STOP Muslim Activist Linda Sarsour Keynote Speaker at CUNY Graduation

April 27, 2017. 4:30 pm. We gathered outside CUNY’s midtown Manhattan offices because Linda Sarsour, anti-Zionist, pro-Sharia Muslim, has been announced as their Keynote speaker for the June 1, 2017 graduation of CUNY’s Graduate School of Public Health & Health Policy. THIS is an OUTRAGE.


The JDL was there as the protests begin.


The JDL demanded that anti-Zionist, Linda Sarsour, be dropped as  a CUNY Commencement speaker. NO to Sarsour!


“Governor Cuomo, NOT with Public Funds!” and CUNY – “Drop Linda Sarsour as  Keynote speaker.


Coming NEXT- on JUNE 1 –  Pamela Geller and AFDI will be protesting outside the Commencement.

“We will be there. We will protest — this will not stand. Be there June 1st at Harlem’s Apollo Theater at 253 West 125th Street, from 5 – 7:30pm

CUNY has invited a pro-terror, pro-sharia, anti-semite to give the keynote commencement address. And they will not reconsider.”

“Universities have dis-invited Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Nonie Darwish, Ann Coulter, Milos; legions of conservative thinkers and voices in defense of freedom. But, a vicious, pro-sharia, Jew-hater they will defend to the death and that is it right there. They fear jihad. They fear Islamic supremacists.

They know no harm will come to them if they smear, defame, libel or cancel us. They know we don’t destroy, maim, behead like Sarsour supporters and their violent running dogs on the left.”

“CUNY is defending its decision to honor pro-terror Jew hater Linda Sarsour with the Commencement keynote address.

The norming of evil. Such sanction is so malignant and so evil, it cannot be ignored.There is a responsibility for the time we are living in.  That is why AFDI has organized a protest of CUNY’s Keynote Speaker, pro-terror, anti-Semite Linda Sarsour on June 1.”

         Please RSVP at https://www.facebook.com/events/1766093383704173/

JOIN the No to Sarsour protest outside the Apollo Theater at 253 West 125th Street.  June 1st, from 5 – 7:30pm. Be There!

++  For more info on Sarsour see these links below that reported on CUNY’s obscene decision++

From CBS  Local:

… state Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) said Sarsour’s activisim – and her support of Sharia Law – makes her unfit to by the speaker at the June commencement.

“She is someone who associates with radical Islamists; supports them; shows support for them. She is someone who has said, clearly, she thinks throwing rocks at cars in Israel is a good thing,” Hikind said.

Hikind was referring to a tweet Sarsour put out on Oct. 11, 2015, showing a young boy apparently throwing rocks at Israelis with the caption saying, “the definition of courage.”

From Breitbart:

Anti-Israel, pro-Sharia Law leftist activist Linda Sarsour will deliver the commencement speech at the City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate School of Public Health on June 1.

CUNY is a public university that is paid for by taxpayer funds.

“I am delighted to confirm that Linda Sarsour will indeed speak at our June 1 commencement at the Apollo Theater,” Barbara Aaron, chief of staff to CUNY Graduate School of Public Health dean Ayman El-Mohandes, told The Daily Caller.

From Fox News:

A Muslim woman (LINDA SARSOUR) who has referred to “Zionist trolls” and lauded the “courage” of of rock-throwing Palestinians will deliver this year’s keynote address at the commencement ceremony of a New York City university.

Linda Sarsour is listed as a featured speaker for the June 1, 2017, graduation at CUNY’s Graduate School of Public Health & Health Policy, according to the school’s website.

We are excited to announce that our inaugural commencement ceremony will feature three powerful public health and social justice leaders:

Honorary Doctor of Science
Chirlane McCray, First Lady of New York City, will receive an honorary Doctor of Science in Public Health degree in recognition of her leadership of ThriveNYC, the most comprehensive mental health plan of any city or state in the nation.

Champion of Public Health Award
Mary Bassett, Commissioner of the New York Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, will receive the Champion of Public Health award for her transformational work addressing population health in New York City.

Keynote Address
Linda Sarsour, co-organizer of the National Women’s March and former executive director of the Arab American Association of New York, will deliver the keynote address.

Assemblyman Dov Hikind, D-Brooklyn, says it is “nuts” that a taxpayer-funded institution like CUNY would invite a supporter of Shariah law to speak, CBS New York reported.

