Michelle Obama and CGI Crony Were in Radical Racist Group

It was appalling enough to learn that the outrageously expensive and laughably dysfunctional ObamaCare website was primarily built by a foreign contractor on a no-bid basis, apparently because Michelle Obama’s crony Toni Townes-Whitley had been made a senior vice president. More appalling still is the milieu in which they became pals.

According to the archives of the student newspaper, Toni McCall Townes-Whitley, Princeton ’85, was chairwoman of the Organization of Black Unity and was the black representative for the Third World Center (TWC) alongside the future first lady. (Related: Michelle Obama and CGI Federal executive belonged to student group at Princeton that hosted pro-terrorist speaker)

Townes-Whitley, née McCall, was a well known black activist at Princeton at the time. She authored a college thesis titled “The Question of Diversity,” calling for more racial quotas. She wrote for a radical newspaper, ”La Lutta Continua” (“The Struggle Continues”) and organized a forum “On Being Black.”

McCall/Townes-Whitley was a militant racist who regarded colorblindness in university housing to be unsatisfactory.

McCall also brought Manning Marable, who according to Cornel West was the most famous black Communist in America, to campus in November 1984, and favorably compared his activism with that of civil rights leaders. …

At the event Marable … sided with the Marxist Nicaraguan dictatorship, encouraging black Americans to express solidarity with “the righteous movements of the Sandinistas in Nicaragua, the New Jewel Movement in Grenada, the guerrillas of El Salvador, and especially, our brothers and sisters in South Africa.”

Most of us know how that turned out.

In November 1984, TWC’s board demanded that non-white students should have the right to bar whites from meetings on campus. …

Despite [or rather, because of] the radical and racist character of TWC, both Michelle Obama and Toni Townes-Whitley were active participants.

“The Third World Center was our life,” Angela Acree, Obama’s best friend at Princeton, told The Boston Globe in June 2008. “We hung out there, we partied there, we studied there [in Liberation Hall].”

“Not a day went by that I did not see Michelle [Obama] at the Center,” Czerni Brasuelle, TWC’s director at the time, told the Daily Princetonian in its November 5, 2008 issue.

The comrades remained friends long after their college days.

[T]he First Couple received Townes-Whitley and her husband during a 2010 Christmas event, taking the time to pose for a White House photo that Townes-Whitley posted on her Facebook page. (Related: CGI Federal executive spent ‘Christmas with the Obamas’)

Taking on Townes-Whitley as a senior vice president in 2010 was an excellent move for the Canadian company CGI, which stands for something unpronounceable in French. In addition to the extravagant HealthCare.gov boondoggle,

In 2010, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) awarded a $20 million contract to CGI. In 2011, the Department of Labor selected CGI to move it to the cloud. In 2012 and 2013, the Administrative Office of U.S. Courts, the U.S. Railroad Retirement Board, ($21 million) USAID (received part of a $900 million contract), and the EPA ($15 million) awarded multi-million-dollar contracts to CGI.

The Washington Post notes that the company has doubled its federal business over a year, to more than $8 billion in future orders, offering as an explanation that the company has “learned quickly” in the federal contracting game.

What they learned is that under the system we have now, you don’t get ahead through merit. You get ahead by promoting a racist radical who is friends with Michelle Obama.

All smiles as they loot us into oblivion. That’s Toni next to Obama.
