May Day NYC 2019: Workers + Immigrants Rise Together (Pics-Vids)

May 1, 2019.  Commie Day NYC

 

 

 

 

 

A number of NYC Unions converged at Columbus Circle – across from Trump International Hotel – to shill for Socialism/Communism.

Socialism in our Lifetime!

Workers Unite!

                                         ILLEGALS Unite.

Eventually the Marxists of many stripes marched to Trump Tower – at 5th Avenue & 56th st. (police didn’t let them get as far as Trump Tower – stopping them at 58th st). Can see a more comprehensive view of banners and signs in video:

Back to Columbus Circle: Nearly a dozen community advocate groups – AKA COMMUNIST – rallied (s0 they say) for worker and immigrant rights. For The Workers. For The People. “Democrats. Republicans. Class enemies Of Workers and Oppressed

The Workers Face Book propaganda:

“On International Workers’ Day, join our contingent at the May Day NYC: Workers + Immigrants, We Rise Together rally and march as we reaffirm our solidarity with New York City’s immigrant communities against racist ICE harassment, economic exploitation, and the continued xenophobic aggression of the Trump administration.

“We are socialists because we share a vision of a humane social order based on popular control of resources and production, economic planning, equitable distribution, feminism, racial equality, and non-oppressive relationships.”

“We are socialists because we are opposed to an economy organized for private profit that produces gross inequalities of wealth and power, discrimination based on race and sex, and brutality and violence in defense of the status quo … we believe that only democratic movements and socialist parties can lead the way to a better world.”

VIDEO – a  Prayer to Herstory  and – whatever god you pray to.  Religious Socialism and Liberation Theology.

“The Religious Socialism Working Group conducts educational work both among socialists of faith to explore religious roots of socialism and among our natural allies in progressive faith communities to “connect the dots” between social, economic, and racial justice and socialism. We also work in coalition with faith-based social justice groups. To get involved, email religious.socialism [a] socialists.nyc.”

++PART TWO++

As I walked ‘cross 59th to the Plaza Hotel for the next protest, I caught a glimpse of the new location for the hansom cabs, forced on them by Mayor di Blasio.

Once at the Plaza, I found the JDL-NY protesting China’s Uyghur Genocide:

“An estimated one million Uyghurs ( “wiggers”) a predominantly Muslim ethnic minority in western China, are being held in camps across the region, according to a US congressional report. The Chinese government has never explained the disappearances, which began in 2017, nor said how many people are being held in the camps, which they insist are “vocational training centers” that local “students” are happy to attend. “[CNN]

Some of those attending the China Fashion Gala managed to glance at our signs as they went in.

“Each year, China Fashion Gala brings together a diverse community of fashion icons, international influencers, business leaders, and celebrities to recognize outstanding contributions to Chinese design and innovation and to support the next generation of designers and leaders.”

HISTORY: “Founded in 1926 by Chinese reformers Hu Shi, K.P. Wen, and John Dewey, China Institute is the oldest bi-cultural, non-profit organization in America to focus exclusively on China.”

One Tibetan fellow thanked the JDL for being there. He also spoke  about the decades of abuse the Tibetans have suffered under the Chinese occupation.

[“In 1950, the newly established Communist regime in China invaded Tibet, which was rich in natural resources and had a strategically important border with India.”]

Side Note: As the MARCH  of the Commie Brigades passed by the Plaza …. as planned …. a couple of Communist Public Housing advocates stopped to chat …. impressed with the JDL signs.

Freedom Socialists-Marxists “Against Racism and Fascism” NYC

The Freedom Socialists (Marxist) and a March Against Racism and Fascism at noon in Foley Plaza, Saturday March 16, 2019.

There were many speakers. I recorded portions of a few.

The NYPD didn’t separate the patriots from the Marxists, still the getting too close to the speakers’ stage might not be tolerated by the soc.commie/prog/fasciti. keep moving is often the best advise.

Most of the time I hung further back where the outreach took place – they must bring more fools in to the “anti-Fascist” fold.

Ah, yes. The commies promote a police review board. Can’t wait. And familiar Marxist reading material was For Sale … as usual.

The PATRIOTS boldly flew flags and held signs in support of President Trump.

Patriots supporting our country and our President always annoys the orange arm-band anti-fascist “police”.

Our side managed to record interviews with the commies. Usually we’re chased away. (Barely Informed With Elad interviewing Jennie Heinz)


Though one tall miscreant briefly blocked Elad from his camera. [You can see the same guy in action at the top of Elad’s interview tape at 00:18 (very funny) – https://youtu.be/nh-q0uX_0Sg]

VIDEO -WalterHawk” Newsome – Chairman BLM NY. From the Bronx. Grew up in a devout Christian household but spewed the usual hate-speech .[https://www.blacklivesmattergreaterny.com]

TRANSCRIPT: “Shout out to everybody that’s here (names groups) I’m talkin’ about people who really show up for Black People – all the time. People who always show up for black people All the Time. Right? You wanta learn a quick lesson in racism – take a look around you – take a look around you. If this was a march for immigrants right or women’s rights, there’d people people all the way back there. When you talk about 400 years of oppression of the black woman and the black man, ain’t nobody got time for that. (crowd -they don’t wanta come) They got time for St Patrick’s day. They got time for this, they got time for that.Let me tell y’all a little joke, all right. I always bug out when I see black people for st patrick’s day, all right. Cause you got the West Indian parade in Bklyn. Right. You got the African American Day Parade in Harlem. and I don’t see Irish people showing up with Red black and green on (Blk African MARXIST COLORS) So I’m like (scoffs) who the fuck are you coonin’ for? Like cut that shit out. Stop supporting people who don’t support you. (big pause) I just had an argument with that right-wing dude that’s runnin’ around trying to …

