What Christian conservatives need to know about Mike Bloomberg
My Stream colleague John Zmirak claimed that Bloomberg was "much more profoundly evil a person … than anyone ever imagined," even calling him an "amoral monster." Another Stream colleague, Rachel Alexander, has sampled some of Bloomberg's derogatory comments about women and others, as opponents of Donald Trump have often done.

Conservative and Christian opponents of Michael Bloomberg are spot on in their criticism.  He is a racist.  He’s said and done many things against minorities and minority Americans.  He’s a misogynist.  Elizabeth Warren was correct about him on that count as well as others she mentioned.  Bloomberg is a control freak thinking to substitute his views as regulations over our freedom and liberty to do the opposite.  His bigotry against religion as mayor was legendary in an evil way.  Lastly his “just kill it” attitude regarding abortion on demand is simply morally evil incarnate.  


S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



It is ironic that former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg is presenting himself as the balanced alternative to extreme socialists like Senator Bernie Sanders. In reality, when it comes to areas of great concern to Christian conservatives, Bloomberg has been anything but moderate.

As  noted  by Catholic activist Bill Donohue with references to his tenure as mayor, "on two key social issues – abortion and religious liberty – the presidential candidate was a total bomb."

Donohue actually claims that "Bloomberg is one of the most radical pro-abortion politicians in American history."

Among the former mayor's accomplishments was this: "Bloomberg's passion for abortion allowed him to appropriate $15 million from a civic facility revenue bond transaction that benefited Planned Parenthood."

Would you want someone like this in the White House?

Lest you think these policies were a thing of the past, on February 12 Bloomberg  announced , "As president, I will fiercely protect a woman's right to choose, and I will appoint judges who will defend that right."

He also declared, "On my first day in office, I will reverse the damage President Trump has done to women's rights and ensure that every woman has access to reproductive health care."

ap_20051611052284_350x219.jpg Never Trumpers who are pro-life might want to reconsider their stance should Bloomberg become the Democratic nominee. (For that matter, given the current crop of candidates, they should  reconsider  their stance regardless of which candidate emerges as the Democratic nominee.)

Donohue also states that, "On religious liberty issues, Bloomberg's record was similarly awful."

To cite just one example, "The courts have long ruled that religious groups have a right to use public facilities, yet Bloomberg denied the right of an inner-city Christian church to hold religious services in a public school on Sundays, setting up a court challenge. He lost in federal district court in 2005, but his censorial effort was not lost on supporters of the Bronx Household of Faith."

I ask once again: if you are a Christian conservative (or, simply a person who cherishes our fundamental freedoms), is this the kind of man you want in the White House?

My Stream colleague John Zmirak  claimed  that Bloomberg was "much more profoundly evil a person … than anyone ever imagined," even calling him an "amoral monster."

Another Stream colleague, Rachel Alexander, has  sampled  some of Bloomberg's derogatory comments about women and others, as opponents of Donald Trump have often done.

The difference, of course, is that Trump has proven himself a friend of the unborn and a friend of religious liberties. Bloomberg has proven himself to be the exact opposite.

Timothy P. Carney drew attention to several of Bloomberg's more severe statements that confirm this. For example, he  writes  that, "Mike Bloomberg once pointed to the  in utero  child of an employee and said 'kill it, kill it,' according to two witnesses."

And this, according to Carney, is part of a larger, dangerous mindset:

"Telling an expectant mother to  kill her baby mocking a new mother's desire for quality child care , cursing whenever a female employee gets pregnant, and publicly denigrating marriage among professional women all reflect a clear and consistent mindset: The women who worked for him were worker bees. Their humanity, their fertility, their love, and their human attachments were all impediments to productivity. He saw these women as means to his ends of profit."

Let the reader look at Bloomberg's more recent, pro-abortion comments and decide whether this assessment is accurate.

Personally, what I'm sure about is what his policies have been and what he promises his policies will be. That is not the person I want leading our country.

What raises even more concerns is that Bloomberg presented himself as a champion of religious liberty as mayor. As David French  noted in 2012, "at the same time that the mayor declared that 'no neighborhood' in New York was 'off-limits to God's love and mercy,' he was enforcing a unique-in-the-nation policy that in fact declared New York City schools 'off-limits' to private religious use that includes worship."

