Ivy League Professor Who Called Ben Carson A ‘Coon’ Now Holds Classes In TOP SECRET Location Photo of Eric Owens ERIC OWENS


The University of Pennsylvania professor who called Ben Carson a “coon” in the fall is teaching her only class this semester at top-secret, ever-changing locations at the Ivy League school, partly out of fear of nefarious assassins.

The tenured associate professor of religious studies is Anthea Butler. The Daily Pennsylvanian, Penn’s campus newspaper, discovered Butler’s stealthy, clandestine status when a reporter tried to track her down.

“Because of the threats against her, I cannot tell you where she teaches and any further inquiries should be sent to Penn Police (she is protected by them),” religious studies department chairman Justin McDaniel informed the newspaper in an email.

McDaniel said Butler has received “death threats and incessant harassment by many people over the last several years.”

The department chairman also explained that “the location of her undergraduate courses are [sic] not publicized to anyone but the students registered for the course.” Thus, he wrote, he cannot reveal “the building or time.”

Fresh threats possibly came after the professor suggested naming Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson “coon of the year” on her Twitter account. (RELATED: Ivy League Prof Calls Ben Carson A ‘Coon’)

Butler, whose Twitter feed has featured more than 69,000 tweets, was responding to another Twitter user who tweeted a link to a Sports Illustrated article describing Carson’s declaration that NASCAR fans should be allowed to show the Confederate flag.

“If only there was a ‘coon of the year’ award…” Butler tweeted in response. The tweet was spotted by the website Campus Reform, which grabbed a quick screenshot. When the website contacted Butler for comment, she quickly deleted it.
The Ivy League prof, who has been a frequent guest at media outlets including MSNBC and CNN, then coincidentally went on a sabbatical.

A religious studies department staff member, Stephanie Evette Palmer, initially told The Daily Pennsylvanian that Butler’s sabbatical would last the entire 2015-2016 academic year, and that the graduate seminar on evangelism had been a printing mistake. Palmer observed that she had not once seen Butler in her own academic department all year.

In any case, Butler is, in fact, teaching a graduate-level seminar at Penn this semester called “Readings in American Evangelicalism.” It is scheduled to meet on Mondays from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Butler responded to The Daily Pennsylvanian’s investigation with a letter to the editor accusing the student newspaper of printing “poorly sourced, clickbait.” In the letter, which is 192 words longer than the actual article about her, Butler also declared that she receives no special protection and protested that she didn’t actually call Ben Carson a “coon” in her deleted tweet.

“For the record, I did not call Ben Carson what people have said I did,” she wrote. “I made a reference to a friend’s tweet, and that was distorted by right wing press sites.”

Butler also referenced Martin Luther King, Malcolm X and Black Lives Matter in her letter to the editor.

Reportage of Butler’s special, covert campus status is just the professor’s late brush with fame.

In 2014, Butler used the MTV Video Music Awards as an occasion to express frustration that Ariana Grande won the 2014 award for best pop video for a song called “Problem.”

“First they shootin us in the streets, and then they taking all the video awards for sorry songs y’all,” the Penn professor wrote.

She then deleted the tweet and changed her Twitter settings to private so that only confirmed followers have access to her ungrammatical musings.

In July 2013, Butler blocked her page to keep out “trolls” after an epic rant about God’s failure to live up to her high expectations when a Florida jury found George Zimmerman not guilty.

“God ain’t good all of the time,” Butler had declared. “In fact, sometimes, God is not for us. As a black woman in an [sic] nation that has taken too many pains to remind me that I am not a white man, and am not capable of taking care of my reproductive rights, or my voting rights, I know that this American god ain’t my god.” (RELATED: Irate Ivy League Professor Calls God ‘A White Racist God’ After Zimmerman Verdict)

“Whatever makes them protected, safe, and secure, is worth it at the expense of the black and brown people they fear,” the religious studies professor also raged. “Their god is the god that wants to erase race.”

In a later Twitter taunt, Butler wrote: “Trolls? You Mad? Block Blockety BLOCKED.”

