Saw this posted on WTAG’s Jim Polito’s Facebook wall and it made me wanna puke:
Turtleboy could write a whole thing on this, but Polito pretty much covered all the bases on his Facebook rant:
14 innocent people are killed and 21 are injured in a savage attack on a Christmas party by two suspected radical Islamists who mowed them down with assault rifles and then planted a defective bomb with the intent of killing first responders. On Monday, the anniversary of the attack on Americans at Pearl Harbor, Worcester City Manager Edward Augustus, Mayor Joe Petty and the City Manager’s Community Coalition Against Bias and Hate, “…will make a statement against #Islamaphobia in response to recent events around the globe.”
IT’S QUITE TELLING THAT THE FIRST REACTION OF THE MAYOR AND MANGER IS NOT TO RECOGNIZE THE VICTIMS, LIKE THEY DID IN THIS JUNE’S CHARLESTON CHURCH SHOOTING.
This is an insult to the victims and their loved ones who are truly victims of hate. WHERE IS THEIR VIGIL? It’s further proof of the City Manager and Mayor’s devotion to political correctness over right and wrong. It also illustrates their priorities do not lie with improving the quality of life in the city. They are more concerned about promoting a leftist ideology than setting a fair property tax rate and improving the quality and safety of our schools.
No reasonable person blames innocent and peaceful Muslims for the actions of those with a radical fundamentalist interpretation and practice of Islam.
The notice below was released Friday afternoon at 4:44pm.
The worst part about this is that they’re doing it on Pearl Harbor Day. On a day in which we commemorate the thousands of lives lost at the hands of the military empire of Japan, our leaders are holding a rally against Islamophobia. Like, did they even realize what the date was when they scheduled this? Are they that oblivious to American history? How bout we have a rally against “Japanesophbia” instead. Those people had their homes and businesses taken from them when they were intended against their will. Muslim people in America are free to do what they please.
Jim Polito is 100% correct. On June 30, Ed Augustus and Joe Petty, along with the City Manager’s Community Coalition Against Bias and Hate, held a vigil outside of City Hall for the nine victims of the Charleston shooting. Joe Petty, who seemingly had no opinion on the confederate flag before this, used it as an opportunity to pretend like he gave a shit:
Literally, he NEVER had a problem with the flag before that. But yet, here is this symbol of the confederacy that has flown in front of the SC statehouse since the 60’s, and now that it’s the trendy cause of the week he suddenly cares about this relic of the past. Just Jumpin Joe being Joe Joe.
Honestly, I knew he wouldn’t have a vigil for the victims of this San Bernadino attack. Because 14 (mostly white) American citizens getting killed by radicalized Muslim terrorists doesn’t fit the bill. They’re not victims. Nine black people in a church in South Carolina are victims, but not 14 white people in California. They don’t count.
So like I said, I knew the victims wouldn’t be memorialized. But to instead have a meeting to denounce “Islamophobia around the globe” shows what an inflated sense of self importance they have. Newsflash – you are the leaders of a small city that is completely irrelevant on an international scale. It’s not your job to condemn Islamophobia worldwide, because the only people paying attention are people in Worcester. If Islamophobia were rampant in Worcester it would be one thing, but it’s not. This is literally just scoring points with the PC crowd by exploiting a tragedy. Pretty low, even for them.
Hey Fast Eddy and Jumpin Joe, how bout denouncing the murder of Cherise Hill? I guess the senseless murder of a mentally unstable, former Doherty High School madrigal singer, whose life spiraled out control and lead to her murder a few nights ago, isn’t worthy of a meeting from Petty, Augustus, “concerned community members,” or the City Manager’s Community Coalition Against Bias and Hate.
I guess when push comes to shove, black lives don’t really matter to these frauds. At least not black lives in Worcester. Because Joe Petty and Ed Augustus haven’t said a WORD about a black woman murdered on a busy public street while her killers are still out there. Not. A. Word.
To make matters even worse, the day after Cherise Hill was murdered, the City Council held a subcommittee meeting about Public Safety where they patted themselves on the back for a bunch of meaningless stats. For instance, no one got shot in October. They have a graph for that. So that’s good. Look at these ASSHATS like Phil Palmieri, Moe Bergman, and Sarai Rivera, BRAGGING about how safe Worcester is the day after Cherise Hill was murdered – a murder not ONE OF THEM has the dignity to recognize:
Hey Phil, that’s why your ass got 11th place and lost to Tina Zlody. Because you’re a fucking chump. You are a joke and the City Council is probably better off with a communist like Candy Carlson. That’s how terrible and useless you are.
And by the way, guess who serves on this “City Manager’s Community Coalition Against Bias and Hate.”
Yup. Joyce McNickles. This is a woman who claims that black lives matter while ignoring the black life that was taken from her whitewashed suburban life in Sutton. But in reality she saw 14 white people massacred and the first thing she thought was, “better condemn worldwide Islamophobia because the whole world is watching Worcester right now.”
Not surprising really. This is a woman who the Augustus and Petty allowed to read a five minute poem at the final DOJ discussion, entitled, “Dear White People.”
Her speech starts around the 42 minute mark, and the poem at 44:29:
Literally, all she talks about is race:
And as she admits, she talks about racism EVERY SINGLE DAY
I’m with Jim Polito on this one. I’m so sick and disgusted with these people. They can’t take five minutes out of their day to memorialize 14 innocent victims, or 1 innocent victim in WORCESTER, but they have all the time in the world to schedule press conferences about “worldwide Islamophobia.” This is what our leaders do while our schools are underfunded, our property taxes continue to be the highest in the region, and our downtown continues to look like shit run over twice.
