Marxist Anti-War Protest on MLK Day demands Stop NATO Expansion -Times Sq

Jan. 14, 2023.  Times Square. On a very cold day (about 23 F/ -5 C) our fingers and hands were very cold., but no matter, the protest went on as the Socialist. Marxist, Hard Core Left gathered in Times Square - on Martin Luther King Day - using this day to march against the Imperialist, War-Mongering United States.

Proclaiming this to be a Global Issue, they demanded "Say NO to NATO. STOP U.S. WARS. End all U.S. Wars!"

Statement from Protest: "It is crucial that opponents of the U.S. war machine stand up for peace as the Biden administration and Congress deepen their proxy battle in Ukraine!  In the federal budget that was just passed and signed into law, the U.S. government has committed an additional $45 billion to this effort. In another provocative escalation, the Biden administration announced that it was sending the advanced Patriot missile system to Ukraine -- bringing a catastrophic direct conflict with Russia ever closer."

Video Chants crowd:
" Are you Republican - No!
A Democrat- No.! .... Two wings of the same bird.
"

Just in case you wondered : Capitalism is the enemy.


Next up is Lamis Deek,  a self-described "palestinian"- American lawyer. She is an activist for controversial "palestinian" initiatives and opponent of the State of Israel’s existence. She is a member of a number of anti-Israel and radical-left organizations, including Al-Awda NY: The "palestine" Right to Return Coalition, the Arab Muslim American Federation, and the National Lawyers Guild.

  •  We are not interested in "bi-nationalism
  •  Justice, not identity is our basis

Excerpted Lamis Deek speech transcribed. She told us she represented a GLOBAL War. Lead by an anti-Israel/anti-Zionist contingent. (I'm sorry there was audio difficulty - no wind screen)


"(and) ...resurrected in the past few years ... approved, where their brutal violence  .... across the U.S.  ... where we saw hundreds of troops lying on the borders of Venezuela ...waiting to export their Fascist tactics. When we saw in el Salvador ... Zionists...training in open weapons .... tens of thousands of oppressed el Salvadorians in South Africa. They gained nuclear weapons and shelter and money to the oppressive apartheid regime and then gave asylum to the worst offenders  of .... asylum in South Africa. SO, it is NO exaggeration TODAY that where there is ZIONISM, where there is Israel, there is OPPRESSION. There is White Supremacy. There is violence. And Israel is a fundamental threat to ALL people. (Cheers) And so, it holds true that resistance ... 'palestine', 'palestinian' freedom fighters, fighting for GLOBAL liberation  (cheers) GLOBAL peace, GLOBAL morality and GLOBAL progress (hoots and cheers) and then  'palestine" will be free, from the river to the sea: a chant for ONE LIBERATED 'palestine'.... in occupied land ... a rallying call for GLOBAL Liberation. (cheers) ....the exporter of Global Violence and ....  Global Militarization. But it is a  safe (?) .... it is a wound producing all of that in which the world suffers. And so we take this moment and with honesty, and we must admit a very difficult time in 'palestine' - 'palestinians' are literally being ....and murdered and silenced . ..... we are suffering materially .... and we ask you to HONOR our brothers and sisters who are being murdered - just this morning. And yesterday...and honor 'palestinian' freedom fighters... long live the 'palestinian' resistance. (cheers) Long Live the 'palestinian' Resistance.  ... We ask you, because we understand ... for everybody individually and collectively, these are challenging times because we know that materially, collectively and ideologically there will be NO Global Peace without 'palestinian liberation .... And that you raise the 'palestinian' flag higher  ... inside of  'palestine.' And that you raise for voices, where ever they may be, to demand ( .... ) of apartheid, genocide in 'palestine'  (..........) which threaten the world.  That you also demand ... against the Zionist State .  And that you demand that all 'palestinian' freedom fighters in Zionist dungeons are liberated ... and demand the liberation of 'palestine' from the river to the sea. And we know ...  absolutely exciting times for all of us ... that you remember individually and collectively you are powerful. And remember that no wall is too high, no ocean too wide and no oppression too great to ... the united will of the people . (Cheers) Free Free "palestine". Long Live "palestine". From the River to the Sea. "palestine" will be Free. (Cheers)"

"NATO Expansion - NO! Peace in Ukraine- Yes." as Lamis Deek spoke for GLOBAL recognition of 'palestine' and the eradication of the democratic state of Israel ... and a need for a 'palestinian' global victory. Is this REALLY  call for GLOBAL peace?

NEXT VIDEO  - of course,  Sara Flounders from United National Anti-War Coalition was amongst the many speakers. Sara  is an American political writer and Russia Today reporter[1] who has been active in progressive and anti-war organizing since the 1960s. She is a member of the Secretariat of Workers World Party, as well as a principal leader of the International Action Center. She also frequently writes for Workers World newspaper.

