Personally, I think it’s hilarious that Michelle Obama told Oprah “we” don’t have “hope” anymore because Barack’s leaving office and his third term lost in a landslide.
As if the only way any sane human being can have hope is to mindlessly believe in a political ideology that’s totally divorced from reality. I’m assuming, to paraphrase her infamous statement from 2008, that for eight years she felt proud of her country but now she feels contemptuous towards America.
She’s Not the Only One
There are a lot of people fleeing Aleppo, Syria for their lives that probably feel nothing but contempt towards America. When it comes to Aleppo, the media has done what the media always does in their reporting – they’ve left out important facts. Did you know that Aleppo is the largest city in Syria with a population over two million making it larger than the capital Damascus? Of course not, because the media hasn’t explained that. To put the scope of Aleppo in context, population-wise it’s the size of Houston or Philadelphia which rank fourth and fifth largest in the United States respectively. Imagine if the whole of Philadelphia was a bombed out wreck and people were fleeing for their lives by the tens of thousands. That’s Aleppo.
Because the Obamas feel nothing but contempt for America, the natural extension of those feelings is the idea that American influence in the world historically has only served to divert the arc of human development away from good and towards evil. Remove America from the calculus of foreign affairs, so their thinking goes, and people would naturally trend towards good. Which sounds great in the faculty lounge where everything white and western is reviled, but as anyone that’s done time in realville knows, it’s pure stupidity masquerading as intellectualism.
There’s a generation of future terrorists that will strike the west because when they needed America’s help, a contemptuous occupier in chief and his hopeless wife felt that anything America might have done on their behalf would have made things worse. Not because doing something would have made things worse. But because America doing something would have made things worse.
After eight years of non-stop blame all things western, white, and especially American for everything first, a majority of Americans were ready for a change.
It’s a Notion Liberals Reject
To listen to the left though, the 2016 electoral map was solid blue from coast to coast – and not just on the coasts – and a vast majority of Americans wanted four more years of same old same old. Never mind that in the post-World War II era, only once has a single political party held office for longer than two terms and it wasn’t the jack ass party that did that. And never mind that the left’s choice to serve as Obama’s third term was Hillary Clinton.
We’re supposed to believe – in the same way we’re supposed to believe that any American influence, by virtue of that influence being American, is bad – Hillary Clinton was Mother Teresa, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, Harvey Milk, and Ronald Reagan all rolled into a pantsuit. In that view, how is it possible her Presidency was stolen from her?
The Russians Ate My Homework
For a moment, put 2015 and 2016 completely out of your mind. Then say to yourself, “Russian hackers infiltrated the election causing Donald Trump to win”. If your next step is to look over your shoulder to see if the guys in white suits are coming to take you away ha-haaa coming to take you away ho ho-hee-hee ha-haaa, you’re on point. The idea of Russian hackers being the factor that decided election night 2016 is absurd.
Russians didn’t hack voting machines and change the votes. Didn’t the mainstream media assure us that it was impossible for voting machines to be hacked.
Even if Russians were behind all those leaked emails Obama said were disinteresting, Russians didn’t create the content of those emails. Those emails were like a log tossed on the already burning bonfire that used to be Hillary’s integrity. Forget about the server and the Clinton Foundation. Even push aside Hillary’s claim that she and Bill were broke when they left the White House. Hillary was dishonest. From her claims that NASA and the Marine Corps rejected her in the 1960s and 1970s respectively, to her new found New Yorkness she rode to a Senate seat, the woman lived in lies.
Not to mention, Hillary represented Obama’s third term which itself was a mimeograph copy of liberal policies half a century or more old – back when mimeographs were a thing.
The Only Way the Russian Excuse Works
There’s only one way the Russian hacking excuse works. If Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump had run identical campaigns, then the excuse makes sense. Did they run identical campaigns?
Not even close.
Hillary’s campaign was a choreographed as they come. She campaigned the way North Koreans assemble in stadiums and perform for the Dear Leader. Reportedly, it took a staff of around a dozen aides to spend the better part of a day to compose and then issue her tweets. Every time she took the stage at a campaign event her schtick was predictable:
• Prance across the stage like a cow in a field.
• Wave at the crowd with a faux grin plastered on her face.
• Point at the audience, pretending she recognized someone and then mouth words at them.
• Clap like one of those wind-up toys that marches around bashing cymbals together.
The crowd turn out at her events sucked. There was nothing fresh, exciting, or new in the 20th century campaign she tried to pull off in 2016. When she did try to appear hip and cool, it came across as awkward – from the Scoobie van ride to Chipotle to hot sauce and her “jus chillin” moment, Hillary came across as a weirdo.
If That’s What Hope Looks Like
The only people that bought into Hillary’s campaign are weirdos. They are the same kinds of weirdos that believe Hillizzle and Cheldizzle sit around drinking forties while BIllzizzle drops the beat. They are the people that cheered when Madonna promised her audiences she’d deliver oral sex to anyone that voted for Hillary. They are the ones that think Beyoncé is an artist and found it brilliant that Hillary grifted herself on to Beyoncé’s shows in Florida right before election day. They think Jay Z is a poet.
These people think Hillary Clinton loves hot sauce because they read something in Reddit, Vox, or Salon about it. They don’t know anything about the Scoobie van, her private server, have never heard of the Clinton Foundation, and when they hear “Benghazi” they think it’s a person – Ben Gazi, who is probably the fake news icon that created that video that made Libyans spontaneously riot when Haliburton was Secretary of State.
It’s weirdos like these that look at recounts, riots, and elector intimidation as legitimate means of dissent. Because in their view Donald Trump represents America and not the world and since everything American is inherently evil, it’s up to them and them alone to save the world from the red, white, and blue menace.
As hilarious as it is that Michelle Obama says she feels hopeless, it’s heart-warming to know all these hard left nutjobs have finally been cut down to size too – for they are truly a hopeless lot.
