Bloomberg’s Violations

Bloomberg’s Violations

In the early 2000’s, the New York City Police Department paid civilians and officers to spy and report on the city’s Muslim residents.

So-called “rakers” and “mosque crawlers” infiltrated charity groups and student organizations, took pictures of people entering mosques, monitored sermons, recorded license plate and phone numbers, and chatted with Muslims at hookah bars.

Spies were paid to bait Muslims into making inflammatory comments. In one case, the NYPD even sent a spy on a whitewater rafting trip with students from The City College of New York.

The program was exposed in 2011 and shut down in 2014 after failing to identify a single criminal.

“The harms of suspiciousness surveillance of Muslims really ripped apart a core fabric of life for Muslim New Yorkers and a younger generation that grew up being treated as suspects by the very people who were supposed to protect them,” explains ACLU representative Hina Shamsi.

The surveillance operation was overseen by then-Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who described the program as something he “expected” the police to do.

This is the same person who implemented “stop and frisk,” imposed regulations on trans fats, tried to ban large-size sodas, and prohibited the donation of bagels and other foods to the homeless due to salt and fat content.

Bloomberg conveniently apologized for the “stop and frisk” policy days before announcing his candidacy, but has failed to apologize for the Muslim surveillance program.

Based on his decisions as NYC Mayor, voters fear what sort of policies Bloomberg would push for if elected president.

“By inheriting a national striation of surveillance, someone like Bloomberg, who has a record of targeting minorities with these policies on a local level, would most definitely do so on a national level,” says Asad Dandia, a Muslim American who was spied on in New York City when she was 19 years old.

“I just don’t know how we could have the trust in him,” adds Moiz Mohammed, who was a student at Rutgers University in New Jersey when the surveillance program was exposed. “What is he going to do when he’s president and has much more authority and resources at his disposal?”

Author’s Note:

Not only are these policies a violation of the First and Fourth amendments, but they suggest a disrespect for human freedoms and a narcissistic streak that makes Bloomberg believe he is smarter than everyone else. Do we really want that sort of person leading the country?

Editor’s Note: This is in addition to the un-Constitutional “Stop-and-Frisk” and (holy moly!) the New Yorker’s inability to buy a large soda.  Bloomberg believes that his decisions are superior and must be applied to all, even when his decisions fly in the face of our Constitutional freedoms.

I get the feeling that the Democrats will soon realize this man does not suit their narratives.

    WELL! To bad for the Muslim population, they brought it a pond themselves with the territorial act here in this country, OH! It was alright to spy on the Italians when they were investigating the mob. So as the saying goes you reap what you sow, maybe if they started acting more civilized they would be more trusted in their communities. And as for the ACLU let’s see how they feel if they find a bomb in one of their offices, I do not think they would be so supportive.

    Stop & frisk was a good idea, took a lot of criminals off the street. Crime is on the rise in the rotten apple since Debozio the communist took over NY, the cops hate him. And I can’t imagine why we would keep Muslims under surveillance (9-11, etc.) Bloomberg is apologizing for doing something right. The PC culture is consuming this country, hopefully we’re not too far gone.

    Cry me a River if the Muslimes weren’t such a bunch of douche bags no one would care about them . They are nothing more than disease carrying vermin , scum of the Earth pieces of garbage. They all need to be kicked out of America .Their so called religion is nothing but a cult of racism hate murder and child rape . There is no form of life on the planet lower or more deserving of hate and contempt than muslimes. They will never be part of this country .The only good muslime is a dead muslime

      Check the 2953 Federal law which still stands on the books that basically says that due to the inability of Muslims to blend into our Christian based nation they are NOT to be allowed to immigrate to and stay the United States of America. Our leaders back then knew the basic problems that would develop if this were allowed and we see those same problems today with the lack of the Muslim community to blend into the American culture, they bring their own, their inability to exist outside their own communities, the Muslim communities rejection of our laws and traditions, the Muslim multi-wife culture, the welfare drain these people put on our system to help those that need it, and the lack of any Muslim skilled labor earning a living. Our last Muslim in charge POTUS, Obama, has upset this balance and created a pox on this nation that will only spread into the SH type nation status, that they came from.

        Sorry, that is a 1952 Federal Law.

        • Bob

          If that law is still on the books are all muslim immigrants illegal? If so start deporting them!
