Yesterday, Glenn Nocera, the President of the Brooklyn Young Republican Club, Member of the Republican State Committee from the 44th AD and a “Republicans for Change” activist suffered a major political set back when the case, in which he was one of the named petitioner-plaintiffs, was dismissed by NYS Supreme Court Justice David Schmidt
Overnight, in a game of Cyber- Spy vs. Spy, Nocera showed that he is still one of Brooklyn’s top independent operators by shutting down all attempts by the county organization to get out their “good news” on the Brooklyn GOP Facebook page — you see Nocera has managed to become the administrator of that media spot
There is a very strange post on the Brooklyn GOP Radio >Official< Show Blog this morning (See “More #EpicFail: Nocera Throws Facebook Tantrum, "Steals" Facebook Group” by Gene Berardelli, 3/1/14, Brooklyn GOP Radio >Official< Show Blog [http://brooklyngopradio.blogspot.com/2014/03/more-epicfail-nocera-throws-facebook.html]). The Berardelli post is a full-throated attack on Glenn Nocera, but it focuses on Nocera’s administration and control of the Brooklyn GOP Facebook page of late, especially yesterday. A particular item in Berardelli’s craw is that Nocera has shut Mr. B out of that Facebook page.
Gene Berardelli needs to step back, take some deep breaths and decompress. He is stepping on what should be the Brooklyn GOP’s only talking point today >>> County Chairman Craig Eaton’s big win in court over State Senator Martin Golden is a big, big deal. <<< Nocera’s capture of the Brooklyn GOP Facebook page was accomplished months ago — nothing about it, or what Nocera is doing with it, needs to be put out there today or tomorrow or the next day.
Furthermore, if the purpose of the attacks on Nocera are to silence or inhibit him, they have been a complete failure. The media wars between Nocera and Berardelli have gone on for years. Any objective observer would have to acknowledge that Glenn Nocera has been the big winner as a result of many of those fights. During the era of the Berardelli attacks, Nocera has risen from a mere GOP county committee member and failed GOP candidate for office to become President of the Brooklyn Young Republican Club, in which position he is one of the most quoted Republican operators in Brooklyn by the city-wide media, and he was selected as the Male Member of the Republican State Committee from the 44th AD, in which position he is an executive member of the Kings County Republican Organization. In addition, Nocera has been an active participant in each and every successful or significant GOP race in Brooklyn over the last five years; and now it looks like he has completely outmaneuvered Berardelli, Eaton and Company for control of the Brooklyn GOP Facebook page. A strong argument can be made that a lot of Nocera’s advance within the Brooklyn GOP is due to the media attacks by Berardelli — and Nocera’s outburst at Craig Eaton at the 2013 County Convention was certainly directly attributable to his treatment at the hands of Berardelli and others lined-up with Eaton.
At a time when Craig Eaton’s Brooklyn GOP should be focused like a laser on Eaton’s principal antagonist Marty Golden, Berardelli’s blunderbuss attacks on Glenn Nocera are just counter-productive. The Berardelli Bad wolf needs to stop trying to blow down “Piggy” Nocera’s house of bricks — it’s a waste of time and effort. Besides, who’s going to think you can beat Marty Golden when you can’t seem to be able to beat Glenn Nocera ?
