In September, ex-Sheriff Joe Arpaio gave an interview to a propaganda outlet that engages in Holocaust denial according to Media Matters For America. The propaganda outlet not only engages in Holocaust denial, it also sells books that do the same.
American Free Press published a September 15 piece by roving editor Mark Anderson stating that it “recently” interviewed Arpaio to combat “the false narrative that Arpaio had engaged in ‘racial profiling’ when his deputies apprehended illegal alien suspects.” The piece shared details from their conversation, including regarding Arpaio’s false campaign claiming former President Barack Obama’s birth certificate is fake. The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has described American Free Press as "an anti-Semitic conspiracy-oriented newspaper" that attracts "the most vitriolic anti-Semites." The New York Times wrote that the late Willis Carto, who helped found the publication, “used lobbying and publishing to denigrate Jews and other minorities and galvanize the movement to deny the Holocaust." The site’s bookstore sells The Holocaust Never Happened & The CIA Killed JFK, a book that claims to “destroy the hoax of the 6 million Jewish victims of Nazi Germany”; and another book claiming “that the official narrative of the Holocaust cannot be sustained.”
