NYC DEMANDS #EndJewHatred NOW!

On October 15, 2020, New Yorkers of all faiths and colors  demanded that Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio stop targeting the Jewish community.

“There is NO excuse for the government to single out ONE minority community.”

The coalition gathered in front of the famous New York Public Library on 5th Avenue (between 41st and 42nd Streets).

Their message:

“Over the past two weeks, Gov. Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio,  focused blame on the Jews for increased corona virus rates despite statistical evidence showing marked increases in many areas of New York.

Cuomo and de Blasio are ignoring the truth: there is a resurgence of COVID-19 everywhere, but not just in Jewish communities. The neighborhoods with the largest increase in the weekly case rate (over the last two weeks) are not even addressed by the government’s new restrictions.”

.“Yad Yamin NY, along with other groups and movements …

  …. were there demanding an end to the constant targeting of Jews & unfair applications of the Covid regulations. 

.”The coalition of groups marched from the NYPL to Gov. Cuomo’s office, continuing the protest against Gov Cuomo and Mayor De Blasio’s non-uniform application of laws regarding Jews and their direct targeting of Jews” (photo Karen Lichtbraun)

“By pinpointing one highly visible minority as plague-spreading lawbreakers, de Blasio and Cuomo are reinforcing centuries-old anti-Semitic tropes. And SHAMEFULLY, used pictures of observant Jews as a symbol of non-compliance and recklessness. This fuels Jew hatred and serves no legitimate government interest.”

Shame, Shame on them.

The speakers were surrounded by lots of press, though I’m not sure the reports got much play. (Slide show of video screen shots)

Red Bill De Blasio’s legacy : NYC’s Homeless and the never ending lock down

August 29, 2020. “Moscow on the Hudson” The Upper West side of Manhattan where UWS libs ELECTED Mayor “Red Bill”DeBlasio: TWICE. But now, after 6 months of a forced lock down that has fueled the homeless population, many of these progressive libs have become disenchanted. NIMBY is their battle cry.

 The situation morphed into YIMBY Libs vs NIMBY Libs.
(However, the NIMBYS were not on the side of the angels.)

[NY POST By Karol Markowicz] August 29, 2020

“The Upper West Side has been abuzz for weeks about the relocation of a number of homeless men to various hotels in the neighborhood. Many of the men are sex offenders and drug addicts. They aren’t receiving the more intensive services they need and the neighborhood has seen a steep decline in safety.

The newly formed group Upper West Siders for a Compassionate, Safe and Equitable Community, which wrote welcome messages in chalk outside the Lucerne. […] also started an online petition at Change.org  […] imploring neighbors worried about their personal safety — patrolling the streets to discourage midday open drug use and flashing  — to stop being so mean.

July 3, 2020 -Occupy City Hall – a Shanty Town’s Decay

July 3, 2020. Returning to Occupy City Hall, found a disgusting shanty town, no longer quaint, just dirty; a mess.

Also, some new signs, “Do Not Film or take pictures of Occupy Faces”

This is for their SAFETY, they say,  from police.

Also, new, no part of these public buildings or sidewalks has not been defaced. Occupy City Hall is befouled by graffiti.

The Mayor, sort of whimpered that this graffiti was unfortunate, and then: SILENCE.

PROFANITY was welcomed  (of course)

The encampment was trashed.

Video Part 1 – Sitting a-top their old Mexican style “Vote Bus”, a cheeky singer serenaded the crowd with “My Favorite Things”. (definitely NOT what I expected) with a pithy new lyric, “Then I don’t FEAR so bad.

Her song was followed by a rude speech to the NYPD officers standing-watch across Chambers St.  FEAR! “You about to Lose your Job!” and “This is BLACK JOY!”

Fear the occupiers. For sure.  Since this sign encouraged exposing personal info of the police officers.

The Occupy residents still don’t have much to do. They sit. lay around. (trying to stay dry since the rains were a deluge) That first week they very busy. painting. vandalizing. harassing. But, now. it was VERY quiet. Still plenty of food. and ice. and water. And someone is paying to have their laundry picked up and delivered. (wow)

Video Part 2. Watched these BLM thugs harass the cops who stood quietly against the trashed federal building. Fearless thuggery. They know they can be as rude and as a threatening as they like. DeBlasio said Hands Off. This is WRONG.

An appalling abuse of public property. Because they are “progressives”. Socialists. Marxists. So, what do New Yorkers do? To Fight Back? They are MOVING OUT! Especially the moneyed. Not just the regular folk who have lost their jobs. New York City is on its way to being another DETROIT.

Who would have thought this to be our future.

NYC Columbus Day Parade 2017 – the parade and politics (pics and vids)

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

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

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

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

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

NYC Italian-Americans: Save Columbus Circle Statue!

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

** 1891 lynchings Italian Americans

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

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

Italian-Americans fight movement to abolish Columbus Day

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

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

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

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

Why We Should Celebrate Columbus Day from Osia.org

>

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

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

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

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

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

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