Pin It

On March 10th, 2011 we attended the ChicagoSocialists.org and Immigrant Youth Justice League protest at downtown Chicago’s Daley Plaza. Referred to as “Liberation Square” by some of the “intellectually elite” protesters in attendance. One protester claimed it was symbolic of the recent rebellion in Egypt that ousted the former President Hosni Mubarak. We wanted to find out what the protesters were out in support or opposition to.

Pro-communism, pro-socialism, anti-American, opposed to borders and ending all deportations, pretty sums up the message. You can see plenty of socialist and communist propaganda as well as one sign prominently displaying a large red swastika on the right shoulder of Uncle Sam. Presumably, this is symbolic of the oppression these people seem to feel from America, the very country they are begging to never have to leave. An invitation to the event on facebook shows members of the group advocating violence, however the protest did remain peaceful. (Continued below)

One protester claims that the socialist and communist marchers were just “tagging along”, however this seems to be an understatement as the Chicago Socialists.org Invitation to the large march scheduled to join the Immigrant Youth was promoted and prominently displayed on their website; ChicagoSocialists.org. The socialist marchers also accounted for doubling the number of attendees at the protest from a couple hundred to a total of roughly five hundred people. Ironically, the theme of the protest was “Undocumented, Unafraid and Unapologetic”, yet some of the protesters kept their faces covered for the duration of the entire gathering.

Unfortunately for the protesters, many of whom could not explain the meaning of the very signs they were proudly holding in their own hands, also had a very skewed view of America’s history and the principles behind the country’s founding. At the end of day, it seems a very clear message was delivered from some very confused citizens and “undocumented” what ever they’re called.

Can't you just imagine?
