Surprise! Arpaio is Clueless About the First Amendment

Surprise! Arpaio is Clueless About the First Amendment July 9, 2015

I know this will come as a huge shock to you all. Fascist Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio has no clue whatsoever what the First Amendment means. He says that those who are criticizing his birther buddy Donald Trump are violating his First Amendment rights.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio defended his fellow anti-immigrant birther Donald Trump last week, saying that Trump didn’t mean “to say anything derogatory” about “all the great people from Mexico” when he said of Mexican immigrants, “They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists.”…

“Well, first of all, I thought we had freedom of speech in this country, and he’s running for president, he has a right to voice his opinion,” Arpaio said. “He did talk about the birth certificate in the past, I’ve been working on that. So, I don’t know, I guess you’ve got to be politically correct when you run for office. But once again, I don’t believe he meant to say anything derogatory about all the people, all the great people from Mexico.”

Dear Mr. Arpaio —

Let me explain this as politely as I can. No, screw that. Listen to me, you fucking moron. Donald Trump is being criticized, which has nothing whatsoever to do with his First Amendment rights. In fact, by your own “reasoning” you are violating the First Amendment rights of Trump’s critics by criticizing them. No wonder you have so consistently violated the Constitution since you’ve been in office, you don’t have a fucking clue what it means.
