Leftists Cause May Day Damage In Santa Cruz And Asheville

I’m sure this is somehow the fault of the extreme anti-government Bible thumping gun toting TEA Partiers

SANTA CRUZ – A large group of protesters demonstrating at a May Day rally for worker’s and immigrant rights downtown broke off into a riot vandalizing about a dozen businesses around 10:30 p.m. Saturday, police said.

Many in the group were carrying makeshift torches as they marched, breaking storefront windows and writing “anarchist graffiti” on buildings, according to Capt. Steve Clark. Many businesses sustained multiple broken windows including very large storefront windows at Urban Outfitters and The Rittenhouse building. Police believe at least 15 businesses suffered damage.

The violence was initiated from a group holding a rally at the town clock for May Day. Windows at Jamba Juice and Velvet Underground were left shattered and graffiti including anarchy signs were tagged onto buildings.

Because of the size and violent demeanor of the crowd, Santa Cruz police asked for help from all agencies in the county to break up the riot. At one point, protesters lit a fire on the porch of Caffe Pergolesi and blocked access to firefighters, officers said. Police were able to clear out the demonstrators before more damage was caused.

Shockingly, the NY Times, Alan Colmes, and all the others freaking out about the TEA Parties who clean up their own garbage are silent. Frank Rich, Paul Krugman, the folks are the Washington Post, and President Obama have nothing to say. I wonder why?

ASHEVILLE – Video footage captured by Asheville Citizen-Times surveillance cameras shows some among a large group suspected in a Saturday night vandalism spree throwing bricks at windows and dragging newspaper boxes into the street.

Almost all of the 11 people arrested after the vandalism spree in downtown Asheville listed addresses outside Western North Carolina.

The motive behind the vandalism, which caused damage to several O’Henry Avenue storefronts and nearby parked vehicles, remained unclear Sunday.


The anonymous author of a sign posted Sunday on the glass sculpture outside the Grove Arcade at the corner of Page and Battery Park avenues argued that the incident Saturday was connected to May Day, a May 1 holiday honoring and advocating for workers’ rights.

About 10:45 p.m. Saturday, a group of people dressed in dark clothing, some wearing masks and carrying backpacks, threw rocks and bricks through windows of several businesses.

So, when it is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus (a group which is be its very exclusion of anyone other than Black people is racist. Imagine if the GOP had the same thing) making accusations of hurled epithets, no proof, no credible witnesses, no video, no audio, it is all over the media. When it is obvious Democrat voters (the Right side doesn’t go around dressed like, oh, say, anarchists), the national media is silent, and even the locals write the stories in a neutral mode, unwilling to make any accusations against people who are obviously on the Left.
