They want to build a school on Hardy Park and the neighborhood wants to keep the park. Idk what QAnoners have to do with it tho?

No one has any plan build a school “on” Hardy Park. The proposal is to build a school beside the park that would keep all playing surfaces and facilities intact (and enhance many of them). Many people in the neighborhood have ES-age children and want the neighborhood public school that all other DC neighborhoods have. However, a handful of retirees - who have opposed proposals for a public school in the neighborhood even when it would have occupied an existing building - are peddling scary falsehoods to make the proposal out to be something it is not.

the school is mostly for the rest of the city. the neighborhood doesn't have enough density to support a school. And now that the council has 'protected' stoddert-zoned kids from going there, at least 50% of the enrollment will be from out of boundary.

now why doesn't the neighborhood have enough density to support a walkable school? NIMBYism from the same retirees who are don't want a school.

issue: palisades are NIMBY haven. we should just jack up taxes on all of them.

Wasn't there a school there that was torn down before they made it a park bc it was not being used and now that schools are overcrowded they are building it again?

Nah, they gave to building away to a private school in a sweetheart deal due to standard issue corruption,

It took me a second but I guess it’s the “Q:” on the sign that prompted that. But maybe it’s just a Q as in Q&A.

ETA: I was wrong, looks like it’s very much a Q Anon thing.

No it’s the WWG1WGA that’s the QAnon fckery. “Where we go one we go all”
