School That Won’t Release Obama’s Grades Offers Class On "Understanding Obama"

After demonstrating a thorough lack of knowledge regarding the system of checks and balances in government, with his veiled threat directed at the Supreme Court, President Obama certainly raised some eyebrows.

“I used to think some of these right-wingers were kind of nutty demanding to see Obama’s college and law school transcripts. I want to see them now,” Ann Coulter said.


But instead of releasing those college transcripts, Harvard is now offering a course in how to better understand the President.  Because as always, it’s not him, it’s you that is a moron.


Via the Daily Caller:

Not every Harvard Law School alumnus has a class devoted to him — but then, President Barack Obama is not just any alumnus.
According to the Harvard Law School course catalog, professor Charles Ogletree will be teaching a reading group called “Understanding Obama” for one classroom credit during the 2013 spring term.
“This reading group will focus on the way in which race, religion, and politics have impacted the development of President Obama as a leader,” the Harvard Law School Course Catalog explains. “We will explore his views as a biracial child, his time as a student at Harvard Law School, the successes and failures of his political campaigns, and the way religion and his views on faith nearly derailed his campaign. Finally, time will be spent analyzing the challenges he faces as president of the United States in establishing both his domestic and global policies.”
Obama graduated from Harvard Law School in 1991. He was elected the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review in 1990.
Ogletree was a mentor to both President Obama and Michelle Obama while they were Harvard law students.
In an interview, Ogletree explained to The Daily Caller that the reading group will deal with both the positive and negative issues surrounding Obama and his presidency.

Then again who knows, maybe studying his grades and his research papers will be part of the curriculum.

Video of Michelle Obama as a Young Harvard Occupier?

The vetting of Obama, something that should have been done in 2008, continues.  This time, with video of what may be a young Michelle Obama taking part in a protest on behalf of race-extremist, Professor Derrick Bell.  The purpose of the Occupy-like sit-in is in advocating the very definition of racism – they were demanding that the Harvard Law School hire professors based on race. 

Via Pajamas Media (h/t Twitchy):

A treasure trove of information is coming out regarding Barack Obama’s time in college. Over at the Breitbart sites, we are learning how Obama inserted himself into a fight to implement hiring on the basis of race at Harvard Law School. The Obama tapes also seem to show the other Obama – Michelle – occupying the Harvard Law School dean’s office. The occupiers were agitating for the race-based hiring of Harvard law professors.

The racialist fight at Harvard Law from 1988 to 1991 swirls around Professor Derrick Bell. As detailed over at Big Government, Professor Bell was a role model to law student Barack Obama. But he also openly advocated for a variety of racialist views wholly outside the American mainstream. Some of them are outright crazy. He deliberately used his position as a professor to teach racially charged theories of structural oppression by whites. Obama, nevertheless, now famously urged us “to open up our hearts and minds to the words of Professor Derrick Bell.”

Author of the post, J. Christian Adams, claims to have viewed the Betamax (higher quality) version of the tapes that he says ‘leave little doubt’ that they show Michelle Obama.  What exactly do they show?

In May 1988, Harvard Law students, borrowing from Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, and foreshadowing the Occupy movement of 2011, occupied the Harvard Law School’s dean’s office. The students were supporting Professor Derrick Bell’s demand that the law school hire professors on the basis of race.

One of the students “dressed in black” and occupying the dean’s office appears to be Michelle Obama (Harvard Law ’88).

Here is a link to the internet version of the video.

Another brick in the wall that shows the Obamas palling around, and advocating for, radicals.
