“Trump/Pence #OutNow as the Marxist Revolution Continues

“October 19, 2019.  Union Square.  Wake up America. The Communist Revolution is at war with the U.S. Constitution, with America. It’s time to take their words and actions seriously.

Hosted by Refuse Fascism NYC and Refuse Fascism,Cornel West, Carl Dix , Andy Zee and Sunsara Taylor launched the first weekend of 5 weeks of nationwide protests, planned until the Trump/Pence Regime is removed from office. Face Book.

The instigators’ revolutionary bios:

 Cornel West, the son of a Baptist minister, is  a radical democrat and democratic socialist. West draws intellectual contributions from multiple traditions, including Christianity, the black church, Marxism, neopragmatism and transcendentalism .

Carl Dix  is a member of the Revolutionary Communist Party and advocate of Bob Avakian’s New Communism. In 1996, Dix co-founded the October 22nd Coalition to Stop Police Brutality, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation.

 Andy Zee is a co-initiator of REFUSE FASCISM, a project of the Revolutionary Communist Party and the Revolution Books NYC spokesperson.

Sunsara Taylor is a supporter of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA (RCP),[1]  Refuse Fascism and World Can’t Wait.

Video 1Andy Zee lays out the #OUTNOW  movement against Fascists, Trump and ….  Christians. 

Beginning with chants (threats):  “The Trump/Pence Regime Must GO.”Trump Pence Out Now, Puerto Rico showed us how”; “Trump and Pence are Fascists, there’s no doubt. Rise up. Rise up. Drive them out”

[Andy Zee] “This Fascist regime, this is their last chance. Decades in the making, they have built up a Christian Fascist movement. This doesn’t mean all Christians, but there is a Christian Fascist movement in this country that goes all the way up to the military and they want to change the rules of the game. They want to actually establish a theocracy. If you don’t believe me, READ the Attorney General Barr’s speech at Notre Dame, where he laid it out straight up – this would be the actual determinant of law, what’s in the bible taken literally; which is a HORROR for humanity.

And “Christians” like Cornel West do not take the bible literally.

But this is real. This is not something, that rhetoric to gin you all up and go out and raise your fists. This is a real thing. There’s millions of people who are organized behind a Fascist movement and on top of that, there’s very powerful people in the ruling class of this country who are supporting this. This is not just Donald Trump. But, here’s a problem we face. The poet, W.B. Yates said after ….

[Pro Trump heckler in back of crowd] What are you going to do about it.

(Yates quote is heard in the background) “The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity.”

(Zee continues) And this too much describes the people in this country. And this is not to denigrate the people who are out there fighting around the various affects of this regime … heroic people who have been run over by cars, people who have been arrested, people who have occupied offices…that is necessary, but it is insufficient because each of these struggles will be washed over by this regime should it succeed in power.

Now, this impeachment opens up a constitutional crisis. Which means that people are raising their heads and saying, “Well, maybe we can do something about it.” But, this is a fight at the top of society. It requires you to see that there’s a good ending to this, that the interests of humanity are in here. Nancy Pelosi is impeaching only on the grounds of national security and emoluments. But, look, she’s leaving the whole Fascist agenda intact, and if that happens, if he even is impeached in the House of Representatives, that will leave a ‘legitimation’ of the agenda and reduce this to an election issue, one they have a told you already they want to make secondary to economic incentives and things like that; which are important needs that people have but it’s nothing but bribery to keep your eyes off the prize of what really has to be done right now.

So, we can’t just do this based on the people on top. It has to be a ground-swell from below; that’s what you’re out here doing today. And it’s not just a matter of each one of us convincing one, it’s a matter of understanding that we’re working on  …  a great deal of crisis. That people are increasingly raising their heads and opening their eyes, and they have to see a movement out there that starts with thousands today and tens of thousands within a few weeks that grows to the point that we not relent on this.”

A couple of Trump 2020’s braved the commie disdain, like this biker.

Video 2, The biker-type was a Trump 2020 supporter. He was challenged by a furious hardcore Marxist female. Called him a racist. A woman of color was quite angry with another Trump supporter (a man of color). She told him he was crazy. He spoke to a red-headed WHITE girl who mocked him when he mentioned the Marxists were encouraging separation/division.  She snarls back at him with “Separation of the Fascist fucking regime? Trump.” (throwing her head back with a laugh of ridicule).

