Comrade Bill di Blasio, Commissar—er, Mayor–of New York City, continues to prove he is the most tone deaf politician extant, as Mary Chastain at Legal Insurrection reports:

On Tuesday night, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio oversaw the police breaking up a Hasidic funeral for a rabbi who died of the Wuhan coronavirus.

De Blasio lashed out at the Jewish community (but made sure to also say ‘all communities’ to probably try to save his butt) in a tweet, which has set off anger and condemnation from all fronts.

Some people had a problem that de Blasio went after the entire Jewish community including ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt and NYC Councilman Kalman Yeger:

Some made the glaringly obvious reference:

And some wag even made the inevitable “di Blasio as Hitler” video:  

Why not?  D/S/Cs accuse others of being Hitler all the time.  Others made the obvious point the NYPD hates di Blasio with a passion and are unlikely to arrest the Jews, or anyone else he orders them to arrest:

And:

Of course, di Blasio’s timing is impeccable:

But wait a minute, perhaps di Blasio is being reasonable, fair and consistent.  Perhaps he really does care about every individual life, even Jews?

Oh. But Comrade Bill wouldn’t have double standards, would he?

Oh.  But maybe…

What’s that you say?  The photos are of people crowding the streets to watch the Blue Angels and Thunderbirds salute medical workers?  And di Blasio didn’t threaten any of them with arrest?  Oh.  Well anyway, di Blasio apologized—sort of:

I regret if the way I said it in any way gave people a feeling of being treated the wrong way, that was not my intention,’ de Blasio said. ‘It was said with love, but it was tough love.

Yeah.  “Tough love.”  I’m sure that was at the forefront of di Blasio’s mind when he threatened the Jews with arrest.  I’m sure he wasn’t just angry those annoying Jews dared ignore his imperial edict for a mere funeral of a religious leader.  Let’s let Dave Rubin have the mostly final word:

One can’t feel too sorry for New Yorkers; they keep electing people like di Blasio.  I guess we really do get the politicians we deserve; they surely do in NYC.
