On December 19, 2022 the Guardians of Divinity (G.O.D.) respectfully approached NYC Councilman Erik Bottcher’s office to demand a public apology for falsely labeling them “Faces of Hate” merely because they opposed the NYPL Drag Queen Story Hour. ( see Bottcher’s video from December 17th)
He was called out for his LIES and his unwillingness to apologize. But, Bottcher Hid and Lied – again and again- as he continued his “Faces of Hate“slander and accused them of STORMING his office. ALL LIES.
These videos reveal there was no ‘STORMING’. (Video Part 1)
.. But, the cowardly Erik Bottcher hid in his office anyway, watching his security cams.( Part 2)
.He could see there was NO storming of the building, as did the FNTV cameraman, Ed Quinn. They both continued the ‘STORMING’ lie, even though there was NO such action. Requesting entry by knocking on the door is not an act of aggression.
( Part 3 video as the finished and quietly left the building)
FLICKR Slide Show: Once outside the building, the Guardians chalked their message on the sidewalks while Bottcher continued to HIDE inside. The Freedom News TV cameraman, along with the Councilman, continued to fan the flames of hatred with their LIES.
Outside , still wondering would the Councilman ever respond, the NYPD showed up. But since no laws were broken, there was no reason for the police to hang around.

.I was only at the afternoon office event. What transpired that evening, at his apartment, also did not qualify as storming.Holding signs. ringing his buzzer. Calling him out from the street was their right as protestors. Yet, Bottcher, ever the drama queen, had the NYPD arrest two female protestors who had done NOTHING to support his claims of threatening his safety. AGAIN. HE LIED.
The only real damage done was by one of Bottcher’s people who didn’t like the chalk on the sidewalk, so he BROKE the phone of a protestor. (A crime ignored by the police.)

.The Councilman has now used the courts to threaten the protestors with arrest if they come within a certain distance of HIM. He got a judge to give him an ORDER Of PROTECTION.
ARREST INFO –
Now THIS is the template for storming, threatening. destruction and death. that was laid down in 2020. The Summer of BLM HATE. We should never forget the summer of 2020 and the lack of concern from the left-media. Those violent perpetrators WALKED.
What took place on the 19th of December – in NYC- day and night was nothing more than legal protesting. The Councilman’s charges were lies. Demanding their arrest for protesting … Shame, Shame on you, Councilman Bottcher.
“Save the Children. Let the Children Be Children. Why must Drag Queens read to children. What are they promoting? Let the Kids Be Kids”
The Guardians still await their apology.
