    MSNBC Panel Gets into Heated Discussion Over Arrest of Harvard Professor - Video

    Here is fascinating video from MSNBC's Morning Joe today where a panel of the regulars got into a rather animated back-and-forth about the arrest of Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates by a Cambridge, Massachusetts police officer, and President Obama's saying the Cambridge police "acting stupidly." The panel appeared to wind up divided on the issue by race, with all the African-American panelists flatly saying the officer was wrong and being totally defensive of Gates and the remarks of President Obama. Mike Barnacle and Mika Brzezinski tried to challenge those assumptions and defended the officer as having a job to do.

    Gates lawyer Charles Ogletree Jr. was young Obama's mentor
    Radical black activist tied to Black Panthers, supports reparations


    JERUSALEM The lawyer representing Henry Louis Gates Jr., the Harvard professor at the center of a national race controversy, was a mentor of both Barack and Michelle Obama and served on the president's black advisory council.

    Charles Ogletree Jr., himself a Harvard University professor, is closely linked to the Black Panthers and to radical black ideology. He is a key member of the reparations movement and once pursued the possibility of bringing a class action lawsuit to win reparations for descendants of African slaves.

    "I met Barack when he arrived at Harvard Law School in fall of 1988. He was quiet and unassuming, but had an incredibly sharp mind and a thirst for knowledge," Ogletree said in an interview last year with Essence Magazine.

    "Even then I saw his ability to quickly grasp the most complicated legal issues and sort them out in a clear, concise fashion," said Ogletree.

    Ogletree explained Obama was a regular participant in an after-class activity the Harvard professor created called the Saturday School Program a series of workshops and meetings held Saturday mornings designed to expose minority students to issues in the study of law.

    Meet the man at center of Obama's race controversy
    Gates immortalized communist, linked to radical black activists


    JERUSALEM Henry Louis Gates Jr., the Harvard professor at the center of the current national race controversy, has recruited radical black activists to his university department, is a prominent supporter of reparations for the descendents of slaves and has immortalized a communist and socialist activist.

    Since 1991, Gates has been teaching African American studies at Harvard, where he serves as the director of the W. E. B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research. De Bois, an American civil rights activist, sociologist, historian and author, was an avowed communist and also a socialist sympathizer.

    Du Bois was for a brief time a member of the Socialist Party. In 1927 he infamously traveled to the USSR, where he called the Soviet system "the most hopeful vehicle for the world." Eight years later, he published the book "Black Reconstruction," which offered a Marxist interpretation of the Reconstruction Era.

    The leftist icon officially joined the communist cause in 1950, when he ran for the New York State Senate on the American Labor Party ticket. He lost the election, but eight years later joined Trotskyists, ex-communists, and independent radicals in proposing the creation of a united left-wing coalition to run for seats in New York State elections.

    Du Bois joined the Communist Party USA in 1961. He emigrated to Ghana, where he became a naturalized citizen, living in the country's socialist police state. Two years later, the Communist Party named its new youth group the W.E.B. DuBois Clubs.

    Serving as director for the Harvard institute immortalizing Du Bois, Gates cultivated black radicals to his race studies department, most prominently bringing in Cornel West, a controversial adviser on Louis Farrakhan's Million Man March with close ties to socialist and black extremist groups. West is a declared personal friend of Farrakhan.

    Gates also lured to Harvard socialist sympathizer Kwame Anthony Appiah, a Ghanaian philosopher, cultural theorist and novelist, as well as William Julius Wilson, who is close to the Democrat Socialists of America.

    Gates authored two books with West, a long-time member and honorary chair of the Democrat Socialists of America. West served on the black advisory board of Obama's presidential campaign.

    House to consider resolution demanding Obama apologize to Crowley

    @ 10:39 pm by Michael O'Brien
    Congress would demand that President Obama apologize to the officer the president said had "acted stupidly" in the arrest of a prominent Harvard professor under a resolution set to be introduced by one Michigan lawmaker.




    Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-Mich.) will introduce a House resolution on Monday demanding Obama retract and apologize for remarks he has made about Cambridge Police Sergeant James Crowley this past week.
