Obama’s Professor and America’s Cultural Crisis

No man more exemplifies the Left’s half-century assault on America’s intellectual and academic traditions than celebrity professor and intellectual con artist Cornell West. Thrust into cultural prominence most recently thanks to his ties to President Obama, to whom he has acted, together with the anti-American preacher Jeremiah Wright, as a spiritual mentor, the radical West also typifies the decline and degradation of standards in the American university. As David Horowitz illustrates in his devastating new pamphlet, “Obama’s Professor and America’s Cultural Crisis,” West is an improbable intellectual icon – an apologist for racists and anti-Semites; a cheerleader for Marxism; and a perpetrator of books of pseudo-cerebral nonsense that are celebrated by his legions of fans in inverse correlation to their literary merit. For anyone wishing to understand America’s current cultural predicament, the destructive career of Cornel West shows with alarming clarity the grave damage that the progressive onslaught has wrought.

We have kept printing costs down and are offering bulk copies at just $1.00 per booklet for orders of 25 or more, or $3.00 for a single copy.

    This is a great read. Let conservatives experience their sensibilities affirmed and uneasy feelings about today's left brilliantly explained. And let liberals try and refute this truly great summation of the threat facing us from within – and why Obama makes so many so queasy.

        Agreed, and wouldn't be surprised if posted by a plant from the Left. (notice it is posted by "guest".)

      To "Guest";
      What kind of an isidious comment is that?

      People like you just don't belong in this forum.
      You put down blacks and women like they are beneath you.
      How dare you, sir. You must be a Nazi!

    • Peter E. Coleman

      You must rank high in the esteem of your Tohigh School Teachers and a poster child of its administration. That's social justice for ya. Get them young and make em dumb.

      Must be tough being a A student despite a heavy curve and adjustments for cultural circumstances.

    I couldn't read the whole thing. It began to spoil my digestion. A passing editorial comment on one of his speeches summarizes his whole being for me – "incoherent claptrap." Sadly, to some degree, I sense that in Obama, too. This period will go down in history as one of history's greatest ironies – we elected a black man who, along with his associates will have put race relations in America back by sixty years.

    • Jim C.

      Well, you make quite a claim: the election of Obama is going to put race relations back 60 years.

      But you don't back it up with anything. Do you have policies you can point to, or perhaps Obama's own actions so far which have led to this deterioration? Or can I just assume you're full of sh!t, then?

      • Peter E. Coleman

        If your living in the Ghetto already you have everything to worry about. By the time Obama and his platform of Social Justice really hits home, your going to have a slew of new neighbors. And guess what. Obama will need to take some of his money back from you to help support the rest of your new neighbors.

        If you don't live in the ghetto, you may wish to get a head start and try to beat the rush.

          Should I hold my breath and wait for this prediction (always "predictions") to come true?

    Again the hipocrasy of the left, or better referred to as COMMUNISTS, I wonder if the whole new International World Order was coined by this speck of fecal matter.
    Keep embracing these type of insidious persons Obama, so eventually the rest of the sleeping masses might awaken to realize that soon we'll get to experience the old Soviet way of life.

  • Bob Cotten

    White liberals THOUGHT they were electing a black man to the presidency but instead they elected an African colonial with as much contempt for American blacks as for American whites. What was supposed to be Bill Cosby with political talent has turned into Robert Mugabe with an attitude — and they and Cornell West can't tell the difference.

    • Jim C.

      Oh please. Barack Obama makes Bill Cosby look like Huey Newton.

  • http://intensedebate.com/people/Joemyxplyx Joemyxplyx

    I forget who said it. But in a review of Cornell West's career, the reviewer called him the Stepin Fetchit of liberalism. That's probably unfair to Steppin Fetchit who was very talented.

    Only because of liberal/progressive patronization of a race could someone this untalented and unqualified hold high position.

  • davidka

    As a wise man said, we think we won the Cold War because the USSR is broken up. But they think they won the Cold War because they have injected all their poisonous ideas into our universities and other institutions, where they now dominate academia, "intellectual" discussion, politics, mass media, many, many cities and communities, many courts, and now, G-d help us, the presidency. Who won? Who is winning?

    • Peter E. Coleman

      All the Communists escaped but they still had work to do as Communists.

      Now we have diversity, Practiced as identity politics. In another time it was the old Demoncratic notion of separate but equal. Only writ much larger.

