The black sheriff every white nationalist loves calls for a violent uprising if Trump loses.
Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr., the prancing poseur in a cowboy hat and Fox News darling, is apparently starved for a little media attention, and so he is using his Twitter account to inflame the deplorables.
Inciting Trump’s basket of deplorables to violence, the flamboyant sheriff is abandoning law and order in favor of mob rule.
Clarke, the Fox News darling who bashes African Americans while snuggling up to white supremacists, tweeted the following this weekend:
It’s incredible that our institutions of gov, WH, Congress, DOJ, and big media are corrupt & all we do is bitch. Pitchforks and torches time

Commenting on Sheriff Clarke’s irresponsible and dangerous call for violence, the web publication Essence notes:
It’s terrifying that Clarke, a man in charge of law and order, is calling for violence.
Essence reports Clarke has been a vocal supporter of Trump and once called Occupy Wall Street and the Black Lives Matter movements a symbol of anarchy.
Speaking at at the Republican National Convention in July Clarke declared:
What we witnessed in Ferguson, in Baltimore, and in Baton Rouge was a collapse of social order. So many of the actions of the Occupy movement and Black Lives Matter transcend peaceful protest, and violates the code of conduct we rely on.
And now the tables are turned. The man who once bashed Black Lives Matter and the Occupy movement is now singing the song of the white nationalist, and threatening armed rebellion if Trump is not elected president.
FreeThinker reports Clarke is no stranger to controversy. Back in 2006 the Christian extremist invited members of an evangelical Christian organization, the Fellowship of Christian Centurions, to speak at several mandatory employee meetings. Despite complaints about the groups’ proselytising, Clarke refused to stop the presentations.
As a result of his illegal conduct, the sheriff deputies’ union and two individual sheriff’s deputies successfully sued Clarke. Clarke attempted to appeal the loss, but was defeated.
In a blog post defending his recent tweet advocating mob violence, Clarke wrote:
It’s time to run those corrupt politicians out of Washington DC and back to whatever crevices they crawled from. It’s time to put Mrs. Bill Clinton behind bars, where she belongs. And it’s time that the DOJ learns what the “J” stands for in their name.
Clearly Clarke is a deplorable human being lacking the temperament and the character to be Milwaukee County Sheriff. In his latest twitter rant he has violated his office and those he is sworn to serve and protect by inviting Trump’s basket of deplorables to take up arms and use violence against the U.S. government and popular media outlets.
Bottom line: Clarke should do the honorable thing and resign, and if he fails to do so, he should be removed. By calling for illegal mob action Sheriff Clarke has betrayed his office and the rule of law, and has demonstrated that he is unfit to serve.
