May 11, 2020/ Foley Square.
Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory lead an
“ILLEGAL” protest against police brutality.
FIRST. There were the ILLEGAL arrests for peaceful assembly on Saturday, May 9, 2020, NINE patriots ARRESTED by the NYPD for peaceably walking – with American flags – outside NY City Hall. HOWEVER, Mayor “RED BILL “de Blasio has OUTLAWED our First Amendment right to peaceful assembly. So, on May the 9th, the NYPD were willing puppets – violating those CONSTITUTIONAL rights.
This isn’t Germany!” one yelled during the protest. The arrests come as Gov. Andrew Cuomo extended the state’s stay-at-home lockdown until at least June 7. According to NYPD data, 374 summons “for violations of emergency procedures and acts liable to spread disease” were issued between March 16 and May 5. [NY Post]
Two days later, it was a different game. May 11, 2020. Same Police. Same City. Same Mayor. But, the hardcore leftists, lead by Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory, FREELY assembled in Foley Square (across from the Court House).
There were many police standing (and just watching) as these outraged Marxists trashed the NYPD and challenged one of their own: Mayor “Red Bill” de Blasio.
Marching from Foley to 1 Police Plaza they were allowed to ASSEMBLE, MARCH and PROTEST. unchallenged,
NO ARRESTS. NO CEASE AND DESIST. Because Linda and Tamika called the shots. Even the mayor seems to fear the leftist mob and their new found (convenient) love of our Constitution.
NEXT, on Wednesday, May 13, at 2 pm. Patriots will attempt to exercise the same Constitutional First Amendment Rights. AGAIN. Outside City Hall. PEACEFUL ASSEMBLY.
“How much longer? New Yorkers are fed up with being kept in lock down. Unemployment is rising, businesses are shut down for miles on end, restrictions are being enforced to the point of absurdity. The longer we are kept in what appears to be a perpetual lock down, the lower our ‘herd immunity’ to other viruses and colds becomes. We become poorer and businesses will never be able to re-open. We worked with temporary restrictions. We gave up our rights temporarily to freedom of religion and assembly. We gave up our jobs & seeing our family. ENOUGH! Other states are reopening with new guidelines. There are NO valid reasons why NYC is not doing the same. It’s time to let Mayor Moron DeBlasio know that he can not take away our Constitutional rights. He can not shut the city down permanently. We must be able to return to work and businesses must be allowed to re-open with guidelines. We must be able to return to our houses of worship. Opening a few streets for NYC residents to walk up and down like zombies is not the answer. “
April 8, 2020. Before The China Virus exploded across the world, there was “Linda Sarsour: We Are Not Here to Be Bystanders” . Her book signing held at NYC’s famous Strand Book Store on March 11, 2020.
FLASHBACK: Linda Sarsour @lsarsour
My book comes out TODAY, on #SuperTuesday of course. Never thought I would ever type these words. It’s the right book at the right time. Get your copy today OR post the one you receive with hashtag #NotABystander. #NotMeUs
However, this “Right Time” book signing (on the 11th) was also protested by Yad Yamin-NY. It was NOT the “Right Time”.
“Why, protest some might ask?” Well, to begin, Sarsour is an infamous Jew-Hater. Also, she supports Sharia Law and has gone on-record supporting the elimination of Israel. (There’s more) She has promoted Jihad and embraced terrorist Rasmeah Odeh.”
Yad Yamin decided they TOO were not to be BYSTANDERS, so on March 11 a call went out to :
“Jew hater, lyin’ Linda Sarsour, will be at Strand Book Store to promote her autobiography. If we didn’t know any better, by reading lyin’Linda’s promotion written by Strand Bookstore, we’d think that lyin’ Linda should get a humanitarian award. We know better. Time to fight back! No time for silence!“
But, then, in the blink of an eye, everything changed.
March 12-13, 2020 : the NY City /State government shut the city down, making this post an after thought. The pandemic media-mania overwhelmed the NYC business community. With no income, rents can’t be paid. Employees are laid off. Recovery, for many, a very slim possibility.
We were silenced. Unwilling participants in the pandemic confusion. However, Linda did manage to find a pandemic connection so she could promote Islam:
Linda Sarsour @lsarsour – March 20, 2020
I am watching ‘Pandemic’ on Netflix and finding it very informative and grounding. Highly recommend. I am also appreciating that the leading health figure in NYC on pandemics is a brilliant Muslim doctor named Dr. Syra Madad who is featured in this series.
Meanwhile, our protest. Better late than never is here . On You tube
Finally, some light reading: The Press Release for Sarsour’s book promotion. (hurl alert)
Wednesday March 11: 7:00PM – 8:00PM
Buy a copy of We Are Not Here to be Bystanders or a $15 gift card to attend. This event will take place in our 3rd floor Rare Book Room. Linda Sarsour, co-organizer of the Women’s March, shares how growing up Palestinian Muslim American, feminist, and empowered her, moved her to become a globally recognized activist on behalf of marginalized communities across the country.
“On a chilly spring morning in Brooklyn, nineteen-year-old Linda Sarsour stared at her reflection, dressed in a hijab for the first time. She saw in the mirror the woman she was growing to be—a young Muslim American woman unapologetic in her faith and her activism, who would discover her innate sense of justice in the aftermath of 9/11. Now heralded for her award-winning leadership of the Women’s March on Washington, in We Are Not Here to Be Bystanders Linda Sarsour offers a poignant story of community and family.
