Fox’s Favorite Sheriff Endorses ‘Shoot First Then Ask Questions’ About African Americans
September 2, 2015

It looks like Fox’s favorite black-hating African American sheriff, David Clarke, meant it literally when he called for the “eradication” of #BlackLivesMatter

Clarke has been all over Fox News for blaming #BlackLivesMatter for the murder of a white deputy sheriff by a black man in Texas. Even though the motive is still unknown. On Saturday night, Clarke said #BlackLivesMatter is “black slime” that “needs to be eradicated from American society.”

Yesterday, Clarke was on Fox & Friends and Hannity in order to repeat his message of bigoted hate.

Even so, I was surprised to find this tweet in his Twitter feed. It's a retweet from someone saying, "I say shoot first then ask questions!!" in reference to #BlackLivesMatter.

The tweet is disturbing on its face. But while Fox keeps citing a chant about killing cops as “proof” that #BlackLivesMatter is out to kill cops, I’ll bet they ignore this very explicit endorsement of killing African Americans.