(my video begins here)  … interview people. Right?. I love to fight with them. I’m gonna tell you true, I love to confront them. You know why? Because I went from a GED to a law degree. Right? So, I learned how to take this mind and what I ‘cummulated in the Bronx and apply it to the law and to the facts and that’s the way I challenge them. And if you put the facts of, against white supremacy they lose every time (CHEERS) (shouting) The numbers and the irrefutable lesson, the irrefutable evidence is on our side every time! (cheers) We ran around saying that police in America are racist for years! Donald Trump passes the First Step Act. Do you know the first endorser, Fraternal order of Police (boo) Pay attention. The PEOPLE who have been saying we were lying all along endorsed a bill that said racism exists in policing. Are you fucking kidding me? The facts, y’all, it’s the facts that are on our side. The facts that brown and black blood is spilled all the time and no one cares. (quieter) I talk when I talk because it’s the truth. You have candidates who run on Black Lives Matter platforms, they get elected and they don’t say Black Lives matter no more. If you think I’m lying, check their time-lines. I like Bernie. I like Bernie, right? But, you got four other candidates talking about reparations. Reparations in a real way, four other candidates. And Bernie Sanders say he’s not for it. Health care’s a problem, right a check. Any other problem, right a check. Black people …. need some sort of redress. Naw we ain’t got no money for dat. That’s bull-shit. So let’s ask this Jewish man if he was against reparations for Jewish people. (no response) I like it when people go quiet, that’s how I’d know when I’m makin’ fuckin’ sense. Cause that’s the reality that’s sinkin’ in. So, what I’m tellin’ y’all is, right now, we have to confront the racists and these fascists at every turn. They show up at our rallies. We show up ta deirs. You understand me? I don’t give a fuck. I go to Fox News. I go to a fuckin’ KKK rally. I go anywhere to stand on this truth. Fearless! (cheers) Because I’ll fight with facts and I’ll fight with my hands. And if any a y’all seen the footage in Charlottesville, you saw us on the front lines. You saw these coloreds on the front lines. We’re not here to play. We’re not here to play. (pause – light cheers) People tell me about love. Yeah, I got love. For y’all. I got love for my community. And right now, I tell y’all the truth, it’s time to go in to these communities and build. You understand? Cause we gotta reprogram the way black folks think. You end systemic racism tomorrow, we still got some serious problem. Another anecdote for y’all. You go to any school, anywhere in this country and …  it’s a white neighborhood … and you show me where the staff at that school and the principal are mostly black or brown. You don’t see that shit. And I love y’all teachers out here, but the bottom line is you go to any school in the Bronx, Harlem and the majority of the faculty and the staff is WHITE. Nah! I reject that shit. You … these NGOs that are put there to serve our people and they’re ran by White People. You might be doin’ good work, but if you really care you would put an impactin’ brown or black woman in that director’s position. This is all facts. We need to run our community. O.K.? I got love for my Jewish brothers and sisters, but ‘cha go out in Brooklyn and their communities, you ain’t gonna find black landlords. You ain’t gonna find black stores. But, ‘chu go in OUR communities and everybody owns everything except for US. This is the shit I’m tryin’ ta change. Now I’ll fight legislature, but I’m gonna build up black people.  If you love me, (fuck) with me. If you love the people, come out and join me. But I stand here and I say thank each and every one of you for giving up your Saturday to stand against racism and fascism and all those fuckers who were put here to oppress us. And these people who act like their words don’t have any ramifications and repercussions. We stand against all that. And from the BOTTOM of my heart I say Black Power. (cheers) Black Power! When I say Black Lives y’all say “matter”. Black Lives.  (crowd) “matter”. Black Lives (crowd) “matter”. When I say Black Lives y’all say “matter”. Black Lives (crowd) “matter”. Black Lives (crowd) “matter”. And FUCK Donald Trump. (cheers)

What is the First Step Act – [https://www.jurist.org/news/2018/12/president-trump-signs-criminal-justice-reform-first-step-act-into-law/] a bipartisan criminal justice reform bill aimed at reducing recidivism and refining sentencing laws and harsh penalties. The First Step Act will help prepare inmates to successfully rejoin society and enact common sense sentencing reforms to make our justice system fairer for all Americans,” said a White House statement.

VIDEO: Emily Woo YamasakiFreedom Socialist Party –UAW 2320 – civilian review board. She is a queer socialist feminist organizer.  Her experience as a film and stage actress illuminates how capitalism exploits people of color and women through race and sex stereotyping. [https://socialism.com/fs-article/asian-american-women-on-the-move/]

She was the opening speaker “against racism and fascism”

TRANSCRIPT: I’m a proud career socialist feminist and unionist of color. And what is a socialist and communist but a defender of the working class against the fascists. We’re so glad to see unionists here. And feminists and freedom fighters of all colors. [reads the mourns list – killings in NZ, N.C. Christians, Jews, Muslims] all acts by self-proclaimed white supremacists. And unfortunately the lists of such horrors does not end there. But what I want to focus on today is the root of fascism (points at something – case in point) ….. Us and the world … racism is a pillar of fascism. African Americans are no strangers to fascism and right wing terror. The Klan is an ugly part of American history. The first police force in the country was formed to catch run away slaves and prevent slave revolts. … fighting men in white hoods as well as men in blue. It’s also an important part of our history. It’s not always easy to work across the color lines but now more than ever we need to be doing that … people of color need to stand shoulder to shoulder with our white comrades

(my video)  … the common enemy, the corporate profiteers of capitalism. And this takes us to the very root of fascism. without capitalism there would be no fascism and we can blame the democrats as well as the republicans for propping up capitalism … and we can blame Trump and his administration for emboldening the shock troops of the ruling 1%, like the Proud Boys. Just as in Nazi Germany, fascism needs scape goats …. the ultimate goal of fascism is actually to smash the power of unions and the working class. But can we defeat the right wing? Yes We Can. […] We exercise OUR First Amendment rights.[…]

We’re not living under fascism YET. The fascists are in process of building their own united front. And they’re well funded. And when it comes to who they target, they don’t leave anyone out. So the very survival of their targets, that’s all of us here, depends on our building a broad democratic front to stop the storm troopers in their tracks. Together we can defeat the fascist threat. We are many, you are few! We are many, you are few! Beat back the fascist attack. Beat back the fascist attack.”

