Go-Topless Day hosted by the Raelians. August 26, 2016. An expose on a movement. An organization. (a religion?)

This is not my usual posting, with lots of visuals, instead I’ve done my best to make it as inoffensive as possible, with links to my uncensored pics and vids posted at the end of this article.

FIRST some Q and A

Q: Why post this at all?

A: There’s a cultural phenom to be witnessed.

A disintegration of propriety that appears generation after generation. The arrogance of youth, perhaps.

Q. Is it?

A: Not from the aggregate ages at Columbus Circle. There were many representatives of the older but not necessarily “wiser” generation who happily bared their chests (breasts)

Q: What was most obviously achieved by this glut of female public nudity? Were our minds set-free?

A: Not likely. Oogling Males. (some even managed selfies). The mad crush of cameras (male and female) It felt so prurient aka salacious, voyeuristic and lewd (don’t ‘cha think?)

Q: Go-Topless Day. Is this representative of our ‘better selves”, this bridging of the generation gaps, to which our 21st Century society – our western culture – should aspire?

A: Due to the ages on display – I think not. Their bare-breasted elders grasping at their long-lost youth on Go-Topless Day. For the others, it was a New Wave awakening. A day when they became the willing Fools and Tools of the Raelian Movement. A conglomerate of foolish exhibitionism; unsightly and laughably irrelevant.

ARE THEIR LAWS regarding public nudity (aka decency) that protect the right to female public nudity (State by State)? Are there any “public decency” bills that resurface on occasion?

Found one Bill in CA at BillTrack50

screen-shot-2016-09-24-at-12-16-06-pmSo, onward to the WHO, WHAT and WHY of this event.

First, why here? This is NYC where Going Topless is LEGAL! Times Square has become a repository for many industrious exhibitionists. Desnudas-the Naked Grandma & Cowgirl – the Zucotti Park “Occupy Wall Street”(pre-school “teacher”). I have come across these different examples of New York’s legal public nudity and photographed them all. At first I thought they were breaking public decency laws. NOPE. And the TOURISTS seem to LOVE it. (Especially the adolescent boys) SO, what’s the point?

The Go Topless Movement claims they speak for women worldwide who have not yet gained the LEGAL right to “FREE their Breasts. FREE their Minds.”  Glad we cleared that up.

Some might ask, “WHAT is the Raelian topless movement?”

Or, since they challenge Christianity and the morés of the West, “WHY no mention of ISLAM?” As they urged the prudes-of-the-west to ‘strip off your bras’, “What of the 52 Muslim countries?”

Would public nudity be allowed in any of these Muslim countries?

If you take uncovered meat and put it on the street, on the pavement, in a garden, in a park or in the backyard, without a cover and the cats eat it, is it the fault of the cat or the uncovered meat?” the Grand Mufti of Australia said. “The uncovered meat is the problem.”

The Grand Mufti wasn’t discussing cats or meat. He was talking about gang rapes by fourteen Muslim men. “If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would have occurred,” he said.

Islamists […] encourage Muslim men to carry out assaults on non-Muslim women who don’t comply with Islamic law.” – Daniel Greenfield

The Raelian hosts of Go-Topless Day. In the video below, we hear from the main Raelian, a French dude: Claude Vorlihon (a.k.a. Rael).

Rael says, “following what was an extraterrestrial encounter in December 1973, he formed the Raëlian Movement and changed his name to Raël (allegedly meaning “messenger of the elohim”)… he claims (to have had) an encounter with a being called Yahweh in 1973.[5″ 

He (they) believe something akin to Scientology – the alien “colonizing earth” meme.

And somehow this lead the Raelians  to “FREE THE BREASTS – FREE THE MIND”.

In other videos at Rael TV,  Rael teaches that much of world’s ills can be repaired by NOT treating women’s breasts as sex objects.

So, by making public FEMALE bare-breasted nudity LEGAL we will put an end to the oogling of the male animal who, when catching even a glimpse of the naked female breast, often just has to oogle.

Once female nudity is universally permitted society will reach some higher plateau and NO OOGLING will prevail. [I’ve got some swampland for sale if you buy-in to this theory]

Back to Go-Topless Day 2016 (NYC). The bare-breasted female protestors were SAFELY within the police barricades, where an equally odd assortment of males were mixing with the women (of all ages and sizes). A crowd-crush of leering and oogling surrounded them. Not anyone’s proudest moments, perhaps BUT, we are told this day was one small step in releasing women from the bonds of Western-CHRISTIAN shaming.

About those male participants who went bare-chested (though I found a couple who preferred bras) many were elderly males – probably gay- and in many different bare-chested modes.

Diversity ruled.

The seemingly straight-men were either the photographers OR on the sidewalk side of the barricades, surrounded by many, many Asians (male & female).


And across 58th street were a few Latino and Arab types.


I saw some (probably straight) males who managed to slip into the press area (some to take selfies), but they were ferreted out (no press creds) and made to exit back to the SAFE side of the barricades.

Everyone had their cameras held high with NO gawking allowed unless there was a barricade to keep them at bay.


As for the distaff participants, there was also much diversity. The pretty women. Young thin. Thinking this ridiculous parade to be an enlightened moment in their lives: Okay. Sure. The mistakes of youth.(And, yes, with so many police at hand, no one was getting hurt.)

But,for the larger breasted and much older ladies, “Put your shirt on” could have been asked of more than just a few ….

+++ Is this really a U.S. Constitutional moment? +++

The Raelian Movement (rael.org)  claims that denying FEMALE public nudity is against the Constitution. (No example was giving of where this is written.

They also claim to be 64,000 strong, this Raelian “religion”. Founded by Frenchman Claude Vorlihon (a.k.a. Rael), they believe humans were created 25,000 years ago by aliens using genetic engineering and that genetic engineering holds the key to eternal life.

SO, these bare-breasted women and the Raelian Revelations, that’s all we need for a happy life. Who would’ve thought that the “pursuit of happiness” could be so “simple”.

Women of the World, Rise up! FREE your Breasts. FREE your MINDS! The rest of us should ‘take heed, ’cause they’re probably coming to a college near you, REAL soon.

Au revoir!

A bit more on the Raelian Movement and a snippet from the NY Post report on the Topless march:

“In honor of Women’s Equality Day the GO TOPLESS PRIDE PARADE 2016 (in its ninth year) was held worldwide.

For all those willing to bring their diversity and unique twist to a Topless Rights Parade for Gender Equality in the Big Apple !!

