Political Street Graffiti: The Thomas Jefferson Edition, Part 2

(click to enlarge)

I came across this stenciled Thomas Jefferson quote yesterday painted on a warehouse wall. It is the second one like this I've seen lately around here. You can see the first one here.

It's an interesting series and it sure beats the hell out of all the other street 'art' in Williamsburg. I'm looking forward to finding more of them.

Incitement Street Graffiti: The' Violence Solves Everything' Edition

(click to enlarge)

It's basically a point-and-shoot around here lately, with a camera that is. Every day it's something new. Now it's 'Violence Solves Everything'? What the hell is wrong with these people?

And as a bonus, last night just a few blocks from me here in my neck of the woods in Williamsburg, Brooklyn the local OWS jerks took over a building that was under construction and proceeded to riot.

The New York Daily News

"DOZENS of partying Occupy Wall Street protesters descended on hipster Brooklyn Saturday night, clashing with police, throwing garbage cans and drinking beer out of a vacant luxury building.

The night was billed as a “Challenge to property relations party” in which the group planned to take over a building at the corner of N. Eighth and Driggs Sts. in Williamsburg, according to a flyer.

They hung Christmas lights, spray painted slogans like “F--k the police” and “Life is Protest” on the building walls, but were civilized enough to pack some beer on ice in the empty building at 208 N. Eighth St.

When police were called to bust up the party just before 11 p.m., the group of 30 party-hardy protesters marched down to the corner of N. Sixth and Bedford Sts. — in front of a New York Muffins shop — and began to chant their slogans, block traffic and toss garbage cans in the street.

Several police were injured in the fracas and a handful of protesters were arrested, witnesses and cops said."

OWS Street Graffiti: I See Tent People

These things just keep popping up.

'Atentive'? School House Rock it's not.

Must be part of some 'run away from home and live in a tent' childhood fantasy.

Speaking of childhoods, from the glad-it's-not-happening-here category, the Mayor of Oakland told the grimy OWS cult members to "stop using Oakland is its playground" after 300 arrests.

OWS Political Street Art: The 'Let Them Eat Pepper Spray' Edition

(click to enlarge)

I don't know how this one got by me for so long. It looks like it's been up for a while. Harkening back to the salad days of Occupied Zucotti Square it seems the poor little OWS pests felt that Nanny Bloomberg was hard too hard on them. Really? Bloomie gave them the keys to the city lock, stock and barrel. Run amok for months, they cost the taxpayer untold millions of dollars in lost business, closed businesses, garbage clean up, and 24-hour-a-day policing.

All that time and money, for what?

And how incredible is it that now we can't even have a parade for our returning soldiers.

CAIR NY Press Conference at City Hall: Calls for Investigations and Firings After Film "The Third Jihad" Used in NYPD Training

CAIR-NY held a press conference at City Hall this morning with a list of demands, among them calling for the firing of New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly and NYPD Spokesman Paul Browne.

They also demanded that Eric Holder investigate the NYPD for the use of an anti-Islamic jihad documentary film, "The Third Jihad." The full-length documentary which opens with a disclaimer which states that only a small percentage of the world's Muslims are radical, details many terrorist attacks including the horrific 2004 slaughter in Beslan. It was produced by The Clarion Fund in 2007 warning against the dangers of violent Islamic jihad and was recently shown to cadets at the New York City Police Department playing in a
continuous loop in a sign-in area of NYPD counterterrorism training sessions.

Ray Kelly appeared in the film for less than a minute. CAIR is demanding that Kelly be fired as well as NYPD Spokesman Paul Browne for denying NYPD involvement.

Here is a 30-minute clip from "The Third Jihad" below.

On top of everything else, CAIR is also demanding the "re-training" of the 1,489 police cadets who saw the film because they were obviously "poisoned" by it.

After witnessing mass murder when the World Trade Center burned and collapsed in 2001 and watching the past 10 years of global Islamic terrorism spill oceans of blood across the earth, I fail to see how insensitive this is. Zuhdi Jasser is even in it, for cripes sake! How does CAIR expect us to train our law enforcement to fight terrorism? Should we just show pillow fights between Mormons and Girl Scouts so no one gets 'offended'? Here's an idea, CAIR - how about just start broadcasting to Americans the daily TV programs from the middle east that depict Jews and Christians as apes and pigs? Or the ones that instruct children to blow themselves up in order to kill as many infidels as possible.