VIDEO: Outlive Them NYC. Speaker’s name, Serona of CUNY

TRANSCRIPT: “After the Pittsburgh pogram – at Union Square – words of “thought and prayers” and “voting”. We were so angry and full of rage. We got together to decide what we could do to ELIMINATE the Far Right, to organize in NYC. Fascism is not to be debated, it is to be defeated, continuing our work organizing against the far-right in NYC through rapid response networks, popular education, and community outreach. Fascism is a threat to our survival … to every one standing here. Whether it’s racist, sexist killer-cops, on the streets of NYC. Concentration camps at the border or radicalized far right vigilanti violence against our communities, we have literally no choice but to win. This fascism violence, the export of American fascism globally and white supremacy to other nations in the world is not an aberration of a normally peaceful society.”

(my video) This is hegemonic white, Christian capitalism working exactly as intended … Take back our power

” … they want us to feel powerless. Further alienated from each other. They want us to be afraid to go to shul … trying to take back its power … We must not cede an inch of this city to the far right. Whether in Brooklyn or Riverdale or Woodside, not a inch of the streets. We need to kick them out of our work places, to call them out. And we’re gonna take care of them if they’re in high schools or wherever. A variety of tactics [….] In the Mishna, whoever takes a human life is considered to have destroyed a world. And whoever saves a human life is considered as if he saved a world. And in the KORAN, it says, whoever kills a soul, it is as if he has slayed mankind entirely and whoever saves a soul it is as though he has saved mankind entirely. I’m here to represent Jewish solidarity with Muslims [….] NY is built on and run on the backs of those who are largely non-white. We must stand up and we must win. We’re going to win. I can feel it. We are going to win. We’re going to eliminate fascism from the streets of NYC and globally restructure the entire world.”

Jay Walker: LGBTQ – Gays against Guns (tall man on the right)

TRANSCRIPT: ” I’m here as a proud black man and proud gay man who stands up against the horror we have been living through the last few years, every single day….. this growing fascism, this growing authoritarianism, this unleashing of hatred and bigotry and anti-Semitism and Islamophobia that has swept across our country. Hate crimes have grown at an  astronomical proportion over the last couple of years and there is no mystery as to why it has happened. We have a President who campaigned on hatred (of) disabled… misogyny… and we wonder why people are getting shot all over this country, non- stop. … Why synagogues are being defaced with swastikas … and why hijabs are being ripped off. There is no mystery. “

(my video begins here) But for St Patrick’s day parade I think we would have a lot more people here. But, we’re here and we’re growing. And we will continue to grow. And we continue to stand tall. And we will continue to not be afraid of a few maggots in a few red hats waving a few stupid flags around. Because we know that even though this country has never lived up to the ideal on which it was founded. Never has. We know if we hold these ideas in our hearts and our minds and our souls. And we stand tall. Keep speaking truth to the power that one day – may not be for a hundred years from now – we will actually have the America that actually stands for America.

“There’s a lot of work that needs to be done – there’s a hell of a lot of work that needs to be done over the next two years, so we can insure that we get this monster out of office as soon as possible. “

In conclusion: This Marxist/Fascist rally was hosted by NYC Democratic Socialists of America and Outlive Them NYC

They asked: “What is fascism — and how can we collectively practice anti-fascism in everyday life?

Far Right activity is growing in our city: Hate crimes have risen 120% compared to this time last year. White nationalists are actively recruiting in all five boroughs.

Racist, Islamophobic, and anti-Semitic violence presents a clear and present danger to all of our communities. Yet it continues to be met with general impunity and indifference. It is more urgent than ever that we stand united and in solidarity with one another in the face of racist terror.

Fascism cannot be debated – only addressed directly and defeated. Join us and learn the skills we all need to defeat the far-right, neo-Nazis, white nationalists and fascists of our day.”

March on Wall Street – Defend Venezuela – Stop U.S. War Machine

“No War ON Venezuela” means, for the left, that all aggression begins and ends with the U. S. war mongers. They are responsible for all wars and abuses in Venezuela. Not their despot, Maduro. If you want food and medicine? Look to socialism not  capitalism. The people are starving because the greedy U.S. capitalistas thrive on war. Say no to regime change wars!!

Hosted by International Action Center [Face Book] the #23Feb “March on Wall Street” was meant to expose the force behind the coup in Venezuela: the U.S. ruling class!” No War on Venezuela!

@nowaronvenezuela
“The weekend of February 23 – the 1 month anniversary of the U.S.-backed coup attempt in Venezuela – will marked by internationally co-ordinated actions in solidarity with the people of Venezuela and against the U.S., Wall Street and the Pentagon’s drive to war.”

The Protest at 40 Wall Street. Feb 23, 2019. Patriots gathered to challenge the soc/commie lies.

“The cost of renouncing US citizenship is the highest in the world – especially since so many US citizens renounce. I was in Langkawi, Malaysia, when the US government announced that it was going to raise the fee to renounce citizenship from $450 to $2,350.