Yes, this was unique to New York.

As ADF attorney Jordan Lawrence  explained , "By state law, the city opens its 1,200 schools on weeknights and weekends to community groups for any use 'pertaining to the welfare of the community.' The public schools allow thousands of organizations – scout troops, labor unions, arts groups, etc. – to hold meetings, concerts and recitals. They've even allowed 'Law and Order' to film in the schools.

"Why single out religious groups and churches, by prohibiting them from conducting worship services in vacant schools when students are gone?"

So, under Mayor Bloomberg, everyone else had the right to rent and use the city's 1,200 school buildings with the sole exception of religious groups and churches. Why?

The New York Daily News was not hyping things when its February 14, 2012 headline  announced : "The Bloomberg administration says churches must leave school buildings now."

Is this the administration you want running America?

Let the voter beware.

How fascinating that one would endorse a hit piece that tosses out unsubstantiated allegations passed on through multiple sources, repeats exaggerations and misrepresentations of Bloomberg but will do the exact opposite in defense of Trump.

Thanks to his billions, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is getting some traction in the Democratic presidential race. But as he becomes more visible, so does his past. He’s given his opponents good reason to dig up dirt on him.

And boy is there a  lot  of dirt.

Rude and Offensive

He’s made plenty of rude statements. And nearly as many offensive statements. We have documentation. Elisabeth DeMarse, Bloomberg L.P.’s former chief marketing officer, created a  booklet  as a gag gift for him in 1990 titled “The Portable Bloomberg The Wit and Wisdom of Michael Bloomberg.”

Bloomberg Belittles Farmers

Not even farmers are safe from Bloomberg’s contempt. He belittled them four years ago on a panel at Oxford University. “I could teach anybody, even people in this room, no offense intended, to be a farmer,” he said.

“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.” 

Vice President Mike Pence responded by tweeting a speech the legendary Paul Harvey made at the Future Farmers of America convention in 1978. It’s  a beautiful speech , about God saying he needs a farmer.

It begins: “On the eighth day, God looked down on his planned paradise, and said, ‘I need a caretaker.’ So God made a farmer. God said, ‘I need somebody willing to get up before dawn, milk cows, work all day in the fields, milk cows again, eat supper and then go to town and stay past midnight at a meeting of the school board.’ So God made a farmer.”

WATCH the amazing video below. 

She wrote in the introduction, “Yes, these are all actual quotes. No, nothing has been embellished or exaggerated. And yes, some things were too outrageous to include.”

A lot of his quotes cannot be reproduced here, because this is a family-friendly site. Many of them use profanity and talk about sex. Usually degrading, exploitative sex. Apparently his former marketing office left out others even worse than those.

Here are three of the tamer ones. Regarding women, he said, “If women wanted to be appreciated for their brains, they’d go to the library instead of Bloomingdale’s.” And, “I know for a fact that any self-respecting woman who walks past a construction site and doesn’t get a whistle will turn around and walk past again and again until she does get one.”

He’s no kinder about the British royals. “The Royal Family — what a bunch of misfits — a gay, an architect, that horsey faced lesbian, and a kid who gave up Koo Stark for some fat broad.”

Bloomberg’s Response

Bloomberg campaign spokesperson Stu Loeser  said the booklet included “comments that may or may not have been said.” He told  The New York Times  in November that “Mike has come to see that some of what he has said is disrespectful and wrong. … He believes his words have not always aligned with his values and the way he has led his life.”

Another offensive incident took place when Bloomberg was taking a photo with some people. He saw an employee standing nearby. Sekiko Sakai Garrison was not in the picture. He  asked  her, “Why didn’t they ask you to be in the picture? I guess they saw your face.”

He went on, “How’s married life? You married?” She said she was expecting a baby. Bloomberg responded, “Kill it.” He then muttered, “Great! Number 16!” Garrison interpreted the remarks as telling her to have an abortion or she would lose her job. The “16” apparently referred to the number of pregnant women in the company.