My videos from the press conference are uploading now.. please stand by. LOTS more to come...

In the first of several videos to come,
the press conference begins...

In the next must-see video below, City Council Member Jumaane Williams announces that next Friday, Feb. 3rd there will be a massive public Islamic prayer in the streets of downtown Manhattan, followed by a rally and a march on NYPD Headquarters.

More VIDEOS coming up!

CAIR grievance mongering begins with
Cyrus McGoldrick, CAIR Civil Rights Manager:

Shahid Farooqi from ICNA,
'The Islamic Circle of North America

Rev. Chloe Breyer, of the 'Interfaith Center of New York' likens the film to Japanese internment during World War II

Noel Leader from '100 Blacks in Law Enforcement Who Care'

Imam Hajj Talib Abdur Rashid of the
'Mosque of the Islamic Brotherhood of New York'

More videos of the speakers demanding heads to roll are posted over at my YouTube page.

How sad that is all took place in the very shadow of our World Trade Center being rebuilt. You can see the Freedom Tower going up between the buildings.

Street Graffiti: The Kill All Edition

Spotted this bit of spray-painted graffiti this morning.
It struck me as funny because advocating indiscriminate general massacre would also have to include the spray-painter.
Maybe the sprayer is a card-carrying member of the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement.

Naturally it goes without saying that one can't just set about killing all unless one first attacks.

Passing Shots: Political Street Art Along the Way

While out and about in my trendy, hipster wacko neighborhood all sorts of things catch my eye so I grab a quick shot and save them for later. Many are of a political nature but most are just arty and those tend to be generally very weird or not safe for work. The political ones don't always make it into posts but they are kind of amusing.

The one above I noticed this morning was posted on a mailbox by someone who hates the police.

The one of the 'End the Fed' variety is recent and very rare around these parts.
It has since been taken down.

This '99%'er apparently lives in a very nice building in what is now quite an expensive area to live in.

Still posted in a local bookstore window.
Money talks too much? I guess so.. OWS is broke!

Is this street art supposed to be Obama or Mandela? Or both? Is the 'Chairman' a reference to Mao? Kind of a grab bag of sorts. Very weather worn at this point.

Could even be Jimmy Carter's squint.

At first glance I though this was Obama.
It turned out to be Putin and has since faded into the sidewalk.

King Abdullah International Gardens in Saudi Arabia Design Bears Uncanny Resemblance to the Flight 93 9/11 Memorial in Shanksville, PA

Just picked this up on Twitter from the below Saudi fellow. He points out that the King Abdullah International Gardens in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is winning top design awards though it hasn't been built yet.

Ahmed Al Omran
@ahmed Ahmed Al Omran
So King Abdullah International Gardens (KAIG) have won many awards even though it's years away from being opened? http://riy.cc/701828

But I noticed that it bears a very strong resemblance to the original design of the 9/11 Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, PA

Political Subway Graffiti: The Impeach Obama Edition

(Click to enlarge)

Spotted this on the subway today downtown at the City Hall station and it made me smile. I had to grab a quick shot before my train came.

Sorry it's a little blurry!

Political Street Art: The Thomas Jefferson Edition

(Click to enlarge)

Well, this certainly was an odd surprise today since my neighborhood isn't exactly known as Tea Party central.

Street art quoting Thomas Jefferson in the blame-America-first, Leftist hipster zone that is Williamsburg, Brooklyn?

Now I've seen everything.

Either there's another conservative that is also an artist living here in Obama County--the chances of which are fatally slim,
or quoting our founding fathers is now 'hip.'

Passing Shot: OWS Woodstock, New York

Went for a nice winter day mountain hike upstate today in Woodstock and saw this large sign posted in front of someone's house on a busy road. UGH!

A reminder that the spring will return in just a short couple of months and once again the city streets will be filled with hoards of drum banging OWS psychos.
