I have no idea why Bloomberg’s Aspen comments are so controversial. He says the most obvious, boring things everybody knows. What’s the big deal?
Also, the obsession with the supposed evilness of frisking belongs entirely to well-to-do white people.
All of the drama over Bloomberg’s utterly trivial comments comes from this cohort of privileged white lefties over the age of 40. Curiously, it’s the same cohort that loved the TV series The Wire.
