            For Buffalo Massacre        by Travis Gettys           111th Street Islands in Corona Heights

            Thought that our readers should have an opportunity to
            read this statement made by a conservative: Charles Joseph
            Scarborough an American television host, attorney, political
            commentator, a former politician who served in the United
            States House of Representatives from 1995 to 2001 as a
            Republican for Florida’s 1st district who now is the co-host
            of Morning Joe on MSNBC with his wife Mika Brzezinski.

                 MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough blamed a certain cable news
            network for a white supremacist who gunned down 10 Black
            shoppers at a Buffalo grocery store.
                 The shooter posted a lengthy manifesto online before driv-
            ing more than two hours to Tops Friendly Markets, which he
            targeted because it was located in a predominately Black neigh-
            borhood, and the “Morning Joe” host said his hateful screed
            matched racist theories promoted by conservative broadcasters.
                 “Fear locks our minds on the past, and it makes us anxious
            about future,” Scarborough said. “Fear allows us to hate people
            we don’t know, and it even makes us forget the best in our-
            selves. Once again, fear is a tool being used by media moguls
            and tyrants to target the weakest and most emotionally fragile
            among us. Fear feeds on the dispossessed minds mired in lost
            causes like this.”
                 “Like Faulkner’s Quintin, whose very body was an empty   Councilmember Francisco Moya was able to have all the Globes that were scheduled to be
            hall echoing with names, he wrote, ‘It was a barracks filled   removed from the Hall of Science Parking Lot relocated and placed on the 111th Street Islands
            with stubborn, backwards-looking ghosts,’” Scarborough   that are across from Flushing Meadow Corona Park in Corona Heights. See story on page 2.
