More White House Officials at Michael Brown’s Funeral Than Thatcher’s

Fox News, August 25, 2014

The White House sent three officials to attend Monday’s funeral for Michael Brown in St. Louis–three more than it sent for former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s funeral last year.

The administration’s handling of the Brown funeral already has started to raise comparisons between the two.

For Monday’s funeral, the White House sent two officials with the White House Office of Public Engagement as well as Broderick Johnson, chairman of the My Brother’s Keeper Task Force.

No White House officials, though, were part of the presidential delegation sent last year to Thatcher’s funeral. For that, the White House sent former secretaries of State George Schultz and James Baker III–as well as the charge d’affaires to the U.K. and the former U.S. ambassador.

At the time, the nature of the delegation stirred controversy in the British media as tabloids claimed British officials felt snubbed that high-level American officials–including President Obama himself–were not attending.


But in the case of Brown, an unarmed black 18-year-old fatally shot by a police officer earlier this month, the Obama administration has devoted considerable resources. Attorney General Eric Holder visited Ferguson, Mo., last week and has dozens of investigators on the ground conducting a federal civil rights probe.

The administration also said that one of the White House officials attending the funeral on Monday had a personal connection.

Marlon Marshall, deputy director of the White House Office of Public Engagement, is a St. Louis native and went to high school with Michael Brown’s mother.

The other White House official is Heather Foster, public engagement adviser for the White House Office of Public Engagement.

    NoBama also didn’t send anybody to the General’s funeral who was recently killed. This has happened over and over again, but because he does so many bad things every week, they get superseded and forgotten.

    NoBama does not like White people, but he does love blacks (and Mooz-lims and feminazis and illegal aliens (preferably brown), and gays and eco-terrorists and, and, and…)

    It has EVERYTHING to do with race with NoBama.

      And Obama himself attended Mandela’s memorial. Priorities, you know.

        All he remembers is taking selfies with that hot White woman at Denmark’s helm.

  • phorning

    Obama hates the British in general and Thatcher in particular. Just think how those evil colonizers held his Kenyan ancestors back. This wasn’t a surprise.

      I’m English and I can’t stand Thatcher. She got elected by promising to end immigration and then did absolutely nothing. When our coal miners went on strike she conspired with one of her business donors to plan the import of tens of thousands of scabs from Turkey which thankfully never went ahead.

      • Her Cold War partner, Ronald Reagan wasn’t great shakes on domestic police, either. He signed an amnesty for illegal aliens that only encouraged more of them to come north, and also signed the 1986 Firearms Act, to which some truly nasty and completely unnecessary provisions had been added at the last minute.

        • bilderbuster

          Ronald Reagan also appointed a certain Eric Holder to sit on the DC Superior Court.

        • Tarczan

          They later admitted the amnesty was a mistake.

        • Visceral

          As governor of California in the early 1970’s, Ronald Reagan also pushed forward No Fault Divorce, eventually leading to the entire US following suit. Now anyone can legally cheat on their spouse, take half, and walk away from their marriage.

        • Paleoconn

          Thatcher and Reagan were among the earliest examples of CINOs.

      • Long Live Dixie

        I believe she was also responsible for the demise of Tyndall’s National Front, if memory serves.

      • kikz2

        we don’t like her either.. didn’t… but international diplomacy inre funerary decorum is expected, especially of major countries. well, we were…. eyeroll nevermind…

  • Extropico

    This is yet another quotidian example of why Obongo is a net positive for the edification of naive Whites on racism. Thank you for telegraphing your thoughts, Mr. Obama; you are more straightforward than Mr. Bush.

    • benvad

      I really believe people are mindlessly brainwashed by sports and don’t really care. They’ll be pushed around and will probably say thank you for it.

  • Truthseeker

    Obama has made it clear who his people are. If he wants to stay away from the funerals of our people, let him. He’s not one of us and doesn’t deserve the honor.

  • IstvanIN

    Obumer returned the White House bust of Winston Churchill and gave Queen Elizabeth a rap CD. He isn’t exactly a class act. He hates the UK. Don’t worry, the UK is our lapdog ally no matter what.

    • Interesting that Oogabooga presumed that Churchill bust, which was US government property was somehow his to return.

      • me

        Yeah, he’s one outrageous commie Negro!

    • bilderbuster

      Even Obama turns his back on the war criminal Churchill.
      Churchill was the cause of the bloodiest war in European history and lost The Empire in the process and this is the thanks he gets from a Kenyan who’s nation is now an independent African paradise because of Churchill’s folly?

      • Had Hitler studied European history at all, he would have known that Britain has always opposed the strongest Continental power: Spain, France, and Germany, in that historical order.

        • bilderbuster

          Hitler knew his history and made it as clear as possible to Britain that he wanted them to keep their empire and he wanted peace in the west.
          World War One should have made it obvious to Britain that their policy for the previous 400 years was out dated for the 20th century. Germany would have won WW1 if America hadn’t been dragged in even with Britain, France, Russia and their empires against Germany.
          In Churchill’s first speech as Prime Minister he said “You ask, What is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory, victory at all costs”. He was true to his word.
          In the end Western Europe lay in ruins, Eastern Europe was under Stalin’s Red Army including Poland who’s independence Britain had gone to war to defend. And the Empire was gone with Britain only a bankrupt island off the coast of Europe.

