Beck himself: Fri Jul, 24 2009 Gates Dismissed
Now, I say that Gates is a ****** ******. It has nothing to do with
his conduct in or around his home, which is all his business and he is
completely and exclusively welcome to it. It's about his resort to the
charge of race as motive in the ****** ******* cop. I really am not
interested in hearing about Gates' eminence or any of the rest of it
while little nobodies are being jack-booted around by these impudent
bastards all over the country, every day.
*If Gates finds it necessary, for whatever reasoning, to stake himself
to race in a matter like this, then he can have it and be as small and
ridiculous as he wants to be. However, he had a moment to step out
front on a far grander principle. Just mark it that he chose to play
it like a punk. His choice must say a great deal for his intellect and
from a comment BB saw at Reason.com Wed Jul, 22 2009
"In all the accounts of this stupid **** I've read in the media,
not one of them has mentioned the ******* stupidity of the
*******ish neighbor for 1) Not recognizing the supposedly famous, or
at least locally well-known, occupant of the house that he or she
suspected was being burgled, and 2) Defaulting to calling the cops
instead of seeing perhaps he (or she) could lend a hand."
That is the most incisive remark on the Henry Louis Gates affair that
I've seen yet.
When you think about it, it really is deplorable what a paper-thin and
quivering people have come to occupy this land now.
