No, Dan, I just do screenshots of yimby avatars and create content about how all of you, like you yourself, are young white tech guys.
But here, curiously, is your pal Casey Berkovitz holding his cameraphone on me instead of public commenter (and his fellow OpenNYboard member) Amelia Josephson during Manhattan Community Board 2’s infamous (“chaotic”) June 2021 meeting: I wonder if he had suspected that I was going to murder Josephson so maybe he had wanted to make sure he caught my vicious soon-to-happen crime on film.
I ended up, instead, calling Josephson a “shill,” because, you know, she’s the listed on the 990 form for a real estate development lobbying group so.
And my daring to call Josephson, a transplant from Alaska who haunts Landmark Preservation meetings for the sole purpose of disparaging architectural preservation and appreciation, a “paid shill” apparently *was* akin to physical violence, at least to OpenNY Executive Director, and highly paid shill himself, Will Thomas.
“She’s the nicest person in the world!!!😤🍼😫” Thomas whined to me, one month later, after CB2’s full board vote in July 2021 which almost unanimously voted against the rezoning of SoHo NoHo.
(And it very well may be that Amelia Josephson is the “nicest person in the world😤🍼😫” but she nonetheless still remains a real estate development shill.)
ONY’s Thomas was livid with me: “And stop retweeting us too!!!! Gawd!!!!😤🍼😫”
Li was recently nominated for the Ibo Balton award for “community planning” from the creepy Citizens Housing Planning Council (with its Jessica Katz infamy), for having brought “equitable” scams to SoHo NoHo. Since my tweets about Li’s dishonesty are currently hidden, here are screenshots of them from over a year ago which demonstrate Li’s cruel dismissiveness towards downtown elderly residents, her blatant favoritism of Open New Yorkmembers, none of whom live in the rezoned area, and her unabashed dishonesty.
People hate your lies, Sylvia Li, not your skin color.
But keep collecting your gratuitous, crony, clubby awards and pocketing our taxpayer funding as your six-figure salary: we will all remain watching you.
(Also: all these tweets of mine about Sylvia Li, as well as this very blog post itself, are still missing all that alleged racism which I supposedly express at all given moments: weird flex, huh?)
They do all look alike and dang, is that baby bottle emoji their kryptonite.
Quick aside: the guy in the large photo has described his inclusion in this ensemble as an “attack” by me. He thinks it’s an “attack” for me to have made note of how similar all these redheaded bearded bespectacled young white guys look. Wonder what he thinks of Ukraine, you know, like in comparison to his own horrifying experience of having surviving being “attacked.”
There is a reason why I use the baby bottle emoji, Chris Aho: thanks for demonstrating that😃😀😄
The center guy here called me “abusive“ in the comments for my post about Mark Mollineaux.
(cashboob sporadically downzones her Twitter account into private locked mode🥺😭)
Hayden tweeted about me yesterday but then quickly deleted what he had posted, too fast for me to grab a screenshot, just like he had immediately deleted all his tweets in the conversation he had been having with me on the morning of January 9, 2022, which has always seemed suspicious to me. It was 2:30am when the suspension occurred and this guy was instantly trying to scrub away any record which could be connected to him.
Deleting a tweet doesn’t delete the conversation, even one with a now suspended account.
And you’d think it would be yimby bragging rights to have interacted with such a reviled racist and homophobe as me right before my infamous and oft-reported account got suspended.
But instead, right after my accounts were locked, Hayden had deleted all his tweets with me.
Within five minutes.
He was right on top of it.
At 2:30 in the morning.
So when I saw him mentioning me in that now deleted tweet of his from yesterday, something about how he had wished I was “still here” to witness something he had wanted me to be aware of, my curiosity propelled me to email him.
Hayden had suggested that early morning back in January that he and I, as residents of Long Island City, get together over a cup of coffee to discuss our differences (always a good idea) so my email to him was to follow up on that suggestion.
He has yet to reply.
While I wait, here are screenshots from that final conversation, thanks to increased functionality which keeps sprouting up on my suspended account:
He had tweeted about me yesterday and now he’s ignoring my email.
It is offensive for you to scoff at your own accountability: you had resented that people were onto your literal gaslighting so you then go and cry to your followers for them to soothe you and to encourage your toddle-esque whining for things to go exactly the way you want them to.
Do you not understand what you look like? Especially to the renters who need for you to be a strong, reliable leader: they see you instead as a whiney, over-privileged little white girl from Rochester who is regularly promoted by The Real Deal and evidently cares more about herself than the vulnerable people for whom she alleges to speak.
(“I can’t believe what you say because I Cea what you do” ~ James Baldwin, sorta)
Like, why did you never connect with any of the renters in Lower Manhattan who are worried about displacement? Why don’t you speak to them and learn about all the varied types of NYC housing in which they reside? Why are you so disconnected from real people in real situations and potential real crises? Are you here to learn, Cea, or to pretend that you have all the answers and that no one should ever demand accountability from you?
You cry for yourself. Publicly. So you can then temper-tantrum for the narratives you want to have. You. You are about you and you alone.
You are not about broadening your own knowledge or being introspective or taking accountability. Or even just explaining yourself in a cogent, clear and understandable manner: you appear deliberately incapable of that.
I don’t believe Good Cause is any good because so many crappy peoplesupportit and cannot properly defend it, let alone properly define it. And such a bill will likely eliminate even more stabilized homes in this city, a yimby agenda you should not be supporting.
