When one looks at how Mayor Michael ‘the Dhimmi’ Bloomberg bowed to Ground Zero mosque imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and contrasts it with his decision to go to war against the 32 oz. soda two years later, it doesn’t take a psychologist to diagnose him.
Mayor Bloomberg is employing the defense mechanism known as displacement:
Have you ever had a really bad day at work and then gone home and taken out your frustration on family and friends? Then you have experienced the ego defense mechanism of displacement. Displacement involves taking out our frustrations, feelings and impulses on people or objects that are less threatening. Displaced aggression is a common example of this defense mechanism. Rather than express our anger in ways that could lead to negative consequences (like arguing with our boss), we instead express our anger towards a person or object that poses no threat (such as our spouse, children or pets).
Ok, so what’s the bigger threat, Islamists like Rauf and Siraj Wahhaj who seek to replace the US Constitution with sharia law OR small business owners who sell big gulps? If you ask Mayor Dhimmi, it’s the latter.
Here is Bloomberg with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, explaining to viewers that he’s ‘simply forcing you to understand’ why sodas pose such a threat to you.
Got that? As Mayor Dhimmi makes the executive decision that affords people the right to buy two drinks that total 32 ounces but wants to take away their right to purchase a 32 oz. cup filled to the brim, he stands idly by and presides over the slow surrender of his city to creeping sharia.
Here is Bloomberg from two years ago, talking about respecting the separation of church and state as a reason why the ground zero mosque should be built. Conspicuously absent from Mayor dhimmi is an acknowledgment that Islam seeks no such separation, as long as sharia law is involved.
