NYC Mayor De Blasio Bans All Large Gatherings In City – Except For Black Lives Matter Protests

What do you call it when one group has more rights than another?

You call it discrimination and bigotry, and it’s happening right now in New York City.

Mayor Bill de Blasio recently banned all large gatherings in the city, except for Black Lives Matter protests. They get special rights for some reason.

The New York Post reports:

NYC Black Lives Matter marches can continue despite large-event ban, de Blasio says

Mayor Bill de Blasio is permitting Black Lives Matter protesters to continue marching through city streets while the city is canceling all large events through September.

Speaking on CNN Thursday night, de Blasio said the demonstrators’ calls for social justice were too important to stop after more than a month of demonstrations have not led to an outbreak of coronavirus cases.

“This is a historic moment of change. We have to respect that but also say to people the kinds of gatherings we’re used to, the parades, the fairs — we just can’t have that while we’re focusing on health right now,” de Blasio told host Wolf Blitzer.

The exception came as New York’s rate of infections has remained consistent through the civil unrest over the Minneapolis police killing of George Floyd.
