Feb. 10, 2018 – Foley Square, NYC
9 am to Noon

In the words of the hard-core left hosting this rally, You Can’t Deport a MOVEMENT!  “There is a new stay for Ravi’s deportation […] this moment matters now MORE THAN EVER! We must stand up for the countless thousands of Ravis and Jeans and show that we are powerful together! “

“We leave no one behind! ICE cannot target our leaders OR our communities!”

Co-Sponsoring Organizations from the LEFT include: New Sanctuary Coalition, New York Immigration Coalition, 32BJ SEIU, Bronx Immigration Partnership, Copwatch Patrol Unit, Critical Resistance, Detention Watch Network, Desis Rising Up and Moving (DRUM), Democratic Socialists of America, Domestic Workers Alliance, Equality Labs, Immigrant Defense Project, Interfaith Center of New York,

Video Part 1

[Face Book] “ICE is escalating its attack on immigrants and only our movement can stop them […] demand a #NEWSANCTUARYCITY”

The New Sanctuary Coalition (founded in 2007) acts as a network of interfaith congregations and organizations that stand with families and communities resisting detention and deportation.

Always encouraging to see JDL-NY giving THANKS to ICE! (Immigration and Customs Enforcement)

Still, [Face Book] moans from the LEFT droned on: “We need to stop the escalation of ICE and the president’s attacks on immigrant communities, including targeting dissidents for deportation…” 

— “targeting” FELONS? BAD ICE. BAD U.S. Government —

“… (ICE) threatening Dreamers with detention, ICE efforts to infiltrate courts and churches and up to the racist rhetoric of the president and his office.”

“In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we’re asking friends and fellow activists to help hand deliver a message of love for all immigrants to ICE’s office by showing […] solidarity with Ravi, Dreamers, TPS recipients, workers, families and community members.”

“We’ll use messages of love and solidarity to combat the “good immigrant, bad immigrant” narrative. We resent the pressure on immigrants to prove their social or economic worth in order to justify their humanity.”

“This is a fight against this racist administration’s attempt to overstep the constitution and cherry pick who has the right to freedom and who will be terrorized into silence.”

“… this movement has deep roots and cannot be eradicated. We’re going to show them that you can’t deport a movement.”

Ravi’s status managed a reprieve—again: Immigrant rights activist temporarily avoids deportation.

“Justice was restored today( 2-09-18), at least temporarily, as Mr. Ragbir is now able to remain in the United States and free until the Court reviews his constitutional claims,” Ragbir’s attorney R. Stanton Jones said.

Ragbir — who has been a US resident since 1994 — has a 2001 felony fraud conviction from which prompted a 2006 order of deportation that Ragbir had successfully challenged until his arrest last month.” [NY Post]

Video Part 2 – as they did the Immigrant March

“Reps for Ragbir — the Trinidad native — also announced that they will be filing a lawsuit in Manhattan federal court on Friday against ICE, Homeland Security, the Dept. of Justice and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to permanently stop officials from attempts to deport Ragbir and for relief for other immigrants rights activists who have also been targeted for deportation.” [NY Post]

“Ragbir slammed the Trump administration’s immigration policy […] calling it “ethnic cleansing.” [NY Daily News]

++ Then at NOON to 1:30 pm, the NY March For Immigrants’ Rally gathered in Herald Square

Their reasoning and accusations (as always) IGNORE the Rule of Law as the rail against the U.S. Government: “We are appalled by this administration’s attempt to pit immigrants against each other.”

We’re protesting against the anti-immigrant policies proposed by the White House and the GOP legislators, especially the recent White House proposal to end family reunification in exchange for DACA legalization.”

“Legal Immigrants, DACA and every American who opposes the anti-immigrant agenda are joining hands to fight racism, bigotry and xenophobia. United we stand, divided we fall.”

“There are roughly 7.5 billion human beings on this planet. None of them came from outer space, so none of them are aliens. So I refuse to call any human being an alien.”

“Furthermore, no human being is “illegal.
Any law that outlaws humanity is a bad and unjust law.

Apartheid was legal. That did not make it right. The human beings breaking Apartheid laws were humans fighting for justice, not “illegals.”

The Holocaust was legal. That did not make it right. Human beings breaking Holocaust laws were humans fighting for justice, not “illegals.”

“Slavery was legal. That did not make it right. Human beings fighting against slavery laws were not “illegals.” They were human beings fighting for justice.

Segregation was legal. That not make it right. Human Beings breaking Jim Crow laws were not “illegal.” They were human beings fighting for justice.”

“The earth has no lines on it. All borders are man made.
Crossing a man made line is only a crime because people have made it one.

People crossing a man made line are still human beings. They do not deserve to be detained or tortured. It is wrong to rip their families apart for any reason.

The earth belongs to all of us and we belong to it. Any human being should be able to live, with their family, any damn place they please on this planet.”

