Anti-Racism Protest Set For 2:45 PM Today At Ulysses Post Office

Organizers of an anti-racism protest set for today will meet at the Ulysses Post Office at 2:45 PM for a rally to begin at 3:00 PM. 

The protest is in response to a white supremacy group advertising a National Socialist meet & greet in that Potter County Borough for today starting at 3:45 PM, also scheduled to meet at the post office.

Organizer Joe Leschner said "We cannot allow this element into our county. I was born and raised here, and although many of us have different views politically, I believe that most of us believe in inclusion. We must hold a peaceful protest. My goal is to show them that they must go elsewhere when they see the support we have. Please share this on your page and invite everyone you know! NOT IN OUR COUNTY!!!"

"People are welcome to speak as long as it's on topic to our current concern. Or something else that signifies peace. 

Signs are welcomed and encouraged. Again, something that pertains to our current event or peace.

Be respectful and courteous. And I believe we will have a successful event."

I'm not what they're for but why not just leave them be. There's black movements. I don't see the difference. People are allowed to have different beliefs. All this is going to do is cause a fight and probably KY cops being involved. A whole lot of drama. If people want something to stand up against why not protest for our rights to government us trying to take away. Why not go to up to the school and protest art,woodshop, and whatever is being taken away from the kids. However that must not be important because they have cell phones instead. Smh. There's bigger things to be worrying about than a white lives matter movement.

Its not a white lives matter movement. They believe all non-white americans should be returned to their "country of origin" by force. This is why i launched a little diatribe about the quality of the newspaper reporting around here a few days ago. People think that its some kind of policy disagreement over immigration. Its not. These are bona fide cross burning,lynching, hood wearing nazis. Silence condones their actions and emboldens them. Three cheers to Joe Leschner for putting this event together.

No we should not allow this racist element to exist, I hate racists and racism, its ignorant and shows your uneducated! I see confederate flags and its alarming. I love President Obama and voted for him twice, sounds like your racist to me.....just pointing out the obvious by your uneducated comments. Our rights are not being taken away from our country, your part of the problem.

Isn't their goal for only all white race with all women barefoot and pregnant until they are in the grave?

Are you white? Do you have children of another race? Are you a Christian? Are you in fear of your life and that of your family?

Are you white? Do you have children of another race? Are you in fear of you life and the life of your family? Do you even understand what white supremacy is?

This group does not belong here, they represent hate against any one who is not white, mostly people od color and including the Jews. They are filled with vile hate for others and it is clear as this represented on the Burnside's online websites. They are modern day Hitler lovers. Get them outahere!

I do not share their beliefs, however I am a true believer in the United States Constitution, See First Amendment. Now many of these groups thrive on Publicity, why give them any. To those that want to prevent them from their " Lawful Activity" See First Amendment. Those wonderful rights are granted to All, even if we disagree with their beliefs.

Pretty safe place for a pro white rally. Why not have it in baltimore or washington DC?

My father fought in WW2 and carried the scars of that of that war with him to his grave in the late 80's. I don't agree with everything going on politically in the country right now,but I don't want to see it going down the bloody Nazi path.

I can't get over all of the confederate flags outside of houses, trailers, and beat up pickup trucks. Poverty leads to ignorance and hatred.

I heard that the Kardashians were invited to speak-you might learn something from them-NOT

Bill Lindsley said...

There's a real genius,, how does a confederate flag lead to poverty and hatred?? Gotta be a libtard... And all you people preaching about sending the non-whites back to the country of their origin??? I bet the American Indian has been saying that for centuries. I see nothing wrong with someone coming to this country to better themselves,, providing they do it legally!! Everyone writing on here has an immigrant in their family tree!!!

Bill, you have the right to your thoughts. You are lucky to write as you do. Must be a local middle school dropout living of the system. All people should feel safe in their home town and country.

