Op-ed:
Bill DeBlasio...Showing His True Colors
By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on American

There is an old saying that “actions speak louder than words,” but sometimes the two actually do go hand-in-hand as one feeds off the other, and most times not in a very good way. And just one week ago we saw words and actions being coupled together in the most despicable of ways when New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio gave new meaning to the words anti-Semite.

And it was last Tuesday that they gathered to bury one of their own as hundreds of Hasidic Jews came together in Brooklyn Heights to pay their final respects to one Rabbi Chaim Mertz. Wearing face masks and with many standing the recommended distance apart... those gathered were deep in prayer when Mayor Bill DeBlasio himself showed up like a gestapo general on a mission to disperse the mourners after he and his office had in fact given them permission to gather.

And to add insult to injury...this man...this mayor...who previously had closed New York City's churches and synagogues over fear of a virus but left mosques open for daily prayers and gatherings, was the same man...the same mayor...who pledged to serve 500,000 halal meals to aid New York's starving...sarcastically said...muslim community during their “skipping lunch” Ramadan pseudo fast while the city's shutdown is still in affect...and to do so at 32 muslim gathering centers. Do the math folks as that equals to 15,625 muslims per gathering center. Talk about crowds huddled together and spreading the virus he so supposedly fears.

But even while knowing that this could come back to haunt...and it has...DeBlasio still had the unmitigated gall to post these words...this threat...about the rabbi's funeral on twitter, “My message to the Jewish community, and all communities, is this simple: the time for warnings has passed,” adding that, “I have instructed the NYPD to proceed immediately to summons or even arrest those who gather in large groups...”

Shades of Nazi Germany I think, for this is exactly how the mindset of ethnic cleansing starts, as in singling out a specific group of people to unfairly target. And most folks already know that Bill DeBlasio is no friend to New York's Jewish community no matter how sweetly he smiles while pretending to be. Now using COVID-19 to perpetrate and spread his special brand of anti-Semitism, this tweet of his surely channels DeBlasio's inner Hitler as he knows well that anti-Semitic crimes have dramatically risen 20% under his watch, specifically attacks against the city's ultra Orthodox communities with little or no action taken from his office. And it's this very inaction that angered former New York City Mayor Rudi Giuliani...the man forever rightly known as “America's Mayor”...to such a degree that this past December 29th he issued the following statement regarding DeBlasio,The rise in anti-Semitic violence in NYC is something that could have been stopped at a much earlier stage if the City had a Mayor who embraced the Broken Windows Theory, or at the least, a Mayor who worked full time & paid attention to what was going on.”

And it's here where the former mayor is making reference to Kristallnacht...the Night of Broken Glass”...when on the night of November 9–10, 1938, Nazi party members, under Hitler's orders, destroyed Jewish businesses and property also killing many in turn. In fact, New York City had not that long ago enacted a form of law enforcement known as the “Broken Windows” policy...a reference that went back to Kristallnacht...in an effort to bring down the escalating number of anti-Semetic "hate crimes" happening on DeBlasio's watch..."hate crimes" DeBlasio haplessly blamed on what he called the Trump initiated “atmosphere in D.C.”...as well as to help crackdown on what was consisdered to be minor offenses against any minority group not just Jews. 

So while “Broken Windows” also hoped to set a standard by which to ward off larger more serious crimes, DeBlasio, his cohorts and minions claimed that the “Broken Windows” policy actually resulted in “aggressive over-policing of minority communities.” But isn't that the very thing DeBlasio himself has done with his trying to break up a gathering...a funeral service for a religious leader...a “special gathering” he and his office had already approved. Yes...unequivicly yes it is...while at the same time making it clear, at least to me, that in his position as mayor, Bill DeBlasio will not use the police to protect the Jewish community, but that he will use the police to target those belong to said community for arrest instead.

And of course the shills now had to cover for the mayor's grievous comments and actions especially after large crowds had already gathered earlier the same day to watch a flyover by the Navy's Blue Angels and the Air Force's Thunderbirds to honor health-care workers. And that response came via City Hall spokeswoman Olivia Lapeyrolerie who said that no special permits were issued for said funeral which was claimed to fall under the banner of a “special gathering.” But know that in New York City funerals do not legally fall under the category of a “special gathering” or any of the other events listed as needing a permit as per the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation Regulations, the very department which handles special types of permits. Translation: Mayor DeBlasio's spokeswoman is lying about the Hasidic Jews needing a permit for the funeral service...a service scheduled to be fairly short in duration.

