Many conservatives claim if any other person had said such a racist thing, the media would be all over it, but because it’s Bloomberg, it’s ignored.
Former New York Mayor, life-long democrat, and potential 2020 presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg basically told a crowd of eager worshipers at the Aspen Institute recently that minorities can’t be trusted with guns, ,that’s why they and everyone should be disarmed.
If any other person had even hinted at such a sentiment, the mainstream media would be in the process of crucifying him, and destroying his career.
The Aspen Times reported, “Bloomberg claimed that 95 percent of murders fall into a specific category: male, minority and between the ages of 15 and 25. Cities need to get guns out of this group’s hands and keep them alive, he said.”
In other words, he claimed, these poor black and Hispanic men are too stupid to know what guns are for, and they shouldn’t be allowed to have them for their own ‘safety.’
“These kids think they’re going to get killed anyway because all their friends are getting killed,” Bloomberg said. “They just don’t have any long-term focus or anything. It’s a joke to have a gun. It’s a joke to pull a trigger.”
Not only is this statement blatantly racist, it’s flat out wrong.
“Mayor Bloomberg’s statement that black males should not be allowed to have guns echoes similar sentiments made by southern white supremacists in the 19th century,” Tom King, the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association president, said in a statement.
“So called ‘Black Codes’ were enacted by various southern states to discriminate against black Americans and maintain the system of white supremacy that made slavery possible. These included restrictions on firearms possession.”
“If a politician said this about anything other than guns, the mainstream media would be all over them,” Mr. King argued. “Michael Bloomberg isn’t just any politician, he is the leading voice for gun control in America. He should be held accountable for this slander.”
He should be, but many people agree that he won’t. For liberals, Bloomberg’s money and political clout mean that he walks on water, and no major outlet even hinted at this gross, despicable claim.
Many people agree that liberals like to feel superior to others, and their ‘care’ for the poor minorities is just a way to bolster their inflated opinion of themselves.
Bloomberg has shown that his ultimate goal is the complete disarmament of the American people. He obviously knows that an unarmed population is slaves.
Such a desire, while offensive to anyone with the ability to think logically, makes liberals gush with ignorant, unholy glee.
