Count on Rush Limbaugh to throw tact to the wayside in order to jump on any opportunity to diss the First Family whenever he’s given air time. This latest edition of his anti-black democratic President venting is directed towards First Lady Michelle Obama, particularly at her posterior.
Limbaugh went on his radio show to criticize the menu the Obamas served at a dinner for French President Francois He managed to make the whole shindig all about the President’s concerns about income equality, or rather how it somehow negated any argument that there is such a thing.
Then, he turned his attention to Michelle Obama’s rear end. Daily Kos’ ProgLegs reports:
You’ll notice that this dress is bigger than the president of France. Here, let me make one more adjustment here and I’ll show you this again. Take a look at that picture. The little guy in the middle is the socialist dictator — well, not dictator. He’s the socialist president of France. On the left, that’s not Oprah. Don’t confuse that. That’s Michelle Obama. I saw a picture of this from the rear. That’s why I thought it was Oprah.
Limbaugh blurting out that he thought Mrs. Obama was Oprah from the back is par for the course. I guess black women all look alike from behind. Still, this sounds oddly familiar. There was another conservative who commented on Michelle Obama’s weight. He too focused on the size of her butt more than anything else.
Republican congressman James Sensenbrenner was at a church event less than three years ago. He mentioned that Mrs. Obama has no reason to lead a campaign against obesity. Why? Because he says she’s got a big butt.
Let me be upfront with everyone. I love curvy women. I adore thinkness. I like big butts, and I can not lie. And I think so does Limbaugh and Sensenbrenner, secretly. I think both of them really want to bury their faces in that ass and eat it like a chocolate cake. But them being stanch conservatives, admitting that would destroy their pride faster than attending an interracial gay wedding. Not to mention that if they tried anything, they would face serious repercussions from a certain world leader they despise more than liberals themselves.
Also, who are we kiddin’ here. Limbaugh and Sensenbrenner have no room to talk about weight, literally. When was the last time those two looked in the mirror? When was the last time they ever touched their toes, let alone saw them? And have either of them done anything without sweating?
I’m not into fat shaming, but people like Limbaugh have no shame. He and his conservative clique hate 99 percent of America, especially if they’re not white, male, straight, rich and/or Christian. Limbaugh makes his money picking and choosing things to hate and fear and uses his media platform to spread hate and fear. When dealing with him, you are dealing with a man with a J. Edgar Hoover complex and a 1950’s sitcom view of the world.
Michelle Obama is a beautiful First Lady. Yet, resentful conservatives use her curvaceous figure to humiliate her in their campaign to demonize her husband. This is nothing new though. Some white people seem to categorize curvy black women as “heavy set” or “fat”. Hell, some white people actually believe that most black women are typically large. Even though it’s a stereotype, they believe that before actually seeing real black women in different sizes.
Yes, obesity is a problem in America. Michelle Obama is actively doing something about it. Maybe Limbaugh and Sensenbrenner should worry about their own bodies before they throw their weight around.
