LOL, rump proclaims May 1 as 'Loyalty Day'

President Donald Trump on Friday proclaimed May 1 as 'Loyalty Day' as a way to "recognize and reaffirm our allegiance to the principles" upon which America was built and express pride in those ideals, according to a release of the proclamation from the White House.

Fuckin' Idiot


History

The holiday was first observed in 1921, during the First Red Scare.[2] It was originally called "Americanization Day,"[3] and it was intended to replace the May 1 ("May Day" celebration of the International Workers' Day,[citation needed] which commemorates the 1886 Haymarket Massacre in Chicago.[4]

During the Second Red Scare, it was recognized by the U.S. Congress on April 27, 1955,[5] and made an official reoccurring holiday on July 18, 1958 (Public Law 85-529).[1][6] President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaimed May 1, 1955, the first observance of Loyalty Day.[7] In 1958, Eisenhower urged Congress to move Child Health Day to the First Monday in October, to avoid conflicting with Loyalty Day[6][8] Loyalty Day has been recognized with an official proclamation every year by every president since its inception as a legal holiday in 1958.[9][10]

11. Exactly. Obama did it too.......

I'm just glad to see the original May Day as a socialist and workers' holiday gaining some new traction this year.

8. May Day ! May Day!

This country is in distress - we're being torpedoed by an orange fool.

Funny aside... fuck no you cannot have our May Day, Trump.
May 1st is for honoring workers - take your idiotic 'loyalty oath' and stick it.
