Michael Bloomberg Says Americans too Stupid to Understand Transgender Rights

Michael Bloomberg recently told a British audience that Americans just aren’t smart enough to understand transgender rights.

Published

A three-year-old video of Michael Bloomberg resurfaced where he is seen telling a British audience that Americans just aren’t smart enough to understand transgender rights.

In the resurfaced video, the billionaire Democrat candidate for president is seen telling leftists that “trans rights” is a losing issue in the Midwest. But his reason for why that is could not be more condescending.

Bloomberg made his comments while addressing the Saïd Business School at Oxford, England, in 2016, where he insisted that the issue of transgenderism — especially in America’s schools — is a loser, especially in the Midwest.

Explaining his position on transgenderism, Bloomberg said, that only the “intelligentsia” can understand why “some man wearing a dress should be in a locker room with their daughter.” But he appeared to take this position under the assumption that people in the Midwest just aren’t smart enough to grasp the facts.

“We, the intelligentsia — people who could make it into this room — we believe in a lot of things in terms of equality, and protecting individual rights, that make no sense to the vast bulk of people,” Bloomberg said.

“They’re not opposed to you having some rights,” he added, “But there’s a fundamental disconnect between us believing that the rights of the individual come first and the general belief around the world…. that the rights of society come first,” he added.

From there, Bloomberg directed the British audience to the growing issue of transgender bathrooms that had been roiling the U.S. at the time and added that only a true salesman can sell transgenderism to the Midwest.

“If you want to know if someone is a good salesman,” he said, “give him the job of going to the Midwest and picking a town, and selling to that town the concept that some man wearing a dress should be in a locker room with their daughter. If you can sell that, you can sell anything.”

“I mean they [people in the Midwest] just look at you and say, ‘what on earth are you talking about’?”

Bloomberg went on to say that, unlike gay marriage, trans rights are also a losing issue in the Midwest because you can’t really make it a “family issue.”

With another comment that should vex the left, Bloomberg also claimed that the poor in the U.S. is not really a pressing issue because even the poor have cars, cell phones, and “72-inch TV screens,” not just in the U.S.A., but most of the world.

Muslim Congresswoman Omar Calls for ‘Dismantling’ of the United States

On Tuesday, Muslim Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar called for the “dismantling” of the entire American way of life.

On Tuesday, Muslim Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar called for the “dismantling” of the entire American way of life as a way to mollify the radical Black Lives Matter movement.

Speaking in Washington D.C., the Minnesota Rep. said that defunding the police was not enough and that every part of America had to be torn down to suit her dangerous anti-Americanism.

“As long as our economy and political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shut out, we will perpetuate this inequality,” Omar said. “We cannot stop at criminal justice system. We must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.”

U.S. Sen. Marsha Blackburn was astonished at Omar’s comments and called for Omar to resign.

“Ilhan Omar took an oath to defend and protect the Constitution, not shred it. Omar and her Marxist comrades are a threat to our Democracy. Omar should resign,” Blackburn wrote.

Many others were equally outraged:

Racist College Democrats Dump Latino President Because She Isn’t Black

The Hispanic president of the College Democrats of America was ousted from her position solely because she isn’t black.

Published

on

The Hispanic president of the College Democrats of America was ousted last month from her position solely because she isn’t black.

Last week, at the end of June, Tikaela Guido was removed from her role as president of the college organization that boasts 500 chapters and 47 state federations. Before leaving, Guido appointed Matthew Nowling, the group’s former communications director, to be vice president because he is black.

As it happens, Nowling accused Guido of being a racist against him. She treated him badly, Nowling exclaimed. Soon calls for Guido to resign began flooding the organization. Not only that, but calls were made for her to never try to run for any position with the organization again.

At first, the Hispanic woman tried to defend herself against charges of racism.

“What I do not stand for is being labeled a racist or complacent in racism. The gross mischaracterization that I contributed to this environment is unequivocally false. Moreover, these unsubstantiated claims of racism towards me have an appearance of being used as a front for personal disagreements, which is morally reprehensible,” she wrote on an email to the membership.

Eventually, Guido did resign and in doing so she appointed Nowling to be her successor.

Amusingly, Guido ultimately slobbered all over herself to apologize for her “racism.”

