In the recent tv spot for the NRA, Sheriff Clarke took anti-law enforcement rhetoric head-on, declaring that oath keepers such as himself will never cower to violent criminals nor will they ever backdown from their sworn duty to uphold the Constitution of the United States.
You critics dont define our honor. You try to shame us for doing our job. You teach children to fear us, crowds to attack us and good people to doubt us. But we will never back down from our sworn duty to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America. We wake up every day, put on our badge, strap a gun to our hips, kiss our families good-bye and put our lives between the law-abiding and any criminal who threatens their rights. We serve people of every color and creed, men women and children in violent and dangerous neighborhoods because they have the same right of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as CEOs, movie stars and the political elite.
We are Americans and we are the American police officer. We stand with the National Rifle Association of America and the NRA stands with us. Together were Freedoms safest place.
