Democrat leaders in Missouri, like Governor Jay Nixon and Senator Claire McCaskill, are taking a lot of heat locally for their impotency in dealing with the Ferguson fiasco. They aren’t the only ones taking blame for what is going on, though. Once Attorney General Eric Holder insinuated himself into an already volatile situation that didn’t seem to have anything to do with the Justice Department, the nation turned attentively to his every Missouri move. When, after the scantest of time spent on the ground, AG Holder seemed to insinuate malice on the part of police, and the entire nation witnessed it.
That has led many in the first responder community around the country to question whether or not they truly have the support of their leaders in government. It seems that Democrats have turned on our police and characterized police departments across the country in a sweeping (and evil) manner.
Now some are demanding an apology. Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is a Democrat who has become famous and beloved by conservatives for his strong defense of the 2nd Amendment and the right of every citizen to defend themselves when in danger. Now he’s taking on the liberal attitude that America’s police are corrupt.
He’s naming names and demanding apologies.
“I think that some of the officials in Missouri like Governor Nixon, Senator McCaskill, and even the Attorney General of the United States made some irresponsible, inflammatory statements during this time which didn’t help the situation, insinuating that our law enforcement officers across the United States engage in some nefarious or systematic and cultural attempts to violate people’s civil rights. I thought that was a slap in the face to every law enforcement officer in America who puts on, you know he and she that put on the badge and the uniform every day to go out and risk their lives in service to their community. I think the Attorney General needs to further explain his anecdotal references to being racially profiled as if officers across America do this thing and I think he owes every law enforcement officer in America an apology. He doesn’t owe me an apology but the men and women that I know of that go out and serve their community do not have that kind of maliciousness in their hearts. And I thought that that was a poor display in terms of leadership and adding hot sauce to this volatile situation as well.
Boy, he’s fun to watch.
