Stand Up For America (In New York City!) Union Square May Day Counter-Demonstration
American Rattlesnake ^ | April 23, 2011 | Gerard Perry

Posted on 04/23/2011 6:06:26 AM PDT by OddLane

May Day is upon us, and this year we can once again look forward to the spectacle of thousands of people who were not invited here, don’t belong here, and certainly contribute nothing of value to our society, demanding their “rights.” And by “rights,” I mean wealth extracted from taxpaying, American citizens and transferred to a resentful, greedy consortium of Marxists and officially sanctioned ethnic grievance organizations.

The good news is that this year, unlike in the past, New York Ice will be able to combat the gaseous Zapatistas, the Salvadorian Communists, the Mexican death cultists, and stupid-looking hipsters with a Guevara fetish. With what? A MEGAPHONE! Yes, after many months of stonewalling, the NYPD has deigned to grant us a sound permit, which means our voices will be heard loud and clear by the throngs assembled in Union Square.

Thanks for the heads up. Would love to be there to help out but I have to work Sunday. Something these spoiled brat leftists rarely if ever do.

No problem.

So long as the word gets out.

Hopefully we'll have a much bigger presence this year.

Last year's rally was a rainout.

I believe there is.

Unfortunately, I don't recall who keeps it at the moment.

Hopefully there'll be counterdemos in other cities, but I want a big turnout for this one.

Andy Sullivan, from Blue Collar Corner-the originator of the 9/11 Hard Hat Pledge-has already committed to being there.

Trump tried this in Fresno County. He wanted to revive the Running Horse golf course project which had been abandoned and was greatly distressed. Along with that he offered to build in downtown Fresno which needs a LOT of help.

But an Asian man from LA owned the 38 acres that Trump needed to build more facilities near the course. He wasn’t a “holdout,” he merely wanted to be paid for his land.

It was strongly tempting to our Fresno city leaders including conservative mayor Alan Autry (Bubba from “In the Heat of the Night”), but after all kinds of wrangling, the owner said he wanted $38K per acre, the going rate for Central Valley farm land with water rights. The Donald wanted Fresno City/County to condemn the land using eminent domain, but both entities said no despite the prestige and money it would have brought us.

I was always proud of them for standing up for the Constitution in a state that seems to want to ignore or repeal our founding document. God bless them all.

Or, you could post the details right here. You know, as a service to FReepers.

Stand Up For America (In New York!)
April 23, 2011By G. Perry Update: The starting time has been moved back to 2 PM. Be sure to adjust your calendars accordingly.

May Day is upon us, and this year we can once again look forward to the spectacle of thousands of people who were not invited here, don’t belong here, and certainly contribute nothing of value to our society, demanding their “rights.” And by “rights,” I mean wealth extracted from taxpaying, American citizens and transferred to a resentful, greedy consortium of Marxists and officially sanctioned ethnic grievance organizations.

The good news is that this year, unlike in the past, New York Ice will be able to combat the gaseous Zapatistas, the Salvadorian Communists, the Mexican death cultists, and stupid-looking hipsters with a Guevara fetish. With what? A MEGAPHONE! Yes, after many months of stonewalling, the NYPD has deigned to grant us a sound permit, which means our voices will be heard loud and clear by the throngs assembled in Union Square.

I highly suggest you come down and make yours heard. Here are the specs:

WHAT: NY ICE’s annual counter protest of the illegals’ demand for amnesty on May 1st

WHEN: May 1st, 2011 (a SUNDAY) at 2pm

WHERE: 14th Street and Union Square East in Manhattan, in front of Phillips Ambulatory Care Center (which is part of Beth Israel)

BRING: Sound amplifiers, including megaphones if you have them! Bring signs that are simple and in BLOCK letters, which are easy to read from afar. ”NO AMNESTY” is a good standby, for example. Bring prepared sound bites for the Press. And, they will try, as usual, to mislabel us as “racists”, and we know that “illegal is NOT a race“.

NOTE: Without us counter protesting, the ONLY visible opinion is the other side’s, and that is the only side the Press can possibly report on and the public can see.

The leftist media rarely if ever reports that communists are behind events like this (esp the so-called "anti-war" rallies), even when they're openly waving communist flags and carrying giant posters of Che. I have photos of a prior Union Sq event where major media were set up right behind the Revolutionary Communist Party group yet they 'somehow' didn't notice them. Same with Workers World Party and the other treasonous SOBs that were there. I'll see if I can find one of the pics to post here. Workers World Party was the org that organized that particular event. Not of word on the evening snooze about it (as usual).

What was Korean War Vet Charlie "Bring Back the Draft" Rangel doing speaking at a PRO-NORTH KOREA Workers World Party event?? Hannity and O'Reilly never quite got around to asking him.

Note: the page (on the Workers World Party website) with this photo has recently been removed.

But here's other evidence of his speaking at the event:

"Among the many speakers were elected representatives—U.S. Rep. Charles Rangel and New York City Council members Charles Barron and Margarita Lopez—who have bucked their party to come out against the war. Barron has also introduced a Troops Out Now resolution in the City Council."--Workers World Party

Workers World Party: From Harlem to mayor’s mansion, marchers say, ''Bring the troops home now!'

"Dear Comrade Kim Jong Il...

With his leadership [Kim Il Sung], the Korean people defeated the Japanese colonial occupation and soon after brought about the first defeat of the U.S. imperialist military machine. ...

Workers World Party values our close, comradely relations with the Workers Party of Korea very highly. We are proud to have known Kim Il Sung as a great leader and a comrade in the international communist movement. ..."

I know.

If you go the original posting on my site you'll find a trove of photos from one of the past May Day events held there and notice a huge FMLN banner.
