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.”

Fox News Has Effectively Banned Trump From Appearing on Their Network

Decision at “highest levels” to shun former president in favor of DeSantis.

Fox News has effectively banned Donald Trump from appearing on their network in what seems to be part of a deliberate move to throw its support behind Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

A report by the New York Times noted that Trump has not appeared on Fox News in over 100 days in what seems to be part of an intentional effort to freeze out his 2024 candidacy.

Having last appeared on Sean Hannity’s show on April 13, Trump himself complained that his old friend “doesn’t seem to be paying him much attention anymore.”

According to Newsmax, this is a clear sign that Fox is “banning” Trump from the network altogether as it prepares to throw its full weight behind DeSantis.

The right-wing news outlet pointed to a video released by Fox News two weeks ago which showed ‘man on the street’ style interviews with Trump supporters who said they don’t want him to run again and “unanimously backed DeSantis for 2024.”

A decision has reportedly been made at “the highest levels” of Fox’s parent company and by the Murdoch family to shun Trump entirely.

“Fox News opposed Trump in 2016 when it mattered and right before the 2020 election the Daily Beast reported that Rupert Murdoch was predicting Trump will lose “in a landslide,” points out Chris Menahan.

“The Daily Beast credited “three people who have spoke with Murdoch” for the scoop but I suspect Murdoch just gave them the story himself.”

Trump has repeatedly suggested he will run for the presidency again in 2024, although many supporters expected him to announce his candidacy in July and that never happened.

The former president is still weighing up whether to make the announcement before or after this year’s mid-terms, which Republicans are expected to win handsomely.

Last month, an unlisted video discovered on YouTube showed Trump’s plane getting a new paint job, suggesting he could be about to announce his 2024 bid to return to the White House.

Trump reportedly told allies recently that if he is re-elected he will impose a “purge” of the deep state and right the wrongs of his first term.

As we highlighted earlier, Trump trolled Biden by suggesting he caught dementia, not COVID, and will retire part time to a nursing home.

Trump Trolls Biden by Suggesting He Contracted Dementia, Not COVID

“Get well soon, Joe!”

Donald Trump trolled Joe Biden by suggesting the president has contracted dementia, not COVID, and is considering moving to a nursing home.

Trump made the comments on Truth Social after it was revealed that the quadruple vaccinated Biden had caught COVID for the second time in the space of two weeks.

“Joe Biden’s second bout of Covid, sometimes referred to as the China Virus, was sadly misdiagnosed by his doctors. He instead has Dementia, but is happily recovering well,” Trump wrote.

“Joe is thinking of moving, part time, to one of those beautiful Wisconsin Nursing Homes, where almost 100% of the residents miraculously, and for the first time in history, had the strength and energy to vote — even if those votes were cast illegally,” he added.

Biden was released from isolation on Wednesday last week after testing negative for the virus and finishing a five-day course of Paxlovid.

However, on Saturday it was announced that Biden had again tested positive, although the White House claimed he was suffering no symptoms.

As we have documented, many top Democrats remain unconvinced that Biden can run successfully for re-election in 2024, citing his apparent cognitive impairment that only seems to be getting worse.

The New York Times published an article lamenting the fact that Biden’s double COVID diagnosis will “complicate his effort to turn his illness into a positive story” and delay his campaign trips in support of Democratic allies.

The newspaper also fretted that yet another example of Paxlovid causing a rebound COVID diagnosis will make Pfizer look bad.

The report admitted that the number of rebound cases caused by the drug is “likely significantly higher” than those acknowledged by Pfizer itself.

Democrat House Majority Leader Refuses to Commit to Supporting Biden 2024

Rats continue to flee the sinking ship.

Published

Democrat House majority leader Steny Hoyer (D-NY) refused to commit to supporting Biden 2024 in another sign that the president is being jettisoned as his cognitive abilities decline.

Hoyer made the comments during an appearance on Neil Cavuto’s Fox News show.

“Let me ask you this, do you think, as some in your party are saying, [Biden] should run again, he’s open to running again, he’s not too old to run again?” Cavuto asked Hoyer.

“Neil, I-I-I’m not gonna go there,” Hoyer replied. “You’re asking about problems today, this is about today. There’s an inflation problem.”

“Well, six out of 10 Democrats don’t think the President’s up to dealing with this today,” Cavuto interjected, but Hoyer refused to be drawn on the matter.

With the New York Times having published six hit pieces against Biden’s candidacy in the last two months, the rats appear to be fleeing the sinking ship.

Front and center as the reason is Biden’s declining cognitive abilities, with him stumbling into yet another verbal gaffe yesterday by saying he had cancer.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) also refused to say she’d support Biden running again during an appearance on CNN last month.

Yesterday, we highlighted the comments of Dick Morris, former top advisor to Bill Clinton, who sensationally claimed that Hillary is being lined up to replace Biden.

According to Morris, the Democratic establishment knows “that Biden can’t run again in 2024” due to his “quickly declining mental abilities” and the economic disaster he had presided over.

As we document in the video below, given how he has behaved over the last two years, the notion that Biden would come out on top of debates with Trump two years from now is absurd.
