SO HERE AND NOW

Conservative Political Views

BREITBART by REBEL PUNDIT (MY TWO SENSE: CALL to Dick Durbin, are you a Communist or a Socialist? We ask because you clearly support Communism and Socialism. Members of both parties stood in front of you on May Day, and you publically expressed your support. How can you be a legitimate representative of the American, free people? Don’t tell us it’s because you believe in the First Amendment, and our Constitution. It goes deeper than that because standing up for any of the Bill of Rights does not, and never has required one to participate with, mix socially, or support publically the Communist Party USA, anarchists, and/or international socialist groups in the way you did May Day. Uh . . er, I mean Law Day. The ways of life these groups represent is neither free nor worthy of a speech from a US Senator unless that Senator is like-minded, which makes you dangerous to freedom. Durbin, you are a disgrace as an American but a local hero in Illinois which reflects, even more negatively, on your character. JM)

Dick Durbin at May Day Immigration Rally: Communists? What Communists?

 


 

 

On Wednesday, Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) joined nearly two thousand trade unionists, open communists, socialists, anarchists and illegal aliens at Chicago’s May Day march and rally.

 

Two large rally demonstrations that began at Union Park and Chicago’s Haymarket Riot monument converged into a giant march that shut down traffic for miles, and ended at Federal Plaza where they were joined by Senator Durbin.

 

Durbin made remarks to the red, yellow and black flag waving crowd about “immigration reform.” Opening with “My fellow immigrants,” Durbin told the crowd “this is a once in a lifetime chance” to get “immigration reform.”

 

Following his speech, I spoke to the senator about his participation:

Durbin laughed at the suggestion that May Day is seen largely around the world as an international communist holiday, and said, “You are trapped in ancient history, my friend. May Day is also Law Day in America.”

 

(May Day is apparently also Law Day in America, but after covering the last three May Day marches in Chicago, I have never heard about Law Day, at any of the marches or elsewhere.)

 

Durbin then mounted a rather bizarre defense of his participation in the rally–on free speech grounds:

 

Rebelpundit: There is a large contingent of Communist Party USA, anarchists, international socialist groups here today that you just spoke to…

Durbin: How do you know that?

Rebelpundit: Because I’ve filmed them all day, and you just spoke to them, so I’d like to ask about your participation, why you decided to come out today?

Durbin: Well let me just say something, because [pause] I believe in the Constitution. Do you believe in it?  legitimate

Rebelpundit: Because you believe in the Constitution you decided to come out to a rally full of communists and socialists?

Durbin: And you know why?

Rebelpundit: Why?

Durbin: Because we have freedom of speech in America, and that’s why you can record this and not be arrested.

RebelPundit: You think I should be arrested?

Durbin: No, not at all, you have a right to your constitutional rights, and I do, too.

 

Of course, Durbin could go to a Nazi or KKK rally, too–but does that mean, as a United States Senator, he should?
