Arizona Sheriff Scoffs at Suggestion to Tone Down Rhetoric
FOXnews ^

Posted on 02/17/2011 4:56:18 AM PST by fabrizio

An outspoken Arizona sheriff has responded to a letter from the mayors of three border cities who asked him to tone down his comments on border security problems, saying, "feel free to 'drink the Kool-Aid'" of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke and President Obama.

...

"The threat from an unsecured border is real, where 241,000 illegals were apprehended last year by the border patrol and an additional 400,000 got away just in Arizona alone!" the letter reads. "These are failing grades by anyone's score card."

....

If your intent was to establish dialogue with me, you would have called, or at least waited for your letter to arrive by mail at my office, prior to releasing it to the media,"

...

In an interview with FoxNews.com, Babeu said he has recently increased enforcement near the border with "constant patrols" by SWAT team officers armed with AR-15s and night vision goggles. "I'm sending out deputies to meet these armed cartel members," Babeu said Wednesday. "And we will not use less than lethal force." ...

"They want us to sit and shut up," he said. "Well, that's not going to happen. This isn't a time to sit on our hands and ignore the issue. It's a time for action."

Sheriff Joe won’t be around forever. Replacements need to be groomed/identified and supported now.

“Tone down” the rhetoric to what end? So we don`t offend the occupiers from Mexico? I hate eunuchs.

If safeguarding what`s left of America is too frightening for them, they should be fired.

Remember Goliad...... that is, remember the enemy is the enemy and is treacherous.

Victory results from dead enemies.

"He should appreciate our city’s law enforcement in preserving a peaceful environment at our bi-national border cities."

"bi-national border cities?"Hey Gomez you bonehead! They're not bi-national cities. They're AMERICAN cities. Get it straight or get out of office!

“SWAT team officers armed with AR-15s and night vision goggles.”

WTG sheriff. You might consider they may be underarmed a tad though given some of the weapons seized. Consider a few 50 cals.

Gomez is being a good liberal when referring to the fact that these cities lie on the border, part in the US and part in Mexico.

But you are absolutely right. The part in the US is a UNITED STATES city and to hell with the Mexican part. Let the Mexicans descend into pure hell if they want to but protect your US city.

Joe’s been talkin g about a possible run for Kyle’s seat. I love the guy..but he’d be dominized. I think Paul Babeu would be a much better candidate..has he said anything about it..?

“Remember the Alamo, Sheriff Babeu. Boy, I love Texas!”

Sure, but don’t try to move Pinal County there. It’s staying in Arizona.

Babeu is the bomb. If FedGov won’t protect us from invasion, this good sheriff will. God bless him.

We know what “tone down the rhetoric” means
when coming from the left -

“stop telling the truth!”

The sad fact is that most men are sheep. Proven to me when we had a pastor whose idea of Sunday morning was “weird tie day and weird hat day” and Sunday evening was “no talent night”, where he dressed up like Doris Day and sang and danced.

But what made it real was not another man would stand up with me and say that was wrong.

How do we support this guy? He is a target and will be taken down if we don't.
