Support Arizona Business As Seattle City Council Jumps On The Boycott Bandwagon
Seattle’s City Council voted unanimously to enact yet another tiresome, misinformed, liberally idiotic boycott of Arizona in wake of the new immigration law (SB1070). Of course, Seattle made an exception for the only existing contract it has with an Arizona company, which runs our city’s red-light cameras. (Read the full Seattle Times article here.)
The article goes on to talk about new lawsuits, filed by – surprise! – the ACLU – arguing the AZ law is unconstitutional because immigration enforcement is an area of exclusive federal authority.
Um, excuse me?
Isn’t this the same ACLU supporting medical marijuana laws in states like Washington? Yes, it is. And isn’t drug/narcotic policy and enforcement also an area of “exclusive federal authority?” (Hint: Think DEA and FDA). Of course, we all know the inherent hypocrisy of the ACLU and their far-left agenda, but this is a bit too much.
However, I digress.
As I’ve stated before, and will state repeatedly until it’s drummed into the heads of those too stupid to listen the first time: boycotting Arizona hurts the same people the boycott claims to be supporting. Namely: the workers of Arizona, many of whom are Hispanic, and here legally, if not actually born here.
I did a little digging online and came up with the following site:
This is a great resource of online Arizona businesses. And, it links to the following:
There you go, Seattleites. And everyone else who doesn’t live in Arizona but feels the need to support AZ businesses in light of all these pointless boycotts.
UPDATE: I encourage you to contact the Seattle City Council and voice your outrage. Support legal immigration and Arizona’s right to take action when the federal government won’t!
