“Let’s be clear about something: if there is a spike in coronavirus cases in the next two weeks, don’t blame the protesters. Blame racism,” – Mark D Levine, Chairman, NYC Council health committee.
“I wholeheartedly support my fellow New Yorkers protesting structural racism & way unearned power gets levied on the backs of Black folks-literally. Proud of @nycHealthy not just talking the talk, but walking the walk. #RacismIsAPublicHealthCrisis“ – Oxiris Barbot, NYC Health Commissioner.
Taking a leaf out of their books, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio has told the COVID19 contact team to refrain from asking whether people attended BLM rallies.
Instead of wondering whether beta testing tens of thousands of people abandoning social distancing and screaming in close quarters might cause the spread of infection, it is better to suppress hard data for the sake of social justice.
Here is betting if a Trump rally was held in that de Blasio, Barbot and Levine would crank up the outrage volume knob to eleven.
Right on cue, Levine twisted that dial by tweeting,
“Glaring omission in guidelines CDC released today on the relative risk for public gatherings:…They don’t mention that *indoor* gatherings (like say a campaign rally in a Tulsa arena) are higher risk than *outdoor* gatherings...This flies in the face of accepted science.”
Effectively only gatherings of the left are OK.
We remind readers that in February that Barbot and Levine were the same individuals imploring New Yorkers had nothing to worry about with respect to coronavirus because the White House was just spreading misinformation. They openly supported people mingle during #LunarNewYear celebrations to defend against stigma and show outward support for the Chinese community.
Just to give an idea of even more hypocrisy espoused by these NY politicians, Levine wasted no time tweeting:
“21 states which started reopening earlier than NY now have rising cases.
Is NY next? It’s up to us to prevent this. By continuing to obsess about face masks, hand washing, social distancing etc. And by ensuring that contact tracing works here.
Don’t walk away from this fight.”
To retweeting days later in celebration that there was
“A massive turn out for the Black Trans Lives Matter protest in front of the Brooklyn Museum” (which had nothing to do with George Floyd or police brutality).
Who knew COVID-19 has the ability to distinguish between what social justice causes matter when it comes to infecting people?
At least Levine didn’t waste his breath on just supporting woke protests when he broadcast the message on the safest way to have group sex during the crisis.
He tweeted about the muscled, tattooed, leather-favoring NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Deputy Commissioner for Division of Disease Control, Dr. Demetre Daskalakis whose guidance included, “Masturbate together. Use physical distance and face coverings to reduce the risk.” and “Make it a little kinky. Be creative with sexual positions and physical barriers, like walls, that allow sexual contact while preventing close face to face contact.”
Just don’t forget to “wash sex toys with soap and warm water.” (p.3) and avoid “rimming” during lockdown where possible (p.2).
