Yesterday on MSNBC’s Morning Joe an unfortunate conversation arose as to why gun rights supporters might distrust New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. According to contributors Mike Barnicle and Al Sharpton the answer is antisemitism.
“Let’s get down to it, Mike Bloomberg, mayor of New York City, there’s a level of anti-Semitism in this thing directed towards Bloomberg,” Barnicle argued. “No doubt about that,” Sharpton responded. “If he was not a big-city Jewish man and was from another ethnic group, in some parts, I think it would be different,” Sharpton continued.
