Senator Avella: Worst Thing To Happen To Queens Since Donald Manes

TwotimintonyWake up voters! Tony is trying to pull the wool over our eyes yet again.

Remember when disgraced Borough President Donald Manes embezzled hundreds of thousands of dollars from Queens taxpayers then committed a gruesome suicide? Well we’re looking at round 2 when career politician Tony Avella picks up where he left off.

We already know Tony has been playing power broker with his dubious political maneuvers. We know his disrespect for colleagues has cost the district hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost funding, we know he pals around with the likes of radical white-hater Charles Barron, Asian-bashing racist Sonny Carson, and disgraced former Assemblyman Brian McLoughlin, and we know he’s connected to not one but two contaminated sights in Whitestone and College Point.

Barring the receipt of a gift basket filled with cash, what more evidence do you need? He’s waged war against young activists, isolated himself from his colleagues, and he’s been misspending time and taxpayer resources trying to save pigs and on other “pet” legislation that really doesn’t help anyone other than to further his own political agenda.

Don’t let the entire borough suffer the same neglect and political malfeasance Tony Avella has cast on northeast Queens.

‘Tony Avella Supports Anti-Asian Racist’ [letter to editor]


Anti-Asian Racists?

Old wounds never quite heal.

Below is a letter to the editor from a Korean-American activist which describes a long-standing sense of outrage and disapproval inside Asian-American communities and political circles regarding Tony Avella’s advocacy of anti-asian racist Sonny Carson.

[Email] While in the New York City Council, Tony Avella strongly supported renaming a street after racist Sonny Carson.

In 1990, Sonny Carson organized a boycott of Korean owned businesses in Flatbush Brooklyn. Sonny Carson proclaimed himself ”anti-white and anti-Asian.”

The anti Asian boycott, tried to shut down Korean and Chinese stores not only in Flatbush but also in Harlem, Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn and Jamaica, Queens.

Sonny Carson also stated on various occasions that in the future “there’ll be funerals, not boycotts.”

It is inexcusable that Tony Avella wanted to rename a street after Robert (Sonny) Carson, the convicted kidnapper and racial antagonist who lead the boycott against Asian American store owners. Sonny Carson and his supporters shouted threats and spit at Korean Americans. Sonny Carson handed out flyers telling people to ”boycott all Korean stores” and avoid shopping ”with people who do not look like us.”

Tony Avella supported anti-Asian racist Sonny Carson so Korean Americans should not support Tony Avella for Queens Borough President!

He is trying to fool us by pretending to care about Comfort Women.

And In Korean:

당신이 현 뉴욕주 상원의원 토니 아벨라 (Tony Avella) 에 대해 모르셨던 사실.

뉴욕시 시의원으로 활동하는 중, 현 뉴욕주 상원의원 토니 아벨라는 강력하게 인종 차별자인  써니 카슨  (Robert Sonny Carson) 의 이름을 딴 거리변경을 지원하게됩니다.

1990 년, 써니 카슨은  브루클린에 있는 Flatbush 지역에서 한국 인 이민자 들이 가지고 있는 상점에 대한 보이콧을 열렬히 펼쳤습니다.

이 소니 카슨이란 인물은 강한 반백인 성향과 반동양인 성향을 지닌 사람으로써 한국인 과 중국인들이 가지고 있는 상점에 대해 보이콧을 선포,

브루클린 Flatbush에뿐만 아니라 베드포드 스타이븐슨 (Bedford Stuyvesant) , 할렘, 브루클린과 자메이카 등 여러 지역에서  각종 방법을 동원해 한국어, 중국어 점포들을 폐업시키려고  노력한 사람입니다.  또한 써니 카슨은 각종 행사에 참여 , 이 한국인과 중국인 상점들에겐 앞으로는  “ 단순한 보이콧이 아니라, 장례식이 있을것” 이라며 위협하고 다녔습니다.

써니 카슨과 그의 지지자들은 한국인 이민자들에게 갖은 위협을 일삼으며 사람들에게 ‘한국 상점 보이콧’, ‘우리처럼 보이지 않는 사람들과 쇼핑을하지 마십시오.’ 라는 전단지를 나누어 주며 한국이민자들의 경제활동을 적극적으로 막았던 인물입니다.  토니 아벨라 주 상원의원은 이러한 한국인 상점에 대해 반인간적인 행동을 하고 유괴범 판정까지 받았던 써니 카슨이라는 인종차별자를 기리는 거리변경 법안을 거리낌없이 지지하였다는것에 전혀 변명의 여지가 없으며 이는 또 토니 아벨라 상원의원이 한국인을 대변할 인물이 않된다는 것을 입증하는 증거가됩니다 .

이제 이러한 사실을 당신이 아시는 한, 인종차별자를 적극 지지했던 이 토니 아벨라의원을 한국인이 많이 거주하는 퀸즈 지역의 퀸즈보로장으로 선출시키는 일은 없어야 할것입니다!
