WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT OBAMA? STILL NEARLY NOTHING
March 9, 2012
The far-left will do anything and everything possible to keep us from vetting their beloved radical. His past is still full of smoke.
We know about Barack Obama's relations with Bill Ayers only the left wants us to believe he was merely an acquaintance.
We know about Obama's America-hating, race-baiting pastor, yet the left wants us to believe that Obama wasn't in church on those many Sunday's Rev. Wright railed against everything "not black."
We know Obama is heavily funded by fat-cat Wall Street multi-millionaires and served in the White House by powerful lobbyists, despite the left telling us that they are not the bad fat-catters (like the right-wing Koch Brothers) nor are the lobbyists still applying their trade.
But what about Barack Obama's mentors, the unnamed inspiration of his teenage years he mentions in his book, Dreams of My Father? We know now the inspiration was non other than Communist Frank Marshall Davis.
What about the woman who encouraged and was the first to publically endorse Obama as a political figure back in Chicago during the 90s? We have found out that it was Obama’s predecessor in the Illinois State Senate, Alice Palmer who introduced Obama to Chicago’s radical elite in the living room of Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn’s home back in 1995. Palmer was an active radical leftist in the decade before she picked Obama for her seat.
The left doesn't want us to focus or see that these and other influences have anything to do with Obama's worldview. Yet, they are part of what fashions the Obama machine.
Enter another "earth-shattering" influence on the mind of our President.
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 Wednesday night. 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 oppression.
As Ben Shapiro wrote on Breitbart.com about Bell:
"This is a close associate of Jeremiah Wright, a man who was quoted by Jeremiah Wright regularly. This is a man who posited that the civil rights movement was too moderate because it accepted the status quo, and believed that the entire legal and constitutional system had to be transformed in radical fashion. This is a man so extreme that, as we’ve reported, he wrote a story in 1993 in which he posited that white Americans would sell black Americans into slavery to aliens to relieve the national debt, and that Jews would go along with it."
(That story became a video, complete with former President Ronald Reagan as the slave trading alien.)
An edited version of the video - minus the section in which Obama heaps praise on Professor Bell - was posted earlier on the BuzzFeed.com. Leftists and Obama apologists dismissed the video as inconsequential and racist. Eric Boehlert of Media Matters for America tweeted:
"look @mmfa has been saying this for 2+ yrs: the Breitbart crew = complete clowns. tonight more 'n more pple are figuring that out; #good"
Boehlert can't argue with the video's content; after all, it documents actual events. Instead, he resorts to the standard Alinsky tactic of ridiculing the messenger. He doesn't begin to address whether Obama's association with Bell should have been revealed before the 2008 election.
Shapiro reports what Harvard Law Professor Charles Ogletree, a close associate to the Obama campaign, had to say about hiding the tape during the 2008 campaign: "We hid this throughout the 2008 campaign. I don’t care if they find it now."
Isn't watchdog Boehlert curious about why a tape would be hidden by the campaign? Exactly what does interest a Senior Fellow at Media Matters for America?
The liberal website HyperVocal.com couldn't wait to recycle the Racer script. Slade Shomer, whose column is predictably entitled 'What's the Right-Wing End Game of This 'Racist Obama' College Days Video?' lacks even the slightest curiosity about Obama's association with Bell and why the '08 Obama campaign wanted it hidden. Instead, keeping with true intellectually dishonest tradition, Shomer plays the race card: (emphasis mine)
While everyone fights this out in partisan terms via Twitter and their websites, we’ll instead ask a more pragmatic question: What is the end game here? Let’s even say there’s more footage that shows Obama standing there in a shirt that reads “Kill Whitey.” Let’s say he professes his deep hatred of Caucasians and says Jeremiah Wright didn’t go far enough. What then? Hasn’t this man been President of the United States for more than three years and white people as we know them are still hangin’ around?
What was Breitbart, and now (editor-in-chief Joel) Pollak and Shapiro, trying to prove exactly? How does digging up 20-year-old video change anything? There’s only one goal here, and that’s to stoke white fear. It’s almost as if the people promoting a “damning” video and the people who want to believe it most are legitimately scared that a racist, classist Barack H. Obama will wipe white people off the map … in his second term.
Certainly we all acknowledge that class warfare is a major component of Obama's re-election campaign strategy. It's not scary, just dishonest and destructive. But how does the release of this video stoke white fear? The assertion is as ludicrous as it is ignorant (assuming Mr. Shomer actually believes his bizarre allegations).
Try as they might, the video is out and the conversation is being had. Just exactly what do we know about President Obama? Does this video change our minds about him leading up to Election Day? If there is one video, are there others? Who is Derrick Bell, and what do we know about him?
These are just some of the legitimate questions that Eric Boehlert and Shomer, and their fellow Leftists and Apologists, will never ask, and would prefer you didn't either.
The media, Hollywood, verily the entire culture at large does not want, nor even sees the need to vet this President. But rest assured Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and those on the center and right (Sarah Palin, especially) have been scoured through the microscope right on down the color of their underwear.
Obama is not squeak clean. He is tainted with the influences of 60s radicals, 70s elite, 80s counter-culture and 90's Neo-Marxism. He is a Platonic Neo-Socialist who is hell-bent on bringing America down and creating a totally dependent class that will bend to the whims of those who desire permanent power and dominance.
We believe that the Constitution of the United States speaks for itself. There is no need to rewrite, change or reinterpret it to suit the fancies of special interest groups or protected classes.
