Skip to comments.Michelle: GOP Would Curb Freedom of Speech, Religion
Posted on 10/28/2011 8:08:13 AM PDT by tcrlaf
In a chilling appraisal of President Obamas Republican opposition, First Lady Michelle Obama Thursday suggested a Republican victory in the 2012 presidential election would result in curbs on freedom of speech and religion.
Speaking at a fundraiser at a private residence in Tampa, Mrs. Obama noted the power of the president to appoint members of the Supreme Court.
She clearly indicated that a Republican would select justices who would attack basic First Amendment rights, saying, thats whats at stake in the election.
From the White House transcript:
Lets not forget about what it meant when my husband appointed those two brilliant Supreme Court justices (applause) and for the first time in history, our daughters and our sons watched three women take their seats on our nations highest court. (Applause.) But more importantly, lets not forget the impact those decisions will have on our lives for decades to come on our privacy and security, on whether we can speak freely, worship openly, and love whomever we choose. That is whats at stake here. (Applause.)

Lie,Lie, Lie again,Lie some more... Stoke the fear, stoke the fear, stoke the fear...
It's NOT like the media is going to them out on it, for as Michelle let slip in Africa, "The US Media is on our side..."
Michelle knows very well her husband’s two USSC appointees are Fascists.
This sounds like a Rev. Wright sermon.
Could she actually believe what she is saying? Could she actually believe that anyone would believe it?
She’s on to us, guys. She apparently has found out about the forced baptisms and arranged marriages.
These Obama’s are truly backward people ,maybe they some kind of disorder
Too late! Obama beat us to it! (sarc)
Mr. and Mrs. Obama are BOTH liars.
leftists always project on others what they are thinking or doing.
Michelle hates American almost as much as I hate her...almost :)
Wait a minute, those are left wing speech codes. Could Moochelle possibly be lying to us?
These political appointees are there for LIFE; and we have two bitches now that we can't get rid of in our lifetime.....re-interpreting the Constitution to fit their Agenda.
While Americans are not paying attention.
...everything that woman just said is bullshit!
And yet, this woman supports so-called “homosexual rights” which is a DIRECT assault on free speech and religion.
That's rich considering they had to take down the crosses where Obama spoke at a Catholic university.
This is from the people who are telling us we can’t keep the homosexual perverts out of (leadership positions in) our churches.
Do they even read their own press releases? Surely they have to be suffering major cognitive dissonance.
Did the Ward Heeler’s daughter take her daddy as well as her husband to the Rev Wright’s sermons?
This is the same person who wants the government to dictate what we are and aren’t allowed to eat.
Just the opposite, IMO. These people live in "opposite-ville". Everyone has "rights" except some, fat is the new thin, socialism is the new freedom, and truth is nowhere to be found.
The Libtards always accuse the rest of the population of what the Libtards are actually planning or doing. Always!
Im trying to figure out what any of our candidates have said that would in any way indicate wanting to LESSEN our freedoms in the 1st amendment. I mean, McCain isn’t running, so we don’t have any pro-campaign-finance folks. Conservatives want freedom of religion back, we aren’t the ones trying to remove all religion from the public square.
"The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system,
then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more. "
Imelda Obama inserts her sizable hoof in her mouth one more time.
Did she mention that we want to starve kids and old people?
Come on - stick to the script!
They can’t pay attention to the truth because the American NetWork Media, the virtually all the hard print Media and the teaching professions ration the truth to them, like the old fashion Roman Catholic Index. Can you imagine what you would know if there were no radio talk shows and no Internet?
ABCBSNBCNN, NYTimes, WaPOSt , etc., are the true 1% who try control the 99% and are about 60% successful.
“Im trying to figure out what any of our candidates have said that would in any way indicate wanting to LESSEN our freedoms in the 1st amendment.”
It doesn’t matter what our candidates have said...
The ONLY thing that matters is what the MSM is saying they have said. The MEME is what is important, not the facts now.
She lies as much as her Marxist husband does.Ironic she says this she is is telling people what they should eat....
“for the first time in history, our daughters and our sons watched three women take their seats on our nations highest court”
People’ll grab any opportunity to claim a milestone, won’t they? Let’s say Herman Cain gets elected; can we expect Michelle to celebrate “the first time in history” two black men have been president? No, that ship will have sailed, and she and others like her will ho-hum it, when not pretending it foretells the End of Days.
Hey mooooooochele calm down and eat a couple dozen donuts.
“on our privacy and security, on whether we can speak freely, worship openly, and love whomever we choose. That is whats at stake here”
Back-alley abortions, resegregated lunch counters, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!
I think the Democrats are doing fine on that front on their own.
The Obamas do not share my worldview. To them freedom of speech is flag burning and porn, while freedom of religion is homosexual clergy and Muslims practicing sharia law in Detroit. This is the result of Orwellian rhetoric taught in universities around the globe. Freedom means regulation in their world where the only acceptable religion is stateism, likewise the words “congress shall make no laws respecting...” is not a prohibition on jurisdictional creep, but that nothing is to be counted as worthy of respect, except the authority of the state. They attack ideas of liberty using the rhetoric of liberty to twist the meaning and pervert to their own tyrannical designs.
Yes, let’s not forget Obama’s record. Never, never forget, and bring him down.
Rule 1: Accuse your enemy of what you yourself are guilty.
“’leftists always project on others what they are thinking or doing’ ‘Alinsky Tactics 101’”
I don’t think it’s a tactic. Maybe sometimes, but more often I think it’s the genuine psychological definition of projection.
Golly 'Chelle, I can't remember the GOP proposing government imposed restrictions or "requirements" on TV and radio, or organizing mobs to disrupt free expression at Universities. Not that I can remember.
And the only religion I would support banning is the fake one, World Domination masquerading as "religion." The "Umma" one which shall remain nameless.
The copresident, aka sasquatch, is getting just a bit too feisty.
Scratch that. More like all of the time. But at the same time, they’re also suffering from delusion.
I am pleased that the hateful bitch wants to get into the fray. She is only a popular figure because she is First Lady. Anyone would hate her guts if she was just the employee in the next cubicle or the lady down the block.
I was at a LIONS Club meeting where one woman asked aloud why it wasn’t a violation of Separation of Church and State to let Evangelical Christians vote. Here’s the really scary part. She’s an elderly Jewish woman who was a lawyer.
I prefer to consider it the genuine evidence of a demonically controlled mind.
"Father of lies" and all of that . . .
Shut up, Aunt Ester.
I don’t know what I’d do if someone tried to keep me from calling Michelle Obama a big fat tub of lard.
I agree but given her cushy no-show 'job' with a hospital you wouldn't find her in the office too often.
I’m reminded of the recent videos by O’Keefe types circulating a fake petition on a college campus, asking students to sign it to show their support for restrictions on conservatives. Many agreed that ‘some people have too much free speech.’
Have you seen the Peter Schiff videos? He directly confronts the OWS protesters including a few who think they are mighty smart. He reduces them to literal silence. It was beautiful.
in the immortal words of Robert Bork:
“They painted a nightmare of fascist oppression, and attributed it to me.”
