The campaign to draft Milwaukee County David Clarke to run against US Senator Tammy Baldwin put out a fundraising email last week, and it hit all the dog whistles.
The email, which appeared to come from former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, opens with campaign organizer Jack Daly recounting his teenage son being “viciously attacked and brutalized” by “young black thugs.”
No media outlets except the far-right website Got News reported that attack.
“Milwaukee’s conservative black Sheriff CORRECTLY says ‘BLACK LIVES MATTER’ is a terrorist movement, a hate group, and calls it ‘Black LIES Matter,'” Daly writes in the email, which also calls Baldwin an “in-your-face lesbian and screaming feminist.” .
Also from the email:
Milwaukee’s conservative black Sheriff CORRECTLY says “BLACK LIVES MATTER” is a terrorist movement, a hate group, and calls it “Black LIES Matter.” He called Al Sharpton a “charlatan,” and said he “should shut up and go back into the gutter.”
Does your Senator talk like that?
Does he urge black voters to “leave the Democrat plantation”? Does he say, “I’m tired of this race card thing”?
Does he call Planned Parenthood “Planned Genocide”?
Does your Senator post this on Facebook? “Islam: Don’t Try to Understand ‘Sick Ideology’ of Islamism; Destroy It.”
The campaign’s website does not list Giuliani as an adviser or supporter, and did not respond to a request to confirm that Giuliani is on board.
