Michelle Obama Criticizes GOP in Congress for Being Too White

So what’s her point, exactly? We freely elect officials, there’s not a quota system for it in the Constitution that I’m aware of.

Mrs. Obama spoke at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women:

At the State of the Union address . . .  when you are in the room what you can see is this real dichotomy. It’s a feeling of color almost. On one side of the room is literally gray and white. Literally, that is the color palette on one side of the room. On the other side of the room, there are yellows and blues and whites and greens. Physically, there’s a difference in color, in the tone, because on one side all men, all white, on the other side some woman, some people of color . . . I look at that, and I go, no wonder. No wonder we struggle, no wonder people don’t trust politics. We’re not even noticing what these rooms look like.

If her point is that there aren’t enough black Republicans, well then we’re in complete agreement. Republican policies that expand economic growth and decrease dependency on the government are far better for African Americans than Democratic policies that have kept blacks mired in terrible economic conditions and helped foster the complete breakdown of the black family. Republicans do not do enough to convince minorities to support their ideology.

But of course, her point is that Republicans are a bunch of racists who don’t support “progressive” policies and they need to get over their hatred of blacks and start agreeing with her on the issues. And that’s yet another Obama – Barack and Michelle – racial polarization moment. The couple that could have done more than anyone to bring this country together have instead driven us apart.

A black president was elected. Though I opposed him and his policies, a small part of me was thrilled because I thought this might go a long way toward healing ancient divisions. But instead, the Obamas threw in with the racial grievance crowd, and a historic opportunity that would have diminished antagonisms and benefited African Americans the most was lost.

And she’s still at it, and they both will be for the next few decades, at great cost to the country, given their profiles.

Sure, there are some Republican racists. But ultimately Republicans don’t reach out enough to blacks because they just think, given how inevitable it seems African Americans will vote for Democrats, that it’s a waste of time and resources. Well, it’s not. Gaining just a few black votes will tip elections.

Republicans should get off their asses on this and point out that it was Democrats who were the backers of slavery, not Republicans, and that Democrats continue to enslave blacks today via the welfare state.

Once African Americans are convinced that conservatism is their salvation, the Republican side of the aisle will have a more diverse “pallette.” And Michelle, I’m sure, will be thrilled.

Michelle Obama Condemns Women Who Voted for Trump

Former First Lady Michelle Obama said women who voted failed to vote for Hillary Clinton must hate themselves.

From her remarks this week at a marketing conference in Boston, for which I assume she was very handsomely paid:

Any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice. It doesn’t say as much about Hillary, and everybody’s trying to worry about what it means for Hillary and no, no, no, what does this mean for us, as women?” she asked. “That we look at those two candidates, as women, and many of us said, ‘He’s better for me. His voice is more true to me.’ To me that just says, you don’t like your voice. You like the thing you’re told to like.

It’s of a piece with the typical identity politics of the Left and the Obamas in particular, which holds that you must vote for the group you happen to belong to. It’s dumb, it’s sexist, and it’s racist, because it suggests people don’t have thoughts beyond their racial identity or their sex. It’s exactly what Martin Luther King preached against. But it’s good politics for Democrats and it’s what people like Mrs. Obama actually think.

Hillary to Huma: Get Me a Separate Plane from Michelle

Okay, sure, we don’t know the context of this. But even at the very least, it looks like Hillary felt she had better things to do than to talk to Michelle Obama for a couple of hours.

This is from a new tranche of emails obtained by Judicial Watch, among them emails from the secretary of state containing classified information that were sent to the Clinton Foundation. But that’s okay, it’s a trusty organization.

The email below was related to a trip to Betty Ford’s funeral. Note that it starts from the bottom. No, I’m not treating you like an idiot, I started from the top first time I read it!

Take a look at the video below, if you can stand to watch it. Michelle Obama, dripping with sanctimony, appeared Thursday in North Carolina with Hillary Clinton.

They Put Obama in Office, and They are Accused of Worse Than Trump

I don’t dismiss all the charges against Donald Trump. While some of them are probably false, some are probably true. It’s just too many women, and they are alleging things he bragged about. And I think it’s disgusting. But the hypocrisy of the Democrats in an uproar at the charges — especially the outrage expressed… Continue Reading

GOP Super PAC Uses Michelle’s Words Against Hillary

A pro-Trump Super PAC is running a new ad using 2008 footage of Michelle Obama questioning the ethics of the Clintons. The ad, titled “Can’t Run Her House,” is by the Make America Number 1 Super PAC. So many ironies here. One, of course, is that Michelle Obama is out giving speeches about Donald Trump’s… Continue Reading

Van Susteren: Michelle’s #BringBackOurGirls Became #ahhfuggedaboutit

I’m “mad as hell at Michelle Obama,” said Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren, and at herself, she says, for not keeping up the pressure after more 270 Nigerian schoolgirls were kidnapped two years ago by Boko Haram. “The first lady promised to help but walked away. Was this just a big stunt?” Van Susteren notes… Continue Reading
