Lady Gaga Discusses Arizona Immigration Bill At Phoenix Concert

Lady Gaga weighed in on the Arizona immigration debate during a concert on Saturday night (July 31) at US Airways Center in Phoenix, voicing concerns about the state’s controversial SB 1070 bill. “We have to be active. We have to actively protest,” Gaga told the crowd of over 14,000. “I will not cancel my show. I will hold you, and we will hold each other, and we will protest this state.” Lady Gaga had the slogan “Stop SB 1070″ scrawled on her forearm at the show. “I got a call from some big rappers and big rockers. They said, ‘We’d like you to boycott Arizona because of SB 1070′. I told them, ‘Do you really think that us … pop stars are going to shut down the state?'” Watch via YouTube below.

    This is of particular significance because Lady Gaga is more known for her support of gay rights. While the LGBTQ community as a whole tends to be supportive of other groups’ civil rights struggles, sometimes it is not always the case on the individual level. Mutual education on tolerance needs to be accentuated with both sets of immigrant rights supporters and LGBTQ rights supporters. Read more:

    “House Bill 2013″ and “SB1070″

    0 = Arizona
    2 = USA/ Our Constitution/ We the People of the United States

    We are a country that is ruled by the Constitution, Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence, not by the majority of the day. When you do not know the principles in these documents, therein lays the problem in losing when you are challenged in court.

    This month of July 2010, our U.S. Federal courts have found the so called State of Arizona hate filled legislation namely “House Bill 2013″ and “SB1070″ Unconstitutional (So much for the intellect of Jan Brewer, “Did you read the bills you signed?”). But we all know that they will go crying to the Supreme Court of the United States, please, please, please go. We will fight you in Arizona, any other state, and yes in Washington DC. We will not tire, we will not be silent and we will persevere, I promise you.

    In my opinion the Republican Party has been taken over the most extreme of clans; the Baggers, Birthers and Blowhards (people who love to push their beliefs and hate on others while trying to take away the rights of those they just hate) and that’s who they need to extract from their party if they real want to win in November. Good Luck, because as they said in WACO, “We Ain’t Coming Out”.

    It’s all about politics: Jan Brewer you were never elected to be Governor, but you have no problem trying to get elected on the back of undocumented workers, you loser (sure you may win but the long-term effects to your so called State is just beginning). Here is a partial list of your hate filled legislation;

    1. S.B. 1070,
    2. House Bill 2013
    3. No permit conceal weapons law,
    4. The famous Birthers law,
    5. Banning Ethnic studies law,

    6. Could she be behind the Mural in Prescott, Arizona, ordered to be whiten,
    7. On deck to pass, no citizenship to babies born to undocumented workers,

    8. If she can read she should look up Arizona’s House Bill 2779 from two years ago (which was un-constitution and failed when legally challenged),
    9. The boycotted Martin Luther King Day, what idiots don’t want another holiday? Yes, you guessed it Arizona.

    Well Arizona, you can keep boycotting new holidays, passing hate filled legislation and the rest of our country will continue to challenge you in court of law and Boycott your so-called state.

    Lets face it, no one can real believe anything that comes out of Brewer’s mouth, in an interview, this year, in an attempt to gain sympathy, she first said her father had died in Germany fighting the Nazi in World War II (which ended 1945) but of course we find out the truth that father was never in Germany and died in California in 1955. But we are suppose to believe everything else she says, right!

    As they say in the World Cup: Goal!

    Brewer already had her own prison scandal of sorts: two of her staff members are lobbyists for Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) which stands to benefit from Arizona’s criminalization of undocumented immigrants and their being held as prisoners under SB 1070, it takes fear mongering to another level. Let’s all hope and pray that this latest prison escape does not turn out as badly as the Tison gang did in 1978, so Jan time to prep your answers for the Department of Corrections.

    So the Republicans are FINALLY admitting they’re OUT OF IDEAS and asking the public for input (Yah right they listen). Here’s my advice… if you want the Republican Party to make a comeback then QUIT being HO’s for those vain, self-serving, power mad, greed stricken silver spoon con artists that are running the multi-national corporations. Make Newt Gingrich, Tom Delay, Phil Gramm and those Conservative think tanks ADMIT they sold out the American middle class with the hidden legislation of the 90’s (in sort tell the truth).

    SOMEONE take responsibility for the Bush/Cheney DISASTER. Fess up to all the waste, fraud, abuse, scandal, sexual deviancy, corruption, lies, deregulation, incompetence, job outsourcing, off-shore tax evasion, reckless economics, corporate welfare, war profiteering, Constitutional violations AND a Corporate Crime Wave of epic proportions. The WORST looting of a nation’s wealth and resources in the history of MANKIND!

    And even after the American PEOPLE were just starting to recover then the ghost of Bush/Cheney oil drilling deregulation comes back to haunt the Gulf coast Red States. Y’know, those right-wing nutcases were chanting “drill baby drill” and get the government outta of their lives like they belonged to a fanatical cult. That oily disaster in the Gulf was NOT AN ACT OF GOD! It was the result of incompetent, scandalous government bureaucrats allowing the Oil Drilling Industrial Complex to cut corners… Collusion/Collaboration BETWEEN the Oil Industry and Federal Regulators? WHAT THE #*/!
    NOW these hypocrites are blaming Obama/Biden for not saving them from BP’s oily disaster.

    The Republican/Conservative culture didn’t take the time to consider our coastal borders could be breached (you listen to Rush Limbaugh instead of Greenpeace), people misplaced and natural environment destroyed for decades. All those tax dollars put into Homeland Security and we let Halliburton, BP and TransOcean do the equivalent of nuking the whole Gulf region of our nation. Oil radiating around Florida to reek havoc on the entire East Coast. AND FORGET ABOUT EATING THE SEAFOOD!

    I’m going to make sure the history textbooks show what a bunch of silly stupid, self-absorbed, victimized, apathetic COWARDS you Conservatives wackos turned out to be (1980-2010). “I’m wondering if those who support that so-called Tea Party Movement really know where Republicans are leading them? It seems like the Tea Party rank and file are being used by a bunch of vain, self-serving, evil, power mad, greed stricken, K-Street Con Artists. The scum of the earth who hide their hideous faces by using Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin as spokespersons. Just look at their agenda items. It‘s like Ken Lay’s or Jack Abramoff’s wet dream:
    1) Repeal Health Insurance Reform
    2) Privatize Social Security or abolish it.
    3) End Medicare
    4) Extend Bush Tax Cuts for wealthy and Big Oil
    5) Repeal Wall Street reform
    6) Protect those responsible for Gulf oil disaster and future environmental catastrophes
    7) Abolish or cut funding to Department of Education
    8) Abolish Dept. of Energy
    9) Abolish Environmental Protection Agency
    10) Repeal 17th Amendment
    11) Rewrite Bible and school textbooks,
    12) Replace JESUS with Glenn Beck, Frank Church with Joe McCarthy…
    13) After USA is destroyed by Republican Party low grade thought processes, BLAME Democrats/Liberals…”

    Remember when the Soviets used to say “America would be destroyed from within”? Who knew it would be the Republican Party to make the Commie’s dream come true. Is there REALLY Americans out there who were ignorant enough to vote for these Republican LOSERS? consciousmc.blogspot.com
