Michelle Obama Would Like Students to Monitor Family Members for Racial Insensitivity

Pete Kasperowicz, The Blaze, May 19, 2014

{snip}

The first lady spoke on Friday to graduating high school students in Topeka, Kansas, and in remarks released over the weekend, Obama said students need to police family and friends because federal laws can only go so far in stopping racism.

“[O]ur laws may no longer separate us based on our skin color, but nothing in the Constitution says we have to eat together in the lunchroom, or live together in the same neighborhoods,” she said. “There’s no court case against believing in stereotypes or thinking that certain kinds of hateful jokes or comments are funny.”

To address these limitations in the law, Obama asked students to take steps to “drag my generation and your grandparents’ generation along with you” in the fight against racism.

“Maybe that starts simply in your own family, when grandpa tells that off-colored joke at Thanksgiving, or you’ve got an aunt [that] talks about ‘those people,’” she said. “Well, you can politely inform them that they’re talking about your friends.

“Or maybe it’s when you go off to college and you decide to join a sorority or fraternity, and you ask the question, how can we get more diversity in our next pledge class?” she added. “Or maybe it’s years from now, when you’re on the job and you’re the one who asks, do we really have all the voices and viewpoints we need at this table?

“But no matter what you do, the point is to never be afraid to talk about these issues, particularly the issue of race,” she said.

    I took a class on Orwell last term. It is spectacular how relevant it was to today’s antiracist mobs. Likewise, it is spectacular to behold how illiberal liberals become when they became the establishment.

    • Oil Can Harry

      Isn’t this the same woman who along with her husband spent 20 years cheering on the racist, anti-white and anti-American sermons of their spiritual advisor Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

  • NKVD Secretary Michelle Obama.

    Does anyone know the racial demographics of the students at Sidwell Enemies School? I know they have at least two blacks.

    • r j p

      White 59%
      Two or more races 16%
      Black 14%
      Hispanic 4%
      .
      “Two or more races” would be mostly half-black – no such thing as a half black.
      So at 14% darkie, and ~16% half darkie, it must be diversity heaven.

      • Thing is, I have my doubt that what Great Schools tells us is true in this case.

    • NeanderthalDNA

      Turn the children against their parents, cause strife. What’s next? Obama your big black mama website for kids to report racist parents?

      • rasher223

        Pretty sure those crazy comments lifted alot of eyebrows from those students and their parents alike.

        No sane person would nod in agreement to such a fringe suggestion.

    • Jesse James

      Michelle is a soul sister to Winnie Mandela. She would probably like to necklace people like us with stacks of burning tires. Communists always become more and more excessive and violent when they gain power. They will burn this country to the ground in their fanatical pursuit of non-existent in nature equality.

      • Jesse James

        Brian I did know that necklacing was not used on whites in South Africa but the US isn’t South Africa of twenty years ago. Seems to me that plenty of whites have been murdered in grisly ways by blacks in S. Africa since the end of apartheid in the gruesome murders often termed “farm murders” as they seemed to have started on isolated farmsteads. The depth of Michelle Obama’s hatred of whites is exhibited every week in her uncontrollable facial ticks and contortions, the best being reserved for beautiful white females. We are increasingly seeing more and more sadistic black torture/murders of whites in the United States very reminiscent of what is going on in South Africa. They will continue until whites organize and take firm measures to protect their own families and communities.

  • Frank_DeScushin

    Remember, don’t snitch if you’re a black person who saw another black person murder someone. But if you’re a white person who overheard you’re great aunt say something that black people may be offended by — then snitch away.

  • dd121

    This is reminiscent of when the Chinese communists had kids report their parents for forbidden thoughts.

    • mobilebay

      This also happened in Nazi Germany.

      • Jesse James

        and the Soviet Union.

        • Zaporizhian Sich

          It was even more widespread in East Germany.

          • Hallie Eva

            On the topic of Stasi monitoring.

