The Beer Meeting between Obama, Sgt, Crowley and Louis “I’ll talk to your Momma” Gates has apparently been set. Everyone, of course, refers to it as “Obama’s Beer Diplomacy,” when all initial reports indicated it was Crowley’s idea.
Harvard University professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. and the Cambridge police officer who arrested him June 16, Sgt. James Crowley, will hoist a cold one with the president Thursday evening, officials told ABC News…
Obama called Crowley and Gates on Friday and proposed that the three get together to discuss the incident at the White House over a beer. The White House is now hoping to turn the debate into a dialogue about racial profiling.
“I think the president sees this as an opportunity to get dialogue going on an issue that has… been historically troubling and one he has worked on,” White House Senior Adviser David Axelrod said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
Let’s set aside here for the moment Urkel and his Mob taking credit for Crowley’s suggestion. That malevolent White House crew has now announced they’re hoping to use this situation to make this class-based debacle into “a dialogue about racial profiling.” Even after the 911 tape confirmed it was not a race-based call, and the other officers at scene, of all complexions, confirmed this was a good arrest based on behavior, not skin color.
As Obama’s approval numbers crash and his agenda to bankrupt this nation crumbling, Obama is desperate to turn the tide the way he knows best–by stoking racist divisions. Bottom line: all this happened because Americans keep victimizing blacks, treating them with a different set of rules. As I noted on Tammy Radio and in my Special Report podcast on the issue, this is an issue of class, not race–White Collar Elitists versus Blue Collar Law Enforcement. After all, how dare someone beneath the President and his Harvard University professor friend dare to even enter their charmed and privileged lives?
