Seriously, Stop The Sheriffs Before It's Too LateTranscript here for the literate. It's barely fascism, just barbarianism.
The frontier has been closed since 1890 & the structure of local gov't. has evolved. We don't elect chiefs of police, & there's nothing in the freaking Constitution about sheriffs; they should be appointed like all the other oinkers.Guandolo echoes talking points put forth by extremists like Richard Mack, the founder of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association, which teaches that “the power of the sheriff even supersedes the powers of the president” and urges local law enforcement to resist federal authority. This false idea that the sheriff holds supreme authority has increased in popularity among right-wing activists who would like to see sheriffs conduct more audits of the 2020 presidential election and be more involved in future elections.
