Soledad O’Brien: Okay, you can stop tweeting me about Critical Race Theory now

posted at 4:15 pm on March 12, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via the Daily Caller. I sympathize with the Political Math guy’s take on this but this clip is so dumb that you should watch it for the entertainment value, if nothing else. The key bit comes at 2:50. Remember when Joel Pollak described CRT as an argument that “the civil rights movement was a sham and that white supremacy is the order and it must be overthrown,” earning instant sneers from O’Brien? She restates his position here for her guest, Professor Dorothy Brown, as “he said Critical Race Theory is all about white supremacy.” Brown seems taken aback by that, understandably — the way O’Brien phrases it, it sounds as if Pollak was claiming that CRT was itself white supremacist in nature, which is insane. So, good job to everyone involved here in debunking something that no one is claiming. The other possibility is that Brown understood Joel’s point perfectly well despite O’Brien’s mangled attempt to restate it and simply thought his description of the discipline was wrong. If that’s the case, we have an even bigger problem. Go read Jim Treacher’s post to see why, paying special attention to the law review excerpt he found and who the author is. Either Joel’s being sandbagged here by an academic who agrees with him when the cameras aren’t on or the whole conversation’s FUBAR because O’Brien couldn’t get his position right when asking her question.

For the record, National Review checked with Harvard Professor Stephan Thernstrom on Friday to settle the great Pollak/O’Brien CRT dispute and got this response:

Stephan Thernstrom, a professor of social history at Harvard, explains to National Review Online that he sees Pollak’s explanation as “a little crude but essentially right. O’Brien is simply blowing smoke.”

Thernstrom explains that “CRT does boil down to the assumption that white supremacy lives on, only in more subtle ways. Proponents would refer more often to ‘white privilege’ than ‘white supremacy,’ but I’m sure you could find them using the former term as well.”

He notes, however, that Pollak “certainly” went too far in his claims about what CRT proponents think about the civil rights movement: “They admire it greatly because it was a mass movement by blacks and led by blacks. . . . But they would maintain that the actual legislation and court decisions that resulted from it were very minor advances that made hardly a dent in the oppressive structures created by whites to keep blacks down.”

Tom Maguire went dumpster diving through the NYT’s archives and found that their treatment of CRT over the years dovetails with Pollak’s definition too. O’Brien could have conceded the accuracy of his definition during their interview and stuck with the argument that his association with Bell means nothing when assessing Obama’s motives, but she and CNN evidently felt obliged to go the extra mile of trying to make it look like Pollak quite literally didn’t know what he was talking about. Go figure that Joel, a Harvard Law grad, knows what’s being taught at Harvard Law.

Supreme Court to Consider Key Civil Rights Cases
*************************************************

**********************

In an America that elected Barack Obama its first African American President and Eric Holder its first African American Attorney General, is there still a need for civil rights protections?

All one has to do is look at the current docket of civil rights cases before the Supreme Court to realize the answer to that question is a resounding, “Yes.”

In several important cases to be heard by the Court this month, we find civil rights under assault.

How the Court decides will not only affect the lives of millions of African Americans,

it will clearly show us where the nation stands in its commitment to equal opportunity under the law.(More….)

CNN has become the BET of Cable News Channels. It started in 2007-8 and it’s continued to expand since then. I can barely watch them any more because they constantly push this CRT theme via their programming and their choices of pundits and anchors. Soledad O’Brien is one of the WORST. Every special she did when she lost her morning anchor slot was on The Civil Rights Movement and/or MLK, Jr. Do these people EVER STFU? I’m sick of it. I grew up during the 60s and 70s; I supported and am proud of the Civil Rights Movement. But they never STFU with their hectoring, lecturing, sanctimonious hypocrisy over all of it. Good God Almighty–Move on people. Your skin color isn’t an issue with anyone but you!

Critical Race Theory is RACISM. Why is CNN and Soledad O’Brien advocating RACISM?

Jabberwock on March 12, 2012 at 5:06 PM

But of course. If the root of CRT is that the system is inherently broken (and the NBPP acted right), doesn’t the mere necessity of the NBPP actions on voting day support CRT? I mean, if the system were working correctly, then there would be no need for these NBPP to act at all, right? Since the system is inherently racist, then, of course, some action was necessary as a means to correct it, or set the stage to destroy it outright. So, it appears as if the NBPP were working under the CRT as it is written, no?

