NYC Mayor de Blasio fines synagogue $15K for massive secret wedding, says house of worship will be closed down if there’s ‘any further illegal activity’

Remember the super-secret Jewish wedding in New York City that saw an estimated 7,000 maskless attendees standing shoulder to shoulder singing and dancing?

You know, the one that was pulled off earlier this month by organizers who operated by word of mouth only.

The one that really upset Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Well, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio declared Monday night that City Hall is fining the synagogue for holding the event that violated state- and city-issued mask requirements and proscriptions on large gatherings, the New York Post reported.

Not only will the house of worship receive a fine, it also faces being forceably closed down if there are any further violations on the premises.

What happened? Over the weekend, the Post reported on the secretly held Brooklyn wedding that occurred Nov. 8.

According to the Post, organizers surreptitiously pulled off the wedding that violated COVID-19 directives from the state and the city prohibiting such gatherings during the pandemic by putting nothing on paper and sending no invitations.

Thousands of guests “crammed shoulder to shoulder” into the Yetev Lev temple in Williamsburg, which has a capacity of 7,000 people, for the event, “stomping, dancing and singing at the top of their lungs without a mask in sight,” the Post said.

After the Post’s expose, Gov. Cuomo blasted the event as “illegal” and “disrespectful” and demanded an investigation.

City Hall told the Post that the city was investigating the wedding.

Now, we have the fallout De Blasio announced that the city will fine the synagogue $15,000.

“There appeared to be a real effort to conceal it, which is absolutely unacceptable,” de Blasio told NY1, the Post reported. “There will be a summons for $15,000 immediately for that site and there could be additional consequences quite soon as well.”

A reporter pressed Hizzoner on the effectiveness of the city’s enforcement efforts and the announced fine, the paper said.

De Blasio shot back that his administration’s ability to find flouters of COVID-19 mandates has “been very, very consistent,” but he added a caveat: “It’s a big city with more than 8 million people. It’s a huge geography to cover.”

He added that he felt the punishment the synagogue faces will definitely send a message — because it’s more than just a $15,000 fine. The house of worship also has received a cease and desist order, the mayor said.

That means that any violation will get the entire synagogue shuttered.

“But I think the cease and desist order is crucial here,” he said, according to the Post. “From this point on, if there’s any further illegal activity in that building, the building will be closed down. I think that’s a pretty clear deterrent.”

A fucking idiot who had zero understanding what freedom of religion means.

All they had to say was that it was a George Floyd rally, everything would have been fine.

Controlled antisemitism. DeBlasio is what? Catholic?

If this man were actually targeting the Jewish people not only would he be destroyed in the media, but likely already in court with plenty of lawyers looking to take a piece of him. No, this man will be reelected by the very same people he is supposedly targeting. Mark my words. This is as contrived as anything else we have seen.

Bill de Blasio was born Warren Wilhelm Jr. on May 8, 1961.

I tend to agree that this is the result of collusion wherein it will be OK now to fuck with every other religious institution.

the city will fine the synagogue $15,000

Many synagogues received government Payroll Protection Program (PPP) "loans" -- never to be paid back -- an us-to-them wealth transfer program occasioned and justified by the manufactured coronavirus scamdemic.

Some synagogues' "loans" were hundreds of thousands of dollars -- easily enough to pay a $15,000 fine and still have money left over for all the wonderful altruism they wreak on the goyim.

Right. The Joos were just a start. Now the others will are going to see the exact same thing coming at them.

It is just that the Joos received some government largesse that will help ease the pain of the "fines". :-/
