    YOU MUST NEVER Vote for Bloomberg

     

    “…..His expansion of the notoriously racist STOP & FRISK program is a complete and nonnegotiable deal breaker….”

     

     

     

    -snip-

    “…With his filing of paperwork on Friday to put his name on the ballot for the Democratic primary in Alabama, the billionaire businessman and former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg inched closer to declaring a run for the Democratic nomination for president. According to The New York Times, his advisers say he hasn’t made up his mind yet. But I have.

     

     

    Let me plant the stake now: No black person — or Hispanic person or ally of people of color — should ever even consider voting for Michael Bloomberg in the primary. His expansion of the notoriously racist stop-and-frisk program in New York, which swept up millions of innocent New Yorkers, primarily young black and Hispanic men, is a complete and nonnegotiable deal killer. Stop-and-frisk, pushed as a way to get guns and other contraband off the streets, became nothing short of a massive, enduring, city-sanctioned system of racial terror. This system of terror exploded under Bloomberg, with his full advocacy and support.

    ………………

    Not only that, but those who were stopped had their names entered into a comprehensive police database, even if they were never accused of committing a crime. As Donna Lieberman, then the executive director of the New York Civil Liberties Union, said in 2010, the database became a place “where millions of completely innocent, predominantly black and Latinos have been turned into permanent police suspects.”

     

    The state outlawed the keeping of these electronic records on the innocent, over the strong objections of Bloomberg and his police chief. Bloomberg used the fear factor to keep white New Yorkers in his corner. He insisted that stop-and-frisk was keeping them safe and that without it crime would soar. And his ruse worked. In eight separate surveys from 2012 to 2013, pollsters at Quinnipiac University asked New Yorkers if they approved of stop-and-frisk. Every single time, a majority of white New Yorkers said they approved……”

    In this climate of Pitchforks at the Ready, Bloomberg is going nowhere but in the dust bin of history.

    Are you kidding me? Another Billionaire arrogant enough to think he can buy the White House in this political climate? He doesn’t have a chance in hell of winning anything.

    The ONLY people’who will vote for him are other millionaires/Billionaires…the 1%.

    Talk about out of touch! The elite class really do live in their own little bubble.

      Sadly, I don’t think that he, or his ‘supporters’, are crazy enough to think he’ll win the nomination.   He’s entering the primary for one reason,  to set the stage for a 3rd party run.  He figures wasting some time and a few million to spoil Bernie’s chances against Drumpf are worth it for billionaires like him.

      When the going gets tough, the tough help each other.

        Bloomberg doesn’t have a chance in hell ruining Bernie’s run by running 3rd party. No way in hell will he take votes away from Bernie! No one supporting Bernie would even consider voting for Bloomberg and any votes he does get will be from people who would have voted for Trump to protect all their $$$$$$$$$$ but find him mentally unfit.

        Bloomberg would get the 1% vote and Bernie would get everyone else.

        Trump and Bloomberg split the 1% vote.

      He’s also the “one” who ordered the mass incarceration of peaceful counter demonstrators at the 2004 GOP convention. ( Which convention he had INVITED to the city. That was during his “Republican” phase.)

      NYC taxpayers had to shell out $$$millions in settlements to the illegally arrested victims.

      Alas…. it’s ” hidden from history” by Bloomberg’s friends, colleagues and collaborators in corporate media.

       

      Aside from a lot of stuff like that he was really a GREAT mayor!

    I don’t vote for businessmen/businesswomen, especially billionaire businesspersons, more especially billionaire businesspersons who were or are Republicans.  Someone who spends every day over the course of their lifetime desperately preoccupied with making profit simply ain’t deep and wise enough to represent me in government.

    “It’s nothing personal”, said the bankster as he took granma’s farm, “it’s just Business, As Usual™“.

    Hopefully Bloomberg will split the centrist vote with Biden in the primaries, and Bernie will win the nomination by a large margin.

    Promote Freedom From Religion, and Separation of Church and State.

    His proposals mostly benefit the wealthy, and are what I call “Superficial Liberal”, where it sounds great since you think it helps socially, environmentally, etc…, but when you look deep in to it, all it does is make it easier for them to charge regular people higher, place more fees, make life harder, with very LIMITED actual effect.  It just sounds good.

    For example:

    • Stop and Frisk – I don’t have to explain this.
    • Banning Large Drink sizes – All this did was make beverages more expensive, and families just have to buy more to share, since people don’t actually stop drinking.  They are now just forced to pay more.
    • School Reform – Didn’t actually help, made improvements stagnant, closed schools etc.

    However, he did raise taxes to pay for services.  It is a sad state of affairs, that I have to applaud a politician for raising taxes to pay for the system, since too many are just borrow and spend Cons.
