While appearing on Monday’s edition of Fox News’ “Hannity,” Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke called on Attorney General Loretta Lynch to send the FBI and Civil Rights attorneys to investigate the violence that took place after a Donald Trump rally in San Jose, California.
According to Sheriff Clarke, the violence employed against Trump supporters is the same as that used in the Jim Crow South to frighten and intimidate blacks from voting.
Moreover, he told Hannity the violence was “premeditated” and “organized.”
“Well, this is premeditated organized violence and these are riot-makers that show up at these events,” he said, according to a post at the Gateway Pundit. “What the mayor said was obviously ridiculous. But, Sean what I’m ticked off about right now is why Attorney General Loretta Lynch has not dispatched the FBI and dispatched lawyers from the Civil Rights Division to investigate and prosecute and identify people who are using the same type of tactics that were used in the Jim Crow south to frighten and intimidate blacks from participating in the voting process.”
“That’s why this is done to strike fear and intimidation in the hearts of these people who want to come and hear the candidate of their choice,” he added. “This is constitutionally protected. This is a Civil Rights violation and they are entitled to that same equal rights protection under the law as anybody else or any of the other protected class. It appears to me that the United States Department of Justice doesn’t care what happening because these people are white and they’re Trump supporters.”
Here’s video of his comments:
As we reported, the local police said they were concerned that protecting Trump supporters might inflame the violent socialist mob.
Meanwhile, liberal Democrats continue to justify the violence, blaming Trump.
