De Blasio’s Idiotic Reply On Why Shuls and Businesses Can’t Open

Mayor Bill de Blasio was asked by a Jewish reporter about double standards and gave a ludicrous answer; Assemblyman Simcha Eichenstein and Councilman Kalman Yeger said: "Calls for mass peaceful marching rendered the lockdown ludicrous." Full Story, Video

Its just beyond sick to watch that hypocrite. He sounds so out of touch with reality

June 2, 2020 3:54 pm

Someone should educate De Blasio about the thousands of years of persecution that Jews have faced.

Yup! That includes...

200+ years of the Jews being slaves in Egypt!!!! And also the slavery during the Holocaust — I dare say THAT was EVEN worse than slavery in the U.S.: Not that slavery in the U.S. was ever good — not one bit of course, r”l. But it was never the goal of U.S. slave owners to annihilate all slaves! However, during the Holocaust, total annihilation of the Jews was the goal, r”l.

yup :((

but also Haman, Amalek, the inquisition, Crusades, terrorist attacks. In every generation. But we are still the Chosen nation, and Hashem is constantly taking care of us. In this way we can understand them better, we know what it means to be persecuted. MOSHIACH NOW.

Even Californias Governor Gruesome Newsom started curbside weekend ago with double NYS population!

Just say black lives matter
June 2, 2020 4:20 pm

The kids should just chant Michael Floyd in the park and the police won’t kick them out

What would happen?
June 2, 2020 4:23 pm

“My message to the Black community, and all communities, is this simple: the time for warnings has passed. I have instructed the NYPD to proceed immediately to summons or even arrest those who gather in large groups. This is about stopping this disease and saving lives. Period.”

Anyone else find this disturbingly hilarious?

June 2, 2020 4:30 pm

He forgot that he made protesting illegal against the constitution when people were making protests to reopen the small business

where are OUR leaders?
June 2, 2020 4:34 pm

why the silence of the so-called leaders

Black lives matter!
June 2, 2020 4:36 pm

Why allow them to be exposed to corona while making sure other minorities do not get sick?

June 2, 2020 4:53 pm

It’s for reasons like this that it’s so important to vote!

an idiotic rasha

Conflict of Interest
June 2, 2020 5:10 pm

Its a conflict of interest for Deblasio to determine how to deal with the riots considering that his own kids are attending so he should step down and allow a neutral party to take over.

Some Facts...
June 2, 2020 5:13 pm

A national analysis done by a Harvard professional concludes that it is 18 times more likely for police officer to be shot by a black guy then a black guy be shot by a police officer!

Concludes – America is NOT racist! FACT!!

**UPDATE** 2nd June 2020
June 2, 2020 5:20 pm

Mayor Bill De Blasio just announced small businesses can open in NYCC provided that a new second entrance is created to the store through the window and all purchases must be 100% off due to infection through handling money.

De blasio
June 2, 2020 5:27 pm

The mayor is not an idiot. He is an ideologue. He is on the side of the rioters and looter not on our side.

You get what you vote for!
June 2, 2020 5:30 pm

And since we don’t vote, this is what happens.

June 2, 2020 6:13 pm

we need to vote for people who will help us like chaim deutsch

Jimmy Walker, mayor of NYC in 1930s, was forced to resign by the governor at the time. It is possible to be done. Not that i think it should be done. He may be a bad mayor but not a criminal and as for his corona policies i think the vast majority of NYers support them.

Donald Junior for Mayor
June 2, 2020 6:35 pm

The WHOLE frum world knows this man is incompetent.  Why cant the FRUM world unite; and all vote for a NORMAL Mayor? Its Astonishing only 795,679 voted for Deblasio, Yes that number is CORRECT. If we got every Frum person to the ballot, its MORE then that…. we can put in a competent person! DB wants this Mess! He HATES business! Maybe the WHOLE frum world should ask Don JR. to run and we all back him. He is not the best but he will win, because he will go the gutters and beat the next phony liberal Mayor…. Yes I wish… Read more »

There will be even more anti Semitic then they’ll know we did it? Or maybe I’m wrong?

Wow, what an ignoramus!
June 2, 2020 8:25 pm

To paraphrase DeBlasio:

“When you see a city, an entire city simultaneously grappling with an extraordinary crisis seeded in thousands of years of government tyranny. I’m sorry. The understandably aggrieved store owner or the devout religious person who wants to go back to services has every right to complain about the double standard.

“This is something that’s not about which side of the spectrum you’re on. It’s about a deep, deep economic crisis, we have never seen anything quite like what we’ve seen in the past couple of few months. This is a powerful, painful historical moment…”

Fight back with your vote
June 2, 2020 8:48 pm

de Blasio, which is not even his real name (he changed it) does not deserve to be Mayor. He is a loser. Vote him out.

anti db
June 2, 2020 9:32 pm

next time this happens, get all the kids to surround the cops,10 deep

Vote Silwa 2020
June 2, 2020 10:29 pm

This is what happens when you don’t vote, you have a communist idiot as your mayor

he cares so much about us... lol
June 2, 2020 11:44 pm

What is everyone getting so upset for? He simply cares about us so much, that he wants us to stay indoors as not to get infected! LOL!

Yes, Vote Sliwa 2020
June 2, 2020 11:47 pm

Curtis Sliwa has what it takes to be an excellent mayor for NYC.

The man clearly has an Agenda
June 3, 2020 12:07 am

IF he cared about the Frum community at all then he would have made the same speech for us, “but they have suffered religious persecution for thousands of years so we will allow prayer” thats all he had to say. But he is a brown shirt for the left, and exceptions must be made for the causes that he deems worthy and all others can be tossed to the side. Also , 400 years of slavery – so what? corona virus doesn’t care , it will spread no matter the injustice. so in short NY, what will you do with… Read more »

Who would take his place
June 3, 2020 12:54 am

Whoever takes his place could be worse. De Blasio did not capitulate to those who are against metzitzeh b’peh.

In this case, he is correct. You can’t compare cold blooded MURDER (following 400 years of oppression) to financial ruin. The protests need to continue (hopefully safely but even if not) until there’s at least minimal justice of all four officers charged and imprisoned. In other cases, he is wrong. He is wrong for singling out the Jewish community, encouraging disproportionate force, and not adequately standing up for us. We need to find a way to fight this and all attacks against us, to defend ourselves, but right now, with the black community crying out from such a fresh and… Read more »

Take your “400 years of oppression” and stick it you-know-where. As other posters have commented, we Jews have faced oppression and cold-blooded murder for five times as long, but you don’t see us rioting and looting and burning. The Irish have been oppressed by the English for twice as long as the blacks have, and they’ve finally learned to be civilized. It’s tiring to hear the ongoing nattering about black slavery and about how the United States alone is culpable, as if other races and ethnicities haven’t been enslaved throughout history, as though the blacks themselves didn’t keep slaves in… Read more »
