Benton Harbor, Rick Snyder — May 3, 2011 at 6:59 am

Protest Rick Snyder at the Blossomtime Grand Floral parade this Saturday


This Saturday, May 7, 2011, is the Blossomtime Grand Floral Parade. As I previously reported, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder will be the “Grand Marshal” of the parade. I have also learned that Representative Al Pscholka, the father of Michigan’s odious Emergency Financial Manager Law, will also be in the parade. The appearance of both of these men in the parade is an audacious display of arrogance and chutzpah. It smacks of a conqueror reviewing the lands recently vanquished.

Here is the parade route which winds through both St. Joseph and Benton Harbor:

A protest is being organized by Heartland Revolution, the same group that organized last week’s rally/march in Benton Harbor. Their Blossomtime Parade Protest Facebook page is HERE.

Meet at the Benton Harbor City Hall at 11:30 10:00 a.m.

Interestingly, the parade will be televised by WSBT-TV, the CBS affiliate located in South Bend Indiana. I am certain many other media groups will be there, as well.

I’m just sayin’…

    What is this? Springtime for Hitler? This is the most disgusting racist and supremacist display of power – much like the Orange Order parades in Ireland. I sincerely hope the good citizens of Michigan will support the people in Benton Harbor and not allow this to go on without notice!

    winterinthehinterland has it just right. Perfect. The Benton Harbor Springtime for Hitler parade. Grab your smelly garbage and join the fun. Snyder wants a food fight over Benton Harbor’s assets, then citizens should indulge him.
