Jeopardy --- "...Male, Pale and Stale..." !!! --- "Alex, what is the Brooklyn GOP ???"


Trish James caused a little brouhaha recently when she happened on a phrase that  >>> SHE <<<  liked so much that she is reported to have used it at least twice.....



Some folks finally got around to reacting,  and they reacted somewhat negatively to what they saw as an objectionable comment by a possible NYS Attorney General



In a somewhat different context,  I think that Ms. James gave us Republicans a "gift of great price"   ---   a catch phrase that quickly and 100% accurately bespeaks what is wrong with the Brooklyn GOP,  here and now


WHAT TISH JAMES SAID  ---  AND WHEN, WHERE AND HOW SHE SAID IT

Steve Witt on his blog  “Kings County Politics” (KCP) got into his not-very-far-back machine to report on this tid-bit,  just this way:   “If the state legislature names city Public Advocate Letitia James as the interim state attorney general then elderly white male state prosecutors currently working in that office might consider dusting off their resume to look for a new job….   That after James has stated on several occasions that she is tired of male, pale and stale people – a seemingly presumption of prejudice against elderly white males….   James made the statement repeatedly and too much applause at the New York State Black and Puerto Rican Legislative Caucus weekend in February. Specifically, she made the statements at the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Breakfast on Feb. 17 in Albany….   James reiterated the startling trifecta of stereotyping, including age, gender and race, on a recent episode of the online media site, The Wrap. In both known instances of James using this phrase she did so in context of advocating for more female empowerment….   The public advocate’s preconceived notions comes as sources say a worker in James office lobbied several state lawmakers from Brooklyn asking for their support in getting her the interim AG job….”  (See  “James’ “Male, Pale & Stale” Comments Could Affect AG Plans”  by Stephen Witt,  5/9/18,  Kings County Politics/  Attorney General   [https://www.kingscountypolitics.com/james-male-pale-stale-comments-could-affect-her-ag-plans/]).  

What’s the big deal ?   After all,  she didn’t refer to New York City as  “Hymie Town”  or anything really offensive like that…..   So  ---  she sort of looks down on older white men staying on board as Deputy AGs   ---  what’s wrong with that ???   Besides,  before the Eric Schneiderman kerfuffle nobody cared one wit  (see what I did there ?).

It’s America;  isn’t everybody entitled to an opinion ?????    But enough about Trish James’ opinion;   let’s look at  >>> MY OPINION <<<  

GALEWYN MASSEY SAYS:  “HOORAY !!  TRISH JAMES HAS SHOWN US THE WAY !!!  SHOUT:   “ALLELUIA,  ALLELUIA,  ALLELUIA !!!!!”  

I don’t know nuffin bout birthin NYS Deputy AGs,   but I do know that the Kings County Republican Organization as it has been set up by and under Marty Golden and Ted Ghorra is  >>> WAY TOO MALE  ---  WAY TOO PALE  ---  WAY TO STALE  ---  AND  ---  MOST IMPORTANT  ---  WAY TOO FRAIL <<<  

The current Brooklyn GOP is an infamous thing that needs to be completely crushed in 2018.  Why do I Brooklyn’s independent Republican voice say that ???   It’s because the Kings County Republican Organization set up by and under Marty Golden and Ted Ghorra  is manifestly  >>> anti-women (sexist) <<<;  >>> anti-minority  (racist) <<<;  and  >>> anti-young people (age-ist) <<<
  

    -----    AND THERE AIN’T NOBODY OUT THERE WITH ANY HONESTY AND INTEGRITY,  WHO CAN SAY ANY OF THAT AIN’T THE TRUTH    -----

More delusions of grandeur by GM and Bob. We have to retake the Brooklyn GOP. It’s possible. Having the Brooklyn GOP completely destroyed is exactly what the Brooklyn Conservatives have been trying to accomplish for years.

Speaking of delusions...

Has anyone on social media noticed the very vocal, very public, very fellating endorsements of Brooklyn's YR President?

Either he's in trouble and needs Marty's help getting re-elected YR President, or he's some delicate flower that needs constant, fawning affirmation by people around him.

It really looks strange.

We have no real Young Republicans just like we have no real Brooklyn Republican Party. We need to clean house at the next reorg. People formerly loyal to Golden are sick of Jerry’s puppets running the GOP into the ground. It’s time to take back the party.

So the GOP has resorted to begging Schumers stooge Preet to run as republican for attorney general

Jerry has already staffed Saperstein’s campaign full of his peeps in exchange for the usual promises that never come to fruition. If the Vitos have been led to believe they’re getting paid they better get that in writing asap because between Liam, Gerry O, Ray Denaro and steeplechase, Saperstein will probably be paying them in skittles.

