Once Columbus Day was a time to celebrate the spread of Western Civilization to the New World. Now that we live under a liberal ruling class that regards Western Civilization as bad, few people honor the dying holiday. Occucommies of the San Freakshow Bay area are an exception — however, they have renamed it F*** Columbus Day:
Police arrested 22 people during an ‘anti colonial, anti capitalist” “F–k Columbus Day” march in San Francisco. The march, which was advertised over the traditional Bay Area Occupy hashtags on Twitter and streamed on Occupy livestream, is part of a weekend of activities which included a call for a march against Mexican, Canadian, US embassies worldwide [Saturday]. …
As they marched, they vandalized cars, slashing the tires of one car and breaking the window of another. They also smashed a Starbucks window. About 15 minutes into the march, they began to throw flares and bags of paint with rocks in them at the police who were accompanying the march. …
The marchers posted their intentions on Indy Bay calling for a “rowdy march” through the financial district to fight colonialism and capitalism. In addition they noted it was the 20th anniversary of the first black bloc march disrupting the Columbus Day parade in 1992.
[Monday], the group plans to march in Oakland commemorating the 11th anniversary of the start of the war in Afghanistan. Their statement accuses the military of having “Kill teams”, American soldiers of atrocities and ”burning hundreds of copies of the Holy Quran”. It calls for American troops to rise up and “start a revolt in your ranks”. They have also called elsewhere for “autonomous creative disruptions of the Columbus Day parade” [Monday].
Good thing for the Occucommies that no one prosecutes treason or sedition anymore.
Like Columbus Day, Christmas has been drained of its meaning and downgraded. Any guesses on how it will be renamed by the Occupy crowd?
Caution — liberal language ahead:
