These clips are not just of the Great Depression, but time frames surrounding that period. Do you have any doubts that the Communists and Progressives have been with us for 100 years or better? Well, they have been under many guises. Many times it is in the form of unions and organizers who claim they want to help the worker, when in reality, the ultimate goal is bringing ‘change’ to our form of government. When you were growing up, did you ever hear of these riots and this violence that eventually led up to WWII and afterwards? I didn’t. This is a first for me.
From a comment on the thread:
Those workers who were rioting were damn serious!
60,000 showed up for some of the riots at that time!
Governors of multiple states had to call out their National Guard.
The Guard showed up with their side arms, machine guns, and gattling guns, ready to use them as needed.
The workers made alot of use of homemade bombs and molotov cocktails.
The police used shot guns and alot of tear gas and “naseous” gas (that made you feel sick to your stomach).
Someone was reported dead and several were wounded at every riot that was covered in that footage.
Policemen were killed or injured.
Rioters overturned cars, attacked cab drivers and their passengers, and smashed all of the windows out of businesses.
There were alot of clubs, bats, and billy clubs used left and righ by law enforcement personnel and rioters alike.
I guess this is what we have to look forward to – a whole lot of death, injury, and destruction of personal property.
Two quotes are worth repeating from that video clip:
“American will never allow a dictator in this country.”
“Americans must remember that rioting is only a short step away from Civil War.”
Another very interesting comment on the thread:
Actually much of that film footage was from the late 1940s and even early 1950s rather than the classic Great Depression.
One of my uncles was a professional “strike breaker” during that time and throughout the 50s and 60s — what the commies called a “scab”.
He was something of a mechanical genius, and with only the most basic briefing on any sort of machine (examples — sheet metal press, printing press, textile loom, wire and cable production machinery) he could both man and maintain an industrial operation almost singlehandedly.
Whatever needed done — he found a way or made a way to make it happen!
My uncle and men like him kept whole industries in operation during the likes of these riots and maintained America as an industrial power.
Many, many of his bones were broken as he crossed picket lines — he called it the cost of doing business.
A small-framed wiry man, and a WWII veteran, my uncle had grown up working the migrant wheat harvest and knew the intrinsic value and dignity of both hard work and ingenuity.
It would not be proper to call him a fearless man. He knew fear very, very well.
But he never let union goons and the violence they did him prevent him from going in to do whatever it took to feed his family.
His body was found in a California desert.
In September of 1997, Sweeney who led the AFL-CIO, made it possible for Communists to once again lead the unions here in the US. See Aaron Klein’s excellent book, Red Army, on page 15.
History is repeating itself and the Progressives/Communists will use violence, hatred, fear, hunger and class warfare to achieve their agenda using whatever means are necessary. This path ALWAYS leads to death, bloodshed and war.

If you’re suffering from depression, you should ensure you’re trying to control your stress.
Depression can affect one’s ability to perform the usual
tasks and activities of daily life. “Oh and you see I only really make these vlogs so I can get more attention.
whoah this weblog is excellent i love reading your posts. Stay up the great work! You recognize, many individuals are hunting round for this info, you can aid them greatly.
What is left to do when the government is no longer listening to what the peoples needs are? Those in charge are more worried about their own agendas and have forgotten their only agenda should be to serve those who have put them into office.
The First Amendment states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
The key here is that WE as THE PEOPLE have a constitutional right to PEACEABLY ASSEMBLE. It is more than our right, it is our duty as AMERICANS, and the constitution tells us so!
It makes me sick and sad to see that this peaceful movement is being twisted and distorted by the media and the public. The people at these rallies are not the dregs on humanity that they are being portrayed as. They are hardworking, educated individuals who are tired of sitting back and waiting for a government who clearly has no care for them to fix their problems.
Today’s “riots” are NOT being caused by those expressing disapproval of the direction our government is taking the nation by exercising their constitutional rights; but by those who have sworn to protect them.
Who is causing these peaceful assemblies to become riots? The officers who have taken oaths to protect and serve. It seems to me that they have forgotten exactly whom they are supposed to be protecting and serving. Unarmed people are being shot with rubber bullets, tear gassed, and arrested for exercising their duty as American Citizens. These law enforcement officers should be protecting the demonstrators and making sure they are safe,NOT shooting at them. After all, these are the people who pay their paychecks.
Some have said this is a evolutionary step to civil war. If that is the case think I am okay with that. The last one we had freed the slaves and gave black men and women an opportunity to be recognized as HUMAN BEINGS. Maybe a revolution wouldn’t be such a bad thing. The corruption that runs rampant through our government is the problem, NOT those using their voices to express anger and concern for the state of the nation’s economy in a peaceful way. Apathy will only lead to further corruption and a continued loss of our constitutional rights!
Carin, the police did not cause these occupiers to do what they are doing. The police are trying to protect those obeying the law, as they should. they are under great duress and have been very restrained in dealing with this well-orchestrated and well funded, democrat backed “grass roots” mob action.
I’m 69, so I didn’t see any of this stuff in person. However, I DID see the 60’s riots up close! If you haven’t figured it out yet, folks – this is real!
“This path ALWAYS leads to death, bloodshed and war”.
I cannot agree more which leads me to remember a quote from an unknown author: “at the end of every leftist rainbow lies a mass grave”
There are no exceptions to this in the history of the world.
It is time to stand up and protect what we value.
