Close The Camps, Extinction Rebellion, Trump 2020 clash in Washington Sq

October 10, 2019. Washington Square.As I arrived, I noticed Extinction Rebellion had set up booths for the week of rebellion.

However, this was a 3-part protest; three diverse groups. Are we really BEYOND Politics?

Under the arch, we found the Silent Protest lead by Rise and Resist: “No Raids! Close The Camps.

In the middle, by the fountain, we had the Trump 2020 Patriots SURROUNDED by the usual leftists who hang in Washington Square). It’s all about politics.

Side note, I saw a Sukkot (sukkah) booth being erected during all of this madness, free of any harassment.

Part 1 video – Found the silent vigil for Close the Camps under the arch. Turned to see the the Trump 2020’s flag, surrounded by Washington Square Lefties. As usual, there was profanity from the left as they harassed the buoyant Trumpers. Of course, the leftists did not like the Trump 2020 flag. After some “playful” exchanges, the Bob Avakian REVOLUTION Marxists joined the circle around the Trumpers – and then an electric scooter and skateboards – round and round they went. While the police just watched. No harm. No foul, so the silliness rolled on.

Part 2 video : From the Close the Camps vigil back to the Trump 2020′s. Trump Trump Trump and F-Trump’s back and forth as the anti-Trumper  skateboards jumped into the circle. Then a familiar Black Trumper took on an obnoxious lefty and the black skateboarders with a calm verbal exchange. As always he is solid!

Close the Camps, Trump 2020 and Extinction Rebellion. Lots of activity, but the most disruptive seems to be Extinction Rebellion. While covering the more tame event in Washington Square, I missed their Times Square chaos. [Facebook]

Extinction Rebellion NYC blocked traffic for nearly two hours in Manhattan’s Times Square, resulting in 62 arrests for civil disobedience. A boat dropped in Times Sq. at the intersection of 44th and Broadway. Rebels surrounded the boat and super-glued themselves on, including 16 year old Nathaniel standing on top with his feet glued. We say no more business as usual. This is a CLIMATE EMERGENCY!  [https://www.xrebellion.nyc/]

It seems …. NO good … will come from these climate anarchists. A comment below illuminates the conflicting issues:

Climate change which started as global freezing was an invention of the old Soviet Union. We are seeing a number of damaging things such as political correctness (also a communist invention from the old Frankfurt School in pre WWII Germany) and of course the complete communist takeover of education in both europe and north America. [] [Geller Report]

The Marxists will not relent, as this declaration of  intent makes clear:

 “We are going to force the government to act, and if we don’t, if they don’t we will bring them down and create a democracy fit for purpose, and yes, some may die in the process,” the movement’s leader says. This is eco-fascism. “Excuse me?” Watson asks, “At what point did Extinction Rebellion go full Manson Family cult?” [Western Free Press]

Rise and Resist started the day, but the Extinction Rebellion (those Marxist Loons) made the larger imprint. Climate insurrectionists deconstructing our culture. our lives. our world. Silence is not the answer. We too must EDUCATE. Fight Back!

Marxists “United in Outrage” fun as Trump Patriots crash protest (9-23-19)

Sept 23, 2019 Bryant Park – NYC  MarxistsUnited in OUTRAGE”. Hosted by Rise and Resist and Refuse Fascism.

Rise and Resist, formed in response to the 2016 US election, is a direct action group made up of both new and experienced activists committed to opposing, disrupting, and defeating any government act that threatens democracy, equality, and our civil liberties. We work collaboratively, creatively, respectfully, and with all the joy we can muster for the health of the people and the planet. [Rise and Resist NYC]

There was a fun twist to the protest when the “Patriots For Trump 2020” crashed the “March of (Out)Rage”. Seems a public park allows for freedom of assembly, on both sides, making those outraged Marxists even more OUT RAGED.

The Marxists did not like sharing their message with the Trump 2020’s.

The battle of the banners quietly ‘raged’ on.

Video 1- Marxists shocked to see Patriots for Trump crashing their anti-Trump protest.

Video 2 –  The Patriots caused the Marxists to plead with the police to remove the patriots from a public park. (Did not happen.)

Video 3 – Two young women of the Leftist persuasion quizzed the Women for Trump on how could they support Trump – based on the 2005 audio tape. When asked, they did not include Clinton, Teddy Kennedy or Uncle Joe Biden in the same discussion, claiming to not know enough …. and …  it didn’t matter.

Video 4 – Marxists vs Asian Americans for Trump as the march leaves Bryant Park.

One of the Marxist leaders of  Rise and Resist, Jay W. Walker, (on the right in picture below) let it be known  he did not like the Trump 2020’s mixing in with their protest.

