Protesters Rally Outside the Bayside Home of NYPD Union Boss Pat Lynch

Protesters held a rally outside the Bayside home of New York City Police Benevolent Association President Pat Lynch Wednesday night.

Dozens of Black Lives Matter demonstrators turned out to show their disdain for Lynch whose union last week endorsed President Donald Trump for this year’s November election.

The protesters were greeted by a large number of cops who had set up barricades on the street.

The event went on for a little over an hour, with protesters on megaphones lambasting Lynch and the NYPD calling them racists and murderers.

Lynch released a statement following the rally.

“New York City police officers will protect your right to protest wherever it can be done safely and legally, including in front of my house,” Lynch said.

“But these protesters should realize they are wasting their time. Their campaign of harassment and intimidation might have the politicians running scared, but it will have zero impact on the PBA.”

No surprises

Only real surprise here is that Lynch actually lives in NYC. Bayside sounds about right. Probably pretty chummy with the Whitestone Wolverine?

Lynch will never change, however, he seems to be speeding towards the demise and dismantling of his own union which should be the first thing to go when remaking the NYPD from the ground up. Having a guy with an IQ of about 75 at the helm of something like that screams for the need to completely gut renovate the department and its leadership. Change is coming, Pat! Better pull over, you’re running on empty.

What all the “news” outlets aren’t reporting is that the racist BLM ring leader, on his megaphone, called Pat Lynch an “Irish mick fk.” The ringleader, who is black, then called the people watching the protest across the street “Italian ginny fks.” Isn’t this real racism? I’d love some old school Gotti associates to make a visit out here to Bayside.

If it were reversed, the media would report it. Interesting that these so called progressive, open minded people would use ethnic slurs during a protest against prejudice… I wonder if they think Dr Fauci is.

Pat Lynch did his Union no favors by going to Bedminster to endorse Trump. Hurt his cause more than helped.

I don’t think he should have endorsed ANY Presidential candidate, especially not this President, who has repeatedly ignored and abused the rule of law, and publicly trashed our Intelligence agencies.

The majority of Democrats, and certainly not Biden, do not “utterly loathe the police,” and are not calling to abolish them.

Gardens Watcher, I absolutely agree that Lynch should have sat this one out. But to say most Democrats do not loathe the police is giving them a free pass on their egregiously disgraceful behavior for the last three months. That includes both VP Biden and Senator Harris. While in the Obama administration Biden Et al. allowed the “hands up don’t shoot” narrative to spread long after everyone involved new it was pure bullshit. It is still repeated by people that should know better. The party is still catering to the violent Marxists of BLM.

Interview people that live in high crime neighborhoods that need police protection. Most of these protesters do not live in Harlem, E. New York, Jamaica Queens or the Bronx, where alongside criminals live hard working people. New Yorkers want safe neighborhoods. I’m speaking from experience. I’m an immigrant, who grew up in NYC projects, went to college and worked hard to have the job that I have. Living in a high crime neighborhood in the past, my family and I are so thankful for the protection the police provided.

Meanwhile, people are being robbed, harassed, assaulted and shot at by criminals on the other side of town. Love all those social media vids were people are coming out of there homes in minority neighborhoods and kicking these protesters out of their communities. Shutting them down and telling them they only care when its a white cop and that defunding the police makes some of their communities more violent.

Even the Republican Senate agrees Trump worked with Russians. Your support of Trump makes you a traitor too. Riots in the streets, hundreds of thousands sickened and dead and 25 million unemployed, it’s obvious, this is deliberate. It’s Putin’s bidding. Four Russian spies in one campaign.

“Even the Republican Senate agrees Trump worked with Russians“

Please sir, read the Senate Intel report and the Mueller report. Mueller concluded that there is no evidence that Trump colluded with Russia after an exhaustive investigation. The Senate committee “found absolutely no evidence that then-candidate Donald Trump or his campaign colluded with the Russian government to meddle in the 2016 election,”

The Mueller report states there are at least 10 incidents of Conspiracy, “collusion”. They were not pursued by Mueller because the crimes were outside the scope of Mueller’s investigation.

“Riots in the streets“

The rioting is being done by left-wing groups such as Antifa and BLM and primarily in Democrat controlled areas. A lot of it could probably be cut back if Democrat leaders like Biden, Pelosi and Obama asked their supporters to knock it off. Their silence is giving the appearance that they approve of it.

The riots like Charlottesville which left a a young girl murdered. Trump said they were good people. The riots are happening on Trumps watch. As President Truman said “the buck stops here”.

“hundreds of thousands sickened and dead“

This statement could be made about nearly every president of the US besides the first few when the population of the US was low. It doesn’t matter who you put in, hundreds of thousands of people will get sick and die.

“25 million unemployed“

Democrat governors need to open their economies back up instead of trying to interfere in the election. Look at NY. The curve has flattened and plummeted, yet businesses are still forced to stay closed/not fully open.

I don’t understand. Democrats want lockdowns but then want to whine(or gloat) about the unemployment numbers.

Republican Governor’s of Florida, Georgia, Texas and Arizona did exactly that, “opened back up their economies” and now they have all caught up and are surpassing Blue States in infections, hospitalization and deaths. Trump and Fox News’ Propaganda outlet are false gods who have lead their gullible followers down a path to unnecessary misery.

no crime here

“Russia and other countries took advantage of the Transition Team’s inexperience, transparent opposition to Obama Administration policies, and Trump’s desire to deepen ties with Russia, to pursue unofficial channels through which Russia could conduct diplomacy…” no conspiracy or anything illegal here…President Trump had no knowledge of these diplomatic contacts…more fake news

@No crime here- 10 incidents of obstruction. Obstruction is a crime. The Senates bipartisan report on the Trump administration Russian Contacts and the Mueller investigation says this administration acted in a treasonous manner. Your post is fake news and propaganda but most of all your post is treasonous.

