Right Wing Media Incites Hatred of Michelle Obama
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:

when he blamed the Cambridge Police
