Obama Knows Best?

Obama Knows Best - Moochelle's views on the Presidency and the People
Obama Knows Best?

In the same hour-long “exit interview” with Oprah Winfrey in which Michelle Obama lamented that Donald Trump’s election victory stole all hope from those demographics Michelle and Barack support, enable, and pander to she also had some “interesting” things to say about the role of the POTUS, specifically her husband’s role in that office.

He and I and so many believe that – what else do you have if you don’t have hope? What do you give your kids if you can’t give them hope?

I feel Barack has been that for the nation in ways that people will come to appreciate. Having a grown-up in the White House who can say to you in times of crisis and turmoil, ‘Hey, it’s going to be okay. Let’s remember the good things that we have.’

— Michelle Obama

Michelle has now voiced and interesting and quite telling opinion. Then, stress and/or tragedy tend to lower one’s inhibitions and cause the truth of what one is and one believes to come out into the light. And of course, the truth of Michelle and her beliefs are rather repugnant to the American people and much more than a little hypocritical coming from her.

The State Is Mother, The State Is Father

You can’t get past the fact that if Obama is “grown-up in the White House,” then we, the People are children – often unruly, needy children – in Michelle’s mind. That’s not just insulting; it’s downright dangerous because that the mindset that empowers the nanny state and leads to the most pernicious and persistent forms of despotism.

In the outgoing FLOTUS’ defense, if one looks at many of her husband’s constituency, the idea that they are unruly, needy children who desperately require and demand parental guidance and attention is not too far-fetched. If, as is likely given her history, Michelle bases her opinion of Americans on them, it’s understandable that she would believe they need the State as mother and father. They obviously need something by way of aid and comfort.

The problem, however, is it is the same sort of failed parenting that produced these snowflakes that is exemplified by the majority of Liberal social policies. As such, this is not a philosophy that can be allowed to take hold in our national discourse.

So Very Offensively Insensitive

Still, Michelle’s rare, honest views are not without their humor or, at the very least, delicious irony. Looking at them from the borrowed viewpoint of many of her husband’s constituency, they’re very offensively insensitive to the experiences and narratives of both Blacks and Womyn.

Given that in any given year in recent memory 66% – 75% of Black offspring do not a have a father in residence, bastardy having become their cultural since the “success” of the 1950s – 1960s “Civil Rights” movement, the FLOTUS’ casual normification and valorization of a father figure is at best racially tone deaf and at worst an endorsement of White Privilege and a tacit remonstration of Black Culture.

Similarly, Michelle’s comment could quite easily be considered as horrifically offensive and insensitive to the plight of the current wave of Feminist womyn inside America’s borders. With the FLOTUS essentially casting Obama in Robert Young’s role, it would seem that she has normalized the “Patriarchy” with Obama being the wise and caring father figure and the head of the should that America represents to Michelle.

Pretty much, if she wasn’t the First Black First Lady she would have been excoriated for this lament with its insensitivity to the special needs of much of her husband’s constituency. But then, her husband enjoyed similar leniency throughout his tenure because he was a Black.

Yep! Right now, that is the state of the “movers and shakers” on the left. They’re wandering in a desert wasteland of the broken hopes and dreams, wondering why they couldn’t convince the heartland of America to vote for Hillary or, at least, not vote for Donald Trump.
