Skip to comments.Never Before Seen 1991 Video Of A Harvard Protest Shows Barack Obama Defending A Radical Law Prof.
Posted on 03/07/2012 6:29:11 PM PST by tobyhill
Andrew Kaczynski of Buzzfeed discovered this little gem of a video, in which then-law student Barack Obama spoke at a protest in favor of Harvard Law Professor Derrick Bell.
Kaczynski explains what the protest was all about.
Bell was the first black tenured professor at the school, and a pioneer of "critical race theory," which insisted, controversially, on reading issues of race and power into legal scholarship. His protest that spring was occasioned by Harvard's denial of tenure to a black woman professor, Regina Austin, at a time when only three of the law school's professors were black and only five women. He told Harvard he would take a leave of absence a kind of academic strike "until a woman of color is offered and accepted a tenured position on this faculty," and he launched a hunger strike to dramatize his point.
Obama was a major figure on campus, the first black president of the Law Review. Some friends, in a prescient joke, just referred to him as "the first black president." He had a reputation as a conciliatory figure, not a confrontational one like Bell.

I sure would like to know what else is being ‘hidden’ about Barack Obama.
Even when the truth comes out, people still don’t believe it...
I would sure love to see the tapes the L.A. times is hiding...with Obama and Rashid Khalidi.
I hate to say this, but unless there is something truly awful on this video it’s never going to get any traction in the MSM.
http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,596202,00.html ‘Glenn Beck’: Who Is Charles Ogletree?
I’m watching Hannity. Today he said he was going to show the entire 14 minute unedited tape. What happened? This is ridiculous! He showed the edited version and then a prof at Harvard saying how they hid it—that’s it? Come on.
The real story is that it was hidden and the current story is the contortions the media goes through to avoid embarrassment over it today.
he showed the part that Ogletree hid....hugging the professor BFD
Agreed. The Khalidi tape could be explosive. I’m watching Hannity now — this tape doesn’t amount to much IMHO. Only thing different from the tape released earlier today is he hugged the guy. Hopefully this is a drip drip drip and they have something more substantive than this.
The real story isn’t just what’s on the tape. It’s the FACT that such tapes (and the one of Obama at the dinner with the Islamic terrorist) that have been KNOWN about and SUPPRESSED.
The transparent Marxist has been shielded by a complicit media. The same sort that forged military memos to try to throw a presidential election.
Interesting backstory about the black female professor. The reason for the gathering is to aggitate for her tenure...based on race and gender. This shows that obama was a race pimp from way back.
OK, so this is the same community organizer who started his career in Bill Ayers’, the radical bomber, living room, went to the radical church of the radical preacher Wright, hired the radical comminist Van Jones as well as the demented lunatic environmental radical Holdren, and is in fact a communist radical himself, so this video of him hugging a radical harvard prof means what? Obama’s a radical? Gee, no kidding...
There’s more but there’s also a reason for them and these teasers. The MSM has now been put on notice that there’s tapes out there and people are aware that they are hiding them. We will start seeing more and more.
Then WHY have we heard NOTHING from anyone who "remembers him at Harvard"????
Gimme a break....
He’s been hyping this crap all day!
BFD is right. He SAID he was showing the whole unedited 14 minute version and everyone would be shocked. Pisses me off. I will not believe any of this stuff is coming out with baloney like that. WTH??
As many of us suspected: BFD. What a letdown.
Wasn’t there a rumor back on ‘08 that there was tape of The First Linebacker hollering about “Crackas” or some such?
From what I've read, this showing was almost as SENSATIONAL as Geraldo's "Al Capone's Vault" episode.....
It was Hannity’s attempt to bump ratings by playing off of Breitbart’s untimely demise. There was nothing there.
Breitbart said he was releasing video in August? No doubt he was putting something together that may have had some impact. Only Breitbart would have known for sure but this could not possibly have been it. A single video showing what? Obama introducing some radical professor? He has made more radical cabinet appointments!!!
A good boxer will jab, jab, jab until the timing is right for the knock-out blow. I hope tonight’s release was a jab, and a bigger blow is coming later.
Very interesting video. Norhing earth moving, but interesting.
We see a tape that we learned was purposely hidden from conservatives by the leftist media back in 1998. We learned that Obama was a supporter of radical racist Dr. Bell. He believed in taling radical reverse racism and inflicting it on the public with double the force of regular racism in their belief that two wrongs make a right.We are also seeing that Obama’s track record in the oval office is directly tied to Dr. Bell’s radical racism. The liberals knew this and conservatives knew if Obama’s radical past and radical racist agenda.
This vetting of Obama is aimed directly for the eyes, ears, and minds of the independant voters. It was the independants who swung the 2008 election.There are several more tapes that will be released. None will likely be a smoking gun. However, it will have the effect of Chinese water torture(drip, drip, drip, drip) and death by a thousand cuts.
The leftist media will now actively search for some of this material and release it in order to try and reason it off to stop the gashing if Obama.The rest if the country will understand what makes that man tick and what his true agenda really is.
Hope you are right, but I’m doubtful.
Did you even bother to watch Hannity and listen to what the two fellows from breitbart.com had to say?
I'm not too disappointed...still a good indictment of the media.
I'm very optimistic.
I hope you’re right.
I think this video is revealing, even though I don’t know all of the details.
Shapiro and Pollack, who are carrying the torch for Breitbart, have said there is more coming out.
Somehow, now matter what comes out about the Marxist-in-Chief, it will be ignored by most, by choice.
I dunno , I guess this pretty much proves that Obama was at Harvard, it doesn’t give any hint at his grades but at least he did show up on the campus, which is more than he can prove at Occidental and Columbia.
I can’t help but wonder how this poor mulatto kid raised by his Grandma had the money to go to 3 colleges.
I agree... this was a big NothingBurger to me. The average non-political junkie voter out there isn't gonna give a damn, IF they even see this tape.
Didn’t one of the guys Sean was interviewing say there would be more tapes released next week?
(Matt this frustration that follows isn't for you)
Enough of this sh!t! We ain't sparring here... This is an f'n fight for the future of our country!
We don't have time for our (so called) friendly media, to tease us for ratings.
HANNITY - DO YOUR DAMN JOB!
Don't whine about others hiding facts about Obama when you are doing the same damn thing! Oh, you'll give us a video tape when is suits you. F'off!
Yes, I heard him say that.
As great as these revealing videos will be, even if Obama was on video killing someone, the media would simply write it off. Hannity had a great point, too. If the last three years aren’t a smoking gun, no video will help.
WHY has no one that went to Harvard shed any light on his activities there, if he was so “important”????
It’s too little, too late. The anti-christ is one step ahead of it.
Yes, the story is that the tapes were hidden. Breitbart was in the process of vetting Obama, the way he should have been vetted in 2008. The man that Obama was protesting for, was a close associate of Rev. Wright, Obama’s Chicago minister. My guess is Breitbart would have connected all the dots for us and told us how and why this man was connected to Rev. Wright, and why Obama was defending the man.
No, no, it isn’t the guy Obama was defending was Charles Ogletree, who is tied to the New Black Panthers, the same ones who were investigated by the Holder Justice dept for voter intimidation in Philadelphia.
Glenn Beck has some of the transcript. It appears that this guy is the same one who said that he hates White people and urged killing all those cracker babies.
If this is the case, Hannity has really blown it.
No, I mis-understood, got too excited. Ogletree is the guy who hid the tape, still a friend of Obama’s. The guy on the tape is just another radical from Harvard. What it shows is that Obama is a racist, himself.
FWIW...WGBH got out in front of this this afternoon saying that they had shown this video in their Frontline special prior to the 2008 election. So they are on record saying so.
I pulled the episode from 2008 on YouTube and they show a very small portion of the tape with announcer voiceover. They do not show the entire tape nor do they carry any of Obama’s comments. The segment is intercut with several vo’s by other members of the Law Review, both left and right.
I didn’t think this, at first glance, was a big deal. But...Breitbart also had the tape of Ogletree admitting they had hidden the tape prior to the 2008 election.
I’m guessing there is a lot more and Breitbart.com is going to maintain the same strategy they used with the Acorn tapes. Let the media go on record and then drop another piece of video and let the media twist in the wind.
Something is very WRONG in the “Fourth Estate”.
WGBH is the PBS station, too.
WGBH is the PBS station, too.
Gosh, remember the day when our presidents had such wonderful credentials — many DID go to Ivy Leagues, but were on debate teams, football teams — or were West Pointers, or war veterans of some kind.
We used to elect real MEN.
I guess this could be a reflection of the fact that we don’t have a lot of real men left in society at this time, save for a few.
The first drop drips.
So would I.
That was the first thing I noticed when I saw the call letters.
VIDEO: Malcolm-X lawyer claims Black radical, Kalid Al-Mansour, helped finance Obama [to Harvard]
Obama's Benefactor: Dr. Khalid al Mansour
August 27, 2008
"Percy Sutton, NYC political icon in the African American community, tells a news reporter that Dr. Khalid al Mansour solicited favor and recommendation on behalf of Barack Hussein Obama in order to secure Barack's entry into Harvard."

