Bloomberg caught badmouthing farmers

Standing there after having presumably eaten food, Michael Bloomberg would have you think America's farmers are dumb.

Farmers can now stand in line behind black people (branded criminals), poor people (ordered taxed to keep them from spending their money on booze and cigarettes), women (maybe if they'd go to a library instead of Bloomingdale's), and babies in the womb (kill it) to collect their Bloomberg insult.  Does this guy have any respect for anyone?  His money seems to have activated his inner jerkwad — which isn't going to cut it for winning the presidency.

This insult was from 2016, and lot of this stuff keeps rolling out from his past.

This one was particularly obnoxious because farmers have always been targets of the left.  Remember all the leftist abuse hurled at Rep. Devin Nunes for being "a dairy farmer"?  Remember how the Obama administration used to spy on farmers and hand their data over to left-wing activists?

Farming is hard work.  It's not putting a seed in the ground and letting nature take it from there — not even backyard gardening, which I do, is that simple.  It's the country's most successful enterprise, in that American farmers feed the world and that American farming has gotten so efficient over the centuries that very few people are needed to do it.

Having never farmed, Bloomberg seems to believe it's something simple: "I could teach anybody in this room to be a farmer."

The other thing is that Mister Smarty Pants, so much brighter than America's farmers, see, thinks farmers not only don't know tech, but can't learn tech (memo to Mike: they already have), or that tech always takes analytical skills.  Actually, it doesn't; much of it takes precision and an encyclopedic grasp of rules, which is often different from analyzing.

The few farmers who remain in farming tend to be ultra-tech-savvy, with knowledge of satellites, weather systems, fertilizer schedules, crop rotation, pesticides, regulations, commodity markets, and irrigation. 

As my old farmer aunt in western Michigan puts it: "Don't criticize farmers while you've got food in your mouth."

In any case, Don Trump, Jr. stated the obvious about this one:

Elsewhere in the Twittersphere, there was nothing but opprobrium for Bloomberg's ignorant drivel, too:

What it shows is that this creep is so buried in his money that he's completely out of touch — out of touch not just with the feelings of ordinary people who end up being his targets, but with the actual doings of them, too.  He believes he knows, and that makes it worse, because he literally knows nothing about what it means to be a farmer.

Imagine this guy now as president, issuing diktats based on his bizarre and ignorant (but confidently held) beliefs about farmers.  It's proof in itself that Bloomberg is utterly unfit to be president.
