See It: Andrew Breitbart’s So-Called Controversial Obama Footage (Video)

Here’s a followup to wild, ungrounded speculation from Zach Lisabeth on Opposing Views (video from BuzzFeed):

Before his unexpected death, conservative firebrand Andrew Breitbart was chomping at the bit to release a supposedly “explosive” video of President Obama filmed during the president’s time at Harvard Law School. The video was purported to show a young Obama making racially charged comments that Breitbart hoped might damage the president’s 2012 reelection bid …

    nothing in this is remotely controversial, nor is it even minimally about race. 

  2. Add to the fact that PBS aired it in 2008 and it’s been available since then.

    What a scoop!

    • Hmm… If Obama had Breitbart whacked, I’ll have to rethink my opposition to the NDAA.

  3.  I’ve heard more racially “charged” commentary on CNN…

    This. Changes. Everything.

    Am I missing something here?

  6. And this is ‘the video’ because it proven that it is or because we are told that it is???

    • Jin The Ninja | Mar 8, 2012 at 3:38 am |

      you’re just unused to seeing it pre con-editing job.

      • No; I just question everything

        For one, the man ‘that I had not heard of until after his death’ said at CPAC he had ‘Videos’

        Do facts mean anything?

        I never followed the guy. Too hegelian dialect for me. Beware of both ‘controlled’ sides.

        • Jin The Ninja | Mar 9, 2012 at 2:03 pm |

          my side isn’t contained within the mainstream discourse. obama has plenty to hide, but why are you interested in a white nationalist agenda that seeks to disseminate disinformation instead of discussing legitimate socio-economic issues?

          • Jin,

            I have little interest in the man, or his right wing BS.

            I just don’t see anything that say’s it is or is not ‘The video’

            You assume I’m interested and that I watch con editing jobs.

          • Jin The Ninja | Mar 10, 2012 at 2:26 pm |

            Because you’ve positioned yourself as invested in right wing conspiratorial outcomes to a right wing message.

            the tape is meaningless, even if it showed him in front of an all black student union talking about social justice- what is the difference? breitbart edited everything and used the regressive reich wing to inflame people about uninflammatory cases.

  7. There are two quick cuts near the end that look sloppy. Is there a source of this footage, unedited? 

    • Robert Grass | Mar 8, 2012 at 3:30 pm |

       The Buzzfeed video was censored. Watch the real uncensored video at and/or  There will be more videos of soetoro released soon.

    So… Obama was a radical leftist in his youth. This seems to be the way he’s being portrayed.

    Is this supposed to scare the youth away from him? I realize Obama is a sham, a fake, a proxy, but on the other hand we have these insane ideologues who shriek their crazy beliefs to the skies! 

    We have Santorum who preaches that Homosexuals seek to undo our society from within! This is insanity! The Homosexual only asks to be allowed to love and be loved! To forbid this is madness itself! I will fight!

    We have Romney who preaches the Rich are better than the Poor! Tell me why Mittens? The very foundation of this nation speaks that all are created equal! This Nation was founded on Liberal ideas Mittens, by the Musket and the Rifle!

    We have Gingrich, the lowest of the low. He has been driven off before. Proven liar again and again, like a beaten cat he slinks before us again. Refuse to feed him! It is the only humane way to drive off a stray cat!

    Finally we have the wolf in sheep’s clothing himself. Dr. Ron Paul. He speaks sweet words of lies into the ears of his followers like syrup. It blocks their hearing of the madness he preaches. He would deregulate everything? He would repeal the Civil Rights Act because he finds it unconstitutional? Like honey into their ears they hear only what they want. They do not hear the bitter over the sweet.

    Probably not what Breitbart had but what would it matter anyway. Between Bush and Obama we’ve been proven too complacent to do more than whine should the president appear on national television and stone orphans to death with the corpses of dead puppies and eat them afterward (both puppies and orphans).

  10. Lucifer Rising | Mar 8, 2012 at 4:05 am |

    I highly, HIGHLY doubt that’s the footage Breitbart was going to show the world.

    • Except that the people who work for him say it is . . . just edited “to reduce its impact.”

      • Belladonna | Mar 8, 2012 at 10:59 am |

         “Edited” being the keyword here!!

      • So the NWO took out the parts where he starts screaming “Kill whitey!”?

        • Jin The Ninja | Mar 8, 2012 at 1:41 pm |

          and the part where the predominantly white (Harvard) crowd, joins in due to black marxist paramilitary brainwashing perpetrated by the small but efficient ethnic studies depts.

    • Jin The Ninja | Mar 8, 2012 at 12:28 pm |

       when you people find the “real” footage, i’ll be happy to watch it in an archival video suite where i can break it down shot by shot.

  11. Nothing to see here except right wing paranoia and fear mongering.

    • Lee Swain | Mar 8, 2012 at 3:01 pm |

      Breibart died for the footage did he? Cheeses Infowars is the pits when comes to actual facts rather than insane paranoid delusions!

      Why didn’t he just release it then instead of teasing it? Is it more likely that he wanted to get some traction and speculation about his NONE story before people actually pointed out it was a none story?Exactly how many times did Breitbart actually deliver on his promise of having explosive footage? And how many times did he actually talk a bunch of BS and end up having F all?

      I think we can base I expectation of this footage on his past record.

  12. I think the real story is that, in 1991, Barack Obama was already rolling up his sleeves–obviously in preparation for a presidential run.

  13. why the fuck does he keep putting his right hand in and out of his pocket every time he pauses

  14. Robert Grass | Mar 8, 2012 at 3:19 pm |

    The “Buzzfeed” video is censored. is propagating disinformation. Go to and/or to watch the whole, uncensored video. There will be more videos of barry soetoro being released soon.

    • Jin The Ninja | Mar 8, 2012 at 3:41 pm |

      obama is not indonesian. and you’re the one disseminating disinfo. obama is a crooked bankster neo liberal imperialist. why not criticise him for legitimate (global) concerns as opposed to racialised right wing conspiracy?

      • Robert Grass | Mar 9, 2012 at 7:22 am |

        Huh? How did you read all that into what I wrote? The subject was the video on buzzfeed posted here on disinfo. What conspiracy? The video shows the facts. If you wish to see what I’ve written criticizing barry soetoro on other subjects, go to pertinent articles on the ten or so websites on which I comment. Feel free to criticize the words that I actually write, but don’t put words in my mouth.

        • Jin The Ninja | Mar 9, 2012 at 1:33 pm |

          oh, no one’s putting words in your mouth. it’s already full of t-bags and bullsh*t.

    • I went. The only thing Buzzfeed seems to have left out is when Obama introduces Bell and gives him a hug. SCARY!!!!

    • Why’d they change his name to something similar to bin Laden’s first name, so he’d get more votes?

  15. chinagreenelvis | Mar 8, 2012 at 6:34 pm |

    Breitbart died?


  16. I don’t see ehat was so bad about that

  17. That is not the footage Breitbart was going to release. It is possible that the footage of Obama at a communist party meeting and palling with domestic terrorists will never be released.
