Do you remember my posts where I explain that the way these Leftist tyrants work is to ban things in a way that let them say they haven’t banned anything? Well, here is a story where Bloomberg is clearly demonstrating that I am correct when I say that this is what Cass Sunstein advocates in his book, Nudge (and how all those on his team work):
MICHAEL BLOOMBERG, MAYOR, NEW YORK CITY: We’re not banning anything… Our job is to educate. It’s the public’s job to decide when they look on the grocery shelf or have the lever on a soda machine which thing to take, which product is in their interest. All we’re trying to do is educate. Hopefully, if they understand that they would be better off with one product or another they’ll make that intelligent choice.
There is so much here, so I’ll take it one at a time:
1 – He is lying. He DID ban ‘big gulps’ – and he did so outside the normal legislative process. That means, he dictated the law.
2 – He is equivocating. When he says you can still go to the grocery store to buy large sodas and that this means he didn’t ban anything, they are not the same thing. As I just mentioned, he DID ban the big gulp, so he banned your ability to buy those large drinks at many of the places they were once available. He also banned your ability to buy large fountain drinks because you cannot buy those at the store. So, any way we slice it, he is lying and equivocating.
3 — He has demonstrated the ‘nudge, push, shove’ method Cass Sunstein developed. When he couldn’t talk people into not buying big gulps (nudge), he made them illegal (push). Now he’s trying to ban weapons (push) and, when we resist, he will make us into criminals and jail us (shove).
4 – He claims his job is to “educate,” but it is not. His job is to enforce the laws. Not to make them, Not to lecture us. Not to do anything other than enforce the laws – PERIOD! But, by asserting that his job is to educate, he affirms another thing I have been trying to explain to you: he thinks he knows better than we do, and that this gives him a moral obligation to save us from ourselves – by force, if necessary.
Put these things together and they spell T-Y-R-A-N-T. And the arrogant, self-righteous jackwagons in New York City have forced this idiot on the rest of us by re-electing him. If he would stay where he belongs – inside his city – I wouldn’t care. The effect on the city would be poetic justice, but he is part of the Obama-Media-Education cabal and, as such, he is bringing his NAZI-like tactics to the rest of the nation and his sights are now set on our individual right to self-defense.
He is also telling you that he and his buddies plan to have cameras watching us everywhere we go within the next 5 years, so we’d better just get used to it. To you think he is including everywhere he goes in that ‘everywhere’ h mentions?
So I say it again, Bloomber is a NAZI-like TYRANT! And all of those who support him and/or his agenda are goose-stepping right along with him.