Vorlihon (their fearless leader) claims that aliens… commissioned him to prepare humans for the second coming of their extraterrestrial creators by teaching a message of sexual freedom and eternal life through science… and he encourages women to go even further, to take charge of this planet!”

When I arrived, I knew nothing about the Raelian Sponsorship but, I knew something (or someone) was connected, as I saw this disturbing symbol on t-shirts and necklaces walking amongst the parade participants.

The current official symbol of the Raelian Movement is a hexagram intertwined with a right-facing swastika.”

“This is a symbol that Rael saw on the Elohim spaceship. As a point of note, a very similar symbol can be seen on some copies of the Tibetan Book of the Dead, where a swastika sits inside two overlapping triangles. Starting around 1991, this symbol was often replaced by a variant star and swirl symbol as a public relations move, particularly toward Israel.

However, the Raelian Movement has now re-adopted the original version as their official symbol. Raelians argue that the banning of the swastika because of its Nazi connections would be like banning the Christian cross because the Klu Klux Klan used to burn them as symbols of their own hate.”

As the parade marched down Broadway (to 48th), and then across to the UN, I made another observation: I think THESE are Bernie’s People. Sure, some will vote for “Hilda”, but this ‘ain’t her people” (or “The Donald’s”).

A cross-section of what’s gone deeply wrong with our culture.

Gullible Leftards lead by a French Raelian, who offers Eternal Life compliments of Alien Geneticists.

PLEASE RUN ! Don’t walk to the ballot box on Nov 8. G-d save us all from these cultural absurdities. Our future depends on it.

The NY Post captured a fatuous comment from one of the nubile participants:

While the publicly naked female nipple has been legal in New York since 1992, the Go Topless Parade is intended to honor “women’s equal rights to go topless in public.

…those who opted to doff their tops — many taking part in the rally noted the crowds were mostly made of up gawking men and creeps with cameras.

“We’re not here for everyone’s entertainment, we’re not here to get our pictures taken. We’re here to show that this is normal and that it’s legal to have your top off in New York City as a woman,” said visibly upset lab tech Elyse Scarpino, a 26-year-old from New Jersey.

“I thought it was gonna be a little more progressive and less men just ogling at you.”

“I don’t see any respect here, I just see people pointing their—” Scarpino was interrupted mid-sentence by another man trying to shove his camera toward her breasts.” – NY Post

Illegal Migrants Reclaim “Dignity” – Trump Tower 8/31/16

Proudly they proclaimed: Eight Cosecherxs (eros) were able to block Trump Tower, imagine what we can accomplish with 11 million.[Facebook photo attribution]

Our brave Cosecheras and Cosecheros

“Even though 24hours in NYC jail was unpleasant I felt incredibly lucky to have the support of this crew, and so thankful for all the support we had on the outside. Special thanks to Catalina Adorno for legal coordination, Nataly Castaño Vélez for calling and reassuring my parents that everything was fine, Roberto Juarez for picking up your phone at all hours, Carlos Saavedra Diaz for excellent police liaisoning, Vera Parra for being an incredible media coordinator, and to Fhatima Paulino for sending love and guidance from afar and for managing our social media media accounts while we were locked up, and to so many others who worked tirelessly to make sure we had everything we needed. ” (Always over-reaching)

What follows are STATEMENTS FROM the COSECHERXS  [arrest photos property of George A. Adorno, Erik McGregor and Cosecha Facebook  / Built By Us]

“I am engaging in this civil disobedience to honor my parents’ labor. My parents are one of the most vulnerable workers in this country– they’re farm workers. We migrated from Oaxaca, Mexico to Homestead, Florida in 2005. The experience of the undocumented workers that worked on Trump Tower is parallel to the experience of my parents who work hard under the sun for a mediocre salary. Donald Trump and his supporters don’t recognize the dependency this economy has on hands of working immigrants. I am getting arrested because I know that my parents aren’t the only ones who struggle because they don’t have permanent protection, dignity, and respect. I want to send a message to our community: we will not stand with Trump’s rhetoric of hatred and racism. His ideology is a threat to my family, to me, to 11 million people. The time is now to stand against hate and racism.”

“My parents grew up in New York City, both from Puerto Rican immigrant families. Because we are Puerto Rican my family never had to live with the fear and uncertainty of not having papers but they did have to learn to adjust to life in a different language, culture and country. Growing up in Western, MA I saw the disrespect my mom faced at her job in a doctor’s office. Everyday when she came home from work I saw the powerlessness she felt in the face of mistreatment and her inability to leave her job for fear of not getting another. This daily dehumanization wore our family down. I know this is just a tiny sliver of the injustice, disrespect and mistreatment that immigrant families face in this country every day. I’m getting arrested with Cosecha today because I want all immigrants, children of immigrants and grandchildren of immigrants to know that we don’t have stay silent and watch our families and our communities face mistreatment. We are here to demand dignity for our entire community from my mom, to the undocumented workers who build Trump Tower, to the farm workers who picked the apple I ate for breakfast this morning.”

Maria Fernanda Cabello, Lives in Frederick, Md, From Hermosillo, Mexico

When I saw the headlines that Trump started his campaign by saying “When Mexico sends its people, they are not sending their best” I became upset not by Trump, but by all his supporters that came out and agreed with him. It reminded me of the story of this country. Countless times I have seen racist and xenophobic people treat my family and people like us like we are less deserving because we are immigrants and undocumented. I am getting arrested today because I want to make a statement that you cannot talk down on immigrants while benefiting from our labor. I am getting arrested so that more immigrants join Cosecha and fight against this hateful narrative and to win permanent protection, dignity and respect for immigrants in this country. I want more people to join harvest and fight with us against the anti-immigrant sentiment, so that we can get permanent protection, dignity and respect for our undocumented community.”

adjusted-14114917_1038375916257711_2171830339732725633_o-copyFive years ago, I made a promise to myself and the immigrant community that I was going to fight for us the way they fought for me. That was the same day that the DREAM Act failed on the Senate floor. I had driven all the way down from New Jersey the night before, only to watch the votes come in against me, my community, our future. I saw everyone. The disappointment. The pain. I promised to never allow this pain to come to my community ever again. For five years, I failed to complete my promise and it has eaten at me and bothered me. Especially now. Now, we have the opportunity to start things up again, to take a step towards completing my promise. I’ve realized I’ve been trying to keep this promise by myself so I have to do something that reactivates my community so we can fight together, just like we did in 2010. So I want to tell our community: I need your help. I can’t do this alone anymore.”

