Michael Bloomberg spoke of two men who died of opioid overdoses in mocking terms, stating the men were from a “bad family.”
The remarks were made at the Bermuda Executive Forum, an event for connected business executives in March of 2019.
Bloomberg was speaking about the nationwide opioid crisis, bringing up a story from the New York Daily News. Joseph and Carlos Andrade, father and son, both died of heroin overdoses after a party in Brooklyn.
Watch his remarks here:
“Daily News had a picture on the front page of a father and a son — they both OD’d at the same party. I mean, it’s not a good family — craziness.”
Bloomberg’s dismissive tone was bad enough. But some among the financial class present at the event to hear Bloomberg speak openly laughed at the former New York mayor’s description of the men as being from a “bad family.”
Hundreds of thousands of Americans of all geographic and ethnic varieties have lost their lives in the ongoing opioid crisis. They deserve compassion, not for an authoritarian oligarch to cast off their deaths as the consequence of them being from “bad families.”
As Bloomberg’s dismal record and history of outright insults to populations of Americans ranging from farmers to machinists is revealed, it’s becoming increasingly difficult for the megabillionaire Democratic candidate to deny that he’s anything more than the most blatant of coastal elitists.
In revealing fashion, Bloomberg went on to frame the opioid crisis as a concern for the economy and business interests, as opposed to a great human tragedy that’s ravaged communities and families across the country.
“We’re losing control, and it’s the workforce that suffers.”
WINNING: White House Preparing Executive Order to Ban Left-Wing Critical Race Theory Trainings at Government Agencies
The trainings are used to demonize white federal employees.
The Trump administration’s Director of the Office of Management and Budget confirmed on Friday that the President is ordering federal agencies to cease any and all planned “trainings” on critical race theory, putting an end to practices of racial discrimination at the highest levels of the federal government.
The days of taxpayer funded indoctrination trainings that sow division and racism are over. Under the direction of @POTUS we are directing agencies to halt critical race theory trainings immediately.https://t.co/dyMeJka9rt

“We cannot accept our employees receiving training that seeks to undercut our core values as Americans and drive division within our workforce,” states Vought within the memorandum directed to the heads of executive departments and agencies.
Federal departments and agencies such as the U.S Treasury and Sandia National Laboratories have been previously busted for implementing mandatory anti-white training programs in which any and all white employees of the organizations was compelled to admit their own supposed racism, and write letters of “apology” to women and individuals who identify their race as anything other than White.
The memorandum on the critical race theory training ban explains that the widespread practices run against the American tradition of treating others on merit and anti-discrimination.
Discovery Institute Research Fellow Chris Rufo had argued that such an exact ban was necessary when speaking on Tucker Carlson Tonight on Tuesday, an argument that may have spurred the Trump administration into action in implementing a ban on the discriminatory practices.
This is a strong move by the Trump administration, and comes at a moment where racist and discriminatory racist “trainings” begin to pervade within a wide array of American workplaces, especially within Fortune 500 corporations. Such trainings should be made illegal under existing federal laws banning racial discrimination in both public and private workplaces.
It’s probably pretty likely that left-wing cultural fanatics will attempt to continue anti-white race theory trainings under an altered guise to avoid breaching this order. Enforcing it will take some effort and commitment on the part of the federal government.
