Yesterday, former First Lady Michelle Obama delivered a racially charged statement regarding the Capitol protests, while demanding that social media platforms permanently ban President Trump.
In a statement posted to social media, Mrs. Obama slammed the mostly pro-Trump crowd as a “gang” who “laid siege to the United States Capitol.”
She called for full, unadulterated censorship of the President:
“Now is the time for Silicon Valley companies to stop enabling this monstrous behavior – and go even further than they already have by permanently banning this man from their platforms and putting in place policies to prevent their technology from being used by the nation’s leaders to fuel insurrection.”
The vague reference to the ‘nation’s leaders’ and ‘putting in place policies,’ in my opinion, means the censorship could apply to nearly anybody who supports the President or demands accountability from their government.
Like all of you, I’ve been feeling so many emotions since yesterday. I tried to put my thoughts down here: pic.twitter.com/9xzRvrpk7y

Michelle Obama Wants President Trump Banned
Michelle Obama wasn’t content to call for an assault on the First Amendment for individuals politically opposed to her ideology.
Her statement also poured kerosene on the fire by claiming protesters at the Capitol were treated differently because they are white.
An unarmed 14-year Navy veteran was shot dead and three others succumbed to medical issues as a result of the protest, but in Obama’s eyes, it would have been much worse if the protesters were predominantly black.
“What if these rioters had looked like the folks who go to Ebenezer Baptist Church every Sunday?” she said. “What would have been different?”
“Seeing the gulf between the responses to yesterday’s riot and this summer’s peaceful protests and the larger movement for racial justice is so painful,” Obama added.
“It hurts. … in city after city, day after day, we saw cracked skulls and mass arrests, law enforcement pepper-spraying its way through a peaceful demonstration for a presidential photo op.”
Michelle Obama is demanding that social media platforms permanently ban President Trump as a “sign of true patriotism.” Spoken like a true fascist.

Even As The Country Is In Turmoil, Michelle Obama Can’t Stop Lying
Mrs. Obama’s reference to the ‘peaceful demonstration’ is in regards to St. John’s Episcopal Church which was under siege by protesters in June.
The church was, in actuality, vandalized and partially set ablaze during violent riots over the death of George Floyd.
The crowd was dispersed by U.S. Park Police who stated “officers were being pelted with water bottles” and “protesters had climbed on top of the structure at the north end of Lafayette Square that had been burned the day before.”
Furthermore, an analysis by the Daily Caller News Foundation indicates there were “no reported fatalities at the hands of police during Black Lives Matter protests last year.”
They add, however, that there were numerous examples of police officers responding violently to activists, journalists, and bystanders.

Mrs. Obama blasted President Trump, saying the riots were a “fulfillment of the wishes of an infantile and unpatriotic president who can’t handle the truth of his own failures.”
That is a blatant disregard for the fact that her husband, former president Barack Obama, dealt with protests throughout the country under his tenure, and helped create a chasm in race relations that have never healed.
Polls have shown that race relations grew exponentially worse under Obama and then-Vice President Joe Biden – a Democrat who told African-Americans they “ain’t black” if you don’t support him.
The Obamas took a racial tinder box and decided to light a match. President Trump has been fighting against that ever since he took office.
For the most part, social media companies seem more than willing to agree to Michelle Obama’s terms.
Twitter and Facebook blocked President Trump from sharing messages with his followers for a period of time yesterday and threatened to implement a permanent ban.
Some Big Tech giants went so far as to deplatform businesses associated with the President.

Make no mistake – what Michelle Obama is calling for extends beyond censorship. It’s thought control. It’s threatening Americans who may agree with the President on certain things, including concerns over election integrity.
And that is the thought process of a third-world dictator. Silence your political opponents by any means necessary.
Michelle Obama’s statement is disgusting and not worthy of a true American.
