Mainstream media is NOT the place to find news.

Reason.com: On the off chance you’re not participating in an immigrant solidarity boycott, why not celebrate Loyalty Day? The utterly bullshit holiday, created in 1959 to take some of the sheen off those commie May Day parades, is a good time to “make a commitment to be good citizens, fly the American flag, or take the time to learn about our Nation’s history,” apparently.

Leave it to Scott Olsen, victim of Oakland Police violence and Iraq Vet, to bring the Love.
