“Bloomberg dismisses Colo. Springs, Pueblo as roadless, rural backwaters,” Fox 31 Denver reported Thursday, quoting from an approving Rolling Stone interview, where the billionaire cult leader claimed he “isn’t afraid of the NRA.”
Rolling Stone. Who’da thunk?
They evidently pulled the article that would embarrass their ally in readership disarmament until others noticed and compounded the awkwardness of the situation.
With all those armed bodyguards in his employ who are empowered to carry where ordinary mortals may not, let’s hope he’s not afraid of peaceable NRA members, especially when he has no compunction about bypassing the laws of other countries when it’s his precious hindquarters presumed on the line. Funny, if a person of lesser means took private armed self-defense precautions, Bloomberg’s minions would dismiss him as a “vigilante” and as “paranoid,” especially since the AstroTurf bankroller’s handmaiden says such incidents “never happen.”
But back to his offending comment (this time around):
“The NRA went after two or three state Senators in a part of Colorado where I don't think there's roads,” he claimed, making excuses for getting clobbered at the polls by dismissing the voters there as slack-jawed yokels. “It's as far rural as you can get. And, yes, they lost recall elections.”
“Colorado Springs and Pueblo are the second and seventh largest cities in the state, respectively,” columnist Michelle Malkin noted in a well-deserved public excoriation of “Snotty Bloomberg,” recalling his record of defective stewardship on New York City’s roads, infrastructure, snow removal and the like.
Even doctrinaire Democrats recoiled, condemning the big city Easterner’s remarks as evidence that he “has no understanding of Colorado values.”
Actually, Bloomberg, like the control über alles crowd he represents, has no understanding of anything beyond a narcissistic addiction to having his way because he knows best. He has the money to push around no shortage of sycophants and lickspittles eager to ingratiate themselves to Master for a place at his table -- or feet. As such, that’s where he would place the rest of us, whether we would prostrate ourselves there or not.
How very intolerant, to play the rube card. How very bigoted. How very backward and – wouldn't urban sophisticates call it “provincial”? It’s not surprising. It’s exactly what we have come to expect from "forward leaners" with their insufferable air of superiority, and their quickness (and eagerness) to dismiss those clinging to flyover ways as lesser beings.
The reality is, as they’ve shown us time and again, and never once refuted, with “progressives,” every day is Opposite Day.
Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.
The thing these elite champions of the common man can’t seem to finesse (lie their way) around is that there is no more true egalitarian power sharing arrangement than that provided for in the Second Amendment. So what is it they demand? Its antithesis, a monopoly of violence...
The observable result: Tyranny produces stagnation and retrograde degeneracy. The future the totalitarians have in mind will be trapped behind guard towers and concertina for anyone who slips his collar of obedience.
The alternative future that freedom offers...?
"Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads."
And we certainly won’t need a snotty sociopath, with a sick compulsion to dictate what he will allow the rest of us to have.
Thanks for the unexpected gift, Mike. Keep it up. Open your krovvy rot some more.
