Harvard Law Professor Derrick Bell praised the anti-Semitic founder of the New Black Panther Party. Another strong supporter of Bell was eventually Obama White House counsel Cassandra Butts, the White House lawyer when the New Black Panther voter intimidation case was dismissed.
Powerline has the story of Derrick Bell praising the venomous anti-Semite Khalid Muhammad, former head of the New Black Panther Party. The dots that Powerline connected are the dots between Derrick Bell, Khalid Muhammad and the New Black Panther Party. But White House counsel Cassandra Butts was also involved in the now-famous Harvard Law School rally for Bell. Butts helped organize the rally supporting Bell and escorted him to be introduced.
Butts, nearly 20 years later, may have played a role in the dismissal of the New Black Panther voter intimidation case according to multiple reports.
As a member of the DOJ team that brought the case against the New Black Panther Party, it staggers the imagination that Barack Obama’s beloved law professor Derrick Bell had anything positive to say about this radical racist anti-Semite. This is simply disheartening. You would think “esteemed” Harvard Law professors wouldn’t say nice things about a man who called for the murder of white women and children:
We kill the women. We kill the children. We kill the babies. We kill the blind. We kill the crippled. We kill the crazies. We kill em all. We kill the faggots. We kill the lesbians. We kill them all.
Bell’s view of Khalid Muhammad? “We should really appreciate the Louis Farrakhans and the Khalid Muhammads while weve got them.
We are beginning to see why the Left went into warp drive to tell us Derrick Bell wasn’t important.
If we’ve learned anything in the last week, we learned there are some very strange social and legal circles from the far fringes, and unfortunately, the far fringes are now in power.
Now consider the strange case of Cassandra Butts (left of Bell in photo below):
In the video where Obama introduces Bell is Butts, escorting Bell to the rally. Butts is another possible player in the New Black Panther voter intimidation dismissal. Butts was counsel to the NAACP, but Deputy White House Counsel when the New Black Panther case was dismissed. Hans von Spakovsky, PJ Media contributor, has this 2011 piece possibly placing Butts in the center of the New Black Panther dismissal.
While a student, Butts praised Bell to the Pittsburgh Press:
She calls [Bell's departure from Harvard Law] “a big loss for the law school. He is very special and we need him there. . . But we also need what he is asking for.”
The Washington Times also has this series detailing key dates in the New Black Panther dismissal. Again, Butts is at the center of meetings in the White House with key DOJ officials on key dates.
Whether Butts played any role in dismissing the New Black Panther case from her perch in the White House is still unknown. We do know that Derrick Bell had kind words to say about one of the most vile racists on the American scene in the last 20 years. We also know that Cassandra Butts was, and remained, one of Derrick Bell’s biggest fans. You can’t help but wonder what other nasty surprises will be found under rocks turned over by the new media in the next few months.
she is one of the Butt sisters.....
Soledad O'Brien would term this passage "a dynamic approach to the interplay of the races" or somesuch.
“Deputy White House Counsel”
I’m surprised she was not offended by the wording of that job title:
“WHITE House? Whachoo talkin’ bout, WHITE house? Counsel in da’ house baby!/s;)
dayang! you beat me to it!
MB that is what you call a lay up!
"Kill my landlord...Kill my landlord...C-I-L-L my landlord"
Of course, they’ll blame Rush for making Bell a VERY angry man/sarcasm;)
You Muvva’s, We is in charge now.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list

"Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal".--James (Jim) Cone,

SEAN HANNITY: But Reverend Jeremiah Wright is not backing down and has not for years and in his strong stance on the teaching of black liberation theology is nothing new. He had the same things to say last spring when he appeared on "Hannity & Colmes:"
WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the '60s, systematized black liberation theology that started with Jim Cone in 1968 and the writings of Cone and the writings of Dwight Hopkins and the writings of womynist theologians and Asian theologians and Hispanic theologians, then you can't talk about the black value system.
HANNITY: But I'm a reverend
WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir?
Malik Zulu Shabazz, chairman of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (NBPP):
"We believe in a Black first philosophy and a Black Liberation Theology."
Although it [The New Black Panther Party] says it sees capitalism as the fundamental problem with the world and revolution as the solution, the new party does not draw its influences from Marxism or Maoism as the original party did. Instead, in a carefully-worded, roundabout form of ethnic nationalism, they say that Marx based his ideology and teachings on indigenous African cultures, and that the NBPP therefore need not look to Marxism or Maoism as a basis for their program, but can look to ideologies that stem directly from those African origins.
"The Justice Department originally brought the case against four armed men who witnesses say derided voters with catcalls of "white devil" and "cracker" and told voters they should prepare to be "ruled by the black man." ..."
One poll watcher called police after he reportedly saw one of the men brandishing a nightstick to threaten voters.
As I walked up, they closed ranks, next to each other, the witness told Fox News at the time. So I walked directly in between them, went inside and found the poll watchers. They said theyd been here for about an hour. And they told us not to come outside because a black man is going to win this election no matter what.
He said the man with a nightstick told him, Were tired of white supremacy, and he starts tapping the nightstick in his hand. At which point I said, OK, were not going to get in a fistfight right here, and I called the police....

There are a lot of joking comments in this thread, but really this is no joke.
This is black power nationalism. Nationalism is the foundation of “Nationalists”, those who establish a nation
and how will the fund it? They are funding it now through converting our various national and state governments to “Socialism.” Obama has not even suggested a budget duriong his 3 years in office, he plays rope-a-dope with the US green lobby in order to destroy current petroleum based US energy supplies, he allows the demographic invasion of our Southwest by illegal aliens, Obama is responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of civilians in wars in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Libya based on his personal whims and the created disarray of our senior military.I could go on.
If you want to see what Obama has in store for America, take a look at what he and his Kenyan henchman, Odinga, did in Kenya in 2006-2007: Obama instigated Intertribal genocide resulted in “shared power” with Kenya’s legitimate government.
Obama is a thoroughbred fascist. Obama must be defined, exposed and defeated as a fascist, a nationalist socialist
whose world view is based on Black Liberation Theology, bent on the calling card of all fascists “ historic justice.”
As such Obama is unfit to occupy the office of the presidency. In fact he is a traitor to the Constitution and to the American people, whose economy he intends to purposefully destroy in order to change our free enterprtise culture and recreate America in the image of his fascist Utopia, where his defined minorities rule the nation with an iron fist, and where the highest status individuals are those who run Obamas “Fourth Reich.”, and thiose who work for government rather than acheiving wealth individually under our traditional free enterprise system .
You may not belive this, but at least read the linked article. Then perhaps you will see:
Sounds to me like she had to have something to do with THIS:
Muslim Refugees, Yes Christian Refugees, No
Pamela Geller November 30, 2011
Christians are in imminent danger across the world, and yet they are being refused refugee status, while Muslim refugee immigration goes on unimpeded.
U.S. policy regarding refugee resettlement would shock most Americans if they only knew. The United Nations picks who gets to come to the U.S. as a refugee. The mandate of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is to determine which of the world’s huddled masses comes to the U.S. as humanitarian refugees. And predictably, this U.N. body is favoring Muslims. Christians from Muslim lands are being refused refugee status.
This is occurring despite the fact that in their home countries, under the Shariah, Christians face persecution and many times certain death for their religious beliefs. At the same time, whole Muslim communities are entering the U.S. by the tens of thousands per month, despite the fact that in their home countries they face no religious persecution.
Any relation to “Seymour Butts?” (snicker) B-)
