De Blasio Denies 'Blue Lives Matter' Mural, Says 'Black Lives Matter' Transcends Politics

For whatever reason, “Black Lives Matter” has become widely accepted by the masses despite largely negative and racist rhetoric. The three words are everywhere on the baseball diamond, and they are even painted on the courts in Orlando for the NBA bubble situation – where the top 22 teams will finish out the remainder of the season.

Enter NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, via New York Post:

Mayor Bill de Blasio said Thursday that the Black Lives Matter movement “transcends any notion of politics,” as he defended allowing the words to be painted on streets across the city while not approving similar mural requests from groups like the pro-cop Blue Lives Matter.

“This is about something much bigger than any one group,” de Blasio said during his daily City Hall press briefing in response to a reporter’s question about whether he would green-light mural requests from groups like Blue Lives Matter and Women for America First.

“This is about righting a wrong and moving forward. So I think that’s the right approach,” Hizzoner said as he explained why he had “Black Lives Matter” painted in massive yellow letters on city streets, taking part in several of the painting processes.

Last month, de Blasio announced that the city would paint the BLM murals in each borough amid the massive protests in the Big Apple, and around the country, in response to the May 25 police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.


Imagine if Bill’s tweets below targeted Muslims.

He’d probably be forced to step down.
