It may be a case of everything old is new again. Much like during the turbulent late ’60s and early ’70s when more than just a few hard-left individuals managed to get their images splashed across television screens across the planet, much like their forefathers of almost half a century ago, today’s members and supporters of The Revolutionary Communist Party, USA are propagating as loud as they can to convince the masses that police departments across the nation are dyed-in-the-wool racists, referred to as “Pigs,” who seek to murder as many blacks and Latinos as possible.
Despite his critics decrying as a case of too little too late, Mayor Bill de Blasio is asking protesters to take a break from marching though Manhattan until the recently murdered Officers Ramos and Liu are buried, as reported by CNN via KFOR (of Oklahoma City, OK) on Dec. 23, 2014. Nevertheless, protesters have overwhelmingly decided to ignore de Blasio’s call by clogging the streets of Manhattan’s Upper East Side bastion of liberalism. Amid chants of “Hey-hey, ho-ho. These racist cops have got to go”; others carried signs saying “Jail killer cops” while others toted placards emblazoned “Stop the war on Black America.”
With the latest target of the Communists and their allies being the NYPD, the burn-this-mother-down crowd ignore the fact that 60 percent of the New York cops are from minority groups, mainly Latinos and blacks. The Communists and friends have also turned a blind eye to the obvious that the two slain officers, Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, were ethnically Latino and Chinese, receptively.
As reported by the decidedly left-of-center Salon.com on Dec. 23, 2014, the likes of former Mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani, New York Congressman Peter King and Missouri Sen. Roy Blount and others have all been openly critical of Barack Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio for stoking what they see as the flames of racial division and also emboldening anti-police marchers across the nation. Perhaps the best illustration would be members of the NYPD turning their backs on de Blasio in the wake of the execution-style slayings of Officers Ramos and Liu.
There have been smattering of pro-police rallies across the country, such as a small gathering of cop supporters in NYC who had a yelling match with a much larger who chanted such ditties as “How to you spell terrorist? N-Y-P-D!” If the philosopher George Santayana proves prophetic, The Big Apple could be on a collision course of a latter-day ‘Hard Hat Riot’ à la 1970.
As previously covered by Examiner.com, during May of 1970, “a relative handful of NYC construction workers, many of whom were World War II, Korea War and Viet-Nam War veterans” took matters into their own hands when “Marxist led anti-war agitators established a base camp at the statue of George Washington on Wall Street, all the while waving Communist Viet Cong and North Vietnamese battle flags while they burned and urinated on Old Glory.
That’s when a reported 200 of New York’s Toughest decided enough was enough. The iron workers, the carpenters and the cement mixers then proceeded to charge the makeshift camp and forcibly replaced the Communist banners with the Stars and Stripes. As news reports of the day explained, it was 200 construction workers who ‘attacked’ 1,000 of the ‘peace marchers.’
What happened next caught just about everyone by surprise. The construction workers were unexpectedly joined by white collar workers from the New York Stock Exchange, many of them were also military veterans. The NYSE reportedly emptied as stock brokers, analysts and even office administrative workers took to the streets and fought shoulder-to-shoulder along side the Hard Hats as they took on those who reveled in desecrating the American flag.”
