Even Michelle Obama admits people have to be ‘dragged’ into a future of Hope & Change

Friday night, Michelle Obama delivered a commencement address for graduates from five Topeka high schools.

She got one thing right — the only way I’m going to end up in a country governed by leftist ideologues is if I’m dragged there:

Many school districts, she said, are withdrawing efforts to integrate their students, and communities are becoming less diverse as people flee cities for the suburbs.

“As a result, many young people in America are going to school with kids who look just like them,” Obama said. “And too often, those schools aren’t equal, especially ones attended by students of color, which too often lag behind with crumbling classrooms and less experienced teachers.”

Obama suggested that segregation in American schools can be seen in how students cluster at separate lunch tables or isolate themselves in different clubs or activities.

“They never really reach beyond their own circles.”

The tendency toward separation isn’t limited to the classroom, she said.

“Too many folks are still stopped on the street because of the color of their skin, or they’re made to feel unwelcome because of where they’re from, or they’re bullied because of who they love.”

The Brown decision, she said, isn’t about the past. It’s about the future.

She called on students to battle deep-seated prejudices that persist years after the civil rights movement swept across the country.

“Graduates, it’s up to all of you to lead the way and drag my generation and your grandparents’ generation along with you,” she said.

“When you meet folks who think they know all the answers because they’ve never heard any other viewpoints, it’s up to you to help them see things differently.

Gee, I wonder why people are fleeing the cities for the suburbs. Oh yes, it’s because liberal/progressive policies have destroyed our cities!

It’s also hilarious that a couple who send their kids to an elite DC private school are whining about people who are fleeing inner-city public education (justifiably so).

Hypocrisy is the foundation of Hope & Change.

What’s the AP trying to say here?

Is the Associated Press implying that swimming pools are racist?

swimmingpools


Well, if air can be racist and climate change can be racist, I guess water can be too, right?

Anybody else see a Jesse Jackson shakedown of the pool industry on the horizon?

Update:

It occurred to me as I was driving to the store a while ago that the one thing we never read the MSM saying disproportionately kills minorities are abortion clinics. Wonder why that is?

Hope you like Joe Biden’s new presidential campaign ad, because you paid for it

By way of Keith Koffler, the video below was produced by the White House. In other words, we paid for this “Biden 2016” ad:

“Infrastructure stimulus” — why does that sound so familiar?

Why would we waste money deepening ports when according to global warming alarmists like Biden the water level is going to take care of that naturally?

NYPD blotter: Alec Baldwin arrested for ‘biking while a douchebag’

This story made me realize I haven’t been using the “celebrity idiots” tag nearly enough.

I didn’t even realize “biking while a douchebag” was an available charge, but I guess it is in NYC:

The scene of the arrest must have been fun. “I’ll have your badges! All of you! I’LL HAVE YOUR BADGES!”

Question: If Alec Baldwin ever has to call NYPD for help in an emergency, how intentionally slow will the response be?

Baldwin might find that he’d have less trouble with the NYC cops if he’d stop making it so damn much fun for them.

Meanwhile, back at NYPD headquarters, the questioning of Baldwin is going as expected:

Update:

Baldwin seems to be one of those guys who never notices that the common denominator in all of his troubles is himself. For example, I don’t know at all what happened, but in general, how big of a jackass do you have to be to get yourself put in handcuffs for riding a bike the wrong way down the street?

Eleanor Clift has out-clowned herself this time

I wrote a bit about Eleanor Clift’s absolutely hysterical spin on the Benghazi attack here. Video is at the link as well.

“Ambassador Stevens wasn’t murdered” by terrorists — “he died of smoke inhalation.”

How she was able to say that with a straight face is evidence of how far the disease has advanced.

Happy Mother’s Day! Unfortunately some have made it ‘National Irony Day’

To all you moms out there, including my own, not to mention the mother of my four great kids, thanks for all you’ve done, are doing and will do.

Unfortunately, because of people and organizations like late term abortion advocate Wendy Davis, NARAL and Planned Parenthood, this day is also known as “National Irony Day”:

I noticed that the moms of every single person in those tweets chose life.

And with that in mind…

“The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child, what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between.”

Revisionist history lesson of the day: Defeat of Nazi Germany was victory over capitalism or something

Yesterday I ran across this and have been laughing at it for nearly 24 hours.

From a self-described “left wing school teacher” from Australia:

Discuss.

If the MSM is going to help Team Hillary push ‘GOP war on women’ in 2016, there’s something they have to get out of the way first

In the late 1990s, a female White House intern was trashed to the point of suicidal thoughts in the aftermath of being taken advantage of by then Democrat President Horndog, whose wife will probably run for president in 2016.

Something like that could get in the way of the Democrats pushing the GOP “war on women” when Hillary’s trying to get elected in a couple of years. Whether it’s being done on a conscious level or not, that’s why we’re seeing the “exclusive” Lewinsky interviews this year.

It’s amazing, the MSM certainly instinctively knows what to do and when to do it. Even if it requires getting desperate enough to hint that Lewinsky could be a secret GOP operative:

It’s the Republicans’ fault!

Perfect:
