Marijuana activist claims he’s behind Brooklyn Bridge’s white flags…

The Rev. Bud Green told the Daily News on Thursday that he thought it was funny the move was interpreted as a terrorism risk.

A marijuana activist says he’s the one who smoked Brooklyn Bridge security by plotting the swap of the American flags on both towers with white ones.

The Rev. Bud Green claimed responsibility for the July 22 deed on his website.

Green, 49, called the Daily News on Thursday to say that the flag replacement was actually the first part of what was to be a two-part strategy, with another set of banners going up later. But the increased NYPD surveillance on the bridge put a kibosh on a second switch.

“It was interesting that nobody knew what to make of it,” Green said. “It was interesting that people took it as a terror risk. We believe in nonviolent civil disobedience. The government has everybody scared s——s. Was Martin Luther King Jr. a terrorist? Was Abbie Hoffman a terrorist? The government is trying to silence people.”

Green, who’s based in Southern California, said he’s the founder of the POT Party — People Opposing Tyranny — which is pro-marijuana and anti-government.

He said “people in New York” contacted him after he posted a “Pledge of No Allegiance” anti-government screed on his website July 4.

He came up with the idea of swapping out the American flags. Green said the men who actually did the job are “professionals” and that he doesn’t know their names.

“The people who contacted me are big Obama supporters and they’re disappointed in him. He fed the military-industrial complex,” Green said.

Green identified himself as a former producer for the “Jerry Springer Show” and a marijuana activist since the 1980s.

Asked to verify his involvement in the plot, he replied, “You look at my history and you’ll see I’m telling the truth. I didn’t personally do it, but it was my idea. I believe in being showy and being political. You have to make a spectacle of yourself.”

He also noted he is the only person who actually has claimed responsibility for the stunt.

He said the white flags were symbolic in several respects.

“It keeps people wondering what they were about. It stands for peace. It stands for surrender. It would make people think about what’s going in. Also the wars. Our solution to the wars is for people to smoke weed and chill out.”

The plan was to follow up the white flags at a later date with two more flags, a large green marijuana leaf on a white background and the words “Don’t Tread on Me” and a second banner with a General Electric logo covered with a Nazi swastika with bombs and guns in the background. He said he picked GE because it owns NBC and he wants to draw attention to large corporations owning the media.

“The government, the media, they control the flag and that flag is bull–t,” he said. “It doesn’t stand for freedom. It stands for tyranny.”

The placement of two bleached-white flags where two U.S. flags were supposed to be proudly waving above the bridge’s two 276-foot towers was front-page news.

A New York City Police Officer Placed a Pregnant Woman in a Chokehold

NYPD Chokeholds Pregnant Woman

Advocacy group People Organizing and Working for Empowerment and Respect released images of the incident Monday to the Daily News.

“She was grilling in front of her home, not committing any crime,” former City Councilman Charles Barron told The New York Post of the incident. “We want these people out of our community.”

Use of the chokehold by New York police officers has been banned for more than 20 years, according to Reuters. Yet the outlet reports that the department has a “backlog” of chokehold complaints currently under investigation.

The latest chokehold incident comes just over a week after Staten Island man Eric Garner died while being placed in a chokehold by a member of the NYPD. At the time, Garner was being arrested on charges stemming from illegal cigarette sales. A bystander captured the incident on video.

After a meeting with Garner’s family and federal prosecutors in Brooklyn on Friday, activist Rev. Al Sharpton called for an end to the use of the chokehold nationwide.

“We cannot just depend — and this is important — on police policy to stop the choke hold,” Sharpton said, per Reuters. “We need a federal precedent.”

New York-based M7 Tech Partners won’t have outside investors or limited partners, Goldfarb said. It will invest in startups that focus on digital media and consumer technology, Goldfarb said, adding that the fund has made an undisclosed investment in Hullabalu Inc., which creates digital children’s books. Hullabalu’s other investors include Reddit Inc. co-founder Alexis Ohanian.
