Pro-Israel Rally : Stand Up Against Terror – NYC (5-12-21)

May 12, 2021 Duffy Square . NYC. Stand Up Against Terror.
(no idea why this rally was never posted here)

It was a really nice turn out in Support for Israel, with just a few Neturei Karta in opposition. Unfortunately the speakers were in a tight circle so the media wasn’t able to get coverage – other than a few signs.

Ben & Jerrys boycott Jews in Israel : STOP Jew Hate

Aug 12, 2021 – On the steps of the NY Public Library on Fifth Avenue. A protest against Ben & Jerry’s Jew-hating decision to boycott Jews in Israel.

Activists handed out free ice cream, t-shirts, and flyers explaining how Ben & Jerry’s de-legitimizes Jewish self-determination and encourages Jew-hatred. By talking face-to-face with members of the public, they were able to make the case against Jew-hatred and explain how Ben & Jerry’s bigotry in Israel harms Jews.

Ben & Jerrys Serve Ice Cream Not Jew HateSupporters of the ‘End Jew Hated’ movement gathered at the New York Public Library entrance with signs reading, ‘End Jew Hatred’ and then marched to the Ben and Jerry’s store in Times Square (which was CLOSED )


They marched through midtown Manhattan protesing ice-cream giant Ben and Jerry’s decision to stop sales of its products in  Judea and Samaria (aka East Jerusalem),  the West Bank Settlements.

Video 1 – short excerpts: Intro speaker. Then  Second speaker, David Weprin, NY State Assemblyman. “Shame on you, Ben and Jerry. Shame on Unilever. If you support hate, we will boycott you.” Next speaker, a young woman (one of the organizers) and lastly the blowing of the shofar. “End Jew Hatred Now!

Video 2: The ‘End Jew Hated’ movement gathered with signs reading, ‘End Jew Hatred’. LATER dozens of these pro-Israel supporters marched through midtown Manhattan to protest ice-cream giant Ben and Jerry’s decision to stop sales of its products in Judea and Samaria (aka East Jerusalem) – the West Bank Settlements

B&J’s announced on July 19  that it would no longer sell ice cream in the ‘Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT)‘ due to inconsistencies with their values, and they would stay in ‘Israel through a different arrangement.‘ COWARDS.

“Globalize the Intifada” anti-Zionists outside NYC Israeli Consulate

August 16, 2021. 4 pm. NYC.”Go to Hell Israel” was chanted by a few dozen “palestinian” anti-zionists protesting outside the Israeli consulate. Their goal today was “Globalize the Intifada”. “Show the world that while corrupt governments normalize with the enemy, the people continue to rise up against normalization and in defense of “palestine“!

There was a smaller but equally robust counter-protest as they chanted Hamas Kills Kids and Am Yisrael Chai!#JewsFightBack and #EndJewHatred

“Zionists unite across the street from the Israel Consulate. Our voices MUST be loud and strong. OUR voices must drown out the demands of the Jew-haters who call for death to Jews by calling for “Intifada”. Our Jewish pride and strength must be heard and seen from NYC to Jerusalem. Send a message to Jews around the world: Stand up! Be seen! Be heard!  Send a message to Jew haters to End Jew Hatred! “

Jews Fight Back vs Globalize the Intifada

Video 1 : Nerdeen Mohsen Kiswani. (the passing traffic was loud) “palestinian stolen land. 70 years and they continue to steal “palestinian” land. “palestinian” cities where people have to be kicked out … stolen or demolished … We have the solidarity of the people with us. You hear people honking … different countries supporting the people of “palestine“… global.

Law student, community activist & “palestine” legal client, Nerdeen Kiswani, has faced a barrage of attacks for her campus and local organizing for “palestinian” freedom, alongside @CUNYLawSJP and @cunyjlsa . The law office of Lamis Deek is representing Nerdeen in conjunction with “palestine” legal.

Video 2 : Watched a young Marxist Jew stomp on Israeli flag …  across from the Pro-Israeli,End Jew Hatred protestors.

