Joe Arpaio - America’s most racist Sheriff

2 posts / 0 new

We’re getting some new details on the DOJ’s legal complaint against Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

According to the DOJ – Arpaio and his staff engaged in rampant, violent and degrading mistreatment of Latinos . Some of the specific complaints include: assaulting pregnant Latina women, stalking Latina women, forcing incarcerated Latina women to sleep in the own menstrual blood, ignoring rape allegations, and routinely using racial slurs – and that’s just some of the complaints on the DOJ’s laundry list.

It’s tiem for the Republican Party – that’s been so cozy with Arpaio and his tactics for years – to disavow America’s most racist Sheriff.

How Stupid Has the Democratic Party Become?

Republicans haven’t taken over red states; Democrats have lost them by not running as real Democrats.

That’s my big takeaway from Alec MacGillis’ fascinating look into the biggest political mystery of our time: why poor white people in red states are not bothering to turn out to vote, leaving the field to Republicans elected by more affluent whites in those states.
