Michelle Obama was one of the keynote speakers on the first night of the Democratic National Convention.

The liberal media predictably fawned over her performance.

But her soaring rhetoric hid the fact that her speech was one big lie.

During her remarks, Michelle Obama tried to present herself as a defender of an inspirational America.

Politico reports:

Obama described the ideal 45th president as a unifying figure who won’t pit divisions of people against each other because “we are always stronger together.”

 “I am here tonight because I know that that is the kind of president Hillary Clinton will be, and that is why in this election, I’m with her,” she said. “You see, Hillary understands that the president is about one thing and one thing only: It is about leaving something better for our kids.”

 But before she closed, she delivered a message unmistakably aimed at the billionaire businessman. “Don’t let anyone ever tell you that this country is not great, that somehow we need to make it great again,” she said. “Because this right now is the greatest country on Earth.”

 And she issued a call to action, urging Democrats to be just as active, if not more, than they were when they elected and reelected President Obama in 2008 and 2012.

 But critics contend Michelle Obama’s speech was covering up her own negative attitudes toward America.

Before the Wisconsin primary in 2008, Michelle Obama made it known she was disgusted with America.

Newsweek reports:

Before the Wisconsin primary in mid-February, Michelle Obama made a remark that Republicans will use to hammer her husband should he win the Democratic nomination.  “For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.”

 Newsweek  also reported that the remark harkened back to the racially charged senior thesis she wrote at Princeton University:

The remark may have been just a slip under the relentless pressure of campaigning. But it may also reveal an edge of bitterness that Michelle Obama felt as a Princeton senior, when she was just entering her adult life.

 In the winter of that year, 1985, she wrote her thesis on the subject of “Princeton-Educated Blacks and the Black Community.” The thesis is dense with sociological jargon about “dependent variables” and the like, but it also includes some strong personal sentiments.

 Though she came from a black working-class neighborhood in Chicago, she writes that “my experiences at Princeton have made me far more aware of my ‘blackness’ than ever before. I have found that at Princeton, no matter how liberal and open-minded some of my White professors and classmates try to be towards me, I sometimes feel like a visitor on campus; as if I really don’t belong. Regardless of the circumstances under which I interact with Whites at Princeton, it often seems as if, to them, I will always be Black first and a student second.”

 She further suggests that even if she assimilates into white society after Princeton, she will “remain on the periphery of society: never becoming a full participant.”

 Michelle Obama did not let up on her racial remarks once she became First Lady.

She used her final commencement address as First Lady to declare that she wakes up “every day in a house built by slaves.”

For the media to claim that Michelle Obama is well positioned as a champion of American dreams and aspirations after her speech is a lie that is easily disproved upon examination of her rhetoric towards America, both as a candidate’s wife and as First Lady.
