NOT My President Day Leftists return to Columbus Circle NYC

Presidents’ Day. NYC.  Feb. 20, 2017. RENAMED (by the rabid Left) NOT MY PRESIDENT DAY


Location: Start at Columbus Circle. Assemble outside Trump International Hotel. 61st St & Central Park West. Time: 12pm – 4pm


This was announced as a peaceful demonstration. A rally, not a march (though plenty of Leftards marched up Broadway)

There was a congressional recess on February 20th that aligned with President’s Day. SO, “Let’s rally while our federal representatives are back in town and remind them who they represent.”


But, today was NOT just any Presidents Day.

Officially, the holiday is called Washington’s Birthday, to honor the first American president, George Washington. The date was established by Congress with the Monday Holidays Act, which went into effect in 1971.

But,  just say “President Trump” and watch the temper tantrums from the Left begin.

.
That’s all they needed to “gather like children”, screaming , “Trump is NOT my President.”  Pathetic.

                                                   (click to enlarge)
AMERICA , however, did not remain silent. There were pockets of confident patriots scattered from 60th to 65th st.


Not just ‘white’ America the Left loves to smear with cries of racism.


People of color. Diversity. THIS is what democracy looks like.

Polite (mostly). FIRM in their convictions that Donald  Trump IS our President. YOU LOST. Get over it!


Heading towards the subway, I felt weary from yet another YUGE temper tantrum. So much snarky ill-will.


Yet, the civilized street debates offered up by those brave patriotic Americans, also left me encouraged.


Kudos to the patriots who had the courage to stand amongst so many smug Fools and Tools and retained their composure. Bravo.


For the Leftards, who suck the life out of everything, while preaching hatred for all things Republican: a major Razzie award to you all.


Where is MOM when you need her.


“Time out.” “Go To your Room.” (if only that would work)

Video Playlist: 7 short vids – 4  are the patriot street debates

After the Rally, the Leftists filled their Face book and Twitter feeds with the expected self congratulation. BUT so did the Patriots!!

Thank you to EVERYONE that came out. We made a stand and it was great. The Spirit of ’76 was alive yesterday and we totally messed up the libs day. So proud of everyone!

By the way, the next event will be on March 4th – I believe at Trump Tower. It’s called “March 4 Trump” and they will be happening in several cities. Thanks again.

The LEFT says they’re winning. Yet, after reading their “mission statement”, methinks hubris may sink their ship (Hoping)

Face book statement on WHY they rallied for NOT MY PRESIDENT Day:

Donald Trump is literally our President, but figuratively, he has attacked every value New Yorkers embody and does not represent our interests. We will be staging a rally at Columbus Circle to protest the un-American policies of the current White House:

– He plans to cut federal funding to our state in an attempt to turn us against our immigrant population, funneling money away from important public institutions.

– He wants to use our tax money to build a wall that no one wants.

– He attacked our Muslim communities and instituted an Islamophobic religious ban.

– He approved a pipeline that threatens to destroy sacred lands.

– His administration opposes a woman’s right to choose and purged the White House website of information pertaining to police brutality and LGBTQ rights.

– His party doesn’t take climate change seriously and undermines our state’s efforts to combat it.

Donald Trump stands against the progress we have worked hard to enact. He does not represent our interests. He was voted in by a minority of the American public but governs as if there’s no resistance. But there is — and on February 20th, we will honor previous presidents by exercising our constitutional right to assemble and peacefully protest everything Donald Trump stands for.

Michael Moore’s “Declaration of War” Against America – NYC

January 19, 2017 “We Stand United Rally – NYC “  Columbus Circle [6-8 pm]

They gathered to “Protect Shared Values” on the Night Before Trump’s Inauguration,” to “send a message to President-elect Trump and Congress that New York City will protect the rights of residents and will continue to make real progress on important issues such as health-care, climate change, social justice and immigrant rights.”

G-d save us all from the chaos of these malcontents, insurgents and misguided ‘do-gooders’

Playlist of 4 short videos: includes Rosie Perez, Mayor de Blasio and a DeNiro (excerpt)

62nd street and Central Park West. 5:30 pm. As I entered the enclosure for the protest/rally. the Michael Moore (Soros funded) insurgency was going hot and strong.

