Joe Arpaio Interviewed by Holocaust-Denier for Anti-Semitic Publication
First nativists and birthers, now Holocaust-deniers and anti-Semites?
Yes, even for Sheriff Joe Arpaio, this jumps the proverbial shark.
I'm talking about a recent interview Arpaio granted to Pennsylvania-based Holocaust-denier Victor Thorn, author of The Holocaust Hoax Exposed: Debunking the 20th Century's Greatest Fabrication and Made in Israel: 9-11 and the Jewish Plot Against America, among numerous other tomes with similarly repulsive themes.

Thorn's interview with Arpaio was published Sunday by the American Free Press, which the Anti-Defamation League has described as a "Washington, DC-based conspiracy-oriented anti-Semitic newspaper published by long-time anti-Semite Willis Carto."
The interview itself is pretty standard stuff: Arpaio denouncing "amnesty," the Obama administration, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
americanfreepress.net AFP does seem a tad obsessed with Jewish people...
Titled, "Legendary Sheriff Joe Arpaio Speaks to AFP," the article is full of pat quotes from Arpaio, like the following:
"I have a gun and badge. I don't talk. I take action...I'm against amnesty, and no one should receive a get-out-of-jail-free card. I believe in following the law."
I contacted Thorn who told me that he did the interview via phone with Arpaio, but he would not tell me who on Arpaio's end helped set it up.
americanfreepress.net AFP, anti-Semitic? Gee, where'd you get that idea from?
"I know who I went through, and I know the notes that I took," Thorn said when I asked.
When I mentioned that the interview might be controversial, not because of its content, but because it's published in AFP, Thorn asked why.
