    For those unaware, hopefully you can get out of town early like me.

    May Day march expected to draw hundreds of illegal immigrants
    (Seattle Times)

    And it's not just for illegal immigrants. It's an all purpose grievance day....

    Recall from last year (MyOwnSide.com ...complete with photos)

    I don't think we (pro open-carriers) are welcome.

    So did you see this part?

    It is unlikely anyone participating in the march will be arrested by immigration authorities. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Lorie Dankers said the agency does not "conduct random immigration enforcement."

    How does that square with the random checks now being performed in Northern Washington and the San Juans?

    Oly had it's usual May Day mini riot. Some bozos broke some windows in a couple of banks. OPD rounded 'em up pretty quick though. Good job!

    It's pathetic when a large group of illegal aliens can plana march, announce the route and time, and there isn't a bus parked at the end of that route. Sometimes I really f-ing hate it here.

    In Arizona, the illegals drive a bus right up to the border and pick up their brethren....while waving at the Border Patrol. I think they have lunch together too.

    If I recall correctly the first of these "Parade Protests" drew Thousands of marchers in Seattle. Yesterday's only drew Hundreds. If the public would just ignore them eventually they won't even be able to get coverage by the local Radio/TV stations.

    The bigger the fuss made over these protests the more attention they get and therefore bigger turnouts.

    Ignore the protests and put the pressure on our government reps to ENFORCE THE LAWS in existance.

    I wonder what would've happened if someone had anonymously reported that there were illegal terrorists participating in the march?... Would they have then started checking ID's (under the Patriot Act, so they could get around the 4th Amendment and our State Constitution... which I don't like) and then find/arrest/deport the illegals?

    Not saying it should be done, but it seems like something that someone with an agenda could do to really upset some illegal-luvin' morons.

    The Seattle PI headline today is "Protesters Unite in Peace on May Day." Apparently, they didn't see what happened in Olympia :?.

    How about a "Parade Participant Registration Booth" where they have to show ID?

    I always though that May Day was when the Communist held their big parade every year? So do all these morons support the Communist position or are they just too stupid to find their own date?

    Never happen. It makes sense and would actually catch the illegals so they could be deported.

    Probably a combination of both. Labor has always marched on May Day since the early part of this century because they did, at that time anyway, support the Communist position. Whether or not they still do, May Day has become a labor (in the workers rights) sense of the word. I still think that it is tied to Communism and I think that the current protests illustrate this quite nicely. Get rid of laws that protect our country or business owners and give it all to the downtrodden worker.

    Some of the tinfoil hat crowd in Oly think the feds are inserting plants in the local "activist community" cointelpro style... That works. Blame the feds for the wide eyed rock throwing anarchists! :P

    So which one of you guys in the OC activist community is a fed plant?

    Here is what we are dealing with in AZ. Several videos on this site... worth a watch. Pretty much along the same lines as the San Juan stops.

    I think that is just in WA. If you recall back in 05 or 06. They had a big raid in NC on an air force base. They took all the workes that were working on bldg. I think that might have been a radum search or they knew about it and picked them up. The protest would not be random. They know that they will be there so pick them up.

    Check out what the bozo Pete Bohmer had to say about the recent violence in Oly. For those who don't know, Bohmer is a professor of Marxism at The Evergreen State College, and is happy to take a paycheck from the state.

    Yeah, I'm thinking about moving. I know that's what they want, but I'm so sick of all of the elitist crap in this state.

    It's exactly what "they" want...you can move but it will follow you. I see more and more leftist hotspots across the US.
