Michelle Obama: Baiting the “birthers” and leveling charges of homophobia
Annuit Coeptis - news-political.com ^ | April, 6 2010 | NEPAConservative

Posted on 04/07/2010 8:02:26 AM PDT by An American!

So today we have a recording released on YouTube where Michelle Obama is making reference to Barack’s HOMELAND of Kenya. Where did this video come from and why was it released? This was recorded in front of LGBT Delegate Luncheon in August of 2008. So why now? Be careful, birthers, don’t let common sense and facts get in your way when addressing Obama’s qualifications, they’re just looking for a reason sit back an mock you. You can’t touch this.

What’s even more interesting in the video is how she insinuates that everyone that has AIDS is gay.

Warning about how unusual this is to have been released now. This administration is very sneaky. Lots of images of Michelle with kids, garden, Easter...all feel good stuff and then let this out. Strategy maybe is so it can be discussed and dismissed before the election cycle gets in full swing. Speech is on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLDHDfPNBME

I have a sneaking suspicion that there is an ever increasing number of Democrats who wouldn’t mind having a peek at Obama’s long form birth certificate.

It isn't a phobia. It is profound disgust, more like homonausea.

I heard Glenn Beck offer a similar take yesterday.

I don’t think this administration is that clever. Rather, I think it shows their arrogance towards critics that they can’t be touched.

Also Glenn Beck talked about this same viewpoint:
MICHELLE OBAMA: Surrounding HIV testing which is still plaguing so many of our communities, which you all know a lot of that is due to homophobia. Barack has led by example. When we took our trip to Africa and visited his home country in Kenya, we took a public HIV test.

GLENN: Stop. Stop.

PAT: So obvious.

GLENN: When we ‑‑ and we visited his home country in Kenya. Okay. Really? Really? Are we this stupid? Really? "Oh, my goodness, she just verified!" Did she now? May I ask this question: What is it that they're trying to do right now? What is it they are trying to do? Every bit of their action is poke, poke, poke, make them extremists, poke them some more. Every bit of it! Uh‑huh. Mmm‑hmmm.

Full dialog can be found at http://www.glennbeck.com/content/articles/article/198/38784/

A lot is being “leaked” right now. But are all he leaks the truth. The game plan could be to put out truthful dirt like the MO video before the elections but pile on even more outlandish tales in hopes that will diminish the fallout.

According to Glenn Beck, you’re a lunatic if you believe any of this birther stuff. Even though the supreme law of the land requires the President to be a Natural Born Citizen to be eligible for the job.

He was on a rant yesterday on his radio program demonizing anyone who questions Ogabe’s legitimacy.

I’m done with this fraud.......Beck and Ogabe.

I kinda think that Michelle is very sensitive about homosexual issues...remembering the picture of her overseeing uhbama when he had a bunch of homosexual men at the WH for some homosex-celebration of who guys do sex together or whatever. She was really watching him...intently. And it sent a strong message out.

As if AIDS is just a gay (sic) disease... AIDS is caused by a virus, not by a genetic defect or by a lifestyle.

Sure. And drunkenness is caused by the way the body processes alcohol, not by drinking too much. /sarc

“homophobia”, literally, an irrational fear of sameness.

It isn’t a fear, it isn’t irrational, and we’re not bothered by sameness at all.

It’s a rational disgust at a perversion.

There’s a reason that every mention of homosexuality in the bible is in close proximity to references of beastiality.

I heard this same argument on a radio show this morning and I frankly don't understand it. It sounds to me as though IF the WH released it (and I don't have any thoughts yet on who released it), then they also released the talking points on how conservatives are to treat it. Be afraid of it, suspect why it's coming out now, don't blow it out of proportion so that you will look nuts. Why should we look on the fringe about this? It's Michelle and her husband who ARE way over the line on support and love of their country (the USA). His home country? Kenya? Happy that they were required to take an AIDS test? Maybe they knew it was going to come out anyway and released it along with talking points to tell us to be careful with it to dilute it because we're the ones with a more powerful alternate media.

Like anything, yes, we should handle it with care and discretion. But we should point out what it tells us about the current residents of the WH.

I know 4 HIV positive people. All 4 are gay males. All 4 contracted it by engaging in behavior that almost guaranteed they would become infected. All 4 are on meds paid for at least in part by the tax payer. I smoke and the system says it should not pay for any illnesses I contract because I chose to smoke. PLEASE.

