    President Barack Obama’s administration has quietly suggested it is willing to create a two-tier race-based legal system in Hawaii, where one set of taxes, spending and law enforcement will govern one race, and the second set of laws will govern every other race.

    Professor Admits Hiding Obama College Video By Todd Starnes Harvard University Law School professor Charles Ogletree admitted that he hid controversial video footage featuring a college-age President Obama speaking at a campus rally in support of a radical professor. "I hid this during the 2008 campaign," Ogletree said in the video. "I don't care if they find it now." The entire video was aired exclusively on Hannity by Breitbart.com editor-in-chief Joel Pollak and contributor Ben Shapiro. The unedited video shows Obama speaking at a 1991 rally for Professor Derrick Bell. Bell has been described as the Jeremiah Wright of academia....

    Race Theory professor Derrick Bell did not end after Harvard Law School--and certainly not at the April 24, 1990 rally at which Obama embraced Bell, literally and figuratively. Breitbart News has discovered a letter sent by Obama to Bell in February 1995 in which Obama asks Bell to review--and to blurb--an early version of Obama’s autobiography, then entitled Dreams of My Father. The letter is preserved in the archives of New York University, to which Bell donated his papers. The archives--which are open to the public--include Bell’s papers from decades of research, writing, teaching, and speaking. The website for the...

    Valerie Jarrett is not only one of President Barack Obama’s closest advisors; she also is one of the most radical, with close connections to the Chicago left that nurtured Obama in his early political career. The Iranian-born Jarrett (her parents were American expatriates) found a foothold in Chicago politics through her marriage to Dr. William Robert Jarrett, whose father Vernon held sway as a columnist on the Chicago Sun-Times--for a time, the city’s only major black columnist. In 1991, Vernon Jarrett enthusiastically promoted a Chicago visit by professor Derrick Bell, who was still on voluntary unpaid leave from Harvard Law...

    American Thinker ^ | 03/22/2012 | By John T. Bennett
    When asked by CNN's Soledad O'Brien about the definition of critical race theory (CRT), Emory Law Professor Dorothy Brown offered the following: "Critical race theory seeks to explain judicial decisions by asking the question, What does race have to do with it?" CRT simply "looks at race in America," professor Brown stated. That's a bit like saying that a religious zealot just "looks at" theology. Critical race theorists do not merely look at racial questions. Like zealots, they give answers; they preach a doctrine, seek converts, and condemn nonbelievers. Indeed, CRT is the primary source of Orwellian "hate speech" proposals....

    More information has emerged that Obama not only supported Critical Race Theory, but he assigned books on it as a lecturer [@ Univ of Chic]. To understand where CRT comes from, you must know a little about Critical Theory. This was a plan devised by the Frankfurt School in the 1920... While most people will not recognize their names, many would recognize their handiwork. Magnus Hirschfeld was a leading homosexual rights activist in Germany in the 1920s. It was Hirschfeld who first coined the attack phrase “racist.” He wrote an entire book in 1930 describing how to use the word...

    Obama sycophant Soledad O'Brien got into a tussle with Joel Pollak of Breitbart.com and had her head handed to her as she tried desperately to dissuade viewers of the truth- that Barack Obama was heavily influenced by the radical Bell. In her conversation with Pollak she at first appeared not to know what Critical Race Theory actually was while at the same time she was sure Pollak was wrong. From somewhere she came up with a definition that happened to be curiously similar to the one found in Wikipedia. Soon after the Wikipedia page for CRT was changed repeatedly and...

The play comes back to me now as do Genet's words, because in my recollection of that production and rereading of Genet's work half a century later it occurs to me that his play is a forerunner of Critical Race Theory, a racialist concept at total odds with American principles and ideals , a concept unfortunately at the very heart of our President and his administration. At its very core CRT...

    Newly surfaced footage shows a young woman who appears to be Michelle Obama, and several other students, staging a sit-in in the Harvard Law School dean’s office in 1988. According to J. Christian Adams of Pajamas Media, the video depicts the students — including the woman who appears to be Mrs. Obama — conducting a protest to “solve the minority faculty problem,” as one student puts it, by implementing race-based hiring practices. President Obama’s time at Harvard Law has received fresh scrutiny lately, including new attention on relationship with Derrick Bell, the first tenured black law professor at Harvard and...

    There is such a thing as honor. And when the honor of a great man is attacked, there must be a response. Professor Derrick Bell, who passed away last October, was a great man. His legacy to the legal profession, to civil rights law and thinking, to legal scholarship, to the hundreds of students he taught and the scores of black leaders, academics and activists he mentored, cannot be calculated. He refused to compromise with racism by studying it, resisting it and showing us how to build a life filled with joy, humor and integrity, while wrestling with our nation's...

    Breitbart.com ^ | 3/15/2012 | Charles C. Johnson
    The story of Cassandra Butts is an important example of how Critical Race Theory and its adherents continue to shape President Barack Obama's worldview and his administration. At Harvard Law School from 1988-1991, Butts was one of the student advocates of Professor Derrick Bell’s strike for "faculty diversity." She was also a fast friend of Obama’s, whose career she has helped to promote from the halls of the Harvard Law Review to the White House. Her role in the Obama White House is not a mystery. Rep. Harold Ford Jr. noted on MSNBC on January 22, 2009--shortly after Obama's inauguration--that...

    In partial fulfillment of Andrew Breitbart's promise to "vet" the President this time, the Breitbart.com team posted a video of President Barack Obama as a law student at Harvard. It also ran on Hannity tonight. The video shows the young Obama asking his fellow law students to "Open up your hearts and your minds to the words of Professor Derrick Bell." Professor Derrick Bell, the object of young Obama's adoration, was an associate of Reverend Jeremiah Wright and a committed radical. Bell was a proponent of Critical Race Theory, which views virtually all relationships through a lens of perceived race-based...

