Michael Bloomberg Calls Colorado A "Rural and Roadless" Backwater For Challenging His Gun Control Agenda

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Submitted by Mike Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

I’ve noticed a bizarre trend this year. Northeast establishment politicians attacking the state of Colorado for its own internal decisions. In many ways this makes sense. Having lived in New York City most of my life, I know full well it is not the liberal haven it claims to be. Rather, over the past decade or so it has become a statist, oligarch-coddling, bankster hideout. My adopted state of Colorado is a libertarian paradise by comparison.

There may be a bit of envy or fear at play here, considering that a so-called “flyover” state has led the nation in the civil rights issue of marijuana legalization. While the coasts love to think of themselves as superior, they continue to foolishly imprison people for puffing on a benign plant. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie  characterized this backwards, ignorant attitude earlier this year perfectly when he foolishly criticized Colorado’s “quality of life,” which is without question amongst the best in the nation. I tore him apart in my piece: How Marijuana Legalization in America is Destroying Mexican Drug Cartel Business.

Moving along to today’s story, the man who puts his foot in his mouth more than pretty much anyone else, former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, called Colorado “rural” and “roadless” in a recent Rolling Stone article (which has since been pulled, but is supposed to be back up Monday) for the backlash against his gun control agenda from parts of the state.

In case you are unaware of the issue, I covered it last year in the post: NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg Spends $350,000 in a Failed Attempt to Sway Colorado Politics. It’s not the only time Colorado voters have rejected a Nanny Bloomberg intervention, which is perhaps why he harbors such bitterness toward the state. For example, last November: Colorado Rejects State Tax Increase Supported by Former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

As usual, Bloomberg throws a hissy fit when he doesn’t get his way. We learn from FOX31 Denver that:

DENVER — Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is popping off about Colorado in a new Rolling Stone interview and Republicans here, who have been blasting Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper for taking cues from Bloomberg on the state’s new gun laws, couldn’t be happier about it.

 

Asked about three Colorado Democrats being forced out of office by a recall movement that arose last summer after the legislature’s passage of laws expanding background checks and banning magazines of more than 15 rounds, legislation Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns lobbied hard for, the former mayor said this:

 

“The NRA went after two or three state Senators in a part of Colorado where I don’t think there’s roads. It’s as far rural as you can get. And, yes, they lost recall elections. I’m sorry for that. We tried to help ‘em. But the bottom line is, the law is on the books, and being enforced. You can get depressed about the progress, but on the other hand, you’re saving a lot of lives.”

 

The successful recalls last September occurred in Colorado Springs, the state’s second largest city, and Pueblo, its seventh largest.

First of all, Colorado Springs has a population of 430,000. Secondly, I have been to Colorado Springs and it makes most areas of New York City look like a third-world ghetto by comparison. Remember, this guy was considered a Presidential candidate. FOX31 Denver continues:

“Just for the record, Colorado Springs, Pueblo, and Jefferson County all have roads. I just traveled them,” said Bob Beauprez, Hickenlooper’s GOP challenger. “Michael Bloomberg’s infuriatingly ignorant remarks show how far removed he is from Colorado, and how wrong John Hickenlooper was to let Bloomberg force his radical agenda on Colorado.

 

“It’s astonishing that Gov. Hickenlooper would discuss important legislation with Mayor Bloomberg, who obviously doesn’t respect or understand the people of our great state, but refused to speak to Colorado sheriffs.  No wonder the governor lied to our state’s sheriffs, instead of admitting that he spoke to Mayor Bloomberg on multiple occasions.”

Now for the quote of the year:

“Not since New Jersey Governor Chris Christie attacked Colorado’s way of life has an east coaster gotten us so wrong,” said Udall spokesman James Owens. “Christie and Bloomberg should stick to what they know best: traffic jams and tiny sodas.

I would add: Financial theft, Oligarchs and Bailouts.

They hate us for our freedoms.

Except this time, it’s actually true.

Colorado, + 1!  A nice state, great people, libertarian, pretty 

New York, - 1.  Grimy, and all I want to do is just keep driving through to get out

Why do people need guns? Our police have guns and they are there to protect us all. The DHS has lots and lots of guns and we know they are here to protect us. I mean, they are named the Department of Homeland SECURITY, aren't they?