When Rats want to deflect

blame it on Russia or Trump, lmao. NOTHING on liberal media about RIOTS, ASSAULTING, ROBBING and BEATING of innocent civilians, BURNING down businesses, destroying livelihoods! DemocRATS, including Biden, Obama SPIED on a presidential campaign, high treason.Why did Clinton delete thousands of emails if she had nothing to hide? Democrats didn’t expect Trump to win, fakeD impeachment and doing everything they can (Rioters are well organized) to regain power. Democrats are not interested in their constituents, they are ok with skid row tent cities like Pelosi’s district, or if regular citizens live in squalor. Democrats support radical groups, they encourage the lawlessness going on now. BLM organization is explicitly discriminatory and pro violence, confirmed many times by their leaders. Before any radical (Left or Right) starts throwing insults and naming BS names ask yourselves is it ok to loot, burn property, assault and traumatize people, if you are ok with that by all means vote for your radical democRATs, give them the power to enslave and control your lives.

Hey Rat : Thank you for the buzz word laced propaganda post. If you’re fine with RepubliCON policies like more tax breaks for the richest 1%, denying healthcare to millions of working Americans, Passage of Right to work legislation, support of treasonous career criminal in the White House who just so happened to be caught with four Russian spies on his campaign ( talk about a nest of spies) then cast your vote for RepubliCONs. If you’re stupid enough to believe Democrats condone looting and burning of business then RepubliCONs are your party. The party of stupid as said by Bobby Jindal RepubliCON Governor of Louisiana. They will do for us what they did for these RepubliCON strong holds. US News and World Report After analyzing all 50 U.S. states, here are the 10 poorest states in America for 2020:
Mississippi
New Mexico
Louisiana
West Virginia
Alabama
Kentucky
South Carolina
Arkansas
Tennessee
North Carolina
They are Con Artist’s who use fear, race baiting and lies to manipulate gullible voters as they’ve done with above listed states. Enjoy.

Thanks, but I’ll vote RepubliCAN

Majority of middle class income Americans did receive tax cuts under Trump. NYC mayor too busy painting streets without permit, but not allowing other groups to do the same, so very democratic and non discriminatory of him 😂. Other democrats condoned looting and burning with dismissive attitude towards business owners, “buildings are only brick and mortar”. Why would business owners want to rebuild if everything they worked for can be destroyed so quickly with local politicians supporting “peaceful protesters” who yell, get in peoples faces, jump on peoples cars, burn them, throw bricks and beat people up. “Peaceful protestors” showing up at peoples homes, peacefully yelling in bull horns, yet citizens trying to protect themselves, their families and homes, are being prosecuted by you guessed it, a democrat! You really don’t know if anyone of this “peaceful protestors” will throw a Molotov cocktail and burn down your home. Marxist’s don’t care about private property, thats a fact. Easier to take and destroy. Russia collusion? You want to talk about bribes that Clinton and their foundation took in “speaking fees” from foreign countries? What happened to the billions deemed for Haiti relief and the Clintons? Where is all that money?! Before I listen to Pelosi, she needs to take care of the people in her own district. They leave in extreme poverty while she is behind pearly gates. “Peaceful BLM protestors” and whoever’s backs them use fear, intimidation, race baiting to destroy the American Dream.

You’re horribly misinformed and uninformed. It’s exactly as Bobby Jindal former Republican Governor of Louisiana said “Republican Party of Stupid”. You’re obviously voting for “other” reasons than policy and facts. Only a handful of municipalities in the United States offer health care coverage for undocumented immigrants, including Los Angeles County’s My Health LA program, and San Francisco’s Healthy San Francisco. The lack of coverage of undocumented immigrants has shown increases in spread of preventable diseases.

Giving birth to anchor babies is healthcare

Anchor babies cost American taxpayers billions every year to subsidize hospital costs. In addition majority of illegal immigrants with children birthed in US (not DACA) using federal welfare programs, exploiting Medicaid, food-stamps and WIC program. So yes illegals receiving free medical care plus other benefits, while Americans foot the bill, not to mention other emergency medical procedures for illegals who don’t pay. Or u think hospital is doing that for free?

You need to provide some proof supporting what you’re saying. Your post is filled with contractions and inaccuracies. Strange how you throw your contempt anger and hatred at a race of human beings and infants with dehumanizing terms like anchor baby and illegals but ignore the companies and individuals who entice these indigent people here with jobs. You have a typical Republican mindset when it comes to crime. A career criminal tax cheating draft evading “illegal” alien using white president (Trump was convicted of using illegal Polish laborers to demolish Bon Witt Teller) and his cronies are above reproach as long as he exacts some type of retribution on groups you find less than human.

What has Trump said about taking control of the streets ? We need a candidate democrat or Republican who will address the root of these issues. Why are housing projects not ordered to diversify? People living in housing projects who engage in any criminal activity should be evicted. Stricter sentences not softer for felons. This is a good start.

LaGuardia Community College recently received more than $400,000 in federal funding to enhance and expand vocational training for underemployed New Yorkers in a city that is still working to recover from COVID-19 pandemic-induced job loss. The support was secured by U.S. Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, Congresswoman Nydia Velázquez and former Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney.

LaGuardia Community College President Kenneth Adams explained that the school lost nearly a quarter of its students at the height of the pandemic due to the economic effects of the lockdown on low-income Queens households.
