Now remember, according to the MSM, it’s the “teabaggers” who are a violent threat to the community.
Santa Cruz, CA
Downtown business owners spent Sunday repairing shattered windows and doors after a May Day rally Saturday night turned into a riot with approximately 250 people marching along Pacific Avenue, some carrying makeshift torches, throwing large rocks and paint bombs, and spray-painting walls with graffiti.
At least 18 businesses suffered damage during the rally in honor of international workers that began at 9 p.m. and escalated into mayhem around 10:30 p.m., police said. Investigators estimated damage at $100,000, though some business owners said it could be more. No injuries were reported.
On Sunday, sea green-colored glass littered sidewalks where windows and glass doors had been smashed. Maintenance workers, many getting called in the middle of the night, boarded up windows with plywood until new sheets of glass could be installed.
The vandalized businesses included Urban Outfitters, Peet’s Coffee, Noah’s Bagels, Jamba Juice, Velvet Underground and Dell Williams Jewelers. The unoccupied Rittenhouse building also was damaged. A police car was vandalized with rocks and paint, department spokesman Zach Friend said.
And to think one of those small business owners is still gullible enough to utter this nonsense:
“It’s disgusting,” Caitlin Zocolli said. “They’re just making themselves look terrible. It just makes them look like animals. For all they know, we’re all on their side.”
And just which “side” would that be, Caitlin? If you’re an advocate of capitalist entrepreneurship, you ain’t on the “same side”.
