Patriots vs The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go! No Nuclear War! Protest

August 9, 2017 – 8 AM – NYC – This was the first anti-fascist FASCIST speaker of the “No Nuclear War! The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!” protest. He droned on and on – while standing in front of their mock DRONE – about impeaching President Trump.

“The Resist a Fascist America” FASCISTS gathered the day before the anniversary of Nagasaki, in front of Fox News, to defend the TOTALITARIAN hell-hole called, North Korea. The enemy (for them) is the United States (it’s not just the Trump/Pence REGIME). They never met a totalitarian government they wouldn’t DEFEND.

The counter-protest was small, but any opposition makes the anti-fascist FASCISTS very VERY upset, so standing up to their lies is worth it, knowing they can’t handle the truth.

Lead this day by Commie – Fascist, Debra Sweet ( Of World Can’t Wait). Under Debra the tone is never peaceful. This is a woman who sends her minions out to harass, confront, to shut down Free Speech. Not shy when it comes to initiating confrontation, Debra swirled around the public sidewalk commandeering this public space – no opposition allowed. Police and the opposition were relegated t0 the sidelines. The fascists conquerors made a grand play at calling the shots and using harassment to control “their space” this early morn.

Anti-fascist FASCIST speaker # 2 . She too droned on and on, her theme: “Fire and Fury” and Trump’s planned mass-murder of the North Koreans. The ONLY hope for the North Koreans: The Trump/Pence REGIME Must Go.

She’s baaack. Fascist recruiter, Eva Sahana, shrieking her fascist mantra at the passerby on their way to work. And while she was speaking, the get off our streets harassment of this photographer, began, announcing that I was a FASCIST SPY.

Harassing the Pro-Trump counter-protest was a very important mission for fascist leader, Debra Sweet, of World Can’t Wait, and her minions.

It’s a “nucular” nightmare! SHRIEKED another fascist babe who assaulted the ears of the passersby. Her diatribe on “It’s a “Nucular” Nightmare” and “This isn’t Normal” managed to create an amusing mike-check exchange between the ‘warring-factions with her nuculars vs the nuclears.

A very angry Filipino fascist ranted about Trump’s bankruptcies, “He doesn’t pay anybody” (laced with expletives that he hurled at the pro-Trump counter-protestor, while blocking my camera). His vile rant was also aimed at the NYPD officers on-duty. As he stormed off – an elderly man walked up to and lectured the Pro-Trumper on “Fire and Fury”. Then with a royal flip of his hand said, “Take that sign Down” – as he too stormed off.

The “Support President Trump” counter-protesters were led by a “Support Blue Lives” flag. Interesting. The fascist demonstrators went silent- hard to believe- but since they were packing up early, perhaps they were just out-of-steam. They left approximately 45 minutes before their scheduled end. SO, we hung around while they oh-so-carefully packed their mock DRONE into the back of their “Out of Iraq-Afghanistan” car.

+++ Their Facebook announcement info++

The day before the anniversary of Nagasaki, Trump declared “North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen, he has been very threatening beyond a normal state. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”

Trump’s threats of nuclear war are a nightmare for humanity and the planet! This nightmare must end. The Trump Pence Regime Must Go.

Join RefuseFascism.org and protest in front of Fox News Headquarters to say NO! “The Trump/Pence Regime MUST GO” before they incinerate humanity.

Only the people acting together in determined struggle, taking to the public squares day after day, night after night, not leaving until the regime is forced to go,  can we save humanity and our planet. Hosted by RefuseFascism.org

More on their fearless fascist leader, Debra Sweet. I am blocked and harassed from a public sidewalk by Debra and her minions.
FASCIST Debra Sweet is the Director of World Can’t Wait : atheist, revolutionary communist cause the world doesn’t have to be this way. whose mission is stopping the crimes of the U.S. …. and I’M a FASCIST SPY….

 ++ March on. March on. As they Take to the Streets. So must we++

Take To The Streets. Sunday, August 13, Condemn the Racist, Murdering Nazi Thugs in Charlottesville, Virginia

*Sunday, we meet at 2pm to rally at Columbus Circle, then MARCH TO TRUMP TOWER at 3pm!*
Monday, 5 pm, Trump Tower
Tuesday, 5 pm, Trump Tower

This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!
In the Name of Humanity, We REFUSE to Accept a Fascist America.

One person murdered and 19 wounded by KKK/Nazi thugs in Charlottesville, Virginia have shown the whole world the reality of the Trump/Pence Regime’s fascist America. Parading through the streets with torches chanting “Hail Trump” while spouting the most vile racism and anti-semitism these shock troops revealed the ugly face of the fascist future that the Trump/Pence Regime is hammering into place.

Even after learning of death of one of the people standing up against these fascist thugs, Donald Trump would not even utter words of condemnation of their vicious white supremacy, anti-semitism and their open aspousal of Nazi slogans of “Blood and Soil.” Trump wouldn’t even offer condolence for the person murdered by these fascists.

THIS REGIME MUST BE STOPPED. The lives of millions of Black people, immigrants, women and lgbtq people hang in the balance along with the lives of billions of people around the world as the Trump/Pence Regime threatens North Korea with “fire and fury.” We must get organized NOW, in a serious way, to STOP THIS REGIME.

ALL Sides must prepare for their next battle front – November 4th

Refuse Fascism has a plan: On November 4th, We will gather in the streets and public squares of cities and towns across this country, at first, many thousands declaring that this whole regime is illegitimate and that we will not stop until our single demand is met: The Nightmare Must End: the Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!

Our protest must grow day after day and night after night – thousands becoming hundreds of thousands, and then millions – determined to act to put a stop to the grave danger that the Trump/Pence Regime poses to the world by demanding that this whole regime be removed from power.

Be part of making this vision a reality. Come the Northeast Regional Conference to plan November 4th on Saturday, August 19 at 12 PM – 6 PM. The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center
208 W 13th St, New York, New York .

Who will end this nightmare? We will. Only the determined struggle of millions of people acting together with courage and conviction can drive this regime from power. Who should attend this conference?

Students and youth, the faith community, representatives of organizations and people who are unaffiliated, artists and professionals, long-time activists and folks who have never protested before – everyone who wants to see the nightmare of the Trump/Pence Regime end and is willing to act together to accomplish this. (REGISTER for the conference)

Patriots, prepare for their “War in the Streets”, to turn the tide of their revolution.

It doesn’t take an army to make a difference.

NYC Rally To REFUSE a Fascist America vs Patriots

“In the name of HUMANITY, we REFUSE to accept a FASCIST AMERICA!”

June 15, 2017 – a NYC day of protest hosted by Mohammad Hamad on face book. His mission statement ended with this delusional plea, We  need NYC to have a voice.

I arrived at approximately 3:30 [scheduled to start at 4pm] and found the  “IMPEACH TRUMP! National Day of Protest” already going strong.

( Flickr slide show)

DSC_6402

A national protest, in 19 cities, organized by various partners of the RESIST TRUMP COALITION as they LAUNCHED a series of events and protests.

report can be found here of their pre-launch 100-hours Fox News Protest where they set up a stationary table to broadcast their exposé of Fox Fascist News. Usually the security guards tell photographers and video cams to keep moving in this public plaza. Til now.

Next day they launched their March against Fascism with the anti-fascism PLEDGE – heard at 1:15 in the first video.

A ‘righteous’ pledge said with fists held high by anti-fascist FASCISTS culminating in the pièce de résistance, “In the name of HUMANITY, we REFUSE to accept a FASCIST AMERICA!”

If only these foolish FASCISTS would get a life…

Transcribed a rally leader’s opening speech (from the video above) including the pledge to the “Fascist America of their dreams”.

