“I got friends in low places…..”

 Black Panther, Harvard Professor and Long-timePersonal Mentor to Barack & Michelle Obama — Charles Ogletree Hosts Obama on weekend “Social Event” 

The list of the enemies of the United States who have taken control of the Oval Office numbers in the hundreds… this is just one more:

In the early 1970s Charles Ogletree became a campus radical, organized an Afrocentric dormitory, edited an on-campus Black Panthers newspaper at Stanford and traveled to Africa and Cuba with student activist groups.

In 1973 Ogletree was president of the Black Student Union.

  • In 1986 as a law “professor” directed Harvard’s trial advocacy workshops, where students were taught brainwashed that law was “an instrument for social and political change…a tool to empower the dispossessed and disenfranchised… and a means to make the privileged more respectful of differences.
  • Drafted a 30-page report on Judge Clarence Thomas that was instrumental in the NAACP’s vote of no confidence in the nominee. Represented former Thomas subordinate Anita Hill during the sham Senate confirmation hearings in 1991.
  • Began a Saturday School Program so that”African-American students could learn from other professionals of their own heritage“.
  • Ogletree, like so many black “leaders”, “academics” and “activists”, had a hard time keeping his eyes on his own paper”; in 2004 Harvard disciplined Ogletree for plagiarizing six paragraphs from Yale scholar Jack Balkin‘s book, What Brown v. Board of Education Should Have Said in his own book, All Deliberate Speed: Reflections on the First Half-Century of Brown v. Board of Education. Ogletree apologized, saying that he “made a serious mistake during the editorial process of completing this book, and delegated too much responsibility to others during the final editing process.”  Yes, it was the Obama answer…. bad luck and someone elses fault. Former Harvard President Derek C. Bok concluded, “There was no deliberate wrongdoing at all…He marshaled his assistants and parceled out the work and in the process some quotation marks got lost.”

Of course…. name one white liberal academic who has stood up to radical blacks in the last 40 years.

I’ll wait.

On December 8 2005, former Black Panther Party members, John L. Bowman, Hank Jones and Ray Boudreaux held a meeting at the Washington, DC office of Trans-Africa Forum. They were complaining about renewed police investigations of a 1971 police killing in San Francisco of which they had been accused.

They were indicted at the time by a grand jury, but were released on a ruling that methods used to obtain information were illegal.

The former Panthers were flanked by Danny Glover, “reparations” activist Ron Daniels, Democratic Socialists of America member Bill Fletcher, Jr. and yes…..  Charles Ogletree.

At that time Ogletree said that the community should protect the rights of the former Panthers with their lives.

“These gentlemen, Ray Boudreaux, Hank Jones and others have been victims of the most vicious forms of American terrorism and torture…It takes a village to protect its elders. We tell them today, through our presence here and through our commitment that we will provide a protective blanket over them. They will not come in this village and take these elders, except over our dead bodies.”

That could easily come to be Professor, and soon….

  1. It is totally amazing what we slept through … but hopefully, enough Americans have been rudely awakened that we can begin to repair the damage done by this administration ASAP!
