Neo-Nazi Who Advocated Border Landmines Launches Run For Sheriff in Arizona



Two years ago, he was calling for landmines to be used to stop immigrants from illegally crossing into the US from Mexico. Now, a well known Arizona neo-Nazi wants to be in charge of law enforcement in a vast swath of desert south of Phoenix.

JT Ready filed notice with elections officials in Pinal County, Ariz. last week, saying he is exploring a run for sheriff and plans to collect signatures to get on the 2012 ballot. The office is currently held by rising Republican star Paul Babeu, one of the nation’s leading border hawks. Babeu is leaving the job to run for Congress this year.

“The citizens of Pinal County are under constant threat of encountering the horrific reality of terrible violence associated with illegal immigration,” Ready wrote on his campaign website. “JT is, unquestionably, the common sense choice for sheriff when the public needs safety and security now more than ever.”

He told TPM on Monday that he respects the Democratic Party’s history, saying it was the party that brought about Jim Crow laws and Alabama’s segregationist Gov. George Wallace.

Sounds like he is angling for some Democratic votes with his reference to his "respect" for the Democratic Party as the party of Jim Crow and George Wallace.

11. Exactly, well said.

Ron Paul the racist is running for President and the GOP is never confronted and corrected by media about its racial rhetoric. It's shameful that in the year 2012 a Ron Paul would be given the time of day! much less a podium at a Presidential debate.

So, yeah. This guy running for Sheriff? not shocking, expected. Arizona has a big opportunity here... It'll be interesting to see if he gets any traction.

4. Yep, that's the only thing missing. They've got all of the hatred lined up. GOP values,

priority #1 = Hatred ... Hatred for something. Maybe they ought to just relabel the party from GOP to United Hatred.

8. Wonder how long he'd last in the heat.

what with wearing black and being rather large. And with that helmet I'd say the heat curdled his brain.

10. Doesn't look like he coulds "run" for much of anything. Does his

head look too small for his body?
