White House Christmas 2010: The Obama’s pose with Michelle’s Princeton classmate, senior vice president of (abysmal failure Obamacare/HealthCare.gov build) CGI Federal Senior VP Toni Townes-Whitley.
Par for Michelle Obama’s radical LWE course…
(The Daily Caller) –First Lady Michelle Obama and her Princeton classmate whose company received the no-bid government contract to build the HealthCare.gov Obamacare website were both members of a black student organization that caused a tense scene on campus by inviting a PLO leader who advocated for terrorism.

Michelle Obama â€™85 and her classmate Toni Townes-Whitley â€™85, a senior vice president at CGI Federal, were both students at the university when their groupsÂ the Organization of Black Unity (OBU) andÂ the Third World Center (TWC) engaged in a confrontation with Jewish students on campus.
Michelle Obama was a member of both the OBU and TWC during her time at Princeton (1981-85). Townes-WhitleyÂ also belonged to OBU and TWC.
â€œIt was an ugly scene, but few expected perfect harmony when the OBU, in conjunction with the Third World Center (TWC), invited Hassan Rahman, the Palestine Liberation Organizationâ€™s deputy UN observer, to appear on campus,â€ according to a January 25, 1982Â Princeton Alumni WeeklyÂ (Volume 82) article entitled â€œWar of Wordsâ€ in the column â€œOn the Campusâ€ by Ted Lempert â€™83.
Rahman â€œreiterated the PLOâ€™s position that the Palestinians deserve a homeland and that they are entitled to use terrorism to achieve their goal, just as American revolutionaries did against the British.â€
â€œWe have the right to kill them if they are traitors and negotiate with the Israelis,â€ Rahman said of non-PLO supporting Palestinians at the event.
George Schindler, the president for U.S. and Canada of the Canadian-based CGI Group, CGI Federalâ€™s parent company, became an Obama 2012 campaign donor after his company gained the Obamacare website contract.As reported by the Washington Examiner in early October, the Department of Health and Human Services reviewed only CGIâ€™s bid for the Obamacare account. CGI was one of 16 companies qualified under the Bush administration to provide certain tech services to the federal government. A senior vice president for the company testified this week before The House Committee on Energy and Commerce that four companies submitted bids, but did not name those companies or explain why only CGIâ€™s bid was considered.
UPDATE: Excerpts from The Blaze’s (Oct. 30, 2012)Â report on the Third World Conference’s anti-white racism andÂ radical speakers who spoke on the campus at the invite of TWC (Remember Michelle Obama was a ‘Third World Center’Â (TWC) Governance Board Member:
Suddenly this controversial New Yorker cover loses much of it’s satirical edge…
If ever there was an example of the TWC governing boardâ€™s obsession with race, an editorial from October 21, 1981 is it. The members took great offense to an op-ed titled â€œRebuilding Race Relations,â€ calling the article â€œracist, offensive, and inaccurateâ€ for daring to question the groupâ€™s true commitment and to present a thesis on race relations counter to its own.
â€œThe word RE-building implies that race relations once existed and, for some mysterious reasons, fell apart â€¦ ,â€ the board wrote in a scathing letter to the editor. â€œWe, on the other hand, believe that race relations have â€‹neverâ€‹ been and still are not at a satisfactory level. We are not RE-building. We cannot RE-build something that never existed in the first place.â€
â€œDonâ€™t hide behind excuses such as a lack of effort [to integrate with the Princeton campus] on our part,â€ the revealing letter added.â€œThe bottom line is that white students on this campus are racist, but they may not realize it.â€ [Emphasis added]
TWCâ€™s Role in Bringing Radicals to Campus
In cooperation with the Organization of Black Unity, to which Michelle also belonged, the TWC brought a number of terrorists and radicals to campus. We donâ€™t know which of these events she attended, but it was probably more than a few, especially after she became a TWC board member. According to the heavily favorable â€œMichelle: A Biographyâ€,Â sheÂ â€œspent much of her free time at the center, where, among other events, she attended seminars that featured the last surviving Scottsboro boyâ€”a member of nine black Southerners who were falsely accused of raping two white women in the 1930sâ€”and another featuring Rosa Parks.â€ (Mundy, 114).
