Mayor Coogan responds after Neo-Nazi group protests Fall River Drag Queen Story Time

Published

on

The Mayor of Fall River has responded after a group of protestors attempted to stop residents from entering the library to attend an event this weekend.

On Saturday morning, members of Nationalist Social Club, also known as NSC-131, were outside of the Fall River Public Library on North Main Street protesting Drag Queen Story Time being put on by the Fall River Pride Committee.

According to witnesses, the large group was hurling slurs at those attending and trying to stop people from attending the event in the library. Fall River Police also responded to the scene.

Fall River Reporter asked Mayor Paul Coogan for comment on what transpired this weekend.

“Well, this weekend was full of highs and lows- holiday lights and an illegal mattress dumping, student musicals and a tense situation at the Fall River Public Library on Saturday. This weekend, a group of protestors, who are not from Fall River, traveled here to disturb an event.

“First, I want to thank the Fall River Police Department for handling the situation on the ground and ensuring the safety of our residents. Second, I want to openly and simply condemn the messages that were being shared by the protestors outside of the library. Countless men and women fought bravely in World War II and other conflicts AGAINST the very values those protestors spoke of. Fall River is a diverse city, and I believe we’ve always been better because of that.

“While we do have to respect everyone’s right to protest and use free speech, I feel sick knowing that these individuals- who are not members of our community- came here only to cause chaos and disruption. I think that respectful conversations on different opinions is a good thing, but that is not what this was.

“I have had residents reach out to me because they are upset that the library, a place they love and grew up in, was the home for such a display. I agree- no child going into our library, for any reason or event, should have to witness the hostility, hate and vulgar language that protestors showed this Saturday. To the families, hardworking library staff and event planners who had to deal with the protestors, I am truly sorry.

“Going forward, we will work with the organizers, the library and our public safety officials to keep everyone safe if protestors return. No matter what, we will continue to practice tolerance, respect and love for our neighbors here in Fall River.”

According to the Anti-Defamation League, “the Nationalist Social Club (NSC) or 131 Crew (131 is alphanumeric code for ACA, Anti-Communist Action and Anti-Capitalist Action) is a neo-Nazi group with small, autonomous regional chapters around the country. Members consider themselves soldiers fighting a war against a hostile, Jewish-controlled system that is deliberately plotting the extinction of the white race. Their goal is to form an underground network of white men who are willing to fight against their perceived enemies through localized direct actions.”

    I wondered if the Mayor would consider bringing his grandchildren to one of these sort of as a show of support and get the press out there to highlight it. That would be good I think.

    ” . Countless men and women fought bravely in World War II and other conflicts AGAINST the very values those protestors spoke of. ”

    Abhorrent as these people are Countless men and women fought bravely in world war II and other conflicts so ALL American citizens can have freedom of speech. As long as they were protesting peacefully they have a right to do so no matter if I agree with them or not.

      I’m not into fat ugly men dressed like sluts. I’m married to a beautiful woman and have a loving son. Too bad you don’t know the satisfaction of being a functional human. Have a shifty day you fascist pig.

      Well, the ‘drag queens’ (aka mentally ill men who dress as women for sexual gratification) do not show their faces either and they are the ones enticing children to sit on their lap … not the nazis. In fact, did Mayor Coogan order the Police Chief to conduct a CORI check on the ‘performers’ who will be using the Public Library space to specifically perform with minors under the age of 14 ? what will the city’s liability be if an “Indecent Assault and Battery On A Child Under 14” occurs at one of these events? (MGL 265 Sec. 13B) Does Fall River Corporation Counsel Alan Rumsey have an opinion on this? Are there any police or protective services personnel monitoring these events ? Does Bishop DeCuhna (who lives nearby the library have an opinion on this? Or is it all just good innocent fun ? Does Mayor Coogan or any city leadership understand the irony that in an old and depressed New England Milltown such as Fall River; a ‘Drag Queen story hour’ at the public library fits in about as much as the surreal scene of Nazi protesters in town.
      However, I’d take a bunch of ‘Nazis’ yelling in the street over a bunch of male sexual predators inside the public library… what about you ? Coogan needs to show leadership on this and fire the overpaid library director immediately

        All of the performers were CORI checked, but you wouldn’t know that…. Instead of doing actual research on the event you just sat behind a screen whining and making things up to soothe your impotent ego.

          “Research the event”. What a filthy animal. Why would anyone Research an event for a bunch of fat ugly men dressed like slutty prostitutes. Have your head examined. Hopefully you never reproduce!

          There were NOT any CORI checks on the demented men dressed as women seeking sexualize small children.
          You groomers are pushing your assault on the community too far and I fear there might be unpleasant consequences

            Actually there were CORI checks done as it’s a requirement for anyone hosting an event at the library. You wouldn’t know this because you don’t do the least bit of research and like to whine from behind a screen.

            If he wasn’t such a liar then he wouldn’t have a problem. He wouldn’t be getting sued into oblivion if he wasn’t such a clown,even his own ex wife says he’s a deadbeat loser.

            Alex Jones is the tip of the spear in fighting the New World Order. You are an idiot sleeping on a cat piss soaked mattress in your mother’s basement. I take it you also dress in drag considering your adamant support for child sexual groomers. I have been advised that your membership dues for the ADL and the SPLC are in arrears. If you do not re-new racists, bigots, homophobes, xenophobes, and Russian space aliens will gain a foothold against America. Make sure you do your research before responding and I don’t mean going over your 2nd grade coloring books again. I have 2 Mommies or I have 2 Daddies doesn’t quite meet the level of Academic research we’re looking for. πŸŽͺ🀑

            Lmfao you’re completely coming unhinged and should lay off the fentanyl. Alex Jones was using dead children as a way to make money and fool lemmings like you into believing into a new world order. Do you sleep with tin foil on your head to avoid 5g waves and Jewish lasers?

            What dead children? Making money? You’re totally brain dead. CNN and MSDNC have got you eating whatever shit they serve you retards. Alex barely spoke of Sandy Hook but you’re too brainwashed to realize that. Alex had a guest named Wolfgang Halbig who is a school safety expert who pointed out many anomalies during the Sandy Hook FEMA Capstone Event, but again you’re too stupid to know that. You could never trigger me because your IQ is way too low. You couldn’t even stimulate a baboon by sniffing its ArmPit. How does it feel being an NPC and smelling like feline urine and running out of lint rollers?

    It’s hilarious πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ how easily you fools get baited. 1.Those guys aren’t even aryan, they look like a bunch of mutts. 2. The drag queen is in an intimate relationship with one the protesters, i seen them feel each other up in the bank parking lot and doing the poppers.

    The question is simple. If you had to choose, Who would you leave your five year old son or grandson with NSC131 or these homosexual child predators? Note: If you leave him with NSC 131, he’ll get fresh air and activity come home and fall asleep. If you leave him with the sodomites he’ll come home crying and won’t sleep for days.
