“We Will Not Be Banned: The Broken Promise of Equal Justice” Hosted by CAIR-New York

July 4, 2017 – NOON- Fifth Floor Atrium-  #TakeTrumpTower

“We Will Not Be Banned: The broken promise of equal justice” Hosted by CAIR-New York

“CAIR is America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.”

Speakers and partners included NY Day of Remembrance Committee, Jewish social justice contingent (Jews for Racial and Economic Justice, Jews Say No!, Jewish Voice for Peace) NY Civil Liberties Union, LatinoJustice, and T’ruah.

On July 4th, 2017 (Noon)  CAIR-NY sponsored a presser; a Muslim-led teach-in and rally in the Fifth Floor Atrium- a public space – in what they described as the “hideous” Trump Tower. (though later they chanted “Whose tower, OUR Tower”)

They claim, the purpose of the presser was to highlight how the United States has repeatedly broken her founding promises and (they claim) targeted groups on the basis of race, religion, or ideology.

The speakers insisted their communities have historically been targeted – from the U.S.’s internment of Americans of Japanese descent, to U.S.’s treatment of Puerto Rico, to President Trump’s Muslim Ban. So, CAIR-NY and their (social justice) partners used this day to reaffirm their commitment to that most “basic American tenet, “ALL are created equal“.

America’s 241st Independence Day, was marred by these protestors who claimed that President Trump stands in a long line of American leaders who sought political power by marginalizing and demonizing minority groups.

AS NOON approached, I arrived – looking for protestors.

11:55 I see barricades but no protestors; just empty pens. Odd. Then I saw ONE – no two – women in front of the doors to the tower.

That, too, was odd; verboten, actually, since a previous Trump Tower protest (on Aug 31, 2016) that BLOCKED entry to the Tower created more crowd control at the entrance.

Guess things have relaxed with time. And THEN I remembered, there is a Fifth Floor Public Space in the Tower.

” … part of an agreement Trump made in the 1970s […] an agreement in which a developer receives special permissions from the city in exchange for the inclusion … of spaces open to the general public.

The Lefties have protested there previously, testing the “public space right-to-assemble.”  SO, once I actually READ the sign the women were holding,   DIRECTIONS to the Fifth Floor Presser, I headed inside.

Went through security, bags, camera screened. Rode the elevator to the Fifth Floor with the Fox5 cameraman AND the very friendly, Albert Fox Cahn, CAIR–NY’s Legal Director! Then,  VOILA – the atrium …

The protestors have gathered here for CAIR’s Independence Day Presser.

Familiar faces, too, like Donna Nevel (Jewish Voice For Peace).

Labor Union Rabbi Michael Feinberg (Interfaith Worker Justice) .

Soon, Nevel and Feinberg put out warnings on ME to CAIR’s Mr. Albert Cahn, who seemed to regret his cheery greeting in the elevator. NERVOUS I guess, cause I –  the ENEMY- was in his – CAIR’s – very sacred – PUBLIC – space.

Now, he asked me who was I with. What media. And another person wanted to know if I was a volunteer. Really? Come on, guys, first thing I signed-in as media. ALL are WELCOME here, right?

All proceeded normally, so it seemed, with cameras in place; waiting for the speakers. (2 pictures David Moriya )

Video: Then the MC made his welcoming speech. All was calm.

However, as soon as the first refugee speaker (Poor William) began (all would be refugee/emigres sharing their stories) the JDL counter-protest began, too.

Turning ALL of their Alinsky-tactics back at them, the JDL caused palpitations amongst the Lefties who “discreetly” scrambled with their signs and banners to cover up the very mobile  JDL flag and a Blue Line Flag.

The first actual speaker was “Poor William from Iran”. He spoke calmly and succinctly about why he fled Iran (he’s Jewish) and his uncertain status in the U.S.  While  in the back ground, the JDL flag was very busy.