 Emily Bloch –  From Brookline, Massachusetts

“It deeply bothers me to live in a country that does not remember its own history. My family came here as Jewish Immigrants from Eastern Europe almost 100 years ago. We came looking for a better life and fleeing persecution just like the 200 undocumented Polish workers that built Trump Tower. I stand with immigrants now because it does not serve this country to have a class of exploited workers who live in perpetual insecurity. I stand with immigrants now, in this civil disobedience, because the people close to my heart can’t get arrested. During this action, I will be thinking of Sonia, an undocumented woman from Peru, who has not seen her children in 12 years. She sees me as one of her children, but it pains me to know that she can’t give her own kids a hug. On her 12th year anniversary of her leaving her country, I called her and we cried on the phone together. We cried because of how deeply we value our relationship, and I cried because I didn’t want to be her substitute child– I want her to see her own children. I want to tell the immigrant community that there’s hope, you have power, and you have allies. This country needs this movement.”

Phoebe Gardener – Lives in Providence, Rhode Island

“I have been organizing immigrant workers for 5 years and I have seen the pain of not being valued because of your status. I’ve seen the pain of working so hard, but not getting paid. The pain of not being treated as a full person. I am engaging in this nonviolent civil disobedience to say that we will not longer accept the pain anymore. I want to show my support and love for the undocumented workers across the country. I am also doing this because of the undocumented people who are making a sacrifice by my side during this action. I want to tell the immigrant community that I will be here until the strike– we are not going anywhere. I see you– I see the sacrifices that you make, the work you do, and I want to honor you. It’s time to do something bigger than we’ve ever done before to make this country recognize that this country relies on you.”

Thaís Marques – Lives in Newark, New Jersey, From Belém, Brazil

“My parents are legal permanent residents, my brother is a citizen and I’m undocumented. I recently had my application for a green card rejected. I sent in the application a week before my 21st birthday, but United States Customs and Immigration Services (USCIS) has the right to be discretionary about their decided that because I applied so close to my birthday I no longer qualified as a minor. Living in a country where decisions about my future are all discretionary, is suffocating. Living here without any rights is suffocating. I’m tired of feeling like I don’t have any control over my future.”

There you have it. Eight very entitled ILLEGAL migrants (and friends) . Chained. Chanting their Lies. Claiming ILLEGALS BUILT Trump Tower!

Trump Tower was built by 200 low wage, undocumented immigrant workers. 35 years later, our people continue to work in fields, construction sites, restaurants, and other industries for less than minimum wage without any dignity or respect. Join us as we honor the undocumented workers who built this tower, but also the workers who continue to build this country.”

WRONG.

In fact, a union lawsuit against the contractor was for pension and welfare benefits for 200 POLISH illegals who were hired to TEAR DOWN the Bonwit Teller Department store, not the CONSTRUCTION of the Tower.

Critical COMMENT made on-line to rebut the Cosecheros :

Built by us? Unless you helped build it with your own hands you have no right saying that. You have no right taking credit for the hard work of Americans and immigrants. Immigrants are and always have been welcome here. Shame on you for trying to equate immigrants with illegal aliens.

++ In these two short video clips, the illegals proudly twist the narrative. VIDEO #1-  I caught snippets of two press interviews.

 Carlos Saavedra Diaz – speaking to NBC: “Once again, the hypocrisy of the message of anti-immigrant racism that Donald Trump has supported, while this building was itself and his hotel in D.C. has been built on the hands and the work of undocumented (aka ILLEGAL) immigrants (MIGRANTS)

Q- What’s going on in front of the door?

” In front of the door we have people that are willing to get arrested, they’re here and in solidarity with this movement- and they’re trying to show that this  (?) messaging, this (?) racist,hateful messaging you can’t send” (HUH?)

Q: What do you hope to accomplish then.

“We’re hoping to accomplish, to recognize the labor of  “undocumented immigrants” that it took to build this country. Took to build Trump’s Tower which is called the most important project in the world  and what it took to build his hotel in D.C.”

Q: (chanting begins again)

“Undocumented workers” have always been misrepresented. We don’t have enough voices (very loud chanting)

Young female (unidentified) gave some of the correct historical background re the demolition of Bonwit Teller (before construction)

“Donald Trump is a hypocrite because he (has used) hate rhetoric against immigrants while (pointing skyward) this tower, before it was built, was demolished by over 200 “undocumented” Polish workers 35 years ago…”

In VIDEO #2,  illegal protestor, Tais Marques, spoke while chained  at the Tower Doors.

Thaís Marques (Cosecha protestor while chained to door) ” My name is Thaís Marques. I am “undocumented”. I am a daughter of legal, permanent residents. My brother is a U.S.  citizen. I am here today to honor the 200 “undocumented” workers who worked on the tower and the 11 million (where do they get these numbers?) “undocumented” who built this. This country DEPENDS on US. (unclear) This country, this economy would FALL. This country depends on us.”

++So. Yes. It was a Peaceful Protest. The “Cosecha EIGHT”  (the 4 chained and 2 each foot-blocking the revolving doors) calmly executed their plan. NO one was getting IN or OUT of the doors (for about an hour). But, the NYPD’s plan was tight, as well: To clear the entrance – from all sides – making it difficult to get good pictures due to the ‘crowd cover’ of police bodies .

71st Anniv. Hiroshima / Nagasaki (No Nukes Now!) Apology Press Conf.

August 5, 2016. NYC. The 71st Annual “Apology Press Conference”, outside the Japanese Consulate.

nagasaki 1
The hard-core Leftists demanded that the American Government, and the American people, apologize for dropping the A-bombs on Hiroshima & Nagasaki in August of 1945.Apologize for Taking Action, a PEACE Action, to end four years of a brutal war in the Pacific; a war that had no end in sight.

https://i0.wp.com/history105.libraries.wsu.edu/fall2015/wp-content/uploads/sites/7/2015/08/figure-2.png

A WAR that started, for the U.S., when the Imperial Japanese forces attacked the United States at Pearl Harbor (without warning) on Dec 7, 1941, “A Day that will live in Infamy“.

By 1945, it took the bombing of Hiroshima & Nagasaki to put an end to not four, but actually eight years of the Japanese War in the Pacific. After the bombs were dropped VJ Day came quickly. WW II was finally OVER! Peace was now possible.

Yet, according to these “pacifists”, dropping the A-bombs on Japan was an
unnecessary, evil act; “a catastrophic wrong”. NUKES were NOT the ANSWER.

