Al Sharpton: We’re Ready to Commit Civil Disobedience Over Arizona Immigration Bill
Gateway Pundt ^ | 4/25/10 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 04/25/2010 1:01:57 PM PDT by blueyon

70% of Arizona voters agree with new immigration legislation signed into law on Friday. But, not Al Franken or Barack Obama. And, New York City’s Al Franken says he’s ready to organize protests and commit civil disobedience over the new Arizona immigration law. The New York Post reported, via Free Republic:

The Rev. Al Sharpton says he will challenge Arizona’s new immigration bill in court and on the streets.

Sharpton is joining Lillian Rodriguez Lopez from the Hispanic Federation to announce a legal challenge to the bill. They say activists are also prepared to commit civil disobedience to fight the Arizona immigration bill.

Yes, wow, imagine that: a law that says you have to obey the law or don’t come here.

Isn’t AZ’s law just saying the completely unremarkable conclusion that if you’re here illegally, you’re here illegally, and you won’t be staying if we find you here illegally?

Doesn’t U.S. law itself make it illegal for illegals to be here, or is there something about “illegal” that I am not getting? Is Al Sharpton saying that under federal law people who are here illegally are not here illegally, and therefore cannot ever be treated as if they are here illegally?

If they disobey the law does that mean they will be supporting only legal immigration?

We can only wish. the left is fomenting trouble and is looking for any reason to so do.

Al will find Arizona to be utterly unlike Noo Yawk, where the corrupt cops let hustler clowns like himself act out.

That will not be the case in AZ, especially Maricopa County.

According to the first paragraph Al Sharpton and Al Franken are one and the same.

::::::
Well, of course, because the law only applies to those who do NOT empower liberals at the voting booth or with union dues...what the author misses is that Al and Al (idiot Franken too) are truly guilty of sedition already — I wonder what else THEY are going to end up being guilty of ?? Conspiracy to break the law???

“Recommend “civil disobedience” somewhere besides Arizona, Rev”

Pssst—only liberals are allowed the right to civil disobedience. The right is not allowed to even have the freedom of speech without being charged with sedition.

It can only HURT his cause for him to get TV face time!

Ok...where's the clinton posse that wanted to arrest people for what they "might do"? Here's Al Sharpton - case example for frontal lobotomys - promising "civil disobedience"...and from clinton....crickets".

But the law was passed, 70% of the people are FOR it, and they didn't even have to resort to "reconciliation" to get it passed.

Let them march, but the first punch that's thrown, the first window broken, or the first car overturned, call in the storm troopers with tear gas and rubber bullets. Nip it in the bud.

Standing up against tyranny has got to start somewhere, or no one has any future in this country, but the tyrants.

[the bill] ... requires police to question people about their immigration status — including asking for identification — if they suspect someone is in the country illegally

Does that mean the Arizona State Police will be requird to question Obama the next time he comes in-state?

So illegal must be treated as legal...

To someone with no belief in property rights I guess that makes sense...

I guess whiling their marching their car, their house, their money, all their stuff is all legal for anyone to take and use

Big Al:

He says he owns no suits, but has ‘’access’’ to a dozen or so. He says he owns no television set because the one he watches in his home was purchased by a company he runs. He says he has no checking accounts, no savings accounts, no credit cards, no debit cards, no mutual funds, no stocks, no bonds, no paintings, no antiques. The only thing he admits to owning is a $300 wristwatch and a 20-year-old wedding ring.

The finances of the Rev. Al Sharpton have a somewhat troubled history. He was indicted on charges of income tax fraud and stealing from charitable donors in 1989, but was eventually acquitted at a trial. In 1993, he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of failing to file a tax return for 1986. His eponymous promotional company has no official documents on record with the state. As recently as two years ago, he drew no salary, but he still manages to send his daughters to an expensive and respected private school.

Mr. Sharpton has always been studiously circumspect when talking about his pocketbook in public, yet this month he suddenly announced that he could not afford to pay a judgment entered against him in the Tawana Brawley defamation case. As a result, he gave a lengthy deposition to lawyers for the man that he was found to have defamed, Steven A. Pagones, a former prosecutor whom Mr. Sharpton claimed had raped Ms. Brawley 13 years ago.

The deposition was never made public, though excerpts from it were given to The New York Times by a supporter of Mr. Pagones. It offers a privileged peek into the byzantine world of Mr. Sharpton’s personal finances as he considers running for mayor. In its combative back-and-forth and unintended humor, it sketches a portrait of the fiscal Al Sharpton, a man who claims to own virtually nothing but has almost everything he needs.
