#1 This is the occasion when a much younger Barack Obama was photographed smiling with Rev. Farrakhan, a photo suppressed until a few days ago lest it ruin his career prospects. Professor Dershowitz, upon being informed of the thing, announced he would not have campaigned for the gentleman in question had he known. Though to be fair, we all knew about the as yet unrevealed Khalidi video, and that did not seem to have triggered any professorial qualms.

#2 I like Dershowitz for the most part, but your description of his recent conversion is too convenient for me to put any stock in it. Too little, too late.

#4 Surely conservative Republican Black Caucus members crossed over and denounced him ?

#5 Black Dhimmicrap Christaphobic racists.

A mainstream media approved protected class of racism.

#6 As Rex says at #3. It's tribal in origin, the root of communism by the way. While there are many others, the Blombos cave drawings are a record of their attempts at civilization. Some say the Blombos date 60,000 years before the modern era. These people are not to blame, tribal 'best practices' have skewed the DNA.

While they possess remarkable regional survival skills, lads from the northern Athabasca cultures, the Yupic, Aleut, and Eyak make disappointing cricket players. The Hambletonian has yet to be won by a Shetland Pony, and so it goes. Each has it's homeland and calling.

#7 BC members and Farrakhan are birds of the same feather--antisemites.

Yep. My question is - who shot the couch, guys?

#11 Why exactly was the young Obama-Farrakhan photo such a big deal?

IMO Dershowitz is treating Obama unfairly.

In 2012, 75 y/o Colin Powell was palling around with Farrakhan in full public view.

Was there a sh*tstorm? Was there national or international outrage over a former Sec State's choice of friends?

Did any Republican or Democrat or non-US politician criticize and condemn Powell as harshly as Trump is now being criticized?

In reality Farrakhan is a member of the Western mainstream political class. Not everyone is in agreement with him on all issues, but he is 'one of our kind' in a way the deplorable Trump isn't.

#12 Unfairly? Obama had Farrakhan to the White House a bazillion times, along with that other race pimp Al Sharpton.

Al Sharpton was one of the perpetrators of the Tawana Brawley hoax. He accused innocent people of raping a girl. One of them was an assistant DA, Steven Pagones. For years, he pursued a defamation case against Sharpton and finally won.

In reality Farrakhan is a member of the Western mainstream political class

Here's your own SPLC, which is a great friend to the Far Left, describing Farrakhan. If he's mainstream, it's like kissing the Grand Wizard of the KKK. Oh wait, Hillary did that.

Louis Farrakhan heads the Nation of Islam, a group he has led since 1977 and that is based on a somewhat bizarre and fundamentally anti-white theology. Farrakhan is an anti-Semite who routinely accuses Jews of manipulating the U.S. government and controlling the levers of world power.

Farrakhan blames Jews for the slave trade, plantation slavery, Jim Crow, sharecropping and general black oppression. Farrakhan's tone grew more belligerent in June 2010, when he sent letters to several leaders of the Jewish community as well as the Southern Poverty Law Center demanding that they realize the evils they have perpetrated and that they work to further Farrakhan's goals. The letter ended with a threat to "ruin and destroy your power and influence here and throughout the world" if his terms were not met.

In His Own Words
"The Jews, a small handful, control the movement of this great nation, like a radar controls the movement of a great ship in the waters … the Jews got a stranglehold on the Congress."
— Louis Farrakhan, Saviour's Day speech, Chicago, Feb. 25, 1990

"And the Christian right, with your blindness to that wicked state of Israel … can that be the holy land, and you have gay parades, and want to permit to have a gay parade in Jerusalem when no prophet ever sanctioned that behavior. How can that be the Israel, how can that be Jerusalem with secular people running the holy land when it should be the holy people running the holy land. That land is gonna be cleansed with blood!"
— Louis Farrakhan, Saviour's Day speech, Chicago, Feb. 26, 2006

"We can now present to our people and the world a true, undeniable record of the relationship between Blacks and Jews from their own mouths and pens. These scholars, Rabbis and historians [that Nation of Islam researchers studied] have given to us an undeniable record of Jewish anti-Black behavior, starting with the horror of the trans-Atlantic slave trade, plantation slavery, Jim Crow, sharecropping, the labor movement of the North and South, the unions and the misuse of our people that continues to this very moment."
— Letter sent by Louis Farrakahn to Jewish leaders and the Southern Poverty Law Center, June 24, 2010.

#14 Elmerert Hupens2660, what happened to "no platform" for anti-Semites?

he is 'one of our kind'

Ah, I see. Tribal affiliation. This makes being a Jew-hater OK. They're ok if they're one of our kind.

#15 How bad could Farrakhan be compared to the Reverend Jeremiah Wright?

#16 A clarification:

I was trying to describe the Western political mainstream's mindset as I see it, not to praise that mindset. I am well aware of the odious nature of political figures like Farrakhan, Sharpton et al.

I thought Dershowitz treated Obama 'unfairly' insofar at least tacit implicit acceptance of non-white racism is a mainstream view.

Not everyone agrees with this kind of racists but they're still members of the establishment tribe.

If Dershowitz' outrage was sincere he would have to condemn this mainstream consensus, not single out Obama because of this one photograph.

When he supported Obama he knew full well who Obama was and what he stood for. Obama's politics had never been a secret.
