The View From 1776

Henry Lewis Gates, Barack Obama, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson: peas from the same pod.
Liberal-progressive voters and the mainstream liberal-progressive media, hanging worshipfully on every word of Barack Obama (RPOTUS), reflexively see Professor Henry Lewis Gates’s racist behavior toward a white policeman doing his job by the book as proof that a complete socialization of the nation, with broadened hate crime penalties, is required.
Will the rest of the nation buy it?
As Professor Thomas Sowell writes, what else could we expect from a man whose only prior executive experience was as a community agitator whose job was to stir up racial resentments. During the presidential campaign, RPOTUS told Joe the Plumber what to expect: he intended to take from responsible citizens and give to his political supporters.
That agenda, we should not be surprised, is being promoted by community organizing (aka racial agitation), now on a national scale.
