Proud to be a Filthy Liberal Scum

Loud, Proud and I don't care about hurting a conservative's feelings!

Joe Arpaio Is The Perfect Conservative Politician

He abuses his power to punish political opponents, he wastes tax payer money to pursue personal goals, he hates women, he hates immigrants, he’s crooked, he’s a bully and he breaks the law he’s sworn to uphold on a regular basis.

Good thing the DOJ is finally doing something about it. TPM reports of some of the most disturbing charges against “America’s Sheriff:”

Forcing Women To Sleep In Their Own Menstrual Blood: In Arpaio’s jails, “female Latina LEP prisoners have been denied basic sanitary items. In some instances, female Latina LEP prisoners have been forced to remain with sheets or pants soiled from menstruation because of MCSO’s failure to ensure that detention officers provide language assistance in such circumstances.”

Assaulting Pregnant Women: “[A]n MCSO officer stopped a Latina woman – a citizen of the United States and five months pregnant at the time – as she pulled into her driveway. After she exited her car, the officer then insisted that she sit on the hood of the car. When she refused, the officer grabbed her arms, pulled them behind her back, and slammed her, stomach first, into the vehicle three times. He then dragged her to the patrol car and shoved her into the backseat. He left her in the patrol car for approximately 30 minutes without air conditioning. The MCSO officer ultimately issued a citation for failure to provide identification.”

Criminalizing Living Next To The Wrong People: “[D]uring a raid of a house suspected of containing human smugglers and their victims . . . officers went to an adjacent house, which was occupied by a Latino family. The officers entered the adjacent house and searched it, without a warrant and without the residents’ knowing consent. Although they found no evidence of criminal activity, after the search was over, the officers zip-tied the residents, a Latino man, a legal permanent resident of the United States, and his 12-year-old Latino son, a citizen of the United States, and required them to sit on the sidewalk for more than one hour, along with approximately 10 persons who had been seized from the target house, before being released.”

As the right leaps to his defense by claiming Obama has a vendetta against Arpaio and is just trying to shut him up, it will be important to ask them over and over and over at which point did it become OK to assault and abuse legal citizens for “looking” like illegal immigrants? I thought the right was against big government randomly seizing Americans? Or does that only apply to WHITE citizens?

Of course! What was I thinking? Look who we’re talking about. Maybe we should just call Arpaio what he really is: the ideal conservative.

  1. This is really kind of funny because I’ve been, er, “debating” a right wing troll on one of AddictingInfo’s fb pages (http://www.facebook.com/Republicansareidiots1/posts/412070662148138), all she does it shout out the usual stupid right wing rhetoric but the one that comes up most often is “liberals hate women and children.” I’d be tempted to share the above story with her, but I don’t want to inflict a troll on your blog, and per the fb page’s title, republicans are idiots and arguing with them is a complete waste of time!

  2. Arpaio reminds me of the Captain in the movie “Cool Hand Luke.”
