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.”

Biden Jokes About People Thinking He’s “Stupid” Then Makes Another Stupid Verbal Gaffe

It never ends.

Published

During an event in Springfield, Virginia, Joe Biden joked about people thinking he was “stupid” before making yet another embarrassing verbal gaffe.

The president made the remarks while addressing the state of the economy.

“I uh, I said that, uh, when I was seeking the nomination I said, ‘Take a seat, everybody!’ and there wasn’t a single chair in the place,” joked the 80-year-old.

“They said, ‘That Biden really is stupid, he really doesn’t know a…” he added.

Biden then asked “where’s Doug?” in reference to Rep. Don Beyer, but had difficulty finding him (presumably because he’s not called Doug).

During the same speech, Biden then rather awkwardly proved once again why people have questioned his cognitive ability.

“No president added more to the debt in four years than my president,” Biden told the crowd at the Steamfitters Local 602 union hall.

“I-I misspoke. Twenty-five percent of our country’s entire debt,” he quickly corrected himself.

Oh dear.

Last year, we highlighted the comments of former White House physician Ronny Jackson, who said that Joe Biden “won’t finish his term” because “his mind is too far gone.”

Speculation has been raging for a long time that prominent Democrats are trying to prevent Biden from running again in 2024.

During a discussion on his podcast earlier this month, Joe Rogan suggested the latest scandals surrounding Joe Biden indicated that top Democrats are “trying to get rid of him.”

Biden would be in his mid-80’s by the time he left the White House if he won again in 2024.

Musk’s Father: “I’m Really Afraid Something Might Happen to Elon”

Says son is “a bit naïve about the enemies he’s making.”

Elon Musk’s father says he is afraid “something might happen” to his son, asserting that the billionaire is “a bit naïve about the enemies he’s making” in relation to the release of the Twitter files.

Over the past several weeks, Musk has spearheaded the release of innumerable internal communications proving the White House, the federal government and giant pharmaceutical corporations worked directly with the old guard at Twitter to censor information and ban prominent users.

Although the legacy media has done its best to ignore the bombshell revelations, the Twitter files have nonetheless embarrassed many powerful individuals.

Retired engineer Errol Musk told the Sun newspaper that he thinks his son is being rather blasé about the potential backlash he may receive for exposing the establishment.

“I’m really afraid that something might happen to Elon, even though he has about 100 security guards around him,” Errol warned, noting that his son was being “a bit naïve about the enemies he’s making, especially with the Twitter Files.”

It appears that the feeling is very much mutual, with Elon Musk fearing that someone may try to harm or kidnap his father as revenge for his political stances.

The younger Musk “decided, after the recent threats against him, that I need protection as well,” Errol told the Sun, revealing that his home has undergone a “first class” security system upgrade.

Having had his home broken into four times in the last year alone, the property is now “completely secure,” with an electric fence, nine security cameras rolling 24/7 that Musk can access from his phone, as well as “around-the-clock monitoring by guards who are armed to the teeth.”

“If they kidnap one of us, it will be the quickest $20 million anybody’s ever made in their life,” said the 76-year-old, who previously shot three armed home invaders in 1998.

“The risk of something bad happening or literally even being shot is quite significant,” said Errol, adding, “It’s not that hard to kill me if somebody wanted to, so hopefully they don’t.”

As we previously highlighted, last month Musk revealed that he has increased his personal security in response to concerns over his safety following the release of the first dump of ‘Twitter files’.

“The risk of something happening to me is quite significant,” said the billionaire.

Sen. Josh Hawley: Time to “Bury” Republican Party, “Build Something New”

Calls for massive reform after mid-terms failure.

After a highly disappointing performance in the mid-term elections, Senator Josh Hawley says it’s time to “bury” the old Republican Party and “build something new.”

Although Republicans had a good chance of capturing the Senate, it now appears as though they could end up losing a seat following defeats in Arizona and Nevada, with a run off in Georgia to follow next month.

They are also only set to win the House with a slim majority, far from the relatively easy win predicted, as forecasts of a “red wave” completely failed to materialize.

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) reacted to the outcome by calling for massive reform.

“The old party is dead. Time to bury it. Build something new,” Hawley tweeted in response to Republican Adam Laxalt losing the Nevada Senate race to Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto’s (D-NV).

Hawley’s demand for change arrives after he indicated he would not support Sen. Mitch McConnell for Senate GOP leadership.

“I don’t imagine I will, no,” Hawley said, adding, “I’m not sure if any other senator will run or not. Nobody’s indicated they would. But my view is that we need new leadership in that position.”

Hawley has been vocal on a number of advocacy issues that the Republican establishment has largely ignored, including breaking up Big Tech, calling for the U.S. to withdraw from the WTO, and creating tax credits for working class families.

Meanwhile, President Trump is still set to announce his run for presidency in 2024 this week, despite many Republicans blaming his interventions for their poor mid-term performance.

Former Trump adviser Jason Miller says the billionaire will ignore calls for him to delay the announcement.

“President Trump is going to announce on Tuesday that he’s running for president. And it’s going to be a very professional, very buttoned-up announcement,” said Mr Miller.

Miller says Trump told him while playing golf, “Of course I’m running. I’m going to do this, and I want to make sure people know that I’m fired up.”
