March 19, 2016. Columbus Circle.
“Crush Trump!” (Part 2)
[Part 1 from “Crush Trump” is HERE] A day of “snark and hubris”.
(You’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all)
But repetition breeds complacency, so bring it on.The “Dump/Crush Trump” protestS. Redux. Rolls-on. Ad nauseum.
April 2, 2016, “democracy” SPRING, will be launched.
These same players (and maybe the 5000 no-show anarchists)will spread their chaos in-the-streets nation-wide. However, on March 19, the mischief-makers gathered slowly, VERY slowly, never reaching the trumpeted throng of 5,000.
YET, “LOVE” was in- the-air.High Noon. Start time. The press, lingering, wondering, where’s the 5000 who were on-call to fight FASCISM?The student-majority, mostly a happy “throng”; laughing, singing, drumming …. and chanting… lined-up with a banner and a few pithy signs.
SLIDE SHOW of pictures (to access place cursor on picture)
Noon was looking a tad disappointing. The lethargic press (looking for ANYTHING to cover) came alive with the beat of the drums. Hoping for the perfect photo to take back to the boss.
But, a slow trickle was too calm and love just doesn’t “do it”.
What does the media really HOPE for? The fake ‘aggressive’ Trump protestors ‘assaulting’ those “calm” anti-trump protestors, of course. (Insurgent plants make a much better story)
Wisconsin: “You touched my chest” – the faked uproar from the ‘victim’ (Alex Drake) and perhaps – the intentional pepper spray. Watched many videos and the guy in red hat slyly positions himself, just before the punch. (Me-thinks he KNEW it was coming) It was ALL too well planned (rehearsed) yet that gets played over and over…as though it were spontaneous. (It sells)
NOT this meek little gathering. The banner unfurled. The ubiquitous drum, drum, drumming filling the air. The press was looking at a short day.
Some Commie-handlers were observed – walking back and forth from the park- entrance to the circle protestors… hovering in the background…
This usually means they are co-ordinating something. Waiting. Watching (it turned out) for the missing hoards. And then … it was time….
Some of the missing protestors (still not 5,000) had finally marched over from Fifth Avenue.
It was TIME for the mini- ‘PARADE” to make the short-hop across Central Park West.
Obediently they marched with signs and banners across CPW to the Central Park entrance. [and the press went “wild”] Pressing, pushing through the small crowd. Once again, HOPING for that perfect picture.
In the Park: We now had a crowd, thick with press, and protestors.
And colors. Lots of colors. Green (Anti-fas).
With the usual Black (BIG A-anarchists)
and BLM (Black Lives Matter) sentiments, scattered throughout the protest.
A fairly solid example of an everyday college campus.
Barking profane chants and carrying hand made signs that went from childish sex jokes to racist cracks to … “LOVE”….
THEY kept telling us THEY own the franchise on LOVE. (observe, please, the Spit-Queen of Love)
Slideshow of pictures (to access place cursor on picture)
There were speakers (using a small megaphone) with the “students” packed hard against the ‘staging area’. This always makes the crowd look bigger and is good for photo-ops.
Muslim-speakers were there. Linda Sarsour, in particular, who has long been in-training to be Brooklyn Burrough President (it’s on her bucket-list)
She was joined by more distaff speakers, 20-somethings, who wore “american” flag-type hijabs. [one female, who spoke, wore a BLACK-starred flag]
Once the protest began it’s march back to the Fifth Avenue Trump Towers, I spotted a dancing Pinocchio-nosed Trump (with snarky signs)
And more smack-down Fascism signs.Immigration banners on the fountain steps. (they also stretched one across CPW) Illegal Immigrants, SI! But, No Walls. No way. Throughout my two hours (before they marched east to Fifth Avenue) nothing NEW seemed to happen. But, still— not great— when you see the press (particularly the foreign press) so eager to see America fall apart.
French. German. Spanish. Saw them all interviewing the pro-America “No OPEN Borders” counter-protestors. But, finding a pro- America report post protest- that’s a search that too often ends in vain. Sometimes you might find a one-line quote, here and there, supporting America. (maybe)
BUT, that is so NOT what this crowd was looking for. Chaos. Confusion. Revolution.
Another dose of anarchy – sadly – in Belgium -and these fools and tools in Columbus Circle are grinning (winning?)
G-d save us all from the do-gooders, anarchists and their Community Organizers.
One Final Thought. What, might you ask, are they PROTESTING?
What do the radicals claim to want? (Many of the main groups endorsing Democracy Spring are FUNDED by billionaire Soros and supported by groups like the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and as usual the AFL-CIO)
THIS GROUP complains that “American elections are dominated by billionaires and big money interests who can spend unlimited sums of money on political campaigns to protect their special interests at the general expense…The American people deserve free and fair elections, not billionaire auctions.”
So, if you are moved to join your fellow anarchists at Democracy Spring, for the 10 Day March, all you have to do is contact your friendly New York Community organizer.
From Philadelphia, Democracy Spring marchers are planning protest stops in Wilmington and Newark in Delaware; Perryville, Joppa, Baltimore, Elkridge, and Beltsville in Maryland ( 0n their way to D.C.) and then encamping in Columbus Circle at 11 AM Eastern on April 11: a day of National encampments….
100 people have confirmed that they will participate in the full march, with activists hailing from 33 states across country. Those protesters signed an option on the coalition’s website explicitly stating, “I pledge to be one among thousands who will risk arrest to save democracy in DC between April 11 – 16.”
And remember, (promising only 2,000 this time), they’ll be back at Columbus Circle, April 11, 2016 at 11:00 AM.
It only takes a FEW to create Chaos. Not thousands nor hundreds.
MARCH: APRIL 2-11, 2016
SIT IN: APRIL 11-18, 2016.
We have been warned.
From Twitter search:
Democracy Spring, a coalition of far-left groups plotting mass civil disobedience with thousands pledging to risk arrest, is set to kick off its nationwide activism on Saturday at the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia’s Independence Mall.
OWS. The Arab “spring’ it was just the beginning of their downhill run. Right before our eyes- under our noses- they feed the foolish with their agit-prop. Deconstruct the system. And what they choose to destroy- to abhor- they CLAIM to protect. NOW they wish to SAVE “democracy”.