“She is someone who associates with radical Islamists; supports them; shows support for them. She is someone who has said, clearly, she thinks throwing rocks at cars in Israel is a good thing,” Hikind told the station. “I mean, it’s just nuts. It makes no sense. It’s crazy to have this woman be the person who’s going to speak to the students.”

Linda Sarsour … daughter of “Palestinian” immigrants  and DARLING of the LEFT

… has said in her Tweets, referring to “Zionist trolls” and states (that ) “Nothing is creepier than Zionism.”  She SUPPORTS Violence!

Sarsour’s anti-Israel tweets include a photo of a young Palestinian boy with a rock in each hand. It is captioned: “The definition of courage. #Palestine”

CUNY. Stop this Madness. Say NO to Sarsour!

Marxists Host April 15 Tax Day March – NYC

UPDATE – VIDEOS ADDED (Please scroll to bottom of Post)

Saturday. April 15, 2017. 1 pm. NYC Bryant Park.

Familiar Marxist/Soc/Prog/Lefties. You name it. They were there.

Workers Party. Refuse Fascism. Revolution, etc, etc

The revolution leads another Dump Trump protest.

So many STOOPID people crowded into a few blocks – 41st St to 36th st at Sixth Ave.

Feeling Large. Smug. Annoying … Disgusting.

If this is the future, if THIS is America, we are in A LOT of trouble.

Arrived at 12: 45. Start time was 1 pm. Already too late to get any pictures at the staging area. It was jammed.

So, after a zillion pictures of the signs in the pen, signs of arriving hoards, signs as I walked thru Bryant Park ….

Tried to cross Sixth Ave. Nope. Had to use subway crossover for a longer view of the eager revolution.

Part 1 Flickr slideshow … “enjoy” their many signs:

DSC_0461

Silly me … did not expect this “yuge’ crowd. Blocks. [41st to 36th St]

If you build it THEY will come (apparently).

Eager. Giddy. Intense. Smug. They came to bury COMRADE Trump not to praise him. Game on.

Someone from Jon Stewart’s show, a female, lamely attempted a “humorous’ monologue on HITLER. Seems Hitler didn’t like doing his taxes. Putin DID.

Whatever, her spiel didn’t seem to gather much momentum, even from her comrades in the audience. No matter. TAXES. That’s why we are here.

Trump’s Taxes remain the cause célèbre (Reuters)

The Working Families Party, one of the groups organizing the marches, said ongoing investigations into the Trump campaign’s connections with Russia underscore the need to disclose his returns.

“Without seeing his taxes, we’ll never really know who he’s working for,” said Dinkin, who expects the marches to draw at least 100,000 protesters.

Part 2 Flickr slide show: a few more signs, but also of the crowd-of-fools surrounded – guided – by their handlers.

DSC_0629-1

Waiting. PATIENTLY to EXPOSE Trump. To bring him down.

2:30 arrived. Start-time for their VERY slow walk-march to Central Park and then … THE END (for now). The view below is from 46th st and Sixth Ave looking south.

These tools (thousands?) turned out for the ultimate raison d’être – a march through midtown Manhattan, demanding President Trump release his tax returns and CONFIDENTLY disputing Trump’s claim that “the public does not care about his taxes.”

The Talking points focus on Trump’s refusal to disclose his tax history, insisting his White House predecessors have been forthcoming for more than 40 years. Hey!  Man Up, Trump. Don’t be a CHICKEN. (an ORANGE chicken)

Of course there is more. His illegitimate presidency. Climate Change. Health Care. Open Borders. Islamophobia. Gun rights. Name it. It’ll be on a poster.

Anything that Trump and the Repubs claim represents America –  that opposes a Soc/Commie/Prog/Leftie Utopia – will be ON. A. POSTER.

When it comes to putting-on-a-show, drawing a crowd, the Left always has a plan: unfettered motivation (inspiration). It’s a religious experience.

Common Cause: They FEAR Trump. Keep the “workers” agitated AND (like little children) entertained.

The crowd. was. white. UWS white. Soc/Commie/Leftist/Prog white. Joined at-the-hip by hatred for Trump.

There is NOTHING to support the Presidency of Trump and Company. Resist. IMPEACH! …. dump trump.