Video 3 – Mothers of color railed against the NYPD and ….  Trump.  Excerpted Intros. (mentioned) Juanita Young, the mother of  Malcolm Ferguson. 

Hawa Bah, the mother of Mohamed Bah, who was murdered by the NYPD, speaks:  “They killed my son. I will never be the same in my life. Me and my family will never be the same. Mohamed was one year raised in West Africa. I bring him here to get a better life. They KILLED him.”

Last woman (no name) [:33] “And next they’ll be coming for YOU. Make sure you stand on it now before someone knocks on your door. Or kills your child. Get rid of the leader of this crew. This gang that we have in the White House. The Trump/Pence regime and all of his soldiers. They are marching in tune, one behind the other. Stand up and be counted. Let us not go back to before slavery. Let us not go back to the massacre of the native Americans. Let’s go forward. We’ve come too far to go back.  Step up your name. Step up your count. Step up your feet. If you can’t run, grab a limb. If you have no shoes, drag a leg. But move forward. We’re goin’ on  from here. We are not going back. Trump/Pence Must Go!! (fist held high)  Go! Go! Go!”

Video 4-  Sunsara Taylor, an advocate for “the new synthesis on revolution and communism” developed by Bob Avakian, called for Donald Trump to be “driven from office”  [revcom]

[Sunsara begins with a Hillary southern drawl] “Let’s make some noise, y’all.” (cheers) “Now I have a question for you. I have a question. Do y’all feel like marchin’?” (crowd,YES) “Do y’all feel like hittin’ the streets?” (cheers) “Do y’all feel like takin’ this message up to that tower? Trump Tower. The towering [curse] of this regime? We are going to march right to the tower. Are you ready? (cheers) Okay, so we all gonna soon get organize. We are gonna hit the streets. First, I wanta let you know that we have a right to be here. We have a right to raise our demands. We have a right to be heard by the world. I wantcha to know, we had to battle to get a permit and we have a permit to march. And we asked them to march, and you guys … We’re gonna call on people as we march to join with us. I want you to know that we put in a demand, a legitimate demand to march right up to Trump Tower. And you want to know somethin’? The NYPD did not grant us a permit to be in front of Trump Tower. I wantcha to know this. We have a right to be there. We intend to march there. They have told us they will escort us to the tower, so that is our expectation. But, I wantcha to know, I want everybody to understand, and I want the police to understand. I want the city to understand and I want the world to understand that Trump Tower is the place where it matters that our demands to be heard; that is the symbol of this regime in NYC. Am I right? (cheers) That is where Donald Trump came down the escalator and called Mexicans rapists and announced his campaign. That’s where we demand to be heard. That’s where we intend to be heard. That’s where Donald Trump came out after Charlottesville; and the White Supremacists with their torches and murdered Heather Meyer. That’s where Donald Trump said, “Those are fine people.” That’s where we intend to raise our demand out loud; and we intend to be there and be heard there. Am I right? (cheers) So we fully expect that justice and reason will prevail. And we will be able to march unimpeded and deliver this message there; and we are going to do it together. So let’s get organized and hit-the-streets.”

Trump and Pence are Fascist, there’s no doubt.” (drums- maracas)

 The  Socialist REVOLUTION, the machine, can be seen in this Marxist indoctrination video from 2017 (edited for shorter talking points). Listening to their relentless propaganda makes defeating communism’s  goals seem daunting, or … makes us even more determined to challenge the Marxist lies.

 Do you know what your children have been given to read, as enticements to join the Marxist/ Socialist bandwagon? These materials are welcomed, considered non-threatening: Enlightenment. (click picture to enlarge a view of some of the Communist reading materials.)


The  Socialist REVOLUTION, revealed in this Marxist indoctrination video from 2017. Fascism in America: Can It Happen Here? Is It Happening Here? What is the Danger the Trump/Pence Government Poses?

They are ALL so very, very compassionate and WISE.