            Zapo, if you have not already viewed it, may I recommend highly the German language film,
            “The Lives of Others.” Quiet, but intense, masterfully directed.
            What makes it even more compelling, its star, the late Ulrich Mühe, was himself bugged by East Germany’s Stasi.

          • Jesse James

            I second this recommendation. Watch it and understand that America, “the land of the free” has managed to take all humanity out of surveillance.

          • Hallie Eva

            Precisely what I think of when watching this film, Jesse. We all should view this timely picture.
            I have seen it several times, noticing something missed before in the multidimensional narrative.
            Actor Herr Mühe’s quietly effective characterization, as he eavesdrops on the playwright and his lover making love, reads the Brecht book that he pinched from their apartment, listens to their piano playing, denies being Stasi to the child in the elevator, draws me in so closely, I can hardly breathe watching the man’s face as he evolves into humanity.

          • Zaporizhian Sich

            Everybody was bugged, one out of three people was spying on everyone else for the Stasi. When the public found out just how far they were going, they went berserk and burned the Stasi buildings down. There was not one moment where people were not being bugged, not even in the bathroom. Contrary to popular myth, they did not follow the Soviet Union’s lead, it was the other way around.

          • Hallie Eva

            Zapo, you have much to teach as we watch our own freedoms slip away in subtle and not so subtle increments. Thanks for speaking up.
            “The Lives of Others” shows us how completely the bugging devices invaded the playwright’s flat, monitoring every aspect of his private life.
            Would we ever have the courage to burn a government building that housed such a nefarious, intrusive agency? One wonders if DHS has us bugged to this extent via all the communication devices we use.
            I have never hated an administration, not even the despicable, pathological liar Slick Willy’s, as much as this one. The country I have known and loved is gone. Will we be able to take it back?

  • dusa1957

    Not only does the federal government want to turn kids into politically correct spies, reporting their relatives, but in the near future I have no doubt there will be criminal penalties for “hate speech”. Without a doubt, being accused of being a racist is far more serious an offense in this country than being an armed robber or murderer.

      So true. I’ve long said that “racism” has created a new felony: Offending In The First Degree

    Michelle is plagiarizing, Pol Pot, Stalin and Hitler. They practiced these ideas long before her.

  • dusa1957

    Because all it takes is an accusation of racism to ruin a career or reputation, I have no doubt the race hustlers will continue to grow in number and clout, using this very effective tool to shakedown not only deep-pocket companies but increasingly individual citizens as well. Say goodbye to free speech.

  • jane johnson

    Say what you like about “Dubya”, but Laura Bush was an exemplary First Lady, and I cannot imagine her encouraging children to basically commit sedition against their own families. This is absolutely outrageous and unacceptable. This woman is deranged.

    • IstvanIN

      She was a class act compared to her husband or her predecessor.

    • Shawn_thefemale

      She is a vile, hate-filled, resentful, angry – no, make that livid – perpetual black victim. No amount of status could give her one iota of class.

    Many of us are not afraid to talk about race. But based on real life experiences and current genetic research, she would not like what we have to say.

  • Tom Thumb

    It’s always been my opinion Michele Obama wasn’t too bright, but now I’ll add she’s not rapped to tight either. In another time, she’d have had a net thrown over her and been given large doses of Thorazine to keep her mellow.

  • dusa1957

    In the span of my lifetime this country has gone from 90% white to 65% white (and dropping), from widespread hatred of communism to love of it now (as exemplified by the opening socialist Democratic party), and from Negroes knowing their place to having a Negro as president and a disgusting Negress as first lady. I’m glad my life is almost over and I don’t have to see things get far worse, as they surely will.

    • JP Rushton

      If you go on a site like Reddit that is mostly younger kids and college students, the number of communists on that site is outrageous. Professing your love of communism on that site will get no detractors, but it will get you upvotes.

      • Frank_DeScushin

        Try posting race realism articles or articles about black mob attacks on Reddit. You’ll get down voted out of the building. After posting several such articles I got a notification from Reddit making me take a break from posting due to my down vote total.

