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.

Bernie’s True Platform

While it certainly matters whether or not Bernie Sanders wins the Democrats’ nomination for POTUS, what matters more is his platform upon which he’s running for office.

Bernie’s True Platform
(Click to Enlarge)

And, when you boil it all down, this is Bernie’s true platform. The State is Mother; the State is Father; the State is God.

How could it be otherwise? Bernie’s an openly admitted Socialist and Socialism as it is enacted as opposed to it’s academic definition requires the State to have total control over every individual from cradle to grave. As it requires total control by the State over all facets of people’s lives, Socialism can’t allow any authority by family or faith unless that authority is merely a proxy for itself.

Obama: You Failed Me

Yesterday, June 19, 2015 Obama gave yet another speech, this time in Beverly Hills, CA, and he was not happy. Apparently, he’s become quite disillusioned and now believes that his constituency has failed him.

“When I ran in 2008, I in fact did not say I would fix it. I said we could fix it,” Obama told an audience of about 250 at a fundraising event here at the stately hillside home of film mogul Tyler Perry. “I didn’t say, ‘Yes, I can.’ I said, ‘Yes, we can.'”

The president continued: “If you’re dissatisfied that every few months we have a mass shooting in this country killing innocent people, then I need you to mobilize and organize a constituency that says this is not normal and we are going to change it.”

— Barack Obama

This, of course, is Obama in a nutshell. The boy hasn’t failed; instead, he’s been failed by anyone and everyone. Or, at least, that’s how Obama’s pettiness and narcissism demands that he see things.

Yet, to borrow Obama’s catchphrase, Let me be clear – he’s not entirely wrong in what he said. A POTUS has deliberately limited ability to affect change and his greatest tool, the Bully Pulpit, only works if people respond to the POTUS’ rhetoric with action…and the Liberals, Progressives, and their minority tenants by and large have repeatedly failed to do so.

The problem with Obama’s belief, attitude, and angry rhetoric is that he’s stupid to believe that his constituency would ever take action. All of them are Statists looking for the Nanny State to take care of them and/or those who they see as possessing “protected traits.” If they were cognitively, emotionally, and philosophically willing and able to take responsibility for getting done what they feel needs to be done they wouldn’t have been likely to need the State to accomplish things in the first place.

True, they elected Obama because he was a Black. Yet they still expected him to be their messiah and to get the jobs they wanted done with as little effort and sacrifice on their parts as was possible.

This again is Obama in a nutshell. The boy doesn’t expect to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear; he expects the sow to do it herself.
