Attribute to L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise

I have never liked or respected Michael R. Bloomberg, even the slightest bit.

This, you may remember, is the hyper-authoritarian specimen who, as Mayor of New York City, attempted to employ the full force of the law—33,000 badges, assorted pistols, revolvers, shotguns, nightsticks, tear gas, handcuffs, belly chains, maybe even brass knuckles and leaded saps—the whole toy-box of the coercive state—to tell you how much Coca Cola you may drink at any given time.

Either this demented creature is gleefully willing to have otherwise innocent individuals beaten up and killed over a triviality like that, or he is pathetically—most likely psychopathologically—ignorant of the fact that death and destruction is exactly what you’re asking for whenever you say, “There oughta be a law.”

More than practically anybody else today (except maybe George Soros and Tom Steyer), Bloomberg, who rolls around, Scrooge McDucklike, in about 51 billion simoleons, meets Teddy Roosevelt’s definition of “malefactor of great wealth.” So do George and Tom, by the way.

Now, having presided over the despicable civic wreckage—the unspeakable chaos and violence and loss—that inevitably results whenever masses of citizens are systematically and illegally denied the free exercise of their Constitutional rights, after promoting fascistic “stop and frisk” policies among the police, after founding (and largely failing with) phoney-baloney lash-ups like “Mayors against Illegal Guns” (in fact, Bloomberg yearns to make all guns illegal—except those in the clutches of his security guards), “Everytown for Gun Safety” (safety has nothing to do with Bloomberg’s evil objectives) and the “March For Our Lives” (Davey Hogg’s George Sorosist front) he has finally revealed his actual goal.

While speaking recently* to an obscenely high-paying audience at Colorado’s Aspen Institute—the spawning-ground of virtually every loopy, piss-witted bonnet-bee ever given flight in the People’s Republic of Calizuela—Bloomberg argued that the key to big city domestic tranquility lies in forcibly disarming vast numbers of young, urban black men “to keep them alive”. (Just imagine the death and destruction caused by trying to enforce this law! Arm-twisters like Bloomberg always claim that the broken wrist was “for your own good”.) Like Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership’s late founder Aaron Zelman’s favorite target, Abe Foxman formerly of the Anti-Defamation League, Bloomberg has already been accused of ignoring the lessons of the Holocaust and betraying his own heritage of genocide survival by advocating the disarmament of others, including Jews.

To which we all say, “Never Again—Not Even The First Time!”

Now we know, from out of the devil’s own mouth, that the heritage Bloomberg wishes to revive and re-impose on what he sees as his former chattel is that of the old, thoroughly Democrat, slave-owning, whipping, and lynching South. Former radio talk show host Ken Hamblin, the “Black Avenger”, used to say that it’s the ambition of every liberal to own his own Negro, and black conservative columnist Candace Owens has accused the left of exactly the same thing, to get black voters “back on the plantation”. Now Bloomberg wants to initiate this re-enslaving process by rendering its intended victims physically helpless against liberal aggression.

I wouldn’t want to claim any ability to read people’s minds—that’s a liberal tendency—but my guess is that, given this over-moneyed bucket-head’s bias against conservative and libertarian thought, he believes that offering to strip African Americans of their means of self-defense will strike a chord with those of us he falsely imagines are as bigoted as he is.

“First they came for the gangstas …”

Never one to be swayed by the mere will of the people—who have repeatedly rejected victim disarmament at the polls, in Congress, and in the courts, and who have bought millions of guns every time, over the past twenty years that Barack Obama and his collectivist ilk have opened their butt-stupid yaps and threatened the fundamental right to own and carry weapons, the New York billionaire autocrat also took a series of cheap, spurious shots against the recent popular legalization of marijuana in Colorado and elsewhere.

What the creature actually detests—and fears, I would surmise—is individuals who won’t obey him.