So how can people not feel safe and protected in this country? Let's just turn in all of our guns and ammo because the government is here to protect us and help us when we need them. Right? Right?? Forget those gang guys and other criminals. I've met a bunch of them when I was working for the Feds and they're nice guys at heart. They and we liberals have a lot in common, actually. We believe everything should be shared if you know what I mean.

"a perfect reason to completely avoid the Republican establishment"

I do not disagree with that sentiment, but it is also a perfect reason to completely avoid the Democrat establishment.

 

Bloomberg was a Democrat who switched only to snatch the mayor’s office away from the Republican immediately after 9/11.

His was a lifelong Democrat and will always be a Democrat in the most obvious of RINO clothing if he does not officially  jump back to the Jackass Party (not likely during the fallout of Obama).

Colorado is like every other state now a days in that a large metro area imposes it's will on the rest of the state. If the Denver metro area were to suddenly vanish there would not be a tear shed by those who live outside it.

I've been to upstate NY, downstate IL, Northern California and the folks living in those areas are quite different from their fellow citizens in the ratholes of NYC, Chicago, and anywhere else in California.

That's not entirely true. The Denver metro area gives Colorado some of the character it has -- there wouldn't be such a move to legalize marijuana without it. But it's a great state and Bloomberg is full of shit, that I think we can agree on.

Years ago a friend was putting together a crew to head up North and one of the stops was NYC. I declined to go, saying I would meet them at the endpoint weekend party planned in Niagra Falls.

My bud was flummoxed at my disinterest in going to NYC "If you do, you can say you've been there!"

Great reasoning.

I can pretty much say I've been anywhere, if it mattered, and not contribute or be ensnared by that festering pustule known as NYC.

Since then I've been to NYC no fewer than 11 times - as far as you know.

Probably less in Germany. But maybe more in the FSU because the Wehrmacht probably would have been too busy killing them in Germany to do Barbarossa.

Nowadays, thanks to computers, pre-purchase investigations and registration, the government knows where all the guns of the "law abiding citizens" are. It will be much easier for the SWAT teams to confiscate weapons in the future.

Hey Pladizow, how many more Palestinians would be alive today if they were all armed?

It is inconceivable that any reasonably intelligent person could study history and not understand the genocidal implications of confiscating privately held arms.  Therefore, one can only assume that they, in fact, WANT YOU DEAD.  Any reasonable person would take this personally.

Interesting all the CO praise in here. Obviously ahead of the curve on marijuana. But the core of this conversation is about gun control and CO gets a big facepalm for their recent actions on that. CO's libertarianism might be a tad overrated.

I lived in Denver for 5 years.  Denver is to CO as Austin is to TX, but without the other large cities to offset it.  CO Springs is largely a military town.  Big Air Force academy there, very conservative.  Much of CO outside the urban areas leans libertarian.   The weed push was successful because of the combination of liberals in Denver and Boulder, and libertarians elsewhere.    The gun control push was successful because of the concentration of liberal population in urban areas, mostly Denver, Boulder, and some others.   Like CA, I'm sure a lot of people who live outside of Denver/Boulder would like those cities to break off from the rest of the state.

yep... got more venison and backstrap then I could possibly consume at the annual Brown County state park thinning sessions... too many deer = a bunch of stupid fucking deer eating everything and passing on their stupid genes to the next generation... when you see a deer try to crawl _under_ a 4 ft. fence instead of just gliding over the top of it like normal, it's time to put chlorine in the gene pool...

Actually most deer will prefer to go under a fence. Even out in the sticks we check crossing points on barbed wire fences looking for fur on the low fence.

I used to watch a whole herd squat to get under a fence while bowhunting. Gun season maybe they go over, but gun season is not really normal behavior for them.

It was in my younger days, now the kids take up that time. Worth the trade off though.

Bowhunting was a different world. I saw more things and learned more about deer and animal behavior by being a fly on the wall (tree) more than anything else.  

I had one young doe look straight up at me and snort, then do the "russian soldier" dance where she would stomp her front hoof and wait for a reaction.  After I won the 15 minute staring contest she went back to feeding.  Cool stuff. Had a chickadee land on a knocked arrow and a red squirrel walk down my arm.  Fun times.

