Amnesty Backers: Boycott AZ Iced Tea!

From the New York Daily News:

Opponents of immigration law call for boycott of Arizona Iced Tea – but it is brewed in New York!

April 28, 2010

Opponents of Arizona’s new anti-immigrant law are calling for a boycott of the state’s products – including the popular Arizona Iced Tea.

The problem: Arizona Iced Tea is actually brewed in New York.

Online, misguided tea fans vowed to switch to Lipton or Snapple.

"Dear Arizona: If you don’t change your immigration policy, I will have to stop drinking your enjoyable brand of iced tea," Twittered Jody Beth in Los Angeles.

"It is the drink of fascists," wrote Travis Nichols in Chicago.

The company did not return messages asking if they planned to set the public straight.

Founded in Brooklyn in 1992, the firm was based in Queens before moving into a new $35 million headquarters in Nassau County last year.

The new state law allows cops to demand citizenship papers from anyone they think looks illegal.

Actual Arizona firms facing a boycott: Cold Stone Creamery, U-Haul and Best Western.

Of course there is tea involved – and that’s a red flag right there.

But still, how kind of the Daily Worker News to tell the sans culottes who they should be boycotting.

    All I can say is DUH!

  2. OxyCon says:

    This is good new for me because around here you can never find Arizona Green Tea with Honey and Gensing on the shelf! lol

  3. NoNeoCommies says:

    Well, we never accused them of being smart.
    After all, they believe in global warming, the utopia of communism, a sentient mother earth, the command economy…

    1) THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION OCCUPATION of our country. President Obama and the majority party are going to force through what they like to call–Comprehensive Immigration Reform. It’s really MASS AMNESTY. SO ITS OUR JOB TO STOP THIS TRAVESTY? There are thousands Pro-Sovereignty, anti-illegal immigration small groups and larger organizations around the country, that doesn’t have the backing of George Soros–a Socialist, the Ford Foundation and equally Pro-Amnesty Business conglomerates and of course the open border crazies. So we must organize, not in just small entities, but arrange through one central group like NUMBERSUSA–to get ready for the political shove and push for this coming Amnesty. NumbersUSA has around a million members that want the immigration enforcement laws–ENFORCED. The real double fence constructed, E-Verify, 287 G permanent to reduce illegal immigration.

    2) Millions of American demoralized by each administration, who think they have no power base, is wrong? Everybody–no matter the color of your skin, should become wise, to understand what’s happening behind their backs. Whether your Black, Hispanic,White, Indian of any faith denomination, GOP, DEM or Independent and believe in enforcing the 1986 immigration law–that can be just as easily amended. RONALD REAGANS LAW WOULD WORK–IF ENFORCED? Join Tea Baggers, and everybody else who as one majority group to use the power of your vote. You have immeasurable power to be ready to fight the coming immigration battle. It’s about America’s future, about overpopulation, our failing infrastructure and stops these incompetent politicians from selling your children’s future. Starting with Arizona—every state should have the right to enforce its immigration laws, if the federal government refuses to enforce those laws. They find billions of dollars to fight far distant foreign wars, but will not spend the money to protect America’s inhabitants from all-encompassing criminals entering our country. If states boycott Arizona, then we must boycott any state that does exactly this. We must support Arizona because this backlash has been formed by the Libertarian, lobotomized groups who want unfettered movement though our borders.

    3) Even our National Security is a risk because nothing is done to enforce the border. You are not alone? We will not be dictated to by any pro-Amnesty group. You have thousands of friends, but we need to unite in this common cause. Talk to your relatives. We can no longer be a HMO or free welfare handouts to the world. You may not want to demonstrate in the streets, because of violence from the other side.We are civilized so we don’t throw frozen soda cans at the opponents. But you can join (without any cost or danger to your personal information) by standing firm with NumbersUSA. Google the address and sign up, to be alerted to all Washington inside emergencies. As one massive organized group we can stop this encroachment by 20 to 30 million foreign nationals into our jobs, destroying our culture. You will called ugly names to distract you, so you keep your real thoughts hidden in the shadows. But we must stop this as millions more will come—and keep on coming in the form of chain migration. NOTHING will stop this invasion unless we as one voice of one people say—ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. This is our country, our flag, our language and our constitution that gives us the right to free speech, that Liberals would deny us. Teach yourself who your enemy is at NumbersUSA in both parties and who must be removed in coming elections.

    When did liberals ever think before acting.

    • Reality Bytes says:

      Bill – Thinking?! THINKING??!! There’s No Thinking In Acting!!!

      Acting is All Liberals Know How to Do. Thinking is not part of their process.

  6. EvaTheFrisbeeDog says:

    Yes, indeed, let’s boycott it…it’s brewed in New York. While we’re at it let’s boycott products from California, like their over-priced wine, and Detroit’s Government Motors products. Hey, BMWs and Merz are built in the red states of SC and AL with no union labor.

