Oct 24, 2019. NYC. Stumbled upon a Marxist gathering leading a very noisy protest: the “Cuomo Picket: Green NEW Deal Now!” outside the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. Pity the poor theatre-goers who had to deal with this.
The CAUSE du jour: The Green New Deal is a 10-year plan to mobilize every aspect of American society to 100% clean and renewable energy by 2030, a guaranteed living-wage job for anyone who needs one, and a just transition for both workers and frontline communities. [The Earth Initiative]
In side the Lunt-Fontanne was the new Tina Turner Broadway musical. It was in previews and Gov. Cuomo was hosting a fundraiser with a private reception before the show. Top dollar donations and YOU TOO can get a photo-op with the Governor. [Face Book]
The Marxists were not going to miss an opportunity to harass Gov. Cuomo. Pity the innocent theatre goers who thought they were just seeing a Broadway show. Not tonight.
It was a busy night in Times Square. Commies in front of the Lunt and a short hop to the east – in Duffy Square- a Israel inspired kumzitz (they had a huge turnout) with joyful singing and dancing.
All activity in Duffy square takes place under the statues of Broadway’s George M Cohan and WW 1 war hero, Father Duffy. Currently there is also a temporary statue, paid for by the Time Sq Alliance, mocking Southern Civil War Horse statues.
There were the obnoxious cartoon characters (ILLEGALS inside those costumes) conning tourists into paying $$$$ for pictures; also the des Nudes aggressively conning the gullible for an over priced picture.
NYC – a little something for EVERY ONE.
Back to the Lunt-Fontanne: The New York Daily News reportage on the protest had this to say about the Marxists; they were there to “….. convince New York pols to place a full moratorium on fossil fuel infrastructure, implement higher taxes on the rich to pay for Green New Deal proposals and to make utilities publicly-owned. Activists are calling for a tax hike on the rich ― a suggested 5% increase on income over $500,000 per year — to raise the $10 billion they say is necessary to combat pollution, fund investments in mass transit and housing, and create a people-owned power grid solely reliant on renewable energy.” [NY Daily News]
[Sunrise Movement] The ” movers and shakers”, building an army of young people to stop climate change, causing all the commotion and they looked about TWELVE years of age. Matthew Miles Goodrich, Sunrise Movement’s New York state director, and others that you can pull up on Google, include also New York Communities for Change, aka ACORN (a different name but STILL ACORN) and Food and Water Watch. These are the Millennials the product of the Marxist infiltration of our schools, who are dedicated to the chicken-little protests that will supposedly SAVE the WORLD.

AND the South Asian Fund For Education, Scholarship & Training [https://www.safest15.com/] On Site: NY State Governor Andrew Cuomo’s representatives praised SAFEST, a pro-immigrant body – SAFEST (South Asian Fund for Education, Scholarship and Training) – a non-political, non-partisan humanitarian organization that relentlessly works to empower those South Asian immigrants who are lack in English.
Why was this Muslima protesting against the Governor for the South Asian Fund?

++ On October 24, Governor Cuomo is holding a fundraiser, and we’ll be there, calling on him to enact a Green New Deal for New York.
We’ll be outside the event, holding signs, chanting, and distributing leaflets urging Cuomo to implement an agenda that includes:
* Stopping all fossil fuel infrastructure
* Public power
* 100% renewable energy
* Taxing the rich to fund a rapid, just transition
