Along with the praise and help in the polls Governor Jan Brewer's received after signing SB 1070, Arizona's controversial, new immigration law, the governor's also getting a little heat from those opposed to the new statute.
By "heat," we mean people are comparing her to Nazis.
Public Enemy's Chuck D is the latest to bash Jan, this time in a new track the rap legend's laid down called Tear Down That Wall and in interviews hyping the song.
In an interview with Billboard Magazine, D called Brewer "a Hitler" and bashed the new law, saying, "Tear Down That Wall is something that has its own life....I talked about the wall not only just dividing the U.S. and Mexico but the states of California, New Mexico, and Texas. But Arizona, it's like, come on. Now they're going to enforce a law that talks about basically racial profiling."
Brewer's been compared to Nazis in the past -- last time it even prompted the governor to flat-out lie about her father's military service (or lack thereof -- it was later determined that Brewer's dad never actually served in the military. Check it out here) and we want to know what you think: Is it fair to compare Brewer to Nazis?
Keep in mind Hitler had millions of people killed -- Brewer just signed a bill.
