3rd Annual “Indigenous” Peoples Day is Hate America, Hate White People Day

DECOLONIZE! RECLAIM! RE IMAGINE! Indigenous Peoples Day …  aka Anti-Columbus, Anti-White Peoples’ Day

Oct. 8, 2018. 3 pm. Outside the American Museum of Natural History (that Hall of White Supremacy) TOXIC!

Anarchists (Offensive. Misguided. Tools) hosted this 3rd annual tour (and even managed to drop protest banners inside)

Determined to REMAKE America, which includes: NO MORE KAVANAUGHS.

They Hate White People. They Hate America.

They HATE this museum.

 ABOLISH the Natural History Museum and #decolonizethisplace

A couple of cowards vandalized the museum subway station.

Found immigration themed ads in midtown, meant to shame us all.
“Don’t be afraid of ANYONE”

When the RIGHTS of Immigrants are DENIED,
The RIGHTS of citizens are at RISK.”

Like we hate immigrants … it’s legal vs ILLEGAL.

Back to Natural History Museum protest HOSTED by: Chinatown Art Brigade 唐人街藝術隊/ 唐人街艺术队 Community;  South Asia Solidarity Initiative Political Organization;Decolonize This PlaceArtists; American Indian Community House Social ServiceCommunity ServiceOrganization.


They gathered in front of the statue of white-supremacist, Theodore Roosevelt.

Important announcements were set to the beating of drums to inspire the indigenous peoples and their supporters.  (See Video)

FORTUNATELY, they were NOT ALLOWED to throw Red Paint on Teddy Roosevelt this year. (LOTS of BARRICADES)

See 2017 vandalism:

From their Face Book page: 1.We need your support to make “Indigenous Peoples Day” strong and beautiful.

2. Join “Liberation Drum Circles” for a community drum circle and chant writing.

Their centerfold for Indigenous Peoples Day 2018 Action Brochure is coming to a school near you  …  if you let them ….

Not all was about colonizing. Overheard this polite debate on why Dr. Ford should be jailed for perjury. (or not)

Some unpleasant  facts the protestors have NOT included in their NEW and IMPROVED Museum of Natural History brochures.

“Columbus wrote about a tribe of natives called the Caribs. They would attack the other peaceful tribes, take captives for slaves and would eat them. The young boys were castrated and forced into slavery. The men were consumed. The women were concubines and if they bore a male child that child would be eaten. So when you celebrate “Indigenous Peoples Day”, will you be honoring the Caribs too?”

Intense debate with anarchist claiming America is HER land, not the colonizers.

More pithy t-shirts (click pic to enlarge) and their Week of Action DEMANDS: End Zero Tolerance, Hire Black Teachers, Mandate Black History/Ethnic Studies.


Anarchists explained why this year’s actions remain imperative: “After three years now of discussions with the museum that have led nowhere, we report that they do not appreciate their complicity in perpetuating structures of oppression, nor do they recognize the urgency present in addressing the harm inflicted by their exhibits, representations, and narratives in advancing patriarchal, white supremacist, and euro-centric representations of indigenous, black and brown bodies.” [Face Book]

“They ignore calls for reparations and repatriation. So, we return to the museum to let them know they cannot wait us out and our demands will not wither.”

“This is a family friendly event (- F-ing White People-) that moves towards applying more pressure on the museum through escalatory tactics. We seek to decolonize, reclaim and re-imagine this Hall of White Supremacy”: FIRST NATIONS WERE HERE FIRST!

Proud Americans, in SUPPORT of AMERICAN LAWS, countered the indigenous protest.

Day of Justice – NYC- Abortion on Demand Hysteria as Hatred for all things Trump Prevailed

NARAL’S “DAY OF JUSTICE” NYC. “Fighting for Reproductive Freedom” by the National Abortion Rights Action League.

KAVANAUGH. TRUMP. Knee-jerk fighting words for the Feminazi Left.

Can’t have a gathering of NARAL Feminazis without obscenities, that’s how you know they are forward-thinking; independent of society’s cultural bondage. So, the profanities flowed. (this feline picture was tame compared to what I heard from the stage)

Didn’t bother recording the verbal harangues. Heard them once. Heard them all as they ranted on and on about imagined ‘threats’.


