Professional protesters

Randy Levine said that the audience several weeks ago at the town hall meeting (where only eight community residents were allowed to speak, all in opposition to the proposed new stadium in the parks) contained "professional protesters". The Highbridge Horizon quoted two people who absolutely refuted the charge. Why? Because it was a lie.

What about tonight? Busloads of construction goons crowded the speaker's list, and crowded out community residents, hundreds of whom had to brave the subfreezing temperatures for more than an hour for an opportunity to enter the meeting, well more than an hour after the meeting started.

One woman, who arrived 45 minutes before the meeting began, and was the first to sign up to speak, was never called and never got a chance to voice her opinion.

That smell? Democracy, burning.

Funny: we posted this a couple hours after Carrion's "public hearing". When we awake, we find the Post quoting Randy Levine yet again about these "professional protesters". The ONLY professional protesters at the meeting Monday night were bused in by the YANKEES. Don't believe the hype!

Ironic, isn't it? Randy Levine, the expert on "professional protesters".Of course, he's the one shuttling them around!
