Boston Police Department Union Has an Incredibly Fucked Up Newsletter

Illustration for article titled Boston Police Department Union Has an Incredibly Fucked Up Newsletter

The Boston Police Patrolmen's Association, Inc. (est. 1984) calls itself the "Nation's First Police Department," so maybe we should give them the benefit of the doubt when it comes to their union's consistently offensive newsletter, Pax Centurion. Maybe it's really a postmodern art project/bingo game in which readers can win if they correctly identify all of the groups targeted each month.


Take the most recent issue. Misogyny? Check! Homophobia? Check! Islamophobia? Xenophobia? A defense of racial profiling, just for good measure? Check, check, and check again. Some examples:

"The new Egyptian Government has declared it legal to have sex with your dead wife within 6 hours of her expiration. The sex is the same, but the dishes pile up." (C3)

"Why is it guys complain about women nagging them, but continue to use Siri and GPS featuring a woman's voice?" (C3)

"Oh those loony lefties! wants the word "Illegal" banned when it's used with alien or immigrant. According to the moonbat website the word is racist, dehumanizing (did ET or ALF complain?) and inaccurate. MoveOn is inaccurate-how can the phrase be racist when it refers to ALL groups not here legally-whether black, white or hispanic?" (C3)

"Everyone seems to be wondering why Middle Eastern Muslim terrorists are so quick to volunteer on a mission to commit suicide. Let's take a closer look at their lifestyle...... No Beer, No Bars, No Booze. None. Never! Sand. @#$%^&& sand everywhere! ... No thongs. No Victoria's Secret. ... The women have to wear baggy dresses and veils at all times. Your bride is picked by someone else. ... And they tell you that when you die it all gets better! You'll get a plethora of virgins to pick from. No wonder there is no shortage of volunteers for suicide missions!" (C5)

"Anti-Bullying activist Dan Savage bashed the Bible and Christians to the extent that many of the students attending his seminar walked out...guess it takes one to know one!" (C11)

"Happy Birthday you rotten Commies! Maybe your candidate for squaw I mean senator, Liz Warren (your founder) can bake you a cake." (C11; addressed to Occupy Boston)

"they never were fed so well, nor had so many liberal college girls showered "compassion" upon them, in one form or another… Ahem…" (A9; regarding visitors to Occupy Boston)

Boys will be boys, right? Until they grow up and become cops.

That's what I get for generalizing and stereotyping. I always imagined Boston cops to be cut from sort of a traditional/blue-collar/union/Democrat cloth.

Not cut from an Ed Hardy shirt and Rush Limbaugh's underroos.