“What caused Venezuela economic crisis? Corruption. Discontent with corruption was cited by opposition-aligned groups as one of the reasons for the 2014Venezuelan protests. Venezuela used to be a wealthy nation of Latin America, but a corrupt system along with drop in oil prices drove the country into political and economic crisis.”

…. calls himself the “interim president” of Venezuela, faces possible arrest upon return after he slipped out of the country in violation of a Supreme Court order to stay within the country’s borders.

Guaido left Venezuela last week to join “aid” convoys in Colombia and then met with US Vice President Mike Pence as well as other regional leaders to step up pressure on Maduro to resign.

Maduro’s government has closed borders with Brazil and Colombia in order to block what he says is an attempt by the US to proceed with its regime change plans.

Russia and China vetoed on Thursday a US and European-backed resolution at the United Nations that would have called for new presidential elections in Venezuela and unimpeded deliveries of humanitarian aid.

Besides Russia and China, countries like Iran and Turkey have also backed Maduro.” [Press TV – Iran News Service]

“As one of the first deserters, he was quickly taken in and presented to Guaido, who had sneaked across the border into Colombia to oversee the aid launch.

Torres said he stood at attention and pledged his loyalty to the 35-year-old lawmaker recognized as Venezuela’s interim president by over 50 nations, including the United States and many Latin American countries.

“We’re still in time to change history,” he said Guaido told him.

For Gomez, the breaking point came when he saw another National Guardsman hit in the face by a fire bomb. Even though he was badly injured, commanders wouldn’t call an ambulance to take him to the hospital, Gomez said. Fearing what might happen if he himself was struck by protesters, he decided to flee. “They wouldn’t have done anything for me,” Gomez said.” [NBC News]

Defectors from Venezuela hang up their uniforms. [Video link at Sky.com]

“Venezuelan military defectors say people are starving to death. They condemn President Maduro as the US again gives its backing to opposition leader Juan Guaido.

The authorities in Colombia says more than 160 members of the armed forces have deserted. Sitting alongside their national guard, navy and police uniforms, one man who spent 30 years in the navy, said he believes more senior people will depart and ultimately weaken Maduro’s leadership.” [Sky News]

Final Question; When did Venezuela become communist?

“The Communist Party of Venezuela (Spanish: Partido Comunista de Venezuela, PCV) is a communist party and the oldest continuously existing party in Venezuela. It remained the main leftist political party in Venezuela from its foundation in 1931 until it split into rival factions in 1971.

NEXT a LONG list of #23Feb Marxist/Socialist Orgs :

Over 120 organizations and 2000 individuals have signed on to build Globally Coordinated Actions on Saturday#23Feb in defense of Venezuela against U.S. imperialist aggression and the coup of U.S. puppet Juan Guaidó.

I was forged in the heat of popular and union struggles in a Venezuela submerged in exclusion and inequality. I am no tycoon; I am a worker of mind and heart. Today I have the great privilege of presiding over the new Venezuela, rooted in a model of inclusive development and social equality, which Comandante Hugo Chávez forged starting in 1998, inspired by the legacy of Simón Bolivar.”

Pray for the People of Venezuela

American Socialists Rally to Free Ahmad Sa’adat and all “Palestinian” prisoners!

Jan 15, 2019. Washington Sq. Protestors lead by Samidoun gathered in Washington Sq ranting about “Palestinian” prisoner Ahmad Sa’adat. However, it was “Palestine” that put this guy, Sa’adat, in prison followed by Israeli incarceration. But, ONLY Israel is the bad guy. Sa’adat is a VICTIM of the Israeli OCCUPIERS, not “Palestine”

These protestors are more about spewing their anti-Jewish, anti-Israel agit-prop [If you repeat a lie often enough it becomes PALESTINE] and less about these prisoners who deserve incarceration.

The Samidoun mantra: “We urge you to join us for an International Week of Action between January 15 and 22, 2019 to free Ahmad Sa’adat and all Palestinian prisoners!” [samidoun] ….. “US” refers to their comrades:Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO) is a national organization of revolutionaries fighting for socialism in the United States. Our home is in the working class.”[FRSO]

UPDATE: Thank you President Trump for your SOTU speech. Thank you for stating that the United States will NEVER be a Socialist country.  But, revolutionaries like the FRSO will never stop subverting America. As unimportant as a protest like this may seem, the American Socialists know every protest is an opportunity to gain new recruits.

Short video of the protest next:

The JDL-NY (Jewish Defense League) was there supporting Israel while the soc/commie/leftists falsely claimed Israel to be an occupier. [The Judea, Samaria,West Bank controversy:wiki]

[Jerusalem Post] “There was never a Palestinian state nor political entity that belonged to the Palestinians. Historically, Judea and Samaria, commonly known as the West Bank, belongs to the Jewish people.

According to the evolution of international agreements from 1917 until 1947, the land of Israel was divided into three states:  Jordan, which is east of the Jordan River, and a Jewish and Arab state to share the land west of the Jordan River.

This painful compromise shrunk the size of Israel by over 75% but the Arabs refused launching a war of aggression against the re-established state of Israel in 1948. Jordan occupied the area of Judea and Samaria and illegally annexed it.

It should be emphasized that the Palestinians never claimed to establish a Palestinian state following the Jordanian annexation (…) they wanted to establish an Arab state instead of the state of Israel, the land they previously refused and consequently lost in the 1948 war.” [Jerusalem Post]

In Conclusion: The Samidoun “Palestinian” Prisoner Solidarity Network claims “the ‘Palestinian’ Authority kidnapped Sa’adat under false pretenses and imprisoned him for four years … before its prison was attacked by  the Israeli “occupation” …  leading to the repeated “imprisonment” of “Palestinians” for their political involvement by the PA. The JDL-NY does not suffer these lies quietly.


