Funny how some conservatives are always against boycotts affecting Arizona businesses, unless they're the ones doing the boycotting.
Weirdly, the brain surgeons at BAN -- recalled ex-state Senate President Russell Pearce and his mini-me, BAN founder Sean McCaffrey -- refer to their boycott as a "buy-cott," when, clearly, they are encouraging their "members" (i.e., those on BAN's e-mail list) not to do business with companies purchasing ads in New Times.
See, a "buy-cott" is the opposite of a boycott, wherein those participating purchase stuff from businesses. But apparently both McCaffrey and Pearce are too stupid to realize what a "buy-cott" is, or even Google the term.
In any case, BAN's boycott fits neatly into Pearce's pattern of destroying Arizona's economy -- as his relentless bigotry and his pimping of brown-bashing laws have plunged this state even further into the Great Recession than it already was.
Bigotry is bad for business, and when Arizona has a reputation as being filled with racist yahoos such as Pearce, business people stay away. Sure, the state probably would be hurting during a recession, but Pearce's racist shenanigans have made the situation far worse.
