The Mayor of New York City (and a former Dem 2020 contender) threatens the Jewish community and then dispatches the police to hand out coronaphobia tickets in Jewish neighborhoods. Then some geniuses decide to attack Jewish people. And the media will awkwardly back away from this story, whereas if it had involved President Trump, we would never stop hearing about it.
Will a reporter ask Bill de Blasio about this? Good luck. Much the same odds as the media showing any interest in his own anti-Semitic harassment. Meanwhile the media will endlessly wring its hands and clutch its pearls because Trump mentioned China at a press conference.
The attack occurred on Sunday night in the Williamsburg section of the borough. Paulo Pinho, 35, and wife, Clelia Pinho, 46, jumped out of their vehicle at Bedford Ave. and Ross St. where they confronted the three male victims, police said.
“You Jews are getting us all sick,” the couple yelled at a trio of men, according to police sources quoted by the New York Daily News on Monday, before adding: “The mayor says you Jews are the reason we’re getting sick.”
The Pinho couple combined their verbal abuse with a physical assault against the three men, with Clelia Pinho falling down and breaking her arm as she attempted to rip off their masks.
This bunch were clearly geniuses. “The Jews are are diseased, let’s grab their masks.” But who else takes De Blasio seriously.
Mayor de Blasio meanwhile strongly denounced Sunday’s attack, saying that the Pinhos would likely face hate crimes charges.
“Whether it is this horrible antisemitic act that we saw or the horrible anti-Asian acts we saw in previous weeks, none of these acts of bias or discrimination are acceptable in New York City,” de Blasio declared on Monday.
Considering that one of these idiots broke her arm, I don’t know that they need additional charges. But there does need to be an independent investigation of Bill de Blasio’s actions.