      • GeneticsareDestiny

        Try 4chan instead, the /pol/ board in particular. It’s quite vulgar and filled with NSFW pictures, but there are tons of Millennials discussing conservative ideas there. Real conservative ideas, not “conservative” ideas like those of Mitt Romney.

        They discuss all of the following on a regular basis: biological racial differences, biological sex differences, immigration restrictionism, eugenics, miscegenation, IQ, the massive Third World→First World flood of people, etc.

        There are plenty of differing ideologies present on the board; you’ll see Nazis, communists, libertarians, anarchists, socialists, and anything else you could think of, but the one ideology that is rarely seen is the form of liberalism popular today among our ruling class. I don’t recall ever seeing anyone like that on there, except trolls only pretending to believe it to make everyone else mad.

        • JP Rushton

          I know all about /pol/. But with the board being anonymous and no karma system, people can be more crazy with their views. It might show us that people are willing to talk about these things, but not out in the open.

          I’m also doubtful of how many people there are genuine. SJWs love raiding places like that posting insane stuff just to see how people will react.

          Reddit is a lot more like a local college campus. Sure, you can talk about whatever you want, but if it’s politically incorrect, be prepared to be downvoted and harassed.

          It would be nice to have some real numbers, but I’m on the pessimistic side. I think young people are more politically correct and egalitarian than ever.

          • GeneticsareDestiny

            Oh, I’m sure a good chunk of the posters there are just raiding the place, and/or pretending to have “radical” ideas for fun, but some of them are legitimate. The fact that it’s anonymous makes it impossible to know just how many genuine racial realists are there, but I’d guess there’s a decent amount.

            Young people to me seem to be fracturing, or balkanizing. The liberals are getting even more psychotically liberal, while those of us who are sick of political correctness are moving further to the right.

            You’re spot on about Reddit being just like a college campus. I never bother with that site.

  • The creature known as Michelle O is not fit to be a servant in the White House much less a First Lady. She is not a “he” as some claim because she’s too much of a busybody to be a he. One million kids have dropped out of the school lunch program due to her meddling to promote “healthy” lunches. Now, she’s set her sights on turning white kids into “anti-racist” snitches.

    It’s time for a new Derbyshire type talk with your children, White America. This time, let them know that anti-racists hate them for their skin color. Let them know that anti-racists seek to destroy the white family. Let them know that anti-racists want mommy and daddy replaced by filthy thurd world enemy races.

    Kids are going to have to grow up fast if we are to save them from the Obama regime’s multipronged effort to exterminate us.

    • dusa1957

      I think the jig is already up for white people. Our birth rate is below replacement while the USA is being inundated with mestizos. Negroes run the country, free speech and our Constitutional Republic are dead.

If you say something that is “disallowed”, you are CRUCIFIED!!!. Seriously, what the hell is the difference between being brought up on charges in England, and being prosecuted, versus losing your livelihood and being persecuted? THERE IS NO DAMN DIFFERENCE!!! We HAVE NO FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS in this so called whatever we live in.

    • dusa1957

      This all traces to the fact that we live in a pure democracy now. The Constitution has been ignored for decades. Concepts like free speech, property rights, limitations on federal government power (which is largely what the Constitution is about), all derive from western white civilization. These concepts are foreign and unpopular with the Mestizos now becoming a majority in this country. They, along with the Negroes who have always loved big federal government welfare, now rule in this pure democracy of ours. The Constitution was ignored when the Fed was created, when socialist programs like social security and Medicaid and Obamacare were created, when freedom of assembly was ignored with the various “Civil Rights” bills, and when the federal government stuck it’s nose in areas it is not authorized to when bureaucracies like the EPA, Education Dept, Energy Dept and Housing and Urban Development were created.

      Of course, the Mestizo and Negro voters are not the real rulers, the real rulers are the oligarchy of multinational corporate globalists that want Mestizos as the majority population in the country in order to provide cheap labor. The Mestizos and Negroes are just useful idiots, blissfully unaware that their welfare benefits are going to be cut off once the economy collapses and the federal government imposes a police state.

