Hero to Zero Series, Part II
Here is another instance where the Juniper Park Civic Association applauds your accomplishments and touts your accomplishments until....you disagree with their leadership which causes them to attack and malign you.
Congressman Anthony Weiner has proven that he is a dynamic and intelligent public servant. Consequently, during the last mayoral campaign Congressman Weiner's numbers began to soar against Freddy Ferrer. This was due in part to the Congressman's energy but mostly because people began to hear what Weiner had to say. Even the Juniper Park Civic Association in their October 2002 issue of the Juniper Berry had great things to say about the young and bright politician from Queens.
*"(Weiner) an ascending force in New York Politics"
*"Weiner is a tireless worker, smart and committed to policy and a fighter for his district"
*"The New York Post named him one of the 'up and comers' of 2001"
*"(Weiner) list of leader in the 21st Century"
The above statements are glowing accolades from the JPCA and strong endorsements for higher political office. As we all know, all good things must come to an end. Especially when you disagree with the Almighty Bob Holden.
In the October 2005 Juniper Berry, Congressman Weiner goes from a "tireless worker" to "someone you would not want next to you in a fox hole"
In a negative article entitled "Introducing the "Real" Weiner", the Juniper Park Civic Association once again shows its true colors and fickle nature.
Congressman Weiner goes from "a fighter for his district", to "when the going gets tough, Anthony Weiner is gone"
In the attack piece, Mr. Holden has the audacity to ask the rhetorical question, "Are we being too political for a civic association?" We here at the Patriots should not dignify that question with an answer, but we will.
The Juniper Park Civic Association is no longer a civic association but a vile political machine that operates to effectuate the political aspirations of a few maniacal egomaniacs. They will stop at nothing and use any means necessary to realize their grandiose delusions of winning an elected position. The majority of people in Middle Village and Maspeth are decent, hardworking people and know a fake when they see one. Thankfully they are seeing a fake in the Juniper Park Civic Association.
If you are ever allowed to attend a Juniper Park Meeting, (you wont because they have closed the doors to outsiders and interlopers) you will notice the absence of political leaders from all levels of government. Everyone is beginning to realize that today you maybe the hero but rest assured, tomorrow the JPCA will soon label you a zero.