His flag with hammer & sickle represented the Communist Party of Israel …  Marxism-Leninism and Anti- Zionism.

Video 3: Sadly the Jew Hatred continues, built on LIES spewed from the ‘palis’ and Marxists outside the Israeli Consulate..

The lies and the hatred must be challenged: Globalize Jewish Pride.

Am Yisrael Chai!

March on Gracie Mansion: Say No to Vaccine Passports!

August 15, 2021 (Sunday) : Rally at Gracie Mansion opposing the vaccine passports. The mandate was to begin on Monday, August 16th. Restaurants, theatres, bowling alleys and gyms will need to check vaccination cards or scan apps for proof of vaccination. No entry otherwise.  Which lead to the march!

As decreed by Mayor “de Bozo” the required passport checks are “so we can participate FULLY in society“. But, next …  the EX-Gov. Cuomo and obscene Dr. Fauci have recommended : a BOOSTER shot!

First speaker was Curtis Sliwa, Republican Candidate for Mayor of NYC. He spoke to a robust crowd outside Gracie Mansion – the citizens of NYC who demanded their God-given right to Freedom-of-Choice. Video:

The crowd was very clear: No to Vaccine Passports; No to Forced Vaccinations. My Body. My Choice. Enough!

However, an upper East Side reporter besmirched the protestors [Upper East Site] Many in the media have characterized Freedom-of-Choicers as selfish loons. See also the obscene  [NY Daily News]  And equally obscene scare-mongering seeped out of the NY Times:

This was clearly a diverse and informed crowd. See Flickr Slideshow:

March on Gracie Mansion

Many business owners stated they are not in the business of being the vaccination police. From Pasticceria Rocco, a pastry shop and diner in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn,  “It is really hard to go up against a machine, and that’s what we are up against. Honestly, I put the sign up because I was hoping that other business owners would also have the courage to speak out. But it is mainly our customers who have reached out in support.”

Wonder what Pfizer offered the FDA to approve a drug that won’t complete clinical trials till 2023 …

Karen Kingston, a former Pfizer employee and current analyst for the pharmaceutical and medical device industries, came forward with indisputable documentation that should be shared with the ENTIRE WORLD!

She claims that ”the inoculation being referred to as COVID “Vaccine” is a poisonous death sentence and nobody should subject themselves to the shots.”

Whatever the conclusion


Will this “New World” tyranny never end?

Justice For Jan 6 – Free Political Prisoners NOW – Foley Square NYC

Justice For Jan 6 – Free Political Prisoners NOW! (July 25 and  June 27,2021)

Video Part 1 – Today was Antifa vs Free Jan 6 Political Prisoners. A protest rally (1- 3 pm.) in Foley Square hosted by C.A.P.P (Citizens Against Political Prosecution). The Jan 6 political prisoners have been locked up in cages. American citizens denied justice.

IMG_7315-2jpgSaw the Antifa Goons approaching Foley as I arrived .

IMG_7243 The antifa and fellow leftist chums came to harass the patriots (and the police)  – even threw a few eggs. (United Against Racism & Fascism-NYC is a broad-based coalition in NYC opposing racism & bigotry, and united in solidarity & action against fascism.)

There were loads of NYPD to keep both sides separated.

brian nypdCrack Head Barney was there being a nuisance. Saw Bernard Goetz Proud Boy Garth, of New York chapter of Proud Boys was a speaker.Video part 2 –  It was a well behaved crowd, the patriots. The only nasty shiz came from the antifas. (It took too long for the speakers to arrive. Left after an hour of a very loud rapper who was filling time)

June 27, 2021 had a different problem.
This was also “Gay Pride Day” and the city was a mess, transportation-wise.  Had intended to stay for the speakers, but 30 minutes in, still no speakers (and it was in the 90s temp-wise). Unfortunately, couldn’t find a link to their speakers at their web-site.

