Whenever the Black Lives Matter movement is in the news, Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke is always there to set the record straight.
Unlike many of the clueless talking heads in the media, Clarke actually realizes the consequences of BLM’s rhetoric – and how it’s good for no one, including blacks. After Micah Johnson carried out an attack on Dallas police that caused the largest loss of life of officers since 9/11, he wrote that “his was mission accomplished for Black Lives Matter, not an aberration.”
He was right.
The violence and hate-filled messages pouring out of BLM seek exactly this kind of bloody resolution, or revolution, though they cannot admit it in polite society. Even as celebrities and media talking heads clamor over themselves to demonstrate their allegiance to the hate group, they align themselves with one of the most destructive groups to the well-being and justice for black Americans that exist today. (On a side note, how ridiculous is it that supporting a hate group like BLM is what scores you brownie points among celebrities?)
Clarke acknowledges, like everyone whose looked at the statistics does, that the real problem facing the black community isn’t “racist police,” it’s gang violence. Most blacks are killed by other blacks, which isn’t exactly something we’d expect to see in a racist society. While it’s also true that most whites are killed by other whites, blacks kill other blacks at a rate five times higher than whites kill other whites.
As ChicksontheRight reports, Clarke recently appeared on Fox News to speak the truth about BLM.
“If they really took a look at what was going on around them, what they’d be railing against is not the police and the police use of force,” Sheriff Clarke said on “America’s Newsroom.” “Their biggest threat [is] criminal gangs, and it’s other black males who are involved in this crime and violence in numbers that are disproportionate to their numbers in the population.”
Why don’t we ever hear the truth from black leaders like Al Sharpton and Jessee Jackson? Because despite what they may know, they’re also aware that without victim hood, they don’t have careers.
