#March For Bernie NYC Union (aka) RED Square [1-30-16] pics & vids

Saturday, January 30, 2016
 3 PM – 6 PM

Will Lockhart's photo.Solidarity Forever.
The “
Millennials for Bernie Sanders” Community
They eagerly answer the siren call of  Socialism.
“Power to the People”
(“Power to the FEW-in-Charge”)
The Promise of Socialism excites the many.
The 20-somethings —- eager for CHANGE— Hoping For a Revolution. So–Bernie-Mania — perhaps this is this a good thing.
Votes deflected from the Hilda-beast (a definite plus) *After years of Obama-mania * can America HOPE to avoid another Socialist in the White House?
I found one lone dissenter to the Bernie-nuts

“Don’t Worry. Be Happy!”
Will we get Bernie? (or *sigh* Hillary)


— The next-gen of the hopey-changey machine may decide —
Part 1 (Video) approx. 3 pm
As the “March for Bernie” gathered in Union Square.

Our “hostess with the mostest’ : Moumita Ahmed

Her bio : “Class-war activist, digital grassroots organizer, social arsonist, eco- warrior princess. She also says that.”.. as a Muslim I support Sen Sanders because he understands Islam is not the problem it’s income inequality”.


Moumita
warned the crowd that they were not there to BASH the other candidates. Because “this march is a LOVE Train” (said while standing next to a Bash Hillary Pinocchio Theatre – performance art- Show)

This is a people’s march so we don’t want to impose any rules but please remember this is a positive march.
We the organizers are requesting marchers to not engage in activities related to Hillary bashing. Let’s not give Hillary any ammo or any air time at our march. 12640459_10154928897678532_4702584635229988942_o

 

 

 

 

 

 

Part 2 (video) Moumita “This march is a LOVE Train!” Ahmed

AND MORE ON …. WHY WE ARE MARCHING….

“2016 America is a scary, uncertain place. Income and wealth inequality has hollowed out the middle class, leaving millions of Americans left out of the economic recovery.” “Young people are graduating college with massive levels of student debt and are unable to find adequate employment.”

Part 3. Video – Vote Bernie & get FREE COLLEGE!
“Carla” waxes on about FREE College. Ol’ Bern will make that happen. Free College. Free Money. (Thanks to Bernie she won’t have to go to Canada for her college degree anymore).

“Workers in many industries are earning starvation wages in one of the wealthiest nations on Earth. Women are having their abortion services eliminated in many areas of the country, as the attack on women’s health organizations such as Planned Parenthood continue to intensify. Black people are brutalized and murdered by police everyday, immigrants live in constant fear of their friends and family members being attacked or deported, Muslim-Americans are treated like second class citizens, and the poor are being pushed out of their communities due to rampant gentrification.”

Part 4  (video )Megan from Socialist Alternative and “15 Now” .  Megan works the crowd. Well rehearsed on how Great Bernie is and “ever shall be”.

“Our political system is completely corrupt, choking on high-paid lobbyists, SuperPACS, and dark money. We frequently elect politicians who fall to these pressures and fail to address our very serious issues. Meanwhile, prime-time debates have war and ISIS in the cross-hairs, leaving a deafening silence where urgent dialogue and action on domestic issues is needed.Sometimes, It might seem easy or convenient to give up but in our darkest hours, we must remember this quote from Bernie Sanders:

“All over this country we have a lot of bright, decent, good people. They’re saying, ‘You know what, this situation is hopeless. You can’t beat the Koch Brothers, you can’t beat the billionaires… you can’t win. I’m giving up.’ That is exactly what they want us to believe. And I beg of you, do not enter that world of despair. We can win this fight if we stand together.”
This is a political revolution against the billionaire class!”
Part 5 (video ) The MARCH begins!
Ernest. Smiling. Just what the Doctor (demento) has ordered as they chanted, listened to speakers and then danced down Bdwy — the Drum BEAT to Hell GOES ON …

Stop Deportations Now! ICE-Free NYC-The Speakers (1-8-16)

I.C.E. Free NYC – NOW! 
STOP DEPORTATIONS!
Say NO to SECURE Communities. Sanctuary Cities, Si!

45 minutes – 11 speakers  (2- 4 minutes each) A Sidewalk forum with no amplification.
Still, they forge ahead. Practiced. Skilled at disseminating agitprop to the home-team.

No one is in doubt amongst those lining the walls. Dedicated to an ICE Free NYC.Playing to the cameras from RT TV, Iran’s Press TV, NY 1, Telemundo, Democracy Now! and Japanese TV, NHK.They hang around. The media. They film (a little) Do interview (a few) But, the NY-ICE counter-protestor [in the background] was noticed by only a few…
The media reports are usually short and simple. So, what results from this all, too, familiar protest (with such modest coverage.) Perhaps the results, too, are simple: The reason for the treason: The illegals. Their Families. Their children. Won-over. Manipulated.

The Illegals, convinced only the Communist Left cares about them, work hard to repay The Party. A voting block they can count on.
So, no matter that this protest seemed small and quiet.
Taking only a few NYPD officers off-the-streets. Patrolling the sidewalk. Making sure the entrance to the ICE Federal building wasn’t blocked.
Even their “parade”,  a small, quiet procession, was so low-key that it only involved a couple of scooter cops. [a walk around the block]HOWEVER, there was more. Given a heads-up by a protestor about “A PLAN” Don’t leave.  It was about to happen. Soon.
So, I hung around. Waiting. Walking ’round-the-block.
And there it was. As we came back to the Federal Building. A Street Action. (THE PLAN)  SHUT DOWN THE STREETS!
The anarchist’s favorite toy : Chaos. Confusion. PLANNED.Controlled, but, still, Chaos. The best laid plans (of Mice and Men) Shut the whole Fuckin’ City DOWN!” (If they could)
See previous post for more on “The Plan” [Part 1] Below is the Video Playlist and Flickr slideshow of the Civil Disobedience:

Back to the speakers and their with 30-45 minutes of propaganda. Repeated. Over and over and over.

Video Playlist of the speakers (before they shut down the streets)

The average guy. (America) Needs to hear this anti-American blather. Exposed. Countered. But, the media promotes them. Quietly. Without contradiction.Transparency (for real) drives the LEFTISTS to distraction. (They do NOT like exposure.) Controlling every word. Every picture. (Immigration Prison? Family over (evil) Profits) ‘Trade secrets’ carefully disseminated. (To those chosen)

The ‘subtle’ approach demands more than the intellect. Emotions, Si!
The wrong press. The wrong message- unapproved. Not allowed. Requires ignoring those reporters. Bloggers. Blocking their cameras. This, too, is A PLAN.

So, I FILM. Expose (irritate and frustrate them). American should demand Transparency Unapproved!

Granted these are not Trade Secrets: Open Borders. Down with American Imperialism. The Evils of Greedy Capitalism. No Prisons. No “Crime and Punishment”.
Crime (maybe) but punishment? Not for their Comrades. And NOT if you are a person of color. Or, say, ILLEGAL. Say NO to Fascism!  [Yeah, that’s the ticket]
They preach the evils of White America. The White man’s 21st century world is Unfair! He enslaves men and women, black and brown.
The White Man must suffer. His greedy Empire-building must be stopped. White people GET OUT.  Go BACK where you came from. Reverse Racism,  Si! This palaver is but a secular, Marxist-controlled religion, peopled by faux- Christians.  “Do-Gooder” Lefties who Say NO to Secure Communities. Open the Borders! STOP Deportations!
They chip away at inconvenient laws. Nurture unrest. Manipulating. Corrupting (or ignoring) the RULE Of LAW.
The American Constitution-Bad. Communism-Good. Anarchy, Si! 
Even though the NYPD was caught off-guard by the SECRET Plan, they kept the peace.
Nothing new at Varick and Houston. Pro-Forma. Dealing with the well-rehearsed wild-side was a well-rehearsed NYPD.
The police were calm, focused, professional. They are a fine police force (in spite of De Blasio). Firmly dealing with the insurgents.  Bratty. Spoiled. Entitled. Anarchists with a plan. A game-plan. (For now)  For Real …. when we don’t expect it …
Can we hope to stop this insanity? Not while we have the Mark-Viveritos, De Blasios, Cuomos and Obamas (with Clintons and Sanders in the wings) All ELECTED to office and deconstructing America one day, one year, one decade  at a time.

They have a PLAN. 1. Create Chaos. 2. Restore order.  3. ‘Keep the Peace’. [Can we say “Banana Republic?”]

Eventually, once accomplished, there will be no recovery from their mission. Just passive acceptance. Sad. Sad. Sad.

Chaos as Thugs Block NYC Streets-Demand ICE-FREE ZONE (1-8-16)

          THIS IS HOW THE THIRD WORLD BEHAVES.

January 8, 2016. Noon to 2 pm (approximately). Varick and Houston Streets. NYC.

The three videos I’m posting first are of the civil disobedience (pictures and the speakers videos posted in Part 2)

  VIDEO- Police removing the Arm Tubes ( it wasn’t easy)

Traffic was blocked. Streets shut-down. A time consuming removal of the Chinese ARM cuffs. It took a good solid hour from the beginning of the lock down til the 7 were cut loose from the tubes so they could be arrested.

