Joe Arpaio Does Interview With Holocaust Denial Site

Media Matters reports:

Joe Arpaio, the racist Arizona sheriff who was recently pardoned by President Donald Trump, gave another interview to an anti-Semitic publication that has repeatedly pushed claims that the Holocaust is a “hoax.”

American Free Press published a September 15 piece by roving editor Mark Anderson stating that it “recently” interviewed Arpaio to combat “the false narrative that Arpaio had engaged in ‘racial profiling’ when his deputies apprehended illegal alien suspects.” The piece shared details from their conversation, including regarding Arpaio’s false campaign claiming former President Barack Obama’s birth certificate is fake.

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has described American Free Press as “an anti-Semitic conspiracy-oriented news­pa­per” that attracts “the most vit­ri­olic anti-Semites.” The New York Times wrote that the late Willis Carto, who helped found the publication, “used lobbying and publishing to denigrate Jews and other minorities and galvanize the movement to deny the Holocaust.”

The site is currently selling a book titled The Holocaust Never Happened & The CIA Killed JFK. Below are some of their recent headlines.

  • Tawreos

    Of course he does. Trump really picked a winner to pardon.

    • Todd20036

      Trump picked a compatriot.

    • jerry

      They’re never “just” racists, are they? You have to throw in antisemitism, misogyny, homophobia…and with Arpaio and the number dead is his prison camp, it was a minor case of genocide, too.

      • Steverino

        And of course they never take “personal responsibility” for their antisemitism, so they engage in Holocaust denial.

        • jerry

          And I missed the category of “all-around general assholism”.

      • james1200

        Look at what the Nazis did in Europe: when they were done exterminating the Jews and Gypsies, they moved on to other ethnicities. You can never be pure enough.

      • Librarykid

        No matter what hate’s initial targets might be, it ends up with the Jews. Incoming is from all sides.

  • Hank

    I can only hope, that the Grim Reaper, strikes Arpaio SOON!!!

  • Lumpy Gaga

    [bannable] [bannable] [bannable] the [bannable].

    • Todd20036

      Probably did something similar last weekend.
      I’m not proud of it.
      Oh wait, yes I am.
      But I’m a perv, not a bigot or a Nazi.

      • Treant

        You two are not on the same page, I think. I like your page better. But I also agree with Lumpy Gaga. 🙂

  • Bryan

    “Arpaio concluded, ‘Now, if President Trump asked me to run [for whatever office], that’d be a ‘wild card’ to consider.'”

    • Todd20036

      SCOTUS justice?

      • Tawreos

        The thought of that made me throw up a bit, thank you for that

        • Beagle

          Isn’t Arpaio 85 years old? If there’s a silver lining, he likely wouldn’t serve very long.

          • Tawreos

            One day is too long.

  • PickyPecker
  • JoeMyGod

    American Free Press: Hey, Sheriff Joe, we’d like to interview you.
    Arpaio: What’s your site about?
    American Free Press: Loving Trump and hating Jews.
    Arpaio: So…Will this be Skype or in person?

    • Bob Conti

      Arpaio: I’ll be right there.

    • Uncle Mark

      DAMN…Ever notice how these bigots just can’t focus on one group of people to hate? If only they they could focus and specialize on one group, instead of diluting their hate against so many. /s

  • Lazycrockett
  • How does cheetolini converge his obvious hatred of Jews with his daughter’s Jewish husband and her converting to Judism?

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      1. “Religion” aside, the drumpfs and the kushners are birds of a feather. (Vultures, specifically). Both families inhabit the shadowy borderlands between real estate development and organized crime.

      2. Their Judaism is perfect window-dressing for drumpf. He can point to them and say, “Look! Look at my Jewish-Americans”.

      • Oh! I light bulb brightens in my brain. There are times I’m just to stupidly naive and honest to see the truly dark side of the human heart. Well, not sure cheetolini has a heart….nor jared.

    • greenmanTN

      Certainly for Trump and probably for both of them, their alleged religiosity is just window dressing. The only Gods they truly worship are mammon and entitlement.

    • clay

      How often have you heard him refer to her by her married (and converted) name? Have any of us EVER heard him utter “Yael Kushner”?

