Illegal Immigration Protests: Bolshevik Revolution Redux?

Updated

The protests were scheduled for today, May 1, for a reason: it's May Day, the day set aside to celebrate the communist uprising. From CNSNews:

Monday, May Day, is International Worker's Day and the communist celebration of the Bolshevik Revolution. It is also a day when illegal immigrants plan to boycott work, school and shopping in an effort to show the contribution of undocumented aliens to the U.S. economy.


Protesters will march in Chicago, New York and Los Angeles to urge Congress not to support a bill introduced by U.S. Rep. James Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.), which would make it a felony to illegally enter the U.S. or facilitate the illegal entry of someone else.

Calling it "a day without an immigrant," boycott organizers chose Monday because of its socialist and communist roots, according to Lee Siu Hin of Immigrant Solidarity Network. "We're linking workers' rights and immigrant rights. That should be very clear," Lee told Cybercast News Service.

The masses of illegal immigrants probably don't realize they're being used as tools for communist propaganda. They're being told that the protests and boycott are to celebrate the contributions of immigrants in America when in fact they are being use by the communist party in an attempt to manipulate America's political landscape:

The Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP) is endorsing Monday's boycott.


In 1917, Bolshevik communists led by Vladimir Lenin overthrew the Russian government, leading eventually the formation of the Soviet Union in 1922. While the Bolshevik Revolution was in October, the RCP celebrates it on May 1.

The RCP is calling Monday "Revolution #45."

"On May 1, we celebrate our achievements in this world-historic struggle and especially the first great milestones on that path: the October Revolution of 1917, where the proletariat for the first time seized and held power for nearly 40 years in what became the Soviet Union; and the Chinese Revolution, and especially the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution," the RCP website states.

Today's protests are an attempt at an immigrant revolution. The protests' organizers, ANSWER, a communist organization founded by Ramsey Clark, have convinced the illegal and legal immigrants that they are the oppressed "proletariat" exploited by the "bourgeoisie," which is why they use language (we clean your toilets, we watch your children, we pick your fruit and vegetables) that pits the illegal and legal immigrants against the middle class. This is classic communist propaganda meant to "empower" the masses of the "oppressed" immigrants and to intimidate congress and the American people into giving illegal immigrants full amnesty.

Update: Nanman at The Influence Peddler discusses how May 1 is the day dedicated to the celebration of the Chicago martyrs.

Update II: Thomas Lifson and A.M. Mora y Leon at The American Thinker take a close look at the part Hugo Chavez played in today's illegal immigrant protests.

Update III: Take a look at the website The Socialist Worker Online. It confirms the point I made that communists are behind these protests and that the immigrants are simply a tool:

FOR THE first time in six decades, International Workers Day will be celebrated on U.S. soil with mass working-class demonstrations on May 1. May Day, celebrated the world over, commemorates the seismic upheaval inside the U.S. that launched the struggle for the eight-hour workday in 1886, a time when native-born workers had few rights and immigrants had still fewer, yet both united in a class-wide battle.


The decision to organize a national day of protest for immigrant rights on May 1 this year is a conscious nod toward the traditions embodied by this working-class holiday, in which immigrants have played such a vital role historically.

May 1, 2006, holds the potential to begin to revive that tradition, from America's grassroots. The movement's most powerful slogan, "a day without immigrants," is based upon a strategy of social struggle tied explicitly to the power of workers to withhold their labor--which successfully built the U.S. union movement in the first few decades of the 20th century.

These protests are a front for the real goal, which is the revival of communism/socialism/collectivism. This explains why the unions are involved in these protests. Labor unions are the embodiment of collectivist thought.

Vagabondia agrees with me.

Update IV:
Stickam has live streaming video of the LA protests if you're interested in watching.

Robb H:

"Officially, the organizer of the Washington demonstration was International ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War & End Racism). But ANSWER is run by WWP activists, to such an extent that it seems fair to dub it a WWP front. Several key ANSWER officials -- including spokesperson Brian Becker -- are WWP members. Many local offices for ANSWER's protest were housed in WWP offices. Earlier this year, when ANSWER conducted a press briefing, at least five of the 13 speakers were WWP activists. They were each identified, though, in other ways, including as members of the International Action Center.

The IAC, another WWP offshoot, was a key partner with ANSWER in promoting the protest. It was founded by Ramsey Clark, attorney general for President Lyndon Johnson in the 1960s. For years, Clark has been on a bizarre political odyssey, much of the time in sync with the Workers World Party. As an attorney, he has represented Lyndon LaRouche, the leader of a political cult. He has defended Serbian war criminal Radovan Karadzic and Pastor Elizaphan Ntakirutimana, who was accused of participating in the genocide in Rwanda in 1994. Clark is also a member of the International Committee To Defend Slobodan Milosevic. The international war-crimes tribunal, he explains, "is war by other means" -- that is, a tool of the West to crush those who stand in the way of U.S. imperialism, like Milosevic. A critic of the ongoing sanctions against Iraq, Clark has appeared on talking-head shows and refused to concede any wrongdoing on Saddam's part. There is no reason to send weapons inspectors to Iraq, he told CNN's Wolf Blitzer: "After 12 years of brutalization with sanctions and bombing they'd like to be a country again. They'd like to have sovereignty again. They'd like to be left alone."

The protests were scheduled for today, May 1, for a reason: it's May Day, the day set aside to celebrate the communist uprising.

