“You KKK! You fascist USA.”
Therese Okoumou, the woman who was arrested last month for trying to scale the Statue of Liberty as a protest of U.S. immigration policy, went on a bizarre rant outside a New York court this weekend.
Priscilla DeGregory reports at the New York Post:
Statue of Liberty climber spews anti-American chant outside court
The immigrant rights activist who ruined July 4 for tourists visiting the Statue of Liberty when she scaled the green lady and forced the icon’s evacuation, was in Manhattan federal on Friday pushing for a no-jail guarantee from a judge — and then promptly spewed an anti-American message outside court…
Her lawyer, Ron Kuby, asked a judge to determine ahead of trial if he will sentence Okoumou to jail time before she will take a plea deal — something federal judges must do in certain misdemeanor cases, Kuby argued…
Outside court, Kuby said Okoumou’s “non-violent civil disobedience…should not be penalized with a jail sentence. That should be rewarded.”
Okoumou wore a green dress with the words, “I really care, why won’t u?” written on it – an apparent reference to the “I really don’t care, do u?” jacket worn by Melania Trump.
Outside court dozens of supporters cheered on the Republic of Congo born woman – who is a naturalized citizen — and she chanted to the crowd, “America you mother f–kers! You drug addicts! You KKK! You fascist USA.”
Here’s the video. Very strong language warning:
The liberal media, which doesn’t want to talk about Okoumou’s horrid rant, chose instead to focus on how she ‘trolled Melania Trump’ through her clothing choice. There are literally dozens of articles which made this the focus of the story. Here’s one from the Huffington Post:
Melania Trump Gets Trolled By Statue Of Liberty Protester For ‘I Don’t Care’ Jacket
A Statue of Liberty protester who demonstrated against the Trump administration’s harsh immigration policies mocked Melania Trump’s controversial “I don’t care” jacket at her New York court appearance Friday.
In June, the first lady wore a jacket that read “I really don’t care, do u?” as she headed to an immigrant children’s detention center in Texas.
Patricia Okoumou, who climbed the foundation of Lady Liberty on July 4 to protest the forced separation of immigrant parents from their children, wore a dress for her appearance in Manhattan Federal Court that read, front and back, “I really care, why won’t u? Be Best.”
“Be Best” refers to Melania Trump’s program to promote children’s well-being and battle cyberbullying, which she launched in May. The first lady’s top policy aide who helped initiate the program, Reagan Hedlund, quit last week to work on foreign policy issues, though it’s not clear where, Politico reported.
See? This story isn’t about what Okoumou said. It’s about Melania Trump getting owned.
What media bias?