From the Brooklyn bodega her father owned, where Linda learned the real meaning of intersectionality, to protests in the streets of Washington, DC, Linda’s experience as a daughter of Palestinian immigrants is a moving portrayal of what it means to find one’s voice and use it for the good of others.
We follow Linda as she learns the tenets of successful community organizing, and through decades of fighting for racial, economic, gender, and social justice as she becomes one of the most recognized activists in the nation. Throughout, she inspires readers to take action as she reaffirms that we are not here to be bystanders.”
In his foreword to the book, Harry Belafonte writes of Linda, “While we may not have made it to the Promised Land, my peers and I, my brothers and sisters in liberation can rest easy that the future is in the hands of leaders like Linda Sarsour. I have often said to Linda that she embodies the principle and purpose of another great Muslim leader, brother Malcolm X.”
This is her story…
Ending with her GLOWING Press Bio:
“Linda Sarsour is an award-winning civil rights activist, community organizer, and mother of three. A Palestinian Muslim American born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, she is the former executive director of the Arab American Association of New York and the co-founder of the first Muslim online organizing platform, MPower Change. She is also a founding member of Justice League NYC, a leading force of activists, artists, youth, and formerly incarcerated individuals committed to criminal justice reform through direct action and policy advocacy.
Sarsour served as national co-chair of the largest single day protest in US history, the Women’s March on Washington. Named among 500 of the most influential Muslims in the world, she was also cited as one of Fortune’s 50 Greatest Leaders, and featured as one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world in 2017. She has won numerous awards for her activism, including a Champion of Change award from the Obama Administration. She is a frequent media commentator on issues that affect Muslim communities, Middle East affairs, and criminal justice reform. She is most recognized for her transformative intersectional organizing work and movement building.“
We return to the present: April 8, 2020 where New York City is “On Pause” … still ….

January 9, 2020. 5 p.m, Columbus Circle (and 6 pm Foley Square). The anti-war “majority” in this country made last minute plans to “get visible” to oppose “Trump’s War” and say #NoWarWithIran. “We will not be forced into another war”.
At 5 pm: “We will protest outside of Columbus Circle and make our way through the streets and to Trump Tower. Do not miss an opportunity to change the course of history. New York says#NoWarWithIran!”
But, having two locations and two start times, was confusing. The Columbus Circle location had a lame turn out …
So, at 5:15, a few of us headed down to Foley Sq. instead. where
“Iranian-Americans, Muslims, and communities of color stand against endless wars, going to war with Iran, sanctions and the dehumanization of our communities.
Some claimed the turnout to be around 1500-2000. It was a large gathering but perhaps not 2000.
” In the wake of the Trump administration’s reckless assassination of Iranian General Soleimani, and threats to escalate conflict, activists will urge restraint and that the United States avoid yet another unnecessary, costly war of choice in the Middle East.” Foley Square hosted by Faiza N. Ali and Manijeh Nasrabadi.

This is part of nationwide events organized by Move On, Win Without War and NIAC. Each city has local organizers taking the mantle : nowarwithiran.org
We demand no war with Iran. We demand de-escalation.
We demand peace.
But, what is REALLY happening in the streets of IRAN. It’s NOT what the Soc/Commies “Working Families” pretend. The People of Iran are saying otherwise. Why do the anarchists refuse to see the suffering caused by the Soleimanis and Imans?
“What began as vigils for the students killed when Iran’s Revolutionary Guard mistakenly shot down an airliner turned into large anti-government protests Saturday, with thousands of students chanting “Death to Liars!” and calling for the resignation of the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. “F–k you & your mistake!”[NY Post]
Vigils erupted into anti-government protests at Iranian universities. The women of Iran are not THANKFUL to be forced into hijabs and burkas, as this Olympian defector bravely states on Jan 12,2020:
“I wore whatever they told me and repeated whatever they ordered. Every sentence they ordered I repeated,” she wrote, angry at being ordered to wear the mandatory hijab headscarf.“None of us matter for them, we are just tools.” [NY Post]
Unfortunately, the IMAGINE feminist-fools think they know best. They can IMAGINE Peace:
No More War 2020. Raha Iranian Feminist Collective is a New York City-based group of Iranian and Iranian-American women working toward gender and sexual justice and opposed to militarism and imperialism. [Raha]
Imagine all the foreign powers go home, sanctions are lifted, resources flourish, and activists from Tehran to Baghdad to Washington, DC to Damascus are free to organize on our own terms for a society that recognizes and respects life, history, and possibility. [Face Book]
Linda Sarsour: CLUELESS :
“The Chicken Littles got everything wrong on Trump and Iran”
Soleimani, who was revered at home as a masterful military leader but despised internationally as a terrorist responsible for Iran’s bloody proxy wars. (WAS DEAD!)
If you went to bed early Tuesday, you were surprised to wake up Wednesday and learn that World War III has been delayed. No doubt you were also shocked that Iran blinked, oil prices were tumbling and the stock market was soaring.
