Yesterday, Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted out a warning to the “Jewish community” just days after celebrating Muslims by offering Halal meals.
De Blasio’s tweet read,
My message to the Jewish community, and all communities, is this simple: the time for warnings has passed. I have instructed the NYPD to proceed immediately to summons or even arrest those who gather in large groups. This is about stopping this disease and saving lives. Period.

Interesting imagery of a certain infamous leader pops into mind when reading this tweet. (And Twitter followers were quick to point out that imagery, mocking him with memes and such.)
More importantly, this isn’t the first time he’s openly targeted a particular group of religious people during this pandemic.
De Blasio was on camera just a couple weeks ago saying that he would shut down churches permanently, if they didn’t comply with his draconian orders.
A small number of religious communities, specific churches, specific synagogues are unfortunately not paying attention to this guidance [to close] even though it’s been so widespread…. If you go to your synagogue, if you go to your church and attempt to hold services after having been told so often not to, our enforcement agents will have no choice but to shut down those services….
The NYPD, Fire Department, Buildings Department, and everyone has been instructed that if they see worship services going on…they’ll inform them they need to stop the services and disperse. If that does not happen, they will take additional action up to the point of fines and potentially closing the building permanently.
It’s clear there is a bias here.
De Blasio celebrates those Muslims who are being good little boys and obeying daddy government. The focus is on how they are doing great and are just a wonderful group of people.
To the Muslim New Yorkers beginning their celebrations tonight who need halal meals, we have them across our 400+ grab and go meal sites, and are bringing hundreds of thousands more to the 32 sites most frequented by our Muslim communities. Go to https://t.co/CXRUjdE37k for more.

Out of the same mouth, De Blasio deals with Christians and Jews by threatening them for not doing exactly what he demands.
Maybe Muslims are just that much better at following the rules. That is possible, I guess.
But considering the regularity with which Democrats have shown bias in favor of Muslims over the years, that’s not likely the case. It’s far more probable that this is just more of the same intentional bullying of the “religious right” for political purposes.
Bill de Blasio is doing exactly what the Left constantly claims to be a mortal sin. He is discriminating against certain groups and giving a pass or privileges to others.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
