An edited version of the video – minus the section in which Obama heaps praise on Professor Bell – was posted earlier on the BuzzFeed.com. Leftists and Obama apologists dismissed the video as inconsequential and racist. Eric Boehlert of Media Matters for America tweeted:
“look @mmfa has been saying this for 2+ yrs: the Breitbart crew = complete clowns. tonight more ‘n more pple are figuring that out; #good”
Boehlert can’t argue with the video’s content; after all, it documents actual events. Instead, he resorts to the standard Alinsky tactic of ridiculing the messenger. He doesn’t begin to address whether Obama’s association with Bell should have been revealed before the 2008 election.