Even though a smaller turn out, the commitment to those illegally imprisoned is solid.

Hoping their are able to get some attention for the patriots who are imprisoned ILLEGALLY.

But, getting justice is not going well for the Jan 6 prisoners. Fair and Balanced is not on the demon-crats menu.

House Democrats voted almost entirely along party lines Wednesday to create a special committee tasked with investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol after Senate Republicans blocked a more bipartisan plan for probing the bloody insurrection. Just two Republicans — anti-Trump Reps. Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois — joined all 220 Democrats in voting 222-190 for the establishment of the special Jan. 6 panel.

Rise & Resist Leftists Protest Rep. Lee Zelden outside NY Metro Rep. Club

August 4, 2021- 5:30 pm. The hard-left commies of Rise and Resist gathered outside the NYC Metropolitan Republican Club to protest Congressman Lee Zelden’s strong stance in support of President Trump.

IMG_7398
The Rise and Resisters were outraged that Zeldin continues to challenge the stolen election and the brutal treatment of Jan 6 American citizens. (They make no mention of the burning of cities and deaths caused by the BLM/Antifa terrorists)

Flickr slide show – It wasn’t a huge protest, more of a gathering of a few annoying pests outside.

Peoples Medical Freedom Rally – NY City Hall – Aug 9, 2021

August 9, 2021. Noon. Outside NY City Hall. The protest started with a HUGE mural of Mayor de Blasio in a Che t-shirt, holding a bloody head of a decapitated Statue of Liberty.

Hundreds were there to protest a vaccine mandate for entering gyms, indoor restaurants, and entertainment venues that is set to take effect on August 16.

The Peoples' Medical Freedom Rally NYC

The messages for the Mayor included: Just say NO to Vaccine Passports and forced vaccinations. My Body My Choice.

VIDEOS: Part 1

.Part 2 – There was a heckler … Liberal Activist/Agitator and ACTOR   @Waltermasterson  dressed in medical garb while taunting the protestors, who gave it right back at him. Too bad the Mayor was in Maine vacationing, he missed all the ‘fun’ as “We will not comply!” rang outside New York City Hall. 

.See Elad Eliahu expose this fraud. [https://twitter.com/elaadeliahu/status/1427054587442249735]

.Part 3   – As I left, I heard a respectful Pledge of Allegiance with a slight alteration – to include mention of the Constitution.

And some extra info that the media and government works hard to debunk:

“The CDC is actively under counting vaccinated COVID cases. They admit that the injections do not stop transmission. They tell you that you still have to wear masks. The injections might reduce symptoms. They do not provide lasting immunity like a Polio vaccine does. We know this. This is the science. These injections are not real vaccines. We need to realize that we are mandating something during an emergency that is just a symptom-reducing treatment at best. There are other treatments, but the doctors who dare treat COVID successfully without resorting to an RNA injection are censored from the mainstream news media and internet. Their opinions are more difficult to find, but the information is out there. Actively censoring dissenting medical and scientific opinions contributes to mask and vaccine “hesitancy” and so does forcing a vaccine passport down our collective throats.”
IMG_7595
In conclusion
: What was most important to this crowd, it seemed, was that losing freedom to medical tyranny in favor of a lawsuit-free agenda favoring Big Pharma was NOT acceptable. This was a point made by a politically diverse crowd. Some agreed with taking the injections and wearing masks, and some disagreed. Some were conservative, some were liberal, a diverse array of pandemic opinions and political views. All agreed with “My Body My Choice”. And said NO to mandating injections and masks and vaccine passports.

.The Totalitarian State has arrived and threatens our future generations: “If you want to participate in society fully, you’ve got to get vaccinated”

.‘The program, which de Blasio dubbed the “Key to NYC Pass,” makes New York the first major US city to create such a mandate… indoor dining, in indoor fitness facilities, indoor entertainment facilities. The restrictions will not apply to outdoor dining.”

