Mayor Bill de Blasio couldn’t wait to tweet about his Cease and Desist Order targeting a Yeshiva for conducting classes – he seemed almost gleeful about the NYPD shutting them down. Both his actions and his tweet are pretty damn repugnant:
Earlier today the NYPD shut down a Yeshiva conducting classes with as many as 70 children. I can’t stress how dangerous this is for our young people. We’re issuing a Cease and Desist Order and will make sure we keep our communities and our kids safe.

Not the first time de Blasio has targeted and threatened the Jews.
Ted Cruz was more than happy to remind the mayor about their Constitutional right to religious freedom that does NOT go away because of a pandemic.
The next time NYC's mayor sends out a gleeful tweet about sending cops after Jews, the DOJ should investigate to make sure he's not violating constitutionally guaranteed religious liberties. Actually, they should have done it after the last one. https://t.co/BU61pkh27y

DOJ should absolutely investigate and not the next time he does this.
He’s already done it twice.
Or the one before that. Or the one before that.

Three times? Four?
Sounds like de Blasio has a history of targeting this community.
There is never an excuse for Antisemitism! DeBlasio has. certainly showed his during the Covid 19 pandemic. No matter his bluster, he doesn't care about constitutional rights and doesn't hide his bias!

These lockdowns have given bad men (and women, hello Gretch) way too much authority and power.
Why do these mayors think they are God now

They don’t necessarily believe in God so it’s easy for them to assume the role.
He doesn't single out any other minority groups, he has a pattern of these attacks.
JTA – In 2019, New York City: More than half of the year’s 61 anti-Semitic physical assaults took place in the five boroughs. Brooklyn felt the brunt with 25, more than a third of the total.

Paging the DOJ …
