Video: Orthodox Jews Have Had Enough Of Cuomo, De Blasio, And Masks; Here’s What They Did
(Tea Party 247) – Orthodox Jews located in New York City in the borough of Brooklyn have apparently grown sick and tired of mask mandates and the failed leadership of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio, taking to the streets to block traffic and burn their masks in protest.
The main reason for the pushback is a threat by Cuomo to shut down synagogues if Jews don’t adhere to the ridiculous coronavirus restrictions his administration has put in place.
Folks, things are getting bad when you see this kind of stuff happening on the streets. It really is time to stop with the mask nonsense.
Several areas of the city have seen a spike in coronavirus cases, coinciding with the High Holiday season on the Jewish calendar. Traditionally, it is a time when observant Jews spend many days together in synagogues, praying, fasting, and celebrating.
On Monday, however, Cuomo threatened Jews: “I have to say to the Orthodox community tomorrow, ‘If you’re not willing to live with these rules, then I’m going to close the synagogues.” He later added that he would say the same to “black ministers.”
In response, the New York Post reported, some Orthodox Jews staged a protest at which they blocked intersections and set fire to a pile of coronavirus masks:
Hundreds of members of the Borough Park Orthodox community took to the streets Tuesday night, defying orders to disperse and lighting a fire in protest of new state-mandated restrictions imposed on area synagogues, schools and non-essential businesses over a COVID-19 surge.
One large crowd huddled closely together at the corner of 50th Street and 15th Avenue at about 9 p.m. as community activist Heshy Tischler ripped Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio over the order that shuts down schools completely and limits houses of worship to 10 people in certain COVID-19 hot spots.
Things also turned unruly when the crowd lit a rubbish fire after midnight at the intersection of 46th Street and 13th Avenue and chased away two city sheriff’s deputies who responded.
The defiant crowd chanted “Jewish lives matter” as they held their ground.

Wow. Just when you thought 2020 couldn’t get any stranger, this happens. With several months in the year still left, I’m almost afraid to ask what might be next.
Mask mandates are totally useless. The science says clearly that these things don’t do a darn thing to protect you from getting coronavirus. It’s just a means of trying to control the population. More and more folks are waking up to this truth, though it makes the left-wing furious. If masks worked to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, well, that would be a totally different animal, wouldn’t it?
It’ll be interesting to see how this particular protest movement progresses forward and how Cuomo and de Blasio will handle it while trying to avoid looking like anti-Semites.
