What’s with all the hiding, yimbys?
Open New York New York founder Sven Carlos Thypin currently cowers behind a locked account, along with his komrade, Democratic Socialists of America paid staffer Snickole Murray, and their peer, paranoid Philadelphia chaos-maker Taylor Kessinger.
And Open New York member Émilia Decaudin, another DSA payroll recipient, won’t have conversations about yimbyism in the open air (her “DMs are open😤🍼😫,” though).
Émilia uses Twitter to claim that Twitter, to her, is a “haze.”
Public scrutiny and any subsequent engagement remain difficult for the “pro-housing not pro tenant” zealots because their agenda is easier to propagate from behind closed doors and away from prying, overly educated and community-aligned eyes (aka, “haze😤🍼😫”).
Private yimbyism will only build a limited amount of public support, especially here in New York City, from within their tiny, cushy, quiet yimby safe spaces where no one can criticize any neoliberal ideas or ask any relevant questions or demand any transparency: yimbys continue to prove how much they abhor accountability in this accountability-happy town that is NYC.
And this sad yimby strategy doesn’t fool anyone, as proven by the pointed quote tweets to Émilia’s proposal (she limits replies because “free speech” drives her French derrière crazy🥺😭).
Upzone your need to hide, Émilia: you’re an elected official as well as an alleged “socialist😤🍼😫.”
Stop being so scared of actual public discourse: your private capitalism is showing. And we all see it.
