Why A Bloomberg Candidacy Is Bad For Jews (Opinion)

Linkedin Share

Jews don’t be fooled…..President Donald J.Trump is the only choice for Jews of any and all policies.

I have a rule, if something works, don’t try and redesign it. There’s nothing to fix. For Jews around the world, President Donald J. Trump has been the best sitting commander-in-chief EVER for Israel and fighting anti-Semitism around the world.

How are you going to repair something that is a perfect (or as good as its ever going to get)? Not with Michael Bloomberg, I promise you.

Michael Bloomberg will try to buy himself an election as a Democrat the same way he was able to finagle an unprecedented third term as mayor of New York as a Republican. He already announced purchasing voter registration drives in several states.

Doesn’t he realize the Democrats are not interested in Jewish millionaire men in their seventies to run the country and lead their party? My prediction, he won’t be the nominee. He won’t even end up the runner up. The Democrats will go into a brokered convention with anti-Israel agendas a common thread in multiple speeches.

But what will he do? He will weaken the Jewish voice in both parties.

Why is Candidate Bloomberg Dangerous? He’s a mixed bag of goods and the not so savvy voter can fall prey to his rhetoric. Who will he affect most? Jewish voters.

He has supported Jewish causes, led the Israeli Day Parade and won the Genesis Award. He spoke out against pro-BDS guest speakers at Brooklyn College in 2013. There are questions as to whether or not he supported the Iran Nuclear Deal and seemed to flip-flop on other Israeli policies. He has never denied his Judaism. Will it work for or against him this time?

Starting last year, I received contact from several New York political “know-it-alls” who asked me if I would help Michael Bloomberg when he decides to declare he is running. It was like they already knew. I asked them, “Aren’t you on campaigns that claim to be supporting President Trump?” They claimed they were. Obviously they are part of “The Deep State” that needs to be exposed.

I asked them what did he do do great for New York? Their answers often compared him to the failures of the current mayor, Bill DeBlasio.

That’s not an answer.

Then, there’s that other comparison. He’s better than “The Gang” and their voices. Is this logical reasoning?

A Jewish activist reasoned this, “Bloomberg is not the be everything that everyone wants – on either side of the aisle – but he would unquestionably be the best that America can offer. As an American Jew, I am grateful for all that President Trump has done for Israel and to protect America. But it is VITAL that the hard left be stopped. With Bloomberg as the Democratic nominee, we all win.” My friend, you are wrong!!!!

My friend, television personality Siggy Flicker, is calling as I am writing this and reminded me about how Bloomberg supported the ground zero mosque.

Where was his patriotism?

Need more hypocrisy???

Let’s talk school choice. During his tenure as mayor he supported Eva Moskowitz and charter schools. But, he also made himself in charge of public schools and worked out a contract for teachers with then United Federation Of Teacher’s President, Randi Weingarten, that changed tenure and benefits for educators.

Critics point out that as mayor, Bloomberg centralized decision making process sometimes shutting out important voices and leadership and that Bloomberg was not transparent. The city’s schools adopted new reading and math curriculum, based on globalist opinions and fuzzy math, often putting English language skills and American history lower on the level of importance. He revamped New York’s high school admissions system to go to a city-wide process, and adopted an A-F system to grade schools, that was met with questionable standards. He also pushed a teacher evaluation that was biased, often tainted and pushed many white and Jewish teachers out of jobs for cheaper and less qualified educators. Many of the Democratic leadership tied to schools were under investigations and arrested for corruption like New York State Senator Shirley Huntley. Talk about whistleblowers, most were retaliated against and terminated unfairly in bogus kangaroo courts paid for in offices run by Bloomberg.

He made himself a despot of education resulting in failing schools leaving many minorities feeling ignored and angry. President Trump has done so much for minority communities, especially for Blacks and Hispanics. Why turn back? Already, minorities are rejecting him. Can we trust him to support yeshivas and private schools, improve public schools given the current agenda of the Democratic Party?

Let’s not forget the history he has disrespecting women. Bloomberg has long been accused of making offensive and belittling remarks about women’s appearances and sexuality. Many allegations seem to claim of a toxic misogynist culture at his company and sexual assault allegations made against a top executive. In the late 1990s, Bloomberg said he wouldn’t believe a woman’s rape claims unless “an unimpeachable third-party witness” could back them up.

I have read multiple reports that he was especially hard on City Council Spesker, Christine Quinn. Once for going too long between hair colorings. (“The couple of days a week before I need to get my hair colored,” Quinn once said, “he’ll say, ‘Do you pay a lot to make your hair be two colors? Because now it’s three with the gray.’”) Bloomberg mocking Quinn again, she said, for failing to wear heels at public events. (“I was at a parade with him once and he said, ‘What are those?’ and I said, ‘They’re comfortable,’ and he said, ‘I never want to hear those words out of your mouth again.’”)

Bloomberg has publicly criticized Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez‘s Green New Deal, speaking out for a more “practical” approach to clean energy and a more structured, feasible Democratic goal for 2020. Yet, he remains silent on any of the anti-Semitic words and tweets any of the squad says.

Bloomberg has already apologized to his policies of stop and frisk. The Black and Hispanic voters see right through this. Will the Jews as he will flip flop on issues concerning him?

And will he tell us what to eat, drink and destroy driving across the country the way he did in New York City?

Bloomberg is secular Jew and many question if his daughters were raised Jewish. One daughter is married to a non-Jew.

My friends, fellow Jews, don’t waste time and donor money on Michael Bloomberg for President. He hurts on on the Democratic side. President Trump will be really-elected, even Democratic strategists agree. Why ruin a budding relationship for a flip-flopper whose ideas are so far from a party he once knew?

If we go with Bloomberg, policies pro -Israel during the second Trump term might not be a priority or as frequent. It is embarrassing enough to watch Jews tied to the boring hearings that use their own opinions or two Jewish men arrested tied to an Orthodox Jewish Group. Let’s do the right thing and Vote Trump, Vote Republican Congress and restore a pro-Israel agenda in the Capital.
