The Big Lie
It’s one thing for opponents of the LG building to voice their concerns about development along the Palisades, which btw is already protected from development, but it’s another story when they resort to propaganda pieces that are blatantly misleading.
When such tactics are employed it is usually a dead giveaway that the protesters arguments are floundering on their merits. In this instance that is exactly what is happening.
We see this happen all the time in politics, where they create their own set of “facts”…truth and honesty doesn’t matter.
When the line is blurred between truth and lies nothing is believable
This is a great case in point
The photo depicted above was found on a site that protesters of the LG building height paint as their reality. But their reality is nothing more than a grotesque twist on the truth.
Photoshopped photos distort reality
Plopping down 20+ skyscrapers in a small area along the Palisades that is impossible to develop and where no persons or no company wants to be en masse is pure propaganda. The motives for doing this have to be questioned.
Parks and nature centers can’t be developed nor can any development take place within the Palisades Interstate Park. This holds up to a fact check.
This photo is their lie
The protesters which are a well organized group backed by some incredibly well connected donors want you to believe the lie: that this single LG building will suddenly cause all of these other buildings to be built.
They cannot offer up one single fact to back up their vision of future over-development along the Palisades.
- There are no applications for such projects
- There are no talks in progress amongst towns or developers contemplating such insane ideas
- The demographics and desire to make these projects feasible do not exist…thus making this an impossible scenario.
Protesters have conjured up a lame scenario to mislead the public into believing a lie
- This amount of construction would make Manhattan jealous!
- Tens of millions of square feet of residential and commercial skyscrapers that will never happen!
People resort to propaganda when their arguments can’t stand up to the facts.
This is their big lie
