AZ Assholes: Russell Pearce

Posted: November 22, 2010 in AZ Assholes, Illegal Immigration

Russell Pearce, architect of SB1070 and other anti-immigrant state legislation such as HB2281 Ethnic Studies ban, has known associations with the NSM, the National Socialist Movement (a neo-Nazi group).  The NSM conducted a rally with official permission on Nov. 13th at the Federal Courthouse in downtown Phoenix. An article at Crooks and Liars show Russell Pearce in a photo with the leader of the NSM, JT Ready.

At the other end of the spectrum, a group of undocumented college students held a protest rally Thursday, Nov. 18th.  They calmly and peacefully wanted to appeal to Rep. Pearce’s better nature, asking that he support them in their effort to become legal citizens.  Specifically they wanted him to support The Dream Act.  The students were not allowed in to see Rep. Pearce. 

It seems that Russell Pearce makes the time to take photos with neo-Nazis that advocate evil ideas and the basic overthrow of the Constitution, but he doesn’t have the time to talk to peaceful and hard-working college students who love this country and want to uphold its principles.