Once again, the Chicken Little chorus got everything all wrong. The sky isn’t falling and Donald Trump pulled off a huge victory. Oh, and he’s still president. [Michael Goodwin]
BUT, you wouldn’t know this listening to the NO WAR WITH IRAN Leftists ranting in Foley Square this night. Some of whom are active in NYC political circles. Some are Iranian. Some, Vets. And two make claims at being Fakestinians: Linda Sarsour most infamously. The Soc/Commie/Progs shilling for the Soros killing-machine.
And then, there’s Mdm. PELOSI, insisting her measure has “real teeth” because she said the War Powers Act of 1973 gives it the force of law. Claiming it is also “a statement of the Congress of the United States”. Others say, probably more correctly, “.… Democrats are pulling off a toothless political stunt.” Yet, the MEDIA LOVES them.

Dec. 31, 2019. Solidarity rallies are all the rage – for now.
However, anyone who thinks the Left is suddenly ‘woke’ in solidarity, doesn’t understand the soc/commie/progs. As we found out this particular evening at Grand Army Plaza:It’s their way or no way.
Teaching prejudice and hate in our schools (like the very “progressive” Beacon HS in Manhattan) and our colleges (like NYU and Columbia with active MSA’s) ; unforgiving in their animus towards Israel (aka the Jews). They control the message, repeated by the media, shared in the “prog”synagogues and leftie churches: BDS good;Israel bad.
Some of our very leftist politicians and “rad” black leaders, anti-Semites Louis Farrakhan and the Rev Al Sharpton, join together under the pretense of solidarity. Jumanne Williams, Brad Lander pretend to encourage dialogue (but, not really) as this citizen discovered when he asked to mingle with his hand-out. He was told: No.
Public Advocate, Jumaane Williams, said of solidarity, “If they separate us, they will win. They will not separate us in Brooklyn. They will not separate us in New York City.” “They” apparently refers to the “orange Man in the White House”, mentioned as he wrapped up his speech.
So much for SOLIDARITY and can’t we all get along. The LEADERS of these FAUX solidarity rallies do not allow the free-exchange of ideas. Their hard “facts”: Good people on the Left. Bad people on the Right controls everyone, including the police.
Which brings us to Dec. 31, 2019. The last rally of the year hosted by the local Soc/Commie/Prog orgs led by known anti-Semite, LINDA SARSOUR.
Sarsour said, “When a community is being attacked, it is our duty and responsibility as neighbors to stand together and SAY NO, THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE. Safety is in our solidarity.” More importantly, she also said, “Nothing is creepier than Zionism. Jews are the enemy of the people”
Linda spent a great deal of time on her cell-phone (emblazoned with a “fakestinan” flag sticker).
She was clearly in-charge (despite her disclaimer) and only ‘moved-on” once she got results: sound, speakers where SHE wanted them and the opposition, isolated. They were NOT united with, nor welcoming of those deemed unacceptable (meaning those they labeled Jewish racist,nazis).
Yad Yamin and AFSI, two of the groups that tried to join the solidarity event, were isolated at the request of Sarsour. Placed in a pen so they could not engage with anyone.
The ability to mix and express concern with the rally’s misleading message, promoted by known anti-Semites, CAIR and Linda Sarsour, was denied: Free Speech was in a pen.
With “good intentions”, in pursuit of solidarity, it’s a propaganda battle difficult to win since so many ‘nice people’ are not able to recognize the prejudice motivating the Left.
VIDEO: “Jews against Racism”. You had to be of the LEFT persuasion, otherwise you were ostracized and NOT allowed to stand in solidarity.
VIDEO : A solidarity” rally with hostility towards the non- progs who came to question their known anti-Zionism aka anti-Semitism. Racists like Tamika Mallory (Mallory attended a Nation of Islam event at which black nationalist Louis Farrakhan made incendiary remarks about Jews) was there . Promoting togetherness? NOT.
VIDEO: They eventually created a tight circle around speakers who preached to their own with agitprop speeches. First speaker was the Rev. Kirsten John Foy, who spoke in 2015 at Louis Farrakhan’s Justice Or Else Rally (also formerly with anti-semite, Al Sharpton’s NAN- The National Action Network) . “In our unity, we will find our strength. Let there be peace. Salaam. Shalom.” Gotta ask, with that resume, “Unity of what; with whom?”
VIDEO:Barely Informed with Elad, while attempting to grab some interviews, was harassed – as usual – by the very racist, marxist/socialist, Andy Ratto (Rise and Resist). As his actions reveal, Andy does not embrace free speech. Ratto proudly supports censorship.
Ratto, also, claims that “NYC Rejects Racism and Fascism”. But, hypocrites like Ratto and Sarsour don’t represent NYC and don’t get called out by the complicit press. Solidarity? Be afraid, be very afraid.

How can we “unite” with Jew Haters?
“When you call for the elimination of the Jewish homeland, you call for the elimination of Jews. This must be addressed. Their goals are not ours.’Lyin Linda’s’ hateful anti-Israel agenda adds fuel to the fire of Jew-hared that is spreading across the United States.” (Yad Yamin)
We need to call them out!

. Excerpt from Pinko video (war parody song) They were particularly upset about the war in Yemen.
.“Join with CODE PINK to tell Lush Cosmetics it’s time to close its stores in Saudi Arabia. Lush markets continues to operate in Saudi Arabia, thus participating in the brutal regime’s campaign to whitewash its human rights abuses … it’s time to get out of Saudi Arabia!” [Face Book]
Yes, the Saudi’s are breeding terrorists. Yet, the unfortunately passive approach our government (no matter the party) has taken regarding business with the Saudi Kings has been exposed as seriously flawed by the Pinkos – of all people. Their aversion to doing business with the Saudis made sense.
