Sheriff Joe Arpaio has a message for violent, flag-burning, anti-Trump protesters – pull those stunts in his district, and there’s going to be a price to pay!

In fact, he had a three-word response to Stuart Varney who asked, “What would you do with those protesters, sheriff?”

“Lock ’em up,” he immediately responded.

Arpaio, who has endorsed Trump, took particular exception to those liberals who partake in the burning and trampling of the American flag, calling them “disgusting” and “sad.”

He also referred to them as “gangbangers,” which the liberal media will no doubt portray as a racist comment.

Via Fox News Insider:

Sheriff Joe Arpaio reacted to violent anti-Trump demonstrations happening in California in the lead-up to the state’s primary.

He said that protesters who destroy property, including police vehicles, should be locked up, calling them “gangbangers” looking for an excuse to be rowdy and commit crimes.

But the behavior that perhaps bothered Arpaio the most was the burning and trampling of the American flag, which the sheriff called “disgusting” and “sad.”

“This is freedom of speech, but I don’t think the public likes this, especially when you burn an American flag. Made me very sad when I saw that occurred.”

While Arpaio is considered a strong force against illegal immigration, he said he has no issue with people waving Mexican flags at protests. It’s the abuse of the American flag that troubles him.

Of course, it should be no surprise to anyone that violent leftists have listened to President Obama’s rhetoric over the years. In fact, they’re just following orders from a man who has told his fellow liberals to “punish our enemies” and threatened that if conservatives “bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.”

Sheriff Arpaio has said that Trump is the only candidate that can fix the current illegal immigration problem in the United States.

“We have to have Donald Trump not give in, to do something about the problem,” Arpaio explained. “He’s our only savior right now.”