Why? BECAUSE THEY CARE. They really care. Culminating in Not My President. Impeach him. DUMP TRUMP

Even fools have a role to play in the revolution: to educate, regurgitate the soc/commie/marxist palaver to their students. their congregants. their social networks … always reaching for their higher selves.

Part 3 Flickr slide show of the march and… more … signs

DSC_0861

In their social justice world, the wilful ignorati, share common cause: They did NOT vote for Trump. (We got it. Understood.) From protest to protest, same ol’ same ol’ [wash. rinse. repeat] WE HATE Trump.


Pity the little children …

There really is a revolution, an up-rising “goin’on” that these tools can’t see for the sparkle-of-hate in their eyes.

AMERICA, across party lines, FINALLY has a plan: to slow, impede, to END this March of the Left SO… party-on … FOOLS.

See you at the ballot box. Where ever they are WE should be also. They will not stop till they have another “Obama” in the White House.

How the Left destroyed America. Socialism or die. Resistance 101. THEY. NEVER. REST.

Linda Sarsour, #Women For Syria NYC Union Sq

NYC – 6 pm – Union Square. April 13, 2017.  Linda Sarsour, darling of the Left; adored, respected, was host of the  #Women For Syria Vigil

In New York this Saturday, Women’s March organizers are planning vigils in 34 cities in the U.S. and abroad to call attention to the plight of the Syrian people and to demand a humanitarian response to the situation. Hundreds will call for the United States to take in Syrian refugees.


We will stand with them to push that rhetoric even further:

– Solidarity with all those displaced by bombs, markets, or discrimination

Abolish borders, and the nationalism and racism that depend on them

Free entry for Syrian refugees, and everyone else!”

 “NYC’s Women For Syria vigil is to be led by Muslim activist, Linda Sarsour, National co-chair of the Women’s March.

Sarsour is the Exec Director of the Arab-American Association of New York.  She is a “proud Muslim woman” who finds no fault with CAIR, the Muslim Brotherhood and supports Sharia LAW who became one of the main organizers of the recent Women’s March on Washington and now, was a leader for their next project, #WomenForSyria 

The crowd was comprised of the usual Leftists, anti-Israel protesters and ‘social justice” warriors, like “NO! REFUSE Fascism“.

#WomenForSyria makes the claim that Americans are waking up:

[…] sections of the United States have begun to wake up and take to the streets, confronting the bourgeois state and the murdering racist police that protect it.”

As Linda took the ‘stage’, speaking with her usual THICK Brooklyn accent, she reminded this small but very supportive crowd that she’s just a GIRL from Brooklyn. Deftly adding a convenient photo-op by holding a friend’s toddler.

Video of Sarsour’s opening speech was engaging, but scattered. Predictably, she managed to include mention of “Palestinian” solidarity and Islamophobia.

The United States must take-in MORE Syrian refugees. A plea I’ve heard often over the past 5 years, during Obama’s presidency and now Trump’s. SYRIAN REFUGEES must be given sanctuary.

++ A brief look back at previous mostly anti-Assad, Sanctuary for Syrian Refugees signs and flyers; the anti-Bush, anti-Obama screeds etc, in posts from Sept 2012, Aug 2013, Sept 2013Aug 2014, Sept 2015, Dec 2015 ++

In 2013, from a World Can’t Wait protest. A familiar message while holding Assad’s two-star flag. [Not the revolution three-star flag.]

 In 2013, World Can’t Wait, DEFENDING Assad?

https://thesilentmajority.files.wordpress.com/2013/09/flyer-copy1.jpg?w=345&h=486

A 2013 Face book complaint felt misled by the “World Can’t Wait” action:

facebook copy


By 2014, the message was clearly against Assad and gassing Syrians.

Back to 2107. A man from Refuse Fascism ranted that Trump does NOT care about the Beautiful Children. Saving the Children is just a U.S. war machine ploy. The Commie contingent fomenting turmoil. confusion. conflicting messages.

But, saving the refugees. the women. the babies. the families from the terrors of gassing has complications; caveats that preclude thanks.

From their press release: 

“We are outraged that the President and his cabinet are banning the very refugees that are escaping the same terrorism we are claiming to fight. The United States has taken in a very small number of Syrian refugees. We demand that we be a sanctuary and safe haven for Syrian refugees. We call on the administration to let in at least 75,000 refugees. This will help alleviate some of the suffering of the children and their families. There is no easy solution — but providing Syrians with a life of safety and security is the least we can do.”