[Follow Link for Google Doc of “Why Truman Dropped The Bomb”]

Fact: the Imperial Japanese war-machine was the aggressor in that horrid war. But, the hard-core AMERICAN Leftist/Progs were laser-focused on the U.S. only: “America must Apologize!”
Did the Japanese press, reporting on Hiroshima & Nagasaki, acknowledge their country’s deliberate actions in December of ’41, that lead to those fateful days in August of ’45?

Perhaps not, since they were only able to interview the very anti-American Leftists and the American press was a no-show, 
No one on-hand to challenge the lies. The facts, history be damned.

“… from the invasion of China in 1937 to the end of World War II.  The Japanese military regime murdered near 3,000,000 to over 10,000,000 people, most probably almost 6,000,000 Chinese, Indonesians, Koreans, Filipinos, and Indochinese, among others, including Western prisoners of war.”

In speech after speech, “NO one should have a nuclear bomb”: China, Russia. NoKo. Pakistan. India. France. the U.K., the U.S. …. But….
What about IRAN?  If only there had been some protestors like this man at   a pro-Israel/ anti-Nuclear Iran Rally in 2015. Nope. Not this day in 2016 [Cue choir of crickets]
Each delusional speaker outside the Japanese Consulate focused on the U.S. joining those countries that have disarmed or simply don’t have Nukes (yet).  13962698_1262222527129312_1089117670503828218_nDefense is a Crime. Peace through Disarmament! No Nukes. No Way. No How!

In the spirit of “NO MORE WAR”, there were plenty of hootenanny songs, as well as speeches. “Gonna lay down my sword and shield.” Okay. “Ain’t gonna study war no more, no more.” Again, okay….

And pithy anti-war memes.War is the Defeat of Humanity”, “WAR is NEVER the Answer”, “Peace Demands Action”, “Make Food Not War” , “BE HUMAN” and Apologize!

The most dynamic religion of the last hundred years has been leftism. Not Christianity and not Islam. Leftism.

Leftism has taken over the world’s leading educational institutions, the world’s news media, the world’s popular entertainment, and it has influenced Christianity (and Judaism) far more than Christianity (or Judaism) has influenced anything.

The pithiness continued with, People apologize cause governments can’t. It’s complicated.”, “DISARM NOW! followed closely by …. APOLOGIZE!         The speakers were introduced by Rachel Clark: Interpreter, global coordinator and a volunteer staff member of Peace Boat US New York office. From Pax Christi, Sisters, Gwen, Jean and RoseMarie Pace; Kate Alexander, PANYS (Peace Action NY State); Alice Slater, Nuclear Age Peace Foundation, a woman from the Granny Peace Brigade and a 2nd generation Hibakusha (survivor), Miss Miyako Taguchi.
Ms. Taguchi was presented with letters and flowers by the two Pax Christi Sisters, Jean and Gwen, and from Veterans For Peace, Dr. Tom Fasy, MD, a board certified pathologist with a longstanding interest in uranium toxicology.
In the Video Playlist, t
he transcribed statements of the speakers are placed under each video at you tube. [the street noise was not always helpful due to lunch-hour cars honking]

From the very wise, Dr. Thomas Sowell:CpzPWflUIAAHj63.jpg_largeYes, ending barbarism required force. And, at war’s end, the terms of surrender, Article 9, required that the Japanese Imperial war-machine DISARM.

Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution (日本国憲法第9条 Nihonkokukenpō dai kyū-jō ?) is a clause in the national Constitution of Japan outlawing war as a means to settle international disputes involving the state. The Constitution came into effect on May 3, 1947, following World War II.

But, even the strongly worded Article 9 has gone through some changes, 70 years later, making the “pacified” Left most unhappy.

Article 9 has been re-interpreted to allow for “collective self-defense.”Japanese forces will now be able to assist the U.S. and other allies if those allies were attacked, although there would still be limits on the scope and scale of Japanese assistance …. that Japan could now shoot down a North Korean missile fired at the U.S. and provide logistical support to South Korea if Pyongyang invaded, but could not deploy Japanese troops to Korea.

Today, 71 years after the A-bombs were dropped, the Japan of the 20th and 21st century seems to be much the better for the U.S. ending that brutal war.  But, such facts revealed can be oh, so inconvenient. (click picture to enlarge the protest mega-statement)nagasaki 2Should the A-bomb, the Nuclear Bomb, never have been created? Is it possible to rid the world of Nuclear power now that it exists? Are Nuclear Bans possible? Wise? Necessary?

A Pointless Anti-Nuclear Gesture

The paradox of nukes is that they are weapons of cataclysmic destructive force at the same time that they have proven to be a guarantee of peace. As the strategist Bernard Brodie wrote at the dawn of the nuclear age: “Thus far the chief purpose of our military establishment has been to win wars. From now on its chief purpose must be to avert them.” It is thanks in part to the advent of nuclear weapons that we have averted the total wars between great powers that made the first half of the 20th century a vast killing field. The paradox of nukes is that they have proven to be a guarantee of peace.

Our allies are freaked out about the prospect of no first use. They have long relied on our nuclear umbrella, and if it is being pulled back, countries like South Korea and Japan will need to reconsider their decisions to forswear nuclear weapons. This is why no first use would contradict President Obama’s opposition to nuclear proliferation, and make Global Zero — the disarmament movement’s goal of a world free of nuclear weapons — even more of a pipe dream.

After decades of indoctrination by the Howard Zinn/Bill Ayers/Saul Alinsky-John Deweys, can we hope to take back our schools? Our media? Our governments.

Or is it too late to repair our collective psyche? Their Mission Accomplished: “America Bad.” Period.
Come November, Can America “Hope to be Great Again”? us_flag_make_america_great_again_banner-r002282b5c5274cbfa7d92dfdc00b0762_jjzey_324                               The Future.  It’s a terrible thing to waste.

“Stop the Guns & Hate” anti-Trump Protest NYC (7-18-16)

Monday. July 18, 2016. 5 pm.
As the Republican National Convention gathered in Cleveland, a misguided (and deluded) gay protest hit the sidewalks outside NYC’s Trump Towers (again)

This is their Face Book Manifesto:
press info 2
However, a summer downpour, just before 5 pm, kept the sidewalks protest-bare (briefly)
It did not keep them or the press away for long. The protestors soon arrived, marching towards us from the south. However, Trump Towers and the NYPD had decided there would be NO sidewalk marchers obstructing the entrance to Trump Tower.
A few took their banners inside the holding pens. But, clearly, Trump Towers had enough of the sidewalk crunch.
This time the sidewalk circle-of-signs gathered on the west-side of Fifth Avenue. It was Prada’s turn to deal with the mess. Round and round they go.
As long as you keep moving, in the city, you are NOT “blocking” the sidewalk.

