America’s favorite Sheriff, Milwaukee County’s David Clarke, has had enough of the media pushing the narrative that Black Lives Matter is “just a peaceful protest movement.”
In the wake of the mass shootings of police officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge, how can anyone possibly make such a statement?
Yet, CNN’s Don Lemon pushed that line in an interview with Clarke. He probably should have thought twice.
Watch the explosive exchange below, which begins with Lemon pushing the notion that BLM is peaceful and Clarke scoffing at him:
Lemon was turned into a mumbling mess.
Clarke continued …
Sheriff Clarke: My message has been clear from day one two years ago. This anti-cop sentiment from this hateful ideology called Black Lives Matter has fueled this rage against the American police officer. I predicted this two years ago.
Don Lemon: With all due respect, do you know that this was because of that?
Sheriff Clarke: Yes I do. I’ve been watching this for two years. I predicted this. 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.
Lemon then asked Clarke to keep his voice down. Big mistake.
“I’m looking at three dead cops this week, and I’m looking at five dead last week, and you’re trying to tell me to keep it down?” Clarke charged.
Lemon ran scared, cutting the interview short.
We should all stand up and applaud Sheriff Clarke for shutting down this left wing media lie that Black Lives Matter is a ‘peaceful’ organization.
Thank you Sheriff!
