    Bloomberg A Racist?

    Or just rational?. Of course the woke idiots will jump on it and his political rivals.

    The edited, minute-long clip from a speech Bloomberg gave to the Aspen Institute in 2015 echoed his other previous defenses of “stop and frisk,” an unconstitutional policing tactic that disproportionately targeted Black and brown people — a policy for which he is widely credited with being the architect and chief enforcer during his three terms leading New York City. On the clip, which undoubtedly was uploaded and circulated online by some of Bloomberg’s political rivals, features Bloomberg espousing some damningly racist rhetoric about how he identifies criminals.

    Ninety-five percent of murders — murderers and murder victims fit one M.O. You can just take a description, Xerox it, and pass it out to all the cops,” Bloomberg can be heard saying in his unmistakable and signature nasal tone. “They are male, minorities, 16-25. That’s true in New York, that’s true in virtually every city (inaudible). And that’s where the real crime is. You’ve got to get the guns out of the hands of people that are getting killed.

    The main problem I have with Bloomberg, however, is his naked attempt to buy the presidency.

    The woke twitter bots are really going after him on this. A perfectly rational policy...

    Compared to the standard half-naked attempts to buy it?
    Trump is basically "Bruce Wayne pretending to be a foppish retarded billionaire" tier genius, in case nerds need a simpler metaphor.

    It's still being bought, just by multiple buyers, and Bloomberg is just taking the current system to its logical conclusion.

    Of interest was Bloomberg maintaining that not enough minorities were stopped by stop and frisk based on a demographic analysis of the relevant crime areas. I believe the program was simply unconstitutional, FTR.

    Also of interest is the video floating around where Bloomberg expressly defended regressive taxes as an attempt to correct behavior: https://www.washingtontimes.com/news...ou-want-pande/

    In the case of tobacco, I'm actually not convinced he's wrong, but his attempt to explain it would come across flat to most of the nation should he win the nomination.

    This is what gets lost in the whole fake "was it racist or not" issue of it.
