When I saw tweet #2 going viral I couldn’t believe my eyes. Seeing them in order provides the context. But tweets fly around in isolation. Obvious. The Mayor of NYC has to do a lot better. Don’t write things that make you sound like a neo-nazi. Use your brain before hitting send.

2/ When you see the context it looks different. If you set aside calling out “the Jewish community” for one group of Jews holding a funeral the point he’s upset about is more clear and not unreasonable. But again, think. WTF? Don’t say things that make you sound like a nazi.

Usually I hear you. But as someone who grew up in the Orthodox Jewish community, this didn't sound bad to me at all. Our community has in fact been notably delinquent in ignoring these orders, and have suffered as a result. Blas is right in telling us to get our shit together.

I have my own beefs with the orthodox community in the city. They absolutely shouldn’t be holding these funerals. That is totally beside the point. They are not the Jewish community. A mayor needs to use his words right.

He singled out the group who keeps violating the stay home order after personally witnessing them having a funeral, again

The Blue Angels flyover in NY City today was beautiful, but I didn't see any outrage over the lack of social distancing. That reaction is reserved for Jewish weddings & funerals. Two wrongs don't make a right, but only one wrong makes the news and the condemnation of politicians.
