Clarke's taxpayer supported career is based on a deception. And accordingly, Clarke's authoritarian style of control has taken center stage nationally by the major conservative media outlets.
Remember when he pushed self defense over relying on slow 911 responses? Now he's decided to incite riots if we don't do what Republicans want us to do, like electing an authoritarian narcissist like Trump. Sounds like jail time for Clarke.

That’s how I feel about it,” Dan Bowman, a 50-year-old contractor, told the reporters of Clinton. “We’re going to have a revolution and take them out of office if that’s what it takes. There’s going to be a lot of bloodshed. But that’s what it’s going to take… I would do whatever I can for my country.”
