I don't think a beer summit is going to work this time either.....

Many with a liberal mindset thought a beer summit would resolve a "racial issue" nearly 11 years ago. Remember that? July 16. 2009, Henry Louis Gates was arrested after a neighbor called 911 to report that two men were trying to get into a house in what she worried might be a burglary. The two men were Gates, and the cabdriver who brought him home from Boston’s Logan International Airport. Gates, who walks with a cane, found his front door damaged and jammed. Gates went in through the back with a key, turned off his alarm and, with the driver’s help, forced opened the front door. By the time police arrived, Gates was inside and the driver who had carried his luggage into the house was gone. According to the police report, Crowley arrived at the scene, went up to the front door, and asked Gates to step outside. Crowley explained he was investigating the report of a break-in in progress; as he did so, Gates opened the front door and said, "Why, because I'm a black man in America?" Crowley's report states that he believed Gates was lawfully in the residence, but that he was surprised and confused by Gates' behavior, which included a threat that Crowley did not know who he was "messing with." Crowley then asked Gates for a photo ID so as to verify he was the resident of the house; Gates initially refused, but then did supply his Harvard University identification card. Crowley then told Gates that he was leaving his residence and that if Gates wanted to continue discussing the matter, he would speak to him outside. Gates replied, "Yeah, I'll speak with your mama outside." Gates stepped onto his front porch and continued to yell at Crowley, accusing him of racial bias and saying he had not heard the last of him. Faced with this tumultuous behavior from Gates, even though he was still standing on his own front porch, Crowley warned Gates that he was becoming disorderly. When Gates ignored this warning and persisted in his behavior, and likewise ignored a second warning from Crowley, Crowley informed him that he was under arrest on a charge of disorderly conduct and led him out of his house in handcuffs. What was Obama's response? Obama said: “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’s a long history in this country of African Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately.And the media calls Trump a racist!

These riots across America again tonight have little, if anything, to do with George Floyd, and everything to do with political posturing. Whether it be racism, Covid or riots in the streets, liberal Governors (and the media) are taking every opportunity to blame the President. And as long as there is another liquor store to rob, another police car to tip over, another building set ablaze, another TV camera to parade in front of, or another police officer to swear at and spit on, violence and destruction will continue on our city's streets until politicians address it for what it is, criminal lawlessness. Anarchy! Shame on the local politicians for calling it a civil matter. There is nothing civil about it. It is criminal activity. God Bless the men and women in Blue who are working to protect us.

Black Americans have for decades been used and abused by Democrats. Most all the real advances of Blacks in Government have been accomplished by Republican leaders. Colin Powell, Condolezza Rice, Clarence Thomas and the list goes on. Democrats use Blacks as pawns in advancing their Liberal Agenda. Liberals fuel the fire of Racism and they’re doing so now.
