    Time For Obama¬ís ¬ĎFiercely Patriotic¬í 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¬ís public schools are three and a half times more likely to be suspended or expelled than their white peers.

    Barack Obama to Khalid Muhammad: Two Degrees of Separation 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 released a few days ago, he urged his listeners to open their hearts and minds to Bellís teachings. So, what were Bellís 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, ďWe should really appreciate the Louis Farrakhans and the Khalid Muhammads while weíve got them.Ē...

    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 credentialsóshe lacked the usual Supreme Court clerkships or law-review appointmentsónecessary for the position. Bell and Obama demanded that Harvard violate its longstanding policy about not voting on tenure track positions to visiting professors.Donít take my word for it. Take Derrick Bellís. He granted that Austin lacked the proper credentials...

    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 Obamaís past beliefs, but his present governing philosophy, particularly at the Department of Justice. It is interesting, for example, to reconsider Attorney General Eric Holderís incendiary statement in 2009 that America is a ďnation of cowardsĒ with a view towards the influence of Bellís 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 ďmelting pot,Ē 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 Bellís one-man 1990 uprising against the law schoolís 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.

    Nearly every single Obama biographer and profiler has mentioned the contentious racial climate of Harvard Law School during the time that Obama was president of the Harvard Law Review. Some have even mentioned the speech that Obama gave at a protest where he literally embraced Bell. Yet none, seemingly, bothered to track down and report on the content of the speech itself--or on Bell's radical ideas. A PBS election special in 2008 showed footage of the protest but dubbed over critical portions of Obama's speech in which he endorsed Bell. A selectively edited clip released by Buzzfeed yesterday included...

    The web is abuzz today about video of a speech Barack Obama gave in 1990 (some reports have incorrectly identified the speech as occurring in 1991) at Harvard Law School defending the actions of Professor Derrick Bell. Bell, the law schoolís first tenured black professor, had protested Harvardís failure to offer tenure to women of color as law school professors. Online publisher Andrew Brietbart, who died last week, had said he possessed the speech and hinted that he would release it, arguing that it provided evidence that Obama has long held radical political beliefs.

Wrightís sermons Ė or sermon snippets Ė played over and over again, has spoken out about racial difference and anger and the need to get beyond it in order to address effectively the serious problems that face us all.
