When I say that Liberalism is an Ideology of Convenience………….

………..this is the type of thing I am talking about

The conservative twittersphere blew up when Michelle Obama gave an account of the racism she faced when shopping at Target and a shorter woman asked her for help reaching something on a top shelf. From the interview with People Magazine:

 “I tell this story – I mean, even as the first lady – during that wonderfully publicized trip I took to Target, not highly disguised, the only person who came up to me in the store was a woman who asked me to help her take something off a shelf. Because she didn’t see me as the first lady, she saw me as someone who could help her. Those kinds of things happen in life. So it isn’t anything new.”

But, back in 2012 in an interview with David Letterman, she talked about the incident and didn’t ascribe any racism to the interaction:

At another point, Letterman held up a photo of Mrs. Obama shopping at Target in low-key garb.

“That’s my Target run. I went to Target,” she said. “I thought I was undercover. I have to tell you something about this trip though. No one knew that was me because a woman actually walked up to me, right? I was in the detergent aisle, and she said — I kid you not — she said, ‘Excuse me, I just have to ask you something,’ and I thought, ‘Oh, cover’s blown.’ She said, ‘Can you reach on that shelf and hand me the detergent?’  I kid you not.”

As the audience laughed, she went on, “And the only thing she said — I reached up, ’cause she was short, and I reached up, pulled it down — she said, ‘Well, you didn’t have to make it look so easy.’ That was my interaction. I felt so good. … She had no idea who I was. I thought, as soon as she walked up — I was with my assistant, and I said, ‘This is it, it’s over. We’re going to have to leave.’ She just needed the detergent.”

There you go, same story, same Liberal telling it, but with different narratives. See, how convenient, just change your spin on the story to fit the narrative, in this case how RAAAAACIST America is!

Another Race Baiter Rushes to Defend Rantin’ Rangel

Here we go folks. Every time a race-baiter on the Left has an opportunity to be consistent and call down a Liberal who utters racist remarks, they instead make excuses. The latest example? Earl Ofari Hutchinson. Hutchinson defends Rangel calling the Tea Party racists and White Crackers

Rangel has history on his side to back up his broadside. During the 1960s, GOP ultra conservatives, libertarian groups, and the far right from the John Birch Society to the Young Americans for Freedom waged a prolonged and bitter fight against liberal Democrats and moderate Republicans to block civil rights legislation. It was always the same argument. Those civil rights and voting rights bills encroached on state’s rights, usurped the Constitution, and were a gross impediment to personal and commercial freedom.

Of course, one doesn’t have to go back to the 1960s to make the case that Rangel inelegantly made that many of those who back the Tea Party today would have opposed civil rights back in the day. There are a few notable Supreme Court judges that used virtually the same arguments as civil rights foes of the past to gut the Voting Rights Act, and any other civil rights strengthening measure that has been on the court docket. There are legions of Tea Party affiliated GOP House representatives that cloak themselves in their read of the Constitution and libertarianism to relentlessly flail Obama and the Democrats for spending on domestic programs that aid minorities and the poor. Ron Paul and son Rand are the two top guns for the GOP’s right-libertarian wing, and they have filled up a small directory with putdowns of past and present civil rights initiatives.

Of course, most people who benefit from programs like food stamps are White. And, I could point out that Conservatives and Libertarians criticize the WASTE and CORRUPTION in those programs, and no necessarily the programs intentions. But Hutchinson doe snot want facts

Then there’s the Tea Party’s well-documented silence when it comes to denouncing the overt bigots within the ranks of its various factions. This bunch unleashed a proliferation of Obama “Joker” posters — showing him as Batman’s ultimate nemesis — crude, racist scrawls on signs and banners, Confederate flags and Texas Lone Star flags, and racist digs at the president and first lady Michelle Obama for a time.

OK here we go. The Tea Party has been silent on the racist acts and remarks of Tea Party members because those events have largely been invented by Leftists like Hutchinson. In other words that “overt” racism never happened, and that IS well-documented, but, again, do not confuse Hutchinson with facts. 

As to the “Joker” posters, I would say so? How are they racist? In fact they are not, and Hutchinson, in  a moment of honesty, if he ever has one would admit that. Hutchinson also mentions the “crude, racist scrawls on signs and banners” at Tea Party rallies. Again, there is no there there. Mr. Hutchinson can continue making the baseless allegation all he wants, but he will still be lying. As to the presence of  “Confederate flags and Texas Lone Star flags, and racist digs at the president and first lady Michelle Obama for a time.” I will ask when the State Flag of Texas became racist? When was that exactly Mr. Hutchinson? The racist digs at the FLOTUS and the President? Care to cite specific genuine examples Mr. Hutchinson? If so bring them, if not please shut the Hell up.

