In Cambridge, MA a neighbor reports two men breaking into a residence. Police responded to a home near Harvard University to investigate a report of a burglary and demanded identification from the man found inside the residence. Police say the man inside the house at first refused to provide identification, became irate, and then accused the officer of racism while making comments about the officer’s mother.
The man inside the home was charged with disorderly conduct.The story gets interesting because the man charged with disorderly conduct and playing the race card is Henry Louis Gates Jr. a Harvard University Black Studies Professor and “FOB” friend of President Barak Hussein Obama. Before all the facts came out, President Obama made three points. Pay particular attention to President Obama’s third point. "I think it's fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry," Obama said. "Number two, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home. And number three — what I think we know separate and apart from this incident — is that there is a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately, and that's just a fact."
The plot thickens as we now have the President of the United States of America weighing in and immediately playing the race card. If this was a poker game we would have President Obama and his friend Professor Gates Jr., smelling weakness, going all in playing the very strong race card hand. At the other end of the table is a lone white police officer suddenly pitted against a sitting U.S. President and a prominent black Harvard Professor. The stakes being played for tonight are Sgt. Crowley’s reputation, career, and life savings defending himself in a court of law. Sgt. Crowley and the city of Cambridge also have at stake the potential of facing a multi million dollar racial discrimination lawsuit. Sgt. Crowley confidently puts all his chips in the pot against President Barak Hussein Obama and Professor Robert Louis Gates, Jr. and wins. Sgt. Crowley is the racial profiling expert for the Cambridge police department.
Racially motivated attacks are most always based on deeply rooted hatreds born somewhere deep within the soul of the person who hates another person because of ones skin color. The power of playing the race card is once the dust settles the accused is permanently labeled a bigot and racist even if they win the case. Those people charged with racism, bigotry, and hatred often lose the war and will rarely get their reputation back if later found not guilty. Without loser pays tort reform the accuser playing the race card walks away unharmed, empowered to play the powerful race card again and again. To prove my point, Gates was quoted as saying this, "This isn't about me; this is about the vulnerability of black men in America,"… Gates said the incident made him realize how vulnerable poor people and minorities are "to capricious forces like a rogue policeman, and this man (Sgt. Crowley) clearly was a rogue policeman."
President Obama and Louis Gates, Jr are using Saul Alinsky’s tactic rule #13 against Sgt. James Crowley. Allinsky tactic rule 13 states, “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Pres. Obama and Gates are thinking they are at the point in the game where the lone white police officer realizes there is no way he can prove he does not harbor the remotest of racist feelings. The “target” next freezes, caves, and admits he was wrong, and undergoes sensitivity training usually by those same people who charged racism in the first place. End of story right – Not this time ladies and gentleman.
Sgt. Crowley, 42, said he won't apologize. And his union has expressed "full and unqualified" support for him. "The apology wont come from me. I've done nothing wrong," Crowley told WBZ. Crowley has taught a class on racial profiling for five years at Lowell Police Academy. In the class, he teaches officers about different situations and how officers should handle them. Sgt. Crowley has impeccable credentials teaching other police officers about racial profiling and dealing with situations exactly like Professor Gates put Sgt. Crowley in.
President Obama and Professor Gates owe Sgt. Crowley a sincere apology for their comments and actions in this case. President Obama should be compelled to use this incident to teach all Americans the police have sworn to serve and protect the citizenry and it is a very dangerous job. Every citizen should comply with an officer’s request without question for the protection of the police officer and themselves. If a citizen believes they have been unfairly treated by a police officer there are mechanisms built into our judicial system to redress those grievances. President Obama has an opportunity here to stand behind our countries police officers sending a signal that bigotry and hatred will not be tolerated on his watch.
Sadly, I don’t see our President taking the lead on this racial issue because he himself played the race card along with his friend Professor Louis Gates, Jr. The President and Professor Gates clearly have a hatred and bigotry towards white people based solely on their actions and comments in this incident.
Sgt. Crowley being a noted expert on racial profiling is immune from the racial attacks Professor Gates and President Obama have leveled against him in the court of public opinion. I can guarantee you if Sgt. Crowley was not a noted expert on racial profiling his career and reputation would have been destroyed by a sitting President and a Harvard Professor. The race baiters will slink away from this loss if nothing happened and wait for the next victim(s) to present themselves and attack.
President Obama replaced a bust of Winston Churchill with a bust of Martin Luther King Jr. in the oval office. It is ironic our President is everything Martin Luther King, Jr died fighting against. MLK said, "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation were they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character ." President Obama and his friend Professor Gates played the race card against a white police officer and lost. Professor Gates and President Obama have shown themselves to be bigots of the lowest order. Pres. Obama’s bigoted chickens have come home to roost, to coin a phrase from President Obama’s life long bigoted pastor Jeremiah Wright.
