There is a disturbing war on men that is currently raging inside the United States. Former First Lady Michelle Obama fueled the flames of this war on Tuesday when she gave a speech at the Obama Foundation Summit in which she criticized men and sought to divide Americans along gender lines.
Here are some gems from this speech:
“Y’all should get you some friends. Get you some friends and talk to each other, because…[women] straighten each other out on things. Y’all need to go talk to each other about your stuff because there’s so much of it…it’s so messy. Just talk to each other about why you’re the way you are.”
"The problem in the world today is we love our boys and we raise our girls, you know? We raise them to be strong and sometimes we take care not to hurt men, and I think we pay for that a little bit...It’s powerful to have strong men but what does that strength mean? Does it mean respect… or are we protecting our men too much so they feel a little entitled or a little self-righteous sometimes?”
Michelle's comments here may seem relatively harmless, but when put in the context of what she and her husband have said in the past, it's anything but that. The Obamas spent eight years dividing our country along racial and gender lines, leaving the U.S. more divided than ever before by the time they left the White House. Many of us were hoping that with the Obamas out of the picture, we could finally put aside our differences and come together as a nation again. With this speech, however, Michelle is showing that she has no intention of retreating from the spotlight and instead wants to continue dividing the American people.
Can you imagine what would happen if any man, especially a straight white male, gave a speech in which he slammed women as entitled and self-righteous? He would immediately be savaged by the mainstream media and his career would be over. In contrast, a woman like Michelle Obama is free to launch any kind of sexist attack on men that she pleases, because in the eyes of the left, men deserve to be attacked.
Also, it raises eyebrows to hear Michelle Obama tell parents how to raise their boys when she only has two daughters. If she were a mother of two boys telling parents how to raise their girls, she likely would have been called out for this. Once again, however, since it was boys she was attacking, nobody is questioning her for it.
