To see the video that this article is based on!
FJCC/COJO of Flatbush corruption exposed at their forum.
Since I'm writing this slightly less than 36 hours after the fact I'm sure your all wondering, how come we have not seen the video that appeared in our last story on the Jewish websites. Or the fact that no Jewish reporter reported even in print on the heated Bris Milah debate that happened in the forum or Quinn's pushing her "perverse morality" by talking about her "wife".
Well first I was told by a witness that there was a man going around to reporters after the event and begging them not report on the event and specifically Erick Salgado. One of the "reporters" that this man spoke to was Shimon Gifter, Gifter recently removed a video from his youtube page that on Shimon Weiser specifically because it was on this blog. I had multiple reports by people that Leon Goldenbeg (who donated 4,950$ to the lesbian Christine Quinn) was visibly upset by the fact that Erick Salgado was there. In fact someone high up in COJO even threatened to fire someone because Erick Salgado showed up "early" to the forum and got to say his opinions to the Jewish community. I've confirmed that it was Leon Goldenberg himself that "invited" Mr Salgado to show up after the event was supposed to be over (9:45) after the FJCC, and COJO rescinded their invitation. The "jester of good will" only came after many Orthodox Jews made phone calls and sent Emails to COJO and the FJCC demanding that they put in the only candidate standing up for morality and the Jewish community's religious freedom and therefore is the only candidate with real rabbaniems support.
Since you may be wondering "where that video came from" ?
The answer is this came from a private video (so this will not come out on a video search) that's address was given to a gay blog (Queerty) that attacks everyone but BDB, and the lesbian Quinn. The Queerty article was based on a Politicker article by Ross Barkan article that (?purposely?) misunderstood what Erick Salgado said and therefore the candidates response.
mayoral candidate forum sponsored by Flatbush Jewish Community
Coalition became a litmus test on which candidates would speak out for
the LGBT community in the face of a hostile audience — and just as
significantly, who would not.
Erick Salgado, a minister who is a minor (to be charitable) candidate, started the chain of events during long-winded remarks in which he reminded the audience, which had significant representation from the Orthodox Jewish community that he believed that they were “persecuted.” As an aside, he threw in a remark about the other candidates. “They are marching here every year in the New York gay pride parade, they’re marching over here, trying to band together,” Salgado said. Needless to say, Salgado got a big hand for his comments
Two other candidates followed Salgado and said nothing: Bill Thompson, the former city comptroller, and Anthony Weiner, the former Congressman and captain of his own crotch rocket. It took Bill de Blasio, the city’s Public Advocate, to call Salgado out;
“First of all, I’m not sure exactly — Erick Salgado’s, your point before — I’m not sure exactly what you’re suggesting,” Mr. de Blasio said. “But I just want to say, I think as mayor of New York City it would be my job to protect the rights and needs of the Orthodox community and protect the rights and needs of the LGBT community.”
This earned de Blasio boos from the audience and at least one cry of “shame.” To his credit, de Blasio kept at it, even though this was not the audience for his remarks. “This is a place for everyone and the government’s job is to protect everyone and their needs,” he said.
Christine Quinn (pictured, above), who stands a good chance of becoming the city’s first openly lesbian mayor, weighed in as well, and forcefully. “You have to be a city where everyone gets to be who they are without ‘shame’ being screamed at them at an auditorium,” Ms. Quinn said, her voice rising. “Without somebody walking up to them on the street and attacking them, without somebody burning a mezuzah, without somebody, quite frankly, just two weeks ago walking up to a man in my district in Greenwich Village and shooting him in the face and killing him because he was gay.”
So now we know who has the cojones to speak up for us. And his photos aside, it doesn’t look like Weiner, or like Thompson.
Watch the whole thing yourself.
