Mayor-forLife Bloomberg: Shred the Constitution

It’s terrible that four people were killed in Boston last week. But for that should we ditch the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights?

That’s what New York Mayor-for-Life Michael Bloomberg insists:

“The people who are worried about privacy have a legitimate worry. But we live in a complex world where you’re going to have to have a level of security greater than you did back in the olden days, if you will. And our laws and our interpretation of the Constitution, I think, have to change.”

Actually, given the events of the last century — the Nazi and communist mass murders of tens of millions of people — we need our constitutional protections more than ever. Compared to those atrocities, the crimes of King George the III — taxing tea and stamps, etc. — were the misdemeanors of a pickpocket.

If recent history has taught us anything, it’s that governments are infinitely more dangerous than even the worst criminals. After all, it was just 20 years ago that the government itself murdered 70 people, including about 20 children and 20 blacks, in the Waco Inferno (shown in the pictures nearby).

More Bloomberg:

Look, we live in a very dangerous world. We know there are people who want to take away our freedoms. New Yorkers probably know that as much if not more than anybody else after the terrible tragedy of 9/11.”

waco tanksYes, and the main agent taking away our freedoms after 9/11 was the government itself, with the imposition of the unconstitutional USA “PATRIOT” Act, which was treason to our freedoms.  

“We have to understand that in the world going forward, we’re going to have more cameras and that kind of stuff. That’s good in some sense, but it’s different from what we are used to.

But it was private cameras in Boston that helped finger the alleged perpetrators, not government cameras. And a private citizen located the second suspect.

“Clearly the  Supreme Court has recognized that you have to have different interpretations of the Second Amendment and what it applies to and reasonable gun laws … Here we’re going to to have to live with reasonable levels of security.”

The last was a reference, according to the article, to the use of “magnetometers to catch weapons in city schools.” Which shows how modern schools now are prisons.

And he was referring to his obsession with gun control. He wants to re-interpret our Second Amendment “right to keep and bear arms” to mean we can’t.

He also can say such things because he’s immensely wealthy, according to Forbes the 13th richest person in the universe at $27 billion. He now is guarded by New York City police. But if he ever stops being mayor-for-life, he’ll have private guards. And can take unusual precautions to protect his own privacy, such as traveling to those private islands featured on the Wealth Channel.

You, however, cannot. He wants to take your guns, leaving you defenseless against terrorists. And he wants the government ceaselessly to spy on your every move.

He should call himself Mayor Orwell.
