Glenn Grothman: boycotting Arizona tactic of totalitarianism?

Hi everyone,

Glenn doesn't like MATC's decision to boycott Arizona businesses and conference sites.

Sen. Grothman: Grothman to MATC Board: Time to rescind Arizona boycott resolution

Okay, perhaps free speech in Glenn's mind only applies to corporations and not public institutions, now that corporations are persons, but here's what caught my eye: a new meme.

“I move in very conservative circles and have never heard anybody suggest not doing business with companies in states and cities with so-called sanctuary-city laws, same-sex marriage statutes, euthanasia laws, etc. – this tactic is purely a tool of the totalitarian left,” said Grothman.

Note the uptick in rhetoric here. No longer simply the crazy left or the socialist left or the communist left... 'totalitarian left.'

An ironic sentiment coming from a politician who has worked harder than anyone else in the state to take power away from the people and the ballot box, and transfer it to the marketing budgets of corporations.
