Chinatown Displacement, Armenian Genocide and Falun Dafa Persecution

NYC – it never sleeps – particularly when it comes to protests and rallies, a restless hot-bed of activism. Three events came up recently that dealt with the egregious treatment of minorities in NYC and the world at large, some with deathly consequences. When and how to we fight back against tyranny? Will tolerance keep the peace?

First up, a the displacement of minorities that comes from within the very Leftward government that runs NYC: not genocidal, but racist and profit motivated. The merits of which are constantly being challenged by this consortium.

April 26, 2017. 3:30 pm. The LES (Lower East Side) consortium  of Leftists, Socialists and Communists were protesting real estate displacement and demanding the resignation of Comrades deBlasio and Chin.

Protest after protest Mayor “Red Bill”  and Council Member, Margaret Chin have ignored their demands. Amid cries of racism, the residents feel there is no place for them in the deBlasio/Chin LES. And they might be correct.

Media Advisory says: “Chin – launched her own limited rezoning for Chinatown – excluding Latins, Blacks and other Asians from land use protections; destroying our communities; pitting Asian Americans, Blacks and Latinos against each other.” [Video]

Who is right. wrong. Old buildings eventually come down. Is it necessary to eliminate the status quo? Is it inconvenient for them to remain in their communities?

Chinatown, LES, & Lower Manhattan residents and workers protest CM Margaret Chin’s divisive and destructive rezoning and land use policies.

 The LES Community demands that Chin and Mayor “Red Bill ‘ de Blasio  step down. Guilty of collusion with real estate developers and their racist policies, leading to the potential destruction of Chinatown, Lower East Side and Lower Manhattan.

Which takes me next to the Armenian Genocide Commemoration.

For the 100 year anniversary in 2015 there was a much larger gathering. But, large or small, each year’s meme is the same: NEVER FORGET.

The Muslim Turkish Government’s attempt to wipe the Armenian people off the planet was genocide and Hitler admired what the Turks nearly accomplished. This was his template used against the Jews of Europe – his Final Solution – GENOCIDE.

… millions of people around the world will mourn the implementation of a plan—devised by Ottoman officials a hundred years ago, amid the chaos of the First World War—to annihilate the Armenian people in their native homeland. Initiated in 1915, the policy was brutally effective; by the war’s end, it had resulted in the destruction of virtually every Armenian community outside Constantinople, and the elimination of more than a million people from territory in what is now modern Turkey. This is what is meant by the term “Armenian genocide.” [The New Yorker]

Sen. Chuck Schumer spoke, as he seems to do every year, addressing the collective Armenian trauma and Turkey’s refusal to acknowledge the sins of their fathers.

… For many Armenians living around the world, in a state of post-Ottoman diaspora, that trauma has been compounded by the lack of official recognition and reconciliation. To this day, the Turkish state denies that a systematic annihilation ever occurred (by the name of genocide, or any other).And Armenians continue to struggle with the official negation: to endlessly combat it is its own form of prison, but to try moving past it unilaterally, abandoning the horrific events of 1915 in the shadows of denial, is to succumb to willful blindness and injustice … [The New Yorker]

Which brings me to my final entry: the 25th Anniversary of world acceptance of  Falun Dafa, accepted by all EXCEPT CHINA. May 12 , 2017  was WORLD Falun Dafa Day  [Video]

I happened upon their parade at 42nd st and 10th ave. Colorful. Joyful. Impressive. Banner after banner. They really are world-wide.

Their message: Falun Dafa Good.  A peaceful meditation that CHINA has decided is so EVIL that Falun Dafa practitioners must be eradicated. (Genocide)

This was a long parade. Never did see the end of it. Saw banner after banner representing countries around the world where Falun Dafa are accepted (but not in China). In China they are still harassed. imprisoned. murdered.

It seemed the NYPD was redirecting the parade away from the Chinese Consulate on 12th avenue.  Odd since the Tibetans protest there regularly. Whatever, the Falun Dafa marched toward the Consulate in celebration and protest.

