Skip to comments.Derrick Bell in 1994: ‘Jewish Neoconservative Racists’
Posted on 03/09/2012 5:06:49 PM PST by Nachum
The controversy over the videotape of Harvard Law School student Barack Obama speaking in support of his professor Derrick Bell during Bells one-man 1990 uprising against the law schools failure or refusal to hire a black woman as a professor has caused a predictable back-and-forth about what it might mean for Obama to have a favorable view of Bell. Michael Powell of the New York Times reflected conventional opinion in liberal media circles when he tweeted: Derrick Bell, Radical? Were to pretend our history cleansed? He fought 4 Civil Rights in Mississippi.
It is incumbent on Powell and others, if they want to get in on the conversation about Bell, to explain what on earth is mainstream about comments he made in an eye-opening New York Observer interview published on October 10, 1994, that is not available online. Among other remarks, Bell denounced Henry Louis (Skip) Gates for writing a New York Times op-ed condemning black anti-Semitism:
I was furious. Even if everything he said was true, it was inexcusable not to mention what might have motivated blacks to feel this way, and to fail to talk about all the Jewish neoconservative racists who are undermining blacks in every way they can.
Bell went on to say, Now, that wouldnt excuse anti-Semitism, which is awful, but it would at least provide a context for this anger
It might seem nice of Bell to acknowledge the awfulness of anti-Semitism, but he didnt mean it. The very same interview began as follows: We should really appreciate the Louis Farrakhans and the Khalid Muhammads while weve got them. Khalid Muhammad was Farrakhans right hand, who made a name for himself referring to Jews as, among many other things, bloodsuckers whose father was the devil. As for Farrakhan, if you need a refresher

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Was not Derrick Bell invited to the White House a couple of times? If so this is not ancient history and obviously Obama considers him a friend.
Obama did indeed consider him a friend...
Bell was both a race pimp and a drama queen. Intellectually, he didn’t amount to much.
I just knew that there would be documentation somewhere that Obama’s pal, Prof. Bell, wrote or said something antisemitic. I’m sure there are other equally noxious quotes (written or spoken) about “the Jews” or “Jewish neocons” from the late Bell that will turn up sooner or later.
Yeah, but nobody cares and antisemitism especially coming from blacks.
They have a right to hate whites, Jews, Christians, doncha know?
>>Bell went on to say, Now, that wouldnt excuse anti-Semitism, which is awful, but it would at least provide a context for this anger
That’s just mincing words. replace “anti-Semitism” above with “racism”. Oh, the outrage THAT would result in.
They made a science-fiction short movie based on Bell’s writings:
Aliens suddenly appear on Earth offering a trade: Give us all your Black people, to be taken away, in return for riches and exotic energy technology.
This is a GREAT insight into Bell’s mind and political philosophy.
It’s.......sick. It’s evidence of illness. Many times you can see that the themes come from a person perversely YEARING for blacks to be RE-ENSLAVED.
Bell and little barry dunham serve the same father, the father of lies. Thier dead souls are exposed now, but Americans are so lost at this stage of bread and circuses that even the reality of whom is actually in power doesn’t register with We The People. But, we’re no longer the sovereigns anyway, so locka nd load. time grows short.
Wow, he was way ahead of the curve with his anti-semetic Neocon talking points. Most liberals didn’t start spouting that jive until Bush got elected 6 years later.
