    Release of concealed 2005 Obama-Farrakhan photo shows first post at Legal Insurrection was prescient

    Release of concealed 2005 Obama-Farrakhan photo shows first post at Legal Insurrection was prescient

    Obama was Door No. 2: Alan Dershowitz now says he never would have campaigned for Obama had he known.

    A reporter withheld a 2005 photo of Senator Barack Obama smiling next to Louis Farrakhan at a Congressional Black Caucus gathering until a few days ago.

    The reporter said he didn’t want to hurt Obama’s political career, as we reported in Journalist Releases Photo of Obama With Farrakhan Hidden From Public Since 2005.

    The photographer was interviewed on Tucker, and made it clear he was pressured to conceal the photo:

    Why would hobnobbing with Farrakhan have been damaging? It’s not for people like Linda Sarsour and other fringe players.

    But for a presidential candidate, there would be no denying that Farrakhan was a well-known anti-American anti-Semite and anti-White racist, and had been known as such for decades.

    I covered the public knowledge of Farrakhan’s open anti-Semitism when I covered Keith Ellison’s run for DNC Chair, Keith Ellison blames “right-wing smear campaign” for his Farrakhan and Israel controversies:

    The excuse that he was unaware of just what Farrakhan was just doesn’t hold up. By the time of the Million Man March in October 1995, the media had been saturated for years with criticisms of Farrakhan’s anti-white, anti-semitic rhetoric.,16641,19940228,00.html

    Had the Obama-Farrakhan photo been released, it would have added context to other problematic Obama connections, like Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers. It also might have given even greater pressure for the L.A. Times to release a tape of Obama attending a speech by anti-Israel extremist Rashid Khalidi (that tape has never been released).

    The very first post at Legal Insurrection was on October 12, 2008, Obama is “Door No. 2” in which I suggested the public Obama may not be the real Obama (emphasis added):

    As in Let’s Make a Deal, choosing Door No. 2 carries great risks. So does choosing Obama.

    Obama may be a post-racial healer, or he may be someone who carefully uses race and false accusations of racism to advance his political career. Obama may not have known about Jeremiah Wright’s political race-baiting, or he may have known but not cared. Obama may be someone who views this country as inherently good, or he may secretly share the views of his political enabler, William Ayers, that this country is inherently bad. We may know Obama better than Jeremiah Wright and William Ayers know Obama, or we may not know Obama at all.

    Obama may be everything good, or the promise Obama embodies may just be a figment of our own imagination.

    Obama is the perfect vehicle for imagining hope, because he has almost no record. Obama is a blank canvas upon which we can paint our imagined hope. Obama has avoided almost every hard issue that has confronted him in his political career, choosing to vote “present” (literally or figuratively) hundreds of times.

    Just about the only thing we know about Obama is what he has told us about himself. To inquire deeper invites accusations that one is a “smear merchant” and using “racially tinged subtexts.”

    … I will not gamble on the presidency. I will not choose Door No. 2 by voting for Obama.

    Alan Dershowitz says he never would have campaigned for Obama had he known of the Farrakhan photo:–qR4?t=4m9s

    We didn’t need the Farrakhan photo to know not to vote for Obama.

    But it would have helped fill in at least one part of what was behind Door No. 2 for many other people.

    Can anyone here name one big name liberal/Demorat that has EVER told the truth about their real intent when running for office? It doesn’t get much better for the supporters like Dershowitz. As has been written, we know more about Thomas Jefferson than we do Barack Obama. Only with a compliant and adoring msm could this have ever happened. I still cannot imagine a presidential candidate telling the public that he has sealed all of his early records! That should have been an automatic disqualification. On AmericanThinker, a writer there has proposed that we use the new acronym of DMIC in place of msm to tell the real involvement that they have with the Demorat party. BTW, it stands for Demorat Media Industrial Complex.

    Dershowitz is a product of his time and environment, nothing more. While very intelligent, he has been blinded by the ideology in which he was raised or lived. He became a liberal, racial angst ridden man, because that was the atmosphere in which he lived. So, he supported Barry Soetoro based solely upon the color of his skin, and possibly because he was Ivy League educated. Not unexpected. The same mentality also exists in both conservatives and moderates.

    However, as we mature, we often become more clear sighted. As the liberal movement, in this country, has moved so far onto the fringe, many late 20th Century liberals, of high intelligence, have recognized the liberal mentality for what it is, insanity. Welcome back, Mr. Dershowitz.

      He’s ‘back,’ but we have to be sure his past remains attached: kind of like reformed criminals, who now advise honest people how to avoid being victims of crime.

      Dersh should always be introduced as ‘former obama supporter’, Alan Dershowitz.’

    They are corrupt and they know it. Keenly. Why do you think they spend so much time virtue signaling?

    Alan is lying. This type of information was being talked about even while the photo itself was being hidden. Alan, like everyone else who voted for this POS, didn’t want to know.
