Mayor Bill de Blasio has come under fire for his heavy-handed leadership during the lockdown but it is his ongoing harassment of New York City’s Jewish community that truly conjures visions of Nazi Germany.
Like many other Democrats who have exploited the coronavirus pandemic to unleash their inner totalitarian, de Blasio has acted as a dictator, encouraged snitching and sent his police after those who would dare to disobey him.
On Monday, he sent them after the Jews.
Police raided a Brooklyn Yeshiva where 60 students were gathered in a flagrant violation of the First Amendment and an escalation in the left’s war on all religions not named Islam.
But it was the gleeful tweet that Hizzoner sent out after the raid that was the most outrageous.
According to de Blasio:
“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.”
The boastful nature of the tweet was disturbing enough but the Big Apple mayor took it to another level by scapegoating the Jewish children as health hazards, something straight out of Hitler’s playbook.
One of those who was outraged is Republican Senator Ted Cruz who upped the ante by suggesting that the Justice Department should investigate de Blasio the “next time” that the persecuted religious minority is targeted by his regime.
