What? NYC Mayor De Blasio Says Black Lives Matter Street Art “Transcends All Normal Realities”
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio defended his double standard for Black Lives Matter graffiti and street art in the city on a Monday press conference, arguing that street art that celebrated the movement didn’t need to go to the normal application and permit process because it “transcends all normal realities.”
De Blasio’s administration had ignored the normal application process through the New York City Department of Transportation before painting a giant “Black Lives Matter” slogan on the street in front of Trump Tower.
De Blasio has forced conservative groups such as America First Women to abide by the standard permit and application process, nakedly holding a double standard in favor of Black Lives Matter.
“We haven’t said no to people. We have said, if you want to apply, you can apply, but there’s a process. Look, the fact is that what I decided to do with the Black Lives Matter murals, and this came out of a meeting…with community leaders and activists who said this would be such an important thing for this city to declare, officially, that is something that, again, transcends all normal realities. Because we are in a moment in history where this had to be said and done. That’s a decision I made. But the normal process continues for anyone who wants to apply.”

Such a description of Black Lives Matter street art makes the street riot movement sound more like a religion than a protest and march movement.
