Obama: ‘Open Up Your Hearts and Minds’ to Racialist Prof

Ben Shapiro, Big Government, March 7, 2012

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.”

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.”


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.

  • Prof. Bell was the author most common on Obama’s reading list syllabus in his own classes at the University of Chicago Law School:


    I’ve had more time to think about this scandal.  Yes, I think it was worth doing, no, it’s not the equivalent of catching him in bed with a little girl, so it won’t kill his chances for a second term by itself.

    One day, unfortunately not before November, Americans will come to understand that Barack Husein Obama is not a legitimate President of the United States.  There would still be time to remove him from office.

  • Christopher_Nelson

    Everyone who was paying attention already knew who Obama was, and who he hung out with. This video is nothing new, and I doubt that it will mean much of anything.  Blacks won’t care, and neither will white liberals. 

    Obama’s true colors have long been exposed.  The recent Sherif’f’s investigation  has shown  what  people  already knew, about his fraudulent documents, such as his birth certificate. But it doesn’t matter.

    They are not going to kick out the first black president.  Doesn’t matter what he does. They don’t want nation wide riots.  And the constitution is just so much toilet paper now.

    Even the republicans are not touching Obama on his fraud.

    • Hate to say it CN but you’re right; it doesn’t matter what this clown does, they will do nothing to him. It is sickening and if there was ever any doubt as to if there is a difference in parties well, you don’t see any impeachment proceedings do you?! There’s your answer…

    • Shawn_thefemale

       CN, you’re absolutely correct on all counts. And for once Obama is actually being honest: he DOESN’T care if they find it. For all the reasons you mentioned.

  • n_arov

    Hey AmRen, what’s with all the tracking?

  • jackellis

    I request that American Renaisance not allow wild conspiracy theorists to spread their CTs here.

    Conspiracy theorists have been the bane of the American Right wing for 50 years.

    They always insist that they and they alone have some secret truth that will change history, reverse the past, it always comes to naught.

    Obama was born in Hwawai, a half Black African mongrel born to an African polygamists. Barack’s life isn’t hard to understand, nor is his time at Harvard Law School – we have few friends at Harvard Law School. Anybody here want to date, mate with the likes of Elena Kagan?

      It’s so easy to dismiss people who don’t let the media do their thinking for them as “conspiracy theorists.”

      As the late Milton William Cooper said, “Listen to everyone, read everything, believe nothing unless you can prove it
      in your own research.”

      I have read that Obama’s real father was a black communist by the name of Frank Marshall Davis.   I don’t know if that would make him a natural-born American seeing as how there’s evidence that he was born in KENYA, but there’s also the issues of his adoption by his Indonesian stepfather.

    • Jackellis,

      Actually the faux conservatives, the Jews, neocons and all the rest of their ilk have been the bane of conservatism. Look back through history at most of the “conspiracy theories”; I think you’ll find that many were spot on.

    • anonymous_amren

      “Next time the AR staff changes or adds anything to our website and
      moderation policy, we’ll be sure to clear it with you. — Moderator”
      That’s a sensible idea, no matter how sarcastic you were being. Amren readers are very smart, rational people with good arguments, and it’s not a bad idea to get their thoughts on moderation policy.

      I don’t think a total ban on conspiracy theorists is the right strategy though. Conspiracy theorists are a big problem, but too much censorship just makes their delusions stronger. It’s better to just let them post, as long as there’s not too many of them, and rely on other commenters to explain their errors.

      Obama was born in the USA. There is no possible way he could have been born in Kenya, as Steve Sailer has explained. Being born in the USA isn’t enough to make you a “natural-born citizen” though, so he is still ineligable to be president. The intent of the constitution is clear on this point.

      There’s always enough information in the public domain to damn the liberals ten times over, without us trying to uncover secret conspiracies. Looking for the secret conspiracies just drives people crazy.

      • MikeofAges

        “No possible way he could have been born in Kenya?” Excuse me, there were daily flights from Embakasi (Now Jomo Kenyatta) Airport to London and presumably other European destinations, Rome and Athens I would guess. There was already jet service, but even by prop the trip from Kenya to Hawaii was maybe 30 hours in the air. The possible scenario is that the Obamas made the trip in the summer on account of his university schedule. Perhaps Obama, Sr., out of ego, wanted his son born a Commonwealth subject and Ann complied. Or maybe he arrived a little early. We just don’t know.

        I agree, most likely he was born in Hawaii, but there is wide room for doubt and reasons to doubt as well. Getting from Kenya to Hawaii was by no means impossible. It just took a little longer than getting from Europe to Hawaii.

    • libertarian4339

      The fact that Obama’s birth certificate is counterfeit has been established to my satisfaction.  I followed along pretty closely to the methodology in determing that.  Because it’s a fake, however,  doesn’t  in itself  prove that Obama wasn’t born in Hawaii, but it gives considerable weight to the proposition that he wasn’t, especially since the airline manifests  between Kenya and the US for a week after Obam’s birth  have mysteriously disappeared.

      The enitre matter handled by Sheriff Joe was done in a professional way, and he utilized experts where needed to give an objective evaluation of the evidence.  It was plain his civilian “posse” made every effort to go after the truth wherever it might lead them. 

      There’s nothing even close to a theory here, let alone a conspiracy theory.  The birth certificate is false, and the fact that it is false is a bigger story and should be of more concern to everybody than his video of the racist professor who was full of anti-white hate.

      Incidentally, I might add that I never doubted that Obama wasn’t born in Hawaii.  I tuned into the coverage of the results of the birth certificate examination fully expecting to hear that nothing conclusive was determined or that it was authentic.

    • Sonya610

      Moderator that was a bit harsh. Moderating is about keeping things civil, not taking things personally.

  • “We hid this throughout the 2008 campaign, we don’t care if they find it now”…Hmmm…

    1)WHY would they not care now.
    2) How is it that Breibart et al happened to obtain a copy NOW.
    3) Something is not right with this whole deal…

  • Sonya610

    Obvious trolling; likely not the only one.

    If this is the “bombshell” that the late Andrew Breitbart was referring to, then the GOP and the political right is really grasping for straws.

    This is much adu about nothing. 

    • “Much adu about nothing.”

      Do you mean Freddy Adu?

        You must excuse him. Ebonics is his first language.

    Obama is bad enough without having to fabricate things. It was a piece of satire according to Snopes.

      I don’t trust Snopes.

  • Black Swan

    Bell was credited with developing ‘critical race theory,’ which suggested that the U.S. legal system was inherently biased against African Americans and other minorities because it was built on an ingrained white point of view.

    Translated that means blacks should never be held accountable for their miserable failures, companies should be forced to hire them regardless of qualifications and any crimes they commit should be overlooked because the law is racist.

    Sounds like 0bama and Holder.

    Saul Alinsky-approved tactics tell blacks to denounce and vilify anyone more successful than they are and take offense and “use any means necessary” to silence anyone who dares to say it might be due to their own damned fault.

  • Black Swan

    Bell signed a credo calling for the abolishment of ‘the white race as a social category – in other words, eradicate white supremacy entirely.’

    This should read:  Bell signed a credo calling for the abolishment of the white race — in other words, eradicate whites.

    Bell is a genocidist. To white haters like Bell and Time Wise,  “whites” are a social construct, so we do not exist and because we don’t exist then we can be wiped out

    No amount of set asides, appeasement, lowered standards, quotas or reparation money will ever make racist marxist like Bell, Holder and Wise forget or forgive.

    Professor Bell’s solution is Zyklon B.

  • Insoc

    Well, well well!   More propaganda on inciting class warfare, victimhood and racial identity to further the Commie revolution.  It didn’t work in the old USSR and left  65 million people dead. It won’t ever work.

    It’s amazing to me that there are still some brainwashed useful idiots around who take Derek Bell seriously.  

    Hypocritical white haters like “Professor” Bell pretend to have trouble identifying who is and isn’t white when confronted with people who do not wish to see the white race genocided.  But White haters like Bell and Wize have no problem identifying Whites when it comes to slavery, affirmative action, discrimination and use of coded language.

    Strange how they insist that whites don’t exist and at the same time blame whites for slavery, oppression, victimization and racism. 

  • Marc B.

    The most strident, young white liberals are the one’s most likely to be so dismayed by the racial realities they experience on the job and in life that they will be the one’s to migrate to a perspective of white self interest. I expect a new batch of people becoming “active in the white community” will be dejected former liberals extremely irritated by the multicultural conditioning they received because they will realize how much of a disadvantage that puts them in a world where non-whites are held to a different set of standards. Only the silver pony tails are a truly lost cause.

  • GM (Australia)

    Obviously “Guest” is trying to suggest that the US government is totalitarian, the elections are rigged and so on. That’s interesting, our old foes the Russians are saying exactly the same thing! (About their elections)

    But about “conspiracy theories”:  Why are we getting DIVERSITY rammed down our throats from dawn to dusk? All the news items about International Women’s  Day  told us about the benefits and joys of diversity.  Showed plenty of assertive African women.  To get away from left leaning politics  (and similar tripe) I thought could enjoy reading  a “Popular Mechanics” magazine, all about cars, tools inventions home maintenance etc.  But NO, my copy had a full page ad telling it’s readers to embrace diversity in their neighbourhood. Showed lots of pictures of third worlders supposedly taking care of their houses and yards!

  • Detroit_WASP

    I have to admit, the dark side of me does wish that BHO loses a close races in 2012 as Gore did.  I think we would see large scale riots as we did back in 1967 because Jessee Jackson and Al Sharpton would be all over TV saying it was racism.  And then I could tell all my liberal friends, “See, I told ya so, EVERYTHING is a racial issue to blacks!”

    The logical part of my brain just wants to see BHO get the boot in 2012 in a landslide for the right.

  • When the rioting starts, it will make ’67 look like a Sunday outing . Be prepared.

  • bluffcreek1967

    As Obama is introducing this pompous professor to the enamored and foolish students, Derrick Bell does not even conceal his arrogance or self-importance for it is evident on his haughty face!   

  • jackellis

    Guest thinks

    “it’s all a conspiracy! Someone must be stealing the votes! Everyone he knows is a true believer Libertarian and is wildly enthusiastic to end Social Security, close military bases break the UAW and the Teamsters Union, let business hire and fire whatever workers they want and let The Market deterime wages ( translates as flooding the USA with happy slave minimum wage Mestizos)”

    Hey Guest you’re in a small cult! At least 90 percent of White Americans reject this cult, always have, always will.

  • timbo44


    “I live to harass white people – so those at Harvard
    and some other places need to be on guard”. That is a quote from Bell, and he doesn’t deserve the title of Professor.
