Anarchists plotted on Wednesday to disrupt the Thanksgiving Day Parade — feeling emboldened after cops allowed them to run free on major roadways like the FDR Drive and the West Side Highway, The Post has learned.
“The police aren’t going to arrest us and they are not going to shoot us,” an organizer who calls himself “Magiq” boasted to a group of two dozen rabble-rousers at a Union Square planning session Wednesday night.
“Don’t let consumerism outshine injustice. Keep the NYC protests going, stomp right over Macy’s thanksgiving parade,” wrote a user named Aleks!
“Stopping the parade would make such a huge statement,” added a user named Luna Koshka, who added, “We can see snoopy next year. But Mike Browns[sic] mother will never see her child again.”
“We feel empowered. We feel rejuvenated right now,” Senegal Mapry, 18, of Manhattan, said during an earlier gathering at Union Square Wednesday.
“The police are backing down because they don’t want to cause any more riots. If they put their hands on another minority, all-out war will break out.”
Sources said Mayor de Blasio ordered the NYPD to give a free ride to the mobs that blocked the Lincoln Tunnel, Brooklyn Bridge and other major thoroughfares Tuesday night.
“It’s coming from City Hall,” a source said. “We’re being told if it’s only traffic violations, don’t do anything.”
