“Mostly Peaceful” May Day Rally In SF Turns Violent As Pro-Illegal Immigrant Protesters Attack And Injure Minutemen

The City Square blog was there and has a first hand report:

The SF police pushed back, keeping the pro-illegals on the other side of Polk street.


In the foreground in the photo above are the pro-illegal protestors, behind them is a line of police, then Polk street, then police tape and barricades, then a another line of policemen, then several parked cars, then more metal barricades, then the forty or so Minutemen protesters. The police were being careful. I would have gotten more photos of the Minutemen side but the police were not letting anyone near them.

Also, as shown above, the police had their backs to the Minutemen and faced the May Day crowd. Despite all the media reports about “right wing” violence, the police clearly knew which side was peaceful and which side was dangerous.

Uncoverage has a local tv news video of the protest. I kid you not – Lisa Amin Gulezian, reporting for the SF ABC affiliate made sure to note: “for the most part the event was peaceful, but…”

The City Square reports that the protest got ugly towards the end.

At the end of the demonstration, I watched as the police escorted the Minutemen out of the area. Apparently the escort did not last long enough. ABC News reports that a large group of illegal-rights supporters followed them to the BART station (San Francisco’s subway) and punched and kicked them. Three Minutemen supporters were injured. At least two of the attackers were arrested and will “likely be charged with felony assault and robbery.”

Once again, a left wing demonstration with demonstrable violence is described by an MSM outlet as “mostly peaceful”. Yet the  peaceful, but passionate Washington DC tea party from March 20, 2010 will forever live on in many minds as “ugly” because of the unfair and dishonest news coverage.

  2. If we keep catering to weakness and mollycoddling the lazy, dishonest and irresponsible instead of deporting/locking them up, there WILL be another civil war, and it’ll probably be fly-over-country against the coasts…South is already too heavily invaded by Papist wetbacks.

  4. “Papist wetbacks”?

    Wow. As one of them Pro-test-ants, I can say that I don’t have a problem with Catholicism, as they are brothers and sisters in Christ, nor do I have a problem with Mexicans, as long as they are here legally.

    You, on the other hand, seem to have no problem showing your ass to your Catholic hostess, and playing into the Lame Stream Media’s Characterization of a typical racist conservative.

    How about you shut your damn mouth and quit giving the rest of us a black eye? (That was a rhetorical question, by the way.)

  5. Moby cleanup on aisle one.

    It’s funny, you go to a tea party event (or previously pro-war events) and the cops are just hanging out, BSing with each other and accepting coffee and water from the protestors. They often stand there with their backs to the protest just shooting the breeze.

    You go to a protest by our fine, tolerant, pacifist leftist brethren and the cops have to be in riot gear with back-up around the corner.

    And after a tea party protest the park is cleaner than when they showed up.
    After a protest by our fine, ecologically concerned, leftist friends it looks as if a bottled water truck hit a commie-flyer truck and spewed the contents all over the park.

    So our fine, tolerant, anti-war, pro-environment friends are all violent and polluting while the evil reich-wingers aren’t.

    Just another aspect of The Funniest End of Civilization Ever.

  7. Well, I’m an evil reichwinger, so that goes without saying BIW.
    You see, when lefties demand that someone be killed they’re just noting, quite reasonably, that the views that person espouses are doubleplusungood.

    When an evil wingnut says they’re against your policies, well, that’s as clear a death threat as you’re going to see.

  8. How dare they come to our country and protest. We cannot do that in Mexico. How dare them come here with their Mexican flags. They don’t have any respect for our country. They think this is their country and they’ve come here to take it over!!!! I say, “if you don’t love the United States, then get the Hell out”!!!! They want a war, and our government seems to want a war, then they’ll get a war!!! The United States citizens can’t take anymore. Our government has given enough of our hard-earned money away, and now they want to give away our country. OVER MY DEAD BODY – I’LL FIGHT FOR THIS COUNTRY.
