Trump Supporters Stage Sit-In At Charlotte City Council To Protest ‘Tyranny’ (VIDEO)

Published

on

President Donald Trump supporters staged a sit-in at the Charlotte City Council to protest a Democrat council member’s claim that Trump supporters should not be allowed to participate in Charlotte city government.

Big League Politics has obtained exclusive footage (Below) of this stunning protest that the mainstream media is trying not to report on.

At the flashpoint of the controversy in Charlotte, home of the transgender bathroom bill, is a 30 year old Democrat named Dimple Tansen Ajmera, a District 5 representative and an immigrant from India. Dimple arrived in the United States when she was 16 years old.  Her parents knew no English and were here for economic opportunities. Dimple attended Public School where she learned English, her motivation being she wanted to be successful in business in America. She says that she felt alone and shut out in her school, for being different. Last month Dimple made statements on a TV program that as a City Council member, she wants to exclude supporters of President Donald Trump from running for office in City Government in Charlotte.

Dimple says in a panel discussion on a show called Flashpoint on NBC Charlotte,  that “Trump and his supporters should be nowhere near us.”

When given the opportunity to amend her statements Dimple only doubles down and affirms that she absolutely means to say that Trump supporters should be banned from running for Government positions. Dimple is currently running for an At Large Position on the City Council where she will have more people to represent. She has a Democrat Primary Challenger and 2-3 Republican Challengers.

Local North Carolina Trump supporters and activists were offended with Dimple’s divisive statements,  and  also with the positive news coverage Dimple was getting in the press.  So  under the leadership of Sean Kilbane of Charlotte Regional Republican Volunteer Network (a Facebook Page) about 125 Trump supporters from Women for Trump, Citizens for Trump, Hispanics For Trump, Bikers for Trump and Deplorable Pride Charlotte Chapters had a successful Sit In on Monday July 24, 2017 in Charlotte, North Carolina to protest the statements made by Dimple.

Here you will see a Big League Politics exclusive: highlights of a longer recording of interviews of attendees of that Sit In. These are the stories that the group would like the public to see.

Mr. Kilbane says that he has received mixed media attention. Some reporters have been great, but most reporters have distorted the group’s message or even outright shut them out of the story.  Kilbane told Big League Politics that one local reporter from Charlotte refuses to cover the group’s involvement in the Sit In, even though Sean has contacted the reporter and made himself available for an interview.

When asked if there was anything he would like to set the record straight about, Mr. Kilbane replied that he was not asked to comment on a story where Dimple spoke about death threats she had received. “If I had been asked to comment,” Sean said, “I would have told her that I have gotten death threats for my involvement too.”

Sean Kilbane has experienced what many Americans face when trying to get their point of view into public discussions. Many Americans find themselves feeling shut out, ignored, and lied about.

Mr. Kilbane told Big League Politics that he wants the public to see that President Trump has supporters and it was not Russia who chose this President.

So what could be at the heart of Dimple’s attempt to keep the City Council free of Republicans?

Two years ago, Charlotte City Council members passed a civil resolution that said Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police would not enforce federal immigration law, and, with few exceptions, would ignore information about someone being here illegally.

In response, the General Assembly prohibited cities and towns from having such policies, and Charlotte removed most references to immigration from CMPD’s policies.

Dimple’s district is heavily Indian immigrants, like herself.  She is quoted as saying she worries about President Trump’s Executive orders about Illegal Immigrants.

From an article in the Charlotte Observer dated Feb 8th, 2017 Dimple says: “My friends and family are concerned. Everywhere I go, we have people living in fear.”

Apparently Dimple , having experienced what she describes as isolation in a new country and a new school, doesn’t consider what it is like to live in fear or be shut out politically in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Attempts to reach Dimple for comment were unsuccessful.

The Facebook group, Charlotte Regional Republican Volunteer Network,  does not take any donations for their activism, and they do plan to continue to defend President Trump and his supporters.

Democrat Congressman BLOCKS U.S. Veterans After Saying Strzok Deserves Purple Heart

Published

on

After receiving massive blowback and criticism for proclaiming that disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok deserves a purple heart, Congressman Steve Cohen, a Democrat who represents Tennessee’s 9th Congressional District, has decided to block Veterans who are responding to his ignorant remarks on Twitter.

