From Investors.com, on the Prof. Derrick Bell revelation:
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 Obama’s Harvard days. The footage served as wallpaper. Now that Breitbart.com has put the entire video online, the major media have gone into damage-control mode for Obama….
They knew what he was about. Anybody who has read Bell’s works knows he’s militantly anti-white and anti-America. He didn’t try to hide that, unlike his fans in the media today.
Bell was too radical even for Harvard, which sacked him, but not too radical for our president, who embraced him as a 30-year-old law student. And who then went on to indoctrinate his own law students in Bell’s hate when he was a University of Chicago professor.
Obama required them to read Bell’s “Race, Racism and American Law,” which argues American law is illegitimate because it’s derived from “white power structure.”
Relevance today? Obama’s close relationship with Bell fits a pattern of radical associations that have carried over into his administration….
