Orthodox Jews in New York City have risen up to defy Mayor Bill de Blasio after he ordered the gates of a park where Jewish children play to be welded shut.

The mayor triggered outrage on Monday by having the gates of Borough Park, Brooklyn, the biggest park in the Jewish community, welded shut.

NYC authorities claimed they were preventing children in Jewish neighborhoods from playing because of fears of coronavirus.

However, the move from de Blasio came after he has been publically championing the crowded Black Lives Matter protests and transgender rallies in the city over recent weeks.

A group of Orthodox Jews responded to the mayor's selective actions by cutting the park gate locks off with bolt-cutters, footage shows.

People can be seen huddled by the entrance of the park and cheering once a lock was broken, opening it up to small children nearby, in videos shared on social media Monday.

De Blasio has continued cracking down on religious observance, and on religious Jews in particular — while supporting large, crowded, and often violent, leftist demonstrations in the city over the past several weeks.

The community has been eager to use the parks again, but the city has removed children from them.

As Breitbart reported earlier Monday, the city actually welded shut the gates to prevent families from gaining access to the parks.

De Blasio personally oversaw the breakup of a  Jewish funeral procession in April and criticized the community directly for violating social distancing guidelines.

He has been sued, along with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, for religious discrimination based on their differential enforcement of coronavirus restrictions during the past few weeks.
