Orthodox Jewish Protestors Burn Masks In Response To Cuomo’s New COVID Restrictions


The people of New York are starting to fight back against the Democratic dictatorship in New York.

A large group of Orthodox Jewish protesters assembled in Brooklyn last night and burned masks after new COVID restrictions have been passed down from Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Many of the protesters feel that the Jewish community has been used as scapegoats by Gov. Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio for the increase in Coronavirus cases in the month of September.

It’s unfair for Governor Cuomo to single out the Jewish community for the spread of the virus.

While he has yet to say even a word about the BLM protests that involved mass gatherings.

On top of that, he even threatened to shut down synagogues.

I can see why there is an outrage!

Fox News didn’t play around and had this to say:

Orthodox Jewish protesters gathered in Brooklyn on Tuesday night, burning masks and accusing Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo of using them as scapegoats for the recent spike in COVID-19 infections.

Crowds of hundreds in the Borough Park neighborhood refused to disperse, despite directives by police officers on the scene.

De Blasio repeatedly has warned that anyone not complying with mask mandates will be fined up to $1,000, but the New York Police Department told Fox News that no fines were issued and no arrests were made during Tuesday’s demonstrations.

The mayor said some 1,200 law-enforcement personnel were hitting the streets Wednesday to enforce the coronavirus rules — a jump of 200 from last week, a New York Post reporter noted.

Protesters on Tuesday night chanted “Jewish lives matter,” decrying new restrictions by state officials that have reduced religious gatherings at synagogues to 10 people or less and shuttered schools and nonessential businesses in nine neighborhoods.

 AP News stayed busy and reported these details:

Amid a new surge of COVID-19 in New York’s Orthodox Jewish communities, many members are reviving health measures that some had abandoned over the summer — social distancing, wearing masks. For many, there’s also a return of anger: They feel the city is singling them out for criticism.

The latest blow: an order Monday from Gov. Andrew Cuomo temporarily closing public and private schools in several areas with large Orthodox populations. It will take effect Tuesday.

“People are very turned off and very burned out,” said Yosef Hershkop, a Hasidic Jew from Brooklyn who works for a chain of urgent-care centers. “It’s not like we’re the only people in New York getting COVID.”

Governor Cuomo needs to get off his power trip fast.

The way he has been running New York since the pandemic has been absolutely terrible and this protest reflects how the people of  New York are feeling right about now.
