Did Michelle Obama heckler use coded racial words? Or not?
US News and World Report's DC Decoder ^ | June 6, 2013 | Peter Grier

The fallout from Michelle Obama’s heckling incident continued Thursday, as some defenders of the first lady charge that the heckler used coded racial language, and in general spoke from a perspective of “white privilege.”

These folks point to a comment protester Ellen Sturtz made after she interrupted the first lady during a fundraiser and challenged President Obama to fulfill a campaign promise and sign an order banning federal contractors from discriminating against gays and lesbians.

Rather than speak over Ms. Sturtz, Mrs. Obama left the podium and confronted the heckler in person, saying she’d leave if the heckling didn’t stop.

“She came right down in my face. I was taken aback,” said Sturtz after the incident.

What, did Sturtz think the first lady was just going to let the interruption go on, or hand her the mike?

Sturtz’s description of the encounter was a “breathtaking bit of projection and entitlement that also tiptoed dangerously close to the ‘angry black woman’ stereotype that Mrs. Obama has been dogged by for years,” writes Anna Holmes, founding editor of the feminist blog “Jezebel,” in a Time Magazine column....

From this, we learn that black beats gay.

We also know that Muslim beats gay (Muslims bash gays in London and it isn’t reported or is covered up).

All three beat feminist.

I guess the question is, who wins when you have black vs. Muslim??

So the heckler gets in someone’s face with her interrupting, then is “take aback” by the speaker getting in her face? Lady you started the aggression. I have no love at all for Michele Obama, but if you want to dish it out, be prepared for return fire.

Yeah, right. Surrounded by all her secret servants, Moochelle was so brave and poised. I was waiting for it to turn out like that kindergarten graduation.

Both women were pathetic.

And at “Black Enterprise,” columnist Janell Hazelwood writes that “In 2014, that tired prevalent notion that any time a black woman speaks up – and it’s not to coddle, coo or sweet talk – she’s ‘angry’ or ‘aggressive’ is getting old.”

these people lean so far forward they're already a year ahead of the rest of us.

An angry Moochelle in your face beats just about anything in terms of intimidation.

I thought the heckler was speaking from GAY privilege

They are, after all, the most protected and promoted political group in American these days.

Sturtz is fortunate that Big Moosie didn’t throw a half-nelson on her the way she did Queen Elizabeth.

I can’t help thinking about how Laura Bush would have handled a similar situation. Would she have “gotten in the women’s face”, or would she have handled it in a polite and dignified manner? I think we all know the answer.

Black Christian vs Muslim, you mean? That's a good question. Black Christians will be the last cultural swing voters, so to speak.

Since Democrat-labeled “code racial words” now include “and,” “but”, and “the,” I would assume so.

Actually, I'm re-thinking my prior post. There have been several black actors who made mildly anti-gay statements and were sent to PC Re-Education Camp as a result. So perhaps black doesn't beat gay in PC rock-paper-scissors.

Any objections to the Obamas are racist. If you disagree with that statement you’re racist. If you defend yourself from the racism charges in the two previous sentences you’re racist. The fact that you haven’t already given the computer, tablet, or smart phone you’re reading this on to a minority suggests you’re racist.

May I suggest a new game based on your post to replace Rock Paper Scissors... Gay Muslim Black...Muslim enslaves Black, Black beats Gay, Gay negates Muslim.

[...] and in general spoke from a perspective of “white privilege.”

So now, you can be called a racist even when not using racial epithets. It's enough to "speak from a perspective of white privilege," which is much more difficult to objectively define.

Right, some here are missing the point because they don’t like the heckler or Obama.

The heckler didn’t say anything racial and the article is trying to spin it into racism.

There is a BIG issue here with the “white privilege” crap used in this article. White privilege is being used to justify racism against whites, the schools are teaching kids that action against whites doesn’t count as racism. Dangerous territory.

She would have been told to "talk to the hand" and it would have been over.

Yep. They ‘poison the well’ from the start by making the charge, then act like they just commented on the weather.
There’s no reasoning with most Democrats. They don’t know how to argue. More importantly, they don’t care.

You're absolutely correct, and what is really scary is that Leftists are now really coming out of the closet with this white privilege/white guilt mindset (see MSNBC and mainstream newspapers) because they believe America has passed a tipping point. The Left thinks that they have so ingrained this mindset into successive generations that it's now become the cultural zeitgeist. They also believe that America's increasingly non-white demographics are willing to accept the white privilege narrative as truth. Sadly, the Left is likely right.

“In 2014, that tired prevalent notion that any time a black woman speaks up – and it’s not to coddle, coo or sweet talk – she’s ‘angry’ or ‘aggressive’ is getting old.”

From my perspective, that exact same judgement is made of us white chicks.
