After reading a couple of reports, I couldn’t help but wonder if former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has plans to eventually control the American people?
First, I was reading about Sarah Palin’s address to the NRA convention held at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis. Around 13,000 people were in attendance when Palin told them:
“[They are] needed now more than ever because every day, we are seeing more and more efforts to strip away our Second Amendment rights.”
“They are trying, though. You know who ‘they’ are? If you control oil, you control an economy. If you control money, you control commerce.”
“But if you control arms, you control the people, and that is what they’re trying to do.”
Then I read about former Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge resigning from Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety group. I surprised at first that he was even part of the group since Ridge was a somewhat conservative Republican. Upon his resignation from the group, Ridge stated:
“When I signed on as an adviser to Everytown, I looked forward to a thoughtful and provocative discussion about the toll gun violence takes on Americans. After consultation with Everytown, I have decided that I am uncomfortable with their expected electoral work.”
Everytown expressed disappointment with Ridge’s resignation. They issued a statement saying:
“Our organization represents the views of the majority of Americans who support reasonable laws to keep families safe. When necessary, that will mean taking on the gun lobby in state capitols and at the ballot box.”
Earlier this month, Mark Boughton, the Republican Mayor of Danbury, Connecticut resigned from Bloomberg’s Mayor’s Against Illegal Guns. He told the local media:
“It’s really become about Bloomberg instead of going after illegal guns. Mike Bloomberg overwhelms the entire group. I think its mission has been lost.”
Over the past couple of years, Bloomberg has spent several million dollars of his own money trying to push anti-gun and anti-Second Amendment bills through various state legislatures and to get anti-gun politicians elected. Now he has announced that he will be using $50 million of his own money to promote stricter gun control laws and help anti-gun people like himself get elected.
$50 million sounds like a lot to you and me, but when you’re worth more than $33 billion and considered to be within the top 12 richest people in the US, it only amounts to 0.15% of his fortune. That would be like you having a net worth of $100,000 and donating $150 towards such an effort.
Bloomberg already looked into running for president in 2008 as an Independent. To demonstrate just how politically unstable he is, Bloomberg started out as a Democrat. In 2001, he switched to Republican and in 2007 he switched again, this time to Independent. So who really knows what he is other than a gun hating liberal who wants to disarm the American people and remove the Second Amendment from the Bill of Rights.
Watching and listening to Bloomberg and his anti-gun campaign, and thinking about what Palin said to the NRA, I couldn’t help but wonder if Bloomberg is planning to use his fortune to disarm Americans and thus control them. You know, something like what Adolf Hitler did in Germany in the 1930s.
Think about it. As Mayor of New York, he tried to control what the people ate and drank along with the use of pain medications in hospitals. He has the perfect disposition for a dictator, but he may just have some competition from Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton for that title.
