As Obama doesn’t do things that don’t ultimately benefit him, this smells like a setup.
Not just a setup against Sgt. Crowley, but a prop up for Professor Gates as to make this whole mess go away. Not go away in the normal sense, but to also provide political cover for our spoiled child president who will never admit he was wrong, as evidenced by his lame “apology” (essentially blaming both Crowley and Gates for the escalation) while stuck on stupidly.
Think about it.
What could be the most damning piece of evidence in the whole “racial profiling” incident? Not the police report. That could be considered biased, even though a black officer on the scene of that infamous sequence of events corroborates Sgt. Crowley’s description of what happened.
No, what could be most damning would be the release of the audio recording of the incident itself. We would hear if Professor Gates was being reserved and collected while this white racist cop went over the line and victimized him, OR would we hear Sgt. Crowley being professional while Gates was in full big mouth, elitist, race-baiting mode?
If so, that audio would be all over the world by now. The fact we haven’t heard it yet tells me someone doesn’t want the black mayor of Cambridge who apologized to Gates, the black governor who also insulted the Cambridge PD, the esteemed professor from Harvard, or the president embarrassed.
Would a casual beer between the guys be construed as a putting all differences aside, thus putting that recording in the can for good? Should that happen, race pimp Gates will have been spared the humiliation due, and he really needs have a Tawana Brawley comeuppance moment.
If he is allowed to walk away after defaming an officer of the law and the President of the United States can walk away after defaming the character of an entire police department, then Barack Obama will have succeeded in playing the race card again, winning again, and putting the card back in the deck for future use.
