Michelle Obama lives in a house that slaves built, she should take a page out of the George Foreman playbook
Michelle Obama Denounces Donald Trump in CUNY Commencement Speech
She is a woman who was not proud of America until her husband became President, and who begrudges every perceived slight.
"'It’s the story that I witness every single day when I wake up in a house that was built by slaves, and I watch my daughters — two beautiful, black young women — head off to school, waving goodbye to their father, the president of the United States, the son of a man from Kenya who came here to America for the same reasons as many of you: to get an education and improve his prospects in life.'"
Ah, yes, the house that slaves built. How horrible it must be to live in that house. Perhaps this is the cause of she and her husband's desire to act with wanton disregard as to costs when they vacation. She's sticking it to the man who built her house with slave labor.
Michelle Obama does not see or understand that those slaves were likely very proud of what they did. Their conditions may have been deplorable, but it is very unlikely they did not see what they were doing, and take pride in it.
Compare Michelle Obama's incapacity to move on to how George Foreman views things.
"I used to see a lot of the heroes from World War II and you'd be sitting there having a joke with them and they would take their shirt off and show you a wooden arm that they had lost, or they'd show you a wooden leg or plastic eye after they'd lost theirs in the war.
You didn't feel sorry for them, you'd feel proud that they'd give you some time.
Muhammad Ali is a hero and now the hero can show off any wound he has.
He's still beautiful to me. This guy is a treasure. He's a universal treasure. I'm just happy I have a life aligned with his."
Rumble in the Jungle: Foreman on his epic battle with Ali in Zaire
Foreman understands that while the WWII veteran has lost, he has also gained. This is a man who when subjected to something terrible, endeavored, persevered, and was an integral part of something important. These men should be proud of their accomplishments, and while their personal consequences are heartrending and deplorable, neither Foreman, nor these men felt anything other than pride.
Michelle Obama could be proud of what the slaves helped build, but she cannot see to that outcome, instead she is so ensnared in victimhood, las to be incapable of seeing the slaves as people at all, she sees them as disposable pawns in her inane victim status seeking. We have little time or inclination to listen to or read the inane rambling of such a shabby thinker.
Thanks George for showing us how it should be done.
We will end with two referent axioms. The moral man will always out. Oft evil will shall evil mar.
