Marxists Protest Pres.Trump at Madison Sq Garden vs Trump 2020 Patriots

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-

[ NY Daily News 2 ]

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.

And lastly, the Flickr slide show of  both sides

.During this three year push for impeachment, the Soc/Commie Left momentum has grown. We must not sleep, patriots must gather steam as well. We, too, need to be on the streets; this is WAR.

“Trump/Pence #OutNow as the Marxist Revolution Continues

“October 19, 2019.  Union Square.  Wake up America. The Communist Revolution is at war with the U.S. Constitution, with America. It’s time to take their words and actions seriously.

Hosted by Refuse Fascism NYC and Refuse Fascism,Cornel West, Carl Dix , Andy Zee and Sunsara Taylor launched the first weekend of 5 weeks of nationwide protests, planned until the Trump/Pence Regime is removed from office. Face Book.

The instigators’ revolutionary bios:

 Cornel West, the son of a Baptist minister, is  a radical democrat and democratic socialist. West draws intellectual contributions from multiple traditions, including Christianity, the black church, Marxism, neopragmatism and transcendentalism .

Carl Dix  is a member of the Revolutionary Communist Party and advocate of Bob Avakian’s New Communism. In 1996, Dix co-founded the October 22nd Coalition to Stop Police Brutality, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation.

 Andy Zee is a co-initiator of REFUSE FASCISM, a project of the Revolutionary Communist Party and the Revolution Books NYC spokesperson.

Sunsara Taylor is a supporter of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA (RCP),[1]  Refuse Fascism and World Can’t Wait.

Video 1Andy Zee lays out the #OUTNOW  movement against Fascists, Trump and ….  Christians. 

Beginning with chants (threats):  “The Trump/Pence Regime Must GO.”Trump Pence Out Now, Puerto Rico showed us how”; “Trump and Pence are Fascists, there’s no doubt. Rise up. Rise up. Drive them out”

[Andy Zee] “This Fascist regime, this is their last chance. Decades in the making, they have built up a Christian Fascist movement. This doesn’t mean all Christians, but there is a Christian Fascist movement in this country that goes all the way up to the military and they want to change the rules of the game. They want to actually establish a theocracy. If you don’t believe me, READ the Attorney General Barr’s speech at Notre Dame, where he laid it out straight up – this would be the actual determinant of law, what’s in the bible taken literally; which is a HORROR for humanity.

And “Christians” like Cornel West do not take the bible literally.

But this is real. This is not something, that rhetoric to gin you all up and go out and raise your fists. This is a real thing. There’s millions of people who are organized behind a Fascist movement and on top of that, there’s very powerful people in the ruling class of this country who are supporting this. This is not just Donald Trump. But, here’s a problem we face. The poet, W.B. Yates said after ….

[Pro Trump heckler in back of crowd] What are you going to do about it.

(Yates quote is heard in the background) “The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity.”

(Zee continues) And this too much describes the people in this country. And this is not to denigrate the people who are out there fighting around the various affects of this regime … heroic people who have been run over by cars, people who have been arrested, people who have occupied offices…that is necessary, but it is insufficient because each of these struggles will be washed over by this regime should it succeed in power.

Now, this impeachment opens up a constitutional crisis. Which means that people are raising their heads and saying, “Well, maybe we can do something about it.” But, this is a fight at the top of society. It requires you to see that there’s a good ending to this, that the interests of humanity are in here. Nancy Pelosi is impeaching only on the grounds of national security and emoluments. But, look, she’s leaving the whole Fascist agenda intact, and if that happens, if he even is impeached in the House of Representatives, that will leave a ‘legitimation’ of the agenda and reduce this to an election issue, one they have a told you already they want to make secondary to economic incentives and things like that; which are important needs that people have but it’s nothing but bribery to keep your eyes off the prize of what really has to be done right now.

So, we can’t just do this based on the people on top. It has to be a ground-swell from below; that’s what you’re out here doing today. And it’s not just a matter of each one of us convincing one, it’s a matter of understanding that we’re working on  …  a great deal of crisis. That people are increasingly raising their heads and opening their eyes, and they have to see a movement out there that starts with thousands today and tens of thousands within a few weeks that grows to the point that we not relent on this.”

