I seriously doubt you are Spanish. Sounds like a made up profile and story to me. Take your hick tales elsewhere.


Well spotted, i thought there was something wrong as well,

Im sure the demos are against the Government for changing the Spanish constitution without the people having any say despite media reporting it because of cuts, last year it was because of cuts but it is now all about the constitution.

These people lived under Franco not to long ago and know what they have to lose.

I noted that in his original post he stated "Then they said something which made my NY blood boil."

What is "NY blood"? Is that "New York blood"?

I wonder... is it possible that the OP was transplanted from New York to Spain? Maybe, he moved there from America. I know that I have personally lived in a few different countries and posted as such, though I am an American.

Just something to think about.

Certainly was a good story. Not sure how much of it is true though, seeing everyone on the internet likes to pretend that they are badass.

What concerns me is the replies. If the story is true, the OP did a pretty good thing. He stood up to idiots trying to undermine a small and independent business. But your ideas that you should pull out a gun and start shooting, or the comments that it was a good thing the US went to kill communists all over the world - and millions of civilians, destroying whole countries (even though they weren't usually communist), in Vietnam, Guatemala, Honduras, Cambodia etc - really reveals the absolute idiocy and perverted nature of American society.

You take a positive story, and turn it around suggesting that people should have been shot and that America committing genocide all over the third world to secure strategic interests, the interests of wealthy corporations and raw materials, is a good thing. You are idiots. Congratulations

I kept thinking to myself, there is no way they delivered meat in Harlem at night as a little white teenager….




You are Spannish as much as a Greenlander who never went to Spain is. Definitely a hick

I'm gonna say again. the OP has no idea what communism is or what it stands for by making such a comment.

What worries me is the number of stars and flags he has recieved for this piece of propaganda. I bet people who star and flagged this thread didnt even read past the opening sentence

"So I just stood my ground against a mob of communist morons trying to forcibly close my business down today."

mob communist is a popular term on ATS

sounds like quite the mess.

Unions really have no use in todays society.
there was a time when they were useful, but
as the op has shown, they have gone down hill
and are nothing more than a organized mob.

How could anyone be proud to be a part of anything
thats main goal is to go around and deface property
by stickers and such.

Im sure their goals are much much deeper, but just on
the surface, it is something i would relate to as a group
of teenagers acting stupid..

There are many more mature way's to get one's message
out. If they have to resort to bullying and defacing others
property, obviously they have nothing to offer.
If they had anything worth the effort, people would willingly
join and be part of it.

Hope you survive well in this OP, i am sure you will run into them
again. What they are doing and how they are acting is nothing short
of a criminal, and if they actually had anything to benefit your business
or its workers, they would not have to result to this kind of childish behavior.

Good for you! I don't care if I agree with the issue or not, it's the thuggery and manipulation I can't deal with. What a mess...

Really?

Geez. So, the answer to everything is to get a gun?


You don't have to get one if you don't want In fact, I recommend you don't.

I think its about time the people stood up to protest and riot against the corrupt elite that are ruining their country just as they are ruining the US and other western nations. We should follow their lead




Even though protesters form a heterogeneous and ambiguous group, they share a strong rejection of unemployment, welfare cuts, Spanish politicians, the current two-party system in Spain between the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party and the People's Party, as well as the current political system, capitalism, banks and bankers,[13] political corruption and firmly support what they call basic rights: home, work, culture, health and education.


Against the bankers and political corruption? Lost hope in the two party system? Sounds like what any ATS member would want, but you OP seems to be all for the bankers and corruption, because you're a right wing capitalist. It's no surprise you view things this way, being a business owner and all, you have something in common with the ruling elite, so you tend to support them.

You should turn the mainstream news off for a while and get to know why these people are forced to take desperate measures. Your views of "business owners and ruling elite are good, workers are bad, ra ra ra" mentality sounds like it came straight off of the Spanish equivalent to fox news.

This was a very bias report on the protest, you only got away with it because none of us are over there.

Just stop! You know very well guns aren't the answer to everything, so just quit being that way. And you know what way you're being.

I'll bet you will be waiting tables again in the near future there tough guy.

Chose your battles wisely!



And what the heck did you mean by that? This man has every right to defend his business. In fact he is choosing his battle wisely. Do you think he should just fold, and let them shut him down? And why do you bet he'll be waiting tables again in the near future? Don't think he can stand up, and defend his own business, and come out on top?

Ahh but you see he combined the words "communist" and "moron" in the title, thus winning him an instant flag from every right wing ATSer.

My guess is half the people here just agree with the title and don't bother reading the whole thread, there has been a few set-ups in the past to catch how many people do this, and a ton of people fell for it.

No, he is not Spanish by birth. He was an American that moved to Spain. I am unsure if he changed nationalities. I know this because I remember the OP telling his story about life as a waiter, saving for a restaurant, and everyday things like that on a thread a few months back.

Are you a xenophobe or something? God forbid if foreigners come to Spain. God knows Spanish people have went to other parts of the world.....to put it mildly......seek their fortune. Why don't you give the man a break.




Congratulations on your success OP. Both in creating a business and holding of the mob of people. I wish you the best of luck in future encounters with them. I have a feeling you'll need it.

yeah cuz who wants good pay, vacation time and all that rot.

Yep I want to just work my finger to the bone just to get home dead only to rest up and go back and do it all over again.


GOD forbid people want more and take it away from rich corps and government. We need to keeep the status quo going.

Is there corruption in unions?? hell yes. Is there corruption in government and business?? hell yes. So you condemn one group and what??? support the other???

For a Union to work... you have to stand together. YOu stand together with those who enslave you. so good job staying open buddy. Just wait till the ones you side with screw you more.

So, there is no Massively burdensome debt that the people are paying thru the nose for and the "austerity" measures we are hearing about are really just a bunch of lazy, "Commie Union Workers" that roam the streets under police supervision attacking places everyone eats?

While there are some very questionable unions out there with ties to the underworld, unethical approach to the way they handle things and can be violent and thuggish.

There are a few unions that do actiually care about the people who work in their industries (though far and few between).

Remember too, for the most part, if it were not for a union of one sort or another, you would still be working 15hr shifts, seven days a week, with no meal/rest breaks and for 1/4 of what you earn now.

Unions do have their place and without them, the world would quickly slip back into the victorian age in terms of employer/employee relations.
