Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. has had enough of a corrupt federal government and media, and evoked imagery of a medieval mob uprising against a corrupt monarch to vividly make his point.
In his call to arms, the pro-Donald Trump sheriff said in a tweet Saturday that the time has now come to take up pitchforks and torches.
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 pic.twitter.com/8G5G0daGVN

The conservative lawman has continued to firmly align himself with the Republican presidential nominee in the face of controversy surrounding the candidate, and has repeatedly denounced Trump’s rival for the White House, Democrat Hillary Clinton.
Clarke also spoke on behalf of Trump at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. The sheriff’s tweet may have been prompted, in part, by the candidate’s tweet earlier Saturday where he referred to a corrupt media trying to rig the election.
This election is being rigged by the media pushing false and unsubstantiated charges, and outright lies, in order to elect Crooked Hillary!

Clarke has also taken on the controversial Black Lives Matter movement, and has accused it of being the catalyst for the rise in murders of law enforcement officers.
“My message has been clear from day one two years ago, this anti-cop sentiment from this hateful ideology called Black Lives Matter has fueled this rage against the American police officer,” Clarke told CNN’s Don Lemon in July. “I predicted this two years ago.”

Similarly, the late Sen. Barry Goldwater once said, “Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. Moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.”
