Breitbart Hack Joel Pollak Says Michelle Obama Copied… the Dreaded Alinsky!

Commies under the right wing bed

I know the previous article was titled “The 3 Most Amazing And/Or Ridiculous Republican Attempts to Deny Melania Trump’s Plagiarism,” but that was before I saw this amazingly dim-witted post at Breitbart “News” by Joel Pollak: Michelle Obama Copied Alinsky in Speech Melania Trump Plagiarized.

ALINSKY! ALINSKY! [lights hair on fire, runs around screaming]

Michelle Obama: “…the world as it should be.” In 2008, the aspiring First Lady was accused by bloggers of lifting lines for her DNC speech from Saul Alinsky. Alinsky wrote, in Rules for Radicals (emphasis added): “The standards of judgment must be rooted in the whys and wherefores of life as it is lived, the world as it is, not our wished-for fantasy of the world as it should be.” Michelle Obama said: “And Barack stood up that day, and he spoke words that have stayed with me ever since. He talked about ‘the world as it is‘ and ‘the world as it should be.’” (Perhaps Mr. Obama who left out the attribution.)

To call this “reaching” cheapens the term; this is pure propaganda for mindless idiots, like most of the drek you find at Breitbart.

Notice in the screenshot above that there are more than 8000 comments for this post; if you take a look at them (which I don’t really recommend) you’ll see some of the worst, most vile racism and hate speech anywhere on the Internet. Pollak knows, of course, that any post about Michelle Obama will incite torrents of racist comments; it’s the Breitbart business model.

And I’ll leave you with a graphic I created specially for occasions like this.

Fallen OakThis was the tree that fell in yesterday's storms. It is blocking a street that is wide and is used by public transit. I hope by tomorrow it is gone.