A couple of Trump 2020’s braved the commie disdain, like this biker.

Video 2, The biker-type was a Trump 2020 supporter. He was challenged by a furious hardcore Marxist female. Called him a racist. A woman of color was quite angry with another Trump supporter (a man of color). She told him he was crazy. He spoke to a red-headed WHITE girl who mocked him when he mentioned the Marxists were encouraging separation/division.  She snarls back at him with “Separation of the Fascist fucking regime? Trump.” (throwing her head back with a laugh of ridicule).

Video 3 – Mothers of color railed against the NYPD and ….  Trump.  Excerpted Intros. (mentioned) Juanita Young, the mother of  Malcolm Ferguson. 

Hawa Bah, the mother of Mohamed Bah, who was murdered by the NYPD, speaks:  “They killed my son. I will never be the same in my life. Me and my family will never be the same. Mohamed was one year raised in West Africa. I bring him here to get a better life. They KILLED him.”

Last woman (no name) [:33] “And next they’ll be coming for YOU. Make sure you stand on it now before someone knocks on your door. Or kills your child. Get rid of the leader of this crew. This gang that we have in the White House. The Trump/Pence regime and all of his soldiers. They are marching in tune, one behind the other. Stand up and be counted. Let us not go back to before slavery. Let us not go back to the massacre of the native Americans. Let’s go forward. We’ve come too far to go back.  Step up your name. Step up your count. Step up your feet. If you can’t run, grab a limb. If you have no shoes, drag a leg. But move forward. We’re goin’ on  from here. We are not going back. Trump/Pence Must Go!! (fist held high)  Go! Go! Go!”

Video 4-  Sunsara Taylor, an advocate for “the new synthesis on revolution and communism” developed by Bob Avakian, called for Donald Trump to be “driven from office”  [revcom]

[Sunsara begins with a Hillary southern drawl] “Let’s make some noise, y’all.” (cheers) “Now I have a question for you. I have a question. Do y’all feel like marchin’?” (crowd,YES) “Do y’all feel like hittin’ the streets?” (cheers) “Do y’all feel like takin’ this message up to that tower? Trump Tower. The towering [curse] of this regime? We are going to march right to the tower. Are you ready? (cheers) Okay, so we all gonna soon get organize. We are gonna hit the streets. First, I wanta let you know that we have a right to be here. We have a right to raise our demands. We have a right to be heard by the world. I wantcha to know, we had to battle to get a permit and we have a permit to march. And we asked them to march, and you guys … We’re gonna call on people as we march to join with us. I want you to know that we put in a demand, a legitimate demand to march right up to Trump Tower. And you want to know somethin’? The NYPD did not grant us a permit to be in front of Trump Tower. I wantcha to know this. We have a right to be there. We intend to march there. They have told us they will escort us to the tower, so that is our expectation. But, I wantcha to know, I want everybody to understand, and I want the police to understand. I want the city to understand and I want the world to understand that Trump Tower is the place where it matters that our demands to be heard; that is the symbol of this regime in NYC. Am I right? (cheers) That is where Donald Trump came down the escalator and called Mexicans rapists and announced his campaign. That’s where we demand to be heard. That’s where we intend to be heard. That’s where Donald Trump came out after Charlottesville; and the White Supremacists with their torches and murdered Heather Meyer. That’s where Donald Trump said, “Those are fine people.” That’s where we intend to raise our demand out loud; and we intend to be there and be heard there. Am I right? (cheers) So we fully expect that justice and reason will prevail. And we will be able to march unimpeded and deliver this message there; and we are going to do it together. So let’s get organized and hit-the-streets.”

Video 5  – Chanting as they marched to Trump Tower at 57th St, “Rise up Rise up, Drive them up.