(Sara had no wind screen issues)


.Transcribed Sara Flounders video:

"... not to go backwards, to demands that earlier generations fought for; millions of people in Europe  demonstrated again and again to say "NO to NATO. Disband NATO. Abolish NATO".  So, that's important when we think of the slogans today. Now, I'm part of the United National Anti-War Coalition and on the demands of "NO to NATO" and "STOP U.S. Wars" there are demonstrations this week in more than 50 cities across the U.S. (unclear) That means not only here today, all across the country people are beginning- BEGINNING- to mobilize. Beginning to speak out at this grand theft. Billions. Billions for a new war. Just a few months out of the massive destruction they created in Afghanistan (....??)1:13 a war with years in the planning. Even long before the 2014 Fascist coup. That was a U.S. coup d ├ętat and it was the one reason only to bring in a Fascist ..... to threaten Russia; to bomb Russia and the Russian population of Ukraine; to expand NATO. That's what it's always been about. Now they're doing the same thing today against China. That's what the whole struggle in Taiwan, in South Korea, in Japan...  Japan has just doubled - doubled its military budget. It'll soon be the third largest military power in alliance with the U.S. (for) war on China. So we gotta be talking about all these U.S. wars cause they're at it constantly. They're planning for it. They move the equipment for it. And our unity, standing together, standing in many actions all across the country; working  together and pushing the demands as far as we can go, because these wars (called the) Democrat(ic) party, the Republican party: they're together. There's ONE War Party. It's got two wings, different social base but on the war they will vote together again and again. And it's only ... People's Movements, from the (...)? the Grass Roots Movement that's gonna stop them. "No to NATO. Stop ALL U.S. Wars "(cheers)"

PEACE is a questionable result from these "anti-War" protests. (found a Lamis Deek 2021 video posted on Twitter) where - once again - Lamis is promoting 'palestinian peace' at any COST .... I think, she just might want WAR. A GLOBAL War. ( talk amongst yourselves)

Save the Children Protestors slandered as "Faces of Hate" by NYC Councilman Bottcher

 

On December 19, 2022 the Guardians of Divinity (G.O.D.) respectfully approached NYC Councilman Erik Bottcher's office to demand a public apology for falsely labeling them "Faces of Hate" merely because they opposed the NYPL Drag Queen Story Hour. ( see Bottcher's video from December 17th)

 

He was called out for his LIES and his unwillingness to apologize. But, Bottcher Hid and Lied - again and again-  as he continued his "Faces of Hate"slander and accused them of STORMING his office. ALL LIES.

These videos reveal there was no 'STORMING'. (Video Part 1)

 

.. But, the cowardly Erik Bottcher hid in his office anyway, watching his security cams.( Part 2)

 

.He could see there was NO storming of the building, as did the FNTV cameraman, Ed Quinn. They both continued the 'STORMING' lie, even though there was NO such action.  Requesting entry by knocking on the door is not an act of aggression.

( Part 3 video as the finished and quietly left the building)


FLICKR Slide Show: Once outside the building, the Guardians chalked their message on the sidewalks while Bottcher continued to HIDE inside. The Freedom News TV cameraman, along with the Councilman, continued to fan the flames of hatred with their LIES.

Protest NYC Councilman's office

 Outside , still wondering would the Councilman ever respond, the NYPD showed up. But since no laws were broken, there was no reason for the police to hang around.

(Part 4 video ) Out side Bottcher's office

 

.I was only at the afternoon office event. What transpired that evening, at his apartment, also did not qualify as storming.Holding signs. ringing his buzzer. Calling him out from the street was their right as protestors. Yet,  Bottcher, ever the drama queen, had the NYPD arrest two female protestors who had done NOTHING to support his claims of threatening his safety. AGAIN. HE LIED.

The only real damage done was by one of Bottcher's people who didn't like the chalk on the sidewalk, so he BROKE the phone of a protestor. (A crime ignored by the police.)

Guardians Video that evening


.The Councilman has now used the courts to threaten the protestors with arrest if they come within a certain distance of HIM. He got a judge to give him an ORDER Of PROTECTION.

ARREST INFO -

 

Now THIS is the template for storming, threatening. destruction and death. that was laid down in 2020. The Summer of BLM HATE. We should never forget the summer of 2020 and the lack of concern from the left-media. Those violent perpetrators WALKED.

What took place on the 19th of December - in NYC- day and night was nothing more than legal protesting. Demanding their arrest for protesting  ... Shame, Shame on you, Councilman Bottcher.


"Save the Children. Let the Children Be Children. Why  must Drag Queens read to children. What are they promoting? Let the Kids  Be Kids"

 The Guardians still await for their apology.

Protest Drag Queen Story Hour Returns to 20th St. Library- NOT Right For Kids!

 On Dec 17th, 2022, the Guardians of Divinity returned to protest another Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) What follows are some of the links that support their Save The Children/ Let the Kids Be Kids protests.

