May Day Mayday: They’re Back

 The violent acts recently perpetrated by self-proclaimed anarchists in Seattle (and elsewhere) should be no surprise, really.  You can call it whatever you want – anarchy, for instance – but this IS communism at it’s root….the threat of (if not actual) mob violence being more-or-less it’s tool of first and last resort.

And, whatever they might say, the OWS and, yes, even the labor movement – more generally – are no different.  Take some time to actually study the history of the labor movement, beginning perhaps with the Haymarket Affair, one poignant moment in history in which the urge to canonize  “anarchists” really took hold.  In their memory, I offer this brilliant bit of satire (with a hat tip and thanks to Rogue Government.)  – HT
