Michael Bloomberg Alienates Indians

Democrats may resent Michael Bloomberg’s attempt to buy the nomination out from under the communist Bernie Sanders, but they can’t say Mini Mike is not inclusive. He alienates everybody — blacks, Hispanics, farm and factory workers, women, pro-lifers, people who like freedom, the elderly, transsexuals, and also Indians:

Bloomberg suggested the governor of New York don a cowboy hat and stare down Native American tribes with a shotgun over a disagreement on cigarette taxes.

Bloomberg … made the insensitive comments during his weekly segment on WOR 710-AM with John Gambling in August 2010. At the time, then-New York governor David Patterson was proposing to tax cigarettes sold on Native American reservations…

“I said, you know, ‘Get yourself a cowboy hat and a shotgun,’” Bloomberg told Gambling. “If there’s ever a great video, it’s [Patterson] standing in the middle of the New York State Thruway saying, you know, ‘Read my lips—the law of the land is this, and we’re going to enforce the law.’”

Imposing confiscatory cigarette taxes on technically sovereign Indian reservations has been an explosive issue in New York. Members of the Seneca tribe clashed with state police over it in 1992. Burning tires were dropped from highway overpasses.

This same tribe has demanded an apology from Bloomberg for his “inflammatory and racially insensitive” rhetoric. Maybe he should pay the Seneca Indian Nation to sign a nondisclosure agreement, like he does with so many of the women he has allegedly harassed and discriminated against.

Mini Mike reaches out to Indians.