Abortion on demand. Claims of ‘coat-hanger’ deaths. (screen shots below from Barely Informed With Elad)

But the lives of INCONVENIENT children. Murdered. While feminists falsely claim a constitutional right to murder-on-demand …  instead of humane birth control. Silence.


From the crowd of mostly white faces the art of debate was lost. The focus was on Trump and Kavanaugh.

Provocateurs regressed to adolescent name-calling and “body blocking” the opposition with cries of Russia. Russia. Russia. [see Putin’s THUMB is on the scale]

When asked to explain and/or defend their ad hominem attacks (like El stupido) Stupidity reigned … on their side.

The lack of cogent argument revealed the extent of brain damage pervading this crowd of insurgents.

The few who want dialogue are rare – not more than 3 or 4. Still, after measured debate, they walk away, head shaking, dumb-struck that we cannot see the error of our ways.


Experienced leaders masquerade as part of the crowd, pretending to be Christians … religion is an important question/challenge. You must be exposed as a narrow-minded Christian. Others pretend to be Republicans who voted – “sadly” – for  Trump and his HATE machine.


One 30-something fellow was a “peace conflict mediator”. “Instead of COMPLAINING“, he asked, “What are WE doing to make a difference.


An older woman pondered the statement that our own should come before open borders and the financial hardship they cause with over crowded schools, hospitals and social services.

Refusing fellowship in her One World, GLOBAL community, she struggled to respond …. and walked away.

Others in the crowd of Fascists included Sandi Bachom (a You Tube ‘intrepid” video-grapher).  As she filmed the opposition, profanity spewed from her mouth. Anger management anyone?


There was a woman, HOPPING mad at two women holding a “Trump 2020” banner. She chanted , “Trump for Prison, 2019 the worst President we’ve ever seen“. Her apoplexy continued with a sneering : Oh, yeah – Trump’s  ” Helped the stock market.” Then, she slinked away with  “Real Jews don’t support Nazis.

Fascists. Nazis – their two favorite words. Unable, unwilling to defend or explain how that represents the Trump supporters. But, ad hominem attacks need no defense. When challenged, walk away with “I won’t let you trick me!

Video- Part 1 – A look at the crowd that gathered in HATRED for all things Trump.

Part 2 – Scott Stringer. NYC’s Comptroller, who some day wishes to be mayor, ranted from the stage against all things Trumpian; pleasing this fascist crowd of potential voters. He preached to the choir.

Part 3- Patriot Jim dialogued with a few – not many –  of the insurgents. While some couldn’t manage a coherent exchange, You Tube reporter Barely Informed With Elad was on-the-spot; deftly engaging the NARAL crowd with facts they did not wish to hear.

Protest over, all left with ears FULL of “Support NARAL”. “Stop Kavanaugh”. “Impeach Trump”. VOTE! FEMINAZIS UNITE!  UNITE FOR JUSTICE!

Are you willing to challenge the Left when they gather. (Which is OFTEN) Are we/you/ all of us to be silent. To “Make nice”. Or shall we finally and FIRMLY speak out.

Now is the time to decide. As elections draw near, to stop the RED (Commie) Tide – VOTE!!

JERICHO WALK 2018 FOR illegal RAVI RAGBIR – NO DEPORTATION

January 29, 2018. Outside NYC Federal Plaza.

Ravi Ragbir, 43, was arrested Jan. 11, 2018 during a scheduled appointment with federal officials. Ragbir worked as the head of the New Sanctuary Coalition, an advocacy group assisting people facing detention and deportation.
He had been granted permanent residency in 1994, but it was revoked after a wire fraud conviction six years later. SO, on this day, they gathered outside the Federal Building

I covered the Jericho Walk previously in 2011. Led by Ragbir they marched ’round and ’round the Federal Building – SEVEN times –  as in the Walls of Jericho and looking like Fascisti every time they paused to do their HEIL salute. (picture from 2011 walk).

IMG_0482 copy

“Ravi Ragbir, New Sanctuary’s organizer, in addition to being a well-known immigrant rights activist in the New York metro area, is himself an immigrant at risk of deportation. He is also from the War Resisters League” Inside Immigrant Prisons

https://newsanctuarynyc.files.wordpress.com/2011/05/ravi-1.png?resize=418%2C255

In 2011, Ravi Ragbir (lower left in screen grab) spoke defiantly about being in the U.S. ILLEGALLY.

