Some Insight Into Obama's Radical Friend, Prof. Derrick Bell (Updated with links & video)

Andrew Breitbart claimed he had videos that would be part of the vetting process of Barack Obama before the 2012 election.  Vetting process?  It's about time.

Today it was announced that one of these videos is being aired on Hannity tonight on FNC at 9 PM ET.  An edited copy of this video has been flying around the internet today.  It shows a young Obama speaking at a Harvard protest.  He is introducing a man named, Prof. Derrick Bell.  According, the video, "...shows a young Barack Obama leading a protest at Harvard Law School on behalf of Prof. Derrick Bell, a radical academic tied to Jeremiah Wright"...".  Obama had a lot of nice things to say about Professor Bell, and that's not surprising after hearing that Prof. Bell and Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama's former pastor, were "tied".

I have never heard of Prof. Derrick Bell, so I did a little poking around the internet. Apparently, Prof. Bell wrote some books focusing on racial issues.  I also found a website that includes reviews of Prof. Bell's books.  The site is from the Department of Politics and Government, Illinois State University.  What better way to find out what Prof. Bell's thoughts are on race than to read the reviews of his writings?

After you read some of the reviews of Prof. Bell's books and seeing what Bell professed in his words , the question can be this how President Obama thinks, too?  After all, Obama praises Prof. Bell in this (edited) video. Editor-in-Chief Joel Pollak and Editor-at-Large Ben Shapiro will appear on The Sean Hannity Show to discuss the tape. The full tape will be released tonight on Fox News' Hannity.

Here's the link to the book review website:  The Race and Ethnicity Book Review Discussion.

If you have time, take a few minutes yourself to peruse through the reviews.  I've gone through a few, and here are three samples of reviews of two of Prof. Bell's books:
Review of Derrick Bell, AND WE ARE NOT SAVED (Basic Books, 1987)
"...While Bell is right that the United States is far from being
a picture of racial justice, he ignores the progress blacks have
made.  Such progress has been slow and uneven, but
surely more has been made than Bell would admit when he speaks of
"citizens of color whose lives are little less circumscribed than
were those of their slave forbears."  But in Bell's view, the
primary concern of whites is retention of their dominant position
in society, and the only gains blacks have made have been
grudgingly conceded by whites in order to keep blacks from openly

Review of Derrick Bell,  AND WE ARE NOT SAVED (Basic Books, 1987) 
"...Bell truly believes that late-20th-century black Americans should be compensated for the inhumanities
suffered by their ancestors..."  
(Basic Books, 1992)                    
"...Upon reading the book I was both surprised and at times
disappointed with the way in which Bell ended some of the
chronicles.  He asserts that racism is a permanent reality
in America and that nothing that civil rights groups or
white liberals do will change that fact.  Bell does
acknowledge that blacks have made some strides in this
country over the past two hundred years, however he states
that whites only allow those minute advances to pacify the
masses, and even then there are alternative motives for
doing so..."
Like I said, we need to ask the question, "Does Barack Obama believe the same things Prof. Bell states in his writings?".  I think that answer is becoming more evident every day.  Twenty years in Rev. Wright's church should have given America the first clue, unfortunately we can thank the MSM for disregarding and downplaying that story.

LET THE VETTING BEGIN and let the MSM know that this time we are not going to allow them to cover up for the radical that sits in the Oval Office.

Thank you Andrew Breitbart.

    1. Thanks, Hack. I wonder if this time we can get the word out about Obama. I think the MSM is already trying to circumvent this by releasing the "edited" video. The real question is how curious will Americans be to actually make an effort to see the entire video. I really hope whatever is on these videos will be so damaging that there won't be any way Obama can be re-elected. I guess time will tell. Thanks for stopping by. I always enjoy your blog.

  2. Thank you and thank you for the link! Keep up the fight. Can't wait to see the whole vid tonight.

  3. Thanks for posting this. The protection oblabber has received from the democrat media is beyond shocking.

    1. You're welcome. This time we can not let the media hide and distort the truth.

  4. Brava, Conservative Lady. Brava, indeed.

    (If you could see me right now, you would see that I am applauding. On the inside. Where it counts.)

    I came here from Hack Wilson's blog, by the way.

    1. twoguys:
      Thank you for the kind words and for stopping by TCL. Hope you'll come back and visit again.

  5. Exactly. The mixed race Havard Law review president doesn't believe in American values like freedom, liberty, and democracy. That is why he believed he could be elected president. I cannot think of anything more anti-American than running for president.

    1. Well, at least you got the part about him not believing in American values like freedom, liberty and democracy correct.

  6. This is what you got??? You see him speaking up his teacher and you research by reading a few reviews to come up with the idea that this guy might be radical??? WOW! He might have some good opinions in his book and some that could be questionable to some, but none that are radical. most put him in a similar category to Cosby. Tht's not radical. He's just as hard on his own race at times and most of his opinions truthfully are correct and the others get you to think little, you may agree u may not.

    Do us a favor and let me know when u got something real, ok!

    1. You sound angry.
      Yes, I read reviews of Bell's books and think he is a radical. Maybe you should read some yourself and also take a look at some of the videos and writings about Bell before you start making false comparisons to Bill Cosby (who is "most" anyway?)
      If you don't understand the reason why the videos are important, then let me briefly explain it to you. The videos are proof that the Left was hiding information about Obama from the voters in 2008. That's important whether you want to admit it or not. They did everything they could to hide Obama's radical associates, and Prof. Bell was one of them.
      Please do me a favor and troll though someplace else next time.

  7. It is amazing the people that Obama has surrounded himself with. And he has not been held accountable for these alliances.

    Until now!

    1. Hopefully this time around more people will be open to hearing the truth. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll come back.

  8. Not so fast, remember we all thought that Jeremiah Wright would derail Barry first time around? And it didn't happen? Ditto here: the MSM will simply ignore the Derrick Bell sound bites, videos, and anything else that puts Barry in a bad light, and it will not be covered by anyone other than the blogosphere and maybe Fox News.

    And people who vote for Obama are insulated from those media. It won't be an issue. I hope I'm wrong, but unfortunately I'm not.

    1. Hi Fredd:
      I agree with you about the MSM ignoring (and covering up) these stories. From the videos Breitbart released yesterday we now have definite proof that things were purposefully hidden from the voters. What I am hoping is that this time around, (after Obama has a record and that there are many more alternative news sites spreading the word) independent voters and other people who were hoodwinked in 2008, will be open to hearing the truth. No doubt there are those who are saturated in the Kool-Aid and will never turn their backs on Obama. On the other hand, there are a lot of people who voted for Obama because of the historical factor and/or people who really believed his hopey changey BS. There is a chance that those are the people who will face the reality of the damage Obama has done to America and they will show their displeasure at the poles in November. Now, everybody start praying!

    2. Lady: the rub lies herein: how many continue their marinade in the Kool-Aid. This is crucial. Obama now has a record. And a bad one. But those soaking in Goofy-Grape are also reaping huge Obama gimme's, pay no federal tax, and languish sideways in the public trough.

      Those losers are the jokers in this race: how many of those are there (that vote, or whose registrations can be manipulated toward the D side of things). Obama is counting on the majority of voters as the takers, and not makers. Sad, very sad and dangerous.

  9. Still in La La Land and the Hotel doesn't have that mean spirited FOX News ... go figure.

    1. Well, it's time to Be Breitbart. Rat that hotel out!
