The Cost of the Union: Who Opposed Arizona?

District of Corruption

A few months ago, a group of states filed amicus curiae briefs with the Supreme Court in support of the Obama administration’s lawsuit against Arizona.

OD readers will be shocked to learn that those states were New York, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts, Oregon, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

The same states that thought Obama was a wonderful idea.

Update: Scalia writes:

“Arizona bears the brunt of the country’s illegal immigration problem. Its citizens feel themselves under siege by large numbers of illegal immigrants who invade their property, strain their social services, and even place their lives in jeopardy. Federal officials have been unable to remedy the problem, and indeed have recently shown that they are unwilling to do so. Thousands of Arizona’s estimated 400,000 illegal immigrants—including not just children but men and women under 30—are now assured immunity from enforcement, and will be able to compete openly with Arizona citizens for employment.

Arizona has moved to protect its sovereignty—not in contradiction of federal law, but in complete compliance with it. The laws under challenge here do not extend or revise federal immigration restrictions, but merely enforce those restrictions more effectively. If securing its territory in this fashion is not within the power of Arizona, we should cease referring to it as a sovereign State.”

Note: Arizona was supported by Michigan, Alabama, Florida, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas and Virginia.

Isn’t it funny how all these struggles always seem to breakdown to Dixie and Far West vs. Yankeeland and Ecotopia? Why would anyone want to “take America back”?

We would be infinitely better off without the Union with the Northeast and West Coast.

  1. The Arizona decision was a Roman Catholic & Jew rape of the law. With all of the Roman Catholics & all of the Jews getting a little piece of the action. Well, maybe Roman Catholic Scalia only got a hand job. LOL.

  2. On the home front, we now have this. BOYCOTT General Mills/Pillsbury.

    Minnesota for Marriage had this email bulletin:

    “If It’s A Fight General Mills Wants – Then It’s A Fight They’ve Got

    The Green Giant, Lucky Charms, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Kix, and Trix have all declared War on Marriage.

    Yes, General Mills, the corporation that spends billions of dollars marketing these cereals to parents of children, has just declared War on Marriage in Minnesota. In fact, their CEO personally wrote a check for $10,000 to the main group trying to defeat the marriage amendment and change the definition of marriage to “Genderless.”

    Aren’t you just sick and tired of big corporations ignoring your wishes to pander to special interests? Think about it. General Mills makes billions selling products to you, your kids and grandkids – yet, they think they can get away with it because we won’t fight back.

    They have grossly miscalculated us! Starting Tuesday June 26th through Friday June 29th we will be holding “Dump General Mills rallies” across from their headquarters from noon to 2:00 pm each day.

    Join us. Bring your friends. We’re asking you to bring your unopened General Mills products from home and dump it in our trailer – we will be donating the food to local food shelves. Let’s send a message to all companies in Minnesota – we won’t tolerate this. We will fight back.

    Send an email to Andy@MinnesotaForMarriage.com and let us know when you are coming and how many people we can count on you bringing.”

    Let your fellow Whites in MN who care about true marriage, know that, even if they are for multiculturalism, you are not-and that, even if they don’t ‘get it,’ you do, and are joining the boycott of all GM/Pillsbury products, starting with their breakfast cereals…. not that we use that sugar-laden crap in our house, anyway.

  3. If you don’t think that Michigan, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, and Nebraska aren’t in “Yankeeland” then you need to stop hitting that crack pipe.

  4. Praising Scalia is all fine and good, but he is party to Obama’s usurpation as well. When presented with one of the gravest constitutional crises in the nation’s history, he aided and abetted the usurpation by inaction.

  5. Sad thing is Scalias time is imminent. Whoever gets elected this November will be choosing his replacement. Doesn’t matter though because more than likely the new guy will be another dickhead like John Roberts “conservate.”

    This country is fucked.

  6. On a related note:

    http://dailycaller.com/2012/04/26/retiree-immigration-adds-billions-to-deficits/#ixzz1tFiDDHav

    Roughly one-in-eight new immigrants to America are 55 or older, ensuring there’s little financial payback for the $300,000 or more in taxpayer support given on average to each older immigrant during the last few decades of their lives. . . In 2011, 5 percent of new Green Cards went to 53,126 people aged 65 or older, and another 7.3 percent of cards went to 77,198 people aged 55 or older, according to data from the Department of Homeland Security.

    You really have to hate your own nation and people to foist this expense on them. And it’s funny how all those “sanctuary cities” never run afoul of undermining Federal law.

  7. I’m not surprised at these results, I live in New Jersey just across from NYC, in other words, the heart of the worst of Yankeeland. It’s no surprise that people up here think Obama is the second coming of Christ, practically everyone in my classes voted for him and think he’s awesome. And of course, they’re non-white and brainwashed white liberal idiots, steeped in anti-racism. You would think poor white people having to live in the ghettos of Jersey City would know better, but they don’t. I hate living up here, I lived for several years in rural Florida and my older brother lives in rural Virginia, I much prefer it there. Jersey sucks.

