UPDATE (7-9-10) Added second video (please scroll down)
In support of the State of Arizona, Patriots from NY-Ice, held a counter-rally at 46th street and Park Avenue in Manhattan.
The progressive-leftist-soc-commies and their ubiquitous unions (like SEIU) ….
…as well as the new ACORN ( NY Communities for Change). All they did was CHANGE their name….
These Leftists held their anti-American rally in front of the Major League Baseball Headquarters (46th st and Park Ave)
And listened to speeches from the predictable leftist politicians like Workers Party (ne: Marxist) Comptroller, John Liu (note his SEIU- PURPLE tie…)
And the “never found a rent controlled apartment he couldn’t have” Charlie Rangle:
In Part 1 (video) caught some film of two of their agitator- loons and heard words of support for Arizona and their Governor from Joanna Marzullo , President of NY-Ice
The lefties sent two of their loons out to grab the attention of the press…like they need to ‘get ‘ their attention. They even had SEIU handlers to wrangle them…
Part 2 (video) Excerpts of some familiar politicians , like John (Workers Family Party) Liu, NYC Comptroller, and the very ethically challenged (and FORMER House Ways and Means Chairman) Charlie Rangel. Their speeches of “out-rage” were the same old propaganda and ” Lie, Lies and More Lies.”
On a positive note,the new legislation, SB 1070 is due to go into effect on July 29. The State of Arizona intends to enforce Federal Immigration Law. Doing the Job the Feds refuse to do!

If Americans don’t wake up soon, this country is going to end up The United Socialist States of America. The socialist movement is slowly creeping in and the idiots aligning with them don’t see who they’re chumming up to. What a stupid country we have become. Between the gullible ones and the ones that don’t want to get involved because it is not affecting them, this country is going to be lost to socialism. Remember how Castro did it….he didn’t declare himself a socialist right away. First, he used the support of those who were fed up with Batista, then when he felt secure enough in charge, he dropped the bomb. At that point, it was too late. Take a trip to Cuba if you think communism has been good for that country. That’s just a precursor to what you will see here if people don’t start demanding from our government that they take action against this element.
Funny, in one photo, there is two young boys decked out in NY Yankees shirts. In another, the one with the guy in a dress(what was that)you see two more of the loons decked out in NY Mets shirts. I thought they were protesting Major League baseball? They sound confused.
Hope I don’t sound ignorant, but that big flag that Dave was holding, what is it?
These lowlife politicians care about one thing only, future votes. That is all they see from these illegals, they could give a damn less about them, it is self preservation only, and nothing else. They are despicable.
firster555, the larger flag is the flag for the state of Arizona. The smaller flag below it is the Gadsden flag. I copied this from Wikipedia:
The Gadsden flag is a historical American flag with a yellow field depicting a rattlesnake coiled and ready to strike.The use of the timber rattlesnake as a symbol of the American colonies can be traced back to the publications of Benjamin Franklin. In 1751, he made the first reference to the rattlesnake in a satirical commentary published in his Pennsylvania Gazette. It had been the policy of Britain to send convicted criminals to America, so Franklin suggested that they thank the British by sending rattlesnakes to England.
As the American Revolution grew, the snake began to see more use as a symbol of the colonies. In 1774, Paul Revere added it to the title of his paper, the Massachusetts Spy, as a snake joined to fight a British dragon. In December 1775, Benjamin Franklin published an essay in the Pennsylvania Journal under the pseudonym American Guesser in which he suggested that the rattlesnake was a good symbol for the American spirit.
Thanks Daisy. I knew the Gadsden flag, thanks for all the detailed history. Was not sure about the Arizona State flag though, I should have figured that out.