The panel of speakers included: Jay W. Walker, Refuse Fascism. With: George Prochnik, author, New Yorker contributor; Rita Dentino, Casa Freehold of National Day Laborers Organizing Network; Kierán Suckling, Executive Director of Center for Biological Diversity; Andy Zee, Refuse Fascism, Revolution Books NYC and Sunsara Taylor, Revolutionary Communist Party.

A short excerpt of the wrap up, after the “Rise of Fascism”panel, by moderator, Sunsara Taylor.  Full video link [https://youtu.be/Y2yI81-s3R0] …. Marxist indoctrination 101 ….

April 27th, 2017 (Church of The Village) Intro by Jay Walker (Sunsara at 1:47) People have a very hard time handling world, part of the impulse that gets filled with a lot of religion in this very insecure world, not just religion in general but, fundamentalism and absolutism, is living in contradiction with a lot of variables and a lot of uncertainties. Is this good for us? Trump has brought all these people together. A lot of people like that. It’s comforting and it’s simple. You have the history of this country’s biggest protests after the election, this is good for us.  I agree, this is very bad. It’s not good if the planet gets destroyed. It’s not good for the refugees, for those people  whose lives are crushed right now. … I’m sure people in the audience , when you were speaking, thought, “Oh, shit. Now we’re fucked.” (excuse me, we’re in a church) We’re doomed.  I think it’s very, very bad, the situation, and I agree with what was said. But, here’s a contradiction (I will pull a quote I learned; written, I think, in the Bush years) it’s even more true now. History is filled with examples where people who have RIGHT on their side fought against tremendous odds and were successful. History is also full of  examples where people sat back and hoped  … only to get swallowed by a horror beyond what they ever imagined. The future is unwritten and which one we get is up to us … very few live in a time in history …  as significant as the one we are living in now. It is neither good for us, it’s very bad, nor is it doomed. And sitting at the middle of that pivot is every single person living in this country …. it’s not insignificant that tremendous numbers of people are in the street protesting. It is significant that a lot of people are saying “I identify with Muslims”. “I identify with the women under attack”. “I identify with people for the first time, the immigrants.” This is new for a lot of people. It is very significant. It’s not enough to stop them. There’s too much surface critique. There’s too much … being … ya know… comforted in the slow dismissal of some of the really stupid and ugly things that are said by Trump. But there is a basis to move those people … to unite them, to move them in to an actual movement that can drive them from power. And STOP them before they consolidate power and to go in to the streets and change the course of history.” [April 27, 1917]

As ordered, Communists are in-the-street; Socialism leads the way.

The relentless propaganda makes defeating communism  seem daunting, or … makes us even more determined to challenge the Marxist lies; the phony claims of Fascism as they also rail against Christians.

“Generational shifts will see older, more religious Democrats making way for a new generation. Before long a majority of all Democrats will no longer identify as Christians or as religious believers. The Democrats have not only adopted values that are fundamentally hostile to traditional religious believers, but the demographics show that they are living out those values. Republicans and Democrats are no longer divided by their approach to religion, but by religion itself.” [D. Greenfield]

Today it’s the Christians, tomorrow it’s Israel, BDS and the Jews. Religion is bad. Trump is bad. God is BAD.

Headline: “We need to get organized for an actual revolution”. The future gens are unable to recognize the end game for Marxist/Socialism, dumbed down by pretty “social justice” memes.

“We reject State sanctioned violence, bigotry, and systemic discrimination in all its forms, including those directed at people because of their disability, gender identity/expression, immigration status, race, religion, sex, and sexuality. We condemn all the oppressive policies that define the current government regime. We strive to intentionally honor the complex challenges we face. Join us in fighting for justice”.

“Take to the Streets, New York City. IMPEACH NOW!”

” On Sunday, October 13, 2019, folks from across the tri-state area will be taking to the streets in NYC as we join marches nationwide to demand our elected representatives IMPEACH NOW.”


Hosted by Rise and Resist ; March for Truth;
By the People – Impeach Trump; Women’s March.

IMPEACH NOW!  TOOK TO THE STREETS

“If we don’t act now to demand that Congress fulfill its constitutional duty, Trump will be emboldened to carry out further abuses of power that trample on our rights, harm our families, and violate the Constitution.”