Questioning the U.S. / Saudi relationship as we continue a program with foreign trainees at our military bases, and since the Saudis export Wahabi-ism, to re-evaluate this folly makes sense. (If only…)
Observed the police making a top-down decision from the Mayor (perhaps) to be “hands-off the Pinkos” – as they set up their signs on the store’s private property. (leaning them against the building) while three Pinkos sang mock Christmas carols demanding that LUSH close their stores in Saudi Arabia. (eventually moving inside the store – singing)
In the video the Pinkos posted, the officers seemed surprised; odd, since everyone knew this was coming.
Once inside, the police remained passive as the pinko ladies “took a meeting” with the store manager. They talked and talked and talked about the Saudis and Yemen and why LUSH should close its stores. Then, after about 6-7 minutes the very patient manager finally said good-bye. The ladies left, doing the SLOW- exit crawl, as they SANG another obnoxious parody. For them – this was a success.
Flickr slide show: pics with short video outside LUSH cosmetics NYC store on 34 st.
In conclusion: The“Out of Saudi” Action made sense on both sides. Since we are training their terrorists to kill our citizens -on OUR soil, why do business with them?
It’s an Upside/Down World when we have something in common with the Code Pinkos. What’s next? Perhaps our government should stop training their terrorists.
The New York City local chapter of CODE PINK: Women for Peace, is a women-led grassroots organization working to end U.S. wars and militarism, support peace and human rights initiatives and redirect our tax dollars into healthcare, education, green jobs and other life-affirming programs.
[But, since their allegiance is to Communism – go figure HOW they will manage all this]
Lush Cosmetics is one of the world’s most socially conscious businesses … a portion of their profits goes to support wonderful projects such as animal protection, regenerative farming and even freedom and dignity for Palestinians. That’s why it was so shocking to learn that Lush operates three stores in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia!
BUT, never forget who the very Red Code Pinkos really are.
As they address the attack on the Monsey synagogue, who do you think they make responsible?
“Love and prayers are not enough. CODE PINK calls on all people to take action to stem the tide of growing fascism and racism in this country and across the world. Although the Monsey attack was perpetrated by one man alone, his actions are part of a sharp rise in antisemitism that has been encouraged and perpetrated by Donald Trump.“
And TOMORROW, in Brooklyn, the very Anti-Jewish Linda Sarsour is holding a smoke-screen rally; pretending to care. We will be there to COUNTER her LIES.

January 19, 2019. NYC. Two opposing “Women’s March” rallies were scheduled. This was the UNITY rally lead by extreme leftists; progs, socialists, racists and anti-Semites. They gathered in Foley Square to denounce all things “Trump”; while proclaiming to the world that only they represent “true diversity and unity“.
The JDL-NY counter-protestors loudly denounced the racism and hatred that was spewed from the stage, boldly challenging the do-gooder fraud of diversity and unity.
“About a half-dozen counter-protesters stood across the street and screamed “Jew haters!” and held signs saying “The Farrakhan March.” [NY Post]
Agunda Okeyo , the director of Women’s March NYC, a Pan-African New Yorker was the first speaker. #WomensWaveNYC “We applaud her for leading the charge!”
We applaud Laura Loomer who appeared on-stage as Okeyo began reading a list of names. Loomer looked at first like any photographer taking a crowd-shot. [so I looked down – doh!] I failed to catch Laura as she began to shout at the crowd.
“Keynote speaker and filmmaker Agunda Okeyo was interrupted when right-wing activist Laura Loomer, who is Jewish, crashed the stage and tried to commandeer the mic, shouting, “What about the Jews?” “The women’s march hates Jews!” she shouted repeatedly. “Linda Sarsour’s a Jew hater! Tamika Mallory’s a Jew Hater!” she hollered as she was led away by security. “I thought Jewish women were invited! I came to your party!” [NY Post]
Of course, the anti-Jewish women’s march wouldn’t be complete without anti-Semites traitors like Jewish Voice for Peace.— See [Facebook] and [Face book]
“Join the Jewish Contingent for the Women’s Unity Rally hosted by Jewish Voice for Peace-New York City. We will rally against racism, misogyny, Islamophobia, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, colonialism, and violence. We will fight for the empowerment of women and girls, immigrants’ rights, LGBTQI equality, and Palestinian liberation. Join this contingent of inter-generational, diverse, loud, progressive, Jewish New Yorkers”
JDL – NY was there to EDUCATE the passersby with NEVER AGAIN; challenging the hypocrites at JVP who support BDS. [Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions]
The Jewish Voice For Peace “progressives” continue with: “We stand against … the false accusations of anti-Semitism so often used to divide us as women, Jews, and activists for transformational justice. We will stand together against rising fascism and we will create a more just world with safety and liberation for all.” [JVP Face Book]
They met to share songs and prayers for Shabbat, at 9:30 am that morning, led by Rabbi Ellen Lippmann, Rabbi Amichai Lau Lavie, and Rabbinic Student Mackenzie Reynolds before the rally began at 10:00am.

++ Over and over we were told, the “Women’s March NYC, is a group led by women of color activists and their allies from across New York; celebrating the progress we’ve made over the last two years and the work that lies ahead.”
