So who is this man? I have been seeing him on some news shows and he was a panelist testifying at a Congressional Hearing a couple of weeks ago. I was immediately fascinated by his candor and common sense. He has been a breath of fresh air as I am sick of hearing the racial grievance industrial mouthpieces spew their crapola. This man runs a big, racially diverse county sheriff's department in Wisconsin. Though he sounds like a conservative Republican he is not "party" affiliated except for ballot purposes.
"Clarke has been elected three times to the Sheriff's office as a
Democrat, despite not belonging to any party. This has spurred criticism
from the local Democratic Party.
Clarke explains his choice to run as a Democrat thusly on his website:
"Like me, most people question why the Office of Sheriff is a
partisan election. I have never asked a person to vote for me because I
run as a Democrat. I ask them to vote for me based on my 35-year
commitment to keeping citizens safe. Most voters get it when it comes to
public safety. There is no Democrat or Republican way to be a sheriff.
The enemy is not the opposing party; the enemy is the criminal."
As a participant on the Congressional Committee, Clarke said this; (from a Politico story)
“Let’s leave that [police] conduct for the public to engage in, not …
elected officials who can’t resist the opportunity to exploit the
emotions of an uninformed or misinformed public simply for political
gain,” Clarke said, before suggesting the root of current problems is
“black underclass subculture behavior” that has little to do with police
Here is a Breitbart article on Clark's view of the "police" issues of today.
The following are some more links to this Sheriff. He is also a "Constitutional" Sheriff as well.
The left and the democrats of Wisconsin have consistently tried to defeat him in every election since his appointment in the early 2000's. His primary foe is usually close but during the General Election he wins huge. My guess is the Republicans vote for him in huge numbers. They appreciate his "get tough" with the criminals approach. I would like to see this man in higher office where he can bring his common sense and boot out out all the mamby-pamby liberal crapola that is infecting our country. Liberals are now attacking the police all across America. I think it is a concerted effort to undermine the country. We must support people like Clark and reject liberal dogma.
Now the liberals are trying to make people believe their is such a thing in America as "mass incarceration"! For goodness sakes, if you do the crime then be prepared to do the time. If you want to stay free and on the streets, don't become a criminal! But liberals think they have a winner with this BS. I think America is much smarter than these libs think. The crime rates are down because the police have arrested and the courts convicted, criminals. Not because they are some racial color but because they are crooks. The poor and helpless these criminals were feeding on, killing and robbing, are grateful they are in the clink. Perhaps the "panels" of these liberals should include a few "survivors" of those bums who robbed, raped and murdered them.
Sheriff Clark is a great role model for everyone. He is eloquent in his speech and exudes confidence in his beliefs. If the inner city communities would have him come speak rather than Al Sharpton and his followers, America minorities would do much better and be more positive about this great country.