“Before we get started officially, I wanta ask all you early birds, all you who are early to the “party”, who know how to show up and make yourself (?) No to Trump, to join us in a pledge we (do) to Refuse Fascism. You put your fist in the air and you repeat after me. And you do this with your whole heart and you do it with every fiber of your being; and we’re going to make a commitment to pledge today, to each other, to our self and to the people-of-the-world.

                      [Fists in air the crowd repeats each line]
In the name of Humanity (repeat) In the NAME of Humanity (repeat) We refuse (repeat)  We REFUSE (repeat)To accept (repeat) a Fascist America (repeat) We will not wait (repeat) We will not normalize(repeat) We will not accommodate (repeat) We will not capitulate (repeat) We will RISE (repeat) and we will DRIVE them OUT! (repeat) All right.” (cheers)

Next the “sheeple” parroted this brain-dead chant: “No KKK, No Fascist USA. No Trump” which led to more pep-talk lies.

“Thank you for coming out. Not just to protest their policy on immigrants, that we are against that. Not just to protest the assaults on women. No, we absolutely are against that. We are here not just on behalf of refugees. G-d damn right we are here for refugees. (cheers, drums)

We are HERE to reject and repudiate, to get organized, to drive out the ENTIRE Trump/Pence FASCIST regime. (CHEERS, Drums)

So we’re going to be rallying here for a little while. We’ll chant. Get the energy up. We are gonna march thru the streets of NYC. (cheers)

We are standing with our sisters and brothers in Houston. In Atlanta. In Oklahoma City. In Honolulu. In Los Angeles. In Berkley. All over this country. Chicago. All kinds of places. (BIG Cheers)

And we are living in critical times. (repeats) We are living in critical times, a Fascist regime has seized the reigns of power. They are terrorizing immigrants. They are banning Muslims. They are normalizing and celebrating a culture of sexual violence against women. (..?..) they took LGBTQ  right-off their government web-site. They are denying climate change.  They are revoking environmental protection.

We are living in a time when what we do or what we fail to do will put to shame the future of this country and of the world. Here the American people are in power. And the difference is he has nuclear weapons. He is endangering the entire planet.

That is why we are out today.  And today is going to mark a new stage — a new stage of our struggle where we are not gonna to stay in the corner that he puts us as part of fascism- if they even allow protests to become normalized, the (?ruinized) and meaningless and (?later) marginal.

So today we are breaking-out. And we’re not just criticizing. We are not begging. We are demanding. (CHEERS and drums) TRUMP MUST GO. (chanting)

On the patriot-side of Fifth Ave., I over heard some polite debates and one particularly obnoxious anti-fascist Fascist diatribe.

LIES and agit-prop spewed over and over to an eager crowd of apostles: Gen X-ers, Millennials and, of course, the left-over boomers fleshed out the crowd; a last gasp for them as they relive their protest glory-days. All were ranting on and on about a red-herring called Fascist America.

 Recognized a “mini celeb”, That Guitar Man From Central Park  . A member of the last gasp Post-WW2 Baby-Boom Generation. Mr. Peace and Love. A 60 years old rebel-hippie from the park.  One clueless  aging- boomer whose spawn is going to be the RUIN of America, as his t-shirt makes so obvious:

                                              “I’m against the Next War” t-shirt.
Yeah, that’s the ticket

Like so many other seniors on the street this day, he was hating on his country and passing it off as patriotism. But, twisted history, twisted reality makes for strange bed-fellows …  and their off-spring.  G-d help us all,

David Ippolito — That Guitar Man from Central Park


Mr. Guitar Man
also announced he was pulling an old song outta his hat, “Get Out Our House… ” for all of those fearful, ignorant people who put Donald Trump in the White House .”


OY – the arrogance.

Finally, around 5:00 – 5:30 , the “anti-fascist” Fascists began their LONG March.

First to Columbus Circle, then a turn down Seventh Ave. towards Times Square and finally Union Square.

Another game-move, the intentional misuse of the NYPD, making them babysit these fascists for many, many hours, all over the city. Protecting them? Or protecting us?

The Fascist Rules-of-Treason, “With threat of riots and violence, they manage to also humiliate and demoralize the police and confuse and frighten the public.” Under the pretense of a “patriotism” earned, the commie/prog/soc/fascisti CONFUSE and obfuscate.

 But what are they, really. WHO are they? Rebels or “Patriots’.

The neighbor next door? The teacher? The professor? Local merchants? Artists? Musicians and …. actors? Exhorting all to be quiet, make nice, Go Away as they LIVE and breathe their fascist mantra,  “Free speech for THEM but not for THEE”.

 

The fascist-scum should be careful what they wish for. History does repeat itself. Russia 1917, Lenin, Stalin, Castro, Chavez – a long list of the duped intelligentsia erased – eliminated- once the revolutionaries took control of a foolish majority. Can it happen here? It IS happening here, thanks to the anti-fascist Fascisti and the complicit media.

There WAS also a counter-protest. A DIVERSE group of patriots who oppose the soc/commie/progs and the anti-fascist FASCISTS.

Diversity thy name is American Patriots.

America is not lost. Yet.

Even though too many of our cities – our college towns – our educational meccas are run by these anarchists, if we get organized, we CAN make America great again.

In the words of the anti-fascist Fascist babe, “Make a commitment today with all of your heart. This must be a moment in history when we stand together with conviction and courage, over-coming fear and uncertainty; to resist and say NO, not just for ourselves but in the name of humanity.” Yes. The Soc/Commie/ Fascist Revolution MUST BE STOPPED.

[Pictures and Videos ( where indicated) property of Pamela Hall]

Lastly,  there was the blond, hair-flipping: Eva. Another Refuse a Fascist America clone. Her task at hand: Recruit. Recruit. Recruit.

Her entire speech is something most of us choose to skip; her empty, florid words that beguile the hearts and minds of her youthfully ignorant audience.

Students and 20-somethings swamped by repetitive and righteous words that flow from babes like Eva, sent by her superiors to RECRUIT. She is their hope. Their future.

Anarchy 101 lives on, unchallenged; protected by the First Amendment, and always culminating with those f-ing FISTS jabbed in the AIR.

[Eva transcription follows]
Part 1 Eva

“Thank you everyone, it’s so inspiring to see so many people here.

In the name of humanity we refuse to accept a Fascist America. In the Name of Humanity. Driving out a fascist regime is not a small matter. It will not be easy. But it is what we MUST do, going forward from today. Every day we face the growing threat of nuclear war and the escalated devastation of the planet. Immigrants. Muslims. Women. LGBTQ people. The elderly. The sick. the disabled. Black and Latino people are ALL in direct peril.

We pledge today to unite. To stand up. To resist. And to act with conviction and courage. And to resist til this regime is driven from power.(cheers)

We make this pledge because, what is at stake in confronting this fascist regime of Donald Trump and Mike Pence, is nothing less than the future of humanity and the health and survival of life on earth.

Refuse Fascism recognizes and appreciates all of you here and across the country who have come out today. You are HERE because YOU REFUSE to sit by and look the other way. With so many fled in terror, who fear being locked up or deported, you are here because you see the danger that is the Trump and Pence regime. YOU will NOT be a person who says, “When they came for the Muslims, I did nothing because I was not a Muslim.” YOU will NOT be a person who says, “When they came for the immigrants I did nothing because I was not an immigrant.”

WE stand up today, because we must act while there is still time to stop a world-wide catastrophe.

So, I wanta give a special shout-out to those that Refuse Fascism in Houston, who are protesting today. They have come out in defiance of the Orwellian-named fascist (?) Texas Freedom Court. Who called on their rabid followers to counter-protest with guns and the Confederate flag of slavery. They are trying to INTIMIDATE people from standing-up to demand that the Trump and Pence regime must go.

We recognize, too, the Los Angeles Refuse Fascism protest that begins at the obscene Donald Trump Hollywood Star, which a group of fascist fanatics have (vowed) to defend.

