A number of Hollywood sh1tbags and political whores have called for a boycott of Florida for their “Stand Your Ground” laws in regards to self defense in the wake of the Zimmerman acquittal. Jesse Jackson just called for a boycott of Florida.
“We can boycott Florida, cut conventions in Florida, for its ‘stand your ground’ laws,” said Jackson, speaking on a panel at the National Urban League’s annual conference in Philadelphia. “If we can boycott South Africa and bring it down, we should boycott Florida and bring it down.”
I want to know why they’re targeting just Florida because 30 other states have those laws, too. That’s nearly half of the country, and the list of states includes Jackson’s own Illinois. Atlantic lists the states;
Alabama, Alaska, California,Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts (though the term is used very loosely there), Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming
In addition, Alaska’s SYG law takes effect in September. President Obama even sponsored a SYG bill when he was in the Illinois legislature, despite the fact that he opposes it now when it’s politically expedient to do so.
So look, why don’t you anti-SYG idiots boycott the rest of us, too? We need a break from your presence in our states, too. By the way, that’s half of the country you should be boycotting not just Florida. Put up or shut up.
