Michelle Obama 'outraged' over Nigeria kidnapped girls
Reuters ^ | May 10, 2014 | by Jeff Mason

Posted on 05/10/2014 8:26:46 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

U.S. first lady Michelle Obama took the rare step of delivering her husband President Barack Obama's weekly radio address on Saturday to express outrage over the kidnapping of some 200 girls in Nigeria last month.

"Like millions of people across the globe, my husband and I are outraged and heartbroken over the kidnapping of more than 200 Nigerian girls from their school dormitory in the middle of the night," Mrs. Obama said in the address.

"This unconscionable act was committed by a terrorist group determined to keep these girls from getting an education - grown men attempting to snuff out the aspirations of young girls."

Of course they don’t have the guts to blame it on Islam.

Trade her for the girls.

Even if she volunteered to take their place, they wouldn’t take the worthless pig; she’s not resellable.

michelle and all of her black leader cronies had to wait to be outraged about the kidnapping of those school girls. First, they had to band together to steal an NBA team. Priorities.

....outraged and heartbroken ....

Yeah....my ass has to butt cracks, too.

I can believe O&H with respect to "first time I'm proud of my country" or "all this for a damned flag" or "where in the hell was Obama on 9/11/2012 - really?" But this? Hell no. Not even for a heartbeat.

The kidnapping is horrible. However, that is what comes of schmoozing with muslim terrorists and failing to call them out. The O's are culpable!

would have liked to have seen just a smidgen of this outrage about Benghazi.

:: grown men attempting to snuff out the aspirations of young girls. ::

Really?

Well let me tell you something Chewbacca. Residence schools for young girls are “easy pickings” for the sex-slave trade. Denying these girls “education” is merely cover for terrorist groups whose intent was to generate money (or trade-in-arms) from the slave-sales of these girls.

Likely, they were pre-bought and have been shipped out in cargo containers throughout the world. They are gone.

Since it is not proper to criticize the family of the president, expect to see a lot more of this. Soon, the daughters will start giving daddy’s press conferences. Bo the dog will start explaining how Global Climate Change has caused him to change his daily walking schedule...

Couldn't help notice that during Benghazi she didn't post #Save American lives. After Benghazi she didn't post #Bring the killers to justice.

It hasn't dawned on her that some of the people she wants to save the Nigerian girls are the same kind of people that Obama/Hillary let be murdered at Benghazi.

I can easily agree with her. Now, perhaps she can have some equally tough words for the religion that fueled this atrocity.

I blame it on the video.

Had it not been for the video, this would not have happened.

It was the movie trailer on Youtube.

I am just surprised that MO calls them a terrorist group. Has Kerry and State declared them a terrorist group?

It’s a very sad story. These girls will have a bad fate. If they have not been sold already, they will be sold into slavery or prostitution.

When you see what happens in some parts of the world, you would think that liberals would thank their lucky stars to be in America. In America, the liberal women bitch about glass ceilings and what they see as an oppressive patriarchal society. Compared to the fate of these kidnapped girls, liberal females in westernized countries have no complaints at all, in my opinion.

Michelle and Barack Hussein Obama could care less about those doomed young girls....and, boys, too!!! The news about these killings and kidnappings was out of Nigeria for at least two weeks before the Obamas uttered a word. Had to check politically to see what would go down with their low information, idiot sheeple that follow these grifters, shysters and thugs!!! Sad days for America...with thes two low lifes!!!

This is just another cause celebre to people like her ilk to express their faux concern.

Her hubby has been schmoozing up to the Islamic slime bags for years prior to this. Literally millions have been maimed and killed in the meantime while we try to get them to love us.

This is like the wife of Boeing’s CEO going on TV and saying she wished somekne would make a certain type of aircraft.

I may disagree with Obama on what to do but as president, he has the power to do something. He can direct, if not coordinate, action.

Going on TV and begging someone do something when you have the power to do something reeks of campaigning. He’s literally playing politics over the rape and imprisonment of hundreds of girls.

The man is the lowest of the low.

Have you seen Hillary’s “tweet”?

While Americans celebrate tearing asunder a female developing fetus, Her Heinous continues to say that access to education is a basic right for females everywhere...

How many US female babies have now been denied that “basic right” through the holocaust of abortion?

She doesn’t seem to notice that they are in for rape, torture, and murder, and will never see their families again. No, they’ve been deprived of a young women’s right to attend school and get an education.

And I’ll bet they aren’t being given any kale or spinach to eat, either.

Horrible!

I yearn for the day that “any generic Dhimmicrat” provides in a national debate and in the national media, the DETAILED explanation of the abortion process.

All it takes is one media-type to present the question, “What happens during an abortion, specifically?”

Good point.

I think the liberals gloss over the details of abortion, by saying it’s a matter of “women’s health” and other such descriptions.

I would love to ask the liberals also, why is it that pregnant women talk about their “baby”? Any pregnant woman I have ever known describes her fetus as a “baby”.

I’m sorry for those girls, but we have our own problems here at home. Another thing: This country has poured billions into African countries including Nigeria, but they still can’t take care of themselves. It’s high time we shut off the tap and use this resources to take care of ourselves. Let Nigeria deal with its own problems.

“the most wonderful sound in the world is the call to prayer thruout the world of Islam”

Here is his actual quote:

‘Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”’

I remembered his exact word, ‘prettiest’, because it sounds so effete.

Scientifically, when the sperm interacts with the egg, only one outcome is defined, (deo volente).

Dogs can’t “hump a cat” and have some strange “body-snatchers” result. Likewise with humans. The result of human sperm and human ovarium results in human life. On the first division of the fetal cells, God’s intent is evident.

The Dhimmicrats should be “nailed-to-the-wall” at every opportunity we have to explain the whole process of abortion and “choice”. Unfortunately, the media avoids the real questions.