“New Yorkers will be required to show either the state’ “Excelsior Pass,” the city’s new vaccine pass or Center for Disease Control’s paper vaccine card, as proof of vaccination …”

Those who are un-vaccinated will not have an option to receive a COVID-19 test… State Sen. James Sanders Jr. (D-Queens) said he supports the policy. “Only government can make a difference here,” he said during the virtual press briefing. “If we do not take a strong stand and say ‘you have the right to your body, of course; but you do not have to kill other people.

CO-VID VARIANTS  On DEMAND

Vaccine Passports and their ubiquitous variants, will join the Delta Variant (and now the Lambda) just in time for Midterm Elections:

The People (world wide) do NOT accept this loss of freedom: BOYCOTT the vaccine passports Marches are huge country by country.

.The legal detention of healthy people, the punishment of rule-breakers and the mandating of vaccine passports are permitted by emergency laws but also enabled by a narrative of de-humanisation. … the continuing manipulation of fear …. judgement on the un-vaccinated — they are ‘selfish’. Is this a ploy to encourage ill-will, division and citizen-policing?” [SpectatorUK]

None of this makes sense:
“It does if you are an expediter of the Great Reset / New World Order.”

 


New ‘delta plus’ COVID mutation detected in South Korea, alarming health officials. (there is no TEST to identify it)

…. the PCR test which the ‘scientists’ are now discarding as they finally figured out what the Nobel Prize recipient who created it—Kary Mullis—plainly told us can’t tell you if you have a virus or not. That’s not what the function of the test.

INFORMED DISSENT: Never Let Anyone Bully You Into A Medical Intervention You Don’t Want

.Say NO to PassPorts. UN-Mask your Children!

Stop medical tyranny. The plandemic is over.
The People Will Not Be Silent.

Anti-Israel Protestors countered by PRO Israel supporters- May 11, 2021

On May 11, 2021Pro-Palestinian Rallies were held in cities world-wide, in the wake of another Israel-Hamas flare-up. Always claiming to be the victim, “palis” assembled and screamed for an eager media. (A late post, yes, but sadly the conflict goes on … )

The Emergency Rally for “palestine” was described as a Mobilization to support “palestinian” resistance, return and liberation“.  This was the largest protest of muzzies seen in quite awhile.


Fortunately, a pro-Israel counter-protest gathered across from the NYC Israeli Consulate. (the ‘palis’ were not allowed near the consulate.)

At first, the NYPD kept the ‘palis” in front of WPIX-11.  Until the “palis”,  like a fungus, spread across 42nd st blocking sidewalks and the street. The NYPD was confidently ignored.

IMG_9006

As the fakenstinians chanted loudly from the south side of 42nd, lots of media covered their “Jews are evil colonizers” meme.

While”pali”-attorney, Lamis Deek, chatted up the police, she always appears to be the person-in-control. When it is time, Deek calls-the-shots

Seen here flipping off the Israelis, Deek shows how RUDE she really is.

The pali game-plan: pretend to do as arranged, knowing the police will handle the ‘fakers’ carefully, no matter what. Even so, victim-type theatrics accompanies their planned chaos.

IMG_6027
Never failing to l the police know they do not support them is required.

6 short videos playlist

With Biden protecting them, they have no fear of the police, starting camera-savvy physical confrontations that the Israeli supporters did not accept quietly.

The NYPD tries to corral the Fakestinians. But they finally spilled into the street, blocking 42nd street traffic; the penultimate “invasion” before they marched west towards Times Square.