Love those double-sided signs

After a violent attack on the PA’s Jericho prison in 2006 (…) Sa’adat was sentenced to 30 years in prison; convicted in an Israeli military court of leading a prohibited organization and “incitement.

“Sa’adat is a leader in the Palestinian prisoners’ movement and the Palestinian national liberation movement (…) He stands alongside nearly 6,000 fellow Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli jails (…) he is a symbol of Palestinian, Arab and internationalist resistance to capitalism, racism, apartheid and colonization.”

 “As long as it continues to exist, Israel will be a prison for the Palestinian people. But the day of liberation is coming and we can help bring it closer. (Soc/Commie instigator, Joe Catron)

“Join us in a collective call for the freedom of Ahmad Sa’adat and all Palestinian Prisoners. Join us to build the global grassroots campaign for boycott, divestment and sanctions from Israel and complicit corporations. Join us to fight for an end to aid and support for the Israeli occupation that has been confiscating land and lives for over 70 years.”

 The Lies. The never ending Jew-hating lies. Still.

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S STRIKE NYC – SOCIALISTS “Stand with Caravan women”

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S STRIKE NYC Caravan Day of Action –  Nov, 25, 3018  (2 PM – 4 PM) New York Public Library [Hosted by International Women’s Strike NYC/ Paro Internacional de Mujeres NYC

 The National Day of Action, in solidarity with the Central American refugee caravan, “The refugee caravan, and the women and queer people within it, are exposed to the violence of Mexican authorities, of drug cartels, of border patrol and of the army Trump deployed along the border.”

As activists working around migration rights, they rallied at the New York Public Library with a simple message, “Violence against women is not only domestic and interpersonal violence, it is also the violence of borders, police, and army.”

Patriots gathered in support of President Trump and LEGAL immigration. [Flickr slide show – Part 1] While waiting for socialists to arrive, New York was unique as always (see pictures). Then, the patriots arrived followed by the socialists.  Soon the steps of the library were filled with socialists demanding: don’t be MEAN, support OPEN BORDERS.

DSC_8977

[Lloyd Marcus] “Today, a powerful leftist (Democrats, Hollywood, and Fake news) weapon to overrule common-sense and further their anti-America agenda is the word “mean.” Far too many Republicans and conservatives regard being declared mean by leftists an immediate stop sign, preventing the enforcement of our laws and blocking the implementation of common-sense solutions good for America. Fully supported by American leftists, illegals are saying, “screw you America.

Americans have always eventually done the right thing – freed the slaves, gave women the right to vote, and so on. While we are an extremely compassionate people, throughout our history we have made adult common-sense decisions to preserve our homeland and act as good stewards of God’s gift of America.”  [Lloyd Marcus]

Flickr Part 2 – The socialists blocked steps to Fifth avenue library. Then blocked the city sidewalks marching to Mexican consulate and finally blocked the sidewalk at consulate, as well.

DSC_8974-1

Statement from “The International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women” […] “Hundreds of thousands of women around the world will mobilize and march … to protest the systematic femicides in the areas of the Mexican maquilladoras; the rape, torture and killing of women refugees in Lybian detention camp; rampant domestic violence and abuse in Europe; the rise of the far-right and its attacks on women’s and queer people’s liberties and safety in Brazil, Poland, Italy, the United States.”

Become UnGovernable! Smash ICE. Workers Revolt!

Hot topics of protest included Trump, the caravan, illegal migration, border patrol, ICE, the wall and yes — even Palestine …

Most importantly, while stirring their fellow socialists to action, one speaker reminded “We may not see success in our lifetime, but it will happen. Socialism will never give up.

They repeat often, We stand in solidarity with the caravan, with its women and queer people.

Solidarity is Our Weapon!#feminism4the99

“U.S. Customs and Border Protection closed a section of the southern border with Mexico and fired tear gas at a group of migrants that tried to breach a fence separating the two countries. “Video footage show hundreds of migrants rushing toward the U.S. border. CNN reported that road and pedestrian bridge access at the San Ysidro port had been closed.”  [NY Post]

Marching south on Fifth Avenue, the socialists finally stopped outside the Mexican Consulate. (Not happy with Mexico either)

America, know thy enemy: MEChA, Atzlan. La Raza.  Sanctuary Cities nurtured by Open Border anarchists. Taking America down one city, one State at a time.

As Paris burns,  “At least 412 people were arrested and 133 injured. Six buildings were set ablaze and nearly 190 fires were put out. Protesters scaled the Arc de Triomphe in central Paris …” (Anarchy. It’s global.)


Where socialism invades, violence follows. “(Violence) has nothing to do with the peaceful expression of a legitimate anger” and “no cause justifies” attacks on police or pillaging stores and burning buildings …” [Washington Times]


[World Socialist web site, protests labels] “Whether they are labeled … “ultra-left” or neo-Nazis … they are under the broad umbrella of socialism …  The movement was totally absorbed by extreme left militants. One could hear the words ‘Death to capitalism!’ ”

Meanwhile socialists in the States are managing to elect their insurgents to Congress. Avoiding riots in the streets. (For now) Stealth is seductive, winning over the elites who then elect them to power. (Remember, Don’t Be Mean!)


Patience, decades of patience, as socialism marches freedom to the ovens.

You Can’t Fire The Truth- NYC Leftists Protest in Support of Mueller

November 8, 2018 (5- 9 pm) Duffy Square. NYC. Hosted by Action Group Network. Hysterical Leftists protested and marched in support of Mueller, demanding Whitaker ‘must recuse’; screeching on and on about a free press, Trump and Fascism.

