Protest OUTSIDE NY Times for blatant Anti-Semitic Cartoons

April 29, 2019 . 5:30 pm OUTSIDE THE NEW YORK TIMES. A protest holding the New York Times RESPONSIBLE for publishing this offensive anti-Semitic cartoon that appeared over the weekend in the International edition of the NY Times. (The Times’s international edition often publishes political cartoons, while the domestic edition does not.)


The cartoon depicted President Trump as a blind man wearing a yarmulke and being led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu  – in the shape of a seeing eye dog wearing a collar adorned by a blue star of David. (May 1: The New York Times claims to have canceled its contract with CartoonArts International)

As for the cartoon: It was drawn by António Moreira Antunes, a Portuguese cartoonist and originally published in Expresso, a newspaper in Lisbon, before being picked up by CartoonArts International, the cartoon syndicate. (The editor from The Times’s Opinion section who decided to publish the cartoon has not been named.)

 BUT, then, on Sunday …  another anti-Semitic cartoon. This was drawn by Norwegian cartoonist, Roar Hagen. Netanyahu was dressed as Moses holding a stone tablet taking a selfie; once again raising doubts about the paper’s judgement. [link]

SHAME ON THE NY TIMES!!

The protestors expressed outrage over the newspaper’s publishing of an anti-Semitic cartoon by waving Israeli flags and holding signs saying “NY Times feeds Jew Hatred” and NY (slimes) Has Blood On Its Hands.

The protest was lead by a number of Jewish organizations [The Coalition for Jewish Concerns, Americans for a Safe Israel (AFSI), and a coalition of other organizations, such as JDL-NY]

With an impressive roster of speakers that included Assemblyman Dov Hikind, Prof. Alan Dershowitz, Rabbi Elie Abadie. They called for the firing of editors and individuals responsible for these outrageous cartoons. They also prayed for the victims of the San Diego synagogue shooting. 

Video the crowd of protestors:

Video Dov Hikind:

The NY Times has a 120 year old campaign of slander and bias against Israel and the Jews and even though the Times attempted to lay the blame for the cartoon on one careless editor, the entire newspaper and its owners are responsible.

Ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon said: “The words, the demonstrators and the cartoons turn into shootings against worshipers in synagogues.

Update on May 5, 2019, proving words and cartoons do matter: Israel has been under constant attack by Hamas terrorists since Shabbat. Over 500 missiles have launched by Hamas terrorists targeting Israeli civilians. Three Israelis have been killed. Over 100 have been injured. Silence from the United Nations. No condemnations. Nothing. 

The shameful record of the N.Y.Times giving unswerving  support to the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel Congressional trio of Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Rep. Rashida Tlaib  reinforces that silence is no longer an option. We must actively combat the rising anti-Semitism in America and world wide. It must not be ignored. SILENCE IS NOT THE ANSWER.

SHAME ON THE NY TIMES! People must be fired.

New York City Hall Presser: “Zionists do not represent NY Jews”

April 2, 2019 – 4:30 pm. NYC Hall Presser, Orthodox Jews say: “Zionists do not represent NY Jews. Anti-Zionism is NOT Anti-Semitism!

Perhaps they expected a lot of press due to the anti-Israel media ledes that dominate the headlines: Israel. Bad. Racists. However, once Councilman Yeger was removed from the Immigration Committee, the press was absent. Those present were moi, the JDL-NY and eventually two very late cameramen. Oh, wait! There was also ONE hijabbed Muslima blogger.

JDL- NY was there, too, with the message: No Such Thing as PALESTINE.

We will NOT be Silenced! Israel We Stand With You!

From JDL-NY :

“NYC Councilman Yeger responded to a tweet last week with the facts- “Palestine does not exist” & “Omar is an anti Semite”. Since that hundreds of anti Semites & anti-Israel organizations have attempted to discredit him. He was removed from the Immigration Committee yesterday.

None of the organizations or individuals condemning Councilman Yeger & demanding for his removal, have demanded any actions against Omar. A news conference is scheduled to take place today April 2nd
organized by Rabbi Hershel Klar to continue the condemnations
against NYC Councilman Yeger.

