The Ides of May

“Obama will officially launch his 2012 re-election campain, and no I’m not kidding, on Karl Marx’s birthday, May 5th! First, we learn that Earth Day was started on the birthday of Vladimir Lenin, the Communist butcher and founder of the USSR, now we learn that Barack Obama, America’s first Marxist president, is launching his campaign on the father of communism’s birthday? Come on, now. This is just too appropriate! How fitting!

“Coincidence? Stupid oversight? Or, an intentional middle-finger in the face of the American people?”

I put a link Gateway Pundit in tomorrow’s C&L roundup for the same story – these motherfuckers are insance.

@ManchuCandidate: Since it celebrates the victory of a group of communists Kenyans dirty hippies insurgents, then it makes perfect sense.

I suspect it’s a coincidence, but given the behavior of the sort of fucktards who enjoy Freedom Post I wish it was a deliberate finger. What’s remarkable is that the teahadis still think they deserve respect from the President after calling him virtually every name in the book his entire term.

Could have been worse. Could have been May 6.

@nojo: If Newt’s bowing out of the race on Sunday, then that image is totally appropriate.

Lenin was a butcher? I seem to remember him constantly in danger from the long knives of his homeland in his later years. I don’t think he was anywhere near as violent some of the others in that movement.
Or am I confusing him with someone else?

@Tommmcatt Wears A Hoodie Daily: I’m pretty sure these morons confused him with Stalin.

It’s fiesta time in big d
Dallas celebrates Cinco de Mota today.