Garrison filed a lawsuit  alleging  that Bloomberg and other employees “engaged in a pattern and practice of sexual harassment, sexual degradation of women, and discrimination.” Garrison alleged that Bloomberg would berate pregnant women. “What the hell did you do a thing like that for?” She said he told an employee who had trouble finding a nanny, “All you need is some black who doesn’t have to speak English to rescue it from a burning building.”

Confidential Settlement Over Remarks

Under oath, Bloomberg denied the exchange with Garrison occurred. But he reached a confidential settlement with her, which sources say was in the six figures. A former Bloomberg employee, David Zielenziger,  said  he observed the conversation. He told  The Washington Post , “He talked kind of crudely about women all the time.”

In 1996, Bloomberg  told  The Guardian, “I like theater, dining and chasing women.” In his 1997 autobiography,  Bloomberg By Bloomberg , he bragged that he “had a girlfriend in every city.”

Help us champion truth, freedom, limited government and human dignity.   Support The Stream » 

Regarding the elderly and healthcare, Bloomberg once said, “If you show up with cancer and you’re 95 yrs old, we should say ‘There’s no cure, we can’t do anything.'” One clever woman  responded  on Twitter, “What if you’re 86 yrs old, you’ve been treated for colorectal cancer, cancerous lung growths and pancreatic cancer? And your name is Ruth Bader Ginsburg?”

Rude Remarks About Minorities

In 2011, Bloomberg  said  “an enormous cohort of black and Latino males” who “don’t know how to behave in the workplace.” He was promoting a multimillion-dollar initiative to help minorities gain employment during his tenure as New York City mayor.

In 2015, he made another controversial remark about minorities. Defending the police’s stop and frisk policy, he  said  the way to bring down murder rates is to “put a lot of cops” in minority neighborhoods because that’s where “all the crime is.”

And that wasn’t all. He  said  the end of discriminatory redlining by banks led to the 2008 economic crisis. Redlining was a practice where banks refused to offer credit to certain places on a map, which were often drawn to keep out minority neighborhoods.

Bloomberg’s bloopers are getting quite a bit of media attention since he’s rising in the Democratic polls for president. The RealClearPolitics  average of polls  has him at 14.2. Will his gaffes hurt his chances? Biden has drastically slipped in the polls, possibly due to all of his misstatements. The same may very well happen to Bloomberg.

In the meantime, please view this beautiful tribute to the farmers so easily dismissed by Mayor Bloomberg.

That is a lie.   I have pointed out the hypocrisy of someone attacking Bloomberg's character based on hearsay, exaggeration and fabrication while praising Trump in spite of his abysmal, proven character flaws.

You should realize the hypocrisy.   It is obvious.   So it is not only fair game but appropriate to counter punch by calling out the hypocrisy.

In short, one who routinely defends and admires Trump would be hypocritical to go after another politician based on character (especially if this is based on allegations rather than fact).    If you accept Trump in spite of his character flaws and focus instead on his policies then do the same for other politicians.   For example, I have never suggested that you are hypocritical for criticizing Bloomberg's soda bans.

And the difference here is that Trump did say that and admitted to it.

The transcript is:

Trump: "I moved on her actually. You know she was down on Palm Beach. I moved on her and I failed. I’ll admit it. I did try and fuck her. She was married. "

Unidentified man:  "That’s huge news there."

Trump: "No, no. Nancy. No this was— And I moved on her very heavily. In fact, I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture. I said, ‘I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture.’ I took her out furniture– I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there. And she was married . Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look."

Bush: "Sheesh, your girl’s hot as shit, in the purple."

Trump: "Whoa! Whoa!"

Bush: "Yes. Yes, the Donald has" (unintelligible)

Unidentified man: "Wait, wait you’ve got to look at me when you get out and be like ... will you give me the thumbs up? You’ve got to put the thumbs up."

(crosstalk)

Trump: "Alright, you and I will walk down."

(unintelligible)

Trump: "Maybe it’s a different one."

Bush: "It better not be the publicist. No, it’s her. It’s her."