We are calling for all people of good conscious to join us to condemn the witch-hunt against a Jewish elected official. Omar remains on the Foreign Affairs Committee after numerous blatantly anti-Semitic tweets. She must be removed! Anti-Semitism is NOT okay. We can not be silent!”

Propaganda’s Use of Palestine

“During the last few centuries, the world, Christians included, has fallen into a bad habit. We have bought into some early Roman propaganda. We have used the name Palestine, which Roman Emperor Hadrian placed on the country of Israel in 135 A.D., for so long that it has become common usage. This would be as incorrect as calling the Russia of today the “Soviet Union” or referring to Berlin as “East Germany.” The thoughts below by our ministry’s senior theologian, Dr. Thomas S. McCall, completely explore the subject. If you know somebody who’s fallen into this habit, please share this article with them.”

Does Palestine Exist  – Front Page Mag

“Two weeks ago, a local New York City Councilman named Kalman Yeger noted on Twitter that “Palestine does not exist.” That statement, controversial as it is, is grounded in fact — in the sense that the United Nations Security Council, the only UN body capable of establishing international law through binding resolutions, has never conferred legal status to “Palestine,” and never accepted “Palestine” as a UN member state.”

All should be deeply offended  by these misguided flyers.

An anti-Zionist statement from the presser:

“We are against Zionism because we are Jews!” “The State of Israel is the biggest misfortune for the Jewish people” “Thousands of young Orthodox Jews are tortured in Israeli prisons because they are not willing to serve in the Israeli !” “We want to live in peace with all. We want to live in peace with our neighbors & respect EVERYONE no matter his color or creed!’ [https://twitter.com/TorahJews]

See short Flickr Slide show

twitter announcement

And  two short videos: at first, it looked as though the presser was only in Hebrew ,which certainly limited getting their message out.

Later, in a 12 minute speech (in English) references to the “teachings of  Grand Rabbi Joel Teitelbaum, Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem and  founder of the Satmar Hasidic movement in 1961 (Book  Vayoel Moshe)

“Teitelbaum argues that Zionism is incompatible with Judaism. As Teitelbaum explains in the introduction, the book’s title is taken from the biblical verse of Exodus 2:21, and hints to Teitelbaum’s first name (Yoel), and to his grandfather, Moshe Teitelbaum. The verse, which states “And Moses agreed to stay…an alien in a foreign land”, hints to Teitelbaum’s conclusion that the Jewish people should remain in exile.[1]

They claim that THEY are Torah Jews.

PALESTINE letter 1947 ( I think it actually makes OUR case that Palestine refers to the JEWS.)

In video at 6:20 : “Letter from Chief Rabbi Jerusalem re Palestine Problemand the Jewish people . The Holy land and the Gates of Palestine were to be open to all those Jews who have no home, to lead Jewish lives in accordance with the commandments. But, he was OPPOSED to a Jewish State.”

At 8:38Re inflammatory remarks from any one in public office ” (remarks) … are totally unacceptable (so) Councilman is way over due to apologize to Councilwoman Omar – to orthodox Jews . Otherwise, you should resign from your post to heal the deep wounds. We ask for peace and tranquility worldwide …  a day of global peace when there won’t be any wars. Any bloodshed. Any animosity. The entire universe, all the nations should serve one G-d in harmony and peace, omein”

“Inflammatory remarks from any one in public office” … and yet the ONLY person he mentions is Councilman Yeger.

See quotes from Congresswoman Omar that are INFLAMMATORY as she addressed CAIR: “Someone did something on 911.”

In conclusion, Rabbi Shulem Lefkowitz speaking in a post presser release:

“The Rabbinical Alliance of the USA, a group representing Orthodox Jews from Brooklyn neighborhoods, held a press conference on Tuesday, April 2, 2019, on the steps of City Hall in Manhattan, regarding recent statements by Brooklyn councilman Kalman Yeger, who recently ignited a conflict with his comment that “Palestine does not exist”, thereby making an impression that Jews have Zionist interests.

“Over the decades, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been a long chain of both, a violent one and a war of words,” said Rabbi Hershel Klar, an organizer of the event. “Now Councilman Yeger has unfortunately brought this war of words to our own Brooklyn neighborhood of Borough Park, giving the impression that religious Jews, his constituents, are interested in adopting the Zionist narrative and creating friction with our neighbors.