“In response to the Trump Administration’s continued assault on immigrant communities and communities of color, the march includes a coalition of grassroots & labor orgs who celebrate ALL women!” [Action Network]
“The Women’s March Movement” claims they were born out of frustration over Trump’s 2016 election.” I guess they were. But, YOU LOST, so GET OVER IT!
Commie-Babe, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, spoke after I left. No matter, who ever speaks and wherever they speak, they all belly-ache the same tropes over and over: Trumpers and Repubs are BAD.
Repetition is their friend. Conning the people through the ages. Breeding ignorance that continues to destroy generations.

Giddy while promoting genocide.

Tuesday, June 26, 2018. Foley Square. NYC. 6 PM. A day of OUTRAGE ! as the U.S. Supreme Court voted 5-4 to uphold the Trump administration’s travel ban, which blocks immigrants from several Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S.
“The presidential order proclaiming the travel ban, which took effect in December after two broader iterations were blocked by lower courts, applies with varying degrees of severity to seven countries — five with Muslim majorities : Libya, Iran, Somalia, Syria and Yemen — plus North Korea and Venezuela.”NY Times
The Soc/Commie/Prog/Lib/Facisti burst upon Foley Square. Muslims, the naive Left and Communist led unions fed the eager media with the usual agitprop that anything Republican and/or Trump is of the DEVIL.
Front Page Mag addresses their partisan lies: “We are all immigrants’ is a half-truth at best, and a banal historical fact that doesn’t distinguish between legal and illegal immigration, a bipartisan bad habit meant to distract voters from the failures of our indiscriminate immigration laws and policies.
Correcting these dysfunctions caused by our porous border is a separate issue from how we decide whom we should allow in through a legal process.”
“Hundreds (of ignorati ) gathered in Foley Square, in New York City, to protest the decision [… ] SCOTUS voted to uphold President Trump’s third travel ban on predominantly Muslim countries, writing that the president has the right to “suspend entry of aliens into the United States.“
OUTRAGE as the Workers Unite!
A few speakers acted surprised at how quickly this protest came together. Point of fact: this protest was On-Call, waiting for the Supreme court ruling.
Once the decision was in. The protest was ON.
Hundreds of the Hard Left gathered “in love, not hate”. The loving sign below translated, “Trump you are asshole”.
When it comes to the unions, they too opposed all things Trump.
“The Supreme Court has ruled in favor of Trump’s racist Muslim Ban, so it is time to take to the streets. Please join us in Foley Square at 6PM to say #NoMuslimBanEver. It’s crucial that we (the unions) have a visible, strong presence across the country of people who care about Muslim and refugee communities and oppose Trump’s White Nationalist agenda.
Flickr slide show of both sides:
The First Lady, Melania Trump-meme was mocked by a couple of women.
Saw ex- NYC Councilman, Robert Jackson, who at a previous NYC Muslim Day Parade, proclaimed Harlem to be the New Mecca. Jackson joined the crowd – unnoticed- except for his very BOLD t-shirt, “Many talk the talk, Robert Jackson walks, the walk.” Guess he’s still running for office.
“Sisters and Brothers, I’m here today as a proud New Yorker and an unapologetic Muslim. (cheers) I don’t give a damn who’s sitting in the Supreme Court, I know that this country is open to ALL people and MUSLIMS were here before this country was called the United States of America. (cheers) I don’t give a damn what the Supreme Court says is legal, because they said slavery was legal; segregation was legal; the internment of Japanese-Americans was legal. Just because something is deemed legal does not make it moral or just. (huge cheers) This administration has made it a policy to separate black and brown families. Whether it be on our Southern border or through the illegal, unconstitutional Muslim-ban, they are breaking up the fabrics of our communities.
Just last night I was at La Guardia airport and I recorded CHILDREN, kidnapped in the night from Texas (who were BORN here) to be put in shelters and to potentially the foster care and never reunited with their families. (crowd JEERS) I don’t wanta know who you would have been at the time of Japanese internment, or at the time when we refused Jewish refugees, or at the time when we deported over two million Mexico (sic); when the border never crossed them. Right? The border never crossed them, we crossed their country.
Who would you have been at the time of the civil rights movement. I’m asking you, “Who are you right now?” (odd cheers) If it is not clear to you, it is VERY clear to me.
This administration has a White, Nationalist, Supremacist agenda and they are implementing point after point.
The Resistance has momentum. But the bottom line is that they are winning. And every day they keep their promises to their base, who oppose our values and principles and OUR intentions of democracy, and equality and diversity in these United States of America.[2:40]
So, I’m telling you today: Wake Up! WE ARE LIVING UNDER FASCISM. This is Fascism! (cheers)
I don’t believe that we will liberate our communities though the ballot-box. But, what I do believe is that we can stop the hemorrhaging 0n (sic) our communities. That we can stop the bleeding and create some checks and balances. So, I’m asking you to continue to show up and show public dissent, cause dissent is the HIGHEST form of patriotism. (huge cheers) Show up. Show up. Show up cause we are NOT tired and we will NEVER be tired; and continue to fight for justice for our beloved communities.
I also want you to take yourselves to the polls. (cheers) Sisters and Brothers, no more self-righteous (? apologies)[3:42] There are communities that are suffering because we can’t pass ONE BILL through this congress. Congress has an opportunity to act, and I’m telling you, there’s a lot of people on the roster.