Trump and Pence are Fascist, there’s no doubt.” (drums- maracas)

“The #OUTNOW protests call for an immediate end to the Trump administration and are meant to encourage massive outpourings like what took place in Puerto Rico against former Governor Ricardo Rosselló and in Hong Kong against an anti-extradition bill that residents felt threatened the semi-autonomous territory’s democracy.” [the villager]

 The  Socialist REVOLUTION, the machine, can be seen in this Marxist indoctrination video from 2017 (edited for shorter talking points). Listening to their relentless propaganda makes defeating communism’s  goals seem daunting, or … makes us even more determined to challenge the Marxist lies.

 Do you know what your children have been given to read, as enticements to join the Marxist/ Socialist bandwagon? These materials are welcomed, considered non-threatening: Enlightenment. (click picture to enlarge a view of some of the Communist reading materials.)


The  Socialist REVOLUTION, revealed in this Marxist indoctrination video from 2017. Fascism in America: Can It Happen Here? Is It Happening Here? What is the Danger the Trump/Pence Government Poses?

They are ALL so very, very compassionate and WISE.

The panel of speakers included: Jay W. Walker, Refuse Fascism. With: George Prochnik, author, New Yorker contributor; Rita Dentino, Casa Freehold of National Day Laborers Organizing Network; Kierán Suckling, Executive Director of Center for Biological Diversity; Andy Zee, Refuse Fascism, Revolution Books NYC and Sunsara Taylor, Revolutionary Communist Party.

A short excerpt of the wrap up, after the “Rise of Fascism”panel, by moderator, Sunsara Taylor.  Full video link [https://youtu.be/Y2yI81-s3R0] …. Marxist indoctrination 101 ….

April 27th, 2017 (Church of The Village) Intro by Jay Walker (Sunsara at 1:47) People have a very hard time handling world, part of the impulse that gets filled with a lot of religion in this very insecure world, not just religion in general but, fundamentalism and absolutism, is living in contradiction with a lot of variables and a lot of uncertainties. Is this good for us? Trump has brought all these people together. A lot of people like that. It’s comforting and it’s simple. You have the history of this country’s biggest protests after the election, this is good for us.  I agree, this is very bad. It’s not good if the planet gets destroyed. It’s not good for the refugees, for those people  whose lives are crushed right now. … I’m sure people in the audience , when you were speaking, thought, “Oh, shit. Now we’re fucked.” (excuse me, we’re in a church) We’re doomed.  I think it’s very, very bad, the situation, and I agree with what was said. But, here’s a contradiction (I will pull a quote I learned; written, I think, in the Bush years) it’s even more true now. History is filled with examples where people who have RIGHT on their side fought against tremendous odds and were successful. History is also full of  examples where people sat back and hoped  … only to get swallowed by a horror beyond what they ever imagined. The future is unwritten and which one we get is up to us … very few live in a time in history …  as significant as the one we are living in now. It is neither good for us, it’s very bad, nor is it doomed. And sitting at the middle of that pivot is every single person living in this country …. it’s not insignificant that tremendous numbers of people are in the street protesting. It is significant that a lot of people are saying “I identify with Muslims”. “I identify with the women under attack”. “I identify with people for the first time, the immigrants.” This is new for a lot of people. It is very significant. It’s not enough to stop them. There’s too much surface critique. There’s too much … being … ya know… comforted in the slow dismissal of some of the really stupid and ugly things that are said by Trump. But there is a basis to move those people … to unite them, to move them in to an actual movement that can drive them from power. And STOP them before they consolidate power and to go in to the streets and change the course of history.” [April 27, 1917]

As ordered, Communists are in-the-street; Socialism leads the way.

The relentless propaganda makes defeating communism  seem daunting, or … makes us even more determined to challenge the Marxist lies; the phony claims of Fascism as they also rail against Christians.

“Generational shifts will see older, more religious Democrats making way for a new generation. Before long a majority of all Democrats will no longer identify as Christians or as religious believers. The Democrats have not only adopted values that are fundamentally hostile to traditional religious believers, but the demographics show that they are living out those values. Republicans and Democrats are no longer divided by their approach to religion, but by religion itself.” [D. Greenfield]

Today it’s the Christians, tomorrow it’s Israel, BDS and the Jews. Religion is bad. Trump is bad. God is BAD.

