There’s a great deal of evidence that federal and state-level governments are ignoring the Constitution, but now, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is hinting at actual “changes.”
After the Boston attacks Bloomberg took to the podium to state that the Constitution will “have to change” in order to allow for greater security.
“The people who are worried about privacy have a legitimate worry,” Mr. Bloomberg said during a press conference in Midtown. “But we live in a complex word where you’re going to have to have a level of security greater than you did back in the olden days, if you will. And our laws and our interpretation of the Constitution, I think, have to change.”
“Look, we live in a very dangerous world. We know there are people who want to take away our freedoms. New Yorkers probably know that as much if not more than anybody else after the terrible tragedy of 9/11,” he continued.
“We have to understand that in the world going forward, we’re going to have more cameras and that kind of stuff. That’s good in some sense, but it’s different from what we are used to,” Bloomberg added.
Bloomberg went on to say that after the attacks, we should not blame “one particular religion,” despite the fact that Christianity is often at the end of governmental attack.
Bloomberg said that the attacks should not be a used as an excuse to go after certain religions or groups of people. I ask why not? Seeing that there is one particular religion which actually promotes such attacks and has been actively involved in over 20,000 such attacks since September 11, 2001? I’m talking about Islam, of course. I think it the height of irresponsibility of any leader in the US to not make that connection and is part of the reason we face what we are facing in this country.
Nanny Bloomberg wants to tell everyone how much they can drink, what they can feed their babies, when and where they can smoke, but he goes all limp-wristed when it comes to real threats to the citizens of his city which hides behind the term “religion” while being actively engaged in war against the American people, both physically and politically.
“What we cant do is let the protection get in the way of us enjoying our freedoms,” he said. “You still want to let people practice their religion, no matter what that religion is. And I think one of the great dangers here is going and categorizing anybody from one religion as a terrorist. That’s not true … That would let the terrorists win. That’s what they want us to do.”
Again, would someone ask Mr. Bloomberg to point out people from other religions who have flown planes into buildings in America, shot up our troops, or bombed marathons other than Islam? That’s what I thought.