VIDEO – William from Iran

The Blue Line Flag stayed put in one corner, not easy to see, but that did not deter the Lefties. They seemed MORE upset by this flag. (So much for grateful patriotism.) Of of course – President TRUMP.

I stayed. Covered all the speakers. And SO DID THE JDL. They stayed,too. Heard later that the CAIR hosts asked the police to remove the “INTERLOPERS”. But, this was met with a  firm, NO. Public Space. (Right Back atcha, CAIR!) Which then accounts for the nice little speech the MC made mid-presser.

“Let’s keep our eyes up here- at the podium. Ignore the  protestors. They have a right to be here. This is America. but, let’s focus on why we are here.”

Leaving the atrium, I was surprised to see educator, Debbie Almontaser.

Almontaser – of the infamous Khalil Gibran Public School Madrassa and Intifada NYC T-shirt. (Picture/link 2007)

Currently, Dr. Almontaser sits on Public Advocate Tish JamesJewish, Muslim, and Sikh Task Force to Combat Hate. Almontaser’s first step when leading a session she creates a community agreement about how to interact during the session. For example:

Approach others with respect
Withhold judgment
Don’t make identity-based assumptions
“Listen to learn”; use “generous listening”
Accept differences
Be aware of privilege and intersectionality
Assume good intentions
Don’t take it personally if someone says you’ve said something offensive

Debbie (Almontaser) was having fun sharing some very animated selfies.

The Green Hat fake legal team – standing at the door – looking lost  next to real police

And Patriots who had been in the back were now at the exit, continuing to speak their minds in SUPPORT of Pres. Trump.

As the CAIR Lefties tried to leave – smug with success – they had to walk through the WE WON, YOU LOST Patriots! Again.  (fun.)

These malcontents who masquerade as patriots, these traitors, who have snookered people like Poor William from Iran; conning them into working with organizations like CAIR (organizations that are committed to deconstructing our government,  America) They do not intend to fade away.

But, WE have met their challenge.

We will not be Silent. We TOO have NOT forgotten. WE WON. YOU LOST.

BUT- all was not over.  As I walked to the subway, about two dozen protesters marched passed me to to Tower’s entrance on Fifth Avenue, yelling anti-fascist chants.

Perhaps  now,  THIS was :

…. til NEXT TIME….

In their own words: Sarsour and Tish James – Treason or Patriotism?

July 2, 2017. July 4, Independence Day is just days away. SO, I decided to transcribe Letitia (James) and Linda (Sarsour), to throw some light on their rabble rousing  accusations. BOTH claiming to be Proud Americans. Patriots who are RECLAIMING  America. Saving our Constitution…. from those hateful, racist Republicans. Are you buying what they are selling? Maybe not, but sadly, there are buyers.

These two women, one elected to office and the other aspiring to do likewise, speak for the Progs. – not the average Americans. The Soc/Commie Bernie Sanders Left who masquerade as patriots and (of course) the MSM,  the press LOVES them. So, too, does the next Gen. Primed to resist, for the revolution.

Danger lurks in the hearts of the Millennial/Alphabet Gens that they court. Fed a steady diet of lies. propaganda. fake news. fake history . They respond passionately with cheers. smiles and fist pumping.  ready for CHANGE as they take to the streets.

I witness the same scenarios over and over nurtured at protest after protest by their Comrades-in-Arms: Insurrection. Treason.  Fed to the masses  through our media, our entertainment AND our schools. Better Red than Dead? NOT!

First up, the words of  NYC Public Advocate, Letitia James . Then Linda Sarsour, the agitators this day at the Emergency Town Hall.

Letitia A. “Tish” James is an American lawyer, activist, and politician in the Democratic Party. She is the current and fourth New York City Public Advocate and first African American woman to hold citywide office. … Howard University School of Law. … admitted to practice law in New York state in 1989. James is the first member of the Working Families Party to win office in New York State and the first third-party member to be elected to the NYC Council since 1977.

