New York Green Candidate Hawkins on 9/11 and Politics

Howie Hawkins, the Green Party of New York State candidate for Governor, said today that he was very disturbed by the efforts of the Republican Governor candidates to advance their sagging election prospects by crudely inflaming religious and ethnic tensions by attacking the proposed Muslim Center near the former World Trade Center.

Hawkins said:

Why do these Republicans hate our freedom? Freedom of religion is the first freedom protected in the First Amendment. It’s about freedom of thought, the foundation of freedom of speech, press, assembly, and petitioning the government for redress of grievances. Why do right-wingers like Lazio and Paladino hate our U.S. Constitution? They talk freedom and practice repression. They sound like Big Brother in George Orwell’s 1984: War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength.

“At a time when the Great Recession is still throwing New Yorkers out of their jobs and homes, when the state budget is bust because all the major party politicians refuse to make the rich pay their fair share of taxes, these guys are trying to win the election by dividing New Yorkers against each other by race, ethnicity, and religion. They are making the Muslim community center an issue to divert attention from their unpopular response to the economic crisis of cutting public spending, gutting our schools, hospitals, mass transit, highways, police, and other public goods and services, and throwing thousands of more teachers, transit workers, police, and other public workers into the unemployment rolls. I trust that New Yorkers will see through this ugly strategy,” said Hawkins.

Hawkins said he supported the proposed Muslim center. Hawkins noted that it would have an interfaith mission of service and mutual understanding, and was approved by the Community Board of Lower Manhattan, following public hearings, by a vote of 29 to 1, with 10 abstentions. The proposed center features space for inter-community cultural events and multi-faith prayer, community services such as gym facilities and cooking classes, and a memorial to those who died on September 11.

Hawkins said he is troubled by how both Republicans and Democrats have manipulated the murder of thousands of innocent individuals on September 11, 2001 to further their political agenda of armed invasion of the Middle East to seize oil supplies while curtailing civil liberties here in the United States.

“I wish the Democrats and Republicans were more interested in answering the myriad unanswered questions about 9/11, starting with who actually paid for the attacks, an issue the 9/11 Commission said was not important to resolve. The Commission pointed out that the Saudi Arabian ruling family had been financially backing the Al Qaida terrorists for years, something that the two major parties don’t seem too concerned about since they sell us oil. The Commission failed to investigate why the Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency wired money to the 9/11 lead hijackers right before the attacks. We received documentation this week that the ISI continues to actively support Taliban in who are fighting American soldiers and Marines,” said Hawkins, a former Marine.

“No one has been indicted for providing logistical support to those who murdered 3000 Americans on 9/11, and it seems no one in the government is interested in investigating who there were. Why aren’t Lazio and Paladino asking why our City and State governments have failed to rebuild at the WTC ten years after the attack? Instead they act as bigoted demagogues, sacrificing the fundamental freedom of religion for which the American revolution was fought at the spurious altar of scapegoating and social division,” remarked Hawkins.

    Green Party Wins Back Ballot Line in New York
    Posted by Henry Stewart on Wed, Nov 3, 2010 at 10:53 AM
    http://www.thelmagazine.com/TheMeasure/archives/2010/11/03/green-party-wins-back-ballot-line-in-new-york

    Howie Hawkins is not the governor elect of New York State, but his party has walked away from the election with the best they could have hoped for: with 84 percent of districts reporting, Green Party candidate Hawkins passed the 50,000 vote mark, which will give the Green Party a guaranteed line on state ballots during the next four years.

    It’s the first time the Green Party achieved such success since 1998, when the Al Lewis-Alice Green ticket took in 52,000 votes—and that’s back when there was still a Liberal Party! The Party was kicked off in 2002 (Nader backlash?), when Stanley Aronowitz took in about 42,000 votes; Malachy McCourt failed to win the line back in 2006, when he pulled in just slightly more.

    In fact, Hawkins did better than any other third party candidate, even though the coverage he received following that wacky debate was next to nil. If you Googled “Howie Hawkins” yesterday, The L’s pre-debate Q&A was the first result from a media organization. Even kooky favorite Jimmy McMillan, of the Rent is Too Damn High! Party, pulled in less than one percent of the vote.

    Media seem to treat third party candidacies as diverting side shows—unless, say, there are murmured rumors a “legitimate” candidate like Bloomberg might run for president—as when the fascination never ceased, during New York City’s last mayoral campaign, over whether the Naked Cowboy would run. During the same election, the Green Party tried to exploit media dismissal when they ran Reverend Billy, who’s both a copy-attracting persona and a man with a thorough commitment to real issues of justice. Still, the one time the Times covered the campaign, they attached the headline “Comic Pastor Runs for Mayor”. Yuk yuk!

    But Hawkins’ success gives the Green Party a platform off of which to build. “This is a building block for the future,” Eric Jones, co-chair of the NYS Green Party, said in a press release. “We are going to use this victory to elect Greens statewide, starting at the local level and moving on up to the state.” If this country, and state, is truly angry about corrupt incumbents, let them use their imaginations in the voting booths: let them vote for principled candidates of reform not beholden to the debauched coffers of the major parties.
