Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke has had enough of the rioters in his town.
And now he is hitting back against the racially motivated violence roiled in his streets of Milwaukee.
Rioters have taken to burning buildings and attacking police after a black police officer shot 23-year-old Sylville Smith on Saturday.
During Sunday’s riots, Clarke took to social media and later to an op-ed in The Hill.
Sheriff Clarke is an African American and is hailed as a hero to many on the right. He has been one of the harshest, most vocal critics of the hateful, black supremacist group known as Black Lives Matter.
Even though Sylville Smith was shot and killed by a black police officer, Black Lives Matter rioters have made the charge that the killing was racially motivated.
Smith had a string of charges which dated back to 2011, including a shooting last year and intimidating a witness.
The gun Smith was brandishing was stolen, according to CNN, along with 500 rounds of ammunition.
In his op-ed, Clarke wrote a scathing condemnation of the “policies of liberal democrats” for the “misery-inducing, divisive, exploitative and racist manipulation of the urban populations.”
Clarke went on to call out the “pathetic, kowtowing city officials and alderman” for abandoning their citizens and preening “before the Black Lives Matter-enabling media.”
“What happened Saturday night and again Sunday night had little to do with police use of force — it was a collapse of the social order where tribal behavior leads to reacting to circumstances instead of waiting for facts to emerge,” Clarke wrote.
Earlier in the week, reports surfaced of white people being targeted in Milwaukee.
In fact, Tim Poole, a prominent award-winning reporter had a message for whites in Milwaukee: “Leave.”
“For those that are perceived white, it is just not safe to be here… that’s why I’m deciding to leave.”
Poole also admitted he became frightened for his personal safety after seeing an 18-year-old white kid get “shot in the neck.”
More from Clark from The Hill:
“Here are the facts: Milwaukee is run by progressive Democrats. Their decades-long Democrat regime has done nothing to reduce these urban pathologies, in fact, their strategies have exacerbated the situation by expanding the welfare state.
That things have not improved and in fact worsened in the American ghetto after eight years of Barack Obama is remarkable only to those who have not been paying attention to our nation’s cities.
There’s only one answer, which is for the citizens of America to expose and heap scorn on this lying and dangerous triad of big government, liberal mainstream media, and the lost souls of the urban ghettos both these institutions feed upon for their power.
A self-examination and self-criticism by the underclass is in order as well – as is an admission by Progressive Democrats that they have failed Milwaukee would be the first step in reversing this urban decay and reversing the growth of the underclass and their accompanying cultural rot.”
Whether you agree with Sheriff Clarke or not, he’s proven to be able to take on not only Black Lives Matter rioters, but the mainstream media who enables them.