Feb.6, 2017 : Washington Sq – Flash back quotes

Tish James : ” If you honor the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, then you have an obligation. Whenever you see a government that is lawless, you’ve got an obligation  and a duty to RESIST. RESIST. RESIST.

We’ve got an obligation and a duty to fight back… to protect the marginalized community and vulnerable community … we’ve got to protect those who they are coming after.

We’ve got to stand with them. Rise them. And let them know that THIS is the America that we love and we’ll FIGHT for it.

We are a city made great by the blood, sweat and tears of immigrants and refugees. And we will not close our borders. We will not close our shores [….] ( NYC) is an immigrant town and a sanctuary city and we will protect that right.

And so we’ve gotta stand up to the Federal Government. We’ve gotta stand up to bullies. We’ve gotta stand up to an administration that is “too male, too pale and too stale”.

We will not be silent in the face of this oppression, in the face of this discrimination; in the face of HATE. We will not normalize hate.

This is MY country and I will DEFEND the rights of immigrants and refugees. Mr. President, you and your Executive Orders, you have turned back progress for decades.  That puts you on notice, we will resist and we will ultimately see you in court.

I say to Donald Trump, you are NOT my President. I will resist you and stand up to you and I know there is an ARMY out there that will join me.

I need my young people to organize and organize and organize. It is up to you, to get out in the streets, to protect your colleagues, to protect your students, your neighbor and to PROTECT your COUNTRY.” [END]

NEXT June 29, 2017 – recent quotes Letitia James – always like she was speaking to the Comintern.

“Say it Loud Say it Clear Immigrants are welcome here. Refugees are welcome here . Grandparents are welcome here . Your entire family is welcome here.

(At) JFK airport to greet immigrants who are only seeking freedom and opportunity, we can not grow tired (or weary) now. We cannot cower now. WE cannot be fearful now.

We gotta rise up and resist with every fiber of our being […] because we are in a CONSTITUTIONAL crisis. We are at WAR with ourselves. This is not America. Our Values.

On this Independence Weekend let us rise up and DEFEND the Constitution. No Wall with separate us. No Ban will stop us.

[snip]

Make sure individuals will feel welcome here. Comfort here. We will continue to embrace them.

We will continue to challenge this UN-Constitutional Ban by an illegitimate President [… ] because THIS is Democracy and THIS is what makes America great: ALL of us HERE together. (CHEERS)

I know these are very VERY troubling times. But we cannot grow weary. We cannot be afraid. Understand, we are all in this together. When they come after one group their going to come after ALL of us. So we must ALL stand together.

Say it loud say it clear that immigrants and REFUGEES are welcome here. They’re part of the HUMAN family.

This is nothing but a MUSLIM Ban. A Muslim BAN. So we need to say that MUSLIMS are Americans too and they need to be treated with respect. They need to know that the law covers them as well.

So I stand with you today. I hope to see you at the airport. As we raise our voices. As we continue to RESIST this administration [… ] and all that we stand for and all that we value.

And on the 4th – instead of going to a B-B-Q go to JFK. Instead of fireworks.Instead of taking a day off, sitting by the beach/lying in the sun: Go to JFK!  Let everyone know that we stand for something. That the Millennials – Gen  C ,  they believe in others. That it’s not about themselves. All will work together to make this a more perfect society.

What we must do together, stand up and defend America and its values. DEFEAT Islamophobia and all those who HATE people who are different. Diversity is our strength. We gotta celebrate that. Thank you for recognizing that ALL of us are Americans.

I’m a Muslim tonight. I’m Gay tonight. I’m Latino tonight.  I’m Black tonight. We are all one. No distinction. We are all one.

Let us rise up together. Let us stand together.”(CHEERS) [END]

 Letitia was followed by the keynote advocate for insurrection, Linda Sarsour.

Sarsour, in her resignation letter from her position as executive director of the Brooklyn-based Arab American Association of New York.

“We are in a critical moment as a country and I feel compelled to focus my energy on the national level and building the capacity of the progressive movement, so it is with a heavy heart that I announce that I will be leaving my post as the executive director of the Arab American Association of New York.”

