Obama mentor: we hid Harvard race tapes during 2008 campaign

Obama: ‘Open up your hearts and your minds’ to racialist prof

Ben Shapiro

Below is footage of Barack Obama praising and hugging Professor Derrick Bell.  It was spliced and diced by the media to avoid showing just how close Obama was to Bell. More than that, a close associate of the Obama campaign, Harvard Law School’s Professor Charles Ogletree, admitted on our exclusive tape, “We hid this throughout the 2008 campaign. I don’t care if they find it now.” [emphasis CAJ]

Well, we found it. And it is damaging, because Barack Obama was as close or closer to Derrick Bell than he ever was to Jeremiah Wright. Obama didn’t merely sit in the pews – or not — for Derrick Bell. He didn’t just hang out with Derrick Bell for prayers. He said:

“Open up your hearts and your minds to the words of Professor Derrick Bell.”

If we did, here’s what we’d be opening our hearts and minds to…

…There’s far more coming on Derrick Bell. This is just the beginning. And this video is a smoking gun showing that Barack Obama not only associated with radicals, he was their advocate.

The video is at Breitbart’s BigGovernment.

Update 2: Who is Professor Derrick Bell and What is Critical Race Theory?

…For instance, in The Constitutional Contradiction, Bell argued that the framers of the Constitution chose the rewards of property over justice. With regard to the interest convergence, he maintains that “whites will promote racial advances for blacks only when they also promote white self-interest.” Finally, in The Price of Racial Remedies, Bell argues that whites will not support civil rights policies that may threaten white social status, like the affirmative action hiring through which he acquired his status...

Update 5The significance of the Breitbart video:the legacy media’s disinterest in exploring the Obama narrative

…No one would have seen the video if people outside the legacy media went rooting around for stories about Obama’s past.

In 2008, 0ur friends in the legacy media showed considerable curiosity in John McCain’s running mate, then-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, dispatching countless reporters to the Last Frontier to root out the smallest detail of her personal and professional life. By contrast, when Barack Obama catapulted onto the political scene, they did not show a similar curiosity, spending little time investigating Obama’s background. They relied on Obama’s campaign to supply the narrative of the Democrat’s life…

“I reject this idea that we should just shrug our shoulders and buy the PBS/Buzzfeed line that there’s nothing new here. Stop it! This is news! They didn’t want to talk about it then and they don’t want to talk about it now.”

Update 6Video: Does O’Brien know what “Critical Race Theory” is?

...Turns out O’Brien does know who Derrick Bell is. Go look at this page at Michelle’s new site Twitchy compiling some of her tweets about him. She marked his passing last October, retweeted Charles Ogletree’s tribute to him, and mentioned that she was “re-reading” one of his books, so she’s familiar with his work. Could be they were even acquainted (she was a Harvard undergrad), although in that case, she maybe should have mentioned it to the viewers as a prelude to the ritual savaging of Pollak as a racist, huh? Bottom line: Yeah, evidently she does know what Critical Race Theory is…