This first block was nearly half-packed already with people pressing towards the stage making access for any press nearly impossible. (the stage was a block north of the Trump InterNational Hotel starting at 61st st)

The Upper West Side. Important not just because of Trump real estate. This is the breeding ground for brain-dead libtards. Like the Eloi, heads craned passively towards the jumbo-tron…they did not disappoint.

Coming in programmed droves to “Stand in Solidarity” with people-fighting to “advance” the causes of “racial, social, environmental and economic ‘justice’ “. (arggh)

Much more to see in the Flickr slideshow:

DSC_6088

Having found new purpose as they, the white,educated elitists,proclaimed Trump to be an illegitimate POTUS  … just because THEY said so.

Their Fascist mantra, “Not my President” pierced the night air. And the press was giddy with ‘enlightenment’.

They may not have been close to the stage, but they had plenty of soc/commie/prog/fascisti to interview. And they DID. (Note Debbie Almontaser in the gray hooded coat- She of Intifada NYC infamy)

nyc-intifada-copyright

Almontaser waiting along with her fellow “Faith Leaders” to be interviewed ….

Threatening to “Take Back THEIR Socialist America“, Moore announced there will be co-ordinated nation-wide assaults;  a hellish rage of protests, riots and see-you-in-court actions” planned by these domestic terrorists to hobble Trump’s first 100 days in office. (This is ‘love’?)

Flashback November 2008 – One of these things is NOT like the other.

obama-election-2008-copy

Obama and his 8 years of insurgency. Mass Unhappiness. It, too, was there. Not all rejoiced. A malaise ran deep. BUT, there were no riots-in-the-streets. No Republican insurgency threatening to ‘Take Down Amerikkka’. Instead – We Came Together –  peacefully- at the ballot-box.  WE TOOK BACK the real America. Legally.

AND now, as expected, the Leftards are RIOTING. In the streets. Again. Insurgents. Deconstructing America, brick by brick. Yearning for a government the Comintern might recognize …. and love …

An addendum: My friends – patriots all- some were for Trump, some merely accepted his presidency – but ALL came out to support him, to support America  that night. The patriots expressed a deep concern, having experienced first-hand a swelling of hatred most disturbing towards their quiet display of patriotism.

daily-new-columbus-circle

Predictable, since I noted the usual soc/commie/prog/facisti through out the crowd. Despite Michael Moore’s proclamation of fealty this was was a passionate gathering worthy of a Fascist Bund , NOT a pro-America assembly.

What I took away was disgust. 7pm. What more was there to see and hear.

Surrounded by hatred. Smug anger. Bizarre glassy-eyed insurgent- joy. The fools, too easily fed and lead by the media, know nothing –  pawns of the Soros puppeteers (the TOOLS) It’s going to a bumpy ride.

Netanyahu & Kissinger “WAR Criminals Protest” Plaza Hotel [ 9-22-16]

Thursday, Sept. 22, 2016 , 5:30 pm – NY’s Plaza Hotel
A protest organized by Jewish Voice For Peace, co-sponsored by Code Pinkos and Adalah NY and joined by World Can’t Wait. The protestors ranted and chanted:
netanyahu-chants
Irate that Netanyahu was receiving an award from the “right-wing” Hudson Institute, they marched in front of the hotel with their versions of Netanyahu’s awards.

The 10-year, $38 billion military aid package signed between the two countries earlier the month and opposition to efforts to boycott Israel. ”
(Facebook photo by Neha Sood)

Three short videos:

The protestors carried smarmy signs like, “Natural Born Killers”  (click on picture below to flip through slide show)

DSC_2812

And banners that declared Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, to be a WAR Criminal.

From the protest announcement:

“Come show the world that we do no see these individuals as heroes–but rather as criminals. Come show these war criminals that New Yorkers of conscience will not stand by while they prance around our city and pat each other on the back for their misdeeds. We will present “Bibi” with our OWN awards–ones that expose his crimes and vile behavior”

Join us as we raise our voices against Netanyahu’s regime of human rights abuses. Come show the world that New Yorkers of conscience do not welcome Netanyahu. We will present him with our own award, one that sheds light on the rights violations of the Israeli government.

