Sheriff Chris Clinton

HIAWASSEE, Ga. – Towns County Sheriff Chris Clinton reverberated recent concerns during a scheduled appearance before the Towns County Republican Party Thursday, Nov. 15, warning of what he believes are imminent dangers, particularly those attached to the migrant caravans swarming the southern U.S. border.

Sheriff Clinton maintained that the caravan is a choreographed invasion spun into play by left-wing operatives in an effort to gain a tighter chokehold on the future of America. The sheriff adamantly reiterated that violent gang members, specifically those affiliated with brutal El Salvadorian MS-13, are among the South American insurgents seeking entry.

The brazen sheriff stressed that the threat of political violence erupting, propelled by radical agitators, is a legitimate cause for consternation.

“Invasion is an act of war,” Clinton asserted, referencing 18 U.S Code § 2381, adding that government officials aiding in an insurrection are subject to charges, “Treason is punishable by death, but certainly you can’t hold office.”

Sheriff Clinton openly admitted that his unwaivering posture has drawn harsh criticism from detractors. “They hate Towns County. They hate me,” the sheriff stated, divulging that he has been accused of fear mongering, “I don’t do this job to keep me safe…I love America, I love Towns County, and I stand bold.”

In addition to speaking on gangs and the migrant caravan, Clinton discussed gun laws, the opioid epidemic, and the recent midterm elections.

Towns County Sheriff warns Abrams win could lead to violence

Election 2018, News
Towns County Sheriff

HIAWASSEE, Ga. – Towns County Sheriff Chris Clinton took a solid stand on social media in the days leading into the general midterm election, warning Georgia voters of what he believes will result in dire repercussions should Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams prove to be the victor on Tuesday, Nov. 6.

Clinton – a self-professed Constitutional Conservative serving his third term as Towns County’s lead lawman – insists that the caravan of migrants swelling toward the southern U.S. border is nothing short of an orchestrated invasion.

“This is for real, folks,” Clinton cautioned, “This is an invasion that will end Georgia and America if it is not stopped. The left wants to destroy everything you and I love about our great state. Abrams and her out-of-state friends want to destroy everything we love about America.”

In a shared post on social media, the sheriff added, “Vote Brian Kemp Georgia’s next Governor and stop this extreme and dangerous socialist agenda.”

The sheriff stressed that the motive behind the migrant caravan is to add future backup supporters for the Democratic candidate’s socialist cause, claiming that violent MS-13 gang criminals are embedded within the mass of the estimated 12,000 foreigners.

“MS-13 is an extremely violent and brutal gang with no more respect for your front door or your family than they have for any nation’s borders or civil authorities,” Clinton warned.

“Abrams thinks the folks doing all this are good people and should be allowed to join her cause,” Clinton went on to explain, “Meanwhile, she believes that the law enforcement officers risking their lives to keep us safe are like terrorists.”

Clinton concluded with an expressive plea for Georgians to cast their vote for Republican candidate Brian Kemp in order to “stop this radical, extremist, socialist, anti-American, anti-Georgian, anti-farmer, anti-law enforcement, anti-unborn child, anti-liberty” agenda.

The sheriff later reiterated his outlook in a conversation with FYN on Nov. 2. “I am certain that Towns Countians are informed and are doing our part,” Clinton assured, “Let us all pray for a healing of our nation. While praying, vote.”

Sheriff Clinton is scheduled to address the Town County Republican Party on Thursday, Nov. 15, speaking on the encroaching caravan, gangs, guns, and the opioid epidemic.

Towns County GOP meets on the third Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. at the Towns County Civic Center in Hiawassee. Meetings are open to the public.