Apparently they are pulling the same thing with Steve as the council race last year, which is why Capano abandoned ship

Capano didn't abandon ship. He rammed his boat into the rocks repeatedly in the primary, then revved the engine and aimed directly for the bottom of the ocean in the general.

What if I told you that everything that's been made as a comment to this post has been about people who are male, pale and stale, just like the most of the rest of the Brooklyn Republican Party.

Next you'll be telling me how BLACK Brandon Washington is, and explain all the weird moves to keep him afloat and get him re-elected as YR president.

The only reason Kassar let puppet Ghorra back Saperstein is because he agreed to hire all of Kassar’s people. You’d think Saperstein would have learned his lesson from last year but obviously not.

The vitos and denaro are Kassar’s people??? Liam and Steve have been friends and Liam if you haven’t seen is on Grimm’s campaign. You’re assuming things but unfortunately for you and your delusional blog posting friends YOU’RE WRONG

The Vitos will be fetching coffee and answering to Liam. Liam is running the campaign. Batya and the Vitos don’t count. He’s not letting the kids run the show like they did last time. He’s also staffing up with other Kassar favorites. Stay tuned.

Liam and Grimm..two convicts..literally..remember Liam was arrested for child abuse

Anonymous said...

Hey 4:56, these things you type are called "words" and they mean things.

Being arrested does not make someone a convict.

Accepting someone's endorsement and full support, and then endorsing and working for their opponent 8 months later does, however, make you a douchebag.

Liam is the next bklyn county chairman..both he and Ghorra are heads and tails better than Eaton

Anonymous said...

Liam is still a Conservative Party operative working as an "illegal" under Republican cover, and his loyalty remains to Mike Long and his crew. Jerry Kassar has always been and continues to be McCabe's control. Keeping the GOP under Ted Ghorra's nominal control is a better choice than switching to McCabe.
The only thing left to do is to move away to Staten Island like the Ole Sarge, Russell Gallo.

Gee Wiz, Golly, Gosh and Dad-gum! It's cloudy and rainy today, but the sky isn't falling any time soon. Here's something that isn't news to Republican insiders, Liam McCabe isn't going to be anything in the Republican Party for quite some time.
Except for one or two relatives and friends of his, almost every Brooklyn Republican operative hates Liam McCabe and would never let him near running the Brooklyn GOP. Besides, Liam would want to take back control of the BOE from Marty and Shamoun; and it looks like he had some interesting conversations about that along the way with some very interested people. And generally, Marty G and John Q don't like him at all, and even Jerry K says he doesn't like all the recent Liam talk.

Anonymous said...

The “ole sarge” Russ Gallo and that buffoon Berardelli are the reasons Craig Eaton lost most of his supporters in the Brooklyn GOP. No wonder they both moved out of Brooklyn.

Anonymous said...

929 is correct. As much as Eaton talks about people being loyal to him still, no one is...(including Cats) ..if Eaton had all this supposed support he or someone he supported would be running against Ghorra..no one is.. and Cats is with Ghorra...just see the John Cats email said a few weeks ago to Marty, Ghorra, Eaton , and many others where John said despite what anyone says (i.e. Eaton) he 100% supports Golden..it was a 100% smack down of Craig that was widely talked about and shared.

Anonymous said...

Ted is in a worse position than Craig. All of his resources that keep him propped up come from Jerry and the Conservatives the people who got him elected Chair are mostly Golden people. Ted initially told Saperstein to drop out of the race and endorse Liam. That’s what Jerry wanted and would have gotten until Marty Golden got on the phone with Ted Ghorra. Ted is in the awkward position of having to please just about everyone in Brooklyn in order to remain the chair.

Anonymous said...

9:54, you don't even pretend very well. A formal remark here, an isolated polite mention there, and your side over and over saying it means something is not "a 100% smack down of Craig that was widely talked about and shared."
Here's something that you can take to the bank, there is going to be a h-u-u-u-u-g-e kitchen knife shoved into Marty's back in 2018; and Johnny Cats, The Big Cat, The Cat Man, Big John and most of all Mister Catsimatidis to you and your ilk, his finger prints will not be on it, and he will have several iron-clad alibis, to boot.
And once the deed has been done and MR. C has been "told" about it, he'll say, "Oh, that's too bad."
Wait and see, it's coming very soon.
Then, for your side it's, "Turn out the lights, Melinda."

Cats is with Marty, who is mentoring Andrea..

Anonymous said...