whatever you do to [white people], they deserve it, God wants you to do it and thats when you cut out the nose, cut out the ears, take flesh out of their body, dont worry because God wants you to do it.
From David Horowitz's FrontPageMag.com/DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
Profile: Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour
"Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour is a Muslim lawyer and a black nationalist who made news in 2008 when it was revealed that he had been a patron of Barack Obama and had recommended the latter for admission to Harvard Law School in 1988.
Before becoming a Muslim, al-Mansour in the 1960s was named Don Warden. He was deeply involved in San Francisco Bay Area racial politics as founder of a group called the African American Association. A close personal adviser to Huey Newton and Bobby Seale, al-Mansour helped the pair establish the Black Panther Party but later broke with them when they entered coalitions with white radical groups."
Al-Mansour is an outspoken hater of the United States, Israel, and white people generally. In recent years he has accused the U.S. of plotting a genocide designed to remove 15 million black people, considered disposable, of no relevance, value or benefit to the American society. He has told fellow blacks that whatever you do to [white people], they deserve it, God wants you to do it and thats when you cut out the nose, cut out the ears, take flesh out of their body, dont worry because God wants you to do it. Alleging further that Palestinians in Israel are being brutalized like savages, he accuses the Jews of stealing the land the same way the Christians stole the land from the Indians in America.

If the above should 'disappear', try this link:
Very public rewards should be posted to people who went to school with him, that have credible (if not incredible) inside information, written documents, videos/tapes, flyers, etc, anything at all, to tie him to Marxist-Leninist or black panther/black separatist type activity, which I am sure, if you dig under the surface is just waiting there to be found wrapped tightly all round his entire World of Saul Alinsky. Tapes and photos are the best. They must necessarily exist. There should be a value put on them. Of course, at the end of the day, the question would be, “do Americans care or even give two farts about whether they are enslaved under the Tyranny of Ameritopia or not?”
