Recently, former First Lady Michelle Obama made some rather obtuse comments about the Republican Party while giving a speech at the Pennsylvania Conference for Women. Speaking on what she observed during State of the Union addresses her husband gave, Michelle Obama said, “When you are in the room, what you can see is this real dichotomy. It’s a feeling of color almost. On one side of the room it is literally gray and white. Literally, that is the color palette on one side of the room. On the other side of the room, there are yellows and blues and whites and greens. Physically there’s a difference in color, in the tone, because on one side all men, all white, on the other side some women, some people of color.” In other words, Republicans are all old white men. Never mind that during the 2016 Presidential election and during the Republican Primary, we saw Hispanic candidates, women candidates, and Dr. Ben Carson, an African-American. Conversely, the Democratic ticket had Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Jim Webb. Seems like the Democrats need to take a hard look in the mirror.
Michelle Obama’s comments are a perfect example of how the Left attempts to paint the Democratic Party as the all-knowing and all-tolerant ones whom Americans should trust. Mrs. Obama’s assertion that people distrust the political process because of old white men in the Republican Party is racist and asinine. The Left can’t accept the fact that among the Republican representatives in Washington D.C., we see women, African-Americans, and Hispanics. Perhaps the distrust Americans have of the political system stems from all the broken promises politicians from both sides of the aisle have made. Mrs. Obama also believes that, “As far as I’m concerned, any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice in a way.” I’m sure the 42 percent of females in America who voted for Donald Trump did so because they preferred to vote for someone who was not under FBI investigation, got Americans killed in Benghazi, or has been involved in destroying the lives of all the women Hillary’s philandering husband, former President Bill Clinton, has been accused of sexually assaulting.
In response to Michelle Obama’s racist comments, Representative Mia Love (R-UT) had a reply for the former First Lady. “I don’t know if she noticed, but I am not white, and I am not a male. This is the way that Democrats try to win elections instead of winning on the policies that actually help the American people and unite us. This is absolutely divisive language.” Representative Mia Love (R-UT) hit the nail square on the head and described very plainly how Democrats attempt to hold on to their base which is done not through substantive policies that actually make a difference, but rather the left and the Democratic machine creates fear, chaos, and anger toward another group based on the color of their skin. The tactics that the Democrats have been using against President Trump and his supporters follow the same modus operandi when it was the Democratic Party who started the Ku Klux Klan.
Representative Love went on to let Michelle Obama and her minions know that she can think for herself and does not fit into someone else’s definition of what she should think or do. “I don’t fit into a box. I am a wife; I’m a mother; I’m a Utahan; I am a Black Republican who cares about America and cares about all people.” What Representative Love and other Black Republicans represent scares the Democrats more than a 30-round magazine for an AR-15.
Perhaps Michelle Obama forgot that it was the Democratic National Committee who rigged the Democratic Primary in favor of Hillary Clinton and subverted the Democratic process for all those who voted for Bernie Sanders. Michelle Obama’s endorsement of a criminal who has a sordid past with a trail of bodies to follow, speaks volumes about how the Left thinks and what their priorities are. Sure, President Trump might be abrasive and even juvenile when it comes to Twitter, but as we have seen in recent events, despite all his grandstanding and Twitter feuds, President Trump cares about America and Americans, a concept which evades the Left and Michelle Obama.
