Michael Bloomberg spoke of American terms in dismissive terms in 2016, claiming that they performed simple and easy labor and stating that they could not perform a computer coder’s job.
“I could teach anybody – even people in this room, no offense intended – to be a farmer,” Bloomberg said at Oxford University’s Said School of Business. “It’s a process. You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, add water, up comes the corn. You could learn that.”

He says information workers much different
"You need more gray matter"

Anyone with a passing familiarity of agriculture could quite easily debunk Bloomberg’s reaching oversimplification. Farming is an ancient trade that involves generations of wisdom, requiring knowledge of planting practices, soil quality, and yield estimates, not mentioning the additional discipline of animal husbandry.
Not satisfied with his first display of white collar elitism, Bloomberg went on to slight manufacturing workers and tradesmen.
“Then we had 300 years of the industrial society. You put the piece of metal in the lathe, you turn the crank in direction of an arrow, and you can have a job.”
It’d probably be pretty funny to see the Wall Street investment banker and former New York City mayor work as a machinist for a day.
He went on to clarify that working as a coder represents the peak utilization of human intellectual capacity.
He said programming is “fundamentally different, because it’s built around replacing people with technology and the skill sets you need to learn are how to think and analyze and that is a whole degree level different, you need to have different skill set. You have to have a lot more gray matter.”
Computer programming does provide great utility to society, as do farmers and welders. Bloomberg seems inherently ignorant of the benefits different skill sets provide to America.
Considering he’s trying to buy the presidency, Bloomberg nominally hopes to win states with large rural populations such as Ohio and Pennsylvania in 2020. If so, he’s probably hoping his dismissive remarks will go straight down the memory hole with his widely unpopular stop-and-frisk policies as mayor.
Prosecutors Want Stricter Bond Restrictions for Kyle Rittenhouse for Hanging Out with Proud Boys
The Proud Boys are proud of their boy, Kyle.
Kyle Rittenhouse, out on bond after shooting three ANTIFA rioters and killing two at a Kenosha, Wisc. riot scene last summer, is under scrutiny from authorities for merely having a good time at a bar.
Rittenhouse was at a bar with his mother wearing a “Free as F*ck” t-shirt when he was approached by some local Proud Boys. They took pictures together doing the “OK” symbol, which has become controversial due to left-wing hysteria.

As a result, prosecutors in Kenosha County are hoping to modify Rittenhouse’s bond to prevent the young man from enjoying his freedom. They reportedly want to prevent him from being “serenaded” by Proud Boys and other adoring followers.
“Within a few minutes of entering the bar, the defendant was loudly serenaded by 5 of the adult males with the song “Proud of Your Boy,” which is an obscure song written for the 1992 film, “Aladdin.” The violent white supremacist group called the “Proud Boys” was named after this song, which is sung by its members as an anthem and for self-identification,” the Kenosha County District Attorney’s office wrote.
“The defendant later posed for several photographs with these adults in the bar. In each of these photographs, the defendant and the other adults flashed the “OK” sign used by white supremacists,” they added.
The surreal letter from the DA’s office that looks like it was written by an Anti-Defamation League (ADL) operative can be seen here:

The letter from the DA’s house shows how the government is painting ordinary conservatives and Trump supporters by as white supremacists and terrorist threats based on left-wing propaganda.
Big League Politics reported on how Rittenhouse posted bond in November after spending months confined in jail for exercising his right to self-defense against ANTIFA terrorists:
Illinois teenager Kyle Rittenhouse has been freed from the Kenosha County Jail in Wisconsin, after posting a $2 million bond set by a judge on Friday.
Rittenhouse is charged with two counts of first-degree murder for shooting and killing Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber during a Black Lives Matter riot in August. He’s also charged with a count of being a minor in possession of a firearm.
Rittenhouse was assailed by Rosenbaum while present at the scene of the riots, carrying an AR-style rifle and planning to prevent looting and rioting in Kenosha. Rittenhouse shot and killed Rosenbaum, arguing that he acted in self-defense when Rosenbaum attempted to grab his rifle. Rittenhouse would go on to shoot two men- one of them armed with a gun- who chased him as he tried to flee the scene of the riots.
Rittenhouse had been extradited from Illinois to Wisconsin to face charges. He posted bond through his attorney, Mark Richards, on Friday at 2PM.
Rittenhouse will be remembered as an American hero whether or not he is acquitted in the courts or ultimately made a martyr by a biased and unjust system. The Proud Boys are right to be proud of their boy Kyle in this instance.
