“Rioters and looters” were your words

They are protesting anti black and racist sentiment. They need the Jewish community, their neighbors , to join with them and say black lives matter. If for any reason you have a hard time saying “black lives matter” you need to ask yourself why. We should be standing with our neighbors now.

No one has an issue with peaceful protests on the opposite we all agree what happened is wrong.

We have an issue with the mayor of our city refusing to stop looters and criminals but when we want to open our business so we can feed our family the mayor shuts it down.

Protesting?

Protesting?

Destroying other people’s property is not “protesting”, yet our idiot mayor thinks it’s ok.

On the other hand, a small store owner just trying to make a living is not ok.

Virus

There is a reason for the lockdown. To stop the spread of the virus. Public riots will spread the virus much further than any responsible store will. What we are seeing are one set of rules by politicians trying to protect themselves from being accused of racism and therefore allowing the spread of the virus and another set of rules for small businesses and for Jews in general. Jews congregating in Williamsburg is wrong. Rioters congregating in cities throughout the US is wrong. There is no such thing as a peaceful protest if they are spreading the virus. The mayor… Read more »

And so does civility. I disagree with joining a misguided protest. The police system needs some help in figuring out a way to prevent bad apples from getting into their ranks, and or from acting inappropriately. Black lives matters is a skewed platform with lots of well meaning people. Black Lives Matter needs to do a better job of stopping illegality perpetrated in the name of Black Lives Matter. They should find out who and how the riots and vandalism start, and who torches a police car burning and who throws things at police and their cars, and root it… Read more »

Not true, and unfair. Apparently she was arrested for unlawful assembly.

Demand he step down.

Demand he step down.

Many people in the Jewish community endorsed this mayor and encouraged others to vote for him. He was a horrible leader then and he’s only gotten worse.

Still not safe

The daily new case load is still above 1,000 for NY. That is the reported cases. The actual number of new cases per day, is likely much greater

Either way, it is more than enough to seed another round if the mitigations are removed. And, it is just about certain that the number of new deaths would be similar to the catastrophe just passed.

So, it’s a case of making somebody else die for your parnosa.

Liquor stores are essential? Target is essential Home depot is essential? So is this really about our safety or big donors from big box stores and tax revenue from alcohol sales.

Worst mayor of a large city in the U.S.

Worst mayor of a large city in the U.S.

DeBlasio is the most astounding hypocrite ever! The dangers of the pandemic went out the window to allow these protests/riots under De Blasio’s encouragement and support! Why couldn’t they protest on social media and stay home? Why is the constitutional right to protest more important than other constitutional rights we gave up in order for people to be safe? Why does social distancing and not spreading the virus have no consideration here? Hes lacks everything a leader needs. Hard working business owners and workers who want to reopen NY have been treated like violators, and criminals are left to run… Read more »

Read the midrashim and aggados about how the Sedom “legal system” operated. That is now happening all over again. We are living in modern Sedom.

This is such garbage!

He doesn’t stand with violent people, looting and rioting. He stands with black people. Innocent people who do not deserve to die. Most of you talk the same way Israel haters talk about us. Not all black people are criminals. Not all police officers are bad. Not all protests are violent. Not all Jews are racist. Well at least I hope so.