    • Tim

      Very good post. I couldn't agree more

  • Yetwave

    The intellectuly insubstantial Cornel West is an easy target. His ideas are small and his image large. His engorged self is an inviting target for those who would otherwise wage war with reasoned argument. Cornel's success owes more to African American oral tradition, verbal mesmerization, than it does to any intellectual tradition, be it westerrn, African or of any other source.

    Thank you again David Horowitz for an important and troubling message. God help us…Some suggested and related reading" "The World Turned Upside Down" by Melanie Phillips and Dr. Jamie Glazov's "United in Hate."

  • Elaine

    Beware of those who cant make fun, or laugh at themselves. Feel some pity for those that trip over their own tongues, and are encouraged to repeat the inane remarks. They will never learn.

  • GodsSeer

    How do we impeach this faux president impostor? Get it going NOW..

    • guestspeaker

      Yeah, we need a hero. I won't hold my breath waiting for one though.
      I don't vote anymore, can't trust anyone so I look to God (Elohim) as my hero, and His Son (Yeshua/EmmanuEl) as my saviour.

      You'd have to pressure the entire world to impeach this 'faux president'. Did you see the last two hours of 24 and how complicated it would be to remove one man?
      No, only a great tribulation can do away with these scoundrels. The next administration-same circus, different clowns!

    • Tim

      He can only be impeach for high crimes or gross deroliction of his duties. Unfortunatly it has to be decided by the other idiots in Washington who are as guilty as he is for letting it happen. This idiot was NEVER qualified to be President in the first place. He had never handled a budget, was a poor student, and had questionable associations. It was an unfortunate result of affirmative action.

    "… pseudo-cerebral nonsense …"

    In addition to teddy bear Muhammad, Cornell West is my viewers choice for the "face" on the paper back edition of "United In Hate," the Jamie Glasov book about the twin hate ideologies of supremacist Marxism and supremacist Islamism.

    STOP! Islamization Of America

  • Neil

    This info should be passed along to Glenn Beck, as he's the only broadcaster with guts enough to put this material on his radio and television show. Perhaps this information might cause some individuals to reassess their support for the so-called Democrat candidate in the next presidential election.

    • guestspeaker

      Elections may buy us some time but the real answer is, as Glenn reminds us all the time, God. And in this nation, His Son Yeshua.

      Since this nation was founded on Christian principals, then it is these principals that we, a nation of people, should return to. I believe we should have written these Christian principles into our founding documents. Maybe we wouldn't be fighting off all these foreign people right about now.
      Pity. We are still such a young nation, but alas, sometimes the good do die young!

      Unfortunately, the spirit of 'harlotry' (sins of Sodom and Gomorrah) have replaced this nations original Christian principles. You've heard it all before and it was never truer–'If God doesn't judge this nation, then He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah'!
      Just saying.

  • guestspeaker

    Please don't confuse me 'Guestspeaker' with this 'Guest' OK?

    The last time I saw this yahoo Cornell West was on the Tavis Smiley show and I wasn't smile-in! Tavis and Charlie Rose are PBS channelers for the Left, Hollywood and the nwo (Clinton's Third Way) or in other words, the White House.

    David Horowitz nailed Cornell West when he described him as "a perpetrator of books of pseudo-cerebral nonsense"!

  • USMCSniper

    Why do you remove my posts? All I have to say is that Cornell West is a racist charlatan on a free ride who hasn't done anything significant in his entire life except race bait and agitate to stay in the spotlight. White guilt is the only reason he is not sweeping the floors at Harvard rather than holding a tenured professorship.

    • Guestspeaker

      I think the answer is this; you're attacking him on the basis of the color of his skin RATHER then the content of his character.

      • USMCSniper

        Where is the racism? By objective standards, academically he is a joke. He has punlished nothing of any significance. His commentary on the talk show circuit is a constant hating whitey diatribe. He hates white people and openly shows it. The content of his character? Almost none.

        • Jacob

          Well, he did publish one academic book: "The American Evasion of Philosophy", his study of pragmatism. But that was in 1989, now well over 21 years ago. It was even a long time period apart from 2002, when West had the infamous encounter with Larry Summers (who I think was entirely justified in suggesting that West produce new academic research, whether in the form of a book or a scholarly paper).

    It just shows how the Liberal Universities are eroding the minds of the young and how far someone with this mentality can dangerously get. ie Obama. It will take 40 years to undo the damage Obama is doing to this country. God help us if he gets re-elected.
