Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Twitchy.com: “Mayor Bill de Blasio threatens to shut down synagogue that hosted a huge wedding behind his back”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

It’s well known that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has it out for the Orthodox Jewish community when it comes to the coronavirus. Black Lives Matter marches draw thousands, and de Blasio reacts to those by painting Black Lives Matter in huge yellow letters on Fifth Avenue and elsewhere around the city. But Jewish gatherings really seem to rub de Blasio the wrong way. Now he’s threatening to shut down a synagogue that held a large wedding behind his back.

"There was a conscious effort to conceal what was going on," @BilldeBlasio says of Williamsburg Hasidic wedding that drew thousands of guests. Says city didn't know about it until after the fact.

The city fined the synagogue $15k. @ndhapple notes that with a capacity of 7,000 people, that comes out to just over $2 a head – how is that an effective deterrent? De Blasio says if there are further violations, it will be shut down.

To be honest, people of the Jewish faith have held religious ceremonies in secret for thousands of years for fear or persecution, the Egyptians, the Nazis, the governor of NY and the mayor of NYC they are all the same, authoritarian dictators.