Tell that to the pedestrians who had to weave their way ’round the umbrellas, bodies and signs of this protest.
As for the protest main theme: STOP THE GUNS. STOP THE HATE.
That and a few other catchy one-note memes are their metier.
SO is their P.C. naivete.
The boogie-man must be TRUMP and those evil Repubs.
No awakening – no epiphanies regarding the Islamic Jihadis who murder GAYS, Christians, Jews and Infidels world-wide.

NOPE. Does NOT compute (hands to ears- lalalala)6a00d8341c60bf53ef017c382ceb5c970b-600wiThey insist – It’s Guns that kill. (Not people) Screen Shot 2016-07-18 at 2.56.20 PM copyWell, not some people. Their “factoids” insist the GOP and the NRA, are more ‘evil’ than Satan …..
And NOW (oh, horrors) “The Donald” is the Republican Presidential Candidate.
As we move-on to the Demon-Crat Convention and the Hildabeast’s coronation, many of these protestors were/are avid Berni-files (some might even be die-hard Elizabeth Warren apostles) 
Will we hear any squeaks or squawks re “Hilda” as they become unwilling “Clintonistas”?
YES! It is happening. Even now. In Philly. With her history, how can it not.
(Check out the documentary,  “Clinton Cash”)

Even so, the Clintonistas insist: We have NOTHING to FEAR – NO One – Except “The Donald”, the GOP and the NRA. G.A.G has spoken!

These foolish protestors fear brave Americans like  Pamela Geller who spoke at the RNC / LGBT event in Cleveland.

And Peter Thiel, an early investor in Facebook and a co-founder of PayPal, who announced onstage at the Republican National Convention that he is gay. To the LGBT – G.A.G. protestors Theil is a turncoat.

“Every American has a unique identity. I am proud to be gay. I am proud to be a Republican. But most of all, I am proud to be an American,” Thiel said, to applause.

G-d save us ALL from the misguided ignorati of the Gay Lobby. (PLEASE)

al-Quds” 2016 Times Sq [7-1-16] a month of jihad-hell

I begin this post two weeks after al Quds Day. July 14 – Bastille Day- 2016 . July has been a horrid month for the world-wide jihad. A terrorism that knows no end. These orthodox Muslims plot endlessly to kill the infidels, yet we never see it coming. https://d.ibtimes.co.uk/en/full/1533480/nice-attack.jpg?w=400

Domestic Terrorism. BLM. New Black Panthers. CAIR. Muslim Brotherhood, anything Fakestinian and all groups Socialist and Communist. Creating chaos whether HERE or in Europe, the Middle East….or…in Israel. Death to the Infidel. Revolution of the worst kind is their goal.

Whose side are you on?israel-620x217 crop
Al Quds Day, 2016. Late afternoon, July 1.

Times Square. The arrogant “al-Quds” protestors have returned. Mostly Muslim with the usual Communist facilitators amongst the crowd.
They demand the END of the State of Israel. Masquerading as peaceful Muslims  while screaming “From the River to the Sea“. That is genocide, against the JEWS,  and there is NOTHING peaceful about genocide.
Their LIES
are many.
To begin with, there never was a Palestinian people. They have no history yet they claim the Holy Land belongs to Islam. Not just Jerusalem (al-quds), but also the hill country of Samaria and Judea“. It is NOT the West Bank.  But, facts are inconvenient as they accuse Israel (and the Jews) of murdering the hapless “Palestinian” Muslims.
And with the fraudulent “Nakba” meme 
They nurture a powerful anti-Israel and anti-Jewish animus with this LIE.
They usurp the  history of others.  A violent fraud supported by the Leftists and their comrades in the media and academe. The TRUTH is an inconvenient impediment. Destroy the State of Israel by any means.


BDS (Boycott, Divest and Sanction) , another of their LIES supports an Israeli economic boycott. They claim that Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East,  is “greedy, cruel and violent”.  Ignoring peaceful gestures , whether from a single Israeli citizen or the whole country. They are NOT interested in PEACE.


When I first arrived, everyone was setting up. The “Palis” and their Commie friends and the Pro-Israel supporters across avenue.
While taking pictures, I was approached by an older Muslim man. He asked my opinion on Jerusalem – aka al-Quds. He did NOT like my answer. Storming away angry telling me that “the JEWS have no claim. They came from Egypt.”  [They CAME from Egypt?]

Then Cyrus Mc Goldrick, former head of CAIR-NY, approached me with a very friendly “hello”. (he likes to do that)
I returned the pleasantries, asking if he was still living in Florida. Nope. He’s now in TURKEY. Istanbul. “Really?”, said I, as he replied, “It’s not as bad as you might think. Its quite nice.” And he moved on.

As for this protest, it was not a large protest by the usual al-Quds standards. But, loud. Of, course. They are always LOUD.
The ubiquitous genocidal chants [From the River to the Sea] AND the usual Commie facilitators: Bill Doares (Workers World) and Sarah Flounders of IAC (International Action Center). All, when not chanting, making VERY loud speeches.

[Video] a view from the al-Quds side of the avenue

The Pro-Israel side was on the west side of Seventh Ave. Lead by the very vocal ADL.

And their co-host, Congressional Candidate, Dr. Phillip  Rosenthal. 

Video of the Pro Israel side of the avenue

After about an hour, it started to rain, so I packed up my gear. But, as I left, I heard Doares and Flounders speaking(finally). Over an hour in to the protest,  NOW they start speaking….in the RAIN….. So, I used my smart phone voice-recorder. Not the best audio (due to rain and traffic) but enough that I was able to transcribe excerpts from their Communist RANTS. Angry, anti-U.S. and anti-Israel LIES. Agitprop they could spew in a coma. If you have never listened to them, Doares and Flounders, they are like a BAD movie, that needs to be heard.
We should never forget how hostile they are to everything that has made America and Israel great.

There was also a young Muslima poet and Cyrus McGoldrick, all the way from Turkey, just to M.C. al-Quds Day.