Now, in 2018, under arrest and finally facing deportation, his Sanctuary Movement cohorts walked the Jericho Walk, sans Ragbir, around the Fed Building .

SILENTLY reciting the Jericho Prayer to show solidarity with their “immigrant brothers and sisters.


The JDL was there,too, in support of American Immigration Law. (video is of 2018 walk).

The JDL presence caused a few of the Sanctuary Prayer-Walkers to behave in contradiction to their SILENT Walk instructions: Walk around building. Say silent prayer 7 times and when you stop, raise “Heil” hands in front of Fed Building. BE SILENT.A young female walker (dressed all in black) assaulted one JDL member by ripping his sign. (beginning at 4:02 in video)

After an older woman accused them of being “uneducated Trump Voters” (starting at 3:20) another malcontent (an older fellow in blue hoodie) was VERY vocal (not silent at all) as he tediously taunted with, “Fake News. Yes, Fox Fake News. Believe your alternative facts  … Babies don’t break laws … Keep America WHITE Again“.
Then there was the press. THEIR press. Eager to record this sacred gathering in support of DACA.
One familiar photographer, Sandi Bachom, got her 15 minutes last year when she went AGAINST Mayor de Blasio’s failed attempt at shutting down the Central Park Hansom Cabs. She got that one right. ONE. The rest of the time she’s out cheer-leading for every Hard Left campaign she can cover.

Today she should have just filmed – instead of her unfortunate attempts at ‘gotcha’ reporting (in the video at 1:31) : “Make America Great Again? Getting rid of all immigrants. Who told you this, Donald Trump? Where’d ja read that, on Brietbart? Where did you  first hear about it (Ragbir) I never heard about it til last week ….Where’d ja hear about it? Ja hear about it on Info wars? Alex Jones? You know what that is?” Getting NO where with such embarrassing questions, she slank away with a “thank you”.
Meanwhile, the JDL held their ground while quietly protesting as the Jericho protestors walked 7 times around the building. Other than the bad-players in the walk, it was a very quiet event.

Later that afternoon: Manhattan judge orders immigration activist Ravi Ragbir released from custody 

A federal judge ordered immigration activist Ravi Ragbir be released from custody on Monday, granting him a temporary reprieve from deportation to his native Trinidad and Tobago.

In a seven-page decision, Manhattan Federal Court Judge Katherine Forrest wrote that Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents had violated Ragbir’s rights to due process.

“The court finds that when this country allowed (Ragbir) to become a part of our community fabric, allowed him to build a life with and among us and to enjoy the liberties and freedom that come with that, it committed itself to allowance of an orderly departure when the time came, and it committed itself to avoidance of unnecessary cruelty when the time came,” Forrest wrote.

“By denying (Ragbir) these rights, the government has acted wrongly.”

She wrote that Ragbir was “entitled to the freedom to say goodbye” — indicating the activist still faces eventual deportation. [NY Daily News]

The Constitution commands better,” says Manhattan Federal Court Judge Katherine Forrest. (really?)
Encouraged by Mayor de Blasios’s Sanctuary City Movement, this Manhattan Federal Court Judge ignored U.S. Immigration Law, supporting those who have no respect for the Rule of Law. Anarchy? Is that the ticket?

Women’s March NYC 2018 … They’re baaack…

January 20, 2018. Columbus Circle. The march was scheduled for 11:30 am (so I thought).

Arriving early (10:30) I saw the hoards – ‘eloi’ ascending from the subterranean depths —

 … “sheeple” dragging themselves from 60th street up to 71st st, past Trump International Tower.

Happy lemmings laughing their way up Broadway

pink pussy hats – oh my

Read that eventually the Hate Trump Fest stretched all the way to 86 st – final tote 200, 000 (really?)

I wound up leaving around 1:30 … before the march finally took off … but I don’t think I missed anything. Seemed like I saw it all walking up Broadway.

Part 1- Flickr Slideshow:

DSC_1843

The crush of bodies. So many foolish WHITE people.

