Mike Bloomberg on Why He Ordered Cops to Target Minorities as NYC Mayor: They Commit All The Crimes!

Published

on

Audio has emerged of former New York City Mayor and Democrat Party presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg admitting that he used racial profiling when ordering police to enforce controversial stop-and-frisk policies.

Bloomberg has come under fire for his aggressive use of the policy to get weapons and drugs off of the streets of New York City. Stop-and-frisk involved police warrantlessly detaining a suspect and patting him down in an attempt to find contraband based upon the suspicion of a law enforcement officer. Critics call this an invasive violation of privacy rights.

Despite the criticism from liberals and criminal justice policy reformers, Bloomberg has stood steadfastly behind his use of the policy.

“I think people, the voters, want low crime,” Bloomberg said to the New York Times after they asked him about stop-and-frisk. “They don’t want kids to kill each other.”

“New York City had 650 murders a year when I came into office, and the toll fell heaviest on black and Hispanic young men,” Bloomberg said. “We were determined to do everything possible to stop gun violence, both by taking guns off the street and by taking on the NRA — when few other elected officials were willing to do that.”

However, Bloomberg’s position is going to be much harder to defend now that leaked audio has emerged of the former mayor candidly discussing how he essentially ordered race-based discrimination due to his belief that minorities commit the vast majority of crime.

“95% of your murders – murderers and murder victims – fit one M.O. You can just take the description, Xerox it, and pass it to all the cops,” Bloomberg explained in the candid audio. “They are male, minorities, sixteen to twenty-five.”

“That’s true in New York, that’s true in virtually every city, and that’s where the real crime is. You’ve got to get the guns out of the hands of the people who are being killed. You want to spend the money on a lot of cops on the streets. Put those cops where the crime is, which means in minority neighborhoods,” he added.

Bloomberg essentially admitted that all of the left-wing criticisms of his policy were correct, but defended hassling minorities because of his belief that they are the ones responsible for crimes.

“One of the unintended consequences is people say, ‘Oh my God, you are arresting kids for marijuana that are all minorities!’ Yes, that’s true. Why? Because we put all the cops in the minority neighborhoods. Yes, that’s true. Why do we do it? Because that’s where all the crime is,” Bloomberg explained.

“And the ways you get the guns out of the kids’ hands is to throw them against the wall and frisk them. And then they start, they say ‘I don’t want to get caught.’ So they don’t bring the gun. They still have a gun, but they leave it at home,” he concluded.

Bloomberg’s racially-insensitive rant can be heard here:

In an age when the Democrat Party wants leniency for criminals and condemns racism wherever they can find it, Bloomberg’s rant is not likely to help his chances to buy the Democrat nomination for the presidency.

Mitt Romney Admits: Trump Likely to Be Re-Elected

Just weeks ago, Romney was voting to impeach Trump.

Published

on

Mitt Romney admitted during a Munich Security Conference panel in Germany that President Donald Trump is “likely” to be re-elected on Friday.

Romney’s admission could be interpreted as a tacit admission that the Utah Republican was seeking to overturn the likely will of the American voter in the 2020 election. Romney was the only Republican to vote to convict Trump on Democratic impeachment charges, claiming he warranted removal from office for temporarily suspending foreign aid to Ukraine.

I can tell you I think it’s likely he will get reelected, not because he’s highly popular, but because I think the Democrats are not going to nominate someone who’ll be a very effective competitor.

Romney’s answer when asked about Trump’s re-election chances seems to suggest he believes Democrats are going to nominate Bernie Sanders. Establishment conservatives such as Romney often tend to underestimate populist political figures such as Sanders in a similar manner that they did Trump in the 2016 election. (Romney did admit that he “did not predict that President Trump would become President Trump.”)

Romney was lauded for his impeachment vote by the crowd at the annual event, a mainstay institution for the western political elite. A moderator for the panel claimed he “probably the most courageous lawmaker we have in the United States.”

The failed 2012 presidential candidate may have alienated himself even further from the Republican party with remarks that seemed dismissive of his Senate colleagues, describing them as beholden to the President.

In what may have been his most self-reflective remarks of the night, Romney admitted there was little to no desire among the American public for the outdated liberal conservative principles he’s known for.

Right now, the nature of American politics is highly populist… I’m perhaps a throwback. I jokingly say I have about 2% of the population that’s with me.”

I think that might be a bit on the high side, Mitt.