Trump: "Yeah, that’s her, with the gold. I’ve got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. I just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. "

There’s a boomlet in stories by conservatives on two parallel topics:

  • How dangerous Bernie Sanders is. Both because his radicalism is real (read  Paul Sperry  on Sanders as a full-on  communist ), and because he evokes the same kind of passion as winners like Donald Trump. See  my piece , and the one by fantastic new  Stream  contributor  Denise McCallister .
  • How much more profoundly evil a person Michael Bloomberg is than anyone ever imagined. Read our own Rachel Alexander’s  fine article . And this  passionate essay  by Tim Carney of  The Washington Examiner , on Bloomberg as an amoral monster.

Getting Down to Two Sickening Choices

I’m glad that the Democratic field is winnowing down. It’s good that the merely flawed and mediocre candidates are falling by the wayside, making room for a grand contest between the truly hideous, appalling ones. Did you really want to spend the next six months of your life

  • Hearing Pocahontas jokes?
  • Or more wacko digressions where Joe Biden channels Grandpa Simpson about how “In my day, all the Negroes loved Esther Williams movies”?
  • Watching Amy Klobuchar play the victim and try not to break down crying when anybody criticizes her? (And in every other way acting like Reese Witherspoon’s madly ambitious student council politician in  Election .)
  • Or trying to figure out what exactly mediocre small-town mayor Pete Buttigieg actually did to become a presidential contender, other than practicing in the mirror to channel Barack Obama?

I’ve written here repeatedly that our headlines seem to stolen from some bad  apocalyptic novel  self-published in the 90s and sold only at gun shows. For the race for the Democratic nomination I need to tweak that. Their contenders in 2020 are literary characters, all right. But from different novels.

Straight Out of C.S. Lewis

The lesser Democrats (Warren, Buttigieg, Klobuchar, and now Biden) are minor comic figures from one of Tom Wolfe’s satires. (Think of  The Bonfire of the Vanities .) Each has clawed his way to the top of a different greasy political ladder that stops well short of the presidency. And each now waves around his 10-point, single-spaced resume, crowing about how he  followed all the rules,  so now it’s his turn. It’s only fair. Watching such stunted people flail around at the end of their tethers is ultimately kind of … sad.

But Bernie Sanders and Mike Bloomberg are different. They’re major characters, and from a more important writer. Each of them could have sprung from the pen of C.S. Lewis, and stepped out of the pages of the dystopian satire  That Hideous Strength .  In fact, the two candidates seem like colleagues at the conspiratorial think-tank, the National Institute for Co-ordinated Experiments (N.I.C.E.).CSLewis_ThatHideousStrength-208x300.jpg

Bernie Sanders: Prophetic Maniac

Paul Sperry  makes the case  that we should take seriously Sanders’ consistent support for Communist regimes. You know, as the media would if Trump had a long track record of praising fascist governments, like Pinochet’s Chile. Or had honeymooned with Ivana in apartheid-era South Africa. Sperry writes:

If Sanders were vying for a Cabinet post, he’d never pass an FBI background check. There’d be too many subversive red flags popping up in his file. He was a communist collaborator during the height of the Cold War.

[Sanders] organized for a communist front, the United Packinghouse Workers Union, which at the time was under investigation by the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

After graduating with a political science degree, Sanders moved to Vermont, where he headed the American People’s History Society, an organ for Marxist propaganda. There, he produced a glowing documentary on the life of socialist revolutionary Eugene Debs, who was jailed for espionage during the Red Scare and hailed by the Bolsheviks as “America’s greatest Marxist.”

Sanders took several “goodwill” trips not only to the USSR, but also to Cuba and Nicaragua, where the Soviets were trying to expand their influence in our hemisphere.

Sanders also adopted a Soviet sister city outside Moscow and honeymooned with his second wife in the USSR. He put up a Soviet flag in his office, shocking even the Birkenstock-wearing local liberals. At the time, the Evil Empire was on the march around the world, and threatening the US with nuclear annihilation.

Then, in 1989, as the West was on the verge of winning the Cold War, Sanders addressed the national conference of the US Peace Council — a known front for the Communist Party USA, whose members swore an oath not only to the Soviet Union but to “the triumph of Soviet power in the US.”

