OBAMA: 'Open up your hearts and your minds' to racialist prof
biggovernment.com ^ | March 7, 2012 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 03/07/2012 6:46:27 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

Below is footage of Barack Obama praising and hugging Professor Derrick Bell. It was spliced and diced by the media to avoid showing just how close Obama was to Bell. More than that, a close associate of the Obama campaign, Harvard Law School’s Professor Charles Ogletree, admitted on our exclusive tape, “We hid this throughout the 2008 campaign. I don’t care if they find it now.”

Well, we found it. And it is damaging, because Barack Obama was as close or closer to Derrick Bell than he ever was to Jeremiah Wright. Obama didn’t merely sit in the pews – or not -- for Derrick Bell. He didn’t just hang out with Derrick Bell for prayers. He said:

“Open up your hearts and your minds to the words of Professor Derrick Bell.”

If we did, here’s what we’d be opening our hearts and minds to. This is a close associate of Jeremiah Wright, a man who was quoted by Jeremiah Wright regularly. This is a man who posited that the civil rights movement was too moderate because it accepted the status quo, and believed that the entire legal and constitutional system had to be transformed in radical fashion. This is a man so extreme that, as we’ve reported, he wrote a story in 1993 in which he posited that white Americans would sell black Americans into slavery to aliens to relieve the national debt, and that Jews would go along with it.

Not much of a smoking gun, but adds to the narrative that he’s a radical and racist.

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.

I had a dream about Andrew Breitbart today. He was standing in a black suit and he said, “Damn right I’m still here. I’ll be here until my children are safe.”

And I think he will be. There is a facebook page now for 1millionBreitbarts.

Bell is also the author of a number of books and short stories, including ... "The Space Traders," a fictional story in which white Americans sell black Americans to space aliens in order to pay off the national debt.

... Bell sounds like a real lunatic.

Andrea Mitchell of MSNBC had the sissy, lispy faggot from BUZZ FEED on her news show tonight, talking about this video and they were praising "a youthful" Barack Obama for taking a stand for "racial and gender diversity". The liberal media is putting lipstick on this pig. The real truth about this video was on "Hannity" tonight. I HATE THE LIBERAL MEDIA.

“Why doesn’t Ogletree care if it comes out now? What does he think has changed?”

He doesn’t care if it is out now because all of Obama’s radical ties and his radical worldview are now in wide circulation. Everyone knows and no one cares. Obama has been safely innoculated from any additional radical associations from his past. Four years ago it could have been part of the Wright, Ayers and Dohrn narrative to help influence the election. Now? Useless. Think about it, if being associated with an unrepented communist terrorist was shrugged off why would anyone care about a Havard professor?

The only thing that will cause people to vote against Obama is their wallets. Trying to establish him as someone with radical ties is... so 2008.

For those of you on here so far that don’t think the video was anything, you sound like liberals — or you just missed the point entirely. The two key points are that Obama is head saying for everyone to open their minds and hearts to what this radical Professor Bell stood for, and that another professor and his associates hid this from the American people in2008. In the first case, it shows to those that deny it that Obama is truly a radical despite all the excuses to the contrary and is one more fact to support that opinion (if his association with Ayres and Wright wasn’t enough). And in the second case, it raises a question that if is wasn’t that bad, why did the Prof and his associates keep it from the American people in 2008. You don’t hide things if you are not ashamed of them OR that show you who you truly are, knowing that you would be rejected by the American people.

Well if FOX nixes everything then the whole exercise is useless. Imagine their ratings if they would actually air the goods on BO. That goes for any news channel. Ratings would skyrocket. I guess protecting BO at all costs is more important to them.

My opinion: they’re never going to let us actually have an election. Soros will make another run on the bank if the economy doesn’t collapse on its own, or we’ll get hit with an Iranian EMP launched from Venezuela.

When Soros made the threats to the media companies before the election - that he would annihilate them through the FCC and anti-monopoly measures after the election if they allowed anybody to report on Obama’s eligibility before the election, the assumption was that there was no way Obama could lose - even if Obama’s ineligibility was reported. Soros had to have something very, very big that he threatened them with - some reason for them to believe the threat couldn’t simply be neutered by reporting Obama’s ineligibility and keeping him from getting elected.

