Skip to comments.Ben Smith Releases Selectively Edited Obama Race Video
Posted on 03/07/2012 11:01:57 AM PST by Jayster
Earlier today, Buzzfeeds Ben Smith announced on Twitter that video researcher Andrew Kaczynski had released the mysterious Harvard/Obama/race video that the Breitbart folks have been talking about. The video, which Kaczynski says was licensed from a Boston television station, shows a young Barack Obama leading a protest at Harvard Law School on behalf of Prof. Derrick Bell, a radical academic tied to Jeremiah Wright--about whom we will be releasing significant information in the coming hours. However, the video has been selectively edited--either by the Boston television station or by Buzzfeed itself. Over the course of the day, Breitbart.com will be releasing additional footage that has been hidden by Obama's allies in the mainstream media and academia. Breitbart.com Editor-in-Chief Joel Pollak and Editor-at-Large Ben Shapiro will appear on The Sean Hannity Show to discuss the tape. The full tape will be released tonight on Fox News' Hannity.

It’s on. Let’s see what comes of this tonight.
if someone gets a chance then please ping me with the full version of this tape as I don’t watch the phony can’t mention conservative social issues , conservative called Hannity
Is that the smell of desperation from this administration and their sycophants?
Weren’t Ben Shapiro and Ben Smith both formerly with Politico? I am wrong about this?
Maybe that is why they edited the video.
Breitbart’s team is releasing the full video though.
Democratic Strategist #1: What group/person can we make up a scandal about that will deflect attention from the annointed one?
Democratic Stratagist #2: I don’t know. Who haven’t we attacked yet?
#1: We went after Bush, Palin, Oil Companies, Coal Plants, Gas guzzling vehicles, Tea Party, Rush, Hannity, Bachmann, Gingrich, BP, Wall St, Bankers. Any one else you can think of?
#2: We have to be careful w/ Wall St and the bankers, that’s where we get most of our money and they may stop believing what we tell them in our secret meetings. But, I’m kind of stumped right now.
#1: We have to think of something fast. We tried Fluke and that’s not going the way we had planned, because they found out that she’s fraud. And I don’t think we can talk about the Breitbart. Its not nice to talk about the dead. But hey, we’re democrats. We can say whatever we want and not get in trouble for it.
Not seeing the video anywhere, even the edited one. On the breitbart site, there is just a still. That’s our barry tho.
Gonna have to go out and buy some popcorn...
So Obama was just like this Fluke person when he was a young stupid law school student? And no one should question students who are private citizens and who have a cause. Unless you are questioning The One’s policies, and then you are a Teabagger.
I hope it’s devastating, and embarrassing.
This professor was into Critical Race Theory.
Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic have documented the following major themes as characteristic of work in critical race theory:
A critique of liberalism: CRT scholars favor a more aggressive approach to social transformation as opposed to liberalism’s more cautious approach, favor a race conscious approach to transformation rather than liberalism’s embrace of color blindness, and favor an approach that relies more on political organizing, in contrast to liberalism’s reliance on rights-based remedies.
Storytelling/counterstorytelling and “naming one’s own reality”—using narrative to illuminate and explore experiences of racial oppression.
Revisionist interpretations of American civil rights law and progresscriticizing civil rights scholarship and anti-discrimination law.
Applying insights from social science writing on race and racism to legal problems.
Structural determinism, or how “the structure of legal thought or culture influences its content.”
The intersections of race, sex, and class—e.g., how poor Latinas’ experience of domestic violence needs distinctive remedies.
Essentialism and anti-essentialismreducing the experience of a category (like gender or race) to the experience of one sub-group (like white women or African-Americans).
Cultural nationalism/separatism, Black nationalism—exploring more radical views arguing for separation and reparations as a form of foreign aid.
Legal institutions, critical pedagogy, and minority lawyers in the bar.
As a movement that draws heavily from critical theory, critical race theory shares many intellectual commitments with CLS and critical theory, feminist jurisprudence, and postcolonial theory.
Recent developments in critical race theory include work relying on updated social psychology research on unconscious bias, to justify affirmative action; and work relying on law and economics methodology to examine Structural Inequality and discrimination in the workplace.
Who's been talking about this? I knew that Breitbart supposedly had some Obama college video(s) but not specifically what it was (they were). But it seems to me that Team Zero knows.
DOJ investigating FOX (NewsCorp) for reporting practices (UK)..hope this airs on Hannity as scheduled.
Well, first of all, definitely Obama favors a more aggressive approach to social transformation than liberalism!!! Ha ha ha, liberals — he really IS a commie.
He doesn’t want RIGHTS-BASED remedies. RIGHTS-BASED = human rights based on Gd. SEE??? He wants remedies that are RACE BASED. It doesn’t matter that all people have these rights. This “theology” (Thank you, Rick Santorum!) only cares about blacks!
How do you even define a “black?” One drop of blood, like 19th century racists? Are people with 1 grandparent “good” enough to get these race-based rights??
Liberals can’t defend this guy any more.
This just in from the White House:
SEE? We told you he went to Harvard.
Now eat your peas and shut up.
