Oh boy, get a load of this. This one involves the Green-Rainbow Party of Massachusetts, City Councilor Chuck Turner, and Andover High School teacher Ron Francis who's on the record recruiting in the school for his hobbies.
The Green-Rainbow Party of Massachusetts is encouraging people to come out and protest the Talk, Walk and Rock for Israel event this Sunday: Protest Racist Celebration of "Israel" in Boston - Sun 6/18, 11 AM [note that the text on the page scrolls off to the right]. Take note of the fact that Boston City Councilor Chuck Turner is also encouraging people to attend and take a look at what he had to say about it according to a posting on the Green's email list [all emphasis in this and other quotations are mine]:
You can't make this stuff up. You'll remember loony-left Turner as the City Councilor who smeared our troops by trying to pass off downloaded porno pictures as evidence of rape committed by American soldiers...resulting in the Boston Globe's printing said pictures. See here, and here (following is a quote from a Globe editorial published at the time):
Turner's photos appear to match ones found on a pornographic website. Yesterday the Globe apologized for including a photo showing the images with the article about Turner's claims...
So now the call has gone out to the Green-Rainbow people...and guess who's pushing their participation? None other than Andover High School physics teacher and Hamas supporter, Ron Francis (see here, here, and here):
The "celebration" is of the ethnic cleansing and subsequent denial of refugee rights for the 5.2 Palestinians around the world who are recognized by the UN as refugees.
It's a racist event should be protested. Jewish priviledge nature of the state of Israel is apartheid (legalized racism) plain and simple and it must be ended. [I expect they'll be protesting other racist celebrations by the Italian and Japanese communities next...not. -S]
If we do endorse, let's bring the GRP banner to make our support known.
are there any concerns ???....
One concern may be from Andover parents and tax-payers who don't like the fact that Francis has been preying on their kids by recruiting them for his activities:
I talked with a social studies teacher at my school (Andover Public High school) and he is amenable to having students earn credits to do internships similar to what Michelle did as a community organizer.
There may be other teachers as well. I will probably try to get Michelle to make a brief presentation to the social studies class and maybe help her to enlist more students in using the "West Somerville" model that Michelle executed and refined, post-execution,
I both hope and suspect that several students will be interested... we need to find anchors....
Recall, as I mentioned before, what's happening this Sunday is a family day -- face-painting, moonbounce...all that good stuff. The bizarre hatred these people pour out on families is pathological.
I hope a lot of you regular folks, supporters of Israel and the Jewish Community can come to the event. You don't have to be Jewish to show your support and enjoy the day. In spite of my focus on the negative here, the event is a good one for families. Bring your American and Israeli flags, march in the parade or just come to the plaza and ignore the voices of hate (who are kept at a distance and surrounded by police anyway, and can be ignored after you enter). Solomonia operatives will be taking photos and video of the bad guys so that you don't have to.