          • Knew his history, but still expected the British to take things sitting down? I thought the guy was an art-school flunkie.

          • bilderbuster

            Hitler never got the chance to be an art school flunkie.
            He wasn’t accepted into the art school he wanted to attend in Vienna.

  • Why does this not surprise me . . .
    Washington is chock-full of idiots..

  • There is no good reason for any public official to attend Mike “Gentle Giant” Brown’s funeral. There is only disgusting, lowlife politics involved. Screw Obama. I just hope when he’s out of the WH, he moves back to Kenya or somewhere where he’s never seen or heard from again.

    • His buddies have a mansion in Hawaii waiting for him. They can keep him; this Haole has no intention of ever visiting Hawaii again.

  • Long Live Dixie

    Could the Africanisation be any clearer? A president who openly celebrates the thug lifestyle would have been unthinkable even a decade or two ago.

    • texasoysterman

      I still don’t want to think about it.

  • antiquesunlight

    Any white person with a brain knows that Obama’s priorities are to show solidarity with blacks in any imaginable way and to shift the power structure in their favor (or at least out of the hands of Evil Whitey).

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    I’m surprised Obama hasn’t ordered all American flag at 1/2 mast.

    After all, flags were lowered for another druggie: Whitney Huston.

    A worthless thug is honored and gets VIP treatment at his funeral – most likely a 21-guns salute. But the funeral for Major General Harold Greene? Snubbed by Obama and Biden and zero representatives sent from the White House.

    Not that I would want the likes of Obama or Biden at my loved one’s funeral.

    Maybe Obama will sign an EO making Michael Brown Day a National Holiday. It could replace Labor Day and President’s Day.

    • me

      You could name a street after it–Michael ‘Trifflin’ Brown Boulevard. One way street to nowhere.

    The modern Republican party successfully combined the aristocratic
    tendencies and seething bigotry of the South with the soulless and
    destructive capitalism of the north.(until 11/06/08 that is) They are
    literally a synthesis of everything that was ever wrong with America.The
    Tea Party, a.k.a teabaggers are the shining beacon of ignorance, greed,
    and the serfs of One Percentile who by themselves, want to keep the
    commoners, morons, useful buffoons as serfs, to use and discard as they
    see fit. With the T-baggers they have been very successful, they are
    poor trash after all. Three klan kops have been “removed” thus far, 4 more to be announced by this weekend. This will no longer be the excepted face of America.

    • me

      You’re kinda stupid, aren’t ya? While the Republican party is, indeed, a cesspool of Zio-globalist whores, it doesn’t mean that most people that have joined the tea party movement are ignorant lowlifes. You should get out of your ivory tower more often…

      • Bon, From the Land of Babble

        Both main parties are almost identical and under the control of a hostile elite that funds both sides. Both are anti-White.

        George Wallace was not wrong when he said there isn’t a dime’s worth of difference between the Republicans and Demoncrats.

        This is one of the constant themes that comes up on AR forums from anti-Whites: They absolutely believe that if we aren’t Democrats, we are axiomatically Republicans who support a hateful, Nazi agenda.

        Do not vote. Do not respond to queries, opinion polls or surveys. Do not protest or go on demonstrations. Do not use the social medias, do not tweet or use Facebook.

        In a word, remain aloof from the entire political process.

        Silent and legal non-cooperation, let that be your way of showing your contempt for the tyrants who rule over you in the name of a “democracy” that does not exist.

        Instead, prudently guard your firearms, just in case you need them for self-defense.

        • I always vote. Even if I can find nothing worthwhile in any of the candidates, there is always a stupid, money-wasting local ballot initiative I want to vote against, or a necessary one (like replacing an old, high-traffic bridge near my home) that I want to vote for.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      Figures it would get an Engleman thumb. Israel beckons you, Rabbi.

    • Does the “Taxed Enough Already” acronym spell “TEA” or does it not?

    • I think the word you’re looking or was “accepted” not “excepted”, but hey, can’t let little things like knowing the difference between two completely different words with similar pronunciation get in the way of your righteous liberal crusade.

      I’m just being silly though, I always get a kick out of it when people like you cap off your little diatribe with an obvious grammatical error, it’s a nice reminder of just how stupid you people really are.

      And please, lose the Klingon battlecruiser avatar, it’s embarrassing to think an idiot like you is a trekkie. ( that’s how you spell battlecruiser, by the way, not batlcrewzer. But hey, we already know that learnin’ aint yer strong suit, don’t we?)

      Another cut and paste from a Democrat Party press release, misspellings and all.

      How original. YAWN

  • fatbaby

    I thought the funeral was comical.
    Some great orators there. material for many rap songs to come.

    The purpose of the gathering was to continue the saga that a poor, helpless, black child was murdered in cold blood by a racist white police officer. This is to constantly reinforce the idea that anything less than a murder conviction will be unacceptable. Wilson needs our help, please contribute to the fund.
