Joe Arpaio's Shameless Self-Promotion After Boston Marathon Explosions (Video)



Above is the video clip we referenced Monday, the one in which Sheriff Joe Arpaio successfully used the explosions at the Boston Marathon for some attention on Fox News.

"They're even after the sheriff here," Arpaio told Fox's Neil Cavuto.

Cavuto explained all of Arpaio's qualifications for being on national TV at the moment, including 1) being born in Boston, 2) being raised in Boston, and 3) working in Boston -- only one of which is true, as Arpaio says he was born and raised in Springfield, which is 90 miles away.

"I have five threats to hit me with cartels," Arpaio said after being asked about national security. "The latest one was last week, so maybe being high-profile from Washington to Maricopa County with certain groups that don't like the sheriff, and I'll tell you I'm not leaving, I'm going to be the sheriff for many years."

Of course, Arpaio's no stranger to exploiting tragedy.

Just a couple weeks ago, Arpaio tried to butt in to the murder of Mingo County Sheriff Eugene Crum, which wasn't nearly as gross as his lengthy exploitation of the dead children from Newtown, Connecticut, as he brought in actor Steven Seagal to simulate a school shooting.

Actually it was Obama's shameless self-promotion after the marathon explosions. Did you hear him, he was so pathetic.

This Video is Private because it is sickening!

This is nothing but "Fear Mongering", and trying to tie in the Phony Border for "Corporate Greed"!

After september 11th 2001 rather than stay after the "Real Terrorist's" Border States saw the Border as a Corporate Gold Mine!

The Phony Border War has Fleeced, and Economically Crashed our Nation!

Now these Gold seeking Bastards are trying to blame Phony Cartels, and the Border for the Boston Bombings before the smoke has even settled, and this disgusting Video never mentioned the Devastated "Victom's" and their Families!

I beleive this is a Terror response to our killing Usama Binladen then flaunting Beatings, and Water Boarding of Muslem's in the recent Hollywood Movie "Zero Dark Thirty."

I doubt this attack has any single thing to do with the Phony Border War, or Arpaio's Racism/Nazi Following.

We don't need to "Beef up National Security", we need to streamline it , and concentrate on 'Real Terrorist's" not deportation of Mothers of our own  Citizen Babies!

Arpaio is a Racist, and did this interview trying to "Fear Monger with FOX for Dollars"

To: Justice for the "Real Terrorist" not Innocent Hispanic Families!

FOX should air a new reality show called "The M.C.S.O. Sheriff's Drama Queen Diaries."

New FOX slogan: "Just you watch this Trash."

How Pathetic?!

You know it's bad when the local Fox affiliate won't run the video on their 9 and 10 news. They typically edit out anything that might show what an absolutely despicable cretin the shurf is. In this case they had to delete the entire video. 

The elderly shurf owes an apology to those who truly ARE victims. 

He truly is mentally ill.

The Boston Bombings are another Terrible page in U.S. History we are are grief sricken.

Arpaio exploiting this "Tragedy" for Public Attention is Dispicable!

I hope they catch the Terrorists  responsible for Boston Bombings very quickly.

I also hope they catch the Arpaio Deputy, or Supporter that did Arpaio's Bomb "Hoax" in Flagstaff!

Arpaio the Mexican;s have teamed up with the Martians and they are all out to get you.

After all Martians are "Real Aliens"!  oh yeah "Theyre " they are out to get you?!  Who is "They" Joe!

You are nothing but a Cowardly "Media Whore " with no respect for "True Victoms".

To: Quick Justice.

The video does not play.  It says the video is "private.  Can you provide a different link perhaps?  Thanks.

just saying, a real cop would have expressed sympathy and outrage at this incident, not started talking about himself. as a cop you are putting yourself in the line of danger just like the military....its part of the job, not a reason to solicit for sympathy or attention. your job is to protect the public and an act like this should make you angry, not chatty about how someone sent something to you that may or may not have been a real threat.  if you really were in danger from a bomb, you should have more sympathy for people who were less fortunate than you in a bomb situation and be a hell of a lot more compassionate for those victims

He was elected by people who apparently want nothing more than shameless self-promotion from their Sheriff, and he has the integrity to give them what they expect and deserve.

The rest of us are a little sick of it, though.

@DNichols   What does a real terrorist look like?  What motivates a terrorist?  The "FALSE FLAG" meme has been popping up alot with the observation that there was a simultaneous "drill" occurring.   Not familiar with this site but interesting POV to ponder. . . 

