Breitbart's Relaunch: The Vetting, Part I: Barack's Love Song To Alinsky

By Susan Duclos has relaunched and now all the Breitbart "Big" sites Big Government, Big Journalism, Big Peace and Big Hollywood can all be easily accessed right from tabs at the top, along with BreitbartTV.

With this relaunching of comes the one of the last pieces Andrew Breitbart wrote before he so unexpectedly passed away last week, fulfilling a promise Breitbart made when he spoke to the CPAC crowd where he gave clue of what he intended to do this election year in regards to Barack Obama. Breitbart said "I have videos, this election we’re going to vet him. We are going to vet him from his college days to show you why racial division and class warfare are central to what hope and change was sold in 2008."

Earlier this month, on Fox News' Sean Hannity show, Steve Bannon reiterated Andrew Breitbart's CPAC claims that he was in possession of tapes of Barack Obama during his Harvard years and would be releasing them in a week to ten days as well as a new website that Breitbart had been working to launch over the last couple of years.

The relaunch is here and so is part one of the Barack Obama vetting process Breitbart promised everyone and this first segment according to the site, was written by none other than Andrew Breitbart before his untimely death.

We begin with a column Andrew wrote last week in preparation for today’s Big relaunch--a story that should swing the first hammer against the glass wall the mainstream media has built around Barack Obama.

He starts the vetting process, where candidates pasts are looked into to determine the character and leanings of candidates, something the main stream media never bothered to do with Obama, in 1998, and it is fitting that this is the first segment of Breitbart's parting gift.

In 1998, a small Chicago theater company staged a play titled The Love Song of Saul Alinsky, dedicated to the life and politics of the radical community organizer whose methods Obama had practiced and taught on Chicago’s South Side.

Obama was not only in the audience, but also took the stage after one performance, participating in a panel discussion that was advertised in the poster for the play.

Breitbart provides the poster for the play and the press release, both showing the name "Baraka" Obama, then goes on to explain the theme behind the play which was, indeed, a love-fest dedicated to Saul Alinsky and his radical socialist beliefs and how he was the original Occupier.

The play finishes with Alinsky announcing he’d rather go to Hell than Heaven. Why? “More comfortable there. You see, all my life I’ve been with the Have-Nots: here you’re a Have-Not if you’re short of money, there you’re a Have-Not if you’re short of virtue. I’d be asking more questions, organizing them. They’re my kind of people – Hell would be Heaven for me.”

Interesting that when we listen to the Occupiers of today, which Barack Obama incited, then encouraged, to create the Occupy Wall Street movement, we see that very "have" and "have-not" theme being brought to life on a national level.

The first segment in the Obama vetting process ends with Breitbart showing who the other panelists on the stage with Obama were.

Read the whole thing.

In death, Breitbart is still doing more to vet the man we call President, than the traditional media has bothered to do from 2007 to 2012.

Kudos to his team, writers, editors, and staff who are keeping with Breitbart's vision as "guardian protecting Americans from the left’s “objective” loyal scribes. "

[Update] Larry Solov at Big Journalism announces the relaunch:

Dear Readers:

Today, as Andrew dreamed and planned, we launch what he called "Breitbart 2.0."

Many of you wondered what he was working on so hard during the last year of his life. Here it is.

This was Andrew’s design. And it is Big, like everything else about him. It took him – and all of us – sleepless nights and countless hours to make it a reality.

We go forward infused with Andrew's fire, his fight, his humor and his warrior spirit.

His voice lives on now through us and through you - the army of friends and citizen journalist contributors he so deeply inspired and whom he, in turn, admired.

Andrew's battle - our battle - has only just begun.
