Los Angeles Cuts Ties With 'Nazi' Arizona, While Americans Support 'Nazi' Arizona
Here's something to make you cry: While big liberal cities keep cutting commerce with Arizona over its terrifying "round up the brown folks" law, 59% of Americans "gave their overall approval to the law, which opponents charge is unconstitutional and a mandate for racial profiling." (Theactual Nazi party, under Hitler, went from 2.6% popular support before the Great Depression hit Germany to 43.6% by the third year of the financial catastrophe. So it's a good thing we're not in the midst of a terrible, nation-changing recession, right?)
If 59% sounds like an insane amount of support for Arizona's anti-Mexican laws, here are some much worse percentages:
Seventy-three percent said they backed a measure requiring people to produce documents verifying their legal status if police ask for them, while 67% approve of allowing police to detain anyone who cannot verify that they are in the country legally.