Refuse Fascism has answers. When you are defending in Houston and (?) of racism and fascist regimes that threaten the planet, NO. We will not be moved. (cheers)

And shout-out HERE to Refuse Fascism New York City, who for One Hundred Hours, night and day, has been out in front of the Fox News Headquarters, saying, NO. [Cheers]

Since its inception by the sexual predator, Roger Ailes, Fox has been the lying voice and the propaganda machine that has built up and cohered the many fascist dreams in this country. Then today, it is the biggest mouth-piece for the Trump and Pence fascist regime.

One-hundred hours in-the-heat, overnight in-the-rain, in-the-sun, bringing out the reality of what this regime has done and plans to do. Refuse Fascism stands  (for)Servitude, Fortitude and Commitment. (It) foreshadows the kind of determined perseverance that more and more people need to take on; ultimately, millions. To put their lives on hold. To reclaim not only our own future, but the future of Humanity by driving out the Trump and Pence regime. [5:02]

 To everyone who is standing up today, in defiance of this regime, you are in the right place. [CHEERS]

Today is the beginning of what must be a new stage of our struggle. There must be no illusion about what we face. We must discuss and debate deeply with one another, to come to understand the tremendous necessity we face in confronting a regime, in the most powerful country in the world, that is hell-bent on consolidating fascism. It is an American fascism, Manifest Destiny and American Exceptionalism; a fascism wrapped in the Bible taken literally and the America flag saturated with phrases and misogyny and xenophobia.

Going forward from today, we must shatter the illusion and all the self-delusion that what we face is just another in a long line of bad administration. Or that the checks and balances of the system will prevail and rescue us. That is not true, that would be turning away from the situation that we confront.

The task before us is not just to strengthen our resistance, or merely to find a way that our different struggles can come together . We must sound and then answer the alarm, ….. that whether or not there will even be the political, the legal and the  civic space for defense and resistance.

Already, in State after State and at the Federal level they are moving to criminalize and eliminate dissent and protest. The rights and the dignity of the people have no place in the program or the courséd heart of this regime. No! We must transform our resistance to become something far more serious, a struggle that can alter the course of history, driving out a regime that imperils us all. [7:24]

As we gather today there is great anxiety and fear and trauma as group after group is demonized and targeted by this regime. Piece by piece rights are being stripped away against one group and then another. All the while, we are surrounded by a dizzying blizzard of lies and buffoonery. ALL of this is setting in motion the slippery and ever steepening slope that will lead to great horrors if this regime is not stopped. This is why we say, and we must say again and again, backing-up our voice with action,”In the Name of Humanity We Refuse to Accept a Fascist America.” [8:00]

We say this because while fascism has many characteristics, racism, misogyny and xenophobia, to name only a few, at its core it is a form of rule that relies on open terror and open violence; trampling on what are supposed to be civil rights and legal rights. Fascism wields the power of the State and it mobilizes organized groups of fanatical thugs to commit atrocities against masses of people. Especially the groups of people they identify as enemies, undesirables or dangerous to society. The question has been posed, “Could it happen here?” The answer is, “Yes, it IS happening here.” And it is OUR responsibility, every single one of us, to stop it before it chokes-off the air in society.

Make no mistake, while the media focuses people’s attention on charges of collusion and Trump’s narcissism, the regime has been very steadily moving ahead with their program on every front. When the media, including even liberal media like MSNBC, say things like, “Trump is holding a campaign rally to boost his own morale.” They are misleading you. They are obscuring the truth that these are fascist rallies. The reality is that Trump is consciously whipping-up his social base. He is stoking their sense of aggrievement and revenge with calls to take back THEIR country; trying to cleanse America of multi-culturalism. He is fueling a bigoted WHITE resentment and promoting a patriarchal woman-hating political form of Christian fundamentalism.

And these forces are moving, lead from the top, claiming that THEY are the victims. Claiming that their so-called right to free-speech, really their right to threaten and beat-up anyone who stands is their way, is under attack. [10:17 – End Part 1]

Part 2 Eva

[Begin Part 2 – 10:18] Identifying the nature of the problem we face is the first step to finding a solution. To treat a disease requires an accurate diagnosis. Defeating this fascist regime requires first recognizing what it is without sugar-coating or wishful thinking.

Trump is a FASCIST straight up. (Cheers) And Pence is one of the most reactionary political figures in modern U.S. history in his complete devotion to bringing into being a theocratic, Christian, fascist government.

But, in the very extremeness of Donald Trump and Mike Pence also resides the key to the way out. This regime has shocked the conscience of millions of people. People who never really gave that much thought to politics have been anguished and politically aroused as few times ever before. This is what WE must tap into. We have to give people a way to express their outrage. We must lead people to act in unprecedented ways. To demand that this regime be removed from power. Nothing else will be sufficient to stop it.  

It is so important that the last few months have been marked by repeated protests. But this protest and resistance against the many attacks on the people must grow broader, deeper and more determined. The Resistance is righteous and it is necessary but it is not yet sufficient. It is a matter of life and death to recognize that the character of fascism is that it can absorb separate acts-of-resistance while continually throwing the opposition off-balance and rapidly moving its agenda forward.

The reality is that the Trump and Pence regime will repeatedly launch new highly repressive measures, eventually clamping down on all resistance and remaking the law IF they are not driven out-of-power.

You cannot wait out fascism. We must never normalize or accommodate to fascism. If you do you will very soon find yourself conciliating and collaborating to save yourself or to help a few people escape the maelstrom.

The hour is late and we must not speak falsely, even with the best of intentions. If you are only working within the terms set by this regime. If you are ONLY advising and helping a few individuals that the attacks come down harder by the days. Sooner and not later you will be forced to become part of the machinery of real horror. Now is the time for massive resistance. There is NO neutral.

[13:40] THIS is the lesson of Nazi Germany and every other Fascist State, it CAN become TOO late. But, it is not yet too late. This must be a summer of struggle, leading into the Fall where more and more people begin to coalesce around a single unified demand: the Trump and Pence machine must go. [Cheers]

And in this moment, especially when the Trump and Pence regime faces scandal and turmoil, (leading) to see this as an opening for the mass-action of the people to burst through.

(shouting) We must make our demands (…) throughout the country and the halls of power and around the world, the Trump and Pence regime MUST GO![CHEERS] Over the summer and into the Fall we must act, we must agitate and we must organize. Join us. Join us in building capacity and momentum, working with ALL our creativity and determination toward the time when millions can be moved to flood the streets of cities and towns, day after day, and night after night, refusing to leave and declaring this whole regime and its supporters illegitimate; demanding and not stopping until this regime is driven from power. [Cheers] 

If this happens, then the whole political landscape can be transformed dramatically. Every faction within the established power-structure would be forced to respond and all of this could lead to a situation in which this regime is driven from office.

So, what we are calling for is unprecedented. But, at the same time, there are models and experience to learn from. Nixon and his Vice-President, Spiro Agnew, were both driven from power. And more recently, in South Korea, millions filled the streets, night after night. At first they started just on the week-end and then they eventually through (sic) their president out-of-power. In Ukraine, in Tahrir Square in Egypt, people in their millions protested day after and night after night, creating a political crisis to those in power to remove despised leaders. [16:20]

There were short-comings, for sure. And there are differences. But, never. NEVER underestimate the power of the people when we struggle righteously in the interest of humanity. [CHEERS]

[16:37] We CAN do this. The people out there, the anger is there. Starting with those of us who stepped-up, right here today; and around the country, today. If we act, creatively, with determination. If we confront their regime and their representatives, and their institutions and their fascist (?) supporters; if we always do so in a way that brings the truth to their lies; if we make people feel that immigrants, muslims, women, black and latino people, LGBTQ people and people all over the world are full human beings; if we show, in word and deed, that we will not accept the cruel and brutal future of the Trump and Pence regime the we CAN bring forward the people needed to drive them OUT. [cheers]

So we need to hit-the-road, we need to send out bands of people, we need to organize young-people, dedicated to making this a summer of (troubles?) to drive out the fascist regime. Donate and raise funds, become a volunteer and as the summer progresses work one day a week and then on week-ends growing numbers of people should gather, showing through what they do  that there must NOT be (…?..) as long as this regime is in power. [18:12 – cheers]

Before you leave today, sign up to be a part of all of this. You can be a part of protests, distributing literature at work and on week-ends, part of making (resistance art ?) and so many other ways; to strategize with your group, to strategize with your friends and with Refuse Fascism.

