New Yorkers are not cutting Mayor Bill de Blasio any slack in his legislative push to enforce radical and unconstitutional vaccine mandates in the Empire State.
On Saturday, pro-America protesters gathered in front of de Blasio’s Brooklyn home, chanting “Hey Hey, Ho Ho, De Blasio has got to go!”
The demonstrators, who carried signs that included phrases like, “Hold the Line” and “We the People,” were pushing back against de Blasio’s dogged insistence that all New York city employees, including the New York Police Department (NYPD), be vaccinated against the coronavirus.
Bill de Blasio, who has been mayor of New York City since 2014, is also a Democrat and staunch proponent of pushing vaccinate mandates and strict coronavirus medical regulations in the Big Apple.
Unfortunately for de Blasio, a New York Supreme Court Judge suspended the vaccine mandates for city employees in the Manhattan court system last week, pumping the brakes on de Blasio’s plan to force municipal employees into getting the shot.
In October, NYC’s vaccine mandate stipulated that all municipal workers in the city would have to receive at least one dose of the Covid shot by Oct. 29. Those who chose to remain unvaccinated would be placed on unpaid leave. The mandate prompted citywide protests and demonstrations, including a massive freedom march on Oct. 25 that shut down traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge.
According to a previous report from RSBN, last week de Blasio ordered all private sector employees to receive the coronavirus vaccine by Dec. 27, in addition to mandating the vaccine for children ages 5-11 who want to enter any indoor areas. Additionally, the New York Post reported that de Blasio issued a mask advisory in light of fears surrounding the Omicron variant of the coronavirus, stating that, “we’re telling you to get those masks back on now.”
Mayor Bill de Blasio’s term as New York mayor is set to end on Jan. 1, 2022, when he will be replaced by Mayor-elect Eric Adams, a retired police officer and Democrat. It remains to be seen if Adams will be more lenient regarding coronavirus restrictions, or if he will follow in the footsteps of his predecessor and ignore the demands of New York City employees.
