Maybe some day these linguine-spined politicians might realize there’s no appeasing the jack-booted left.
Gov. Jan Brewer on Wednesday vetoed a Republican bill that set off a national debate over gay rights, religion and discrimination and subjected Arizona to blistering criticism from major corporations and political leaders from both parties.
Brewer’s decision defused a national furor over gay rights and religious freedom.
The bill backed by Republicans in the Legislature was designed to give added protection from lawsuits to people who assert their religious beliefs in refusing service to gays. But opponents called it an open attack on gays that invited discrimination.
The bill thrust Arizona into the national spotlight last week after both chambers of the state legislature approved it. As the days passed, more and more groups, politicians and average citizens weighed in against Senate Bill 1062. Many took to social media to criticize the bill, calling it an attack on gay and lesbian rights.
Faced with extortion from all sides, Brewer caved. So this appeasement called off the dogs, right? Well, not exactly.
This guy isn’t pleased:
Just because Jan Brewer did good thing and vetoed #AZ1062 doesn't mean she's not still a vicious anti-gay, anti-immigrant extremist

Nice. How’s that working out, Governor?
Everyone bagging on AZ rn can take comfort in the fact Brewer is a greedy cunt & will veto the anti-gay bill bc big business hates it.

Isn’t that special? Tell us how you really feel, folks!
The only reason Governor Bonefinger #Brewer vetoed the gay Jim Crow racist bill was for financial reasons. She's still a Teabag bitch

A real shame these evil right-wingers are so intolerant.
