If you needed a symbol of the utterly preposterous lawsuit against Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Maricopa County Sheriffs Department (MCSO), this may well be it.
On page 2 of the 32-page complaint, filed yesterday in U.S. District Court in Phoenix, the Department of Justice references “insensitive” emails sent by MCSO employees. The prima fascie evidence? Read for yourself…
MCSO supervisors involved in immigration enforcement have expressed anti-Latino bias, in one instance widely distributing an email that included a photograph of a Chihuahua dog dressed in swimming gear with the caption “A Rare Photo of a Mexican Navy Seal.”
In case you missed this shocking, vicious, racist, “anti-Latino” photograph when it made the rounds on the interwebs years ago, here it is…
Huh? Seriously? THIS is supposed to prove racist “bias” against all “Latinos”?
What’s next, a criminal indictment of the CEO of Taco Bell?
What kind of warped mind would see the harmless joke photo above as shockingly racist, but insist that two New Black Panther thugs with billy clubs, standing outside a Philly polling place on Election Day 2010, and shouting “What are you doing here, Cracker?” to a white poll-watcher, was not voter intimidation – and drop the case? Why Eric Holder’s DOJ Civil Rights Division, of course!
PJMedia has a breakdown of the ultra-left wing activist DOJ lawyers who filed the suit. When you read their resumes, it all makes sense. These are 3 young lawyers who cut their teeth with some of the most radical non-profit groups in existence – and are steeped in the dirtiest racial politics America has ever seen.
This persecution of Sheriff Joe and his deputies is criminal. It must not stand. We stand with Joe.
