Seriously, what the fuck?
I have been trying to shy away from politics as much as possible for a while now. It hurts my head and makes the ulcers act up - often exacerbating my already egregious insomnia. But now AZ has passed a bill drafted by eugenicist white supremacists and spearheaded by a fucking neo-Nazi loving white supremacist loon.
Greg posted a Rachel Maddow segment that delved into the background of this lunatic fucking bill, asking the very reasonable question; What does an illegal immigrant look like? For the record, the first illegal immigrant I ever met was paler than I am - a New Zealander. Somehow I doubt cops in AZ would even think to fuck with her.
There is more than a little bit of a shit storm about this bill. This bill means that anyone who is suspected of being illegal, who does not have their ;proof of citizenship they will spend six months in jail, even if they are not here illegally. I am not sure exactly how this is supposed to work, because a drivers license is not proof. I don't generally carry my fucking birth certificate with me when I am out and about.
But the fucking moron in chief of AZ seems to be clear that racial profiling is illegal and will not be allowed. She does not however, know exactly what an illegal immigrant looks like.
I am guessing they look brown.
Oh, but Sheriff Joe says not to worry...
