As Hillary Clinton continues to lie about her illegal use of a private email server while she was Sec. of State and more revaluations surface about how two-faced she is and how she dreams of a border-less hemisphere (the effective end of our nation-state)…
… and how she and her husband literally stole billions from the people of Haiti after the earthquake in 2010, Michelle Obama delivered a breathless and over-acted speech yesterday about these new, unfounded accusations about Donald Trump kissing and groping women 20 or so years ago.
Obama lamented the “hurtful, hateful language about women” throughout the campaign, saying it was “painful” to those who expected leaders should meet “basic standards of human decency.”
Her voice quivered as she recalled a meeting with young women at the White House on Tuesday.
“I told them they deserve to be treated with dignity and respect,” Obama said. “I wanted them to understand that the measure of any society is how it treats women and girls.” CNN
Is that it? Is that the only measure of a society? How it treats women and girls? Can they do anything else to anyone else just so long as they treat women and girls with respect?
Obama said the comments made by Trump in the video, which was recorded in 2005, had left her “shaken.”
“I can’t stop thinking about this,” she said. “It has shaken me to my core in a way I could not have predicted.”
She added: “I know this is a campaign but this isn’t about politics. It’s about basic human decency. CNN
Then she got to the meat of the horror and brought in the “WONT SOMEBODY THINK OF THE CHILDREN?!?!” line:
“This was not just a lewd conversation,” she said. “This wasn’t just locker room banter. This was a powerful individual speaking freely and openly about sexually predatory behavior, and actually bragging about kissing and groping women, using language so obscene that many of us were worried about our children hearing it when we turned on the TV.” CNN
Dear God. A billionaire playboy silver-spooner asshole bragging about being able to grope women because he’s a rich celebrity. How will our nation survive that one?
Of course, when you’re talking about basic human decency, you could talk about:
You could talk about how Hillary Clinton pushed Obama and the leaders of other nations to forcibly remove (and eventually kill Gadhafi) on behalf of her friends in France and Britain who wanted access to Libya oil and gold mines. You could talk about that to your children but I guess that’s a little more complicated than saying to them “Be afraid or the Trump boogeyman will touch your raisins!!!”
Of course you could also talk about Michelle’s husband who famously joked about running illegal bombing campaigns in 7 different countries , once bragged about how good he was at killing people, started an illegal war in Libya without congressional approval and has assassinated 4 US citizens with drone strikes.
And, oh yeah… he pushed for and signed into law a little diddy that ended the ban on propaganda in the media making it just peachy keen if the government wants to turn the full might of their spin-doctors and CIA liars toward the people of this country so they can lie and mislead us without worry.
In Dec. of 2012, near the end of Michelle’s husband’s first term in office, someone put together a list of 49 children President Obama had killed with either drone strikes or cruise missile strikes. Numbers have been harder to come by since then but the Intercept did a study in Oct. of last year in which they concluded 90% of the people killed by President Obama in his signature drone strikes were actually civilians who just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.
Getting a firm number on just how many children Barack Obama has killed with his policies abroad is a difficult task.
How many died as a result of our “humanitarian bombing” campaign in Libya?
How many died during the regime change he OKed in Ukraine?
How many died at the hands of the CIA’s “moderate” terrorists in Syria?
And how many died as a direct result of his drone and cruise missile strikes?
The numbers are probably in the thousands but I will say for sake of argument it’s easily in the hundreds at least.
But the Clinton version of the “left” in this country has a long, sordid history of, shall we say, “unique ideas” of morality when it comes to children.
Remember when Obama gave her the Presidential Medal of Freedom? I guess that is because she met the basic standards of human decency.
The very last thing anyone on the Clinton team should bring up is “basic human decency” especially after Hillary used all the pressure she could muster from the State Department to keep the Haitian government from increasing the minimum wage in the country from 20 cents an hour to a whopping 61 cents. That would have cost Hillary’s South Korean friends some serious profit margins, so she got them to cap pay for Haitian laborers at 35 cents per hour. Wanna guess at how many Haitian children suffer to this day as a result of that “basic human decency” of Michelle’s candidate?
But of course, with all this stuff coming out about Hillary being a two-faced lying globalist using the State Department to line her pockets and deleting thousands of troubling emails, this is the best they got, isn’t it? Identity politics enhanced by the corporate media’s endless barrage of Trump-bashing hyperbole. Good thing President Peace Prize made it legal for them to use propaganda against the American people, right? I mean after all, she is the continuation of the Obama administration, right? All’s fair now.
