(Some Guy)   Comparing Michelle Obama to Marie Antoinette is racist because someone called her "Your Excellency" on Nickelodeon and Marie Antoinette was African-American. Or something like that   (bookwormroom.com) divider line

Racist? No, for once. Stupid like the Joker meme? Absolutely.

Yeah, it's not that the image is racist, just retarded.

Shrug. They're comparing Marie "let them eat cake" Antoinette to the recent yelling about the Obamas taking an ostentatious, expensive vacation during which Michelle Obama went out and spent more on some clothes than most people make in months. It's a fair comparison.

It would be a fair comparison if the money spent on those clothes came from the tax coffers. As it turns out, the Obamas can afford nice things because they fared well in the capitalist system even after paying taxes.

so does she charge that directly to the national debt or does she first run it through a credit card for the rewards and then expense it to the national debt. because there's no way the obama family has ever had a chance to amass enough personal wealth to purchase clothing.

I take the the latest manufactured outrage among Moran-Americans is some made-up bullshiat about extravagant spending on the part of the First Lady.

Does that mean you people are done being outraged that she suggests maybe your fat-ass children could stand to waddle around outside every once in a while and take a break from the cheetos and Playstation?

Any criticism of Barack Obama, his policies, his past, his associates, or his family is racist and will not be tolerated.

Cite needed that people are "outraged."

But making fun of our dreadfully dour First Lady's officiousness about what others eat, as she regularly chows down on fatty foods? That's just fun stuff.

I find it amusing that supporters of OWS are so quick to defend the right of particular members of the "1%" (the Obamas, Alec Baldwin, Al Gore, Warren Buffet) to behave in ways that they claim otherwise to find disgusting.

Honestly, if you want to play up the hypocrisy angle, you'd be better off looking at the huge amounts of money he's thrown at GM, Chrysler, Bank of America, Chase, Comerica, Merril Lynch, etc.

Yes clearly, because buying nice clothes means she wishes to oppress the masses and is unmoved by the plight of the poor.

Just like Marie Antionette.

Being wealthy is not a sin. Spending money is not a sin. Treating the poor like they're mangy dogs good for nothing but starving is.

Idiot.

Ambivalence: Yes clearly, because buying nice clothes means she wishes to oppress the masses and is unmoved by the plight of the poor.


There's an old saying about not trying to force an analogy to run on all four legs.

If Michelle Obama wants to buy a bunch of clothes or take an expensive vacation she's certainly entitled. But she and her husband occasionally seem to be a bit clueless about how their actions could be interpreted.

Seems to me she could shop for clothes and spend her vacation money a lot more discreetly. Of course they might then be accused of trying to hide things.

The point is that the First Lady and Marie Antoinette share some characteristics -- not ALL characteristics.

As it turns out, the Obamas can afford nice things because they fared well in the capitalist system even after paying taxes.

Right, because the Obamas have never criticized the lifestyles of the rich and ostentatious. And what "capitalist" job did they actually ever have?

From TFA:

The caricature of Obama as a profligate queen relies on the racist stereotype of an "uppity Negro," which emerged among slave masters in an earlier American era.

I'm a supporter of the OWS and I find Obama, Baldwin, Gore and Buffet to all be deplorable people. They're all hypocrites. Obama is the worst of all of them. He's a Republican with a D next to his name.

So 'tax payer funded' means what? What random coffer does this fund come out of? Or does any sort of spending that the family does become a slight against everyone else?

What I get from the column is a bunch of stupid people are being stupid with an inaccurate comparison between Michelle and Marie, a misinterpretation of the rationale behind the comparison, and an attempted flexing of literary knowledge despite using a rather famous Holmes line to make a weak joke. F*ck you submitter for making me read this (yes, "making").

Well, "racist" is the "socialist" of the left. It's a bad-sounding word that you apply to things or people you don't like - just as rightists call everything they don't like "socialist"., regardless of whether it even remotely applies.
Same vapid, intellectually dishonest crap, different side of the aisle.

That article, BTW, is about the dumbest thing seen in print since the last time I read an article from WND.

She is just pissed because Marie Antoinette had her head cut off and is being compared with her. Maybe Michelle likes pancakes with syrup and we should refer to her as Aunt Jemima?

apoptotic: Portraying Michelle Obama as Marie "Let Them Eat Cake" Antoinette may be confusing to those who think the First Lady wants to ban cake and replace it with broccoli.


Funnier still: Marie never said that. And saying "let them eat cake" was to say "since there's no more crappy bread to dole to the poor, give them the good stuff".

The more you know, the less ignorant you are!
