January 19, 2019. NYC. Two opposing “Women’s March” rallies were scheduled. This was the UNITY rally lead by extreme leftists; progs, socialists, racists and anti-Semites. They gathered in Foley Square to denounce all things “Trump”; while proclaiming to the world that only they represent “true diversity and unity“.
However, reading the New Women’s March Manifesto Includes Support for Anti-Israel Agenda says it all : DIVISION is their mantra.
The JDL-NY counter-protestors loudly denounced the racism and hatred that was spewed from the stage, boldly challenging the do-gooder fraud of diversity and unity.
“About a half-dozen counter-protesters stood across the street and screamed “Jew haters!” and held signs saying “The Farrakhan March.” [NY Post]
We applaud Laura Loomer who appeared on-stage as Okeyo began reading a list of names. Loomer looked at first like any photographer taking a crowd-shot. [so I looked down – doh!] I failed to catch Laura as she began to shout at the crowd.
“Keynote speaker and filmmaker Agunda Okeyo was interrupted when right-wing activist Laura Loomer, who is Jewish, crashed the stage and tried to commandeer the mic, shouting, “What about the Jews?” “The women’s march hates Jews!” she shouted repeatedly. “Linda Sarsour’s a Jew hater! Tamika Mallory’s a Jew Hater!” she hollered as she was led away by security. “I thought Jewish women were invited! I came to your party!” [NY Post]
Caught site of feminist, Gloria Steinem, watching Loomer’s exit from the bottom of stairs.

Even though ONE renegade Leftie held a sign professing support for Israel, her sign went against the published position held by this Farrakhan-sponsored Women’s Movement.
Found more outrageous Sarsour agit-prop, “Sarsour Posts Article Claiming Jews Waging War on Black People“. The lies piled on for all the silly progressives to dine-on.
“Join the Jewish Contingent for the Women’s Unity Rally hosted by Jewish Voice for Peace-New York City. We will rally against racism, misogyny, Islamophobia, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, colonialism, and violence. We will fight for the empowerment of women and girls, immigrants’ rights, LGBTQI equality, and Palestinian liberation. Join this contingent of inter-generational, diverse, loud, progressive, Jewish New Yorkers”
JDL – NY was there to EDUCATE the passersby with NEVER AGAIN; challenging the hypocrites at JVP who support BDS. [Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions]
The Jewish Voice For Peace “progressives” continue with: “We stand against … the false accusations of anti-Semitism so often used to divide us as women, Jews, and activists for transformational justice. We will stand together against rising fascism and we will create a more just world with safety and liberation for all.” [JVP Face Book]
They met to share songs and prayers for Shabbat, at 9:30 am that morning, led by Rabbi Ellen Lippmann, Rabbi Amichai Lau Lavie, and Rabbinic Student Mackenzie Reynolds before the rally began at 10:00am.

++ Over and over we were told, the “Women’s March NYC, is a group led by women of color activists and their allies from across New York; celebrating the progress we’ve made over the last two years and the work that lies ahead.”
“In response to the Trump Administration’s continued assault on immigrant communities and communities of color, the march includes a coalition of grassroots & labor orgs who celebrate ALL women!” [Action Network]
“The Women’s March Movement” claims they were born out of frustration over Trump’s 2016 election.” I guess they were. But, YOU LOST, so GET OVER IT!
Commie-Babe, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, spoke after I left. No matter, who ever speaks and wherever they speak, they all belly-ache the same tropes over and over: Trumpers and Repubs are BAD.
Repetition is their friend. Conning the people through the ages. Breeding ignorance that continues to destroy generations.
These women below were giddy while sharing their abortion services.
Giddy while promoting genocide.
