    David Clarke: Fla. students' gun control push has 'George Soros' fingerprints all over it'

    Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. insinuated Wednesday that student survivors of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting were being manipulated by Democratic billionaire George Soros to organize for gun control.

    The truth is, not all of the "students" there are students there.

    In a tweet, the former Wisconsin sheriff wrote that media appearances and an activism campaign from students of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School against gun violence had "George Soros' fingerprints all over it."

    ..........

    Clarke's tweet follows false conspiracy theories in right-wing media such as Gateway Pundit claiming that students at the Florida high school who have appeared on CNN, including David Hogg, are "crisis actors" paid to exploit the shooting for nefarious purposes.

    Note that they say that, and even mention the most infamous person, the most obvious case of it being falsified and manipulated. But they make no effort to explain his presence, or the presence of at least 2 of the girls who show up other places in other incidents. They just call it a "false conspiracy theory" and you're supposed to accept that in the face of a mountain of evidence to the contrary. Therefore, by extension any reference to George Soros paying for all of it is also a "false conspiracy theory." There's no need for them to even touch on that point because it's so obvious.
