In case you missed it, COVID19 is over.
At least in Brooklyn:
The north end of Prospect Park has turned into a dance party, and every few minutes screams of joy just roll across the park, like a wave at a baseball game pic.twitter.com/ATifpgfuMg

At least that's what *some* large gatherings have been called.?

Well, to be fair, some “large gatherings” are more equal than others. BLM/Antifa protests and riots, for example, are not superspreader events, but rather necessary means to a more socially just end.
And anyway, it’s not like Jews were congregating in Prospect Park. Because then we’d have a problem.
If only these were orthodox jews we could crack down on them

It's fine, covid is only contagious among Trump supporters and Orthodox Jews https://t.co/lRRQAPTquD

OK, let's pretend these are orthodox Jews so we can get Mayor deBlasio to send in the SWAT teams….

Seriously. If the Prospect Park partiers had been wearing yarmulkes, their celebration would’ve been cut real short, real fast:
Last night: Thousands of @JoeBiden supporters including @BilldeBlasio & @chuckschumer are dancing on the streets squeezed together like sardines, 5 miles down the road NYS agents are handing out COVID fines to struggling Jewish shop owners in Brooklyn

This is religious targeting and bigotry. https://t.co/nInRUJsSho

It absolutely is. And New York’s government has given it their blessing.
So, effectively, have the media.
Not one major journalist or public health official condemned any of this. Not one. You caused the loss of trust in public health. Period. https://t.co/jjPdec5cvw
