Bloomberg Hires Thousands Of Canvassers To Stop Black Men On Street And Force Them To Hear Campaign Pitch
NEW YORK—Citing polling data that suggested the former mayor was tracking poorly among 18- to 25-year-old African Americans, Michael Bloomberg ’s presidential campaign hired thousands of canvassers Friday to stop black men on the street and force them to hear his campaign pitch. “We want to make sure black voters can’t walk down the street without hearing Mike’s message loud and clear,” said campaign spokesperson Julie Wood, clarifying that canvassers have received training on the proper tactics for stopping black men and throwing them onto the ground while delivering Bloomberg’s talking points. “We’ve also instructed our canvassers to confiscate any materials supporting other candidates. In some cases, we might actually take some men into custody and bring them back to campaign headquarters. This is a massive undertaking that will run well beyond Super Tuesday. We’ve already set up Bloomberg-branded vans in black neighborhoods across the country to spread our message. It’ll all be worth it once these young black men hear what Bloomberg has to say about funding social security while they’re pressed up against a brick wall with an elbow digging into their backs.” At press time, Bloomberg defended his campaign’s decision to stop black high schoolers on the street, insisting that they’d be of voting age soon enough.Advertisement Read more: The Onion
Brian03062472 the onion? hahahahahaha talk about a POS RAG .. they NEVER tell the truth RonPa1973 parscale DonaldJTrumpJr EricTrump RonPlacone Ooo can you imagine 1000s of white people descending into a prominently black American neighbourhood to canvass? Possible outcomes here. 1. The neighbourhood could mistake this for an old style lynching. 2. There will be many dead white people at the end of the day.
DudeConfirmed Damn the Onion has stepped up their game HappyFunNorm Sounds like slander more than satire~ JamesRobichaux 🤣🤣 radleybalko Sometimes u gotta use common sense. U must know some B💩s, like this 1 wld be better received...if it begin with “Once upon a time...The End”. Don’t let sources w/hidden agendas deter us frm recognizing their B💩s.The stank is not different frm 45 or GOP. Beyond the headlines
☠️ johncusack Is this true?! Sorry to question but Indian social media is full of fake narrative these days. Sometimes it's hard to tell if an Onion story is real or fake. This has been one of those times

YGalanter Stop and pitch. lmao. Love the Onion. Stop and frisk was so wrong on so many levels but he still got about half the black vote while mayor so I dont know. Dont have a clear view on him but love the ads. CnBsNana I prefer Warren or Klobuchar, bu this is not helpful. If it takes Bloomberg to beat Trump, we gotta do it.
graue This cuts a liiittle to close to the truth. Jbegould 💀 This is perfect 😂 shoe0nhead I seriously heard a Bloomberg Ad on the radio every hour today. No other candidates. Fake news Cusack LeslieKofoed StopAndBore This looks fake to me
Bloomberg campaign pays social media accounts for memesU.S. Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg 's campaign is payi... American oligarch lol That's a disgusting form of corporate propaganda.
MistyAtBoulder That would be funny if it weren’t true. jujueyeball did you tweet *about this* or did they just write the same headline as you? johncusack How do they 'force' them? Popehat 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Ok this is funny rosegoggles Lol All of them are forced to stand behind him. They look so miserable.
jeff_hauschild Whomever came up with this one deserves a raise. I actually cracked a wry smile. Popehat Oddly, it seems to be working. DolphinGarage 💀💀💀
'He's not going to bully me': Bloomberg focuses on Trump in his return to NashvilleThroughout his roughly 12-minute speech, Bloomberg peppered in several local references while making his pitch to an audience of an estimated 1,100 people. MikeBloomberg psst: he (realDonaldTrump) doesn’t care about you. You’d actually have to win something (not buy it) first. As you won’t win TheDemocrats party’s nomination for President, the actual POTUS just could not care less about your antics.
actdottv OUCH! legaladvice_txt Stop and frisk with a twist jasonrileywsj 'Stop and Fisk' GrantDeppen AlanTudyk This is how I feel about YouTube right now joshtpm DonaldJTrumpJr johncardillo This program is called 'Stop an Pitch' Money buys a lot, but something reeks about Bloomberg! Damn SilERabbit - I’m lean’n heavy towards a Bloomberg/E.Fraud ticket ... maybe that Pete dude, he seems plastic enough
Bloomberg: I should've acted sooner on stop-and-friskWATCH: Facing criticism for the use of stop-and-frisk during his time as mayor of New York, Mike Bloomberg apologizes during an event with African American voters in Houston. If that makes everything OK now, we should be ashamed. When will we stop giving rich people a pass? Bloomberg is NOT what this country needs. We would be replacing one Trump with another Trump. Don’t be blinded by 🎩💰RobberBaron He said it was 5 years ago. Well 5 years isn’t that long ago. Just saying Bloomberg Any candidate care about the white voters?
NewKindOfPol Maybe it’s true... he certainly has some major issues to address in the black community... but that pic is just bs. Don’t you even want to APPEAR to be journalistically honest? 'Stop & Pitch' materials are all over the Mike 2020 HQ. shoe0nhead Stop and Pitch. 😂 Fucking hilarious for all the wrong reasons.
😂😅😋😄😆🥴 VanJones68 will vote for him. sadogre Klo: “WRITE THAT DOWN! WRITE THAT DOWN!” shoe0nhead Even when Bloomberg pays off every news organization and journalist, really will be the most trusted news source... So by next week at the rate Mike is buying endorsements. At this point, one of these days I'm gonna end up on r/atetheonion
this is gold.
Thomas Friedman makes the case for Bloomberg“I think Mike has the experience, he has the right values, and he has the capability to take on the machine, which is the Trump re-election campaign,' NYTimes foreign affairs columnist Thomas Friedman says of Mike Bloomberg's candidacy. That's a good laugh. The right values? You read the Atlantic and NY Times articles that catalog decades of deeds and words that belie what Democratic Party stands for? Racist Mike!
Please stop giving Bloomberg ideas. 🤣 The finger gun takes this from good to great thelegendarytk robdelaney It’s humor. Anyone who believes this is seriously lacking brain cells. Snopes this. seems legit. i'll buy more if you have it. Too real robdelaney ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Isn't that called the *Listen and Frisk?'
robdelaney Thats where 95% of the votes are
Opinion | Why Bloomberg (yes, Bloomberg) could win over black voters as Biden fadesIt's a mistake to ignore the Bloomberg campaign’s ability to connect with this key constituency despite the candidate's horrendous record on policing. THINK It’s like ya’ll don’t even care about being straight nonsense anymore with headlines like that. How much he pay you to push that lie? More than the lady holding up the sign in the picture I hope. THINK Ex-President Obama protected absent minded Biden for 8 years, and probably one of the main reasons, he didn’t endorse him. For his own good. From Ukraine, to run running with Holder, and other bazaar strange behaviors, from hair sniffing to swimming , to forgetful. THINK Democrats going to beg borrow and steal the nomination away from SenSanders again. If I were a Bernie supporter I would be furious.
No, they didn’t mediumvillain lol but also too real Holy shit shoe0nhead ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ NounRiot How long till they are forced to make phone calls for.... Oh wait! shoe0nhead Would you call this policy the 'Stop and Pitch'? Lol awesome 👏 drawandstrike Has CNN fact checked this? 😁 Glad to see Bloomberg hasn't gotten his hands on The Onion.

Trump running against Bloomberg is the ultimate manifestation of that scheme.
