Sheriff Who Called BLM Terrorists to Take Homeland Security Job

Sheriff David Clarke made the announcement on a radio show, but DHS said that “no such announcement” has been made yet.

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke revealed Wednesday that he has officially hopped on the Trump train — but officials say the announcement may have been premature.

Clarke told a Milwaukee radio station he will be taking a senior position with the Department of Homeland Security.

“I’m both honored and humbled to be appointed to this position,” Clarke said.

The announcement may have been premature, however, DHS implied on Twitter.

DHS Assistant Secretary for Intergovernmental Affairs Phil McNamara, who Clarke will be succeeding, questioned his replacement’s capabilities on Twitter.

Clarke traveled to Russia in 2015, along with leaders from the National Rifle Association, to meet with Russian leaders. The trip was reportedly funded in part by a Russian gun rights group.

Clarke will reportedly start his new position in June, a spokesman for the sheriff told The Washington Post.

“Basically he’ll be the liaison between DHS and different types of law enforcement,” said spokesman Craig Peterson.

Clarke is no stranger to controversy. Most recently Clarke has made headlines because one of his Milwaukee County prisons is at the center of an investigation involving the death of a mentally ill Black man.

Terrill Thomas, 38, was found unresponsive in Milwaukee County Jail last April after seven days without water. His death was ruled a homicide. A jury recommended criminal charges be filed against seven of the jail’s staff members, but Clarke was not among them.

Investigation Opens into Black Mentally Ill Man Found Dead in Jail Cell

Terrill Thomas was found dead in his cell — at a jail run by conservative Sheriff David Clarke — after seven days without water.

Clarke is also known for his comments on Black Lives Matter, which he has linked to ISIS and described as a terrorism movement.

In his memoir Clarke says BLM does not “care about black lives. They care about their own radical ideology of terrorism: anarchy.”

“In the five days surrounding the Dallas shooting — which was the worst police massacre since 9/11, by the way — there was even more Black LIES Matter-inspired violence (four attacks on police are listed)….Let me guess. You’d never heard of these incidents. That’s because the media protect and lie about this insidious terror organization,” he also wrote.

In 2015 he tweeted that BLM will inevitably “join forces with ISIS.”

And he wrote a 2016 blog post featured on The Hill called “This is a war, and Black Lives Matter is the enemy.” Excerpts from his post include:

 “We as a people need to declare that we stand with rule of law, and not with the false tales of the revolutionary Marxist forces, who most recently have rebranded themselves from Occupy Wall Street to Black Lives Matter.”

“Black Lives Matter organizers hold the same values of America’s age-old enemies, who have always fought the ideals of our Constitution and our nation. That they have now taken on as their costume a false concern for Black America only adds to their depravity.”

“We have several forces internal and external attacking our rule of law: ISIS, Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street – just the most recent iterations of the elements who brand themselves as unique but seek the same revolutionary aim: take down the West, the philosophy of equality before the law, and replace it with their authority, their rules, their hate.”

Earlier this year, Clarke called for the imprisonment of mayor of sanctuary cities.

“I’m telling you right now folks: You charge one mayor, one governor, one council president … this stuff is going to end right away,” he said at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

“You charge one mayor, one governor, one council president … this stuff is going to end right away.”

Around the same time, he also took to Facebook to perpetuate Trump’s false narrative that immigrants are more likely than native-born citizens to be criminals.

“It is time for this pro-illegal immigration group to embrace the rule of law in this country as it relates to immigration,” he posted. “Criminal illegal aliens make Milwaukee County a dangerous place to live, work and play.”

A 2015 study by the American Immigration Council found that not only are immigrants less likely to commit serious crimes or be incarcerated than native-born residents, but high rates of immigration correlate with even lower rates of violent and property crimes.

As summed up by The Root, “Clarke skyrocketed to fame as the black dude Fox News calls whenever it wants to denigrate a black person who is killed by the police.”

Sheriff Calls Black Lives Matter Protesters ‘Sub-Human Creeps’

On Fox & Friends, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke denies police brutality exists.

On one appearance on “Fox & Friends” he referred to BLM members as “sub-human creeps.”

During the 2015 segment Clarke said, “There is no police brutality in America — we ended that in the ’60s.”

Speaking about BLM and anti-police protesters, Clarke suggested the protesters should “fend for themselves” and officers should stop protecting them during demonstrations so people in the community and business owners “could clash with them for disrupting their lives.” He continued, “Then the police can show up and arrest these sub-human creeps for creating a disturbance. That we can do.”

