According to the Oxford English Dictionary, a racist is someone who believes "all members of each racial group possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially to distinguish it as being either superior or inferior to another racial group or racial groups."
Nope. He was belligerent, accusatory, uncooperative, irrational and defamatory, throwing racial slurs at the white officer, even insulting the cop's mother (as in, "Yo momma is so...").
And when Gates refused, and became so incensed and insulting to the Sergeant who was there to protect his property that a crowd grew around his house, was Crowley supposed to allow this kind of behavior, just because Gates was black? No. He arrested Gates for disorderly conduct, as he was trained to do. Last time I checked, police arrest people regardless of race when they act like crazy people in the presence of peace officers.
So why is President Obama a racist? Because he, like his friend Gates, automatically assumed the white police officer "acted stupidly." BO assumed it was the white officer's fault, because, of course, we all know white cops are racist, right? And later, when he slightly retracted his statement, he still felt the need to say, "It would have been better if cooler heads had prevailed." By now he knew the facts, that his friend Gates had lost his mind and acted like a fool, but he assumed that Sgt. Crowley similarly lost it and "got all up" in Gates' face, because, of course, that's what all white cops do.
But this white cop didn't, because he's not just any cop, he is an expert at managing racial incidents just like this one became, because of Gates' racism. Friends and fellow officers of all races say Sgt. James Crowley is calm and reliable in situations racially hostile situs, because he was hand-picked by a black police commissioner to teach recruits how to avoid racial profiling, and Crowley has apparently been doing a stellar job at it for 5 years.
But Gates and our esteemed president didn't know that, did they?
So, who are the racists in this story? Gates accused a decent, decorated, above-reproach police officer of being a racist rogue cop, just because he was white. What did our esteemed "black" president do? He immediately took Gates' side, because he's a friend and black!
Mr. President, you are a racist. Shame on you.
BARACK OBAMA INSULTS SPECIAL OLYMPICS
Obama fans the flames of racism and this is a teaching lesson for us. Obama made a terrible joke about Special Olympics and that too was supposed to be a teaching lesson.
Towards the end of his approximately 40-minute appearance, the president talked about how he’s gotten better at bowling and has been practicing in the White House bowling alley.
He bowled a 129, the president said.
“That’s very good, Mr. President,” Leno said sarcastically.
It’s “like the Special Olympics or something,” the president said.
Mr. Obama and the rest of you Kool-Aid drinking apologists, spare us the BS spin of what you did not mean to do or say. It makes no difference what you intended to do, YOU DID IT!!!
The White House spin machine is already in full spin cycle trying to deflect Barack Obama’s latest gaffe.
When asked about the remark, the White House said the president did not intend to offend.
“The president made an off-hand remark making fun of his own bowling that was in no way intended to disparage the Special Olympics,” White House deputy press secretary Bill Burton said. “He thinks the Special Olympics is a wonderful program that gives an opportunity for people with disabilities from around the world.”
We were told during the 2008 Presidential campaign that for 20 years when Obama attended the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago Obama never sat in a pew when Reverend Jeremiah Wright made racists comments or spewed hate from the pulpit against America.
Just my thoughts!
I have to agree with the comments that continue to be made by Barack Obama as in the fact that I too have found many of them to be racists remarks!
I Never Agreed to This! I Never said that! Did you?
