I begin the “Crush Trump” Protest, organized by the Cosmopolitan Antifascists, with a report on the NY-ICE counter protest. There will be more posts of the soc/commie/anarchists, pictures and some video.
Noon. Columbus Circle. March 19, 2016
I arrived at about 11:30. The gathering of the anti-Trump brigades was slow. This one-man flag waver for Socialism was leading the way…alone….it was so slow starting that, for quite awhile, the press outnumbered the protestors. This was looking to be a slow day for a protest.Though things did pick up once they all crossed Central Park West to the park entrance. There was even OPEN Borders banner blocking the street. More and more of the Bernie-fied anti-Fa’s finally trickled in. GREEN seemed to be the color of the day, as well as yellow arm bands for the avowed socialists. But, green? Left over from St. Paddy’s Day?? I’m not up on what that signifies (if anything). [Update:ANTI-Fascists “GO GREEN”]NY-ICE – (New Yorkers for Immigration Control) “Saying NO to open Borders. Build the Wall” was also there. The press was interested in statements from NY-ICE and THAT made the already angry anarchists even more bilious.
“More and more, people who show their support to Donald Trump are intimidated,” said one among them, Jim MacDonald, of NY-ICE.
“We are here to show that it is still America for the time being … we have a right to free speech,” he added.
“As frightening as this is, we are going to show that we have the right to show our support to Donald Trump whether it pleases the other side or not.”
The flickr slide show below focuses on NY-ICE and a couple of the soc/commie infiltrators who attempted to end the interviews by stepping in to the discussions (like this red-hatted, “peace-loving” woman) Her ploy didn’t seem to work as well as it has in the past. [And she left quickly once she was asked to explain why she supported socialism vs free-market capitalism]

SO …. the next approach to end the press interviews was to “scream, curse, and chant-sing” the press into a submission (of sorts) That too didn’t work. For once the press hung in there, as did NY-ICE (they always do)
VIDEO- NY ICE Patriots quietly countering the hatred spewing from the mouths of the vile soc/commie/anarchists. “F#*k Trump” was the chant of the day.
This clip is longer than I usually post, she ranted for 15 minutes or more [repetition is part of the art of chaos] I edited as best I could, without losing some of the main-points of the opposition to Trump etc.
STARTING at [3:33-6:18] there was a spirited exchange regarding Zionism, Jews, Ben Carson, Israel (apartheid & Walls) and Russia (a FINE example of NO walls) and continues at [7:01-7:38] The protestor was seemingly OKAY with Russia having Borders and Border patrols (go figure)
And there was very open support for BERNIE. NOT Hillary (no surprise)
Obnoxious chants were led by the particularly obscene “Spit-Queen”- her intentional spittle flew at 2:12 – aimed at NY-ICE. Yet she continued to preach that she was all about Love. TRUMP was Hate. They were LOVE.
Side Note: The spit-queen has a history of spitting as a tool-of-protest. And she ALWAYS screams and curses like a sailor!
VIDEO – NY ICE and some of their interaction with the press. I was able to catch brief interview quotes from the NY-ICE Patriots, particularly NY-ICE member, Jim, who was being interviewed starting at 1:57.
The Commie-handlers always walk the perimeter of the protests. I happened to spot Andy Pollack, who loves to bully and threaten the opposition. But, today, he seemed to be on quiet-patrol. Once Pollack had observed NY-ICE a few times is when the spit-queen took her position down-front – next to the NY-ICE press interviews- No accident. For sure.
I am guessing the police let a lot slide earlier while I was observing at the park entrance. They usually make groups like NY-ICE stand away from the protestors. Not sure that mixing was all that much fun, annoying, but the police (watching and waiting) were saving their energy for the MARCH. (I guess) NEXT will be my pics etc as I look at the Wild Side. Reports came out later (after I left around 2 pm) that the March to Trump Tower, just a couple of blocks East, is when the anarchists and loons finally took to the streets. Chaos, NOT LOVE, is their goal. (Always.) Challenging Law and Order. (I understand there were some arrests and pepper spraying)
