The tyranny of Sheriff Joe Arpaio is public record.
The Justice Department and the U.S. Attorney's Office declined comment.
But the political calculation involved in the Justice Department's refusal to confront evil is shortsighted.
Following her publication of Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil, Hannah Arendt wrote not just about those in authority, but about how inhumane principles spread in the general population.
She observed that the banal evil of an Adolf Eichmann, whom she considered a "buffoon," could spread like a "fungus" because it was too shallow to have roots, roots that could be examined and removed by rational thought: What part of illegal don't you understand?
The Justice Department is kidding itself if it believes that Arpaio can be contained. Arpaio was invited into the Midwest to speak on behalf of presidential hopeful Mitt Romney. More recently, he has campaigned on behalf of Sheriff's Office candidates in San Diego and Orange County, California, and spoken to supporters in Texas.
Far from disappearing quietly, Sheriff Joe Arpaio is Arendt's fungus.
Obama's calculation is simple: Will voters leave him for not indicting Sheriff Joe Arpaio?
Where can the rest of us go?
Apparently, we can go to hell.
Are you kidding me...
"President Barack Obama gracefully accepted the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, Norway."
Since then he has illegally started or involved us with wars in Libya and Syria, intensified fighting in Afghanistan, and claimed to withdraw our troops from Iraq, after the Iraqi government refused to extend our stay and grant immunity to U.S. Soldiers. This of course, was the timeline set by the previous war criminal, Bush.
Could you be any more biased in your "journalism" with this article?
