Monday morning. November 11, 2019.
At approx 8 AM, patriots gathered on the south side of Madison Park to give thanks to our veterans and enlisted men and women for their service, as well as our President. They had a great turn out. Unfortunately, around 10 am, the Iraqi and Afghanistan Vets asked the NYPD Strategic Response Group to disburse our patriots from this location at Broadway and East 23rd street. (Seriously)According to the NYPD, the Iraqi and Afghanistan Vets had reserved this area for their booths. (the booths were unobstructed) The NYPD lead officer politely informed the patriots that the Iraqi and Afghanistan Vets had reserved this area for their booths ONLY so please relocate their group, away from this public thoroughfare.It seemed, however, that the police were NOT asked to disburse the Rise and Resist Marxists from this same location.The Marxists caused quite a stir performing for an eager media and grew even more outrageous once the President began to speak, RUDELY blowing whistles and shouting “lock him up”. THIS was politics as the Lefties’ protest held firm in the Iraqi vets’ location. The NYPD disbursed the patriots, but not the Rise-Resist Lefties. Was this perhaps a top-down order from Mayor “Red Bill” de Blasio?The complaints: the patriots made the Veterans Day Parade political; our commander in chief – by his presence – was making it political. Propaganda spewed by the left. Sad that some vets accepted this agitprop as fact: offended by patriotism but not by the offensive behavior and POLITICAL signs held by the Marxist/Left.The patriots hung in there, not all walked away. Wherever they stood, all were happy, positive, and respectfully thankful. Giving thanks to our vets as they passed by was an important gesture.Flickr Slide show (both sides) The NYPD had patriots moved, by request of the Iraqi/Afghanistan Vets …. NOW the Leftists had a prime spot for the media.
Part 1 video- This vet was very unhappy about perceived politics invading the parade. Upset with the patriots. He didn’t seem to take issue with the Rise and Resist lefties beside him, just the Trump supporters.
Part 2 video – The Trump Patriots were there MAINLY to support the troops, our vets, but also President Trump; that should be okay. After all, the Marxist Left has made his presence very political, the main issue throughout the media. So, showing support for our president was to counter the Marxist hatred THEY led and fed.
DID NOT hear the Marxists supporting the troops or the vets; support and thanks came from the patriots, even as they were asked to move away from the Iraqi/Afghanistan vets. They did so respectfully. [uwvc.org/vetsday]
Next, excerpts from media, some support our Commander-in-Chief, some obvious fans of the Marxist/Left.
“Our Veterans risked everything for us. Now it is our duty to serve and protect them” said the President before a wreath-laying ceremony. As one of the biggest defenders and advocates of our men and women in uniform, President Trump assured “to each veteran of the war, the glory of your deeds will only grow greater with time.”[bongino.com]
This was in support of Mayor deBlasio
Look,it’s the hundredth anniversary of this parade. So I think it’s very appropriate that the president was here. This is not a day for partisanship,” de Blasio told reporters while taking a break along the Fifth Avenue parade route.” [NY Daily News]
HOWEVER, not all was peace and love for the Mayor:
”Mayor Bill de Blasio was booed and jeered by spectators as he marched in the city’s 100th annual Veterans Day Parade on Monday. One parade-goer — wearing an American flag sweatshirt and a mask depicting President Trump partially on the top of his head — shouted F-bombs as Hizzoner walked past.”
Other onlookers called the mayor, “Comrade de Blasio” and urged him to “go home.” [NY Post]
Lefties disrespecting the President with no mention of the MANY patriots who supported him.
“Trump’s remarks at Madison Square Park in Manhattan were largely devoid of politics, but even in New York on Veterans Day the president could not entirely avoid the political headlines that have dogged him in Washington. Protesters spelled out the words “impeach” and “convict” in letters taped to the windows of a high-rise overlooking the park, and chants of “lock him up” were heard from the crowd. Demonstrators gathered near the site of Trump’s speech to protest his presence and could be heard by attendees chanting “lock him up” and blowing whistles in the distance.” [The Hill]
THERE WERE NOT “one hundred” where I stood.
[ABC7NY] “…. more than 100 protesters gathered and could be heard with whistles and booing. Some chanted “lock him up” and “shame, shame, shame.”[ABC7NY ] It was 30 Lefties maybe 40 ….. at best
Some patriot wisdom:
Of the protesters,“I think they’re traitors, if they don’t like him, vote him out … like we’ve done for 200 years.“
This excerpt of the Presidents speech honored our Veterans. The Commie Left just couldn’t leave him alone. But listen, it was NOT political.

We should have one goal and one goal only: to protect our country from the Marxist insurgence; to protect our republic from the devastation of socialism, from tyranny.
Leftist thugs doing what leftist thugs do at Binghamton University in New York. THIS is THE FUTURE that the Marxists at Rise and Resist, like NYC’s current mayor, are working toward.
Saul Alinsky tactics all over again … except more violent … this will not end well.
Real patriotism is giving thanks and praise to those who serve (which includes our President). G-d help us turn the tide.
