Fox's Favorite Wingnut Sheriff Encourages More Violence At Trump Rallies

Any time there are black people out there protesting, you can count on Faux "news" to trot out their favorite Uncle Ruckus wingnut Sheriff David Clarke to rush to the racists' defense.

Any time there are black people out there protesting, you can count on Faux "news" to trot out their favorite Uncle Ruckus wingnut Sheriff David Clarke to rush to the racists' defense. This Saturday was no exception, where Clarke joined host Neil Cavuto and not only defended Trump, but did his best to actually encourage more violence from the people that Trump continues to work into a frenzy at these rallies.

Ever since the fiasco that resulted in Trump canceling his event in Chicago this Friday evening, Fox has been doing their best to give their buddy The Donald some cover for his ever escalating violent rhetoric we've been hearing at one after the other of these so called "rallies."

Clarke's remarks are disgusting, but it's what we've come from a network that thrives off of racial division and race baiting to keep their own audience foaming at the mouth with outrage week after week as well.

Here's more on the clip above from Fox's blog: Sheriff Clarke: Protesters at Trump Rally Are 'Anarchists' Who 'Advocate Violence':

Sheriff David Clarke weighed in on the violence that unfolded at Friday's cancelled Donald Trump rally, calling the recorded clashes planned “rebellions” that were “brought on by riot-starters.”

The GOP candidate called off his event last night, saying he didn't want to see "people get hurt" after protesters packed into the Chicago arena where it was to take place.

“You have to identify these creeps for who they are. They’re anarchists,” said Clarke. “They advocate violence, and they advocate chaos to bring down our legally constituted government.”

The Milwaukee County Sheriff called last night’s episodes “a threat to ordered liberty in the United States of America.”

“These presidential candidates and their supporters have every right to participate in this process in our democratic state here in the United States of America,” he said on Cost of Freedom.

“And for that to be thwarted by these bullies, these goons, is downright wrong.”

The sheriff said he believes the Chicago Police “were under-resourced last night,” and should have been “able to accomplish their mission – which was to have this rally go on.”

“This rally was cancelled in the name of public safety. Why don’t we cancel these rebellions in the name of public safety?” he asked.

“When you’re facing a goon and a bully, what you have to do is you have to stand up to them.”