In the last debate, Sanders ranted and fumed. He cited the suffering of the “American working class.” Maybe this old man thinks he’s running in 1932. He’s campaigning to half-starved workers squatting in “Hoovervilles” and waiting hollow-eyed on bread lines. Instead of, you know, enjoying an economic boom with record-low unemployment and real pay raises in blue-collar pockets. That’s because Sanders is not a politician. Or indeed a public figure grounded in day-to-day reality. He’s a wild-eyed prophet of a gnostic religion.

His creed? Hate the world as it is. Love instead the crudely drawn but fanatically treasured Utopian dream-world it promises to make real. Ignore the cost in blood, waste, freedom and mutual hatred that would impose on living, breathing people. You know, like the tens of millions who died from Cuba to Cambodia.

Desolation Theology

In other words, Sanders incarnates C.S. Lewis’ character Reverend Straik. That parson has decided that the “Kingdom of God” is something we forge on earth via bayonets and bullets. Jesus was nothing more than a prophet of revolution. A partisan of the poor who tragically died too young to fully unfold his worldview. Or found an effective guerrilla movement to fight the Romans. We should cling to Jesus’ occasional signs of rage against injustice. Just slough off His calls for non-violence and meekness. Think of them as youthful indiscretions a longer-lived activist would surely have outgrown.

Bernie Sanders and Mike Bloomberg are different. Each of them could have sprung from the pen of C.S. Lewis, and stepped out of the pages of the dystopian satire “That Hideous Strength.”

In other words, we should reject Christian metaphysics, but cling arbitrarily to certain tenets of Christian morality. Why? Because we like them. They give us a pretext for a life spent boiling over with rage against our neighbors. And scheming to gain more power to engineer their lives and “fix” them. For their own good, of course. That’s what Bernie Sanders has been doing for decades, instead of ever getting a real productive job.

Bloomberg: Mad Scientist

And Bloomberg? He shows us how small and squalid human beings become when they dispense with biblical morality altogether. Then follow materialism all the way down the slippery Gadarene slope to drown in the sea. Tim Carney’s truthful portrait of the ex-mayor is a savage masterpiece. A few choice snippets appear below.

Mike Bloomberg once pointed to the  in utero  child of an employee and said “kill it, kill it,” according to two witnesses.

According to another female employee, he would say of attractive women, “I’d like to do that piece of meat.”

“It’s a f—ing baby,” Bloomberg  reportedly  yelled at another female employee when she was scrambling to find a nanny for her child. “All it does is eat and sh*t! It doesn’t know the difference between you and anyone else! All you need is some black who doesn’t even have to speak English to rescue it from a burning building!”

Carney sums Bloomberg up, for all his billions, in a few short well-chosen words.

Bloomberg’s ideology is neither left nor right. Instead, his worldview is supremely materialistic, and ultimately inhuman.

In Bloomberg’s eyes, any talk of the dignity of the human person is mawkish sentimentality. Mike Bloomberg doesn’t see people as ends in themselves, but instead as means to ends.

People are either inconveniences to be ignored or terminated (babies), threats to be neutralized and intimidated (minority males), corporate machine parts to be exploited for profit (employees), or tools for sexual gratification (women).

Sex Robots and Surveillance Drones

In other words, Bloomberg is the real-life Filostrato. He’s the eunuch scientist Lewis depicts in  That Hideous Strength  who has learned to loathe all biological life. Its messy, sticky, oozing fertility and madcap freedom offend Filastrato. He prefers the austerity of bone-freezing empty space, and the tidy sterility of planets without any atmosphere. Filostrato wants to impose an authoritarian state, to be sure. But only as a means to finally “cleansing” the planet of the “contagion” of organic life.

Bloomberg doesn’t seem to be big on introspection, so even he might not realize it. But his own Utopia, fully realized, is easy to picture. Visualize a world of disarmed, dutiful worker bees kept “happy” by sex robots and docile by surveillance drones.

No if fully and objectively reviewed.   Hearsay and unsubstantiated claims are spin and whole-cloth allegations based on partial truths.   In contrast, a tape of some guy talking about grabbing pussies is not hearsay.   Right?

