COUNTDOWN: There are still 1,238 extremely long days to go in the current very corrupt and racist administration’s term in office…
Happy Labor Day, everybody! We hope you’ll take a brief moment to remember and appreciate the struggles of some of our forebearers, who made possible the standards of the workplace we now enjoy today.
In the past week, we saw President Donald Chump praise and then pardon an old, forcibly retired Arizona ex-sheriff named Joe Arpaio. The defiant old sheriff was awaiting sentencing for his refgusal to follow a judge’s command to stop harassing Hispanics in his home state. Chump told another of his constant lies by claiming Arpaio was narrowly defeated in a recent election, when the old bigot was actually and deservedly defeated in a landslide. I remember this old sheriff from clips I used to see of him in appearances on the Lou Dobbs show on CNN a decade or so ago. This Arpaio character had a penchant for rounding up as many Hispanic supposed-illegal immigrants as he could, dressing them in pink undergarments, and then putting them into uncomfortable barracks he referred to as his “concentration camp” until they could be deported. In his rabid anti-immigrant zeal, Arpaio’s underlings, under his direction, made a huge number of false arrests and often apprehended their prey using violent as well as intimidating methods. This hateful man, who was and is definitely NOT a “good guy”, cost his state more than $150 MILLION in lawsuits, and that is why, after many years in power, he was justifiably booted out of office by voters who had finally seen enough of his bigotry and misuse of power. And Chump actually admires this sap…
In today’s offering, our podcaster magnifique Burr Deming takes issue with that unjust pardon and exposes the 85 year old bigoted ex-sheriff for the blind and cruel racist he has actually been.
Burr says, “President Trump has pardoned Joe Arpaio. Good folks are angry. They have a good case. Why aren’t they making it?”