And the Neturei Karta who always confuse the passersby. That was it. Both sides shouting back and forth. And one fellow, from the Israeli side, Robert K., who spontaneously sprinted across the avenue to shake hands. To make a peaceful gesture. (apparently the officer said – NOT TODAY) as  he was ushered back to the west side of 7th. (ah well…at least he tried) Israel. Jerusalem. The Middle East. The LIES:  al-Quds (Jerusalem), al-Aqsa (aka the Temple Mount!), the Nakba (day of “catasrophe”)  Innocents die at the hands of the Islamic Terrorists emboldened by media support. Commie support. And the “good-will of fools”.  Will Truth ever prevail?

The audio transcripts – excerpted follow next.

Sara Flounders
(IAC)  (Excerpted to the end)

“…. the State of Israel that exists because of the support and defense and military aide of U.S. Imperialism. Life without it, Israel could not exist a day, not a minute without U.S. Imperialism, Zionism  would be a racist, rotten dream but not in fact, a …. State. 

Every country that stands for independent force, they want to destroy. And yet, they are failing. They’re failing on a world scale. The Boycott, Divest and Sanction movement shows that people all over the world are finding a way to shut down Zionist quotas, Zionist economy and it has huge support that has grown so strong that now they want to pass laws against it in violation of the U.S. Constitution, by the way. 

  So Gov. Cuomo and Gov. Christie and all these Zionist supporters, they want to make it illegal to support the BDS Movement. I tell ya, it’s gonna make the BDS movement stronger politically.

And the terrorists across the street, the Jewish Defense League, this is a terrorist organization. They for decades in Brooklyn, and in the West Bank and Israel… they are the racist forces that come right out of Brooklyn. They made war on the Black Community and on the Palestinian Community. (cheers from crowd) They want to shut down this movement and they’re the ones that are being shut down all over the world by our unity, by our strength, by our determination.

And why? Because the Palestinian people have shown resistance,  generation after generation, under the most damnable conditions. Under starvation. Under sanctions. They have resisted with every form of resistance, from the youngest to the oldest. So when we salute Palestine, we are giving a vote of confidence to the future. We are saluting resistance of all humanity. And together, together we will win. (cheers)”

 Bill Doares -Workers World Party and IAC (amongst many other Commie linked organizations)
[He SHOUTS everything]

“(July 1- NYC)  …  those were the words of Muhammad Ali,   who passed away a  few weeks ago, because he, like Malcolm X  and Nelson Mandela ( the U.N.) : Zionism is Racism. And that’s why it’s so good to see so many of these people, so many diverse communities of New York City, like around the world, coming out  on a holiday week end … in the rain… to stand with the people  of  Palestine, because Palestine means diversity. Just like New York City means diversity. 

those Nazis across the street, they’re from a group called the Jewish Defense League that was originally formed to  keep Black People out of Flatbush and these Black and Latino people out of the jury system and, to keep Black People from moving in to Forest Hills. They are Nazis. Today is a day of al- Quds Jerusalem. An International Day when  people around the word stand with the people of Palestine. Stand against Terrorism and Racism and Bigotry.

The State of Israel will mean nothing without the end(less) of flow of tax dollars [?stolen] from our communities, our schools, our hospitals and transportation system to pay for it. It’s in the hands of the giant U.S. Military Industrial Complex and the bankers of Wall Street, Zionists mostly. It is no wonder they support Donald Trump .

None of the racists understand Israel … not just because racists love racists and bigots love bigots. Not just because anyone who’s already done all that Donald Trump is promising to do: building walls to keep people out and warning people. Because native people in the land of Palestine, their ethnicity, from a racial pure society, if there can ever be such a thing. That’s because of Israel, the racist State of Israel and the giant military plan.

Stand with the people of Palestine [Crowds CHEERS]”

Muslima Poet –  this is an excerpt to the end (1:43)
“…Take each others hands. Let’s be smarter than the divide and conquer. For humanity we stand together. We stand stronger. And from the threats … dividing our strength and unity. So, let’s raise our fists to the sky. Where there’s no more pain to see.  Until the skies no longer bleed. In resistance we shall live, each of us stronger on our beliefs. And if in resistance we should die, our (souls) shall last for eternity. Our dreams be kept alive and the truth become plain for all to see.

One day our children will not die, and their blood will not spill upon the street. One day our mothers will not cry. When their sons and daughter will be free. One day the dream will be alive. One day we will march in victory.

 One day “Palestine will be Free”  From the River to the sea ( crowd) Palestine will be free. “Palestine will be Free”  From the River to the sea (crowd) Palestine will be free. “Palestine will be Free”  From the River to the sea (crowd) Palestine will be free. (enter Cyrus) FREE FREE Palestine!”

An addendum:

July 7,  from Friday July 1, to the next Thursday,  all hell broke loose in Dallas,Texas. A domestic act of terrorism that preceded Bastille Day by a week.

Photo- Maria R. Olivas/Special Contributor

The deadliest day for police since 9/11. I did not cover the massive street action (the Day of Rage protests)  as I have in the past. I’m too familiar with the arrogant hostility unleashed towards whites, sometimes , physically . Something I’ve experienced first-hand (Muslim, Black  and Commie hostilities) So, I decided to not add a white face to the planned chaos. (To be a target)  The police will be busy enough.

Obama and Company has left us  a racially divided country ready to explode. I fear we are too close to the fire.

Just last week I was assaulted by a 60 years old – healthy but small- black woman. She ran at me – like a foot ball player. Slammed her purse (it felt like sandpaper)  across my face. accusing me of getting in her way on the sidewalk. OK. This is NY. The sidewalks are crowded. But, this was a QUIET avenue and I was no where close to causing this woman a problem. She was crazy perhaps but, getting a purse slammed across your face, that is assault. Nasty. She yelled at me. Accusing me of doing something BLOCKING HER on the sidewalk (that was a bizarre accusation)  She remained very aggressive as she walked away, calmly  eating her ice cream sunday. Her ice cream unsullied.

Thanks Obama. Race. Division. Hostilities. Your legacy grows worse every day. BLM. Terrorists-at-large. Unchecked. Abusive. Intimidating. LETHAL. Tearing this country apart. Just as they planned all along. MLK’s dream torn asunder.

Can’t we all get along is NOT in their lexicon.

