Arpaio Gives Interview to Anti-Semitic Paper

In the completely unsurprising news of the day, fascist Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio is more than happy to give interviews to far-right, conspiracy-mongering, anti-Semitic websites like American Free Press. Right Wing Watch reports:

“I have a gun and badge. I don’t talk. I take action,” said the legendary lawman from Maricopa County, Arizona. “I’m against amnesty, and no one should receive a get-out-of-jail-free card. I believe in following the law.”…

Arpaio recounted how his efforts to uphold the law have been undermined by the federal government. “The president is trying to circumvent our laws to pacify the Hispanic community,” he said. “I spent 27 years as a DEA [Drug Enforcement Administration] regional director in Mexico City, Texas and Arizona, plus 21 years as a sheriff. With over 50 years of law enforcement experience, I’d say this gives me some credibility. Yet, not once has anyone from Obama’s Cabinet asked for my opinion or assistance. They don’t want local law enforcement helping them enforce the law. It’s very sad.”

Or maybe they just don’t want racist tyrants like you doing it. To call American Free Press a site for kooks would be a vast understatement. Their latest podcast featured a guy who doesn’t think anyone was killed in the Sandy Hook shootings. And they just loved that failed “White Man March” a few weeks ago. Arpaio fits right in.

    A “White Man March” in DC? I thought that was called “commuting.”

    Hey Joe! How’s your ‘special posse’ investigation into Obama’s birth certificate going?

    Didn’t Ol’ Joe refuse to give an interview to NPR or MSNBC or someone awhile back because they’re biased?

    “The president is trying to circumvent our laws to pacify the Hispanic community,”

    Pacify the Hispanic community, like they’re a recently conquered people waging an insurgency against their imperial masters? Shit, he’s not even pretending anymore.