During Strzok’s Congressional testimony on Thursday, Rep. Cohen sparked outrage when he told disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok that he should be awarded a Purple Heart.

“If I could give you a Purple Heart, I would. You deserve one. This has been an attack on you, in a way to attack Mr. Mueller, in the investigation that is to get at Russia collusion involved in our election,” Rep. Cohen said.
Cohen’s belief that Strzok deserves a Purple Heart, one of the highest military decorations that is awarded in the name of the US president to members of the military who are wounded or killed in any action against an enemy of the United States, quickly sparked outrage online by people who knew better than to make such a disrespectful and insulting comparison.

After receiving a lot of backlash the day following the testimony, Cohen said he now regrets what he said. “I regret using the term ‘Purple Heart.’ I used it metaphorically, not literally. I never thought literally it should be given to Agent Strzok.”

Instead of apologizing to Veterans who fought and risked their lives for our country, Rep. Cohen is using the block feature on Twitter so that Veterans and other critics can’t respond to Rep. Cohen.

Rep. Cohen has blocked so many veterans that a Twitter user created a Twitter page for all of the people, mostly veterans, who have been blacked by Cohen.

Hundreds of users took to Twitter on Saturday morning to explain why they are blocked by Rep. Cohen with the hashtag #HeBlockedMeToo.

 

“I wish my four surgeries to rebuild me were metaphoric. You owe us an apology, not a clarification of the words you used,” one U.S. Veteran tweeted.

One user tweeted, “I told him the story of how my uncle got his Purple Heart in Vietnam & died from Agent Orange. Told him he owed Veterans a very public apology. He blocked me.”

Despite these heartfelt messages from twitter users whose family members received the Purple Heart and veterans who were wounded in war, Rep. Cohen has continued to block people, blocking
Generals, Colonels, members of Congress and wounded Veterans.

US Army veteran Mark Footerman, who is also a fellow for Hill Vets, an organization that encourages veterans to create global impact tweeted, “Member of Congress, Rep. Cohen, has blocked me, an Army veteran, for criticizing his deeply disturbing statement that Peter Strzok deserves a Purple Heart because he has sat through a tough congressional hearing.”

A female combat veteran tweeted, “I was blocked but @RepCohen is a coward…this female Marine Veteran will call TN Rep Steve Cohen a coward all day @RepCohen is a coward #RepCohenIsACowardlyDemrat Democrats can’t handle the truth.”

James T, A US Air Force Veteran tweeted, “Funny, I just checked and I’m blocked too and I’ve never tweeted about him or to him. Maybe he blocks all veterans. What an ass.”

A wounded combat veteran tweeted, “This is what happens when a wounded vet stands up to a Congressman who wants to give a Purple Heart to lying, narcissistic cheater. Apparently, he [Rep.Cohen] hates Veterans.”

One user who said they only created Twitter so that they could reply to Cohen’s outrageous comments said they were immediately blocked by the Congressman. “I joined Twitter so that my voice would get through to @RepCohen. Looks like it did. He blocked me 1 hour and 30 min after I created my Twitter account.”

Cohen’s belief that Strzok deserves a Purple Heart, one of the highest military decorations that is awarded in the name of the US president to members of the military who are wounded or killed in any action against an enemy of the United States, quickly sparked outrage online by people who knew better than to make such a disrespectful and insulting comparison.

Not only was Rep. Cohen’s statement a slap in the face to all service men and women who have fought and served for the United States, but his intentional blocking of Veterans suggests that he has no respect or consideration for US veterans. On top of being anti-Veteran, anti-American, and anti-free speech, Rep. Cohen’s actions may have him in direct violation of the law. In May, a federal district court judge ruled that President Trump can’t block people from following his Twitter account. According to the judge, elected officials who block tweets with differing opinions constitutes viewpoint discrimination, which violates the First Amendment.

Thus, if President Trump cannot block twitter users who have opposing views, neither can Rep. Cohen, who is also an elected US politician.

Rep. Cohen’s office did not reply with a request for comment as to why the Democrat Congressman is intentionally blocking US veterans and Conservatives on Twitter.

Here is a collection of tweets from other US veterans and twitter users who also took to social media to ask why they had been blocked by Rep.Cohen.
