Testify, Brother Clarke, testify!:
"War has been declared" on police officers in the United States, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke said this weekend, and he blames that on Barack Obama and the U.S. Department of Justice.
"I'm too pissed tonight to be diplomatic about what's going on," the sheriff told Fox News' Judge Jeanine Pirro on her Justice With Judge Jeanine program Saturday night, just hours after a Houston-area deputy sheriff was murdered while putting gasoline in his police cruiser....
Clarke said he'd pointed out said last December that war had been declared on the country's police departments by Obama and former Attorney General Eric Holder, and now, he thinks "it's open season."
Quite so. And Sheriff Clarke's cathartic ire wasn't limited to The One and Eric "The Red," either:
The African-American sheriff said he's also tired of hearing people involved in police protests labeled as "black activists," as "they're not activists. This is black slime and it needs to be eradicated from American society."...
He said he's renamed the "Black Lives Matter" movement to "Black Lies," because it's "all based on a lie" based on the Ferguson shootings.
I dubbed them part of the "Black Klan" a long time ago, but "Black Slime" and "Black Lies" works. And since Sheriff Clarke has the "ethnic authenticity" your pasty white pundit lacks, I by all means defer to the guardian of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin.
For however much longer he lives until he meets Darren Goforth's fate, anyway.
UPDATE: This is rapidly becoming a coast-to-coast local law enforcement rebellion:
The Black Lives Matter movement is a "reincarnation" of the Black Panther Party and Black Liberation Army whose "anti-cop rhetoric" and "domestic terrorism" is causing attacks like the cold-blooded murder of a Texas sheriff's deputy, New York Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik charges.
In an interview on Newsmax TV Monday with The Hard Line host Ed Berliner, Kerik, author of From Jailer to Jailed, said, "I see them as domestic terrorists – I don't see any difference in what they're doing and what they're calling for than what the Black Liberation Army and the Black Panther Party was in the '60s and '70s."
"It's the same rhetoric, it's the same language. It's all the same," he said. "And then you have somebody go out and basically assassinates a cop – if the reports are right, more than a dozen rounds put into this cop in Texas. This is insane."
Indubitably. It is all the same. The difference being that back in the sixties and seventies, the Black Panthers and Black Liberation Army didn't have one of their own in the White House.
Time until The One has another of his patented "racial fireside chat" pressers: By the end of the week at the latest. Which is time enough for many more prominent law enforcement figures to "act stupidly" by speaking the truth to power.
