MSM Censoring News Again – Thousands of Yemenis protest Trump travel ban at Brooklyn Borough Hall

 

Bodega and deli owners stage 8-hour strike

Thousands of Yemenis and their supporters — waving banners and flags and chanting “USA!” —packed into Borough Hall Plaza Thursday evening to rally, pray and protest the Trump administration’s travel ban targeting Muslims from seven countries.

Numerous elected officials and community leaders, including Public Advocate Letitia James, Comptroller Scott Stringer, City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, Borough President Eric Adams, Council members Jumanne Williams, Stephen Levin, Carlos Menchaca, I. Daneek Miller and Vincent Gentile told the protesters they had their backs.

The Borough President’s Office estimated that roughly 5,ooo joined in, capping a day of action by Yemeni bodega and restaurant owners, who closed shop at noon for an eight-hour strike.

Nasser Nagi, owner of Yemen Cuisine at 145 Court St. in Cobble Hill, had a message for Trump.

“We have to let him know that what he did was unethical, unhuman, un-American, unconstitutional,” he told the Brooklyn Eagle.

“This is what democracy looks like,” said Miller, the only Muslim council member.

“I hope the State Department, Homeland Security and the White House could see all the immigrants here tonight,” Gentile said. “They would see how far they have drifted from American values.”

(Note: There is a Nagi name involved in a drug related indictment during 2015.  I did not include here because there appears to be no link at this time in a brief internet search between Nasser and the other person. Jumping to conclusions is not my style nor is accusing anyone unless I have proof. That is the liberals way as they so aptly demonstrate daily.)

On a separate but very interesting note is this photo from the air of the plaza in front of the Brooklyn Burrough Building.Aerial views of many landscaped gardens across the world give interesting and telling information about those who created them and their reasoning for being. Like this one for the beautiful Getty Center.

This one, however gave me pause.  Like air photos of the massive pictographs across the world, this one caught my eye. I can almost imagine a space alien design–well until I begin to look at Middle Eastern writing.  Then I wonder what does this really mean to say? What was the landscape artist’s purpose behind the design?

Bedford-Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation (Restoration) celebrated the ribbon cutting of a $20 million neighborhood revitalization project along Fulton Street with local Council Member Al Vann and commissioners from various city agencies of the City of New York in September 2013. It included the renovation and redesign of Restoration Plaza.

Every city needs to do renovations and many have over the years. That is good stewardship. However, something about the picture in front during the demonstration caught my attention. From the ground pictures of the plaza are gorgeous with many flowering bushes and new planters.

This area in Brooklyn has celebrated many different cultures but most prominently are Turkish and other Middle Eastern areas. Not a bad thing at all if we want to be inclusive of other backgrounds and understand the customs of those areas. It does trouble me that a lot of interest has been more or less placed on from where people have come than to celebration of a new life and assimilation or merging of lives into the US communities. All across the country we celebrate briefly those cultures that have come to our shores and helped us make the country stronger for their input but is an area steeped in diversity really helping to merge cultures or is it simply highlighting differences?

That brings me back to the picture and landscaping bare of blooming things and in an overhead shot. Is it just me or is there more to the landscape design than just a beautiful garden setting? I do not have any knowledge of Arabic languages but the design for me is almost like Arabic writing. Was that an intentional design or simply a more modernistic landscaping design?

I find it typical that mainstream has decided for us what they can or will report.  Those in Brooklyn who are not followers of Islam that have as much right to a normal quiet (as much as any city can be) day not interrupted by a thousand or more who have not apparently received approval for this demonstration and certainly from at least one source mentioned things which were definitely anti-American and dangerously inflammatory.  Not only did they demonstrate but they blocked all the roadways in that area so that if emergencies occurred no one could get through.  Where was the Burrough’s President, in the middle of the speeches of course offering up his and the city’s support.  Wonder if there were any citizens who do not have the same view asked for their opinion? The mayor may need to talk for the whole city on most things but on illegal entry crackdowns? Something which was for only a limited time and restricted to only six countries with understandings that only those who drew concern would undergo more “extreme” questioning?

  1. I’ll be so glad when law enforcement finally understands that the president and the AG are on their side and they clamp down on these rabble-rousers, charging them for the various crimes they’re committing and inciting.
    Once the round-ups start, the rest will either settle down or …….. we’ll see…

  2. Popular Front says:

    CBUs have been banned haven’t they? Pity.

    • Uriel says:

      Lol not retired military so CBU I don’t know. But this demo is exactly what has been happening for the last couple of years in Europe.

      • Popular Front says:

        Yes Uriel, CBUs are banned along with napalm, WP greandes and anti-personnel mines. Banned by some civilian candyass. Nothing puts an intruding enemy more on edge than the sight of one of his comrades being blasted six feet in the air minus some or all of his locomotive and reproductive apparatus.

      • SafeSpace says:

        Except that in Europe, the ragheads block city streets by going ass-up-face-down to pray, three times a day. Doesn’t matter if it’s a major artery, just block it up. At least the Brooklynites stayed largely in pedestrian areas.

        Cluster Bomb Unit. Picture peas in a pod, lots of peas, hundreds.
        Breaks up a cluster f*&% real fast.
        How about a bee hive round? Fired from our Cobra gunships in Vietnam starting in late 1968. A 2.75″ rocket contained thousands of little steel darts. We had our ships rigged to carry four tube launchers (2 on each stub wing) with 14 rockets in each.
        You had to watch your fuel load on a hot day (every day) or you would either have to make a running take off until you reached translational lift speed, or keep a very close eye on the torque gauge red line.
        After attacks on enemy positions with bee hive rounds it was not unusual to find soldiers pinned to trees and in at least one case, nailed to the .51 cal machine gun he was manning. In another incident a Cobra on standby got an urgent mission to attack an enemy that was about to over run a position held by our troops. He got the heading and range, took off and immediately at the end of the runway he pulled the ship into a steep climb and punched off a bunch of bee hive rockets towards the action. Bingo! As luck would have it, they were right on target and the guy gets a medal for his skill and quick thinking. And it was just dumb luck he was on target.

    I note from the overhead photo that the crowd is nowhere as big as the article makes it appear.

    • Uriel says:

      Could be but the time of taking several photos in that local paper shows more. But then who knows for sure.

  4. Popular Front says:

    Grenades even.

  5. SafeSpace says:

    Two questions: How long did it take to accumulate 5,000 Yemenis in Brooklyn? How many of them are here legally — that is to say, either on green cards or on unexpired visas?

  6. Hardnox says:

    I wonder who bused all these yemenis in? Soreholes is a safe bet.

    • Uriel says:

      Probably. Don’t forget though 20 years is a whole new set of generations which is what is planned — repopulate and overwhelm