It is one hell of a picture. She is in the background, watching him as he is embraced with another guy in one wierd moment. It almost looks as if he is about to engage in a kiss. Pic was taken at WH...guess it could be found in thread that was run regarding his welcoming the homosexuals there.

I think that is a bit much.

Nobody made a video in 2008 preparing for an anti-tea party strategy in 2010, regardless of the release date of the video.

I don’t think anyone would agree that the video does anything positive for the administration or Michelle. Well, except for this author!

I have no problem believing that Kenya is where Bummer’s heart is. This is still bizarre as presidents go. When did any other one talk about their “HOME LAND” of Ireland, Scotland, Britain, or whatever?

This statement by Beck was interesting: GLENN: Okay? If you have ‑‑ if you're playing to your base and you are trying to paint people as crazy, as tea partygoers, as hateful, as people you just can't be around and you are trying to rally your base around you, wouldn't one of the best things that you could do is go on the Birther thing? Let me just give you the poll numbers on it. With independents, 83‑8. Was he born in America? 83% of independents say yes. 8% say no. Among adults between 45 and 59, 82 to 8. In the Midwest? 90‑6. In the midwest, not the Northeast. In the Midwest ‑‑ think Ohio ‑‑ 90‑6. They have nothing that polls this well, nothing. Is he an American? Yes. The majority says overwhelmingly yes. So if you want to make them into moon landing people, what's the most effective sign that you could carry at a tea party? I mean, if you are thinking like the Obama administration, he was born in Kenya. It's the most effective sign to paint you into a nut job that you can carry. Why is this tape being released now? They need you to be perceived as a nut job! parsy, who says Beck seems convinced its a set up

I honestly believe the poser is a queer. Here's why...

In college at Columbia he lived with a Paki (shared an apartment) whom he met socially. They lived way across town from where he went to school and there's a picture of them siting "ThisClose" on a couch. The pic shows two queers. Now, the former "room-mate" never married and lives in Seattle where he is involved in "community theater".

Add to this the truly startling fact that, in spite of his wild celebrity, not one single woman has come forward to say that she dated or slept with him...not one. Not a single woman from HS, Occidental College, Columbia, Harvard, his stint in corporate America. I find it impossible to believe that every woman he might have dated has decided not to grab her fifteen minutes. Nope, the one and only woman ever associated with him is his wife, the ultimate beard.

Hone it like a laser birthers:

Addressed to Hussein, could you release the legal document that shows what hospital you were born in? I want to raise and donate a million dollars to that hospital's pediatric unit. With all the "nutjobs" and "birthers" out there I need the verification because of all the "lies" they have spread. I can only trust you Mr President! Will you release the document?

Now that is interesting.

I had never really noticed there are no exes. No flames...no stories. Hmm. When did he start dating Michelle?

To be fair, I never remembered any women folk coming forward for W either. Ofcourse, they were crawling out of the woodwork for Clinton...

Not to defend the guy, I think he could very well have tendencies. But, in all honesty, he doesn't strike me as being sexual at all. He seems very a-sexual.

Obama knows Fox News and the rest of the media are not allowed to question the mountain of circumstantial evidence showing there are huge questions of Obama’s nationality.

Obama is poking at Glenn Beck and the others then sitting back laughing as Beck defends him.

MO knows he was gay. I think she knows he is still gay. I think she overlooks it now, all she cares about is her cooks, makeup artists, clothes, that’s good enough, she looks the other way. There is not a doubt in my mind he was gay for most of his life and is now in the closet.

Furthermore - In his 1789 article, Ramsay first explained who the “original citizens” were and then defined the “natural born citizens” as the children born in the country to citizen parents.

Of course this distracts from the fact that his problem is right out in the open, and he acknowledged it himself.

He may well be a native born citizen (though there are the obvious alarm bells) but he is not natural born. His dad is a foreign citizen. Thats not controversial, its not even in question. But no one dared to bring it up and no one dared to make it an issue. With DNC control of congress there will be nothing done from there as long as he keeps his handlers happy, and I doubt even the Supreme Court would act on it.

He isn’t legally president, but everyone has agreed to pretend that he is.
