That's not even close to true.
Yesterday First Lady Michelle Obama and Jill Biden appeared at the last NASCAR race of the season to serve as co-grand marshals and shout “Gentlemen, start your engines!” The appearance was part of the Joining Forces initiative and yesterday, according to the White House, FLOTUS was joined by “5,000 active duty and retired military personnel and families and thousands of NASCAR fans” and was loudly booed when her name was announced over the loud speakers.Adam Shriver at the St. Louis Activist Hub had this:
At an event with such an apparently unifying theme, the crowd’s reaction was an ugly reminder of how personally some have taken the political divisions in our country.It’s not a recent occurrence, and to my memory, this is the first time that a Democrat has been publicly booed. I certainly don’t recall progressive media condemning how Sarah Palin was booed at a hockey game in Philadelphia.
I’ve always said that respect for public office is a two-way street, and the ultimate failure of this is when the individual holding said office doesn’t themselves demonstrate respect for it.
Is it really a surprise that after three-and-a-half years of being demonized by the party of the President and First Lady (when they aren’t doing the demonizing themselves) that Americans would issue a frosty reception? This is the same President that called Americans “bitter clingers” [their emphasis]:
And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.
Yes, 300+ criminal acts of “expression.” And the people screaming the loudest over the NASCAR booing are the people who support and endorse this.
Remember, it was the Obama administration which placed the Tea Party on the DHS watch list for domestic terrorism, which to me sounds like bad manners to label someone as a potential domestic terrorist simply for disagreeing with your policies or carrying a military-authorized Gadsen flag.
I haven’t seen a blip about these “bad manners” from the progressives attempting to excoriate conservatives and the NASCAR audience (five thousand of which were military and military families) over the First Lady’s reception.
Dana Loesch, in an article too stupid for words, defended classless conservatives who booed Michelle Obama at a NASCAR event honoring veterans by rambling on about a bunch of unrelated things.Loesch is indeed one of the stupidest RW hack bloggers in American, right there with Michelle Malkin, Weasel Zippers, Pamela Geller, and St. Louis's own Jim Hoft (aka Gateway Pundit) and Adam Sharp (Sharpelbows.com).
Cape Girardeau-born sewer-mouth racist loudmouth Rush Limbaugh said that "she deserved to be booed for her 'uppityness'."
From the 11.21.2011 edition of Premiere Radio Networks' The Rush Limbaugh Show:
Back in late September of this year, Loesch misleadingly declared that "there was no booing of the LGBTQ soldier."
From this blog on 09.23.2011:
Today, on Big Journalism, CNN "Contributor" Dana Loesch falsely claimed that the crowd didn't boo Stephen Hill for supporting LGBTQ soldiers in the military. And Loesch has a track record for being homophobic.
This morning while on the Political Buzz panel for CNN we discussed the reported “booing” of the gay soldier who asked about DADT at last night’s debate.
Considering the amount of print devoted to painting the entire crowd out to be bloodthirsty haters with zero regard for military service, it’s no wonder that it would become a question the next day.
Unfortunately for the progressives writing the spin (who forget that it was their idol Bill Clinton who enacted DADT in the first place), the entire story of the debate audience booing is a lie.
Sara Rumpf was in the debate audience and what she witnessed was vastly different than the account the outlets linked above are reporting:
I want to put this on the record now about an incident that happened at tonight’s Republican debate. It’s important that the truth is shared, because I have already seen liberal bloggers and some people on Twitter completely distorting what happened.
The debate included video questions that were submitted on YouTube, and one came from a soldier serving in Iraq who is gay and asked about the candidates’ opinions on don’t ask don’t tell. There was audible booing after his question…however, please note that it was not the crowd booing. It was only one or two people.
Frankly, I don’t care where you stand on DADT, you don’t boo a soldier in the battlefield, period. The audience at last night’s debate believe this which is why they verbally took apart the men who yelled. Conservatives police their side.
If progressives want to talk about bigotry, let’s talk about the unfiltered racist hatred they dumped on Twitter the night Troy Davis was delivered justice. Look at Michelle Malkin’s Twitter stream for that. I’m waiting for progressives to clean up their house.
Dear Dana, they DID boo the soldier, you lying moron! And no, Conservatives do NOT police their side.
There is indeed double standards from this hack blogger who goes on CNN to lie on national TV on a regular basis.
