This man is literally Hitler.
He’s a fascist. He’s Mussolini. He’s Mao.
And he’s going to kill you if you sign on to any of his bull****.
The latest is that he’s “not going to run for President” because he now believes that he should start up a new movement called Beyond Carbon, which, as the name implies, means the end of hydrocarbons and similar.
I note he doesn’t believe a word of his doomsaying; it’s all a huge ****ing lie and to the extent he tries to sell it to others that makes it a fraud.
Let’s me point out that not only does Bloomberg own at least a dozen residences all over the world, all of which consume a metric crap-ton of energy, he also owns both a jet and a chopper.
He has neither sold or disposed of either yet both require carbon-based fuels and always will.
Bizjets are ridiculously inefficient on a per-person-mile per gallon of fuel consumed, eclipsed only by anything rotary wing. You may as well light suitcases of $100 bills on fire (and barrels of oil) in your back yard when it comes to fuel consumption on those things.
I have no quarrel with rich people — even stupidly-rich people, and what they choose to spend their money on. But as soon as any of them start braying about how we must stop using carbon-based energy sources while they own and use yachts, private jets and helicopters, all of which are discretionary items nobody actually needs and all of which consume carbon-based fuels by the truckload they can all **** off.
This man is dangerous and his intended “movement” can only achieve its goals one way: By force.
He intends to shove everyone lesser than he is in the oven — and I’m not speaking rhetorically either.