Finally, the obligatory reference to the Confederate Flag that every Liberal makes as proof of racism. Mr. Hutchinson, you really ought to read a bit of history, your blatant ignorance is an embarrassment. My ancestors, and many other Southern men, of all colors, yes ALL colors and religions, defined the Confederate Battleflag on the battle fields from 1861 to 1865, and racism is not a part of that definition.

Lastly, you can go read the rest of the bilge Hutchinson spews if you wish. He can scream and rant about racism all he wants, but if he REALLY wants to look at racism, and hatefulness, and ignorance, I suggest he stop looking at the Tea Party and start looking in his closest mirror!

 

 

USDA Claims It Will Cost $3.2 Billion To Comply With Michelle Obama’s School Lunch Overhaul

Cost Of Complying With Michelle Obama’s School Lunch Overhaul? $3.2 BILLION! – The Blaze

As schools continue to grapple with the school lunch menu overhaul pushed by First Lady Michelle Obama, some are realizing their headache isn’t just from a lack of food.

.

The program involves way too much green – and we’re not talking lettuce and brussel sprouts.

We mean the estimated $3.2 billion schools will have to find to implement the new federal regulations. Many schools are also losing money due the unpopular Obama menu.

“New school lunch regulations mean financial losses for Pittsfield Public Schools,” reported The Berkshire Eagle in Massachusetts.

The school district expects a program operating loss of more than $100,000 due to a required equipment upgrade, as well as fewer lunches and snacks being sold.

Congressman Todd Rokita, a member of the House Education and Workforce Committee, noted at a recent hearing, “Because the law requires students to take fruits and vegetables for lunch, even if they have no intention of eating them, schools are struggling with increased waste. After implementing the new standards a year early, one Florida school district estimated students threw out $75,000 worth of food.”

“At Dedham High School in Massachusetts, providing the required vegetables in 1500 meals each week costs the district about $111 a day – but administrators report many students just throw the fresh vegetables right into the trash,” his statement read.

A New York district experienced a 50 percent decline in the number of student purchasing hot lunch.

“This decline in participation made it more difficult for the school to afford to serve lunches and breakfasts that met the federal meal requirements. As a result, the district’s food operation went $59,000 in the red and local leaders ultimately decided to opt-out of the National School Lunch Program,” Rokita said.

The USDA estimates implementation of the new guidelines will cost $3.2 billion over five years. Given that it’s a government estimate – and if Obamacare is any guide – the cost for schools will likely be much higher.

Indiana School District Loses $300,000 When Students Stop Buying School Meals After They Switched To Mooch’s Food Regulations – Weasel Zippers

But it makes Mooch feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

INDIANAPOLIS – The carnage shifted from the students’ lunch plates to school budgets after Michelle Obama’s lunch regulations were voluntarily implemented last year.

Officials in the Carmel Clay, Indiana school district told JConline.com they lost $300,000 last school year when many students rejected the menu changes and stopped purchasing school meals.

Amy Anderson, the food service director for the school district, told the newspaper, “I’m a registered dietitian. I used to feel that I was an educator and part of the education system. I currently feel like I’m a food cop.

“I don’t get credit for the 98 percent of our kids who are within normal weight range. I only get slammed for the 2 to 3 percent who aren’t.”

She said the changes may “drive her into retirement,” according to the paper.

Students in another central Indiana district were equally displeased.

“Kids eat with their eyes. When they saw that smaller portion, that freaked them out,” said Jennifer Rice, food service director of Lebanon Community School Corp., where the popular Salisbury steak shrunk, the paper reported.

Your Marxist Moron of the day is………

Michelle Obama herself

First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” initiative is praising textbook publishers for “swapping out cupcakes for apples in math problems,” in a campaign to incorporate health information into the learning resources for kids.

“Today at the White House, we celebrated a group of educational publishers on their development of voluntary guidance to incorporate health information into textbooks and other learning materials,” Let’s Move! said in a blog post entitled, “Cookies 2 Carrots,” on Wednesday.

“Publishers are making simple changes, like swapping out cupcakes for apples in math problems,” the anti-obesity initiative noted. “They are also finding ways to include physical activity in lesson plans – discussing the history of little league baseball and using sports in word problems.”

Another step, towards eliminating certain words from public view. Statism rolls on, smashing one cupcake at a time