Jews and Zionists could not be more different. 
Jews are commanded to live peacefully in their countries during  exile, while Zionists wish to conquer land and oppress other people.
The Zionists, both leaders in the State of Israel and their supporters here in America, do not represent the Jewish people.

“Yeger deepened his offensive comments by leveling the accusation of anti-Semitism against a member of Congress, Ilhan Omer, who has been critical of the State of Israel and its supporters.

The Zionist approach of accusing their critics of being anti-Semitic is wrong.
Anti-Zionism is not anti-Semitism.
Judaism and Zionism are diametrically opposed.
Judaism is a religion to be subservient to the Almighty, while Zionism is a transformation into a political nationalist movement.

In fact, Judaism forbids a sovereign Jewish State since the destruction of the Jewish temple.Likewise, Judaism forbids Jews to wage wars, provoke conflict, or oppress any nation or peoples.

We Jews have always lived in the utmost peace and regard alongside our neighbors in all countries of our exile. We respect our government leaders and fulfill the commandment of Jeremiah 29:7, ‘Seek the welfare of the city to which I have exiled you and pray for it to G-d.’

The Zionist protagonists do not speak in our name.
It’s against Jewish law and tradition.

Kalman Yeger’s comments don’t represent the Brooklyn Jewish community. Numerous leading Rabbis have condemned him. This is not what we elected him for.

We need our politicians to keep our streets and parks clean and safe, and to advocate for services for our neighborhoods and schools, and not to drag our communities into the Zionist agenda.

We call upon Yeger to retract his comments.”

NOT GONNA HAPPEN.

CAIR Rally Against “Islamophobia” Times Square

[face book]

After covering the poorly attended Kirsten Gillibrand’s “I’m running for President” Rally, headed to Times Square (47 th st and Bdway) and the very predictable CAIR “Rally Against ISLAMOPHOBIA”. This too was not the attendance expected, but definitely better than Gillibrand’s big fail.

The Muslim signs, and the speeches, were laden with Hate, Racism and Victim Mania. Pretending to be anything but what they actually were: racists masquerading as victims. The big lie of the day, CAIR is LOVE. White America is HATE!

The Racism and Xenophobia Rally was hosted by “Majlis Ash-Shura, Islamic Leadership Council of New York, Muslim American Society – New York (MAS-NY), Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), Muslim Ummah of North America (MUNA), Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA), Turkish American National Steering Committee (TASC), Arab American Federation (AAF), and the Council on American-Islamic Relations, New York (CAIR-NY).”

They claimed that this  rally and march “showcased the solidarity of New Yorkers against the ideology of hatred” most recently manifested in the New Zealand terror attacks that left 50 fatalities. There was a recruitment call for “action and unity” to push back against growing Islamophobia, white supremacy and anti-immigrant bigotry in America …  and around the world.”

Once again they claimed that the people gathering at AIPAC (The American Israel Public Affairs Committee) represented the worst in humanity, not the best. In speech after speech, we were told that Muslims and their supporters are the BEST of humanity.

Video 1:AIPAC, Zionism Times Sq CAIR sponsored “Islamophobia” Protest”- 2 male speakers this video – excerpted. (They think the MEDIA is their enemy)

First male Speaker ranted on and on about victims and the so-called war on terror, Islamophobia, anti-black and brown racism and ZIONISM … massacres … Guided missiles fired by racists. the Victims in New Zealand no different than the victims of the Gaza Freedom March of Return. And before that the 10s of thousands of people of Palestine. The million plus people in Iraq. The 100s of thousands in Afghanistan. All victims of this system of oppression and injustice…we must call out those who commit the crimes AND the powers behind them. The AIPAC conference … from Palestine to Mexico all the walls have got to go.

Second male Speaker: …. 300 million dollars a year to Israel to build walls against Palestinians …. if you support this you are not in solidarity with the Muslim community. … We are not coming here as peaceful Muslims, we are coming here as Muslims who demand justice. We demand our rights. We demand our god given rights ….. the Constitution … all the oppressed people of the world. We cannot cower. we cannot hide our identity. the people who have spread this bigotry. who are complicit. From the media, CNN. NY Times. who propagate hate.