The LES Chinatown real estate situation is obviously not the Armenian and Falun Dafa genocides. But, the tyranny of government can go easily from real estate adventure, to eminent domain, to removing a whole people, leading to genocidal consequences.

Every time the free-world attempts to protect itself from the One-World Islamic anschluss of terrorism and domination we are badgered with cries of racism. xenophobia or even more ridiculously: Nazi. Who is right?  Who decides. Who wins?

Hitler. Stalin. China. Turkey. Geographically specific horrors. But, Islamic domination and genocide is a world-wide horror. It’s here. It’s now. So as the city that never sleep plods on with parades, protests and rallies one phrase rings true: NEVER FORGET. (Never give in) Brave words to live by … or die.

“NO! to KKK Jeff Sessions’ Mandatory Sentencing!” Protest NYC

MAY 15 , 2017  (5 – 7 pm) “NO! to KKK Jeff Sessions’ Mandatory Sentencing!Hosted by RefuseFascism.org.

Jeff Sessions, the current United States Attorney General, was the object of their collective anti-Fascist scorn, “Sessions has issued a COMPLETELY draconian policy that will bring a New Jim Crow.

 video

Fake orange jump-suited prisoners (chained), holding their assigned offenses, were accosted by a fake Jeff Sessions. This was not a great moment in street theatre history.

They made another claim about the Sessions sentencing : “If you haven’t heard about mandatory sentencing, you have no idea what hell is about to come down on black and brown people.”

They continued with: “White supremacist Attorney General Jeff Session just issued a sweeping policy of mandatory sentencing for all criminal offenses. This means that people will be charged with the MOST serious penalty for all offenses. For example: If someone is arrested with one joint, mandatory sentencing is 1 year in prison. This will DESTROY THE LIVES OF millions of our people, especially Black and Latino people. This (is) racist and it is fascist.”

 The best laid plans for these non-stop bitch-fests don’t always come-off as planned.  I saw people. Real people. Connected. Sincere in their delusions. Sharing. Bonded. Committed. Grab an adjective. They all fit.

Yes they really were TRYING to make this piece of street theatre come-off as planned: a biting, witty  commentary on the evils of that southern Fascist Jeff Beauregard Sessions.

However,  once their fake Jeff Sessions stepped up-to-the- plate. Bad. Just plain bad street theatre. This guy needed to go home.

This young woman was loud and clear. Thanks to her, and not the faux Jeff Sessions, we knew WHY they were protesting.

What is Jeff Sessions Mandatory Sentencing? (Facebook)

This is an re-institution of a brutal new form of Jim Crow. Every outrage by this Trump Regime must be met with greater and greater resistance. And we must act together to drive it out before its too late.

 Mandatory minimum sentences are cruel and ineffective. Sessions wants them back.

Under Sessions, prosecutors will be required almost always to charge mandatory minimums, however unjust. They will bind judges’ hands even when the facts cry out for more measured punishment. The result will be great suffering. And there is no good reason for it.

Who is Jeff Sessions (Facebook) 

Jeff Sessions led the prosecution of three Black civil rights workers for attempting to register Black people to vote in areas of Alabama where virtually no Black people had been able to vote, near the infamous town of Selma. He also called a white civil right lawyer a “disgrace to his race” for litigating voting rights cases.

Under Sessions leadership, Alabama used the torturous practice of hitching posts. This is where prisoners, were shackled for as long as 7 hours in the broiling heat of Alabama’s summer to chest high horizontal bars. They were deprived of food, water and the toilet. This along with chain gangs ( men tied together in groups of 5 with 8 feet of chain between them) and involved hard labor breaking walks. These torturous practices disproportionately affected black people and were ruled un-constitutional.

