Gather up your communist friends and let's show that we're pissed off, because THAT will gain traction for any supposed "movement".

Hey! Let's all look really legitimate and wear all black.

Seattle is now looking for the Canadian that was attacked.

Seattle searches for Sam - News1130

Quote:
SEATTLE (NEWS1130) - On Tuesday, we first brought you the story of Sam, a man from Vancouver whose family was terrorized during Seattle's May Day riots.

The city's tourism operators now want to show how sorry it is by offering an all-expenses paid trip; they just have to find him first!

Sam's tires were slashed and his windows were smashed when he and his family found themselves caught in Tuesday's rioting. Protesters also gave him a hard time about being from north of the 49th.

"I don't know why like they got to mouth off at me and tell me to 'Go back to Canada, hoser!'" he explains. "This is a real welcome to Seattle."

The city's Convention and Visitors Bureau didn't think so either. That's why it's offering to pay for a future visit as an apology.

"The only kicker is nobody knows who this guy is. He didn't give us his last name. [All] we know is that he lives in British Columbia. We believe he lives in Vancouver, but that's it," explains KOMO news reporter Ryan Harris.

There's even a Twitter campaign. Look up #FINDSAM to join the conversatio

They should first offer to fix his car and then an all-expenses paid trip.

ICBC nor Sam should not be on the hook for shit like that.
