In 1990 my friend Rob once gave a speech to the class about the differences in the various brands audio cassettes available. It was riveting.

whoformvp: The reason is so that the video does not show the contrasting large white crowd but potrays darker tones for the crowd blending with Obama which may be interpreted as group of angry black people ....you know with the average republican demographics having eyesight problems and what not


Do they edit out or "color in" all the white people to hide they fact that about a majority of the crowd is actually white?

The theme from Boss N******** (new window). I wish whoever wrote this song would write the soundtrack to my life.

That sounds like an award-winning speech.

Dr. Mojo PhD: GGracie: Apparently, the full video will be released on Hannity tonight. I have the flu and feel like sh*t. I guess if I wanted to kill myself I could watch Sean Hannity tonight and push myself over the edge.

Don't bother. It will be exactly what I said it was. Twenty farking minutes of two lunatics screaming at us that this professor is N*GGER SATAN and then Obama hugs him so it's as if Bill Ayers was Osama bin Saddam Hitler and they palled around together on a flaming carousel where all wooden horses were painted to look like the flesh was flayed off them and the music was the screams of babies being aborted to a pulsing dubstep remix of failing fetal heartbeats.


I'll save myself. I really don't want my obituary to read "Death by Hannity"... that would be too cruel of a way to go.

Besides, this video is bullsh*t. The only way it will be interesting is if Sean Hannity does some creative dubbing and inserts his own voice in saying "kill whitey!" :-p

The 2012 Republican Party: Two black people in the same general vicinity acting cordial to each other is SCARY!

Corvus: I think many people on the right think of the concept of "diversity" as evil.


They really do. I've been in a lot of comments sections to notice this.

They talk about how diversity is being forced upon them. But of course when I ask what they mean by that, they're either too chickenshiat to answer back or they whargarbhl about something incoherently with a tiny veil of racism.

How is a video of a public speech just now being discovered? It's very strange hiding stuff like this.

Dimensio: gaspode: Dimensio: gaspode: The breitbart version is the same, but for some reason appalling quality, and 3 seconds longer at the end, to include a brief hug between Obama and the professor he just spent 3 minutes giving a warmly worded introduction to.

Truly history's greatest mon.. etc etc

Is your statement intended in jest, or have you actually seen the relevant video?

I took a hit for the team and went to breitbart and watched it (and a charming ad for dishwasher powder). It is a worse quality version of the same video, and runs for a couple of seconds more as the professor walks to the mic and they hug as hey change places. That really is it.

I was unaware that the the Breitbart version of the video had yet been fully released.


Ah glad to be of assistance. Please send cheques to cover my analyst bill following my visit to derpville.

Car_Ramrod: PBS steals Breitbart's thunder, too (new window)

There's nothing new about the clip or Obama's role in the controversy at Harvard Law School. In 2008, as a part of our quadrennial election special The Choice 2008, FRONTLINE ran the same footage of the speech as a part of an exploration of Obama's time at Harvard Law School, where he graduated in 1991. It's been online at our site and on YouTube since then.

In light of today's controversy, and Breitbart.com editors' claims that the footage had been edited, we pulled the full archived tape. In includes not just Obama's speech, but other footage from the rally and portions of Derrick Bell's speech. You can watch it in full below.


The best part?

Fore The clip on Breitbart's site is some horrible low-res copy of the original on BuzzFeed and PBS.

Pathetic.

maimzini: ecause his thesis is utterly untestable, one quickly reaches a dead end after either accepting or rejecting his assertion that white Americans would cheerfully sell all blacks to the aliens.


We did try to send them back to Africa for a while without the promise of treasure.

PonceAlyosha: Excuse me, but this movie sounds farking awesome. Blaxploitation is literally one of my favorite genres.


Oh, it was. Cosmic Slop was on HBO, presented as sort of an African-American Twilight Zone, with the floating head of George Clinton filling in for Rod Serling.

I don't remember the other two segments at all, but the Space Traders bit really stuck with me, 'cause yeah, I COULD see all us jive honkeys selling out the brothers (including poor Robert Guillaume!) in return for Super Alien Space Goodies. We humans suck like that.

Hell if I was Obama I would of assigned secret service to guard Brietbart and make sure he lived so I could make sure to watch him be laughed at for this.
 
2012-03-07 07:32:00 PM
Remember the Acorn and Weiner scandals. Everything wasn't released at once. It just kept getting worse and worse.
 
2012-03-07 07:32:03 PM
I wish Brietbart had lived to see this. Too bad the aneurism he would have had would have killed him.
 
2012-03-07 07:32:38 PM

James!: Brietbart just released some additional video where Obama actually hugs the professor... he hugs a man! Like a gay would!


Mother of god, then not only is Sarah Palin automatically President, but Santorum is now King of England and Putin is Overlord of the East.

maimzini:

First off, thanks for taking the bullet on this one and posting their insanity here.

Bell was one of the chief proponents of Critical Race Theory, a radical doctrine that holds that American legal institutions-including our civil rights laws-perpetuate white supremacy.

Critical Race Theory (CRT) is an academic discipline focused upon the intersection of race, law and power.

Although no set of canonical doctrines or methodologies defines CRT, the movement is loosely unified by two common areas of inquiry. First, CRT has analyzed the way in which white supremacy and racial power are reproduced over time, and in particular, the role that law plays in this process. Second, CRT work has investigated the possibility of transforming the relationship between law and racial power, and more broadly, the possibility of achieving racial emancipation and anti-subordination

I hope Obama is impeached because of this.

There is opposition, however. Jews condemn the trade as genocidal and organize the Anne Frank Committee to try to stop it. Empathy from another group that has suffered oppression? Not according to Bell. Instead, Jews worry that ''in the absence of blacks, Jews could become the scapegoats.''

Is that really anti-semitic? I mean, obviously today the backup scapegoats would be the dirty Mexicans, but with all dark ethnicities gone, it's not that far fetched that Jews would become the boogyman to scared white people.

It's not. It's been around a long time. No one cared. Now people on the right think they can manufacture outrage about it.
 
2012-03-07 07:33:35 PM
 
2012-03-07 07:34:22 PM
Well that was rather innocuous. People are going to be rolling their eyes at the right's outrage in 50 years I think. It's amazing that they still try to say that this isn't about race (on their part). I think I would actually respect them a little more at this point if they just came out, and said that they hate him because he's black.

"and Breitbart.com editors' claims that the footage had been edited"

This point really needs to be harped on.

It wasn't. But Breitbart, yes the "edited the shat out of any and all footage" Breitbart, cried that it WAS edited. They were lying, and more importantly accusing others of their own damn crimes.
 
2012-03-07 07:37:17 PM

dudemanbro: Wow, his speech style hasn't changed much since then. And I too wondered about the hand in-and-out of the pocket thing. Maybe he was stoned and paranoid that his weed was falling out.


I hate when that happens

You're all idiots. The real reason to show this video was they finally captured the puppetmaster on video, the one who who has been controlling Obama from the beginning, who planned the entire downfall of our country.

You know how embarrassing this is to the right? There is no FARK IndependentsTM in this thread going on about. Even they are even embarrassed by this derp.
