The iconic memorial display in NYC that features two beams of light to honor the victims of 9/11 has been canceled over coronavirus concerns just weeks after Mayor Bill de Blasio allowed a Black Lives Matter mural to be painted outside Trump Tower.
The “Tribute in Light beam won’t shine this year because health risks posed to the large crew required to oversee it “were far too great,” according to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum.
The same concerns were completely absent when a similarly large crew was on hand to paint the giant Black Lives Matter mural, a process which De Blasio himself took part in for a photo-op.
The mural was also painted without permission from the city, with de Blasio allowing activists to skip the permit process.
As we previously highlighted, at a time when NYC is experiencing soaring shootings and violent crimes (partly thanks to de Blasio emptying the prisons), the BLM mural also required 27 cops working in shifts to protect it.
