Arizona boycott backed by Milwaukee County Board panel

Arizona boycott backed by Milwaukee County Board panel

Milwaukee County would boycott doing business with firms in Arizona to protest that state’s tough immigration law, under a measure endorsed Thursday by a County Board panel.

The county would avoid new contracts with Arizona firms or the state of Arizona and possibly discontinue any current contracts with firms in that state, under a resolution unanimously approved by the board’s finance committee. It also would bar county employees from travel to conferences in Arizona.

The aim would be to punish the state for the immigration law Arizona enacted last month that makes it a crime for immigrants to fail to carry immigration documents and gives police broad power to detain a suspected illegal immigrant.

Supervisors Peggy West and Elizabeth M.Coggs called the Arizona law racist.

“It reminds me of the days of apartheid in South Africa,�? said Coggs.

The resolution goes to the full County Board Thursday.

Arizona boycott backed by Milwaukee County Board panel

You know, once in a while I get some really AWESOME emails. Today was one of those days.

Mr. Chuck, one of my very loyal, and long time readers, sent me a YouTube link that proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt, what we all have long known. Liberals are STUPID! Do you doubt that? See the video. The IDIOT running off at the mouth is Milwaukee County Supervisor Peggy West. The same Peggy West mentioned in the above story.

Elizabeth M. Coggs and Peggy West are a couple of very disillusioned people. For one thing, there is NOTHING racist about enforcing U.S. law or State law. Illegal is an act of being, it’s not a race.

It reminds you of the days of apartheid in South Africa Ms. Coggs? Seriously? Apartheid?

Apartheid was a RACIST exercise if ever there was one. I’m pretty sure that the Blacks in Africa aren’t there illegally though. In fact, I’m fairly certain that they were in Africa LONG before the white man. What happened to Blacks in South Africa was RACIST. Enforcing immigration law is NOT racist, it’s enforcing the law!

After some serious thought, I am going to have to say, West is not stupid, she’s a MORON. Coggs is a MORON too, a very STUPID moron.

Milwaukee should be ashamed of itself for ever letting these 2 get in a position of power. I only hope that neither one has children, the gene pool needs to be cleaned, and these MORONS are a great place to start.

    Jesus F. Christ, I can not believe it!!!!! If you people think these 2 are dumb, what about the moronic assholes that voted them into office?? With people like this I think I know exactly why the political scum in DC get their idea that they know best. God, I am going to go take my frustrations out on cutting down a tree. Whewwwwwwww

    Logic has nothing to do with it. This merely confirms they are GOWPs who, truly, may be “educated” but they have learned NOTHING and, further, can’t “interpret” or “conclude” rationally.

    The AZ law is essentially a carbon copy of current federal law extant with this exception: it’s LESS strict than federal standards. California, for example, ALREADY has a law on the books on the order of federal immigrant laws.

    Arizona is getting the Israel treatment. Boycott and try to destabilize the government. If the Feds lose their court case, I expect them to take full control of Arizona. It will be “For Their Own Good.” of course.

    I have to admit that I was born and raised in Chicago, Il. It’s just a stones throw from Milwaukee. I’ve been in Texas since 1972, I got here just as soon as I could. Arizona is far removed from the border with Mexico? I wonder what school she went to and what kind of grades she got in geography, or do they even teach that any more, I did graduate high school in 1962 and I do realize that things have changed, but I don’t think Arizona has been moved and I’m pretty sure Mexico is sitting right where it was back then. These are the kinds of people we have in positions that govern our country. Scary, isn’t it. She spouts off without even looking into what she’s spouting off about. The sad part? There are probably people up there that believe her.

    Some good news is that conservatives are making major moves in Wisconsin this year. People are getting very tired of the liberals in their state. Note Badger Blogger’s comment below.

    As for the young lady lacking in education, I find this all over the country. Our schools have been dumbed down. It was astounding for her say to use Google on the topic but not even check the Google mini map that probably popped up at the top of her search. or to at least check out where Arizona is located.

    Makes me wonder if we should all run something on our blogs to support the badger conservative blogger network tin their addressing the actions by Milwaukee County and this young ladies performance.

