Conservatives love Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke for several reasons, and his recent no-holds-barred interview had them all.
In a sit-down with CNN host Don Lemon, Clarke held nothing back when Lemon tried to open the segment with a statement that he had spoken with police and sheriff departments in the Baton Rouge are and theirs was a passage of peace.
“You don’t believe that for one minute, do you?” Clarke said, referring to Lemon’s liberal positions on police confrontations.
Lemon was taken aback by Clarke’s remark and said that he did believe them, but not before he embarrassed himself with a rather long and dimwitted delay.
Clarke instantly turned the interview around and started asking Lemon if there had been any protests over the deaths of the cops on Baton Rouge or Dallas.
Lemon avoided the question and asked Clarke what his message to America was about the violence against police.
Clarke said the following.
“This anti-cop sentiment from this hateful ideology called Black Lives Matter has fueled this rage against the American police officer,” Clarke said.
“I’ve been watching this for two years. I’ve predicted this,” Clarke said.
“This anti-police rhetoric sweeping the country has turned out some hateful things inside of people that are now playing themselves out on the American police officer.”
Clarke blamed the Black Lives Matter movement for encouraging violent crimes against law enforcement officers, and said members of the group were “purveyors of hate.”
Clarke argued that the movement’s ideology was false, claiming there is no data that proves law enforcement treats black males more aggressively than whites.
