Each year, on Memorial Day weekend, there is held, in Orange County, California, one of the largest Scottish Heritage Celebrations in the country. With a massive Pipe Band competition, Highland games and dance competitions, an extensive network of clan booths, and tens of thousands in attendance, it was only natural that local A3P activists took advantage of “Scotsfest 2010” and mixed a bit of political activism with cultural celebration.
While it may make many a leftist blush to hear it, the Scots have not been cowed by political correctness and are proud of their history, culture, and way of life. In fact, while at the festival, kilt-wearing Scots eagerly check into to the booth of their respective clan, or extended family, which bear names like Armstrong, [Kevin] MacDonald, MacLellan, and Stewart. These booths serve to reconnect kin and to disseminate information pertaining to the history and origin of the clan. While the idea may not appear popular in mainstream television, cinema, or news media, the meaningfulness of a shared history, culture, and an ethnic identity is not lost on the real world, and despite the establishment’s unrelenting projection of negative, stereotypical images of people who do as much, a discussion of the roots and histories of peoples were the day’s priority for most. Of course, one wouldn’t expect any less of a rebellion from the mighty Scottish people.
A3P activists in Southern California, always ready to promote the party, passed out hundreds of fliers to the accompaniment of pipes and drums. Burst of leafletting were intermitted by the consumption of meat pies and Scottish ales, the enjoyment of Scotland the brave, and a few cheers for those pitted against one another in the caber toss.
With ethnic identity at the forefront everyone’s mind, a flier concerning the detrimental effects of unfettered, out-of-control Third World immigration was fitting, and the activists didn’t disappoint. These A3P anti-immigration fliers were exceptionally well-received, and, in fact, out of the hundreds delivered, only one gentleman refused, on the grounds that his hands were full.
Of course, seasoned as they are, the So Cal activists had attended the event in prior years and knew full-well that the event is one of the best there is for leafletting. While reporting the event to the news department, they were adamant that it was communicated to other activists the value of using such venues to promote the Nationalist cause. With that, the young activists promised to attend again next year.
