A fresh report from one of my deep mole BSIs inside Golden's tent tells us that >>> organized disinformation will be a major part of the Golden operation going forward in 2018
I have CONFIRMED that Marty Golden and/or many on his staff think that I am partially responsible for some or all of the anti-Marty sentiment in Bay Ridge.
Even though Golden and his sycophants are clearly worried about Democrat Andrew Gounardes, some appear to be easily distracted by flashy things and always try to strike (back) quickly. Like this: anytime someone attacks Marty on this blog, whether it's me in one of my featured posts or an anonymous commenter, some among Golden's staff and campaign crowd have been tasked to make routine counter-attacks by going after some designated Democrats or independents.
Lately more than anyone else, that has been Justin Brannan and Bob Capano, no doubt because of their open support of the Democrat Andrew Gounardes; who is also running on the Reform Party line. But occasionally it has been directed at me, as well. These counter-attacks have already appeared both here on this blog and on other social media sites and we should expect more of the same as we get closer to election day.
A RUSSIAN-STYLE "FAKE NEWS" GRASSROOTS OPERATIONNow, that Marty is in campaign mode, his handlers have put together a cadre of his supporters posting fake stuff on various different forums online saying things like "this neighborhood is going to hell", etc. --- not realizing that many, many people blame State Senator Golden and his contributors in the real estate business for that.
Just yesterday, on local Bay Ridge parents' Facebook pages, a "woman" posted a fake photo of hypodermic syringes around "the neighborhood...". That particular picture actually thad been taken in London several years ago, however, the woman said it was taken at the JJ Carty Park on Fort Hamilton Parkway. After several people called her out for it, so she deleted the posted phony photograph in one quick hurry. There are many more fake accounts of neighborhood disarray out there on social media --- many of which are controlled by and came from various friends of State Senator Martin J. Golden.
I can't say that all of this is a 100% coordinated effort to undermine all organized opposition to Marty Golden. However, my source told me that some of Marty Golden's campaign consultants even promised him that they can make lots of people come out vote for Republicans in November by making them think local crime is on the rise, and that many other unsavory prospects await if the Democrats take over control of the New York State Senate.
