(UnitedVoice.com) – Despite orders to limit crowd sizes and enforce social distancing, some Democrats are making exceptions for Black Lives Matter (BLM) protests. The latest in New York City. Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) said social justice matters were too important to stop even though he canceled all other large events through September. Calling it a “historic moment of change,” de Blasio said the BLM protests that started over a month ago have not led to an outbreak of COVID-19.
Of course, the city did shut down large parades effective immediately and are denying permits in parks. The ban also includes street fairs and events more than a block long. Currently, 70 miles of streets are closed to allow for social distancing and outdoor dining. However, the question many are asking, does the mayor have proof of his claim? And, what about other groups, is there proof they’re spreading COVID-19?
Three exemptions to de Blasio’s order include demonstrations, religious events, and press conferences. Something smells fishy — and it’s not the seafood markets.
