Bloomberg Anti-Gun PAC Funds $150,000 Ad Campaign Against Vocal Black Conservative Sheriff David Clarke
Guest Post by Mara Zebest
Whenever conservatives object to the policies of a candidate, Liberals, supported by the Liberal media, cry out in unison that conservatives are racist. Well — what’s good for the goose is also good for the gander. Isn’t it about time that conservatives start pointing the race card finger back onto those Liberals who truly judge everything through the prism of skin color?
Now apply the same Liberal skin color prism spotlight on Bloomberg’s PAC—a PAC which is funding a $150,000 ad campaign targeting the defeat of a black constitutional Sheriff—in favor of replacing with a white Sheriff. Isn’t that racist? Where’s the media and Liberal outrage?
Bloomberg supported anti-gun candidate, Chris Moews (left) is attempting to defeat pro-constitutionalist Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke (right).
Many might remember David Clarke from a famous Public Safety Ad urging citizens to arm themselves in the battle against crime and thus partnering with the Sheriff’s office to help lower the crime rate. A strategy that has also proven to work in dropping crime rates for Detroit via armed citizens.
Below is David Clarke’s powerful speech at the 2014 NRA-ILA Leadership forum:
Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s political action committee, Independence USA, has purchased $150,833 in television ads in an effort to defeat Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. and support his opponent, Milwaukee police Lt. Chris Moews.
In response to the news of Bloomberg’s ads, Clarke said in a statement: “I trust the voters. The voters can’t be bought.”
The ad buys by Bloomberg’s PAC come on top of $400,000 in media ads purchased by the Greater Wisconsin Committee to try to beat Clarke, who is seeking his fourth term in Tuesday’s Democratic primary election.
Also on Friday, Citizens for Responsible Government — a local conservative group — paid for $55,238 in airtime on five Milwaukee-area stations to air TV spots supporting the sheriff.
Clarke has drawn strong support from the National Rifle Association, which has sent out a fundraising appeal asking for members to contribute.
“Make no mistake: Sheriff Clarke is fighting the re-election battle of his life right now because he dared to stand on principle by standing up for you, me and the NRA,” wrote Chris Cox, executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action.
Campaign finance reports show Clarke has received a large number of contributions from out of state.
There are no Republicans running, so the winner of Tuesday’s primary will likely be elected. Independent candidate Angela Walker is the only challenger on the November ballot.
Meanwhile another group, Citizens for Urban Justice, has purchased radio ads at three stations in support of Clarke. […]
Moews said it is “unreasonable and inappropriate” to link him to cases that may have cast the Milwaukee Police Department in a bad light, he said.
Bloomberg formed Independence USA to support local, state and federal candidates in races across the country in which gun laws, education policy and marriage equality are issues, according to its website.
On the website, Bloomberg says: “This new effort will support candidates and causes that will help protect Americans from the scourge of gun violence, improve our schools and advance our freedom.” […]