++The following facts, in defense of Jeff Sessions, are not based on Fake News hysteria nor Leftist agitprop++

Politico.com : “Senator Jeff Sessions’ nomination to be the 84th attorney general of the United States is fantastic news for those who revere the rule of law.

TheHill.com : “My advice to Democrats, regarding their demand for the head of Attorney General Jeff Sessions: turn off MSNBC and CNN, and calmly read the transcripts of the remarks that have been made.

DailyCaller.com : “Senator Jeff Sessions is not a racist.  If you listen to only certain Senate Democrats and others on the left, that’s exactly what they want you to think […] (they) are labeling Senator Sessions as a racist for actually fighting for the voting rights of African Americans.”

The TRUTH is a terrible thing to waste….

100 Days : #TheResistance vs Thank You Pres. Trump Patriots NYC

April 29, 2017. Noon. Trump Tower – 56th street and Fifth Avenue -home base for The Resistance. The police seems to favor them at this prime location.

57th street and Fifth – the not preferred but seemingly predictable location that now houses the patriot rallies.

On this 1oo day of celebration, it was great to see that some came to praise our President.

VIDEO #TheResistance and Patriots come face to face

While others came to vilify him. Unceasingly.

Part 1 Flickr slide show: The anti Left Mania continues. Noon . Trump Tower. Not my President. 100 Days of Failure. IMPEACH TRUMP!

IMG_6934

Some observations. Re this ‘bigly’ thing: another Fake News meme.

BBC News  and The Hollywood Reporter

‘bigly’? “It’s a word,” says Fiona McPherson, a senior editor with the Oxford English Dictionary.

“Bigly” can mean “with great force”, she says. Thomas Hardy uses it in Far From the Madding Crowd to mean “proudly, haughtily, pompously,” McPherson adds. The OED lists an adjectival definition: “Habitable, fit to dwell in; (hence) pleasant.”

The US reference book company Merriam-Webster agrees that “bigly” is a word.

Part 2 Slide show : the Patriot’s Support President Trump Rally was a block away from the 100 Days “Not My President” Protest. No matter.

DSC_2358

Things got lively when some of the younger patriots brought flag-waving, singing and chanting to the Anti-Trump location.

Eventually, The Not My President losers started their march, passing by the patriots on their way to Columbus Circle.

VIDEO as the march begins and goes past patriots

The Never Ending Resistance : 100 days and counting.

But, perhaps there is a glimmer of hope that their persistence is NOT winning

Townhall -Kurt Schlicter:

In the first 100 days … the goofy collection of commie traitors, coastal snobs, and crack-pot weirdoes that hilariously styles itself “#TheResistance” has only managed to successfully resist success.

#TheResistance is resisting us. The elite establishment is outraged that we normals have demanded to govern ourselves rather than begging for scraps from our betters in DC, NY and LA…. we rejected … them…. we “stole” ….their birthright to reign sovereign over us.

#The Resistance is a mess [….] reduced to fighting for supremacy in their final redoubt, the universities where their fascist intimidation and suppression of speech provides a glimpse of America as it would have been had Trump not been elected […]


[….] forced into a last-ditch effort to keep power in an institution where their control is total is proof positive of their weakness […] to actively work to silence the voices of non-idiocy […] Their goose-stepping antics on campus are providing America a preview of life under Democrats and it’s not helping them.

There’s no indication that the next 100 days, or the 100 days thereafter, will be any better for #TheResistance.

My thoughts on the recent protests. May Day. Climate /Science Day. 100 days and Counting Day. And upon Trump’s return to NYC at the Intrepid the meme (again) – Impeach/Not My President Day.

Same signs. Same people. The Resistance drones on. BUT, there is a NEW Game in town. After May Day Commie Day and 100 Days Patriot’s Day it would seem the millennial gen is actively resisting The Resistance.

Silence is not the answer.

May Day NYC Commie Day – REVOLUTION 2017

There is only ONE Solution: REVOLUTION. REVOLUTION! May Day 2017. Across the country. Around the World. The Media War is winning . The Marxists and the Antifa comrades threaten the Free world but the Next Gen Millennials I saw are Mad as HELL and NOT going to take it ANY MORE.


