The Harvard Hug: What Else Are Media Hiding?
Investors.com ^ | 3-9-12 | IBD Editorial Staff

Posted on 03/10/2012 5:20:50 AM PST by radioone

Bias: We were wrong. The media elite did in fact vet this president, but they covered up what they found. And now that citizen journalists are digging it up, they're trying to rebury it.

Exhibit A is the controversial video of Barack Obama praising and hugging radical Harvard law professor Derrick Bell. The media knew it existed four years ago and conspired with academia to hide it to get Obama elected.

"We hid this during the 2008 campaign," confessed Harvard law professor Charles Ogletree. PBS had it then, but cut both the audio and the hug in a report on Obama's Harvard days. The footage served as wallpaper. Now that Breitbart.com has put the entire video online, the major media have gone into damage-control mode for Obama.

PBS claims, disingenuously, "there's nothing new about the clip." NBC's Andrea Mitchell misled viewers by claiming Bell was "not a radical firebrand" but a "distinguished professor."

Of course the media covered up or covered over Obama’s radical left wing past.

Hmm ~ about the time Obama met Bell, Bell's glory days were far in the distant past of the school desegregation battles.

Then, voila, there were two Negros at Harvard, then four, and maybe a dozen, and they met and hugged and lept about.

This is Harvard guys ~ not a normal place, and just about the last institution in America to be desegregated.

Did someone fail to notice that about the time that happened, Harvard's standards had fallen in the basement ~ and they've never recovered.

The Harvard grads of the last 30 years just haven't been up to snuff

It's a national disgrace.

BTW, Andria is easily fooled by elderly men with gold teeth.

sure Andrea, anything you say.

Now that I am learning a little more of the hyper PC environment
including the Derek Bell protest, “diversity” hires,
that Harvard Law School was during this period, I understand
how all contenders were rejected for Harvard Law Review editor

except Obama.
He can talk white and was acceptable for the minorities.
He didn’t inflame the conservatives.

Obama comes in riding on a white horse.

But it was only because of the hyper racist partisan poisonous
environment at the time.

He only wrote a short review about abortion. That’s it.
He never worked a day at Harvard Law. He just bull sh*** all day long.

That’s what’s on Breitbart’s tape. That’s what he does now.

Bull S***. world class BS artist.

We need to vet the media for all to see. They have colluded with organizations and people inside and outside of this country to bring about a secret coup from within while lying to the American public until the job is done. VET THE MEDIA we can all do it. Brietbarts Pollack began with so called journalist Solidad Obrien.

Certainly there are some videos of Prof. Bell’s vitriolic racist and antisemitic remarks just like there were of Rev. Wright. That is what is missing from this hug video. What did Bell say to the crowd after BHO lovingly introduced him?

You know so little about Harvard yet you continue to denigrate the school. Harvard actually has a long history of accepting minority students.

Sounds like you’re still p.o.’d that Harvard turned you down.

This is just as important. People need to understand, especially as we get closer to the election, that the media will lie, distort numbers and hide facts from the public in defense of Obama and his agenda. They need to understand that the media will lie about our candidates as well.

The moderates can be swayed and once they understand how badly they were hoodwinked, they will turn. No one likes to know they've been lead around by their nose.

What else are the media hiding - PLENTY!!! And this will become the narrative for 2012. Why are the Legacy Media and Obama allies afraid of showing the “real Obama”?

Answer - a history of radical associations and activities. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Obama participating in Farrakhan’s Million Man March.

The Harvard Black Law Students Association (HBLSA) was founded in 1967. Today HBLSA is the largest chapter in the National Black Law Students Association. With well over 100 members, HBLSA is truly reflective of the diversity that exists within the Black community of Harvard Law School. HBLSA alumni range from Charles Ogletree, renowned legal scholar and our very own advisor, to Deval Patrick, Governor of Massachusetts, to Debra Lee, CEO of BET, to Barack and Michelle Obama, President and First Lady of the United States of America.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

http://gratewire.com/topic/students-occupy-deans-office-at-harvard-law-school

I found that Barack might not be the only Obama on the tapes.

In May 1988, Harvard Law students, borrowing from Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals,
and foreshadowing the Occupy movement of 2011, occupied the Harvard Law
School’s dean’s office. The students were supporting Professor Derrick
Bell’s demand that the law school hire professors on the basis of race.

One of the students “dressed in black” and occupying the dean’s
office appears to be Michelle Obama (Harvard Law ’88). Here is a link
to the grainy video. (lower right at about ten seconds in, wearing white Keds):

VIDEO at link:

Students occupy Dean's office at Harvard Law School

1:00:17: Visual: Shots of Harvard Law students studying their textbooks as they occupy the Dean's office in the administration building of Harvard Law School. Most of the students are African American. Marcus Jones reports that 50 Harvard Law School students marched into the administration building in the afternoon; that most of the students are African American; that many of the students wore black as a show of solidarity.