Headline: “We need to get organized for an actual revolution”. The future gens are unable to recognize the end game for Marxist/Socialism, dumbed down by pretty “social justice” memes.

“We reject State sanctioned violence, bigotry, and systemic discrimination in all its forms, including those directed at people because of their disability, gender identity/expression, immigration status, race, religion, sex, and sexuality. We condemn all the oppressive policies that define the current government regime. We strive to intentionally honor the complex challenges we face. Join us in fighting for justice”.

What is taught in our schools, what is fed to the public 24/7, is so”1984″. [It’s not just a book anymore.]

“Take to the Streets, New York City. IMPEACH NOW!”

” On Sunday, October 13, 2019, folks from across the tri-state area will be taking to the streets in NYC as we join marches nationwide to demand our elected representatives IMPEACH NOW.”


Hosted by Rise and Resist ; March for Truth;
By the People – Impeach Trump; Women’s March.

IMPEACH NOW!  TOOK TO THE STREETS

“If we don’t act now to demand that Congress fulfill its constitutional duty, Trump will be emboldened to carry out further abuses of power that trample on our rights, harm our families, and violate the Constitution.”

The day we stop fighting for democracy is the day we lose it.” [Face Book]

The youthful leaders, the future of communism, as Impeach Now rang through Duffy Square

The younger they are, even more nefarious than the 20-somethings.

Today’s celebrity in-the-crowd was amongst our elders (who should know better) “social justice”warrior, Kathleen Chalfant.

Our Democracy is in Danger, from YOU, Kathleen.

Video 1. “We must drive this regime from office. And then take an upsurge from below. People going to the streets and staying in the streets (…) bringing symbols of the towering crimes of this fascist regime. It’s time to impeach. Dump Trump!”

Video 2 – “If you can hear me say IMPEACH. Today we are here to send a message across the country, to our members of congress, if they intend to return to D.C., we demand IMPEACH NOW. (…) This weekend we’re taking responsibility for our democracy; for our people. Because somebody is above the law. The Constitution has a form of accountability. It is impeachment. There is no question … he will continue to abuse his power. To violate the constitution and put the safety of American lives at risk. We have no choice, for the future of our country, we must demand that we IMPEACH TRUMP NOW. We demand that Congress …  in the House ….inquiry … pass articles of impeachment. This Fall. (…) We are here because we love our country. And the only way to protect our country is to support our democracy. So say with me, IMPEACH NOW.”

Video 3 – “We are the National Revolution. We’re joining up to drive out the Trump Pence Fascist Regime because the reality is the system brought this nightmare. (…)We have to come together under a single unified (?) Out Now. Out Now! We want to unite and struggle with everybody (..) because business as usual is what got us here. A system founded on genocide and slavery.  And we don’t wanta go back. (…)We have to get organized for revolution. Let’s get to know each other.”

Video 4. “Union Square. People gotta be there. We’re gonna launch the OUT NOW Movement. We’re gonna launch my marching to Trump Tower and bringing items that represent Trump crimes. Trump towering crimes of fascism. Bring baby shoes to represent the immigrants who’ve been torn from their parents. Bring coat hangers to represent women going back to the dark ages. Bring oil to represent the destruction to our planet. Trump’s speech in Minneapolis  was the speech of an American Hitler whipping up fascist mobs to violence. The same fascist mobs that murdered our people in El Paso. And this is important, Trump is not going to follow the law. The Democrats have called for impeachment. And what did he say? He said I’m not gonna comply. We can’t wait this out. Turn off your TV. Get off the couch. And get in the streets like they did in Hong Kong. Like they did in Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico showed us how, Trump and Pence must go now.”

Video 5. The march heads for Union Square. “Hey Hey Ho Ho Donald Trump has got to go.” 3:03 (speaker) “We’re on the right side….now is the time to act. to be emboldened. …. Puerto Rico showed us how. Trump Pence out now.

“We are at the most critical moment in this fight yet. The ground of what’s politically possible is shifting, but we have to keep up the momentum until we’ve won.” [Face Book]

IMPEACH NOW!!

