I chose Sheriff David Clarke of Milwaukee County as my VIP for this week because he is a man’s man. He was recently chosen as the “Man of the Year” by Front Page Magazine, a conservative publication. He is a Democrat and has run and been elected to office multiple times. He has spoken out numerous times about the anti-police rhetoric, particularly since the riots in Ferguson and Baltimore. He has also been quite harsh as a critic of Barack Obama and his administration.
Sheriff Clarke was recently on Fox News to discuss the shooting by a man who said he did it in the name of Islam. Sheriff Clarke is not afraid to state the facts as he sees them. Check out this site to find other statements by Sheriff Clarke such as this one: “These individuals should be charged with treason. They – if he’s an American citizen, he forfeits his citizenship. He should be charged as an enemy combatant, held at Gitmo and he should not have access to American courts; he should be tried in a military court, and if convicted, he should be executed.”
