November 18, 2017. 1 pm. Washington Square Park, NYC: “Refuse Fascism“ – AGAIN. The Noisemakers Brigade, pots and pans in hand, made a childish NOISE meant to drive out the Trump/Pence Regime.
I observed a small noisy group pounding on their pots and pans led by 22 years old, Eva Sahana, the youthful FACE of “Refuse Fascism” as she preached the Communist Party line. [FYI- Refuse Fascism is a project of the Revolutionary Communist Party.]
Like a bad sci-fi movie, she points to four or five young student Republicans standing QUIETLY in the crowd. THEY are considered dangerous. (see video at 00:27)
Eva calls them out as “trouble makers” who aim to shut down their protest march. NOT possible, but reality is so boring.
Finally, after about 30 minutes, the Fascist Brigade began its march; bang, bang, banging on their pots as they round the very dry Washington Square fountain heading for the streets.
Another of the Fascisti leaders , Jay W. Walker, harassed the Young Republicans by bouncing back and forth like a water bug skimming the surface of a fetid pond.
All while he went “motor mouth” on them, “Stop hitting me, you violent Fascist. Stop hitting me you violent thug.” The kids just laughed as he bounced back and forth, trying to block them. (see 1:53 in the video)
Eventually, the “Refuse Fascism” Fascists, including Jay Walker, left the Square. The young Repubs stayed behind speaking with a few passersby, including some media.
Before leaving, I was able to briefly enjoy the usual eclectic goings-on that the park attracts: Climate Time Capsule Project.
And a LARGE people shaped tunnel as you enter or exit the square.
Au Revoir ….Til the next Trump – Pence Noise Brigade March returns; purveyors of a Communist Nightmare that just won’t go away.
