Posted on 10/18/2020 2:35:08 AM PDT by Altura Ct.
Police stood down and allowed ANTIFA terrorists to attack a group of peaceful Trump supporters in Ithaca, N.Y. on Friday afternoon.
We gathered to have our Trump 2020 Rally, and at 4 PM were immediately met by a large group of counter protestors. After about a half hour went by and the counter protestors saw that they had a large numerical advantage, they began crossing the street, organizer Rocco Lucente wrote in a Facebook post.
At that point they began pushing, shoving, kicking, punching, stealing peoples signs and flags, taking peoples hats, and attempting to physically intimidate the crowd into surrender. It got to the point where the mob was attacking anyone who still had Trump gear on. We called Ithaca Police Department to let them know what was happening, but they didnt show up for a half hour and merely directed traffic away from the riot once they did show up. Mayor Svante Myrick enabled this thuggish display of violence by mobs of his voters by telling IPD to stand down, he added.
Lucente noted that a 60-year-old woman was accosted by the mob and suffered a dislocated shoulder due to the ANTIFA terror. He is urging Trump supporters to show up with overwhelming numbers for a follow-up protest next weekend to show the mob that patriots will not be deterred by their thuggery.
I will be posting more on this in the future, but this post has ONE message: The only way to respond to this is to show up a week from today in MASSIVE numbers, he wrote.
If the mob learns that they can intimidate us into silence, its over. At that point, we no longer have freedom of expression in the place where we live. The ONLY way to show them that this doesnt work is to show them that this will cause us to show up in LARGER NUMBERS THAN EVER! Lucente added.
Tompkins County Republicans also noted that the ANTIFA terrorism that is being celebrated by nascent left-wing organizations such as the Democrat Socialists of America (DSA).
The Cornell Daily Sun covered the event and correctly noted that the ANTIFA terrorists instigated the violent situation.
We had no idea wed be joined by people calling us members of the KKK, organizer Nancy Sullivan said. Were not here to create trouble.
Cornell history professor Russell Rickford endorsed the terrorist display publicly, showing how institutional power works to punish conservatives and endorses violence against them.
I think its really important in a town like Ithaca, with its liberal veneer, to actually demonstrate strong opposition to racist and reactionary politics, said Rickford, who is a member of the Ithaca DSA. Quite often, liberalism is willing to accommodate the far right, to justify it and, by doing so, legitimize it.
Even though Trump supporters have been hunted by ANTIFA terrorists nationwide, the China-owned feds continue to look the other way, as Big League Politics has noted:
After repeatedly denying the ANTIFA terror threat and diverting federal resources to the false canard of white supremacy, a grassroots movement is urging for President Donald Trump to fire FBI Director Christopher Wray.
Newly saved Christian and long-time Trump advocate Roger Stone is publicizing a petition to the President to fire Wray that is rapidly gaining signatures.
So attorney general Bill Barr says he has absolute solid proof via the FBI of Antifas organized financing and structure yet FBI director Christopher Wray insists that ANTIFA, which is a dangerous terrorist group, is just an ideology and not dangerous at all, Stone said in a video address against Wray posted on his Telegram account.
Chris Wray is the epitome of a swamp rat. He has worked against President Donald Trump to cover the excesses of the FBI since the moment he was appointed. It is time for the President to fire Chris Wray, he added.
The petition can be accessed at MagaPetition.org/firewray. The language introducing the petition makes an even stronger case for Trump to depose Wray.
Director Wray has failed to pursue in any meaningful way the criminal abuses of power perpetrated by his predecessor and the former Deputy Director who participated in nothing less than a seditious conspiracy aimed at a sitting president, after spying on this president while a candidate for that office, obtaining extraordinary secret warrants under knowingly-false pretenses and by systematic deception of a federal court, in service to tawdry personal and partisan vendettas against this president, the petition description reads.
Director Wray has failed to reform the culture of the FBI that has for too long been tainted by political correctness and the selective targeting of enforcement against only those who have opposed certain political actors, sects or ideologies, while ignoring serious and widespread crimes committed or fomented by these same political actors or their fellow travelers, the petition continues.
Despite what taxpayer-funded Marxists say on college campuses, all of the institutional and systemic oppression in this country is against white conservatives. Diversity and multiculturalism mean the death of the rule of law with low IQ savagery reigning supreme.
Well, Ithaca IS the “city of evil”.
Screw showing up with overwhelming numbers...fight back when attacked.
Next time, in addition to signs, bring an army.
Guess who will be going to jail then on as high a felony charge as can be vaguely connected? Hint: Not BLM/AF.
If you were relying on the cops being fair or on our side? You are sadly mistaken.
Another day of Democrat violence against law-abiding, patriotic American citizens.
Attach signs to axes.
Show up with guns.
Russell Rickford should be publically called out to either resign or be fired.
Write the dean of Cornell.
Although we have RKBA rights here that they do not have down there, leftist mayors and DAs have made it clear that if we respond with force, WE are the ones they will prosecute.
Our options are getting fewer and fewer.
Looks like Ithaca cops don’t want any one to support THEM.
Thats when you stop fighting Antifa and target the police. If the cops stand down, they become legitimate targets.
Your tagline says it better.
And another day of complicit police standing down.
They want us all dead or enslaved.
I don’t disagree with my tagline - but one should carefully consider the reactions and likely ramifications before doing so - and make preparations accordingly. Remember that this isn’t 1968 any more and modern surveillance tech *must* be taken into account.
When you come to a peaceful rally be sure you are ready for one that is not
The left won’t defund the cops. They’ll train them to go after us.
This is total horseshit! People need to start packing, and using, when attacked!
I agree with that.
Cameras work both ways, as in the case of young Rittenhouse. It went from bloodthirsty rightwinger to self defense pretty quickly because of cameras.
If the cops are not going to defend those attacked, then they must defend themselves.
They scurry pretty quick when they are pushed. If the cops choose them, then we are in trouble and I do not like the potential outcome of that.