If we organize. If we dare to confront those who are imposing terror, repression and hardship on the people; if we have open-arms to welcome and (cross-over) more people into this (place), this week combined with the growing impact of the regime and the events in the world, with the potential through millions to act.

But, if we don’t organize and if we don’t start (asking) for the demand the Trump/Pence regime must go, then the opportunity to drive them out and prevent these cruelties (?) can be lost.

It is true there is much to figure out. That is ALWAYS the case when fighting against great injustice.

Not everything was figured out but the Freedom Ride against Jim Crow began in the South. Victory was hardly guaranteed and there were tremendous sacrifices. But, was it worth it? No question.

The Trump and Pence Regime Must Go. This is righteous demand. [CHEERS] This is a righteous demand, the fight to achieve it will be difficult. But, it CAN be done. We will learn and we will chart-our-course and we focus together.

Join us in this. Make a commitment today with all of your heart. This must be a moment in history when we stand together with conviction and courage, over-coming fear and uncertainty; to resist and say NO, not just for ourselves but in the name of humanity. the Trump and Pence regime MUST GO. [cheers]

[20:33] I wanta close in having everyone take a pledge with me. Everyone, raise your fists in the air. And here is how it goes (SHOUTING as the crowd repeats after her)

NO (repeat) NO (repeat) NO (repeat) In Name of Humanity (repeat) In the NAME of HUMANITY (repeat)We REFUSE (repeat) to ACCEPT (repeat) a Fascist America. (repeat) WE REFUSE (repeat) to ACCEPT (repeat) a FASCIST America. (repeat)

Thank you to everyone who came out today. [cheers]

Thugs “ALL out for Al AQSA” in Times Square (Pics & Vids)

July 22, 2017. Times Square
1 pm to 3 pm
**
Their message was clear
“PALESTINE” ~vs~ EVERYBODY”

“Allah” is with those who serve others (Prophet Muhammad)

A young Israeli woman insisted ‘Palestinians’, “Only want PEACE.” Some. Sure. (maybe)

 So, did the Muslims (and Commies) hold another protest in Times Square to spread their message of PEACE? (or NOT)

 In their own words, from American Muslims for Palestine – NJ Chapter

“AMP is alarmed by the recent developments at the Al Aqsa mosque compound in Jerusalem. Israeli authorities closed the mosque for Friday prayers last week. When it reopened, worshipers were greeted with metal detectors and checkpoints outside the mosque’s gates.

Israel is using the current situation in Jerusalem as a pretext to implement long-standing plans to divide Al Aqsa mosque like they did to the Ibrahimi mosque in Hebron. This new move violates international law, restricts freedom of religion and violates the internationally agreed upon status quo of the Al Aqsa compound. Join us as we protest these Israeli aggressions!”

Protest Co-sponsors:

International Action Network
Jews for Palestinian Right of Return
Labor for Palestine
Samidoun: Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network
Rutgers SJP
NYC Students for Justice in Palestine

The fist on the poster – not much of an olive branch. Claiming to be peaceful while they sucker-punch the world. Violence is their “Peace”.

The NEW JDL-NY was, also, there; to protest the recent  murder of a Jewish family , in their home by a “Palestinian” terrorist.

“The victims were celebrating the birth of a grandson when the “Palestinian” terrorist, 19-year-old Omar al-Abed, entered their home armed with a large knife and stabbed to death a father and his two adult children.”

Abed said, “He was wanting to commit a terror attack because of events surrounding the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.”

 

Peace? When these Muslim protests have managed to inspire Muslim murderers like Abed. Without apology.

The protest crowd included flag-runners and flag-thieves, aggressive “yutes” bussed in from Jersey, spreading their message of “peace”.

Filling the air with chants, cheers and jeers, along with air horns and ‘motivational” speakers, they all did their duty.

Playing to themselves, and the confused passersby, they screamed their “peaceful” lies across Seventh Ave. [One small pleasure, the press wasn’t interested.]

Slogans. signs. chants. t-shirts. Add them up and there is no doubt: the Commie-Muslim rabble at this protest have no intention of living PEACEFULLY with anyone, least of all the Jews in Israel.


JEWS, get out of “Palestine”. Israel. Gaza. The Middle East. Where ever there are Muslims – Jews Begone.

And their LIES continue unchallenged by the media.

BUT, that challenge was met Without Apology by the NEW JDL-NY.

FACT: The TEMPLE MOUNT belongs to the JEWS. Occupation by the Muslims does not make it a mosque. It’s still the Temple Mount. So PROTEST WE MUST.

A confused public rarely understands the Neturei Karta. And a sign like “It’s Not about RELIGION” makes no sense when we know it’s ALL about religion: Islam is at war with the world.

More bogus claims:

Israel is using the current situation in Jerusalem as a pretext to implement long-standing plans to divide Al Aqsa mosque like they did the Ibrahimi mosque in Hebron.

Israel violates international law, restricts freedom of religion.

This new move violates international law, restricts freedom of religion and violates the internationally agreed upon status quo of the Al Aqsa compound.”

Knowing there is always a possibility of confrontations, orchestrated by the Muslim thugs, the NYPD asks US to (make nice), KEEP THE PEACE. Why? Because the police can trust us.

Flashback to the May 25 AFDI Protest/ Rally led by Pamela Geller, a vivid example of Muslim-Leftie harassment unchecked. They insisted they were protected (by LAW) from police harassment.

[In the two pictures that follow – the speakers-stage is blue canopy on the right, the commie-agitators on the left – and just a few police standing between the WHISTLES, the Commies and the stage.]

The ruse …. as long as passersby can move through the sidewalk …. passing their noxious gauntlet, the Soc/Commie/Lefties DEMAND the right to STAND there. (and not quietly) Contrary to what we have been told in the past by the NYPD: keep moving, not standing, has been the rule-of-law …. til now.”


Flash forward- July 22, 2017. Walk the streets. Blow the whistles. Use the same tactics and loyal American citizens will be pressured, “guilted”, to STOP. When it comes to protest rules-of-engagement, the police predictably urge us to go away, to “PLEASE keep things peaceful.

Regarding the two assaults. AFTER Muslim THUGS assaulted JDL members carrying the Israeli flags. The thugs walked. Disappeared in the crowd … til the next assault.

Slide Show screen shots of assaults:

Thugs #1 and #3 A

Unfortunately, controlling Muslim violence in the U.K. is going ‘bad to worse’, so the NYPD aims to keep the Times Square thugs placated.

EXCLUSIVE: Police lose control as “Palestinian” demonstrators menace supporters of Israel in London” (Pamela Geller)

BUT WHO is doing the controlling? The police or the THUGS?

BTW- Some of the NYPD officers still wear the black-band of mourning on their badges (in memoriam for assassinated  NYPD Officer Miosotis Familia).

 The police are under attack.  Yet, they remain on-the street, working to keep-the-peace while protecting these Muslim/Commie thugs and bullies.

We are NOT the problem. The police know they have our support AND our respect, even when we disagree. Still, we were assaulted. Twice. By those peaceful Muslim ‘yutes’.

