Maricopa county’s Sheriff Joe Arpaio prides himself on being “America’s toughest sheriff.” Over the years, Arpaio has been at the center of numerous civil lawsuits, and more recently an investigation by the U.S. Justice Department concerning his unethical practices.
In January, Arpaio endorsed current presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump for president, stating:
Everything I believe in he’s doing and he’s going to do it when he becomes president,” Arpaio told reporters shortly after addressing hundreds of Trump supporters waiting in a high school gymnasium here. “I met Donald six months ago in Phoenix, introduced him then, 30 days back in Phoenix, introduced him then. It is my privilege and honor to help him, to endorse him today for president of the United States.
Arpaio is currently facing contempt of court charges stemming from the failure of the sheriff and three of his top aides to follow a federal judge’s order to curtail racial profiling in his department.
According to the court, one of the sheriff’s contempt charges involved his department’s continued enforcement of a discriminatory immigration policy after U.S. District Judge G. Murray Snow barred the practice.
In short, the Court finds that the Defendants have engaged in multiple acts of misconduct, dishonesty, and bad faith with respect to the Plaintiff class and the protection of its rights,” Snow wrote in the 162-page ruling.

With mounting public outcry over his unconstitutional and lawless behavior, Arpaio decided to use one of his tried and true tricks to distract his constituents. In the past, Arpaio used the “imminent threat” of undocumented immigrants, and Islamic terror to scare his voters, having exhausted those wells, he turned to something a bit more obscure, bizarre, and disturbing.
Arpaio released a public service announcement warning the public of the growing bestiality crisis facing Maricopa County.
In the video, Arpaio tries to convince the public that there is an increasing threat of zoophiles out to violate their animals and possibly their children. It’s a sick and sad display from a man who wants the public to look anywhere else but at his office because if they did they’d smell the rotten stench of corruption.
He especially doesn’t want them to focus on how many million’s the investigations into his practices are costing the local Arizona taxpayer.

One thing that’s immediately noticeable in the video are the strategic placements of Arpaio’s two books. This con artist uses the subject of criminal bestiality to hawk his authoritarian publications to his very simple-minded fan base. Here are just a few Facebook comments from his sycophant fan club.
Beastiality is a serious issue that deserves the attention of law enforcement, however, on the grand scale of things, it’s not a growing national threat, any more than little girls being assaulted by men dressed as females in women’s bathrooms.
But Republicans like Arpaio and Trump often take a page from other Republicans throughout U.S. history, such as Richard Nixon, who created the “War On Drugs” to justify cracking down on anti-war protestors and blacks.
The political term “wagging the dog,” is a term which indicates misdirection by someone who seeks to divert attention from something of greater importance by building up something of lesser importance. However, Arpaio takes this practice to a new and disgusting level.
The best line from the video was when Arpaio put on his “selfless defender of truth” cape and said:
What they call me across the nation. I will not be deterred. And we’re going to keep locking up (dramatic pause) those people (another dramatic pause) that mess around with animals, sexually. We will not surrender.
If there were ever a bigger pile of sanctimonious horse shit spouted in a PSA, you’d hard pressed to find it.
