President Obama announced yesterday that his Justice Department will file suit in Federal Court in an attempt to keep Arizona's racist SB 1070 from going into effect at the end of this month. The local Republicans and Teabaggers, of course, are having a field day with that news. It is, after all, a conservative wet dream that the "gummint" is coming to take their guns away or protecting wetbacks - never mind that most of the lazy assholes don't work and can't afford ammo to fire their phallic substitutes anyway!
Old Joke Arpaio, the "shurf" of Maricopa County, is not too concerned about this coming lawsuit. He has already been enforcing SB 1070 for years, and lawsuits have a history of fueling his foolishness. The law in Maricopa County is what the shurf says it is, and the sooner the United States Department of Justice and all of them damned federal judges learn that, the more effective he can be at protecting the Valley of Hell from all of those undocumented dishwashers and maids.
Jan Brewer, Tom Horne, J.D. Hayworth, John McCain, and the entire Republican Congressional delegation are drumming up fear for purely political purposes. Brewer is talking about legions of drug runners racing across the border, guns blazing, and decapitated bodies littering the desert in southern Arizona. Sure, it's all lies, but it's lies that these sand goobers long to hear. They need to feel justified in their bigotry and racism.
The only way this craziness will end is if the state of Arizona succeeds in making itself such a laughingstock that decent people choose to spend their conference and vacation dollars elsewhere. Boycott Arizona!
Let me say that louder: BOYCOTT ARIZONA! Show these sand rats that their choice to be mean, stupid, and hateful comes with a price!
