The Vetting: CNN Implodes Over Breitbart's Obama/Bell Video
Breitbart ^ | 03-08-2012

Posted on 03/08/2012 6:54:43 PM PST by AAABEST

Video.

I have never seen a guy so masterfully shred an entire panel of lefties the way Pollak does here.

If you're on the Maobama/Bell story it's a must see. Nearly 1,500 comments at the link.

Wow, ole Soledad sure got her a$$ kicked, now didn’t she?

She had it alll figgered out —tell him he doesn’t understand Critical Race Theory, and then just have him move on, figuring the audience would take her word for it. But he called her on it, and didn’t give up, and didn’t get flustered AT ALL.

This guy is great!!!

You notice they way suddenly the white guy had to jump in, to try and save her? And lickety-split he, too, got torpedoed.

This Pollac guy —looking forward to more of him.

They were flustered and dazed.

Soledad: “He said he had a bombshell videotape that would damage the president (sic)”

Guy in background: “Then he died!”

Sure sounded like this guy was drawing a causal connection, to which Soledad said “Yeah!”

O’Brien is a B!tch. The white dude (can’t recall his name, I only know he’s a washed up, hasbeen former hollyweird “actor) is a complete moron. The African American woman was the only one at the studio who showed any intelligence other than Pollak.

What a bleeping ditz - the playground bullyboy/girl tactics didn't quite work with Pollak - he's made of steel.

Great clip. It looks like Breitbart left his organization in some capable hands.

To you democrats: If you have confidence in the integrity of your beliefs and the integrity of your candidates, you will not take information and try to hide it away.

You will not try to cover it up!

I don’t get audio with the CNN video. An ad plays ok with audio and video beforehand, but there’s no audio for the main clip, at least on my system. Tried it twice...

Man, he tore them up!!

Sean Hannity aired part of this today on his show. But the whole segment is devastating.

I’m glad to see that Andrew left his legacy in such good hands.

Exactly. Hiding information, or fudging it (as in the case of the global warming alarmists) is prima facie evidence that your position is wrong.

O’Brien is appallingly stupid. Just watch her concentrate as she tries to remember a lame definition of “Critical Race Theory” and then just babbles on and on. The white dude that jumped in to save her is equally ignorant. They are perfect caricatures of what we are up against.

Good post over at PJ Media re: Elena Kagen.
http://www.essence.com/2010/05/13/dr-ogletree-charles-elena-kagan/

ESSENCE.com: What do you think of Elena Kagan as the President’s Supreme Court pick?
CHARLES OGLETREE: I think Elena Kagan is a superb nominee. I started my teaching career at Harvard Law School in 1985, when she was a student there. I watched her work as an editor on the Harvard Law Review, and saw the phenomenal edits she did on a classic article by Professor Derrick Bell, the first African-American to receive tenure at Harvard Law School, that addressed civil rights in the Constitution.

The real bottom line here is, as Breitbart said, The Vetting of Obama.

It drives the left mad if this election is about Obama.

That’s the key.

This election is about Obama.

She was concentrating because they were giving her the definition in her earpiece, which is why it came out all garbled when she regurgitated it. She wouldn't know "CRT" from crap if they were each spread on a cracker and fed to her.

My prof at CSULB for “Multiculturalism” was Ron Karenga, of Kwanzaa fame. He took a whole day talking about CRT and Bell and quite a few students walked out when Karenga said “Racism can never really be solved because of all the oppression white folk has caused on the black community.”

Someone should have made a remark about the Barbary Corsairs and the 1.5 million “white folk” they put into slavery, but NAAAAH.

That there’s a Porterhouse. Thank you.

It was nauseating and hysterical to watch Soledad try to revert to the Oprah finger-wagging upper hand and get her ass
handed back to her not only by Pollak but by that sharp, beautiful black girl (is she on our side? If not, why NOT? Who is she?)

Exhibit 1 in ripping the rug out from under the rootless Democrat Media Complex. They’re as rugged as rice plants. Mow ‘em down.

Great going.

The other key thing about Pollack’s response is that it further exposed the media, and the one thing I wish Pollack had said, when asked what was yet to come, would have been a response that as more and more Obama background information was released, the public would see more and more how desperately toadies like the CNN personalities would work to protect him.

For example, when Pollack castigated the Harvard guy for his legal theories, Soledad O’Brien didn’t ask Pollack how those theories were different from other legal approaches, or why they were abhorrent - she overtly jumped in to defend them (and by inference, Obama for supporting them).

If you read Brietbart’s book, one of his major goals - perhaps THE main goal - was to expose the complicity and dishonesty of the media in foisting liberal horse manure on the country. Pollack did a great job doing so - he just needed to call them out on it explicitly.

By the way, I read on another thread that Pollack’s wife is black. Some racist, huh?

The gal who brought up that the video had not been shown in its entirety was the one with the sense to realize that something is wrong if the media dutifully hides what Obama wanted to be hidden - like his whole life’s story and everything he’s about.

Watching this video makes me really glad we don’t have cable and never watch TV. My blood pressure couldn’t handle having to deal with brainless airheads who obviously think they’re hot snot on a silver platter (when really a cold booger on a paper plate. lol)

I think the best thing in the world would be if people just realized that life is too short to waste on listening to idiots. Turn off the tube and get rid of some of the air pollution all around - the sulfurous stench of dog-breath liars.

Oh, she knows...she just doesn't want YOU to know she knows.

I read on another thread that she tweeted about Bell to honor him on the day he died...and another about "re-reading one of his books".

She's gobbled up the CRT cracker and wants to serve her audience the one with the crap.

That's what Hannity said on his radio show today. He also said they (various conservatives, not just Breitbart) were going to keep vetting Obama right up until election day.

The term is black. Please don't call us that hyphenated-American term. Leftists invented that term to drive a wedge between us and other Americans.

Brietbart lives in Pollard. He didn’t take the bait and explained exactly what this Black racist was about and why Obama is a racist too.

Soledad is a moron who tried all the cheap tactics and failed.

Any time I hear “critical” and “theory” in any combination, I have the same response. Frankfurt School claptrap, aka Marxist double speak. Bell was too dim to make good hay with that Euro/Marx crap and instead threw fits when folks did not bow down to him and his glorious dimwit notions. But he did give us a masterwork about alien traders...what a tool...