Go to those polls. Put forth your principles and values and let’s show them what we’re made of. Because, it’s not that we need to win, we HAVE to win! We MUST win! People are counting on us every day. (cheers) [4:08]
You can always count. on. me. To stand with any community who demands justice. And I do not care about the consequences of what it means to stand up for justice, just like our ancestors before us, they didn’t care. They went to jail. They were spied on by the U.S. government. They were vilified in the media. But, all of that doesn’t matter because OUR communities are worth it. Our children are worth it. Our families are worth it. (cheers)
Stay loud. Stay consistent. They are counting on you getting tired. They’re (?) [4:57] on you saying this is how it is. We have no power.
Sisters and Brothers, we have power. They are afraid of our power and it’s time for you to SHOW that power. (cheers begin and carry on as she continues)Take yourself to the polls. Continue to build (faith?) [5:13] Support immigrant and black life organizations and let’s show this administration what we are made of. (HUGE cheers)” [5:20]

As she spoke to the adoring crowd, Almontaser held her granddaughter Sophie, a second generation American.
In the video, I caught the end of her speech as she mentions her grand-daughter’s sticker, “Nobody is Illegal“. (21:26)
Almontaser TEXT: (she loves her sticker) “Even Sophie gets it. If the Supreme Court didn’t get it, Sophie got it and we all got it out here. We all got it out here. And so I thank you my sisters and brothers. Do not despair. Get ready. Get the pair of nicest comfortable shoes you have, because we are going to be out every day, every week, every month and every year until we get this administration out of office. (cheers) I am making one promise, and I know that the Yemini-American community will help in delivering this, we are going to register every Yemini-American member in the United States and in New York City to make sure that we get this President out. (big cheers) And so I wanta end with one special chant that my Yemini-American community loves. (to the crowd) Where are you Yemini-Americans, raise your voice. (cheers) Where are you? The one chant that they love most, and that is U.S.A. When I first heard it at the bodega strike, I was like,”What kind of chant is this?” And then, when they explained to me what it meant, they are RECLAIMING their land. Because they have worked, and they are part of the American fabric and each and every one of us is a part of the American fabric, and Trump will NOT dictate who this America is. Cause WE are. (cheers)
Letitia “Tish” James (NYC Public Advocate) has shown repeated disrespect for our country – and our laws- in speech after speech that I have witnessed and recorded.
Yet, she’s favored to be the next New York ATTORNEY GENERAL … with allegiances to her Working Families Party (aka Commies). Please. NO.
“Tish” tweeted later: [https://twitter.com/TishJames] “I need your help in the fight against Donald Trump and his attacks on the rights of all New Yorkers – will you join my historic campaign for Attorney General today and chip in with a small donation? Every $ countsbit.ly/2tvfUav”
Text Letitia’s speech: Say it loud, say it clear, immigrants are welcome here. (crowd repeats) This ban will not make us any safer. This ban will only hurt us. This ban, unfortunately, will impact our standing globally. And so this decision was nothing more than a racist decision. A decision that, unfortunately, is gonna continue to promulgate and promote discrimination in our nation. This is NOT who we are! (cheers, applause and “whoos”) And so we want to say to all of you, that it’s critically important that we all understand that this was a result of the fact that they STOLE the Supreme Court seat. (crowd uproar) An illegitimate President and an illegitimate member of the Supreme Court, PERIOD. (crowd applause) And so it’s important that all of us, all of us be involved in the electoral process and that we take back our government, our country for those who believe that there are those who, unfortunately, want to separate us. It’s really critically important that we rise and we stand together and that we use our voices and that ALL of us come together and recognize that this is not America. And that this decision is inconsistent with our values and our principles AND with our constitution. So we gotta stand tall today and let the country know, the world know, that WE believe in a country where our borders are open. And that we welcome all individuals … (cheers,applause) and diversity is our strength and not a liability. (cheers, applause continues) And we wanta show the occupants, the residents at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue .… (crowd starts boos) BOO…. that Muslims aren’t the problem. What is the problem? HATE is the problem. And we want to send the message of love and compassion. And we want to send a message that this Do-Nothing Republican-led Congress, they need to get steel in their backs, they need to stand up and make sure we have an immigration policy in this country that welcomes all and that understands and appreciates our values. And so I say to you today, don’t give up, don’t be (sic) don’t get despair, don’t despair. We’ve gotta come together as we did today, as we stand together after this ban. [[and we’ve gotta show individuals that we will stand with Muslims, with immigrants, and we will stand with Americans to defend our values and our principles….. let’s continue to raise our voices. No Justice, No Peace (crowd repeats chant)
At the end of the Letitia clip, a Leftard Safety Patrol female attempted to control, aka censor, Univision 41 as they prepared to film the counter-protest.
She repeated (referring to the counter protestors) “ … they don’t represent us … we are asking that you focus over there.”
The Univision reporter stood his ground as he gestured to both groups and then … despite her “plea” … proceeded to interview the counter-protestors.
As I left crowd behind, I passed a public trash can already sporting the tossed meme of the day (AND some predictable reading material illuminating their intentions). Patriotism was NOT their meme …. of the day.
FYI- once again- another VERY long list of sponsors and participants.