It’s not clear if Butler realizes that there is no way to prevent the general public — including anyone who is “blocked” — from viewing the contents of a public Twitter account.

In the wake of the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya, Butler also said that filmmaker Sam Bacile should be held responsible and jailed.

Ben Carson Endorses Donald Trump, Praises His ‘Guts & Energy’

Ben Carson, the former pediatric neurosurgeon who dropped out of the Republican presidential race last week, endorsed Donald Trump on Friday, praising his “guts” and “energy.”

“There are two different Donald Trumps,” Carson said at the billionaire’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida. “There’s the one you see on the stage and there’s the one who is very cerebral, sits there and considers things very carefully. You can have a very good conversation with him. That’s the Donald Trump that you’re going to start seeing more and more of.”

Trump agreed with that assessment.

“I probably do agree. There’s the public version … it seems to have worked over my lifetime,” he said. “I think it’s different than the personal one.”

Moments later, though, Trump seemed to reject that idea.

“I don’t think there are two Donald Trumps. I think there’s one Donald Trump,” he said.

Ben Carson To Endorse Guy Who Called Him ‘Pathological’


Famed neurosurgeon Ben Carson will endorse real estate mogul Donald Trump’s presidential bid on Friday, according to The Washington Post.

If you find this news at all surprising, you’re not alone.

The GOP front-runner once attacked Carson, one of the most well-liked figures among the Republican electorate, for having a “pathological temper” and furthercompared him to a child molester.

“That’s a big problem because you don’t cure that … as an example: child molesting,” Trump said about an anecdote in Carson’s book Gifted Hands. “You don’t cure these people. You don’t cure a child molester. There’s no cure for it. Pathological, there’s no cure for that.”

Ben Carson to Endorse Donald Trump


Ben Carson, the retired pediatric neurosurgeon who ended his presidential bid last week, plans to endorse Donald J. Trump Friday morning, three people familiar with the discussions said.

Mr. Carson will make his endorsement, first reported by the Washington Post, at a morning press conference with Mr. Trump at Mar-A-Lago, his private club in Palm Beach, Fla.

In an interview with John Gibson on Fox News Radio, Mr. Carson said that there was more to Mr. Trump than meets the eye.

“There’s the Donald Trump that you see on television and who gets out in front of big audiences, and there’s the Donald Trump behind the scenes,” Mr. Carson said. “They’re not the same person.”

“One’s very much an entertainer, and one is actually a thinking individual,” he said.

Mr. Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, said that Mr. Trump would be “a lot better than Hillary” and that he would not be as bad as many conservatives fear. He said that Mr. Trump was “more reasonable” than people realized and that he could be an asset to Republican efforts to maintain control of Congress because he is harnessing the anger of the American public.

Mr. Trump has compared Mr. Carson to a child molester, called him “super low energy” and questioned his religion when they were competing against each other for the Republican presidential nomination.


Ben Carson campaign releases strange statement denying he’s pulling the plug, saying he’s going home to ‘get a fresh set of clothes


Ben Carson’s campaign on Monday night released a statement denying that the retired neurosurgeon was suspending his bid for the Republican presidential nomination.

Carson’s communication director, Larry Ross, said in the statement that Carson was leaving Iowa, where the nation’s first caucuses were held on Monday night, early to go home and “get a fresh set of clothes.”


Iowa looms as last chance for some candidates


Iowa could also deal Ben Carson, Rand Paul and Carly Fiorina a crucial blow if they fail to outperform their spot at the polls. But most experts believe they’ll hang on with enough financial resources to pray for a backup plan.

On the Democratic side, party members have long predicted that Martin O’Malley’s longshot bid is nearing its end. But as he faces such low expectations, Democratic strategists believe he’s a sure bet to stick around at least until New Hampshire and hope for a miracle

“For those that have the resources to hang in there, then there’s no reason to get out of the race, but cross your fingers that something happens on the campaign trail and puts the wind at your back,” said Ron Bonjean, a GOP strategist and former congressional leadership aide.

For Huckabee and Santorum, it’s a matter of money and poor polling.