  8. The propaganda war has begun, both sides claiming victory of sorts… all amerika loses.

    What kills me with this insanity is that the Feds have border patrol checkpoints in Arizona and other border states up to 75 miles north of the actual border (DHS claims they have the right to search anyone within 75miles of the international borders). They’ll stop all cars, on roads going east/west not north-south and ask “are you an american citizen” like with the dui checkpoints version of “have you been drinking tonight?”. Screw deporting illegals, forget securing the border, handout welfare for all illegals and lets just harass likely citizens with a pointless interal border check who’ve committed no crime while driving on the road.

    Ahh lovely Oregon. The idiot governor (on term #3) has ruled that the state cops are to accept the mexican consular “matricular” cards as valid ID. No car insurance, name isn’t on the car’s title? No problemo! I wonder as a citizen, if I’d be treated the same if stopped with no insurance, car title or valid ID?

  9. In 2011, 5 percent of new Green Cards went to 53,126 people aged 65 or older, and another 7.3 percent of cards went to 77,198 people aged 55 or older, according to data from the Department of Homeland Security.

    You really have to hate your own nation and people to foist this expense on them. And it’s funny how all those “sanctuary cities” never run afoul of undermining Federal law…

    omg— and wasn’t that the whole rationale… the too low birthrate of whites, after years of ‘zero population growth’ propaganda, movies, abortions, etc— so now there weren’t enough “young workers?”

    How could people hate the documents of the founders so much, whites so much, freedom so much, to see nothing in it worthwhile— total “equality” (even if it were possible) would not heal that sort of hole inside.

  10. Dixiegirl: I think about that all the time. The vast, vast majority just believe the propaganda spewed out of Hollyweird, Faux, CNN, etc. They are too uninterested to find out the truth of history. They spend their time reading books about teenage vampires and adolescent warlocks (adults, mind you) than any of our founding documents, Western history or anything useful. They spin their hours away cheering for minority teams with names like Celtics and Vikings. They’ve bought into equality without thinking about it much. Anyone who questions it is challenging their reality, and it really, really upsets them. They have no concept of civics, how government works. I’ve talked to too many to believe any different.

  11. “strain their social services”

    Arizona White trash don’t want to share their entitlements with Beaners.

    Arizona is where Whites move or get trapped when they are priced out of better real estate.. Or have arthritis.

    If you live near my beloved NYC and don’t appreciate it or don’t know how to appreciate it, leave.

    Consider Arizona.

    Don’t forget your sunscreen.

  12. So, what is the real reason that so many of the dual-party leaders and cheerleaders want unfettered immigration of illiterate, uneducated peasants?

    Who wants this?
    Why do they want it?
    Who benefits? Que bono?

  13. It’s pretty simple really. Business benefits from cheap labor. The Democrats want votes and welfare clients.

  14. But what does your average leftist prole get from it? The only thing I can see is some pitiful, self-deluded sense of moral superiority: “See!! I love the beaners too!!”

    It’s a source of endless amusement to witness those that grovel before creatures that despise them. Far too many whites are cowards and fools.

  15. The Negro view of “freedom” includes freedom from work and even the trashiest Whites are above or lack the natural constitution for some jobs. That’s where the Mexican comes in to play an utterly indispensable role in our economy. They also pay taxes; illegals contribute $7 billion per annum to soc. security. And as Rudel mentioned, their naturalized young vote.

  16. UNION RESPONSE:

    http://www.aflcio.org/Blog/Political-Action-Legislation/Court-Strikes-Down-Most-of-Arizona-s-Anti-Immigrant-Law-but-Not-Racial-Profiling-Provision

    But the court let the portion of the law remain that will lead to racial profiling. It allows authorities to demand proof of immigration status when stopping people for traffic or other minor violations.

    Arizona AFL-CIO President Rebekah Friend says to let that provision stand is a:

    grave error because the rights of Arizona’s working families will be violated and irreparably harmed in the meantime. We have seen firsthand the consequences of such divisive policies: Everyone suffers.  Thousands of jobs have been lost, communities have been disrupted and families have been irreparably divided.

    Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.), a member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, says:

    I know they will not be using that kind of tactic on people with the last name Roberts, Romney or Brewer, but if your name is something like Gutierrez or Chung or Obama, watch out.

    Trumka and Alvarado note that Jim Crow segregation laws targeting African Americans were upheld by generations of Supreme Court rulings.

  17. “(E)ven the trashiest Whites are above or lack the natural constitution for some jobs. That’s where the Mexican comes in to play an utterly indispensable role in our economy.”

    Not so. There are NO jobs that whites cannot do and have not done as well or better, even those involving extreme climate adaptation — except for susceptibility to skin cancer from tropical sun exposure (where darker skins come out ahead) or reaction to extreme cold in the extremest polar climate (where the eskimo constitution is superior) — so we DON’T require extra-racial help to sustain the economy. In my opinion, of course. OTHERS think extra-racial wage slavery or OUTRIGHT slavery ENRICHES white economy.
