Buffalo and New York speak up and say Trump is wrong.

Told of Trump's tweet, Victoria Ross, executive director of the Western New York Peace Center, was aghast. "Oh, that's ridiculous," said Ross, who has known Gugino for years. "They are just plain making things up."

The reporter on the OANN piece was Kristian Rouz -- who, according to the Daily Beast, also works for the Russian propaganda outfit Sputnik.

Ross said Gugino is a longtime peace activist from Amherst and a devotee of the Catholic Worker Movement, a social justice effort launched during the Great Depression by activist Dorothy Day. "He is devoted to nonviolence," Ross said.

"#MartinGugino is a peace activist and volunteer with the Catholic Worker movement. Why spread rumors about someone who embodies the Beatitudes?" tweeted Rev. James Martin, a prominent Jesuit priest. "This is sick," tweeted Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul. "The President continues to use his platform to peddle conspiracy theories, this time about a peaceful protester and fellow New Yorker. Not sure how this is supposed to bring our country together..."

"He’s a gentle person who really believes that he must stand up for what he thinks is right," said his friend Terrence Bisson, who has worked with Gugino on Latin American issues through the Western New York Peace Center.

"That’s why he went to the demonstration. He would never resist physically any kind of orders," Bisson told The Buffalo News Friday. "He’s a bit frail, not because of his age. He has some health problems."


It annoys me to now end that media and politicians cannot come clean and simply say Trump is a liar. What the hell are they afraid of?

1. As pointed out elsewhere, OANN didn't use someone without a Russian accent

for their report.

3. Put in more direct terms, she works for the Russian government.

From the article.....

The reporter on the OANN piece was Kristian Rouz -- who, according to the Daily Beast, also works for the Russian propaganda outfit Sputnik.


I'm sure Reagan would be pleased to know one of his successors loves quoting Russian officials!

2. Trump's lie here really undercuts the idea that Antifa is scary and dangerous...

A frail, elderly man who can be knocked out and sent to the ICU with a push is the spooky dark force that Trumpers are soiling their shorts over? Okay, brave patriots.

6. Nothing like a common enemy to pull folks

together. “Not sure how this is supposed to bring our country together..."”
