New York City mayor Bill de Blasio openly admitted that the city is restricting any and all public gatherings *except* for Black Lives Matter riots and protests, while speaking with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Thursday.
De Blasio first emphasized his administration was committed to purging any public events and gatherings in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
“Things like outdoor concerts and parades… Things that here in this city could mean not just thousands, but tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of people. It’ s just not time for that now.”
De Blasio pivoted shamelessly, openly flouting his double standard when Blitzer mentioned the ongoing protests and riots.
“Look, this is always a area of real sensitivity. If you’re just talking about health, we would always say, hey folks, stay home if you can… But we understand this moment in history people are talking about the need for historic changes. I mean today, in New York City, recognizing the power and the meaning of the message of Black Lives Matter, which we did in front of Trump Tower today,” said de Blasio of a puerile stunt the city had orchestrated, painting the phrase ‘Black Lives Matter’ on a street in front of Trump Tower in an empty gesture targeting Donald Trump. “This is a historic moment of change. We have to respect that.”
Blitzer declined to challenge de Blasio on his open double standard, immediately pivoting to a question about tennis and the upcoming U.S. open.
View the insightful exchange here:
As de Blasio goes through with symbolic, meaningless gestures, his administration steadfastly refuses to abolish the New York Police Department in response to the demands of racial activists, ensuring that the mayor will continue to be broadly unpopular in the city.
Shootings and crime have risen significantly since the onset of the latest Black Lives Matter riots, and the mass looting that occurred in the city has been among the worst in the country.
GOA Endorses Based Pro-Second Amendment Black Man for North Carolina Lieutenant Governor
On August 4, 2020, Gun Owners of America (GOA) announced that it endorsed Mark Robinson for Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina.
Tim Macy, chairman of Gun Owners of America, declared, “We all remember the impassioned speech given by Mr. Robinson at the Greensboro City Council meeting. His ‘I’m the majority’ speech reverberated across the country, and launched Mr. Robinson down a path of advocating for and defending the Second Amendment on a national scale.”
Macy added, “Mark Robinson, who is a GOA life member, has promised to give ‘not one inch on the Second Amendment,’ and to defend our God-given right to keep and bear arms. GOA is glad to be able to support him in taking this position to the North Carolina State Government.”
Robinson made a name for himself by giving a powerful speech against the Greensboro City Council’s attempt to cancel a gun show in 2018 following the Parkland shooting, which sparked a massive wave of gun control across the nation.
Robinson’s valiant defense of the Second Amendment in this instance turned him into a national icon and is likely going to propel him to victory in the 2020 General Election.