Video 2:  Muslim Prayer  Times Sq CAIR Rally against Islamophobia

We hear a Muslim prayer to allah, with a look at the crowd and signs; with lots of takbir (allah is greater) – allah akbar (allah is greater) inshallah (if allah wills to happen) and Jalla jalālahu (his glory be glorified) and WE WANT JUSTICE. WE WANT PEACE.

Video 4 – White Supremacy, Muslim censorship & David Weprin
            [50 Muslims were killed simply for being alive. It’s not okay.]

“White supremacy  and Islamophobia is an enemy we cannot see.  It is something very subtle that happens in our interactions every single day.  You have to remember the enemy is the White Man with a gun it is also the institutions that uplifted and empowered that man. It is the media. To allow him a voice. He published before hand what he was going to do, but of course censorship only happens when MUSLIMS want to raise their voices.

The 24th Assemblyman, David Weprin (looking lost in Muslim Prayers- Oct 19, 2018)  She says, “Allies (like Weprin) are important”

Weprin: ” I have the largest mosque in NYC – the Jamaica Muslim Center  in my district. I was there after the New Zealand tragedy in solidarity, identifying with my Muslim brothers and sisters. Albany declared yesterday Pakistan Day in the State of NY. He and Jon Liu have the religious garb bill they expect to get past the Senate this year; prohibits discrimination against hijabs employment, promotion, in PRIVATE. For wearing religious garbs  like HIJABS. It’s very important to our sisters in the Muslim community. Discrimination for wearing hijabs is very subtle. Employers with uniforms can discriminate against our sisters in the Muslim community. And that’s outrageous! I’m optimistic that the bill will pass for the first time …and become law.”

Video 4 – Rise and Resist Comrade, Travis Morales of Refuse Fascism (and Bob Avakian apostle) in Aug 2017 holding mic:

Morales: “They’re the sickness. They’re sick people. There’s a sickness going on. There’s a group of people that are very sick.” That is what Trump said about Muslims. He gave an O.K. to that murder. Trump said he would very closely look at the closing of mosques in this country. That was an okay to this murder in New Zealand. The Blood is on his hands. On this whole system of Capitalism and Imperialism. He has blood on his hands. …whether Democrat or Republican who supports Israel. This country was founded on slavery and genocide. They put black people in this country in chains. What kind of system does this? It’s a system that cannot be reformed. A system that must be over thrown. 

WE ARE REVOLUTION.  The Communist party. We have the strategy and the leadership for a REAL revolution.  If you’re not down for revolution, we still gotta come together. We have to unite to drive out this Trump-Pence regime.  Refusefascism.org- we have a strategy. To start with thousands of people in the major cities…growing every day … growing to hundreds of thousands and  millions til our demands are met: The Trump /Pence regime must go. In the name of humanity we refuse to accept a Fascist America. Driving out this regime as soon as possible.”

Video 5 & 6 – Speaker 1, a Jeanine Piro tirade, brotherhood demands change the Constitution .

“A salaam alaikum. We want to send a message to the powers that be …. to understand … that we are ONE Brotherhood. Whatever hurts any of us brothers anywhere on the planet hurts all of us. Want to read something that took place on Fox News, a statement by Jeanine Piro attacking Congresswoman Omar for wearing hijab. She said, “Think about it …  hijab.  Is this indicative of her adherence to the sharia law … which is unethical to the United States Constitution.”

This is pure bigotry for wearing of the hijab. It’s not a contradiction to the Constitution. It is something the women do out of purity. If purity is against the Constitution, then maybe we need to talk about changing the Constitution. (cheers/whistles)

I want to demand that this woman never be allowed to be on Fox News again. (cheers) And if the President of the United States backs what she said, then he’s a bigot too. We gotta a lot of work to do. We must stand together. We must be resolved. We must be strong in our resistance. May Allah give us the strength … inshallah …. a salaam alaikum”

Speaker 2 – CAIR NY Exe Dir, Afaf Nasher begins at 2:31

“(we see in studies) that 268 right wing extremists prosecuted in Fed Court,  not under the terrorist law that should have applied to them, but under other laws. No surprise, because 80% of narratives in the media that portray Muslims, is a negative portrayal. Do we understand …  the systemic racism that we see. (click pic to enlarge)