The Mayday Workers who UNITED this day seemed to come  mostly from Latin countries. Signs in Spanish. Flags from their countries of birth (no American Flags) but, YES: MARXIST Flags. Socialists Flags. And DRUMS. Always Drums mixed with LATIN music blasting across Union Square. We weren’t in Kansas anymore. REVOLUTION. REVOLUTION. Yeah. That’s the ticket.

AND…the chants followed by the opening speech to inspire the United Commie Workers Rally.

Next we heard from Imani Henry – Peoples Assembly- Workin’ the crowd.

Enough with the speeches. I moved on to the taking of many pictures of the divergent hoards assembled. My task took wing. Pictures of signs. Lots of signs. Including the white protestors who shilled for The Socialist Green Party, the Marxist. com Party, Bob Avakian’s TRUE Marxist Party. They are the behind the scenes facilitators of the revolution to FREE Mumia. To Dump Trump. To Stop Killer Cops. The END White Supremacy — Cause—- BLACK Lives Matter.

FLICKR Slide show.

BUT, today was more than just speeches and pictures. Antifa arrived and the game changed. I heard an agitated Leftie tell their lead guy to hurry – pointing towards center of the square – there was  ” a problem”.

Seems Brittany Venti vs the Antifas was the next event leading to the arrest of this popular streamer. What I think I witnessed prior to the assault is first  presented in a series of pictures mounted in video format.

We don’t want you here!” Imani Henry (seen in another video) was  leading a ‘wall’ of people already harassing Brittany and forcing her and a friend from a Public Square.

Something happened between Antifa-guy and Brittney, leading up to a  sign hitting her on the head.  She says Antifa-guy  hit her with the sign. Video that was released shows someone does hit her in the head, And Antifa-guy was bloodied near his left eye in retaliation.

Brittany was not bloodied.  Whatever, they were BOTH arrested.

Brittany talks about what happened. It’s a  bit long, but she does give perspective on how she was attacked.  Link to short tweet  video  … from @JessixOW – she shows some of the confrontation. This is a good video that shows how long the harassment went on, how it grew, BTW, “WHERE WERE THE POLICE?”

Vocativ link report on assault and arrest

 …. an “alt-right”  (I HATE that bogus label) social media provocateur.

Venti and anti-fascist (Antifa) protesters clashed, eventually resulting in Venti’s arrest and a bloodied protester. The moments leading up to her arrest were captured on a Periscope stream. After the arrest, she claimed someone hit her with a stick. It’s not yet known with what crime, if any, Venti has been charged.

When asked “what do you have to say to your fans,” she replied, “free Brittany Venti!”

THEN there were the Libertarian kids. They too were assaulted. The assault in action. (vocativ. com)

Another scuffle broke out between Antifa protesters and Trump-supporting Libertarians about 30 minutes later, the latter group eventually being be led across the street. The faction of Trump backers, about 30 people at its height, chanted “Build the wall!” and “You lost!” to the May Day participants in Union Square.

Assaulted. Pushed. Flour-bombed  Punched. Crunched. Til finally the police got wind there was something serious happening at the SW end of the Square. No one was actually hurt – that I could see – so perhaps a lot of bluster and show for the cameras- still these Libertarian Free-Speech protestors kept smiles on their faces even in the thick of the “madding” crowd.

Once on the scene, the police pulled them to the island S.E. of the square. Sharing the area with Pro-Trump Build-the-Wall protestors.

Eventually all joined in the chorus BUILD THE WALL. Pumped. Fearless.

Which sent one white Commie flag waving millennial  into a seething rage. From the Union Square side, he paced with his Marxist flag, shouting at the patriots.

He was seeing red but not the kind he wanted.

