Michelle Obama in 1954

by Selwyn Duke   5/21/14

Tony Bennett left his heart in San Francisco — and Michelle Obama left her brain in 1954.

Addressing graduating high-school students the other day in the Topeka, Kansas, school district, the federal lunch lady said, referring to the Brown v. Board of Education decision, “[Y]our experience here in Topeka would have been unimaginable back in 1954….” And perhaps this is true.

It also would have been unimaginable back in 1554 or 954. After all, the institutions making that experience possible hadn’t been birthed yet.

You know, those institutions created by European/ European-descent civilization.

That civilization that Darth Vegan is tacitly impugning with her racial agitation.

The point is that if you’re going to talk about the past, don’t tendentiously cherry-pick it for destructive ideological purposes. It’s much as discussion about slavery. Not only is the focus always on the less than one percent of the history of slavery that was written in the US (it’s one of the world’s oldest institutions), but the most significant point is missed: Whites were not the first to practice slavery.

But they were the first to abolish it.

If some take offense at this, they can pound sand. I take offense at the constant derision aimed at my civilization by critics who should get down on their knees, kiss the ground trod by our ancestors and thank God for our civilization’s existence. Where else could effete ne’er do wells complain about injustice while living a life of silk, satin and Sidwell Friends and dining on Kobe beef?

Really, this all reminds me of how no good deed goes unpunished. This focus on a group’s sins to the exclusion of its triumphs is much like trying to epitomize a cracker-jack golfer by some of his three-putts while ignoring his many championships; it’s like condemning a great rocket engineer over a few failed trial launches and ignoring that he got you to the moon.

M. Obama also said to the students, “We know that today in America, too many folks are still stopped on the street because of the color of their skin….” This is absolutely true. Just this past Mother’s Day weekend a white family was stopped and beaten by a black mob because of the color of their skin.

Of course, these black-on-white racial attacks — already a frequent but largely unreported phenomenon — will only worsen with racial hustlers such as the Obamas peddling their “series of agreed-upon myths,” to use Napoleon’s characterization of history.

And this agitation has its effect. Just consider the testimonial Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson, president of the Brotherhood Organization for a New Destiny (BOND), gave about how race-hustling affected his attitude prior to his religious conversion. He said in a 2013 Los Angeles Times interview, “I believed the lie that because I was black, I wasn’t going to be able to make it because of the white man…. I was listening to people like Jackson and Louis Farrakhan…. He talked about the blue-eyed devil, and I believed him. I started hating white people.” And since most people don’t experience religious conversions, what’s the result of this brainwashing?

It’s that now, “not all but most black people are so racist toward white people,” Peterson explained.

And this explains the Obamas. They are obsessed with race.


And what, America, did you expect when electing a far-left, radical, black-liberation-theology-church-attending, Marxist-leaning, terrorist-consorting ex-socialist-party member who cut his political teeth in the Chicago machine? Mr. Smith goes to Washington?

Well, it was actually Uncle Sam goes to Hell.

    Kevin Cosby, a black pastor in Louisville, was taken to task a decade or so ago for allowing then-Rep. Anne Northup (a conservative Republican and thus a racist, no matter that she has an adopted black child), noted that many liberals seem to be like Rip Van Winkle: they went to sleep back in the 1960s and just woke up, unaware of the changes. (A good example is that the phrase “token Negro” simply disappeared because it was no longer needed.) I’ve referred to such people as “Rip Van Winkle liberals” ever since.

    Of course, liberals choose not to be aware of history. This makes it very convenient for them, since they get to forget a lot of facts that would be inconvenient (many of which you cite here). And if they control education, eventually only a few experts will know any better — and liberals hope eventually to get rid of that problem. “Who controls the past controls the future; who controls the present controls the past.”

    And, unfortunately, your conclusion is all too accurate.

    It’s hard to comment on such a hard-hitting and devastatingly accurate article, except to say that, Mr. Duke, I salute you.

    Michelle was -10 years old when the Brown decision was made. By the time she was old enough to be cognizant of the importance most school districts in the South had been desegregated for at least 10 years. If she wants to see real racism she should return to Jeremiah Wrights church in Chicago.


    Too few have been willing to attack Michelle Obama as she deserves. No ad hominem here, just a quick take-down of one of the Left’s many false assumptions.
