Bloomberg says Arizona law means “national suicide”

Billionaire idiot liberal Michael Bloomberg followed up his Daily News column attacking the Arizona law with much more intemperate remarks. “This country is committing national suicide,” he said at a public appearance. And what does this national suicide consist of? Does it consist of, say, dismantling our national identity and leaving our country open to a continuing Third-World and criminal invasion? No. To Bloomberg, “national suicide” means trying to stop the invasion. To Bloomberg, “national suicide” means distinguishing between legal immigrants and illegal aliens.

As absurd as Bloomberg’s “national suicide” warning may sound to us, we need to understand that from his liberal perspective it makes complete sense. In his mind, America is not a historically defined, sovereign nation; it is simply a “marketplace,” an open field where all of humanity may come and realize their desires. Therefore to prevent all of humanity from coming here and realizing their desires, to have defining and enforceable boundaries around America, to say, in short, that America is a distinct nation, is “national suicide.”

Such is the liberals’ construction of a gnostic dream world, with which they seek to supplant the actual world that we inhabit, along with all its goods and values, including our very nation, built up over centuries and millennia. Open Borders is the Marxism-Leninism of our time.

Mayor Bloomberg slams Arizona’s anti-immigrant law: ‘We are committing national suicide’

A fired-up Mayor Bloomberg warned the U.S. “is committing national suicide” by passing the buck on implementing comprehensive immigration reform.

Hizzoner delivered the blunt message Wednesday as he criticized Arizona’s harsh new anti-immigrant law.

“This is not good for the country. I don’t agree with it,” he said. “We love immigrants here.” [LA replies: This is low demagoguery. America takes in over a million legal immigrants a year. The Arizona bill doesn’t affect that. By conflating illegal aliens with legal immigrants

Bloomberg said that because federal lawmakers have failed to tackle the thorny issue, lawmakers in states like Arizona have taken matters into their own hands.

“This country is committing national suicide,” Bloomberg said.

The Arizona law allows cops to stop anyone they think is in the country illegally and arrest folks who can’t prove their immigration status or citizenship.

Bloomberg deemed it an invitation to harassment.

“We have to get real about the 12 million undocumented here,” the mayor said. “We’re not going to deport them. Give them permanent status. Don’t make them citizens unless they can qualify, but give them permanent status and let’s get on with this.”

Bloomberg spoke as he thanked volunteers at the “Citizenship Now!” hotline sponsored by the Daily News and City University of New York, which helps callers who want to know how to become citizens.

He called on President Obama to lead the fight to overhaul the nation’s immigration rules. “I will be there behind him supporting him 100%,” he said.

Bloomberg long has been a supporter of immigration reform, saying current law deters international companies from sending employees through border hassles to work in the U.S.—and freezes out the highly skilled immigrants America needs.

“We don’t have doctors, and we’re not allowing people who want to come here and be doctors to come here,” the mayor said. “This is just craziness.”

“People are developing new drugs in India, rather than here. They’re going to win the next Nobel Prize in China or in Europe, not here. If we want to have a future, we need to have more immigrants here.”
