SAY NO TO Mayor Bill de Blasio and his FREE SPEECH POLICE!
October 7, 2019. 5 pm. outside NY City Hall. A protest was planned in support of Free Speech.
“NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio wants to impose fines of up to $250k on New Yorker’s for using the term”Illegal Alien” If this isn’t enough, he also wants to legislate that we cannot tell “Illegal Aliens” to speak in English, in an English Speaking United States! He also suggests that reporting “Illegals Aliens” to ICE is a Hate Crime.” Tell Bill How You feel! We support LEGAL Immigration. [Face Book]
This was a great idea for a protest so I headed downtown to City Hall, looking forward to challenging Mayor de Blasio and his Marxist/Socialist Free Speech fines; fines that diminish our rights as American Citizens. The message, tell “Red Bill” de Blasio: WE Won’t Pay!
The city’s Commission on Human Rights releases a new 29-page directive …
The directive reads “‘Alien’ — used in many laws to refer to a ‘non-citizen’ person — is a term that may carry negative connotations and dehumanize immigrants, marking them as ‘other,’…The use of certain language, including ‘illegal alien’ and ‘illegals,’ with the intent to demean, humiliate, or offend a person or persons constitutes discrimination.”
The directive goes on to list several examples of acts and comments that would run afoul of the restrictions, including harassing people over their accents or grasp of English, or wielding the threat of a call to Immigration and Customs Enforcement as a tool of hate. [de Blasio Fine]
When de Blasio ran for Mayor, NYC was warned he had a love affair with Cuba and Marxism; a warning ignored. (see presser from 2013)
Now, in his second term, the Marxist/Socialist list has grown. However, missing from the on-line list, Margaret Chin and Ydanis Rodriguez. And previous city council members, elected to other jobs, Jumaane Williams, now Public Advocate and Letitia James, now Attorney General of NY State: Movin’ on up.

And …. it’s worse State wide. That’s why we were here today, to focus on the de Blasio free speech assault. But, finding the Mayor de Blasio protest was a challenge. After a 30 minute search, I located some activity, but it was a Trump 2020 rally.
Not what was promoted. Not what I came for. As I headed back up town, I found one “We Won’t Pay” protestor, Karen from Yad Yamin. On Message!
Mayor de Blasio “We Won’t Pay” was a great idea for a protest since the socialist machine intends to remake our governments, local and national. Venezuela. Cuba. Fighting back, even locally, is very important. I’m here for you, President Trump, but today was supposed to be about Mayor de Blasio’s socialist harassment and fines against free speech. Maybe next time.
FREE SPEECH threatened by Mayor Bill de Blasio.
We Must Fight back …
STOP Mayor de Blasio and his assault on Free Speech!
