It started out as a few random comments on the nj.com forum, so noxious they disappeared as quickly as mosquitoes hitting a bug zapper.
One of them was titled ZIMMER = RACIST.
Then yesterday on MSV this post appeared:
Are you getting the picture? Let me break it down for you.
It's the unrolling of a new anti-Zimmer administration talking point.
That's how it's done, folks.
Paid political operatives seed the blogs and forums with their message, releasing it into the zeitgeist like spores through the air spreading fungus. The toxic 'message' floats around for a while, then in accordance with Goebbels' 'Big Lie', takes on a life of it's own via its ubiquity.
Are you familiar with Goebbels' 'Big Lie'?
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”So, what happens next?
After percolating in cyberspace for awhile the 'message' is taken for a test-drive.
That's where Lane Bajardi, Beth Mason's political operative and purple pillow carrier comes in.
At last night's City Council meeting, Bajardi released a 'racism' trial balloon so grotesque that the audience actually hissed. I will post the video clip when it's ready but to summarize, Bajardi obliquely accused CC minority members whose "names did not end in a vowel" of racism against (presumably) those whose names DO end in a vowel.
I didn't get it either.
But then, I don't spend every waking hour brewing in hatred so pure that it surely must twist one's mind like a Bavarian pretzel.
The roll-out of this depraved and amoral new talking point tells you everything you need to know about the characters of Beth Mason, Lane Bajardi and all who assist them in disseminating such vicious and divisive rhetoric.
And just think how ironic it is that this Mason political operation employs the Big Lie tactic, when she tried to RUIN me with the very accusation I'd compared her to a Nazi.
Think about it.
It's time to end this. Next May.
Vote Tom Greaney for 2nd Ward City Councilman.

For your viewing displeasure, thar he blows... Bajardi at the City Council. His disgraceful remarks start at the 0:49 second mark.
Please note how Mason's minion whines after being admonished by CC President Carol Marsh for his race-baiting: "...it's ok when your bloggers do it"... about the mean bloggers (presumably MSV, HJ, GA) as he himself is neck deep in the Hoboken411.com smear-factory mud; a ghostwriter for the Mason-tabloid, in fact.
