The owner of the Phoenix Suns basketball team, Robert Sarver, opposes AZ’s new immigration laws. Arizona’s Governor, Jan Brewer, released the following statement in response to Sarver’s criticism of the new law:
“What if the owners of the Suns discovered that hordes of people were sneaking into games without paying? What if they had a good idea who the gate-crashers are, but the ushers and security personnel were not allowed to ask these folks to produce their ticket stubs, thus non-paying attendees couldn’t be ejected. Furthermore, what if Suns’ ownership was expected to provide those who sneaked in with complimentary eats and drink? And what if, on those days when a gate-crasher became ill or injured, the Suns had to provide free medical care and shelter?” -Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer
(h/t Sally E.)
Sally E. sent me the response by Gov. Jan Brewer in an e-mail. It serves to underscore the weak position liberals take when they oppose AZ 1070. It’s easy to be a socialist and spend other people’s money, but when it comes to your own funds, it’s quite a different thing.
I make a similar challenge to other great socialists of our time: Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, barack hussein obama, etc. – When you become Ghandi and give all you have to the poor and begin to walk the walk, I will begin to take you seriously. As it is, your position is one of bribing taxpayers with their own tax revenue to obtain votes.
