First Lady Obama's hypocrisy: what's this "we" white woman...

Error message

Following Paul Ryan’s tepid endorsement, it didn’t take long for Donald Trump to have Ryan wishing he hadn’t. Trump continues to do his worst to divide us along Anglo/Hispanic lines and the latest was his attack on Federal Judge Gonzalo Curiel, the presiding judge over the Trump University debacle. Trump said Judge Curiel has “conflicts of interest” which render him incapable of judicial objectivity and he wants him off the case: “He’s a Mexican. We’re building a wall between here and Mexico."

Trump’s bombast in service of his churlishness is an uncapped fire hydrant. Maybe the best reason not to vote for him is careful consideration of what the world would look like with this blowhard jumping into the steaming cauldron of Ki Jinping, Duterte, Kim Jong-un, Khamenei, ISIS, Netanyahu, and Putin—four of them with nuclear triggers and two others close.

Which brings me to the woman who includes you and me in her imperial “we." First Lady Michelle Obama claims to speak for all of us when she says Donald Trump “is not who we are." "We don’t build up walls to keep people out.” Mrs. Obama continues, "I have seen how leaders [who] dehumanize entire groups of people often do so because they have nothing else to offer.” She concludes, "that is not who we are. we’re all in this together. We always have been.”

What Mrs. Obama hides and members of the press are too bathed in the bloodshed of their own children to reveal is that... 

Mr. and Mrs. Obama have, in fact, built a wall “to keep people out.” Their wall dwarfs the wall along our southern border proposed by Donald Trump, both in the numbers it keeps out and the cost of its effectiveness.

Their wall is called “freedom of choice” and “women’s healthcare,” and it keeps people out of our country to the tune of somewhere around one and a half million per year.

It’s cost?

Astronomical. Their wall kills every child who touches it. But not just the child: each murder of an unborn causes two deaths—the death of the child and the death of the mother’s conscience (which is almost as tragic).

Mrs. Obama and her husband are the very leaders she condemns. They “dehumanize entire groups of people” by referring to them as “fetuses.” They have nothing else to offer but the bloodshed of the innocent and defenseless. They have built their careers on the wholesale slaughter of many millions of babies, and yet here this woman sitting in our nation’s White House has the audacity to lecture us on “who we are.”

What’s this “we” white woman? You and your husband are butchers on a scale unimaginable to monsters like Hitler, Chairman Mao, Pol Pot, and Stalin. Both you and the Clintons have run on the platform of the mass murder of tens of millions of unborn children, yet you have the hypocrisy to lecture Donald Trump and his supporters, saying they are the ones who “build up walls to keep people out,” and “that is not who we are”?

No, Mrs. Obama, you are much, much more “not who we are” than Donald Trump and his supporters.

No, Mrs. Obama, we “have not always been… in this together” with you.

You, your husband, and the Clintons are bloody ghouls who have no fear of God and we can’t bear the sight of you or the sound of your voices.

Your rulers are rebels And companions of thieves; Everyone loves a bribe And chases after rewards. They do not defend the orphan, Nor does the widow’s plea come before them. Therefore the Lord GOD of hosts, The Mighty One of Israel, declares, “Ah, I will be relieved of My adversaries And avenge Myself on My foes. I will also turn My hand against you, And will smelt away your dross as with lye And will remove all your alloy. Then I will restore your judges as at the first, And your counselors as at the beginning; After that you will be called the city of righteousness, A faithful city." (Isaiah 1:23-26)
