Here we go. Another mass shooting, another round of mass stupidity from progressive politicians and pundits.
Latest example: In the wake of the horrific shootings in Aurora, Colorado, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg appeared to advocate a suspension of Constitution and the imposition of military-style oligarchy. Speaking to CNN’s Piers Morgan about the necessity of more stringent gun laws in the wake of the Colorado murders, Bloomberg made an astonishing declaration:
“I don’t understand why the police officers across this country don’t stand up collectively and say, we’re going to go on strike. We’re not going to protect you. Unless you, the public, through your legislature, do what’s required to keep us safe.’”
Rarely does an elected official say something so badly reckless and irresponsible. To suggest that our armed police forces abdicate their responsibility until the Mayor’s legislative demands are met is to call on nothing less than the breakdown of civil order, taking us back to the days when the Roman army dictated state policy and installed officers of government.