    Like all decent Milwaukeeans, I apologize to the rest of the world for this man’s continuing presence in office. Wisconsin’s long tradition of open primaries means that Clarke has been given the Democratic ballot slot for election and re-election by corrupt Republicans voting in the Democratic primary to re-nominate him, even though he is repugnant to everything actual Milwaukee County Democrats (of all colors) stand for. I’m waiting to see whether he actually resigns his office, or if it will turn out to be some kind of Byzantine head-fake strategic maneuver either on his own initiative or on the part of the Trump cabal.

      MICHAEL LOWERY–You have nothing to apologize for! Unfortunately, good people do not always get into
      the highest political offices, or the most strategic ones to do the most good.

      Sheriff Clarke’s days are numbered, and his Trademark White Cowboy Hat will not save him from the
      wrath of Frosty the Pharoah and His Icebox Icicles. All those corrupt Republicans will not be able to
      save even Frosty the Pharoah, whose treasonous antics–along with his Borgia-Brats “Barbie and Ken”–
      will earn him the I-word–IMPEACHMENT–and this simple phrase: “LOCK HIM UP!”

      • I grew up in Milwaukee County and the brutality by brutal Nazi KKKops makes Rodney King look like child’s play. Milwaukee, like most perverted small towns are good places for pedophiles to hide.

        Milwaukee is filled with cheesehead wannabes like Clarke, Scott Walker, and Paul Ryan who are dumb, ignorant, white supremacist racists. Clarke and Clarence ThomAss prove that you don’t have to be white to be a white supremacist. Regurgitating conservative racist vomit or marrying white women is how they suck-seed by pimping.

        Only delusional, petty, small-minded hyenas like Clarke and Ryan could live in an ancient icebox like Milwaukee, frozen in CroMagnon time, and love it. His premature announcement reflects his lack of sophistication. White people LOVE low-class ni@@ers like Clarke and ThomAss; they only dream that these black Uncle Toms could be right– they would seem less wicked and evil.

    • This man is truly insane—talk about power gone to someone’s head! We’re talking about a man who had another man taken to a room and questioned by six deputies, simply because Clarke claimed he “feared for his life” from the other man. The man in question ( a young white guy) says he merely asked Clark a question, such as “Are you Sheriff Clark?” Clark said yeah, the guy shook his head, and that was all that happened. Yet,soon as he got off the plane, he was suddenly accosted by said deputies. He sued Clark for harrassment:

      I also seriously doubt if he’s been tapped for position with trumpf—only in his delusional mind would that happen. Trumpf dosen’t want anybody around him that won’t immediately kowtow to him, and acknowledge his so-called greatness.

    • He should fit in with the rest of the people in then administration. The truly unqualified, he should fit in nicely. And he should be grateful when “Master” gives him a piece of pie. He is not sighted enough to think what happens when his Buddy leaves office. I doubt they take care of the brown people when the corruption is exposed……he is being played

  • Charity–Like murderous billionaire DuPont, in AmeriKKKa, they don’t lock up billionaires. It’s called white, rich man’s justice. They get away with murder, rape, theft, pedophilia, treason and mayhem. It’s the Hitler standard of review. Trump is white folKKKs Great White Hope and MESSiah.

      ZAZIJAMS–Frosty The Pharoah and the Icicle Cabinet are already doomed and destined for an Epic Meltdown! :-)
      Comey & Company are ready to sing like Andrea Bocelli–and we’re just seeing the proverbial tip of the proverbial
      iceberg of scandal! :-) They always say “follow the money;” and the money trail leads to Moscow and the Muscovite
      Mafia. Frosty owes 1.5 $billion$ in debt, including all those Satanic Syndicates he and Donald, Jr. courted in Russia.
      But the Muscovite Mafiosi never take “no” for an answer, and The Frosty will discover that the Moscow Mob is
      more vicious than any prison inmate.

      His Orange Dumpness has run to Saudi Arabia, so that Junior-Brat Borgia (The Ken Doll) can negotiate that
      $100 million arms deal with Saudi Arabia. But Barbie has no skills to use in Saudi Arabia, because she ain’t got
      no adequate edu-ma-cation past that bachelor’s degree in economics. It turns out that fashion shoots and
      half-clad sexy poses do not equal skills in diplomacy, foreign languages or international affairs.
