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.

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:

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

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.

“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)

dsc_7653
Just what I would expect from these public-funded committees. Our tax dollars at work, approving ODD ART projects with a politically correct MESSAGE.

dsc_7645

Smart Art –  de rigueur — if you please

dsc_7649
A curiosity that requires maps and guides absolutely

dsc_7659

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)

National “Day Of Hate” (Commie Style) Grand Central Station – NYC

Feb 15, 2017. Grand Central NYC. A  National “Day of ACTION aka Hate”.

Arranged by those lovable Fascists, the “NY Jewish Voice For Peace”.

Their  face book instructions:, “Meet under the clock, 5;30 . Chants 6 PM. March to Trump tower 6:30” The commuters HATE this use and abuse of a public space. Jammed with thumb sucking Leftards.

(Flickr slide show of the action)

EA8_0707

This was “Jerusalem,Israel”  vs the BDS insanity of  the NY Jews for “Peace”- during Rush Hour. Really. Now? Since the rush hour madness is in full swing. many commuters were aggressive – angry- their tone and body language said it all- as they did a perfunctory excuse me rushing for their trains.

Annoyed that they suffered this preachy knot of anti- Israel, anti- Trump, pro- Islamist  FASCISTI. These are the hard-core militants who hate the America we love.

A short video as I took “a trip “around the Gordian knot- planted Stage Center.

Many, MANY police are pulled off the street to baby sit these insurgents – as they assemble and then marched from Grand Central to Trump Tower. Jew HATING is legal here. Not exaggerating. This is a very familiar crowd. They HATE-hate any thing and anyone that threatens their LEFTARD utopia. LOVE is NOT what they do best. Stir the revolution. That’s the ticket. RISE UP and march us all to the ovens. But LOVE — is just a word.

Hatred of Israel. Jews and America. Make no mistake. That is what they preach. That is what the Love. Smiles coming from the wicked-at-heart  should send chills through your spine. If they win this battle for the hearts and minds of the masses.  Be afraid. Be very afraid. ++
