The unwitting former Milwaukee sheriff ended up explaining to an absurdist Sacha Baron Cohen character in the Showtime series "Who is America?" episode Sunday how he would have helped stop anti-fascists marching in Germany in the 1930's:
Cohen then asks Clarke what he would have done in 1930s Germany as the Nazis came to power.
“So if you were the sheriff in the '30s in Germany, and the anti-fascists were marching, the antifa were marching, what would you have done to stop them?” Whizzboy [Cohen] asks.
“Well, you have to act aggressively,” Clarke says. “When I say that, you have to use force to disperse the crowd. You have to be willing to arrest people and take them to jail.”
The skit ultimately ends with Cohen and Clarke doing jazz hands together.
