Lawrence Lessig is a friend of Obama as well as technology advisor and Obama rally speaker. Obama and Lessig worked together at the University of Chicago several years ago. Lessig is openly gay and promotes a radical gay agenda. Lessig has a video depicting Jesus as gay and has presented the videos at multiple seminars.
Lessig has a website and a blog. On Lessig’s blog he writes about his friendship and support for Barack Obama. Well, guess what. Lessig has closed his blog today, May 2, 2008, until June, just before the NC and IN primaries. Coincidence? Not likely.
Here are some excerpts from Lessig’s blog that you currently cannot access:
“”DON’T DO THIS!” a friend wrote, a friend who never uses allcaps, a friend who cares genuinely about what’s good for me, and who believes that what’s good for me depends in part upon how easily I can talk to the next administration. “He is NOT going to win. She has it sewed up. DON’T burn your bridges before they’re hatched — so to speak.”
So was my suggestion that I come clean publicly about what many here will have intuited long ago — tha I support Barack Obama for President — met by my friend. But I said as much in March, 2004, though I expected this year would be four years later. Barack was a colleague from way back. I’ve supported every campaign since the first. And from the very first moments I knew the guy, I thought that he was precisely the sort we should be able to elect as President.”
“Superstitious about the 20% rule, I said nothing about my friend, Barack Obama, who has won (with a healthy 60% majority) the Democratic nomination for Senate in Illinois. Barack was an adjunct at the University of Chicago while I was teaching there, and then just as I left, became a regular professor. He is an astonishingly decent and bright forty-something star. Siva points to a great piece about the race. And keep your eyes on 2012: when he will no longer be known as the 5th whatever, but will become the 3d and 1st in one year. (Consider it the Lessig Sunday Puzzle).”
“If gay peoples’ “coming out” is ambiguating, so too might be heterosexual peoples’ “going in.” This “going in” for heterosexual people could include a variety of moves: permitting confusion about whether or not they are gay; foregoing opportunities to identify opposite sex partners as spouses; making affirmative statements that align them with gay, lesbian, and bisexual people, and not qualifying those statements with disclosure of their own heterosexuality. And just as Griffin promoted civil rights for African-Americans by even temporarily assuming a black identity, so too heterosexuals can promote gay rights by tolerating greater ambiguity about sexual orientation.”
Here are some comments about Lawrence Lessig:
“Stanford Law Professor Lawrence Lessig likes to treat his audiences to a short video that doesn’t always go over so well. In it, Jesus Christ lip-syncs Gloria Gaynor’s late ’70s disco hit “I Will Survive,” during which he strips down to just a diaper, effeminately struts along a city street and finally gets run over by a speeding bus.
Lessig showed the film during his keynote address to the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo in San Francisco in 2006 (reportedly causing audience members to exit in disgust), as well as to an assembled group of Google employees recently.
The antics of a trendy left-wing law school teacher who doubles as cybergeek would normally be of little note. But a few years down the information superhighway we may be speaking of Justice Lawrence Lessig should Obama be elected president.”

“”In addition to happily showing off blasphemous images of Christ, Lessig is also known as a digital communist,” Erickson said. “Lessig believes there should be no such thing as intellectual property rights – patents and copyrights should be tossed.”
Lessig has worked actively on behalf of Obama to explain to journalists the candidate’s technology plan, which calls for the appointment of a technology czar to serve in the White House under the title of chief technology officer.
Obama’s campaign website currently proclaims Lessig as one of the industry experts supporting his technology plan to create a chief technology officer.
Lessig, on his website, endorses Obama, describing the candidate as a friend and former colleague.
In August 2006, several people in the audience walked out when Lessig showed the “Jesus Will Survive” video in his keynote address to the LinuxWorld Conference and Expo in San Francisco.”