The day we stop fighting for democracy is the day we lose it.” [Face Book]

The youthful leaders, the future of communism, as Impeach Now rang through Duffy Square

The younger they are, even more nefarious than the 20-somethings.

Today’s celebrity in-the-crowd was amongst our elders (who should know better) “social justice”warrior, Kathleen Chalfant.

Our Democracy is in Danger, from YOU, Kathleen.

Video 1. “We must drive this regime from office. And then take an upsurge from below. People going to the streets and staying in the streets (…) bringing symbols of the towering crimes of this fascist regime. It’s time to impeach. Dump Trump!”

Video 2 – “If you can hear me say IMPEACH. Today we are here to send a message across the country, to our members of congress, if they intend to return to D.C., we demand IMPEACH NOW. (…) This weekend we’re taking responsibility for our democracy; for our people. Because somebody is above the law. The Constitution has a form of accountability. It is impeachment. There is no question … he will continue to abuse his power. To violate the constitution and put the safety of American lives at risk. We have no choice, for the future of our country, we must demand that we IMPEACH TRUMP NOW. We demand that Congress …  in the House ….inquiry … pass articles of impeachment. This Fall. (…) We are here because we love our country. And the only way to protect our country is to support our democracy. So say with me, IMPEACH NOW.”

Video 3 – “We are the National Revolution. We’re joining up to drive out the Trump Pence Fascist Regime because the reality is the system brought this nightmare. (…)We have to come together under a single unified (?) Out Now. Out Now! We want to unite and struggle with everybody (..) because business as usual is what got us here. A system founded on genocide and slavery.  And we don’t wanta go back. (…)We have to get organized for revolution. Let’s get to know each other.”

Video 4. “Union Square. People gotta be there. We’re gonna launch the OUT NOW Movement. We’re gonna launch my marching to Trump Tower and bringing items that represent Trump crimes. Trump towering crimes of fascism. Bring baby shoes to represent the immigrants who’ve been torn from their parents. Bring coat hangers to represent women going back to the dark ages. Bring oil to represent the destruction to our planet. Trump’s speech in Minneapolis  was the speech of an American Hitler whipping up fascist mobs to violence. The same fascist mobs that murdered our people in El Paso. And this is important, Trump is not going to follow the law. The Democrats have called for impeachment. And what did he say? He said I’m not gonna comply. We can’t wait this out. Turn off your TV. Get off the couch. And get in the streets like they did in Hong Kong. Like they did in Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico showed us how, Trump and Pence must go now.”

Video 5. The march heads for Union Square. “Hey Hey Ho Ho Donald Trump has got to go.” 3:03 (speaker) “We’re on the right side….now is the time to act. to be emboldened. …. Puerto Rico showed us how. Trump Pence out now.

“We are at the most critical moment in this fight yet. The ground of what’s politically possible is shifting, but we have to keep up the momentum until we’ve won.” [Face Book]

Climate Marxists reveal relentless indoctrination of Student Protestors in NYC

September 20, 2019. Foley Square. NYC. It’s a fact, Climate Strike Marxists have a solid grip on the “Hearts and Minds” of our children.

Extinction Rebellion  why have we allowed them to permeate our every thought with this dooms day insanity?

What I saw marching was giddiness. silliness. Students happily proclaiming ONLY they could save the world from this CHICKEN LITTLE extinction. Even though starting with pre-school, they are told they have no future. You’d think they’d be a bit sad? Nope. It was party!

Do you know what your child is being ‘taught’ ? After 40-50 years of hard-core leftist indoctrination, generations – including adults – cannot contradict the indoctrination they’ve been saturated with on all levels. Can we do ANYTHING to end this insanity? That’s the conundrum.

Controlled. Intimidated. Opposing Marxist agit-prop would make you a NAZI.

The streets of lower Manhattan were jam-packed from all sides with young and old. Sadly, we may have lost the war for the hearts and minds of the next generation.

Or, can we save the FUTURE? Will the truth win-out?

