Knights Party Press Release: May 8. 2020

On Wednesday May 6th the Washington Examiner reported, “Added Fuel To The Fire‘: Civil Rights Organization Demands To Know Why Bill De Blasio Singled Out ‘Jewish’ Community.’

A Jewish civil rights organization filed a Freedom of Information Act request to investigate why New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio singled out the Jewish community in a statement about social distancing.

The Lawfare Project, a civil rights group that focuses on issues related to the Jewish community and Israel, requested any documents related to de Blasio’s decision to single out Jewish people over social distancing violations on the same weekend that New Yorkers of all backgrounds gathered in close quarters to view the flyover of the Blue Angels.

De Blasio was hit with accusations of anti-Semitism because of a tweet he posted warning Jewish New Yorkers that they would be arrested or fined if they broke social distancing guidelines after the city’s police broke up a funeral gathering following the death of Chaim Mertz, a prominent rabbi.

The National Director of the Knights Party based in Harrison Arkansas, Thomas Robb said, “Why is it when non-white races get singled out for doing something wrong, immediately thereafter, a civil lawsuit is filed on their behalf. Recently I’ve seen alot of headlines saying how “White” American citizens are the ones out protesting the unconstitutional lockdown of America. I have yet to see a headline about White American’s filing any lawsuits over the racism committed against them. I don’t know, it must be a “White” thing.”
