Leave it to the deranged left-wing NY Daily News to drum up a false story about our demo against CUNY’s invite to pro-terror, Jew-hater Linda Sarsour to keynote their commencement ceremonies.
The demo was a huge success, a triumph with hundreds turning out to protest the monstrous invite to a monster.
Just for knowing, there was no “wild brawl.” Two violent left-wing morons were arrested for attacking our people. That’s news? That’s standard operating procedure for those violent morons. But the New York Daily News wrote it up that the violent goons were the ones attacked. They make stuff up. Did they talk to any of the speakers? No. Did they talk to any of the victims of those arrested? No. And they said there were no arrests.
The NY Daily News alleges a girl was beaten up by thugs chanting Make America Great Again. Perhaps she was traumatized by the words, Make America Great Again.
Wild brawl breaks out at rally against CUNY’s commencement speaker civil-rights activist Linda Sarsour
Assemblyman Dov Hikind speaks with (l.) Pamela Geller at a rally in front of CUNY on East 42nd St. and 3rd Ave. over CUNY’s choice of Muslim-American activist Linda Sarsour as commencement speaker on Thursday May 25, 2017
BY Sarah Gabrielli, Rich Schapiro, NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Thursday, May 25, 2017:
A raucous rally against CUNY’s School of Public Health’s commencement speaker ended in violence Thursday when demonstrators clashed with counter-protesters.
The scuffle broke out after an unlikely band of protesters — including conservative provocateur Pam Geller, Assemblyman Dov Hikind and alt-right bad boy Milo Yiannopoulos — blasted CUNY’s decision to select civil-rights activist Linda Sarsour.
A small group of demonstrators chanting “Make America Great Again” surrounded and roughed up 19-year-old counter-protester Heather Morris.
“They tried hitting me with their fists, their sticks, whatever they found,” Morris said after the fracas on E. 42nd St. at Second Ave.

Alt-right characters? I am Jewish. Nonie is an Egyptian former Muslim. These people are nuts.
They’re a bunch of Nazis…They probably targeted me because I’m young and I’m brown, too.”
No arrests were made.
Wrong again. Two arrests of leftist haters were made.
An outcry broke out in April after CUNY announced that it tapped Sarsour, a city activist who some accuse of being anti-Semitic, to be its June commencement speaker.
Sarsour’s profile has risen in recent months as she organized the Women’s March in Washington.
But Sarsour has also been criticized for denouncing Zionism and tweeting a photo of a young boy with rocks in each hand facing Israeli police, along with the words “the definition of courage.”
“Why would CUNY have a commencement speaker who supports terrorism and believes in throwing rocks?” Hikind (D-Brooklyn) said at the Thursday rally.
Geller expressed a similar sentiment.
“I wanna say a prayer for CUNY chancellor James Milliken that he rights this terrible wrong,” said Geller, best known for trying to run a series of controversial subway ads ripping radical Islam.
“That he would invite a pro-terror, vicious anti-Semite to keynote the commencement address this year is obscene and profane.”
Yiannopoulos, not surprisingly, launched an even more scathing attack on Sarsour.
“Linda Sarsour is a Sharia-loving, terrorist-embracing, Jew-hating, ticking time bomb,” said the former Breitbart editor who lost his job after suggesting that he supported pedophilia.
Several CUNY professors have come forward to resist the calls to replace Sarsour — saying that bowing to the critics would “conflict with the First Amendment and the principles of academic freedom.”
A CUNY spokesman used similar language in defending the decision Thursday.
“Some, who object to Ms. Sarsour’s positions, have called on CUNY to rescind the invitation,” the rep said. “To take such actions at a public university would violate the First Amendment as well as the principles of academic freedom.”