These are just a few of such events hosted or promoted by the TWC while Michelle was a student:
- In November 1981, Hassan Rahman, the Palestinian Liberation Organizationâ€™s deputy observer to the U.N., came to campus. At this remarkable event, sponsors TWC and OBUÂ segregated the audience along racial lines and had students serving as security guards and searching bags.Â (Jay Appelbaum, â€œStudents decry â€˜securityâ€™ at PLO speech,â€ Daily Princetonian, November 30, 1981).
- In February 1982, the Center sponsored David Johnson, a representative of El Salvadorâ€™s Democratic Revolutionary Front (FDR), the political wing of the terrorist group FMLN. (Stona J. Fitch, â€œSalvadoran opponent speaks. Demands end to U.S. military, economic aid,â€ Daily Princetonian, February 26, 1982). That very day the TWC created a task force intended to â€œdraw attention to the link between U.S. policy in El Salvador and other forms of oppression.â€ (Meryl Kessler, â€œTWC forms task force to oppose U.S. intervention in El Salvador,â€ Daily Princetonian, February 26, 1982). Members also signed a petition that opposed the Reagan administrationâ€™s involvement in El Salvador and, in particular, the military aid to its pro-American, anti-Communist government. (Tom McLaughlin, â€œTWC members petition against Reagan,â€ Daily Princetonian, February 23, 1982)
- Â In April, the Daily Princetonian reported, the Organization of Black Unity sent two representatives to Yale for a weekend symposium on the problems of black Ivy League students. Kwame Toure, a.k.a. Stokely Carmichael, a member of the All-African Peoples Revolutionary Party and a leader of the Black Panthers in the 1960s, gave a presentation emphasizing â€œthe need for the organization of the black masses and the active participation required from black students,â€ said Janette Payne, â€™84, who attended the conference.
- In late April 1982, the TWC and the campusâ€™s Minority Recruitment Office hosted the April Hosting Cultural Show, at which William T. Murphy, a member of the Organization of Black Unityâ€™s board, launched into an attack on white people by quoting Malcolm X, the subject of his senior thesis that year. One student, Paul Russo â€™85, walked out and wrote a letter titled â€œFostering Hateâ€ to the campus paper. Murphy refused to apologize and attacked Russo in a letter of his own, accusing him of being an oppressor and blind to the racism on campus. (William T. Murphy â€™82, â€œThe past and present reality of Malcolm X,â€ Daily Princetonian, May 3, 1982).
- On April 15, the TWC hosted Michael Manley, the former prime minister of Jamaica. Manley, a committed socialist who dubiously denied that he was a Marxist, headed the pro-Castro National Liberation Party and later in 1983 opposed Reaganâ€™s removal of the Marxist thug Maurice Bishop from power in neighboring Grenada.
- In April 27-28, 1983, the TWC hosted a symposium praising the work and life of Clemente Soto Velez, another PuertoÂ RicanÂ nationalist and poet.Â Â In 1936, Soto VÃ©lez was arrested by United States authorities and charged with conspiracy to overthrow the U.S. government. He served a six-year prison term. Soto Velez then returned to Puerto Rico, only to be arrested once more for violating the conditions of his release. In 1942, after another two years in prison, he was released but forbidden to return to Puerto Rico. (â€œClemente Soto Velez, Puerto Rican Poet, 89,â€ New York Times, April 17, 1993).
- Four days later, it played host to the pro-Castro writer and ethnographer Miguel Barnet in Liberation Hall. He criticized the American media for its coverage of El Salvador, where the Marxist FMLN continued to fight the countryâ€™s legitimate government. â€œIf there are guerillas in El Salvador, it is because the people want justice,â€ he told the TWC.
- In November of that year, Malcolm X biographer Manning Marable spoke to TWCâ€™s annual Black Solidarity event. He encouraged the audience to vote for Reaganâ€™s opponent Walter Mondale, who â€œ[i]n the context of black solidarityâ€ was both â€œa lesser evilâ€ and â€œa choice against Reagan, Reaganism, and racism.â€ Marable also sided with the Marxist Nicaraguan dictatorship, encouraging black Americans to express solidarity with â€œthe righteous movements of the Sandinistas in Nicaragua, the New Jewel Movement in Grenada, the guerillas of El Salvador, and especially, our brothers and sisters in South Africa.â€ (D.E. Williams,Â Daily Princetonian, November 6, 1984)
