"We Were Strangers Once,Too" - immigration smart art - Times Square

Feb 14 thru March 5th, 2017 - Duffy Sq (46th and Bdwy)- NYC - Valentines Day. Peace. Love. Never waste a moment to preach to the masses: "We Were Strangers Once, too"(Barack Obama)

Just what I would expect from  these public-funded committees that seem to only approve ODD ART projects.

A curiosity - that may never make sense -  Of course

de rigueur (a must

Since I was on my way to "I am a Muslim, too", no time to ponder, wander nor wade through those poles; to READ and decipher this IMMIGRANT installation. (Not high on my bucket list)

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.


Perhaps "We Were Strangers Once, Too" was meant to ask HOW racist TRUMP could HATE Immigrants!

"I am Muslim, Too" Fools and Tools Return to Times Square

I am Muslim, too has returned proclsiming across Times Square: We Stand With American Muslims!



An I Heart Muslims event organized by the Foundation For Ethnic Understanding — a coalition of religious groups led by record label founder Russell Simmons, Rabbi Marc Schneider (and others)

1486586933833

The crowd was jammed, of course, with all the  UWS (upper west side) and Brooklyn Liberal Jews. Signs advertising their blind obedience with "I am a Jew. Today, I'm a Muslim too' and  Muslims, of course, filled out the crowd..

Otherwise- the claim by comic, Dean Obeidallah (the Muslim MC) that we were surrounded by a SEA of Brown faces [stretching to 57th st] was GREATLY exaggerated.[See more in Flickr
slideshow]




But, how else would Dean be able to lead with his fake-news punch-line LIE, that Trump's Florida audience had been a sea of angry white faces filled with HATE. (obviously he didn't see the black trump supporters in Melbourne, Florida. Sitting proudly behind trump, with signs held prominently towards the cameras.

BTW- co hosting with Obeidallah was lesbian, Jewish comic, Judy Gold. Her level of ignorance re Islam and its deathly intolerance for homosexuals obviously runs DEEP. Nope. the truth is always inconvenient.


SO - onward  and upward with I am a MUSLIM, Too - Part Two. Starting things out was the comic co-hosts who screamed us into auditory hell, followed by that that great humanitarian, Def jams' own Russell Simmons.





Simmons gave a speech to be expected,  'We are here, unified, because of Donald Trump, so we won’t speak too harshly of him tonight – today. We want to thank him for bringing us together. Middle America' has been misled. The seeds of hate that were small, and maybe just ignorance, cannot be watered. That hate cannot grow'. Anti-Trump, Pro- Muslim. Yeah, that's the ticket.



Susan Sarandon
.
The token STAR of the event, gave a DEEP-voiced speech (my god- what happened to her voice) Pro-forma leftist blather as she railed against Trump's America destroying the constitution and ending with 'We will fight hatred with love' and OF COURSE, I am a MUSLIM, too.

 


Rabbis and pastors - imams, a Sikh, a Buddhist, Episcopal, Presbyterian, Mennonite, Seventh Day Adventist, Baptist and Hindu - all gave short speeches praising Islam.




As did Rabbi Marc Schneier (President Foundation For Ethnic Understanding) who twice in one short speech proclaimed, I am a Muslim, Too , followed by a sequence of Takbirs (Allah is Greater) ... [1;13 in the video]



Ashamed of being Americans in what they claim to be an INTOLERANT America.



Local politicians and civil rights advocates, too. Parading their ignorance of Islam's INTOLERANT history towards Judaism and Christianity, even NOW in the 21st century. No matter what the historically intolerant facts reveal about Islam, they shouted - each one of them - I AM A MUSLIM, TOO.



So, as the pathetic display of naive inclusiveness and good will continued for the cameras, we heard the required Muslim prayers; allahu akbars and takbirs from the stage . (even got the extra treat of some prayers at the side of the stage)


 

Linda Sarsour, Brooklyn-born Palestinian-American activist,  “I am unapologetically Muslim, all day, every day,” she told the cheering crowd. “I am not afraid because fear is a choice; it is not a fact. So today I ask you, in the true grit and spirit of a New Yorker, that you choose courage in the face of fear.”

 


Sarsour was also touted as one of the proud organizers of the DC Women's march .

Fist bumping and ONE finger umma pumping Sarsour. The symbolism did not go unnoticed.



Sarsour BTW resurfaced after seeming to be persona non grata at some recent Muslim pressers down town. But, here she was  - front and center -  along with intifada NYC's Debbie Almontaser.
nyc-intifada-copyright

The media war for the hearts and minds of a naive America, whose desire to Love Muslims (Islam is off the table), this circus was the darling of the media for about 4 hours on Sunday, Feb 19.



A circus that will continue to play across the country, dominating the media.  Enjoyed. Unchallenged.



As long as the Hate Trump machine rolls on, these LOVE fests will continue. Appearing soon at a school, college and artistic venue near you.



