The liberal protests and resistance campaigns against Republicans, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, and the Trump administration, exacerbated by dangerous rhetoric from Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., are closing in "on the doorstep of political violence," former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke told Newsmax TV on Tuesday.
"This the sort of stuff they're resorting to because they can't win debates, they can't win public support for their crazy views," Clarke told "America Talks Live." "So, they're resorting to fear and intimidation, which is why I said – this is not hyperbole, this is not a stretch – I said 'They're on the doorstep of political violence.'
"I think you're going to see more acts of it as we go on."

Clarke, responding to the accosting of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and his wife at a Washington, D.C., restaurant, said there is "an unwritten code" about giving people their "personal space," and violating that can lead to trouble for those accosting someone less tolerant than Sen. Cruz.
"This is the way to handle it for him, but I'll tell you what, I walk around sometimes begging for these people to find me," Clarke told hosts Miranda Khan, John Cardillo, and Gina Loudon.
"I wish these goons would accost me like that, because like I said, they're going to get a very different response."