“We’re standing in solidarity with communities across the country hosting #iftarinthestreets! Muslims and allies will gather and break fast in support for immigrant communities who are under attack … outside ICE headquarters, at Foley Square … #iftarinthestreets for Immigrant Justice!” [Face Book]
Ramadan, when Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset to please Allah, is considered their holiest month. Many non-Muslims are often invited to fast and even pray with their Muslim friends and also to share the IFTAR dinner.
Ramadan. Iftar. A dawah opportunity on the Road to One World Under Islam, the Umma.
This representative from JFREJ, decided to ask questions of the New JDL-NY.
… looking for “Common Ground” …
The New JDL-NY listened politely, but gave no quarter to the ignorance of these misguided leftist Jews, to the JFREJ and JVP who were dedicated to showing the world how to live in peace with their Muslim Sisters and Brothers.
These do-gooder non-Muslims encourage others “…. to be polite to someone who is fasting for Ramadan … greet them with Ramadan Mubarak or Ramadan Kareem, which means ‘Have a Blessed or Generous Ramadan’.” [Huff Po]
BUT, is this special time of year really genuinely welcoming the kafir?
“Ramadan is quintessentially the month of jihad …. a month of holy war and death for Allah, a month for fighting the enemies of Allah and God’s messenger, the Jews and their American facilitators.
In contrast, President Trump issued (sadly) a statement claiming that “Ramadan reminds us of the richness Muslims add to the religious tapestry of American life.”
So which is it? Does Ramadan remind us of “the richness Muslims add to the religious tapestry of American life,” or is Ramadan “a month of calamity everywhere for nonbelievers”?
Saw Raja Abdulhaq [Abulhaq is an active member of Al-Awda, a radical anti-Israel website that rallies for the “Right of Return,” otherwise known as the “One State Solution“]. City Councilman Brad Lander and Linda Sarsour, darling of CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood, and MpowerChange. Peaceful?
… it would be dangerous, suicidal folly for Infidels to pretend that Ramadan is not the month of jihad …. as our Ramadan willful blindness continues, more Infidels will die. (LINK BELGIUM]

** The NYPD Community Affairs officer was apparently in the pocket of the IFTAR organizers. In the name of “peace”, and at the behest of the IFTAR event, he denied Freedom of Speech to the JDL protestors.
His reasoning? The “Iftarists” had the sound permit [which only means the opposition – JDL- cannot be amplified, NOT that they can not be heard.]
But, today he created a new rule. Just for the JDL. The Community Affairs Officer warned the New JDL protestors not to make a sound while Sarsour was speaking (on mic) OR they would be removed from this public park.
See video of Sarsour, a supposed champion of women’s rights, as she inspired those present with her fiery Ramadan thoughts. (Ramadan is her FAVORITE time of year- Jihad anyone?)
Sarsour quotes: “This is the Blessed month of Ramadan, some of our friends have fasted in solidarity with us, a lot of our Christian and Jewish friends …. we got allies and friends and solidarity…. times we’ve shared in the movement. I wanta give a shout out to our friends at FRJEJ. Before it was COOL to stand with the Muslims, these Jewish groups were standing with the Muslims .We are so great ful for you … and we will show up for you any time that you need us. We are all in this together. We are going to FIGHT this together. Because the opposition doesn’t like any of you here. They don’t like women, they don’t like Muslims, they don’t like Jews, they don’t like immigrants, they don’t like refugees, they don’t like black people, they don’t like LGBTQ people. We’re all in the same boat together. If our opposition is treating us like we’re part of one movement … we gotta start acting like ONE movement. We thank you for your continued solidarity on the issues … impacting Muslims and ALL marginalized communities in these United States of America.”(cheers/applause)
As for the muzzling of the NEW JDL-NY, such actions are never imposed on the Muslim/Leftist protestors.
See more in video and follow link to the Pamela Geller CUNY protestopposing Sarsour as the Key Note Speaker for CUNY’s 2017 grads on May 25, 2017:
Something was very rotten in the City of New York that day (and every day really). Respectful silence was not on the agenda. The NOISE makers persisted, unabated, overwhelming the amplified sound. The NYPD just watched allowing the Leftards to create a hell of a NOISE.
… there’s no free speech to the right. Only the left. The only controversial speech the left believes in protecting is its own speech. [DGreenfield]
Washington Square, December 7, 2017. 5 pm. On this coldish December night, Sharia-Loving Linda Sarsour led a rally against the Muslim Ban, Tax Scam and to fight for DREAM Act, with her oft repeated phrase: she is OUTRAGED.
Whose rage? The Port Authority Bomber? 4 days later, he speaks to President Trump of rage, “O AMERICA, DIE IN YOUR RAGE.”
Or Linda Sarsour’s OUTRAGE. December 7th, A Day that should Live in Infamy goes unmentioned as Sarsour rails on, “Outraged.’ She has so much rage in her body.
Linda shills for Sharia (and Islam) with veiled threats, deflecting scrutiny by saying we should not let FEAR lead us. (SHE is PEACE) “Islam is Good. Capitalism BAD and RAGE was the color of the day.”
BUT, from those who have seen the future under Sharia-Islam, we have been warned. The threats are real. America, we should be VERY afraid.
A 9 minute video of Sarsour preaching her party line to recruit the naive and inspire her complicit followers, with transcribed excerpts of Sarsour’s remarks.
