Jerry Kassar has done it again --- His newspaper column “Common Sense” has/is the proof --- of a concerted effort to discredit a Bay Ridge citizen’s group and limit its First Amendment rights



The entire column by Kassar last week is evidence that the entire Golden staff was involved in a media war with “Fight Back Bay Ridge” after waging and then losing what the Golden crowd themselves described as a political battle for the streets of Bay Ridge  ---  After that epic fail,  Golden’s top staffers pivoted to a social and other electronic media campaign, along with Kassar’s column in some local newspapers to make outlandish claims and cry foul


Kassar’s column tracked social media messages previously posted by the likes of John Quaglione and John Seravalli, and on the record comments by Michael Tobman and Arlene Rutuelo  ---  All of which shows that the Golden Staff meltdown over the Third Avenue Strolls fiascos was not something by John and John going rogue,  but rather a coordinated attack including a consultant like Tobman and Golden’s long-time Chief of Staff Kassar
 


Read it all for yourself in Jerry Kassar’s “Common Sense” column,  “Fighting Back” in the August 17-23,  2018 edition of the Home Reporter, and presumably other Brooklyn Reporter publications  (I’ll get you the online cite/site when I track it down).

The Strolls are community events not political functions. Nothing unusual about Goldens staff using these events to meet constituents.

It's an election year. All community events are political events.

Golden and company lose again and will lose yet again in November and the lovely John Q wife will be looking for an employable new husband

Citizens group my ass. These are Justin Brannans minions. They’ve been harassing residents and trying to bully them for years. Even their fellow Antifa aspirants Radio Free Bay Ridge distanced themselves. This is the same group that brought in the socialists to have a counter demonstration in support of the crack motel being planned on fifth avenue. They’ve finally been exposed.

RESPONSE: THE "JUST LISTEN TO YOURSELVES" EDITION

TO: "ANONYMOUS SAID... AT 12:48 AM" & "... AT 5:33 AM"

YOU DON'T EVEN SEE YOUR OWN ARBITRARY DISTINCTIONS LIKE "NOT POLITICAL... [BUT] NOT UNUSUAL FOR GOLDEN'S STAFF USING THESE EVENTS TO MEET CONSTITUENTS"; OR THAT YOU ARE PLAYING RIGHT INTO FBBR'S HANDS BY MAKING IT A POLITICAL FIGHT FOR THE STREETS AND AVENUES OF BAY RIDGE

"CITIZEN'S GROUP MY ASS..." --- ARE YOU QUESTIONING WHETHER THEY ARE "CITIZENS" OR WHETHER THEY ARE A "GROUP"; OR THAT "THEY'VE FINALLY BEEN EXPOSED" --- BUT ISN'T EXPOSURE EXACTLY WHAT A CITIZENS GROUP LIKE FBBR WANTED IN THE FIRST PLACE ???


Golden and his staff have dug themselves into a hole over this speed cameras near schools issue; and then they've dug down even deeper by making it into a political war on the streets against a citizens group's complaining about Golden's negative position(s) on the school zone speed cameras.

They seem determined to try to prove that they can dig their way out of the hole no matter how deep they make it.

Is Golden 2018 using the Hynes 2013 playbook, just because Kassar got it for him on the cheap.

I can't hardly wait for that bus with the back porch on it, all done up for Marty Golden. When does Artie Aidala get named Golden's campaign chairman?

Cute post Gale but FBBR tried to portray themselves as a benevolent non partisan group. They almost got away with it too. They’re thugs. You like them because Brannan likes them and they hate Golden but it doesn’t change the fact that they’re Antifa wannabes.

MINI-BACKFILL: THE "NOT QUITE THE BEST CITATION" EDITION

HERE ARE SOME PLACES TO SEE MR. KASSAR'S COLUMN --- BUT YOU WILL HAVE TO SQUINT REAL HARD.....


All these folks must be very impressed that this Kassar column is a good thing (See photo-saved page of Jerry Kassar's "Common Sense" Column, "Fighting Back" [Brooklyn Conservative @BKConservatives . Aug 20...; also Retweeted at https://twitter.com/gerardkas, and at https://twitter.com/southbrooklynr?lang=en]).