    • Liberals Make Great Speedbumps says:

      Don’t forget that those four wheeled rolling death machines carrying the Toyota banner are free of union taint also.

  7. crate says:

    Good ! This is a bunch of fools. Unfortunately they are in power!

  8. AcornsRNutz says:

    I think I’ll boycott grey goose vodka because it is the drink of communists, even if it is made in France.

  9. beautyofreason says:

    “It is the drink of fascists,”

    This quote provides a lot of insight into the liberal world view. If you, as a Westerner, do not decimate your own laws from the inside out and allow open borders to any group of people, no matter what their education or political beliefs or any other factor, then you will be ridiculed as a bigot, a racist, or the big F.

    Islamic, non-Western countries, African countries, and even Mexico are tough on their immigration policies. Ask me how Mexico dealt with Civil War refugees from Guatemala.

    I am hispanic and I loathe illegal immigration; do I give the left headaches for not towing their ideology on account of my ancestry?

  10. Reality Bytes says:

    Rush is on this now. Yo Rush BOYCOTT PELOSI’S RAVENSWOOD!!!

    Not that you would drink that swill. Thank God Screaming Eagle is (God Willing) owned by a decent conservative American.

  11. swee says:

    Why boycott any good business during the height of a serious recession? I mean they’re providing jobs, good grief.

    • Reality Bytes says:

      You’re right Swee. MLK & Ghandi were way off base.

      Let me axed you a question there Swee (as if that’s your real name), why are boycotts acceptable when directed at conservatives, but not when targeting liberals?

      I’ll wait.

  12. Reality Bytes says:

    I knew it! Screaming Eagle is owned by Stan Kroenke!!! Who is Stan? He is related by marriage to none other than Stan Walton & has recently offered to buy 100% of the STL Rams. Yes…that would include the part that ElRushbo was in line to acquire.

    So! Let’s review:

    Ravenswood Wine owned by ultra left wing Pelosi & spouse = rated mid 80’s (your basic swill)

    Screaming Eagle owned by conservative Stan Koenke = an unheard of 99pt wine…

    Coincidence? I think not. Think of Ravenswood as the wine equal to her health care plan. CRAP!

  13. misanthropicus says:

    So the left-wing again tries to sabotage a fully warranted law and to further inflict their America-destroying agenda – here’s how –

    A) When one can’t maintain his grip on political power for furthering his intentions by gerrymandering, or other Chicago electoral malfeasance, the next solution is to inject in the tissue of this (already withering) nation 13 million alliens, aliens who:
    1) have no sympathy or interest for the history and ways of this station,
    2) and who who would greatly dillute the existing and, alas! already supper-extended demographic make-up of America,
    3) and who will make for steadfast “vote early and often”, government (read Democrat) indebted clients –

    B) Further, actually the main driving force that is causing/ fanning the fuss over this Arizona immigration law (fuss which is totally artificial, anyway, invented by MSM and libs, since the country by a large margin aproves the measure), comes from another, more liberals-distressing issue – which is the likelyhood that Arizona may become a trend setter in the presidential eligibility matter, too, by passing the law that would force any presidential candidate who want to be on the Arizona ballot to prove his/ her constitutional eligibility –

    Situation the Dems heartily dread, since Obama clearly looks like having a problem here, and, in the eventuality that that bill will become law, the ensuing show-down over this matter in 2012 will make the Democrat Party explode – bye-bye – no sorrowful memories –

    C) Further, as tactics of intimmidation invoking conservatives and liberals who are concerned about government expansion here – There is nothing in the Arizona immigration law that should worry an authentic conservative or libertarian – this rhetoric comes like in many similar situations (same sex-marriage comes to mind), single issue liberals trolls or saboteurs who try to:
    1) dynamite this trend they hate (see A above)-
    2) torpedo, dillute the legitimacy and power of the trend (see all those parasites, faux libertarians who nested themselves in the Tea Party) –

    Support Arizona citizenry – the consequences of this law are akll positive and the entire country will benefit from them – hope more states will adopt the Arizone ways –

  14. Petronius says:

    Boycotters “vowed to switch to Lipton or Snapple.”

    A few years ago they were boycotting Snapple because it was mistakenly identified with the KKK. (The little “k” on the label stands for kosher.)

    But that boycott is soon forgotten, and now they’ll drink Snapple in preference to an Arizona Tea that’s not made in Arizona. Go figure.

    So drink it up. Drink Snapple until you puke, you stupid commies.

    It’s a Dr Pepper product, and Mrs Petronius and I could use the extra dividends.

  15. proreason says:

    Rush made a great point today, even for him, just in passing.

    He said, does anybody think that if the Hispanic vote was a 80-90% lock for Republicans, that there would be even a peep out of the libwits about the new Arizona law?

  16. leerm8680 says:

    I never have been a tea-drinker, but today I’m going to buy not one, but two of the Arizona Iced Teas.
