I was hoping not to have to do yet another article on the right wing racist NUTS, for fear of crossing the Bachmann line. Due to the recent flurry attacks from Palin, Bachmann, and Limbaugh on First Lady Michelle Obama, I felt the need to address such incredible ignorance and blatant racism, a la Andrew Breitbart’s racist cartoon. I’m frankly surprised that have not called her “uppity.”
Really? Really? This is where we are as a nation? We are attacking the First Lady because she is preaching against childhood obesity and advocating breast feeding–am I alone in thinking this is not only ignorant racism at work, but PROFOUND STUPIDITY on behalf of anyone listening to this noticeably white cadre of critics. Childhood obesity is a real problem in America right now, which also weighs heavy on the healthcare system (no pun intended). Have any of these critics of the First Lady done any research on the dangers of childhood obesity, or on the benefits of breast feeding? No, they are all graduates of the Bachmann Skuull, or is spelled Skool? Click here to read a comprehensive study about the benefits of breast feeding. Lest we forget the benefits and links between mental health and physical health.
When as a culture do we say enough is enough! When does intellect defeat ignorance? When are we willing to examine truth and reflect and take action, which is what the First Lady is asking us to do.
