Milo Yiannopoulos Free Speech Press Rally Outside Simon & Schuster NY HQ

Milo Yiannopoulos’ “Free Speech Rally” was scheduled outside Simon & Schuster for 10:30 am., so I arrived at about 10:05. Unfortunately, by 10:15 or s0,  the RAINS CAME! ( a two hour MONSOON!)

The presser did not begin until after Noon. Meanwhile, press and the crowd waited patiently; VERY patiently (and VERY WET).

Most everyone hung-in there, INSIDE Simon and Schuster and OUT.

 We finally saw Milo a bit after Noon;  he arrived amidst a light but steady misting. (the TWO HOUR monsoon was finally over) Greeted by an enthusiastic crowd, Milo proceeded to the announcement of his lawsuit.

Milo filed a $10 million suit against Simon & Schuster for “willful and opportunistic breach of its contract” to publish his book “Dangerous.”

He also answered questions before he leading the eager group of fans and press on the ten block walk to CNN.  see  LINK

VIDEO of presser:

“DANGEROUS was #1 on Amazon based on pre-orders before Simon & Schuster canceled the book. It was the most anticipated book in decades, but they terminated MILO’s contract and canceled the book under intense pressure from leftists intent on shutting down free speech.”

“The Chicago Review of Books announced a boycott of Simon & Schuster following the announcement of DANGEROUS. 160 Simon & Schuster children’s book authors wrote a letter of complaint about MILO to the CEO of the company. Can you imagine how many cats those 160 SJWs own? Simon & Schuster folded, so now MILO is publishing his masterpiece on his own!

“Now it is time for lovers of free speech to strike back. Since Milo’s book comes out on July 4th, it is the perfect week to hold a free speech rally outside of Simon & Schuster headquarters in New York City. Milo will deliver a speech to the crowd, and it will be a giant spectacle — like every MILO event.”

“Simon & Schuster made a terrible mistake by canceling DANGEROUS, now let’s remind them just how badly they screwed up! Together, MILO and his amazing fans will make 7/7 a date that reminds the world that MILO will never allow himself to be censored!”

AND, in case you missed the “Pahty of all Pahties” on July 6Laura Loomer posted the Jihadi “strippers” on periscope


More from the NY Post on Milo’s Wild Book Party, including a 15 minute you tube clip, inside the “PAHTY” , as MILO took stage.

In conclusion, as “MILO’s Billboards Take Over Times Square, the spirit of Milo’s presser marches on : “DANGEROUS” is available now, published by Dangerous Books. https://tinyurl.com/ybs7wpl3

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

                                      [2 photos – Mike Grambush]

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

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

  [AFDI screen shot with me in red circle]

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

                                 (3 live podcast screen shots – Tim Pool)

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

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

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

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

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

[AFDI screenshot]

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

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

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

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

Milo Yiannopoulos was the final keynote speaker

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

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

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

Dov Hikind  (D) N.Y. State Assemblyman

Parting thoughts from Pamela Geller:

 CUNY has invited a pro-terror, pro-sharia anti-semite to give the keynote commencement address. And they will not reconsider. Universities have dis-invited Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Nonie Darwish, Ann Coulter, Milo, legions of conservative thinkers and voices in defense of freedom, but a vicious, pro-sharia, Jew-hater they will defend to the death and that is it right there. They fear jihad. They fear Islamic supremacists. They know no harm with come to them if they smear, defame, libel or cancel us. They know we don’t destroy, maim, behead like Sarsour supporters and their violent running dogs on the left.

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

Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch calls on Americans to protest:

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

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