Some Democrats consider Michael Bloomberg the only “moderate” candidate that can beat Donald Trump. Even the DNC is bending the rules so that he can appear on the debate stage. But the billionaire’s presidential wishes might already be crashing, now that several more damning videos have hit the Internet.
Whoever convinced Michael Bloomberg to run for president must be kicking themselves right about now. Sure, at first glance, he seemed like the perfect candidate to run against Donald Trump. He, like the president, is a successful New York businessman. Bloomberg was mayor of New York and a one-time Republican. He could be a moderate candidate to counter Sanders’ far-left agenda.
But Bloomberg might not be able to win over Democrats across the country. Why? Oh, so many reasons. Last week, a video came out where Bloomberg said that cops need to “throw kids against the wall” in order to frisk them for drugs and weapons. He said cops need to target minority communities.
Now, more videos are surfacing, revealing Bloomberg to be a cold, liberal elitist who looks down on anyone that’s not a West Coast/East Coast, latte-sipping technocrat.
The latest in this string of oppo-dumps occurred over the weekend in a video featuring Bloomberg implying that farmers and factory workers are stupid…
“It’s a process. You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, add water, up comes the corn..”
Bloomberg went on to say that these people could set up “a guillotine someday” if they did not find dignity in the job they are given or fail to grasp the governing factors in the information economy. [Source: Daily Wire]
Yeah, you read that right. Bloomberg is saying farming is easy and any idiot can do it. He went on to insult blue collar workers who work in factories.
According to Bloomberg’s tiny brain, if you can train someone to do something, it must not be a difficult job.
Something tells me farming is much harder than he describes. Agriculture has developed over thousands of years. Modern farming requires advanced technology and techniques, not to mention knowledge of the land and years of experience.
I’d like to see how Bloomberg would fair out in the fields for a day.
It gets worse for the liberal candidate. Another video surfaced in 2011, where he was trashing black and Hispanic young men.
“Blacks and Latinos score terribly in school testing compared to whites and Asians. If you look at our jails, it’s predominantly minorities,” Bloomberg said, later adding that “virtually all” perpetrators and victims of crime were minorities. [Source: Daily Wire]
He goes on to say that black and Hispanic men don’t know how to find jobs and don’t know how to behave in the workplace.
Ouch. While Bloomberg is pointing to well-known statistics about crime and poverty, the comments aren’t great. He’s suggesting that most—if not all—black and Hispanic men commit crimes and don’t want honest work.
Those kinds of comments don’t go over well with Democrats. Especially from a white billionaire who is supposed to support their social justice view of the world. All that liberal voters (particularly minorities) will see is another elitist—maybe even a racist.
Even if Bloomberg meant well in these videos, you can’t ignore the sense of distain he has for people that aren’t like him. He’s dismissive of hard-working Americans from humble careers. He looks down on minorities, especially young black men, who come from the inner city. And he has embraced un-Constitutional tactics because he thinks that’s the only way to bring order to our communities.
This billionaire is nothing like Donald Trump, who actually cares about all Americans. He considers us family and works hard to put us first.
But will the media acknowledge Bloomberg’s views? Or will they try to ignore all this?
Something tells me, this will be hard to hide.
