America’s leading racists, Barack Obama and Eric Holder know their enemy when they see him. Sheriff Arpiao has been upholding law in Arizona for many years. The Sheriff has been charged with stonewalling a probe into allegations he is arresting an unusual number of brownish skinned people who speak only Mexican Spanish crossing into American territory surreptitously, many causing crime and displacement of American workers.
Sheriff Arpiao, unlike Attorney General Eric Holder, is an elected official. He has a widely held reputation of doing something about criminals and their crimes when he discovers them.
According to a today’s Wall Street Journal article, “Government Sues Arizona Sheriff”, by Evan Perez, Arpiao ” has used his post to carry out operations aimed at detaining immigrants and turning them over to federal law enforcement for deportation.
Civil-rights froups have long called Mr. Arpaio’s policies discriminatory. Soon after Attorney General Eric Holder took office last year, the Justice Department said it was investigating those complaints and looking into possible violations of Hispanic’s civil rights.”
The Obama Justice Department suit …. stated the “Sheriffs’s Office receives millions of dollars o federal funding and is required to cooperate with federal investigations as a condition of receiving that money. The complaint cites a public statement by Mr. Arpaio in which he said he wouldn’t cooperate with the probe.”
Comment: I have known about Joe Arpaio for several years. From the limits of bits and pieces of information regarding how he enforces the law in Maricopa County, I have been a quiet fan of his….enough so that I knew his reputation and what he looked like, I could recognize him in an instant when I saw him on Fox’s O’Reilly screen. I stopped everything to listen.
He was one cool fish and a man of few words and fewer smiles. He’s about my age and he’s about my school of thinking.
I could never come to be this strong, deliberate and devoted gutsy lawman. I smile too much and sometime yack when I shouldn’t.
Traditional America would advise it’s better for a law man to say very little. It keeps everyone guessing. I have never been a lawman.
By coincidence I received in this afternoon’s post, a mailing from this very Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
It read: “Did you hear that the Mexican Drug Cartel has placed a $1,000,000 bounty on my head???”
Sometimes respect is gained via the enemies made.
“You have probably heard by now that a federal judge blocked key provisions of Arizona’s tough anti-illegal immingration bill. This new law would have strengthened law enforcement’s ability to identify, arrest and detain those who are in this country illegally.
I supported and pushed for this new law 100%. Even before this law was passed, I was the only law enforcement official in this state enforcing all the laws that our federal and state legislatures put in place to combat illegal immigration and human smuggling.
Because I have taken the lead over the years by enforcing existing laws abainst illegal immigration, I have become the target of attack by radical, left-wing, open-borders extremists and the ultra-liberal Obama administration.”
Mr. Arpaio knows his enemy well.
He continues: “I’ve been sued, picketed, burned and beheaded in effigy, and even had the Reverend Al Sharpton come to Phoenix twice to lead protests against me. Some of these radical opponents have even gone so far as to openly call for my assassination!
Joe says he won’t back down. He asks for donations to help him in his efforts. “President Barack Obama’s Justice Department then threatened to sue me if I didn’t back down and conform to their turn-a-blind-eye strategy when it comes to people entering our country illegally.”
Joe Arpaio is running for re-election as Sheriff of Maricopa County……the county where Phoenix is. He is asking for a contribution under $410 (the maximum) he mentions and that I should the send the contribution payable to “Re-elect Joe Arpaio 2012”.
I think that I shall do just that. He may be a man of the past……but so am I. How about you? Do you still believe in Constitutional democracy? I do.
Should American borders become a free-for-all anarchic mob scenes ruled by Marxists and criminals? Or is there something civilized still left in the bones of this once confident. proud and law based democracy?
Maybe you can do something to help America remain INDEPENDENT too.
