Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is not letting up in his fight to expose Black Lives Matter activists as a race baiting movement intent on creating more division and segregation.
In an appearance on CNN Monday night, Clarke called out lefty journalist Marc Lamont Hill, arguing that BLM activists are directly tied to the brutal murder of Harris County, TX deputy Darren Goforth on Friday.
“I think very fair in light of the anti-cop rhetoric that is sweeping the United States of America, fueled by this group, some of the vulgar, vile, vicious rhetoric coming out talking about killing cops.” Clarke urged.
“That’s some of the nice stuff. Some of the stuff I can’t even say here on TV. But there’s no doubt in my mind that the two New York officers, [Rafael] Ramos and [Wenjian] Liu, were gunned down by an individual who made Facebook postings about wanting to kill pigs. And he was going to go out and hunt officers down.” Clarke added.
“There have been officers across the United States who had their cruisers shot at and struck while they patrolled in St. Louis — the same thing.” The Sheriff continued.
“This is part of a pattern. You would have to stick your head in the sand to think this wasn’t fueled by this vile, vulgar, slimy movement.” Clarke added, referring to Black Lives Matter.
Hill counter argued that an investigation was needed before the killing was linked to anti-police rhetoric coming from Black Lives Matter groups.
“The argument of black lives matter is not to say that police officers should be killed, that police officers should be demonized, that police officers should be marginalized.” Hill said.
Hill essentially argues the same point as other BLM activists who have stated that inflammatory rhetoric such as chanting “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon,” as many did at a Minnesota rally this past weekend, is not a call for violence against police.
The execution of deputy Goforth came just two weeks after armed Black Panther membersmarched in Houston, taunting cops by shouting “You’re gonna stop doing what you’re doing, or we will start creeping up on you in the darkness.”
Sheriff Clarke has argued that it is now “open season” on police in the US, and blames President Obama and former Attorney General Eric Holder for laying the groundwork by supporting ‘activists’ who have disparaged law enforcement based upon a set of lies.
