People in New York put up with their houses of worship being closed for months. Now Governor Andrew Cuomo is threatening to shut them down again.
Cuomo is blaming churches and synagogues for the spread of the virus.
Has he ever blamed rioters and protesters for the same?

‘Religious Institutions Have Been A Problem’: Andrew Cuomo Threatens To Shut Down Churches, Synagogues
Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo threatened Monday to close down religious institutions, specifically Jewish synagogues, if they do not follow his coronavirus restrictions.
“We know religious institutions have been a problem,” Cuomo said at a Monday press conference. “We know mass gatherings are the super spreader events. We know there have been mass gatherings going on in concert with religious institutions in these communities for weeks. For weeks.”
“I don’t mean little violations,” he continued. “I’m talking about, you’re only supposed to have 50 outdoors, they had 1,000.”

The worst part of this is that Cuomo is basing his position on a photo, but it’s a photo from 2007.