Short slide show of their ridiculous politics:

DSC_1090

““There are real environmental issues, but global warming isn’t one of them. Man-made climate change is a monumental top-down fraud. It’s a ploy to prevent the third world from developing, to keep it mired in poverty. It’s a huge tax scam to redistribute wealth from the poor and the middle class to the one percent. And these self-satisfied, sanctimonious useful idiots, whether they know it or not, are fully complicit,” (Paul)Watson [Western Free Press]

IMG_0623

Profanity seems to be as important to the younger participants as the ‘adults’: profanity de rigueur

Video of assembly and march

Unless we put an END government UNION-controlled indoctrination (aka education) the future will continue to look dim. Intellectual Child abuse rolls-on.

In New York, students have been allowed to skip school with the blessing of Mayor de Blasio, who said in a tweet, “we have ten years to save the planet. New York stands with our young people, they’re our conscience.”

According to The New York Times, 1,000 students from Beacon High School in Hell’s Kitchen plan to attend the march — almost two-thirds of the student body.

But while students will get a free pass, the city announced earlier this week that teachers won’t be allowed to participate in the march with their students because it would constitute a political activity.

Disappointed teachers said they’d been planning for months to attend with younger students as chaperones and now many of those students won’t be able to participate. Younger students also have permission to skip school but need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian to leave class.” [NY Daily News] also [NY Daily News]

Free Speech Assault! Tell NYC Mayor de Blasio “We Won’t Pay the Fine!”

SAY NO TO Mayor Bill de Blasio and his FREE SPEECH POLICE!

DSC_9170.jpg
October 7, 2019. 5 pm. outside NY City Hall. A protest was planned in support of Free Speech.

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio wants to impose fines of up to $250k on New Yorker’s for using the term”Illegal Alien” If this isn’t enough, he also wants to legislate that we cannot tell “Illegal Aliens” to speak in English, in an English Speaking United States! He also suggests that reporting “Illegals Aliens” to ICE is a Hate Crime.” Tell Bill How You feel! We support LEGAL Immigration. [Face Book]

This was a great idea for a protest so I headed downtown to City Hall, looking forward to challenging Mayor de Blasio and his Marxist/Socialist Free Speech fines; fines that diminish our rights as American Citizens. The message, tell “Red Bill” de Blasio: WE Won’t Pay!

The city’s Commission on Human Rights releases a new 29-page directive …

The directive reads “‘Alien’ — used in many laws to refer to a ‘non-citizen’ person — is a term that may carry negative connotations and dehumanize immigrants, marking them as ‘other,’…The use of certain language, including ‘illegal alien’ and ‘illegals,’ with the intent to demean, humiliate, or offend a person or persons constitutes discrimination.”

The directive goes on to list several examples of acts and comments that would run afoul of the restrictions, including harassing people over their accents or grasp of English, or wielding the threat of a call to Immigration and Customs Enforcement as a tool of hate. [de Blasio Fine]

When de Blasio ran for Mayor, NYC was warned he had a love affair with Cuba and Marxism; a warning ignored. (see presser from 2013)


Now, in his second term, the Marxist/Socialist list has grown. However, missing from the on-line list, Margaret Chin and Ydanis Rodriguez. And previous city council members, elected to other jobs, Jumaane Williams, now Public Advocate and Letitia James, now Attorney General of NY State: Movin’ on up.

Margarita López Torres Surrogate Judge, Kings County

And ….  it’s worse State wide. That’s why we were here today, to focus on the de Blasio free speech assault. But, finding the Mayor de Blasio protest was a challenge. After a 30 minute search, I located some activity, but it was a Trump 2020 rally.

DSC_7412.jpg Not what was promoted. Not what I came for.  As I headed back up town, I found one “We Won’t Pay” protestor, Karen from Yad Yamin. On Message!

Mayor de Blasio “We Won’t Pay” was a great idea for a protest since the socialist machine intends to remake our governments, local and national. Venezuela. Cuba. Fighting back, even locally, is very important. I’m here for you, President Trump, but today was supposed to be about Mayor de Blasio’s socialist harassment and fines against free speech. Maybe next time.

FREE SPEECH threatened by Mayor Bill de Blasio.
We Must Fight back …
STOP Mayor de Blasio and his assault on Free Speech!

