New York Governor Andrew Cuomo continues to rage against those who do not comply with his dictatorial COVID restrictions that limit the number of people that are allowed to gather in their own homes and places of worship.
The state’s top Democrat was already fuming after several upstate New York sheriffs gave him the bird by refusing to enforce his anti-Thanksgiving directive so he is taking his wrath out on the Jewish community.
Cuomo was incensed over viral social media footage of a large Brooklyn wedding held by Hasidic Jews which was secretly planned so as to avoid detection from Mayor Bill de Blasio’s goon squads and ordinary citizens encouraged to snitch on each other that attracted thousands of people to celebrate the nuptials
And – GASP – they were not wearing the humiliating face diapers mandated by tyrannical Democrats as a symbol of submission.
According to the New York Post:
Organizers schemed to hide the wedding of Yoel Teitelbaum, grandson of Satmar Grand Rabbi Aaron Teitelman, from “the ravenous press and government officials,” says a detailed account in the Yiddish newspaper Der Blatt, the publication of the Satmar sect.
“Due to the ongoing situation with government restrictions, preparations were made secretly and discreetly, so as not to draw attention from strangers,” the paper reported in its Nov. 13 edition.
“In recent weeks, organizers worked tirelessly to arrange everything in the best way possible. All notices about upcoming celebrations were passed along through word of mouth, with no notices in writing, no posters on the synagogue walls, no invitations sent through the mail, nor even a report in any publication, including this very newspaper.”
It is understandable the people of the Jewish persuasion would detest the masks with the obvious connotation to those yellow stars which were made mandatory by a certain infamous 20th-century European regime but Cuomo is out for blood.
Via The New York Post, “Gov. Cuomo calls Hasidic wedding in Brooklyn ‘blatant disregard of law’”:
Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Sunday blasted a Hasidic synagogue for hosting a secret maskless wedding with thousands of guests, saying the potential coronavirus super-spreader event was “a blatant disregard of the law” as he called on the de Blasio administration to investigate.
“It was a blatant disregard of the law. It’s illegal. It was also disrespectful to the people of New York,” Cuomo said during a press briefing at his Midtown office — prefacing the condemnation with a hedged “if that happened,” despite photos and videos showing the gathering.
“The law protects everybody. It protects you, but it also protects me,” he said.
Cuomo said that New York City “should do a robust investigation” of the Nov. 8 nuptials, and later noted that “from my information” the de Blasio administration is, in fact, investigating the matter.
What Cuomo continues to refer to as “laws” are in fact his own diktats that were not subjected to the proper process and were a court to dare to risk his ire, would likely be ruled as unconstitutional
New York City’s Jewish community has been repeatedly targeted by Mayor de Blasio
Just last month, Governor Cuomo threatened to shut down synagogues, now he has an excuse.
Cuomo’s demand for an investigation of the house of worship, the rabbi, organizers and those in attendance is a chilling echo of history when such anti-Jewish sentiment resulted in 6 million dead bodies and unthinkable suffering.
But this is what happens when a political party mainstreams anti-Semitism as the Democrats have done with their failure to reign in the likes of Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib who they have given high-profile status.
Not only does Cuomo have open contempt for the Constitution but he is becoming increasingly dangerous and unstable and has made it clear that he will use his power to mercilessly crush those who defy him – especially when it comes to Jews.
