Overnight there was a bit of a fuss being raised because of a tweet made by the Democrat Mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio (aka “Mayor Blah de Blah”) that he could probably have phrased a bit better……
My message to the Jewish 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.

Naturally, the reactions didn’t go well for him…..

It bears repeating that the Mayor of New York literally put out a tweet where he threatened to arrest and detain members of the Jewish faith simply for congregating in large groups in his city.
If 1930’s Germany had Twitter, Goebbels would have typed the same tweet for Hitler.

OMG. The mayor of New York is literally advocating for the rounding up and arresting of Jews by law enforcement for practicing their constitutional rights. The Dems have gone to far.#VoteDemsOut #NV03 #Vote4Mindy https://t.co/53etJhNITm

Would DeBlasio have sent this identical tweet with the word “Jewish” replaced by any other religious minority? If not, why not? Laws should be enforced neutrally w/o targeting religious faith. #ProtectFreeExercise https://t.co/dMVcX0bin4

Sorry, not Sorry @NYCMayor … your threats against the Jews won’t hold up to their God given, Natural Rights secured by the Constitution in the First Amendment—inclusive of religion and gathering

I almost forgot that the Mayor of New York who now calls himself Bill de Blasio, was born Warren Wilhelm Jr.
Now I remember.
All equal under the law?

Imagine this tweet but with the word “black” or “muslim” or “gay” in place of “Jewish” https://t.co/S1JAD9T6CQ
