Michelle: GOP Would Curb Freedom of Speech, Religion

In a chilling appraisal of President Obama’s Republican opposition, First Lady Michelle Obama Thursday suggested a Republican victory in the 2012 presidential election would result in curbs on freedom of speech and religion.

Speaking at a fundraiser at a private residence in Tampa, Mrs. Obama noted the power of the president to appoint members of the Supreme Court. She clearly indicated that a Republican would select justices who would attack basic First Amendment rights, saying, “that’s what’s at stake” in the election.

From the White House transcript:

Let’s not forget about what it meant when my husband appointed those two brilliant Supreme Court justices — (applause) — and for the first time in history, our daughters — and our sons — watched three women take their seats on our nation’s highest court.  (Applause.)  But more importantly, let’s not forget the impact those decisions will have on our lives for decades to come — on our privacy and security, on whether we can speak freely, worship openly, and love whomever we choose.  That is what’s at stake here.  (Applause.)

Mrs. Obama’s contention that Republican justices would curtail people’s abilities to “love whomever we choose” appears to suggest Republicans would go beyond opposition to gay marriage and move to limit gay relationships. President Obama himself claims he opposes gay marriage, so her suggestion that Republican-selected justices would jeopardize the ability to “love whomever we choose” cannot possibly refer to gay marriage.

As she has previously, Michelle also posits racism on the part of Republicans, indicating their policies would lead to discrimination against children based on “what they look like.”

Will we be a country where opportunity is limited to just the few at the top?  Who are we?  Or will we give every child a chance to succeed no matter where they’re from, or what they look like or how their money parents are — have.  Who are we?

  1. The only thing the GOP is going to curb is Mooch-chelle’s gorging herself at the public trough. January 20, 2013 can’t come soon enough.

  2. First of Islam is a cult and second they can ask/SPEECIFY their want of Sharia all day long as far as I’m concered but they aint gonna get it cause OBummer is a 1 termer and EVERYBODY knows it!

  3. Now come on, give her a break. She’s worried sick about what she and her mother are going to do when Barry’s unemployed. Who will pay for the vacations? What about her staff? Who’s going to treat her like the Queen she fantasizes to be? Oh, yea, she’s got trouble. Probably more than what’s obvious.

  4. Michelle is right! Considering the Rev. Wright’s proclamation, “Not God Bless Amerikkka but God Damn Amerikkka. Well, God has not damned Amerikkka enough for its past transgressions. You go Michelle! You go Obama! Make this country into something it SHOULD be! Obama/Biden 2012!

  5. Obama was free under two different Bush Administrations to freely worship. Ironically, the ‘ worship ‘ included the free speech protection of “God Damn America” every Sunday. We won’t lose any free spech or worship without Obama in the White House, we’ll just lose…two losers.

  6. Really? The Libs are the ones taking prayer out of schools, removing religious symbols from public display, and the Republicans will take away freedom of religion?

    Oh …. and Michelle …. Horizontal stripes may not be right for you.

  7. considering this is the administration that ordered the DOJ to ignore cases where the perpetrators of crimes were black, isn’t it rich to accuse the republicans of using race in its decisions?
    this is the most racist administration I’ve ever seen. far from being the first post-racial president, Obama and his team have used race-baiting at every term.
    we can’t get rid of these bums soon enough

  8. Michelle is a colossal liar, unless she really believes this, then she is mentally ill. She probably is both. The sooner these losers get out of the White House, the better off the country will be.

  9. Does Mrs. Obama even know about history, as she claims. Seems it was the Democrats that were for SLAVORY and it was REPUBLICANS that fought for there SLAVES FREEDOM, and Wasn’t DEOCRAT SENATOR BYRD one of the GRAND UMPA of the KKK. But thats Typical of Democrats they do like to SPIN the facts and TRUTH. Look at the President, in his LIES, REPUBLICANS want everyone to have DIRTY WATER, UNCLEAN AIR, and NO HEALTHCARE for the American people, Does this group of people really think it works. MAYBE IN OWS and those CLOWNS time to get real OBAMAS, ENJOY the END is comeing to and END 2012 your done the both of you LIERS

  10. If you put the GOP under the big tent you can get at least one of them to say something. Just as Republicans always put the evil liberals under one tent. Examples abound that both sides are polarized. I put the partisans under one tent of bought off crooks. That’s why I am shopping around for a third party.

