I received this in an email this afternoon.......and it positively made my blood boil.
"This one may turn your stomach........
Obama's Wife as Seen by Deaf People
Obama and his wife were attending the 9/11 Memorial Ceremony and watched as the Color Guard folded the flag into a triangular shape, according to custom. A video camera caught the two from the sidelines.
Obama's wife leaned over and said to him, " All this for a damn flag ?" Obama turned to her, smiled smugly and nodded his head in agreement.
How do we know what was said? The video was presented for translation to a lip reading instructor at The River School, a Washington D.C. school for the deaf.
The video is shown at normal speed, 3/4 speed, and 1/2 speed with no banners obstructing her lips. Click here to view for yourself:
Watch closely...the translation is dead on
The email then goes on to say:
"One term please!! For all who served in the military, and for all who died or were wounded for "a damn flag" as Michelle called it, so they would be free to get all the benefits they get, their Ivy League educations and her husband elected as President of the best country on Earth... Shame on her and Obama... for their attitude toward "a damn flag"."
I'll personally go further. That vile bitch has NO business being in my country, let alone in my White House. Damn her to Hell.....and that smug, gay, Socialist a**hole standing next to her.
I disagree! I think these lipreaders are wrong. I have watched this many times and agree with another group of lipreaders that have said she says, “______ ______ the way they fold THAT flag.” (The spaces are the words she says while her mouth is behind the pole.)
I don’t see the word “damn” at all. And I don’t think she would say something like that in public-—she knows the camera is on her. I think that she is not impressed with the folding of the flag. If you watch them you will see that it is an amateur job—they’re not like the perfect ones you see at military funerals. And she is pointing this out to Barack, surprised at what a ordinary job they are doing.
9/11 10th Anniversary Memorial in New York! You know, nothing important.
Your a grand old flag, your a high flying flag and us...........
Don’t get between The Wookie and her trip to BergdrfGoodman....
The Obamas are the last people to care to discern between the holy and the profane. How much less could they care about a flag-folder whose performance may have been less than polished?
Now if she *were* critiquing "the way they fold THAT flag", put that in context with 1) the Obamas well-established hatred of our hallowed traditions, places, and laws, and 2) their body language during the exchange.
If they had been disappointed at a lack of reverence toward the flag, Barack would have nodded in solemn agreement, not with that overt smug look of "yeah, typical.."
However, this coming from the Obamas, a disgust over "the way they fold THAT flag" would make sense in this context:
That Michelle was actually appalled by the reverence shown to that weary flag, as if the ragged thing should have been balled up and pitched in a dumpster (or given to Bill Ayers to defile).
Thus, there is probably no need for debate over her exact words, because "the way they fold THAT flag" and "all this for a damn flag" ultimately say the same thing, which is "F- these Americans and their stupid flag, when's the lobster and wagu being served?"
I watched the video Ezekiel posted - shameful to say the least.
I don’t believe they have a drop of red American blood in them, no matter where they were born.
From looking at her face, she obviously has contempt for what the American flag symbolizes in general — believes at her core that it’s a waste of time and money to take such care and ceremony with this tattered one in particular.
