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.

Leadership(?): Barack Hussein Obama

This Is Post-Racial?

IBD 24 July 2009

Leadership: Barack Obama promised a new “post-racialism.” But when a black pal was arrested by a white policeman for disorderly conduct, the president’s response was pure old race politics. So which is it?

During a press conference otherwise devoted to health care, the president on Wednesday interjected himself into a local police matter when he addressed the arrest of his friend Henry Louis Gates, a Harvard professor who got himself into an altercation with a Cambridge, Mass., cop on July 16.

Seems the cop, Sgt. James Crowley, had the cheek to ask Gates for identification during a routine burglary investigation.

That made the professor so angry that he hurled charges of racism, screamed outrage that Crowley didn’t know who he was, warned the cop not to “mess” with him and then created enough of a public disturbance to get himself arrested. The whole matter proved to be an embarrassment for all, and the city later dropped the charges.

But instead of admitting the most-likely truth — that his friend had made a fool of himself hollering racism over a legitimate police inquiry and let his academic ego get the better of him — Obama moved unexpectedly into the crudities of race-baiting, even after admitting he didn’t have all the facts.

“Now, I don’t know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played in that, but I think it’s fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry; 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. That’s just a fact.”

This fits nicely with the stereotype perpetuated at places like Harvard — that of white working-class cops going around rousting innocent blacks to preserve a white power structure.

But if that stereotype was ever true, it was before black mayors, black police chiefs, community organizing, sensitivity training and large university endowments for scholars such as Gates.

(It came out Thursday that Crowley himself is a police academy expert on racial profiling, having been handpicked for the job by a former police commissioner who is black and who says he has “nothing but respect for him as a police officer.”)

It was also before the rise of professional race-baiters such as the Rev. Al Sharpton, who use racism allegations to make political hay.

The election of Barack Obama was supposed to get us beyond grievance politics, reparations and all the things that create pointless conflict. Sadly, the president didn’t rise to the task in this case.

Bailing Out Shariah Law

December 31, 2008

Bailing Out Shariah Law


Islamofascism: In bailing out AIG, Uncle Sam may have taken on more than he bargained for, including a constitutional fight over the promotion of religion.

Earlier this month, as the New York-based insurance giant benefited from $153 billion in tax-supported bailout funds, it launched a business unit offering Shariah-compliant insurance products in the U.S.

For the first time, homeowners’ insurance policies “compliant with key Islamic finance tenets” will be marketed to Muslims in America.

We are pleased to offer socially responsible solutions to this segment of the domestic market,” the near-bankrupt AIG announced in a press release, explaining that the Islamic market represents “an important and emerging growth opportunity for AIG.”

But there’s little that is “socially responsible” about Shariah law, which regulates the “takaful” insurance AIG is selling, along with other Islamic finance.

Shariah law authorizes horrific human-rights abuses, including the kind of violence and oppression against women, homosexuals, apostates and non-Muslims seen in Saudi Arabia and earlier under the Taliban in Afghanistan.

To fully comply with Shariah code, AIG has hired a “Shariah Supervisory Board” composed of “Shariah scholars.” Who are these so-called scholars?

One, according to its press release, is Muhammad Imran Usmani, who happens to be the son of Sheik Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani, who supports violent jihad against Westerners. The elder Usmani is so radical that Dow Jones & Co. recently removed him from the board of its Islamic market index.

At a minimum, AIG has to do better due diligence if it’s going to use taxpayer money for such a controversial enterprise. But what’s the responsibility of the U.S. government here?

The Thomas More Law Center, a public-interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Mich., argues the U.S. is promoting a religious legal code at odds with democratic values and capitalism. And that makes the bailout unconstitutional. So it’s suing Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson and the Federal Reserve to stop all bailout funds from going to AIG.

According to the suit, use of taxpayer funds to acquire ownership of a business that intentionally promotes, endorses, supports and funds Shariah-based Islamic religious practices violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.

“The U.S. government, through its ownership of AIG, is not only violating the Constitution,” the suits claims, “but also promoting and financing the destruction of America using American tax dollars.”

While that sounds over-the-top, a sizeable share of the profit and any interest earned by AIG’s Islamic subsidiary must be “purified” by investing in Islamic charities. Such transfers will be controlled by Usmani and other Shariah advisers.

Since 9/11, dozens of major Muslim charities around the world, including several based in the U.S., have been tied to terrorism and shut down. So AIG — along with American taxpayers — could unwittingly finance terrorism against the U.S. and its allies.

The potential for terror money laundering deeply concerns two Republican leaders on the Hill, who on the heels of the Thomas More lawsuit fired off a letter to AIG CEO Ed Liddy warning him that the FBI could come knocking.

“We hope you can verify what hands your money passes through, because we would hate to see the FBI visit you one day, look into your books and tell you that money from AIG found its way into terrorist hands,” wrote Reps. Frank Wolf, congressional Human Rights Caucus co-chairman, and Sue Myrick, co-chairwoman of the congressional Anti-Terrorism Caucus.

What’s odd is that the Treasury Department is the agency charged with cracking down on terror financing, yet it’s encouraging firms like AIG to go into Islamic finance. In fact, Treasury co-sponsored a seminar in November titled “Islamic Financing 101” to promote Shariah financing to corporate America. [HOLY LAND FOUNDATION]

The seminar was jointly sponsored by Harvard University, which is heavily supported by Saudi petrodollars.

So it’s not just AIG that’s actively helping Shariah gain a foothold in America. It’s also Washington.

Financial crisis or not, it’s hardly in the economic interest of taxpayers or the U.S. to own part of a business that supports a Stone Age legal code championed by the Taliban and Osama bin Laden.

AIG should divest itself from Shariah business practices if it wants to keep its public bailout money.
