David Clarke, a Trump-supporting former sheriff from Milwaukee best known for running a jail ripe with abuse, where four inmates, including a baby, died, is again swirling in controversy. Clarke was a key Trump advocate in 2016, later getting hired on for a cushy senior advisor gig at America First Action, a pro-Trump Super PAC where many of the Trump administration and Fox News castaways like Don Jr.’s girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, have landed high-paying jobs.

Clarke was fired from America First Action not long after Fox News banned him because of his increasingly outrageous rhetoric. Twitter once temporarily suspended Clarke after he advocated violence toward liberals.

Fired up and ready to go? Make national phone calls for Joe Biden, Kamala Harris & the whole Democratic ticket to voters in battleground states. With Victory2020, all you need is a personal computer & a quiet place at home to make these calls.

And now Clarke is again proving how unfit he ever was for the job of sheriff or political adviser. Clarke was guest-hosting The Mark Belling Show, a Milwaukee-based radio show on WISN, when he essentially advocated the premeditated murder of protesters, telling listeners to “make a plan.” Thanks to Media Matters for the audio and transcript.

DAVID CLARKE (GUEST HOST): The question is when is government going to do something? Inaction is not a plan. You know what happens with inaction? People take the law into their own hands. Government is leaving them no choice. No choice. I don’t advocate for some of the stuff that’s starting to happen, but I am certainly done — I am through with condemning it. I’m done with that.

I’m just telling people, “Hey, you’re on your own.” Think about it, have a plan. Act reasonably. You have to act reasonably. Then you’re going to have to articulate what you did afterwards. But you can’t have government officials and law enforcement executives telling people, “Do not take the law into your own hands.” Well, you’re forcing them to!

Clarke went even further:

DAVID CLARKE (GUEST HOST): The majority of these gun purchases are first-time gun owners. And when we leave this up to the individual, it’s not going to end real pretty. But I don’t blame them. Have a plan, think it through, be able to articulate it, and be reasonable. It’s all the law requires. You have the right to defend yourself, you don’t need permission from the police or a sheriff.

Just make a plan … to murder. In other words, premeditated murder. He once likened the Black Lives Matter movement to the KKK. Is it any wonder he was too extreme for even the Trump administration and Fox News?

I’m sick to death of these Uncle Toms, who still doesn’t know that the Emancipation Proclamation was signed. In the 60’s H Rap Brown and Panthers would have a field day with this house colored.

I expected moderation. To bad you don’t spend more time moderating some of this BS, inciting stories.
