George Soros' fingerprints are "all over" the push to demand gun control in response to last week's Parkland, FL high school shooting, claimed former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr.
Clarke made the startling allegation in a Tuesday tweet, saying "The well ORGANIZED effort by Florida school students demanding gun control has GEORGE SOROS' FINGERPRINTS all over it." Adding "It is similar to how he hijacked and exploited black people's emotion regarding police use of force incidents into the COP HATING Black Lives Matter movement."

Clarke, a vocal Trump supporter who resigned as sheriff last year amid speculation he would join the Trump administration, is a senior advisor and spokesman for the pro-Trump America First Action PAC; he fired off the tweet in advance of a planned appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) later this week.
Several conspiracy theories have emerged in the wake of the Valentine's day shooting, which left seventeen people dead when a gunman opened fire on students in the early afternoon. A clip which was promptly featured on YouTube earlier, claimed that various students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School are "crisis actors" who are being used as political cudgels in efforts to repeal the Second Amendment.
An aide to Florida State Rep. Shawn Harrison (R) was fired Tuesday after emailing a reporter to suggest that student David Hogg and others are crisis actors. "Both kids in the picture are not students here but actors that travel to various crisis when they happen," wrote now-fired aide Benjamin Kelly - drawing condemnation from the likes of Florida Senator Marco Rubio (R) and Harrison.

“On behalf of the entire Florida House, I sincerely apologize to the students targeted and again commend them for their courage through this unspeakable tragedy,” said Florida House Speaker Richard Corcoran (R) over Twitter.
