Joe Arpaio's Top Ten Reasons for Wanting to Be a Neo-Confederate

Heh, wait till Ava sees me in this getup...

Sheriff Joe Arpaio thinks it's an honor to be called KKK, remember?

So why is anyone surprised that in 2011 he accepted the Sons of Confederate Veterans' J. Edgar Hoover Law and Order Award, apparently for all that hard work he did in ignoring hundreds of sex crimes cases around the county.

According to Salon.com, Arpaio's not the only Arizonan to score this prestigious plaudit from all these dudes who think the Civil War had nothing to do with slavery.

None other than Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu has been awarded one as well, it seems. Perhaps it was studboi1's 7" cut that turned them on. Or the fact that he was wearing gray undies in that bathroom flick he took of himself.


And who started the first KKK? Confederate veterans, of course.

Yep, it can get mighty lonely up on the front lines, waiting for them Yankees to attack. Cold, too. So what's the matter with a little spoonin' between soldiers to stay warm?

Salon.com quotes one researcher as saying the SCV has "an interesting history of white supremacy," and the article links to cautionary pieces about the group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Last year, the group actually sponsored an "official centennial event" sanctioned by the Arizona Centennial Commission.

According to the commission's web site, there were a total of four Confederate re-enactments that were so-approved.

Hopefully, these did not include slave-whippings.

In any case, here are Arpaio's top ten reasons for wanting to don the gray and fight in the War of Northern Aggression.

Oh, and if he plans to attend any re-enactments, the sheriff should consider speech therapy to lose the Italian patois that makes him sound like an extra on Boardwalk Empire.

Southerners don't talk like that, dude. And they sure don't cotton to carpetbaggers who do.

Arpaio is a Racist.

He has been photographed with a Neo-Nazi nearly licking his ear, as Arpaio sat window down in the back seat of a blacked out Chrysler 300 at an Immigration March.

Arpaio lied, and claimed he did not know the Nazi.

Perhaps Arpaio just had his driver pull over to the Nazi so Joe could ask him if he had any Gray Poupon Mustard?

And the number one reason Joe's joinin' the Confederacy...

1) Because it cynically plays to and manipulates the innate prejudices,bigotry and xenophobia of his poltical base.

< And the number one reason Joe's joinin' the Confederacy...

1) Because Abe Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation gives 21st Century Republicans a really bad rep with racists.>

Mr. Lemons, Your top 10 hit it out of the ballpark!

Ah good old New Times - bashing Arpaio on the one hand and poking fun at mug shots of mentally ill MCSO inmates on the other. Nice.

Another Yellow Journalism article written by none other than Stephen Lemons. I sure hope for his own sake that he lives in the 818 area code and not in Phoenix because I'm sure there's a BOLO out for him in Arizona.

@comrade What's corrupt about enforcing the law? In 2013 there will be many more immigration raids which are no different than police saturating black neighboorhoods looking for drugs.

@dangelo.diane Time to scrap the mug shots unless the elected officials who are under investigation, in court or jail are shown as well.

@JoeArpaioFan  

I see they posted a picture of your lover Babeu in his normal attire.I bet it gets you all excited and you can hardly wait to suck his dick again.

Joe Arpaio Fan, Law Enforcement should not base the Enforcement of Law on any skin color.

Wouldn't it be nice if we were all color blind, instead of Bigots?!

@JoeArpaioFan  Do you know why you embrace "corruption"? Because you're from fucking MEXICO, you asswipe. Had you been born in this good ol' USA, you would understood the difference between corruption and accountability. But in Mexico where you're from? "The rule of law" is non-existence.

@truthseekeraz

Thats never going to happen since they can do no wrong in Arizona, even as corrupt as they are..

@truthseekeraz @dangelo.diane I wonder if New Times found Marty Atencio's mug shot amusing or if he was murdered at the jail before they had a chance to publish it in their weekly MCSO mug shot yuck fest.

@truthseekeraz @JoeArpaioFan jaf is only sick because he sucks dick after its been in his man lover's asshole.

@MotherJones @dangelo.diane You can twist my words all you'd like, but it doesn't change the fact that PNT is attacking Arpaio on the one hand and buying into his abuse of inmates on the other.

MotherJones
MotherJones

@dangelo.diane And by reading this publication and posting comments to its articles, you are enabling the enabler. Which means you're enabling Joe. Hope you're proud of yourself. It's because of enabler-enablers like you that Joe gets re-elected, over and over again.

@MotherJones @dangelo.diane @truthseekeraz Yes, Stephen does fine reporting. There's no reason for it to be undermined in the same paper by enabling Arpaio's PR machine and denigrating both the mentally ill and people who haven't been convicted of a single thing.

MotherJones

@dangelo.diane @truthseekeraz Lemons did some of the best reporting on the Atencio death. You wanna damn everything PNT does because of one thing you don't like? Talk about poisoning the well. 

MotherJones
MotherJones

@dangelo.diane @MotherJones So now PNT is responsible for Arpaio's re-election. Sure, that makes a lot of sense. That must be why Arpaio arrested PNT's owners. It's his way of saying thanks.

@MotherJones @dangelo.diane Yes, do bring on the personal attacks. Not surprising. Publishing the photos is a symptom of the illness in our culture that allows people like Arpaio to get re-elected over and over and over. NT is enabling this culture of cruelty.

MotherJones
MotherJones

@dangelo.diane @MotherJones So Lemons is guilty because someone else does a blog post in another blog that you dislike? 

The mugshots? If you don't like them, don't look at them. I never do. You must get off on it.

@dangelo.diane @MotherJones  

At least the New Times isn't killing them like the MCSO Goons do.
