Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke says he has accepted a job with the Trump administration as an assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland Security. No sooner did Clarke announce then the white elites in one of the most segregated cities in America took to social media to trash him.

Here’s a smattering:

Clarke, who is a Democrat, is not charged with law enforcement primarily in Milwaukee County.  He runs the jails, the county parks, and oversees traffic enforcement on highways.  But lately he has taken to speaking out on issues such as conceal carry, Black Lives Matter, and other crime and personal safety issues that get short shrift from elected Democrats in Milwaukee, notably the Mayor and County Executive. As a conservative, Clarke has been an easy mark because blacks, who are largely liberal, won’t defend him.  White liberals and some white conservatives won’t defend him either.

If you want a measure of what conservatives in southeastern Wisconsin thought about Clarke, listen to Wednesday’s Mark Belling Show, from WISN Milwaukee. He was on the air at the time of this writing delivering a fantastic tribute to Clarke. Forget Charlie Sykes and his #NeverTrump blather. Belling nails it and he’ll post podcasts at the link above by the end of the afternoon.  There are also callers to the show that give an articulate flavor of how Clarke will be missed.
