Sheriff Joe Arpaio Accepted Award From Confederate Group With "History of White Supremacy," Salon Says

Arpaio received an award from a controversial neo-confederate group back in October of 2011, Salon magazine reports.

Besides the announcement of plans to deploy armed posse members at schools, another Sheriff Joe Arpaio story that broke yesterday concerns his acceptance last year of an award by a confederate group.

Salon, an online magazine with a national presence, published an article yesterday about the mini award ceremony in Arpaio's office back in October of 2011. The magazine got the tip from a researcher who says the group, the Sons of Confederate Veterans, "has an interesting history of white supremacy which continues to this this day."

The Salon story even includes the accompanying picture from the SCV newsletter of Arpaio accepting the award.

Salon says:


Edward H. Sebesta, who researches the neo-Confederate movement and has edited several books on the subject, passed along the newsletters to Salon. "The SCV has an interesting history of white supremacy which continues to this day," he said, noting that magazines published by the group have advocated against immigration and Muslims, and argued that blacks have lower IQs. Sebesta is now working to establish an Anti-Neo-Confederate Institute.


The Arizona chapter of the SCV proclaims that it stands in opposition to any groups that "promote hate and discrimination," going so far as to include a small illustration of a white-hooded figure within a ban sign.

Arpaio has gotten in trouble in the past for appearing to endorse racist groups in the past, posing for a picture with an anti-immigrant protester who turned out to be neo-Nazis and claiming it was an "honor" to be compared to the KKK. Arpaio's also considered to be one of the worst discriminators of Hispanics in law enforcement, and is now the subject of two racial-profiling lawsuits, including one filed by the U.S. Department of Justice.

Lisa Allen, the sheriff's longtime spokeswoman, told the Arizona Republic that Arpaio receives awards from a variety of organizations throughout the year and that his acceptance of an award does not constitute an endorsement of any group. She added that this was another attempt by Salon to "smear" the sheriff.

He does a pretty good job of doing that himself.

I have just one thing to say....and these are quotes from a smarter man than the writer of this article.

"Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.." -- Winston Churchill
These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read: Unfortunately, most voters dont know this.
Read quote from Winston Churchhill also.

1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.

2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them; and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work, because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Although Arpaio is a corrupt politician who got rich off of stealing/ protecting  drug dealers during his DEA days, Salon magazine is still ran by communists and is agenda driven.

Think about this people - if this had happened a few years ago part of that posse would have been J.T. Ready - "protecting" the children of this city?  Does that scare the s*** out of anyone besides me?

I wouldn't doubt if this CORRUPT POS is attending KKK meetings, along with Brewsky, Pearce, Studboi and Jaffy carryng the bag of pink dependes, for when somebody needs a diaper change. Fucking Old Fart is living his 1960's fantasy; he has his concentration camp, chain gang, and his slaves, just instead of coloured people, he has the hispanic community to make up for, mother fucking puto.

Fortunately there is word that the DOJ is comming to crush the cockroach, before those shreders begin working, be afraid, old fart be very afraid.

I'm shocked to see this article wasn't written by Stephen Lemons. Did he croak?

Actually, Lisa, yes it does.  One does not usually accept awards, or even phone calls for that matter, from those who espouse values that are fundamentally repulsive to you and your core values.  Just because an award is offered doesn't mean that it must be accepted.  So when the Sheriff does accept an award, if it isn't an endorsement of the group presenting the award it is, at the very least, a clear indication of the Sheriff's approval of the group, it's aims, mission and purpose.

Be fair now. Joe used to smear himself but now that JAF is his personal wiper, this problem has been solved.

Ray Stern is right. No need to "smear" the 80 year old Flaccid Fool. When he does it all by him senile self. With his stupidity of posing next to racist white supremacists. With his acceptance of hate, by the white supremacist SCV. It will surely get JAFucker pooping in his tight amigo pants, because he's an illegal toy boy owned by the FF.


By the way, the neo-Nazi in the photo next to the ghastly geezer in the back of the car, who went by an Italian alias at that time, I believed he renounced his racist views and ditched the racist NSM later that year. I think he claimed to have discovered he has Native American ancestry in his lineage or something. If memory serves me correctly. I'm pretty sure he now hates the octogenarian lover of JAF.

@JoeArpaioFan And you're missing the Feathered Bastard already? You got a thing for him or something? Last time I checked, the FB is happily married to a wife. Sorry illegal amigo. But I think "Studboi" (of adam4adam.com) of PCSO might be available. Give him a holler.
