Think About It This Way with Charles Butler 08202011


This week’s show was outstanding!

I discussed the visceral and intellectual reaction I had with other people viewing the movie The Heat.  The movie was outstanding in every regard especially the realism of the period.  It was a wonderful movie and provided some insight in the lives of these women.  An aspect that wasn’t discussed in the movie was the rape and nonconsensual sex that domestic work exposed these women too.  The ony book that deals with this from a historical perspective is “At the Dark End of the Street: Black Women, Rape, and Resistance–A New History of the Civil Rights Movement from Rosa Parks to the Rise of Black Power” by Danielle McGuire.

Mr. Johnny Taylor, President of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, discussed the new demographic of white students attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities.  It was informative and enlightening and far too short.

Michael Steele, former Chairman of the Republican National Committee, and MSNBC contributor was on the show providing insight and analysis about the Iowa races, and President Obama’s blame game.

Listen In!

My show was back to the high energy level of the past.  We had some of the best guests dealing with topics and issues that are of interest to Americans.

Mr. Curtis Dubay, Senior Policy Analyst, from the Heritage Foundation, he discussed debt ceiling and the consequences for the average American.  He commented that President Obama used emotional scare tactics to try to force the Congress to capitulate to tax increases and the business class and funding of Obamacare.

Oklahoma State Rep. Terrell and Oklahoma Senator Shorty, discussed the House Bill that virtually stopped financial support and the employment of illegal people in their state.  The illegals are heading to the sanctuary state of Illinois.

I discussed the Tea Baby comment in the context of the government jargon for a project that is all mucked up and you can not get unstuck from it.  “Your Boy!” comment by Pat Buchanan and the reaction by Rev. Al Sharpton.

Mr. Steve Beamon was on point about the President’s policies and scare tactics of no paychecks for the military, social security, and other payments to people and agencies.

Mr. Eric Voogd, called from the road to report on his attendance at the straw poll in Iowa for the Chicago Tea Party Patriots.  He need a great job of informing us about the atmosphere.

Think About It This Way with Charles Butler & Co-Host Tom Sodeika

We discussed some serious topics and consequences of a slow economy.  Tom provide the real world insight about small and mid-size businesses situation and skepticism about the near future.  The new policies from Obamacare, the Frank-Dobb Act, and an uncertain tax environment makes for low confidence in the government and the economy.

Chris Ferrell of Judicial Watch discussed voter identification laws and fraud.  He noted that in various surveys over 80% of the people cross all demographics support voter identification laws.

Open Letter to Ben Jealous, President of NAACP

August 7, 2011

To:    Mr. Benjamin Jealous, President NAACP

Mr. Hilary Shelton, NAACP National Spokesman

Ms. Chris Fleming, V.P. Communication


Dear Mr. Jealous:

I completed an interview this morning on the Craig Henne Show, where I tried to explain the need for Voter ID at the polls.  During my preparation I read your speech to the NAACP conference in Los Angeles last week and it became apparent to me what is wrong in Black America today.  I will sum it up succinctly lack of accountability, personal responsibility, moral character, and a sense of right and wrong.  I will only focus in the Voter ID laws in your speech.

Mr. Jealous, given your position as the President of the old civil rights organization in America, you need to check your facts on voter identification, registration, and ex-felon disenfranchisement.  During your speech to the national conference you made some very serious claims of racism and Jim Crowism that cannot be substantiated by the facts of the situation. It seems to me that it is common sense and logical to require Voter ID at the polls.  I have carried my identification to the polls every election for the last 40 years. Voter ID is NO — Jim Crow short version of a 2500-word document.

Your alarmist and inflammatory rhetoric is shameful and without merit on Voter ID. Rev. Jesse Jackson, Rev. Al Sharpton, the Congressional Black Caucus, and you are totally out of synch with Black Americans on Voter ID, School Vouchers, and amnesty for Illegal Immigrants. Most Americans regardless of ethnicity want an opportunity for all Americans to prosper in our great country.  Dr. King would side with me in this debate about Voter ID and fraud because it is fair, legal and without question democratic.  If some people don’t want to vote, it is their right too!  It is harder not to possess a state issued government identification, than to possess one, FACT!

You failed to mention that last April, Lessadolla Sowers, a member of the NAACP Executive Committee in Tunica County MS was sentenced to 5 years in federal prison on 10 counts of fraudulently casting absentee ballots to run concurrently. She was previously convicted and jailed for passing bad checks.  Nationally, the NAACP involvement in voter fraud cases is growing, and while not to the levels of ACORN, any impropriety it is a blemish on the impeccable reputation of such a great civil right institution.

I challenge you to appear on my show Think About It This Way with Charles Butler on AM560 WIND this Saturday, Aug 6th at 6pm and discuss Voter ID. It promises to be spirited, educational, and enlightening for your members and our audience.

The Ex-Felon Disenfranchisement mystic shows the Black leadership/elites continued romanticism and glorification of the criminal element in our community.  The Black intelligentsia treats these violent criminals as oppressed victims of Democracy, when their victims over 99% of time are a law-abiding black person. The focus on ex-felons is a backwards and non-productive effort by black politicians, social workers, and the clergy.  Instead of focusing on the better people in the race, you reach out for the corrupted and dysfunctional of the race.  Totally unbelievable.

In summary, your speech at the conference shows the digression from the forward thinking, democracy oriented leadership that has been the tradition of the NAACP, integration into American society as equal citizens.  Now the NAACP has sided with illegal immigration forces in a misguided allegiance much like the Black-Jewish allegiance of the post-Niagara Movement, that created the NAACP and a divergence from economic development and empowerment and self-help to vulnerable dependence on integration into the American society, workforce and business; that did not come until 1969 under President Nixon, Sec. George Shultz, and Dr. Arthur Fletcher launched the Philadelphia Plan, the forerunner of Affirmative Action.

I can be reached at 312-545-9565, and I will hold the hour open until Thursday 4:00pm CDT.

Best regards, Charles Butler
