Sheriff David Clarke is encouraging a crowd to pick up “pitchforks and torches” against the media. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“At a post-election victory rally in Wisconsin yesterday, President-elect Donald Trump once again invited Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke to rile up the crowd. Clarke, who declared at a Trump campaign rally in October that it was “pitchfork and torches time in America,” repeated his call to the victorious crowd yesterday, saying that they should have their “pitchforks and torches ready” to help Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence “push back” against the “subversive” progressive movement.
Calling mainstream media outlets like The New York Times and the Washington Post a “fake news network,” Clarke dismissed intelligence findings about Russia’s interference in the election and declared that Congress should instead investigate what he claimed was philanthropist George Soros’ funding of riots after the election.”
