Scarborough Says 'Asinine' Kansans Concerned About Michelle Obama's HS Graduation Visit Sh

Shut up, Joe Scarborough explained. That was the Morning Joe host's advice today to people in Topeka, Kansas who are concerned that First Lady Michelle Obama's visit to the city's joint high school graduation ceremony will limit seating for family members and take the spotlight off the graduates themselves.

The man who makes his living offering his opinions and expressing his concerns instructed Kansans to "keep those concerns to yourself." Adding insult to injury, Scarborough called the concerned Kansans "asinine." View the video after the jump.

Guess a lot of us are okay to say what we want concerning the disruption in Topeka. But you Kansans apparently need to STFU and bow down to the flotus. Er, maybe not. Hey Joe. How about you STFU. I read somewhere this asshat is possibly going to jump in to the presidential race. WHA.........

Why would ANYONE want a self absorbed, tax spending witch to speak at an event that’s SUPPOSED to be about the kids?

LOL! Of course. We ain’t learnt our lesson yet so joe has to remind us to shut up and sit down. Diversity Avenue and PC Boulevard are still one way streets and we’re still driving against traffic. Guess I’ll never learn. Dang the luck.

Stay away from it Michelle, it’s not your day

Flyover country doesn’t count unless you’re running for office and then sometimes you’ll show up and smile for the peons. FWIW, Obama never campaigned in WV. Whoever ran his campaign knew that would be a waste of time and money. You can say you want about WV but we had the Obamaloon pegged from the git go.

It is probably not mentioned that Brown vs the Topeka State Board (USD 501) was a case whose corrections impacted the district in a manner where they were not able to close out the case until 1996. People of all races in that district have had a circus of attention for so long that this is just more piling on of media and wanna-be people.

“Keep those concerns to yourself...”

Gosh, I hate this guy. The kids (and parents) went through 12+ years of schooling so they can graduate. It’s THEIR graduation not a Michelle platform for whatever she spews. If it was me... I’d stay home. I’d celebrate by going out for dinner or holding a small gathering at home.

OK grads, when the Wookie rises to speak, stand up and turn your back to her-—ALL OF YOU. That action would make a resounding statement that our nation does not recognize our ruling class as ROYALTY.

DO IT!! FEAR NOT!!

“Scarborough called the concerned Kansans “asinine.””

Hey Scarborough — The 28-year-old female staff member (Lori Klausutis) found dead in your Fort Walton Beach, Florida office is asinine. Have you ever answered all the questions about her death?

Lori Klausutis
Lori Klausutis
Lori Klausutis

Does her name haunt you Joe?

Here’s what Joe doesn’t know:

In the media, any resistance to Michelle’s appearance is assumed to be by red necked racist hicks in Kansas.

Well I’ve got news for them: USD501 is one of the most ‘diverse’ districts in Kansas. IOW, the majority of the district are ‘Obama’s People’...either by race, or by union membership, or by working in gubmint (we are the stat capital).

So no, these liberal kids and families aren’t the red neck kids from some bad movie. That’s not why they oppose. They oppose because they have been mugged by reality - Their graduation...their event...is being co-opted by the liberal machine, so Michelle can get a 10 second clip on the evening news, telling us how bad whitey is, how far we’ve come, and how much it will cost us to finally rid the world of the scourge of whitey’s guilt.

There are three major high schools, and one very small one, in the district. For decades, each has had their own graduation, with their own school colors, own valedictorian speech, and unlimited seating.

Now, for reason other than being used as a political pawn, there will be one giant graduation. My guestimate is it will take at least 4 hours, by the time everyone is walked through an x-ray, 800 names are read off, Moochelle scolds whitey, and each school principal or valedictorian gives some sort of statement to ‘personalize’ the event to each school.

And grandma can’t come - not enough room. And besides, the high dollar invitations you sent to grandma and all the relatives are bogus anyway, since the time has been changed.

Wouldn’t it be easier on everyone...if Michelle didn’t show up. She can come later that day and give a speech if she wants. Problem solved. But no - she has to have the kids in cap and gown as a prop for this political theater...to demonstrate how ‘diverse’ the district has become.

And we will all pretend to not notice the 5a high school just outside the city limits, where whitey has fled to, and sends their kids to school.

Hey Joe, “Shut up” followed by an ad homonym attack is not a reasoned argument or differing opinion.

It isn’t any of his business, but that doesn’t matter to someone who makes his living out of taking current events and creating controversy about them. He is like a media ‘ambulance chaser’.
I watched about 10 minutes of a Scarboro show once. That was enough. I haven’t watched it since. I wouldn’t know about this except for people telling me about it.

It would be nice if some parents could get together and set up another venue for honoring and celebrating their children’s graduation. Sure, they wouldn’t have the official diplomas to pass out, but the event would be more meaningful than having their children participate in Michelle’s political circus. Plus, they won’t have to sit respectfully as they listen to her planned diatribe against America.

“.. they wouldn’t have the official diplomas to pass out”.

Actually, a lot of high schools mail the real diplomas. The ones passed out are blank and for show anyway. Even when I graduated (our size class was 98), the rolled up ones were blank. The real ones came in the mail a day or two later.

Since this year is the 60th anniversary of Brown vs the Board of Education one might speculate that the White House contacted the demorats on the Topeka scool board and suggested the consolidated ceremony for the purpose of a staged propaganda event.

Is Michelle going to tell the kids how to get disbarred?.

If the protests were political in nature, Scarborough might have a glimmer of a point. But the objections are due to far more practical concerns, and those should be addressed before even delving into appropriateness, et. al.