No human being is illegal. All this deportation of human beings is wrong and racist. There is absolutely no justification for treating human beings in this way.”  (This article was written by Claire Cohen.)#March4Immigrants

Wonder if Mexico or Japan or China, will open their borders. Open Borders. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

DACA Illegals say Impeach Trump vs Patriots Support President Trump

August 15, 2017.  Day 3 of the obnoxious hate-fest of anti-fascist FASCISTS falsely accusing the president of being an “Islamophobic bigoted “fascist”.

Hating on Donald Trump and his racist buddy, Mike Pence, with cries of IMPEACH! was de rigueur.

The protest theme might have confused some passersby: DEFEND  DACA Illegals, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and TPS (Temporary Protected Status).What did that racist,Islamophobic President do this time?

“… we have to prepare for the worst and get ready to fight mass deportation. We showed up at airports to fight the Muslim and Refugee Ban and now DREAMers and people who have lived here legally for decades with TPS are in imminent danger.”

The chants also included support of the DACA illegals and their dream of a  DREAM Act ,  “No borders. No walls. No Hate. No Fear. Immigrants are welcome here” as they continued to unload on Trump.

The hard-core Fascist Left made it  clear: this was definitely another Trump-Pence hate-fest.

Day 3 – Flickr slide show


Scheduled from 5 to 7 pm – they stayed long past 7 pm- the illegals and their Marxist-Fascist chums wouldn’t leave.  But, NEITHER did the patriots! The protest and counter-protest rolled on into the dark of night.

Reading signs, like, “White silence equals white consent” and ” Go back to hell, you white supremacist piece of shit” begs the question, “Can you feel the LOVE?”

Back to the beginning. 5 pm, when the patriots began their counter-protest of flags and signs: the East side of Fifth ave, a public sidewalk, next to the Defend DACA pen. But that was soon ended by decree: the anti-fascist fascists proclaimed, “OUR sidewalk. Our streets. Get them outta here.”


And so – the officers did just that, after about 30 minutes of whining, they closed a public sidewalk to everyone (the anti-Trump rally excepted – of course).

The patriots were banished to the West side of Fifth Ave. (The Leftist Fascisti made that complicated,TOO.)

No matter the harassment, the patriots did not vacate (the police knew they had a right of peaceful assembly) SO, the West side of Fifth remained their Bully Pulpit.

Edited periscope video of street action. It was an hour 23 minutes. A one-time experiment (for me) using periscope. Edited to about 13 minutes.

Clearly, Patriotism “Trumped Hate”! Why else do they SILENCE us.

7 pm came and the DACA rally was herded one block south into another pen. When asked WHY the DACA  protest was still going 20 minutes after their permit, a White Shirt officer (a Lieutenant, Captain or Inspector) played “dumb”.  Like really, he said to me,  “What time is it?” ( “7:20”) “Oh …” as he walked away. (We all know HE KNEW what time it was.)

Flickr slide show of screen shots from periscope vide0, it wound-up being the only record of some of the signs.

asshole again copy

So, the Fascist Left stayed on as the Trump-Pence hatred resonated with signs like “Worst President EVER”.

 The patriots kept moving, NO stopping allowed, while the anti-fascist FASCISTI continued to mix with and harass the patriots, even advocating murder.

But, this LEFTIST professor from Staten Island, I’ve forgotten his name, stopped and stood (observed by the police) and LECTURED the people sitting on the steps of the Presbyterian church at 55th st for about 5 minutes or so.

Around 8 PM, the second wave of patriots willingly moved to a pen at 56th St. where they FINALLY were assaulted; a patriot was sucker-punched.

Pictures from the arrest (thank you Karen L)

Re “the assault” of a MAGA counter-protestor :

“Two people were arrested during a second wave of protests at Trump Tower on Tuesday, police said.

Roughly 500 demonstrators gathered around the building and faced off with about two dozen Trump supporters. At 9:30 p.m., a protester walked up to someone in the pro-Trump camp (Tim) and punched him in the face as the victim chanted at those opposed to Trump. Cops quickly arrested the attacker.”

Boston,  Aug 19. The FASCIST LEFT continued to assault free speech, these club-wielding Fascist-LEFTIST mobs, self-righteously bludgeoned the American Right, justifying violence with, “FREE SPEECH For ME NOT For THEE”.

The Boston Police were awesome. Protecting the Boston FREE SPEECH rally-mates who had a Constitutional Right to Assemble.  But the mob was uncontrollable.

Where THUGS Rule, violence is KING.

Some final thoughts from a face book friend (an attorney) on the tenor of these protests and free speech:

“(…) “free speech” (…) It’s about the freedom to express, not the freedom to shout louder than someone else so they can’t be heard. It’s about providing everyone with the right to express their views, not about allowing them to infringe other people’s rights.

….  if you don’t protect unpopular speech, other forms of speech are vulnerable.

You get to PROTEST. You don’t get to interrupt, quash, drown out, or SILENCE someone else’s views.

Well, I guess in today’s world you DO. Today, you tear down a statue because of its symbolism, or have someone fired because his beliefs are abhorrent.”

” Tomorrow, you burn books and lock up “undesirables.”

The New Tyranny – America 2017 – Shut up or DIE”
As the LIE rolls on…
