America’s Sheriffs Stand Up to Obamunism

Kudos to Sheriff David Clarke Jr., who understands that being a citizen of a free country entails rights and responsibilities, and that self-defense falls under both categories:

A sheriff who released a radio ad urging Milwaukee-area residents to learn to handle firearms so they can defend themselves while waiting for police said Friday that law enforcement cutbacks have changed the way police can respond to crime.

In the 30-second commercial, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke Jr. says personal safety is no longer a spectator sport.

“I need you in the game,” he says.

“With officers laid off and furloughed, simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option,” he adds. “You can beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide under the bed, or you can fight back. … Consider taking a certified safety course in handling a firearm so you can defend yourself until we get there.”

The ad has Milwaukee’s moonbat Mayor Tom Barrett screeching like a stuck pig. Several years ago, Barrett was worked over with a tire iron. As Clarke notes,

“A firearm and a plan of defense would have come in handy for him that day.”

Clarke isn’t the only local law enforcement official refusing to read out of the playbook provided by the federal government–liberal media axis. Like a majority of gun-owning citizens, many will defy unconstitutional restrictions on our right to bear arms, including the great Joe Arpaio, as well as many other American heroes like Tim Mueller and Robin Cole. As Implied Inference reports,

Over 90 Sheriffs, as well as the Sheriffs’ Associations in 2 states, have publicly spoken out against the Obama/Feinstein gun grab. Across the country, more and more state and local law enforcement organizations and individual LEO’s (Law Enforcement Officers) are saying, “WE WILL NOT COMPLY”.

This number has continued to rise.

Americans are waking up to the situation. The harder left-wing authoritarians push, the more resistance they will encounter.

    Can anyone here tell me why police officers carry guns?

    When seconds count, the police are MINUTES away!

  2. Tax Slave says:

    Milwaukee has always been a virtual suburb of CHICAGO!

  3. Tax Slave says:

    (Chicago is a racist code word)

  4. Thanks for the link! Added Moonbattery to the blogroll, and mentioned the backlink in the post.

    I saw the Sheriffs statement and he must be presenting the left with quite a dilemma. How do they demonize a member of one of their highly-protected groups? Yes, they’re trying, but even the leftist cretins on msnbc were tip-toeing around the subject. It’s fun to watch a black man tie them in knots.

  6. M.Wilson says:

    They’ll think of something, they had no problem demonizing Allen West and Sarah Palin, after all. In fact, they had no problem breaking out the racism and misogyny in either case.

    If the left didn’t have double standards they wouldn’t have standards at all.

  7. Scotty G. says:

    No, not really a dilemma for the left. If you oppose gun control it’s because the man in the White House is black… just like everything else.

  8. Hal Jordan says:

    The number of Sheriffs refusing to enforce unconstitutional gun laws is more than 127 as of almost a week ago.

    As a resident of Milwaukee County I applaud the ad released by Sheriff Clarke. But, I think there is more to it than meets the eye. Scott Walker ( now Gov. Walker) used to be the County Board Chairman. When he left to become Governor there was nothing to check the liberals on the county board. Of course, taxes went up and spending went up as liberals always do when they can. EXCEPT the Milwaukee County Sheriffs Dept budget got cut….because they don’t like Sheriff Clarke. So I think this was an “in your face” moment to the Milwaukee County Board.

  10. Tax Slave says:

    Joe Arpio came out of the closet, and the Left still hate him. Black conservatives like Herman Cain are all Uncle Toms. And Hispanics with white-sounding names like George Zimmerman are fair game to the Left.

  11. A.E.I.O.U. says:

    Dr. 9 says: “It’s fun to watch a black man tie them in knots.”

    Expect the MSM to describe Sheriff Clarke as a white African American.

  12. StanInTexas says:

    They won’t describe him as white. But will call him a “House (N-word)”, an “Uncle Tom”, say he is not really black, and for good measure call him a racist!

  13. Bill T says:

    Mayor Bloomingturd and his traveling Gestapo!

    Journalist harassed by NYPD protecting Mayor Bloomberg after asking him question on gun control

  14. Dave says:

    The good sheriff is no doubt a black white-supremacist made from the same mold as Clayton Bigsby.

  15. Flu-Bird says:

    Our own couty sheriff JON LOPEY here in SISKIYOU COUNTY here in the STATE OF JEFFERSON fermerly known as NORTHERN CALIFORNA,SOUTHERN OREGON sent a letter to JOE BIDEN supporting the U.S. CONSTITUTION and opposing any gun confiscation from DER FEHRER and his IMPERIAL STROM TROOPERS in the BATFE

    Is it patriotism or self preservation?

    Tax Slave says:

    Sheriff Joe is gay? says who?

    Does his wife, two kids, and four grandkids know what you know?

  18. Steve says:

    WOW! Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke: “You have a duty to protect yourself and your family”…

    Tax Slave may be thinking of Sheriff Paul Babeau of Pinal County, Arizona. He came out of the closet a year or so ago. He is actually a great sheriff and very well liked by conservatives in Arizona. You are right, Alphamail, Sheriff Joe is not gay.
