LOS ANGELES VOTES TO BOYCOTT ARIZONA
Posted by Andrew Roman on May 13, 2010
And so it is that the “international” city of Los Angeles, a city of “immigrants” – and the second largest city in the United States – has decided that it is willing to “punish” the everyday, hard-working people of the State of Arizona by boycotting businesses in that state.
After an emotion-drenched discussion filled with tales of immigrant ancestors, sob stories, and other irrelevant heart-string yankings, the City Council of the City of Angels voted almost unanimously (13-1) to say “no” to dealing with businesses based in the Grand Canyon State.
Thus, if that fourteen-member group of elected catatonics achieves their desired result, people who legally work in the State of Arizona (including Latinos, blacks, Orientals, etc) – those who actually rely on interstate business – will be made to suffer. In the Utopian world of the LA City Council, the working class people of Arizona – citizens and legal aliens alike – who make their living in the hotels, resorts, restaurants and tourist spots of that state will have to pay the price for those who are here illegally because a group a morally confused imbeciles think they are standing up for what’s right.
And yet, the open-borders crowd doesn’t give a damn about any of that. The “pathway to citizenship” jockeys couldn’t care less about the consequences of their actions. The very people who, time after time, claim to be for the working people – the “everyday regular folks” – don’t give a rat’s rear end who might suffer as a result of their numskulled, knee-jerk boycott of Arizona.
That these elected Los Angeles screaming meemies are tossing excrement on fellow citizens and legal immigrants means nothing to them. That they make up a painfully small minority of Americans who believe the Arizona law is wrong doesn’t daunt them. That their misguided and ill-conceived notions will only backfire on them doesn’t deter their march to the hallowed Gates of Idiocy. They have bought into the entire “international city” crap, rooted in the belief held by many that the land comprising much of the Southwestern United States is still “occupied” territory.
And all because the State of Arizona is finally enforcing existing law.
Isn’t it ironic that the very people who believe that Americans should be required by law to have health insurance – and be able to prove it or be punished – are the same ones who have conniptions at the mention of people being required to present paperwork to law enforcement officials to prove their legal status?
Mark my words on this … the American Latino community will stand up and support the State of Arizona. When it becomes evident, as is starting to happen now, that the law is in place to protect all American citizens, as well as legal immigrants (including Latinos), they will stand up in favor of the new measure. When it becomes obvious that the new law has nothing to do with ethnicity or race, they will support what is right.
Personally, I am convinced that this moronic boycott will have little, if any, effect on Arizona’s economy. If people want to go to Arizona and patronize their businesses – or conduct business online with companies based in Arizona – they will. Most people are not on board with the Los Angeles City Council. Every poll under the sun confirms that.
Besides, many of us will make it our business to seek out companies based there to show our support.
