CNN Seeks To Limit Loss of Credibility By Rewriting History
Flopping Aces ^ | 03-12-12 | Skookum

By now, the literate world is well aware of CNN's news anchor, Soledad O'Brien's public humiliation during her interview with Breitbart's Pollak. If there was ever a doubt in the mind of anyone but the most dedicated Socialist sycophants of the Main Stream Media being less than an unofficial propaganda bureau for the president, this should have been the deciding factor.

CNN is now in full damage control mode, by trying to cast Derrick Bell, one of America's foremost racists and former mentor to our president as a great crusader for civil rights in the spirit of Martin Luther King; unfortunately, the truth and facts are ugly and one of our president's early friends and mentors is a vicious and vile racist who used his dubious academic credentials and a prolific effort of obfuscation to disguise stark racism as an analytical theory on race. In an effort to "Save Face" in the oriental tradition, a writer from CNN, with considerably more ability than O'Brien, has written a 1500 word essay to vindicate O'Brien and to help lessen the public's impression of CNN and O'Brien being in the tank or should we say cess pool with Obama and willing to do or say anything to promote the Obama agenda. However, it is this essay and its revisionist stance on recent history, that provides the proof of CNN's complicity with the Obama agenda.

Soledad committed her first error by not admitting that she was a fan of Bell or perhaps her first mistake was not admitting to CNN that although she had read Bell's books, her comprehension was marginal.

There is nothing wrong with being a sycophantic fan of a writer, but the problem becomes apparent when the fan is passed off as an objective analyst; unfortunately, for Soledad, she was humiliated and became a laughingstock, along with her employer, the Obama Propaganda Bureau, CNN.

CNN has now decided to do battle with the forces that have no reservations against calling the racist Derrick Bell, a racist, by rewriting or blunting the message of the racist mentor of President Obama and trying once again to repackage the vile message of racism under a pretense of scholarly circumlocution.

The story of our president and the endemic racism of his associates is ongoing with many surprises.

In November of 1985, the Harvard Law Review published a seminal article of Critical Race Theory, written by Derrick Bell, and edited by a student, Elena Kagan. The same article was cited by Professor Charles Ogletree and by President Obama as support for her nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court in 2010. The article defines the Constitution as a form of "original sin". A similar view has been expressed by President Obama in referring to the flaws of the Constitution. Most of the article is fiction and meant as a parable. Unfortunately, the parables of a racist are now becoming institutionalized within our legal system.

Thank God for the net, bloggers and the Wayback Machine. This is the first time in human history that the ‘little people’ can vet history and facts in order to refute elitism and Statism.

Leftists (er, now “progressives”) like O’Brien have been gleeful at the thought of the ‘revolution’ and ‘speaking truth to power’. Now that common people can come to their own opinion, leftists are gobsmacked. They can’t handle it when they hold themselves out as the ‘power’ and they are spoken to with truth.

It may well be -- but we don't know for sure. We have to keep on taking the fight to them.

It's a good thing that Derrick Bell never said that Strom Thurmond would have made a good president, or he'd REALLY be in racist trouble.

The most striking thing about this article isn't the issue with CNN. It is the statement that the Kagan article was used in her nomination process! Good Gravy! Don't the Senators read the submitted papers? Don't they have a staff for that? Why in the world was she not asked to explain:

"The Constitution has survived for two centuries and, despite earnest efforts by committed people, the contradiction remains, shielded and nurtured through the years by myth. This contradiction is the root reason for the inability of black people to gain legitimacy — that is, why they are unable to be taken seriously when they are serious and why they retain a subordinate status as a group that even impressive proofs of individual competence cannot overcome. Contradiction, shrouded by myth, remains a significant factor in blacks’ failure to obtain meaningful relief against historic racial injustice."
