November 2, 2019. Madison Square Garden. Marxists from Rise and Resist/Refuse Fascism continued their 5 week Trump/Pence #OutNow protests as they waited for President Trump to arrive for the UFC fight. [Face Book]
5:30 pm: The arrival of the Rise and Resist/Refuse Fascism Marxists began outside the 8th Avenue entrance to Madison Sq Garden. With banners, signs, drums and chants, they assembled and did not go unnoticed by the passersby. … Making a mighty noise to the beat of the drums.Part 1 video Marxists:
Sunsara Taylor, “We are facing a Fascist America. We are here, in the name of humanity. At the same time, these protests are happening across this country because we are facing a Fascist America; and we are representing the interests of humanity, of a million people who do not want to live in a world turned into a nightmare by the Trump/Pence regime. We have a right; we have a responsibility …
Sunsara had to compete with a crazy street lady who hogged the scene while Taylor preached Communism; making much of what she said difficult to understand.
(the chants continued) ” Trump Pence, Out Now; New York City, Protest Tonight. (to the beat, beat, beat of a drum) Trump and Pence, Must Go; Join us. NOW. Trump Pence, Out Now.”
As they raised their orange banner “crazy woman” raced for the center, eventually becoming the cover-shot of the NY Post.
Watching the commies tolerate these unwanted attention seekers was fun, Penn Station eccentrics gyrating to the incessant drums; an added perk to the goings on as the cameras CLICKED away.
Part 2 video Marxists: (after chants) “Danger, Danger there’s a Fascist in the White House; Drive them out.” Sunsara Taylor continues, “Donald Trump is in the White House. He’s coming to New York City, coming here to Madison Square Garden, and we are here to say, “Hell, No.” We are here to say,” NO, NO,” to White Supremacy; to Fascism; to the nightmare of the Trump/Pence regime. We are not going to be provoked. Humanity first and we are not going to be provoked by Fascists.”
Part 3 video Marxists – chants – (lots of drums) “Puerto Rico showed us how, Trump/Pence, out now … We gotta go forward.” (cheers) “… today we will take to the streets in New York; in Seattle; in Atlanta; in Chicago; in Los Angeles; in D.C. Trump/Pence Out Now. Today!”
But, “Where, oh, Where” were the Patriots? Finally, I heard. Patriots for Trump were on the 7th Avenue side of MSG, so I switched avenues.
Had to walk under Penn Station, the side streets were closed, but once above ground I found the Patriots holding a robust counter-protest to the few Marxists on this side.
Part 1 video Patriots (Lots of chants) “Build the Wall. Build the Wall. God Bless, America. Let’s Vote Trump”
Part 2 video Patriots – “USA. Vote for Trump! (Black Trump Supporter) “Our Country’s doing great with Trump in there. We got jobs coming out. China. Step back, China. We Number One. America is Number One. USA. USA.”
Part 3 video Patriots –“Trump 2020 “(cheers) “Stop the coup. Stop the coup”.
Earlier, at 8th avenue, I had seen a Marxist banner with photos of so called victims ‘murdered’ by the NYPD. (Hard to stomach their hatred for our law enforcement.)
Now, on the 7th avenue side, I found the Patriots honoring this Day of Remembrance with banners and posters for those victims murdered by ILLEGALS. This excerpted video shows how important Diane Atkins’ impassioned twitter video was …. filmed live from the protest … to counter the Marxist LIES.
“... Stolen Lives Quilt, these are some of the Americans killed by ILLEGAL aliens (…) some teenagers that were chopped to death with machetes in Long Island by ILLEGALS in MS13. The Remembrance Project, ten years of advocating for the victims. (another poster) These are young men that were killed by MS13 ILLEGAL gang members. This is why we support ICE … the sovereignty of the United States of America. This is what we are talkin about…this one, a 24 year old, beautiful girl. Her ILLEGAL alien, EX-boyfriend KILLED her; stuffed her in a suitcase; left on the side of the road. Shot a two year old baby in the head. This is what we are dealing with. So, at this point … say a prayer; a moment of silence, as we remember every single innocent American who was slaughtered, brutalized, KILLED; whose lives were STOLEN by ILLEGAL aliens who were here committing heinous crimes. Many were deported, came back in, committed more crimes (deported multiple times): multiple offenders; multiple, multiple crimes.”
It seems, without any fanfare, the NYPD had cleared 8th avenue forcing the Marxists to 7th avenue. The dual protests were growing.
Plus many more pedestrians on this side made it difficult to get full view pictures of the patriot banners.
With both sides facing off in front of Madison Sq Garden, and the Trumpers holding strong, I headed back to 8th avenue for the last time (not knowing there was no protest on that side now).
Doing the underground crossover, I encountered Sunsara Taylor being turned away from the 8th ave exit. (Yes, the NYPD had closed it off to everyone) Apparently the President was arriving on the 8th ave. side of MSG. Sunsara noticed my NYPD press-pass so she asked me, “Did I know where her protest was; had I seen them?” Yep, they were on the 7th ave. side.
She then asked who I wrote for. “Independent”, said I; confessing I wasn’t ‘on her team”. Sunsara couldn’t get away from me fast enough, knowing I wasn’t a commie. She looked like I had tased her. (fun- again)
Some media reportage that came out the next day:
[AM NY] ; [ NY Post] ; [ CNN] ; [ NY Daily New 1]
Sunsara Taylor, a member of an organization called Refuse Fascism, told CNN she was a part of a movement made up of “diverse political perspectives” who agree that the Trump/Pence administration poses a threat to all of us. Our goal is to drive them out through mass non-violent protests.”
Communists personal characterization: “diverse political perspectives” – cue laughter-

President Trump pumped his fist in the air as the crowd
booed and cheered him when he arrived Saturday night at an Ultimate Fighting Championship event at Madison Square Garden.Trump was invited to the event by UFC’s president, Dana White, the White House said. White is a big Trump donor. With Trump were House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.). Trump’s sons Eric and Don Jr. were also in the group.
