De Blasio to ban all large gatherings in NYC except Black Lives Matter protests

Mayor Billy de Blasio said on CNN today that he was banning all large gatherings in the city over COVID-19, except for Black Lives Matter protests:

De Blasio claims Black Lives Matter protests are important because it’s about calling for ‘historic change’ so he’s not going to stop them, no matter whether people get sick or not.

Buck Sexton wrote “So these outdoor events that bring together the community and let people enjoy their lives are banned – but De Blasio thinks thousands of shrieking protestors screaming in each others faces for hours is awesome and we need more of it. Seems fair.”

Oh by the way, the ban goes through September 30th, according to ABC News:
