It is still unknown why someone shot and killed Deputy Sheriff Darren Goforth as he was pumping gas but the suspect in custody is African American, Goforth was white and that’s all the excuse Fox News needs to blame #BlackLivesMatter and go on a hate spree against the group.
On Saturday, Fox’s favorite black (racist) sheriff, David Clarke, used the murder to declare #BlackLivesMatter is “black slime” that “needs to be eradicated from American society.” Apparently, Fox News loved Clarke’s hate mongering so much, they had him back to repeat it on Fox & Friends this morning.
As the lower-third blared “MURDER MOVEMENT” AND “SHERIFF: #BLACKLIVESMATTER IS OUT OF CONTROL,” Clarke let forth another stream of bigoted animosity:
CLARKE: First of all, the headline is black man shoots white, defenseless police officer. ‘Cause I get sick and tired when it’s the other way around, when an officer defends his life, they always point out that it’s a white officer shooting an unarmed black suspect.
…President Obama has breathed life into this ugly movement and it is time now for good law-abiding Americans to rise up like they did in Houston around that Chevron station (where Goforth was shot).
…It can’t just be symbolic. We now have to counter this slime, this filth, coming out of these cop haters.
…If there’s anything that needs to be straightened out in this country, it is the subculture that has risen out of the underclass in the American ghetto. Fix the ghetto and then you’ll see a lesser need for assertive police officers or policing in these areas.
Believe it or not, Clarke went on to say something of import. He talked about how understaffed his agency is.
CLARKE: What we’re beleaguered by is the fact that we don’t have any support from the political class. We don’t have the resources. Most of these agencies – I know mine is – I’m 150 deputies short. The City of Milwaukee Police Department is about 300 police officers short. So they send the law enforcement officer into these untenable, impossible environments and they ask ‘em to work miracles and it just doesn’t work like that.
It would be great if there could be some kind of real dialogue about the stresses law enforcement officials are under along with concerns of the community. But instead of exploring that subject, host Brian Kilmeade remained silent and Clarke went back to politicizing.
CLARKE: The problem isn’t the American police officer. Barack Obama won’t admit that these failed liberal, urban policies have destroyed these great cities.
Clarke is booked to be on Hannity tonight.

First we blame blacks for killing blacks and tell them to clean up their own mess. White conservatives can’t be bothered. We’re too busy boasting American exceptionalism.
Second we blame economic malaise on the welfare culture of dependency. Forget lifetime limits, facts don’t matter as long as I get my tax cut quick as a bunny by immediately ceasing all social spending. Not to be confused with the Social Security checks the majority of Fox News viewers get and earned.
Social Darwinism always looks grand when you’re arrogant thus assume you’ll end up on top! 👍
