If De Blasio had taken a no-nonsense attitude towards the radical Left marching in the streets, it’s very unlikely that the Jewish Hassidic community would be up in arms right now.
He didn’t however, instead lauded the Leftist miscreants and here we are today. He knows he can strong-arm the Jews and not the radical Left, and I would say even the Muslim community as well. Jews, as with Christians do not issue fatwas, so they’re prime targets for heavy-handed actions by the Leftist totalitarian state.
Anti-Semitic Democrats Blame Orthodox Jews for the Coronavirus
Cuomo and De Blasio blame the Jews to distract from their failures and crimes.
“I have to say to the Orthodox community tomorrow, ‘If you’re not willing to live with these rules, then I’m going to close the synagogues.’” Governor Andrew Cuomo told religious Jews.
His basis for the decree was a photo of mourners who weren’t practicing social distancing at a funeral. But the photo of a crowd of Orthodox Jews on Cuomo’s slide was from 2006.
It was a very different message than Cuomo’s condemnation of bigotry when he had insisted, “There is zero evidence that people of Asian descent bear any additional responsibility for the transmission of the coronavirus.” The new message is, don’t blame the Asians, blame the Jews.
They did go to a funeral in 2006.
Cuomo was picking up where Mayor Bill de Blasio had left off in his infamous tweet targeting Orthodox Jews. “My message to the Jewish community, and all communities, is this simple: the time for warnings has passed,” the New York City leftist boss had raged.
