New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Thursday that he is banning all large gatherings in the city in a bid to stop the spread of coronavirus, but gave exception to Black Lives Matters protests insisting the historic demonstrations must be respected. Speaking to CNNs Wolf Blitzer Thursday night, de Blasio said the demonstrators calls for social justice and racial equality were too important to silence, considering more than a month of protests had not caused a spike in COVID-19 cases. While protests will be permitted to take place without push-back, de Blasio said that all other large events would be cancelled in the city through September.

Did you mis-copy this from the Babylon Bee?
More proof of how government is your greatest enemy.
Cuomo should give this clown the axe.
Else N.Y. City as a financial base for taxes will be gone.
Anyone who has a business located in the Big City is a fool.
Wow. They are getting bold. They all need to take a long dirt nap.
The NYC mayor must have been threatened.
There is no New York City anymore. You people didn’t grow up here. Under Giuliani it was a great city. That’s gone. This is the Soviet socialist Republic of whatever.
I have no strings attached year I can just move to Pennsylvania when I want. Staten island is still fine when it changes I’ll go
We have insane leaders to n many major Democrat cities. we owe 26 or 27 trillion dollars and are about to add another trillion and a half to it.
Cities are burning. Monuments are being torn down. White people are losing their jobs if they say anything that the left is offended by. Whites are being degraded at work.

Have the cable news networks covered this insanity? Somehow I doubt it. It will not play well across America.
What about the Democratic mantra: “no one is above the law
How can they tell since they prohibit contact tracers from asking about protest/riot attendance?
It’s not playing well in NYC or NYS.
Hence the decades long decline in House districts as residents vote with their feet.
Fear not. We have to hang together or hang separately.
One of the reasons the governor of PA issued a mandatory facemask order last week was that he knows damn well he cant shut businesses down again even if everyone in PA is infected with COVID-19, and hes going to lose a lot of court battles over his prior shutdown orders. And hes going to lose those court battles because the photos and video clips of him demonstrating with crowds at Black Lives Matter protests will he entered as evidence by every person and business who fights these orders in court.
It started in late June when the state health department tried to get a court order to shut down the Carlisle Auto Show. The judge basically laughed the state lawyers out of her courtroom ... and asked how they could possibly argue that large crowds are a health risk when THE GOVERNOR OF THE STATE was out parading around in large crowds with no face covering and no social distancing.

If BLM were smart, they would run a slate of candidates for political office
They’ll probably just walk in and take these seats until people start ventilating a few.
This had to be the Babylon Bee.
The mayor is banning demonstrations by LGBT groups but not BLM.
This will not be tolerated!
I wonder if the left sees the country as falling apart but for completely different and wrong reasons.
Let's see the detailed studies that were apparently conducted and peer-reviewed in record in order to arrive at this conclusion with such certitude.
