Michelle Obama Would Like Students to Monitor Family Members for Racial Insensitivity
The Blaze ^ | May. 19, 2014 | Pete Kasperowicz

Posted on 05/19/2014 2:48:34 PM PDT by kingattax

First lady Michelle Obama is encouraging students to monitor their older relatives, friends and co-workers for any racially insensitive comments they might make, and to challenge those comments whenever they’re made.

The first lady spoke on Friday to graduating high school students in Topeka, Kansas, and in remarks released over the weekend, Obama said students need to police family and friends because federal laws can only go so far in stopping racism.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

First the health care thing and now this. Why are these fascists always trying to horn in on our family holidays and interject politics?

Off-color means a little dirty, having noting to do with race, stereotypes, or bigotry. “Off-colored” means nothing, and I doubt it’s what she said.

In my family it would have been tough because my grandfather told jokes about Christians but they were friendly jokes because we are a very mixed family with Catholic to Baptist and everything in between.

Whatever they are, they’re not a call for reporting racist family members. I think the better narrative is that she’s making these comments while sending her kids to schools that are almost all white.

The nazis didn’t start out asking the kids to inform on their parents either. They encouraged the kids to take part in family conversations and the school counselors and staff would get the info from the kids.

I agree with her. It’s about time! If blacks would monitor hateful and racist comments every time someone in the hood begins talking ill of a white person, there would probably be a lot less of the knockout game going on.

youre really confused.

the headline didn’t say that she told kids to “rat out their parents.”

the headline is accurate. she told kids to verbally confront any racist remark they heard in their family.

that meets the criteria for “monitoring”.

Her comments are well thought out propaganda for purpose of tightening the political correctness noose around our necks. Her propagandist speech writer crafted the words in just a way so people like you could ggive them the benifit of the doubt. These people, this regime, NEVER LETS AN OPPORTUNITY GO TO WASTE.

And yeah, I said noose.

Neither. My disdain for all things liberal are so well documented that I’ll probably be one of the first sent to the camps. The story all day is that the Mooch wants kids to rat out their parents. Using “monitor” in the headline implies monitoring for some purpose. Most Freepers are reading that way.

I respectfully disagree with the narrative. I don’t think that’s what she said. I’m positive that’s what she wants to have happen. Maybe this is a dog whistle of some kind.

Michelle the Chewbacca is pushing the final phase of the Common Core, that is for young people to rat on their parents, grandparents and other older relatives.

Common Core forcing Marxism/Nazism on America’s children
By Sher Zieve

Excerpt:

The comparison of Nazism and Common Core (CC) are uncanny.

One such comparison is that Nazism had Leaders and Master Teachers in the National Socialists Teachers League that visited schools and kept data files on Teachers. The Obama Administration funded 10,000 Master Teachers (MT’S) to train Teachers on CC and the MT’s will keep data files on students and Teachers. Students were taught to spy on parents and teachers. CC will have students as young as 5 participating in the evaluation of Teachers.

In Nazism, the curriculum was rewritten to provide a Nazi (government) approved curriculum.. Common Core curriculum is being rewritten to provide a global approved curriculum. Nazism kept huge data files on students and teachers and Common Core will data mine the students with over 400 different data points on each child, their family and teachers from pre-kindergarten to workforce...

And one final comparison is Nazism had strong Teachers’ Unions (NSTL). We have but to look at how powerful the Teacher’s unions are in our country and only growing stronger in power and influence under this current Obama Administration’s unholy alliance with them at America’s expense and the expense of the education of our children..

The quality of the educational standards of our children has suffered at the hands of these Teachers’ Unions. Common Core is no different. Our children will suffer at the hand of a government controlled education system. They will no longer be able to have dreams and goals but only those that the government wishes them to have (UNESCO – A21).

If this isn’t Nazism, Communism, Marxism and all the “ism’s,” I don’t know what is. The worst part is they are lying to parents and teachers about what Common Core really is and the effects it will have. Teachers don’t even realize that their jobs are in jeopardy for, if they do not conform, they will be removed.. But, then again, were not the people of Russia, Germany etc. all deceived until it was too late??

Frauline Michelle and Nazi thug Holder are working like a duet with anything we say can be racist unless you are protected minority.

There are 3 posts now on Free Republic where Holder is acting like a head Gestapo thug re his definitions of racism:

Holder: ‘Too Many’ People ‘Irrationally Fear the New America That Is Emerging’

CNS News ^ | 05/19/2014 | Susan Jones

“So long as I have the privilege of serving as attorney general of the United States, this Justice Department will never stop working to expand the promise of a nation where everyone has the same opportunity to grow, to contribute, and to succeed,” Eric Holder told a civil rights group on Friday, the 60th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s school desegregation ruling. “In these and other efforts, there are undoubtedly difficult times ahead,” he said. “There are too many wedded to the past and who irrationally fear the new America that is emerging.” Holder did not elaborate on those who...

Holder, confronting issue of race once more, says ‘subtle’ threats to equality ‘cut deeper’

The Washington Post ^ | May 17, 2014 | Sari Horwitz

In a pointed and at times personal speech, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. on Saturday morning argued that America’s struggle for racial equality has become defined less by expressions of outright bigotry than by policies that subtly but systematically impede equal opportunity. Speaking during the commencement ceremony at Morgan State University, a historically black college in Baltimore, Holder referred obliquely to a series of racially charged episodes that have “received substantial media coverage” in recent weeks — an apparent reference to the controversial comments made by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling and Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy. But...

Holder: subtle racism worse than bigoted outbursts

· by Olog-hai · 59 replies
Associated Press ^ | May 17, 2014 11:56 AM EDT

Attorney General Eric Holder says subtle, institutionalized racism has a more “pernicious” effect than the occasional bigoted outburst. […] Holder noted that in some schools districts, “significant divisions persist and segregation has reoccurred,” including through discipline policies that affect black males more than whites. …

In the days of Stalin children were encouraged to inform on their parents,relatives, and associates if any of them said anything that could be interpreted as against Stalin. Moochelle, being a the good communist she is, is doing the same thing.