March on Wall Street – Defend Venezuela – Stop U.S. War Machine

“No War ON Venezuela” means, for the left, that all aggression begins and ends with the U. S. war mongers. They are responsible for all wars and abuses in Venezuela. Not their despot, Maduro. If you want food and medicine? Look to socialism not  capitalism. The people are starving because the greedy U.S. capitalistas thrive on war. Say no to regime change wars!!

Hosted by International Action Center [Face Book] the #23Feb “March on Wall Street” was meant to expose the force behind the coup in Venezuela: the U.S. ruling class!” No War on Venezuela!

@nowaronvenezuela
“The weekend of February 23 – the 1 month anniversary of the U.S.-backed coup attempt in Venezuela – will marked by internationally co-ordinated actions in solidarity with the people of Venezuela and against the U.S., Wall Street and the Pentagon’s drive to war.”

“What caused Venezuela economic crisis? Corruption. Discontent with corruption was cited by opposition-aligned groups as one of the reasons for the 2014Venezuelan protests. Venezuela used to be a wealthy nation of Latin America, but a corrupt system along with drop in oil prices drove the country into political and economic crisis.”

…. calls himself the “interim president” of Venezuela, faces possible arrest upon return after he slipped out of the country in violation of a Supreme Court order to stay within the country’s borders.

Guaido left Venezuela last week to join “aid” convoys in Colombia and then met with US Vice President Mike Pence as well as other regional leaders to step up pressure on Maduro to resign.

Maduro’s government has closed borders with Brazil and Colombia in order to block what he says is an attempt by the US to proceed with its regime change plans.

Russia and China vetoed on Thursday a US and European-backed resolution at the United Nations that would have called for new presidential elections in Venezuela and unimpeded deliveries of humanitarian aid.

Besides Russia and China, countries like Iran and Turkey have also backed Maduro.” [Press TV – Iran News Service]

“As one of the first deserters, he was quickly taken in and presented to Guaido, who had sneaked across the border into Colombia to oversee the aid launch.

Torres said he stood at attention and pledged his loyalty to the 35-year-old lawmaker recognized as Venezuela’s interim president by over 50 nations, including the United States and many Latin American countries.

“We’re still in time to change history,” he said Guaido told him.

For Gomez, the breaking point came when he saw another National Guardsman hit in the face by a fire bomb. Even though he was badly injured, commanders wouldn’t call an ambulance to take him to the hospital, Gomez said. Fearing what might happen if he himself was struck by protesters, he decided to flee. “They wouldn’t have done anything for me,” Gomez said.” [NBC News]

“Venezuelan military defectors say people are starving to death. They condemn President Maduro as the US again gives its backing to opposition leader Juan Guaido.

The authorities in Colombia says more than 160 members of the armed forces have deserted. Sitting alongside their national guard, navy and police uniforms, one man who spent 30 years in the navy, said he believes more senior people will depart and ultimately weaken Maduro’s leadership.” [Sky News]

Final Question; When did Venezuela become communist?

“The Communist Party of Venezuela (Spanish: Partido Comunista de Venezuela, PCV) is a communist party and the oldest continuously existing party in Venezuela. It remained the main leftist political party in Venezuela from its foundation in 1931 until it split into rival factions in 1971.

I was forged in the heat of popular and union struggles in a Venezuela submerged in exclusion and inequality. I am no tycoon; I am a worker of mind and heart. Today I have the great privilege of presiding over the new Venezuela, rooted in a model of inclusive development and social equality, which Comandante Hugo Chávez forged starting in 1998, inspired by the legacy of Simón Bolivar.”

Pray for the People of Venezuela

NYU Students Demand Sanctuary Campus: Solidarity with Illegals

March 1, 2017 – 3 pm 

  Sanctuary NYU Rally at NYU Kimmel Center

FYI- New York University (NYU) is a private nonprofit research university based in New York City; a world-class university, operating NYU Abu Dhabi and NYU Shanghai and 11 global academic centers in Accra, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Florence, London, Madrid, Paris, Prague, Sydney, Tel Aviv, and Washington, D.C.  Alumni include heads of state, royalty, eminent mathematicians, inventors, media figures, Olympic medalists, CEOs of Fortune 500 companies and astronauts. NYU alumni are among the wealthiest in the world. According to The Princeton Review, NYU is consistently considered by students and parents as a “Top Dream College.”

video crowd – chants – indoctrination 101

The average NYU student seems to come from the faux 1 %. The privileged, pampered generation, taught by their Marxist professors to hate themselves. Therefore, they must apologize 24/7.