Amongst the few speakers I heard was a Muslim man, a social justice leader and best friend of Linda’s; a male ally.

Followed by a Christian Syrian woman.

The Christian speaker mentioned that there are NO opposing factions in Syria. Then WHY are there TWO flags?

From Wiki: there are currently two governments claiming to be the de jure government of Syria, using different flags to represent the state. The incumbent government, led by Bashar al-Assad and the Ba’ath Party, is using the red-white-black United Arab Republic flag in use since 1980; while the Syrian Interim Government, led by the Syrian National Coalition – seeking to overthrow the Assad government – readopted the green-white-black Independence flag in 2012.

AND this clarification:  “The Assad regime is backed by Iran and other Shias.

2012–present, Flag used by the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces
2012–present, Flag used by the National Coalition for Syrian Revolutionary and Opposition Forces
1980–present, Syrian Arab Republic
1980–present, Syrian Arab Republic

Sounds like factions, to me. But, in Union Square, we saw only the flag of the revolution opposing Assad.

Peace and Love. Love not War.

>A young woman, Hibah Javed, stands with friends at #WomenforSyria

Apparently these Social Justice warriors are THE BEST arbiters of Peace. Linda said we must LISTEN to the SYRIANS, they are the only ones qualified on how to deal with Assad etc. All decisions should come from SYRIANS.

[From 2013 – Times Sq]

So, if Syrians are the only ones qualified to fix the Syrian problems. WHY aren’t they fixing them? IN Syria? And , why is the U.S. being pressured so take in Syrian refugees? More and more.

Sarsour has the answer (in Salon):

“We absolutely have to take responsibility for the refugee crisis. Our flawed foreign policy in the Middle East has created the fertile ground for groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda. We can’t act like we have nothing to do with that.”

         Sarsour continued

“Hate is not going to divide us. People need to be held accountable for hate speech … words that are inspiring actual violence against innocent people who have nothing to do with these terrorist attacks happening.”

Who is doing the HATING? From today’s gathering, one would surmise it’s America. America is characterized as a racist, hate-filled State. America, she is BAD.

“Stop the War. Stop the Hate.” Refers only to the U.S. imperial war machine. No one else seems to be responsible.

Sept 2015 – The Nation explains why:

“The Syrian civil war has displaced more than 4 million people, most of them to other countries in the region—though conspicuously not to the Persian Gulf states or Saudi Arabia, friend to the West and armorer of Islamist fighters in Syria. The rise of the Islamic State, or ISIS—now terrorizing Syria and Iraq and threatening neighboring countries—was sparked by the aftermath of the Iraq invasion and further fueled by the misguided tactics of the United States and Britain in Syria. Yet the United States has accepted just 1,500 Syrian refugees since the civil war began.”

Listen UP President Trump, the #Women For Syria are calling you to task:

“If you stop bombing and OCCUPYING their countries, there won’t be MILLIONS of refugees trying to flee…”

 AMERICA, YOU MADE THEM. LET THEM IN.

ACA,TRUMP, BLM Protests – April Fools Day NYC

April 1, 2017. A Three Event Day, it could have been a four, but that would be way too much ‘fun’. After the Health March, the April Fools Parade and my afternoon jaunt with the BLM Commies, I had no regrets for having skipped the “Peoples Filibuster”.  Moving on.

FIRST up (for me) was the Noon-ish March For Health-NYC.

However, it was not at Trump Tower as expected.


Nope. I found them at Fifth Avenue and 58th, in front of the Apple Store. (A location the NYPD is using more and more) just as they were leaving their pen.


They were marching  across Central Park South to Central Park West (and 61st). [Another location now preferred by the NYPD]

Had to run to catch them since this was no slow procession.


Nope. This was a FAST march past Central Park.

Once I caught up, found a few pithy signs, but you had to be QUICK to read or take a picture. Geez this was one serious speed-walk march-for-your-health.

[see a few more signs in slide show]

DSC_9890

Once at 61st, the March For Health had arranged speakers. But, these speeches would surely hold no surprises.

Same ol’ Same ol’.


