Wisconsin Sheriff David Clarke hit back against claims from the Hillary Clinton campaign that Donald Trump is “racist,” offering something of a history lesson on what he said is a long history of “racism” within the Democratic Party.
Appearing on “Fox and Friends Weekend” on Saturday, Clarke said Clinton is the recipient of Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Award, named after the group’s founder.
“She was a eugenist who supported the extermination of the black race — she called the black race a 'weed.' [Clinton] embraces that award, she embraces and is supportive of an organization...that kills more black babies than any other race,” the sheriff said.
He continued, “This is a party, the Democrat Party, that stood in the way of the Civil Rights Act in 1964, that stood in the way of Lincoln trying to free the slaves, that embraced and endorsed and voted for Sen. Robert Byrd, a former klansman, they welcomed him into the party as they did George Wallace.”
Because of the party’s history, Clarke said he’s “not going to sit up here and be lectured by Mrs. Bill Clinton about who’s a racist or who is not a racist.”
Clarke also argued that the Republican Party must unite behind Trump in order to defeat Clinton in the general election, something several conservative leaders have thus far refused to do.