Linda Sarsour was born in Brooklyn, New York[2] and is the oldest of seven children born to a pair of “Palestinian” immigrants.

 Linda Sarsour quotes from Union Square -June 29th, 2017


“I feel like I’m having the same conversation like – every week. I came here to say what I say to New Yorkers, and in any platform that I have (had?)  before the elections, THIS is NOT normal.

Remind yourselves that you live in a country with a President and an administration that is NOT normal.

This ban is a Muslim refugee ban. No other way to describe it.

As a country that passed marriage equality (sends a message) nobody gets to decide who our families are.  We get to say who our family is and what constitutes a bonafied relationship. We have people whose grandparents and aunts and uncles are their primary guardians.


When we allow the federal government to tell us who our family members are, we undermine the decades of work that people  have done in this country,
for us to define our families and what makes up the people that we love. (applause- cheers)

This ban impacts most directly the people who need us most – people who need critical medical care – who can die if they don’t come to this country and have access to the type of health care services we have.

This is a ban  that keeps out the refugees – the very people – impacted by war and conflict that WE are instigating and fueling with our tax payer dollars and WE tell them they can’t come find refuge in our country.

We should be ashamed that there are people living in refugee camps – victims of terrorism and violence.  And we are telling them that they do not belong here and can’t come into our country.  I say we have to stay loud and outraged every single day.

I am fueled my perpetual outrage at this administration.

Sisters and brothers, our country has done horrific things to many communities BEFORE Muslims.  We have a history of doing unthinkable things to communities … a precedent that our nation has set forth  for different elements of our society. I want you to join me – to be part of the NEVER AGAIN generation. I will not allow horrific things to happen to any community on my watch or on your watch.

So, there was NO partial victory. There was NO limitation to this ban. There was just a rejuvenation of what this administration tried to do from Muslim Ban 1, Muslim Ban 2.0 and now we’re at the Supreme Court.

AND for those who know the history of the Supreme Court, THEY DON’T ALWAYS DO THE RIGHT THING.

If we have any folks resigning from the Supreme Court anytime soon – guess what – on the record – and this may not be the most professional thing you ever heard me say, WE ARE SCREWED.

If we have resignations in the  Supreme Court at this moment – all of our issues – from marriage equality, voters rights, reproductive rights, abortion, to immigration, to this ban – are ALL going to be rolled back.

I want you to stay  woke. … as our black sisters and brothers teach us :  outraged . informed.”

(Woke is a slang term that is easing into the mainstream from some varieties of a dialect called African American Vernacular English (sometimes called AAVE). In AAVE, awake is often rendered as woke, as in, “I was sleeping, but now I’m woke.” ‘Woke‘ is increasingly used as a byword for social awareness.) …. arggh….

 “Most importantly, you gotta stay united because our opposition is trying to divide and conquer us on issues. And what we’re saying to them is that we are intellectual enough. Loving enough.  That we will not be divided based on the issues we are most passionate —-  that we care about.

We will be intersectional in our organizing and we will show up for one another cause that’s what we do as the American people. (CHEERS)

So…what am I asking you to do? Three things: 

1. social media
2. phone call elected officials
3. show up – public spaces presence extremely critical must be outraged on THE STREETS .  (CHEERS )

And I will end by saying this, I am a proud American and the way that I express my patriotism is through DISSENT, because dissent is the HIGHEST form of patriotism.

SO, if you LOVE your country, you fight hard to make your country the greatest nation on earth, because right now this country has a far way of going —

Until we have health care for everyone who needs health care, women have full agency of their bodies, until we have immigration reform, until we end mass incarceration and UNTIL we become a nation that welcomes ALL immigrants in this country,  until then we are NOT the greatest nation on this earth.

