Posted on 12/17/2009 6:17:40 PM PST by opentalk
MICHELLE OBAMA: "Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices; we are going to have to change our conversation; we're going to have to change our traditions, our history; we're going to have to move into a different place as a nation."
(END VIDEO CLIP)
Change our traditions and change our history. What did she mean by that? I think we are starting to see it.
Changing history means not just telling the same old tall tales of the free market system and the Founders. No, it's the history according to progressives. And it's not merely spinning the old facts; it's taking current events and molding them to fit the progressive agenda and, in this case, completely ignoring history.
What else did she say? Change traditions. Here are some facts:
92 percent of Americans believe in God
. 66 percent say they will celebrate Christmas as a religious holiday honoring the birth of Jesus Christ
Only 6 percent don't celebrate Christmas at all; 3 percent were not sure how to answer
...It doesn't match the real values of the country. But removing God does fit the progressive agenda.
Change history. Change traditions. But you can't just wipe them out, you need to replace it with something. And we are constantly being force-fed the progressive agenda through intentional propaganda:
But if you are crossed out, who is being put in?
They are changing our history, changing our traditions and indoctrinating our children.

Congress forced to meet on Christmas Eve is an example of this progressive movement.

The Obamas, obviously, think the American people are morons. Who does she think she’s BS-ing? Queen Michelle and King Barack have been living it up at the expense of the American taxpayers. We are to sacrifice while they suck up our tax money and destroy our children and grandchildren’s future. What a national disgrace. I want to scream!

With each “umplugged” comment we get a clearer picture of just who this angry dangerous woman really is.
America has not tried dictatorship beofe either. Is that where this is going?
Anyone stupid enough to marry this street skank is no one I trust to make decisions.
...we're going to have to move into a different place...
I long for the day when I'll see you have to move into a different place, you wicked, communist, she-devil.
IMO Mrs 0 ought to shut up. She & her hubby can change their traditions but she can keep her hands off mine & everyone else's. Leave our history alone too... And they ought to move to a different nation & leave this one. What personal sacrifices have these two made???? Seems to me that they got a great deal. Life in the White House, dinners, date nights, golf, & traveling all over & not paying a dime for any of it.
...we're going to have to change our traditions, our history; we're going to have to move into a different place as a nation.Yeah, for example, no more Democrats.
‘Obama now claims he has no records from Illinois”.
LIAR! I’m not Joe Wilson but I approve of this and his prescient message.
New song for Christmas. “WHO LET THE BITCH OUT?”
Hope the White House has a lot of Kibbles and Bits for the 1st B*tch!
The Wookie can go pound sand.
Yea, ok, gotcha.
Yo, sista its American Traditions we are talking about.
You are not going to be able to change them, your menz are not going to be able to change them, and all your ignorant publick skoo droolers are not going to be able change them.
However, most assuredly, when the now somewhat better informed voters kick yo azzs to da kurb, you will say it will be due to dey ist razist because we've never really worked through - a part of our union that we have yet to perfect."
No way the record shattering worst Presidency in the entire history of the u.S. would have a thing to do with it, right? Naaaa.
Would not be that you and your hubby are FLAMING communists, huh?
Razed by communists from birth? Oh no, that isnt it.
Perhaps, in order to truly understand the nature of the problem we should take the advice of one of there own. Gloria Steinem said, The truth shall set you free, but first itll piss you off.
If you REALLY want to understand the nature of the oozing hate and self loathing of our First Lady
If you REALLY want to understand why she demands we change our (American) traditions, our (American) history;
Clench your fists
Grit your teeth
Take a deep breath
Open your eyes wide
Look at the shining example of the history of their homeland, Africa.
Told ya Gloria was right .
The latest initiative by our "Children's Secretary", Ed Balls, is to abolish what remains of fact-based teaching of history and geography in our schools. He plans to "roll them together into themed lessons on social issues such as global warming" (funny how that seems to seep into everything nowadays).
The ruthless drive of educational progressives to eliminate history-teaching from schools has been under way since the 1960s. The aim is to ensure that children know nothing about their country's past or how the world came to be as it is, leaving their minds blankly open to whatever vacuous progressive claptrap is fed to them.
In his desire to chuck history onto what Lenin called "the scrapheap of history",
POINT: Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices; we are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation. Michelle Obama
COUNTERPOINT: Every welfare state has been introduced by wholesale trampling of traditionswhich have grown naturally. The German Nazis under Hitler, the Russian Communists under Lenin, and the American New Dealers under Roosevelt have all sneered at the old ways of doing things. Religious, political, and economic traditions all come in for a drastic overhaulor an attempt at drastic overhaul. Change in many cases seems to have been made for changes sake itself, which the newcomers to high places sometimes behaving like guilty youngsters climbing up to the cookie jar, who want to see how much they can get away with. Paul A. Sexson and Stephen B. Miles, Jr., The Challenge of Conservatism (1964)
“.. dey ist razist ...”
You know, it NEVER fails to amaze me how people are just simply terrified of that word.
I’m to the point now where if that’s what they want to call me, fine. No problem. Here’s my answer “OK, I am - now what are YOU going to do about it?”
If wanting to protect MY people, MY culture, MY history, and MY Nation from being overrun, subverted, undermined, and erased is “racist”, then well, yeah...I AM. And proudly so.
If wanting to ensure that MY children get to grow up in the Country that generations of THEIR ancestors fought, bled, and died for, and have the same opportunities to succeed or fail that I did makes me “racist”, well, then yeah - I AM. And proudly so.
If wanting the language, heritage, culture, and the very IDEA of the Nation that I love to REMAIN intact for succeeding generations, so that they have a chance to live decently and in liberty is “racist” - well, yeah - I AM. And proudly so.
If believing that nobody owes ANYBODY else a goddamned thing, except a chance to live their lives and be left the hell alone, free of government interference that tries to equalize outcomes at the expense of those who actually PRODUCE wealth in a society is “racist” - well, you’re damned right, I AM. And proudly so.
And it all comes down to this: If I am, or we are, what the hell are they going to do about it?
Words only have power if you LET them have power.
Deny them that power by agreeing and grinning in their faces.
Followed up by a giant middle finger, if you’re so inclined.
“...ruthless drive of educational progressives to eliminate history-teaching from schools ...”
That’s what it’s OUR job, as parents, to rebuke and debunk EVERY scrap that the schools try to shove down our kids’ throats.
We take every opportunity to undo the damage. Why in the world would ANYONE surrender their childrens’ minds to the State without fighting back?
A simple question: “What did you talk about in school today?” Listen attentively; then follow up with “That’s not exactly how it happened back then - HERE is what really happened.” Backed up by books and references and Internet searches.
You can educate your own children and undo a lot of the brainwashing, just by paying attention to their lessons.
