Whoa. Also, Wow.
Count Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke among those who does not appreciate the Black Lives Matter movement. Sheriff Clarke was a guest on Fox News’ Monday morning broadcast of Fox Friends discussing the Black Lives Matter movement in America when he made a very provocative statement that no doubt caused fits among the perpetually offended members of America’s left.
Sheriff Clarke wondered why “police even bother policing those demonstrations. They’re not protests. Those people advocate for the overthrow of our legally constituted government.”
When host Brian Kilmeade pointed out that President Obama seemed to be on the side of the protesters, Sheriff Clarke made it clear how he felt about the protests.
“What I would do is let them fend for themselves. Let the good law abiding people of New York clash with them for disrupting their lives, disrupting their businesses. Then the police can show up and arrest these sub-human creeps for creating a disturbance.”
Clarke also made some noteworthy comments on the “problem” of police brutality in America today.
“There is no police brutality in America. We ended that back in the sixties. So I don’t know where they’re coming from. You look at the data and the research, and there’s a new Harvard study out that shows that there is no racism in the hearts of police officers. They go about their daily duty, if you will, to keep communities safe.”
The president of the United States knows better.He’s playing the race game. He’s playing race politics. Shame on him. He’s been very divisive for this country. He has been a nightmare, and I cannot wait until January 2017 so that America’s nightmare can be over.”
Kilmeade also asked Sheriff Clarke if he thought that perhaps Black Lives Matter was playing an important role in the national conversation on race and justice.
“No, it’s garbage. It’s a subversive movement. Like I said, they advocate the overthrow of our legally constituted government. It is not a protest movement.”
With straight talk like that, it’s no wonder that Sheriff Clarke has become wildly popular among millions of conservative and heartland Americans. Keep telling it like it is Sheriff Clarke!
