Barb Wire

Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and Holly Meade, and BarbWire’s Matt Barber… An 11-minute weekday radio program discussing hot topics in the area of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and the family.

The Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke is blaming what he calls the Progressive Left for the riots that are occurring in his state. We’re going to be talking about it and also George Soros and what he’s doing to create disruption and upheaval in our country. Chaos for these people seems to be the operative word for radical social change.

Mat Staver: Now for those of outside of Wisconsin who may not know who Milwaukee County Sheriff is, David Clarke, he is an African American, a black Democrat. He’s known for his strong, pro-gun views, and his opposition to Black Lives Matter. He recently had some very sharp words, he blamed what he called the Progressive Left, as well as “cow-towing city officials” for creating an atmosphere in which the riots could flourish in his state. He penned an op-ed for The Hill that was excerpted by the Washington Times.

He said, “As Sheriff of Milwaukee County, I am furious that the progressive left has put my citizens in harm’s way and that I had to send my officers into cauldrons of anarchy and hatred that were created by the left. As an elected public servant I am livid that Milwaukee’s pathetic, kowtowing city officials and aldermen take this opportunity to abandon their citizens and preen before the Black Lives Matter-enabling media.”