Democracy was alive and well across the country and thousands were in Time’s Square for immediate action. So many groups mobilized the resisters … to demand protection for Mueller’s investigation into trumps collusion with Russia.” [link quote]

“As you know, hours ago, Attorney General Jeff Sessions was forced out. In his place, Donald Trump has decided to appoint a partisan loyalist who has published op-eds slamming Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. .” [Face Book]

Barnard College hosts anti-Israel panel “BREAKING BARS: Fighting Incarceration from the U.S. to Palestine”

Thursday August 2, 2018 (7:00 PM – 9:00 PM) Barnard College, New York City, the latest bastion of higher-ed to become a shameful conduit for anti-Israel animus.

They offered an intimate discussion between two groups on the front-lines —  fighting incarceration and supporting prisoners — one in Palestine, the other in the U.S. — and how we can understand these shared systems of domination and resist them.” [Algemeiner]

Addameer (Arabic for conscience), is a Ramallah-based outfit accused of ties with the “Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).

Barnard chose to “Stand with ADDAMEER”, a “Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association” working for “political prisoners” held in Israeli and Palestinian prisons. “Addameer vs Israel“.

How much more “effed up” can our centers of education become?

The New JDL- NY was there, outside Barnard, in protest and to Stand With Israel.

“…. after a “difficult past semester” — during which Barnard students voted to endorse a divestment campaign against Israel in a referendum — “it is dismaying to see the College further used to discomfort members of its community.” [Algemeiner]

Barnard College, shame on you.

Addameer has called attempts to link it to the PFLP part of a “smear” campaign. According to Jewish Virtual Library, the PFLP has been involved in various suicide bombings, airplane hijackings and an assassination.” [Jewish Journal]


For more of the New  JDL protest, see Flickr slide show

DSC_7382

Addameer, according to NGO Monitor, has several members who are either currently in Addameer, or were formerly in the organization, that have extensive ties with the PFLP.

For instance, Addameer’s chairperson, Abdul-latif Ghaith, is currently in the midst of an Israeli travel ban due to his PFLP membership. Addameer vice-chairperson Khalida Jarrar was convicted of belonging to the PFLP and calling for violence against Israeli soldiers, serving prison time as a result.

Yacoub Odeh,an Addameer board member, was sentenced to life in prison for his PFLP membership and was only released as part of a prisoner exchange.

Barnard College to Host Prisoners’ Group Accused of Ties With Palestinian Terrorists

The speakers this evening were:

  • Lana Ramadan, Addameer’s International Advocacy Officer, was born in Dheisheh refugee camp, near Bethlehem in the West Bank. She’s worked with Badil Refugee Resource Centre and been active in community activities, such as Dabke. She studied Human Rights and International Law in the joint Al Quds University and Bard College program and has a Master in Human Rights from London School of Economics.
  • David Joseph Deutch, or DJ, Addameer’s Advocacy Coordinator, is a native of Australia who has worked with indigenous Australian youth, asylum seeker children, Amnesty International Australia and the UN in New York and Palestine. He is now Addameer’s Advocacy Coordinator. He studied Philosophy and Religious Studies at the University of Sydney and has a Master in Public Administration at Columbia University in New York.
  • Laura Whitehorn served 14+ years(of a 20 year sentence) in US federal prison as an “anti-imperialist political prisoner“. She was convicted for the “Resistance Conspiracy” case, which involved attacks on US and Israeli military installations and companies. [FYI- she BOMBED the headquarters of the Israeli Aircraft Industry right here in NYC]  In 2016, she was part of a delegation with other former “political prisoners”, labor organizers, and academics to Palestine.

Laura Whitehorn is a proud anti-Zionist Jew.  She was charged with conspiracy to influence, change, and protest policies and practices of the United States government by violent and illegal means

In the 60s, Whitehorn was active in the “civil rights” movement, supported the Black Panther Party, the Black Liberation Movement, the New Afrikan Independence Movement and Puerto Rican IndependenceWhitehorn also lists fighting the KKK and organized white supremacy.

She advocates the creation of ANOTHER Islamic State – in the Middle East, those “BASTIONS of Equality!

The Adameer members at Barnard were joined by Release Aging People in Prison – RAPP ; Jewish Voice for Peace-New York City.

Release Aging People in Prison/RAPP works to end mass incarceration and promote racial justice by getting elderly and infirm people out of prison.

Links: Release Aging People in Prison – RAPP; Jewish Voice for Peace-New York City; Jewish Voice for Peace; Addameer Website; Face book; twitter

The Barnard fools and tools welcomed these terrorist organizations, presenting them as voices of reason and proclaiming “Incarceration to be a system of domination”.

The new Barnard school motto, perhaps: “Breaking Bars. RESIST! Resist! Resist!”

Ocasio-Cortez leads panel “Immigrant Arts & Women’s Empowerment Summit” 2018 at Jewish Heritage Museum

Day 2 of the “Immigrant Arts & Women’s Empowerment Summit 2018″ at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in lower Manhattan. August 7, 2018. 10:30 am.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was on a panel named: The Future is Female: Mobilizing and Organizing Women Through The Arts”.

We are ALL Immigrants was the meme of the day, presented by the Immigrant Arts Coalition. (click picture to enlarge)


Entertainment unions were on hand as well: Local 802 (Musicians Union) and SAG/AFTRA as well as the Writers Guild. (click picture on right to enlarge/ link to sag -aftra readable version on left)

Barbara D. Underwood, NY State Attorney General,
opened with a very brief speech:

Underwood mentioned, DACA Dreamers, Right to Choose, teen immigrants. Then she read lyrics from Rodger & Hammerstein’s “Carefully Taught”. Quoted the Statue of Liberty poem . Shared that, as Attorney General, she is proud of battles fought to help our communities. Stressed that conversations with artists here and abroad, important contributions.

