DOJ SUING SHERIFF JOE:  Seems Eric Holder’s idea of “justice” took another step forward today, with a civil rights lawsuit filed against outspoken Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.  Talking Points Memo Ryan Reilly reports:

DOJ’s suit, filed in the District of Arizona, accuses jail officials of referring to Latinos as “wetbacks,” “Mexican bitches,” and “stupid Mexicans.” The suit says Arpaio “voiced his biased opinion of Latinos and Latino culture” in a book he coauthored in 2008.”

Arpaio singles out Mexicans and Latinos as different from all other immigrant groups in America,” the complaint says. “For example, Arpaio states that Latinos maintain ‘language [,] customs [and] beliefs separate from the mainstream,’ and are trying to “reconquest” American soil through migration to the United States.”

So let me get this straight. It’s a violation of federal civil rights law now to use derogatory slang or express your opinion about things?  Hmmmm….. First Amendment anyone?  Oh, that’s right: progressives think “hate speech” is outside the ambit of the First Amendment.  The present Administration’s culture of intimidation continues…..
