Russell Pearce and JT Ready, Together Again on Fox 10

Russell Pearce: Pioneer Against Illegal Immigration or Racist?: MyFoxPHOENIX.com

Kudos to Fox 10 anchor John Hook and executive producer Rod Haberer for the best exposé I've seen another outlet do on the subject of state Senate President Russell Pearce and his relationship with Arizona neo-Nazi J.T. Ready. The piece ran during last night's broadcast.

The Mesa Republican, as usual, denies all. But his denials are wearing thin these days, what with his involvement in the Fiesta Bowl scandal and the recall effort hard on his heels. 

Interestingly, an anti-recall rally in support of Pearce last night in north Phoenix was a bust, drawing only about 100 people. I'll have more on that rally in a subsequent blog post.

I appreciate the credit given to New Times by Fox. That's not often done by broadcast news, which usually takes pains to "own" every story.

But Fox breaks some new ground. It questions the tattoo on Pearce's criminal son Joshua's chest, which could be a Nazi war eagle. (The subject of much speculation by commenters to this blog.) 

Pearce admits that his son's tattoo was inappropriate and that his son had it covered up, though you can plainly see the eagle's head poking out in Joshua's mug shot.

Also, Fox gets into the threats received by former state House Representative Bill Konopnicki after defying Pearce. Pearce sicked his wingnut supporters on Konopnicki (a Republican, BTW), who received a death threat at his home. A classic tale of Pearce's intimidation of his fellow legislators.

Other than being warned about Ready in 2006 by Bill Straus of the ADL, there was also a seminar at the legislature given in early 2007, moderated by Straus and sponsored by then House Representative and now state Senator Kyrsten Sinema. The event spotlighted Ready's extremist affiliations.

I once asked Sinema if Pearce could have not known about the seminar. She wasn't buying.

"I find that very hard to believe," Sinema told me. "The entire Legislature was invited to the event. The whole thing was videotaped, and you can watch it on our archive. And I reported it on the floor [of the state House]."

So Pearce knew about Ready and didn't care. Ready calls Pearce a liar during the broadcast. Can't say that I demur, considering Pearce's sordid record.

Years of outstanding investigative reporting by Stephen Lemons and Dennis Gilman videographer, whose warnings were ignored by the mainstream media. Anyone else would have been picked up and thrown in jail.

It seems the supremes have thrown a monkey wrench into the wet dreams of the open -borders crowd. Of course the usual leftist anti-American judges voted against the citizenry.

Game over Mr Pearce. I left the state of Arizona and the church because your actions, you could have potentially destroy my life; I'm an Arizonan that get sick and tired of people like you running our state.Are you going to accuse Fox News of being "An open border organization"??Trust me, you deserve every single problem that you are facing or going to face in the future.

He deserves every problem that he might face, especially if he backs down on the open borders crowd. Why would he destroy your life? Are you in the U.S. illegally? If so, you need to be booted out--yesterday. Capish?

It's as sad a reflection on the state of corporate-owned electronic media as it is on the sorry state of our state government that Fox finally regurgitates a very old Newtimes story and runs it as news...pitiful. But at least it's out there in front of people who wouldn't ordinarily read the Newtimes.

RuSSell Pearce - Cunning and twisted, superficially articulate and as willfully ignorant as a man can be. He dresses in flag motif while he squats and shits on the constitution. He beats his wives and he cozies up to Nazis. He lies without effort and points the finger of blame at anyone but himself. And he hates but cannot love anyone but himself.

This is not a complete human being. RuSSell has all the signs of having an antisocial personality disorder. People such as he wreak great havoc while they con and fool the innocent and gullible. They can lie convincingly and cause great injury to others without feeling the slightest twinge of guilt.

The certainty that he displayed during the TV interview is the result of a complete lack of conscience.

Read The Mask of Sanity and The Sociopath Next Door and you will find all of RuSSell Pearce's pathological personality attributes explained in detail. And you will understand why this man needs to be excised from the body politic.

 Banality of evilFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaRequest from the U.S. Public Health Service for autopsies on victims of theirmedical experiments.Banality of evil is a phrase coined by Hannah Arendt and incorporated in the title of her 1963 work Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil.[1] It describes the thesis that the great evils in history generally, and the Holocaust in particular, were not executed by fanatics or sociopaths, but rather by ordinary people who accepted the premises of their state and therefore participated with the view that their actions were normal.Explaining this phenomenon, Edward S. Herman has emphasized the importance of "normalizing the unthinkable." According to him, "doing terrible things in an organized and systematic way rests on 'normalization.' This is the process whereby ugly, degrading, murderous, and unspeakable acts become routine and are accepted as 'the way things are done.'"[2]Spencer Rosenstein collected various uses of the phrase over the last ten years, arguing that the phrase has been overused to the point making it, essentially, a "worsened word."[3][edit]See alsoMilgram experimentStanford prison experiment[edit]References^ Bird, David (December 6, 1975). "Hannah Arendt, Political Scientist, Dead". The New York Times.
