Right Wing Media Incites Hatred of Michelle Obama

Stoking the racism and rage
Wingnuts • Views: 32,874

As we noted yesterday, the Twitter topic started by First Lady Michelle Obama to discuss her fitness campaigns, #AskFLOTUS, was absolutely swarmed by conservatives tweeting horrifically hateful, sexist and racist “questions.”

The depth of the contempt and hatred would be shocking, except that it’s so incredibly common on the right. As we’ve documented many times, whenever an article about Michelle Obama appears at a right wing site, it provokes a deluge of vile comments.

One of the contributing factors to this disgusting mass hatred phenomenon is the tacit (and sometimes not so tacit) encouragement of this behavior by the right wing media.

At two very popular right wing propaganda websites today, we find an orgy of back-slapping and gloating over their “hijack” of the #AskFLOTUS topic; Michelle Malkin’s twitchy.com and Glenn Beck’s theblaze.com:

Boom! #AskFLOTUS Hashtag Hijack: Michelle Obama Asks for Questions; Happy Warriors Deliver | Twitchy

Backfire: 9 of the Top Hijacked Responses the #AskFlotus Fitness Campaign by Michelle Obama | TheBlaze.com

The comments at the Twitchy site are just chock full of racism and hatred, of course. But one of them caught my eye as a perfect candidate for the Wingnut Free Verse of the Day:

Press conference?

Naw,…
some uppity journalist might
ask her
about some of these questions
from her Happy Warriors
at Twitchy.

Flotus Mooche will
probably have her
$ 100,000/yr Royal Court Calligraphers
pen a pretty note and send it to Kim IL Duh
advising him
to let his malnourished NK children eat cake or lobster.

That ought to get our truce back in effect,
eh?

Remember,
SOS,
John “Gigolo” Kerry,
now says
we all have a Right to act
Stupidly,…

just like Bozo did
when he blamed the Cambridge Police
for busting
his resistant prof. pal,
Gates.
