Cuomo vs. Jews: ‘We Know Religious Institutions Have Been a Problem’

Posted on | October 6, 2020 | 1 Comment


Over the weekend, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced he would “close non-essential businesses and all schools, both public and private, in nine ZIP codes in South Brooklyn and Central Queens where coronavirus cases have surged for weeks.” All of these ZIP codes have large Orthodox Jewish communities, and the definition of “surged” seems rather arbitrary — an average of 3% positive COVID-19 test results. We are told that “experts” consider this to be a crucial metric, but the same “experts” tell us that New York City has been a model for “containment” even though the city has the highest coronavirus death rate in the world.

Now, Governor Granny-Killer has taken charge of the pogrom:

New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo displayed a 2006 image of Jews congregating to single out the religious community when warning that enhanced lockdown measures are likely to come if the gatherings persist.
“We know religious institutions have been a problem,” Cuomo said during a Monday press conference. “These are pictures from the past couple of weeks. And these are just emblematic. … What did you think was going to happen?”
The images Cuomo displayed, however, are more than a decade old, from the funeral of Rabbi Moshe Teitelbaum, who died in 2006.
Cuomo’s comments came as the New York governor also declared the state was taking over coronavirus lockdown enforcement from New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who tried to selectively reimpose tight restrictions on several zip codes only to be overruled by Cuomo. Several schools in hot-spot areas, however, will be shut down starting Tuesday. Cuomo gave no date for reopening.

What Democrats are saying is that New York doesn’t have a COVID-19 problem, New York has a Jew problem. Why are Cuomo and de Blasio engaged in this kind of anti-Semitic scapegoating? Because it is politically convenient for them. Democrats have figured out that their electoral success is now dependent on appealing to black, Latino and immigrant voters who, to put it as charitably as possible, don’t like Jews very much.

Think about the anti-Semitic hate crimes that have plagued New York in recent months. Who is committing those crimes? Hint: Not Republicans.

Nobody in the media wants to talk about this, because it’s one of those facts that doesn’t fit the preferred narrative, where Trump-voting “white supremacists” are supposed to be the anti-Semitic bogeyman.