Later, on Saturday, the anti-Bibi protest continued “on Broadway”:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was booed and met with cries of ‘Free Palestine’ after going to watch the hit Broadway musical “Hamilton”.

Melanie Colton tweeted: ‘At Hamilton… two women entered the Richard Rodgers Theater screaming, ‘Free Palestine!’ They were “escorted” out of the theatre after trying to shove their way through Netanyahu’s heavy security.

Mondoweiss eagerly posted:”Now he’s “Boo Boo!” Netanyahu!”

Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu was booed and met with cries of 'Free Palestine' after going to watch hit Broadway musical Hamilton in New York
FACT: It was NOT the whole audience –  just TWO women – most likely CODE Pinkos (picture from Mark Young twitter)

Back to the Plaza. Kissinger attended the banquet so, of course, he was the focus of a War Criminal QUIZ  (click picture to enlarge)

Found this protest plea, promoting their UN- type nonsense:

Google, Inc: GOOGLE: Put Palestine On Your Maps!   20,333 signatures are still needed! Sign this petition on Change.org.

Smug. Cocky. And SO wrong!

NY-ICE Patriots vs “Crush Trump” Anarchists – Columbus Circle (3-19-16) vids/pics

I begin the “Crush Trump” Protest, organized by the Cosmopolitan Antifascists, with a report on the NY-ICE counter protest. There will be more posts of the soc/commie/anarchists, pictures and some video.

Noon. Columbus Circle. March 19, 2016

12801456_223717434642895_7917728175019713628_n

I arrived at about 11:30. The gathering of the anti-Trump brigades was slow. This one-man flag waver for Socialism was leading the way…alone….it was so slow starting that, for quite awhile, the press outnumbered the protestors. DSC_8859 This was looking to be a slow day for a protest.DSC_8881Though things did pick up once they all crossed Central Park West to the park entrance. There was even OPEN Borders banner blocking the street.DSC_8984 More and more of the Bernie-fied anti-Fa’s finally trickled in. GREEN seemed to be the color of the day, as well as yellow arm bands for the avowed socialists.  But, green? Left over from St. Paddy’s Day?? I’m not up on what that signifies (if anything). [Update:ANTI-Fascists “GO GREEN”]DSC_8898NY-ICE – (New Yorkers for Immigration Control) “Saying NO to open Borders. Build the Wall” was also there. DSC_9091The press was interested in statements from NY-ICE and THAT made the already angry anarchists even more bilious.

From France24:

“More and more, people who show their support to Donald Trump are intimidated,” said one among them, Jim MacDonald, of NY-ICE.

“We are here to show that it is still America for the time being … we have a right to free speech,” he added.

“As frightening as this is, we are going to show that we have the right to show our support to Donald Trump whether it pleases the other side or not.”

The flickr slide show below focuses on NY-ICE and a couple of the soc/commie infiltrators who attempted to end the interviews by stepping in to the discussions (like this red-hatted, “peace-loving” woman)DSC_9217 Her ploy didn’t seem to work as well as it has in the past. [And she left quickly once she was asked to explain why she supported socialism vs free-market capitalism]

(Please place cursor on photo to access slide show)

DSC_9091

SO …. the next approach to end the press interviews was to  “scream, curse, and chant-sing” the press into a submission (of sorts) That too didn’t work. DSC_9063For once the press hung in there, as did NY-ICE (they always do)

VIDEO- NY ICE Patriots quietly countering the hatred spewing from the mouths of the vile soc/commie/anarchists.  “F#*k Trump” was the chant of the day.

This clip is longer than I usually post, she ranted for 15 minutes or more [repetition is part of the art of chaos] I edited as best I could, without losing some of the main-points of the opposition to Trump etc.

STARTING at [3:33-6:18] there was a spirited exchange regarding Zionism, Jews, Ben Carson, Israel (apartheid & Walls) and Russia (a FINE example of NO walls) and continues at [7:01-7:38] The protestor was seemingly OKAY with Russia having Borders and Border patrols (go figure)

And there was very open support for BERNIE. NOT Hillary (no surprise)

Obnoxious chants were led by the particularly obscene “Spit-Queen”- her intentional spittle flew at 2:12 – aimed at NY-ICE.  Yet she continued to preach that she was all about Love. TRUMP was Hate. They were LOVE.

