Skip to comments.Is Dr. Gates Telling The Truth About Death Threats?
Posted on 08/16/2009 10:54:09 PM PDT by TheMadKing
Dr. Gates has made some bizarre statements along with his recent bomb and death threat claims, including "dreaming of being arrested at the White House." Is he dreaming about death and bomb threats, too? After his dreamed-up racism, I want to see reality.

That sound bizarre to you? If Dr. Gates is lying about death and bomb threats as he lied about Sgt. James Crowley, it is but for one reason: to replay his "Black Man in America" victimhood scheme, and even throw down the race card again so he can transform himself from victimizer to victim. Who else would be emailing and threatening him but the Big Bad Whitey Wolves?
This is not an uncommon practice among left-wing racial grievance-mongers. One such individual attracting a lot of blogger attention now is Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center. Mr. Potok has been screaming for months of the rising racially-motivated threats against President Obama since last year, most recently and famously on ABC's piece, "White Hate Groups Thrive," in which Mr. Potok is also trying to paint town hall protesters as racist extremists as well. Yet a common theme that runs throughout all those Potok interviews since last year is the statement, "the President's daily threat matrix has yet to rise." Why not, if the threat is rising as exponentially as Mr. Potok claims?
Where's the evidence? The Sweetness & Light and Newsbusters blogs would like to know. In fact, they're doing more than that. They're tearing Mr. Potok's claims apart piece by piece. As to Dr. Gates' claims, bomb threats should be big news! No evacuations? No bomb-sniffing dogs and SWAT teams as his house? I mean Harvard's house? Can't find any active investigations on threats to Dr. Gates anywhere. Why not? All he talked about to the press was one single email that read, "You're a racist. You should die." Nobody has even seen that! Yet even "you should die" is a very long way from, "I'm gonna kill ya, Skippy!"
There's a big difference between telling people to go kill themselves, or that they SHOULD die, and promises of murder. Hell, I've gotten worse than that at DJ and Big Hollywood! Where's The Beef? If Dr.Gates is going to claim victimhood again, I want to see the evidence. He should be proud to put it on public display to prove his case. Right? I would be. Show us the emails! The letters! Post them on the web. Let us see date codes as to when they were received. HuffPo and KOS would post them in a heartbeat!
But nothing on the FBI or DHS websites about mortal threats to Dr. Gates' life. Nothing in the Cambridge Police Department logs for August, either. Checked 'em all. How about a redacted police report at least? If I seem harsh toward the Good Professor Skippy Gates, it is because he has earned that harshness. No journalists worth their salt would take the word of a source that burned them. Did not Dr. Gates burn all of us with his hoax cry of racial wolf? Why should I believe him now? I want to see proof from Harvard PD, the FBI, DHS, or CPD itself. Until I do, I have no reason to believe a defaming liar and professional victim, any more than I would a precocious child who insists on crying wolf where none can be found.
Like Tawana Brawley and Crystal Mangum, for example. Hmm. Curious. Why isn't anyone else asking these tough questions? Who in the Vein Stream Media has really investigated even one of his wild claims? Zzz...wake us up when the interview's over, Doc. Good Night and Good Luck! I think we'll all need it.
No. I, for one, never believed him for a second.
Good night! This Dr Gates is going through the race baiting playbook to see if it will pull another racist rabbit out of the hat. And we are getting tired of these worn out old tricks.
Maybe he is just old. Who knows.
It’s worse than defamatory, worse than s libel, worse than a crime: it’s a cliche’.
Old, and crazy maybe?
Until more is known, I’d cut Prof. Gates some slack. Among the symptoms of early-onset Alzheimer’s, before a diagnosis is possible, are extreme irritability and paranoia. You only realize this when you look back on it.
I think Gates is in his mid 50s. That’s very early for Alzheimers. But I agree, maybe he has medical or mental problems. Unlike Obama, let’s learn all the facts before we make any judgements.
What a pompous ass this guy is. Harvard is starting to look like the type of University you would need to go to if you were studying to become a condescending jerk.
He’s just looking for another beer and a trip to DC at own expense.
Dear Dr. Gates, I hope you get put on ObamaCare!
Remember Pi R round.
I would too.
As a member of the ahyphena glitterati, it is incumbent on people like "Skippy" Gates to search for opportunities to promote and enhance the hate the caucasian mindset.
Skippy better hope his dementia doesn’t disqualify him for HellCare in the near future. Isn’t he temured at that famous bastion of elite bigotry, HCIC, Harvard College and Indoctrination Center.
Liar....he’s a LIAR unless BAMMY threatened him!
I think you're missing the point tho, no offense intended, Skippy is an "elight" and a minority so he will probably get some special treatment. That's how they take care of the nomenklatura don't you know.