Her Twitter feed continues to melt down. Memo to tweeps: if you want people to stop tweeting you, don’t tell them to stop tweeting you.

This story also missed a critical part of the initial story: O’Brien and her guest, actor Jay Thomas basically accusing Pollack of being racist, without doing some research into the skin color of his wife. It could have been a Contessa Brewer/Mo Brooks moment, but I think Pollack did not want to put his wife into the spotlight.

Or the Pigford case, in which Harvard’s Ogletree recommended the lawyer who turned the case from a legitimate attempt by wronged black (and white) farmers to get compensated for USDA rip-offs, into a multi-billion-dollar “reparations” scheme for thousands of blacks willing to claim they “attempted to farm.” The Obama administration approved the pay-outs, even though it was well known the case was rife with fraud. Lawyers were giving seminars in poor black neighborhoods, coaching them on how to submit fraudulent affidavits to back up their phony “attempted to farm” claims, and justifying this outrageous thievery from taxpayers by rationalizing that blacks are “owed” compensation for all the years that The Man has been keeping them down. Ogletree was one of Barry/Baraka’s mentors at Harvard Law.

Your guy is going down come November. I feel 0′s desperation. 0 feels it most. These pathetic attempts to change the narrative are proof. You are proof. This fall you all go poof. I’ll miss your wit./

WHY ARE YOU FEEDING TROLLS?

angryed on March 12, 2012 at 7:13 PM

LOL. A CBS/NY Times poll has Obama +3 over Romney. Which means it’s really about a -3. Which is in line with Rasmussen (Romney +3) and ABC News (Romney +2).

Looks like no matter how hard the left tries to demonized, when gas is is $4 and climbing, none of it matters.

Very impressed with torch bearer Joel Pollak. Breitbart lives!

Yup, Joel is a good man, which of course means he is now at the top of the left’s hit list just under Rush.

He may be going down, but it’s surely not going to be because of Critical Race Theory.

I’m not sure why I’m the one trying to change the narrative. It was the late AB that foisted this distraction on America. And Rush who handed us the birth control debate.

Sure. You aren’t very well informed are you? Explains your support for 0. Helps explain you being an apologist for him also.

Bmore on March 12, 2012 at 7:27 PM

OT, but why are there no discussions or stories on HotAir about the massacre in Afghanistan? It’s all over every other political blog.

rickyricardo on March 12, 2012 at 7:26 PM

It’s apparent she wasn’t hired for her mental abilities or her composure, so she best spend some time in the gym. It’s all she’s got.

Does CNN’s health plan pay for gym memberships?

What are you trying to say? Big down and then pictures of Bachmann and Suckabee? Is that an attack or are you hittin’ that stem again?

Huck’s not conservative-he’s a populist. MB lacks class and character. Her baseless attacks on Perry proved that.
I’m a former Protest Warrior-so you can take your RINO crap and shove it.

O’Brien is doing what fascists are known for doing – drawing attention to an issue, berating anyone who disagrees with them, then moving on. However, if you read this article rather than just watch the video, you’ll notice the exchange she has with another shill for fascism. They have no intention of letting this issue die. Rather, they’re trying to keep it from going mainstream by her demand that people stop tweeting her about it so that the race baiters can continue to work undetected.

madmonkphotog on March 12, 2012 at 8:10 PM

I haven’t logged on to Twitter in over 6 mos. But, I just did so and tweeted this moron.

Shiny_Tiara on March 12, 2012 at 8:11 PM

Enjoy the fun. Obama’s 2nd term will put a stop to conservatives on the air.

This girl is the definition of a RINO. Not trying to post and bash, but it’s true and it shows in her comment. You know, whenever there’s a choice between a real conservative and a liberal Republican they will always side with the Republican in name only.

apocalypse on March 12, 2012 at 8:19 PM

Ha! I totally saw the Jedi hand motion at the end of the vid. “Stop tweeting me (Jedi magic hands)… we have moved on, people.”

It’s magical.