Part 1 Flickr – a lot of the anti-Israel signs and crowd

Anti-Israel Protest May 11, 2021 NYC
The two women leading the “pali” protest, included attorney, Lamis Deek [@Lamis_Deek] and activist,  Nerdeen Kiswani [@NerdeenKiswani]

Lamis Deek Human Rights Attorney, Activist, Strategist, Crisis Mgmt

 “We say again, ‘What happened in Palestine this month is irreversible. Palestinians will either rise up against the impending abductions and torture in 48, escalated military violence and torture in WB, genocide in Gaza, and see liberation Or face death.’ No choice now.” (Lamis Deek 5/18/21)  [https://thesilentmajoritynomore.com/2021/05/28/lamis-deek-rants-as-free-palestine-mob-takes-to-nyc-streets/

“I assure myself of only this, I never betrayed or acted or spoke to weaken the “palestinian” resistance to Zionist violence …”

“… palestinians” are so used to being defamed, demonized and abused everywhere, schools, courts, media and not just the news, work we have to remind ourselves to recognize it as abuse.

Nerdeen Mohsen Kiswani (seen as they set up the protest) has called for violence against Israelis, celebrating terrorism,  “It makes me sick to my stomach to see “palestinian” businesses in the U.S. promoted as a way to support “palestine”. How is making a business owner in the U.S. richer going to help the people of Gaza who are being slaughtered? The death of our people is not a business promotion.

Ethnic Cleansing. Genocide. Killing babies. U.S. moral obligation to support ‘palestine’. Paople of world always been on our side. We will defeat them one way or another.

[BreakThrough News @BTnewsroom] “Thousands of people marched on the Israeli Consulate in New York City to express their support for the “palestinians” who are facing an all-out war declared against them by Israel. We spoke to one of the organizers of the march” @NerdeenKiswani from @WOLPalestine.

NYC, you will see, “palestine” will be free! NYC, you will learn, refugees will return!🇵🇸 Intifada in Lydd, Jerusalem, Haifa, and ALL OF “PALESTINE”.

UPDATED Links –  July/Aug 2021 – Jews Fight Back!

A large billboard has been set up outside The New York Times’ headquarters that accuses the paper of “burying” news of attacks on Jewish people decades after it admitted to downplaying the Holocaust. The billboard addressed directly chairman and publisher, A.G. Sulzberger. 

“Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time the Sulzberger dynasty has ducked reporting on antisemitism,” Levin said. “A.G. Sulzberger’s great grandfather, Arthur Hays Sulzberger, buried Holocaust coverage deep in the paper, obscuring its magnitude and evil.” [Fox News]

Protest Vaccine Passports at “Springsteen on Bdwy”

June 26, 2021. NYC. The “Bruce Springsteen On Broadway” concert drew dozens of protestors outside the theatre objecting to proof of vaccination from the audience.

Just say NO to Vaccine Passports!
Vaccine Passports  are authoritarian, illiberal and wrong. 

“A group of anti-vaccine protesters showed up to the opening night of Bruce Springsteen’s “Springsteen on Broadway” Saturday, holding signs against the theater policy that required show attendees to have proof of vaccination by a WHO– or FDA-approved vaccine.” (Newsweek)

“Protesters held signs including “no vax passports” and “Bruce Springsteen is for segregation on Broadway.” The small group also shouted slogans such as “stop segregation” as attendees arrived for the show.” [Newsweek]

Flickr Slide show of the protest

IMG_6664

.Part 1 video: As the protestors approached the theatre, they chanted “Vaccine Mandates Got To Go!” they squared off across 44th st, challenging the concert-goers in front of the St James.

“Those of us who have healthy immune systems should be able to enjoy these freedoms just like anybody else!”

“Between a pro-lockdown govt that ‘may’ temporarily lift some restrictions for a few weeks only to reimpose them in the autumn & a pro-lockdown ‘opposition’ that wouldn’t lift restrictions at all, even temporarily, we have a phoney war going on at present.”

Considering there was a glut of media outside, there were just a few published reports of the protest; not what I expected.

Just google “no vaccine passport protest Springsteen” to find links to articles, but most simply linked to Newsweek, making no mention of the counter- protest til I found “app.com”.

