Thank you to our friend Dana Loesch for pointing this out. It’s always amusing when you catch liberals talking about guns when they don’t think they’re being recorded (see EXPOSED: Hidden Camera Reveals Dem Delegates Want To Ban ALL Guns and LEAKED HILLARY AUDIO: ‘Supreme Court is Wrong on Second Amendment’). That’s pretty much all the context you need to enjoy this little nugget.
Enter Mike Bloomberg. But while you’re listening, imagine if Donald Trump said something like this…
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.
“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.”
At one point, the former mayor brought up New York City’s stop-and-frisk practices, which gained national attention in 2011. Bloomberg said that during his last year in office, a minister at a Baptist church in Harlem invited him to speak.
“While I’m sitting there waiting for him to introduce me, he said to his congregation, ‘You know, if every one of you stopped and frisked your kid before they went out at night, the mayor wouldn’t have to do it,’” Bloomberg said. “And so I knew I was going to be okay with that audience.”
Cities need to get guns out of “THIS GROUP’S hands…”
Okay, so Michael Bloomberg essentially said he wants to disarm minorities, because they’re the problem groups. I’m boiling the quotations down to their most basic essences.
Again, imagine if any Republican had uttered any of those words in that order. You would have to measure the outrage in kilometers. HuffPo would run it on their front page in ALL CAPS. CNN would devour the story like Lena Dunham finishes a cake. Celebrity twits would tweet inane thoughts. You’d get so sick of the coverage, you might disavow whatever idiot said those idiotic words.
Of course a Republican wouldn’t have said “Let’s disarm a certain race, age, or gender of people” at all. Republicans, on the whole, are about everyone having the means to defend themselves. But holier than thou leftists like Bloomers here, thinks the government needs to intervene and save people from themselves. Especially those minority whipper snappers.
Bloomers is a liberal though, so it’s ok. He can say whatever he wants, get away with it, and be heralded a hero by the same people he insults. Makes you crazy.
Bloomers (I’m totally stoked about this new nickname), like many anti-gun leftists, hasn’t the faintest idea what he’s talking about with it comes to the sticks of doom. Par for the course. Watch these other dunderheads talk about “common sense” gun control.