Side Note: The spit-queen has a history of spitting as a tool-of-protest. And she ALWAYS screams and curses like a sailor!

VIDEO – NY ICE and some of their interaction with the press. I was able to catch brief interview quotes from the NY-ICE Patriots, particularly NY-ICE member, Jim, who was being interviewed starting at 1:57.

The Commie-handlers always walk the perimeter of the protests. I happened to spot Andy Pollack, who loves to bully and threaten the opposition. But, today, he seemed to be on quiet-patrol. DSC_9067Once Pollack had observed NY-ICE a few times is when the spit-queen took her position down-front – next to the NY-ICE press interviews- No accident. For sure.

I am guessing the police let a lot slide earlier while I was observing at the park entrance. They usually make groups like NY-ICE stand away from the protestors. DSC_9230Not sure that mixing was all that much fun, annoying, but the police (watching and waiting) were saving their energy for the MARCH. (I guess) DSC_9125 copyNEXT will be my pics etc as I look at the Wild Side. Reports came out later (after I left around 2 pm) that the March to Trump Tower, just a couple of blocks East, is when the anarchists and loons finally took to the streets.  Chaos, NOT LOVE, is their goal. (Always.) Challenging Law and Order. (I understand there were some arrests and pepper spraying)

Mission Accomplished.

Stop Deportations Now! ICE-Free NYC-The Speakers (1-8-16)

I.C.E. Free NYC – NOW! 
STOP DEPORTATIONS!
Say NO to SECURE Communities. Sanctuary Cities, Si!

45 minutes – 11 speakers  (2- 4 minutes each) A Sidewalk forum with no amplification.
Still, they forge ahead. Practiced. Skilled at disseminating agitprop to the home-team.

Flickr Slideshow of initial protest (before the street shut-down) Please place mouse on picture to access slide show

DSC_7537 copy

No one is in doubt amongst those lining the walls. Dedicated to an ICE Free NYC.Playing to the cameras from RT TV, Iran’s Press TV, NY 1, Telemundo, Democracy Now! and Japanese TV, NHK.They hang around. The media. They film (a little) Do interview (a few) But, the NY-ICE counter-protestor [in the background] was noticed by only a few…
The media reports are usually short and simple. So, what results from this all, too, familiar protest (with such modest coverage.) Perhaps the results, too, are simple: The reason for the treason: The illegals. Their Families. Their children. Won-over. Manipulated.

The Illegals, convinced only the Communist Left cares about them, work hard to repay The Party. A voting block they can count on.
So, no matter that this protest seemed small and quiet.
Taking only a few NYPD officers off-the-streets. Patrolling the sidewalk. Making sure the entrance to the ICE Federal building wasn’t blocked.
Even their “parade”,  a small, quiet procession, was so low-key that it only involved a couple of scooter cops. [a walk around the block]HOWEVER, there was more. Given a heads-up by a protestor about “A PLAN” Don’t leave.  It was about to happen. Soon.
So, I hung around. Waiting. Walking ’round-the-block.
And there it was. As we came back to the Federal Building. A Street Action. (THE PLAN)  SHUT DOWN THE STREETS!
The anarchist’s favorite toy : Chaos. Confusion. PLANNED.Controlled, but, still, Chaos. The best laid plans (of Mice and Men) Shut the whole Fuckin’ City DOWN!” (If they could)
See previous post for more on “The Plan” [Part 1] Below is the Video Playlist and Flickr slideshow of the Civil Disobedience:

And some extra screen shots of the action (place mouse on picture to access slide show)

scrn shot block traffic cuffs copy

Back to the speakers and their with 30-45 minutes of propaganda. Repeated. Over and over and over.

Video Playlist of the speakers (before they shut down the streets)

The average guy. (America) Needs to hear this anti-American blather. Exposed. Countered. But, the media promotes them. Quietly. Without contradiction.Transparency (for real) drives the LEFTISTS to distraction. (They do NOT like exposure.) Controlling every word. Every picture. (Immigration Prison? Family over (evil) Profits) ‘Trade secrets’ carefully disseminated. (To those chosen)

The ‘subtle’ approach demands more than the intellect. Emotions, Si!
The wrong press. The wrong message- unapproved. Not allowed. Requires ignoring those reporters. Bloggers. Blocking their cameras. This, too, is A PLAN.