After the assault video

Gen X Millennials. Self-identified as Libertarians. They got spunk. They are NOT Fascists. They are NOT Nazis. They call out  Communism, Socialism. The Soviet et al. They have but One Solution: Keep America Free of Totalitarian despots.

But, Never Forget, why THEY were there. THIS was MAYDAY. Commie Day. America, she is BAD. The REVOLUTION is the Only  SOLUTION: WORKERS UNITE!

Israeli Apartheid Week 2017 – Columbia University

This year the 13th Annual Israeli Apartheid Week took place all around the world between March – April 2017. Israeli Apartheid Week is organized by an international network of grassroots solidarity groups, unions and activists.

apartheid-week-2017
March 1st, 2017 – RAIN- and Apartheid Week 2017 at Columbia University and its vile Apartheid WALL was getting rained-out. (little pleasures) March 3 was the last day of this annual week of hate and lies and with no rain predicted the next day, I headed for Columbia.

But, now it was WIND. (What’s next frogs and locusts?) Whatever, once I arrived, I rather enjoyed the low-impact caused by this inclement weather. The Wall  of Hate  had to lay flat on the ground. The visual impact was down to zero.

short video:

Oddly, after about 20 minutes, I was quizzed by a Columbia Media Relations Rep. Where was my press permit (really?) He begrudgingly let me stay an extra 15 minutes since I explained I was “hanging, hoping the wind would abate and the wall placed upright – for a better picture. I waited 15 minutes. 1 pm arrived; gusty winds still blowing so: No “Wall”.

Really there was nothing new to see. Never is. I’ve been following the NYC Apartheid Week since 2007. Been to one Apartheid Week offensive you’ve been to them all: the anti-U.S., anti-Israel, anti-Jewish message is deeply embedded and never grows dim. The annual event has grown from 2005 to 2017. Ever stronger, they hold court, spew their litany of lies eagerly accepted as FACT. NO opposition allowed.

If ONLY we could get equal time to counter their outrageous lies. If only our truth could be heard …. by open minds.  If Only.

We The People Support Our New President – Rally at Trump Tower – NYC

Feb. 5, 2017- Noon – Outside Trump Tower Fifth Avenue. It was cold. It was SUPER BOWL Sunday. But, that did not keep these patriots at home.

Only problem, couldn’t hear or see the speakers. Otherwise, it was a Super Rally on Super Bowl Sunday.

I arrived a few minutes after twelve, and first thing I  heard was chanting “refugees are welcome here“. Did the pro-Trump Rally find a way to use the Lefist’s chants — as a hook for the press?  Nope. A few LOUD hard-core anti-Trumpers were on hand …. chanting away.

Moving on to the end of this block, between 55th and 56th streets, I was pleased to see the many pro-Trump rally signs. Eager. Happy. Already scoped out by the press. Cameras on tripods ready to film the action.

This was a nice turnout- kudos to the organizers. Visually the signs did not disappoint.


The enthusiasm was infectious.


Someone even brought a Donald Doll to the festivities


At the other end of the rally, the pro-Trumpers ….

…. They had a spirited exchange with the anti-Trumpers and the press, of course, drifted that direction.

AFSI  [Americans For a Safe Israel] was there. Reporting on this enthusiastic rally….

On a sunny but chilly Sunday afternoon, supporters of President Trump braved the cool weather and swarms of tourists on Fifth Avenue in front of Trump Tower, to tell the world: 

DONALD TRUMP IS OUR PRESIDENT AND MUST BE GIVEN A CHANCE TO LEAD.

Since President Trump’s inauguration, there have been hundreds of anti-Trump rallies around the country, many of them violent and filled with language not worthy of the gutter. Yesterday, those who believe in democracy and the rule of law said, “enough is enough.” President Trump was elected democratically, according to the laws of our country, and it is time for the entire nation to accept it.

