Fox News' Favorite Black Sheriff Derides Eric Holder Again

Fox News has a handful of black opponents of the Attorney General who are offended that Eric Holder dares to charge the Ferguson P.D. with racial discrimination.

The sheriff of Milwaukee County, David Clarke, is a regular guest on Fox News who fulfills the much-needed niche of Eric Holder-bashing. He speaks with disdain and racial animus towards the President and Attorney General. Clarke is a Tea Party Republican through and through, even though he claims to be a Democrat,

he goes to Tea Party rallies and uses taxpayer money to tell people to buy guns and not to call him to fight crime.

Only in America will you hear praise for a police officer who advises citizens to buy more guns and take matters of the law into their own hands.

Never have we heard such unprecedented disrespect towards a president and/or an attorney general until Barack Obama and Eric Holder occupied these prestigious offices. Sheriff Clarke, regarding this recent filing by the D.O.J., said,"That's typical politics with this Attorney General...we can't see this guy out the door soon enough." He laments the "meddling" by the federal government when (he believes) there's no problems with any racial misconduct by a single police department nationwide. He claims Ferguson is no different than Milwaukee, which he believes is untarnished when it comes to matters of race, even if that claim is not based in reality.

Clarke is a man who believes that absentee black fathers are the sole cause of problems in the black community and this is ample justification for the brutal murders of black teenagers.

Ron Davis, father of the slain Florida teenager Jordan Davis, was an amazing dad. Tracy Martin, father of another slain Florida teenager, Trayvon Martin, was as close with his son as a father could be. Mike Brown, Sr., father of slain Missouri teenager Mike Brown, was not an absentee father. In fact, weeks before his death, Mike Jr. served as best man in the wedding of Mike Sr.

The cavalcade of self-loathing at Fox News experts exhibits such foolishness when they attempt to ascertain that there is no racism in American Law Enforcement. Eric Holder is absolutely justified in pursuing this matter. When White Supremacy groups have confirmed alliances with members of the law enforcement community, we have a problem that cannot be ignored.