    Note: Badger Blogger wrote Jun 24, 2010 … At today’s meeting of the City of Milwaukee Public Safety Committee, … example of the Milwaukee County Board’s foolish boycott of Arizona. … issue blanket amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants as it struggles to …

    Maybe we should invite all the illegals to head to Milwaukee County so they could experience a little of the current problems experienced by Arizona. We sure do not need anymore illegals in Arkansas.

    WOW! You have to wonder how people like this can ever get elected, but then again we need to look no further than the recent SC primary.

    These women have no idea what security is,or what racism is.
    They’ve probably never been out of Milwaukee for that matter. They need to shut up and go make us a sammich!

    This woman has been a County Supervisor since 2004.

    I wonder if she’s changed her mind since she’s had a geography lesson on Arizona and how it borders Mexico?

    If it weren’t for Milwaukee and Madison, Tim Michels would have been Senator instead of Feingold. This is the same area that elected Dopey Jim Doyle twice, and keeps re-electing Potted Plant Kohl. It’s a state that is owned and operated by a very socialistic teachers union. So, it shouldn’t be all that surprising that a council member doesn’t know where Arizona is located. :?

    In a stunningly ignorant rant about Arizona’s Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act (SB1070), Peggy West a county supervisor from Milwaukee WI, states in part �? If this were Texas a state that borders Mexico I would have to look twice at this, but it’s Arizona, a state that is removed from the border…�? What adds insult to the injury of her stupidity is that she had listed one of her interests as Mexican history on her FaceBook page. The interest has since been removed

    Do I need to tell you this woman is a Democrat? Her party must be so proud.

    I would respond to you if Rowlett was in Dallas County (or another county in Texas) where the city of Dallas is located…But since Rowlett is in…. WHAT AN IDIOT!!! She should be removed from her position for not knowing US Geography!!! I bet Africans (black and white) in S. Africa know where AZ is…

    MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee County Board spent part of the day debating a measure that would call for the county to boycott doing business with companies in Arizona.

    Communities around the nation have passed similar measures in response to a law in Arizona that makes it a state crime to be in the country illegally.

    There was an odd moment during the debate when Supervisor Peggy West stood up and seemed to be confused about her geography. “If this was Texas, which is a state that is directly on the border with Mexico, and they were calling for a measure like this saying that they had a major issue with undocumented people flooding their borders, I would have to look twice at this. But this is a state that is a ways removed from the border,” West said during debate.

    Her colleague, Joe Rice, quickly corrected her, “I just want to assure my colleague that Arizona does in fact share a border with the country of Mexico.”

    While speaking at the meeting, West did go on to talk about National Guard troops on the border in Arizona. West points to that as she tells us that she simply misspoke.

    “I did get a passing grade in Geography in high school and in college and I do obviously know that Arizona is on the border,” West said in an interview after today’s meeting.

    West claims that the point she was trying to make is that because Texas has a much larger border with Mexico, she might feel differently about such a law in that state. “Had Texas come out with the legislation, having the largest border, I think that I would be more receptive to the fact that there was a problem. But having it be Arizona, having it be the second largest boarder and knowing there are troops on the border in Arizona, it didn’t seem to me that this legislation was particularly necessary at this moment in time,” West said.

    The board sent the measure back to a committee, taking no action on it today.

    So, now Peggy West *misspoke* huh?? Yeah, well, I’m still going with MORON as my answer to this whole thing…

    MORON, coupled with LYING Bimbo… :twisted:

    Yes AOW, that is their agenda. To get these kind of dumbass shitbags elected in high places just so they can spew lying shit just like she did in favor of all her illegal buddies.

  25. comment number 25 by: HoosierArmyMom

    I’m with Fred, if the morons have children, let’s sterilize them so the gene pool can be cleansed of the total ignorance! Geeez!

    If anyone wants to have fun with this one and let Ms. West know how stupid she has shown herself to be… from coast to coast… here is her email addy!!! [email protected]

    I can’t wait to let her know that boycotts swing both ways!
