the dress of the vandals, as well as the fact that they had weapons on hand to do the vandalism, that this is likely the work of anarchists. Additionally, they attacked large corporate outlets with their vandalism and arson, so it seems to be a safe bet that the anarchists are at work here.
Here is a local media report that uses the same video that I posted above.
I would recommend archiving the video, the site that originated it might take it down for cover-up.
For some perspective, let’s look at some facts:
Acts of vandalism happening anywhere near a year’s worth of Tea Party events: 0
Acts of vandalism perpetrated by the left at one May Day event: Multiple
The chances of the MSM covering this on a national level: 0
More as I find it.
