A Warning Label

Keeping in mind that Hillary got more votes…



The First Amendment protects the right of to join together in peaceful protest. And on Wednesday night, many Americans throughout the country did just that in response to the election of Donald Trump.

But as those protests occurred, one of Trump’s potential choices to lead the Department of Homeland Security tweeted that they “must be quelled” because “there is no legitimate reason to protest the will of the people.” He included a picture of himself brandishing a U.S. Constitution for emphasis.

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is one of two names being floated to become Donald Trump’s Homeland Security secretary, according to Politico…

Clarke’s language isn’t necessarily surprising. He blamed protests that erupted in Milwaukee in August, following the fatal police shooting of Sylville Smith, on “the growth of the underclass.” In 2014, he characterized protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, as “vultures on a roadside carcass.” But Wednesday’s remarks are especially chilling when they come from someone who could be a top-ranking law enforcement official under the next President…

The other person reportedly in the mix for the Homeland Security job is New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Christie’s reputation is in tatters since two of his top lieutenants were convicted earlier this month for orchestrating a 2013 shutdown of traffic onto the George Washington Bridge as an act of political retribution.