Before the panel began, the chairs in the room went through an embarrassing removal of unused seats. (Obviously attendance was not what they expected).


The loud clanking of the chair removal, the rows of chairs and the panel table rearranged, went on for awhile. Finally, rows of chairs were added down front, closer to the panel. This was the last shuffle before the panel commenced.

The introduction to the panel said this was a panel of six sisters, using arts to mobilize women. (She affectionately shared Puerto Rican  sisterhood with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez).

Some quotes from Ruth Messinger, who seemed to be the grand dame of the panel: “Honor those who were originally on this planet. We need to learn to listen. Telling stories. Use the arts to tell their story. Social Change repeats over and over. We’re all by-standers. Can’t afford to be by-standers. Where do you stand? Put yourself forward. Some will disagree with you, but only way change is made. Every person in country is an immigrant. They don’t all know it. Stories lost (through the generations/assimilation) We’re from “here” is a story lost. What will they (can) they teach? 2020 is soon here. VOTE. You must!

The New JDL NY was outside the Museum of Jewish Heritage while this reporter was inside to hear the panel that included the Dem-Socialist flavor of the month, Alexandria Ocasio-CortezThis was the best picture I could capture of the JDL.

Do appreciate this link to a twitter picture

The panel.  The summit. Immigrants In America. The Future. Women. The Arts.

Part 1 video. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was on a panel named: The Future is Female: Mobilizing and Organizing Women Through The Arts”.

Transcribed excerpts from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, “It’s because there’s so much fear over being different in our politics […] and, I think, that what we hadn’t shown is that you can really lean into who you are and not be afraid of being ostracized. Because, I think, people are just kind of craving any sort of unique voice right now. […] yeah, I feel like, really,  often times, especially in political language, there’s always this, this opposite (uh) impulse. Like a consultant will come in and say, “Oh,we have to compensate for everything that you are.” You know (laughter) so if your like a first generation immigrant and they’ll like over-compensate with (like) the super-Americana (like) patriotic, stars and stripes kind a thing. And (uh) and it’s because — and they’re implicitly telling you what they think you’re not, because of who you are. Instead of saying you could be all of those things. You know, you can be a first generation patriot, if, you know, if that’s who you are. Because you can be these things. And we are (in) contradictions. But yeah, sometimes if, if you’re like (um) you know, if you’re a woman they’ll try to kind of put you in like those — big shoulder pads (laughter) and, you know, make you a little more masculine. And it’s like, you don’t have to compensate for who you are. You can just, if anything, you should lead-in more. And, I think, these opportunities, whether they’re intentional or not, once you become a part (like) IN the public eye, it’s an opportunity to kind of lead-in and embrace and grow into more of who you are than trying to apologize or shrink-down or moderate who you are. […] And, that’s what they have done, and said, “Oh, we are morally superior. We are the party of “Family Values”. So, we’re so going to separate children from their parents at the border.”

Aizzah Fatima: “All because they’re brown children. If they were white children they would never do that.” (more chatter – unclear – about brown people)

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez : “Yeah, and so, I think that, um, they have gone so obviously off-track … like … I struggle to think, at this point, of a thing that they are doing right, to be honest (um) that, I think, it’s easier if we can just claim it. But I just think that (um) and I also, I just rejected left/right frame-work cause I just don’t think that’s how people really operate (um) And we just quash things down into this left/right lens cause it’s easier for us. But that’s not how people really work. But, anyway, like, I would say that, on the “left”, there’s been this reluctance to say, “Oh, don’t moralize the issues.” And I push-back on that because, like, we are in a time of right and wrong. We are making, you know, in the ’90’s when we were…. people were talking about tax-breaks and trade-deals where, I would still argue still have some moral basis. But when they try to, kind of (um), actually make it a little bit more abstract, (unclear) you can’t moralize these issues. But the issues today are moral. I think, I think every single (gasp), you know, my right to health care is a moral issue. The idea that we have the largest population of homeless people since the great depression in New York City is, is a moral issue. The fact that there are three empty luxury apartments for every one person experiencing homelessness is a moral issue. The fact that kids are going into (uh) trailers in the back of their schools to get an education because we won’t build schools, is a moral issue. All these things are moral. And (um) I’m not, you know – And that’s the frame by which I access my politics, you know. I don’t, I don’t look at politics as (unclear). My tax cut is going to get me more. I will get, my politics, I look at politics as what is the right thing to do. And how do we get closer to that. So, I think it’s okay to, to embrace  — how you access your politics. And you should embrace (unclear) … And for me, I ask,”Is there a moral framework.” (applause)

Part 2 video. Panelist, progressive Ruth Messinger, chimed in on the issue of MORALITY as she gave support to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,

