Michelle Obama Lectures the World on Girl Power

196774_5_Originally posted at American Thinker

First lady Michelle Obama has wrapped up her six-day “Let Girls Learn” tour of Liberia, Morocco and Spain.  Together with her mother Marian and two daughters Sasha and Malia, the FLOTUS, under the guise of promoting access to education for 62 million girls worldwide, embarked on a multimillion-dollar excursion where she ate great food, wore great clothes, hung out with celebrities, and spent $600,000 for one night in Marrakesh.

In Madrid, while speaking to schoolgirls about equality, Michelle did what her husband Obama does in African nations that ban homosexuality; she interfered by making a comment about abortion that was better left unsaid.  Ignoring the fact that Spain is 68% Catholic, the wife of a man who boycotted Netanyahu for bringing a message to America he’d rather not hear, Michelle stressed that female equality is tied to aborting offspring.

In a clever way, Michelle shared her husband’s message that “If [girls] make a mistake,” they don’t need to be “punished with a baby.” Simply put, Mrs. Obama must believe that ‘letting girls learn’ sometimes means ‘letting girls die.’

Nonetheless, besides teaching her own daughters how to flaunt $4,000 outfits in the face of impoverished girls, Michelle clearly felt authorized to discuss how having children “If you choose to have them” impacts a girl’s future.

Joined by Spain’s fetching Queen Letizia Mrs. Obama had this to say about how childrearing positively impacts gender equity, “You can start with how you raise your own children. Maybe [that] means telling your sons that it’s OK to cry, and your daughters that it’s OK to be bossy.”

In gay-friendly Spain, Michelle could have just as easily said, “Maybe it means telling your sons that it’s OK to use the girl’s bathroom and your daughters that it’s OK to ask a girl to the prom.”

But she didn’t.

Instead, the Guru of Girl Power attempted to inspire her female audience to great heights by talking about the accomplishments of a certain Democratic presumptive presidential nominee whose husband, on a tarmac in Phoenix, in an effort to thwart an impending indictment, intimidated a female U.S. Attorney General on his wife’s behalf.

Then Mrs. Obama, who abandoned “Lets Move!” for a less food restrictive government-funded initiative, lamented young age girls around the world forsaking schooling for marriage. For such a supposedly bright individual, is Michelle unaware that in countries other than Spain and the U.S. encouraging girls to seek out an education could get them killed?

Nonetheless, while pushing “Let Girls Learn” the FLOTUS asked if “families and communities” who believe in things like underage marriage, and mutilating the genitals of young women, “think that girls are even worthy of an education in the first place?”

Yes, Michelle, girls are worthy of an education! However, in countries like Morocco and Liberia women are also worthy of being regularly subjected to beatings and rape by their husbands. And, on occasion, girls are even worthy of being forced into prostitution, and burnt alive. So, with so many other dangerous and more oppressive laws plaguing girls, why would Michelle Obama choose as her primary focus women being denied access to a classroom?

In Madrid, the first lady, a victim of catcalls herself, also reminded the spectators that education is “[a]bout whether girls are valued only for their bodies — for their labor, for their reproductive capacities — or … valued for their minds as well.” By telling girls in Spain that it was okay to choose education over an unborn life, Michelle Obama seemed to imply that “labor,” whether outside or inside a delivery room, may diminish opportunities for girls.

Either way, it’s hard to believe that these bitter sentiments continue to issue from the mouth of a woman who incessantly complains about gender bias and racial discrimination while enjoying the abundant fruit of a nation like America.

Moreover, Michelle’s ‘mind over body’ shtick calls into question why the first lady insists on showing off her beefy biceps.  In Madrid complete with a $2,000 price tag and a Delpozo designer label the first lady called attention to herself again by displaying arms that in the sunlight resembled two glistening rolls of bologna wrapped in a white, queen-sized bed sheet.

Nonetheless, without giving one solid example, Michelle, who hasn’t washed a dish, or scrubbed a toilet in 35-years, continued to bemoan that despite advancement for women in both the U.S. and Spain, “men and women are often held to very different standards.” Mrs. Obama reminded the girls that:

Changes in our laws haven’t always translated to changes in our cultures. And many of us still struggle with outdated norms and assumptions about the proper role for women, especially when it comes to our families and our workplaces.

And so, once again, it cost the U.S. taxpayer millions of tax dollars to transport the first lady to Liberia, Morocco, and Spain.  This time, under the banner of “Let Girls Learn,” America’s petulant FLOTUS, decked out in haute couture, represented our nation’s values by insulting cultural norms, complaining about male oppression, and peddling unrestricted abortion to Catholic schoolgirls.

Vacation Glutton Michelle’s June Jaunt

Over the last 8 years, Michelle Obama has evolved into an exemplary world traveler.  Compliments of the struggling U.S. taxpayer, the FLOTUS consistently indulges in at least five or six multi-million dollar vacations per year.

In March, if things get boring, Michelle, mother Marian, and daughters Sasha and Malia, either fly solo or use Dad (if he’s not golfing) as an excuse to pamper their weary bones with an all expense paid “working vacation.”  Like clockwork, the girl gang jets off to destinations such as Cuba, China, Japan, Qatar, Argentina or Cambodia.

