Did you get a hard copy of this week's Queens Tribune? This is unbelievable! The front page features the headline "Queens Council Race." Underneath the banner are photos of Kevin Kim on the left and Dan Halloran on the right with the following: "Dan Halloran - the local king of a Pre-Christian heathen religious group." What the F---??!!??!!??!!??! I have never witnessed such character assassination in my life!
I found this article inside the rag.
First there's a long article about Dan's beliefs which is, in my opinion, nobody's business. Then there is the editorial endorsement of Kim, Halloran's opponent. Then an article about change. I hope that Halloran can take Schenkler and the Tribune to task for such a contemptible and contentious attempt at affecting the political process. Does the Queens Machine have no shame? I thought you would want to see this."
Hmmm. If Halloran were anything other than white and he cut the heads off animals under the Cross Bay Bridge, he'd be featured in an article about the vibrant, diverse religious expression we have here in Queens. Hey check this out:
"In short, the fullest range of our incredibly diverse borough was on hand, slugging it out in our most basic civil right - the right to elect our own representation." - from the same issue of the Trib.
"For the most part, the ethnic and cultural diversity of the borough shined bright Tuesday night as the ever-changing face of the people of Queens was reflected in the voting for the City’s Democratic Primary." - yes, from another Trib article.
It's great when other people are different. When white folk are they must be scorned. Such a double standard from the party that pretends to welcome all.
P.S. Thanks to Mike Schenkler, Council District 19 is now likely to get Paul Vallone after all! The man who idolizes Bloomberg is following in his footsteps.
You can't make this shit up, folks.