I suspect that he threatened another run on the bank like the one he and his communist and Islamist buddies did in Sept 2008. Bush at that time was talking like the Apocalypse would be upon us if we didn’t pass TARP - which now appears was a money laundering operation to reward mostly foreign, sharia-compliant banks that had contributed to the dem party and to ACORN. TARP was a drop in the bucket for the real toxic debt; it wasn’t that it was going to have a real effect and everybody knew it. I suspect that Soros had to pay off the people who had helped him make the run on the bank. So he threatened Bush, the media companies, the eligibility judges, Dick Cheney, etc with another run on the bank that could have destroyed the world economy and capitalism, as Bush claimed would happen.

As I’ve said, this is what I suspect. I’ve got a lot of different information that led me to believe this but there’s no way I can prove it.

It does seem to me, though, that Obama’s handlers think they are invincible at this point.

We all get your point here on FR but unless it’s pretty explosive, it means very little to people that don’t pay attention. Hopefully, the media is on notice that we aren’t letting things be covered up this time around.

Unfortunately, I must agree. If what has gone on the past 3 years isn’t enough to make someone not vote for Hussein, then nothing is—short of something like skyrocketing gas prices the week before the election.....

This is a pretty big deal. Zero hugging Derrick Bell is equivalent to Newt or Santorum hugging David Duke or Rev. Phelps of the Westboro Nutcase Church. That's why Ogletree et al. wanted to hide it during the 2008 campaign. It's just the beginning.

It may sound like "BFD" for now because the LSM has carefully managed to keep Bell's name in oblivion. He was a freakin' anti-Semitic Farrakhan apologist, worse than Rev. Wright. Thank you, Breitbart. The drip drip drip has begun.

OK, I agree. I don't quite understand what the big deal is about. It hasn't sunk in. I'm guessing it's because I don't know who Bell is. I think as time goes by, and more stuff is released, then maybe I'll be able to connect the dots and the big picture will become clearer.

It won’t change the minds of the big government client population, nor those of hard-core leftists, nor those of the anti-whitey crowd, nor the network news watchers or the zombified “The View” mouthbreathers, etc. It may not matter to anyone but those who already knew what he was to begin with. At best, we can hope it swings a few dithering independents. I understand what you’re saying, but for it to have an impact the American electorate has to know who Derrick Bell (may he rest in Hell) was, what his hateful message was, and then they have to undestand that 0bama fully endorsed it. Unfortunately, I fear that’s a task beyond the attention spans or even intellects of too many of our countrymen. In other words, we in trouble.

It shows the Democrat-Media Complex—buried stories and distorted facts - as Andrw Breitbard would say...

That's a smoking gun. Most liberals don't know how corrupt their media is... They need to hear about it.

It seems 'reporters' (if that's the modern day name for biased - one sided propagandists ... ) were unable to check out Obama's past because they were too busy hanging out in Alaska checking out Sarah Palin. Shame on them.

Hannity failed to get into details on Bell. If Hannity is going to make the association case, he needs to really get the extremism of Bell exposed. The story made innuendo, but lacked a little beef. I expected more details.

Did anyone watch the HBO video of Derrick Bell’s black exploitation “movie”? (videos available through Breitbart’s site.)

It portrayed an alien as a Ronald Reagan lookalike, who wanted to make a deal with the white administration to hand over the blacks to the aliens for something in return.

Putrid “movie” really. So putrid, it’s funny thus far.

That, in itself, should be damaging to Bath-House Barry if Bell was a hero of his.
But, Barry’s record should be the real damage to him, if only his “base” wasn’t so blind.

Yes, it’s about Dr. Bell. This is who Obama promotes and follows. The focus needs to be on Bell and does Obama still support this radical? Today his office said yes. Let’s keep asking: how? in what way?

Andrew’s point was “let the vetting begin.” Finally.

This is a very good thing. It is one more rip in the Obama mask. It is examining this unknown again, for the first time.

As Rush keeps saying: this election is about Obama.

I think that’s what everyone is missing. Was Professor Bell writing what he thought of as works of fiction? If he was involved with Louis Farrakhan he either bought into the whacko nutjob mothership crap or was part of knowingly advancing that cult; recall that Rush Limbaugh’s favorite Nation of Islam [which was anything but Islamic] true-believer? What was her name, Rita? She seriously believed there was an alien mother ship that would wipe out the UK , the joos and the USA and take all the black people aboard or some such thing.

And here’s the future President of the US all cozy and serious with dingbats.

A video of a younger Obama spouting off like “Rita” about space aliens would be pricelessly funny.