A brief on-camera interview, over heard:
“Message for Trump administration, ‘We’re gonna stay organized. We’re gonna fight back … I believe in my generation. We’re not gonna sit back.‘ (In 2018 we’ll take out any politician. We’re gonna fight back.)”
Excerpts from her full ‘ya’ll’ speech:
“My body is full of rage. I have so much rage in my body. I hope you are all just as outraged as I am […] I am ashamed. As an American […]…the GOP tax-scam, it’s not a Bill it’s a SCAM
(re D.C. protest) Sisters and Brothers … arresting people with disabilities, with terminal diseases. We should be ashamed in this country that there could people that could die on our watch just because they don’t have access to health care.
We have an administration putting forth a WHITE SUPREMACIST agenda on OUR watch. Be outraged, my sisters and brothers.
This week (re the Supreme Court) I don’t care what religion you are, y’all gotta pray for RUTH. Ruth’s gotta be alive for a really long time (still in her good ol’ boy accent)
(refers to) BANNED people from six Muslim majority countries. (refers to 1939 FDR – turning away ship with European refugee Jews) Dark Days in the United States of America.
Today, in Yemen, Saudi-led U.S. supported WAR, people (are) crippled by a war. Looking for safety. security. to re-unite with their families.
Outrageous, Sisters and Brothers. We cannot be the generation that takes our country back 50 years.
Sisters and Brothers, FEAR is a choice.They are using fear-politics to divide us. We will NOT choose fear. We will choose solidarity, and unity, and resistance to this WHITE Supremacist administration. [5:00]
They are trying to exhaust us, this Fascist administration; to distract us from what they are really doing; the political corruption; the ill-informed decisions, the nepotism. But, we are NOT distracted. We know exactly what is going on.
We are people that are compassionate, that have open-hearts and minds. We love ALL people. When we say justice, we say “justice for ALL people”. [7:00]
You are hope. We are hope. NYC is HOPE.
I am perpetually outraged every morning. I will continue to be outraged until every single human being that lives in our country is treated with dignity and respect….and we have a government who aligns with our value system and our principles of democracy and freedom and liberation and justice for all; ALL people. [8:00]
Dissent is the highest form of patriotism and a true patriot who loves their country will not settle for a White Supremacist in the White House; for a sexual predator in the White House; for anti-Semites in the White House or Islamophobes in the White House; Xenophobes in the White House.
We, as Americans, will not settle and we will fight until we have a administration that reflects our values and our TRUE principles. [9:00] END video
What a piece of work. Sarsour jumps back and forth from her Brooklyn accent to her ‘good ol boy- y’alls. (Makes me think of the Hilda-beast and her “you know what I’m talkin’ about'” charade.) Pathetic fools, they LOVE Sarsour like they LOVED Hillary.
See Flickr slide show of Linda’s minions: the Workers Party, Workman’s Circle and Socialist Party recruiters, and their many signs …
… BOLDLY countered by the JDL pro -Israel, anti-illegal migration patriots.

Addendum: December 11, 2017 follow up on the latest Muslim Jihadi suicide bomber OUTRAGE ; allowed to live in Manhattan, un-vetted; admitted through chain-migration .
“… the NYPD faces a brutal challenge in aiming to prevent all terrorist attacks.
Which is why it’s so mystifying that the City Council is moving ahead to pass the Right to Know Act, which would dangerously discourage cops’ ability to perform proactive policing.
A vote is set for next week on this legislation, which is designed to get cops to ignore potential crimes and suspicious behavior for fear of civilian complaints.
But New Yorkers don’t want a police department that merely arrives at the scene of a tragedy to pick up the pieces. They want attacks like Monday’s prevented.
That means not handcuffing the NYPD’s ability to remain constantly.” [NY Post]
“A would-be Muslim suicide bomber’s attempt to kill morning rush hour commuters in Manhattan yesterday is throwing much-needed light on our disastrous “chain migration” immigration system that admits foreigners based merely on family connections.
In New York, thanks to people like de Blasio, it is now more important to avoid making Muslims uncomfortable than to actually root out terrorist plots that lead to the deaths of his constituents.[Front page Mag]
This is the Muslim way. The family is not outraged that their devout son wanted to murder as many innocent human beings as possible in the cause of Allah in the country that welcomed him and his whole family. The devout family is outraged at the NYPD for trying to save lives.
The jihad family is being represented by the terror group CAIR, of course. Just like the complicit San Bernardino mass murdering family. And the enemedia works hard to spit and shine their shoes. Let the litigation jihad begin.” [Pamela Geller]
“One of the attorneys representing the Muslim immigrant family of Akayed Ullah, the suspect arrested in the terror bombing of New York City’s subway system, has issued a scathing criticism of the police in their handling of the investigation — because they apparently worked too quickly to identify the accused. As always, CAIR serves as the apologist for the jihad world.” [Pamela Geller]
“The accused Port Authority bomber posted a taunting message to President Trump in the hours before the attack, authorities said Tuesday.
“Trump you failed to protect your nation,” Akayed Ullah, 27, wrote on Facebook early Monday, according to the federal complaint.
Investigators scouring Ullah’s Brooklyn home turned up a passport in his name with multiple handwritten notes, including “O AMERICA, DIE IN YOUR RAGE … ” [NY Daily News]
