De Blasio Tells New Yorkers They’ll Be ‘Pulled Out of The Water’ if They Try Going to The Beach

This is why so many Americans have been crying “tyranny” as of late.

Last week, a harrowing tale of authoritarianism unfolded in The Aloha State, as a New York City man was arrested after traveling to the tropical tourist destination and posted several photos to social media to flaunt his virus vacation.

The news sparked a fury online, where social media users were largely enraged at the idea that the government would do such a thing, with many internet users expressing their disbelief and disgust at the news.

Now, several thousand miles away in New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio is warning citizens that similarly stern results would await them should they too decide it was time to take a dip.

“Anyone tries to get in the water they’ll be taken right out of the water,” the mayor warned reporters on Monday morning, as state beaches in New York, Delaware, Connecticut and New Jersey reopen.

NY Governor Cuomo had said local officials had the option to keep beaches closed amid COVID-19 fears, however.

De Blasio explained officials would not be putting up police barriers on NYC beaches just yet to give people a chance to comply with the rules after a weekend of people flouting the guidelines.

He reiterated that “no swimming, no lifeguards, no parties, no BBQs” and no sports were allowed on the sand, where social distancing rules would still apply.

Video footage of similar arrests have been making the rounds as well, further enraging the parts of the American population who believe that this is a massive bit of government overreach.

Should de Blasio’s enforcers actually drag New Yorkers out of the water, you can bet that ever-angrier citizens will soon be taking a stand.