The first assault. The New JDL – NY was walking, legally, on a public sidewalk …. with two Israeli flags …. when 2 thugs flung themselves on the male JDL protestor. From behind. Knocked him down as they tried to rip the Israeli flag from his hands. [The usual method: One thug body-slams. Another rips flag from hands of the assaulted.]

BUT, our guy didn’t go down so easily. He was knocked to the sidewalk and then slammed into the wall. But, the thugs NEVER got the flag. AND …. they were not arrested. They walked. Instead the officers prevailed upon the JDL to please LEAVE the area. With the caveat that IF they appeared on our side (which they were doing already) IF they were causing a problem, the police would handle it.

IF? Their belligerence and willingness to pick a fight makes them uncontrollable. Yet, our mere presence was characterized as THE problem. We caused the assaults by legally walking back and forth with our flags.  Yet, one snippy officer insisted WE were an irritant CAUSING trouble. Not the Muslim thugs. So, LEAVE.

[The first assault is at approx. 1:30 in the video]

The SECOND assault came after more than one Muslim continued to stand behind us, on OUR side of the avenue, with their signs. chanting.  The two officers near us seemed uninterested in the Muslim interlopers. So the Muslims hung around. Waiting to strike. Which they did – eventually.

That second assault involved 4-5 – maybe more – Muslims (young and middle-aged) whose sole purpose was to engage – incite – by walking back and forth behind us while shouting Free, Free “Palestine”. Finally, one of our Israeli JDL flag-bearers turned towards the aggressors – holding her flag high. Immediately she was BODY-SLAMMED from behind by a “PEACEFUL” Muslim.

Her flag ripped from her hands – the thief ran down the sidewalk – but someone in our group caught him and returned the flag.

Finally, the police managed – with difficulty- to get the pack of Muslims back to their side of the avenue.

Assault #2 happened before the video starts.  I witnessed the assault – the body-slam and the Israeli flag ripped from her hands. The video begins just after the flag was re-captured.

This is a part of speech supporting “Palestine” and the al-Aqsa mosque protest by a 17 years old Muslima,  Hebh Jamal [“The function of freedom is to free someone else” – Toni Morrison]

“Salaam Aleikum. I want to just acknowledge that I understand how hard it is to ignore what is happening on the other side. (referring to the JDL protestors) These people are the ones who are taking our loved ones.  Taking things that are meaningful to us. Taking our country away from us.  So I get it.  But I want you guys right now ….  to understand my words … I want to remind you that this is not enough.  It is not enough to go to protests.  It is not enough to say #FreePalestine . We have to do more than that. [snip] Right here in this country, two senators are creating a bill (Senator Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer) are creating a bill that makes boycotting Israel illegal. Why are they trying so hard to stop us? The least we can do is advocate against this. Advocate against those who try to silence us. Why are they trying so hard to stop us? [snip]it is only over our dead bodies will we have freedom […] the least we can do is show ‘Palestinians’ that we stand in solidarity with them and the resistance” [chanting in Arabic]

And a complaint/suggestion found at their Face book site:

Fahmi Alasmar Abu Morad – “You should’ve planned it for Friday and have everyone pray Juma on Times Square in support of our brothers and sisters in Jerusalem”

HELLO, FAHMI. They prayed. 

They did the Zuhr prayer. No opportunity missed to raise their back-sides to the sky.

Remembering the obscene whistle blowing and shouting that the NYPD seemed unable to control on May 25th, I left ( briefly) to buy the LAST $5 whistle at Modells. I  hurried back. Whistle-ready.  ONE whistle was better than no whistle.

That ONE high-pitched whistle can carry across the avenue. Enough reactions from the Muslims made it apparent – THEY heard me. (Shushing me)

Unfortunately – so did the two officers standing with us. NOW the pressure was on to please ‘Give it a rest‘.   I responded, “I support you guys, officer. But, I can do this (whistle).  I know ’cause at our protest, they were allowed to use multiple whistles. Standing on top of our speakers.” He was not happy. GUILTING me as he walked away with “Thank you for your co-operation”.

It worked. A few more long winded blasts and I caved. Something the Left NEVER does.

The JDL counter-protest stayed on until the Muslim al-Aqsa protest marched east on 42nd St . Maybe to Bryant Park for their late afternoon prayers.

Of course, NOT a WORD was spoken about the murders  of the Jewish family in Israel.  If you dare to ask, “What about…” , all you get is “The IDF murders” innocent Muslims”.

The Salomon family had sat down for Friday night Shabbat dinner in their home in Halamish. They had invited their friends to come later that evening for a celebration to mark the birth of a grandson when suddenly a Palestinian terrorist infiltrated their home, and stabbed Yosef, 70, and two of his children – Elad, 36 and Chaya, 46 – to death.

It took only 15 minutes from the moment the terrorist, Omar al-Abed (19) climbed over the fence around the settlement of Halamish to the moment he was killed by an off-duty soldier, IDF Spokesman Brig.-Gen. Ronen Manelis said on Saturday.

[snip] “What is different now is that there is more focus on religion, especially in the last few days, which we didn’t see before. Such a focus makes it more dangerous because it has more support in the Arab world,” he said.

There was a joyful Facebook UPDATE from Hebh Jamal  Palestinians celebrated the removal of Israeli security measures from the al-Aqsa compound after two weeks of protests.


Hebh Jamal
is 17 yrs old and credits her TEACHERS for helping her find her voice. Her activism.

When people critic [sic] the Palestinian resistance by placing the concern of violence at the forefront, it ignores the issues that create the violence. We want self determination and freedom from a terrorist state. Interestingly, Nelson Mandela although was described as the most important peace advocate in history …. was kept on the US terrorist list until 2008…. Our plight is minimized , and as Angela Davis put it, ” let the Palestinian people employ their own methods they deem most likely to succeed in their struggle.”

[snip] you can link the hyper militarization of both the US and Israel to the rise of violence in Palestine, and the rise in tragedies that occur. Israeli police have been involved in training US police. Our struggles are unfortunately tied. When you challenge one, you’re subsequently challenging the other.

Sami Disu There are surveys of the American population which show that most think there is a higher fatality of Israelis than Palestinians. With that basic lack of knowledge, it may not even be useful to get into certain discussions on the issue over here.

BUT, then there’s FACT vs their Fiction.

What Status Quo:

July 25, 2017 : The so-called “status quo” on the Temple Mount is dead. It was killed by Palestinian denial of Jewish connection not only to the Mount but to any part of the Land of Israel, by terrorists who may have been aided and abetted by the Waqf, and by Abbas’s diplomatic assaults on Jewish history and legitimacy in Jerusalem.

And last week, Palestinian terrorists smuggled machine guns onto the Temple Mount and attacked police guarding its gates, killing two Israeli officers. The terrorists launched their attack from within the Temple Mount and then fled into the shrines on the Mount.

The Metal Detectors of Islam:  (Regarding)…. the metal detectors (and surveillance cameras) that (were) installed last week at the entrances to the Temple Mount/Haram ash-Sharif.

The episode has raised the question of just what constitutes legitimate security measures at Islamic holy shrines and iconic mosques. We live in a time when the primary threat to the security of these sites arises from Muslims themselves—notably, extremists bent on using them as launching pads for violent acts designed to destabilize and terrorize. Across the Muslim world, governments are acutely aware of the vulnerabilities of these sites, and have taken measures to secure them. In particular, they have resorted to a very commonplace technology: metal detectors. At this link, I provide some prime examples, from Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Syria, and the United Arab Emirates.

How do these states differ from Israel? They are effective and sole sovereigns over the holy shrines and major mosques in their territory. Israel apparently is not. “The Metal Detectors of Islam,here, for a quick trip to Islam’s bucket list of top sites.”

