The Daily Mail covered our protest yesterday against the invitation of a pro-terror, pro-sharia Jew-hater. What’s so telling is every major news organization picked up the NY Daily News fake news story about a wild brawl. There were two arrests — violent leftists, of course. It was our people who were attacked. But nowhere where you get the actual story in any of the news accounts. And we didn’t clash. The violent leftwing goons were agitating and menacing our peaceful protest for the whole of the event.
The story isn’t about violence. The story is we are pushing back against this leftist/Islamic goosestepping army. Why the police put these violent morons right up against our stage is an interesting question. Read about that here.
The fact is the only reason the cowards at CUNY haven’t cancelled Sarsour is that they are afraid that her coreligionists and their leftist lapdogs will blow the place up.
I will have the full video up, HD quality, up this afternoon. See for yourself.
Oh and not to put too fine a point on it, but this was an AFDI demo.
Violence erupts as Milo Yiannopoulos-led protesters chanting ‘make America great again’ clash with demonstrators after Linda Sarsour’s CUNY commencement speech
- Milo Yiannopoulos protested CUNY’s choice of one of its graduation speakers
- Linda Sarsour, who organised the Women’s March, is accused of anti-semitism
- Yiannopoulos and a group of protesters chanted ‘Make America Great Again’
- A counter-demonstrator accused them of being ‘Nazis’ after she was attacked
A rally against one of City University of New York’s commencement speakers ended in a violent altercation between demonstrators and counter-protesters on Thursday.
The scuffle broke out after a band of demonstrators led by alt-right poster boy Milo Yiannopoulos, conservative political commentator Pam Geller and Assemblyman Dov Hikind took to the CUNY campus to blast its decision to select civil-rights activist Linda Sarsour as graduation speaker for its School of Public Health.
A small group of demonstrators said to be chanting ‘Make America Great Again’ supposedly surrounded and attacked 19-year-old counter-protester Heather Morris who accused the group of being ‘Nazis’.
‘They tried hitting me with their fists, their sticks, whatever they found,’ Morris told the New York Daily News after the scuffle.
‘They’re a bunch of Nazis…They probably targeted me because I’m young and I’m brown, too.’
Yiannopoulos and his small group of protesters were rallying against the University’s selection of Sarsour to be its June commencement speaker.
Sarsour rose to prominence in January as the activist who organised the Washington Women’s March soon after President Donald Trump’s inauguration.
She has been accused of being an anti-semite for her support of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.
BDS seeks to put economic pressure on Israel until it grants Palestinian citizens full equality.
The self-proclaimed ‘Palestinian Activist’ also caused uproar after tweeting a photo of a young boy with rocks in each hand facing Israeli police, along with the words ‘the definition of courage.’
Yiannopoulos told the New York Daily News: ‘Linda Sarsour is a Sharia-loving, terrorist-embracing, Jew-hating, ticking time bomb.’
Speaking at the rally he said: ‘It’s now more important than ever to fight Islam in America and particularly its emissaries like Linda Sarsour.’
Geller in her address at the rally laid into Sarsour: ‘She’s earned a reputation as one of this country’s most vicious anti-Israel activists, she has called Netanyahu a ‘waste of skin.’
‘She tweeted a picture of a young Muslim child throwing a rock at Jews, calling him the definition of courage. Surely CUNY can do better?’
A number of CUNY professors have said opting to replace her as speaker would ‘conflict with the First Amendment and the principles of academic freedom.’
A spokesman said after the rally: ‘Some, who object to Ms. Sarsour’s positions, have called on CUNY to rescind the invitation.
‘To take such actions at a public university would violate the First Amendment as well as the principles of academic freedom.’
No arrests were made at the demonstration.