The Future is a terrible thing to waste.

Anti-Israel Groups Protest Emergency Rally For Israel at Columbia Univ

Monday- Feb 13, 2017 - 6:30- Columbia Univ. Danny Danon, the Israeli Ambassador to the UN was invited to speak at Columbia University.

16601997_673110009535462_4931632187068676392_o

However, anti-Israel groups were planning a protest to disrupt the event.

file_000

SO...there was an Emergency Rally For Israel :

Due to their pressure, Columbia administration imposed a last-minute restriction on the event's attendance preventing many Israel supporters and other interested parties from hearing the ambassador's speech.

Wait listed  means .... NO ADMITTANCE !


 

Let us show the UN ambassador of the only Middle East democracy a warm welcome. Let us show our support to Students Supporting Israel at Columbia University - SSI Columbia who organized this event.

Let us send a message to the Columbia administration that the university's responsibility is to protect and encourage free speech and civil discourse instead of restricting it.

And let us show anti-Israel hate groups that false and bigoted messages will not prevail. This is a non-partisan pro-Israel, pro free speech event!.

 Flickr slide show:

 

What we saw outside (and others inside) was predictable. They did not fail to agitate.  The SJP .... and others.... were there to SHUT DOWN Free Speech.



[video -the confrontation that went on outside]



Saw them assemble to march  at approx. 6:30 and then- as they began marching back and forth in front of Lerner Hall- they grew in numbers.



Glutting the sidewalk. Jamming egress for anyone just trying to walk by.  And SHOUTING. CHANTING. Hateful. Nasty. Smug. Shrill.



Eventually the police brought more barricades- to clear the center of the public sidewalk. But, the noise pollution continued, unabated,



while other kuffeya-clad REGISTERED GUESTS continued to gain entry.



INSIDE- as predicted- was the shut Danon down phase two.



SHOUT and SHOUT and SHOUT so he can't speak. not answer questions. after all- someone might hear the TRUTH. These fascist thugs can't have that - EVER



And Columbia? Shame on you. SHAME SHAME SHAME



FROM LEFT: their Press release, video, and photos re the protest can be found at:

I conclude with this buoyant response: Allyson Levy February 14 at 8:34am ·


Last night the pro Israel voice won....Danon got to speak, and the anti-semites were left to chant to a glass wall....AM YISRAEL CHA
I




Right on!

National "Day Of Action" (Commie Style) Grand Central Station - NYC

Feb 15, 2017. Grand Central NYC. A  National "Day of ACTION".



Arranged by those lovable Fascists, the "NY Jews 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)




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. ++

We The People Support Our New President - Rally at Trump Tower - NYC

Feb. 5, 2017- Noon - Outside Trump Tower Fifth Avenue. It was cold. It was SUPER BOWL Sunday. But, that did not keep the patriots at home.



Only problem, couldn't hear or see the speakers. Otherwise, it was a Super Rally on Super Bowl Sunday.


I arrived a few minutes after twelve, and first thing I  heard was chanting "refugees are welcome here". Did the pro-Trump Rally find a way to use the Lefist's chants --- as a hook for the press?  Nope. A few LOUD hard-core anti-Trumpers were on hand .... chanting away.



Moving on to the end of this block, between 55th and 56th streets, I was pleased to see the many pro-Trump rally signs. Eager. Happy. Already scoped out by the press. Cameras on tripods ready to film the action.



This was a nice turnout- kudos to the organizers. Visually the signs did not disappoint.



The enthusiasm was infectious. 
 

Someone even brought a Donald Doll to the festivities



At the other end of the rally, the pro-Trumpers ....

.... They had a spirited exchange with the anti-Trumpers and the press, of course, drifted that direction.


AFSI 
[Americans For a Safe Israel] was there. Reporting on this enthusiastic rally....


On a sunny but chilly Sunday afternoon, supporters of President Trump braved the cool weather and swarms of tourists on Fifth Avenue in front of Trump Tower, to tell the world:

DONALD TRUMP IS OUR PRESIDENT AND MUST BE GIVEN A CHANCE TO LEAD.

Since President Trump's inauguration, there have been hundreds of anti-Trump rallies around the country, many of them violent and filled with language not worthy of the gutter. Yesterday, those who believe in democracy and the rule of law said, "enough is enough." President Trump was elected democratically, according to the laws of our country, and it is time for the entire nation to accept it.

AFSI's Co-Executive Director, Helen Freedman, was one of the many speakers at the pro-Trump rally. Carrying an Israeli flag, she emphasized that the USA and JerUSAlem are entwined, since USA makes up the middle letters of Israel's capital city. She also stressed the promises Trump made while campaigning regarding moving the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and keeping a hands-off policy regarding settlement building. The crowd was with her all the way.

Organizers of  the pro-Trump Rally said they came to honor President Trump and to show support for the "electoral college process AND to show pride in America." That they did.  Bravo!