    To blacks, whites who press criminal complaints against them for their crimes against whites are snitches. They also live by the ethos of snitches getting ditches, but if anyone should be found dead in a ditch, it’s black thugs.

    I have been, continue to be, and am getting more depressed about the state of the USA. You can call it “negativism, defeatism, and victimization”, but I don’t know how to “contribute anything positive”. The only thing I have is my one vote, which doesn’t count for much among a parade of sell-out candidates.

  • dusa1957

    What she’s really get it is, “Kids, your real family is the politically correct universe led by Barry and me, not your biological family. Your biological family, especially those evil old white grandparents, need to be reported to the federal government for racism, but really they need to die for their evil racism to end (quoting Oprah here).”
    This is straight out of Soviet or Communist Chinese propaganda, a depressing Orwellian thought-police state tactic. It’s incredible to me how far towards a total leftist-dictatorship this country has swung, with not a wimper from anyone who believes in free speech or liberty. Instead, political correctness has killed our once free Constitutional Republic.

    • Jesse James

      This meme being sold to kids that you create your own family is insidious and widespread. I am not certain but I think this idea originates from therapists attempting to help young adults get beyond problems created in them by dysfunctional families. I don’t deny that there are many incompetent, dysfunctional and sometimes even evil parents out there but I don’t believe these are anywhere near a majority of the parents. It seems to me that the overuse of this idea is part of the lefts desire to destroy the traditional family. “Oh your parents just don’t get you, here take this handout and come check out our next LBGTYOGON>D meeting down at the Student Union and really explore your sexuality and individuality.” You also see it in terms of political agitation and indoctrination particularly when children of conservative parents get turned over to our looney left universities.

  • 4321realist

    With all the hateful anti-white rhetoric coming from the black community involving about 96% of them, it’s amazing that this woman is too stupid to realize that there is FAR, FAR more denigration of white people coming from blacks than the other way around.

    She can’t see it nor can other blacks for the most part. Nothing illustrates their child-like mentality better than this fact.

    And that is one of many important reasons blacks can’t integrate with anybody. They’re just too mentally deficient…..besides being prone to violence.

    • dusa1957

      It’s not that she can’t see the denigration of white people, it’s that she thinks that such denigration is justified. For Negroes, white people are evil sinners, and white people owe Negroes a NEVER-ENDING DEBT FOREVER for all the injustices done to Negroes. As Oprah would put it, those white people just have to die for “racism” to end — the part she didn’t say was, the sooner they die the better.

  • SentryattheGate

    Speaking of Zimbabwe, the UN (and US) turned a blind eye to the racism going on there (and now South Africa) with whites being massacred, their lands taken, yet when the blacks were starving after killing off the productive white farmers, the UN Food Program came in to feed them! I’m sure you’re aware of this, Jesse; just thought I’d bring it up to other readers.

  • Jason

    Michelle Robinson Obama grew up in circumstances more privileged than most Blacks.
    She appears to have little or no awareness of the extent to which most Blacks indulge in
    anti-white jokes and jibes that a raw, rather hateful, and uninhibited within most Black
    communities. Maybe a law school education can permit her to see ray-cism HERE
    but not back THERE ?

    How many bruthas and sistas care about NASCAR at all? I’d say more blacks in america have an interest in ice hockey or snowboarding than in stock car racing….

  • Monitoring family members for “racism”, hmmm? What punishments is she proposing? Last I checked, making “racially insensitive” comments in private conversation inside one’s own home is Constitutionally-protected speech under the First Amendment. A Constitutional amendment can not be voided or modified by statute, only by a 3/4 majority of all the nation’s state legislatures (38 states). Even the mere proposal of an amendment can only be successfully made by either a 2/3 majority of all state legislatures (34 states) OR a 2/3 majority in both the US House of Representatives and the Senate.

    For someone who attended Harvard Law School and who is married to a sitting PotUS, this floon seems woefully uninformed about the workings of the nation’s laws.