Transcribed excerpts video 2 begins with Ruth Messinger responding to Ocasio-Cortez, “Equity and inequity are fierce moral issues. (um) And we have (unclear) generalization that has ceded this language to people who claim themselves, proudly, to be “pure of faith”, “people of morality”,  and to connect their faith with their morality. But they are, and I think this is important for the fight we have in front of us, they are actually, in significant numbers (unclear), they are uncomfortable. They’ve been talking about morality for a long time and now they’re supporting a person and a party and candidates in elections who are saying some of the most unbelievably immoral, inequitable and unjust things about brown children; about segregated school systems; about failures of health care. And so this is actually the moment for progressives to reclaim the language and say, “It doesn’t matter, ” as Alexandra just said, “if your morals come from a faith-base or not.” Frankly, if you want to share that faith-base, or not, there are moral issues (um) that, in fact, influence how every single one of us was raised, and taught, whatever language our families use (um). And those moral issues about how we treat people, and how we treat the least well-off people, are the critical issues for this society and this world today; that to be able to claim that you’re speaking the, the language of moral morality with moral authority, with moral courage, is exactly what we need today in our political and our faith-based leaders.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:Yeah. And I do, I do feel it’s really important to under-score that, that we need to take this moment, and we have to, we really do need to claim the moral high-ground, because we have it. And if we don’t claim it, then we’re going to be a part of this lie. If we don’t reclaim this moment right now, in particular, in a moral frame, then our moral — then no one’s claiming the moral frame. Then no one is advocating for what is right in this country. And that is how we engage in a collective slide and, honestly, don’t let them forget it. Don’t let these people forget what they stood by and supported in this moment. They can never claim this moral frame-work ever again; EVER again. Because they stood by as children were ripped from their parents. They stood by as the richest in this country began to enrich themselves at the cost of children’s healthcare and education and housing. They stood by as the childrens’ health insurance program was (claimed) hostage. They stood by. Though all these things. And we cannot …we have to claim it. We have to tell them that this is what they are doing right now so that they know that they can’t forget it. So no one can say that no one told me. We have to be the ones that have that, that have that voice of moral clarity. Because, if we let it slide, (unclear) this country slides.” (applause)

Marxists demand: “We Won’t Be Complicit, No TECH FOR ICE ” NYC

 The Marxist Battle Cry: We Won’t be COMPLICIT!”


On July 31, 2018, from 4:30 to 7:30 pm, “Science for the People”, “Movimiento Cosecha”,”Rise & Resist”, “Desis Rising Up & Moving” and “ISO-NYC” targeted Microsoft’s NYC offices, the Salesforce tower and the Amazon Book Store on 34th Street with pickets and a march. Their complaint: “All of these companies have substantial contracts with ICE and the Border Patrol that enables these agencies to tear migrant families apart.

“Dysfunction is part of the plan”

“Liberals don’t care about kids. They want to wreck our country. More than 700,000 illegals who were caught sneaking into our country — not the 40 million we didn’t catch — are now living here free. Really free: free health care, free housing, free food. Last year, with a force less than half the size of the New York City Police Department, ICE removed more than 100,000 illegal aliens with criminal convictions.” [Ann Coulter]

Video Part 1

Join Patriots and say LOUD and clear, “Support ICE! USA all the way! Build the wall nice and tall! We will shadow the anti-American traitors.

“Time to get off the keyboards and take out your American or Blue Lives  Matter flags. No flags?  Get poster-board and construct a sign supporting ICE, the US, law enforcement, etc.Anti American traitors will take to the streets again to call for the di smantling of ICE. They will be spreading anti American rhetoric that children who came to the US illegally are being housed in cages and tortured. They will promote open borders.The dismantling of ICE and open borders would be the begining of the end of the United States.We know better. We support law enforcement…our Constitution … our law.” [NY American Defenders]

The Marxisst demand :  ABOLISH ICE 

“… most Americans believe that a fair and even generous immigration policy can only work if it is implemented under the rule of law with safeguards to protect the personal and economic security of Americans citizens and others residing legally in this country. Illegal immigration advocates … believe that immigration is an inherent universal human right rather than a privilege […] These Leftists […] want to open our borders to all who wish to reside here. If these fanatics ever get their way, the sovereign constitutional republic of the United States of America […] will come to an end. [(Joseph Klein)

Socialists, Demo-Socialists, Marxists and Liberal Progs marching against the American Constitution, demanding “No Borders. No Nations”, comically INSANE. #WeWontBeComplicit

To understand these protestors, I found reporter Caleb Maupin’s recent video on Socialism and how ignorant Americans are of Socialism’s success. Caleb […] is an”outspoken advocate of international friendship and cooperation, as well as 21st Century Socialism”

Caleb Maupin, journalist and political analyst, appears frequently on RT and PressTV. He was a member of Workers World Party and Fight Imperialism – Stand Together (FIST) (WWP’s youth wing) though he has recently distanced himself from that organization. He worked as a youth organizer for the International Action Center and was involved in the Occupy Wall Street movement from its planning stages.

A flash back on “Caleb 2012”:  a long-haired, NoKo sycophant ranting on the streets of NY, defending North Korea from defamation.


They were protesting the remake of “Red Dawn”and the replacing of the Soviet troops  of 1984, first with the Chinese … who quickly morphed in to Communist North Korea: the new enemy.

“The studio needed new villains, since the U.S.S.R. had collapsed in 1991. The producers substituted Chinese aggressors for the Soviets and filmed the movie in Michigan in 2009,” …  Immediately after, every distributor….  with any business sense got cold feet. … the filmmakers … digitally erased Chinese flags and military symbols from ‘Red Dawn,’ substituting dialogue and altering the film.” Bye-bye Chinese, hello Photoshop, North Koreans.” [Forbes]

Caleb 2012 – defending North Korea ‘s Communism/Socialism to the Times Square passersby (and riffing on this reporter at the top) is a far cry ( hair-wise) from Caleb Maupin 2018. Moving UP in the world, from street agitator to suited reporter at Press (Iran ) TV and now RT- Russian TV, but the message remains the same. (his the frothing indictment of anything non-Communist begins at the top to 00:47)

After the Marxists marched to Amazon Book Store, Gizmodo reported on the arrests.

“…around 7pm, six protesters held a small sit-in, blocking the entrance to Amazon Books. Ten minutes later officers blocked foot traffic around the store, and one approached the group with a backpack containing a speaker which played a prerecorded message warning them to disperse or be arrested for disorderly conduct. One by one they were zip-tied and led into a Strategic Response van.”

“We will target companies that do business with ICE,” said Maria Fernanda Cabello, an undocumented organizer with Cosecha […. ] If Amazon continues doing business with ICE then we won’t let them do business at all.” [Gizmodo]
