Arizona: heart of darkness

”Both chambers of the Arizona legislature have passed a bill that, if signed by Governor Jan Brewer (R), would remove the name Balbir Singh Sodhi from Arizona's 9/11 memorial and sell his plaque for scrap metal.

Sodhi was shot to death four days after 9/11 by a man who later told police he wanted to take revenge on the people responsible for 9/11. He picked Sodhi because of his Sikh turban. Like most practitioners of the Sikh religion, Sodhi was from India, not the Middle East.”

The above quote is from the Hufferington Post in an article on April 28, 2011 by Dawn Tao. Sodhi, a gas station attendant in Meza Arizona, was killed by a man who mistook him for an Arab because of his turban. Arizona State Rep. John Kavanagh (R) who sponsored the bill (HB2230) is also a friend of J.T. Ready and the Arizona National Socialist Movement or NSM which is the local branch of a neo Nazis party. Shown below is a video of their annual Arizona parade in 2009 with the state representative present at the rally around the 1.07 minute point.
