Ridgewood’s “If you don’t like it Move” types Go Silent on Garage Protest

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, yesterday in Ridgewood at the official groundbreaking ceremony of the Hudson Street Parking garage . the event was greeted with a protester .

Which begs the questions where are all the critics of residents Steven Kim and Saurabh Dani , all the “if you don’t like it move” and how dare you question the great and powerful Ridgewood Public Library or Ridgewood Board of Education ?

Where are the big mouths? Where are the know-it-alls? And lets not forget all the “you should pay higher taxes, so I can move out of here” types?

Once again emphasizing the , it is OK to bully certain people for certain ideas but not others .

And of course if you in the in crowd , you have carte blanche even if you come off as an ignorant bigot?
