Posted on 03/08/2012 8:26:22 PM PST by Do Not Make Fun Of His Ears

This morning during her panel discussion on the Obama tape and Derrick Bell, Soledad O'Brien lost control of her show and became very upset towards Breitbart.com's Joel Pollack.

The reason why wasn't disclosed: O'Brien was a huge fan of Derrick Bell.

Soledad:
“Just started re-reading Derrick Bell’s ‘Ethical Ambition’”

umm... what if some other media figure “tweeted” something about reading some other screed that was obviously racist?
Say, “Turner Diaries”?

Seriously. Radical black race hatred is OK for some reason?

THANK YOU! I suspected that there had to be one.

BTW, was it JA 1 or 2?

I know nothing about this woman, don’t watch cable news junk, so the Pollac video is the first I have ever seen of her, and by that video it is abundantly clear she is not remotely objective or thinking and frankly an arrogant ass.

The Amy girl on the Panel got it, this woman had no interest, just trying to dismiss and debunk the guy because she didn’t like what he had to say, she clearly misrepresented theory and other things.

IF this is a news reporter, news sure as hell isn’t being reported.

Soledad is an idiot who does and says exactly what she is told. She tried to sound smart by repeating what was said into her ear. He totally schooled her for her stupidity, ignorance and racism.

The black woman on the panel (“Amy” whatever) was very fair and accurate in her attack on the mainstream media.

My one serious question is this – WHY was Jay Thomas on that panel. He’s a mediocre actor and stand-up comedian that cannot get any acting or stand-up gigs. The HIGHLIGHT of his career was playing the owner of the “Big Apple Deli” on “Mork and Mindy”. He hasn’t done squat since that show went off the air in the early `80s. This buffoon is on CNN talking about race theory and politics against an educated mind? He looked and sounded as stupid as his career as a stand-up comedian has actually been. He makes the majority of his money now doing voice-overs for commercials. In effect, he gets paid to read words other people put into his mouth. He does not earn a living for actively thinking on his own.

Maybe they can book him to speak at a national brain surgeons convention to opone upon complex surgical procedures. He as qualified to do that as he is to speak to theories of racial justice on CNN. “I’m just looking at your skin - as a white guy.” Pure intellectual brilliance there Jay. I’m stunned and overwhelmed by the depth of your critical thinking and analytical skills. My dog sounds smarter than you when he farts.

Both.

Believe it or not, there was a time that Harvard was pretty conservative. Granted, that was like before 1845 . . .

"Soledad O'Brien lost control of her show."

I disagree with the characterization that she "lost" control of her show. She "abdicated" control of her show. She turned into an incoherent raving lunatic, causing her to forfeit control of her show.

I'll have to admit, though, that I have never seen her show before. Thus, I cannot ascertain that she might ALWAYS be an incoherent raving lunatic.

Hey man, he also played Eddie LeBec, Carla's ex-husband and an ex-Boston Bruins goalie on Cheers.

Dude's obviously qualified to talk politics.

You have to wonder why an Irish-Cuban woman would get so emotionally involved in Black victimhood politics. Must have been picked on as a child.

Picked on as a child. Ripe for the picking for the radicals infesting college campuses.

She’s outed herself now. Any credibility gone.

“You don’t. You just have to be smart/connected/fit the demographic/wealthy enough to get in. I know plenty o’ Harvard grads who have told me this point blank.”

They told you the truth.

Despite Ms. O'Brien's assertion that Critical Race Theory rejects white supremacy, here's what another "esteemed" Harvard professor, Cornel West, wrote in the introduction to Critical Race Theory: Key Writings That Formed the Movement (1995):

“This comprehensive movement in thought and life – created primarily, though not exclusively, by progressive intellectuals of color – compels us to confront critically the most explosive issue in American civilization: the historical centrality and complicity of law in upholding white supremacy…

Also, actor Jay Thomas' pathetic accusations of white racism didn't trouble Joel Pollak; Mr. Pollak's wife is black. She’s from South Africa and her mother was a political appointee of none other than Nelson Mandela.

Some racist.

Joel Pollak did Andrew breitbart proud - and it’s only just begun. Let them vet the whole MSM! Yes we can!!!

yep they tied a shotgun to the judges throat and later killed him in the police battle

and Cleaver...who later sorta reformed..wrote Soledad Brother (i think)

with Obama...I think his mom was a radical from a sorta radical family and was a pioneer in very very early black white couplings at a very young age with a married man

or given her plain-ness her options were thus limited

and Obama grew up in a radical charged environment and we know it and the media knew it

and ignored it because they sympathize it

it's tuff to be half black and half white...I will give Soledad and Bro that much...it's just harder than defacto belonging to one race...no matter what platitudes folks spout about it

my daughters are technically half latino-maronite and half southern-saxon-celtic and even they get a bit conflicted just by self image alone...one swarthier, the other more "gringa"

Obama settled down eventually into a black identity

It’s all an act. Did he hang around with blacks? NO, college all pics are with whites. He USED the blacks, but his close friends were white.

This could cost her. She’s extremely annoying anyway. Can’t take more than 1 minute of her patronizing personality. Hope she gets the boot! She can always go over to The View.

The vanity of Liberal TV personalities likely hides a variety of insecurities, some perhaps carried over from childhood. Hence, Liberal.

I seldom write as I did yesterday. For me the more reason to vote in Novemeber despite some less then preferred choices that may have to be made.

This explains why she didn't see a problem with Bell's racist hatred. She's one with it..

We're charmed CNN - maybe this kind of stuff is why few citizens trust CNN...

“Boycott her sponsors!”


Who are her sponsors?

Boycott them? It goes both ways.

Boycott them...I’m in!