SO …. I headed back for the SECOND protest- aka -“Parade”. Billed as “The 32nd Annual April Fools Parade: “Make Russia Great Again“.


Claiming to be the largest gathering of Trump Look-a-likes. Not by a LONG shot. This was the parade … with just a smattering of Trump masks.

It was pretty lame and tame, this FOOLS Day Parade.

Except for the TRUMP OUT HOUSE. That was a winner. Potty humor and the cameras went wild.

[See Slide show for a few more pictures]

DSC_9940

Oh, yes, an there was an unexpected guest …. a familiar Trump supporter. With his Trump in 2020 flag held high, he greeted the “parade” as they arrived at Trump Tower.

Took a few more pictures, listened to the 2020 Trump-guy respond as the April Fools challenged his veracity and intelligence. (see excerpts in video)

Finally the APRIL FOOLS “Parade” marched slowly down Fifth Ave to Washington square; SLOWLY thanks to the awkwardly mobile outhouse.


Not expecting Washington Sq to be much more exciting , I went inside Trump Tower, scanned and approved, for a brief respite in our NYC “White House”


THEN – Next Stop – 2 pm as the Black Lives Matter and their Comrades-in-Red gathered in Herald Square. Today, they demanded an END to Trump and de Blasio’s War on Black People. (like this was a new topic of protest)

Found the ubiquitous NYC Soc/Commie/Leftists approaching from 32nd St.

Signs held high. Purveyors of Anarchy. Promoters of Racism.

FULL of unmasked hatred for our police and ICE

(Immigration Law is BAD)

And, of course, white people. If you are Black or Brown: Resist. Insurrection.

[VIDEO has a few of their racist chants and one brave American who tried to talk LOGIC]

They sure do hate Red Bill de Blasio. (More than Trump, perhaps?)

Like many Marxist-led protests this crowd was comprised of many 20-somethings. Reseeding their stock. (The guy in brown sweat-shirt TRIED to talk sense to them.)

Smugly snookered into shilling for violence in our streets. DEAF and BLIND to all logic. ABOLISH the NYPD! Yeah. That’s the ticket.

City of Refuge : Stop the Refugee BAN action for Refugees NYC

The original “City of Refuge : Stop the Refugee BAN 24 hour Action” planned  for March 14 had been postponed because of SNOW: the blizzard that didn’t.


Still it was a lot of snow, so they rescheduled to March 28 and NOW… we had RAIN.

Cameras and Rain, an even less friendly combination, but curiosity took me down town anyway to 40 Wall St.

Day 1, March 28, 2017 (Noon-1pm) began outside a TRUMP Building at 40 Wall Street, followed by a night sleeping in a temporary “Tent City” outside historic Trinity Church.

[Trinity Church was a partner in this action]

“To bring attention to the need for more humanitarian refugee policies, Trinity is partnering with a coalition of organizations, including African Communities Together and the Interfaith Center of New York, to host a refugee action, including two marches, teach-ins, interfaith services, and an overnight “refugee tent city.” 

From Protest Press Release:

We are calling for an end to the refugee ban, the preservation of asylum and TPS (temporary protected status), and truly humanitarian immigration policy. We will organize 24 hours of powerful actions in solidarity with refugees. We are invoking the spirit of the Statue of Liberty and the history of New York as a City of Refuge for immigrants and refugees from around the world.”

On Day 2, March 29, 2017,  the protestors would march to Federal Plaza, past the African Burial Ground, ending at Foley Square. But, first, March 28. Noon. I arrived outside the 40 Wall st Trump Building as the protestors were stacking their rafts. Inflatable dinghies. Very Orange.

Typically the Left knows street theatre photo-ops, making the trip worth the inclement weather. Lots of cameras were on-hand waiting. Ready.

As the small crowd grew, there were now a few signs carried by Koreans of MinKwon amongst the umbrellas.

Rafts laid out. Photos in rafts. A banner from African Communities Together. And a steady rain that was not abating. Still no one was leaving. Waiting patiently


The sound system spazzing in the rain caused a brief delay and then the speakers began. [VIDEOS next ]

The speakers included, Cesar Vargas , New York’s First Undocumented Lawyer

After a nearly three-year wait, a five-judge panel in New York ruled this week that César Vargas — a native of Mexico and longtime New Yorker — can be admitted to practice law in the state he’s called home since he was 5, even though he remains an undocumented immigrant.

