Sheriff Clark: After Obama, We’re Going To Need A “Period Of Reconstruction To Put The Country Back Together”

Milwaukee Sheriff David Clark joined Megyn Kelly, Thursday night to discuss a new Fox poll that shows that 62% of voters believe race relations have gotten worse since Barack Obama became president.

Kelly asked the the clear-eyed, straight talking sheriff, “are they right?”

“Of course they’re right,” Clark answered without hesitation. “He built that…..remember that statement, ‘you didn’t build that’? Well, he built this racial divide, it was a wound that had been healing for a number of years – number of decades – and he reopened it with his divisive politics.”

He continued, “Obama has benefited from the divide and conquer strategy – it secured two successive electoral victories for the White House but it’s been very destructive for America.” He went on to ask a devastating question,  Who would have thought that after the election of first black president in the history of United States, that we would need a period of reconstruction to try to put this country back together?”

Clark claimed that instead of taking a neutral tone, Obama has habitually fanned the flames.

Megyn gave Clark an opportunity to give Obama a pass and put most of the blame on people with whom he surrounds himself, but Clark was having none of it.

“It’s a cabal of people,” he acknowledged.  “But he’s at the top. When the president speaks, people listen and he has to choose his words carefully.”

Megyn, playing devils advocate,  noted that Obama often acknowledges the sacrifices made by police.

Clark countered by saying that Obama likes to “throw a few bones out there” for law enforcement with “a wink and a nod” to the racial agitators. “People know what he’s doing,” the Sheriff declared.

Clark went on to challenge Eric Holder to a discussion on race, referring to the Attorney General’s infamous assertion that we’re “a nation of cowards” when it comes to race. “Well I’m not, and I’m ready to engage him in that conversation,” he said bluntly.

He ended with these healing words – words that the president should be saying:

“We have to ask when white society is going to be through paying for the sins of slavery. We’re now punishing people for sins that they didn’t commit. At some point – and I’ve done thins with myself – I’ve stamped that bill, marked for the wrongs of slavery, paid in full. This country’s now open for opportunities for all people.”

  1. I’m all in for reconstruction after Barry, but how on earth will that happen if we get another evil wretch like Hillary as the next POTUS, or someone so weak that to even publicly acknowledge Barry created racial problems is somehow racist, like Romney?