There is, of course, more to Breitbart's venture into battle against those who would trash his country.

Some larger force — perhaps historical — was behind this....

    So, what does CRT believe? In their primer, Critical Race Theory, Richard Delgado (one of the movement’s founders) and Jean Stefancic set out some basic principles: 1. “Racism is ordinary, not aberrational”; 2. “Our system of white-over-color ascendancy serves important purposes, both psychic and material.” When taken together, these principles have serious ramifications. First, they suggest that legal rules that stand for equal treatment under law – i.e. the 14th Amendment – can remedy “only the most blatant forms of discrimination.” The system is too corrupted, too based on the notion of white supremacy, for equal protection of the laws...

The event was in support of Bell, who was angry over Harvard's failure to offer tenure to black professors. Obama is seen embracing Bell, described by Pollak as the "Jeremiah Wright of academia." What do you think of the video? It will hurt Obama and propels the notion that he's a radical. 22% What a joke. Nothing note-worthy happens in the video. 72% I don't know. 5%

    Because Derrick Bell lives on in Barack Obama. Bell was Obama's ideological mentor. Compare the following excerpts: Bell believe that the US Constitution was a form of original sin.Bell: At the nation's beginning, the framers saw more clearly than is perhaps possible in our more enlightened and infinitely more complex time the essential need to accept what has become the American contradiction. The framers made a conscious, though unspoken, sacrifice of the rights of some in the belief that this forfeiture was necessary to secure the rights of others in a society embracing, as its fundamental principle, the equality...
  • Farrakhan at UC Berkeley: 'This is what you call an education in white supremacy'

    Amid controversy, Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, delivered a lecture at the University of California, Berkeley. During Saturday's speech, Farrakhan made a number of anti-semetic and racist remarks. Farrakhan told the audience that they "like to sugarcoat things so you can get along with your former slave masters . . . This is what you call an education in white supremacy. So when you come out, you come out bowing to them." He later adopted a fake Asian accent (see video below), mocking their race, saying "Can you imagine Ching Lee Joong with a picket sign?

    “History proves that the white man is a devil,” said Malcolm X. “Whites are liars,” said Jeremiah Wright. “I love to harass white folks,” said Derrick Bell. “This is what you deserve. You get what you deserve, white boy,” a black teenager said to Allen Coon, a white student on the porch of his own home, as he set him on fire. “Don’ tell me words don’t matter,” Obama once said. And he was right. Words do matter. The words of his mentors that have rooted hate so deep in the black community that it has become a cancer, a...

    In November 1985, the Harvard Law Review published an article by Derrick Bell that was a "classic" in the development of Critical Race Theory. The article was edited by then-student Elena Kagan, and was cited by Prof. Charles Ogletree in support of her nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court by President Barack Obama in 2010. The article makes clear that Critical Race Theory sees the U.S. Constitution as a form of "original sin"--a view later embraced by Obama as a state legislator, and reflected in his actions and appointments. The following is an excerpt from the non-fiction portion of the...

    I posted a clip from Derrick Bell last week which included some pretty obvious Marxist undertones, but this…this is like a Marxism primer. CUNY TV in New York has curiously pulled a video clip of this down from their site, and YouTube, but c’mon, you know that’s not going to stop me. From 2007: (Full source MP3 available here.) But I thought according to Soledad O’Brien, Critical Race Theory was just about the intersection of race and politics and stuff? On a related note, does this (pdf) remind of you anyone? The empathethic perspective also comes from the Critical Race...

    The story of Purim is found in the Book of Esther, a long, detailed story known as the "Megillah." In Yiddish, the term "Ganza Megillah" has a number of meanings -- usually a long story -- which is how I am using it now. This week was Purim, the start of the post-mortem releases of the Breitbart tapes on Obama. This is the beginning of the Breitbart effort to force the first open media focus on the racism at the heart of so called Critical Race Studies and an honest examination of who Obama really is. I think all three...

    Whether or not it was the bombshell many hoped it would be, footage emerged last week — most notably on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity” – from a 1991 speech by then-Harvard Law School student Barack Obama, asking an audience to “open [their] hearts and minds” to the controversial Harvard professor and Derrick Bell. That footage included an embrace between Bell and Obama in a portion that was cut out of the PBS “Frontline” documentary called “The Choice 2008.” Some have made the case that that editing was proof of a media campaign to protect then-Democratic presidential nominee Obama and hide...

    Or, why Soledad O'Brien is so desperate to quash this story Not long before he passed away, Andrew Breitbart promised a proper vetting of Barack Obama. It began with the publication of the "The Love Song of Saul Alinsky" post at Breitbart.com. Obama was among several left wing radical panelists to speak following the 1998 play. It seems that a video of the discussion exists but the director of the play has declared “There is only one archive tape of the play and I have it,” Dickler informed our source. “It is not in Chicago.” Dickler told our source that...

    John Podhoretz and Patterico highlight a close connection between Barack Obama and Khalid Muhammad. Obama, as we know, was a disciple of Derrick Bell; in the video that Breitbart.com released a few days ago, he urged his listeners to open their hearts and minds to Bell’s teachings. So, what were Bell’s teachings? Bell was a fervent admirer of Louis Farrakhan and Khalid Muhammad of the Nation of Islam. Podhoretz quotes a 1994 interview in which Bell said, “We should really appreciate the Louis Farrakhans and the Khalid Muhammads while we’ve got them.” Our readers are well aware of the repellent...
