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.

“The Murder of Leon Klinghoffer” Met Opera Premiere & the 100-Wheelchair Caravan Protest

October 20, 2014. NYC. 100 wheelchair caravan protest outside the Metropolitan Opera.


The press conference began at 5 PM. There was LOTS of press. The media came out to watch, listen, film, take pictures, even though they did not intend to abandon the approved PC narrative defending The “Death’ of Leon Klinghoffer as ART.

Anti-Semitic ‘art’ is A-OK when done by the LEFT. They can OFFEND.

WE are expected to be SILENT (otherwise) … we might ‘offend’…

Part One Slide show is of the crowd, the wheelchairs and the signs. The crowd was calm but determined, standing firm for hours across from the Met. Listening. Cheering. Protesting. SILENT NO MORE!
[gigya src=”http://www.flickr.com/apps/slideshow/show.swf?v=71649″ width=”500″ flashvars=”offsite=true&lang=en-us&page_show_url=/photos/pamelahall/sets/72157648707856448/show/&page_show_back_url=/photos/pamelahall/sets/72157648707856448/&set_id=72157648707856448&jump_to=” allowFullScreen=”true” ]

The speakers were fabulous. All speaking out in opposition to the OFFENSIVE and boldly anti-Semitic ‘opera’ debuting at the Met this night. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani was the keynote speaker.
Other major speakers  included Congressman Peter King (R) who currently serves as Chairman of the Sub-Committee on Counter-terrorism and Intelligence and formerly served as Homeland Security Chairman, Queens Borough President Melinda Katz, Former NY Governor David Paterson, Criminal Defense Attorney Ben Brafman, Rabbi Joseph Potasnik, ZOA President, Morton Klein, Congressman Eliot Engel and NY State Assemblyman, David Weprin AND many, many more.

Part TWO Slideshow is of the speakers.

NEXT is the the Video playlist of ALL the speakers, representing a cross-section of religion and politics. No dainty versions of the truth. Honest. Sobering. Thoughtful speeches. Intense, yet, inspiring. Clearly, we can NO LONGER “Make Nice”, trying not to offend, with the hope of “keeping the peace”.  We must NOT REMAIN SILENT.

NEVER AGAIN Means NEVER AGAIN.

We are ALL Leon Klinghoffer!
