Shockingly, NOT shockingly when Mike Bloomberg was entertaining the idea of running in 2020, he did a little pandering to the black community by begging forgiveness for instituting and backing Stop-and-Frisk.
For the record having worked in NYC for over two decades, I supported then-Republican Mike Bloomberg’s Stop-and-Frisk policy. While Bloomberg denied targeting any specific race, which I would have utterly opposed, there is no question when the NYPD implemented stop-and-frisk it helped reduce gun violence in NYC to historically low numbers.
Before Mike Bloomberg bought his way into the Democrats clown car of 2020 presidential candidates. In November 2019, Michael Bloomberg went on his ‘Stop-and-Frisk‘ pandering to the black community apology tour.
In his mea culpa Bloomberg whined “I Can’t Change History,” but after now listening to this leaked audio, while the vertically challenged former New York City Mayor couldn’t change history, that didn’t stop him from re-writing it.
Michael Bloomberg Defended His Stop-and Frisk Racism
Back in 2013, during the last year of Bloomberg’s administration, he fought tooth and nail for his policy after a federal judge ruled that New York City’s stop-and-frisk policy amounted to racial harassment and was unconstitutional.
But in Bloomberg’s lead-up to announcing his 2020 run, he made a public appearance at an African-American megachurch in Brooklyn, where he begged forgiveness for his role in championing and later defending his stop-and-frisk racial profiling policy.
But despite his attempt Bloomberg’s mea culpa rang hollow for many in the black community and for good reason.
Despite what he stated whenever the subject was brought up, Bloomberg continued to reflexively defend his stop-and-frisk policy.
Bloomberg Doesn’t Hide What He Really Believes About Minorities
In 2015, Mike Bloomberg made an appearance at an Aspen Institute function.
The leaked audio from that event has Mike Bloomberg not only defending his stop-and-frisk racial profiling policy.
But far more egregious for Michael Bloomberg, it exposes what the vertically challenged billionaire truly feels about minorities.
Bloomberg used a broad brush to paint minorities as violent crime perpetrators who were overwhelmingly “male, minority, and 16 to 25 years old.”
In the roughly minute-long excerpt Michael Bloomberg didn’t try to hide what he truly felt:
“95% of your murders — murderers and murder victims — fit one M.O.
You can just take the description, Xerox it and pass it out to all the cops.”
They are male, minority, and 16 to 25 years old.
That’s true in New York, that true in virtually every city. And, that’s where the real crime is.
You got to get the guns out of the hands of the people that are getting killed.
You want to spend the money to put a lot of cops on the street.
Put those cops where the crime is, which means in minority neighborhoods.
The way you get the guns out of the kids’ hands, is to throw them up against the walls and frisk them.”
Listen to the audio below which Mike Bloomberg blocked from public release at the time, but has now been released by podcaster Benjamin Dixon.
Democrats Trump Fantasies, Trumps Democrats Reality
Amazingly, what Mike Bloomberg got caught saying is everything that the ‘Do As I Say, Not As I Do‘ Democrats accuse President Donald Trump of supposedly saying.
In spite of their ‘Feelings,’ the fact is President Donald Trump has never made such blatant racists comments as you just heard from Mike Bloomberg.
Nevertheless, Liberal Democrats continue to screech that Trump a racist Nazi Dictator who loathes minorities.
Similar to Hillary Clinton’s “Bring Them To Hell” racist comments, it would not be at all shocking to see Democrat apologist like CNN Brian Stelter simply ignore what Bloomberg said, in favor of deflecting to another ‘Orange Man Bad‘ report.
Of course, that is assuming the Mainstream Media even reports on this Mike Bloomberg audio.
As Conservatives are well aware of, the mainstream media fantasies of President Trump’s incivility, clearly Trump’s any racist, antisemitic Democrat reality.
