Liberal Bench Graffiti
Who writes this liberal bench graffiti in Hoboken anyway?
In this particular instance – it’s some relatively new bench seating along the uptown riverfront walkway which connects to Weehawken.
The graffiti (written in what appears to be wide Sharpie marker) proclaimed a very strange assortment of words…
- First bench: “USA” (appeared to be blocked out using that banned circle), “Obama,” and then “Black,”
- Second bench: “Osamo,” “Osama,” “NYC,” and “Washington, D.C.”
This makes no sense to me. It’s either the byproduct of a severely indoctrinated and psychotropically medicated young 20-ish person, or a purely deranged individual (synonymous actually). Why people feel the need to treat the rest of their world as their “canvas” is beyond me.
What “satisfaction” does someone like this get? Those marks could likely be erased with some hard core sanding. But considering these are public places, it will cost property taxpayers money to rectify the damage.
Look in the mirror and ask yourself: Do you see society devolving faster than you imagined? What is your plan for the future?
