Why Obama's Radical Buddies and Antisemitic Mentors Matter in 2012

Breitbart.Com Editor-In-Chief Joel Pollak's achieved a victory against CNN's presidential apologists when he explained the relevance of this new video evidence linking Barack Obama to Critical Race Theory, the racist political theology of Derrick Bell:

POLLAK: No, I'm not afraid that black people are going to be violent and take over the country. What I'm pointing out is that there's a pattern in Barack Obama's associations with Derrick Bell, with Reverend Wright, and it carries over into his governance because his Justice Department won't treat black civil rights violators the same way that it treats white civil rights violators. That there's a racial pattern in which justice is enforced in this country. And it also gives us a sense into how Barack Obama thinks about these issues.

At every point in his life when he could have followed the path of Martin Luther King, he threw in his lot with the Jeremiah Wrights and the Derrick Bells of the world.

How often does truth like this penetrate the MSM fog? This is an example of how to hack the media Breitbart-style.

Jeff Dunetz at YidWithLid jumped in yesterday to remind us that Bell falls into a long pattern of antisemitic mentors and associates:

Yesterday’s release of the Barack Obama/Derrick Bell Harvard tape was seen by many as another example of the President’s long history associating with radicals. There is another interpretation however. When Obama urged people to open up their hearts and minds to Bell it was another case of him “cozying” up to an Anti-Semite.  Understand we are not talking about people who are Anti-Israel (although there is a huge crossover of the two) but people who regularly use Anti-Semitic stereotypes or more direct derogatory comments about Jews.

Jeff provides 9 examples of other Obama confidantes who promote antisemitic conspiracy theories.

No matter how many times I lay out the facts to them my progressive friends do not understand why any of this matters. "Where's the bombshell?" in Soldedad O'Brien's words. Try this information on the Democrats in your own life and you'll get the same kind of embarrassing, non-sequiturs that prompted Pollak's rebuttal above: What are you afraid of? That Obama will unleash wild Kenyan tribesman to run through the streets spearing white people? That for his second term he's plotting new concentration camps for Louis Farrakhan to oversee the implementation of a second Holocaust?

No.

Consistently throughout his political career the young Barry Obama sympathized with antisemites and racists; as president his foreign policy (on Iran, Libya, and Israel) and his legal policy do the same.
