Illegal Immigrant Activists Call for Boycott of Iced Tea Made in New York

Why?  Because it's called "Arizona Iced Tea".  These people apparently don't understand the concept of branding.  I'm guessing they think "Domino's Pizza" is made from real dominoes:
Opponents of Arizona's new anti-immigrant law are calling for a boycott of the state's products - including the popular Arizona Iced Tea.

The problem: Arizona Iced Tea is actually brewed in New York.

Online, misguided tea fans vowed to switch to Lipton or Snapple.

"Dear Arizona: If you don't change your immigration policy, I will have to stop drinking your enjoyable brand of iced tea," Twittered Jody Beth in Los Angeles.

"It is the drink of fascists," wrote Travis Nichols in Chicago.

The company did not return messages asking if they planned to set the public straight.

Founded in Brooklyn in 1992, the firm was based in Queens before moving into a new $35 million headquarters in Nassau County last year.
Liberal politicians are jumping off the stupidity cliff as fast as they can to call for boycotts of Arizona. It's quite a feat to be an officeholder, sworn to uphold the law, and then call for the boycott of a state which dared to say they would enforce the law. And they're doing it in the face of public opinion which right now is 60%+ in favor of the Arizona law.

I guess intelligence has never been a requirement for public office.

Every state in our United States needs to draft a resolution like AZ!

Those Dems, they don't much listen to the public, do they?