First they started with the wire cutters for the chicken wire. Once police saw the Tube layers, they came back with SAWS. During all of this, the streets were still blocked and the Illegals and their Commie Chums screamed, taunted and cursed at the police with the usual ad hominems.

The NYPD was GREAT. Calm. Professional.

This civil disobedience – blocking the NY streets, sitting on cars and threatening the drivers, happened AFTER a PRESS CONFERENCE AND RALLY BY ICE-FREE NYC in front of the Federal Building.

The action was TO DEMAND ICE-FREE ZONES and to STOP RAIDS & STOP DEPORTATIONS. They claim this protest is in response to the ongoing raids on non-citizens [AKA ILLEGALS] with criminal convictions (!) … and …. on Central American Refugees

It was a mess for over an hour and the press LOVED them. They are well-rehearsed as their obnoxious video of the actual shutdown reveals. [I didn’t witness the shut-down as it was happening- I arrived after they took the streets]

                    

VIDEO –  Is as I arrived. They distracted police with a walk around two city blocks, back to Varick St. where we find the “Chinese Arm Cuffed 7 ” blocking the streets to traffic. With signs that say “F*CK ICE” and “F*CK Your Borders”, they block traffic during lunch hour and generally demonstrate that they feel like an entitled mob.  They also sit on cars.

                     

VIDEO – The Police start to move traffic (a bit) while the illegals keep blocking the traffic and SCREAMING. At 2:42 the Police begin to examine how to remove the Chinese cuffs. Layers of duct tape and chicken wire over what looked like a metal tubing.  This was  clearly civil disobedience – blocking the NY streets, sitting on cars and threatening the drivers.

 One driver that they harassed says that he is trying to simply get to work, but they don’t care.  And, all this occurs during the honking of horns of other drivers trying to get to their destinations for whom these demonstrators have complete disregard.

After they were cut OUT of the Tubes the police were able to arrest them. Finally the streets were clear and all 7 were arrested.

Seven arrested at protest outside ICE offices in NYC in spite of their OUT RAGE.

In response to the ongoing raids on non-citizens [AKA ILLEGALS] with criminal convictions [hello!] and deportations of Central American Refugees, 7 individuals wearing arm locking devices sat down outside Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) offices blocking the intersection of Varick and West Houston in NYC. All were taken into custody. [of course they were!]

Another report claims that their fellow activists/thugs had to stand in the street to PROTECT the Plucky 7 from being run over! (they will say anything to get attention)

Their own face book video shows (as do my own videos): They STOPPED the TRAFFIC from moving! (and there were PLENTY of police standing all around them) It’s a really odd shaped player – a bit large – but near the end- it’s short- is where you get a good look at all the police in the streets … not  the thugs–and NO CARS.

THEY ALWAYS FAKE PAIN –  One guy showed ‘pain’ while the NYPD used the saws (of some sort) to cut the tubes open. He then collapsed after they stood him upright. The crowd went “insane” with a mini-riot because he was “in pain” (see first video up top)

Disgusting. Arrogant. Green hats (fake lawyers) were taking down police officers names. Practically glued to them.

And then : FREEDOM:  The NY Daily News Reports

Seven were charged with resisting arrest and obstructing governmental administration. Another protestor was charged with not having a permit for a sound device.

(One of the seven) Diego Ibanez, 28, a veteran of the Occupy Wall Street movement, tossed the paint on the city’s top cop in November 2014 while protesting a grand jury’s decision not to indict cop Darren Wilson for fatally shooting Michael Brown.

   The Lucky, Plucky Seven Are OUT of Jail (and PROUD)
248236_10153352108852666_6609387774587264343_n

ALSO, typical propaganda LIES about what went down came from Communist Reporter, Caleb Maupin of Iran’s Press TV. [Caleb thinks he’s on Fifth Avenue – not Varick – maybe he was reporting from Tehran- since I never saw him at the protest- BAD Caleb]

Press TV – Iran and Caleb’s LIES  – claiming this was a PEACEFUL Protest. No way was that a PEACEFUL Demonstration.

AND – The thugs are proudly promoting that The Commie Speaker of the NYC Council Stands with these Thugs! – OF COURSE –

 Joanna, President

“They created chaos during a NYC lunch hour, and they don’t care, as long as they got in their street theater.

Of notable absence is any politician or political candidate.

