NOT My President Day Leftists Return to Columbus Circle NYC
Presidents Day Protest. NYC. Feb. 20, 2017. RENAMED (by the rabid Left) “NOT MY PRESIDENT DAY”
Location: Start at Columbus Circle. Assemble outside Trump International Hotel. 61st St & Central Park West. Time: 12pm – 4pm
This was announced as a peaceful demonstration; a rally, not a march. However, most of those who worship all things that “lean to the Left”, they had to march up Broadway anyway just to get access to the protest site.
There was a congressional recess on February 20th that aligned with President’s Day. SO, “Let’s rally while our federal representatives are back in town and remind them who they represent.”
But, today was NOT just any Presidents Day.
Officially, the holiday is called Washington’s Birthday, to honor the first American president, George Washington. The date was established by Congress with the Monday Holidays Act, which went into effect in 1971.
But, just say “President Trump” and watch the temper tantrums from the Left begin.
That’s all they needed to “gather like children,” screaming, ‘Trump is NOT my President.” Pathetic.
AMERICA, however, did not remain silent. There were pockets of confident patriots scattered from 60th to 65th st.
Not just ‘white’ America the Left loves to smear with cries of racism.
People of color. Diversity. THIS is what democracy looks like.
Polite (mostly). FIRM in their convictions that Donald Trump IS our President. YOU LOST. Get over it!”
Heading towards the subway, I felt weary from yet another YUGE temper tantrum. So much snarky ill-will.
Yet, the civilized street debates offered up by those brave patriotic Americans, also left me encouraged.
Kudos to the patriots who had the courage to stand amongst so many smug Fools and Tools and retained their composure. Bravo.
For those on the Left (hard core and otherwise), who suck the life out of everything while preaching hatred for all things Republican, a major Razzie award to you all.
Where is MOM when you need her?
“Time out.” “Go to your Room” (if only that would work).

After the Rally, the Leftists filled their Facebook and Twitter feeds with the expected self congratulation. BUT so did the Patriots!!
Thank you to EVERYONE that came out. We made a stand and it was great. The Spirit of ’76 was alive yesterday and we totally messed up the libs day. So proud of everyone!
By the way, the next event will be on March 4th – I believe at Trump Tower. It’s called “March 4 Trump” and they will be happening in several cities. Thanks again.
The LEFT says they’re winning. Yet, after reading their “mission statement”, methinks hubris may sink their ship (hoping).
Facebook statement on WHY they rallied for NOT MY PRESIDENT Day:
Donald Trump is literally our President, but figuratively, he has attacked every value New Yorkers embody and does not represent our interests. We will be staging a rally at Columbus Circle to protest the un-American policies of the current White House:
– He plans to cut federal funding to our state in an attempt to turn us against our immigrant population, funneling money away from important public institutions.
– He wants to use our tax money to build a wall that no one wants.
– He attacked our Muslim communities and instituted an Islamophobic religious ban.
– He approved a pipeline that threatens to destroy sacred lands.
– His administration opposes a woman’s right to choose and purged the White House website of information pertaining to police brutality and LGBTQ rights.
– His party doesn’t take climate change seriously and undermines our state’s efforts to combat it.
Donald Trump stands against the progress we have worked hard to enact. He does not represent our interests. He was voted in by a minority of the American public but governs as if there’s no resistance. But there is — and on February 20th, we will honor previous presidents by exercising our constitutional right to assemble and peacefully protest everything Donald Trump stands for.
