Showing her true colors yet again (remember the infamous "For the first time in my life, I'm proud of my country" cri du coeur) Michelle Obama made the following remarks during a fundraiser for her husband.
From the White House Dossier:
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?
It's not too hard to read between the lines on this one: we're for equality, they are for the old order. The election has nothing to do with "what they look like" and everything to do with salvaging our economy and national prestige from the brink of total collapse.
Ironically, it's the left, under their Generalissimo and his incompetent Justice Department, that is attacking conservatives, the Catholic Church in particular, on matters relating to freedom of religion, especially when it comes to defending the institution of marriage and the right of children to be raised by a mother and a father.
Comments like these are vulgar, and quite unbecoming for a First Lady of the United States, but they are most characteristic of the antagonistic, race-baiting, angry left, of which Michelle, despite the herculean efforts of her image handlers, is a paragon.
The underlying point here is obvious: Republicans = Evil bigots, Democrats = Virtuous laborers in the field
Another point that is worth making, in light of Obama's comments, is that the left in America is not in the least interested in moving beyond race and division. That's because the left thrives and utterly depends on keeping these issues continually active. To the left, fomenting racism and discord is a legitimate business endeavor. It's Saul Alinsky 101. Their political survival hinges on the degree to which they can convince/brainwash certain segments of society (blacks, the poor, women, etc.) that they are helpless victims solely because of the injustices of 'the system' managed for decades, if not centuries, by white Republican males.
The left's modus operandi is so transparent, so worn-out and desperate that I'm surprised it still gains traction. Why aren't more people, i.e., GOP leaders and commentators, calling out M.O. on this?