They care little if ambulances or emergency vehicles are trying to pass.  The positive gleaned from all of this is that more people will come to our side after seeing the siege they try to put us under.  As one of our more recent NY ICE Members put it, “This has to STOP”.
The opposition supports ILLEGALS. OPEN BORDERS and wants to “stop deportations” and “raids” . They want NYC to be an ICE-FREE Zone.”

“Commies United” vs Penn. GOP – “DUMP TRUMP”- Plaza Hotel (12-11-15) Part 3

Part 3  of a three part series
The Speakers Protest in front of the Plaza.

December 11, 2015. Noon. NY’s Plaza Hotel.
Communities UNITED! Confronting Trump…
Say NO to Trump’s Racism and Hate”
“Trump is a symptom of a white supremacist sickness that is rooted deeply in our political system. We are mobilizing this Friday to share a vision of communities beyond policing, beyond incarceration, and beyond detention.”

A “DUMP TRUMP” protest supported by these organizations:

Families for Freedom
Black Alliance for Just Immigration- BAJI
Queer Detainee Empowerment Project- QDEP
Responsible Endowments Coalition
Showing Up for Racial Justice- SURJ
Council on American-Islamic Relations- CAIR
BAYAN- USA
Jews For Racial and Economic Justice- JFREJ
Black and Pink
Jewish Voices for Peace
Arab American Association of NY

“A liberal activist group said that Pennsylvania Republicans should dump Donald Trump as the speaker at a party fundraiser after the mogul proposed a “total and complete” ban on Muslims entering the U.S.”


Game On: Trump was inside at the Pennsylvania GOP’s annual Commonwealth Club luncheon.

The party is standing by its man. Donald Trump will be the keynote speaker at our Friday fundraiser in New York,” Pennsylvania GOP spokeswoman Megan Sweeney said. [And he was]


As I arrived, I saw a large crowd hoping for a glimpse of “The Donald”.
NO PRESS was allowed inside the luncheon, so the press and passersby (LOTS of “just plain folk”) were jammed at the entrance.
Also, in Grand Army Plaza, was the “Dump Trump” protest.  A crowd comprised of Commies (young and old) …… Illegal Trespassing supporters [like Percy Lujan from Revolutionary Student Co-ordinating Committee) and lots of trend-setting white-folk.
Muslims (of course) —- many Muslimas actually—
A Christian Clergywoman, who held high her sign,  “Love Your Muslim Neighbor”.
As though LOVE  would have stopped Boston’s murderous Tsarnaev Brothers and their VILE, INSANE mother,4_292013_aptopix-russia-boston-sus-28201_c0-0-1152-671_s885x516 Yeah. LOVE. That’ll stop ’em.

The ubiquitous Rabbi Michael Feinberg (Rabbi for Human Rights & Exec. Dir. Greater N. Y. Labor-Religion Coalition.) present as always…

The Speakers: At Noon, the Commies (and friends) began a lively “Dump Trump” protest with many speakers crammed into just one hour.

They preached, lectured, chanted and SCREAMED! (often)  “ORGANIZE AND EDUCATE, THAT IS HOW WE END THE HATE”.


“Resistance to U.S. Imperialism. (War and Prisons.) We’re here taking Collective Action. We also want to build Collective Trust. Take a moment to get to know the folks around you.” [had a moment of “Meet and Greet” ] Then an Hispanic female from Families For Freedom led a ‘walk through’ of some chants, like:”We’re Gonna Bring Trump Down” and “End the US War Machine from Syria, to Iraq and the Philippines”. “We’re not gonna stand for Fascists like him and the Fascists he represents. He is the epitome of US Imperialism. How dare he slander all Muslims”

Playlist of all 11 short videos

However, I lost the video I took of the FAKE Republican. (My bad.) But, what a hoot she was! She was introduced as an EX-Republican! Now reformed. Enlightened. She sees the ERROR of her misguided days as a Repub. (ya think?)

What made her change?  “It was the HIS-To-Ry of FASCISM!!” (twitter link)

[Video from Ash J on Twitter #NYC Anti-#Trump protesters across street from Plaza]

“Your assignment today, if you choose to do it”
—  CLAIM to be an ex-Repub who voted for GW — (yeah. That’s the ticket)  fake repubFAKE REPUB WOMAN during her speech. (Do people actually BELIEVE her?) claimed to be EX GOP copyThe crowd during the speakers’ hour was also entertained by professional protestor, Marni Halasa. Often dressed as an NYPD “BIMBO Cop” aka Babs the Bankster-Buster. Whatever the costume, always on SKATES and Camera-Ready.