So, I FILM. Expose (irritate and frustrate them). American should demand Transparency Unapproved!

Granted these are not Trade Secrets: Open Borders. Down with American Imperialism. The Evils of Greedy Capitalism. No Prisons. No “Crime and Punishment”.
Crime (maybe) but punishment? Not for their Comrades. And NOT if you are a person of color. Or, say, ILLEGAL. Say NO to Fascism!  [Yeah, that’s the ticket]
They preach the evils of White America. The White man’s 21st century world is Unfair! He enslaves men and women, black and brown.
The White Man must suffer. His greedy Empire-building must be stopped. White people GET OUT.  Go BACK where you came from. Reverse Racism,  Si! This palaver is but a secular, Marxist-controlled religion, peopled by faux- Christians.  “Do-Gooder” Lefties who Say NO to Secure Communities. Open the Borders! STOP Deportations!
They chip away at inconvenient laws. Nurture unrest. Manipulating. Corrupting (or ignoring) the RULE Of LAW.
The American Constitution-Bad. Communism-Good. Anarchy, Si! 
Even though the NYPD was caught off-guard by the SECRET Plan, they kept the peace.
Nothing new at Varick and Houston. Pro-Forma. Dealing with the well-rehearsed wild-side was a well-rehearsed NYPD.
The police were calm, focused, professional. They are a fine police force (in spite of De Blasio). Firmly dealing with the insurgents.  Bratty. Spoiled. Entitled. Anarchists with a plan. A game-plan. (For now)  For Real …. when we don’t expect it …
Can we hope to stop this insanity? Not while we have the Mark-Viveritos, De Blasios, Cuomos and Obamas (with Clintons and Sanders in the wings) All ELECTED to office and deconstructing America one day, one year, one decade  at a time.

They have a PLAN. 1. Create Chaos. 2. Restore order.  3. ‘Keep the Peace’. [Can we say “Banana Republic?”]

Eventually, once accomplished, there will be no recovery from their mission. Just passive acceptance. Sad. Sad. Sad.

Chaos as Thugs Block NYC Streets-Demand ICE-FREE ZONE (1-8-16)

          THIS IS HOW THE THIRD WORLD BEHAVES.

January 8, 2016. Noon to 2 pm (approximately). Varick and Houston Streets. NYC.

The three videos I’m posting first are of the civil disobedience (pictures and the speakers videos posted in Part 2)

  VIDEO- Police removing the Arm Tubes ( it wasn’t easy)

Traffic was blocked. Streets shut-down. A time consuming removal of the Chinese ARM cuffs. It took a good solid hour from the beginning of the lock down til the 7 were cut loose from the tubes so they could be arrested.

First they started with the wire cutters for the chicken wire. Once police saw the Tube layers, they came back with SAWS. During all of this, the streets were still blocked and the Illegals and their Commie Chums screamed, taunted and cursed at the police with the usual ad hominems.

The NYPD was GREAT. Calm. Professional.

This civil disobedience – blocking the NY streets, sitting on cars and threatening the drivers, happened AFTER a PRESS CONFERENCE AND RALLY BY ICE-FREE NYC in front of the Federal Building.

The action was TO DEMAND ICE-FREE ZONES and to STOP RAIDS & STOP DEPORTATIONS. They claim this protest is in response to the ongoing raids on non-citizens [AKA ILLEGALS] with criminal convictions (!) … and …. on Central American Refugees

It was a mess for over an hour and the press LOVED them. They are well-rehearsed as their obnoxious video of the actual shutdown reveals. [I didn’t witness the shut-down as it was happening- I arrived after they took the streets]

                    

VIDEO –  Is as I arrived. They distracted police with a walk around two city blocks, back to Varick St. where we find the “Chinese Arm Cuffed 7 ” blocking the streets to traffic. With signs that say “F*CK ICE” and “F*CK Your Borders”, they block traffic during lunch hour and generally demonstrate that they feel like an entitled mob.  They also sit on cars.

