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.

Government Response

We should all remember that America is a nation of both laws and government agencies who are the sole holders of the mandates to affect the enforcement of those laws and to provide the services and protections deriving from them. It’s really not our place to do other than report what we observe. 😉

While hiking down along the border this morning, I saw a Muslim extremist fall into the Rio Grande River. He was struggling to stay afloat because of all the guns and bombs he was carrying.

Along with him was a Mexican who was also struggling to stay afloat because of the large backpack of drugs that was strapped to his back. If they didn’t get help, they’d surely drown.

Being a responsible Texan and abiding by the law to help those in distress, I informed the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office and Homeland Security.

It is now 4 PM, both have drowned, and neither authority has responded. I’m starting to think I wasted two stamps.

— Sam Elliot

Please also remember that you cannot be compelled to render any form of aid or assistance to anyone. Nor can you be compelled to report a crime that you witness.

Feel free to let the various and sundry agencies of the government respond to such things.

Crucify Them! Burn Them!

Liberals and Progressives just love to preach about the absolute need for tolerance. Yet, America’s ranting and raving domestic enemies neither show any understanding of that term or exhibit it towards those who fail to live up to every single argument of their doctrine and dogma.

Liberal "Tolerance" equals persecution of the unorthodox
Crucify Them!

Tolerance is the ability or willingness to allow the existence, occurrence, or practice of something, in particular the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with, with forbearance. What the Liberals and Progressives seek is endorsement, aid, and normalization of certain things that they have decided are protected traits. They do not seek any form of forbearance; they seek overt and explicit approval of that which normative, American society does not necessarily agree with.

Burn them at the stake for tolerance!
Burn The Heathens, Heretics, and Apostates!

And, as is to be expected, the “tolerance” of our domestic enemies does not extend to “heathens,” “heretics,” or, most especially, “apostates.” The latter bears the worst persecution but Liberals and Progressives demand that all of them profess their auto-da-fĂ© before being nailed to the cross or burned at the stake…All in the name of fostering tolerance of course.

To borrow the catchphrase of their token, let me be clear – there is little if any difference between the Liberals and Progressives within America’s borders and ISIS, the Taliban, or Boko Haram. They may differ in exact beliefs and use somewhat different specific methods but they share a common level and extent of extremism and orthodoxy. When it comes down to it, there’s not a lot of difference between a knife, an AK-47, or an IED and paper terrorism and lawfare. In all cases it is the attempt to destroy those who beliefs are not deemed allowable.
