Our favorite history professor, “Paul Revere warned the British” Sarah Palin, is back to teach us a valuable lesson.
On last night’s edition of Fox News’ Hannity, the 2008 vice presidential nominee picked up on Sean Hannity’s “bombshell” video evidence (from the previous night) that back in 1990 then-Harvard student Barack Obama associated with “radical” Harvard professor Derrick Bell, founder of the critical race theory.
“Look at his embracing of Derrick Bell, the radical (editor’s note: key word here is radical) college racist professor whom he, you showed in a video last night, embraced literally and figuratively asking others to open their hearts and minds to the radical agenda of a racist like Derrick Bell who believed that white men oppress blacks and minorities,” she said. ”And Barack Obama, evidently at least at the time believed what Derrick Bell believed.”
Then Professor Palin told Hannity the clip also reveals that Obama wants to return to the days “before the Civil War.”
“He (Obama) is bringing us back Sean to, uh uh, you can harken back to days before the Civil War, when unfortunately too many Americans mistakenly believed that not all men were created equal,” she said. “Now, it has taken all these years for many Americans to understand that that gravity, that mistake, took place before the Civil War and why the Civil War had to really start changing America. What Barack Obama seems to want to do is go back to before those days when we were in different classes based on income, based on color of skin.”
So our nation’s first African-American president wants to return to the days of slavery when African-Americans were treated as property to be bought and sold, and are forced to work?

As we’ve mentioned before, we can’t wait to see the HBO film Game Change, which finally premieres tomorrow (Saturday) night at nine o’clock. It tells the true story (yes, real history) of Palin’s selection as John McCain’s running mate and how she handled the 2008 general election campaign, based on the non-fiction book by renowned journalists John Heilemann and Mark Halperin.
Here’s the trailer:
