It’s no secret the open borders crew at the left-wing Arizona Republic have a vendetta against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. They’ve spent years bashing him, advocating for his defeat and hurling invectives his way. The in-tandem assaults are most often done as three prong attacks, using contrived stories masquerading as news reports, backed with hits from the two compliant columnists and a vicious cartoon thrown in, depicting career lawman Arpaio as a bozo with a badge.
This is the newspaper’s modus operandi.
No one listens to the rants from the newsosaur, which serves a diminished demographic of those who prefer day-old news in their driveway to the instantaneous internet. An endorsement from the Republic has increasingly become a political kiss of death. Much to their dismay, popular Sheriff Joe Arpaio continues to get reelected, despite the pre-primary endorsement of Dan Saban — who, as a Democrat, had previously lost to Arpaio and reprised that performance, this time as a newly minted Republican. The facile party switch was worthless. He still lost.
Now we see that the newspaper has turned its editorial page into the comics page. After going ballistic over Donald Trump’s decade-old taped private guy talk conversation, which we now know to have been intentionally leaked, the newspaper treats a violent man with a penchant roughing up his former wife to its endorsement.
Where they are all too happy to pile on Donald Trump for words, the editorial board is more than willing to give Paul Penzone a pass for actions that resulted in orders of protection. In the weakest finale, the newspaper says “Penzone wants to try. Voters should give him the chance.”
The citizens of Maricopa County deserve more than someone “trying” to do the tough work in one of the nation’s largest counties in a state abutting the sieve-like border.
Sheriff Arpaio has been endorsed by the Phoenix Law Enforcement Association, The Arizona Police Association, Arizona Association of Detention Officers, and National Border Patrol Council, representing the nearly 3,000 rank and file men and women of the U.S. Border Patrol in the Tucson Sector. Most importantly, he has repeatedly been endorsed by the voters of Maricopa County
