Look at that bone structure.
Now look at this bone structure.
Now tell me again how we’re all the same species.
Just after Tucker Carlson has a violent mob surround his house and try to beat the door down while his wife is home alone, the media has decided it’s a good time to come out and talk about how Donald Trump made Michelle Obama “feel unsafe” and fear for the lives of her children by asking for Obama’s birth certificate.
She says that she believed Trump asking about the document would make someone kill her children.
This is insane.
Michelle Obama’s memoir, “Becoming,” lays out some of the former first lady’s most damning statements on record against President Donald Trump, according to excerpts published ahead of the book’s release next week.
In the book, Obama reportedly chastised Trump for promoting what she called the “dangerous” birther conspiracy that could have endangered her family’s safety.
“The whole [birther] thing was crazy and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed,” Obama wrote, according to a Washington Post review. “But it was also dangerous, deliberately meant to stir up the wingnuts and kooks.”
For years, even prior to the 2012 US presidential election, Trump advocated the racist conspiracy theory that questioned the authenticity of President Barack Obama’s birth certificate and his citizenship.
“He doesn’t have a birth certificate, or if he does, there’s something on that certificate that is very bad for him,” Trump said during an interview with the Fox News host Laura Ingraham in 2011.
Obama added that she would “never forgive” Trump for promoting the birther movement.
“What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington?” she added, according to The Post. “What if that person went looking for our girls? Donald Trump, with his loud and reckless innuendos, was putting my family’s safety at risk. And for this I’d never forgive him.”
And yes, of course this was written before the Tucker incident, but the Washington Post has decided to release the excerpt right in the middle of the Tucker situation. This was obviously on purpose. The Tucker thing is big, and even a lot of leftists are saying “ummm… you’re sending a mob to try to break into the guy’s house at night?”
Because the obvious question with the Tucker situation is: what if they had broken through the door before fleeing the police?
Would they have beaten up his wife? Would they have killed her? Even if you accept that it is okay to organize a screaming mob outside of someone’s house because you disagree with their political commentary, what other reason would they have for trying to break the door down other than to physically harm the people inside the home?
The fact that the media is responding to this with Michelle Obama saying she’ll never forgive Trump for a “conspiracy theory” that she alleges could have gotten her kids killed shows how desperate and out of touch these people are.
Because in people’s minds, they are naturally comparing and contrasting these two stories: Michelle’s fears vs. Tucker’s real life siege on his home, and it makes the left look like a bunch of whiny, self-obsessed, completely detached lunatics.
“Words we disagree with are the real violence” is a horrible narrative to begin with – but when you are using that narrative in response to actual acts of violence, you have completely and totally lost the plot.
