New York City Coronavirus Contact Tracers Won’t Even Ask About Left-Wing Protests and Riots
In a display of monumental hypocrisy, so-called contact tracers tasked with investigating the activities of everyday citizens to stop the spread of coronavirus have been instructed not to ask about attendance at left-wing protests by New York Mayor Bill de Blasio.
De Blasio spokeswoman Avery Cohen confirmed that “no person will be asked proactively if they attended a protest” in an email to The City over the matter.
Blasio’s free pass to leftist activists all but sends the message that coronavirus social distancing rules were never taken seriously by the progressive yet unpopular mayor.
The mass left-wing protests and criminal riots that have occurred in the city of New York have flagrantly violated the city’s social distancing requirements, which remain theoretically in effect in the city that some have pointed to as the global epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic.
New Yorkers who attend events at bars, churches, and even their friends and families’ homes can expect to be hounded over their whereabouts by the city contact tracers in the event that someone they interacted with comes down with coronavirus. But rioters and protestors, who have been seen congregating in crowds that easily pose a far greater danger of mass transmission than church services or restaurants, won’t be questioned as it relates to their willful and unnecessary violation of social distancing restrictions at the mass gatherings.
“If a person wants to proactively offer that information, there is an opportunity for them to do so,” contended De Blasio’s spokeswoman.
Never again will the hypocrite elected officials of the Left and the Democratic Party receive an ounce of credibility in imposing mass restrictions in public health crises. Their priority has been clearly demonstrated to be securing political power, as opposed to public health.
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
