Bright Eyes Records Song For Arizona Boycott Group

Categories: News


Bright Eyes has recorded a single for the group of musicians boycotting Arizona.

"Coyote Song," can be bought for $2 here if you want to support people boycotting our state. Or you can give money to people actually working in to make a difference on the ground in Arizona by buying our compilation, A Line In The Sand, here.

Yeah, we did the benefit song thing months ago. Cuz, ya know, we live here and actually care about the state, unlike Bright Eyes' singer Conor Oberst who's happy to play pro-boycott shows in Los Angeles.

"American ideals of democracy and liberty are built on the foundation that all people, regardless of race or country of origin, deserve fair and equal treatment by the government," Oberst said in a letter. "We've all seen the power music has to spread messages of solidarity and hope. Please join the Sound Strike Songs project by donating a track and help us... enable people to continue to dream."

Or you could just forward $2 to The Florence Project, a deserving charity, certainly, and circumvent these haters.

They don't pay taxes. Paid cash. Send cash to Mexico to fund the travel of more illegal immigrants. Willing to take lower wages and flooding the job market. They are felons. Deportation is the only answer. The constitution guarantees the right to the PURSUIT of happiness to American citizens. Not illegal immigrants.

It's a common misconception that illegal immigrants steal jobs from our local communities; in fact they create new jobs.

Thanks, BRIGHT-EYES!!! I'm going to buy "Coyote Song". And I'm also going to continue to boycott Ariaona and all things Arizonan.

Ohhhh, and by the way -- the boycott has NOT been called off. It's picking up speed as we speak.

Someone should be spending more time spell checking their angry rants.If you get over your middle-school defensive writing style I here they offer writing courses at your local community college.

You mean live "here" not hear. Didn't you call Bruce Springstein a "douche" on Facebook?

Martin Cizner or Glen BEck whatever your name may be, you should check your facts before you write non factual articles. All proceeds generated by this sale will go directly to the Florence Project. Maybe you should investigate the work this important Arizona Legal organization does. Or maybe you should just quit your journalist career and look into fiction or sci-fi, you seem to be very creative!

Funny, I don't hear anyone screaming about how the boycott is killing their business.

By not advocating against illegals, you are encouraging them. By encouraging them you are adding to the 234 (so far) dead Mexicans found in the desert this year alone.

Sympathy can have consequence, too.