Partisan politics is inherently slimy and dishonest.   Thus I find pure partisans to be distasteful.   More people should ignore the spin machines and actually objectively read transcripts, watch the full video, listen to the full audio.   People should not try to create a false narrative by cherry-picking, redefining and lying.

And people should not simply repeat what others tell them without being able to back up their claims.

Warren was obviously being dishonest.   She asked Bloomberg about his taxes and he stated that he is releasing them like he has routinely done in the past and that they are working on them with release in a few weeks.   She would not accept that and came up with the ridiculous rebuttal that he should do it faster by paying overtime.   Clearly she was not interested in anything but attack.

I see the same with your seeds and comments.   Attacking Bloomberg on hearsay, spin and flat out fabrication while defending and praising Trump.   Pure blind partisanship.

So people are not going to vote against Trumps re election for stuff that they knew about before voting for him the first time. We are going to vote for him based on his accomplishments in office.  Now Bloomberg is going through an initial vetting like Trump did in 2015 and 2016.  I’m more than willing to see what his democrat opponents dig up on him.  I already despised him over the school issue in NYC, the soda ban, and the gun grabbing issues before he ever got Into the Presidential campaign.  Now I have more reasons not to like.

Since, in spite of your years of claiming otherwise, you obviously do not have clue one on my position, here is plenty of information.    First, I will quote an excerpt from an article I wrote in 2018 on the topic:

TiG ( 2018 ) ☞ Socialism, in contrast, is a theoretical approach wherein the individual contributor (typically called 'worker') has substantially more direct control over their economic opportunities.   This is so different from how things work today and how people think, it is not likely to happen in any of our lifetimes (if at all).   But it is likely that we will see some migration towards socialism or possibly a new variant of capitalism.

The above, if you read it, states my most general position on socialism.   It is a theoretical meta-model that has never existed.   If a model of socialism does exist in the future, it will be well into the future (none of us will be alive) and will be the result of societal evolution.   To exist, it necessarily must come from the desire and efforts of the people.

TiG ( 2018 ) ☞ The point of this article is to just get people to break free of slogans and labels about 'socialism' and understand (at least superficially) what socialism actually is trying to accomplish.   This is not about agreement (I personally have plenty of things to say in disagreement ) but rather about being properly informed.

The above, if you read it, shows that my purpose for discussing socialism (and this has been true for over a decade) is to encourage people to break free of slogan-level thinking and at least understand the meaning of the terms they use.   Instead of calling everything they dislike 'socialism' it is far more effective to name the issue.   There are excellent, unambiguous terms to use such as redistribution, expropriation, statism, public services, big government, command economy, etc.   Use them, be clear, and avoid sounding like a conspiracy theorist or someone who lacks clue one about the subject matter and just cries 'socialism' at every turn.

Here is a link to the article .   Plenty of comments there if my summary does not sufficiently impart my position to you.

Just to set the record straight as to what it is that we should be aware of before considering any vote for him.  That was the topic of this seeded article.

It was a moderator comment that comments were under review and then removed as to not disturb the article.

It was a linked excerpt from the seeded article as to what the actual topic of it is.  How can an excerpt from an article disturb the same article?  All that was disturbed was the ongoing derailing to talk about Trump instead.

This comment that proves Trump is part of the topic?

My Stream colleague John Zmirak claimed that Bloomberg was "much more profoundly evil a person … than anyone ever imagined," even calling him an "amoral monster." Another Stream colleague, Rachel Alexander, has sampled some of Bloomberg's derogatory comments about women and others, as opponents of Donald Trump have often done. The difference, of course, is that Trump has proven himself a friend of the unborn and a friend of religious liberties

or these comments from the seed also?

He also declared, "On my first day in office, I will reverse the damage President Trump has done to women's rights and ensure that every woman has access to reproductive health care."

 Never Trumpers who are pro-life might want to reconsider their stance should Bloomberg become the Democratic nominee.

Bloomberg is an indescribably vile and evil human being unworthy of being selected dog catcher.  He’s a control freak and the worst possible choice in the democrat party primaries

Such a cogent argument.   I am sure you are persuading all sorts of people with these ridiculous, emotional declarations.
