Bloomberg Encourages Frontier Justice for Indian Tribes

New York’s own Mayor, his Honorable Michael Bloomberg, recently called for cowboy like, shotgun aided, justice for Indian tribes who oppose a new tax on cigarettes.

Said the mayor,

“I said, you know, get yourself a cowboy hat and a shotgun. If there’s ever a great video it’s you 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,'” he said.

A local tribe, the Seneca Nation, is calling for and apology and resignation.

This is the same health nanny, statist mayor who outlawed cigarettes indoors and now wants to ban smoking outdoors, as well.  Who has raised taxes on cigarettes astronomically, so they now cost over $10/pack.

The same arrogant mayor who changed the then-new term limit laws so us plebeian New Yorkers could enjoy an additional 4 years of his rule.

The same knee-jerk liberal mayor in May prematurely blamed the foiled Times Square bombing on, I paraphrase, an angry Tea Partier upset at the passage of the healthcare bill.

The same billionaire mayor who endorses a cap-and-tax plan, which would drastically raise energy and production costs on families already struggling to pay their bills in the midst of a depression.

And the same out of touch mayor who wholeheartedly endorses the Ground Zero mosque, a 13 story Islamic cultural center within a stone’s throw away from the murder of 3,000 New Yorkers in the name of Islam.  A far cry from his predecessor, Mayor Giuliani, who is appalled.

I agree with the Seneca Nation.  Here we have an infamously anti-gun rights and notoriously anti-smoking Mayor suggesting the Governor enforce a new cigarette tax through threatened gun violence, all under the allusion of the white man sticking to the red man.  Literal or not, it’s a disgraceful thing for a public official to say.

Fellow New Yorkers, can’t we do better than this?
