WND Baselessly Claims Man Who Threatened Arpaio Is A 'Fanantical Supporter' of Obama
Topic: WorldNetDaily

A March 14 WorldNetDaily article states that "A Tennessee man described as an Obama 'fanatic' has been convicted of threatening to kill Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his family, possibly in connection with the lawman’s investigation into the president’s eligibility for office." The article goes on to state that "Authorities say [Adam Eugene] Cox’s postings indicate – and his own mother confirms – that Cox is a 'fanatical supporter' of Obama." The "fanatical supporter" quote is repeated in a March 16 WND article by Joe Kovacs featuring Rush Limbaugh's claim that themedia is ignoring the threat against Arpaio.

Even though the articles put "fanatical supporter" in quotes, the person who said that is never identified. Turns out it's Arpaio himself -- and he's wrong.

The Phoenix New Times points out that despite Arpaio's description of Cox as an "Obama fanatic" conflicts with his actual writings, in which he claims "Satan "ordered" him to kill "birthers" to spark a war between political parties in order to decrease the population in America.

Just consider this another part of WND's sucking up to Arpaio in order to keep him promoting the WND birther agenda.
