    Déjà vu all over again

    Reported in the NY Post:

    Anti-cop protesters flood Harlem streets in wake of subway crackdown
    Police arrested at least 58 anti-cop demonstrators who flooded the streets of Upper Manhattan to protest a fare-evasion crackdown and police in the subways Friday night.

    The crowd swelled to about two hundred people soon after the protest kicked off at about 5:30 p.m. in Harlem. The demonstration was called to protest Governor Cuomo’s plan to add 500 police officers to patrol the subway and several high-profile, caught-on-video arrests in the subway system in recent weeks, organizers said.

    As the group headed east on 125th Street near Malcolm X Boulevard, marchers chanted “f—k the police” and “fare free NYC.”

    The crowd, some carrying signs that read “NYPD Out Of The Subway,” then marched north toward The Bronx, shutting down traffic on the Third Avenue Bridge by taking over the roadway.
    The protest, billed as an “FTP Emergency Action” an abbreviation for “F— The Police,” was advertised on Twitter by a consortium of anti-cop groups calling itself “DecolonizeThisPlace.”
    “F—k cops and every racist fascist person out here. These are our neighborhoods,” Alicia, 22, of the Bronx, added.
    This is just idiotic leftist trash and racist bunk on parade. But OK, it's their neighborhood, as they say. They want "fare free" subways? And they want the cops "out of the subway"?

    Fine, go right ahead. Do it, Mayor Bill.

    Have a nice day.

    Not for nothing, beyond mocking the ridiculousness of their demands, it's worth noting that such impossible demands are a strategy. I used to see it in the old ACORN days of bum rushing meetings about housing development. They would push the furniture around and disrupt meetings shouting demands for absurdly high portions of subsidized housing in prospective developments. Yes, the idea is straight out of Alinsky's infamous guide for radicals, and the goal is chaos and destruction, pure and simple.
