Video footage of President Obama during his college years at Harvard University was intentionally suppressed by news media and academia during the 2008 presidential campaign in order to hide Obama’s connections with radical leftists, according to the editors of Breitbart.com, the website of late conservative activist Andrew Breitbart.Selling black Americans to aliens to relieve the national debt?? What the heck is that all about? Once you see the details and how WND/Breitbart is manipulating them, you'll see how empty this story is.
Tapes of Obama at Harvard in 1991 have now been posted online and aired on the Fox News Channel, and they show then–student Obama speaking warmly on behalf of a leftist professor, Derrick Bell.
“Open up your hearts and your minds to the words of Professor Derrick Bell,” Obama says during his speech before hugging him.
The embrace between the pair had been edited out of a video that was released earlier in the day by Buzzfeed. (Video of the embrace can be seen here.)
“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,” said Breitbart editor Ben Shapiro.
Referring to Professor Bell, Shapiro explained, “This is a close associate of [controversial Obama Rev.] 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.”
Turns out it's a short story from a book (from 1992, not 1993) titled "Faces At The Bottom Of The Well". From the NYTimes Book Review:
These are fables with footnotes as well as irony: Jonathan Swift come to law school. Harvard figures prominently, as does the Supreme Court; most of the stories began as seminar teaching tools to prod students to re-examine old assumptions.Ah...fables with footnotes. The review has more:
ONE of the most effective fables, and by far the most chilling, is the tale of the Space Traders -- creatures from another planet who offer the United States the solution to all its economic and environmental ills in exchange for one thing: its black population, which would be carried off to an unknown fate in outer space. The story becomes a canvas for Mr. Bell's portraits of the wise, foolish, weak, strong and venal characters of both races who respond to this challenge to the national soul. That the outcome is predictable makes it no less heartbreaking.Yea, he's radical because he used a fable to make a point. And Jonathan Swift actually advocated eating Irish babies.
That's the smoking gun: In 1991 (before Bell advocated that Amur'ka sell the blacks to the aliens to pay off the guv'ment debt) Barack Obama hugged Derrick Bell.
If that weren't enough of teh crazie for you, there's this from WND:
There’s been a solid argument made that Ayers ghost-wrote Obama’s highly acclaimed memoir, “Dreams from My Father.”Solid only in crazie-land.
