Michelle Obama Cries That Muslim Women are Being Treated Like Jim Crow South Blacks

Michelle Obama is full of compassion for Muslims, apparently. During her trip to Europe this week, the First Lady told Muslim women in Britain that they are being discriminated against just like blacks were in the Jim Crow south.

Now, correct me if I’m wrong, but in the Jim Crow south and during the Civil Rights marches, I don’t recall blacks going around cutting off people’s heads, conducting suicide bombings, or saying that they wanted to kill all non-believers.

But, it seems that Michelle Obama feels that Muslims are somehow in the same situation as blacks were in the USA[1] before the civil rights bill was passed.

Michelle Obama compared her struggle to succeed as a young black woman in America to the experience of British Muslim girls during a visit to in inner-city girls school in London.

The First Lady, who is visiting the UK for two days, and met with Prince Harry this morning, struggled to hold back tears as she gave an emotional speech to Mulberry School for Girls in London’s Tower Hamlets.

…She said: “Girls like you inspire me and impress me every single day.

“When I look out at all these young women, I see myself. In so many ways your story is my story.”

…Mrs Obama drew links between the experience of young black women in America to the struggles faced by British Muslim girls.

She said: “Maybe you see the news and see people talking about your religion, and wonder if anyone will ever see beyond your headscarf.”

Obama’s whole line of reasoning is filled with lies. The fact is, these Muslim girls are not being held back by hateful white people who stand against Islam. These girls are held back by Islam itself.

It is their fathers, brothers, and leaders who say Muslim girls don’t deserve to be doctors, or scientists, or shouldn’t even be allowed to drive a car or leave home without permission.

Michelle knows this, of course. But her goal is to lie about Islam to push her political position. She couldn’t care less what happens to these British Muslim girls. She cares about them only so far as she can use them to push her political narrative
