You know about the open-borders sympathizing Phoenix Suns and their “Los Suns” uniform stunt.
They’ve got the support of both the basketball and baseball players associations:
The National Basketball Players Association said in a statement yesterday that the Arizona immigration law is “disappointing and disturbing” and called for its repeal or modification. The players’ union also praised the Suns.
“We applaud the actions of Phoenix Suns players and management and join them in taking a stand against the misguided efforts of Arizona lawmakers,” said the statement by NBPA Executive Director Billy Hunter.
Last week, the Major League Baseball Players Association also criticized the Arizona law and said the union “will consider additional steps necessary to protect the rights and interests of our members.”
And basketball and baseball fans who support immigration enforcement, national security, and the rule of law should consider taking the proper steps to protect their rights and interests — by voting with their feet and refusing to do business with open-borders sports organizations.
Perhaps Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver should stop shoving politics down his ticket-buyers’ throats, mind his own business — and stop using our taxpayers dollars to keep him afloat. A reminder from the Phoenix New Times:
Forget the expensive business conferences: The greatest example of government bailout excess may just be Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver, whose banks have taken $140 million in Troubled Asset Relief Program funds.
Yeah, it must be nice to be the CEO of a couple of banks that need massive public assistance and still be able to afford your own a basketball team.
“Afford” being a relative term. With trade rumors raging, Sarver’s reportedly seeking to shed $40 million from his team’s payroll in order to make ends meet. In other words, you’re helping Sarver keep his banks even as he short-changes your team.
New uniform proposal: Los Moochers. If the shirt fits…