It’s ironic that Jerry and Marty used to talk so much shit about Cats even took Malliotakis name off the door for her Brooklyn office now have to grovel for his support. They have their sycophants on here posting about one single “mentoring” tweet as if all is forgotten and Cats and Golden are now best friends. Cats discouraged his friends from donating to Gounardes in 2012 to help Marty, he also donated big amounts to the Conservative party. If anyone thinks that Cats has somehow forgotten how they repaid him when he ran for Mayor, he knows nothing about John.

Anonymous said...

209..then why is John publicly supporting Marty??????? That's all people see...all know Craig despises marty....so all see Craig has no juice with the Cat Man...it's new day and Craig is nowhere to be found

Anonymous said...

You can’t say Craig is nowhere to be found when he’s seen hanging out with Cats several times a month. Craig is over the whole Brooklyn feud, he’s enjoying watching Ghorra squirm trying to navigate Jerry and Marty camps. In 2013 Craig was a true friend to John, he helped honestly without taking a dime unlike some of the other con artists involved in his campaign. He earned John’s respect and friendship and I’m sure they’re both laughing hysterically at Marty and Jerry begging for forgiveness after everything they said about John Cats in the past.

4:20 yea the emails! It’s all part of Cats careful strategy to help Marty, he hangs out with Craig as a ruse and express his true loyalty to Marty by sending him emails.

TO THE FOLKS ABOVE WHO LOVE MARTY G. ---

--- I AM SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS.....

SAY WHAT ???

NOW HEAR THIS: THE SELF-ASSURED MARTY GOLDEN IS DEADER THAN A DOORNAIL [POST-MORTEM TO FOLLOW]

WOW SUH! WOW SUH !! WOW SUH !!! A MARTY GOLDEN CAMPAIGN RALLY IN MAY !!!!! WELL, CHOP HIS LEGS AND CALL HIM SHORTY.....


Marty G's "Friends" have done a mailing about "... MARTY'S CAMPAIGN RALLY!" It's on Wednesday, May 23rd at 7 PM. Yes, it is being held at the Bay Ridge Manor, 476 76th Street in beautiful downtown Bay Ridge.

Sometimes only a song will do --- and as Carol King might say:

"... Mellow as the month of May
Oh, darling, I can't stand it...

I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down, a'tumbling down
I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down, a'tumbling down....."

Hey, Marty, this rally is much too much of the wrong kind of medicine for what's ailing you right now. You'll need a new team F-A-S-T; this team has " L-O-S-E-R " written all over it..... "Just you wait and see..." (More Carol King another time).....

Anonymous said...

The open joke in Bay Ridge political circles is that since all know Craig hates Golden and he purports to be so close to Cats he would have cats endorse Gournados, or at the very lease not be so public in his support of Marty (mentoring his daughter, etc.) ..the Cats email smack down of Eaton to Golden, Ghorra, and Eaton himself , and others saying he whole heartedly supports Golden took away all Craig stories about him carrying influence with John ...and for anyone to claim Craig told John to support Marty knows that ridiculous and just an attempt to wipe the egg off Craigs face..if Craig really told John to support Golden, Eaton should publicly endorse Marty today!!!!

Anonymous said...

What’s common knowledge in all Brooklyn political circles is the joke that the Brooklyn GOP has become. Cats and Eaton are friends—get over it. We all know about the email and also the reason you don’t dare release the actual email. You won’t release it because it blows to shreds this nonsense about Cats and Golden having buried the hatchet. Back in Brooklyn we are the only county organization without an Office, the Bronx with their whole 10 or so Republicans left is able to keep an Office while Ted calls Dom Sarta’s Office basement Brooklyn GOP headquarters, that is the real joke.

All you guys are so pathetic. Why hasn’t Cats Publicly and prominently endorsed Golden? Most of you haven’t even seen the email it’s only the version you’ve been told by the guy who got you the jobs at BOE. Cats email was merely a clarification nothing else. If John was a big supporter of Golden everyone would know there would be no debate. But again the same people who said Cats was done and Lhota was going to be Mayor are now begging and groveling for Cats forgiveness. Whistle while you grovel.

Anonymous said...

Everyone does know Cats is a big supporter of Golden, that is precisely Eatons problem and why he looks silly..

Yes, the email was a clarification..the clarification was John said he 100 percent supports Golden despite what Eaton and others may be saying..
No one is groveling ...Cats has made it clear he is with Golden while be mentors Andrea

12:07 you are showing how clueless you are. Apparently no one even bothered to show you the email. You have no idea what the email said, you are basically writing what you wish the email said. Cats has not given any publicity to Golden, even though Golden has bent over backwards to make amends.
