Boycott Arizona Diamondback games?

Written by Janet

I can’t believe this, how stupid can they be to now even suggesting that fans boycott the Arizona Diamondback baseball games?  Listen up, this law was passed because immigrants have been breaking the law in droves…they’ve entered this country illegally…..why the hell should anyone boycott anything, when in fact for once our lawmakers are finally doing their job, protecting our citizens from all the violence and illegal activity along the US-Mexican border?

And the insanity continues — Many hispanic groups, organized labor, you know the ones who illegally employ these illegals, and civil liberties activists, (morons), and even the leader of the California state Senate, and idiot leaders from two cities in California, have also moved to sever ties with businesses in Arizona….hello, doesn’t that put more people out of work?

Even more, the Arizona Hotel and Lodging Association said six organizations had canceled conventions in the state, including the 11,000-member Immigration Lawyers Association, which had planned to hold its annual fall meeting in Scottsdale. 

The law is stated to take effect in 90 days, after the current session of the state legislature adjourns, the statute requires state and local police to determine a person’s immigration status if there is “reasonable suspicion” that they are undocumented — a mandate that critics say opens the door to racial profiling.

Ah, but Arizona’s major league baseball team has become a target of these fanatics.  Activist Tony Herrera and his group is urging fans to refrain not only from going to Diamondback games, but also from buying the club’s T-shirts and other merchandise. He said activists would form picket lines to pressure fans not to attend a game in Chicago against the Cubs scheduled for Thursday.

The country is going crazy over a state enforcing federal laws….California Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, a Democrat, has asked Governor Swarzenegger to do everything possible to sever the state’s economic ties with Arizona….are these people nuts?  Oh and we can’t forget the LA city councilwoman, who introduced a resolution to stop all business with Arizona….

Boycott baseball, America’s pride and joy an d#1 sport?

    Arizona Immigration Boycott Zeroes in on Baseball

    Major League Baseball has a strong presence in Arizona and a high number of Latino players, making it a prime target for opponents of Arizona’s new immigration law who hope to persuade the state to change its divisive law through economic boycotts. Activists and sports columnists across the country are calling on baseball fans to ask the MLB to pull the 2011 All-Star Game out of Phoenix and to relocate the spring training Cactus League.