“Dear Allies, Please join us at our rally in Kimmel from 3-4pm on Wednesday, March 1, to call on NYU to declare sanctuary campus and demonstrate its commitment to members of the NYU community made more vulnerable by the Trump administration. We want to emphasize that the event is for faculty, staff, and students!

President Hamilton still refuses to declare NYU a Sanctuary campus. For a so- called progressive university this seems totally out of character. Some would say NYU is not progressive at all. We expect them to protect us. We have to make them. “Whose campus OUR campus!”

Intro for faculty member who began speaking (off-camera) “... next speaker is an NYU Professor” (CHEERS/applause)

“Thank you all for being here. Do I really need this megaphone? You can’t hear me without this? ... Well, first of all, I want to say how exciting the energy is in this room and (cheers) to underscore how important it is for our President to declare NYU a sanctuary campus. It’s so important symbolically but it’s actually incumbent upon us as students faculty and staff at this university to MAKE this campus a sanctuary campus without (my video begins) waiting for permission. (cheers)”

Video of faculty speech: Of course, they BELIEVE these ALTERNATIVE facts (they have no choice)

Transcription of her speech:

“Right now there are 500,000 unauthorized workers in  New York City. 99.9% of those do not have criminal records, other than committing the crime of having to cross the border without documentation. These unauthorized workers as you’ve heard, time and again, if you bought yesterday at whole foods, if you bought, you know, a garment of some local designer in So Ho or Brooklyn, these are the people who are sewing your garments and picking your  fruit. It’s the reason why you have ENTIRE indigenous communities on Long Island from (? Chapa and Xauacca and D?… ?) picking our vegetables and our fruits. And it’s why we get those vegetables and fruits so cheaply because, indeed, they ARE paid less than you would have to pay a person with documents.

This doesn’t mean that WE can’t, just because Hamilton hasn’t declared this a sanctuary campus, it doesn’t mean that WE CAN’T. I mean, imagine what it would be like if every dorm room, every office, every library, every classroom were OPEN to undocumented workers who are being PERSECUTED by ICE. If we really turned this into a sanctuary, just like Judson Church next door, can you imagine the optics of ICE agents trying to come and remove a mother or a father who’s taking refuge in our university? Can you imagine the optics of  ICE having to storm a university campus to remove these people?

We have a very powerful role we can play, especially in New York City,  where so many, so many of our unauthorized immigrants work and..uh..play, too.

The other thing that’s very, very important to remember, especially, I love the chant, uh, you know, “Education and jobs rather than mass deportation”. But, let’s not kid ourselves. One of the reasons why Trump wants to expand ICE and deportation (and …) that’s his job program. Hiring 10, 00 or 15,000 more ICE workers, that’s the extent of his jobs program. (light laughter) And so we have to, we have to, you know, increasing the military [a ?… after his jobs program] So we need to make this evident. It’s  incumbent upon us, like I said, to be the voice, to be a sanctuary movement beyond whatever happens to may or may not declare.

One of the…we have to remember that sanctuary came into this country as part of the abolition movement. And so sanctuary never saw its role as limited to protecting, you know, the slaves that ran away. They saw their role as (??) the voices of those who have been enslaved. Just as we have to understand our role as very privileged faculty and students and staff (??) the voices of unauthorized workers in our community.

Beyond the DACA students that we have here, who we of course have to  protect, let’s not  forget that DACA  students do still have some authorization. But what about their friends? What about their families? We have to figure out ways of (??) as a united community in the face of this blatant racist law that Donald Trump is trying to enforce.

The other thing that’s very important is, I’m going to get a little nerdy on you all, is when Trump talks about all the jobs that NAFTA destroyed in the United States. What he doesn’t tell you is all the jobs that NAFTA destroyed in Mexico. (applause/cheers) 4 million farms in Mexico were put out of work and when you put a Mexican farm out of work you put generations of workers out of work. Its not just the one farm owner. No. You’re actually setting into motion hundreds of people per farm looking for labor.