"Elite Chicago prep school dean brags about kids handling sex toys in class" [NY Post] [Project Veritas]

.Drag Queen events (see stills from a few Drag Story videos), "WHY is this appropriate for children?"


The devil is acceptable.  But, Christians are NOT.

Please explain Councilman Erik Bottcher ,"WHY is this NOT GROOMING?"


On Dec 17, 2022, the Guardians of Divinity (G.O.D) gathered to protest the Drag Queen Story Hour(DQSH) aimed at very young children.

The NYPD forced them into the street .... which increased the volume of the protest voices since the ANTIFA /Rise and Resist protestors blocked the entrance to the library (and they were VERY loud)

Flickr Slide show - The NYPD and Councilman Bottcher ignored their message:  "Why must Drag Queens read 'identity' books to children. What are they promoting?"

Protest Drag Story Hour - 20th st Lib NYC


.An  unnecessary addition this day was the predictably bare-breasted Crackhead Barney (who was welcomed by the ANTIFA's) and the district Councilman, Erik Bottcher. Bottcher was busily posting to his social media  with NO MENTION of the offensive flasher, CrackHead Barney who announced she would be holding a DQSH outside the library ....  and the ANTIFA protestors welcomed her. (Part 1 of 7)


  CRACK HEAD BARNEY 20th St Flickr pics. [ Slide show link]  Her shtick is so obscene that it's NSFW, so the MSM progs soft pedal her displays.

 


With her breasts flopping out of her costume, "Barney" announced she would be holding a Story Hour on the street, with  the soc/commie/leftists welcoming her... NO matter what she does,

.Does the pornographic Crackhead Barney  represent the pro-DQSH protesters? [crickets] Instead, what the social media/media promoted that day was Councilman Bottcher's "Faces of Hate" mantra .... without addressing , "Are these Drag Queens appropriate for young children?

.AGAIN, the Guardians of Divinity  asked, WHY is it important to expose toddlers to these glittery, bewigged costumed men ---- as though they are a normal part of growing up. Why must these Story Hours teach children about cross-dressing men with books like "The Hips on the Drag Queen Go Swish, Swish, Swish."

This is unnecessary indoctrination. They claim it is not to encourage male children to explore Drag ....but what else will they take away from this. Particularly with the types of books and songs on the line up of ' acceptable" materials.

Unfortunately, Bottcher had one exchange with a protestor that allowed him to social media  loop his 'faces of hate" mantra, that any protest against DQSH's is a hate-fest against LGBTQ+'s  .... and the MEDIA was a willing purveyor of those lies.

But, the Guardians of Divinity are NOT Faces of Hate and feeding the media misleading sound bites led the Guardians to demand an apology from their Councilman. Two Days later they went to the Councilman's office to demand a public apology.

Unfortunately he HID inside and then promoted AGAIN a querulous story that they had stormed the building. The videos in the next post support the Guardians as having respectfully approached the councilman's office. (WHERE he HID.

Sadly, the lies have taken hold. and the children are the losers.

Drag Queen Story Hour Protest at Stavros Niarchos Library in NYC

 December 2022 was a busy month for the Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) protests in Manhattan. (others were held in Queens and Staten island) 


.On Dec 10, 2022, we were at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Library. Leading the protest with signs and chants that begged let the Kids to be Kids, not to aspire to be Drag Queens.

There is lovely  family-friendly children's section. But, what is being read to the children at these DQSH is too often ignored.  Say No to Grooming. Let the Kids be Kids!

.  Stop The Grooming  and Stop the Lies that those who oppose the Drag Queen Story Hours are anti-LGBTQ+. The issues are what is appropriate for CHILDREN.

The libraries, the City Council, the media are all influenced by the Socialist/Marxist/Facist orgs who foster the Big Lie that Save The Children is a cover for White Supremacy; Maga-nuts who hate-on the Gay Community so sadly the libraries are planning more and more DQSH.

.Once inside the 40th Street branch I caught a quick glimpse in the reading room before a librarian started quizzing me...did I have a child.  (see videos)

 Part 1 video

 

.Next two gallery composites were captured by S Miller of the Drag Performer reading. (Still do not know what book was being read)


 
.Part 2 video emotions ran high between the naive parents and the protestors.

  

There was also  a second floor mezzanine with some boisterously vocal teens.

 And then this unfortunately impassioned fellow who swung at the protestors and then landed a punch to the chest to the officer attempting to calm him down. (A swift arrest followed.)

 Part 3 video

Protest at Stavros Niarchos Library Drag Story Hour in NYC

The protest continued outside with sidewalk chalking, chanting and engaging the passersby.  As the one fellow was taken away by the police, one noisy female heckler was separated from the Guardians of Divinity by the NYPD. (Guess they needed some quiet).

All in all, it was a successful protest.

(Three Manhattan reports will follow ... wrapping up  2022 ...)
