Unbelievable. Obama has declared May 1, the traditional day used by the Soviet Union to celebrate the power of the state through military parades and such, to be "loyalty day." Not "let's respect what America stands for" day or "celebrate liberty day" but "promise unthinking loyalty to our government masters" day.
This is particularly ironic as the other major competing proposal for Mayday is as a remembrance for the people killed by communism. So, your choice today. Salute the victims of out-of-control state power, or pledge your loyalty to the state.