Church World Services “Rally for Refugee Re-Settlement” Columbus Circle (6-19-16)

WHAT: World Refugee Day 2016  – “Rally for Refugee Re-Settlement”

“Refugees Welcome Because One World ♥’s “

Location: Columbus Circle – NYC – June 19, 2016- 11 am
Event Name: Rally for Refugees
Organization: Church World Services “A Global Humanitarian Agency for The Vulnerable and the Displaced”  [CWS is the relief, development and refugee assistance arm of the National Council of the Churches of Christ]

“This June, dozens of communities across the United States gathered to celebrate (Muslim) refugees from California to Atlanta”

WHY: From  UNHCR  & the UN Refugee Agency

“In 2000, the United Nations General Assembly established June 20 as World Refugee Day to recognize and applaud the contribution of refugees throughout the world and to raise awareness about the growing refugee crisis …. celebrate World Refugee Day with an event, prayer service, or other activity.”

CWS asks you to  Join the Refugees Welcome Campaign

#WithRefugees petition will be delivered to UN headquarters in New York ahead of the UN General Assembly high-level summit to address large movements of (Muslim)refugees and migrants, on September 19, 2016.

**

The petition asks governments to help the (Muslim) refugees :

  • Ensure every refugee child gets an education.
  • Ensure every refugee family has somewhere safe to live.
  • Ensure every refugee can work or learn new skills to make a positive contribution to their community.

Statement by the President Obama on World Refugee Day (2016)

“Protecting and assisting refugees is a part of our history as a Nation and we will continue to alleviate the suffering of (Muslim) refugees abroad, and to welcome them here at home, because doing so reflects our American values and our noblest traditions as a Nation, enriches our society and strengthens our collective security.”

HOWEVER: Mercy. Compassion … Do unto others …. Western values. Anathema to Islam (it’s in the Quran)

                                         “The Infidels must Die!”

The Christian population in Iraq has now diminished to an alarming 50,000 to 250,000, compared with 1.4 million in 2003. They were either massacred by jihadists or abducted.

Christians have faced being forced to convert to Islam, pay a high living tax (jizya, mandated in the Qur’an) to the Islamic State, or abandon their ancestral homes. Many were enslaved or murdered.

Reverend Canon Andrew White, (aka “The Vicar of Baghdad”) known for his love of humanity, stated of Islamic State jihadists: “When I invited ISIL to dinner they said, ‘Yes, we’ll come, but we’ll chop off your head.’ Rather kind of them to warn me.”

The gentle and kind Reverend White … has witnessed the worst atrocities on the ground against his fellow Christians, minorities and Yazidi girls who are taken as sex slaves, and he finally declared:”

“I have looked through the Quran trying to find forgiveness… there isn’t any. If you find it, tell me. This makes it very difficult to talk to ISIS because they can show you quite clearly that it is what Allah wants. They can justify their position when Allah says you should combat and fight the infidel and they say, ‘Well, these are infidels.’ So the question is, how can you prove that these are not infidels? And you can’t.” [Jihad Watch]

YET, the misguided do-gooders at CWS preach-on ….

Overheard at Columbus Circle, a mother telling her young daughter (simplistically) that the purpose of the CWS event was to teach us “to be kind to all people”.  So… “Rebecca, Stands With Refugees”

The mother sees what she wants to see, the Happy (feel-good) Faces of dedicated (misguided) do-gooders: It’s World Refugee Day!


But, how kind is ignoring the Christian refugees while Muslim ‘refugees’ go to the head-of-the-line.

I watched. Took a few pictures. Knowing a dialogue about the Christian victims of Islam would be met with plastic smiles …. and silence…


But, one brave voice stood firmly in front of them- facing their table. His message perplexing for the do-gooder, as it does not compute, “Say NO to Refugees”

A message lacking nuance, perhaps, but they should have opened a door and talked with him. Instead, CWS holds firm. CWS is GOOD. Bringing Social Justice to the Muslim World.
That protestor is a BAD man. A Racist. Islamophobe. Bigoted. Hater. Ignore him. (hands to ears- lalalala)
CWS (CHRISTIAN World Service)
outreach goes first to Muslim “refugees” of Syria. To save them from “Islamophobia” .

That “One World – Social Justice” from CWS offers kindness, empathy,  Social Justice. (to some) The Christian Victims of Genocide must go to the back-of-the-line.
Protecting Muslim refugees comes FIRST because Muslims are “threatened  by imagined Islamophobia”

Within the United States, the welcome of (Muslim) Syrian refugees is being challenged. This type of fear-mongering (against Muslims) has no place in our society. People of all faiths must stand in solidarity with refugee and migrant communities.

BUT, are the “important and very needy” Muslim “refugees” properly vetted? (If at all). CWS claims they are.

 More from CWS as they Welcome the (Muslim) Syrian “Refugees”

IN CWS‘ OWN WORDS:

‘Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it.’
– Hebrews 13:2 (NRSV)

Join CWS in refugee resettlement – welcome arriving families as contributing members of our communities….

Take a collection to help Syrian refugee families cover basic expenses.

CWS will connect these funds with arriving Syrian families for housing, utilities and basic needs as well as CWS Syrian crisis advocacy.

Refugees often arrive with little more possessions than the clothing on their backs.

Collect the household goods one family will need to start a new life in the U.S.

Ship boxed items to a city across the U.S. … household items will be provided to arriving refugees from Syria, Burma, Iraq and other countries.

Located near a CWS resettlement office? Contact your local affiliate to serve as a welcome team or to find local volunteer and donation needs.

Sadly, CWS with holds aide to the Christians of the Middle East (and Yazidis, as well) slaughtered and enslaved throughout the 21st Century Muslim World.  It’s a puzzlement…

Which brings us to a WARNING From Refugee Resettlement Watch  on Church World Services and Federal Funding. [Posted by Ann Corcoran  January 7, 2016]

CHRISTIANS BEWARE of  the Social Justice Do-Gooders

If you are new to RRW, there are nine major federal refugee resettlement contractors (they call themselves Volags!) and Church World Service is one of them.

They are largely funded with your tax dollars!  And, it was Church World Service whose subcontractor Virginia Council of Churches first brought this whole secretive and costly resettlement program to my attention in 2007.

See my latest report on CWS at American Resistance 2016! where we tell you about how CWS is going to illegally hide aliens sought by ICE.

Don’t you think that, if they go forward with their announced plan and break federal law, their federal funds should be immediately cut off?

By the way, if the name Church World Service rings a bell for you locally.  Know that they might be raising funds from your church through their annual “Crop Walks!”

Crop walk

Their charitable work for hungry people is, in my view, just a cover for their political ambitions.

Church World Service member churches are here.  Be sure your church isn’t planning to hide those sought by ICE.

