Obama Hugs Black Guy



CONTEXT:
http://wonkette.com/466285/obama-hugs-black-guy

This is essentially the top TV clip of the last five years. You’re gonna wanna bookmark it so that one day years down the road, you might tell your fat post-apocalyptic alien grandkids about how the Ghost of Breitbart era of terror began. It allllll started right here, with this powerful segment on Fox News’ popular bacterium Hannity, exposing Barack Obama’s worst (or second-worst?) secret : One time in 1991, when Obama was serving as the first black president of the Harvard Law Review, he spoke affably of the first black tenured Harvard Law professor, Derrick Bell, while he was peacefully protesting the lack of diversity on Harvard’s faculty. And then Obama hugged him. He might as well have given Sauron a reach-around.

This is the stupidest fucking story we’ve ever seen, maybe. Watch these amoral idiots trying to grapple with the fact that they’ve been scooped on releasing their much-hyped Scary Obama Radical College Years clip — part one of a new Breitbart.com thing called THE VETTING, defined in this context as a media campaign in which a half-literate band of googlers scotch tape together clunky race-baiting narratives about nothing.


There's a long list of political moves that I deeply disagree with Obama on, from his poor environmental record, to letting Rahm Emanuel kill the public option, to signing the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, to extending the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 1% of Americans... but this? This is nothing. The fact that so many folks thought Andrew Breitbart was "assassinated" because of this video is god damn hilarious... and also a little sad.
