I was shocked to read the statement of former first lady Michelle Obama issued after the incident on January 6 in Washington DC, which she called a “violent insurrection attempt by pro-Trump rioters at the U.S. Capitol building.”
Obama’s statement also calls out the obviously biased treatment the primarily WHITE pro-Trump fanatics faced by law enforcement relative to that received by mostly peaceful BLM supporters during their lawful demonstrations.
According to the dictionary, the meaning of insurrection is an act or instance of rising in revolt, rebellion, or resistance against civil authority or an established government.
What’s wrong with this woman? She is in town and doesn’t see the houses? Did she already forget the long months of “peaceful” threats and vandalism after the death of George Floyd in May 2020?
Did she forget the nightly assault on the federal courthouse in Portland, Oregon as part of a “peaceful resistance?” Did she forget the “peaceful” violent acts of mobs in at least 140 cities; and the fires, looting, and vandalism that caused many millions of dollars in damage to buildings and private businesses?
Did Mrs. Obama forget when the Third Precinct police station in Minneapolis was set ablaze at night (apparently, they always work the graveyard shift) as violent protests continue in the city and other cities across the United States?
Rioters broke into the precinct, at night of course, after police on the rooftop previously tried to disperse a gathering crowd using “flash-bang” shots and tear gas. The “peaceful protesters” entered the building and sparked the fire. According to news reports, police officers on the roof had to be rescued by helicopter.
Has it ever occurred to Mrs. Obama, as many other people believe, that a group of criminal elements, including Antifa, infiltrated the actual and real peaceful protesters? Anybody paid by George Soros is capable of any kind of atrocity.
The mainstream media and socialist networks gave us the opportunity to watch thousands of peaceful (in fact, very peaceful) protesters standing next to each other until a group of unknown people decided to break into the Congress building.
Mrs. Obama’s words in her statement, “the primarily White pro-Trump fanatics,” shows clearly that she is a strong and determined racist who cannot stand White people. It really surprises me that a woman who claims to be an educated and intelligent person can harbor so much hate against other human beings.
We will never forget her words when her husband became the first Black United States president: “This is the first time I feel proud of this country.” Did she mean then that she was never proud of her own country; that her husband needed to win an election for her to feel some type of pride?
After reading her words I had no other choice but to think that if Barack Obama’s mother, who was White, were alive today, the life of that poor woman would be a miserable torment with a daughter-in-law like Michelle Obama, who could make even her own husband’s mother’s life a living tragedy just for being White.
In my 63 years in this country, I have never seen so much hate among people and verbal attacks against members of the same party just for making a mistake. Take, as an example, the group of people who harangued the South Carolina senator, Lindsey Graham, at the Reagan Airport in Washington, DC while he was waiting for a flight.
The senator was called a traitor and a garbage human being. It is well known that the senator did not act properly and betrayed the trust of President Trump, but we cannot measure everyone with the same ruler.
If we are going to speak about traitors and garbage human beings, we need to include in that list U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton; U.S Attorney General Jeff Sessions; U.S. Attorney General William Barr, and a few others that stabbed President Trump in the back without mercy. Even Vice President Mike Pence is not very clean
in his latest actions.
The very people speaking in favor of our democracy and the First Amendment of the United States Constitution are destroying our country with all the hate they carry in their hearts.
