Right on queue, Seattle’s May Day march devolved into street theater as ninja hipsters grabbed their iPhone5’s, Guy Fawkes masks, black flags and Nike sneakers and descended on downtown to flip off anybody who asked them to articulate the reasons behind their “anti-capitalist” march against the Man.
Do the irony-challenged realize they are protesting on a safe little bubble of a progressive theme park? Seattle is a sanctuary city that celebrates a statue of Lenin, has a socialist-driven city hall pushing for a $15 per hour minimum wage and has relentlessly driven cars out of the city by replacing roads with streetcar tracks, bike paths and tunnels to nowhere. Isn’t this what they want?
Maybe all the anger is due to the sheer brutality of the Seattle Police Department. After all, they didn’t hand out Doritos like at Hempfest.
