Michelle Obama Thinks Americans Are Really Racist: Country ‘Wasn’t Ready’ For Black Lady With Braids | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Remember former first lady Michelle Obama's newfound pride in America as her husband was gaining popularity in the 2008 presidential election? Well, it didn't really last long as she apparently thought Americans were still a bunch of bigots, despite Barack getting elected.

    Throughout her time in office, it appears she was so worried that America was such a racist nation that even her hairdo choice could doom her husband's legislative goals if she chose the wrong style.

    "As black women, we deal with it, the whole thing about do you show up with your natural hair," Obama said during an event with Hollywood celebrity Ellen DeGeneres this week. "As first lady, I did not wear braids. Being the first ... yeah, we had to ease up on the people. Cause I thought about it. I was like, it would be easier. Nope, nope. They're not ready."

    Despite her husband dominating the 2008 election and receiving 69,498,516 votes, she was still concerned that braided hair would block his healthcare reform bill from passing.

    "Let me keep my hair straight," the Martha's Vineyard summer resident recalled thinking. "Let's get health care passed."

    Of course, there have been historical instances of racial discrimination due to hairstyle choice, but the idea that America would be so racist the first lady's hair would stop Obamacare from being forced down the American people's throats is a bit laughable.

    In the last 35 years of politics, there have been only two memorable hairstyle choices that critics have used to lambast their opponents.

    The first is former President Donald J. Trump. For some reason, Leftists love saying he wears a toupee, but it seems to be his real hair. Admittedly, it is pretty mesmerizing and unique in American politics.

    Then there is that mop-headed rapscallion and disgraced ex-Governor Rod Blagojevich (D-IL). He's a pretty charming crook if we're being objective.

    Other than that, this author is hard-pressed to think of what anybody else's hair looks like let alone Michelle Obama's.

    For example, Ketanji Brown-Jackson was recently confirmed to the Supreme Court of the United States as the first black female Supreme Court justice.

    The only thing that stuck out from her approval process in the U.S. senate was the fact that she couldn't define the word "woman."

    Readers likely didn't notice that she was wearing braids. Why would they? Who really cares?

    Obama's ignorance and - shall we say - bull crap was eclipsed by her claim that the worst thing about her husband's time in office was when he chose to wear a tan suit.

    The first lady claimed that conservative criticism of the suit proved doing anything beyond straight hair would drive animosity.

    "The great indignity, the scandal of the Obama administration," she said of the incident.

    Of course, the reaction at the time could have been a little overblown, perhaps on par with the leftist meltdown that former Trump would give himself two scoops of ice cream while his guests only received one.

    The second thing is that the Obama administration was riddled with scandals. The IRS targeting of conservatives, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, spying on the media, "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor," and the beginning of the Russian collusion hoax.

    Yet that's par for the course for the Left. They often ignore the obvious if they can make themselves out to be a victim.

    Plus, as pointed out by columnist Derek Hunter, braids aren't even natural.

    "Braids aren't natural, plus the idea of braiding hair was common throughout Europe centuries ago, so it would have been cultural appropriation," Hunter tweeted.

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?

The "Woke" aren't just destroying our country, they are destroying families. There are now groups on social media to support "parents of estranged children". Most members have been canceled by their "Woke" children, including me. Its been a year and a half since I have seen my daughter and granddaughters. The pain in unimaginable and that doesn't matter. Now our Military is "Woke" which makes it difficult for them to be a cohesive unit required to fight for our country in war time. Our government, the Biden Administration
and Huchul weren't voted into office by We The People; the the Democrat Cabal has controlled elections for decades. They were furious when President Trump beat Hillary Clinton in an election rigged in her favor! President Trump will pay the price for that until the end of his days.
