Bloomberg Gets Cancelled For Old Speech Saying Minorities are Overrepresented in Crime Statistics

Despite him being essentially correct.

Published

Presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg is facing accusations of racism for saying minorities are overrepresented in crime statistics, despite official numbers proving him correct.

With polling for New Hampshire showing Bloomberg up in second behind Joe Biden, a clip resurfaced from a talk Bloomberg gave to the Aspen Institute in 2015 where he discussed ‘stop and frisk’.

“Ninety-five percent of murders — murderers and murder victims fit one M.O. You can just take a description, Xerox it, and pass it out to all the cops,” Bloomberg can be heard saying. “They are male, minorities, 16-25. That’s true in New York, that’s true in virtually every city (inaudible). And that’s where the real crime is. You’ve got to get the guns out of the hands of people that are getting killed.”

The former New York Mayor was subsequently dogpiled by both leftists and conservatives as #BloombergIsRacist began trending on Twitter.

While Bloomberg is obviously being hyperbolic in claiming that “ninety-five percent of murders” are committed by minorities, his general point that blacks and other minorities per capita are overrepresented in violent crime statistics is manifestly provable.

According to the Bureau of Justice statistics, black offenders committed 52 per cent of homicides recorded in the data between 1980 and 2008.

Black people make up roughly 13 per cent of the U.S. population. Since black men and not black women commit the vast majority of homicides, that means 52 per cent of the homicides are being committed by roughly 6.5 per cent of the population.

FBI figures also show that 38.5 per cent of people arrested for murder, manslaughter, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault were black, again mostly black males – meaning that 38.5 per cent of such crimes are being committed by roughly 6.5 per cent of the population.

93 per cent of black homicide victims were also killed by other black people.

In another clip which also resurfaced, Bloomberg makes the point that these numbers are derived from victim reporting, which debunks the notion that police officers are unfairly framing black people as a result of institutional racism.

As Matt Walsh points out, many prominent pro-Trump personalities joined the attack on Bloomberg despite him being correct on the “statistical realities of violent crime.”

Trump himself openly supported stop and frisk during his 2016 presidential campaign.

Back in 2013, Trump also tweeted, “Sadly, the overwhelming amount of violent crime in our major cities is committed by blacks and hispanics.”

Democrats Moving Away From Lockdown Restrictions Over Fears of Being Crushed Politically

“People have run out of patience.”

In response to plummeting approval ratings, Democrats are now moving away from lockdown policies they previously vehemently advocated over fears about being wiped out politically.

That’s according to a new report by Politico, which notes how, “Omicron is surging — and Democrats aren’t shutting things down this time.”

“From New York to California, Democratic mayors and governors are fighting to keep schools and businesses open with an urgency they haven’t flexed before in the pandemic,” writes Lisa Kashinsky.

That sea change likely has a lot to do with Republicans securing a November clean sweep of the House, as well as the offices of governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general in Virginia.

Republican Glenn Youngkin appealed to parents who were angry over school closures and other issues such as mask mandates, while New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy came closer to defeat than expected over frustrations relating to COVID restrictions.

Big events such as the Super Bowl in L.A. will now go ahead, while the likes of Fauci and Biden refrained from telling Americans to cancel holiday plans despite record case numbers caused by Omicron.

“Democrats went further than most Republicans in shutting down businesses, enforcing social distancing and requiring masks to tame the spread of the virus — and were initially rewarded politically for their caution,” states the report.

“But as the nation trudges into a third pandemic year in the grips of another variant-fueled wave, blue state leaders faced with exhausted and frustrated voters have lost the stomach for strict shutdowns.”

According to Bob Blendon, a polling and political strategy expert at the Harvard T.H. Chan School, Democrats “see an upcoming election, they see backlashes.”

“They can’t close things down, and there is no public tolerance for serious disruptions in people’s lives. People have run out of patience,” said Blendon.

Polling has also been dreadful for Democrats, with Biden’s approval rating sinking to a new low as just 15.5% of Americans say they trust the president when it comes to information about COVID-19.

“Everything our government tried to contain this virus has failed and now, thanks to Omicron, everyone is getting infected with a “live covid vaccine” that’s relatively mild and actually works,” comments Chris Menahan.

“With the combination of Omicron infecting millions and Democrats getting wiped out politically there’s a decent chance we may actually be able to move on from this hysteria and get on with life.”

Biden’s Approval Rating Drops to New Record Low

Dissatisfaction with his handling of the economy key as inflation soars.

Published

Joe Biden’s approval rating has dropped to a new record low, with just 33 per cent of Americans supporting the president, a massive drop of 11 points from last month.

A Quinnipiac University poll found that 53 per cent disapprove of the job Biden is doing, while around 13 per cent are not sure about him.

According to the survey, 49 per cent believe Biden is dividing the country, thereby breaking his inauguration promise, while 42 per cent believe he is working to unite it.

Meanwhile, with Trump expected to run again in 2024, a YouGov poll found that the former president was more admired than Biden or the Pope.

A poll conducted Redfield & Wilton Strategies at the end of December found that Trump would beat Biden by 6 points if the election were held now.

Record COVID cases, spiraling crime rates and a continued failure to secure the borders certainly aren’t helping Biden.

However, the economy is clearly the primary driver behind the dissatisfaction, with 57 per cent of poll respondents disapproving of Biden’s handling of it.

Inflation hit a 39-year high in December, with supply chain and worker shortages causing the cost of staples such as food, rent and cars to skyrocket.

While Americans are being told the official rate of inflation is 7 per cent, the actual percentage rise of products and services is far higher.

Crossbow-Armed Man Tried to Assassinate Queen Over ‘Racial Discrimination’

Culprit sectioned under Mental Health Act.

Published

The crossbow-armed man who tried to assassinate Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle on Christmas Day said he was motivated by anger over colonialism and racial discrimination.

A video of Jaswant Singh Chail posted just 24 minutes before his assassination attempt shows the culprit ranting in a distorted voice.

The suspect, who is seen wearing a white mask and a black hoodie, states, “I’m sorry, I’m sorry for what I’ve done and what I will do. I will attempt to assassinate Elizabeth, queen of the Royal Family.”

He goes on to state that the attack is “revenge” for the 1919 Amritsar massacre, which took place 7 years before Queen Elizabeth was even born.

“It’s also revenge for those who have been killed, humiliated and discriminated on because of their race,” he added.

Chail got to within 500 meters of the Queen’s apartments at Windsor Castle before he was apprehended by armed officers.

The culprit had scaled a spiked outer wall using a rope ladder, immediately triggering alarms as he was spotted on surveillance cameras.

The Queen was having breakfast at the time of the incident and was immediately informed by police about the attempted attack.

The intruder, who is an Indian Sikh, was sectioned the Mental Health Act and the “mental health” explanation appears to be the dominant narrative despite the culprit himself directly stating his motive for the attempted assassination.

During the 1919 Jallianwala Bagh Massacre, also known as the Massacre of Amritsar, colonial troops killed around 379 people during a protest, injuring 1200 more.
