YMCA: Former Sheriff David Clarke Slinks Back To Twitter After Being Forced To Delete Threatening Tweets

CNN reports:

Former Milwaukee Sheriff David A. Clarke, Jr., a vocal surrogate for President Donald Trump on the campaign trail, was temporarily blocked from tweeting after Twitter users’ complaints alerted the company that three of his messages violated the terms of service, CNN has learned.

Clarke was placed in read-only mode until he deleted three tweets that seemed to call for violence against members of the media.

In one of them, which has since been deleted, Clarke told his followers, “When LYING LIB MEDIA makes up MAKE NEWS to smear me, the ANTIDOTE is to go right at them. Punch them in the nose & MAKE THEM TASTE THEIR OWN BLOOD. Nothing gets a bully like LYING LIB MEDIA”S attention better than to give them a taste of their own blood #neverbackdown.”

    A gentleman removes his hat when he goes indoors. The only exception being a cowboy, who’s hat is a part of his work uniform. Clark is no cowboy, also no gentleman.

    • clay

      Okay, so maybe not that last one.

      • olandp

        That headgear is necessary for their job, and not necessarily a hat that is worn at other times. When was the last time you saw a chef wearing his hat on the sidewalk?

        • clay

          (last night, smoke break, but you did ask)

          • olandp

            But technically, still working.

  • The_Wretched

    I’m glad twitter finally got around to taking action. It’s clear, however, that it was media blowback on their double standard that made the difference and not the initial flagging of his comments as TOS violations.

    • Nowhereman

      I’ve been wondering why twitter hasn’t taken down Trump’s account yet. Then I got to thinking–perhaps they are under order by Mueller to leave it up. It’s a treasure trove of self-inflicted admissions of guilt.

      • prixator

        Also, full of evidence of his unfitness for the job. And, likely mental illness, too.

        As well, taking it down would ruin a lot of people’s morning laugh.

        • Nowhereman

          Morning laugh, daily shit show, a trip to the Twilight Zone–it’s all the same these days it seems.

    OT: In Search of the Black Confederate Unicorn

    Two South Carolina legislators who sponsored a bill to erect a monument to African-American Confederate Veterans were confronted over the weekend with new evidence that the men they wish to honor never existed.

    In October, state Representatives Bill Chumley (R) and Mike Burns (R) announced that they would file a bill ahead of the state’s January legislative session that would add a monument to African-American Confederate war veterans on the statehouse grounds. As this article in the Post and Courier from October 9th notes, this is despite the fact that historians consider the idea of African-American Confederate veterans a myth which grew up in the post-Civil Rights Era as emblems and symbols of the Confederacy became more universally identified with racism.

    As historian Walter Edgar told The State newspaper, not only is there no evidence of any black South Carolina soldiers fighting for the Confederacy, the state specifically rejected free blacks volunteers at the outset of the war because of longstanding opposition to arming blacks, free or enslaved. As Edgar put it, “any African-American who served in a Confederate unit in South Carolina was either a slave or an unpaid laborer working against his will.”

      • liondon#iamnotatraitor

        my thoughts exactly….BUT THERE MUST HAVE BEEN AT LEAST ONE!!!

        • Gustav2

          In any case, The ‘State’ reviewed state pension records to see if there was any evidence of Chumley and Burns black confederates. It didn’t pan out.

          “The State newspaper reviewed pension records from 1923 that show three blacks claimed armed service in South Carolina units under the Confederacy. Two pensions were confirmed as cooks or servants, and none for armed service.”

          The best part of the whole story is Chumley’s reaction to the State report: “We are all learning a lot. The purpose of the bill is education.”

    • Helen Damnation™

      Republicans are desperate to memorialize something, somebody, anybody, which would make it seem they are “fighting for the people”, rather than actually creating legislation that actually helps the country or its people.

      • JAKvirginia

        They can put this up right next to the Americans Who Fought for Hitler Monument.

    Not to put too fine a point on this but [gasp] he is wearing a ‘straw’ hat in January? Have you no shame man?

    “Saddle up”…as Clarke climbs atop his long-dead steed for 2018. Still no job…despite promises from the Trump regime. No longer Sheriff of Milwaukee County, and now under investigation for prison abuses, as well as his traitorous role in colluding with Russia. Clarke, I would say “buckle up,” because you are sitting in the electric chair, bud.

  • Juvela Bumblebee

    I think the worst thing to ever happen to him would be for him to see himself clearly as he is. I wish there were a pill for that. If there were, I would slip it to him and every member of Congress, the Senate, and even the Traitor himself. Maybe not, the massive wave of subsequent suicides would not be something I would want on my head. However, given appropriate medical supervision (and probably restraints), it would be a good thing. A capacity for honest introspection is not fun, but at least it saves you from making a complete ass of yourself.

    • Lars Littlefield

      There is such a pill/drug. It is called LSD.

      • Juvela Bumblebee

        Lord, how I wish that were so. In my experience, the people who benefit from LSD seem to have been those already given to introspection. People not so inclined just had a good time, mostly, although we have all heard of those who had a very bad experience.

    Anyway the people around trump astounded me. Carson and other religious types and then this Clark guy. How are the religious nuts choosing him? Also sad they only chose the religious crazies to put in the picture- they think religion is helping. Ha ha ha.

  • peacfulseas inWA

    I’d change my name to Media if I thought this coward were actually serious. Notice he wasn’t about to punch any of the media in the nose. Let someone else get arrested.Coward and user likes to command others to do his dirty work. Kinda reminds me of another jackass.

  • Just so you know, everyone of these nuts get their news and intelligence from Fox News propaganda at the hands of THE most powerful man on the planet – Rupert Murdoch, who was enabled by Ronald Reagan. RR dismantled the Fairness Doctrine at the behest of Murdoch in the 80s. This allowed and continues to allow for yellow journalism to be portrayed as fact, further feathering the elite’s ability to increase their power and wealth.

  • Mr Clarke is totally insane, the butter has run off his noodles for sure. He went on a complete twitter meltdown for days with vulgar insults and derogatory remarks to stir up hatred. How can we trust someone who looks like a Village People reject.

    • Halou

      And all because his emails were confiscated by the FBI. Apparently something about that action made him feel weak and vulnerable so he had to big himself up like a 12 year old would.
      Who knew that breaking the law would have consequences?

  • Halou

    He is still eating sour grapes by the ton.

    https://twitter.com/SheriffClarke/status/948255627427663872

    He talks of people who want to “weaponize government authorirty” as if it’s a bad thing, as if he didn’t have airport security with canine support units detain a man for hurting his feelings that one time.. Clear and obvious projection.
    He’s just mad that he can’t act like Dear Dotard’s tyrannical mini-me.