Do people READ her coyly written signs? Or do they just want to take a picture with a pretty girl.
Once the speakers dispersed, a team of “t.RUTT” artistes paraded a guerrilla-bus painted with “t. RUTT” (t. RUMP) ’round and ’round the Plaza traffic circle.
Even though the press was in absentia, the bus team was quite pleased with their guerrilla-art bus “success”. [See also Twitter link for bus]
The woman who was interviewed by NY1 ( in video at 00:56) seemed to represent the artist (or was the artist) not quite sure.

“Trump is a Black Swan ” (so says she) “… a metaphor that describes an event that comes as a surprise, has a major effect and is often inappropriately rationalized after the fact with the benefit of hindsight.

                                          VIDEO

                    

NEXT (after the t.RUMP bus) I found the Commies – a small group of Muslim, Arab, immigrant, and LGBTQ community members – at the south entrance to the Plaza regrouping after being THROWN OUT of the GOP Luncheon (See Part 2)

Commies crashed Trump-GOP Plaza Luncheon – Press Darlings (12-11-15) Part 2

[Continuing with separate posts from this multi-layered protest/ event, is Part 2]

December 11, 2015. Noon. NY’s Plaza Hotel.
Communities UNITED! Confronting Trump…

The GOP Banner-Nut Luncheon-Crashers was a small group of Commies, Muslim, Arab, immigrant, and LGBTQ community members – at the south entrance to the Plaza regrouping after being THROWN OUT of the GOP Luncheon. They were talking quietly to the press [“Muslim, Jewish, Queer, and Immigrant justice organizations joined together to pull off this critical action.

 “Wherever Trump goes, whenever he has a platform to speak, the people will be there to resist and disrupt”. SO, they went into attack mode as soon as they saw the volunteer from the Pennsylvania GOP talking to the press. He had to be shut-down with SCREAMING and screaming and more screaming.

Twitter video of the obnoxious harassment of the GOP volunteer

“Tell us WHY. Why do people gotta to DIE?”, “TRUMP is trying to bring us DOWN, attacking people Black and Brown”. He was relentlessly harassed (mid-interviews).

The Commies CHEERED as the volunteer was forced back inside the Plaza (First Amendment be damned) Pictured from L – Zakararia(h) Ismail Kronemer and Jamela Hammami. Far right, Jorge Gonzalez.
But, the GOP volunteer was NOT finished. He returned confidently and finished his interviews. (starting at 2:57 below) First part of  my video is the very LOUD verbal assaults by the Banner-Nuts.


FYI: Leading the harassment was “Megaphone-guy”, Zakarariah Kronemer, who is of Egyptian descent,   and the “Loud and Proud”, transgendered ,  Imami Henry [Staff Organizer at the International Action Center (IAC).]

Found more on the actual invasion. Seems the Islamophobia Banner-Nuts  managed to invade the GOP luncheon INside the Plaza. (In spite of LOTS of security) Because….

“An ally inside the event was able to open a side door allowing the four demonstrators to enter. The Arab and Latino protesters effectively disrupted Trump’s speech singing, “Mama Mama tell us why, why our people gotta die. Trump is trying to bring us down, attacking people black and brown.” A dozen security guards and some attendees of the event swarmed on the demonstrators and aggressively dragged them out. In the commotion, one of the members … an arab woman , Jamela Hammami, a demonstration organizer and Executive Director of the Queer Detainee Empowerment Project, was thrown to the ground.”

Videos reveal how resistant and practiced they at NOT leaving when asked. When ever possible they THROW themselves to the ground and wail and moan. What matters is lots of copy. Which they got.

Jorge Gonzalez, who was injured while serving in the Iraq war, was thrown down a flight of marble stairs after disrupting an event where Donald Trump was speaking inside the Plaza Hotel, demonstrators said.


This video of their unceremonious expulsion is from Twitter

Without too much searching, I found the names and predictable background info of the ‘players’ who crashed the Pennsylvania GOP luncheon. (All “Loud and Proud”)

Jamela Hammami, http://www.qdep.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/OC7A8896-1.jpgis an Arab Muslimah, N African Tunisian and exec dir of the Queer Detainee Empowerment Project. Also a key protest organizer leading the activists interrupting Trump’s $1,000-a-head GOP fundraiser. Zakarariah Kronemer, is an organizer for the Virginia youth climate justice movement who is  of Egyptian descent. He said, “The people must interrupt him (Trump) anywhere he is invited to speak. It’s leading to violence in the Arab community [in America]”.

Jamela Hammami, “(Trump’s) statements are completely steeped in levels of Islamapobia and Arabphobia…a symptom of being a part of american society still steeped in xenophobia reminiscent of the McCarthy era. We will continue to face hate and violence until we fight against it and demand safety and freedom for our people.”

