… But wait! YES! OF COURSE the Gaffer is in style in 2016! All the way, baby!
He is super cool! Super bad! Super in control! Just look at the big fake potted plants in his Route 9, mostly empty, law office!
One week ago I was sitting in Gaffney’s sterile law digs and he told me this:
Rosalie, I WON’T SUE YOU FOR $1 MILLION DOLLARS IF YOU NEVER EVER WRITE ABOUT CITY COUNCILOR MICHAEL GAFFNEY in your paper – or on your website – again. Ever.
And…IF YOU SUSPEND InCity Times WRITER GORDON DAVIS FOR 1 YEAR
Ha! What was this deluded dunghead snorting?!
I basically told Worcester City Councilor Michael Gaffney to go fuck himself and stormed out of his ugly law office.
Is this pretend-man not the most deluded, arrogant asshole? Especially in light of what was written about him in the daily, by a local columnist who reminded the entire city that Gaffney is racist…is a demagogue who’ll jump on an issue like a nymphomaniac on a whore’s bony butt?
City Councilor MICHAEL GAFFNEY, a scion of the mighty town of Webster …
City Councilor Mike Gaffney, a guy sporting five different shades of bleached blonde hair and riding any Worcester issue that he feels will get him votes and a chance to grandstand – never illuminate an issue, make bright …
Gaffney, a weird, dark guy – a guy who bizarrely speaks about himself in the third person as in “City Councilor Michael Gaffney” this and “Councilor Gaffney” that seems to be in fashion …
Even though he seems a bit “off” …
It’s his time!
A la whack-doodly presidential candidate Donald Trump!
A la hate-spewers Fox News!
A la Ann Coulter!
A la the Tea Party clowns!
A la the Freedom of the Press-haters!
Like those vitriolic losers, Worcester City Councilor Mike Gaffney has made himself the crooked vessel to hold lots of Worcesterites’ crooked fears. Their fears about: immigrants, people of color, poor people, the Black Lives Matter civil rights movement, a Worcester that is a majority-minority city once you cross Park Ave and head in the direction of my neighborhood, a Worcester where minorities – shut out of city jobs/power-hubs for so long – are looking for a significant piece of the Worcester pie. A Worcester where FINALLY people are coming out to say – sometimes shout – in public how it really feels to be black or brown or poor in America, in Worcester …
Gaffney and his deniers do not want to hear the truth that is bubbling up here, in Worcester …
So it really should have come as no surprise to anyone that Gaffney would seek to destroy me and InCity Times. We’ve been on the right side – his wrong side – for almost 15 years! We’ve been speaking truth to power since day 1. Gaffney destroyed the Mosaic complex, its director Brenda Jenkins, the building in which it was housed, its TRUE history – one of the few WOO African American social service agencies… And now he wants to destroy one of the few TRUE WOO alternative newspapers.
Well, Gaffer, Gordon Davis ain’t going away and you’ve already been called a racist by a columnist at the city’s biggest paper. Of course, you won’t sue them for a million bucks cuz you’re a coward and a kiss-ass. But you’ll go after InCity Times.
Give it your best shot, Donald. I mean Michael!
