More news to sadden the left: Michelle Obama announced that she will not run for President in 2020. I guess the duties of being the Forever First Lady must be too great a burden to take on another office. But don’t feel bad, Mrs. Obama, there are worthwhile things you can do besides being President. I’m certainly glad of that!
I suggest reading her full comments because they reveal so much of what’s wrong with the whole mindset of current “progressive” identity politics, from the notion that people should vote for candidates based on their race or gender (the left used to call that “racism” and “sexism”) to the idea that America needs to be “fundamentally transformed;” from the claim that Hillary Clinton was held to an “impossible standard” that no man would face (tell it to Michael Flynn, who lost his house for allegedly being less than truthful to FBI investigators, which it later turned out he wasn’t) to Mrs. Obama chastising women for not voting for Hillary because she was a woman and “the most qualified person running” (I could spend the rest of this post just listing arguments to refute that.)
Why do liberals condescendingly assume that women who disagreed that Hillary was the most qualified candidate were themselves not qualified to cast a carefully-considered vote for the candidate of their choice? The argument that women can’t be trusted to vote for the “right” candidate was discarded back in 1920, when America passed the 19th Amendment, granting women the right to vote. Resurrecting it in 2018 doesn’t seem very “progressive” to me.
But then, neither does resurrecting the same idiotic Marxist economic system that started Russia down the road to oppression, tyranny, starvation and ultimate collapse back in 1917. Yet just last week, the New York Times was wishing Karl Marx a happy birthday and declaring “You were right.” Michael Moore, who at last estimate had a net worth of $50 million, retweeted that article along with a few more “thoughts” on why socialism is so much better than capitalism (tell it to the Venezuelans.)
Note to young Bernie Sanders supporters: making the same dumb mistake over and over isn’t “progress.” It’s Einstein’s definition of “insanity.”
Incidentally, if you think I’m being too mean, just imagine what I could have done with Michael Moore’s quotes about rich people who take too big a slice of the pie.
