Sept 23, 2019 Bryant Park – NYC Marxists “United in OUTRAGE”. Hosted by Rise and Resist and Refuse Fascism.
Rise and Resist, formed in response to the 2016 US election, is a direct action group made up of both new and experienced activists committed to opposing, disrupting, and defeating any government act that threatens democracy, equality, and our civil liberties. We work collaboratively, creatively, respectfully, and with all the joy we can muster for the health of the people and the planet. [Rise and Resist NYC]
There was a fun twist to the protest when the “Patriots For Trump 2020” crashed the “March of (Out)Rage”. Seems a public park allows for freedom of assembly, on both sides, making those outraged Marxists even more OUT RAGED.
The Marxists did not like sharing their message with the Trump 2020’s.
The battle of the banners quietly ‘raged’ on.
FLICKR slide show of both sides
Video 1- Marxists shocked to see Patriots for Trump crashing their anti-Trump protest.
Video 2 – The Patriots caused the Marxists to plead with the police to remove the patriots from a public park. (Did not happen.)
Video 3 – Two young women of the Leftist persuasion quizzed the Women for Trump on how could they support Trump – based on the 2005 audio tape. When asked, they did not include Clinton, Teddy Kennedy or Uncle Joe Biden in the same discussion, claiming to not know enough …. and … it didn’t matter.
Video 4 – Marxists vs Asian Americans for Trump as the march leaves Bryant Park.
One of the Marxist leaders of Rise and Resist, Jay W. Walker, (on the right in picture below) let it be known he did not like the Trump 2020’s mixing in with their protest.
Jay W. Walker is on the steering committee of the New York chapter of REFUSE FASCISM, a front group for the Revolutionary Communist Party. He is described by co-initiator Sunsara Taylor as a “leader” of REFUSE FASCISM.
Meanwhile, the Trump 2020 Patriots continue to crash these very left-of-center peace-in events. On October 10, 2019, the Marxists held another RAGE-in at Washington Square, joined by Extinction Rebellion AND the Trump 2020’s!. [Link to follow soon]