“No Biz with Tech” as Left Marches against Amazon Corporate Greed (again)

Oct 11. 2019. The Marxist/Socialist war against big business:“NO TECH FOR ICE!” continued as they gathered on the steps outside NYC’s famous public library (at 42nd and Fifth Ave)

“Close the Camps & End Corporate Profits from Immigrant Detention” hosted by NYC Democratic Socialists of America


AOC’s job-killing Amazon attack claimed that corporations only care about PROFITS. And since ICE is a state-sanctioned terrorist group, corporate TECH support from Amazon must END!

No Hate No Fear, Immigrants are Welcome Here!

Marxists/Socialists support the People, Open Borders and Sanctuary Cities for Illegals. Ignoring history, they only generate failure (think Venezuela, Cuba)

From Palestine to Mexico, all the walls have got to go!

Outside the library Socialists demanded an end to government collusion with ICE, profiteering (they say) from (ILLEGAL) immigrant detention.

Democrat Socialist accusations against corporate greed:

  • Salesforce contracts directly with CBP to provide custom software for hiring purposes. Through a $7.2 million annual contract, Amazon provides its Amazon Web Services to Palantir for their direct contract with ICE.Tech companies like Salesforce and Amazon provide the tools for the surveillance, detention, deportation and death of immigrants. In order to close immigrant detention camps, we must end the profit motive.”
  • The time has come for THE people to put a stop to the detention and deportation of immigrants and end the money-making that drives these policies.  It’s time to mobilize nationwide against the US’s draconian immigration policies and the corporations that profit from them! “

Video Part 1 March gathers at Main library at Fifth Ave- 42nd Street. Excerpted quotes from one speaker:

“The Democrats are partners with Trump in the attack on immigrants. (… in Jersey) counties all run by Democrats, they have the biggest concentration camps in the country (…) many of the immigrants here in liberal New York are dragged to their partners in New Jersey (…) grabbed by ICE, dragged to Newark, then sent off to the other part of the gulag in Miami (…) this happens repeatedly. We’ve got to build a movement … to march to the Democrats concentration camp, to demand its closure. Immigrants are not our enemy, it’s the billionaire class.”

Part 2 – Outside Amazon Book Store on 34th Street. Excerpted quotes from another speaker:

“Amazon … supplies facial recognition technology … they use for surveillance and  deportation of our immigrant community. It’s time for Amazon to say, “No Business with ICE.” (…) Salesforce, another company supplying tools for Border Control. (remember) they can’t deport people if the companies that profit from them no longer exist! (laughing) No TECH FOR ICE!”

The March concluded at Salesforce

Across from Bryant Park at Sixth Ave and 42nd St
Part 3  video finishes the march to Salesforce

Endorsements to END CORPORATE PROFITS partners included:
Close the Camps NYC
DRUM – Desis Rising Up & Moving
Jackson Heights Immigrant Solidarity Network
CODEPINK: Women For Peace / CODEPINK NYC
Laborers Local 79 – New York City

NYC Democratic Socialists is a local of Democratic Socialists of America, the largest socialist organization in the United States. NYC-DSA is run by its thousands of members and activists who are working together to build a democratic socialist organization in the five boroughs.”

“The NYC-DSA Immigrant Justice Working Group is organizing alongside local immigrant-led organizations to fight back against ICE, to expand protections and rights for (ILLEGAL) immigrants through state and local legislation, and end the corporate profiteering from immigrant labor exploitation and detentions and deportations.”

Close The Camps, Extinction Rebellion, Trump 2020 clash in Washington Sq

October 10, 2019. Washington Square.As I arrived, I noticed Extinction Rebellion had set up booths for the week of rebellion.

However, this was a 3-part protest; three diverse groups. Are we really BEYOND Politics?

Under the arch, we found the Silent Protest lead by Rise and Resist: “No Raids! Close The Camps.

In the middle, by the fountain, we had the Trump 2020 Patriots SURROUNDED by the usual leftists who hang in Washington Square). It’s all about politics.

Side note, I saw a Sukkot (sukkah) booth being erected during all of this madness, free of any harassment.