And that’s why they’re here, doing that agricultural work; those agricultural jobs. It’s not a coincidence that 11 million Mexican unauthorized workers who are here, came after the passage of NAFTA. Because NAFTA destroyed jobs in that economy, just as it destroyed here. ‘Cause the sole purpose of NAFTA was to lower the cost of labor across the Americas. It did so very successfully. And one of the consequences that we have now had to bring in to our community, people who are willing to do work, jobs that… whose payment has been pushed down.

So, we have to remember that, when NAFTA was negotiated, it negotiated for the free passage of goods. It negotiated the free passage of capital, but what was left out of that dream (??) labor. So that’s what unauthorized workers are doing here, they’re working. Because they can’t find jobs in their country and because the price of labor has been pushed so far down that U.S. citizens can’t afford to reproduce themselves, doing the jobs at that hourly wage.

So, uh, anyway (?) (cheers/applause) We don’t have to communicate. We don’t have to wait for Hamilton to declare this a sanctuary campus and to make it a sanctuary campus. Let’s figure out ways of inviting those unauthorized workers into our class rooms, into our dorms, into our residential campuses, into our offices to share their stories and to, also, find refuge. Thank you.”

I leave you with a few links that convey the warped perspective of the NYU students: “Whose campus, OUR campus.”


In Solidarity,

“Hi All, Below are two links to some of the correspondence NYU Sanctuary has had with President Hamilton. Hope they help contextualize the the rally tomorrow!”

 

.
“Establishing a Sanctuary Campus at NYU:  Explainer”

“NYU Sanctuary Edits to President Hamilton’s Notes”

The Sanctuary Campus rally is in “support of the most vulnerable community members” ; to spread awareness about President Hamilton’s deliberate choice to not declare NYU as a Sanctuary

President Hamilton, as you said that you are interested in substantive language and substantive actions. So why does NYU publicly celebrate the language of diversity and inclusion, and yet refuses to stand in solidarity with students who are at risk and people who are at risk, and stand up to this federal regime of White nationalism? In your refusal to declare Sanctuary, whose interests are you protecting?#TeaWithAndy#NYUSanctuary

“You said you said you are taking all measures to protect undocumented students. I would like to know why in the month of February, did the Law school invite ICE recruiters onto campus?”#TeaWithAndy#NYUSanctuary

AND THAT MY FRIENDS, is what these very privileged students are bombarded with “day in and day out”, compliments of the Marxist influence that runs deeply through faculty and staff at NYU. Progressives. Indoctrination 101. What a waste.

May Day 2014 – Commies & Illegals’ Annual Hate-Fest “Amerika” (pictures)

10151261_10152338296771418_6100636020548424883_n

Why do Illegals swarm in to a country they hate? They hate America. Just ask them. Big Bad Amerika And the Commies with their 100 year old grudge. Jealousy. Resentment. Dedicated to the destruction of the American Dream.

The Collective. It must control us all. Individualism must die. Long Live the Totalitarian State and our Dreams Be Damned.

It’s a puzzlement. Decade after Decade they reseed their hatreds  Union Square. A parade of the fools and tools of Marxism.  If only they would wither and die away…if only….

Sadly,  their Evil lives on in an Imperfect World.

 

Two Slide shows of pictures. 

What they say and do doesn’t change from year to year. Reading their signs and posters brings to mind:  ‘Stuck on Stupid’ . Their books. Their pamphlets. If we are ever going to stop them. Know thy Enemy…

Part 1 Slide Show

These two moments caught my eye .  WHY was that woman sitting at a “Stop and Frisk Table”  They won. It is NO More.

And Capitalism is A-Okay when it comes to their ubiquitous money jars and buckets.  No cash? No worry. They’ll take your credit cards. ( credit cards displayed on the book holder / lower left corner) Free-bees. No Way

Wow ! Stop endless Wars? Why didn’t we all think of  that.

And $ 15 a Hour. Sure! No Problem! Promise Them Anything. It’s not their money. It’s YOURS.

But, don’t worry. The Answers are Here.. In UNION SQUARE. Workers Unite!!
