WATCH: ‘No Regret’: Jew-hater De Blasio defends threatening Jews with arrest for attending a rabbi’s funeral

21

Watch Mayor Bill de Blasio defend himself for singling out Jews for condemnation, when trying to enforce New York City’s social distancing rules. Much of de Blasio’s statement was a lie. His claim that he will not tolerate anti-Semitism was particularly egregious. On the contrary, it is Mayor de Blasio’s tolerance and inaction against anti-Semitism that has made New York City dangerous for Jews.

In fact, the Simon Wiesenthal Center listed attacks on New York City’s Jews as the 6th worst case of anti-Semitism in 2019. The center referenced the “scant action” taken by New York City’s politicians in their report. The demands made by some Jewish groups for de Blasio to apologize are futile. That is because de Blasio knows that most Jewish voters in New York City will continue to support him and the Democrat Party. Why apologize if their are no political consequences? #Jexodus!

‘No Regret’: De Blasio Defends Statement Threatening Jews With Arrest For Attending A Rabbi’s Funeral

By Sara Carter, April 29, 2020:

A group of Jews gathered in Brooklyn late Tuesday to pay their respects to a prominent rabbi who recently passed away reportedly from the coronavirus. A local reporter was quickly tipped off to the event and shared photos on Twitter showing hundreds of Jews gathering.

The photos gained the attention of New York City’s Mayor Bill de Blasio, who decided to kick a group of mourners while they were down by singling them out and threatening them with arrest for “those who gather in large groups,” he wrote on Twitter Tuesday.

De Blasio defended his words in his Wednesday news conference saying it “was said with love, but it was tough love” pledging that he “won’t tolerate antisemitism” while condemning the Jewish community for “putting each other in danger and our police officers in danger.”

He concluded, “If in my passion and in my emotion, I said something that in any way was hurtful, I’m sorry about that, that was not my intention. But I also want to be clear, I’ve no regrets about calling out this danger and saying we’re going to deal with it very, very aggressively.”
