NYC Politician Blames Potential Spike In COVID Cases On ‘Racism’, Not Protestors

Chair of the New York City Council health committee Mark Levine tweeted Wednesday that ‘racism’ would be to blame for a potential spike in cases of the novel coronavirus in the weeks following massive protests and riots in reaction to the tragic death of George Floyd.

“Let’s be clear about something: if there’s a spike in coronavirus cases in the next two weeks, don’t blame the protestors. Blame racism,” he wrote.

Levine continued, “And let’s remember that the police are increasing covid risk by: using tear gas, herding demonstrators into tight spaces, putting people in crowded jails.”

The streets of New York have seen thousands of people in recent days, not keeping distance, and, some, not wearing masks. This comes after months of lockdown as city officials worked to mitigate the spread of the virus in the country’s epicenter. The city estimates that nearly 200,000 people have been diagnosed with the coronavirus and that nearly 20,000 have died.

Alec Baldwin Lowest of the Low; Blames Victim For Shooting ‘Everything is at her Direction’

Published

Alec Baldwin

“Just when you think Alec Baldwin can’t go any lower, he blames Halyna Hutchins, the woman he shot to death, for getting shot to death” writes the New York Post. Naturally, Baldwin gifted his first interview since the tragic death of Hutchins to his Hampton’s buddy and leftwing media host George Stephanopoulos.

“Everything is at her direction,” Baldwin told George Stephanopoulos during the hourlong interview that aired Thursday night on ABC. Ultimately the entire one hour can be summed up by Baldwin’s twelve words: “Someone is responsible for what happened, and I know it’s not me.”

For any viewers looking for anything particularly meaningful from Baldwin or for him to answer tough questions, a sit-down with his liberal elite buddy was not the place to get it. “I’m holding the gun where she told me to hold it,” Baldwin said, “which ended up right below her armpit. Which is what I was told — I don’t know.”

He carried on, “I would never point a gun at anyone, and pull the trigger at them. Never.” Oddly he had just finished describing how he was pointing the gun at Hutchins.
Agent Bobby Chacon, a retired FBI agent who works as a writer and on-set consultant for Hollywood stated “The bullet striking and killing that woman came out of the barrel of the gun pointed directly at her…Bullets don’t curve. He isn’t in ‘The Matrix.’ The trigger would still have to be pulled.”

The New York Post reports:

“I’m not aware of any gun firing itself,” says Steve Wolf, a Hollywood firearms and special-effects expert since 1994. “I’ve never seen a gun self-discharge. A single-action revolver like this” — the Colt that Baldwin fired — “can be discharged very easily, with minimal input required … The trigger still must have been pressed.”
Wolf is also outraged by a larger concern. “It’s really important to discredit anyone who claims that guns fire themselves,” he says. “If this becomes an acceptable defense, there goes any accountability when it comes to shooting people. We can’t have this kind of ‘guns shoot themselves’ thing. They don’t.”
