Tensions are mounting in a Hasidic Jewish neighborhood in Brooklyn due to NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio sending the NYPD to enforce his zero tolerance policy on a Hasidic Jewish neighborhood in Brooklyn.

Two days after de Blasio lambasted Jewish leaders for defying his social distancing orders by holding a massive funeral for a rabbi who died of coronavirus in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn.

De Blasio was incensed that hundreds of Orthodox Jews gathered in the streets near the intersection of Rutledge Street and Bedford Avenue to pay their respects for the rabbi, identified by The Yeshiva World as Chaim Mertz.

De Blasio wrote on Twitter:

“Something absolutely unacceptable happened in Williamsburg tonite: a large funeral gathering in the middle of this pandemic,” 

“When I heard, I went there myself to ensure the crowd was dispersed. And what I saw WILL NOT be tolerated so long as we are fighting the Coronavirus,”

As we reported earlier this week, de Blasio’s antisemitic hypocrisy knows no bounds.

De Blasio Sends In The NYPD To Enforce His Antisemitism

Video clips obtained by The New York Post and posted online show a heavy police presence amid a chaotic scene in a Hasidic Jewish neighborhood in Brooklyn on Thursday afternoon.

In one clip, horns honk, people shout and sirens wail as a cop orders bystanders, “Back up! Back up!” in front of the Judaica Corner store in Borough Park.

“This is getting violent over here. They just arrested somebody,” a narrator says.

All the chaos that has been unfolding in Brooklyn is directly linked to de Blasio’s “zero tolerance” threat toward New York’s Jewish community regarding violations of social distance rules.

Another clip, recorded from inside a vehicle and posted on Twitter, shows police tape stretched across a street and a cop ordering the driver, “Keep going straight! Keep going straight!”