People of color?  a few ‘midst this gathering of UWS whites.

 So many dilettantes in love with Socialism.

Teachers.

Students.

Mothers.

 Children. (Who needs a father when Mom is in charge.)

Young and old  …. WHITE people.

Snarky signs and chants, announcing how much they STILL hate Trump.

A group belly-ache – moaning of imagined slights in a world where THEY are the privileged. THEY are the successful women of the 20th and 21st century and where THEY are the NAZIS.

Part 2 Flickr Slideshow:

DSC_2001

Whatever they wish, they CAN achieve. No one holding them back but themselves.

HY-PO-CRITES …. with too much time on their hands … teaching the little children.

VIDEO short compilation: 

THE VIDEO: January 20, 2018. NYC. approx. 10:45, outside Trump International Hotel (as the lemmings worked their way from 60th st to 71st ( the entrance for the march) Another view was at the subway exit- the programmed “eloi” ascending from the depths – met by an Pro Trump/Ivanka flag.

Then we crossed to the Central park side of Columbus Circle where the JDL and friends assembled in support of President Trump, EXPOSING sharia-loving Linda Sarsour. They were surrounded by vociferous marchers with their anti- trump signs, obsessed with their hatred for Trump – missing the real message – marching for women abused around the world.

There were those who supported President Trump .

Their signs made the “NICE” people – who march – go INSANE.

 A two-sided flag: Trump in 2020 and Ivanka in 2024 greeted the protestors.

Part 3  Flickr Slide show: On the Central Park Side of Columbus Circle, the JDL and friends held their Pro – Trump signs and flags high above the heads of these STOOPID pussy-hatted protestors.

DSC_2124

 Always a day for celebrities to get out and make speeches. But, was surprised that a woman standing beside me – in the park- having just lobbed a couple of verbal swipes at the guy holding the Trump in 2020 flag – was Christie Brinkley – with her daughter. (Brinkley’s hat says LOVE.)

Part 4. Flickr slideshow. Never managed to get a full-faced picture of Brinkley (whatever) Finishing this bunch of pics with more signs and the police as they WAITED for the delayed march to begin.

DSC_2115

In conclusion: what was missing- as always – is AWARENESS that there are women in this world, suffering under Islam, who actually NEED their support; their help. This young woman – CLUELESS.

Women in Muslim countries without freedoms, rights and safety. The book “Breaking The Chains”. Where is the outrage for the women and children who suffer under Islam. (Not Here)

The homosexuals who suffer under Islam – No outrage here either.

Islam is The Beast. Sharia to be feared. But, not according to these NASTY women.

The voices of women suffering under Islam are silenced by the ROAR of privileged American women … ranting against TRUMP.

The Elite women of the West turn a blind eye and deaf ear to those who suffer in the 21st century …. proudly sporting graphic, snarky signs.

CRICKETS as they joyfully marched down the streets of Manhattan.

The foolishness of the ignorati.

I’m not impressed (though clearly THEY are).

So many STOOPID people with PUSSY hats (and pom-poms hats?)

Pathetic

March4Trump vs Anti-Trump Protest – a Noisy Meet-Up NYC

MARCH 4, 2017 was a busy, busy day.  March4Trump Rally at Trump Tower vs Standing Rock Anti Trump leftists at NYPL – 42nd st.

March4Trump Patriots gathered to Support Our President.

This is a Pro-America rally in support of our President and to show our American pride. Wear your USA and Trump gear. Bring your American flags, signs and pride. This will be a peaceful rally.

                                                          VS

Standing Rock Climate Leftist Loons and their Comrades-in-arms

This was a National Uprising anti-Trump March

Six days before the national Rise with Standing Rock mobilization in Washington, DC, march on Trump Tower (on 5th avenue) to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline and its threat to the Standing Rock Sioux, their sacred lands and clean water. We will rally at 1:00 pm, then march at 2:00. The march will begin in front of the New York Public Library and go to Trump Tower and beyond.

Back to NYC. For me, it all began at 1 pm. 42nd St. N.Y. Public Library  at Fifth Ave. March 4th for Standing Rock.  It was COLD. Windy and very cold. But, no matter, there were many dedicated malcontents hanging and waiting for the protest march to Trump Tower.

