The mayor of San Francisco, Gavin Newsom, has issued an official city employee ban on travel to Arizona as a symbol of solidarity with those against this ridiculous legislation. Mexico has warned its citizens against going to Arizona, which means a potential loss of 3.8 million visitors, and even more millions of dollars lost in tourism.
This is FUCKING FABULOUS!
Absolutely nothing in the modern world talks like money does. Perhaps if Arizona's interim governor begins noticing that expenses aren't equaling income due to a rapid decrease in the latter, they'll realize everybody thinks this legislation is ridiculous. Sure, it's a good kick in the rear to the federal government to get on immigration reform, but that's like saying the Holocaust was a good kick in the rear for diplomatic relations. How many people will have to be victimized between point A and point B?
The Washington, D.C. city council is also thinking about putting the same travel ban in place that San Francisco's city government has. Businesses, local & state governments, whole countries. They're all ringing the proverbial alarm clock on Arizona, hoping the state's government will wake up!
What do you think about these boycotts? Are they too extreme? Is this punishing the whole of Arizona for the idiocy of their government? Or, is this doing to Arizona what it is doing to its citizens? Email IncitingARiotPodcast@gmail.com, leave a comment below, or Tweet me @IncitingARiot.
