Critics of the Democratic Party are increasingly claiming that its members seem to be content to tear the country apart and watching it burn to the ground.
At first blush, that characterization might seem plenty harsh to many, even most, Americans. But any true analysis of the statement along with an examination of the words and actions of Democrats themselves will lead the fair-minded to conclude the claim is spot-on.
The latest Democrat to prove the point is Michelle Obama.
Among the most pampered black women in the country, Obama was raised in a two-parent upper-middle-class environment in Chicago before ‘managing’ to get an Ivy League education ahead of becoming the first black first lady and now multi-millionaire Netflix content creator and author.
Yes, Michelle Obama has never wanted for much nor experienced anything like the terror and danger of other black men and women who live is portions of large cities she never experienced much while growing up.
But she wants everyone to believe she has by perpetuating the lie that ‘racist’ America targets black people the way they were targeted and persecuted 160 years ago.
In an interview with “CBS This Morning” on Friday, she told racialist co-anchor Gayle King she feared for daughters Malia, 22, and Sasha, 19, “every time they get in a car by themselves” — in the context of discussing the recently concluded trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who was convicted of murdering George Floyd last month.
Following the jury’s decision, the Obamas — never a couple to stay out of a race issue involving the death of a black man that can be politicized (unlike, say, the death of a 22-month-old black toddler last week allegedly at the hand of a young black male) — issued a statement saying “true justice is about much more than a single verdict in a single trial.”
Well, no it isn’t, but you can’t gaslight the country with reason and commonality.
Asked about the statement, Obama told King: “The goal is to let leaders lead. But in certain times, people, you know, look to us often. ‘Well, what do you think? How do you feel?’ We know that while we’re all breathing a sigh of relief over the verdict, there’s still work to be done. And so we, we can’t sort of say, ‘Great. That happened. Let’s move on.’ I know that people in the black community don’t feel that way because many of us still live in fear as we go to the grocery store, or walking our dogs, or allowing our children to get a license.”
“Aren’t your girls driving?” King asked.
“They’re driving, but every time they get in a car by themselves, I worry about what assumption is being made by somebody who doesn’t know everything about them,” Obama said. “The fact that they are good students and polite girls, but maybe they’re playing their music a little loud, maybe somebody sees the back in their head and makes an assumption. I, like so many parents of black kids, have to — the innocent act of getting a license puts fear in our hearts.”
“So, I think we have to talk about it more, and we have to ask our fellow citizens to listen a bit more and to believe us and to know we don’t wanna be out there marching. I mean, all those Black Lives Matters kids, they’d rather not have to worry about this,” Obama went on.
“They’re taking to the streets because they have to. They’re trying to have people understand that we’re real folks, and the fear that many have of so many of us is irrational, and it’s based on a history that is just — it’s sad, and it’s dark, and it’s time for us to move beyond that.”
What is galling about this professional gaslighter is her refusal, that of her husband, and practically every other leader in the black community, to talk about why young black male youths are gunning down each other and killing black babies, and then address the underlying cultural problems causing that behavior.
But as usual, it’s easier for her to lie about ‘systemic white racism’ and ‘white oppression.’
