Details of The Michelle Obama ‘Whitey’ Tape
NationalEconomist.com ^

Posted on 06/04/2008 6:12:06 AM PDT by drbasketball

It sounds worse than I imagined....For about 30 minutes, Michelle Obama launched into a rant about the evils of America, and how America is to blame for the problems of Africa. Michelle personally blamed President Clinton for the deaths of millions of Africans and said America is responsible for the genocide of the Tutsis and other ethnic groups. She then launched into an attack on “whitey”, and talked about solutions to black on black crime in the realm of diverting those actions onto white America. Her rant was fueled by the crowd: they reacted strongly to what she said, so she got more passionate and enraged, and that’s when she completely loses it and says things that have made the mouths drop of everyone who’s seen this...

Think he’d divorce her just to become President? Maybe if he thought it would help him.

I'm skeptical as well. As Warner Wolf would say, let's go to the videotape!

It’s about time to release this thing. It’s getting old hearing about it and not seeing proof.

We keep hearing about this tape, but where is it? If it really exists, isn’t it time it went public?

There’s starting to be more meat on the bones of this story.
The tape supposedly was for sale on Trinity’s web site.
If true, there has to be more than 1 copy floating around.

If this is tape exists and is true, Michelle may have to lose more weight, as it’s pretty crowded now under that bus.

No link no tape.

The article cites the source of the DVD as being sold on the Trinity web site until a few months ago. Must be a number of copies out there. I would bet that this issue is the real deal.

The “tape” is a DVD that Trinity United sold on its website, and possibly offered free for download up until March 2008

Hard to believe that it was sold on DVD and freely downloaded, but now there are no copies.

If true, it would almost certainly be fatal to his ambition to be president. It would also be a wake up call to white America. Here is what you get for affirmative action.

I guess she’s bitter because she got an Ivy League degree and quarter-mill job she didn’t and could never honestly earn, so she takes refuge in racism and hatred.

In the last description she was talking about hurricane Katrina but this is before Katrina. And then there was Farrakhan, now its Farrakan’s wife but where’s Farrakhan’s wife in this description? And then there was “why’d he?” and “whitey”. I hope it’s true, but I’m not buying it, too many inconsistencies, I think people are just making stuff up.

If you watch the videos of her at campaign appearances, she really does seem to feed off the crowd but, for something like this to be true, it would mean Michelle Obama is completely devoid of any intelligence or common sense. She would have to be below the idiot level of even John Conyers' wife. It just doesn't seem anybody could be that dumb.

The Democrats and their operatives--including the so-called "journalists" of the "Mainstream Newsmedia"--will excuse, cover up, explain, rationalize, disinform, pander, and mislead--but nothing will outrage them.

If calls for God to damn America did not outrage or alarm Democrats and their operatives--nothing will.

The Democrat response to all this has revealed an anti-Americanism so profound as to herald a revolution--a revolution that is Marxist, Radical, and essentially Stalinist.

Sounds like, if there is a tape at all, it's not that bad. But with a week of hype, filled with growing expectations and third-order opinions (Let me tell you about what someone else said about something they read somewhere), any tape will be greeted with a huge unthinking flood of pent up emotion and backtracking justifications.

It will be a great flash in the pan, but will serve some transient purpose and be forgotten once that purpose is served, only to be referenced if at all not by its content, but by echoes of its prerevelation expectations.

American domestic propaganda at its best.

Wouldn't be hard to believe that there are only a few copies, "in the wild". Who in their right mind would be interested in the rantings of the wife of an obscure Illinois state senator's wife? Other than her mother?

Your life and family don't get the full monty proctological examine until you run for president.

How would this tape be any different than all the other racist moves the Obama's have made during this campain?

If Dems would and could overlook the antics of Billary, then what do they care if their new nominee is a racist?

The only “details” about the tape I want.

1) When is it going to play?
2) Where can I see it?

Until those two minor ‘details’ are filled in the rest is just so much dancing without the music.

Probably true. The MSM has handily packaged and handed us Obama. He’s their “product.” The Obamas spent 20 years actively attending a virulently racist “church.” Mrs. Obama’s activist militant worldview is well documented. The reported video has generated considerable buzz. It’s easily debunked (or authenticated) by simply asking the Mrs. Obama the right questions, yet none in the MSM will do so. Everybody is trying to ignore the elephant in the room. In my book, that’s known as a “clue.”

Anyone can make up a story, but this does seem to have a lot of details that have a ring of truth to them. I’m extremely surprised that Sean Hannity denies having the tape, given the fact that he and people associated with him have been doing opposition research on Obama for at least a year. Hopefully it is a Clintonoid denial, “Ah do not have a copy of that tape of,...Mrs. Obama.” Or maybe it’s not a tape, it’s a file? Or a DVD?

I’ll be extremely disappointed if the recording doesn’t surface. People always say there couldn’t be conspiracies or cover ups because so many people would have to keep quiet. But I can imagine Obama’s church could circle the wagons like this. It isn’t like the average person would download it for entertainment. Only a political pundit or a true dyed in the wool whitey hater would download it.

Here what the other fr tread contains:

“June 4, 2008
Details of The Michelle Obama ‘Whitey’ Tape
Filed under: Barack Obama — Robert Wegner @ 9:02 am
Details are emerging on the Michelle Obama “Whitey” tape. It sounds worse than I imagined.

The tape was apparently filmed between June 26th - July 1st 2004 in Chicago, IL at the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition Conference at Trinity United Church: specifically the Women’s Event.

Michelle Obama appeared as a panelist alongside Mrs. Khadijah Farrakhan and Mrs. James Meeks.

Bill Clinton spoke during the Conference, as did Bill Cosby and other speakers, but not at the panel Michelle attended.

Nevertheless Michelle Obama referenced Bill Clinton in her rant.

According to Hill Buzz:

For about 30 minutes, Michelle Obama launched into a rant about the evils of America, and how America is to blame for the problems of Africa. Michelle personally blamed President Clinton for the deaths of millions of Africans and said America is responsible for the genocide of the Tutsis and other ethnic groups. She then launched into an attack on “whitey”, and talked about solutions to black on black crime in the realm of diverting those actions onto white America. Her rant was fueled by the crowd: they reacted strongly to what she said, so she got more passionate and enraged, and that’s when she completely loses it and says things that have made the mouths drop of everyone who’s seen this.

Apparently the tape has been stting in plain sight. A DVD version was sold by Trinity United Church up until recent months when the web site had a complete do over..

Michelle’s rant happened just one month before the 2004 Democratic Convention, when Barack Obama delivered the keynote address.”

“I hope it’s true, but I’m not buying it, too many inconsistencies, I think people are just making stuff up.”

Yup. And the details get juicier day by day. Reminds me of an Andy Griffith episode where Aunt Bee sees Barney get a paper cut on his finger. By the time the story made it`s rounds, Barney had killed himself with an accidental self-inflicted gun shot.
