The Cornfield Resistance on Chuck, Nancy, Hurricane Irma and DACA

This happens when a kopper koated knucklehead pardons a racist sheriff

Every day, it just gets worse:

After receiving President Trump’s first pardon, Joe Arpaio’s plans have gone from possible prison to book-writing, speeches and potentially another run for office in Arizona, with Sen. Jeff Flake’s seat one opportunity he is eyeing.

The former Maricopa County sheriff told the Washington Examiner he’s upset at negative reaction to the Friday pardon, and that he feels Republican politicians are insufficiently supportive of the president, who he calls a great man.

“I could run for mayor, I could run for legislator, I could run for Senate,” Arpaio said Monday. One particular race, however, is likely to gain significant attention: the GOP primary next year facing Flake, R-Ariz., a forceful Trump critic.

“I’m sure getting a lot of people around the state asking me” to challenge Flake, said Arpaio, who served 24 years as sheriff before losing reelection in 2016. “All I’m saying is the door is open and we’ll see what happens. I’ve got support. I know what support I have.”

 

Why would they call hiim that?

Trump and Arpaio both built their political careers by demonizing immigrants. They also both raised their national profiles by claiming that Barack Obama was secretly a Kenyan-born Muslim, a racist conspiracy theory that Arpaio even sent a taxpayer-funded deputy to Hawaii to investigate.

And more broadly they both seem to use “law and order” as code for encouraging law enforcement to harass people of color.

Those are the best-known parallels between the two politicians, but they’re hardly the only ones. There are many other ways in which Arpaio has proved to be Trump’s mini-me.

A beloved undocumented immigrant discusses diversity

Here’s the Man of Steel in 1949:

The krazy kook of kopper who extols the virtues of very fine klansmen, Nazis and white supremacists could have learned something from this. But he won’t:

President Trump on Friday pardoned former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio — a move that keeps one of his staunchest political allies out of jail and will likely cheer his conservative base, which supports both men’s hard-line views on illegal immigration.

The unusual pardon — coming less than a month after Arpaio was convicted, and before his planned October sentencing — will further anger the president’s critics and is likely to worsen the president’s already tense relationship with the judicial branch, which he has repeatedly criticized.

A pardon is perhaps the only way to make Arpaio — a longtime county sheriff who gained national fame and notoriety for his aggressive pursuit of undocumented immigrants — a more polarizing figure than he already is.

Add this guy to the undocumented list:

And I’m sure Kal-El doesn’t believe this anymore:

Because pussygrabber is doing this:

President Donald Trump appears likely to pull the plug on DACA, the Obama-era program allowing young people who came to the U.S. illegally as children to remain here, several government officials said Friday.

Administration officials said Friday that the Homeland Security secretary, Elaine Duke, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions discussed the program with senior officials Thursday during a meeting at the White House. Sessions has been a consistent opponent of the program.

As many as 1 million immigrants could be affected.

There’s the border. Don’t let your cape get stuck on the way out.

The tears of the orange menace’s apologist

The Rude Pundit read the same op-ed I did in the “failing” New York Times and had the same reaction I did:

In the New York Times, one of Donald Trump’s most loyal taint-lickers, Julius Krein, has scribbled a mea culpa titled “I Voted for Trump. And I Sorely Regret It.” It’s a story of a love gone wrong, about how a man was so enamored of another man that he couldn’t see who that man really was or, indeed, who he himself was. Oh, Krein, who started a blog to “intellectual Trumpism” titled, stupidly, the Journal of American Greatness, totally believed Trump: “Mr. Trump’s policy positions were poorly defined, but these days, most candidates’ positions are. And yes, he had little support from the Republican Party leadership. But many of us thought even this might be a positive if it forced him to focus on ‘making deals’ rather than on Washington’s usual ideological posturing. He was never going to fulfill all of his over-the-top promises, but we believed that his administration might achieve some meaningful successes.”
And as for the racism? That was just something to be elided over for Krein: “Many of his supporters, myself included, managed to convince ourselves that his more outrageous comments…were merely Bidenesque gaffes committed during the heat of a campaign.” For the record, Joe Biden never called for all Muslims to be banned from coming into the United States and probably wouldn’t consider that specific, scripted, racist campaign promise a “gaffe.”
But now Krein’s eyes are wide, wide open. “It is now clear that we were deluding ourselves” about Trump’s racism, Krein writes. And “Far from making the transformative ‘deals’ he promised voters, his only talent appears to be creating grotesque media frenzies — just as all his critics said.”
To which one can only say to Krein:
Fuck you, you pretentious prick. Take a stack of papers with your regret written all over it, roll it up into a thick tube, and go fuck yourself with it.

And I’ll bet by the title on this post, you though I was referring to this:

She cries because she doesn’t want people to think she’s a bad person for supporting a krimson koated klansman. Sorry, that train has left the track. She’s a bad person.
