|Hey Brownstoners, burn your computer after reading so you don't get caught!|
Over the past 4 years, I used to always look forward to going to the Brownstone Republican Club. They had good guests (of which Russell and I have been in past) as well as lively debates.
I say "used to" because that Brownstone Republican Club is dead.
In recent weeks, the leadership of the Brownstone Republican Club have taken to oppressive tactics on behalf of their endorsed candidate for Mayor, Joe Lhota. In my own personal experience, I have had Facebook comments notifying members of events for John Catsimatidis deleted on their Facebook site.

Since when do you have to be "authorized" to send an email to someone?!? Especially when the club itself shares its own list when it sends out an email?!?
Well, to hell with that nonsense. It's time to start calling these bastards out.
All over Brooklyn, Republicans are being coerced, bullied, even their livelihoods threatened unless they vote for Joe Lhota by those who care only about the growth of their own fiefdom. Count the Brownstone Republican Club among them now. The club known as an "independent" voice has been silenced.
I've said this when we talked about Occupy Wall Street - I never thought that I would be saying it about my own party - THINK FOR YOURSELF.
