Sheriff Clarke took on CNN host Don Lemon and the Black Lives Matter movement and literally OBLITERATED Lemon, leaving him speechless and stuttering!
“You don’t believe that for one minute, do you?”, Clark responded when Lemon stated that the Cleveland Law Enforcement had a message of “peace and coming together in the country.”
“Any protests over the deaths of these cops today in Baton Rouge?” Sheriff Clarke went on, to get a quiet answer of, “I don’t know that…” from Lemon.
“Any riots or protests over the police officers in Dallas, Texas?” Clarke continues hammering, revoking dead air momentarily, ending with the even quieter response, “What are you asking?”
“It’s a pretty simple question.” Sheriff Clarke responded!
It was classic!!! It was “Deer in the headlights from Lemon as he obviously was looking for a way off the road!
Then Lemon handed Sheriff Clarke the question that gave him the knock-out: “What is your message?”
Lemon responded, “I asked you if, what’s your message to the people? Their message is one of peace. What is your message?”
“My message has been clear from day one two years ago. This anti-cop sentiment from this hateful ideology called Black Lives Matter has fueled this rage against the American police officer. I predicted this two years ago.”
Lemon tried to counter: “With all due respect, do you know that this was because of that? As a law enforcement officer?”
“Yes, I do,” Clarke said firmly, “I’ve been watching this for two years. I predicted this. This anti-police rhetoric sweeping the country has turned out some hateful things inside of people that are now playing themselves out on the American police officer.”
Lemon, unable to combat Sheriff Clarke’s firm grasp, called for civility in the discussion, giving Clarke another opening for a grand slam!
“Don, I wish you had that message of civility toward this hateful ideology, these purveyors of hate. That’s what they do. These people preach bile and virtue in the name of hate.”
The exchange continued on with Lemon looking a fool until he cut the Sheriff off and throwing to a break to avoid any further humiliation.
After the break, Sheriff Clark continued to obliterate Lemon. You will want to watch both videos! Don’t miss it!!
Lemon opens up after the break mentioning that they cannot talk at the same time…after spending the first segment interrupting Clarke when he did not like his answers. Priceless!