So – stay strong (fist held high above her head), stay united and stay organized.”  [END]

#CancelSarsour Protest a Great success, May 25th, 2017

MAY 25 , 2017
12 to  2 pm (rain or shine)

Protest  CUNY Keynote Speaker
Pro-Terror anti-Semite : Linda Sarsour

Protest terror and hate at CUNY– this will not stand.(Pamela Geller)

“The AFDI demo against CUNY’s obscene invitation to pro-terror Jew-hater Linda Sarsour to give their commencement address was a smashing success! With over a thousand people who came out in a downpour of pelting rain on East 42nd Street outside CUNY’s headquarters on to oppose the mainstreaming of evil. It was an amazing event, a turning point, despite Mayor de Blasio’s nefarious attempts to undermine and destroy the rally.” [Pamela Geller]

Pamela Geller's photo.


Speakers included:
Assemblyman Dov Hikind
Milo Yiannopoulos
Pamela Geller
Nonie Darwish, Former Muslims United
John Guandolo, Founder of UnderstandingTheThreat.com.
David Wood, Acts 17 Apologetics

MY THOUGHTS on the event. To begin – It was raining and raining and RAINING for the whole TWO Hours.  But, this did not deter anyone for showing up.

                                      [2 photos – Mike Grambush]

Even the press, eager to hear Milo speak, hung around. Milo was the keynote, so he spoke at the end. So the press WAITED. In the RAIN. As did we all.

The dedicated patriots enthusiastically jammed the protest area. Everyone hung in there – meeting the challenge of rain and the VERY obnoxious Leftist noise pollution.

  [AFDI screen shot with me in red circle]

No rain was going to stop the patriots. NOR did it stop the soc/commie/leftists. So the police line was long and tight at the stage area

                                 (3 live podcast screen shots – Tim Pool)

The ruse …. as long as passersby can move through the sidewalk …. passing their screaming gauntlet, the Soc/Commie/Lefties claim the right to STAND there, SCREAMING. Which is contrary to what we have been told in the past by the NYPD: keep moving, not standing, has been the supposed rule of law – til now.

Moving – no standing – but the lefties bully the system (always) to get their way. So rules change as they need them to change. An electic group of 20-something patriots marched back and forth in front of the Lefties, No standing around for them. [Foot Note – finally have a name for the eccentric Libertarian protestors – PROUD BOYS, a creation of Gavin McInnes]

Saw Gavin McInnes (the Proud Boy mentor) enter the stage enclosure from the crowd behind me. Wondered if he was speaking (he wasn’t listed). He was not. Just hung out at the edge of the stage.  Police didn’t like him offering a can of Pepsi to the protesting morons.

[my 2 screen shots of McInnes (with goatee) arriving and watching from side of the stage]

As for the abuses heaped upon The AFDI Speakers- by the obnoxious Left – I heard that the reason we were surrounded and drowned out by the Leftists was that the police were sued by the Commies – to be allowed to stand wherever they liked. (no idea if this is correct)

[AFDI screenshot]

Brief video of the crowd and the noise harassment. Noni Darwish was bravely speaking over the din.

Another source reported that when the police moved the Lefties away from the stage, the Commies started making phone calls. Presuming these calls went to someone in “Red Bill’s” office, since they were allowed, post-haste, and en masse a return to the staging area where they continued to relentlessly harass the speakers. (I understand the officers expressed frustration at this favoritism).

Which is why you will hear the unabated harassment heaped at these brave and dedicated speakers while they gave important and honorable speeches. I have posted videos of most of the speakers.

Pamela Geller’s opening remarks on why Linda Sarsour should not be the Key Note Speaker. “CUNY COULD have done BETTER”

Milo Yiannopoulos was the final keynote speaker

Noni Darwish gave an impassioned speech on the dangers of Sharia. She lived it and left Islam  ( which infuriates the Left) so they were particularly RUDE to her

David Wood (excerpted) is a respected scholar on Islam and Sharia spoke of the dangers of leave Islam – the sharia fatwas-  and the dangers for everyone to live – forced – under sharia.

