Oh yeah; 5 days before the Nazi truck appeared, thousands of midnight flyers blanketed our city with my name and photo, attacking me with the same allegations that were to appear days later on the Nazi truck video.
The Nazi truck parked outside my daughter's school on the night of October 16, 2012 and drove around Hoboken, up and down Washington Street and parked in front of Carlos' Bakery on October 17, 2012. And Hoboken's Jewish community were outraged; Chabad Rabbi Moshe Schapiro told The Hoboken Reporter:
“I’ve seen pictures and I think it’s despicable. I’m appalled and shocked that anyone can use an image of such hatred and bigotry. I don’t know whose side, what side, if they’re repeating something, but how can one be so insensitive to Holocaust survivors who will walk by, or people who had grandparents who survived the camps, and have to witness such an image driving around the city?”
He added, “Whoever is responsible should immediately remove it and apologize. I am shocked this could happen in this day and age. In other countries it’s a crime to use that image. We have freedom of speech, but a million and a half Jewish babies were killed…this is not something that should be used for some political gain.”
Well, now we know who is (allegedly) responsible...
A startling interview posted on MSV last night has alleged who is responsible for the Nazi truck- James Barracato, longtime Beth Mason political operative whom she now calls her "business partner." Horsey interviewed Noel Torres, the owner/driver of the Nazi Truck. In part, he told MSV:
"I only met James. He hired me. I met up with him by the Lincoln Tunnel gas station... He didn't want no one to see him or this stuff... Matt Calicchio was with him. They were giggling about it; they were excited about it. I didn't know what I was getting into. It went pretty bad."Torres also told told MSV he was paid in cash; given "$2,000 for the first attack video, $1500 plus a $500 bonus as he described it "to keep this quiet.""
In other words, Beth Mason's 'bag-man' allegedly gave Torres 'hush money'.
So Barracato was "giggling"?
Is he giggling still?
Well folks, GA has broken it down for you below in 3 parts- by no means the entire story, nor all of the evidence available to tell the whole story; there is much more. But, for starters:
You get the picture?
As for Branco stepping forward to deliver this tale, GA believes there must be more to it than meets the eye.
So, will Beth Mason give that apology requested by her rabbi two years ago?
