Mayor de Blasio, Gov. Cuomo wade into controversy in city’s Columbus Day Parade

“A torrent of boos rained down on Mayor de Blasio as he walked in the Columbus Day Parade in Midtown Monday. Some New Yorkers at the celebration of the city’s Italian-American heritage were irate that de Blasio is considering removing the iconic statue of Christopher Columbus at Columbus Circle. “ [NY Daily News]

But, what I heard and saw was a lot of happiness, particularly when they saw the Save the Columbus Statue signs.

“The usual suspects have discovered that Christopher Columbus was no 21st century liberal. Of course, that shouldn’t surprise anyone since he lived in a time of empires, slavery, monarchies, and ignorance.
But he rose above his time and literally united the world. Without him there would be no America, no us.

We don’t celebrate Columbus for his failings, including holding once common beliefs which we rightly have come to abhor. We celebrate him for his unique, even heroic, virtues. We celebrate him for having helped make the modern world.” [townhall]

NYC Italian-Americans: Save Columbus Circle Statue!

“They have forgotten what the contributions of different cultures have meant to various societies. There is the bad, as we have seen from history, and as we see now, but there is also the good. If Caucasians are so bad, then why is one section of the world struggling to empty into the Western lands? Do you see any exodus headed elsewhere?” [Facebook]

** 1891 lynchings Italian Americans

In late 19th-century America there was a growing prejudice against Italians, who were immigrating to the American South in large numbers to fill the shortage of cheap labor created by the end of slavery. Sugar planters, in particular, sought workers who were lower paid and more compliant than former slaves; they hired immigrant recruiters who began bringing the Italians to southern Louisiana. In the 1890s, thousands of Italians were arriving in New Orleans each year. Many settled in the French Quarter, which by the early 20th century became known as “Little Sicily.”[22] 

Southern Italians were not considered full-fledged members of the “white race”… Between 1890 and 1910, Sicilians made up less than 4 percent of the white male population, yet were roughly 40 percent of the white victims of southern lynch mobs.[54] ** [The Silent Majority No More]

Italian-Americans fight movement to abolish Columbus Day

Some 35,000 people are expected to march in Monday’s Columbus Day Parade, which will wind up Fifth Avenue from 44th Street to 72nd Street, honoring the explorer sent by Spain.

Columbus is celebrated in Latin America, too. A massive monument to the explorer, the Columbus Lighthouse, opened in 1992 in Santo Domingo, in the Dominican Republic. Puerto Rico commemorates Discovery Day on Nov. 19, marking the day Columbus landed there. [NY Post]

Ralph Arellanes, chairman of the activist group Hispano Round Table of New Mexico, said that as a Hispanic, he supports Columbus Day. Arellanes also said he doesn’t understand why Italians claim Columbus for themselves when Columbus was sailing for Spain

“It was the marriage of two peoples creating a new people, in a new land,” he said. Though Columbus “wasn’t a saint,” he said, he believes Anglo-Americans like President Andrew Jackson should be held more responsible than the Spanish for the hardships Native Americans faced[NY Post]

Why We Should Celebrate Columbus Day from Osia.org

Columbus Day is the ONLY Day recognizing the contributions of 26 million Italian Americans.

“INDIGENOUS : originating or occurring naturally in a particular place is native. “Indigenous Peoples Day” is a FRAUD.”

How did “indigenous peoples” get to America? Conventional wisdom says that “Native” Americans descended from prehistoric hunters who walked from northeast Asia across a land bridge, formed at the end of the Ice Age, to Alaska some 12,000 years ago. American Indians resemble the people of Mongolia, China and Siberia.

Where did the “Native” American Indians come from? The ancestors of “Native” American populations from the tip of Chile in the south to Canada in the north, migrated from Asia in at least three waves… An overview of the people who first discovered and lived in the Americas, called American Indians or Native Americans.

Many thousands of years ago, late in the Ice Age, the Indians journeyed across the Bering land bridge, from Asia into Alaska. Their descendants explored along the west coast of North America.

Most of the scientific evidence is that Indian ancestors came from Asia in prehistoric times, when mammoths and other ancient animals did. This would have had to happen more than 20,000 years ago, when there was still a land bridge there … [NOT Native: CASE CLOSED.]

