Bloomberg Claim Of Being Able To ‘Teach Anybody To Be A Farmer’ Resurfaces; It’s Slammed As Being ‘Embarrassingly Ignorant’

Published

Democratic presidential candidate and former mayor Michael Bloomberg has been getting raked over the coals for the last few weeks as more and more video footage continues to be unearthed of him saying rather unsavory things that seem to be turning off leftist voters everywhere.

First, it was video of him saying rather racist things concerning the Stop and Frisk policy in New York City, then comments about women popped up, then statements about allowing elderly people with cancer to die, and now a comment about him being able to teach anyone to be a farmer.

This guy was obviously delusional to even consider a run for president with this kind of stuff in his closet. No amount of campaign spending for commercials is going to save him now.

A clip of Bloomberg lecturing at Oxford University’s Saïd Business School in 2016 resurfaced over the weekend and sparked outrage from the Left and the Right on Twitter. In the footage, the former New York City mayor said that people need more “gray matter” to do the technological jobs of the Information Age than those in agrarian or industrial societies.

“The agrarian society lasted 3,000 years,” he said. “I could teach anybody … to be a farmer. It’s a process. You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, you add water, up comes the corn.

“Then we had 300 years of the industrial society. You put the piece of metal on the lathe, you turn the crank in the direction of the arrow, and you can have a job,” Bloomberg continued.

The now-presidential candidate went on to distinguish the “information economy” from all preceding time periods.

“The information economy is fundamentally different because it’s built around replacing people with technology, and the skill sets that you have to learn are how to think and analyze, and that is a whole degree level different,” Bloomberg said. “You have to have a different skill set. You have to have a lot more gray matter. It’s not clear the teachers can teach or the students can learn.”

The relevant portion of the video below can be found at the 42 minute mark.

A one-minute clip from the Bloomberg lecture stirred up the hornet’s nest on social media, with folks on both sides of the political spectrum ripping into Bloomberg over his idiotic comment.

With this many skeletons in the closet, this many awful things said in the past, what in the world possessed Bloomberg to run for president and honestly think he has a chance of winning?

Oh. That’s right. He thought that he could buy the election through tons and tons of advertisements blitzing everyone on every network and social media platform known to man.

Sorry, but that’s not how this works.

Save conservative media!

Marco Rubio Gets Confronted By MSNBC Host Over Saying Some Journalists ‘Giddy’ Over COVID-19

Sen. Marco Rubio has found himself in the hot seat with MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle after making the comment that some journalists are thrilled over the spread of the coronavirus, a statement he defended. Ruhle asked Rubio to explain the tweet which he made earlier in the week, noting a portion where he said: “Some in our media can’t contain their glee & delight in reporting that the U.S. has more #CoronaVirus cases than #China…Beyond being grotesque, it’s bad journalism.” https://twitter.com/marcorubio/status/1244279416819273729 Here’s more from Washington Examiner: “I need to ask you this, because I’m a journalist,” Ruhle said. “We’re not just some personalities. You called out journalism. And I need to understand why on earth you did this.” Rubio said some journalists are “doing exactly what I said.” “Well, because there are some journalists that were doing exactly what I said,” the Florida Republican responded. “I read reports about how some Republicans are doing this, or some members of Congress are doing that. I don’t know what other word to describe who’s doing something and who isn’t.” Rubio gave a few examples of certain situations where he believes that journalists expressed happiness in reporting on coronavirus figures and noted that he said “some” not all journalists were behaving this way. https://twitter.com/TPMLiveWire/status/1246081048846401536 Rubio found support among many on the right, including Caleb Hull who tweeted: https://twitter.com/CalebJHull/status/1244311946817671173 The bottom line is, there are probably some journalists who are excited by the prospects that this virus is providing for the progressive movement. After all, Democrats are using this situation to try and pass a bunch of pet projects they want made law through inside these coronavirus relief packages, so is it so far fetched to think liberal journalists might think the same way? Regardless, here’s to hoping this all goes away sooner rather…
