As so often happens on the Teri O’Brien Show, yesterday we ran out of time before I had the opportunity to play the audio of the Left’s latest hero, Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, who took the opportunity presented by pathetic lone nut Jared Loughner’s shooting rampage to lament the horrid rage pit that the State of Arizona has become. Exhibit A: Their racist immigration policy, of course! On Saturday, he spoke the following words that no doubt inspired the strongest thrill Chris Matthews has had up his leg in years:
“When you look at unbalanced people, how they respond to the vitriol that comes out of certain mouths about tearing down the government. The anger, the hatred, the bigotry that goes on in this country is getting to be outrageous,” said the sheriff. “And unfortunately, Arizona I think has become sort of the capital. We have become the mecca for prejudice and bigotry.”
When asked by a reporter if Giffords being shot could have been motivated by “prejudice and bigotry,” Dupnik responded, “All I can tell you is that there’s reason to believe that this individual may have a mental issue. And I think that people who are unbalanced are especially susceptible to vitriol.”
Here’s the audio:
These disgraceful remarks are no coincidence. Last year, this “public servant” refused to enforce Arizona’s immigration law. He referred to Arizona legislators as “racists” for supporting it. As a result, he has been a hero over at the 24/7 televised nuthouse, MS-NBC. I think voters in that state should target him for defeat. Oh wait …am I still allowed to say that?
In the spirit of the “new tone” that we are all supposed to embrace, and to demonstrate my willingness to follow Keith Olbermann’s lead, I call on all open borders, “comprehensive immigration” advocates to repudiate these McCarthyist remarks and, while they are at it, their contempt for the rule of law. Ditto the New York Times.
