President Takes Sides Without The Facts

with 7 comments


How interesting that the president of the United States would insert himself into the middle of a racially charged conflict between a police officer, Sgt. James Crowley, and a prominent African-American scholar, Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. of Harvard.

Gates accuses the officer of racism, a charge Sgt. Crowley adamantly denies, apparently with the backing of other officers on the scene. Obama admits he wasn’t on the scene, doesn’t have all the facts, and only has “suspicions” about what went on but concludes the Cambridge police acted “stupidly.”

Let’s see – I don’t know the facts, but the police acted stupidly. That’s just beautiful, and speaks volumes about Obama.

Last week Obama dumped on the white firefighters in New Haven and this week it’s a white cop in Cambridge. It looks like no matter if right or wrong, President RaceCard is cultivating a reputation of siding against the white folks.

A Little Info About Professor Gates

Gates teaches in the department of African-American studies. What exactly is African-American Studies? It’s an entire department devoted to creating racial friction. All of his academic writings are about racial issues. Everywhere the man looks in the world is filtered through the prism of race. He expects to see racism and therefore does, even from those there to help him. So, instead of appreciation for the effort of protecting his home, he overreacts and is belligerent to the police.


The bottom line is you have an obnoxious citizen challenging the cops to arrest him and he got his wish. Obama jumps in and uses stereotypes instead of facts to conclude what happened.

Obama was elected in part because people believed he would heal social divisions rather than deepen them. I guess we can scratch any idea of him contributing a positive force in race relations.

  1. Too great! I now know of one house in Cambridge that can be broken into where police are not likely to show up in a timely manner.

  2. The only racial profiling happening in Cambridge is by the liberals at Harvard.

  3. The One just made a surprise speech and although there was no apology he did throw Gates under the bus. The usual amateur hour tap dance.

  4. Obama is such a manipulator. He thinks he can cover up this mistake by offering Sgt. Crowley a beer. Of course if Crowley doesn’t accept then he will be portrayed as the bad guy all over again.

    Sgt. Crowley should at least hold out for a steak dinner and to invite the entire Cambridge police force. It will give some guy with a truck a chance to stop by the Gates Plantation and clean him out. A fitting end and perhaps a little justice Mr. Gates so richly deserves.

  5. Barack Obama and Professor “Skip” Gates are the modern day black Archie Bunker. Just as Archie Bunker was a caricature for conservatives, Obama and Gates are caricatures for liberals. The difference is one was fictional whereas the others are real.

  6. Hi LC,

    Sounds to me like President and Leader For Life Obama was listening closely to what Rev. Wright was preaching all those years.

    • Hi Grit

      Obama seems to have learned well from his old black master. I wouldn’t be surprised if the young Obama played guest speaker at a meeting or two. Well, him and his teleprompter.

      I’m sure there was even an abundance of teachable moments offered at Rev. Wright’s house of hate. The least of which was how to pull white guilt out of your hat or the race card from your sleeve… all in the name of God.
