WASHINGTON TIMES — Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke penned an op-ed Monday saying Americans are witnessing “guerrilla urban warfare” against law enforcement following the slayings of police officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge.
“Americans watching the news of the murders of police officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, are observing a civil war unfold within our borders. A war between rule of law and anarchy-seeking hate,” Sheriff Clarke wrote for The Hill.
He argued that the spate of cop killings were not acts of terrorism, but “guerrilla urban warfare” against the police, the Constitution and American ideals.
“It’s time to come to the aid of our police, our front-line soldiers, by calling this war, and not terrorism,” he wrote. “Avoiding the truth through wordsmithing — the false narrative of the lone-wolf — is contemptible as more innocent officers perish while our politicians hem and haw. We as a people need to declare that we stand with rule of law, and not with the false tales of the revolutionary Marxist forces, who most recently have rebranded themselves from Occupy Wall Street to Black Lives Matter.”
He said the Black Lives Matter movement is seeking revolution by targeting the rule of law — a common held goal with America’s enemies.
