The May Day angry mob you won’t see

Reconquista revolution without borders! (Photo credit: El Marco, Denver)
They came, they saw, they threatened or committed violence in the name of open borders and workers’ rights. But alas, Frank Rich and Paul Krugman’s columns decrying the insane rage and hate of the May Day angry mob got lost in the mail.
In Santa Cruz, they carried torches and vandalized at least 18 businesses:
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.
There are more at this link.

It was the anarchist group who vandalized the businesses, the FBI is investigating.

Riots break out in downtown Santa Cruz; windows broken on dozens of businesses, porch of cafe set on fire

Yes, pictures speak louder than words. They also mislead others.

OP picture...it is clearly fake. The top frame shows borders and shaded light, the bottom has no 3D, its plain flat and letters on both signs do not match.

Fake or not, this is the belief of the illegal immigrant. No hate here...just want to clean up the mess and put our house back in order. I travel to Mexico frequently and am endeared to those who live there and take pride in themselves. The men are friendly and genuine. The women are beautiful and hold traditional values appropriate to their gender.
It's the ones that sneak under our borders that are trashing the reputation of Mexico.

If you zoom in on the image in photoshop, it looks.. off. There seems to be a border around the letters that's a few shades lighter than the rest of the sign. And is it me or are those two signs in one?

I absolutely agree with this sentiment from speaking with older generation legal residents of this country. It is expressed the illegal youth of today are an embarrassment to their culture and they refrain from having much contact with them.

A few more from California's march. There can be no question as to their validity.

Please....make some excuses for these political statements by illegal aliens and their supporters as well. They're only here to work. There is no such thing as reconquista mentality, right?

I keep hearing this, but haven't seen any ruling from an expert, or more importantly, if it is fake then where's the "real" picture?????

Not to mention that the ink is a different color, and the writing is a different style. Another myth debunked.

reminds me of another picture "ProLogic" shared a few years ago to start a thread before that handle was banned, and another poster's send-up of it:

http://www.city-data.com/forum/1898087-post7.html

The original poster the guy was holding was stating that "Europeans" in the US were illegal since 1492 hence the $14.92 - the original photo doesn't appear in the OP anymore (at least it doesn't display on my computer anymore).
