    Michelle Obama: “What the President is doing is patently false, morally wrong, and yes, racist”

    No matter how you slice it, it’s a complete fabrication and a bad look, fake concerned face and all. And they know it.

    And I was just start to miss the eight years of the Obama administration where everyone was a Racist™…

    Instead of trotting out former President Obama, who was arguably one of THE most divisive presidents in American history, Democrats filmed former First Lady Michelle Obama spearing Trump on his handling of riots driven by Black Lives Matter and antifa. Naturally, she blamed Trump and called him a racist.

    Full text of clip:

    “They’re stoking fears about black and brown Americans, lying about how minorities will destroy the suburbs, whipping up violence and intimidation, and they’re pinning it all on what’s been an overwhelmingly peaceful movement for racial solidarity, it’s true. Research backs it up. Only a tiny fraction of demonstrations have had any violence at all. So what the president is doing is once again patently false, it’s morally wrong, and yes, it is racist. But that doesn’t mean it won’t work. Because this is a difficult time, a confusing time, and when people hear these lies and crazy conspiracies repeated over and over again, they don’t know what to think. With everything going on in their lives, they don’t have time to fact check falsehoods being spread throughout the internet and even reasonable people might get scared. And the one thing this president is really, really good at, is using fear and confusion, and spreading lies to win.”

    The second part is arguably worse than calling Trump a racist. She suggests everyone is too dumb and busy to separate fact from fiction. And it’s that exact belief that cost Democrats in 2016 and will cost them again. Not to mention her suggestion that a president who *just* told the public not to be afraid of the coronavirus wields fear to garner power.

    No matter how you slice it, it’s a complete fabrication and a bad look, fake concerned face and all. And they know it.

    We’ve covered the riots, destruction, and violence at great length. You can find that coverage here and here.

    In a more general, but still contemporary vein, I thought the following, multi-signatory, open and public letter, hosted by the National Association of Scholars and sent to the Pulitzer Prize Board might take some of the wind out of the former First Lady’s very propped up and dysfunctional sails. A forthcoming reply to the NAS by the Board would be decent and well-deserved.

    https://www.nas.org/blogs/article/pulitzer-board-must-revoke-nikole-hannah-jones-prize

    “The National Association of Scholars has agreed to host this public letter to the Pulitzer Prize Board[,]” a brief synopsis states. “The letter calls on the Board to rescind the prize it awarded to Nikole Hannah-Jones earlier this year. I am one of the 21 signatories….”

    —Peter Wood, President, National Association of Scholars

    An overview of the issues concerning the many highly contested claims, groundless assertions, and certifiably false and misleading thesis overall that go to make so much of The 1619 Project is found here —

    — in a piece posted yesterday and authored by Stanley Kurtz, a noted social anthropologist, serious Critical Theory critic, and signatory of the Letter to the Pulitzer Board.

    It’s a challenging time, to say the least, for die-hard Western Civ fans like so many of us, myself included. Maybe the quite depressing moniker of a “post-fact world” was premature, and the worthwhile fight endures. Time will tell.

    Anyway, The Pulitzer Board seems to be going the way of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, granter of its namesake’s Peace Prize, in recent years: far adrift from its founder’s vision. We can always hope, insofar as journalism is concerned, for an honorable legacy. Anticipating it seems quite a bit harder these days.

    Are we going to have to live from now on with this piece of black trash haranguing the the whole nation? Somebody ought to do something. It’s time to take out the filthy trash.
