The ever-objective LA Times cited left-wing propaganda site Media Matters in a piece wherein the likeness of Michelle Obama as Marie Antoinette was deemed “racist .”
The caricature of Obama as a profligate queen relies on the racist stereotype of an “uppity Negro,” which emerged among slave masters in an earlier American era.
You can’t be serious. Progressives’s incessant use of the race card to defame and libel Americans into silence as a bully tactic is what truly invokes racist comparisons. The modern day Bull Connor, ready to unleash the attack dogs on anyone who dares to disagree with the administration. Want to control your own health care? Racist ! Want a balanced budget amendment? Racist ! Believe that congress should spend within its means? Racist ! Point out statistics that more Americans than ever are on food stamps? Racist !
Michelle Obama has received intense criticism for the flagrant way in which she spends taxpayer money and the tone-deafness she demonstrates. Two-thousand dollar dresses, wearing sneakers that cost the equivalent of three months mortgage payments while at a homeless shelter, insisting on million-dollar Hawaiian vacations while your husband simultaneously lectures Americans about scaling back, yes, the comparison to Antoinette is apropos. Those who call it racist demonstrate the failings of public education. Antoinette was considered extravagant while France starved. Along the line of progressive thinking, heaven forbid Barack Obama ever get his likeness on Mount Rushmore for fear of defeated liberals crying out “uppity!”
What blows my mind about this is that the LA Times quoted propaganda site Media Matters as an authority on this. Where were the partisan hacks at the LA Times when Media Matters was paid by SEIU to attack black conservatives in the wake of the Kenneth Gladney beating? If we’re going to discuss racism, there’s a cover story right there.
The true racists in this story are the progressives who propagate such accusations while at the same time supporting policies which stifle the job market and enslave Americans to the master of the Democrat plantation. Trumping up cases of racism where none exists is a great way to avoid explaining why black unemployment is at an all-time high under the nation’s first black president.
