He won’t let Jewish children play in parks but he will allow the wholesale looting and destruction of this city. A true Nazi.
It’s religious Jews who are taking the law into their own hands, for wanting their children to play in a public park. Yet the Left destroying Manhattan and Brooklyn is not a problem for this piece of garbage. It’s astonishing that at a time when New York City is on life support, De Blasio would spend his time attacking Brooklyn’s Jewish community over access to a public park. Mayor Bill de Blasio is a ruthless and dangerous anti-Semite!
So let me get this straight? Everyone other than orthodox Jews (who simply want to let their children play in city parks) are allowed to take the law into their own hands in New York City?
What the hell is going on here? https://t.co/nECnj3jYGT

De Blasio Threatens Jews: ‘We’re Not Going to Let People Take Law Into Their Own Hands’
By The Jewish Press, June 16, 2020
After an evening in which Hizzoner was confronted with real honest-to-goodness defiance and rebellion from the Orthodox Jewish community for the very first time in his tenure, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio told reporters during his news briefing Tuesday morning the city “will not allow people to take the law into their own hands” and break open parks without permission.
Just for comparison, readers, so you can see just how ludicrous that statement really is, here’s a tweet with a photo of the “beautiful, huge crowd” that gathered less than 24 hours prior at the Black Trans Lives Matter rally at the Brooklyn Museum, as city workers would soon be welding shut the Middleton Park gates in Williamsburg. Were they taking the law into their own hands? Not really Mayor de Blasio has different standards for the thousands of Black Lives Matter protesters than he does for Jews.

The mayor’s statement Tuesday was specifically directed toward the actions taken late in the day Monday by a group of Orthodox Jewish lawmakers and an Orthodox Jewish activist who cut the locks and chains off the gates to the municipal parks in the Brooklyn neighborhoods of Boro Park, Williamsburg and Midwood.
The 18th Avenue Park (Gravesend Park), Middleton Park in Williamsburg and the Avenue L Park in Midwood were also opened by these lawmakers and activists, as well as several parks the next day.
The incidents took place after city workers had the audacity to actually weld the gates closed on the popular Middleton playground in Williamsburg early Monday morning.
Bill De Blasio ordered this park’s gates to be welded shut to enforce “social distancing” a day after a massive BLM rally just blocks away
The park is in the heart of a Jewish Community
Maybe it’s not really about social distancing after all?

That event took place less than a day after thousands of protesters actively crowded together at the Brooklyn Library to demonstrate — again — against the death of George Floyd and express their rage against the NYPD, demanding the city defund the police department to the tune of $1 billion, or more.
The obvious, clear double standard demonstrated by the mayor towards Jews and protesters is still being discussed on social media by civilian New Yorkers and lawmakers alike.
– Embraced unchecked protests which are against the law (no permits; blocking roadways).
– Does not keep demanding distancing at protests.
– Told Contact Tracers not to ask about protests.
– Says children at parks against the rules is a problem for Coronavirus. pic.twitter.com/ZWykZkgK15