In an email she said, “I may not be the person that membership feels represents them currently, and I may need to make space for someone who does,” later adding she would “slow down, reflect on my mistakes and spend time with family.”

Nowling crowed about his victory saying any other group may “have been brushed under the rug, and I would have simply resigned and nothing would have changed.” He added, “This is not just a College Democrats of America thing. This is a broader societal issue, and I just happened to have a platform where when I spoke out about it, people took action.”

The wokesters are eating their own, folks.

… And it’s hilarious.

Potential Biden VP Pick Signals Openness To Tearing Down Statues Of Founding Fathers

Potential Biden VP Pick Signals Openness To Tearing Down Statues Of Founding Fathers

Sen. Tammy Duckworth a potential running mate for Joe Biden, signaled that she was open to tearing down statues of some of America’s founding fathers.

“Senator, I know that you support change in the name of military bases named after Confederate leaders,” CNN’s Bash said. “But there are leaders like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson who were slave owners, and some people are demanding that their monuments come down, too. So, in your view, where does it end? Should statues, for example, of George Washington come down?”

“Well, let me just say that we should start off by having a national dialogue on it at some point,” Tammy Duckworth responded.

She continued by attacking President Donald Trump, saying that Trump has “spent all his time talking about dead traitors.”

“So, that might be true, but George Washington, I don’t think anybody would call him a traitor,” Bash responded. “And there are moves by some to remove statues of him. Is that a good idea?”

“I think we should listen to everybody,” Tammy Duckworth responded. “I think we should listen to the argument there.”

NEXT: California Erasing John Wayne’s Name from Orange County Airport

California Democrats are moving to erase famed tough guy actor John Wayne’s name from the John Wayne Airport in Orange County.

California Democrats are moving to erase famed tough guy actor John Wayne’s name from the John Wayne Airport in Orange County.

The commiecrats say that an interview Wayne did with Playboy magazine in 1971 is enough reason to cancel the Duke because he said “racist and homophobic” things at the time.

Leftists have been waving the 1971 interview around for decades as proof that John Wayne was evil. But, now that we are in a climate of destroying all of American history, the topic is back at the forefront once again.

Indeed, this time the county Democrat Party is the one making the demands, not just the prosaic and ill-informed, stray, leftist activists of days past.

“The Democratic Party of Orange County condemns John Wayne’s racist and bigoted statements, and calls for John Wayne’s name and likeness to be removed from the Orange County airport, and calls on the OC Board of Supervisors to restore its original name: Orange County Airport,” a resolution, passed Friday, said.

One of The Duke’s comments contained his ideas of who should and should not be running things.

“I believe in white supremacy until the blacks are educated to a point of responsibility. I don’t believe in giving authority and positions of leadership and judgment to irresponsible people,” he said.

He then added, “I don’t feel guilty about the fact that five or 10 generations ago these people were slaves.”

The Democratic resolution goes on pandering to say there is now a “national movement to remove white supremacist symbols and names is reshaping American institutions, monuments, businesses, nonprofits, sports leagues and teams, as it is widely recognized that racist symbols produce lasting physical and psychological stress and trauma particularly to Black communities, people of color and other oppressed groups, and the removal of racist symbols provides a necessary process for communities to remember historic acts of violence and recognize victims of oppression.”

Wayne lived in Orange County for the last 20, or so, years of his adult life, settling in Newport Beach in the early 1960s. He was also heavily involved in county politics as a Republican.

Flashback Video: Joe Biden Drops The N Word

A 1985 clip of Joe Biden is going viral online where he says the n-word twice in during a confirmation hearing.

Here’s the clip:

Longer clip:

You can see clearly that Biden is reading something, so these aren’t his own words.

That doesn’t matter.

Cancel Culture leftists don’t care about context and intent doesn’t matter.

It made no difference to them that both Washington and Jefferson wrote that they wanted abolition, just that they were slave owners and profited from slavery. That’s why monuments must come down.

