The first of Breitbart's Obama college tapes

Before his sudden death on March 1, Andrew Breitbart was doing the job that the media failed to do in 2008 — investigating Obama.
Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington last month, Breitbart said he had obtained videos of Obama from his college days, which will reveal Barry during a time when he was meeting a “bunch of silver ponytails” — referring to Weather Underground terror group members Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. It was in the couple’s Chicago home that Obama’s political career reportedly was launched, and his ties to the two run deep. There’s been a solid argument made that Ayers ghost-wrote Obama’s highly acclaimed memoir, “Dreams from My Father.”
Breitbart vowed: “I’ve got videos – this election we’re going to vet him – from his college days to show you why … racial division and class warfare are central to what hope and change was sold in 2008.”
Breitbart.com will be releasing one of Obama’s college videos — the one at Harvard Law School — this evening on Sean Hannity’s TV show.
Earlier today, however, video researcher Andrew Kaczynski released an edited version of the video. Joel Pollak issued this announcement on Breitbart.com, March 7, 2012, that Kaczynski’s video was “licensed from a Boston television station” and has been selectively edited–either by the Boston television station or by Buzzfeed itself.
The video shows a young, already arrogant Barack Obama leading a protest at Harvard Law School on behalf of Prof. Derrick Bell, whom Breitbart.com calls “a radical academic tied to Jeremiah Wright” and about whom Breitbart.com “will be releasing significant information in the coming hours.”

This is what Wikipedia says about Derrick Bell [edited]:

Derrick Albert Bell, Jr. (November 6, 1930 – October 5, 2011)was the first tenured African-American professor of Law at Harvard University, and largely credited as the originator of Critical Race Theory.

Bell received an A.B. from Duquesne University in 1952 and an LL.B. from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law in 1957. After graduation, Bell took a position with the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Justice Department, followed by a stint as an assistant counsel for the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, crafting legal strategies at the forefront of the battle to undo racist laws and segregation in schools.

In 1969, with the help of protests from black Harvard Law School students for a minority faculty member, Bell was hired to teach there. At Harvard, Bell established a new course in civil rights law, published a celebrated case book, Race, Racism and American Law, and produced a steady stream of law review articles.

In 1986, Bell staged a five-day sit-in in his office to protest the school’s failure to grant tenure to two legal scholars on staff, both of whom adhered to a movement in legal philosophy that claims legal institutions play a role in the maintenance of the ruling class’ position. The administration, not giving an inch, claimed substandard scholarship and teaching on the part of the professors as the reason for the denial of tenure, but Bell called it an unambiguous attack on ideology. Bell’s sit-in galvanized student support but sharply divided the faculty.

Bell reentered the debate over hiring practices at Harvard in 1990, when he vowed to take an unpaid leave of absence until the school appointed a female of color to its tenured faculty. Students held vigils and protests in solidarity with Bell with the support of some faculty. One of these students was U.S. president Barack Obama, who led a protest at Harvard Law School on behalf of Bell. Critics, including some faculty members, called Bell’s methods counterproductive, and Harvard administration officials insisted they had already made enormous advances in hiring.

To some observers, Bell’s lament about Harvard amounted to a call for the school to lower its academic qualifications in the quest to mold a diversified faculty on the campus.

Bell is arguably the most influential source of thought critical of traditional civil rights discourse.

In the 2008 presidential campaign, the media trumpeted Barack Obama as a “post-racial” president-to-be who will heal America’s racial wounds and division. This video from his Harvard Law School days shows that, far from being “post-racial,” Obama actually had cut his teeth on precisely  racialist political activism.

Update (March 9, 2012):

For a better description of Derrick Bell’s beliefs, see my post “Obama praised a rabid black racist.” Bell was nothing less than a virulent racist who wanted a race war.

  1. Skippy is the farthest from post-racial…every black “leader” he’s associated with is a radical in some way or another.
    Hope Breitbart.com keeps the vids coming!

     
  2. “Bell reentered the debate over hiring practices at Harvard in 1990, when he vowed to take an unpaid leave of absence until the school appointed a female of color to its tenured faculty.”
    Pardon me, but is this the moment when ‘race’ replaced merit as the criterion for appointment? If so, then we have begun a bad trip down a road whose destination is self-destruction, and Darwinian stupidity reigns supreme here!

     
    • You got it, Joseph!
      In my former university (I’m now retired), one day my department was just told by administration that a new faculty member would be joining us — without a national ad, without a search being conducted, without a Search Committee being formed, without screening or interviews, and without the department even being consulted or informed. When Fall semester began, we had one more faculty member, at the rank of Assistant Professor, which means he was tenure track.
      He was black, of course. Let’s call him J.A.
      He lasted a year. He leered at me (I’m married!), at the department secretary, and at female students. He verbally sexually harassed some female students and sent a letter to one, inviting her to take a ride with him “on his motorcycle”. He befriended another department faculty member, a female who’s a big liberal. Lets call her L.W. When the student came to us with her complaints that JA sexually harassed her, LW told me outright: “This pains me. I love him like my brother. I’ll have to exempt myself from this.” So I took the student’s complaints to the dean of my college (Arts & Science), who’s a female, and an out lesbian.
      The university investigated the matter. An attorney was hired to interview people, including me. JA was removed from teaching for a year, but received a full salary and benefits for that whole year, in return for leaving.
      That’s the legacy of Derrick Bell.

       
  3. I hate to say this, but the tape was a disappointment to me. The average “Joe”, who pays little or no attention to anything more compilcated than American Idol or Bridezillas will see nothing here. I realize that there is somethingg here, but people will have to search it’s roots.

     
  4. The tape itself is ambiguous enough but its relevance lies in Bell’s history and his agenda. Hopefully there are more tapes and I would prefer they were just released to youtube rather than edited for the media. We are still waiting for the tape of Mr. soetero speaking on behalf of Hamas and the Palestinians that the LA times squelched.

     
  5. Thank you, as always, Dr. Eowyn, for your thorough and precise research exposing more of the truth about Obama. I also find noteworthy the timing of Breitbart’s tapes being disclosed, and his death.

     
  6. I posted the following over at NB, but it fits here as well:
    Someone please tell me the Breitbart people have more than this
    We already know the Dear Ruler is a flaming, ass-on-fire, America-hating communist from Hell, but that doesn’t seem to matter to the 50% of the dumbMass sheeple electorate that will very likely vote to reelect this fraud in November.
    If they have something that even has a chance of bringing down this imposter before he has wrecked this country beyond all hope of repair, it might be a good idea to release it now, because Obama is very close to realizing his ultimate goal.
    -A lot closer than most think.

    • …makes you glad that we’re a Republic instead of a democracy
      if only congress would start acting like it….but more than half of
      them don’t realize that we’re at war . Obama is the leader of the
      enemy and the other half want to destroy our country WITH him.
      Traitors and sympathizers will have to be dealt with sooner or later.
      Obama serves the UN and the WTF bankers…and is handing our
      sovereign nation to them…..an act of war.

       
  7. true americans better open thier eyes and ears to the truth, obama is trying to
    destroy this great country!!! he must be and will be voted out of office november

    is and stands for!!! stop playing games lets deal with the scum…
