when people hear about this, sure as hell doesn't want people watching him say it.
Various national media outlets jumped on the pointed comments, for both the pro-gun control sentiment and the racial aspect.
Perhaps because of that response, Bloomberg, who founded the massive Bloomberg L.P. media empire, has asked both the Aspen Institute and GrassRoots TV, the company that filmed the event, to refrain from broadcasting footage of the talk, according to Summit Daily.
Just in case you haven't heard about this, the part that got the most attention(then) was
At the Institute’s Feb. 5 event, the pro-gun control
multi-billionaire suggested keeping guns out of the hands of young, male
Ninety-five percent of murders are attributed to the group, said
Bloomberg, who has spend tens of millions of dollars on various gun
control initiatives, including the group Everytown for Gun Safety.
Rendered in the manner in which Mommies Want and Everytown believe it spoken it the South, that would be "We gotta keep them young coloreds from gettin' guns!" But spoken by a good progressive like Bloomberg, it's all good.
And now we can add in this gem:
During his talk, Bloomberg also discussed “stop-and-frisk,” a policing
practice he advocated and expanded during his mayoral tenure. He said
that one way to deal with the issue of gun proliferation among young,
minority males is to “throw them up against the wall and frisk them.”
Because what's the 4th Amendment think it is, that it should get in the way of what Lord Bloomberg desires?
And never mind that oath he took about upholding the Constitution, that doesn't count.