I’ve said all along that I suspect you do this all on purpose: it’s all an act and you play dumb to try to win people over (it doesn’t work: we see you) so that you can then push a destructive agenda. You then whine for people to leave you alone when you are called out for obvious agenda-pushing.
Like a typical Aaron Carr– and Ben Thypin-worshipping yimby, you shut down discourse instead of encouraging it and engaging with others: this is why no one trusts you.
You whine and beg for validation when you are justifiably criticized, chthonic to behold: why can’t you take any criticism? You are in the wrong city if you can’t take what you deserve.
If it’s too hot in the NYC kitchen for you, Scruncherella, then get out: downzone yourself and your topknot.
This blog post, about what a suspicious, untrustworthy and purposefully obtuse figure you are in the NYC housing landscape, is only 1600 words long, SleeYa.
These tweets are not jokes: they’re not funny; they’re not “spicy;” they’re not “based;” they’re not “bangers.”
These are gratuitous and dangerous posts, catering to the mostly male, mostly young (and generally enraged) yimby population, the way pizzagate fake news was used to rile the least intelligent Trump supporters.
These violent false narratives shouldn’t be condoned or encouraged.
So what shall you do about those tweets, Twitter? While you keep me silent?
And by “mean,” I mean cruel mean, a deep and full malicious mean, not just mean mean.
Last night, sniffy Mark Mollineaux, a Stanford University radio DJ and podcaster, perchance even a student at the institution, mocked a man who struggles to care for his sick mother after the loss of his father, and her husband, because Mollineaux hates homeownership (“it’s bad!!!!😤🍼😩”).
But it was my witnessing him, once again, attempt to humiliate low- and middle-income American families who navigate the complicated world of managing mortgages and thoughtful planning for intergenerational housing security which inspired this blog post. Because Mollineaux is so typical of spiteful, malevolent and odious yimby: lying and bullying for kicks.
Dusty, tired yimby propaganda falsely stipulates that it’s “wealth😤🍼😩” which these not-rich families are “hoarding😤🍼😩” when in fact they are merely investing in housing security. These hardworking families have spent decades of careful strategizing, budgeting, sacrificing and law-abidance to give comfort to their now adult offspring only to then be home-shamed by some snarky, lobster-bib-wearing brat obsessed with “You’ve Got Mail” and who writes poems about pickling “vagrants.”
The account @TKintheSFC was heartlessly reamed by sad, mean, angry, overly-privileged lobster-inhaler Mark Mollineaux: if you have any extra cash to spare during this time, please consider donating to @TKintheSFC‘s family and their situation, they are far from their goal and could really use the help. Your act of kindness will also serve as a gentle “screw thou” to Smallineaux and yimby in general: this is a family who deserves support and love, not mocking and snark.
I can still see my account and all its content, including these blocked users, in read-only mode despite this suspension; I can even downvote tweets, oddly enough, so I’ve been enthusiastically clicking on that sad orange arrow.
As well, Twitter regularly asks me to confirm my phone number.
And it has not gone unnoticed, either, that at just around that same time Sam Douche also changed his handle from @samdman95 to @sam_d_1995, still nonetheless thankfully keeping us all abreast of his birth year.
Why would these yimbys change their names or self-suspend their own social media accounts? Are they trying to make it more difficult to have their tweets searched?
Like, oh I dunno, like, say, this one?
Are the yimbys, like, embarrassed?
Because the yimby narrative, while wildly dishonest, remains nonetheless deliberate. Every move is intentional, even if it’s an incredibly foolish move.
Because these yimbys don’t change names or delete accounts unless they perceive some profitable justification for such actions. There is a reason for everything yimbys do and don’t do.
For instance, Spencer never said his last name during his numerous public testimonies: perchance he was afeared that his full appellation was akin to that of a minor Disney cartoon character’s, maybe like Prince Charming’s annoying upstairs neighbor, the easily sparked Spencer of Heckwolf.
The real life version of Spencer, also easily sparked, can still be found doing sit ups and complaining about the elderly on Tiktok: for the meantime and for whatever reasons, the HellPuppy hath downzoned himself off of the bird app.
It’s 2022. Your group Open New York is a nonprofit which, at this point, has executed numerous years of fundraising. Open New York has now hired three different roles, all at director-level salary. In short, Open New York is making money and it is spending money.
And, like, like it or not, Open New York as an “incorporated nonprofit😤🍼😫” is still legally obligated to publicly display both how you guys make that money, by revealing your donor names and the amount they have donated, and by publicly disclosing what all your employees earn, aka, how much out of your donations are paid to them.
Again: you’re legally obligated to publicly provide this information, Ben, especially when you receive those tasty tax breaks as a nonprofit.
Guess you kinda need a lobbyist, what with your reputation and all, Benzurlito.
And this leaked spreadsheet divulges your and Open New York’s true intentions to gain power and attract money, all while pretending to care about the homeless and low income populations whom you continue to exploit and disappoint. In this document there is no mention about tenants’ rights, lowering livability costs or the protection of vulnerable people: it is all about money, money, money and building political muscle.
You don’t care about people: you only care about yourselves, you think you’re better than other people and should thus rule them. This is why despite loathing community boards, Open New York is actively pushing its membership onto community board seats to thereby disable those boards. You incorrectly believe that it is your place to lead others.
Shout out to the no-longer-existing account of “Bob O’Shaughnessy” who had dm-ed me the Google docs link for these board potentials, because, unlike the legally required posting of Open New York salaries, this spreadsheet had been *public*😳(🤣): huge ups, also, to a Slack chat sighting (“😤🍼😫”)!