Rabbi Rachel Grant Meyer,  a refugee advocate

 Nisha Agarwal, Mayor’s Immigrant Affairs Commissioner

 Amaha Kassa, African Communities Together

Elizabeth Arjok, Sudanese model and actor.

Elizabeth fled South Sudan at seven years old and waited five years to be resettled in the U.S.

Their messages were clear: “Stop the attacks on illegal immigrants, Mr President. Stop ICE. Open Borders, Si. No to immigration laws. YES to Sanctuary Cities.” Nothing new here but, still, they managed to hold a decent rally in the rain.

[Slide show of pictures]

DSC_9620

After the speakers, I headed back up town so I didn’t walk the brief jaunt to Trinity Church – a short hop away (see picture below) – as they carried their VERY orange rafts to the temporary Tent City they set up outside the church.

At Trinity Church the schedule would include:

1:30pm: Opening at Trinity Church (including interfaith prayer service)

2:30-3:15pm: Teach-In: Immigration Law & Know Your Rights
3:30-4:15pm: Teach-In: Sanctuary in the Workplace
4:30-5:15pm: Teach-In: Criminalization
5:30-6:15pm: Teach-In: Foreign Policy & Migration

6:30-7:30pm: Dinner /Break
7:30-9pm: Cultural Jam
9-10pm: Torchlight Vigil
10pm: Doors of Trinity Church are closed. Camp out will begin.

Preferring rain to a ‘blizzard”, the protestors spent the night in a Tent City at Trinity Church as they protested the REFUGEE BAN. (Picture from Trinity Church’s Twitter feed)

DAY 2 – March 29 – Foley Square.

The Sun was out. Temperature pleasant, even though the wind was a bit brisk. The protesters spent the night at Trinity Church and were now, after passing the African Burial Ground, ended their Action in Foley Square (across from Federal Plaza) and STILL with those orange dinghies and drums (lots of African Drums).

Wednesday’s schedule – Day 2- included:

8:30-9:30am: Morning activity (leafleting, story sharing, “Call your Congressman/Congresswoman”)
9:30-10am: Closing at Trinity Church
10am-noon: The March to African Burial Ground & Federal Plaza
Noon: Closing Rally at Foley Square

Other than laying out those bright orange dinghys, this was a decidedly low impact second day protest/rally EXCEPT for some unplanned street theatre, unplanned by the protestors, was “Chairman Mao’s”, Gary Pneuff.

 “Build The Wall” Gary was back and he was NOT going to leave

But now wears a Trump hat and holds a Build the Wall sign, portable radio in hand, pacing back and forth during the speeches; chanting and singing LOUDLY (Kumbaya was his song of the day).


Crazy Gary from Staten Island
is a “professional” heckler. May Day aka Commie Day is a favorite of Gary’s. Every year he marches through Union Square giving grief to those who support Russian/ Soviet/Lenin  style Communism. Known to hurl profanities as he aggressively promotes his love for Red Chinese Communism.

So, Gary sporting a Trump hat and carrying a Trump/Pence sign, as well as “Build the Wall“, begs the question from even the protestors on the LEFT, “WHAT is going on with Crazy Gary?”

He caused quite a bit of noise pollution for the intended speakers but the police took a tame approach to his presence. They tried to move him a few times, but he wasn’t breaking any laws, so Kumbaya droned on loudly through Foley Square. Must say, had a bit of schadenfreude, watching the Left be harassed by one of their own- Gary certainly isn’t one of ours ….

As for the Refugee Action, today was perhaps a smaller crowd. The African contingent was solid but minus the Korean faction. Rally points unchanged, focus was cstill on (illegal) Immigrants. Sanctuary. Trump and …. Killer Cops aka the NYPD.(Demoralizing the police is a huge non-stop campaign going on for DECADES.)


We heard a few speeches with GARY chanting and Kumbaya-ing in the background. Union shills. African immigrants. And Hawa Bah, the mother of a Muslim immigrant, Mohamed Bah. She claims he was murdered by the NYPD on September 26, 2012.

Not much if any media present. Not my problem. Nor probably theirs either. Act like the media is there. Recruitment rather than media impact is often the goal. One day. One protest. One new recruit at-a-time keeps the ranks-of-resistance and discontent roiling. A decades old methodology.

