The pro-illegal immigration ‘antifascist’ group protesting Donald is ‘ready to #CrushTrump’ and supposedly this rally is to ‘oppose hatred’. How many of you are ready to place bets this thing is going to get violent? Oh, by the way… there is another rally–same mission–in a second state. Check it.

A so-called “antifascist” group that supports illegal immigration is planning a rally against GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump this Saturday in New York City, the same day that a Black Lives Matter affiliated group that also supports illegal immigration is planning a rally in Phoenix, Arizona.

The Facebook page for the recently formed group Cosmopolitan Antifascists announces the Rally Against Donald Trump, using the hashtag #CrushTrump, will be held Saturday at 11 AM at New York’s Columbus Circle. The group’s Facebook announcement says:

Donald J. Trump has made headlines in recent months with his divisive rhetoric, hate speech, and extremist plans to “make America great again”. We, in fact, believe this will do the opposite to this nation. Trump’s policy threatens many of us in the Black, Latino, LGBT, Muslim, and other communities. These policies and this type of speech has no place in this country, and certainly does not have a place in the city that Trump grew his empire in, which is considered such a melting pot and home for many of the same people Trump continues to wage war on. Join us at Columbus Circle as we march to Trump Tower as we say no to hate, no to divisiveness, no to fascist policies, and most importantly, no to Donald J. Trump.

The Cosmopolitan Antifascists are soccer fans, working in solidarity with English groups who combine pro-leftist sentiments with the sport. New York City has a professional soccer team called the New York Cosmos, although the group says it is not directly affiliated with the team.

The invite for the event leads to the Facebook page of Nathen Taylor, a nose ring-wearing man who says he previously worked at Saatchi & Saatchi London and who currently works as a digital designer at Leicester City Football Club. Taylor’s recent Facebook cover was a photo of Democratic Presidential contender Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). His Instragram feed has a number of soccer related photos,  as well as pro-illegal immigration messaging and one picture shows him wearing a Bernie Sanders T-shirt, styled after the seminal Los Angeles punk rock group Black Flag.

NASL. What up?
