Earlier this week, a federal jury ruled in favor of former Sheriff David Clarke Monday in a lawsuit alleging that his Facebook posts infringed on a man’s right to free speech, according to the Daily Caller.
Right after this lawsuit was filed, EVERY SINGLE media outlet hammered him for these accusations and they wouldn’t let up. However, they’ve been COMPLETELY SILENT since he won.
Now, he’s targeting them:
Still no calls for comment from CNN, MSNBC, SO, N.Y. TIMES or WASHINGTON Post who were ALL calling for comment when this frivolous law suit was filed. The truth came out and it was always on my side Clarke Wins Facebook Free Speech Case | The Daily Callerhttps://t.co/jizTFplejU

“Still no calls for comment from CNN, MSNBC, SO, N.Y. TIMES or WASHINGTON Post who were ALL calling for comment when this frivolous law suit was filed. The truth came out and it was always on my side”, Tweeted Clarke.
Here’s more details about this case from the Daily Caller:
Dan Black, 25, shared a flight with Clarke in 2017, which ended with the former sheriff detaining him when the plane landed, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported. Black reportedly shook his head at Clarke before the plane took off, apparently causing Clarke to feel threatened. Black filed a formal complaint with the Milwaukee police after his release, but Clarke made two posts on the Milwaukee Sheriff’s Office Facebook page which Black claims were so intimidating that he was dissuaded from ever seeking a redress of grievances from a government official, allegedly violating his right to free speech.
The jury disagreed, siding with arguments from Clarke’s lawyer, Charles Bohl. Bohl argued that rather than infringing on his right to free speech, Black’s incident with Clarke only encouraged it, as the man conducted three TV interviews in the days afterward.
Black told interviewers that he’d recognized Clarke before the plane they shared left Dallas in January 2017, and that he’d asked whether Clarke was in fact the Sheriff Clarke. When Clarke answered in the affirmative, Black shook his head and walked away. When the plane landed in Milwaukee, six deputies were there to detain and question Black at Clarke’s request.
Isn’t it interesting that the media is completely silent about things that don’t benefit them? They are NOT fair, and they never will be! This is why NOBODY trusts the pure scum that the media has become!!!