 (Also, from Refugee Resettlement Watch)

” Frankly, we have made a grievous error in taking the Muslim refugees, Somalis in particular, who have no intention of becoming Americans. They are here to change America. 

Unfortunately, political correctness and a worshipful attitude toward multiculturalism have blinded us.

It is my view, that the ‘diversity is strength’ line is way overused, and mostly hogwash.”

PDF – 2016 a Report on the Christian Genocide  [You can scroll through the embedded (detailed) PDF below ]

“Shouldn’t we first help the Christian victims of Mideast genocide? If we want to accept refugees in flight from Arab and Muslim war zones, why not start with the most persecuted victims?”

 Why not bring Christians and Yazidis from the Muslim world here first? Why not bring Muslim dissidents, ex-Muslims, and Muslim homosexuals here second?

before we extend visas, green cards and asylum to Muslim boys and men? [Phyllis Chesler]

IN CONCLUSION: The misguided fools and tools at CWS need an awakening, before it’s too late for the Christian Refugees of The Middle East.  These hapless do-gooders should ask more probing questions of CWS.Are we doing enough to help the Christian victims suffering under the boot of terrorism?A pretty smile to passersby is not enough.

“Stop Killing Us ” Protest Defends Islam @ Trump Tower NYC (6-21-16)

What : “Stop Killing Us / Not In Our Names” Protest (& Die-in)

13483123_10154373617228013_2298841385249710818_oWho : The protest was organized by ACT UP NY and leaders from Muslim, Latino and LGBTQ organizations.  SILENCE=DEATH t-shirts were the uniform of the day

When :  6 pm to 7 pm /June 21, 2016 (before they marched to Trump Tower, the protest gathered at 58th and Fifth)
Where :  Trump Tower – Fifth Avenue and 56th St. NYC
(where the media awaited the misguided throng)
Why : Via ACT UP’s press release:

“Just over a week after the slaughter of dozens of LGBTQ people at Pulse in Orlando, Donald Trump is seeking the support and the endorsement of groups  who have — for decades — advocated hatred, discrimination, and violence against our community,” said James Krellenstein, a member of ACT UP NY. “


“By continuing to embrace, rather than condemn these hate groups, Donald Trump and the Republican Party are spitting on the victims of the Orlando Massacre.”

“Instead of advocating for policies that would actually improve the safety, health, civil rights, and livelihood of all communities, Trump has chosen to meet and seek the support of religious extremists who have supported and defended legislation such as Uganda’s infamous “Kill the Gays” bill. All the while, he uses the recent violence against the LGBTQ community as an excuse to advocate for discrimination against American Muslims.”

I arrived about 35 minutes before the scheduled one-hour protest. Spent that  time hanging with the MSM. Their cameras were set-up (facing the Tower entrance) ready to cover the protest at 6 pm.
However, these best laid plans went out-the-window once the marchers arrived. The protestors BACKS to the cameras, with a LARGE “Republican Hate Kills” banner also blocking the cameras, perhaps this accounts for a lack of coverage for the protest and die-in.Earlier, I saw James Krellenstein, a founding member of the Prevention of HIV Action Group of ACT UP/New York) giving an interview just before he joined the marchers.
As the protestors arrived at Trump Tower, amongst their many chants were  “Queer lives matter – Muslim lives matter! “Racist, Sexist, Anti-Gay, Donald Trump Go Away” . “No more Islamophobia” and “Shame. Shame . Shame”

VIDEO

Excerpts from Omar Sarwar, a Gay Muslim from the Muslim Alliance for Sexual and Gender Diversity (MASGD), who spoke to the misguided “Stop Killing Us” crowd outside Trump Tower.

VIDEO

[Sarwar was born in New York City and grew up in the United States, Bahrain, Japan, and Singapore. He wasn’t raised in a religious family, but says his family is Sunni Muslims from Pakistan.]

The only other speaker I filmed was the first speaker. He seemed to be one of the leaders, but I didn’t get his name.

VIDEO

Antifa made an appearance: The other side of  the”Antifa” sign i“Dead Bigots Can’t Hate” ….  Perhaps THIS is a clear threat of VIOLENCE from the ‘peacefully’ misguided protestorsMore quotes from their press release: “The LGBTQ community is a rainbow coalition of races and religious beliefs. While we stand united against any kind of religious bigotry, we will not stand silent while our Muslim LGBTQ brothers and sisters continue to be targets of hate speech,” said Tom Blake, another member of ACT UP NY.”

Once I moved to the Patriots location – to the side of the “Stop Killing Us”minions – I managed to miss the die-in... Screen Shot 2016-06-26 at 1.42.18 PM
But, I did capture some hardy exchanges between the Patriots and the “Stop Killing Us” protestors….

VIDEO

And a Patriot who shouted across the din,” You are more afraid of Donald Trump than the Jihadists. Do you KNOW what the Jihadists do to gays? I just don’t get it!” (*crickets * from the press) The media, as usual, cared not-a-wit that the Leftists NEVER  mentioned the enemy (“who-shall-not-be-named”),  The Jihadists.

VIDEO

Instead, they focused on the misguided animus on the anti-Trump/anti-Christian Facebook page, “On this day Donald Trump will meet with hundreds of members of the hateful religious right in New York City.
“We are protesting the use of LGBTQ murders as justification for hateful, misguided, Islamophobic politics and for the continuing murderous anti-queer and anti-trans agenda of the religious right.”

In their bizarro world, the truth is inconvenient. Instead we are told that, in Orlando,

The 49 died because CHRISTIANS made the terrorist homophobic

The 49 died because CHRISTIANS made the terrorist ashamed of being gay

Ignore that the terrorist praised ‘allah’ as he murdered the 49

Ignore that the terrorist’s RELIGION was ISLAM

AND IGNORE that ISLAM IS HOMOPHOBIC.

And then, there was the “Irish”, open borders Socialist and an “indigenous” fellow who came over to challenge the Patriots, as did a smoking (literally) woman whose only function was to blow smoke in their faces.


VIDEO

 

In conclusion: WHO’s really killing gays? Who murdered 49 people in Florida?
The truth came NOT from the anti-Christian agit-prop that paraded in front of Trump Tower.

THIS is the TRUTH (from AFDI)

6a00d8341c60bf53ef017c382ceb5c970b-600wiTo end this post, I share a video that nails the salient talking-points avoided because:  “The Left has chosen to protect the feelings of Muslims over the lives of Gays.”  (FYI- video is, unfortunately, posted by Infowars. com aka 9/11 conspiracy theorist, Alex Jones’ blog)
