Bloomberg securing the Democratic nomination would represent the final triumph of oligarchism in the American political system.

 

There will be no going back at that point.

They sound fairly crazy tbh, but this isn't an anti-Bernie thing. As sblfilms said, they just want to get pro-choice women elected.

 

 

 

Oh, geez, they support the candidate who does worse in the general. :p

This is interesting. Is Biden in Nevada campaigning? I'm sure he's in the Nevada debate.

Not looking forward to President Bezos or very definitely President Zuckerberg? The best thing Trump did for these guys was prove you don't really have to divest yourself of anything because it's not actually against the law, and even if it was, who cares when you control the DOJ.

It's no surprise De Blasio endorsed Bernie - he's not perfect, but he does consider himself a progressive. I'm glad for the major endorsement regardless, and I love that it snubs Bloomberg at the same time.

Washington Post goes in-depth on allegations of sexism from Michael Bloomberg the past several decades

 

Quote

Garrison complaint
18. Upon information and belief, in 1989, when a male Company salesperson was getting married, Bloomberg said to the female salespeople, “All of you girls line up to give him [oral sex] as a wedding present.” He repeated like words on several occasions in each of the years plaintiff was employed at the Company.

 

Quote

Several lawsuits have been filed over the years alleging that women were discriminated against at Bloomberg’s business-information company, including a case brought by a federal agency and one filed by a former employee, who blamed Bloomberg for creating a culture of sexual harassment and degradation.

 

Quote

A number of the cases have either been settled, dismissed in Bloomberg’s favor or closed because of a failure of the plaintiff to meet filing deadlines. The cases do not involve accusations of inappropriate sexual conduct; the allegations have centered around what Bloomberg has said and about the workplace culture he fostered.

 

Quote

One of Bloomberg’s rivals for the Democratic nomination, Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, said in December at an Iowa campaign stop that nondisclosure agreements are “a way for people to hide bad things they’ve done.” She called on Bloomberg to release women from such agreements.

 

Asked while campaigning to respond, Bloomberg said: “Maybe the senator should worry about herself and I’ll focus on myself.” He acknowledged enforcing nondisclosure agreements by his former employees and said, “You can’t just walk away from it. They’re legal agreements, and for all I know the other side wouldn’t want to get out of it.”

 

Quote

Garrison alleged that Bloomberg berated female employees who got pregnant. “What the hell did you do a thing like that for?” Bloomberg allegedly told one pregnant employee. On another occasion, the lawsuit said, Bloomberg berated a female employee who had trouble finding a nanny. “It’s a f------ baby! . . . All you need is some black who doesn’t have to speak English to rescue it from a burning building.”
