| Earlier this week, Boycott Watch wrote about how
President Obama is inherently justifying the Arizona boycott by threatening a
lawsuit and why that is dangerous to America.
Yesterday on Your World with Neil Cavuto, Stuart Varney reported the U.S.
Border Patrol and the U.S. Department of Education have both cancelled events
in Arizona. Later in the day, it was learned that the California Legislature
wants to adopt an official state boycott of Arizona.
Although Boycott Watch has correctly predicted the
boycott will fail,
Boycott Watch continues to warn America of the dangers of the national rift the
boycott creates. As stated in our first article about the Arizona boycott, this
is the first time states have boycotted other states
since Abraham Lincoln
was President. Now, the U.S. Government is getting in on the act,
compounding the dangers of this boycott: Federal participation is likely to be
the single factor which makes the Arizona boycott effective.
"It is disturbing that U.S. government agencies are
participating in the boycott, and for some reason President Obama has remained
silent. I hope these event cancellations are isolated incidents, otherwise thus
may quickly evolve into America's Second Civil War." said Fred Taub,
President of Boycott Watch. "All politics aside, there is no excuse for
any President to take sides in dividing people. Since President Obama found the
time for his Beer Summit, surely he should make time to end this state-to-state
boycott, as well as reject any federal venue changes because of his personal
objections to any states laws. I
therefore, my call for President Obama to make direct statements against
boycotting Arizona. Additionally, we remind President Obama that Arizona does
not deserve the same treatment as Cuba and that Legal challenges belong in the
courtroom, not in the wallets of individuals."