Malcolm X warned us. He told us to be careful. He told us the newspapers will have you hating the people that are being oppressed, and have you loving the people who are doing the oppression. These relentless messages of dehumanization and hatred that creates this animosity; that emboldens the extremists with hatred and attacks and murders and massacres. And these Islamophobes keep pedaling the idea that terrorism is by one people.
But we know… that terrorism has no religion. We understand that terrorism is antithetical to faith, antithetical to god’s mercy; antithetical to god’s love. It is antithetical to god’s peace. It is antithetical to compassion and justice.  Together, if we stand shoulder to shoulder we can defeat the racism and the hatred that is sweeping through our country and the world. (cheers)  We have the responsibility to challenge the media; to challenge racism To challenge Islamophobia, xenophobia, white supremacy. I am hopeful that we can  illuminate the very darkest corners of hate. Hopeful, that if we stand together, we can shut down those politicians who spew hate with our votes. Hopeful that we can shutdown the mega corporations who use their platforms to spew hate … Hopeful that as citizens, as friends, as neighbors we can create our own narrative,  a TRUTHFUL narrative.  One that recognizes and affirms the dignity of every single human being. We together, as New Yorkers and as family in this world of humanity, hopeful that if we have this responsibility, that we can shoulder with success and LOVE and dignity. That we can protect one another and create a legacy that is rooted in a common cause for justice, equality, compassion for all. That is you and me together. Now let me hear you. Can we do it? (cheers) Do we love one another? (yes) Will we shut down hate? (yes) Will we take our dollars else where when somebody seeks to profit through division? (yes) Will we VOTE and get those politicians OUT who want to divide us? (yes) Are we committed? (yes)  Are we dedicated? (yes) Will we show up day after day (yes) My brothers and my sisters …  I feed off your determination … we will bring it to the next generation. Inshallah.”

The JDL-NY was there. They managed (against the amplification) to speak the truth over the din.

They managed to balance the message.

Even though the police weren’t all that helpful (see video)

Video 7 –  Because JDL yelled, police claim “combative”

JDL-NY, while marching around the AMPLIFIED protest, was informed by a NYPD legal rep (it’s difficult to HEAR him because the amplified “Say it Loud, Say it Clear” was SO LOUD) that they could not yell. JDL agreed, “They stay in their area, we stay right here.” Not good enough. The NYPD legal accuses them of being combative because they were yelling [unamplified]. He said, the sidewalks would be closed, the JDL moved, if they continued to yell. And then, a very loudly amplified prayer was heard for blocks.

BTW- off camera I mentioned to the officer that the NYPD failed to follow through on these rules at our #CancelSarsour Protest/Rally on May 25, 2017. [Listen to the videos – says it all] Of course, since he claims to have not been there, he can’t address our claim. However, when you look at this picture from May 25, 2017, sure looks like the same officer. Obviously, the rules change depending on who is in charge.

crowd 1

IN CONCLUSION: The media will be praising Gillibrand and defending CAIR as victims of “Islamophobia”. Even our NYPD legal guy, put on the street to control potential confrontations, is snookered. Clearly the LEFT/Muslim factions are coddled. WE are not. EXAMPLE FOLLOWS:

Patriots marching on the sidewalks with signs with unamplified voices. It’s allowed. In NYC, these are the rules:  Keep moving. Nothing amplified (FYI- musical instruments, drums, whistles are not amplified). The Left, whenever countering patriots, knows these rules and always marches round and round,  chanting and blowing whistles (sometimes not even marching. Just standing still) .We have suffered these offensive actions by the Commies and friends when they wish to rain on our rallies. AND the police LET them. We used to accept being separated by blocks from the rallies on the Left. No more. We, too, now march around. Keep moving and using our unamplified voices to respond to what we see and hear. But, this day we were put ON NOTICE. Our voices were COMBATIVE. If we spoke up, the NYPD would close the sidewalks. If we did not march  silently, they would remove us.  BECAUSE the CAIR rally had the permit which included not just the street but BOTH public sidewalks. For comparison: see our Geller/Spencer protest against Linda Sarsour . The NYPD did NOTHING to remove the leftists from our staging area. The NYPD – whom we support- sadly, they do not support us.