 AFSI’s Co-Executive Director, Helen Freedman, was one of the many speakers at the pro-Trump rally. Carrying an Israeli flag, she emphasized that the USA and JerUSAlem are entwined, since USA makes up the middle letters of Israel’s capital city. She also stressed the promises Trump made while campaigning regarding moving the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and keeping a hands-off policy regarding settlement building. The crowd was with her all the way.

Organizers of  the pro-Trump Rally said they came to honor President Trump and to show support for the “electoral college process AND to show pride in America.” That they did.  Bravo!

Immigration Protestors-Thousands Jam Battery Park NYC

This was a protest ignited and  led by FAKE News.  Fake threats. Fed by unwarranted Fears.

January 29, 2017 – 2 pm

battery-park-info

I arrived, surrounded by scores of eager “fools and tools”, pathetic do-gooders, who RUSHed down the narrow side-streets of Lower Manhattan, signs in hand, faces laughing (and/or passionate).

They were coming to a “Yuge” Immigration protest against “all things TRUMP.” The disaffected youth. Their angry elders. PULLED like the brain-dead Eloi of HG Wells OR … like mindless lemmings- to-the-sea… choose one or all of the above… it was a PARTY!


(It was BIZARRE)

VIDEO

Once again – just as the Womens’ Hate March and Michael Moore’s equally hateful Pre-Inauguration protest have revealed- this Battery Park event was, also, a coming together of white, educated- bored elite.


Yes, you will see a smattering of people-of-color assembled by the SEIU-Workers Party/Soc/Commie factions. (I saw this as I left)

The facts are: this is a WHITE fascist-led, down-with-America crowd. Giddy-gleeful with this new-found purpose-for-living.

And sad. Misled.

Betrayed….

But … by whom?

VIDEO

There was one brave patriot who stood calmly within the crowds, holding his signs high.

Eventually some within the crowd made it their sacred duty to cover his sign with signs and even bags.  ( … they tried …)

Part 1- Flickr slide show

DSC_6970-2

I saw “red people” – at Battery Park – Commies. LOTS of them. Comrades-in-arms.

Soc.Commie. Prog. Facisti, manipulating protest after protest.

VIDEO

If what just happened at NYU and Berkeley, riots to end all forms of free speech, if they accelerate – aided by the “non violent” thousands filling our parks and streets, then the future of our Republic is seriously at-risk.

These are the “fools”who  dutifully bring their hand-made signs and …

…. stand for hours, cheering their 1984 news-speak leaders on to more and more rebellion.

Created by decades of naivete, rolling over, looking away, believing everyone has good intentions and foolishly believing that what has happened in Europe couldn’t happen here.

Well, it has. Even these snowflakes may finally realize they too are no longer safe from real, hard-core anarchy.  The VIOLENT anti-fa factions have exploded on the State-side scene. They will eat their own if necessary .

It is NOT a game. Not for these black-clad and MASKED terrorists. Anarchists who never sleep.

Part 2 – Flickr slide show

DSC_7058

Can the Trump Presidency turn back the clock on what has burrowed deep into our culture? Can the America that voted for him HOPE to see that CHANGE happen? Is it too late.

Part 3 – Flickr slide show

DSC_7116-1

So many foolish faces. Stern, intense. 10,000 the police say. The Resistance intransigent. Unwillingly to compromise.

Their attacks on America grow stronger each day. They are RIGHT and GOOD – Every one else is bad

Part 4 – Flickr slide show

DSC_7254

WILL there be war in the streets of America. Will there be a Banana Republic uprising. Like the Bolsheviks (a minority) took control.  They have a plan.

First up – murder the anti-fas (you can’t control them – they’ve done their job)  Next, disarm the kulaks –  the middle class (Che-style) The soc/COMMIE/ facisti will be “In CHARGE”…  Or… Maybe NOT.

America has said NO to Left at the ballot-box. WE are the Revolution! If the Republicans hold firm against the jaws of anarchy. We can win.

The Time to act is NOW …. To Save the Republic. “Whose Streets- Our Streets” … think about it….
