Another Nazi Link to Arizona Legislature, Authors of Controversial Anti-Imigrant Bill?

Com­ment: It may be that Rus­sell Pearce–spon­sor of the con­tro­ver­sial anti-Immi­grant bill passed in Ari­zonais not the only Ari­zona leg­is­la­tor with a pen­chant for Nazi ide­ol­o­gy.

“Ari­zona Repub­li­can Leader Fol­lows White Suprema­cists (Updat­ed); gawker.com; 5/3/2010.

Don Black is a Flori­da-based white suprema­cist who is banned from the UK for incit­ing hatred. Ari­zona State Sen­ate Major­i­ty leader Chuck Gray—a pro­po­nent of the recent immi­gra­tion bill—follows him, and anoth­er white pow­er feed, on Twit­ter. . . . Its Twit­ter account, and anoth­er neo-Nazi feed linked to it, are among 4,819 that Ari­zona State Sen­ate Major­i­ty Leader Chuck Gray (top) fol­lows. (See screen­shots below.) Storm­front does not rec­i­p­ro­cate, however—the group fol­lows no one. Which means that Gray, or who­ev­er is respon­si­ble for his Twit­ter account, sought out the racist orga­ni­za­tion specif­i­cal­ly and decid­ed its tweets were essen­tial read­ing. Per­haps because they’ve linked heav­i­ly on their feed to sto­ries about the recent Ari­zona immi­gra­tion bill and sim­i­lar­ly racist-tinged mea­sures in the state to remove teach­ers with “eth­nic” accents from class­rooms? Of course, this isn’t the first time Ari­zon­a’s right-wing politi­cians have been linked with racist groups. . . .
