Who cuts a parade just a few blocks from the historical mark its been marching to for years?I understand budget cuts.But for him to make the comment about drunkenness was crazy.I think he might of forgotten who makes up a huge percentage of public service workers including the police.I like how he caught it off a block away from his luxurious living quarters.Yea people get carried away at parades.But to label an entire nationality is fucked up.He not only lined stepped by stepping on peoples financial class and his.But he even categorized his own people by slanging the Jew comment.I kind of look at this as a big fuck you to all blue collar working class people.Whether your Irish,Jewish,Puerto Rican or just a sexy motherfucker like me.He’s definitely been a asshole for years.But I give Bloomberg the weekly honor this week.I just can’t wait till people march beyond 80th street regardless.And then I can’t wait to see what he pulls concerning other parades like the Pr parade this summer.Fuck you Mike:)

Here are the sources of my little rant.

Looks like Mayor Bloomberg won’t have to worry about seeing “a bunch of people that are totally inebriated hanging out the window” during next week’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

The Fifth Ave.parade route will be shortened to end at 79th St. this year, the NYPD confirmed Tuesday, instead of its previous conclusion at 86th St.

That means it will stop just short of the American Irish Historical Society, located between 80th and 81st streets.

The move is part of an NYPD cost-cutting initiative to trim all parade routes by roughly 25%, which police spokesman Paul Browne said has been applied equally to parades honoring all of New York’s ethnic groups.

Bloomberg angered Irish-Americans by dredging up the image of drunken hoardes in a speech to the historical sociey.

“I know, that’s a stereotype of the Irish,” Bloomberg, who lives nearby on 79th St., said to scattered boos. “Nevertheless, we Jews from around the corner think this.”

Neither the historical society nor parade organizers could immediately be reached for comment Tuesday.

Bloomberg, the Irish and the Jews

The New York Post called it “Irish Stew.” The Daily News headlined it as “Bloomy’s Blarney.” However you say it, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s attempted quip about the Irish and the drink has bogged him down again in what is turning out to be a mediocre third term.

As the News reported:

Hizzoner drew jeers when he tried to joke about the Irish’s fondness for booze in an impromptu speech to the American Irish Historical Society.

He noted he lived near the Irish society’s Fifth Ave. home, and, on St. Patrick’s Day, was used to seeing “a bunch of people that are totally inebriated hanging out the window waving,” a transcript of the event shows …

After making his “inebriated” comment, Hizzoner seemed to realize he overstepped the bounds of decency.

“I know, that’s a stereotype of the Irish,” Bloomberg said to jeers. “Nevertheless, we Jews from around the corner think this.”

The remark about what “we Jews” think about the Irish was a colossal error when you consider that uniting the “three I’s” – Ireland, Italy, Israel – was a key strategy for any politically successful New York mayor. It was also not a good idea for the mayor to stereotype the Irish at a time when he is trying to reduce pensions that were negotiated with the police and firefighters’ unions.

Since I have been researching a history of the relationship between New York’s Irish and Italians, I’ve also done some reading recently on each group’s connection with the third “I.” The mayor should read Ronald H. Bayor’s “Neighbors in Conflict: The Irish, Germans, Jews and Italians of New York City, 1929-1941″ (Johns Hopkins, 1978), which has an excellent section on intense Irish-Jewish rivalry in the 1930s. As I recall, the book ascribes the conflict to economic rivalry – both groups sought the same types of jobs (but not the Italians at that point, leaving them as bystanders to the Irish-Jewish conflict). The author sees a reflection of this animosity in the great support the anti-Semitic broadcaster Father Coughlin received from Irish Catholics in some neighborhoods, such as Flatbush in Brooklyn.

Today, there are plenty of examples of Irish-Jewish harmony in the New York business world and elsewhere, but you can still hear a faint echo of the bad old days occasionally – for example, when Catholic spokespersons complain that Jews aren’t criticized as freely in the media as Catholics are.
