California Bill Considers Replacing Lincoln or Washington’s Birthday With ‘May Day’

A California assemblyman vehemently argued against a bill that would adopt a Communist International Workers’ Day as a paid holiday.

A California assemblyman vehemently argued against a bill that would adopt a Communist International Workers’ Day as a paid holiday.

The bill, introduced by Assemblyman Miguel Santiago (D), would designate the third Monday in February “as a single school holiday to be known as ‘Presidents’ Day.'”

“Are we in competition to become the laughingstock of the United States?” Assemblyman Matthew Harper (R) asked. “This is ridiculous. This is insane.”

The bill would subsequently get rid of either George Washington or Abraham Lincoln’s birthday as a holiday and designate May 1 as “International Workers’ Day.”

International Socialist Workers’ Day, or “May Day” had been observed in countries under Communist rule and was an official holiday of the Soviet Union.

“Seriously, the substitution of adding International Socialist Workers’ Day? May Day? The day of parades in the Soviet Union?” Harper said.

“I’m aghast that a bill like this would be able to get through committee.”