They. Never. Rest.

Patriots March FOR #MAGA vs “Peoples” March for Free Press

March 25, 2017 – 1 PM – Patriots marched in support of President  TRUMP and #MAGA in Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, across from the U.N.

In NYC the actual march didn’t seem to happen, though about 40 Trumpers gathered first at Trump Tower – at 11 am- and then walked to the gathering in the UN Park. So, you could say there was a mini-march.  A peaceful gathering. DIVERSE (as always).


Once at the rally, I saw a nice solid assemblage of patriots. Not huge, but not tiny either. Maybe 100 or even a bit more.


With lots of signs…


And lots of banners….

Heard a few speeches of support for Trump’s America. The main speaker was immigration enforcement expert, Michael Cutler. Cutler has 30 years of experience as an Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) agent.

He was followed briefly by Jimmy McMillan, founder of The Rent Is Too Damn High Party.

Found a few anti-Trump protestors across the street with impeachment issues.

No matter the conflicting Chinese factions…

…. the mood stayed uplifted amongst the MAGA crowd.

There was, also, a disturbing faction that attached itself to this Trump Rally: the  Larouchies.  [see Lyndon LaRouche Party – Wiki]  Way too many La Rouch signs and clip boards in-hand as they worked to recruit New Larouchies.


These weird groupies, will they become a trend at the NY Republican rallies? Hope not.

Then there was Gary Phaneuf – a ‘professional” heckler – and Chairman Mao’s faithful disciple. Gary walked through the Republican crowd with his Trump cap, Trump-Putin sign and his Communist China Daily rag. What happened? Why are the Trump rallies attracting these bizarre creatures?

Whatever, the many group of patriots were on message with the National Anthem. The Pledge-of-Allegiance as well as plenty of smiles and good-will.

… Slide show of #MAGA Rally…

DSC_9428

Two marches in one day with the Patriots vs the Socialists. On  my way to the #MAGA rally, I stopped by the “People” March for a Free Press protest/rally


It was Noon in Bryant Park (42nd and Sixth ave) just a couple of avenues from the NY Times.(another mini-march) It’s the gesture that matters, ’cause they are ‘marching”.

Their aim was to show SUPPORT for a Free Press while resisting Trump’s “Fascist” America.

Trying to LOOK Patriotic – after all,  resistance is patriotic – they spoke of the Constitution, the American Revolution and claimed their protest was a living example of what our Founding Fathers fought for. The TRUTH will keep us FREE.

So, now all those racist, dead WHITE males are okay?

Holding large and small American flags while reciting the Pledge of Allegiance the speakers’ focused on, Trump and his minions who they claim oppose a Free Press. And Fox news. Of course.

TRUMP is a threat to PATRIOTIC Americans, like themselves; a danger to the NY Slimes and … a Free Press

(People for a Free Press & Tax The Rich) Couple this display with their signs, masquerading as patriotic Americans, resulted in a confused message (for some).

Passers-by wondered, “For or against the NY Times?”

The NEW Socialist Left, inquiring minds want to know,  are they the real patriots? Exposing those fools who support President Trump and Fox News. The fight is on for WHO represents a patriotic, FREE Press America.

… Slide show of the “Peoples Protest “…

DSC_9274

Even the NY Times seemed to ignore this rally. Saw lots of photographers, but found no reports. (Too peaceful, I guess).

I did read that nationwide, things were not as peaceful in the Peoples Republic of California and Omaha, of all places. Were the aggressors plants? Were they really Trump supporters?

“Violence erupted at a “Make America Great Again” rally in California. (and) more than 1,500 miles away, counter-protesters also caused chaos at a Trump rally in Omaha. The ruckus did not disrupt the rally, but it saddened some of the Trump supporters. “Today was a perfect example of how divided we have all gotten,” said Shayla McShannon, 36.”

Still, NYC was TAME in comparison. But, whether a fight with fists or a battle for a FREE Press. A battle for the TRUTH vs propaganda is a seriously important pursuit. I left the Peoples Protest. Heading to the U.N Trump supporters with this thought,

Holding a large American flag, saying the pledge of allegiance. These are not hallmark of a hanging-on-the-Left crowd. Yet they do manage to deliver the photo-ops the media enjoys. Winning? In some circles. With the help of that Free Press, can they sucker the public in to thinking this is the NEW America?

