Posted on 03/15/2012 7:22:28 AM PDT by mojitojoe
The story of Cassandra Butts is an important example of how Critical Race Theory and its adherents continue to shape President Barack Obama's worldview and his administration.
At Harvard Law School from 1988-1991, Butts was one of the student advocates of Professor Derrick Bells strike for "faculty diversity." She was also a fast friend of Obamas, whose career she has helped to promote from the halls of the Harvard Law Review to the White House.
Her role in the Obama White House is not a mystery. Rep. Harold Ford Jr. noted on MSNBC on January 22, 2009--shortly after Obama's inauguration--that Butts is a dear, dear friend of the president who will watch his policy back, and will be willing to sort of reach out into Washington and sort of delve deeper and try to find some serious public policy answers.
But just what sort of policy answers does Butts support? Her relationship with her mentor, Bell, yields some answers.
It was Butts who invited Obama to speak in front of the audience in that now infamous 1990 video in which Obama hugged Bell (Remnick 213), and it is Butts who is apparently pictured next to Bell at that rally. Bell thanked Butts in the forward to Bells controversial 1992 textbook, Race, Racism and American Law, for contributing research and editing. Obama later taught Bells texts in his own course on racism and the law at the University of Chicago Law School.

The two shared a circle of friends, as Politico noted in 2008, and a vision for how the world worked. As she later told the Chicago Tribune on January 17, 2008, Butts and Obama would spend time together just sitting around and talking about how we were going to change the world...How do you take this thing were learning in law school and make a difference on the issues we care about?
Despite the supposed permanence of racism, Butts soon found a welcome home for her views in the Democratic Party and in liberal Washington think tanks.....
During that New Black Panther Party scandal, Butts was also front and center in White House meeting with key Department of Justice officials, according to The Washington Times.......
Butts also worked with the Holder DOJ to stop anti-fraud voter I.D. laws, which she had long opposed at the Center for American Progress, providing intellectual heft behind the controversial policy that still remains a centerpiece of the Obama administration's agenda, legally and politically..........
Crucially, at the White House, Butts was trusted to put Obamas stamp on the judiciary. According to The Washington Post, she spent lots of time filling 69 vacant judicial spots...........
Butts was not the only practioner or supporter of Critical Race Theory in the Obama administration. There was also Preeta Bansal, who served as Obamas General Counsel at Office of Management and Budget and Senior Policy Advisor until 2011. Bansal is also a leader at the American Constitution Society (ACS), a group that, contrary to its name, believes in a living Constitution and supports radical critiques of the document. Bansal even co-authored a 1988 Yale Law Review article with none other than Bell himself; the article that suggests white racism was at the heart of the Reagan Revolution.
Obama has admitted more than once that he hung out with radicals, socialists Marxists and other revolutionary types in his college days. So why is anyone surprised? His mother was a Marxist as were his maternal grandparents and supposedly the Kenyan sperm donor that was his father. He has known nothing else from cradle to today. Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayres, literally everyone that he has associated with since he was potty trained was a radical and Anti-American.
What we’re gonna do right here is go back, way back, back into time.
When the only people that existed were troglodytes...cave men...
cave women...Neanderthal...troglodytes. Let’s take the average
cave man at home, listening to his stereo. Sometimes he’d get up,
try to do his thing. He’d begin to move, something like this:
“Dance...dance”. When he got tired of dancing alone, he’d look
in the mirror: “Gotta find a woman gotta find a woman gotta find a
woman gotta find a woman”. He’d go down to the lake where all the
woman would be swimming or washing clothes or something. He’d look
around and just reach in and grab one. “Come here...come here”.
He’d grab her by the hair. You can’t do that today, fellas, cause
it might come off. You’d have a piece of hair in your hand and she’d
be swimming away from you (ha-ha). This one woman just lay there,
wet and frightened. He said: “Move...move”. She got up. She was a
big woman. BIG woman.
Her name was Bertha. Bertha Butt. She was one
of the Butt sisters.
He didn’t care. He looked up at her and said:
“Sock it to me sock it to me sock it to me sock it to me sock it to me
sock it to me sock it to me sock it to me!”. She looked down on him.
She was ready to crush him, but she began to like him. She said:
“I’ll sock it to ya, Daddy”. He said: “Wha?”. She said:
“I’ll sock it to ya, Daddy”. You know what he said? He started it way
back then. I wouldn’t lie to you. When she said
“I’ll sock it to ya, Daddy” he said “Right on! Right on! Hotpants!
LOL! There is a little pattern beginning to emerge. o bama had a tranny nanny named Turdi, now Sandra Butt..... just sayin..
We aren’t surprised, but you would be surprised how many people aren’t news junkies and since the MSM won’t report anything, they don’t have a clue. Remember the videos during the last election when o bama voters didn’t even know that Palin wasn’t his VP choice or who Pelosi was? You seriously think many of them know this in depth “stuff”?
I don’t know anything about Cassandra Butts however the name reminds me of one of my favorite subscriber names from my customer service days: Ophelia Knox.
When I first heard Breitbart talking about his upcoming vetting of obunghole at CPAC, I was encouraged that we would see some good stuff to help defeat this POS in November. So far, I have been unimpressed with the show. We already know about the scum obunghole has/had as associates. The rest of the sheep don’t seem to know or care about what has been released recently. Unless there is a smoking gun, say obunghole denouncing whitey in his own words, I really don’t see any legs to this story.
Any relation to Seymour Butts?
Sorry, need a bit of levity. Admin, do your thing.
I can only imagine what a conversation between these two would sound like just sitting around chewing the fat:
1) Hey, how’s your stash holding up. I read Saul’s new book last night, Far out man.
2) How do you suppose we can achieve our goal of reparations
from whitie. Not sure yet, pass the doobie.
3) Doesn’t the U.S. suck. Got anymore coke left.
4) I am dedicating my life to bring whitie down, far out.
5) I so admire Castro, Mao, and Karl Marx. I am into them also.
Cassandra Q. Butts
>>Any relation to Seymour Butts?<<
Cousin is Anita Mann who works at Sofa King. Also cousin to Mike Hunt...
There is a positive result of Obama’s winning the presidency. He has clearly disclosed the rot that has set in in this nation.
Only village idiots think communism is a viable form of government. Adherents of that philosophy should be met with finger pointing, snickers and laughter at every appearance.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list

She looks like Moochellie.

A lot of important information in the article and # 1.

Students occupy Deans office at Harvard Law School
1:00:17: Visual: Shots of Harvard Law students studying their textbooks as they occupy the Deans office in the administration building of Harvard Law School. Most of the students are African American. Marcus Jones reports that 50 Harvard Law School students marched into the administration building in the afternoon; that most of the students are African American; that many of the students wore black as a show of solidarity.
In May 1988, Harvard Law students, borrowing from Alinskys Rules for Radicals,
and foreshadowing the Occupy movement of 2011, occupied the Harvard Law
Schools deans office. The students were supporting Professor Derrick
Bells demand that the law school hire professors on the basis of race.
One of the students dressed in black and occupying the deans
office appears to be Michelle Obama (Harvard Law 88). Here is a link
to the grainy video. (lower right at about ten seconds in, wearing white Keds):
What does the "Q" stand for? Maybe Quota Queen?
