President’s Message, June 2017
By Phil Orenstein
Two depraved individuals will be awarded high honors in New York City in the month of June, 2017. One is an unrepentant terrorist, a murderer of fellow New Yorkers, and the other is a vocal supporter of terrorist murderers.
On June 1st, anti-Israel cheerleader of terrorists, Linda Sarsour will have the honor of delivering the commencement address to the graduating class at CUNY’s Graduate School of Public Health Policy, with the blessings of Mayor de Blasio and the City Council. Sarsour, co-organizer of the January anti-Trump Women’s March in Washington, notorious for extreme vulgar rhetoric, is a strong voice for the BDS movement to destroy Israel economically, and an advocate for Sharia law in the United States. She described Palestinian children’s violent attacks against Israelis as courageous, and praised convicted terrorists like Rasmea Odeh, who murdered Hebrew University students, and participated in terrorist bombings in Israel.
On June 11th, unrepentant terrorist leader Oscar Lopez Rivera will be honored as the “National Freedom Hero” at the annual Puerto Rican Day Parade. He will also be celebrated with a community march and street sign in his name in Brooklyn, attended by local politicians. Rivera, bomb-maker and terrorist trainer, is a leader of FALN, the former Puerto Rican nationalist terrorist group responsible for more than 120 bombings, including the deadly bombing of Fraunces Tavern, in NYC. He was convicted of federal charges in 1981, for conspiracy to overthrow the U.S. government and sentenced to 55 years in prison. Just before leaving office, President Obama commuted his sentence, and he is set to be released in May.
New York City officials who are celebrating these two dishonorable individuals have lost all sense and sanity. This is purely a non-political issue, a clear case of good vs. evil, that should have everyone, regardless of party, outraged, shouting from rooftops. We should see every single elected official declaring their condemnation of these two scoundrels. However, the opposite is happening, at least as far as our elected representatives and nearly all city council members are concerned, here in de Blasio’s New York, where the lunatic fringe is in charge.
In fact, City Council Speaker, Melissa Mark-Viverito made a grand announcement to the press and the public, of Rivera’s honors as the “National Freedom Hero” at the site of the September 11th terrorist attacks. Many New York politicians will be grinning and marching alongside this bomb-making murderer, singing his praises in the upcoming Puerto Rican Day Parade.
Sen. Kristen Gillibrand recently praised Linda Sarsour in Time magazine and social media. De Blasio, a good friend of Sarsour, rewarded her with a $500,000 taxpayer grant, and nearly all city council members stand behind her CUNY commencement address, where she will share the stage with First Lady Chirlane McCray who will receive an honorary doctorate.
City Councilman Brad Lander and others recently spoke out in praise and defense of Sarsour. Otherwise, the silence is deafening, except for a small handful of politicians, as 99% of our New York elected officials either look the other way or outright praise these two thugs.
This folly has to stop. We are the true resistance. All Republicans, in the vanguard of a new era for New York City, need to speak out loud at the polls and determine to vote the current crop of political flunkies out of public office and into retirement. They are the puppets of the mayor and only serve for their own interests, to go along and to get along. We are the patriotic New Yorkers who want freedom, safety and prosperity for our friends and families, and will be the change agents of New York City.
We must act, mobilize, and organize a great outpouring of support for our Republican City Council and city-wide candidates. These true community leaders have already spoken out and condemned the city’s deranged plans to honor Sarsour and Rivera. If our Republican candidates were in public office today, they would put a stop to the disgraceful plans of CUNY officials and the Puerto Rican Day Parade committee from honoring these two repugnant individuals. We must help get our candidates on the ballot during the petitioning process in June. We are calling for all active Republicans to do their part, pitch in, and help collect signatures from our Republican neighbors, so our candidates will appear on the ballot. This is the first and most important step to winning at the polls on Nov 7th. I’ll be out there every day. See you all on the campaign trail this summer!