Just hoping to read here that it was done peaceably ,and over by now ???
Sure do appreciate folks who were able to join in the peaceful protest, any police who needed to be there, and thankful that possibly rain deterred that group planning hateful burning (nd esp those i feel are cowards by concealing their faces).
We all have the right to be anonymous, here and other places.But ADULTS hiding their faces ?
It is sad to realize that those who have so much hate in their hearts are around us and can be dangerous. Many of us hunt, own guns, will protect themselves,but we welcome everyone to be our neighbors and friends.If we are not compatable to be friends,we still wish you well and find peace.

Yes I am white. No I am not racist. No I don't fear the life of myself or my children. I can safely say that I can defend myself and my children if need be. I'm just saying what is the point in a rally against them? Think it will change their mind? Doubtful. The best thing is to not give it any attention. If you think about it they're trying to shove their belief down your throat as much as you are trying to shove your belief down their throat. You're telling me because they're having a stupid meeting that they're going around killing people of other races that aren't white? I believe everyone is entitled to their own beliefs whether I believe in it nor not. I don't believe one race is more entitled than the other. We are all humans. Do I believe in abortion? No but I sure as hell am not going to gather up a anti-abortion rally. Did the anti-racism protest stop them from doing what they were going to do? Did it change any of their minds?

Does anyone remember all these racial tensions about 8 years ago? I don't, except for the idiot that was over on rt 49 for a while.
We have one guy and his political party to blame.
Before you say here is another Obama hater, lets see if you remember this.
Only in office for a short time a black professor is pulled over for DUI.
The president invites him to whitehouse to have a beer summit. I think the cop was invited also.
The result...the police "acted stupidly"
A black man is shot while committing a crime and all hell brakes loose..
What do we hear from B.O. if I had a son he would look like him.
Do we hear about the white, brown, or any others shot? No we don't because it does not fit their objective.
In nearly every case they would be alive snd in jail, but alive if they would hsve complied with the police and followed the rules.
I also see a lot of comments on here about we don't need racist, then they go on to say things about white trash, trailer parks and the rebel flags.
That is the trure liberal way. Equality for all till you don't agree with me then I am great, smarter and your nothing.
Sounds like hatred to me.

I find it hilarious that if you don't think the confederate flag is racist, then you must be poor and must have not went to school.

Actually,, a high school graduate,, with numerous certifications and licenses. I also work 40+ hours a week,, in numerous fields. I also have enough crack in my ass to identity myself.

I'm not a liberal, nor a democrat or a republican. Too many labels being tossed about these days.

They are entitled to have their meeting, despite their beliefs and intended actions. Others are similarly free to protest if they choose.

I agree with posters who believe people flying the confederate flags around here tend to be on the stupid side. I wonder why they do it, and I wonder if any of them have ever read about the flag and it's history and symbolism. I doubt it, because I've seen these guys behave at other times around the county and they are-sorry to say and label them-immature, simple minded, low IQ, belligerent rednecks. And those are their better traits.

Before you pretend to be a good ole southern boy, go to your nearest library (if you can find it) and read some southern literature and know more about the southern tradition in America. Then maybe you'll be justified in flying the flag because you think it could stand for something real, instead of flying it because you've yet to grow up.

An educated person would know the difference between your and you're. Just saying.

Also to that point, you are alarmed by a flag? If you think the rebel flag stands for slavery, you probably also think that the revolutionary war was started solely on a tea tax.

Anonymous said...

I'm not at all alarmed by the flag, and don't think it stands for slavery. That's my point. But there are reasons not to fly it, and I stand by my thoughts that those flying it around here are just knuckleheads looking for attention. All you need to do is watch the jerks driving the trucks with the flag displayed, or check out the locals flying it in their yards. They're just angry young white boys.

I think many of these children have relatives cringing watching a relative standing for southern pride after so much was given to keep our great nation unified.

Some thoughtful comments and some ignorant. If you want your points to be taken seriously, post your name. Don't be a coward.

Great job Joe Leschner, but we didn't get the hint we are here to stay and 50 supporters vs 30 protesters? I'll take those odds. We outnumbered you. So this is our county not yours. I was born and raised here to and I will not sit by while scum try to ruin it here. 88
