New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is threatening to reinstate coronavirus lockdowns, as Manhattan and New York City residents increasingly ignore the state government’s rules for social distancing and safe activity.
At a Sunday press conference in Albany, Cuomo threatened that businesses flouting the rules for capacity restrictions could lose their liquor licenses.
“I am warning today in a nice way: consequences of your actions,” said the governor, once praised by progressives for his daily press conferences, before his responsibility in a nursing home containment scandal was revealed. “We have 25,000 complaints statewide. I’m not going to turn a blind eye to them.”
The Democrat chided what he saw as careless revelers, openly warning that he would place the state back into its original strict coronavirus restrictions if the public didn’t obey him.
“They are rampant and there’s not enough enforcement,” he said of photos of crowds at Manhattan bars. “I am not going to allow situations to exist that we know have a high likelihood of causing an increase in the spread of the virus.”
“If we have to close, then people are going to hold you accountable.”
Despite his chiding against bargoers and crowds, Cuomo utterly failed to even so much as lightly scold the large crowds of left-wing protestors and race rioters who have taken to the streets of New York City in a fashion utterly dismissive of the coronavirus threat and social distancing. Just on Sunday, progressives gathered in close proximity in the thousands for a “Black Trans Lives Matter” protest, flagrantly violating the state’s social distancing requirements in a manner that left New Yorkers shaking their heads at the shameless cowardice and hypocrisy of their state government.
A huge percentage of the country was told they couldn’t hold funerals for loved ones, worship together, or even open businesses for months. Many of those restrictions still stand even now.
The distrust and resentment from this double standard will far outlast this pandemic. pic.twitter.com/v10v1Hs9z2

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti: It’s Time to Cancel “Everything”
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti sternly instructed residents of his city to cease all outgoing activities of everyday life, citing the county’s dismal coronavirus prospects, which he states are worse than what the nation’s second-largest city faced in March.
“It’s time to hunker down. It’s time to cancel everything. If it isn’t essential, don’t do it.”
Los Angeles County officials enacted a full coronavirus shutdown for three weeks last week, strictly limiting permissible activities and placing the county in a lockdown similar to those utilized across the country at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in March. Cases, hospitalizations and deaths are spiking, and county officials are concerned the city’s medical system is unprepared to accommodate a surge in coronavirus cases similar to that seen in New York earlier in the year.
Black Lives Matter protestors have staged nightly protests outside of Garcetti’s house demanding special privileges for individuals charged with felonies. However, the Mayor’s emergency order exempts protest gatherings from restrictions, placing them in the same category as congregating for religious services.
Garcetti was seen congregating in a group of chanting BLM demonstrators earlier in the year. Angelenos can only hope that their neighbors will execute greater discretion in the interest of public health and saving lives than their mayor has.