  11. Are you kidding me????? Are you joking??? The Left is the biggest offender of taking away free speech (Fairness Doctrine)…and most of the Left are the ones that have fits about ANYTHING religious.

    She and her empty suit of a husband just need to go away….

  12. And… This is the woman who got on TV and told Barbara WaWa that she was not proud of her country. Well, she sure is having one hell of a time with her traveling around the world at taxpayer expenses. She wants to continue with her private jet and staff. The media is scared to death to confront them. In my lifetime, this current administration has done more to eliminate individual freedoms than all the rest combined. They have done more damage to the black community than anyone and have polarized this country beyond repair. So…If you voted for our current president in 2008 to prove you weren’t a racist, please vote for someone else in 2012 to prove you’re not an idiot.

  13. Michelle Obama is either ignorant to the truth or she lies. The only people who buy into the rhetoric that Republicans will take away all your rights and freedoms are the Drones of the Democrat Party and the Far Left ideologues.

  14. Q: Define marriage.
    0bama: I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman…
    Q: Would you support a constitutional amendment with that definition?
    0bama: No I would not. Because historically we have defined marriage in our constitution, it’s been a matter of state law.

    0bama checked NO in response a Human Rights Campaign questionaire asking if the candidate “Supports allowing civil marriage rights for same-sex couples.
    When in doubt pull the gay card and then the race card. They will both expire with your husband in 2012.

  15. We have seen more activity of web sites and Youtube removals under DHS and the Obama regime than any other President, Clinton coming second, and Bush third… It is reported that the Homeland alone under Janet Napolitano the collection of Google and search information into a people data bank to identify political threats, and an increase of 70% over last year of DHS having Youtube remove postings… The civil system of free speech, truth, lies, libel, or get sued is not good enough for the Obama regime. We are seeing the media and public voice being crushed under the guise of curbing terrorism. “Be safe, Be fearful, Be silent!”

  16. I love the way she and her hubbies administration have curbed freedoms here, but they actually think they are righteous in all they do. WOW, just incredible.

  17. Give me a break, she whines as much as her husband.

    Lets not forget based upon her actions of how Michelle will curb our freedom to eat, act and breath if she gets her way. We all need to examine the content of her Character as well as BO’s in this next election. For someone who said America didn’t treat her very well she sure knows how to spend our tax dollars. Hopefully her crystal palace will shatter in November 2012.

  18. Right, and this coming from a person who wants to dictate our basic right of what to eat. It’s the repubs who want us to return to the ideals our founders created in the constitution. That’s what scares these Marxist ideologues the most. She needs to shut up already…

  19. I apoplogize for my comments if it offends anyone because it is what it is. I was lucky enough to become a Naturalized United States Citizen in 1968. I am proud to have this priviledge.
    Our founding fathers in studying their beliefs for their children their children was never to create a America that has lost its morality.
    And as everyone can see we have.
    Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Expression should not be whatever a or a company thinks they can do in order to profit from the our founding fathers beliefs.
    I cannot imagine Benjamin, Franklin, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson or the fathers of our country Gen George Washington and their children today logging on the Internet to see a women sucking on a mans cock or watching a man thrust his pennis into a womens vagina with all to watch. A man ejaculating on the face of a women or two women or two men having anal sex. Raising our children must have the highest standards of Morality and as you can see today look what is happening to our most precious, they are watching Porno sites with Dads credit card, they are going to movies that demean women for who they should truly be. Women naked on a stage and having money thrown at them makes alot of sense. Yes, I believe in Free Speech, Freedom of Expression but those Supreme Court Justices have now ruined a great nation that was started by a few men with a dream and a vision and they would truly be ashamed I believe in what we have become………..

