He’s never been afraid to call it like he sees it. Why should now be different?
“It’s incredible that our institutions of gov, (White House), Congress, (Department of Justice), and big media are corrupt & all we do is bitch,” Clarke wrote on Saturday. “Pitchforks and torches time.”
This was after an earlier tweet in which Clarke said the government “has lost its healthy fear of the masses and WE THE PEOPLE.” He continued: “It is pitchfork & torches time in America.”
Those tweets got a quick reaction from mainstream media attacking Clarke. The sheriff replied saying media like CNN and ABC “should be as interested in reporting on Wikileaks and (Democratic presidential nominee Hillary) Clinton corruption than my tweets.” He also said that “big media … freak(ed) out” over his comments.
To show the absurdity of the media’s complaints he joked that his posts had sparked “a run on pitchforks and tiki lamp oil at Home Depot!”
That sums up the problem pretty succinctly. They get freaked out about the criticism of wrongdoing. Of watching the watchdogs. Not the actual wrongdoing itself.
Like Donna Brazile’s conniption when she ignored the fact that she rigged the debates and instead attacked anyone daring to take Wikileaks as a valid source. Clearly, NO leftist ever accepted Wikileaks as a valid source when they were blowing the whistle on Dubya. Right?
Oh. That hurts the narrative? Nevermind. Forget we even asked.
And, if he ever suddenly ‘disappears’… do remember that he has publicly spoken out against the Clintons, would you?
