Country Club Racism
Before my buzz completely abates, there’s something important I want to get off my chest. Courtesy of Ed Cone, the Hobbs Marketplace idea stinks. With so much retail space standing empty in Greensboro, the idea of building more, especially at the corner of Hobbs and Friendly, is obscene.
However, we only need look to the human filth who is Dr. Sue Polinsky, to see the impetus for such idiocy:
I won’t miss the GG Starbucks but it’s a shame for that never-met-its-potential little shopping center with the horrid concrete monster across the street.
Here’s one of my several replies:
Th[e] “horrid concrete monster” across the street stays full with thriving businesses and terraced walkways providing access. The be hip or die crowd are welcome to shop at [cookie] cutter monstrosities like the Shoppes at Friendly.
It is no accident that Polinsky lives nearby to the proposed shopping center. I, OTOH, am married to a successful business owner on State Street, one block over from Golden Gate Shopping Center.
It just so happens that Polinsky’s brand of commercial villainy could be accomplished from any location, while the rest of us depend on a healthy retail environment. It is also no secret that I have always despised Polinsky and her kind – interlopers with no ties to this city and the struggles we’ve endured.
In the coming weeks we may come to find that human filth like Polinsky, who inhabit the Country Clubs and consort with our elected officials, believe they have the upper hand on what happens in Greensboro. However, as with the landfill and the gang of four who had similar ambitions, the citizens are no more disposed to countenance a new shopping center when so many lie unused.
If Charlotte developers wish to rezone and bulldoze historic neighborhoods in our city, they will need more than the influence of the human filth which reside in our Country Clubs; they will require the consent of the citizenry.
Sue Polinsky has never opened her mouth when it did not end in detriment to this community. For her service, I thank her. We are no longer ignorant of her opinion and that of the human filth who are her friends and root like hogs among the detritus of our hopes and ambitions.
Greensboro may not have any of the .01% among her citizens to hold accountable for the situation in which we find ourselves. However, the human filth at the Country Clubs will do nicely as surrogates for the focus of our great disappointment. They would do well to walk softly and take great care, lest the least of us lose patience with their continuing enslavement. Indeed, the fortunate only exist with the forbearance of the rest of us.
Noblesse oblige is not a form of conciliation, but one of survival.
1-15-12 10:45: I have received an email from JW, questioning my use of “evil Jewess” when referring to The Evil Dr. Polinsky. I responded in no uncertain terms that I am prepared to portray the privileged Jews in our community as being secretly racist as they sit in their country clubs and support new shopping centers near their homes while those such as Golden Gate are allowed to languish. More to the point, I am not afraid of being tarred as a racist in my vigilant pursuit of the intolerant. They have a moral responsibility to make this city better for all the citizens.
In the fight to save Golden Gate, we have a secret weapon: St. Pius X School. I understand they are very actively trying to attract Trader Joe’s. It is important to recognize that many influential people are working to save this shopping center and the community which it anchors.