2nd video of the expulsion from CBS News

“Mama, mama tell us why, why our people gotta die? Donald Trump is trying to bring us down, attacking people black and brown,” the mini mob chanted



The protesters had their own messages to impart and the press loved it. They are adored…respected…the “20-somethings” as well as the older Jewish contingent (who actually attended the luncheon.)

Jewish seniors, veterans, and white allies standing up to Trump’s hate and his manhandling goons.

From NY1

They were protesting Trump’s call to close the United States to Muslim immigrants and visitors.

“It’s our responsibility,” said Sandra Abramson of Jews for Racial and Economic Justice.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-hsXrBMRfqG0/AAAAAAAAAAI/AAAAAAAAACw/Xdu8ad_spzg/photo.jpg“We believe that this country has values and we need to uphold those values.”

Abramson, a Brooklyn resident, says she was allowed to take the elevator after being removed from the event.

Sandra Abramson, 69, one of the protesters, said she spent $3,000 to get herself and two friends into the event. She wanted to read a Bible passage, Leviticus 19:33, about the need to treat foreigners justly. She said security removed her, but Mr. Trump “just kept on talking.”

“He was talking about how terrible Hillary was, how terrible Obamacare was … and how terrible the world is except for “The Donald,“ Ms. Abramson said. Others said Mr. Trump also discussed his own strong polling, and the importance of Pennsylvania’s natural gas industry.

Of the check she signed to attend the event, Ms. Abramson said, ”It will be canceled immediately.

Other activists were tossed out more forcefully. “Trump is trying to bring us down,” they chanted outside. “We have a room in the hotel so we have a right to be here,” said protester Jamila Hammami. “But those guards pushed us down several flights of stairs.”

Hammami says Trump is to blame for the recent wave of hate crimes against Muslim-Americans. “This is because of the hate coming out of his mouth and no one is checking him,” she said.

In case you are curious, more info on the people outside the Plaza being interviewed by the press – after the “invasion” – THEY ARE  WAY TOO OFTEN PROFESSORS – of some sort – Educators. Our college tuition goes to their salaries – Our kids come home INDOCTRINATED.

There were eight older protestors who paid to attend the $1,000-a-plate luncheon, made loud statements during Trump’s speech” saying, outside the Plaza, that they were surprised and offended by their swift removal from the luncheon (Yeah. Sure they were)

“Judith Plaskow, 68, of New York, a Professor of Religious Studies at Manhattan College and a Jewish feminist theologian, http://jwa.org/sites/jwa.org/files/styles/scale_width_300px/public/mediaobjects/plaskow.jpg?itok=tNlz-0y0said she bought a ticket at the door with a $1,000 check – a check she hoped to later cancel. She was among a group of women ejected from the ballroom when they stood and started singing, “We are kind and welcoming people.” Asked why she attended, Plaskow said, “I feel ashamed to be an American right now. The level of hate speech that I’m hearing in the country right now, I find deeply, deeply disturbing.”

Plaskow said she is a member of Jews for Racial and Economic Justice and has many Muslim friends.

Another member, Jordan Wouk, http://www.mas.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/Jordan-Wouk.jpgsaid he used a ticket purchased by another activist and was driven to bear witness against Trump. “I wanted to try to let people know that not everybody approves of Trump’s hateful message,” said Wouk, 67, of Manhattan.

“… upstairs Jordan Wouk, a New York Democrat, along with his wife and two other protesters who had obtained tickets to the event, stood and started a disturbance by reciting a revised version of German pastor Martin Niemoller’s famous poem about the rise of the Nazi Party … The protesters recited the first few lines of their version, which began “First they came for the Muslims,” before being ejected by security.”

Jennifer Hirsch, a Columbia University professor who focuses her research on gender, sexuality, and reproductive health, U.S.-Mexico migration and migrant health, the comparative anthropology of love, and the applications of anthropological theory and methods to public health research and programs, was also bounced from the party, said it took just seconds for security to descend on her as she tried to read a statement aloud to the crowd.

“I kept reading it in my best professor voice,” she said, as guards dragged her to the exits.  [ https://twitter.com/JenniferSHirsch%5D

Jennifer
“I’m proud to be a Jew speaking out against Islamophobia,” she said.

Hirsch was among several protesters from a group called Jews for Racial and Economic Justice, who bought tickets, tried to interrupt Trump, and were ejected from the event.