“Bruce Springsteen fans were not the only ones at the St. James Theatre on Saturday for the first performance of “Springsteen on Broadway” since the COVID-19 pandemic. About three dozen, vocal, anti-vaccine protesters were also outside the theater on Saturday evening. They voiced displeasure that the show is seating only fans who have been vaccinated from the novel coronavirus.” [app.com]

Unfortunately,the NY POST photo, taken outside the theatre, was labeled as only “FANS”?  No mention of the protestors.

The next picture shows more closely the protestors vs the audience stand-off. Plus, this was a loud No Vaccine Passports protest, so reporting them as only “Fans” seemed an odd omission.

Part 2 video  The exchanges were personal regarding the vaccine passport segregation, the discrimination, as they chanted, “My Body, My Choice”. The signs they carried, many were people who took the vaccine to “protect their grandmas” and ended up dying. “They believed in that vaccine and now they’re not here.

Part 3 video. A war of words as ‘instigators’ from the audience-side confronted the protestors by spilling into and blocking the street. “Shame on you” was now the protestor chant as the police sent everyone back to their own sides with  another protestor chant, “Hey, Hey, Ho, Ho, Vaccine Mandate’s Got to Go.”

Part 4 video. The protestors continued challenging the people waiting to enter the St James theatre who were apparently regarding the photo posters they held. These  “… people who actually died from the vaccine … if you are laughing at them, then you’ve got to be really sick in the head. And I’d be ashamed to be standing next to you …”  THEN, a guy RAN passed us towards 8th avenue and the crowd went after him shouting “shame on you”. (Never found out why) But, the result was the protest was now closer to 8th avenue (in front of the Majestic Theatre) Two women were busy with “Try the Magnetic Challenge”. Offering  Free Jewelry to anyone who was magnetic (from the vaccine).

The black woman at the end of the video, unfortunately her accent was difficult to understand, but she was obviously upset. “You can’t enter a Broadway show … unless you’re vaccinated. And you guys think that’s okay? What country is this? I wanta know… is this Communist China? This is United States of America …. and now freedom is being taken away from America…”

”This sort of discrimination is ethically repugnant. What have the un vaccinated done to deserve to be placed in this sort of under-class … (because they) happen to have opted out of the Covid vaccination program?”

“The show was attended by all the beautiful vaccinated people. Gov. Murphy was there as were “Little” Steven Van Zandt and U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg with his husband, Chasten Buttigieg, as reported by Theaterly, and a sold-out house of vaccinated fans according to the rules set by the theatre  …. and the Boss.” [NJ101.5]

What sucks is that I agree that the un vaccinated are the new target of segregation and prejudice. I don’t understand why those that got the COVID shots should care who else did if they’re protected from the virus. But in today’s world, it’s not about what they choose to do, it’s about making sure that you do it, too.” [NJ101.5]

Jujamcyn Theatres, the company that operates the St. James, stands by this decision, even after the protests.

One of the things we’ve learned this year is that the health of each of us depends on the actions of all of us,” Jordan Roth, President of Jujamcyn, tells TheWrap. “My health depends on you, and yours on me. That’s what it is to live in a community.” [The Wrap]

”If we look to other regions where indoor hospitality has been opened up a long, long time ago, we do not see higher spikes in hospitalizations in those regions, nor do they perform significantly worse than regions with indoor hospitality shut down. Sweden kept indoor hospitality open throughout the vast majority of the pandemic, yet experienced among the lowest age-adjusted excess mortality levels in Europe, lower than Netherlands, Northern Ireland, France, England, Austria, Spain, Belgium, and Italy, all countries with protracted lock downs.

Similarly, Florida opened up back in September 2020, while instituting protective measures for its care homes, and ended up with lower age-adjusted excess mortality than many lock down regions, such as California. Texas opened up completely in early March of this year and saw no spike in cases or deaths (in fact, they declined).

Since when have we decided that vaccination is a strict civic obligation, rather than an optional private choice? Since when have we decided that those who opt out of a vaccine should be treated differently to everyone else? Surely this is their moral and legal right.” [https://gript.ie/domestic-vaccine-passports-have-no-place-in-a-free-and-open-society/]