The march to Trump Tower was set to start at about 2 pm. While waiting, there was lots of music. In spite of the cold, the musicians seemed to manage.

Including a familiar pro-Trump patriot.

Never dull, visually: Donald Puppets, expected.

And disenchanted, brain-washed millennials like this mother and her dutiful spawn.

Always, disappointed to see such sweet children sent down this path of global, anti-Americanism.

The themes and complaints from the Leftists were many, as the Flickr slide show reveals:

DSC_8465

Couldn’t walk with them – still dealing with my plantar churl – so bussed it to 56th street where I caught up with the March4Trump Rally.


Surprised to locate them at 57th street, a block from Trump Tower. The police had moved them further from the tower (and these are the GOOD guys!)


Scheduled from Noon to 3 pm, it was about 2:30, and they had a solid group of patriots assembled. Diverse as always, NOT a group of WHITE supremacists. Never.

 

Considering the COLD, and CONTRARY to the odd media count of only 125, this late in the rally I saw a  healthy turnout. The March4Trumpers still filled the block.

They were in the midst of a SPIRITED exchange with some anti-Trump stragglers (who obviously had not gone to the library).

The police kindly reminded the anti-Trumpers (who politely resisted) that they must go to their assigned location at 55th and Fifth. SLOWLY they agreed to go back to 56th st., puppets and all.

From the NYPL on 42nd street, to 57th and Fifth, found a LOUD show of Support or Resistance (depending on whose side they were on) with  signs, shouting and cheering.

It was a civilized exit EXCEPT for the rude finger-jabbing from this well-dressed “lady”.  She very much enjoyed flipping off the PRO-Trumpers.

 

Becoming a bit shy once she saw my camera.

See Flickr side show of both sides  at Trump Tower

DSC_8648

Typically from the LEFT, their strolling musicians brought a bit of NOLA Mardi Gras to the scene. I must admit it was pleasing to the ear.

In conclusion, as I looked for media recaps, found this report from the NY Post. It mentions the separating of the opposing factions before I arrived .

Pro and anti-Trump rallies collide at Trump Tower – NY Post

Pro-Trump picketers and anti-Trump protesters collided in Midtown Saturday, but there was no clashing beyond competing chants.

About 125 President Trump fans, many wearing Trump masks, flocked to Trump Tower, where they chanted “Build that wall!” and “USA.” Some carried signs that read “If you don’t like him, leave,” and “Jail Obama & Soros.”

A faction of 50 protesters met the Trump supporters at noon at the Fifth Avenue intersection. To the tune of “Frosty the Snowman,” they sang, “Donnie the con man.” They held signs with pictures of Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin that read “Investigate the Bromance.”

Cops separated and dispersed both groups after an hour.

++  Also, found a video dealing with that relocation of the March4Trumpers ++

Another day on the streets of Manhattan. The Left never rests. Neither should we. March on. March on.

Linda Sarsour Leads A Day Without A Woman Strike NYC

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

Banner4.png

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

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

A second post will follow soon.

Israeli Apartheid Week 2017 – Columbia University

This year the 13th Annual Israeli Apartheid Week took place all around the world between March – April 2017. Israeli Apartheid Week is organized by an international network of grassroots solidarity groups, unions and activists.

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

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

short video:

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

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

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

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.

NOT My President Day Leftists return to Columbus Circle NYC

Presidents’ Day. NYC.  Feb. 20, 2017. RENAMED (by the rabid Left) NOT MY PRESIDENT DAY


Location: Start at Columbus Circle. Assemble outside Trump International Hotel. 61st St & Central Park West. Time: 12pm – 4pm


This was announced as a peaceful demonstration. A rally, not a march (though plenty of Leftards marched up Broadway)

There was a congressional recess on February 20th that aligned with President’s Day. SO, “Let’s rally while our federal representatives are back in town and remind them who they represent.”


But, today was NOT just any Presidents Day.

Officially, the holiday is called Washington’s Birthday, to honor the first American president, George Washington. The date was established by Congress with the Monday Holidays Act, which went into effect in 1971.

But,  just say “President Trump” and watch the temper tantrums from the Left begin.

.
That’s all they needed to “gather like children”, screaming , “Trump is NOT my President.”  Pathetic.

