The way the Left rigs the game…

Joel Pallock, the new editor-in-chief for Breitbart, was on Soledad O’Brien’s CNN show a week or so ago to talk about the Breitbart clip of Obama introducing Professor Derrick Bell of Harvard. It wasn’t very damning–there are more installments to come–but O’Brien was asking what about Dr. Bell was so bad that Obama hugging him was a big deal. Pollack went on to say that Bell had been one of the first, and biggest, proponents of “Critical Race Theory” in the U.S.–and that it is a radical theory based on the theory that White supremacy is innate in our system of laws and that racism is so fundamental and so ingrained in our culture, the only way to compensate for it is by making the system unequal through programs like affirmative action, minority set asides in contracts, etc.

Soledad argued quite vehemently that White supremacy wasn’t a claim of Critical Race Theory (I assume to try to buffet any criticism of Obama for being so close to Bell–but it was really kind of strange in the moment of the discussion). She apparently had a staffer reading her the Wikipedia intro to Critical Race Theory due to her inability to speak to it specifically (and there has even been somewhat of an editing war breaking out at Wiki because some have tried to erase the original reference to White supremacy that was further down in the article). So Pollack was accused of everything under the sun, including being a racist (a surprise, I’m sure, to his black, South African wife whose mother was awarded an medal of achievement by Nelson Mandela himself).

At any rate, in order to try to buttress her initial claim that White supremacy wasn’t a part of Critical Race Theory, Soledad had another professor, Emory’s Dr. Dorothy Brown, come on and claim that White supremacy played no part in Critical Race Theory. Here’s the exchange:

O’Brien: One of the things you heard Mr. Pollak say, he said that Critical Race Theory is all about White supremacy… So you’re a professor, you teach this theory, you’ve written a book about it. Is it all about white supremacy?

Brown: No, it’s nothing about white supremacy. When I hear “white supremacy,” I think of the Ku Klux Klan. Critical Race Theory is the opposite of that. So, honestly, I have no idea what he was talking about.

Except the book that Dr. Brown wrote states explicitly:

Although CRT does not employ a single methodology, it seeks to highlight the ways in which the law is not neutral and objective, but designed to support White supremacy and the subordination of people of color.

So Soledad doubles down on her ignorance, draws in a professor, compounding it into a lie, and Soledad’s audience will forever be ignorant of the fact that White supremacy is the foundation of CRT while the left has taken it upon itself to make her lie into the truth. Just a microcosm of the fantasy of the left and the ends they’ll go to to make it seem real.