It's my understanding that many Euro countries celebrate this in much the same way that we celebrate Labor Day. While the commies use it, it isn't strictly a commie "holiday".

They're being told that the protests and boycott are to celebrate the contributions of immigrants in America when in fact they are being use by the communist party in an attempt to manipulate America's political landscape...

I think that this is ascribing far too much influence to the commies. I think that they've latched on to this movement in the hopes that they can use it to gain a bit of press coverage and influence for themselves, not that they are in any way leading or really even shaping it.

Today's protests are an attempt at an immigrant revolution.

Not quite... or, at least, not yet. For now, the illegals and their allies are simply pushing for the laws to be changed. No doubt: there are SOME in the movement who are openly seditious. I hope that they are the very fringe. If not, we've got an even bigger problem than we think.

This is classic communist propaganda meant to "empower" the masses of the "oppressed" immigrants and to intimidate congress and the American people into giving illegal immigrants full amnesty.

Add "democrat" to "communist". The dems are all about identity / victim politics and hope to capture the Latino vote in the same way that they've captured the black vote since the mid-60s: "The Man was oppressing you, but WE gave you amnesty and free medical care and didn't make you learn English. WE care about you. Vote for us."

Cousin Dave:

OK, here's what's interesting: It is admittedly anecdotal evidence, but I am hearing all kinds of things about how much more pleasant average social conditions are around the country today. Traffic is calmer. Lines in stores are shorter. People are more polite. I've noticed it myself today: no one wanting to go 90 in the right lane on the interstate, or flashing their lights at anyone who doesn't immediately get out of their way. No one slowing down to 15 MPH on the ramps. No red-light runners. And the lines were indeed shorter than usual at the grocery store. And I haven't noticed any place that is closed or short-staffed. In short, today is a nice day and I haven't been inconvenienced at all.

Could be coincidence. But I think we ought to encourage the reconquistas to continue their boycott for several more weeks, just to make sure.

A Legal Immigrant:

I am an immigrant whose family worked hard to win an opportunity to legally enter this country, study here, and contribute valuable skills to this countries economy. Nothing was easy, nothing was handed to us.

I feel that people who illegally cross the boarder have cheated the system and expects to reap the same rewards as those who have followed the rules. The justice system in this country is partly built on the principle that each person is responsible for his or her actions and must be punished accordingly, irregarless of who they are.

If someone who had done many charitable deeds in his life commits a crime, should he go unpunished? Entering the United States without permission is illegal and it does not matter who you are or what you do after you arrive.

If the work that "undocumented" immigrants do is truely in demand AND there are no "undocumented" workers around, wouldn't big business be lobbying for special work visas? Arguing that you snuck into this country for the benefit of its economy doesn't make sense.

And now, not showing up to work today just uncovers the underhandedness of the whole situation. Yes, this country is being held hostage by a group of people who broke its laws to be here. Now they are demanding the same rewards as those who have opted to follow the rules.

Michael, yew hadn't ortta said tha-at! ;-} I guess that I can take heart in you saying %#^^ instead of spelling it out explicitly like I did yesterday. Guess I need to start keeping tabs on my blood pressure again. LOL

A Legal Immigrant, thanx for those plain spoken words, straight to the point. I have said before, it's an insult to those of you that are trying to do things the right way to have those here violating the law demand their 'rights'. Whether they like it or not, the law is the law. Except for using the word irregardless, you put in to words what those of us without your perspective couldn't do. I only mention that because the obligatory irregardless is not a word! comment will come from someone, it always seems to happen. I wish they would just add it to the unabriged dictionary like they do other 'new' words, it's become a part of the lexicon.

We don't have to be held hostage, there's 290 million citizens, and I believe a majority of us disagree with these illegals. Close the border now.

Lurking Observer:

For those who think that there needs to be an amnesty, or better yet, a more open immigration policy, what about the economics of all this?

Is it possible that the reason the jobs created in the Bush era, which are regularly denigrated as "go nowhere jobs," and the fact that middle class wages have not been rising (in real terms) as fast as y'all think they should be, is because of not only outsourcing to India and elsewhere, but also to the depressive effects of large numbers of illegal immigrants willing to work for sub-minimum wages?

IF that is correct, then isn't allowing an amnesty the worst possible policy, since the outsourcing would continue, and there'd be additional illegal immigrants streaming in, hoping to take advantage of either this or subsequent amnesties? Thereby keeping wages and living standards low?

Drew E.:

ANSWER did not organize the Denver protest against H.B. 4437. Yes, 4437 is the reson for these protests. I know there are those who wish we still had HUAC and the Soviet Union. After all the Communists were behind the civil rights movement and the 60's-70's out of Viet Nam protests.. and of course the ERA of the 70's.

As for those concerned about Coumminists how do you feel about Communist China being the main player in loaning us money to support the "drunken sailor on shore leave" debt accumulated by a Repbulican President, Senate and House? I proudly marched in Denver. If this were 1953 and I was brought before a HUAC hearing and asked "Are you now or have you ever been a member of the Communist Party? I would answer "no" Just wondering how many here concerned about communists even know what the heck HUAC was?

If you want to pursue who the Communists are controlling may I suggest you check out the spinless actions of Bush/Cheney/Rice to the supression of democracy and religion being conducted in COMMUNIST CHINA..(hey you seldom challange people you owe serious money to)