Date Covered

05/10/1988

http://openvault.wgbh.org/catalog/tocn-mla000573-students-end-demonstration-at-harvard-law-school

Summary
David Boeri reports that a group of Harvard Law students occupied the Dean's office overnight to protest the lack of minority faculty at the school. Boeri notes that the students held a rally for their cause this morning. Boeri’s report includes footage of Charles Ogletree (Visiting Professor, Harvard Law School) addressing a rally of students outside of the school. Boeri notes that the sit-in is over for now and that student leaders met with James Vorenberg (Dean, Harvard Law School) to discuss their demands for an increase in minority faculty members. Boeri interviews Robert Wilkins (Harvard Black Law Students Association) about the meeting with the Dean.

Robinson majored in sociology and minored in African American studies and graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in 1985.[4][25] She earned her Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree from Harvard Law School in 1988.[26] At Harvard she participated in demonstrations advocating the hiring of professors who were members of minorities[27] and worked for the Harvard Legal Aid Bureau, assisting low-income tenants with housing cases.[28]

Harvard turned me down at three levels, but I deserved it and I'm not po'd about it, now that I've grown up.

HOWEVER

There is no doubt that the intellectual ability of grads, even HMS grads, is in serious decline.

Now, that's part of a much larger trend, true, but it's also true that the mission John Harvard bequeathed to the New College was, in essence, to run counter to anti-intellectual and anti-social trends, a mission at which the College and associated Schools are now, quite conspicuously, failing.

The important lesson here is just why is there taxpayer funding for PBS? What is the need to subsidize administration propagandists like Charlie Rose with hundreds of millions of dollars yearly in OUR money when there are a zillion cable channels, including those that will put on left-wing zealots/toupee’d kooks like Olbermann whom no one watches? For some reason, I thought the Reps controlled the House, where revenue bills are SUPPOSED to originate. Yet, we see story after story of this propaganda wing of the Dem party called “Public” Broadcasting that uses OUR money and no one puts an end to their feeding at the public trough.

Why don’t we understand this; The media elites that vetted Obama are Communists so Briebart’s video is just a big “so what” to them.

What is illustrative is that they full well knew this, framed it a way that was palatable to the voters and they sucked it up.

I am a little cynical of all these videos. I will never ever vote for Obama. I will never believe a word he says. I don’t think he does things without politcal motive, instead of service to our beautiful country. I just think these videos will never convince Obama followers. The Rev Wright video was enough for me, I would have thought it was enough for anyone, but unfortunately I think this country might already be in serious trouble.

Since you are not an alumnus of Harvard what they do should be of little importance to you.

Try to be more positive. Every time you get the urge to malign a school you never attended, instead post something positive about a school where you actually studied.

Makes one kind of understand why Obama’s grades are a state secret...he likely was just more black window dressing...this time as president of the law reveiw.

No birth certificate...no passport records...no college grades or thesis...no investigation of his perhaps several social security numbers.

Rumors are out there that Barack/Barry lived in the foreign student dorm at Occidental. Nobody in the press is interested in any of this.

Andrew Breitbart is dead and Rush is fighting for his commercial life...a coincidence?

You’re not wrong...most voters don’t care about Obama’s past...but this helps take the media out of this campaign.

If we can show most people that the msm can’t be trusted to report the truth about Obama...it’s a start to forcing others to look beyond the media lies.

This stuff will never in itself defeat Obama...but enough of it will defeat the media...and once Obama’s media screen is gone, we can get to the truth about this guy.

So, little miss snooty, do you imagine people have to attend Harvard to give a darned about it?

It used to be a useful national resource.

Do you believe that we should only protect our southern border? Do you think we should only attack the north and east sides of Afghanistan? Do you think we should only invest in "clean" energy? My point is that we need an all of the above approach to getting rid of Obama - not just his record.

More importantly, you mentioned agenda. Where did he get his agenda? How engrained is that agenda? How long has he had that agenda - PROVING he is an ideologue will help us defeat him.

CONTEXT! CONTEXT! CONTEXT! That is how you win an argument or election! We must paint the picture that the MSM is REFUSING to paint! They show you the pretty house with it's fancy picket fence and awnings, etc... But they don't let you see the termite invested walls and the rickety foundation! WE have to put this President in perspective for the "voters we want to convert." Those people DO care!

What we have here is a conspiracy by the Obama campaign and its friends in academia and media to suppress the truth. They have a vested interest in helping Obama fool the electorate because they share his dreams of economic equality.

In 2008, the media made Obama out to be something he's clearly not, and the electorate fell for it. They're hoping it will again.

That's essentially what Breitbart's editor told CNN's Soledad O'Brien during their interview when she asked "where's the big news in this"? Breitbart's editor responded "you're making it now". Classic retort ....followed with Soledad's deer in the head lights response.