But, the speakers were not the whole agenda.  There was a “pre-show” press event at 11 AM

Part 1 : keystone banner screen shotKeystone Progress executive director Michael Morrill saidWe put a petition online, asking the PA Republican Party to dis-invite Donald Trump as keynote speaker.” After collecting over 10,000 signatures they attempted to deliver said petition to the Pennsylvania GOP. Predictably, Morrill and Keystone Progress board member, Mike Crossey, were firmly “escorted” away from The Plaza Hotel entrance. (see Getty Images video below at 1:07)

Plaza Hotel Trump Protest : THE 2nd AMENDMENT vs the Commies (12-11-15) Part 1

[FYI- I’m posting this protest/event as a Three Part Series.]

Part OneTHE SECOND AMENDMENT vs the Commies

December 11, 2015. Noon. NY’s Plaza Hotel.
Communities UNITED! Confronting Trump…
Say NO to Trump’s Racism and Hate”

There was one very confident guy (Italian- from Brooklyn) A solid one-man counter-protest promoting Smart Gun Ownership. Wearing a sandwich board with an ad from a local Firing Range, he LOUDLY urged the crowd to LEARN HOW To DEFEND YOURSELF.
This brave American drove the Commies insane.

In Video 1 (at 00:58) He  urged them to “LEARN how to Protect your Family“. Warned that “ISIS is HERE”. [The hecklers were now being HECKLED!] They went silent (Fun) while  deciding how to react…(group-think)… Oh,Yeah! Cover him with signs and shout “Dump Trump! Dump Trump!

Video 2
The Commie speaker, Percy Lujan,  when he finally spoke- after being cut off by ” Gun-Guy” – suddenly he was promoting “Learn How to Defend Yourself”

Video 3

After the protest speakers had finished, I found the Second Amendment guy speaking to the press right in front of the Plaza. He was emphasizing the importance of ‘Learning to Shoot Firearms Safely” to a French reporter who seemed to have some difficulty with the idea that the people in Paris might have lived if they had been armed with hand guns. There was one heckler and a female reporter to my left, who closed up her camera with a scornful shake of the head.

Some of his points: They’re trying to take away our Second Amendment rights. Rights that our soldiers fought to defend. He mentioned No Fly Lists. That include our soldiers.  He stressed, You Need to Protect Yourself. You need to have a hand gun. Mentions Texas (Garland, Texas) Pointing out that those terrorists lasted about 10 seconds. He says we need a President like Donald Trump to change the gun laws so States like NY/Chicago can get concealed weapons license permits.

BTW –  He was grossly misquoted by one of the Commies (of course). “Gun-Guy” was to the side of the protest – not in front- and did NOT call for violence nor call any one present RETARDS or Terrorists. [LISTEN to his OWN words in videos above]

69mirs One of #trump ‘s supporters #pro #hate #pro #gun and who is #racist he stood in front of us calling us “retards, terrorists and invited the tourists walking by us to learn to shoot guns so they can protect themselves from us” I am so angry that he felt protected as a white male and that he felt entitled to show up with pictures of guns and calling for violencewhat did the police do ? When he was verbally attacking us ? Nothing … If this person was a person of color we would have been already shot, manhandled, or choked to death …. – #DropTrump #no more #war #no more #

The US Constitution made an appearance. Along with the ONLY Old Glory I saw and it was being used as a blind-fold.
So, Who or What is the problem?…. Guns? Criminals? Terrorists?…. The U.S. Constitution vs INTERNATIONAL Law??

“Power to the People”, Si? [ONLY if you are NOT a Republican]

See Daniel Greenfield’s very timely article

America […. ]is being dragged down by broken cities full of broken families whose mayors would like to trash the Bill of Rights for the entire country in the vain hope that national gun control will save their cities, even though gun control is likely to be as much help to Chicago or New Orleans as the War on Drugs.

Obama’s pretense that there needs to be a national conversation about rural American gun owners is a dishonest and cynical ploy that distracts attention from the real problem that he and politicians like him have sat on for generations.

America does not have a gun problem. Its problem is in the broken culture of cities administered by Democrats. We do not need to have a conversation about gun violence [… ]We need to have a conversation about what the Democrats have done to our cities.

The long winded Commie blather- you might think you’d hear this tripe just in the movies- NOOPE these people REALLY speak like:

First,  Comrade Tony Murphy, promoting the next Trump protest on Dec 20 (covered here), as he urged the crowd to attend in his best commie-tones.

Ending the Speakers hour with WARNINGS of FASCISM and Greedy CAPITALISM was this fiery Commie lass.

“Dump Trump” Prayer Protest- Commies & Muzzies – AGAIN (NYC) 12-20-15

December 20, 2015 – NYC- Trump Towers. Fifth Avenue and 56th st. NO TO “RACISM”, “NO TO TRUMP AND HIS MEDIA MEGAPHONE”, “NO TO HATERY.”

