“Don’t Tread on Me” can’t mean “Do Tread on that Other Guy”

The Other 98% just posted an open letter to Tea Party leaders asking that they stand with us and oppose Arizona’s draconian Immigration law.

If the Tea Party is to have any credibility at all, it must reject this obvious assault on our American ideals of Liberty. Simply put: The Tea Party and its leaders can no longer claim to stand on the side of “freedom” and against “tyranny” if they do not publicly reject SB1070.

Help us spread the word. Please co-sign our letter and share this link with your personal and professional networks: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/the-other-/the-tea-party-dont-tread_b_590134.html

Then co-sign our letter here.

Because if “Don’t Tread On Me” really means “Tread on that Other Guy”, or worse, “Tread on that (Brown) Guy”, then the Tea Party is fighting not for the America of our Founders, but for the totalitarian nightmare they so declaim.
We need comprehensive immigration reform that doesn’t sacrifice the very ideals for which America stands. Demand that the Tea Party support the same and oppose this abominable law.
