Mean Flotus Declines Chance For Heart-To-Heart Chat With Heckler With Lame 'I'm Talking Here' Excuse

News

Angry Black Lady Michelle Obama decided she is just kind of tired of hecklers Tuesday, and told a protester at a private fundraiser in DC that she wasnot really in the mood to be interrupted. When LGBT activist Ellen Sturtz demanded that President Obama sign an executive order banning discrimination against gays in federal contracting, the FLOTUS seemed unappreciative of the input, according to pool reporter Amanda Terkel:


Most notable part of the event was an interruption from a protester about 12 minutes into the 20-minute speech. A pro-LGBT rights individual standing at the front began shouting for an executive order on gay rights. (Pool did not hear exactly what.)

“One of the things I don’t do well is this,” replied FLOTUS to loud applause. She left the lectern and moved over to the protester, saying they could “listen to me or you can take the mic, but I’m leaving. You all decide. You have one choice.”

Crowd started shouting that they wanted FLOTUS to stay.

Conservative blogs were torn on how to report the incident, because on the one hand Michelle Obama is an imperious witch who squelches free speech, but on the other hand they hate LGBT activists too. How to choose, how to choose?

The Daily Caller's Jamie Weinstein decided to split the difference, praising Obama for not taking any shit, while using a headline that got across that vital "uppity" flavor:

Don’t you dare protest Michelle Obama: Michelle Obama for the win... [summary snipped]

Whether you love her or less-than-love her, you have to give her kudos for not tolerating left-wing hysterics.

Besides, they could be confident that their commenters would provide the necessary Wookie and Marie Antoinette lines, ha-ha!

The protester is lucky she didn't get her nose, mouth, and hands bit off by michelle. That is the way an enraged chimp really attacks.

(Totally not racist, though, because liberals depicted Dubya as a chimp, too. Monkeymonkeymonkey. Feh, so tired of this dumb argument.)

For her part, Sturtz says she was astonished when the First Lady turned green, roared, picked up a car, and threw it across the Potomac:

“She came right down in my face,” Sturtz said. “I was taken aback.”

Sturtz said she told Obama she was happy to take the microphone to plead her case, which, Sturtz said, appeared to fluster the first lady.

“I said I want your husband to sign the executive order,” Sturtz said. “Her husband could sign this order tonight and protect 22 percent of the work force in this country.”

Yep. That Michelle Obama really needs to learn something about civility. Yr Wonkette is apparently part of the aristocracy now, seeing as how we generally think that the featured speakers at events should be assumed to have priorities over the very urgent pleadings of audience members who are not on the program, and that while, sure, interrupting is a legitimate form of protest, you really do not get to act all surprised and butthurt that the First Lady didn't hand you the goddamned microphone.

Very iffy audio of the encounter, via Mediaite:

Ever since Ruth Bader Ginsburg successfully underwent surgery for lung cancer, conservative sites and message boards have been trafficking in a ridiculous theory that she is actually dead and that there is some kind of Weekend at Bernie's-esque conspiracy to pretend she is still alive.

Now, one would think that her recent public appearance at a concert held in her honor would have put this to rest. Alas, it did not. Rather, the "researchers" (as they hilariously call themselves) determined that the concert was actually her funeral.

No. Really. That was a thing.

I admit that I gave this a lot more thought than I should have. Like, how did they think this would go? How long did they imagine this would go on for? Why would they risk having a full on funeral concert, open to the press? Wouldn't they just have not bothered to have a funeral at all? And what did these people think was going to happen when it was announced that she died for real? Or did they think that we were going to pretend that she is immortal and thus never announce her death? It's so confusing!

Being very up to date on the "RBG is secretly dead!" nonsense, I was very curious about which way the "anons" would go with this when they announced her return to work on Friday. They did not disappoint!

Yesterday afternoon, 45-year-old Gary Martin of Aurora, Illinois was let go from his job at the Henry Pratt Company, a factory that manufactures water valves. In response, he took out a pistol with a laser scope and began shooting at random. He killed five people and injured six others who were just trying to make it through the day at the water valve factory, and then the police killed him.

His mother said he was "stressed out." He "seemed fine" according to the clerk at the Circle K where he bought his cigars that morning. His neighbor thought he was a nice guy. Some people were surprised, others were not.

This kind of thing used to be shocking, but it's a story we're used to now. It gets repeated at least once a month. It's just what happens now, and we can't do anything about it because we can't do anything about gun control. This is, the Right has decided, just the price we all have to pay so they can stockpile guns for funsies, and take sexy pictures of guns shoved in their pants. This is the blood that waters their special tree of liberty.

It's fucking exhausting. And stupid. We shouldn't have to live this way. No one should have to live this way. But we do. Why? Because some day some yahoos might want to overthrow the government, which is (of course) a completely legal thing to do, and their "right" to do that must be protected. So it's literally just never, ever going to stop.

Gary Martin, like most other mass shooters, also had a history of violence against women. In 1994, in Mississippi, he was convicted for stabbing one. He should not have been able to get a gun after that. I would like to know how and why he was able to get that pistol with the laser scope that he killed five people with yesterday afternoon. Maybe someone gave it to him. Maybe he bought it somehow. Maybe someone forgot to do a background check. Maybe he bought it from someone who didn't have to do a background check.

I am so goddamned tired of writing this article. I am out of things to say.

UPDATE:

Martin apparently bought the gun after successfully applying for an Illinois state Firearms ID. That license was revoked after he applied for a concealed carry license and was rejected due to his prior felony conviction in Mississippi, but no one bothered to see if he still had a gun.

Via USA Today:

"During the fingerprinting and background process it was discovered that he had a felony conviction for aggravated assault out of Mississippi," [Police Chief Kristen] Ziman said. "It should be noted that this conviction would not have shown up on a criminal background check conducted for an FOID card."

That seems like it might be a problem, no?

It has also since been revealed that Martin had a domestic battery arrest in 2008 in Aurora.
