Protesters Attack Trump’s Immigration Order

A multitude of people poured onto the Dartmouth Green mid-day Saturday after Al Nur, the Muslim Student Association at Dartmouth College, emailed out about the event.

The protesters, including students, faculty, and community members, carried signs and chanted while marching through downtown Hanover by way of Main Street.

They were protesting many things, although their foremost concern was President Trump’s recent executive order temporarily halting immigration from certain countries. Some of the chants included: “No hate, no fear, immigrants are welcome here,” and, “Hey hey, ho ho, the Muslim ban has got to go.”

Notable signs read: “Immigrants are America,” “No ban / No wall / All are welcome,” “Welcome Refugees (Ban Trump!),” and “Immigrants get the job done.”

Some protesters wore pink knitted hats intended to symbolize female genitalia, a throwback to the recent Women’s March. In addition to the religious Muslims who took part, a number of non-Muslims donned hijabs and traditional head wear from Muslim majority countries.

After about an hour of marching, the protesters made their way back to the Dartmouth Green. Protesters concluded the demonstration by forming a circle, holding hands, and singing This Land is Your Land.

    The new Brownshirts of the 21st century.

    Ignore them.

    Bet they didn’t march and throw a tantrum when Obama did the same thing in 2011 & 2013. They are a laughing stock.

  • susansylvia

    What? They didn’t sing Kumbaya?

    • fribble

      They did.
      They just didn’t want to report it.
      They thought the “Hey hey, ho, ho” from the 60’s and yelling at the morons who were there what to yell next, would be more than enough.

  • Bill Cosby

    I wonder if the survivors of the Orlando nightclub shooting were there.

    • fribble

      Sure they were.

      Along with San Bernadino, Fort Hood, Little Rock the Boston Marathon…Nice, Paris, London, etc. etc. etc.

    Al Nur, the Muslim Student Association at Dartmouth College, called out the “Community” for the event.
    Has Al Nur ever called out the Dartmouth “Community” to condemn and march around and shout slogans when there is a radical wacko Muslim mass murder or bombing in the US? Or anywhere else in the world?
    Has anyone noticed that everything they do is self serving, just like all of the left?
    Where were the marches and yelling for the massacre of gays at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando where 49 were murdered>
    Did the Dartmouth LGBTQ+ “Community” and the Dartmouth College administration call for a day, week or month of prayer and protest about radical nutbar Islamists doing this kind of “thing.”
    I don’t think so.
    Which proves once again that the left is full of sh-t.
    And that they are a dangerous, Anti-American group of hacks, crooks, fools and accessories, if not more, to national and worldwide anti-democratic, power mad activities, designed to intimidate you and empower them at your expense.
    They want you to submit or die.
    New Hampshire motto; “Live Free Or Die”
    These two concepts are not reconcilable

    Kudos to the protesters! We need more like them, rather than the bigots posting here!

    • Byrd Westbrook

      Are you a bigot? You sound like one.

    • James Goss

      You need to get a life and act as a reasonable adult. Such as fribble said or go back underneath the rock you crawled out from.

  • Byrd Westbrook

    This land belongs to citizens of the United States; ILLEGAL ALIENS should go home. Migration might be beautiful, but it is not the same as ILLEGALLY crossing national borders.

  • Sam American

    HA HA HA what a bunch of morons.

    Anyone in this crowd actually a student at Dartmouth. See older folks and a young high schooler. Lots of protests claiming to be college students in actuality include very few students. The radicals tend to be a handful of students and a bunch of admin, profs, and prof spouses…dragging kids along the way.

    Also nice tight shot, what are there 8 people?

    If Obama had a politically radical mother this is what she would be and would look like.

    Remember at its inception of the college community in New Hampshire Dartmouth was a Christian Community
