    Time For Obama’s ‘Fiercely Patriotic’ Marxist Mentor Derrick Bell David Swindle March 10, 2012 At Time yesterday, Sally Kohn defended the antisemitic activist Derrick Bell using two textbook Alinskyite tactics: Derrick Bell was one of the first legal scholars to talk about race in America. The median net worth of white households in the United States is 20 times that of black households. Black students in our nation’s public schools are three and a half times more likely to be suspended or expelled than their white peers. Black rates of unemployment have been consistently double the rates of white unemployment...

    In this discussion, Hannity seems to move away from Sowell's argument that Obama being associated with these people has to do with race. Hannity claims it's ideological for Obama. It happens at 6:20 in the clip.

    The leftist media are saying about Bell and Obama, “So what? We were are a little ‘radical’ in college”. However the truth of the video and of Bell’s relationship with Obama is important as it’s merely one of the parts of a mosaic that makes who Barack Obama is. We’re all like that. I’ve been influenced in many ways from everyone from Frank Zappa to Ronald Reagan, and that exposure IS part of who I am today. It’s unavoidable to not have those who influenced you through not be a part of who you are today.When you connect the dots,...

    One of the more common spins by the mainstream media about the now-famous Derrick Bell video is that the rally was for more diversity on the Harvard Law campus. This is wrong. In fact, Bell and Obama were demanding special treatment for Regina Austin, a radical black law professor with poor credentials—she lacked the usual Supreme Court clerkships or law-review appointments—necessary for the position. Bell and Obama demanded that Harvard violate its longstanding policy about not voting on tenure track positions to visiting professors.Don’t take my word for it. Take Derrick Bell’s. He granted that Austin lacked the proper credentials...
  • Wikipedia Editing War Erupts Over Obama's Connection to Radical Derrick Bell

    In light of video surfacing this week showing President Barack Obama fully embracing radical Harvard Professor Derrick Bell, the man who said he lived to "harass white folks," an editing war on the Derrick Bell Wikipedia page has erupted. It looks as though editors are arguing about whether or not to even mention Obama's affiliation with Bell, despite evidence showing that the two were closely connected. It also looks like the page was set as "protected" at one point to avoid controversy. Notice the editing war started on the evening of March 7, just after the connect between Bell and...

    Bias: We were wrong. The media elite did in fact vet this president, but they covered up what they found. And now that citizen journalists are digging it up, they're trying to rebury it. Exhibit A is the controversial video of Barack Obama praising and hugging radical Harvard law professor Derrick Bell. The media knew it existed four years ago and conspired with academia to hide it to get Obama elected. "We hid this during the 2008 campaign," confessed Harvard law professor Charles Ogletree. PBS had it then, but cut both the audio and the hug in a report on...

    The revelation of the relationship between President Barack Obama and the late Critical Race Theory professor Derrick Bell sheds light not only on Obama’s past beliefs, but his present governing philosophy, particularly at the Department of Justice. It is interesting, for example, to reconsider Attorney General Eric Holder’s incendiary statement in 2009 that America is a “nation of cowards” with a view towards the influence of Bell’s ideas on Obama's cohort of left-wing legal minds. In his speech, Holder expressed a brazen skepticism of the concept of America as a “melting pot,” seeing that as a form of self-deception. Despite...

    The controversy over the videotape of Harvard Law School student Barack Obama speaking in support of his professor Derrick Bell during Bell’s one-man 1990 uprising against the law school’s 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? We’re to pretend our history cleansed? He fought 4 Civil Rights in Mississippi.” It is incumbent on Powell and others, if...

    My own interest in the reparations movement started in the 1970’s when my teacher and mentor at Stanford, Dr. St. Clair Drake, arranged for me to attend the Sixth Pan-African Conference in Dar es Salem, Tanzania. These conferences were held to focus on efforts to end colonial rule in Africa and to promote economic and political development within the African nations. I traveled as part of a delegation of over two hundred African Americans, but the member of our delegation who had an enormous impact on me was Audrey Moore, affectionately known as “Queen Mother Moore.” Viewed by many as...

    The leader of the occupation in the video — Robert L. Wilkins of the Harvard Black Law Students Association — was nominated by President Obama on May 20, 2010 to be considered for judge of the U.S. District Court, District of Columbia. He is now a sitting judge in that position. (snip)Not mentioned in the press release: that Wilkins once led an illegal occupation of a law school building to demand the school hire based on skin color, a protest primarily focused on supporting the actions of radical bigot Derrick Bell.

    American Pundit ^ | March 9, 2012 | Stephan Tawney
    Derrick Bell, the radical left-wing professor with whom Barack Obama developed a long association, once admitted during a television interview that he, “lives to harass white folks”. Video emerged the other day of Obama as a law school student embracing Bell’s teachings on Critical Race Theory, the idea that the American political and justice systems are inherently racist. Obama says in the video, “Open your hearts and open your minds to the words of Prof. Derrick Bell,” before physically embracing Bell. White House records show Bell repeatedly visited Obama in 2010.

    In the version dated January 31, 2012, the words "white supremacy" and "racial power" appear. Although no set of canonical doctrines or methodologies defines CRT, the movement is loosely unified by two common areas of inquiry. First, CRT has analyzed the way in which white supremacy and racial power are reproduced over time, and in particular, the role that law plays in this process. (Emphasis added.) However, the current version states the following: Although no set of canonical doctrines or methodologies defines CRT, the movement is loosely unified by two common areas of inquiry.

    I hadn’t planned on posting more of the Morning Jolt today, but the video from Obama’s Harvard days seems to be the big story of the morning. It becomes the big story when CNN’s morning program features an old sitcom-actor-turned-pundit Jay Thomas suggesting that Breitbart.com editor-in-chief Joel Pollak is a racist for making a point about Barack Obama’s support for a proponent of “critical race theory” during his days at Harvard Law School. Unbeknownst to Thomas, Pollak’s wife is black. Breitbart.com also has footage of Prof. Charles Ogletree showing the 1991 video of Obama to an audience and saying with...

    Via Lachlan Markay at Heritage, we learn a Derrick A. Bell visited the Obama White House twice in 2010. The White House did not return a request for comment. The visits were on 1/29/2010, a Friday, and 1/31/2010, a Sunday. For now, a web search of news reports did not turn up why Bell may have been in Washington that particular weekend. Heritage could not independently confirm that the Derrick A. Bell listed is the same individual who spoke at the rally. The White House did not return a request for comment.
