In an interview with Sacha Baron Cohen dressed as his Finnish YouTube personality OMGWhizzboyOMG, Sheriff David Clarke tried to explain that Antifa (or anti-fascists) are actually anarchists trying to bring down America.
“Again, this is not protesters,” Clarke said.
He then spoke directly to Mackenzie Maple Donut, explaining she shouldn’t join Antifa because they’re responsible for killing police officers.
“So, if you were in Germany in the 1930s and the anti-fascists were marching, the Antifa were marching — what would you have done to stop them?” Cohen asked.
“Well, you have to act aggressively,” Clarke explained. “You’ve got to use force, disperse the crowd. You have to be willing to arrest people. Take them to jail.”
Cohen agreed with Clarke, saying that it was “a shame there weren’t brave sheriffs like [Clarke] around in Germany in 30s. Because you could have protected the fascists and let them speak their mind a bit clearer and then things could have been done a bit quicker.”
Clarke explained that no one wants to “take sides.”
After unboxing the toy, Cohen then managed to get Clarke to sniff his fingers.
“They smell sweet,” he said.
Cohen said that his smelled like his sister.
“I’m not going there,” Clarke said.
Cohen’s character revealed that his sister was actually killed and that the police were corrupt in the investigation.
They ended by doing jazz-hands together.

Expert explains the psychopathology that underlies Trump’s dictatorial behavior
I’m not being hyperbolic or melodramatic when I say that democracy itself is on the line on November 3. Donald Trump has been on a mission to subvert our democracy and to push it toward an autocracy. No president has ever disavowed democracy like Trump. No president has ever wanted to change our democratic way of life like Trump.
Trump has shown little interest or intent in following our Constitution. He is not abiding by the emoluments clause. He breaks norms and rules at will. He does not recognize that the three branches of government are co-equal. He operates as if the executive branch has total power. Our democracy is not based on the executive branch having absolute power. It requires that the three branches have separate powers in a check-and-balances system. Trump impugns democracy because it limits his power and requires him to be held accountable.
‘Donald who?’ Presidential historian predicts GOP support for Trump will erode in the face of a ‘blue wave’
MSNBC's Jon Meacham predicts that President Donald Trump won't be able to count on Republican support through a lengthy vote-counting process.
The historian and author told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that GOP support may wane if Democrats strengthen their House majority and take over the Senate from Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, even if the results of the presidential election aren't known until weeks later.
"There's a much better chance that Joe Biden will end up somewhat centering the Democratic Party than anybody is going to come along and center the Republican Party," Meacham said, "and I think that's an existential threat to a Republican Party that has sold its soul, the check bounced, and they've got to figure out what are they going to do to attempt to be something approaching majority party in this demographically changing country."
Historian details how ‘anti-science’ views of white evangelicals in the South helped fuel the 2nd wave of COVID-19
When the coronavirus pandemic was killing thousands of New York City residents in the spring, many far-right Republicans in Texas and the Deep South argued that they shouldn’t be forced to practice social distancing or wear protective face masks because of a Northeastern Corridor problem. They failed to realize that pandemics, from the Black Death in Medieval times to the Spanish flu in 1918/1919, can rapidly spread from one place to another. Historian Laura Ellyn Smith, in a blistering op-ed for the Washington Post, discusses the fact that COVID-19 has been hitting the South so hard recently — and argues that the “anti-science” views of far-right white Christian fundamentalists are partly to blame.
