DeBlasio Beaten By His Own Game
Jewish children in New York City who were out celebrating carnival decided to put up a sign that read, “Justice for George Floyd” in the hopes that it would prevent NYPD from breaking up the gathering.
These clever Hasidic kids decided to turn their carnival into a "Justice for George Floyd" rally and now the NYPD cannot break it up.
Tonight's Justice for George Floyd Shabbat Services are sure to be interesting as well.

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio had previously called out the Jewish Community via Twitter in late April for continuing to gather for religious events such as funerals. Many in the Jewish community were upset by this and see de Blasio’s latest stance on mass protests as hypocritical.
The Jewish children felt that the bake sale was much less likely to be shut down by NYPD if it was also considered a protest in the name of George Floyd.
Joke going around the NYC Jewish community: Why does the groom break a glass at the chuppah? To trick @billdeblasio into thinking that it's only a riot and not, God forbid, a wedding.

The circumstances surrounding police crackdowns on protests against the police killing of George Floyd have received far more favourable attention than those protests to reopen the economy. In New York, Jewish funerals have been broken up by the NYPD under de Blasio’s direction.
I’m so old, I remember when Bill DeBlasio attacked the Jewish community for gathering at a funeral because it was “unsafe” and against social distancing.
If only Jewish people could learn to scream racism, block traffic, and defy police while burying their loved ones… https://t.co/AI7WQM4ARU

De Blasio has reversed his position on mass public gatherings to accommodate George Floyd protestors, but has not made any overtures or attempted to make amends with the Jewish community.
