Sheriff Joe Arpaio Appears On Holocaust-Denying Website

Controversial former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio has been lying low since being pardoned by President Donald Trump last month, but recently Arpaio broke his silence — and granted an interview with a Holocaust-denying website.

In a September 15 interview with the American Free Press — titled “Arapio Bypasses the Fake Media” — Arpaio discussed his political ambitions, suggesting that he might run again for public office.

As Mediate reported, “the outlet Arpaio chose to grant an interview is sure to draw plenty of criticism.”

The Anti-Defamation League describes American Free Press as “an anti-Semitic conspiracy-oriented newspaper” published by Willis Carto, a man the ADL calls a “longtime white supremacist.” The site boasts a large store, where they sell titles such as “Made in Israel: 9-11 and the Jewish Plot Against America” and “The Holocaust Never Happened,” alongside others on subjects like the Illuminati and UFOS.