                     

VIDEO – The Police start to move traffic (a bit) while the illegals keep blocking the traffic and SCREAMING. At 2:42 the Police begin to examine how to remove the Chinese cuffs. Layers of duct tape and chicken wire over what looked like a metal tubing.  This was  clearly civil disobedience – blocking the NY streets, sitting on cars and threatening the drivers.

 One driver that they harassed says that he is trying to simply get to work, but they don’t care.  And, all this occurs during the honking of horns of other drivers trying to get to their destinations for whom these demonstrators have complete disregard.

After they were cut OUT of the Tubes the police were able to arrest them. Finally the streets were clear and all 7 were arrested.

Seven arrested at protest outside ICE offices in NYC in spite of their OUT RAGE.

In response to the ongoing raids on non-citizens [AKA ILLEGALS] with criminal convictions [hello!] and deportations of Central American Refugees, 7 individuals wearing arm locking devices sat down outside Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) offices blocking the intersection of Varick and West Houston in NYC. All were taken into custody. [of course they were!]

Another report claims that their fellow activists/thugs had to stand in the street to PROTECT the Plucky 7 from being run over! (they will say anything to get attention)

Their own face book video shows (as do my own videos): They STOPPED the TRAFFIC from moving! (and there were PLENTY of police standing all around them) It’s a really odd shaped player – a bit large – but near the end- it’s short- is where you get a good look at all the police in the streets … not  the thugs–and NO CARS.

THEY ALWAYS FAKE PAIN –  One guy showed ‘pain’ while the NYPD used the saws (of some sort) to cut the tubes open. He then collapsed after they stood him upright. The crowd went “insane” with a mini-riot because he was “in pain” (see first video up top)

Disgusting. Arrogant. Green hats (fake lawyers) were taking down police officers names. Practically glued to them.

And then : FREEDOM:  The NY Daily News Reports

Seven were charged with resisting arrest and obstructing governmental administration. Another protestor was charged with not having a permit for a sound device.

(One of the seven) Diego Ibanez, 28, a veteran of the Occupy Wall Street movement, tossed the paint on the city’s top cop in November 2014 while protesting a grand jury’s decision not to indict cop Darren Wilson for fatally shooting Michael Brown.

   The Lucky, Plucky Seven Are OUT of Jail (and PROUD)
248236_10153352108852666_6609387774587264343_n

ALSO, typical propaganda LIES about what went down came from Communist Reporter, Caleb Maupin of Iran’s Press TV. [Caleb thinks he’s on Fifth Avenue – not Varick – maybe he was reporting from Tehran- since I never saw him at the protest- BAD Caleb]

Press TV – Iran and Caleb’s LIES  – claiming this was a PEACEFUL Protest. No way was that a PEACEFUL Demonstration.

AND – The thugs are proudly promoting that The Commie Speaker of the NYC Council Stands with these Thugs! – OF COURSE –

NY-ICE was THERE !

“They created chaos during a NYC lunch hour, and they don’t care, as long as they got in their street theater.

Of notable absence is any politician or political candidate.

They care little if ambulances or emergency vehicles are trying to pass.  The positive gleaned from all of this is that more people will come to our side after seeing the siege they try to put us under.  As one of our more recent NY ICE Members put it, “This has to STOP”.
The opposition supports ILLEGALS. OPEN BORDERS and wants to “stop deportations” and “raids” . They want NYC to be an ICE-FREE Zone.”

“Commies United” vs Penn. GOP – “DUMP TRUMP”- Plaza Hotel (12-11-15) Part 3

Part 3  of a three part series
The Speakers Protest in front of the Plaza.

December 11, 2015. Noon. NY’s Plaza Hotel.
Communities UNITED! Confronting Trump…
Say NO to Trump’s Racism and Hate”
“Trump is a symptom of a white supremacist sickness that is rooted deeply in our political system. We are mobilizing this Friday to share a vision of communities beyond policing, beyond incarceration, and beyond detention.”

A “DUMP TRUMP” protest supported by these organizations:

Families for Freedom
Black Alliance for Just Immigration- BAJI
Queer Detainee Empowerment Project- QDEP
Responsible Endowments Coalition
Showing Up for Racial Justice- SURJ
Council on American-Islamic Relations- CAIR
BAYAN- USA
Jews For Racial and Economic Justice- JFREJ
Black and Pink
Jewish Voices for Peace
Arab American Association of NY

“A liberal activist group said that Pennsylvania Republicans should dump Donald Trump as the speaker at a party fundraiser after the mogul proposed a “total and complete” ban on Muslims entering the U.S.”