To provide the proper context for Biden’s remarks, this was during the confirmation hearing of William Bradford Reynolds who was being appointed as Assistant Attorney General. Democrats had accused Reynolds of siding with bigots and rolling back racial progress. At one point, Biden quoted a complaint to Reynolds that used the n-word twice. –Clash Daily

Sen. Joseph Biden (D., Del.) questioned Reynolds about his handling of Louisiana`s congressional redistricting, where the state legislature initially had approved a plan that created a predominantly black district in New Orleans. But because of opposition from former Gov. David Treen and white legislators, the plan was replaced by one that split the black district and preserved the seat of a GOP congressman.

Biden pointed out that Reynolds was aware of complaints voiced by a key state legislator, whom the senator quoted as saying ”we already have a nigger mayor (in New Orleans); we don`t need another nigger big shot.”

Rogan: ‘News Media On The Left Has Completely Ignored Joe Biden’s “Cognitive Decline”

Published

on

By

“The Joe Rogan Experience” host Joe Rogan said that left-wing news media has “completely ignored” remarks by presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden allegedly showing that Biden is in “some kind of cognitive decline.”

“I’m seeing this one thing that I keep hearing over and over again from people on the Left that disturbs me – it’s this concession that what you’re voting for is the Cabinet, you’re voting for the Supreme Court, you’re voting for someone who’s not going to reverse Roe vs. Wade,” Rogan, who made positive comments about Bernie Sanders during the primary, said. “That’s what I keep hearing from my friends on the Left. They’ve basically just made this concession in their head like, ‘Hey, you know, this is what I’m voting for now.’ And the news media on the Left has completely ignored all of these Biden speeches that clearly show some sort of cognitive decline.”

“Like David Pakman, who I respect a lot, he was kind of arguing against it, that it didn’t show his decline,” Joe Rogan continued. “I was trying to look at it in a way that made sense, I was trying to be rational about it. I’m like, ‘Okay, maybe he’s just exhausted, or maybe this, or maybe it’s pressure.’”

“Sometimes people get really tongue-tied and panic under pressure, and words come out all f**ked up. That is possible. But there’s a trend,” Rogan continued. “If you go back to when he was a younger man, that trend didn’t exist. You’re seeing a change. The idea that as you get older you become less comfortable with the media, less comfortable with speaking publicly, that doesn’t jive with me. That doesn’t make any sense.”

Scientist Bret Weinstein, a guest on the show, responded: “I agree with you. I see a decline. But irrespective of what that is, Joe Biden is an influence peddler. He’s not an idea guy, right? He’s the same idea as Hillary Clinton in a different morphology. … How dare the Democratic Party do this to us again at this moment.”

Nancy Pelosi Cleanses House by Eliminating Historic Portraits of Southerners

Comrade Speaker Pelosi is cleansing the House of Representatives of its history by eliminating the portraits of past southern members.

Published

Comrade Speaker Pelosi is cleansing the House of Representatives of its history by eliminating the portraits of past southern members.

Speaker Pelosi had four portraits of former House Speakers removed from display on Thursday, according to reports.

Comrade Pelosi sent a letter to House Clerk Cheryl Johnson ordering him to remove portraits of the four past speakers in observance of Juneteenth, an unofficial holiday commemorating the Republican’s emancipation of the last slaves in the Confederacy.

“There is no room in the hallowed halls of Congress or in any place of honor for memorializing men who embody the violent bigotry and grotesque racism of the Confederacy,” Pelosi piously proclaimed.

The former Speakers whose history have now been whitewashed from the House are Robert Hunter of Virginia, who served as speaker from 1839 to 1841, Howell Cobb of Georgia, 1849 to 1851, James Orr of South Carolina, 1857 to 1859, and Charles Crisp of Georgia, 1891 to 1895.

Pelosi claimed she “did not know” the history of these past speakers until the media told her about it on Tuesday.

“We didn’t know about this until we were taking inventory of the statues and the curator told us that there were four paintings of speakers in the Capitol of the United States for speakers who had served in the Confederacy,” Pelosi exclaimed on Thursday.

“The portraits of these men are symbols that set back our nation’s work to confront and combat bigotry,” the speaker insisted. “Our Congressional community has the sacred opportunity and obligation to make meaningful change to ensure that the halls of Congress reflect our highest ideals as Americans. Let us lead by example.”

Paintings of the Speakers of the House have been hung in the Capitol since 1852 and now included the mages of more than 50 past speakers.

This purging of history needs to be repudiated and put to an end.
