    Your previous statement sounds pretty absolute and pre-determined.

But instead you automatically assume that an individual or group is attempting to remove the site. I question why you are so quick to make such a claim when so little facts are present.

    If he was doing this to protect people from tyranny, ala New Orleans gun grabbing, I would agree. But that definitely isn't his motivation.
    If the story is being reported accurately, then this is pretty damning, but not the least bit surprising, given that this is New York, after all.

    Mayor Bloomberg has snubbed Borough President Markowitz’s impassioned plea to bring the National Guard to Hurricane Sandy-scarred Brooklyn — arguing that approving the Beep’s request would be a waste of federal manpower and turn the borough into a police state.

    “We don’t need it,” Mayor Bloomberg said on Wednesday during a press update on the city’s ongoing Hurricane Sandy cleanup. “The NYPD is the only people we want on the street with guns.”

    A perfect expression, here, of Bloombergian idiocy: In order to prevent the area from becoming a “police state”, he wants only the local police to be armed.

    This is a non issue.

    Submitted for your approval, a list of National Guard aid operations in response to Sandy, several of which are/were in Brooklyn:

    This is just speculation, but I believe the context of the comments (if they were indeed made at all), was that Bloomberg didn't want additional National Guard members to police looters. It wasn't a blanket denial.

    That would fit in, but for now, I'll withhold judgement until a clearer picture presents itself.

    Didn't happen. Anything reported by Newsbusters can, usually, be dismissed as extreme rightwing lies, anyhow.
