HERE WE GO AGAIN WITH THE PHRASE “QUEENS VALUES” – WHAT FUCKING VALUES IN THIS SHITHOLE BOROUGH ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT

In the article below it states:

In a show of solidarity, residents of Forest Hills and other areas will gather at MacDonald Park on Sunday, Feb. 26, to celebrate “Queens values” and the borough’s diversity in the face of growing divisiveness across the country.

Again, I keep seeing this phrase as much as I see “diverse & vibrant”. So exactly WHAT IS “Queens values”?

  1. Crooked, corrupt and do nothing elected officials who would sell their mothers for a buck, let alone their communities.
  2. A borough filled with tons and tons of homeless shelters (except in the Evil White Queen Katz’s hood).
  3. A SE Queens area that has poisonous waste transfer stations dumped in them (Royal Waste), which is always good for families, thug auto body shops that have turned areas like Merrick Blvd into the “New Willets Point” with leaking junked & unlicensed vehicles up on sidewalks, residential streets and blocking lanes of streets.
  4. Slews of illegal conversions in which not a damn thing is being done.
  5. Huge amounts of bad ghetto behavior in of course the SE Queens area
  6. Garbage and litter all over. And I mean ALL OVER and in LARGE QUANTITIES, plus every other quality of life issue not being addressed.

Residents will gather at MacDonald Park in Forest Hills for a unity rally on Feb. 26.

In a show of solidarity, residents of Forest Hills and other areas will gather at MacDonald Park on Sunday, Feb. 26, to celebrate “Queens values” and the borough’s diversity in the face of growing divisiveness across the country.

Ethan Felder, Community Board 6 member, came up with the idea for the Queens Stands Together Rally in response to the recent political climate, specifically the travel ban issued by President Donald Trump, restricting immigration from seven predominantly Muslim countries.

“The rally was my idea, with all that’s happening in politics, with the travel ban, the wall and the executive orders, in the most diverse place in the world here in Queens we needed a tolerance rally,” Felder said. “Being a lifelong Forest Hills resident and attending local public schools, I thought the values instilled in school needed to be stood up for.”

Felder has enlisted the help of Mazeda Uddin, Peter W. Beadle, Prameet Kumar, and Mark Laster to organize the rally, and have the support of a diverse group of community organizations including:

  • Arab-American Family Support Center;
  • Coalition of Race, Diversity, and Intersectionality;
  • Council on American-Islamic Relations;
  • Muslim Jewish Solidarity Committee;
  • Queens Connection;
  • Queens New Democrats;
  • South Asian Education & Training (SAFEST);
  • Townsend Harris Alumni Association;
  • Turning Point for Women; and
  • Women for Afghan Women.

“When I see my Muslim friends feeling fearful and subject to bias, it affects me,” Felder said. “When one group is targeted, it is a threat to us all. So I think a Queens rally needs a strong showing of public support. Not just by having the rally, but assembling a diverse group of coalitions to sponsor it.”

Felder has also invited several of the local elected officials to participate in the rally, including Borough President Melinda Katz, Public Advocate Letitia James, Congresswoman Grace Meng, Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz, and Assemblyman Andrew Hevesi. The lawmakers have yet to confirm their attendance at the rally, however.

According to the rally’s Facebook event page, the rally will be used as a show of unity to bring together people of different faiths and ethnicities to stand up against hatred and bigotry.

“Standing together united and not being divided, especially in the most diverse place in the world where a large numb of residents are foreign born, is extremely important,” Felder said. “It might be easy to turn on someone that doesn’t look like us, but our diversity is our greatest strength. We here in Queens are not immune to the intolerance and bigotry that has been on the rise. The time is right to really have this display of unity in the face of all that.”

The rally is scheduled to take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Feb. 26 at MacDonald Park, located on Queens Boulevard between Yellowstone Boulevard and 70th Road. For more information, visit the Facebook event page.