Part 1 video – Found the silent vigil for Close the Camps under the arch. Turned to see the the Trump 2020’s flag, surrounded by Washington Square Lefties. As usual, there was profanity from the left as they harassed the buoyant Trumpers. Of course, the leftists did not like the Trump 2020 flag. After some “playful” exchanges, the Bob Avakian REVOLUTION Marxists joined the circle around the Trumpers – and then an electric scooter and skateboards – round and round they went. While the police just watched. No harm. No foul, so the silliness rolled on.

Part 2 video : From the Close the Camps vigil back to the Trump 2020′s. Trump Trump Trump and F-Trump’s back and forth as the anti-Trumper  skateboards jumped into the circle. Then a familiar Black Trumper took on an obnoxious lefty and the black skateboarders with a calm verbal exchange. As always he is solid!

Close the Camps, Trump 2020 and Extinction Rebellion. Lots of activity, but the most disruptive seems to be Extinction Rebellion. While covering the more tame event in Washington Square, I missed their Times Square chaos. [Facebook]

Extinction Rebellion NYC blocked traffic for nearly two hours in Manhattan’s Times Square, resulting in 62 arrests for civil disobedience. A boat dropped in Times Sq. at the intersection of 44th and Broadway. Rebels surrounded the boat and super-glued themselves on, including 16 year old Nathaniel standing on top with his feet glued. We say no more business as usual. This is a CLIMATE EMERGENCY!  [https://www.xrebellion.nyc/]

It seems …. NO good … will come from these climate anarchists. A comment below illuminates the conflicting issues:

Climate change which started as global freezing was an invention of the old Soviet Union. We are seeing a number of damaging things such as political correctness (also a communist invention from the old Frankfurt School in pre WWII Germany) and of course the complete communist takeover of education in both europe and north America. [] [Geller Report]

The Marxists will not relent, as this declaration of  intent makes clear:

 “We are going to force the government to act, and if we don’t, if they don’t we will bring them down and create a democracy fit for purpose, and yes, some may die in the process,” the movement’s leader says. This is eco-fascism. “Excuse me?” Watson asks, “At what point did Extinction Rebellion go full Manson Family cult?” [Western Free Press]

Rise and Resist started the day, but the Extinction Rebellion (those Marxist Loons) made the larger imprint. Climate insurrectionists deconstructing our culture. our lives. our world. Silence is not the answer. We too must EDUCATE. Fight Back!

Marxists “United in Outrage” fun as Trump Patriots crash protest (9-23-19)

Sept 23, 2019 Bryant Park – NYC  MarxistsUnited 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.

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.[1]

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]

Climate Marxists reveal relentless indoctrination of Student Protestors in NYC

September 20, 2019. Foley Square. NYC. It’s a fact, Climate Strike Marxists have a solid grip on the “Hearts and Minds” of our children.

Extinction Rebellion  why have we allowed them to permeate our every thought with this dooms day insanity?

What I saw marching was giddiness. silliness. Students happily proclaiming ONLY they could save the world from this CHICKEN LITTLE extinction. Even though starting with pre-school, they are told they have no future. You’d think they’d be a bit sad? Nope. It was party!

Do you know what your child is being ‘taught’ ? After 40-50 years of hard-core leftist indoctrination, generations – including adults – cannot contradict the indoctrination they’ve been saturated with on all levels. Can we do ANYTHING to end this insanity? That’s the conundrum.

Controlled. Intimidated. Opposing Marxist agit-prop would make you a NAZI.

The streets of lower Manhattan were jam-packed from all sides with young and old. Sadly, we may have lost the war for the hearts and minds of the next generation.

Or, can we save the FUTURE? Will the truth win-out?

Short slide show of their ridiculous politics:

““There are real environmental issues, but global warming isn’t one of them. Man-made climate change is a monumental top-down fraud. It’s a ploy to prevent the third world from developing, to keep it mired in poverty. It’s a huge tax scam to redistribute wealth from the poor and the middle class to the one percent. And these self-satisfied, sanctimonious useful idiots, whether they know it or not, are fully complicit,” (Paul)Watson [Western Free Press]

Profanity seems to be as important to the younger participants as the ‘adults’: profanity de rigueur

Video of assembly and march

Unless we put an END government UNION-controlled indoctrination (aka education) the future will continue to look dim. Intellectual Child abuse rolls-on.