“Kirsten Gillibrand in 2020” has poor turnout on home turf

Columbus Circle 11 am. March 24, 2019. NYC   Kirsten Gillibrand’s poorly attended 2020 presidential rally outside Trump Hotel. “Bravery” was the theme of her campaign that sparked low interest. Text BRAVE, maybe it’ll help….

Gillibrand vowed to stand up to President Trump (and those within the Democrat Party). She also called for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election to be made public.

She’s gonna need help getting her message to the country at large. But, since even NYC wasn’t even interested in her candidacy, she’s gonna need some help- .

BLOCKS were roped off, and all she managed was about a half a block (if that) – jammed up to the stage for the pictures.

Video 1 – JDL-NY and fellow patriots gathered in support of President Trump outside the poorly attended rally that was Kirsten Gillibrand’s 2020 media opp for her Presidential run. There were some lively exchanges with the passersby, and not ALL were against Trump.

Two DACA dreamers and immigrant activists led the roster of speakers because … they are #BRAVE.

They announced proudly, WE ARE DREAMERS (aka illegals) Lisdy Contreras-Giron (a Pace Univ. grad, who came here at 5 yrs old from Guatemala) and  Monica Sibri

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.

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!

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.”

GOP leader accuses Dems of ‘enabling anti-Semitism’ by defending Ilhan Omar” [NY Post]

“A top GOP House leader accused Democrats of trying to “protect” Rep. Ilhan Omar and “enabling anti-Semitism” by failing to single out her anti-Israel comments on the House floor.

“I think it was really clearly an effort to actually protect Ilhan Omar,” Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) told NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday. “To cover up her bigotry and anti-Semitism by refusing to name her. The Democrats have yet to take any action to remove her from her committee. And they’ve got a real problem.”  [NY Post]

[Face Book] JDL (Jewish Defense League)

Anti-Semitic attacks have dramatically increased New York City. A synagogue’s window was shattered during Shabbat in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn. Jews are being physically attacked all across Brooklyn. Swastikas defacing property have been found in Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan.

Across the the US, synagogues and Jewish community centers have seen their property defaced and/or received threats of violence.

In the Capitol of the United States of America, there are elected officials with strong ties to anti-Semitic groups. These same elected officials do not hide their support for the BDS movement.

The most horrific anti-Semitic attack to occur on United States soil was in October 2018 at The Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA. Eleven Jews were murdered and seven injured.

Across Europe Jews are being beaten and murdered; kosher stores are defaced and Jewish tombstones smashed.THIS MUST STOP!

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.

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.”

“No Art for ApARTheid’s Sake” vs the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra

No Art for ApARTheid’s Sake’. Protest Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. [Face Book]

On February 3,  2019, New York’s Carnegie Hall hosted an outrageously expensive fundraising brunch for the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (IPO), followed by an IPO concert performance. Tickets for the IPO brunch started at $1000. Protest the Israel Philharmonic was hosted by Adalah-NY

New York human rights advocates gathered in a noisy, musical protest in front of Carnegie Hall to demonstrate against an extravagant fundraising brunch and performance by the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (IPO). The IPO website proudly states that the Orchestra “represent[s] the State of Israel across the world.” [Mondo Weiss]

Adalah-NY

It’s gonna be a nice warm day in the 🌞40s!!!🌞 – perfect for protesting the Israel Philharmonic’s fundraising brunch! We’ll have our own ☕️anti-apartheid brunch☕️ with Palestinian pastries and music from the Rude Mechanical Orchestra! 🎺💓🎷So come on over to Carnegie Hall at 1 p.m. and bring your friends!

BDS is being attacked in Congress! Please support this and other such demonstrations if you can.

…. tell the IPO that music should be for liberation not whitewashing occupation!

“As the IPO’s wealthy supporters attend a lavish brunch inside to sustain its whitewashing of Israeli apartheid, we’ll be outside sustaining our love of justice with a small Palestinian brunch and music for liberation with the big freedom sounds of the Rude Mechanical Orchestra.”

“The IPO is no apolitical cultural institution.” Israel systematically deprives Palestinians of their basic rights, whether they live under Israeli military occupation, as unequal citizens in Israel, or as refugees, denied their right of return to their homeland.”

“Our protest responds to the Palestinian civil society call to boycott cultural institutions like the IPO that are complicit in sustaining Israel’s apartheid rule over the Palestinian people.” [Face Book]

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.