Game On: Trump was inside at the Pennsylvania GOP’s annual Commonwealth Club luncheon.

The party is standing by its man. Donald Trump will be the keynote speaker at our Friday fundraiser in New York,” Pennsylvania GOP spokeswoman Megan Sweeney said. [And he was]


As I arrived, I saw a large crowd hoping for a glimpse of “The Donald”.
NO PRESS was allowed inside the luncheon, so the press and passersby (LOTS of “just plain folk”) were jammed at the entrance.
Also, in Grand Army Plaza, was the “Dump Trump” protest.  A crowd comprised of Commies (young and old) …… Illegal Trespassing supporters [like Percy Lujan from Revolutionary Student Co-ordinating Committee) and lots of trend-setting white-folk.
Muslims (of course) —- many Muslimas actually—
A Christian Clergywoman, who held high her sign,  “Love Your Muslim Neighbor”.
As though LOVE  would have stopped Boston’s murderous Tsarnaev Brothers and their VILE, INSANE mother,4_292013_aptopix-russia-boston-sus-28201_c0-0-1152-671_s885x516 Yeah. LOVE. That’ll stop ’em.

The ubiquitous Rabbi Michael Feinberg (Rabbi for Human Rights & Exec. Dir. Greater N. Y. Labor-Religion Coalition.) present as always…

The Speakers: At Noon, the Commies (and friends) began a lively “Dump Trump” protest with many speakers crammed into just one hour.

They preached, lectured, chanted and SCREAMED! (often)  “ORGANIZE AND EDUCATE, THAT IS HOW WE END THE HATE”.


“Resistance to U.S. Imperialism. (War and Prisons.) We’re here taking Collective Action. We also want to build Collective Trust. Take a moment to get to know the folks around you.” [had a moment of “Meet and Greet” ] Then an Hispanic female from Families For Freedom led a ‘walk through’ of some chants, like:”We’re Gonna Bring Trump Down” and “End the US War Machine from Syria, to Iraq and the Philippines”. “We’re not gonna stand for Fascists like him and the Fascists he represents. He is the epitome of US Imperialism. How dare he slander all Muslims”
 VIDEO
                    
Playlist of all 11 short videos

However, I lost the video I took of the FAKE Republican. (My bad.) But, what a hoot she was! She was introduced as an EX-Republican! Now reformed. Enlightened. She sees the ERROR of her misguided days as a Repub. (ya think?)

What made her change?  “It was the HIS-To-Ry of FASCISM!!” (twitter link)

[Video from Ash J on Twitter #NYC Anti-#Trump protesters across street from Plaza]

“Your assignment today, if you choose to do it”
—  CLAIM to be an ex-Repub who voted for GW — (yeah. That’s the ticket)  fake repubFAKE REPUB WOMAN during her speech. (Do people actually BELIEVE her?) claimed to be EX GOP copyThe crowd during the speakers’ hour was also entertained by professional protestor, Marni Halasa. Often dressed as an NYPD “BIMBO Cop” aka Babs the Bankster-Buster. Whatever the costume, always on SKATES and Camera-Ready.

Do people READ her coyly written signs? Or do they just want to take a picture with a pretty girl.
Once the speakers dispersed, a team of “t.RUTT” artistes paraded a guerrilla-bus painted with “t. RUTT” (t. RUMP) ’round and ’round the Plaza traffic circle.
Even though the press was in absentia, the bus team was quite pleased with their guerrilla-art bus “success”. [See also Twitter link for bus]
The woman who was interviewed by NY1 ( in video at 00:56) seemed to represent the artist (or was the artist) not quite sure.

“Trump is a Black Swan ” (so says she) “… a metaphor that describes an event that comes as a surprise, has a major effect and is often inappropriately rationalized after the fact with the benefit of hindsight.

                                          VIDEO

                    

NEXT (after the t.RUMP bus) I found the Commies – a small group of Muslim, Arab, immigrant, and LGBTQ community members – at the south entrance to the Plaza regrouping after being THROWN OUT of the GOP Luncheon (See Part 2)