Jay W. Walker is on the steering committee of the New York chapter of REFUSE FASCISM, a front group for the Revolutionary Communist Party. He is described by co-initiator Sunsara Taylor as a “leader” of REFUSE FASCISM.[1]

Meanwhile, the Trump 2020 Patriots continue to crash these very left-of-center peace-in events. On October 10, 2019, the Marxists held another RAGE-in at Washington Square, joined by Extinction Rebellion AND the Trump 2020’s!. [Link to follow soon]

Anti-Semitism Protest. “Name It. Fight it” at NY City Hall

Sunday. September 22, 2019. At Noon rally gathered outside New York’s City Hall Park to condemn anti-Semitic attacks that have been increasing dramatically in the city. Former Assemblyman Dov Hikind said “I’m asking the mayor to declare a state of emergency here in New York with regard to anti-Semitism.”
Usually, the Marxist groups like Rise and Resist ignore protests supporting Israel. However, today, I saw a couple of Rise-Resisting Marxists join the crowd. I know this because one yarmulked fellow was wearing a “Rise and Resist” T-shirt.
He was joined by a masked female comrade with a mission: she blew SMOKE at the crowd, harassment was key. Unfortunately, the inexperienced crowd was easy prey for the agitator.
They began yelling at the interloper. One woman spit (poor form) and another managed in-the-face fake coughing.
They could have ignored the agitator but today’s meme was “Jews Fight Back” encouraging a nose-to-nose confrontation to burst from within the crowd.“I am a Jew” was heard coming from the instigator as the police removed him from the rally.
As for the actual protest, the demonstrators slammed politicians, the media and even fellow Jews for not caring more about the hateful incidents. Good points. And even though Rise and Resist “Blew Smoke” at the rally, that harassment was confronted, for better or worse, as Jews Fought Back!It was a successful protest with a good turn out, check it out in the Flickr slide show and 4 short videos

Some closing words from The Geller Report: “Demonstrators call for a state of emergency over rising antisemitism in NYC” [Geller Report]

“Under Mayor de Blasio’s incompetent leadership, New York City has become unsafe for Jews. If these attacks were occurring against any other ethnic group de Blasio would be calling in the National Guard.

Perhaps de Blasio is reluctant to protect New York’s Jewish citizens, out of fear of angering his hard-Left constituents? Or maybe de Blasio is just another Jew-hating Leftist?

Demonstrators slammed politicians, the media and even fellow Jews for not caring more about the hateful incidents ….  Mayor de Blasio (needs) to take sweeping action to stop the trend.

“I’m asking the mayor to declare a state of emergency here in New York with regard to anti-Semitism,” Former Assemblyman Dov Hikind said.” [1010wins]

Mr. Mayor, are you back in town? It’s your move…. Listen and LEARN.

Rise and Resist “No Raids. Close The Camps. Abolish ICE” NYC

July 8, 2019 -Grand Central Station- NYC. Rush Hour. The commuters rush to catch their trains, must get home fast, NOT hang around for political rants. But, this was a SILENT “rant” in the middle of the Main Hall.  Yet somehow the silence caught their eye and many chose to pause and watch.

[Face Book] Their message: “Join Rise and Resist in the main hall of Grand Central Terminal in a silent protest. We will address the Trump Administration’s newest attacks on asylum seekers and immigrants, as well as the deaths of refugee children in U.S. custody.”

On June 17, Trump announced (tweeted) that ICE would begin a mass roundup of families that have received deportation orders. The plan is for pre-dawn raids in major U.S. cities. Imagine what this will feel like for the family, friends and neighbors.”

“Five days later, Trump delayed the raids for two weeks, until July 7. But the rhetoric of hate, and the fear of SWAT teams and home invasions, has a chilling effect. This is state terrorism.

“On June 21, news broke about the unsafe and unsanitary conditions in the Customs and Border Patrol prison for children in Clint, Texas. Children were unwashed, unattended, hungry  and sick. We know of 7 immigrant children who have already died in U.S. custody.

The Trump administration is terrorizing asylum seekers and forcibly removing children from their families. Trump is using terror as a tactic to deter immigration. This is immoral and inhumane.

We must object and demand that these policies end. Join us to demand: NO RAIDS – CLOSE THE CAMPS – ABOLISH ICE!” [Face Book]

The two sides faced off, Trumpers vs Rise and Resist Marxists. Read the Marxist flyer below [Click picture to enlarge]

This particular evening the Marxists tried something different. SILENCE while holding 4 banners and standing in a  square. They were countered by Patriots who quietly engaged the passersby, often receiving support and thumbs up.

At one point the Marxists can be heard- breaking the silence- by leading self-congratulatory applause.”

Screen shots from video:

Flash Forward from July 8: Democrats continue to squawk and wail about the ubiquitous tweets and rallies of President Trump. And, always, the anti-American ‘squad’ and their enablers continue to preach their insidious hatred of America, while demanding illegal criminals be allowed to cross OPEN borders into our country. America, they HATE her but LOVE living here.

