Well, it's about time!
I KNOW I wasn't the only one writing about the Socialist involvement in the recent "Peace" Rallies, and the initial massive Pro Illegal Immigration Marches all across America, but it sure felt like it.
Many organizations active in the recent protests are suddenly doing all they can to distance themselves from International Answer, and their local affiliates across the country, such as in Los Angeles.
And this backpedaling involves more than just providing American Flags to everyone attending a march, and even giving them out to people waving flags of other countries, and encouraging them to wave THEM instead. ;-D
Captain Ed, of Captain Quarters, has the latest info, and related links, on how the proposed May Day Boycott ( Let's all walk off the job, and don't go shopping! THAT will show them! ) is losing momentum.
From a Wash. Post piece he found:
A panel of immigration activists said yesterday that it will not encourage workers and families to walk off the job and keep their children from school as part of a May 1 boycott, but will hold voter-recruitment and petition drives instead.
The announcement by activists from the District, Chicago and Los Angeles at a news conference in Washington underlined the split among the mostly Latino activist groups that led huge demonstrations in more than 140 cities in recent weeks, and shows that the grass-roots movement is operating at cross purposes toward the same end -- immigration reform and legal status for illegal immigrants.
Hee, hee. ;-D
The Captain points out, however:
Other groups plan to push the strike, making the split a potentially bitter one if the crowds do not turn out as planned. A representative of Hermandad Mexicana Latinoamericana, one of the groups pressing for the walkout, says that their plans have not changed. This should surprise no one, as HML has partnered with International ANSWER, the last of the Stalinist apologist groups, to select the old Communist holiday to highlight their open-borders philosophy.
The 2 groups above released a brief Press Release that tried to reduce the damage inflicted by the Post story.