Peace – Humanity – SOME ARE JUST MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS.

al-Quds Day LIES Returned to Times Square 2017

al-Quds Day, June 23, 2017. The anti-Israel LIES and agitprop returned to Times Square. Again.

Every year. Same ol’, Same ol’. (Rinse. Repeat)

Commies and their anti-Israel chums (Muslims and the Neturei Karta) gathered on Seventh avenue to proclaim – LOUDLY- that the Holy Land. Israel. Jerusalem (al-Quds). The Temple Mount (al Aqsa mosque). The City of David. ALL are the ‘ancestral’ property of those “Palestinain”  pretenders from Jordan (“victims’ of the Jews).

The Big LIE, claiming to be “Palestinians”. You name it. They  claim it. “From the River to the Sea”.

In Arabic, Jerusalem is known as al-Quds :  “The Holy” or “The Holy Sanctuary”.


al-
Quds Day (Jerusalem Day; Quds is Arabic for Jerusalem), an annual event held on the last Friday of Ramadan …. initiated by the Islamic Republic of Iran in 1979 to express support for the Palestinians and oppose Zionism and Israel,[1] as well as Israel’s “occupation” of Jerusalem and Jewish settlements in Israeli- occupied territories[2][3]. Nominally, it exists in opposition to the Jerusalem Day (Yom Yerushalayim) celebration instituted by Israel in May 1968.” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quds_Day]

The videos begin with al-Quds Day chants and pep-talk speeches (of course).

 The usual anti-Israel, anti-Zionist LIES made by the delusional Neturei Karta were countered vociferously by the The New Jewish Defence League NYC.

The New JDL-NY counter-protest had legs, determined to confront the LIES, still — even the truth confused some and irritated others.

But, the JDL-NY  had a permit so their counter-protest was not buried blocks away. The Commies got Alinskied! (Right back ‘atcha)

 The al-Quds Commies displayed “outrage” as they shouted (screamed) their Fakestinian agitprop across 42nd and 7th.

Lead by the usual culprits: Ramsey Clark’s IAC (International Action Center Commies) and WWP ( Workers World Party), Sara Flounders .

Also from IAC and WWP (Workers World Party),  Larry Holmes .

Veteran Communist organizers ran the ‘show’ along with Cyrus McGoldrick (once head of NY-CAIR) ….

Most of the speakers SCREAMED their message of HATE , except for Sara Flounders. She spewed just as much hatred for Israel and America, but in an oddly quiet-tone. Either way, it’s still HATE. “It is Right To Rebel- Israel Go To Hell” (at approx 1:35) But, TODAY, they did not “OWN the streets”, just their hatred.

As the JDL- NY counter-protest continued, walking back and forth, with the JDL and Israeli flags, sullen was added to the Communist demeanor.

Now the al-Quds protest-leaders slipped profanity into their pro-forma, anti-Zionist, anti America diatribes. They were not happy.

Even the always confident Cyrus McGoldrick seemed to grow weary of the JDL-NY commotion.

The JDL-NY contingent, like gnats on a hot summer-night, were annoying but legal.

…. just keep walking …

So the Israeli, American, Trump in 2020 and JDL flags strolled back and forth.
Including an “al-Quds is HATE” sign.
 
The whistles. The rams horn. The acoustic megaphones. The jeering back at the speakers. It all worked. But, next time, I’d recommend MORE WHISTLES (maybe more cowbell!)

The JDL-NY counter-protest was unrelenting. Countering the LIES. A new day was dawning.

 The NK – holding HORRID Nazi signs – were confronted by passersby, the JDL and a guy in a truck draped with Israeli flags.

He stopped his truck right beside the Neturei Karta, shouting at them in Hebrew.

Then, he drove SLOWLY down 7th. Next to the protest pens.

Yelling at the protestors, they yelled back and threw signs, as well as other small detritus at his truck. [caught this action in the video at about 1:38] All while NYC Students for Justice in Palestine organizer, Nerdeen Kiswani,was screaming hatred from the stage.

Soon after, very soon, the the police closed that traffic lane next to the barricades. No way would he, or anyone else, make a second pass.


  Seems the war-of-flags and banners led to an arrest on the Left.  No matter. Lefties LOOOVE anything that gets them more attention. Especially arrests.

The arrestee was activist Nick Maniace of Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network. The Maniace arrest in picture below includes two of his co-horts, the woman in the  green hajab and Sara Flounders of International Action Center

Arrest Report from Samidoun : NYPD illegally arrests Samidoun organizer at al-Quds Day rally in Times Square


Nick’s arrest took place midway through Joe Catron’s speech for the Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network.  A small team of demonstrators engaged in jail support arrived with Nick to the al-Quds Day Iftar organized by NYC Students for Justice in Palestine after the demonstration, meeting with cheers and strong solidarity and support.

Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network
denounces the unjust and illegitimate arrest by the NYPD of Nick Maniace.


Such attacks are in no way surprising from a police department engaged in daily terror against Black people and other oppressed communities. This incident reflects ongoing NYPD support for Zionism and racism and the framework of repression and surveillance targeting the Palestine movement and Arab and Muslim organizing and community existence.

We urge full support for Nick Maniace at his scheduled court date on 28 August and, most importantly, continued and intensified organizing, protest and action against racism, Zionism, imperialism and colonialism, from NYPD repression on the streets of New York to Zionist settler colonialism in occupied Palestine.

In my own words, as I watched Sara Flounders argue against the arrest and JDL-NY’s permit.

JDL-NY  had a PERMIT, not a sound permit, but an NYPD permit allowing them to protest across from the al-Quds protest; challenging the al-Quds lies, relentlessly. This annoyed dedicated Ramsey Clarke Commie, Sara Flounders. So she confronted an NYPD captain.

I over heard Sara arguing with the Capt. “Why was the JDL allowed to be so close to their protest?” (shouting – WHISTLING)

She waved her permit form. The Captain responded, “They (JDL-NY) have a permit, too.”  Sara (shocked) “THEY have a permit?” (Capt) YES! ( Sara) flustered. annoyed. Jammed her cell phone to her ear – making a call (to someone) They do this a lot when manipulating the police. BUT- heh- nothing worked!

The Captain waved her away. Crossed back to the al-Quds pen, on the east side of Seventh Ave, telling an officer to get her out of the street. She was blocking traffic. (sweet)

As for that ARREST, remember: Commies LOVE to be arrested : victimology 101.

More on the arrest in a comment from the “belly-ache” of the beast:

While we’re on “Fact or Fiction” reportage- found an odd reference while  searching Google for “Israel”.  WHAT pray tell is THIS?  Google- protesting history?

“DEPRECATION ANNOUNCED” from Google?

Definition: of Deprecated- a recommendation against using it “to express disapproval”


Perhaps the sponsors dedicated to spewing these FREE al -Quds LIES, might also work for GOOGLE. (friends in ‘high’ places?)

The list of  sponsors for al Quds

Names and organizations: Students for Justice in Palestine organizer Nerdeen Kiswani. Speakers included Kiswani of NYC SJP, Joe Catron of Samidoun, Sara Flounders of the International Action Center, Bernadette Ellorin and Mike Legaspi of BAYAN USA, longtime activist Esperanza Martel, Richard Kossally of Peoples’ Power Assembly, Mike Bento of NYC Shut it Down, Syed Istafa Naqvi of the Islamic Association of North America, Shahid Comrade of the Pakistan USA Freedom Forum, Larry Holmes of the Workers World Party and Lawrence Hamm of the Peoples Organization for Progress, reflecting an alliance of social justice movements.
They do not relent. Neither should we. The TRUTH must be heard.  No matter what the Commies and Muslim “fakestinians’ claim, these inconvenient (and IGNORED) FACTS remain what they are : FACT- NOT LIES!