Now, the latest complaints post how OFFENDED the Socialist cabal is by a crowd of Trump supporters chanting that Somali-born, Ilhan Omar, be sent  back to fix her own country. Don’t deconstruct ours. Amongst so much misunderstanding, this happened (in a press vacuum) :

Journalist Travels to Ilhan Omar’s Homeland to Prove Somalia is Beautiful, Gets Killed by Terrorists – Paul Joseph Watson – Tragedy of cultural relativism strikes again

“While Nalayeh’s death would seem to underline the harshness of Trump’s remarks, it was also a visceral argument for what many understood to be his central point: that perhaps immigrants should be especially grateful to live in the United States,” (Pluralist)

NYC Commies say #Impeach Trump Now – No Kids in Cages

Friday, June 14, 2019, “Trump’s Birthday Protest – No Kids in Cages”

Rise and Resist, dedicated Commies, hosted TWO anti-Trump protests for impeachment on President Trump’s Birthday weekend.

Beginning at Trump International Hotel & Tower New York – Central Park

“Of the many disturbing and illegal actions by this Trump administration, the continued treatment of families at the Mexican border is deeply upsetting… We’re using the opportunity of Trump’s birthday … to demand that folks arriving in the U.S. are treated with dignity and care.” (Rise and Resist)

  Soon a self-described trannie crashed the protest carrying an LGBT Flag for Trump and paraded bare-breasted (which is legal in NYC). However, the metal flag-pole is NOT legal. So the pro-Trump LGBT protestor had to leave the area by order of the NYPD. (video)

Yes, the honest TRUTH can come from the mouths of eccentrics, like this often naked, flag-waving LGBT pro-Trumper.

In tandem, an article written about a gay man; an ex-Democrat:

Pride — with its messages of love, acceptance and self-expression — is a sham, according to conservative gay rights activist Brandon Straka.

The 42-year-old Harlem hairdresser said the gay community turned its back on him once the former “diehard liberal” — who voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016 — switched to the Republican Party.

 ….  Straka said, he won’t be marching in this year’s Pride parade. It’s turned into one big anti-Trump rally.… the LGBT community should be celebrating that we live in a time of true equality. Stop living in fear of a president that celebrates diversity and Pride month.” [NY Post]

The commies do NOT have control of everyone.

Still, it was their protest, so the message from Rise and Resist continues: ” The administration recently reduced much needed aid to Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador … and they are met with racism, brutality, family separation, and inhumane policy.”

“We’re using the opportunity of Trump’s birthday to peacefully draw attention to their plight, and to demand that folks arriving in the US are treated with dignity and care.” [Rise and Resist]

End Day 1 Friday protest

THOUGHTS: “Some Americans will never appreciate America, until after they have helped destroy it, and have then begun to suffer the consequences.”

Saturday, Day Two – June 15, 2019, Foley Sq #ImpeachTrump


Rise and Resist hosted along with other Marxist insurgents this Hate Trump/America rant,  “a public demonstration calling for impeachment hearings in solidarity with events around the country”

” The NYC Coalition partners included Empire State Indivisible, Indivisible Nation BK, Black Lives Matter New York, CREDO Action, By the People, Four Freedoms Democratic Club, Indivisible Activate NYC, Indivisible Queens, Indivisible Westchester Districts 6&7, Upper West Side MoveOn/Indivisible Action Group, Action Group Network” [Face Book]

 Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney  was the celebrity speaker, justifying impeachment with a long list Trump’s crimes; preaching her lies to a choir of fellow travelers. [Video]

.Rise and Resist claimed: “We are taking direct action together for equality, justice, and human rights. We are rising against oppression and tyranny. We are building a better world.”

In the next video, chants. Lots of chants. (some are Marxist versions of Christian songs, sans the religion)

I heard a gay coalition speaker calling for the ERADICATION of all things Republican. “We must get rid of the Republicans. There are no good Republicans. We don’t need Republicans. They are evil.”

However, I didn’t start recording him til  3:22 to 5:15, ending with “Impeach the scum bag”.

The New York City Coalition to Impeach Donald Trump is calling for impeachment hearings in solidarity with events around the country. Donald Trump has taken money from foreign governments, obstructed justice at the FBI and brought us to the brink of nuclear war. We #NeedToImpeach.” [Face Book]

After a full hour of  “President Trump and Republicans are racists” and “Tools of Russia” I took inspiration from the brave patriots who held their ground.

Sadly, the commies continue to appeal to the naive, indoctrinated by their hardcore leaders, dedicated to destroying America.

You are fighting for the destruction of all the freedoms that you enjoy. You are fighting for the utter defeat of your own selves and your own life. You are the most foolish, you are the most evil, foolish, people on Earth. Shame on you!” [Robert Spencer ]