  • james1200

    Trump knew EXACTLY who he was pardoning. Does anyone have any doubt now that we have our first white supremacist president since Woodrow Wilson? And at least Wilson was a progressive on a lot of issues (unless you were black.) And there are Jews in this administration, from Jared and Michael Cohen on down, who will remain silent because they know money trumps ethnicity/religion, so they’ll be fine no matter what hell is unleashed on the rest of us.

    • After the whole “Nuke North Korea unto Glass” speech and now this, there is no hope for a tomorrow that is peaceable and filled with equality for all. I’m not sure a Xanax and a glass of champagne is enough to blot out the horror of today.

    • Tawreos

      Change glass to case and think we may have a good start

  • Treant

    I. I. I.

    Next thread, please.

  • bkmn

    I hear the hate circuit pays well

  • pj

    now that he isnt sheriff he can speak freely.

    • Tawreos

      Being Sheriff never stopped him before.

  • anne marie in philly

    muthafucka should be IN JAIL! being attacked by the people he ridiculed! ONLY THEN will justice be served!

  • joeyj1220

    Please Joe, for the love of God… no more news today. My nerves can’t handle it. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/644a61e5889a0b095bc4db801458d4e8d851e904d034a8b8ae5626460e5f2e3f.gif

          • kelven

            My stepfather emphatically believed this and would often accuse me of smoking pot years before I started. He definitely knew I was gay years before I did and I guess he needed some reason in his mind that would make sense.

          • Mike_in_the_Tundra

            It did its job.

          • jerry

            That, and I hear it can possibly cause man boobs.

          • Tawreos

            That comes from giving in to the munchies to often

          • Tawreos

            It must be retroactive then because I didn’t have any until years later

          • JWC

            abstention will leave you as a fucked up christian

          • Tatonka

            That explains a lot.

          • Bryan

            Is THAT how we’ve been doing it….

            If you’ll excuse me I have a few cute straight boys to convert.

      • Gustav2

        I just had a brownie sundae.

      • doninkansas

        You only serve gin in bathtubs.

        • JWC

          as any society babe would know

        • Very true and absolutely correct. However, I don’t like Gin but adore Jack, so I had fun with the saying.

    • another_steve

      Joey, be thankful for small mercies.

      No posts today, yet, on Milo Yiannopoulos.

      • Tawreos

        Do not speak the name for speaking the name may draw the demon near.

          • Tawreos

            Nah, say his name that dude knows how to party.

  • greenmanTN

    Peripherally related, Michael Shermer has an excellent book called Denying History, about Holocaust deniers, at least one of which is Jewish. But it’s not just about that, it’s about how ANY history is known. For example, no one who fought in the Civil War or in Ancient Rome are still alive, so how DO we know that is true and what isn’t. So it’s about the methodology of history and how it is compiled and becomes accepted.

    https://www.amazon.com/Denying-History-Holocaust-Never-Happened/dp/0520260988

    • JWC

      Usually history is written by the victors , the truth subject to whatever embellishments are required If there was an injustice it in many years,, if not centuries later, that this will surface and compromising history (the victores version) will be disputed

      • greenmanTN

        It’s true that history is written by the winners, so accounts Immediately after an event can be skewed, but there are primary documents to rely on later for a more balanced telling.

        • JWC

          In this day and age with a multitude of news sources , epecially if you don’t live in the US , you can get imeediate challanges and perspectives Most interesting last night on Rachel with her interview with the gut who had just come back from NK

    • jerry

      About 15-20 years ago, all the creationists would ask scientists, “How do you know, were you there?” This was so inane and quickly ended because, of course, the same could be asked of the creationists or any of their biblical stories. But not thinking ahead and lack of reasoning is a feature of the religious cults.

      • JWC

        When you consider the biblical times, when all this shit was going down,supposedly. Communication was mosttly word of mouth , if anything was written it was” stik figgers”. Travel took monrths between tribes and camps with different dialects.As stories, tales and fables were passed on and on , with time and different dialects, a year later , how close to the original was the current tale I mean think of it the close proximity between the words ” Celebate” and “Celebrate” and how there respective meaning have altered the world

        • jerry

          The old testament wasn’t even written down until after the Hebrews got out of captivity in Babylon–around 530 BC–at least 1500 years after some of the stories and events depicted. The new testament, while not having that big of a span of years pass before being written, was still written by people who weren’t there to actually witness the supposed events, and was then later edited and redacted to fit the narrative put forth by the Roman empire and Catholic Church.

          • JWC

            The Dark ages . Then the Church gathered what they needed ,torched the great library of Constantinople, thereby denying all others and viola whipped up the Greatest Fable ever told called the Holly Bibble

          • jerry

            Alexandria…391 AD they destroyed the library at Alexandria.

          • JWC

            Although the Library of Alexandria was destroyed in 391 AD A good part of content were consolidated in the library of Constantinope. It too sucumbed to a looting and fire but much later at 1204 At its time it was the greastest single source of manuscripts of both Greek and Roman histories In the centuries between 391 and 1204 many transcripts were translalated and transcribed here

          • jerry

            Oh, sorry. I always just read about the one in Alexandria, destroyed by order of the pope, and lead into the dark ages.

          • JWC

            Oh definetly the European Empire went into a Dark funk after that and the Church was the only ones allowed to be enlightened It was all throught that time that the Library in Constantinople at the fringes of Romes control, was able to florish I will never be proven, the fire in 1204 was blammed on maurauding hoards it was also thought that the Church looted and torched it

          • JWC

            Jerry never be sorry its fun digging up shit and exploring ideas Good dialogue

    • Steverino

      Funny how the people who think a historical event such as the Holocaust didn’t happen, are the exact same people who are feverishly eager to believe in non-historical events, conspiracy theories, and falsehoods (“Pizzagate,” for example).

      • Benghazi! Birth certificate-gate. And now Russia-gate.

        • JWC

          you forgot wire tapping

          • I just can’t keep up with this “drain the swamp” administration.

          • JWC

            I know I know It’s a bitch

    • jerry

      And future deniability was the reason that our generals, including Ike, brought in directors John Ford, George Stevens, as well as future director Sam Fuller to film and document the holocaust.

    • Hank

      At least we have the Documentary “Shoah” with interviews of jewish survivors of the Holocaust!
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shoah_(film)

      • greenmanTN

        I was in a relationship with a Jewish man for over 13 years so I’ve seen every minute of Shoah, the whole magilla. There are some Jews who feel the Holocaust has been exploited by some documentarians to make money, not to truly honor the events OR the victims. As former Israeli foreign minister Abba Eban said about SOME Holocaust themed event, “There’s no business like Shoah business.”

      I liked the facial expression on Net-in-Yahoo and those sitting with him when Trump announced his willingness to nuke North Korea. Priceless.

    • We just may have seen the beginning of the end of Mr. Kelly. This is him realizing that he will never be able to reign in cheetolini and make a “president” out of him.

    • james1200

      I don’t know if I’m allowed to say this but I do appreciate that man. He’s obviously there only because he loves his country and he’s terribly afraid of what kind of chaos would ensue if Trump is left unchecked. He might turn out to be one of the few heroes in all this when all is said and done.

      These assholes have the opposite effect on me. I may have died already, but the anger & fury these cretins create in me animates & powers me, until I can dance on their graves

  • i kind of like Joe A. he’s the sort of racist you really want on TV and the internets. he makes all so-called conservatives look bad, to the upcoming generations. what a great crowd of ultra-losers he hangs with; nazis, klansmen, felons and con artists.

    most people under 40 don’t worship the old south, the fantasies about it, or racism in general. i remember how surprised i was, being such a cynic, when the marriage equality barriers fell. similarly, i think the racism that favors xtian white men is dying quickly too, and maybe i was too cynical about that going away in my lifetime.

    please, you ugly, unlovable, utterly unhip old man: keep talking. you just dig your early grave that much faster. your fear is palatable, and the degree to which you are mocked only grows, in internet maths, daily.

    I always wondered, when you’d hear about the political insanity happening in third world, how people could just accept the insane corruption and whacko behavior of their despotic ruler. Well, now we see how. You just need a third of the population to be gullible asshole morons, and another third of the population to be centrists and cowards and morons willing to suck up to power and ignore injustice and then the remaining third, the people with functioning brains and hearts, are outnumbered.
