'This Is Insane': California Bill Would Replace Lincoln or Washington's Birthday With 'May Day'


A California assemblyman vehemently argued against a bill that would adopt International Workers’ Day as a paid holiday.

The bill, introduced by Assemblyman Miguel Santiago (D), would designate the third Monday in February "as a single school holiday to be known as 'Presidents’ Day.'"

"Are we in competition to become the laughingstock of the United States?" Assemblyman Matthew Harper (R) asked. "This is ridiculous. This is insane."

The bill would subsequently get rid of either George Washington or Abraham Lincoln's birthday as a holiday and designate May 1 as “International Workers’ Day."

International Socialist Workers' Day, or "May Day" had been observed in countries under Communist rule and was an official holiday of the Soviet Union.

"Seriously, the substitution of adding International Socialist Workers' Day? May Day? The day of parades in the Soviet Union?" Harper said.

"I'm aghast that a bill like this would be able to get through committee.”

Lincoln, obviously. That negro hater needs to have his statues removed, immediately.

"Mr. Lincoln took the stand at a quarter before three, and was greeted with vociferous and protracted applause; after which, he said:

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN: It will be very difficult for an audience so large as this to hear distinctly what a speaker says, and consequently it is important that as profound silence be preserved as possible.

While I was at the hotel to—day, an elderly gentleman called upon me to know whether I was really in favor of producing a perfect equality between the negroes and white people. [Great Laughter.] While I had not proposed to myself on this occasion to say much on that subject, yet as the question was asked me I thought I would occupy perhaps five minutes in saying something in regard to it. I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races, [applause]—that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied every thing. I do not understand that because I do not want a negro woman for a slave I must necessarily want her for a wife. [Cheers and laughter.]"

Fair enough. Lincoln was a nationalist who believed in Manifest Destiny. He would have been perfectly happy with allowing slavery to survive in the South provided they remained in the Union. It was only when secession was made inevitable and it became politically convenient for him to become a staunch "negroes are ppl 2" libtard that he did so.

Is that better?

Odd that no one minds celebrating a communist holiday.

May Day.

Only six states actually celebrate Lincoln's birthday as a holiday and California isn't one of them. That doesn't mean anything here though. The bill deals with school holidays and provides for days schools can be closed to observe those days. They also have a Cesar Chavez Day and a Native American Day. The schools get two holidays and can choose if it will be Washington's Birthday and Lincoln's Birthday or if it will be President's Day and International Workers Day. So one school could get two Mondays off in February and another could get one day in February and one in May.

Interesting enough that Rugian brought this very same quote again and ironically it appears he does this every time Lincoln his mentioned. Considering the relativisms the cultural attitudes of the time.

Anyways, this sad addressed sometime back in January of this year.

I heard that Lincoln considered sending all the Blacks back to Africa but it would have been too expensive.

A lot of them returned on their own and settled in what is now known as Liberia.

Ironically enough you still didn't learn. Perhaps you need to research about the formation of American Colonization Society.

But according to your track record, we all know how you are regarding researching of any topic to have a degree of any understanding, dummy.

I doubt either one of them was unless it is a practice to circumcise Free Masons. President Washington was one.

The stupidity in this thread I astounding. As well as those not understanding "may day" and its origins as it has multiple connotations. But, sure, let people get all in a tizzy because of terms socialism and communism being thrown around.

If you can use stupid to describe me then I can safely use ignorant to describe you.




"The stupidity in this thread I astounding."

I don't know how to interpret that.

Easily, it's called a typo and automate is part of issues that may occur when typing a fly by response.

Allow me to assist you since your brain is incapable of using deduction.

I = is.

And btw stupid and ignorant are both descriptive best suited for you.

Ignorant because you lack knowledge. Stupid because you remained ignorant due to lack of researching any subject matter and when corrected, remain incorrigible.

Why did you capitalize 'is' and then drop the 's'?

Just curious.
