Bloomy (adj.): covered with fruit; fruity.
Michael Bloomberg, 78, the 12th richest person in the world with a net worth of $64 billion, is spending $millions in his quest to be the Democrat Party’s 2020 presidential nominee.
But Bloomberg is an elitist who has only contempt for the “little people”. Here’s the damning evidence:
(1) Contempt for American farmers:
In 2018, there were 2,029,200 farms in the United States, with farmers numbering in the millions, making them a significant voting bloc. But America’s elites, who cluster in coastal, metropolitan regions and in IT jobs, have only contempt for America’s farmers who feed and nourish us.
Their contempt is epitomized in their portrayal of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) –who was a farmer before he became a Congressman, with a bachelor’s degree in agricultural business and a master’s degree in agriculture from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo — as stupid and ignorant because he’s a farmer. Here are two examples (source: Victor Davis Hanson, The Case for Trump, p. 50):
- MSNBC analyst Elise Jordan asked why Republicans invest confidence in Devin Nunes, “a former dairy farmer who…has no idea what’s going on.”
- Roll Call‘s David Hawkings said: “The mismatch between his [Nunes’] backstory and his prominence [as then-House Intelligence Committee chairman] seems wholly incongruous and helps underscore the perception that Nunes is cavalierly playing at a very high-stakes game while in way over his head.”
Being the elitist that he is, billionaire Michael Bloomberg, too, portrayed farmers as stupid, lacking in “grey matter”. In a recently-surfaced 2016 video, Bloomberg said:
“The agrarian society lasted three thousand years, and we can teach processes. I can teach anybody…to be a farmer! It’s a process: you dig a hole, you put a seed in it, put dirt on top, add water, and out comes a corn. The information economy is fundamentally different, you have to a different skill-set, you have to have a lot more grey matter.”
In a 2011 PBS interview, then-NYC Mayor Bloomberg made remarks about blacks and Latinos which, if said by President Trump or a non-Democrat, would be trounced on as “Racist!” by the Left and their complicit media. Bloomberg said:
“Blacks and Latinos score terribly in school testing compared to whites and Asians. If you look at our jails, it’s predominantly minorities. Virtually all [perpetrators and victims of crime were minorities.] But, nevertheless, there’s this enormous cohort of black and Latino males aged, let’s say, 16 to 25 that don’t have jobs, don’t have any prospects, don’t know how to find jobs, don’t know that the — what their skill sets are, don’t know how to behave in the workplace, where they have to work collaboratively and collectively.”
(3) Hypocrite Nanny Bloomberg:
When he was nanny-mayor of New York, Bloomberg sought to ban — among many, many other bans — the sale of soda drinks larger than 16 ounces.
But for Michael Bloomberg — so typical of elitists — it’s always “Do as I say, not as I do”.
A case in point: Bloomberg is strongly pro-gun control, so much so that he founded the non-profit Everytown for Gun Safety to advocate and push for gun control, and match the National Rifle Association (NRA) in political influence. But like other pro-gun control elites, Bloomberg enjoys the protection of 17 armed personal security guards. He just doesn’t want you to have the same protection.