In New York, students have been allowed to skip school with the blessing of Mayor de Blasio, who said in a tweet, “we have ten years to save the planet. New York stands with our young people, they’re our conscience.”

According to The New York Times, 1,000 students from Beacon High School in Hell’s Kitchen plan to attend the march — almost two-thirds of the student body.

But while students will get a free pass, the city announced earlier this week that teachers won’t be allowed to participate in the march with their students because it would constitute a political activity.

Disappointed teachers said they’d been planning for months to attend with younger students as chaperones and now many of those students won’t be able to participate. Younger students also have permission to skip school but need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian to leave class.” [NY Daily News] also [NY Daily News]

Are we really this gullible?

Do Americans really believe that the Free Market and individualism is the villain?

What happened to intelligent debate?

The future, it is a terrible thing to waste.

Free Speech Assault! Tell NYC Mayor de Blasio “We Won’t Pay the Fine!”

SAY NO TO Mayor Bill de Blasio and his FREE SPEECH POLICE!

DSC_9170.jpg
October 7, 2019. 5 pm. outside NY City Hall. A protest was planned in support of Free Speech.

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio wants to impose fines of up to $250k on New Yorker’s for using the term”Illegal Alien” If this isn’t enough, he also wants to legislate that we cannot tell “Illegal Aliens” to speak in English, in an English Speaking United States! He also suggests that reporting “Illegals Aliens” to ICE is a Hate Crime.” Tell Bill How You feel! We support LEGAL Immigration. [Face Book]

This was a great idea for a protest so I headed downtown to City Hall, looking forward to challenging Mayor de Blasio and his Marxist/Socialist Free Speech fines; fines that diminish our rights as American Citizens. The message, tell “Red Bill” de Blasio: WE Won’t Pay!

The city’s Commission on Human Rights releases a new 29-page directive …

The directive reads “‘Alien’ — used in many laws to refer to a ‘non-citizen’ person — is a term that may carry negative connotations and dehumanize immigrants, marking them as ‘other,’…The use of certain language, including ‘illegal alien’ and ‘illegals,’ with the intent to demean, humiliate, or offend a person or persons constitutes discrimination.”

The directive goes on to list several examples of acts and comments that would run afoul of the restrictions, including harassing people over their accents or grasp of English, or wielding the threat of a call to Immigration and Customs Enforcement as a tool of hate. [de Blasio Fine]

When de Blasio ran for Mayor, NYC was warned he had a love affair with Cuba and Marxism; a warning ignored. (see presser from 2013)


Now, in his second term, the Marxist/Socialist list has grown. However, missing from the on-line list, Margaret Chin and Ydanis Rodriguez. And previous city council members, elected to other jobs, Jumaane Williams, now Public Advocate and Letitia James, now Attorney General of NY State: Movin’ on up.

And ….  it’s worse State wide. That’s why we were here today, to focus on the de Blasio free speech assault. But, finding the Mayor de Blasio protest was a challenge. After a 30 minute search, I located some activity, but it was a Trump 2020 rally.

DSC_7412.jpg Not what was promoted. Not what I came for.  As I headed back up town, I found one “We Won’t Pay” protestor, Karen from Yad Yamin. On Message!

Mayor de Blasio “We Won’t Pay” was a great idea for a protest since the socialist machine intends to remake our governments, local and national. Venezuela. Cuba. Fighting back, even locally, is very important. I’m here for you, President Trump, but today was supposed to be about Mayor de Blasio’s socialist harassment and fines against free speech. Maybe next time.

FREE SPEECH threatened by Mayor Bill de Blasio.
We Must Fight back …
STOP Mayor de Blasio and his assault on Free Speech!

