Skip to comments.Al Sharpton vs. Sheriff Joe: The Hypocrite vs. The Patriot

Under a deal allowing them to enforce federal immigration laws, the deputies have arrested more than 1,500 people who they determined were in Arizona illegally, triggering street protests and condemnation from Latino activists who accuse him of racial profiling." I am first calling for the resignation and or removal of Sheriff Arpaio ... harassment based on color is nothing short of racial profiling, which many of us ... helped to fight to make against the law," Sharpton told reporters.
"Arpaio needs to be confronted, he needs to be removed. ... We also need to suspend the law that he is using. We must stand with our brown brothers and sisters," Sharpton said.
When the United House of Prayer, a large black landlord in Harlem, raises the rent on Freddy's Fashion Mart, Freddy's white Jewish owner is forced to raise the rent on his subtenant, a black-owned music store. A landlord-tenant dispute ensues; Sharpton uses it to incite racial hatred. "We will not stand by," he warns malignantly, "and allow them to move this brother so that some white interloper can expand his business." Sharpton's National Action Network sets up picket lines; customers going into Freddy's are spat on and cursed as "traitors" and "Uncle Toms." Some protesters shout, "Burn down the Jew store!" and simulate striking a match. "We're going to see that this cracker suffers," says Sharpton's colleague Morris Powell. On Dec. 8, one of the protesters bursts into Freddy's, shoots four employees point-blank, and then sets the store on fire. Seven employees die in the inferno.
Paint Arpaio’s face with circus clown colors, then give him a big Hee Haw saaaaaa-lute.
To his credit he’s one of the very few sheriffs who have taken this illegals invasion thing seriously, enough to buck City Hall.
He’s also cost his city beaucoup in legal settlements for things that were, well, a little bit shady.
He and Sharpton... they almost deserve each other. But I’d keep Arpaio sooner than Sharpton.
Sharpton bit off a lot more than he can chew when he made the mistake of acting out his racist bigot shtick with Sheriff Joe.
“When the United House of Prayer, a large black landlord in Harlem”
The “United House of Prayer” is a so-called church that places honor to its founder “Daddy Grace” above that of Jesus Christ. I’ve seen the sanctuary at the church building in Newport News, VA. Very bizarre and somewhat cult-like.
We The People were forced to give Sharpton and his ACORN anti-Americans over $2.5 billion in bail out money so what is he talking about? Fire HIM!!!!
I believe you’re right, Arpaio will eat Sharpton for lunch and won’t back away.
Not enough radical blacks in Joe’s territory for Sharpton to follow through on his bluff.
Also blacks and hispanics tend to despise each other (as they are fighting for their piece of the affirmative action pie).
That sounds like something Sharpton would do the bidding for.
Someone post a Yosemite Sam
Yes, I’ve read articles here on both sides of Arpaio. I don’t personally know but the bad guys sure hate him. :)
Hah! I would if I had one.
I believe that you should rent the Dome in Glendale so people can come and see you try to paint Sheriff Joe as a clown!
Remember the first time you tried it? Remember the last time you tried it? No problem, first and last are the same time.
Sheriff Joe is one of the finest! Just as one of his Lt’s and a couple of Deputies told that POS Mayor -—
We are up to our butts in Ilegals and you want Sheriff Joe as a Clown -—— I bet you voted for President Zero.
Just ran “al sharpton” through the anagram server. Hilarious!
Staph Ran Lo-— his Chinese name
No lap trash-—self explanatory
La harp snot-—you’d have to be a French harmonica player to know!
Racial profiling just makes good sense.
He already is one, minus the paint.
Very few neutrals are applicable to that character.
But he is a clown with guns and rootin and tootin at those Mejicans who just think they can waltz right over the border, no questions asked.
I must concede... Send in the clowns. We need more clowns.
Thanks, those are funny!
I don’t know how to get the picture on here!!! But here’s a link of Yosemite Sam - a fitting tribute to Sheriff Joe.
Sharpton should wish in one hand and crap in the other and see which one fills up.
Thanks for your heads up, cg.
The link wouldn’t work so I looked it up and don’t know if this was the pic you meant to use.
It is. Thanks for posting it.
Most sheriffs are political animals.
Hooray for Sheriff Joe for wanting to get things done rather than listening to his detractors and Al Sharpton.
Amen to that!
Hold, Sherrif Joe! Hold the line good and proper lawman.
On one side you have a man, reelected twenty rears on, upholding the laws as they're written while finding innovative ways to keep costs down - without violating human rights. This man went to Washington to defend his policies when the gutless politicians trying to string him up before public opinion lacked the courage to invite him to the proceedings.
The other man, most notable for the "fake rape" Tawanna Brawley non-case, is a known anti-Semitic race-baiter, opportunist and scalawag of the worst sort who pretends to be a man of God trying to take advantage of Americans Who Happen To Be Black like his predecessor and con-man rival, Jesse Jackson.
Now YOU tell me which man deserves respect and which one needs the old fashioned tar and feathering treatment.
Like I said, I freely cede that it’s hard to talk neutrally about the guy.
Suffice it to say there is lively debate about how well he always achieved the “without violating human rights” part. The city settled cases rather than litigate to the bitter end. Most of this was in association with practices in his tent prisons, not in chasing down illegals, and most of these problems are gone now.
Others like you are incensed at the way terriers yapped at his heels for things which truly meant nothing at all and ended up with clear legal wins for the big ego Cl — oops, the Sheriff.
He’s a love or hate kind of guy. I do not have the resources to dig through all the paperwork myself to see what’s what. I wish you well and no ill with the Cl — oops, the Sheriff.