  20. I agree with her statement. If we elect a mormon to president – freedom of religion goes out the door. Do the research on Romney and the LDS church.

    1. Romney is no conservative but your statement is not factual and his religion is immaterial. LDS is very different from my Southern Baptist upbringing, but we have more in common than Islam. LDS doesn’t want to kill me because I refuse to practice their religion…

  21. I tend to thing the exact opposite, another 4yr of her husband would be a catastrophe for speech and religious liberty, already liberal judges are doing things that curtail christian activities and favor muslim activities. She is a ferrakhan girl. Maybe curtailing a wee bit of the hate rhetoric wouldn’t be so bad?

    She does need to shut up, Paula Dean had it right, she is a friggin’ hypocrite.

  22. Restrict freedom of religon? Unlike your ilk that believes in freedom from religion, unless of course you’re Muslim, then it’s cool.

  23. I know it’s planned to lie like this, but these kind of comments remind me how she has no class, hates whites (read her own words in her doctoral thesis) and is just find spending whatever it takes for her to have fun. Her trips, like her husbands golf, have set records.

    Message to Michelle, it’s your husband and his cronies who are violating our constitution, limiting our freedoms and ruining as much as they can.

    Go away.

    1. Just a correction: It was her senior thesis. She doesn’t have a doctorate.
      I remember that, during the campaign, Barry O was listed as a “professor of Constitutional law” when he only had a BA and a law degree. He was a lecturer, no more.
      Neither of them is really very bright, just manipulative.

  24. I think you and Owebama are doing a good job of destroying America and talk about being racist are you and Owebama going to church this weekend with rev wright?

  25. Let me get this straight –
    This is the same Michelle Obama who sat in Jeremiah Writes’ “Church” for twenty years, actively engaging herself in his hate filled sermons, to the point of having him baptize both of her children, and she’s now calling the GOP racists?!?!?!

    Talk about a true follower of the “Große Lüge” – Hitler’s “Big Lie”…

  26. This is absolutely laughable given the tactics used by the Obama Administration to stifle dissenting opinion. Obama actually called out Rush Limbaugh, a private citizen, and insisted that people stop listening to him. He’s called out FOX News on many occasions, merely because it presents a side of things that he finds annoying. And let’s not forget it is the Democrats who have favored the fairness doctrine principles, which would essentially curtail free speech on the airwaves. Freedom of speech? The only time left wingers are in favor of freedom of speech is when the speaker echoes liberal beliefs. Otherwise, they endlessly seek to shut down the opposition voices.

  27. Historically and to date there has NEVER been a Republican who tried to squelch freedom of speech or religion, nor will there be. This is rhetoric spoken to induce those of the idiot masses and deep pockets to (1) feel good about themselves without any visible proof of said accusations, and (2) give $$ until it hurts. Anyone believing what Michele stated at the Money $Luncheon$ is in a parallel universe. However, we have only to cruise the OWS groups to see that there actually ARE people who live in parallel universes.

  28. I know we all can’t help making jokes about her and her ilk, (some of the funniest stuff I’ve ever read are the readers comments) BUT….what they are doing is really serious stuff. Read “Communist Goals for America Takeover”, submitted to 1/10/1963 Congressional records. I keep that and the Communist Manifesto in my sidebar to remind me of the consequences of not being engaged in what goes on in my Country. This IS NOT the Democratic party of Grandma & Grandpa!

  29. Who passes those damn “hate speech” laws which force every one of us to look over his shoulder before daring to voice an opinion?
    Who has the union goon squads to break up opposition meetings and intimidate critics?
    Who’s doing nothing when Muslims violate the rights of Christians and Jews but scream bloody murder if someone dares to criticize a Muslim?
    Who’s nibbling away at our freedoms, bit by bit, campus by campus, community by community?
    Hint: It ain’t the Republicans, baby. Why don’t you grab some junk food and add to your cholesterol-laden ass and leave us alone?

  30. This seems to be the last resort of the incompetent, start calling your opponent names or telling everyone what they will do horrible things. They always forget that little thing the rest of us call the Constitution.
