(NaturalNews) You understand, of course, that they are better than you, more valuable to society than you, smarter than you, and that more than anything else, they are above the law and the rules which they apply to you and me, right?

You know that their hypocrisy knows no bounds, because to them, they are not being hypocritical. Rather, they believe they are simply promoting such noble concepts as "economic justice," "fairness" and "safety."

And you know they see anyone who opposes their point of view as a Neanderthal, a fool, or worse, an extremist who must be silenced, persecuted, subdued and "dealt with," for the good of society.

Who am I talking about? I'm talking about an American political class whose ranks are growing and which is filled with "do what I say, not what I do" types who have no problems with controlling every aspect of your life and dictating what you can and cannot do, but who have no intentions of living under the same rules they foist on the rest of us.

Case in point: Michael Bloomberg, the narcissistic mayor of New York City who, if he had his way, would not let residents of "his" city own so much as a BB gun to defend themselves, in defiance of the Second Amendment's guaranteed right to keep and bear arms.

Recently, the billionaire Bloomberg - who was attending a U.S. Conference of Mayors in Washington, D.C. - was confronted by a journalist from the Talk Radio Network, who approached hizzoner to ask some relevant and pointed questions about a right that "shall not be infringed."

'We'll get right back to you'

According to an exclusive report from Breitbart.com:

In an explosive exchange outside the U.S. Conference of Mayors meeting in Washington, D.C., security guards for billionaire New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg accosted senior Talk Radio Network investigative reporter Jason Mattera when he asked the mayor about his strong support for gun control.

Specifically, as noted in a video of the encounter, Bloomberg is taped being surrounded by armed security guards in suits as Mattera approaches. When the reporter draws near he asks Bloomberg, "In the spirit of gun control, will you disarm your entire security team?"

The mayor, obviously taken aback and caught off-guard by Mattera's simple, straightforward question, stammered in reply, "Uh, you, we'll get right back to you."

Unsatisfied, and walking back and forth along the hasty perimeter of suited guards that formed an arc around Bloomberg, Mattera asked, "Why can you defend yourself but not the majority of Americans?" Pressing, the reporter added, "Look at the team of security you've got. And you're an advocate for gun control?"

At that point, the video cuts to Mattera in a different location, walking further down the streets of D.C. when one of the men who was guarding Bloomberg, who identifies himself as "Officer Stockton, NYPD," stopped the reporter and asked him to produce a photo ID.

Mattera eventually complied, but first asked, "Is this standard procedure for the press?" When the officer persisted in asking for the photo ID, Mattera pressed, "Wait, wait, wait, it's standard procedure to be questioning members of the press?

At that point, the officer reached inside his suit jacket and grabbed a pen, as if to be writing something down - perhaps Mattera's name. "You're going to write it down now?" he asked. "Oh, no, sorry," the officer replied.

'Don't screw around with me'

The video cut to a scene that appeared to be even further down the street; Officer Stockton was trailing Mattera and can be heard asking him, "Mr. Mattera, sir, do you have a date of birth?"

"It's none of your business what my date of birth is," Mattera said in reply.

Mattera has a history of getting rough treatment when asking liberal politicians hard questions. In 2011, for example, he was warned by Vice President Joe Biden when he confronted the VP over his use of a rape reference when discussing GOP opposition to a "jobs" bill being offered by President Obama.

"Let's get it straight, guy," Biden warned. "Don't screw around with me."

Hey Joe - welcome to America, a nation our forefathers founded to get away from "ruling class" elitists like you and Bloomberg.