12303932_943220672379611_2088524432478391280_o

 

 

 

 

As I arrived, I observed a coalition of Prayer-Protesting Muslims and Communist facilitators,  Bill Doares (below) of Workers World
… and their Communist “led and fed” students.
Also, the usual “anti-war” agitators (from multiple groups)
… pro-ILLEGAL trespassers (also members of multiple groups)
and VILE, angry “anti-racist”aka hard-core Black Commie RACISTS gathered outside Trump Towers. (see Kim Ortiz  below , a lead organizer for NYC Shut It Down and Black Lives Matter )
The Muslim protestors said they, too, were there to oppose the “racism” promoted by Trump’s campaign.

The FACT that Islam is not a Race goes unmentioned.

But, since the Muslims billed this as a Prayer Protest, that’s what a small group of Muslims did (for two hours).

While a hard-core group of (atheistic) Commies and militant Muslims shouted slogans and preached hatred against Trump, America, Israel and the police (all of these groups were ANTI-Police) 
But, how about some history: Pre-Islamic history. These Indonesian Muslims were invaded,CONQUERED by the “Sword Of Islam”. Like the Copts of Egypt. The Jews of the Holy Land. The Persian Zoroastrians of Iran. Why don’t the Indonesians DEMAND their history and culture back with shouts of  ISLAM INVADERS GET OUT. Nope. They go silent. (sort of)
At moments like these, all must forget Al Qaeda. The Taliban. The Islamic State. Jihadis. “The Donald” is the focus of their ‘fear’ and anger as they PRAY to their Moon god, Allah, to rid the world of  “That Racist pig – Donald Trump.”
Get WISE. Get Smart. Like this costumed chap who warns we should only FEAR Fox News and that “Shit Stain“, Donald Trump.
Or this guy – with a few CLUMPS of ?? (for sale) Perfect stocking stuffers for Christmas. Just $12 and be on your way! (Whatever) Even the anti-Capitalism Commies do NOT waste a moment to make-a-buck.
The Commies had an interloper. But, never fear,  Commie – thug, Bill Doares, made sure this loud, whistle-blowing purveyor of conflicting messages was NOT in their pen.  A threatening ,“We don’t want you here” is usually Doares’ first line-of-attack. 
The interloper (uninvited) stepped outside the enclosure, cautiously, where he hung around awhile …
…til he decided to whistle-assault the NY ICE protest on the Fifth Avenue side.
Back to 56th Street. Costumes. Pithy signs and LOTS of speakers. Muslim speakers. Commie speakers. Angry Black and “illegal trespasser” speakers. Come one, come all. (not really)
Throughout the  protest, the Commies walked the perimeter; keeping watch over their flocks (like Tony Murphy below). They don’t let just anyone join their protests.Naming just a few that I captured on-the-job:  Sara Flounders, Andy Pollack, Tony Murphy, Imani Henry, Kim Ortiz (of the very angry Black Lives Commie) and the ever scowling, Bill Doares (seen earlier – up top). ANGER . Scowls. de reguerre.
They Orchestrate. “Control and Patrol” the photo-ops. Making sure the media has plenty to record: Anger. Passion… “Humor”…. 
And Prayers. Muslims-in-prayer. Muslims chanting against terrorism. Everyone chanting, parroting, droning …. on and on …. and on.

VIDEO

There was even this faux march of Muslims to NO WHERE (held within the enclosure)

VIDEO

No photo-ops go unanswered.
Playing to the cameras, the Muslims were eager. Buoyant. Even playful. Unfortunately, as the videos reveal, their accented English made the chants mostly unintelligible.

VIDEO

At 3:30, as I left the festivities, I took one last look at the protest on the 56 st side. The agitated and outraged speakers were still bellowing through their VERY LOUD amplification while the prayer-protest continued on silently.

VIDEO

The actual protest had started at 2 pm. It was still 30 minutes til the 4 march. This unsavory group was going to tie-up lots of the NYPD (to protect them? or to protect the public?). Whatever, these officers are ‘off-patrol’ – not able to keep our city safe – while these anarchists marched to Fox News and CNN.  Unlike the police, I was able to skip the march. It’s the same ol same ol. If you’ve seen one march, you’ve seen them ALL.

And then, in closing, Sara Flounders (of Ramsey Clark’s International Action Center), stern warning to her Comrades as she inspired them to Dump Trump:

“Whenever fascism rears its ugly head, it is the duty of all progressive forces to unite in solidarity and struggle against it. On December 20 (2015) let’s join together and say ENOUGH! Join the Unity Rally!”
