A married couple who were arrested in Brooklyn after they attacked a group of Hasidic Jews in a bid to rip off their coronavirus protection masks reportedly cited New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio as justification during the assault.
The attack occurred on Sunday night in the Williamsburg section of the borough. Paulo Pinho, 35, and wife, Clelia Pinho, 46, jumped out of their vehicle at Bedford Ave. and Ross St. where they confronted the three male victims, police said.
You Jews are getting us all sick, the couple yelled at a trio of men, according to police sources quoted by the New York Daily News on Monday, before adding: The mayor says you Jews are the reason were getting sick.
New York Mayor de Blasio sparked anger among Jewish leaders at the end of April for singling outthe Jewish community in a tweet condemning the alleged violation of coronavirus distancing restrictions at the public funeral of the late Rabbi Chaim Mertz.
Jonathan Greenblatt head of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) responded to the mayor by telling him that generalizing against the whole population is outrageous especially when so many are scapegoating Jews.
The Pinho couple combined their verbal abuse with a physical assault against the three men, with Clelia Pinho falling down and breaking her arm as she attempted to rip off their masks. The couple were held at the scene by members of the Shomrim communal security agency until police arrived to take them into custody.
While Clelia Pinho has no prior record, her husband Paulo has been arrested four times in the past. Most recently, he was detained in May 2019 after he brandished a screwdriver at a 61-year-old man before punching him in the face in a dispute over a parking spot.
Mayor de Blasio meanwhile strongly denounced Sundays attack, saying that the Pinhos would likely face hate crimes charges.
Whether it is this horrible antisemitic act that we saw or the horrible anti-Asian acts we saw in previous weeks, none of these acts of bias or discrimination are acceptable in New York City, de Blasio declared on Monday.
They mis-spelled “Pinhead”
Karma is a beyotch, eh, Clelia??
I hate de blasio, believe me I live here.
But these people had HATE way before de blasio said anything.
It’s just an excuse to attack Jews.
Maybe the Jewish vote against a dem in the next mayoral election will skyrocket.
de blasio had given the Hasidim community a lot of things they were asking for in the past bunch of years so they were not voting that heavily against him.
I think that will stop now
The ONLY chance of having an R NYC mayor again is for Hasidim and Staten Island, brookyn and Queens Italians to vote Overwhelmingly against him.
Trump got 60 percent on staten island. That includes obama’s sons and daughters voting here too.
But An extra million votes by Jews and Italians could MAYBE get an R elected.
i dunno anymore
La Mujer tal vez un poco boracho!
(The “Lady” may have been a little drunk)
This is the result of the ANTI anti-vaccine religious. You see it all the time in chat groups or on FB and Twitter.
Ah, but what does the Mayor of Atlanta think about it?
Sounds like someone needs some more Vitamin D in her diet.
Hate crime. Automatic 5 years in the pen.
NEVER, EVER, FORGET that the DIMocRATS Party is and always as been the political party of
Only their targets for UNREASONING HATE are different in 2020.= The DIMs are the SAME OLD,SAME OLD, BIGOTS.
(As an AMER-INDIAN of mixed-blood, I cannot imagine why any “person of color” would ever even consider being a DIMocRAT.-—— No matter what they claim, they will NEVER see any “person of color” and/or of a minority religion as anything but UNEQUAL & INFERIOR to white DIMs.)
I guess ol' Clelia has got no sense of humerus, eh?
Your Staten Island gal Nicole is the only possibility for a successful GOP candidate.
Karma is a Hindu concept. But I think it works here.
She needs a lot more recognition. Get her name out there
Did I spell that right? Wow what a ghetto name.
The mayor called out the Jewish Community, he shouldn't be surprised supporters act on it.