John Guandolo – Ex FBI agent addressed the lies we in the so called (enlightened)  West are taught about Islam and Sharia. And what we can do about those lies.

Dov Hikind  (D) N.Y. State Assemblyman

Parting thoughts from Pamela Geller:

 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, Milo, 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 with 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.

On June 1, Sharia advocate Linda Sarsour will be giving the graduate commencement speech at the City University of New York. While no one who believes in freedom of speech would object to Linda’s right to speak at a university, a graduate commencement address is a completely different story. The graduate commencement speaker is chosen by the university for the students’ final “send off.” Couldn’t CUNY find someone besides a Sharia advocate to speak at a celebration for students and their families?

Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch calls on Americans to protest:

Some people are responding by insisting that Linda Sarsour should be allowed to speak on college campuses. It seems they’ve missed the point entirely. No one is saying that Linda shouldn’t be allowed to speak at CUNY. (Robert even challenges her to a debate.) The protest is about Linda being the COMMENCEMENT SPEAKER for the graduation. The commencement speaker is the university’s choice for who gives the final “send off” for the graduates. CUNY chose a Sharia proponent for the final send off. That’s what’s being protested. CUNY is trying to ram Sharia down students’ and parents’ throats.

My next report- June 1st, 2017. Many fine patriots intend to protest outside the the Apollo Theatre where the grads will assemble inside. Wonder if the patriots will be allowed ANYWHERE NEAR the entrance.  To be continued….

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.

Linda Sarsour Leads A Day Without A Woman Strike NYC

 The Anti-Trump Women’s Movement Teams Up With Islamist Terrorist  and Linda Sarsour, Islamist apologist and activist,  a supporter of shariah law. Linda was our HOST for the day at 59th st and Fifth Avenue. Noon and the sidewalks were jammed, both sides with a sea of Red and PINK. A lot of foolish women worshiping at the altar of sharia loving feminazi, Linda Sarsour. SAD.

Banner4.png

“Anti-Trump activism seems to have little to do with the political arts required to win elections — finding common ground, forging alliances, making friends. Instead all of these demonstrations are about denouncing enemies, and making yourself feel better about the November defeat by gathering publicly with those who share your rage. This sort of thinking leads to such self-defeating acts as interrupting traffic in places like New York City (where Trump got 18 percent of the vote) or San Francisco (9 percent).

If you want to persuade working-class Trump voters in Wisconsin to join your cause, annoying rich liberal Democrats trying to get to work a thousand miles away is a strange way to go about it.” [NY Post]

A second post will follow soon.

March 1st, 2017 – RAIN- and Apartheid Week 2017 at Columbia University and its vile Apartheid WALL was getting rained-out. (little pleasures) March 3 was the last day of this annual week of hate and lies and with no rain predicted the next day, I headed for Columbia.

But, now it was WIND. (What’s next frogs and locusts?) Whatever, once I arrived, I rather enjoyed the low-impact caused by this inclement weather. The Wall  of Hate  had to lay flat on the ground. The visual impact was down to zero.

short video:

Oddly, after about 20 minutes, I was quizzed by a Columbia Media Relations Rep. Where was my press permit (really?) He begrudgingly let me stay an extra 15 minutes since I explained I was “hanging, hoping the wind would abate and the wall placed upright – for a better picture. I waited 15 minutes. 1 pm arrived; gusty winds still blowing so: No “Wall”.

Really there was nothing new to see. Never is. I’ve been following the NYC Apartheid Week since 2007. Been to one Apartheid Week offensive you’ve been to them all: the anti-U.S., anti-Israel, anti-Jewish message is deeply embedded and never grows dim. The annual event has grown from 2005 to 2017. Ever stronger, they hold court, spew their litany of lies eagerly accepted as FACT. NO opposition allowed.

If ONLY we could get equal time to counter their outrageous lies. If only our truth could be heard …. by open minds.  If Only.

Joined by NYC’s hard-core Leftist politicians and union shills.

