Mayor Michael R. Bloombrain goes into orbit
In April 2010, Michael Bloombrain declared in a speech that enforcing the nation’s laws and keeping illegal aliens out of America was “national suicide.”
Yesterday, the increasingly nutty and self-righteous Bloombrain returned to the theme, saying in a speech to the Council on Foreign Relations that unless we “reform” the nation’s immigration laws, we are committing—yep—“national suicide.” It is national suicide, he said, because (even though we are already admitting over a million legal immigrants a year, a point he didn’t seem to acknowledge), we are keeping millions of talented entrepreneurs and job-producers out of the country. And what does Bloombrain’s desired immigration reform consist of? According to Politico’s article on the speech, it consists of expanding the number of H1B visas, and legalizing the 11 million illegal aliens. Now, since any increase of H1b visas will obviously be a tiny fraction of the 11 million illegal aliens who would be legalized, Bloombrain’s nation-saving immigration reform consists essentially of legalizing illegal aliens. Thus Bloombrain apparently believes that legalizing 11 million sub-literate Mexicans is going to add to America’s entrepreneurial and technological creativity. And he believes it so much that he says it with a straight face to the august Council on Foreign Relations.
My theory: Bloombrain represents a florid extreme of the collective liberal Jewish narcissism I have spoken of previously. Such narcissists see every issue through the filter of Jewish experience and sensibililty. Since Jewish immigrants to America and their offspring became successful entrepreneurs and professionals, the same must be equally true of all immigrants, even Mexicans with 90 IQs.
And the Jewish narcissists believe this, not just because they blindly assume that everyone is just like them, but because, in their insane fears of an outbreak of white Christian anti-Semitism in the most philo-Semitic country in world history, they feel that everything about immigration must be shown to be wonderful. If it’s not true that all immigrants can be as successful as the Jews, then there’s something wrong with immigration itself, and since the Jews, far more than any other U.S. ethnic group, identify themselves with the immigration experience, they believe that if something is shown to be wrong with immigration, then America’s proto-Nazi white Christian majority will think there’s something wrong the immigration that brought the Jews here, and will turn on the Jews. As crazy as it sounds, that is the way the liberal Jewish mind works, as I have shown at more length here.
In any case, Bloombrain’s statements about immigration have nothing to do with the real world, and everything to do with a fantastical tribal drama enacting itself in Bloombrain’s head.

Bloomberg is insane. He believes that America is some enchanted land. It’s kind of like the fountain of youth. As you cross the border into America, the Spirit of Entrepreneurism enters your body, and you transform from an illiterate 3rd world sub-90 IQ pauper to a producer of jobs or perhaps the next Einstein.June 16, 8:15 p.m.

Your argument is that Bloombrain fears the truth coming out that some groups have lesser intellectual abilities, because this will bring into focus the Jewish cognitive and socioeconomic advantages.Mark Jaws writes:
You are missing one vital component in your analysis of Mayor Bloombrain. Liberals such as he will publicly state out loud that there is no such thing as IQ, and that “education” can lift people up out of poverty, even those in equatorial Africa. Funny, but the IQ tests which have allowed Jewish liberals such as Bloombrain to enter and dominate Ivy League schools, are somehow to be discarded when it comes to discussing or even tacitly considering inherent differences in population groups.Howard Sutherland writes:
Good clean hit on Michael Bloomberg today. You and Greg W. show how stupid it is to believe that mass third-world immigration is in any way comparable to the immigration of smaller numbers of more intelligent and more compatible groups. There is a cargo-cult quality to Bloomberg’s evident belief that America possesses magical properties that somehow release the power of each immigrant’s inner entrepreneur.Gilda A. writes:
No psychologizing necessary—it’s all about money and power.Rick Darby has remarks about Bloomberg here.
Paul K. replies to LA:
My theory is that the liberal pro-immigration elite types like Bloomberg see the white middle class as the only threat to their power. Therefore, they seek political alliances with the lower class, which is not a threat, and claim always to be acting on its behalf. They also seek to dilute the political power of the white middle class through Third World immigration.Tim W. writes:
Hey, where are we going to get the brain power to compete with the Chinese, the Japanese, and the South Koreans? We must import millions of lower class people from nations where even the upper class can’t compete with the Chinese, the Japanese, and the South Koreans. Don’t you see the logic in this? That Bloombrain is crazy like a fox.June 18

Regarding your recent analysis of Jews, I believe that the problem is deeper than you state. The Jews would concede that many of the immigrants would be the construction workers etc, but cannot see the major decline in the quality of the population nor the descent into the third world, with all of its pathologies. They still believe that these people are the just, the good, the noble, the salt of the earth. How could anything but good come out of it? The opposition are the narrow minded, the xenophobic, the reactionary. In other words they are the “bad” and the bigoted. You remember, all groups are equal, except that the Jews believe that the Other are more equal than white Europeans — the inversion of reality.
