The Marxists of May

The Marxists of May

Update: The Silent Majority No More has some great coverage of the May Day absurdity, which I urge you all to check out for yourselves! One of the perennial problems faced by the left is the inclination to either devolve into myopic, sectarian bands, or to remain so diffuse and broad in its appeal...

May Day (Take Back Congress)

May Day (Take Back Congress)

Tomorrow is May Day, and the treason lobby will be mobilizing its shock troops to demonstrate its contempt for this country’s laws and American citizens. We urge our followers at American Rattlesnake to use the opportunity to make their voices heard in Congress and the Senate Judiciary Committee, which will begin its markup of...

Iranian and Syrian Freedom

Iranian and Syrian Freedom

One of the fascinating aspects of living in this city is that, for good or ill, you’re exposed to a whole raft of ideologies and political philosophies of which, but for location, you might have remained blissfully ignorant in perpetuity. Granted, some of us choose to remain mired in a state of ignorance notwithstanding...

Rally for the Republic

Rally for the Republic

There is a great ideological divide within this country, even if the two major party candidates don’t accurately reflect it. That’s why I’m pleased to report that our good friend David Webb, in collaboration with some free market allies, has launched a rally intended to strike back at the smiley-faced socialism and denigration of...

Provoking Putin

Provoking Putin

The conviction of and two year prison sentence leveled against anti-clerical, anti-authoritarian riot grrl punk-rock band Pussy Riot should not have come as a surprise to those who have been following the periodic show trials initiated by the Putin regime in order to quell swelling domestic discontent and internal protests. In spite of the inevitability...

Stand Up, Speak Out

I’ll delve more deeply into President Obama’s Unemployment For Americans Act in future updates, but today I’d like to highlight a speech made by the intrepid Michelle Malkin at this weekend’s Right Online conference. It’s particularly apt in light of the President’s continued policy of lashing out at dissenters-not a new phenomenon, unfortunately-such as...

The Esthetics of Occupy

The Esthetics of Occupy

The chalking you see above was one of the first signs I spotted of the organizing that was taking place inside of Bryant Park on May Day. Simplistic, but probably one of the more coherent artistic messages that I encountered as I traveled throughout lower and Midtown Manhattan on May 1st.

More May Day Coverage

  My apologies for not posting-as promised-the second part of my May Day photo-essay. There is some great coverage of May 1st by our friends at Vigilant Squirrel Brigade though, including footage of the attack upon NY ICE. You can find multiple videos of the confrontation-and what led up to it-on VSB’s Youtube channel. You can also...

May Day 2012 (Marxists, Communists, Librarians)

May Day 2012 (Marxists, Communists, Librarians)

One of the hallmarks of demonstrations organized by the left-as anyone who lives in this city can attest-is a consistently muddled message-or assemblage of messages-which often has little bearing on the theme ostensibly animating the protest movement in question. I’m not sure if the occupiers displaying the words of anti-USSR, Marxist Polish philosopher-turned anti-Marxist...

Counterstrike

Counterstrike

That’s the word from organizers of the May Day general strike. No word yet on whether there will be any mass disavowal of loot, booze, or fun. In addition to the May 1st Coalition, whose somewhat muddled agenda includes a call for mass amnesty of  all illegal aliens-a policy suggestion that is akin to pushing...
