How can the Democratic Party even look at themselves in the mirror and pretend to be all woke and inclusive when they’ve dropped every presidential candidate who is not lily white and are now lining up behind Mike Bloomberg for president?
How can former Denver Mayor Wellington Webb not have a problem with how Bloomberg policed minorities as mayor of New York City?
Or that Bloomberg was bragging about his policies less than five years ago to fellow liberals at an Aspen Institute event.
Keep in mind, Bloomberg was bragging in 2015 about polices ruled illegal by a judge as racial profiling in 2013.
Bloomberg didn’t backtrack or apologize for what he said until last week when the tapes resurfaced.
And that’s when Webb threw his endorsement to Bloomberg, the “stop-and-frisk” mayor who thinks it was okay for cops to “throw ‘em against the wall and frisk ’em.”
Here’s what Bloomberg said:
“Ninety-five percent of your murders… fit one M.O. You can just take the description, Xerox it and pass it out to all the cops. They are male, minorities, 16 to 25. That’s true in New York, that’s true in virtually every city.”
Bloomberg believed (until last week) all murders are minorities, and Webb chalked up his speech and policies as mayor as a mistake.
“And having been a mayor three terms, I know we made mistakes, we’re not perfect. But the more important issue is when you make a mistake, did you own it, did you not run away from it, did you say we made a mistake and we’re going to keep moving forward.”
Actually, Bloomberg did none of those things.
If Bloomberg believed, until last week, those policies were so gosh-darned great, then what’s to keep him from instituting those same policies if he was elected president?
