Fox’s Glenn Beck says he believes Obama is racist

NEW YORK (AP) – Fox News Channel commentator Glenn Beck said he believes President Barack Obama is a racist. Beck made the statement during a guest appearance Tuesday on the “Fox & Friends� morning show. He said Obama has exposed himself as a person with “a deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture.�

His remarks came during a discussion of Obama’s reaction to the arrest of Harvard University scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. Gates is black and was arrested for disorderly conduct by a white policeman over a misunderstanding about a break-in at Gates’ home.

An Obama spokesman, William Burton, said the White House had no comment on Beck.

Beck’s statement was challenged on the air by Fox host Brian Kilmeade, who noted that most of the people who work for the nation’s first black president are white.

“I’m not saying he doesn’t like white people,� Beck said. “He has a problem. This guy is, I believe, a racist.�

Fox’s Glenn Beck says he believes Obama is racist

Personally, I believe that Glenn Beck is 100%, dead center, square on the mark. But here’s the real truth about being *on the mark* in the MSM, even with the mighty FOX News Network, sometimes, no matter how right you are, your words are going to come back to haunt you, and possibly cost you a job. Ask E.D. Hill.

E.D. Hill and her show, “America’s Pulse� has been removed from her time slot at Fox, because of something she said in her news presentation . On June 6th last, on her former program, “America’s Pulse,� E.D. Hill teased in a segment about body-language about Obama’s fist bump with his wife Michelle.

Obama supporters and the leftist blogs on the web were in a rage and an uproar about the comments, and George Soros’ “Media Matters� began a campaign encouraging people to contact Fox and complaint about what is in their view an unforgivable slight of Obama and Michelle.

Fox Removes E.D. Hill and Her Show

E.D. Hill makes a crack about the fist bump, an exhibition of ghetto solidarity if ever there was one, and *poof*, she’s history.

And just today, Michelle Malkin was on Glenn Beck’s program. I know she wasn’t directly involved but she was present when FOX made a reference to Michelle Obama being the BABY MAMA!

NEW YORK (AP) – Fox News Channel referred to Michelle Obama as “Obama’s baby mama� in a graphic on Wednesday, the latest in a trio of references to the Democratic presidential campaign that have given fuel to network critics.

The graphic “Outraged liberals: Stop picking on Obama’s baby mama� was flashed during an interview with conservative columnist Michelle Malkin about whether Barack Obama’s wife has been the target of unfair criticism.

My story on that incident is HERE but it appears that MyWay or AP has removed the story from their link.

Bill Shine, senior vice president of programming at Fox, said in a statement that a producer “exercised poor judgment� during the segment. The producer was not fired; no other disciplinary action was announced. Hill’s “terrorist fist jab� comment came in a tease to a segment on the candidates’ body language, and it wasn’t repeated during the subsequent interview. She told Fox it was taken from something she had read online.

Bad Boys, Bad Boys, Watcha Gonna Do…?

July 27th, 2009 . by TexasFred

Bad Boys, Bad Boys, Watcha Gonna Do…

When a slick “community organizer” cons his way into the White House, you may be able to take him out of the hood, but you can’t get the hood out of him.

When Barack Hussein Obama interrupted a recent live media propaganda confab on his administration’s most critical national initiative (socializing health care) in order to accuse a local police officer of “acting stupidly,” he got more than my attention; he earned my disrespect — and that of most law enforcement offices and veteran officers across the nation.

I graduated from a state police academy at age 19 and worked as a uniformed patrolman for the next four years while completing my undergraduate degree. That was many years ago, but I can assure you that there is no such thing as a “former police officer.” You can take a trooper off patrol, but can’t get the patrol out of a former trooper.

On occasion when my kids and I watch the television program “Cops,” with its familiar theme song “Bad Boys” and cameras recording real patrol officers on pursuits and takedowns, they know that I am not so much watching the show as I am vicariously riding shotgun.

So when Obama used a national soapbox to unfairly chastise a local Cambridge, Massachusetts, police officer, Sgt. James Crowley, for arresting one of BHO’s comrades, Harvard professor Henry Gates, Obama also took a cheap shot at every sworn officer and veteran officer in America. It’s a big fraternity, and even a novice like Obama should have known better.

Bad Boys, Bad Boys, Watcha Gonna Do…?

In the interest of *Fair and Balanced*, I ask all of my readers this, have any of you heard one word from the mouth of Obamanure regarding the murdered Border Patrol agent in California or the 2 Seminole County Oklahoma Deputies that were murdered over the weekend?

