Orwellian revisionism is job #1 at Hoboken411

Although it’s not news to anyone, reader Verona submitted this prize of Orwellian revisionism from Hoboken411.  It’s a fascinating case where complete control over the public is far more important than permitting even a passing remark of disagreement.


What was the offense?  A commenter tried to slip one past the goalie saying, “Everything turns into an anti-Zimmer campaign.”  That comment was replaced with the following interjection in its place by Das Klaussen himself:

@Journey – The park was indeed “finished” under the Roberts administration – and all Zimmer has to do is maintain it (i.e., trim the bush).
Should other parks created under previous administrations also get abandoned?
For those that say that this isn’t a “park” – the plaque with Zimmer’s name on it says it IS a park. I never heard her requesting that her name get removed either…
In response to Journey who said:
So in 2008 Hoboken411 said, “We won’t see anything else on this (what I call useless for the most part) “feel good Hoboken prize””.
Now he is concerned that it is not finished. I think most people are glad no money is being put into this pit.

    Great catch, Journey! When I read the first paragraph of this article, I immediately thought that if Zimmer HAD cleaned up the area, 411 would be writing that the Mayor should be spending time on countless other things that “matter”. Everything turns into an anti-Zimmer campaign! And I didn’t vote for her, I just don’t understand how a majority of articles find a way to drag her through the mud….

Personally, you could put a volleyball court over Sybil’s cave and most people wouldn’t notice or care even if you left the sign up.  You would however have a bunch of very happy volleyball players.


This just shows the extent of isolation Hoboken411 and his ilk find themselves in Hoboken’s political climate today.  The good news: at least it’s not contagious.  It’s kinda sad but illustrative of a broken mind, nuff said.