“… there are no records to support the Palestinian narrative. In history, art and literature there is no trace at all of any Muslim people referred to by anybody as “Palestinians.”

Records show that it was 19th and 20th century Jewish settlement and the resulting employment opportunities that drew successive waves of Arab immigrants to Palestine. “The Arab population shows a remarkable increase ….. partly due to the import of Jewish capital into Palestine and other factors associated with the growth of the [Jewish] National Home..” (The Peel Commission Report – 1937)

“..in the Jewish settlement Rishon l’Tsion founded in 1882, by the year 1889, the forty Jewish families settled there, had attracted more than four hundred Arab families…. Many other Arab villages had sprouted in the same fashion.” (Joan Peters – From Time Immemorial p. 252 – referenced further as: FTI)

British PM Winston Churchill said in 1939: “.. far from being persecuted, the Arabs have crowded into the country [Palestine]..”

Before the Six Day War in 1967, when Jordan controlled the West Bank and Egypt ruled in Gaza, there was never any suggestion on the part of the “Palestinians” that they wanted independence in their ancestral homeland. The reason was that the “Palestinian” nation hadn’t been invented yet.

In fact, before the State of Israel was born, the term “Palestinians” was used by the Jews to refer to themselves and their organizations. “The Palestine Post”, the Palestine Foundation Fund, Palestine Airways, and the Palestine Symphony Orchestra were all purely Jewish enterprises.

We first hear of Arabs referred to as “Palestinians” when Egypt’s President Nasser, with help from the Russian KGB, established the “Palestine Liberation Organization” in 1964. It was only during the 1970s that the newly minted “Palestinians” began to promote their narrative through murder and assassination. The Arabs have justified their attacks as acts of the indigenous people struggling for national liberation.[snip]

The claim that “Palestinians” are the indigenous people of Israel and that most of the present Palestinian Arabs have lived in these lands since time immemorial is a total fraud. “

#NoMuslimBanEver Union Sq – speakers’ agitprop, Part 3

June 29, 2017, Union Square – Part 3 continues with the rest of the “speakers-of-agitprop”. [Follow links for Part One ; Part Two]

All came prepared to mobilize against the partial Trump Travel Ban.

“… horrified by the president us (ing) the argument that this is a victory for the national security […]the fact that the Supreme Court is even considering taking the case is “incredibly disappointing” […] the confusion surrounding what a “bona fide relationship is” [ …]  nobody knows exactly what that means.”  The Observer:

This final post is excerpted speeches and, later, a look at the “wild side” when they got to 18th street –  32BJ SEIU HQ – and met up with #BacktheBan protestors.

To begin, Murad Awawdeh , NYIC’s Director of Political Engagement, led the crowd in practice chants “We Exist, We RESIST”,  finishing with a pep talk, “YOU are important. As soon as info comes out use  Social media . Text!”

First speaker was Afaf Nasher, Exec. Dir. of CAIR – NY. “Our values are loud and clear to the four corners of the globe. We are here to reaffirm what America really stands for. To reaffirm what America really LOOKS like. To really affirm the United States of America.

Three speakers followed: Rev. Chloe Breyer, Exec Dir Interfaith Center: “… representing so many Faith TRADITIONS that make this city great. It is our DIVERSITY that is our strength.” ; a Yemini American Muslima, “(has family living in Yemin).  “A country representing Yemin, facing one of the worst humanitarian crises of our times.“and Y. Mendez, an organizer from Make The Road NY. “Here to make sure the current administration knows, to remind the United States is a country of immigrants, we are here to stay regardless of how the administration wants to affect us.

The final speakers : a staff attorney from CUNY Clear . “We don’t know how this is going to play out. We need to be organizing. Thank you for being here.” And Rama Issa, Exec Dir of the Arab. Amer. Assoc. NY. “Family is family. We are very community oriented. Keep us in yur prayers. Hoping Supreme Court will see eye to eye with us in October.

Once at  32BJ SEIU HQ, the #NoMuslimBanEver protestors passionately lobbed chants and rants at the “offending” #BACKTHEBAN protestors. One  smarmy fellow danced to, “New York is an immigrant Town. What’s Up. Get Down.”

Wrapping up the protest was one very loud and long-winded “NoBanEver heckler., “Unity. Syrians are Human Beings. They’re FULL human beings. Immigrants are FULL humnanbeings. MUSLIMS are FULL Human Beings.” followed by lots of “Keep them out.” “Back the Ban.” and “Shame on you.

After the Town Hall Meeting – Training session, they headed for JFK where they fought back against the Travel Ban by offering, at the Mayor’s behest, FREE legal aide.

 


MAYOR de Blasio – working AGAINST  American Security

Bitta Mostofi, assistant commissioner for the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs […] her agency has held more than 300 Know Your Rights forums to inform those lacking proper paperwork of their legal protections. It also coordinates with other members of Cities for Action, a coalition of nearly 100 mayors and municipalities that favor a liberalized immigration policy and oppose deportation.

…. resistance, in the city’s view, could be everything from defending someone who is being “talked down to or discriminated against” in the subway or protesting at John F. Kennedy Airport after the first Muslim travel ban was initiated ….

“…. what the mayor has declared from the onset with this onslaught of threats and fear towards our community is that we would resist and continue to resist and stand side by side with all New Yorkers,”

In the Hearts and Minds of all determined Progs, AND Mayor de Blasio, NY remains a SANCTUARY CITY – welcoming ALL Muslims. INTERFAITH-Bridges, that’s the ticket-to-peace.

Speaking in the outdoor area of the airport’s Blue Lot — where they held a Jummah prayer and interfaith action in the wake of the ban — Murad Awawdeh, the New York Immigration Coalition’s director of political engagement, said that the “bona fide relationship” designation has only served to create more “uncertainty” for people “who are the most vulnerable across the world.”

The New York Immigration Coalition and Make the Road New York hosted the “Support all things Islam” presser at JFK. In sync with the Mayors office, at all times.

Also, thanks to Mayor”Red Bill’s” heavy-handed Muslim outreach,  Summer in the City now includes IFTAR-s (PLURAL) Rama Issa (-Ibrahim)

The “Iftar in the City” dinner—breaking the fast Muslims observe during the daytime through the holy month—took place in Columbus Park near Brooklyn Borough Hall. The New York City Commission on Human Rights, the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs, the Mayor’s Community Affairs Unit and Mayor’s Center for Faith and Community Partnership host the event.

…. its second annual outdoor interfaith Ramadan celebration on Friday night, Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration vowed to shield Muslim New Yorkers from Islamophobic abuse and President Donald Trump’s aggressive immigration enforcement agenda—and stressed their commitment to uniting people of all faiths in opposition to discrimination.

This year’s theme was “resistance,” according to Rama Ibrahim Issa, executive director of the Arab American Association of New York, who emceed the event.

“We’re here to resist—to resist negativity and come together in unity and love, to break bread together in this amazing tradition that is iftar,” Issa said, to roaring applause from the hundreds-strong crowd.

At this rate, New Yorkers might need to practice that warm Muslim greeting,  As-salam Alaykum. Will we have a choice?

This fellow happened to roll by to the litany of,
Shame on you. Shame on you. Shame on you.

Milo Yiannopoulos Free Speech Press Rally Outside Simon & Schuster NY HQ

Milo Yiannopoulos’ “Free Speech Rally” was scheduled outside Simon & Schuster for 10:30 am., so I arrived at about 10:05. Unfortunately, by 10:15 or s0,  the RAINS CAME! ( a two hour MONSOON!)

The presser did not begin until after Noon. Meanwhile, press and the crowd waited patiently; VERY patiently (and VERY WET).

Most everyone hung-in there, INSIDE Simon and Schuster and OUT.

