Sheriff Joe Can’t Let The Crazy Go

Sheriff Joe Can’t Let The Crazy Go

Let it go, Sheriff Joe, let it go.

Taking his birther conspiracy to new heights, Maricopa County Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio now believes that the Republican presidential candidates are part of the great birth certificate cover-up.

Sheriff Joe let this news out in an interview with fellow birther Aaron Klein. In it Arpaio explains how the Obama administration is strong-arming government law enforcement agencies and the media on the issue of his birth certificate. Arpaio seems especially perplexed by the idea that Republican lawmakers and presidential candidates have started to distance themselves from the controversial sheriff.

Hmmm…. wonder why that could be.

Perhaps it is because Arpaio is thisclose to losing his badge thanks to evidence uncovered in a Department of Justice investigation that his department systematically profiles suspects on the basis of race. Or maybe its because that same investigation uncovered proof that his office mishandled or ignored hundreds of sex crimes cases, many involving immigrants.

Or maybe it’s because most Republican lawmakers understand that openly embracing racism may be a good way to appeal to the most radical fringe of conservative voters, but independent voters by and large find birther conspiracies repulsive.

The crazies are more vocal than ever. It used to be that people didn't verbalize their strange paranoia and delusions. Now, they find enough support and a party that doesn't speak out against the extremists; they now feel they have a platform and a sympathetic minority who actually believe all the unreasonable and often ridiculous plots they hear about. Some people will find something to fear in every event that happens.

The bc has been proven to be a fraud. The numbers don't match for that year and sequence. He is not a legal citizen and he is in power in our country. This is against all laws of this nation. Why no one takes him down is beyond belief. He needs to step down and all states need to take him off of their president ticket. Wise up NObama sheeple. You've been drinking the NObama Kool-Aid for too long.

Louise said "he might find Jesus soon" I can assure you that anyone named Jesus would be locked up in a NY second under the pink poodle. Everyone knows all Jesus' are illegal Hispanic immigrants.
