Yesterday, a small group of right-wing zionists and pro-Trump Jews gathered at the New York Public Library to protest coronavirus restrictions. Local thug and demagogue Heshy Tischler showed up to claim no one is dying of coronavirus. He is a menace and a danger. A thread.
Here is info on the event and sponsors. It is not surprising, but still alarming, to see these various bad faith actors spreading false claims of antisemitism and claiming that coronavirus is a hoax. I have more photos and videos of the event, and my DMs are open.
For the larger context of why a group of Orthodox Jews are pro-Trump and pro-coronavirus, check out this article.
Heshy was arrested earlier this week after instigating multiple violent mobs in NYC. Any groups or individuals that align with or support him need to be held responsible for his actions. More here
I’m not sure how far Heshy can claim when his main message is that coronavirus is a hoax. His mask-burning bonfires may be somewhat short-lived (pun intended), but it’s good to be wary of this kind of violent populist demagoguery.
If you’re curious about the level of discourse he brings, in 28 seconds he managed to call me mentally challenged, ugly, and a liar. (And I’m certainly not mentally challenged or a liar.)
