    Trump Deletes Tweet Calling Bloomberg ‘TOTAL RACIST’ Over Same Stop-Frisk Policy He Backed

    It's not clear of GOPA leadership accidentally forgot about the 'race card' play/birther movement strategy to win 2016 electio in the heat of the current campiagn driven by various pro-diversity/social justice/minorities outreach initiatives.

    Trump Deletes Tweet Calling Bloomberg ‘TOTAL RACIST’ Over Very Same Stop & Frisk Policy He Backed in 2016

    By Ken MeyerFeb 11th, 2020

    President Donald Trump joined the political dog-pile on Mike Bloomberg’s recently unearthed remarks about the controversial stop and frisk policy he inherited, and continued, as mayor of New York City.
    The former New York City mayor faced condemnation over the unearthed audio in which he defended stop and frisk by saying cities need to send cops to minority neighborhoods “because that’s where all the crime is. And the way you get the guns out of the kids’ hands is to throw them up against the wall and frisk them.”

    Critics are calling the remarks evidence of Bloomberg’s racist views about criminal justice and law enforcement, and Trump joined in:

    Trump has deleted the tweet, but here’s a screenshot:

    This comes from the president who refuses to apologize for demanding the executions of the Central Park Five, refers to illegal immigrants as an “invasion” of rapists and criminals, spent years pushing the “birtherism” lie against former president Barack Obama, told four American congresswomen to “go back” to the countries they came from, said a judge couldn’t preside over a lawsuit against him because he’s “Mexican,” and engaged in racial demagoguery throughout his political life.

    Prez Trump and Civil Rights leaders go way back, with his sharply rising support among Dems/minorities lately he would be easily able to take on the former Mayor Bloomberg if it came to that in 2020 ( though looks unlikely at this point).

    Part of media seems to be going with somewhat similar narrative:

    Bloomberg Flunks the Wokeness Test

    Stop-and-frisk was awful. But to disqualify the former New York mayor from the presidency on that basis is to risk something more destructive: a second term for Trump.

    Is the American left about to prioritize virtue signaling over keeping an unqualified monomaniac from a second term as president? This is what would happen if Michael Bloomberg’s failed stop-and-frisk policy is treated as automatically disqualifying him from serious consideration as the Democratic presidential nominee.

    When Bloomberg was mayor of New York City, the police department dramatically expanded a policy under which officers stopped people on the streets to question them and pat them down for weapons. This draconian practice unforgivably stifled black and Latino life in New York City for years.

    Yet black America needs Bloomberg neither to have had a perfect past on race nor to “get it” 100 percent today—and neither does the rest of America. What black Americans want by overwhelming margins is for a moral and intelligent candidate to replace Donald Trump, and fetishizing wokeness above all other concerns may be antithetical to that paramount goal.

    Bloomberg, a billionaire who was first elected mayor in 2001 and served for a dozen years, arguably has a better chance of ousting Trump than does Bernie Sanders, a growly 78-year-old man of socialist label who recently had a heart attack. If only because of his bankroll, Bloomberg could easily outshine Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar as well. What rationality could there be in allowing grievances over stop-and-frisk to ease Trump’s quest for a second term? Who is afraid, for example, that Bloomberg would try to reimpose unduly punitive policies like that on black people now?

    Until recently, Bloomberg was unapologetic about stop-and-frisk. At the 2015 Aspen Ideas Festival, sponsored by the Aspen Institute and The Atlantic, Bloomberg stated that “95 percent of your murders and murderers and murder victims fit one MO. You can just take the description and xerox it and pass it out to all the cops. They are male minorities 15 to 25.” On why cops were stationed so disproportionately in minority neighborhoods, he mused, “Why’d we do it? Because that’s where all the crime is. And the way you should get the guns out of the kids’ hands is throw them against the wall and frisk them.”
    Claims that these statements are “racist” are exaggerated, illustrating how heedlessly overextended certain Americans’ usage of that word has become. Nothing in what Bloomberg said suggests a sense of black people as lesser beings. The phrasing is more bumptious than Trumptious. Bloomberg was indecorous.
    For example, Bloomberg’s justification for concentrating on black and Latino neighborhoods was sound. Those areas suffered from a disproportionate amount of


    Just as Trump embraced woke culture, Obama turns against it