Predictably, there’s always a June pre-Martha’s Vineyard vacation where Michelle tours Paris, Spain, South Africa, London, and Italy.

In August, the Obamas take a Martha’s Vineyard breather for a few weeks. On the Vineyard, the Obama family and their large tag-along entourage, at a paltry cost of give-or-take $5-million or so, enjoy a well-deserved getaway.

That summer retreat is a crucial piece of the annual Obama vacation puzzle because two weeks of ice cream cones and body surfing help the first family prepare to spend $8-million vacationing in Hawaii at Christmas for 17 days.

And Michelle, for one, notoriously milks every vacation bone dry.

One year, she flew the family dog to Hawaii on a private plane.  Another year, for her 50th birthday, before repacking for a customary February date to ski in Aspen, Colorado, Michelle banished Barry and the kids from Hawaii and for another couple of days laid over with girlfriends at Oprah Winfrey’s Maui estate.

Recently, Michelle and her mother and daughters embarked on a “Let Girls Learn” jaunt to sub-Saharan and north Africa, as well as Europe.  This time, it was for six-days and, unlike 2011, did not include fried fat cakes.

Wait! Wasn’t it just last March that the Japanese let Michelle ‘You Go, Girl’ Obama learn to play the taiko drums in Kyoto? Now, one year later, the plan for this trip is for the FLOTUS’s Moroccan and Liberian stops to be recorded for a CNN “Let Girls Learn” documentary.

CNN Films must be so committed to propping up the Obama legacy, they paid for Academy Award-winning actress Meryl Streep, who recently mocked Donald Trump in a Park Public Theater Gala in New York, and “Slum Dog Millionaire” leading lady, Freida Pinto, to join the girly LGL globe-trotters.

In the end, chances are that Michelle’s expose on the educational inequity of culturally and politically oppressed girls will be rivaled only by HBO’s riveting Beyoncé biopic: “Life is But a Dream.”

On this trip, the FLOTUS has been focused on delivering a “Let Girls Learn” message to nations where most girls suffer from poverty, Ebola, gang rape, HIV-AIDs, premature death, murder for honor by dear old dad, and being forcibly married at age nine to old letches.

Resplendent in a $2,000 Peter Pilotto black silk dress, Michelle Obama travelled half way across the world to express to those worried about being genitally mutilated that it’s high time to “Let Girls Learn.”

Besides providing the FLOTUS with a way to justify spending oodles of taxpayer money on self-indulgent vacations, the U.S. government-wide “Let Girls Learn” initiative tacitly implies that getting 62-million unschooled girls into classrooms will be as easy as Obama getting transgenders into sex-specific bathrooms.

Last year, a generous Mrs. Obama pledged $70 million dollars, the equivalent of the cost of her first five years of vacation expenses, to Pakistan, a country where 74% of the people basically hate America.  This year, while struggling Americans scrimp and save to purchase groceries, Michelle upped the ante and pledged $100 million in U.S. foreign aid to 100,000 Moroccan students – 50,000 of whom are uneducated girls.

Which is why, after her visit with Nobel Peace Prize winner, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in Ebola-stricken Liberia, and in keeping with Barack’s Muslim-apologist theme, Michelle commissioned the Marrakesh Express to shuttle her to Morocco. Dressed in what closely resembled a $3,000 black and white tablecloth, Michelle, the woman who hasn’t missed one meal in eight years, broke the Ramadan fast at an Iftar dinner hosted by Moroccan Princess Lalla Salma.

Meanwhile, female students Malia, Sasha, and Grandma the Grifter, are quickly learning that sumptuous perks are in store for those who tag along on whirlwind vacations with Michelle.  For example, Malia, who also cares deeply about illiterate girls living in poverty, showed up to the Moroccan food fest wearing a $4,295 Burberry Prorsum dress.

Either way, rather than stay in the U.S. and address the problem of immigrants who refuse to learn English, Michelle chose instead to fly to Madrid, where, after being joined by Queen Letizia Ortiz Rocasolano, spoke in English to girls in Spain about ‘letting girls learn.’

In other words, after pushing away from the Moroccan buffet table, America’s wayfaring freeloader, who last visited Malaga and Mallorca in 2010 on $500Kprivate mother/daughter trip, seamlessly segued from Marrakesh to Madrid.

And if all this seems strange, lest anyone forget, it was female education-advocate Michelle Obama who just finished making the college-graduation-speaker-circuit, where, instead of praising America, exploited keynote speeches to stir up racial tension and to grumble about “driving while black.”

Which proves that the FLOTUS’s efforts overseas have nothing to do with ‘girls learning.’

Instead, under the guise of some global gender-sensitive educational initiative that she knows is impossible to enforce, Michelle Obama has again finagled for herself a holiday. By feigning concern for girls who live in countries where socio-economic and political challenges preclude them from accessing an education, America’s vacation-glutton, Michelle Obama, has found yet another vehicle that justifies her indulging in a June vacation.