It's also like a genealogical tree of those connected to Kassar's rant of fake news bits about FBBR. However, don't forget, the earliest exhibits of these fake news items came from Kassar's day job underlings on Marty Golden's staff, John Quaglione and John Seravalli.

FBBR is a left wing fringe group that started as advocates to abolish ICE. Kassar is a conservative.

At least some people want to keep Bay Ridge Great.

Gale while you are so enamored with Brannan the bs artist keep in mind that these punks from FBBR targeted individuals long before tussling with Golden, they are Antifa wannabes trying to bully people who disagree with them.

If FBBR is Antifa, Golden's goons are Birchers.

FBBR are just a bunch of left wing nuts manipulated by Justin which eventuallt discard and embarrass faster than a Chris McCreight Assembly Campaign.

When Marty ran over and killed the old lady I remember Hynes conducted the investigation. What was the outcome?

Anonymous said...

The last time Kassar skipped a meal, Joe Namath was still playing for the Jets

6:58 after Hynes found Marty was justified in killing lady the strangest thing happened. The following year Hynes had his democrat campaign event at Bay Ridge Manor and no record of payment on Hynes campaign disclosure.

Not bad Marty. A few bottles of flat ginger ale and Hynes buries everything.

What? 'I am shocked- shocked- to find that there were campaign financing irregularities going on in some catering hall in Bay Ridge!'

'Oh, please.... It was a little game they played. Somebody ran up the DA's bill, then somebody else tore up the DA's bill. It was very convenient.'

Anonymous said...

847, that particular Hynes-Golden connection is a man bites dog story.

That Mary Golden might have allowed somebody else to hold a free political event at the BRM would surely stand out, and it begs the question, 'Why?'. When it comes to political events, Marty usually wants to make money or launder it at the Bay Ridge Manor, not give it away.

Your idea about Hynes' investigation & exoneration of Golden's fatal MVA as the quid pro quo is an interesting theory. Did anybody do any real reporting about it at the time? If not, this would still be a worth while news story in an election year for Marty.

Was the Hynes event at Golden's Bay Ridge Manor ever listed as an 'in kind' donation as opposed to an expenditure?

Pedophiles often use balloons to lure children.

Now, Marty Golden's trademark gold balloons are proving to be a NYC area environmental hazard, washing up on the Jersey shorefront.

Golden balloons so wrong in so many ways.

Very odd that Marty has not had a competitive race since he beat Gentile in 2002. 16 years without a real race.

very odd that Marty Golden's spokesman John Quaglione is retweeting fake news from Jessica Proud about a far away state senate race between Republican Bill Larkin and Democrat Jim Skoufis. It's some nonsense thought up by Jessica to make anybody who says anything about Larkin off-limits because Larkin is a 'decorated veteran'.

more odd is that there isn't any quote, description or link to what Skoufis is supposed to have done or said. That seems OK with Quags, because lying to protect incumbent Republican state senators is part of the Republican senate campaign playbook this year.

and it would be most odd if John Quaglione didn't agree that anything Republican Dan Donovan might have to say about decorated veteran and Democrat Max Rose should be looked upon as equally evil.

Senator Jesse Hamilton issued a statement regarding the shootings. He said

I'm convinced he is tired.

Ulrich is an irrelevant loser. He is in a district more Republican than Golden’s. Had to spend enormous money to beat a no name. If he ran in Bay Ride he would lose to anybody.

Today Quags Retweeted about State Senator Fred Akshar being at a 'Little Italy' event in Endicott with Marc Molinaro. That's further away than Bill Larkin's district. What's with all the state senate reports from around the state.
Either the Republicans are worried that they'll lose the state senate or Marty Golden's spokesperson John Quaglione is. If the GOP loses its majority status in the state senate, Marty loses about half hs staff - BOOM!
Maybe, Quags needs to be worried.

Kassar has been counting the days until Mike Long retires for the past decade. The Lebanese are nothing if not patient. I did see Kassar stick a mirror under Long's nose once though so I think he may be getting anxious,

Each time I look at Martys campaign its the same hangers on from Hynes losing races in 2013. Except for a few dead people its the same crew that couldnt carry Bay Ridge for Hynes against Ken Thompson from Bed Stuy.

Anonymous said...

11:20 not the same people at all. Maybe they support Marty but that crew was a special kind of clueless.

9:24, Marty's current batch of supporters is also pretty clueless, lame too.