Red Bill de Blasio’s Snowflake Town Hall vs Step Down de Blasio Commies

March 15, 2017 – 7 PM – First rule of politics (that Repubs seem to have neglected) Never attend a Town Hall meeting you can’t control. That’s what Comrade de Blasio did with great aplomb.

The NYPD, the NYC Council members, the local progs, who remain loyal to the mayor, packed the meeting with loyalists who understood they were there to  make nice with the mayor, or else.


Even the so-called “hard questions” were asked with respectful voices. No shouting. No screaming. No chanting. No signs (nothing like that was permitted). No Way. No How.


Not possible since entry to the school was security intensive. Everything was scanned, purses dumped (my wallet – DUMPED); back packs, camera gear groped, dumped and prodded. No signs would be snuck in- if they even tried- not gonna get past that security. (for s few more pictures see slide show)

Listened to the town hall meeting for about 90 minutes, of a three hour marathon, with nary a spark of discontent.  The Mayor and Councilman Johnson offered the usual FRIENDLY soc/commie/prog responses to a very receptive crowd.


Stuck-on-stupid for almost every question or complaint, the most recycled solution was, “We need MORE Progressive Democrats in Albany to get rid of Trump.”


Manhattan. NYC. A hot bed of soc/commie PROGRESSIVE politicians who stay in office til they die. New York has no brain. No heart. Just empty tills that must be refilled with higher and higher taxes. Yep. That’s the ticket to a workers party paradise. (playlist of videos has excerpts of many of the talking points and answers)

Three hours of platitudes and get rid of Trump promises. “We feel your pain. November 8th was a nightmare. We can fix it if we try. We are HERE FOR YOU!”

See two more videos of the mayor on Muslim school holidays…

And Sanctuary Cities are MORE safe.

So, where were the disenchanted heavy hitters? Those fellow-travelers who often demand that Comrade Mayor de Blasio step-down. I’ve heard them. Seen them. Guess inquiring minds were checked-at-the-door.


Next day, March 16, 2017, FOUND the DUMP Blaz Commies outside City Hall. There they were, ready to excoriate all things de Blasio.


The malcontents were baaack! And not just for Chinatown and the LES (Lower East Side).


This was a CITYWIDE Alliance to Dump de Blasio NOW!


Their press release said a people-of-color consortium lead this protest. They gathered (AGAIN) with the same complaints heard on Jan 16, followed by “Mayor de Blasio must STEP DOWN!”


Blaz, the racist, is as BAD AS TRUMP!

Mayor de Blasio, “gentrifier-in-chief,” has designated NYC a “sanctuary city” in an effort to protect immigrants from racist and xenophobic Trump Executive Orders. For many NYC immigrants, however, our communities are under siege as we live in the instability and crisis as a result of the Mayor’s own rezoning policy that is displacing us from the very places that we seek refuge.

A list of  speakers outside City Hall:

Heard three of the speakers before I had to leave:

What a difference a day makes. These soc/commie/progs are not the friendlies from the night before.

While Trump pushes people out of the country, de Blasio pushes people out of their homes and neighborhoods, all to benefit his political aspirations and ultra-rich developers. They are two sides of the same coin: both destroy immigrant families and communities of color.

We say no more to racism and displacement! Join us to demand Mayor de Blasio step down!

There was a list of demands:

1) End racism in city planning. Pass community-based “People First” plans like the Chinatown Working Group rezoning plan.

2) End public funding for luxury development, such as 421-a. Instead; use public resources to preserve and build more permanent low-income housing.

3) Stop privatization of public land and assets.

4) Mayor de Blasio and those in City Council who also collude with developers, step down.

Displacement. Selling blocks of real estate apartments – in lower economic communities – to build higher and higher 65 story replacements. They want the displacement to stop. The graft and payments to stop. (Are you listening NOW, Mr. Mayor?)


Seems ol’ Red Bill’s a bit soiled and his fellow soc/commie/progs are not happy that this “Progressive” Mayor remains in office.


Step Down de Blasio!” The real estate developers are displacing NYC residents. (With the mayor’s blessing.) Racist Rezoning is destroying immigrant families. That’s why “Bill de Blasio must go!”  Now.


They do eat their own …. Don’t they…