But while New York funeral directors have been told by Governor Cuomo's office to limit wakes and funeral services to as few immediate family members as possible, exceptions have been made and are still being made with but a simple request asked, a request the Hasidic congregation had indeed asked for...a request that supposedly DeBlasio himself had approved. How can that be proven...by the fact that two hours before the funeral service was to begin the NYPD brought in trucks with barriers and tower lights to close off Bedford Avenue and the surrounding area in preparation for the funeral. Only the mayor and police chief could have approved this action. And so as promised the barriers were put up, the mourners gathered as they were given permission to do, and DeBlasio now had his much needed and so wanted photo-op regarding people breaking his social distancing mandate...entrapment of the very worst kind.

"My words were said with love, but it was tough love.”..."If in my passion and in my emotion I said something that in any way was hurtful, I’m sorry about that, it was not my intention.”..."But I also want to be clear, I have no regrets about calling out this danger and saying we’re going to deal with it very, very aggressively.” - Mayor Bill DeBlasio's words of apology that were anything but an apology.

So with the fallout starting to rain down on the mayor for his additional words said...like "I make no apology...The next gathering will be met with summons and arrests. Period."...as well as for his vile actions taken, it was the fallout itself being the only thing that led to Bill DeBlasio issuing the above stated apology...a sad excuse of an apology most definitely not from the heart but an apology issued to save his political career alone. Why so...simply because when politicians from both sides of the political aisle as well as the heads of major Jewish organizations...organizations that are big time Democrat party donors...chime in to call you to task you best issue an apology post-haste.

And DeBlasio half heartedly did what was expected after Anti-Defamation League head, registered Democrat and former Special Assistant to Barack HUSSEIN Obama, Jonathan Greenblatt said of DeBlasio in a tweet, “Hey @NYCMayor, there are 1mil+ Jewish people in #NYC. The few who don’t social distance should be called out — but generalizing against the whole population is outrageous especially when so many are scapegoating Jews.” And Ronald Lauder, president of the World Jewish Congress, recommended that his organization formally censure DeBlasio, while putting his two cents in with the issuing of these words, “Mayor de Blasio needs to realize that while he, like all of us, believes in the importance of social distancing, every time a leader like him stereotypes the ‘Jewish community,’ he feeds into the dangerous agenda of white supremacists and anti-Semites around the world. It needs to end.”

Now also add in that a spokesperson for the American Jewish Committee stated that, "The vast majority of the Jewish community is following the guidelines. You can find us donating blood, raising money to support our neighbors, and in emergency rooms providing critical care. We deserve better from our leaders than misplaced generalizations and finger-pointing.”

Yes, you surely do especially in light of these words issued by the Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Council, "Only bigots have a problem when a few 100 Hasidim do what thousands of people in the same city have done the same day (not social distance)"...in reference to the previously stated earlier in the day flyover gathering.

How very right these words are.

And here are but two of the many examples on the political end. Republican Senator Ted Cruz tweeted that, “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,” while Democrat New York City Councilman Kalman Yeger said it was unacceptable of the mayor to condemn an entire community saying, "Mr. Mayor, your words are unacceptable. To condemn our entire community over one group of people is something you would not do to any other ethnic group, and I know you long enough to know that you know this."

How true Councilman Yeger's words are for Bill DeBlasio would never dare...or would he...utter such words or issue such threats against the city's black or muslim communities. And yet he freely and with malice intended condemned the entire Jewish community and threatened the use NYPD force if they did not comply with his wishes, some of which was actually witnessed by the fact that while there were no arrests, a dozen summonses were issued citing social distancing violations and refusal to disperse from what was an already approved gathering. And while this seems not to be that serious of a police reaction, who knows how long it will be before the opportunity arises for this vile man to target either the Jewish community or yet a different minority or religious group with an even stronger hand.

So maybe now instead of calling Bill DeBlasio mayor, the people of New York should start calling him Fuehrer DeBlasio instead...just saying.

UPDATE: Just this past Thursday, following a 311 report about social distancing violations (translation: ratting out your neighbors) regarding another (mask wearing) albeit much smaller funeral gathering in a different Brooklyn Orthodox Jewish community, witnesses said they personally saw police handcuff a young boy. The NYPD has confirmed that a 17-year old boy was taken into custody and that 11 summons were issued, with all being for violating DeBlasio's social distancing orders. DeBlasio's true colors have indeed shown through as he has turned "New York's Finest" into his own personal "brown shirt" police force. Shameful actions at the very least as was his self-congratulatory tweet, "The time for warnings has passed." DeBlasio's war on New York's Orthodox (Hasidic) Jewish communities has now, it seems, begun with one having to wonder which minority group will be his next target.