Go ahead, check ALL the MSM and blog sources, I’ll wait… *chirp, chirp, chirp*

Sorry, I was going to take a nap while folks looked around for sources claiming Obamanure was exhibiting great anguish and outrage over the deaths of Law Enforcement Officers but the chirping crickets kept waking me up.

No one found anything even remotely similar to that, did you? That’s because Obamanure only criticizes our police, calls them “STUPID”, and after he stirs the ire of the American public, tries to *kiss and make up* with a childish offer to ‘sit down and talk about it over a beer’.

Somehow, I am guessing that Dr. Gates may find a beer to be beneath his assumed social status. It seems to me that every Black PhD I have personally had any dealings with seems to think himself a lot more important than he actually is, and it would be a natural assumption that Gates would demand something in a green bottle, an imported beer at the very least.

In any event, Obama, who has himself been so steeped in a culture of ethnocentric elitism by mentors of racial hatred like his old “pastor,” Jeremiah Wright, could not help but assume that the arrest of Gates was the result of racism.

At the risk of being accused of racism yet again, this Gates tale of woe is simply an example of monkey see, monkey do. The behavior of Wright, Gates, et al, is an ingrained behavioral response that comes out any time their self assumed authority is brought into the equation. Question a person like Jeremiah Wright or Dr. Gates on ANYTHING and BINGO, right on cue, the RACE CARD is thrown. Sadly, in this case, the President of the USA picked up that RACE CARD, and instead of defusing the situation, he, Obamanure, threw that RACE CARD even further into the RACE CARD pot!

Obama ‘stupidly’ comment disappoints Mass. cop

Obama ‘stupidly’ comment disappoints Mass. cop

NATICK, Mass. (AP) – A white police sergeant who arrested renowned black scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. said Thursday he’s disappointed President Barack Obama said officers acted “stupidly,” despite acknowledging he didn’t know all the facts.

Sgt. James Crowley responded to Gates’ home near Harvard University last week to investigate a report of a burglary and demanded Gates show him identification. Police say Gates at first refused and accused the officer of racism.

Gates was charged with disorderly conduct. The charge was dropped Tuesday, and Gates has since demanded an apology from Crowley.

Obama was asked about the arrest of Gates, who is his friend, at the end of a nationally televised news conference on health care Wednesday night.

Obama ‘stupidly’ comment disappoints Mass. cop

If my understanding of this is correct, the professor was seen trying to enter a home, HIS home, and doing so by breaking in because he had lost, forgot or misplaced his house keys. I can’t fault the good doctor for that, been there myself on one occasion.

Gates later went on to say that the door was jammed. Maybe so, I can’t argue that fact one way or another, but in ANY case, he was making a forced entry into a residence, be it his or that of someone else. A forced entry was made.

A neighbor apparently saw an *unknown* individual committing what appeared to be a break-in, into a residence that is, as I understand it, in a high crime area, and said neighbor did the right thing and called the police.

And again, IF my understanding is correct, officers responded and caught Dr. Gates in the process of breaking into what turned out to be HIS home. The officers detained him, Dr. Gates told the officers that it was HIS home, the officers demanded PROOF of such and at this point Dr. Gates went off on a hate and invective filled racist tirade and was arrested for disorderly conduct. If I have ALL of MY information correct that is.

Henry Louis Gates Jr. may well be a renowned black scholar, but apparently the responding officers didn’t know him. Those officers were well within their line of duty by demanding identification from Gates. Suppose there really had been a break-in and suppose the perpetrators had told the responding officers a tall tale of being the owner of the home? And suppose the officers acquiesced to those tall tales and left the home to be burglarized unabated?

What would Dr. Gates have said then?

Gates has said he was “outraged” by the arrest. He said the white officer walked into his home without his permission and only arrested him as the professor followed him to the porch, repeatedly demanding the sergeant’s name and badge number because he was unhappy over his treatment.

“This isn’t about me; this is about the vulnerability of black men in America,” Gates said.

He said the incident made him realize how vulnerable poor people and minorities are “to capricious forces like a rogue policeman, and this man clearly was a rogue policeman.”

Of course Gates was outraged, real life jumped up and slapped him in the face. He wasn’t fawned over by those that knew and respected him. He was subjected to every day, run of the mill, good law enforcement by officers that were doing the job they were hired to do, that job being to SERVE and PROTECT the citizens and property. So, yes, Dr. Gates, it IS about you, whether you like it or not. All you had to do was produce some identification and the cops would have bid you good day and left you in your academic world of respect and privilege.
