“Just how significant is the impact of leftists within the illegal immigration movement? It is no accident that they chose May 1 as their day of demonstration and boycott. It is the worldwide day of commemorative demonstrations by various socialist, communist, and even anarchic organizations.”– Lou Dobbs, Radical groups taking control of immigrant movement
“On May 1, the world working class displays its strength in demonstrations and strikes,” explains communist writer Andy McInerney in the Spring 1996 issue of Liberation & Marxism. “May Day — International Workers’ Day — is a reminder to the ruling classes that their days are numbered…. From 1919 onward, the success of May Day in the United States would depend on the success of the communist movement.”– William F. Jasper, Why May Day?
Secret societies do nothing without multiple layers of esoteric meaning; symbolism is of vital importance. It was in this tradition that Adam Weishaupt founded the Illuminati on May 1st, 1776. When we look at the doctrine of the Illuminati, it becomes clear that the choice of May Day for its birth was no coincidence.
Weishaupt was well aware of the pagan celebrations that had been practiced for thousands of years on the first of May—which were maintained in some form up to Weishaupt’s time, and still continue to this day. Beltane, as it is known in the British Isles, marks “the midpoint in the Sun’s progress between the vernal equinox and summer solstice.” The etymology of the word means “bright fire”, “bale-fire” or “Baal’s fire”. The festivals on May 1st literally stem from a form of sun and fire worship.