Protest Roger Waters’ anti-Semitic Film in Times Square, “US + THEM”

Yad Yamin NY announced there was “No time for Silence” as Pink Floyd legend, Jew-Hater, Roger Waters, held a nationwide two-day release of his anti-Semitic movie, “Us + Them”. Waters has spent years spreading his anti-Semitic messages across the world but, No More. Yad Yamin said, ” It’s time we let him know we’re NOT going to take it as we resist his message of hate! #JewsFightBack

 Yad Yamin is a grassroots Zionist movement dedicated to exposing, addressing and confronting people and organizations like Roger Waters and this blatant anti-Zionist slander. It has become too common for these leftist celebrities to get “a pass’ for their hate-mongering since the main-stream media supports anti-Semitism. But, Yad Yamin decided “No More” as they promoted protests in California & Florida, as well as New York, with their message:Jews will NOT be silent any more!”

Of course, Pink Floyd fans were on hand, hoping for some magical, madness.

Flickr Slide Show starts with a couple of Mayor deBlasio’s homeless as I walked to the movie theatre protest.

Short video of Yad Yamin’s Roger Waters protest in Times Square.

What follows is anti-Zionist agit-prop from Roger Waters’ film promo for “Us + Them” as well as a review: Venice Film Review: ‘Roger Waters Us + Them’

“It is both a film and concert, ending with a spoken-word plea for justice for “our brothers and sisters in Palestine” who, in Waters’ telling, live under Israel’s deeply repressive apartheid regime.

In today’s politically polarized culture, criticizing both Trump and Israel risks leaving a whole lot of money on the table in terms of concert revenue and DVD and streaming sales. But this is “Us + Them’s” primary achievement, one that should not be blithely dismissed in this PC era: Although Waters is sometimes aggravating and occasionally trouble-making, he is, to re-purpose a lyric from “Breathe,” not afraid to care. “Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way,” sings the band’s David Gilmour stand-in, guitarist Jonathan Wilson, in the Pink Floyd classic “Time.” It is not, thank goodness, Roger Waters’ way.”

Anti-Semitism Protest. “Name It. Fight it” at NY City Hall

Sunday. September 22, 2019. At Noon rally gathered outside New York’s City Hall Park to condemn anti-Semitic attacks that have been increasing dramatically in the city. Former Assemblyman Dov Hikind said “I’m asking the mayor to declare a state of emergency here in New York with regard to anti-Semitism.”
Usually, the Marxist groups like Rise and Resist ignore protests supporting Israel. However, today, I saw a couple of Rise-Resisting Marxists join the crowd. I know this because one yarmulked fellow was wearing a “Rise and Resist” T-shirt.
He was joined by a masked female comrade with a mission: she blew SMOKE at the crowd, harassment was key. Unfortunately, the inexperienced crowd was easy prey for the agitator.
They began yelling at the interloper. One woman spit (poor form) and another managed in-the-face fake coughing.
They could have ignored the agitator but today’s meme was “Jews Fight Back” encouraging a nose-to-nose confrontation to burst from within the crowd.“I am a Jew” was heard coming from the instigator as the police removed him from the rally.
As for the actual protest, the demonstrators slammed politicians, the media and even fellow Jews for not caring more about the hateful incidents. Good points. And even though Rise and Resist “Blew Smoke” at the rally, that harassment was confronted, for better or worse, as Jews Fought Back!It was a successful protest with a good turn out, check it out in the Flickr slide show and 4 short videos

Some closing words from The Geller Report: “Demonstrators call for a state of emergency over rising antisemitism in NYC” [Geller Report]

“Under Mayor de Blasio’s incompetent leadership, New York City has become unsafe for Jews. If these attacks were occurring against any other ethnic group de Blasio would be calling in the National Guard.

Perhaps de Blasio is reluctant to protect New York’s Jewish citizens, out of fear of angering his hard-Left constituents? Or maybe de Blasio is just another Jew-hating Leftist?

Demonstrators slammed politicians, the media and even fellow Jews for not caring more about the hateful incidents ….  Mayor de Blasio (needs) to take sweeping action to stop the trend.

“I’m asking the mayor to declare a state of emergency here in New York with regard to anti-Semitism,” Former Assemblyman Dov Hikind said.” [1010wins]

Mr. Mayor, are you back in town? It’s your move…. Listen and LEARN.
