Let us remember, it is our community “leaders” who keep telling us to vote for these democrats. We need to vote for a different party. But before that, we neean election to elect new vaad for our community, who won’t pander to the liberal politicians in exchange for phot ops.

No scapegoats please

No one supported the mayor more than Williamsburg.
Please go vote in the elections and make a difference.

That’s exactly the point

When a community supports the Democrats reflexively, because of “benefits” or whatever, they thereby show that they’re willing to be stepped on, and will just take it and continue voting for them. Let them have to work for our votes with actual actions, not just nice words and photo ops.

Every word you say is 100% correct, but the masses in CH are afraid of their own shadows and think that by following these “leaders” their lives will be better.

How is that working out for you so far??

Thank you for stepping up!
Very much appreciated !

No one is above the law of the country you live in

No one gets a pass on breaking the law, even if you disagree with it.
Do the Jewish kids who broke into 770 now get to say, we don’t have to respect authority?
I think the Black Lives Matter protesters who took over public streets without a valid permit, have rubbed off on their more kosher neighbors who are trying out disobedience and law breaking.
There is a public health crisis, made worse by people who ignore the rules and think that they are above the law.

Umm, no

For us to do nothing would be a chilul hashem, it would show that we are spineless pushovers. By us standing up for our rights as americans, we are making a big Kiddush hashem. Ted Cruz seems to agree

The difference being, 770 is a private place and the parks are public, if they can loot and riot in public then we can play on public parks.

Maybe he should have asked a Rav first? The media is in control.
Are we now in a Socialist Regime ?
