After a slew of videos, I now turn to my photographic files from yesterdays Occupy Chicago May Day march.
Click on any image to make it larger.
The flag of their nation. Union Park on Chicagos West Side is where the march began.
Yes, the banner reads, Open the f*cking borders. Keep it classy, leftists.
His shirt declares, Smash all borders with communist revolution.
Their signs contain a Karl Marx quote.
Chicago school kids: Do you know where your unionized teacher is?
This picture is priceless in terms of telling this story. The red flag contains a rendering of communist murderer Che Guevara. But the white flag is unique. On it you will see Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels, Vladimir Lenin, and the second worst mass murderer in history, Josef Stalin. I never dreamed that Id see a flag with Stalins image in my country. What an abomination. My mother-in-law knew people who died in Stalins Gulags.
Who was the biggest murderer of all time? Another communist, Mao Zedong.
At the post-march Federal Plaza rally the president of a different Teamsters localswatted down my video camera. Still, Id like to ask the president of Teamsters Local 705 if he felt comfortable walking with communists, socialists, and anarchists, to borrow Rebelpundits questioning.
In regards to Greece, yes, We are all in the same struggle. Why? Because President Obamas reckless spending put us there.
The Israeli-Palestinian dispute is not analogous to South African apartheid. Oh, there is apartheid in Mexico? Who knew?!?
Its not a left-wing rally without Israel bashing.
The left is always quick to point the finger and call others racists.
The International Workers of the World, commonly known as Wobblies, have been socialists for over 100 years.
The occupiers decry bailouts, but they are oddly quiet about Obamas bailouts of General Motors and Chryslerwhich gave the United Autoworkers part-ownership of the automakers. Crony capitalism at work.
Bradley Manning is accused of disclosing government secrets in the WikiLeaks scandal. To the ultra-left hes a hero. Thats appalling. Besides, what does Manning have to do with Wall Street greed?
Capitalism is failing because of Obamas socialist policies.
Liberals regularly condemn conservatives alleged mixture of religion and politics.
Back in the USSR?
Sometimes when I report on these events I wonder if the establishment media was at the same rally. Which is why Im including two photographs here that I used in my Teamsters post last night. Chicago Tribune, where are your May Day pictures of the socialists and the communists? Chicago Sun-Times, where are yours?
If you arent going to report the entire story, then dont bother at all.
Here is Urban Infidels report from Occupy Wall Streets May Day hootenanny.
Unfortunately, there is nothing I can say about these creatures that hasn’t already been said.
Can’t we just shoot them? /s (sort of)
The crowds seem pathetically sparse> :-p

OMG.... we really are doomed.
"So we're marchin' wit' the Commies. You gotta problem wit' dat?"
Best approach is to ignore them (aside from throwing them in the slammer when they break the law). Unfortunately the MSM won't do that.
