911 NYC Tribute Canceled Over COVID Concerns Despite De Blasio Allowing BLM Mural Without a Permit

One rule for them…

The iconic memorial display in NYC that features two beams of light to honor the victims of 9/11 has been canceled over coronavirus concerns just weeks after Mayor Bill de Blasio allowed a Black Lives Matter mural to be painted outside Trump Tower.

The “Tribute in Light beam won’t shine for the first time in 18 years because health risks posed to the large crew required to oversee it “were far too great,” according to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum.

The same concerns were completely absent when a similarly large crew was on hand to paint the giant Black Lives Matter mural, a process which De Blasio himself took part in for a photo-op.

The mural was also painted without permission from the city, with de Blasio allowing activists to skip the permit process.

As we previously highlighted, at a time when NYC is experiencing soaring shootings and violent crimes (partly thanks to de Blasio emptying the prisons), the BLM mural also required 27 cops working in shifts to protect it.

The 9/11 Memorial and Museum also scrapped the in-person reading of 9/11 victims’ names at the annual Ground Zero ceremony over coronavirus concerns.

Similar concerns were not expressed when tens of thousands of Black Lives Matter protesters repeatedly marched through New York City in close proximity.

Twitter respondents expressed their disgust at the double standard.

“This is a slap in the face to America,” said one.

“No permit but yet arrest people for “vandalizing” what they vandalized in the first place!” added another.

“Remember you can’t get corona at a #BLM event but you can at a light show,” said another.

“Could we just call it the George Floyd Lightshow or something? There’s gotta be a way around this,” joked another.

Police in Philadelphia discovered a van packed with explosives and other “suspicious equipment” as a third night of rioting and looting gripped the city on Wednesday.

ABC 6 reported that “police recovered propane tanks, torches and possible dynamite sticks from the van.”

The report adds that “The bomb squad is on the scene at this hour.”

The development comes after President Trump claimed police were told to “stand back” and not stop looting and rioting.

“People are breaking into stores and walking out with washing machines and walking out with all sorts of things and it shouldn’t be allowed,” Trump noted, adding “The police were told to stand back, and maybe that’s not so but that’s what I was told upon very good authority.”

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney blasted the crime wave Wednesday, noting that “The looting that has taken place is distressing.”

“It is clear that many of these folks are taking advantage of the situation, harming our businesses and communities, and doing a great disservice to those who want to protest the death of Walter Wallace, Jr.,” Kenney added.

“We cannot allow others to destroy property. I have requested the assistance of the PA National Guard. Their role will be to safeguard property, prevent looting, and provide operational and logistical assistance to @PhillyPolice and other departments,” Kenny also announced.

The mayor has also put a city-wide curfew in place:

Chick-fil-A Looted Despite CEO Shining Boots For BLM

Capitulation didn’t work.

People are noting the irony of a Chick-fil-A in Philadelphia being looted by rioters just months after the company’s CEO Dan Cathy shined a black rapper’s shoes in a pro-Black Lives Matter PR stunt.

BLM supporters and other criminal opportunists reacted to the police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr., who was killed after advancing towards officers with a knife, by staging violent unrest, attacking police and looting stores.

After targeting a local Walmart and Footlocker, looters turned their attention to Chick-fil-A, smashing into and damaging a branch of the food chain.

According to reporter Julio Rosas, who has covered numerous BLM riots, he hasn’t “seen anything like this on this scale since Minneapolis back in May.”

30 officers were injured on the first night of the riots, with one female sergeant being run over by a truck driven by BLM rioters.

The sight of criminals taking advantage of a Black Lives Matter demonstration to smash up Chick-fil-A is deliciously ironic given the bizarre behavior of the company’s CEO back in June.

During a discussion about “repentance and shame” at Passion City Church in Atlanta, Georgia, Dan Cathy got up to shine the shoes of a black rapper called Lecrae while apologizing profusely.

“I invite folks to just, to put some words to action here,” Cathy said as he shined Lecrae’s shoes. “And if we need to find somebody that needs to have their shoe shined, we need to just go right on over, and shine their shoes.”

Numerous people reacted by commenting how awkward the scene looked and how it was made all the more bizarre by the fact that around a dozen Chick-fil-A stores were vandalized during the George Floyd & Rayshard Brooks protests.

Video: Female Cop Run Over by BLM Mob in Philadelphia

Another night of looting and rioting.

Published

on

Video Screenshot

A video out of Philadelphia shows a female police officer being run over by a truck driven by BLM rioters as another night of chaos unfolded.

The rioters hit the streets after the police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr. in an incident being described as yet another unprovoked murder of a black man.

In reality, footage of the incident shows Wallace Jr. ignoring numerous warnings from police officers to drop the weapon as he advances on them before being shot.

However, as we have seen multiple times over the past 5 months, Black Lives Matter agitators don’t let the facts get in the way of yet another chance to riot.

A female sergeant suffered a broken leg as she was struck by a speeding vehicle.

Other videos show BLM criminals looting a clothing store.

Another clip shows a police car on fire.

Cops were chased down the street by the mob, who threw projectiles at officers who weren’t wearing full protective riot gear.

“Get em, yeah! That’s what I like!” shouts the man filming the scene.

Another video shows riot cops being pelted with trash cans and other objects.

A total of 30 police officers were injured during the clashes.