BDS Leftists enraged by Cuomo’s anti-BDS support for Israel (6-09-16)

Ramadan 2016 : ISRAEL.(June 8) Murder by Jihad; Orlando (June 10), Mass Murder by Jihad; France (June 14) Murder by JIHAD.

Ramadan-the Month of Jihad” when Jihadi’s Kill the Infidel”.

https://media.licdn.com/mpr/mpr/jc/AAEAAQAAAAAAAAW5AAAAJDlmYzZlNjJkLTc1NjYtNGRhOS05YmFlLWJhMTQ4YmI5MmU0MA.png
Yet, the Jihadis remain a mystery to those who control the message. The media (the President) BLAME anyone or anything BUT NOT Islam. Islam, is the Religion of “Peace”.

And then came RAMADAN 2016 (June 5th to July 5) On Wednesday, June 8, 2016 (the day before the “Shame on Cuomo” protest) Jihadis MURDERED innocent people sitting in a restaurant in Tel Aviv.  In celebration, Muslims shared candies, laughing, smiling, cheering for this ‘successful’ act of terrorism.

  • Hamas has praised the attack …  Fireworks were set off in Gaza and Hebron in celebration of the attack.[48]
  • Some Palestinian citizens in East Jerusalem and Tulkarm started to celebrate the event by handing out candies …  Jpost reported that Salma al-Jamal, a Palestinian news anchor working at Al-Jazeera TV, wrote on Twitter: “The Ramadan operation is the best answer to stories about ‘peace process’ that some people are trying in vain to revive.”

On Thursday, June 9, 2016. The Shame on Governor Cuomo protest gathered outside the NY Governor’s Manhattan office building. Soc/Commie/Progs, many anti-Israel Jews, were angry.
Very angry that the Governor had signed an executive order against the BDS movement.

Jewish Voice for Peace, a social justice group that co-organized the protest, blasted Cuomo’s executive order as an unconstitutional “attempt to repress the growing movement for Palestinian rights.”

Boycott for Justice Flyer0001Gov. Cuomo proclaimed, “If you boycott Israel, New York will boycott you.

“I am signing an Executive Order that says very clearly we are against the BDS movement,” Cuomo tweeted on Sunday.

About the BDS bill: “Gov. Cuomo’s executive order – the first of its kind signed by a governor – demands that a list of businesses supporting BDS directly or indirectly be drawn up over the next six months.”

In New York, we lead by example. We are also a place of action. We want to take immediate action because we want Israel to know that we are on their side,” the governor said

[…] A wave of anti-BDS legislation has been introduced, and in some cases passed, in Congress and in state legislatures across the country, including South Carolina, Illinois, Florida, Pennsylvania, California, Indiana, and Virginia.”

“This order sends the message that this state will do everything in its power to end this hateful, intolerant campaign. New York and Israel share an unbreakable bond and I pray that the Israeli and Palestinian people will find a way to live side by side and find peace, prosperity, and security,” he said.

Next, videos and slideshows.  A look at the “Shame On Cuomo” protestors and the stalwart opposition.
A confident pro-Israel counter-protest,comprised of AFSI (Americans For A Safe Israel) and JCC Watch members, were a very vivid presence.

[scroll through a 4 page PDF handout from anti-BDS counter-protest,” How Progressive are We When we are Supporting Or Promoting Hatred of Jews?“]

The “Thank You Gov Cuomo” counter-protest infiltrated the sidewalk maize of Lefties, their THANK YOU Governor signs held high over the crowd. 
They walked within the gridlocked Commie-circle of bodies that was thickest at the entrance to the office building (of course).
The Commies pretended to co-operate with the police who worked valiantly to keep them moving. 
But, the well-rehearsed sidewalk blockage (“somehow”) did not get loosened …. while the drum, drum, drummer kept on drumming along.

The counter-protest in support of Cuomo’s anti-BDS executive order.

RAMADAN 2016 [June 5-July 5] there have (already) … been Jihad murders… There will be many more …. as many Muslims [observing Ramadan] worldwide read the entire Qur’an … [it is a FACT that]

Jihad groups routinely and unanimously couch their appeals and justifications in Qur’anic terms.

(proclaiming it to be) “a month of calamity everywhere for nonbelievers”?

Brace yourself: there are (still) 16 days to go.
