Bully Bloomberg Reacts Calmly to Losing Court Case: “After January, I am going to destroy all you f–king guys”

Posted by on May 22, 2013 at 7:35 am

This is how third-world dictators or guys named Obama behave when they don’t get their way: Flip out and vow destroy anyone who opposes them. Has anyone noticed how these guys have unraveled since they didn’t get their way with their gun confiscation scheme? Tyrants don’t like it when anyone opposes them. Even for a schmuck like Bloomberg this is way over the top.

Mayor Bloomberg went on a spitting-mad rant against a city cab-fleet boss who won a court victory over Hizzoner’s planned “Taxi of Tomorrow” — vowing to “destroy your f–king industry” when he leaves office, The Post has learned.

A fuming Bloomberg made the threat against Taxi Club Management CEO Gene Freidman at Madison Square Garden’s private 1879 Club during last Thursday’s Knick playoff game, a witness said yesterday.

“It was like Gene had kidnapped his child. He used the f-word twice,” the witness said.

Freidman confirmed the blow-up to The Post, and said Bloomberg’s tirade included the warning that, “After January, I am going to destroy all you f–king guys.”

We’re in a dangerous time in America. Bother the First and Second Amendments are under furious assaults in Washington and we have a two-bit punk like Bloomberg, drunk on power, looking to crush anyone in his path.

“I saw Bloomberg and his security there in the club, so I went over and said, ‘Tell me what is going on with the Taxi of Tomorrow?’ ” Freidman, 42, said yesterday.

“He turns to me, and said, ‘Come January 1st, when I am out of office, I am going to destroy your f–king industry.’

“I said, ‘Whoa, Mr. Mayor, calm down! Why can’t I sit down with you and figure out something that works?’ He got back in my face and said, ‘After January, I am going to destroy all you f–king guys,’ ” said Freidman, whose company operates a fleet of 925 yellow cabs.

Freidman said a red-faced Bloomberg’s jaw was clenched.

“He was very angry, very scary, very violent in a non-physical way. He was grinding his teeth, he was spitting, he was red and he was in my face,” the self-styled “King of the Road” claimed.

“The mayor was extremely disrespectful, and not ‘mayorly’ at all. He cursed at me, and when we walked away, I asked a friend who was with me, ‘Did the mayor just threaten me?’

“My friend responded, ‘No, he threatened you twice.’ ”

You know how you react to bullies like this?  Punch back twice as hard. This may have been caught on video and we can only hope it’s made public.

But nothing would calm Bloomberg — who at one point looked about for security to toss Freidman from the club.

“This was my club that Bloomberg was a guest in, that I had paid to get in, and he wasn’t getting me kicked out of my own place,” said Freidman.

His lawyers have asked MSG to preserve any surveillance video that may have captured the exchange.

    No surprises here. Malignant narcissist dwarf (not referring to his physical stature), Bloomberg, is a deranged thug. Always has been. Thanks to this slug and all the idiots who support him, NYC is now a socialist s**hole…at best.

    Michael Bloomberg is a jerk. Anthony Weiner is a serious contender to replace him. How do we expel the city from the Union? Voters like that are bad for the country.
    As far as taxis go, the city should have only two roles to play: that taxis are safely operated and to collect a small revenue stream as from any other business. Rates, models of vehicles, number of hacks — those should be worked out through the marketplace rather than by policy because any policy will limit liberty and opportunity.
    Personally, I’d think that a small hybrid van would be the bee’s knees as a taxi. It should also be possible to make such a rig wheelchair-accessible more easily than a sedan. (Making every taxi wheelchair-accessible is awfully costly and wasteful.) But I don’t run a taxi business and I could be utterly mistaken. I would prefer that a business operator decide how to operate a business — imagine that!

    I know the Christian thing (I am a lapsed Roman Catholic) would be to turn the other cheek. However, we are not dealing with moral, decent, honest people who simply have a difference of opinion.

    The masks are slipping, and we are seeing that the modern Left doesn’t even see those who disagree as HUMAN. We are being made into Unpeople for having the audacity to have another opinion.

    Obama throws a temper tantrum, not over the dead from Fast and Furious, not over the dead from Benghazi, not over the partisan dealings of the IRS, and not over the specter of spying on the Press.

    No, Barack Obama threw his tantrum over NOT GETTING HIS WAY, specifically with Gun Control. Like Bloomberg, all he cares about is amassing power.

    Did anyone see “A Time To Kill”? Do you remember the speech McConaughey’s character gives at the end, “now imagine she’s white.”

    Can you imagine what the Press would have done, what Democrats would have done, if a REPUBlICAN Mayor responded like this to a leftist? Can you imagine the media firestorm that would ensue? So, ask your Liberal friends and relatives how they would have responded to Bloomberg’s outburst had he been a Republican.

    We need to start using the Left’s own tactics against them. We need to isolate, ridicule, and mock them. We need to, within the law, do exactly what they have been doing these past few decades.

    Civility comes about when there are consequences to actions. Leftists need to understand that their childish temper tantrums will result in consequences. If a few Leftists get figurative bloody noses, maybe they will begin to understand that their behavior is wrong.

    Maybe they will begin to understand that using the underhanded and nasty tricks they have been using won’t be quite so fun when they are used AGAINST them.

    Eventually, the gloves WILL come off, and I am betting the Left won’t find this new world they are creating very much to their liking.

    The poisoned chalice yields a bitter drink.

    Nanny Bloomberg must be on edge over getting caught spying on his own customers with the Bloomberg Terminals.

    He might lose his monopoly and billions per year

    New York City, greatest city on earth..l

    Imagine if a (R)or conservative said that to anyone.

    The taxi industry in New York is broken. “The medallions which could not be sold for a simple $10 renewal fee during the 1930s are now worth hundreds of thousands of dollars with fleet medallions topping $1,000,000 in 2011”.

    A million dollars to get government authorization to drive people around town?

    It’s a government controlled monopoly with a few rich medallion owners making most of the money.

    “We need to start using the Left’s own tactics against them. We need to isolate, ridicule, and mock them. We need to, within the law, do exactly what they have been doing these past few decades.”

    Here is the problem. Most libs in the public eye and even the individuals I argue with don’t see hypocrisy, as others have pointed out they don’t acknowledge mistakes and more importantly their partisan followers do not acknowledge the mistakes of their leaders. If conservatives actually used thos tactics, right and wrong would literally seize to exist. The majority would always be exactly right, no matter what they did. Today, at least there is one group trying to keep an established line of right and wrong. Maybe some of their leaders overstep that. They get punished, they apologize, hopefully pay in some way for their transgression, and life moves on. Neither side acknowledging right and wrong would not make a better world, Ace.

    He looked about for security to have Freidman thrown out of the club? If hes so big and bad and angry, why didn’t he do it himself? If they drug tested for chicken shit, no doubt Bloomberg would peg the meter. Theyd need a x10,000 scale to keep from smoking it. And as far as that threat–if somebody said theyre gonna f’n destroy you that could mean, theyre gonna kill you. And you would be justified to “protect” yourself. Like a friend of mine said “sometimes ya gotta vote from the roof”
