Naked Cowboy chased off by NYC protesters who say he was 'antagonizing' at City Hall

Recommended Posts

It was a brief appearance.

 

Times Square’s guitar-slinging Naked Cowboy — who famously croons in little more than tighty-whities — drifted south to the anti-cop protests outside City Hall on Tuesday, but was quickly chased away by angry demonstrators who accused him of trying to rustle up trouble.

 

The barely clothed busker, real name Robert Burck, found a chilly reception when he arrived around 2 p.m. at City Hall Park, where hundreds of demonstrators have vowed to dig in unless the next budget includes a $1 billion funding cut to the NYPD.

 

“Very nice meeting you!” Burck called to the throngs while strumming his guitar and walking off down Chambers Street.

 

“Get the f--- up outta here!” yelled one less-than-amused protester who followed him to make sure he got the hell out of Dodge. “We’re gonna make sure y’all leave!”

 

“You supported Donald Trump,” another demonstrator could be heard saying through a megaphone at the famously star-spangled Burck, drawing boos from the crowd.

 

The crowd also verbally assailed a black man accompanying Burck, calling him an “Uncle Tom.”

Poor headline, he was not naked at all, "Partially Clothed" would have been a better description.

I wonder how defunding a police service can benefit any community, more money for training surely, better oversight of officers, more accountability, these items cost money , defunding does not make sense to me.

 

A vacuum would be left and we saw what happens in middle east when vacuums are left after toppling regimes, they are filled with often more nasty regimes.

 

 

The man calls himself the Naked Cowboy. A stage name, if you will.

It's not entirely about defunding the police. There are very strong communist connotations. I was there Friday. Their list of demands also includes abolishment of land ownership, for-profit business, and more I can't remember at the moment. It's not about Mr. Floyd, it was just the trigger they were waiting for.

This is a left wing movement who are into all sort of unpleasentness like nazism and KKK and are using this as a guise to buck the establishment.

I believe it was the mayor who proposed the $1bn funding cut. Political ploy to get money moved from arming for WWIIII, massive O.T., and harassment missions, into funding the things you mention.

Opposite ends of the spectrum I thought.

A bit like the Democratic Republic of North Korea.

 

Not sure when we last saw any of the "progressive left" committing Genocide though.

I don't think he was antagonizing. Just an attention wh*re like the protesters.
