Damned if she does, damned if she doesn’t. First lady Michelle Obama came out in support of the film “American Sniper,” so naturally, right wing heads exploded at a extraordinary pace.
“People generally see veterans in one of two ways — either the broken, downtrodden vet who is homeless or on drugs or has such severe PTSD that he can’t even function, or the saintly hero who lives with such courage and moral clarity that the only thing the rest of us can do is shower him with awe and amazement,” the first lady said at the Got Your Six screenwriters conference titled “Conversation on the Power of Telling Veterans’ Stories,” according to The Blaze.
“And of course, it’s always a he,” she added. “We sort of forget about the 1.5 million women veterans who have served in uniform.”
She continued, “But these two images — one broken, one perfect — they’re just caricatures.”
“So today, I’m calling on all of you and folks across the entertainment industry to change the conversation about our veterans and military families,” she continued. “Give us the full story.”
Ms. Obama called on Hollywood to tell the stories of veterans.
Totally evil so far, right?
“Just look at the latest box office numbers. The number-one movie in America right now is a complex, emotional depiction of a veteran and his family,” she said.
“While I know there have been critics, I felt that, more often than not, this film touches on many of the emotions and experiences that I’ve heard firsthand from military families over these past few years,” she added.
Pure unadulterated evil, according to Blaze readers.
Ms. Obama supports the movie and Blaze readers want her to shut up.
She threw her support for a movie they idolize, and she’s anti-American:
They called her “Yeti.”
This genius thinks our beautiful First Lady is a man, just because.
They called her stupid.
It’s a TRAP! One reader wanted our vets to turn their backs on her.
She’s a bitch.
Many of the Blaze readers referred to Ms. Obama as “Moochelle”:
She was called a ‘pig.’
As of now, there are over 300 comments with the majority hurling insults about a woman who actually agreed with them.
For me, I’ve always held our First Ladies in high regard. They do not hold an elected office and they put up with a lot of shit. Michelle Obama has been targeted with more hatred than any First Lady I can recall in my 57-years of life.
If you harbor an unwarranted hatred for our First Lady, then I suspect your motivating factor might be race related. Yes, I went there.