When Drills Go Live: How to recognize the signs of False Flag Terrorism (Operations)

http://www.kwa.us/blog/?p=137

I've been wondering if the terrorist had a message for us as to why they did this?  Why is nobody claiming this work?  What was the point?  Or is there a message that is not being put out to the public because either they don't want us to think about it or because they do not wish to cater to terrorists (or possibly encourage more) by publishing their message?  In the absence of a terrorist message it is logical to seek patterns with other similar events or with recent events.

@Tommy_Collins Tommy, you remember the elderly shurf's half-assed apology to the 432 sex crime victims.

I know the Flaccid Failure won't apologize.

@nojailforyou1 I'd been looking EVERYWHERE for someone to post that video - all of the usual Fox News video posting sites, etc.  NOONE who would typically be able to get access after the fact (Fox, Sheriff, etc) apparently wants to, and noone who would want to post it because they don't like the Sheriff was apparently paying attention.

I will note, however, in fairness, that the Sheriff was booked for Cavuto's show BEFORE the breaking news swamped the pre-planned interview on the threat to Arpaio.  'Course, either Fox or Arpaio could have canceled once the bombs went off.  (My guess is that a Fox producer wanted to reschedule Arpaio, but that Arpaio said he would be comfortable weighing in on the Boston news.  That would explain why Cavuto apparently tried to justify the interview by pointing out Arpaio's Massachusetts roots.)

@danzigsdaddy Don't you mean, "if there were any victims"?  After all that is Arpaio's famous line when he discuses victims.  Of course it's different if the victim is him.

@danzigsdaddy You began your comment with the idea of comparing the Shurf to a real cop.  That is like apples and oranges.  You should have compared him to Kanye West or any other attention whore.


Boston was tragic!  Having Joe as our Sheriff is even more tragic

@valleynative Joe Arpaio needs to be reminded of what Super Chicken said:  "You knew the job was dangerous when you took it."

@Ceda Riggs Because the Flaccid Failure of NaziCopa County, himself a Massachusetts native, takes the time to talk about himself when an 8 year old little boy was killed in a terrorist-style attack. He's not a professional. Just a sick old man getting his flaccid mug on my TV. Nothing more and nothing less.

@robert_grahamcracker  so all Joe has to say is "its    uh   kinda sad (shrug of indifference and  make the old "pfft-eh" face) its a   uh violent world"    not once does he offer condolences or sympathy, but immediately pushes that the cartels are after him and sending him bombs (with no proof as to who he is accusing either). he immediately turns a tragedy into "me me me"? and how he is doing what he can to stop terrorist acts like this by arresting dishwashers (and only around 20 every couple months).  why doesnt he send those skilled investigators like Zullo out there to find out who was behind this, and then send Seagal to prevent it from ever happening again

I did find a replacement.  It's a cartoon of the Coyote laying a sidewalk, and stamping "ACME" into it.  The Roadrunner sees it and being wise, we walks around it.  Then a fat chicken steps on the sidewalk and breaks his wing.

@sarum

"Real Terrorist's" don't need to be Racially Profiled, perhaps foriegners or any one purchasing large amounts of GUN POWDER would be one's to watch?!!

To the Counter Terrorist Idiots that didn't have a clue what these Bomb Makers were up to, please now Fire Your Worthless Selve's?!!!!

America is wasting Billions of Dollars on the "Phony Border War", while ignoring ("REAL TERRORIST"S") people buying large amounts of Explosives!

We need to re-evaluate the entire Sixteen or Seventeen Spying Agencies, Streamline them, and maybe watch potential "Terrorists" instead of ripping apart good hard working Families!

@WhoKnows @Flyer9753  

ROFL!!!! Good one and very true!!

I dropped you a note on another comment but not sure if you saw it. Danzig and I were wanting to get your email addy so we can converse outside of NT. 

We would also like to get Tommy on that mail group as well so we can all talk without it needing to be on the blogs.

If that is cool with you, I have a throw away address I use that you can send it to, that way your address does not get spammed all over by the idiots like JAFfy we have here on NT.

It's flyer9753@yahoo.com

If you do send it to me, please let me know so that if it gets caught by yahoo's spam filters (which suck) I can check for it.

@Flyer9753 @WhoKnows I first met TC at an Arpio/Pearce cluster fuck. It was funny!  We're talking about lunch sometime in the next week or so.  If you hear from him, maybe we'll meet then.

@WhoKnows @Flyer9753  

Well the reason I mention Tommy is that I know you two have each others mail addresses, and I am in no way asking you to give me his, but you could let him know we would like to set something like this up between those of us that comment on here and actually have brains (sorry JAFfy and YPS, that excludes you two)

We mainly use them to send info to each other that should not be public, but is relevant to subjects like this, for our own knowledge.

Liz... can't say I do, at least not by that name.
