How Labor Day came to be [Grover Cleveland]


ace is still out and about this holiday weekend, and he asked Yog Sothoth to rouse me for a first hand explanation of how the holiday we call Labor Day came to be.

The commie labor unions had organized a couple of parades in 1882 and 1884 in New York and Toronto. Dancing, and prancing and their typical suction-cup-enlarged genitalia commie bullshit.

Why we gave a shit about Toronto I'll never understand.

Anyway, to placate the bastards I decided to make it an annual event, and later a holiday. Where we all take a day off.

To celebrate work.

And you bastards thought FDR started this crap, didn't you? Didn't you?

window lickers.

Oh and the Knights of Labor got their ASSES handed to them by those American Federation of Labor window lickers.
