De Blasio Admits City Skipped Permit Process To Paint Black Lives Matter Murals

City officials ignored their own application process for public art projects to paint Black Lives Matter murals around the five boroughs, in order to mark an important moment in history, Mayor Bill de Blasio said as his administration faces claims of First Amendment violations for refusing to green-light other proposals.

“We haven’t said ‘no’ to people, we’ve said, ‘If you want to apply, you can apply, but there’s a process,’” de Blasio said during his City Hall press briefing Monday.

The pro-President Trump group Women for America First has sued City Hall for blocking a mural of their slogan “Engaging, Inspiring and Empowering Women to Make a Difference!” on a Manhattan roadway, while allowing multiple BLM paintings throughout the city.

  1. Typical illegal corruption by this Mayor. If me or you would of done the exact same thing, we would’ve been fined.

  2. I respect his opinion that the painting of BLM is different than any other message. But it is only an opinion. Any state official can give more rights to one group or movement over another and aver it’s importance. How short-sighted is he?

  3. But then anyone who paints black over it will be arrested. Curious if the bail reform laws will accord the guy freedom after booking or, as the double standard mayor would wish, that egregious crime doesn’t allow for the application of bail reform!

  4. Do not think these milk smurfs are simple. The wage of abomination is so keen that even a smart kid can get lapsed by the war against.

    What is a smurf backwards? Frums. I guess Hashem has a funny plan. They who smurf are not our friends. Smurf out of our existence Black Lives Matter. Gargamel is not your pancake dinner.