New York State is more than the New York City Metropolitan region. Get about an hour north and it is just as pretty as any other state. Bloomberg isn't too popular in 70% of the geographic area where people don't live on top of each other and the sun is blocked out by tall buildings.

It is the same in New Jersey. There is lots of beautiful country there too.

Perhaps they don't remember, or read it another way, that old TV commercial for Picante chili hot sauce from 2-3 decades ago, where you have 3-4 cowboys around a fire, trying the Picante and liking it, then being told it's from NYC, at which point they fairly howl, ""New York City?!?!?! ... New York City?!?!?! no way!!! like nothing good can come from there...and in this specific case they would be correct..

Personally I stick with the Constitution as written and recommend that we solve social problems through formation for wise use of liberty (ie. formation for what has worked in history, disdain for what has not) and wise government is there to protect freedom for personal and communal enterprise...preserve the heritage, in other words (including in that formation all who sincerely seek it, regardless of race, creed, etc. and those who don't want it but would live off those who do, well they can be helped to join the b-teams and c-teams located elsewhere in the world), and thereby we can preserve the republic free of its periodic lazy aberrations and strengthened by genuine diversity...if not we will surely lose it..

Arnold Toynbee's words of 1884 echo down the years, largely summing up our current challenge, following the recent globalization shift, and massive government intervention which is now a fact however anyone feels about it. Toynbee offered a filter for how to manage government's impact; we need such a filter for our times, to preserve both the liberty and responsibility of free citizens, and support where merited for public servants who really are good stewards (it is an honor to serve, if honor is being served).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arnold_Toynbee

According to Toynbee, "the essence of the Industrial Revolution" was "the substitution of competition for the medieval regulations which had previously controlled the production and distribution of wealth." Among its components were an "agrarian revolution" that produced "the alienation between farmer and labourer" and in the manufacturing world, the appearance of a "new class of great capitalist employers." "The old relations between masters and men disappeared, and a 'cash nexus' was substituted for the human tie." Summing up his interpretation, Toynbee wrote, "the Wealth of Nations and the steam-engine...destroyed the old world and built a new one." For Toynbee, this coupling seemed self-evident. Steam-powered factories, the Wealth of Nations, competition, the cash-nexus and the rise of pauperism formed part of a single phenomenon.

In response to this bleak scenario, Toynbee proposed a test for when the state should become involved in the regulation of an economic or social sphere of society to even the balance between industry and labor. He proposed the "Radical Creed," which, "as I understand it, is this: We have not abandoned our old belief in liberty, justice, and Self-help, but we say that under certain conditions the people cannot help themselves, and that then they should be helped by the State representing directly the whole people. In giving this State help, we make three conditions: first, the matter must be one of primary social importance; next, it must be proved to be practicable; thirdly, the State interference must not diminish self-reliance. Even if the chance should arise of removing a great social evil, nothing must be done to weaken those habits of individual self-reliance and voluntary association which have built up the greatness of the English people."

..."nothing must be done to weaken those habits of individual self-reliance and voluntary association which have built up the greatness of the [] people." ... well said..

Their evil agendas are simple to understand when you realize they are paramount to their personal plans of wealth retention. Otherwise, Buffet would still own his silver, and Gates would've told DC to fuck-off when they did their shake-down of his "monopoly" practices.

"Nice business you've got there. It'd be a shame if something were to happen to it."

So, they set up their foundation and lie to themselves that they are using their wealth to accomplish good in the world.

Don't let their footnote fool you, the number of firearms sold is much higher than the amount of NICS checks. For example, people with a concealed carry license are exempt from NICS checks and people purchasing multiple firearms only have a single check done for the entire purchase. A NICS check is only done when a firearm is purchased.  Late 2012 / early 2013 had a spike, and even afterwards, the trend is still very much upward. The number of NICS checks is the single best indicator of firearm sales. Hilarious how the FBI tries to downplay that. Considering the total NICS checks are 192 million, my best guess would be that the total firearms sales would be AT LEAST 250+ million. Take note that is only since 1998. All things considered, there are probably 400 - 500 million functioning firearms in civilian hands.
