Lady Gaga: No To SB1070

Lady Gaga is joining other stars who have altered their Arizona tour dates because of the state’s new SB 1070 law, but with a twist. Lady Gaga is not canceling her Arizona tour dates, she is simply asking her fans to actively protest Arizona SB 1070 while attending her concert.

The intention of this controversial law, which went into effect on July 29, is to crack down on immigration. It allows police to detain people they suspect of being illegal immigrants and Lady Gaga isn't having it.

Lady Gaga wants Arizona fans to protest

But rather than boycott Arizona, one-of-a-kind Lady Gaga did the Phoenix show and addressed the debate to her fans. She is very critical of this law and urged the huge crowd to join her in taking a stand. Lady Gaga had "Stop SB 1070" written on her forearm.

Lady Gaga told the sold-out crowd a story about a boy whose home was raided over a minor law infraction and how his brother was deported over it. She called the incident "disgusting." She later dedicated a song to the boy.

With regard to her music friends boycotting Arizona, she said, "Do you really think that us dumb (expletive) pop stars are going to collapse the economy of Arizona?"

"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" Un-constitution (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: Gooooooooal!
