Bloomberg Says Interpretation of Constitution Will ‘Have to Change’ After Boston Bombing

Politicker – by Jill Colvin

In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Monday the country’s interpretation of the Constitution will “have to change” to allow for greater security to stave off future attacks.

“The people who are worried about privacy have a legitimate worry,” Mr. Bloomberg said during a press conference in Midtown. “But we live in a complex word where you’re going to have to have a level of security greater than you did back in the olden days, if you will. And our laws and our interpretation of the Constitution, I think, have to change.” 

Mr. Bloomberg, who has come under fire for the N.Y.P.D.’s monitoring of Muslim communities and other aggressive tactics, said the rest of the country needs to learn from the attacks.

“Look, we live in a very dangerous world. We know there are people who want to take away our freedoms. New Yorkers probably know that as much if not more than anybody else after the terrible tragedy of 9/11,” he said.

“We have to understand that in the world going forward, we’re going to have more cameras and that kind of stuff. That’s good in some sense, but it’s different from what we are used to,” he said.

The mayor pointed to the gun debate and noted the courts have allowed for increasingly stringent regulations in response to ever-more powerful weapons.

“Clearly the  Supreme Court has recognized that you have to have different interpretations of the Second Amendment and what it applies to and reasonable gun laws … Here we’re going to to have to live with reasonable levels of security,” he said, pointing to the use of magnetometers to catch weapons in city schools.

“It really says something bad about us that we have to do it. But our obligation first and foremost is to keep our kids safe in the schools; first and foremost, to keep you safe if you go to a sporting event; first and foremost is to keep you safe if you walk down the streets or go into our parks,” he said. “We cannot let the terrorists put us in a situation where we can’t do those things. And the ways to do that is to provide what we think is an appropriate level of protection.”

Still, Mr. Bloomberg argued the attacks shouldn’t be used as an excuse to persecute certain religions or groups.

“What we cant do is let the protection get in the way of us enjoying our freedoms,” he said.  “You still want to let people practice their religion, no matter what that religion is. And I think one of the great dangers here is going and categorizing anybody from one religion as a terrorist. That’s not true … That would let the terrorists win. That’s what they want us to do.”

  1. So his lips moved. Sayanim Bloomberg just passing along what the ‘seven families’ instructed him to say.

    1. Indeed a worrisome development. Over in Canada, “two suspects” (aka Patsies) of “possible train bombing attempts” were “foiled” by the RCMP.

      The smell reeks. It stinks of a set-up. Like past frame-ups by the Zionist Harper Regime, these “suspects” won’t be heard of again…

  2. Imagine my complete (lack of) surprise. This statement by Doomberg confirms why the entire Marathon bombing was staged in the first place. What a complicit and predictable turd.

    The only thing that irritated me more was all the assholes on the steets of Greater Boston cheering-on the cops, military & DHS. Our founding fathers, and 2-centuries+ of fallen American soldiers are no doubt rolling-over in their graves. Makes me want to puke!

  3. Nothing but lies from the aka Mayor in Chief. I wonder if he knows the penalties for violating the Constitution. My advice is don’t even think about changing the Constitution or you could find yourself in deep doo doo – methinks.

  4. Is it just me or does it seem that these turds yelling for more security are the only ones scared of everything? I have never met one person who ever said ” God I sure hope a terrorist don’t kill me today” have you? I mean these people must have been raised in a flower garden by butterfly’s , scared of their own shadows and telling the rest of the nation they should be afraid too! It makes me sick to my stomach to witness the pussification of the country. I say it’s time to take names and kick ass .

  5. Well there you have it. That’s basically Bloomberg announcing the end of the Bill of Rights, and anyone who doesn’t see what’s going on here has their head stuffed so deep they’ll never see the truth.

    Anyone who’s not “awake” and resisting at this point is working for the enemy. Recruited by the other side by their own ignorance and gullibility.

    As for the Bostonians who were “cheering on” the martial law scenario, I didn’t see the video, but I’d have to guess that was probably staged for the cameras. They would need to throw that in to help properly condition the herd population for when it happens again.

    Remember: You don’t hear from the people on our side. There are a lot more of them than you’d imagine, but they’re a silent force they you’ll only see when that force finally explodes. What was allowed to pass in Boston ticked off a lot of people, and when it happens again, the fuse may be lit.

  6. It’s also appalling how this little faggot Jew-boy thinks he can “change the constitution” with his announcement.

  7. I’m not a religious fanatic but, suppose with don’t agree with some portions of the bible?. Do we change that to suit our means?. No, you work with it, you don’t skirt around it to your liking. This is just another BS ploy to get the sheeple to give up more of their rights. Little by little you’re whittling away at them towards the final goal to get rid of the constitution.

  8. Bloomberg acts like he’s head of the U.N. Oh wait …. maybe he is. This traitor needs to be arrested for treason and deported.

    . . .

  9. They cannot live by the constitution so they want to change it? F them. We the people got our Bill or Rights and I think the Bill of Rights trumps the constitution any day damn it. They do not want the Constititution as was originaly written then they can get the F out. Just like the Bill of Rights, they were both witten for a reason and not written to be changed as the PTB see fit for their own purposses. What ever happened to WE THE PEOPLE here in America, eh?

    1. Digger, WE THE PEOPLE amount to about 5% of the population. (OK, I pulled that figure out of my arse, but what the hay you get the picture)
      “We the sheople” out number us and will obey their masters call as heard on the Puppet Shows.
      What really makes me sick is that Howdy Doody and Buffalo Bob were much more entertaining!

      1. Damn rhumstruck, something just made me think of that morning show from the late 50`s called “Kukla, Fran and Ollie”, I know some from our generation remember that one with the two hand puppets and that lady there singing and talking to the hand puppets 🙂 . http://www.kukla.tv 🙂 .Child hood memories Ya know.

  10. “We know there are people who want to take away our freedoms.” He knows these people personally. He goes to their parties, they play golf at the same country club, they fly in the same helicopters, hell, they even have State and city sponsered dinners for them. They are his friends, his ‘brethern’, his crony’s. They are him.
