Democrats who once feared COVID-19 are encouraging Black Lives Matter protests.
As of June 4, more than 109,000 people in the US are dead from COVID-19.
George Floyd, the man whose death sparked the protests, had asymptomatic coronavirus.
President Donald Trump has called for Dem leaders to get their cities under control and stop the rioting.
(NewsReady.com) – For weeks, Democratic governors and mayors have said Americans need to stay home. If residents in their cities wanted to get a haircut, they were ridiculed by angry Liberals. Business owners were even jailed for simply trying to provide for their families.
Now, suddenly, as protesters gather in massive crowds to demand police reform, none of that matters.
States like Pennsylvania, New York, and Michigan had some of the strictest COVID-19 lockdowns in the country. Mayors in the biggest cities spent weeks punishing residents for having the audacity to live their lives. When the protests from patriots who wanted to end the stay-at-home orders and reopen businesses took place, the Left lost their collective minds. They were sure the virus was going to spread like wildfire.
In NYC, Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) made anti-Semitic remarks when Jewish mourners attended the funeral of a rabbi, he tweeted:
My message to the Jewish community, and all communities, is this simple: the time for warnings has passed. I have instructed the NYPD to proceed immediately to summons or even arrest those who gather in large groups. This is about stopping this disease and saving lives. Period.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) said reopen protesters were putting his health and everyone’s children at risk. Fines were doled out to people who violated state orders and tried to welcome customers back to their businesses.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D) once told business owners he’d have their utilities shut off if they tried to reopen. Basically, COVID-19 was really scary a couple of weeks ago when Conservatives were protesting to preserve their constitutional rights. So, it still is, right?
Nope. Not so much.
Change of Heart
All of the leaders discussed above are now saying they respect Black Lives Matter protesters’ ability to express their opinions. Groups with thousands of people are no big deal and aren’t talking about the coronavirus much. Mayor de Blasio even said he’s proud of his daughter who was arrested at one of the riots in the city.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio confirms reports that his daughter, Chiara de Blasio, was arrested at a protest: "I'm proud of her that she cares so much, and she was willing to go out there and do something about it." https://t.co/YbloXtjoxj pic.twitter.com/bBCBLjn1q5

Suddenly, COVID-19 is gone (it’s not) and no longer contagious (it is)! This same scenario is playing out across the country in states and cities run by Democratic leaders. The hypocrisy would be astounding if it weren’t so utterly predictable.
Don’t forget though, in two weeks when they start showing symptoms, it’ll be President Donald Trump’s fault.
