Judging Obama by His Antisemitic Friends

Last week’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 antisemite.  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 antisemitic stereotypes or more directly derogatory comments about Jews.

Here are some examples:

Derrick Bell: Bell was a leading proponent of Critical Race Theory (CRT), described by Daniel A. Farber and Suzanna Sherry in Beyond All Reason: The Radical Assault on Truth in American Law as an example of extreme multiculturalism. They add:

The radical theories inescapably imply that Jews and Asians enjoy an unfair share of wealth and status. Thus, the necessary normative implication of the radical theory is that steps should be taken to redress the balance more in favor of white gentiles. In addition, the radicals cannot easily explain Jewish and Asian success. Although benign explanations for this success are available, they are logically inconsistent with radical multiculturalism; consequently, the radicals would be forced to explain Jewish and Asian success by deploying theories that parallel historic forms of anti-Semitism. In short, if the radical multiculturalists are not personally anti-Semitic or anti-Asian, it is only because they have failed to work fully though the logic of their own theories.

More directly, Bell appeared to believe that Jews have an ulterior motive for everything. For example, in his novella, “The Space Traders,” Bell argued that Jews help blacks so they themselves won’t become the target of bigotry.

Merrill A. McPeak: Co-Chair of Obama’s 2008 campaign, McPeak is a believer in that old “Jews control the government” meme. In one interview, he suggested that U.S. politicians are afraid of Jewish voters in Miami and New York City and that American Jews are the “problem” impeding a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Sen. Chuck Hagel: When Obama was first elected, Hagel–a friend from Obama’s brief service in the U.S. Senate–was believed to be the president’s first choice for Defense Secretary. Hagel was once quoted as saying: “The political reality is that… the Jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up here.”

Sorry, Chuck, but the only Jewish lobby I know of is in my house–and my wife says it needs a paint job.

Khalid al-Mansour and Al-Waleed bin Talal: According to Sutton, Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal (the guy whose ten million dollars were rejected by former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani because he had blamed 9/11 on Israel) and Khalid al-Mansour of the antisemitic Nation of Islam were instrumental in assisting the future president’s Harvard ambitions.

    Not included is Obama’s Samantha Power, who was forced to resign (be fired) from Obama’s campaign after she got caught making antisemitic comments.
    Now she is (again) one of his top advisers.
    Samatha is an advocate of the Walt-Mearsheimer view of the American relationship with Israel.
    In a interview published on the Harvard Kennedy School’s website, Power was asked to explain “long-standing structural and conceptual problems in U.S. foreign policy.”
    She said a longstanding foreign policy flaw is the degree to which special interests dictate the way in which the “national interest” as a whole is defined and pursued . . . America’s important historic relationship with Israel has often led foreign policy decision-makers to defer reflexively to Israeli security assessments, and to replicate Israeli tactics, which, as the war in Lebanon last summer demonstrated, can turn out to be counter-productive.

    Gee, from the recent sounds from Panetta, it seems like she, Obama and Panetta are all on the same antisemitic page.

    yes, like I mentionned on the other comment, your freedom is okay for sure, and I gave my opinion just for noting my point on the subject, not in any way to convert you. I have to much respect for other to try to impose, but the fact that you thought that I was trying to impose,on you is telling, that maybe you have a false feeling at the time your mother was telling about her belief, maybe she was not trying to impose on you, maybe she was trying to protect her hard head son with words of wisdom she found in her bible,
    because she loved you and felt to warn you of the dangers coming to you in the future to prepare you
    for it with key words which she inprint in your mind even if you where not wanted to take them.
    I personaly was told the words to imprint my mind like the 10 commands, which should be done to every child if not at home well in school for sure, at the least, those 10 commands are a base of conduct
    for THE WHOLE humanity,
    that is my view, and I stand by it
    bye

    This whole article depends on the interpretation of one person (the original author) and on quotations that are mostly one or two decades old, and probably taken out of context.

    @Liberal1 (objectivity):

    You really must change your name that you use here at FA, Lib1. Objectivity plays no part whatsoever in your continued defense of Obama.

    HI,
    did you read of those missiles aiming at UNITED STATES AND ISRAEL, AND WILL BE ACTIVES as soon as one of us attack them that is IRAN,
    JUST NOW AT FOX NEWS HANNITY
    now here what I thought of how IRAN could try to attack ISRAEL,
    HE COULD USE ESBOLA PALESTINE WHICH IS CLOSER TO ISRAEL, EVEN TRANSPORTING ONE NUCLEOR BOMB THERE TO BE GEAR FOR LAUNCHING TO ISRAEL FROM PALESTINE, AND TRANSPORT HIS ARMY OF ROBOTS DIRECTLY IN PALESTINE,
    WHILE EVERYBODY IS WATCHING IRAN INSTEAD. IT CAME TO MY MIND WHEN THE ISRAEL PM WAS IN TALK WITH OBAMA
    bye