                                                   (click to enlarge)
AMERICA , however, did not remain silent. There were pockets of confident patriots scattered from 60th to 65th st.


Not just ‘white’ America the Left loves to smear with cries of racism.


People of color. Diversity. THIS is what democracy looks like.

Polite (mostly). FIRM in their convictions that Donald  Trump IS our President. YOU LOST. Get over it!


Heading towards the subway, I felt weary from yet another YUGE temper tantrum. So much snarky ill-will.


Yet, the civilized street debates offered up by those brave patriotic Americans, also left me encouraged.


Kudos to the patriots who had the courage to stand amongst so many smug Fools and Tools and retained their composure. Bravo.


For the Leftards, who suck the life out of everything, while preaching hatred for all things Republican: a major Razzie award to you all.


Where is MOM when you need her.


“Time out.” “Go To your Room.” (if only that would work)

Video Playlist: 7 short vids – 4  are the patriot street debates

After the Rally, the Leftists filled their Face book and Twitter feeds with the expected self congratulation. BUT so did the Patriots!!

Thank you to EVERYONE that came out. We made a stand and it was great. The Spirit of ’76 was alive yesterday and we totally messed up the libs day. So proud of everyone!

By the way, the next event will be on March 4th – I believe at Trump Tower. It’s called “March 4 Trump” and they will be happening in several cities. Thanks again.

The LEFT says they’re winning. Yet, after reading their “mission statement”, methinks hubris may sink their ship (Hoping)

Face book statement on WHY they rallied for NOT MY PRESIDENT Day:

Donald Trump is literally our President, but figuratively, he has attacked every value New Yorkers embody and does not represent our interests. We will be staging a rally at Columbus Circle to protest the un-American policies of the current White House:

– He plans to cut federal funding to our state in an attempt to turn us against our immigrant population, funneling money away from important public institutions.

– He wants to use our tax money to build a wall that no one wants.

– He attacked our Muslim communities and instituted an Islamophobic religious ban.

– He approved a pipeline that threatens to destroy sacred lands.

– His administration opposes a woman’s right to choose and purged the White House website of information pertaining to police brutality and LGBTQ rights.

– His party doesn’t take climate change seriously and undermines our state’s efforts to combat it.

Donald Trump stands against the progress we have worked hard to enact. He does not represent our interests. He was voted in by a minority of the American public but governs as if there’s no resistance. But there is — and on February 20th, we will honor previous presidents by exercising our constitutional right to assemble and peacefully protest everything Donald Trump stands for.

“We Were Strangers Once,Too” – Immigration Smart Art – Times Square

Feb 14 thru March 5th, 2017 – Duffy Sq (46th and Bdwy) – NYC – Valentines Day means Peace. Love. And never waste a moment to preach to the masses with Smart Art”: “We Were Strangers Once, Too”(Barack Obama) is easily a product of Agitprop 101. (no need to sign up – brought to you ‘free-of-charge’ by your local art committee)

Just what I would expect from these public-funded committees. Our tax dollars at work, approving ODD ART projects with a politically correct MESSAGE.

Smart Art –  de rigueur — if you please

A curiosity that requires maps and guides absolutely

The installation designed by “The Office for Creative Research” beat out several others to be the winner of this year’s Times Square “Valentine Heart Design” Competition. The exhibit is about 10 feet high and features 33 poles inscribed and colored to represent the different places where some of the foreign-born NYC residents came from. As visitors move around the sculpture, they get a different perspective. Once they arrive at the designated spot, a heart is revealed.”

dsc_7652However,  I was on my way to the “I am a Muslim, too” rally. No time to ponder, wander nor wade through those poles. Deciphering this IMMIGRANT friendly ART installation was not high on my bucket list.

Perhaps “We Were Strangers Once, Too” was all too easy to explain, translate, decipher. Smart Art to educate the masses by asking (subliminally of course) ” WHY does that racist Donald TRUMP – POTUS 45-  HATE Immigrants?” SO, make your hearts light up by REMEMBERING, in the words of Barack Hussein Obama – POTUS 44 – that,  “We Were (ALL) Strangers Once, Too.” (whatever)

 Next  stop, was 48th street and “I Am a Muslim,Too“, Part Deux