For more RAIN “fun” see  Flickr slide show:

DSC_5983

 We finally saw Milo a bit after Noon;  he arrived amidst a light but steady misting. (the TWO HOUR monsoon was finally over) Greeted by an enthusiastic crowd, Milo proceeded to the announcement of his lawsuit.

Milo filed a $10 million suit against Simon & Schuster for “willful and opportunistic breach of its contract” to publish his book “Dangerous.”

He also answered questions before he leading the eager group of fans and press on the ten block walk to CNN.  see  LINK

VIDEO of presser:

“DANGEROUS was #1 on Amazon based on pre-orders before Simon & Schuster canceled the book. It was the most anticipated book in decades, but they terminated MILO’s contract and canceled the book under intense pressure from leftists intent on shutting down free speech.”

“The Chicago Review of Books announced a boycott of Simon & Schuster following the announcement of DANGEROUS. 160 Simon & Schuster children’s book authors wrote a letter of complaint about MILO to the CEO of the company. Can you imagine how many cats those 160 SJWs own? Simon & Schuster folded, so now MILO is publishing his masterpiece on his own!

“Now it is time for lovers of free speech to strike back. Since Milo’s book comes out on July 4th, it is the perfect week to hold a free speech rally outside of Simon & Schuster headquarters in New York City. Milo will deliver a speech to the crowd, and it will be a giant spectacle — like every MILO event.”

“Simon & Schuster made a terrible mistake by canceling DANGEROUS, now let’s remind them just how badly they screwed up! Together, MILO and his amazing fans will make 7/7 a date that reminds the world that MILO will never allow himself to be censored!”

AND, in case you missed the “Pahty of all Pahties” on July 6Laura Loomer posted the Jihadi “strippers” on periscope


More from the NY Post on Milo’s Wild Book Party, including a 15 minute you tube clip, inside the “PAHTY” , as MILO took stage.

In conclusion, as “MILO’s Billboards Take Over Times Square, the spirit of Milo’s presser marches on : “DANGEROUS” is available now, published by Dangerous Books. https://tinyurl.com/ybs7wpl3

“We Will Not Be Banned: The Broken Promise of Equal Justice” Hosted by CAIR-New York

July 4, 2017 – NOON- Fifth Floor Atrium-  #TakeTrumpTower

“We Will Not Be Banned: The broken promise of equal justice” Hosted by CAIR-New York

“CAIR is America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.”

Speakers and partners included NY Day of Remembrance Committee, Jewish social justice contingent (Jews for Racial and Economic Justice, Jews Say No!, Jewish Voice for Peace) NY Civil Liberties Union, LatinoJustice, and T’ruah.

On July 4th, 2017 (Noon)  CAIR-NY sponsored a presser; a Muslim-led teach-in and rally in the Fifth Floor Atrium- a public space – in what they described as the “hideous” Trump Tower. (though later they chanted “Whose tower, OUR Tower”)

They claim, the purpose of the presser was to highlight how the United States has repeatedly broken her founding promises and (they claim) targeted groups on the basis of race, religion, or ideology.

The speakers insisted their communities have historically been targeted – from the U.S.’s internment of Americans of Japanese descent, to U.S.’s treatment of Puerto Rico, to President Trump’s Muslim Ban. So, CAIR-NY and their (social justice) partners used this day to reaffirm their commitment to that most “basic American tenet, “ALL are created equal“.

America’s 241st Independence Day, was marred by these protestors who claimed that President Trump stands in a long line of American leaders who sought political power by marginalizing and demonizing minority groups.

AS NOON approached, I arrived – looking for protestors.

11:55 I see barricades but no protestors; just empty pens. Odd. Then I saw ONE – no two – women in front of the doors to the tower.

That, too, was odd; verboten, actually, since a previous Trump Tower protest (on Aug 31, 2016) that BLOCKED entry to the Tower created more crowd control at the entrance.

Guess things have relaxed with time. And THEN I remembered, there is a Fifth Floor Public Space in the Tower.

” … part of an agreement Trump made in the 1970s […] an agreement in which a developer receives special permissions from the city in exchange for the inclusion … of spaces open to the general public.

The Lefties have protested there previously, testing the “public space right-to-assemble.”  SO, once I actually READ the sign the women were holding,   DIRECTIONS to the Fifth Floor Presser, I headed inside.

Went through security, bags, camera screened. Rode the elevator to the Fifth Floor with the Fox5 cameraman AND the very friendly, Albert Fox Cahn, CAIR–NY’s Legal Director! Then,  VOILA – the atrium …

The protestors have gathered here for CAIR’s Independence Day Presser.

Familiar faces, too, like Donna Nevel (Jewish Voice For Peace).

Labor Union Rabbi Michael Feinberg (Interfaith Worker Justice) .

Soon, Nevel and Feinberg put out warnings on ME to CAIR’s Mr. Albert Cahn, who seemed to regret his cheery greeting in the elevator. NERVOUS I guess, cause I –  the ENEMY- was in his – CAIR’s – very sacred – PUBLIC – space.

Now, he asked me who was I with. What media. And another person wanted to know if I was a volunteer. Really? Come on, guys, first thing I signed-in as media. ALL are WELCOME here, right?

All proceeded normally, so it seemed, with cameras in place; waiting for the speakers. (2 pictures David Moriya )

Video: Then the MC made his welcoming speech. All was calm.

However, as soon as the first refugee speaker (Poor William) began (all would be refugee/emigres sharing their stories) the JDL counter-protest began, too.

Turning ALL of their Alinsky-tactics back at them, the JDL caused palpitations amongst the Lefties who “discreetly” scrambled with their signs and banners to cover up the very mobile  JDL flag and a Blue Line Flag.

The first actual speaker was “Poor William from Iran”. He spoke calmly and succinctly about why he fled Iran (he’s Jewish) and his uncertain status in the U.S.  While  in the back ground, the JDL flag was very busy.

The Blue Line Flag stayed put in one corner, not easy to see, but that did not deter the Lefties. They seemed MORE upset by this flag. (So much for grateful patriotism.) Of of course – President TRUMP.

I stayed. Covered all the speakers. And SO DID THE JDL. They stayed,too. Heard later that the CAIR hosts asked the police to remove the “INTERLOPERS”. But, this was met with a  firm, NO. Public Space. (Right Back atcha, CAIR!) Which then accounts for the nice little speech the MC made mid-presser.

“Let’s keep our eyes up here- at the podium. Ignore the  protestors. They have a right to be here. This is America. but, let’s focus on why we are here.”

Leaving the atrium, I was surprised to see educator, Debbie Almontaser.

Currently, Dr. Almontaser sits on Public Advocate Tish JamesJewish, Muslim, and Sikh Task Force to Combat Hate. Almontaser’s first step when leading a session she creates a community agreement about how to interact during the session. For example:

Approach others with respect
Withhold judgment
Don’t make identity-based assumptions
“Listen to learn”; use “generous listening”
Accept differences
Be aware of privilege and intersectionality
Assume good intentions
Don’t take it personally if someone says you’ve said something offensive

Debbie (Almontaser) was having fun sharing some very animated selfies.

And Patriots who had been in the back were now at the exit, continuing to speak their minds in SUPPORT of Pres. Trump.

As the CAIR Lefties tried to leave – smug with success – they had to walk through the WE WON, YOU LOST Patriots! Again.  (fun.)

These malcontents who masquerade as patriots, these traitors, who have snookered people like Poor William from Iran; conning them into working with organizations like CAIR (organizations that are committed to deconstructing our government,  America) They do not intend to fade away.

But, WE have met their challenge.

We will not be Silent. We TOO have NOT forgotten. WE WON. YOU LOST.

BUT- all was not over.  As I walked to the subway, about two dozen protesters marched passed me to to Tower’s entrance on Fifth Avenue, yelling anti-fascist chants.

Perhaps  now,  THIS was :

…. til NEXT TIME….