.
.
The Soc/Commie/Prog/Fascisti ranted and whined for over an hour about the need to RESIST the Trump Presidency.

RESIST. RESIST. RESIST.

Their Plan: Deconstruct American customs and laws, one fake-news protest at a time.
.
.

And the press eats it up. No Rally.  No Protest goes unnoticed.

AFDI (American Freedom Defense Initiative) has compiled video excerpts that exposes this treasonous revolt

By the time they actually started – after much waiting – Washington Square was packed.  5 pm was really just hurry up and WAIT.


We had to wait, chant, and wait some more …. while our Muslim brothers and sisters finished their Maghrib (sunset) prayers. Call a presser to coincide with their prayers; to impress the media with their faithfulness. Yeah, that’s the ticket. Spread the Prayers. Spread the Love….

Finally, Afaf Nasher, Executive Director of CAIR-NY, Muslim. hijabbed and photogenic, began to introduce the speakers.

Missing, BTW, was Linda Sarsour. Muslim. sarsour-anti-nypd-protestPhotogenic.  Sarsour led most of these protests as the hijabbed-face of Islam. Groomed for public office, but she seems to have disappeared from the forefront of this diverse and inclusive enclave.

Even so, there was no shortage of local and State government politicians, anti-Trump and in-the-pocket of the pro-Hamas “CAIR Demolition Express” . 

The short individual videos of the speakers, throws the spotlight on the outrageously predictable speeches of  NYC’s hard-core Marxist politicians. To paraphrase Sun Tzu,  another step in the “Know Thy Enemy” loop. We have ignored their agenda for too long.

To keep the American reformation from happening they “Dance with the Devil” (shaitan). Preaching to “the Oppressed”. The Good. The Needy. The “Tired and Poor”. A recipe for Deceit. Duplicity. For Treason.

Repetition is their drug of choice: “NAZI. Trump.  Fascist. Trump. Racist Trump AND Dump Trump. Dump Trump. Dump Trump.” He must be stopped. Impeach Trump! (amidst cheers, cheers. and more cheers)

The prominent agitators behind this presser/ rally/protest : CAIR / Workers Party/Communist Party/ Socialist Party. SEIU. NYCLU. The NY City Council.   All seek treasonous ways to create and maintain the disaffected masses. Their goals never change.  Agitate. Propagate. Exterminate. (rinse and repeat) Agitate. Propagate. Exterminate. (rinse and repeat ) Agitate. Propagate. Exterminate. (rinse and repeat)…. ad nauseum ….

 We are at war. Traitors from within. Temper tantrums from the Left. And the media still LOVES them.

“… a war between Davos, Conde Nast, GQ, Soros, MSNBC, Hollywood, Facebook and America. And America won.

The “resistance” is a collection of elites, from actors at award shows to fashion magazines to tech billionaires, decrying a popular revolt against their rule. They are not the resistance. They are dictators in exile. They had their chance to impose their vision on the people. And they lost.

The protests aren’t a revolution. They’re a counterrevolutionary reaction by a fallen establishment.”

The People have spoken. At the ballot box. We the Revolution!

Next day, CAIR thanked all the little people and their political sycophants on face book for joining The Resistance:

Our most sincere thanks to the thousands of New Yorkers who joined us last night to take a powerful stand against President Trump’s attacks on Muslim and immigrant New Yorkers. More than 3,000 people joined this remarkable rally, and there wasn’t a single arrest during the CAIR-NY sponsored event (though we were saddened to learn of several arrests during a later splinter demonstration).

Yesterday was the easy part, now we tackle the long, strenuous task of building the legal and advocacy capacity to fight any attack on our Muslim and undocumented neighbors. Please consider making a donation today to help cover the costs of last night’s demonstration and build CAIR-NY’s ability to advocate for all New Yorkers. We don’t receive any funding from our national organization, so CAIR-NY depends on the New York community for our financial support. http://www.cair-ny.org/donate.

Then, on January 30th, CAIR filed their Constitutional Law suit.
