Gotham Resistance attends rally against KSM terror trials in New York City

On Saturday (12/5) about a thousand concerned citizens braved chilly temperatures and a steady rain to pack Manhattan’s Foley Square at the foot of the Federal Courthouse that is slated to hold the trials of Khalid Sheik Mohammed and four other Islamic terrorists.

 

The event was organized by the 9/11 Never Forget Coalition and was emceed by radio talk show host Steve Malzberg. Some of the speakers included Debra Burlingame, Andrew McCarthy, Brian Dennehy, David Beamer, (father of Todd Beamer) and Curtis Sliwa.

 

All of the speakers and 99.9% of the attendees agreed that holding this trial in downtown Manhattan is utterly insane.

 

Gotham Resistance was there to witness the event first hand and to take some pictures of the crowd. It was a wet miserable day, but well worth it. In New York you don’t often get the chance to be surrounded by hundreds of sane people who actually give a damn about the Constitution and the security of our country. In spite of the weather, it was a pleasure to be there.

It’s so refreshing to see young people who think for themselves and resist the indoctrination that has so many young Americans acting like programmed robots. They’re a great organization; check them out at YAF.Com. There’s hope for the future yet!

When all is said and done, average everyday Americans like this woman make all the difference when it comes to fighting an out of control government. I’m proud of her and all of the other great people who stood out in the cold rain to express their outrage at the idiotic decision to give civilian trials to terrorist enemy combatants.

Fox News covered the event, as did NBC News and a couple of radio stations, but that’s about it! When the Left holds a protest consisting of 6 people and a poodle, the mainstream media and the left-wing cable stations rush to cover it. Oh yeah….and the 6 people miraculously turn into 600.

Curtis Sliwa is no slouch when it comes to the security of New Yorkers. His Guardian Angels have been patrolling the city’s most dangerous neighborhoods and subways for thirty years. Mr. Sliwa is tireless and passionate in his service to New York. He delivered a rousing speech in a way that only he can. His remarks raised some eyebrows and probably made a few people uncomfortable, but Sliwa always lets you know exactly what’s on his mind.

 

The banner says it all!

This decision is not only ludicrous, but it’s also disrespectful to the memories of the victims of 9/11.

This decision is not only ludicrous, but it’s also disrespectful to the memories of the victims of 9/11.

When push comes to shove, the main reason for this idiotic decision is to embarrass the Bush/Cheney administration. Obama believes that this will serve as payback to the hard-left for their unconditional support; the security of NYC be damned! The media and the left-wing talking heads are using the same old tired and phony arguments in defending this irresponsible decision. They’re claiming that this will show the world (the Islamic world in particular) how fair and open we are. The trouble with this is that Eric Holder has already said that if by chance KSM and the four others are acquitted, we (United States) still won’t let them go free.

 

How’s that going to look to the Islamic world? Will that show them how fair our system is? Will that make them hate us any less?

 

I’d like to thank my wife (whose name I won’t mention) for coming with me and standing in the cold rain for hours. She took most of the pictures. Afterwards, we went to eat at the Wildwood Barbecue on Park Avenue and 18th street. It’s a nice place for a casual meal – I’d recommend it.

Before the Khalid Shaikh Mohammed Circus comes to town attracting freak shows and illusionists to the midway, I thought the following information would be of interest:

Todd Beamer’s memorial service was held on 09/16/01 at the Princeton Alliance Church in Plainsboro, New Jersey. Todd Beamer’s wife, Lisa Beamer, a grieving mother of two and four months pregnant with her third child, registers TODDBEAMER.ORG four days later on 09/20/01, incorporates The Todd M. Beamer Memorial Foundation eight days later on 9/24/01 and then applies for the trademark “Let’s Roll” ten days later on 9/26/01. Instead of acting like a wife and mother who should be experiencing untold grief and loss her behavior turns a catastrophic personal tragedy into a cold and calculating cheap publicity stunt. But then, the U S Government’s 9/11 propaganda machine needed heroes as well as villains paraded through the media to support endless wars that murder indigenous people for control of their natural resources.

The most pivotal image of the events of 9/11 was what the Associated Press published as the photograph of United flight 175 frozen in time as it approached World Trade Center Two and credited to a Carmen Taylor. However, there appears to be a discrepancy in an early image of her and ones that followed. Real jet planes filled with fuel explode and break apart upon impact. They DO NOT mysteriously enter steel and concrete buildings like a hot knife into soft butter without a spark or bent wing tip. The following link elaborates:

Emanuel,
I debated with myself as to whether or not to publish your comment. I finally came to the conclusion that the best way to fight kookiness and ignorance is to expose it.

First off, I don’t know much about Lisa Beamer, but your facts on the incorporation and trademark do check out. If in fact, Lisa Beamer did act “inappropriately” it doesn’t add any credence to your kooky conspiracy theories. I don’t know why, but many of the survivors of the 911 victims seem to have acted questionably. The Jersey Girls stand out in that respect. There were also other 911 widows who went on huge spending sprees with the 911 settlement money. I can’t explain why this happened, and I can’t explain how I would grieve for a loved one lost on 911 because I fortunately haven’t had that experience.

Anyway, I reported that Todd Beamer’s father David spoke at the rally. I never mentioned Lisa Beamer, and I frankly don’t care about what she’s doing. None of these sideshows buttress your insane theories.

As far as your point about “endless wars that murder indigenous people for control of their natural resources”. This only proves that your theories are based more on your left-wing ideology and not so much on your ignorance and insanity. What natural resources have we taken out of Iraq? Why are we still paying over $3 a gallon for gasoline? If only we could get Iraq to pay us back with some oil!

All of your theories about the planes, about missiles, about how impossible it is for fire to melt steel, have all been disproved over and over again. The fact of the matter is that people like you are hard-core left-wing ideologues who would never question this incident if it had happened under Bill Clinton or Barack Obama. It’s all politics, and quite frankly – it’s getting pretty old.

By the way; look out for those black helicopters piloted by Dick Cheney’s secret underground government. Not only are they spying on you, but they’re poisoning the air you breathe with those chemtrails.
