Michelle Obama: “American white racists” ORLY? [update4: API in negotiations with FOX NEWS(?) *yawn*]

October 18, 2008

Update3:
I now believe this entire story is a HOAX.

API should either put up, or shut up.
My post below reflects my thoughts if it were true. Please do keep that in mind when reading. If I am proven wrong I will update accordingly.

Full frontal bigotry. Nuance be damned.

Michelle Obama launches an angry diatribe at African Press International

michelle-obama.jpg

Shocking development: Mrs Obama decides enough is enough: “My husband was born in Hawaii and adopted by his step father, does that make him unpatriotic; she asks”, on a direct telephone to API. – African Press International (API)

Accusing API of colluding with American internet bloggers in an effort to bring down her husband, Mrs Obama said she decided to call API because of what she termed, API’s help to spread rumours created by American bloggers and other racist media outlets in their efforts to damage a black man’s name, saying she hopes African Media was mature enough to be in the front to give unwavering support to her husband, a man Africans should identify themselves with.

When API told her that our online news media was only relaying what the American Bloggers and other media outlets had discovered through their investigations, Mrs Obama was angered and she came out loud with the following: “African press International is supposed to support Africans and African-American view,” and she went to state that, “it is strange that API has chosen to support the racists against my husband. There is no shame in being adopted by a step father. All dirt has been thrown onto my husband’s face and yet he loves this country. My husband and I know that there is no law that will stop him from becoming the president, just because some American white racists are bringing up the issue of my husband’s adoption by His step father. The important thing here is where my husband’s heart is at the moment. I can tell the American people that My husband loves this country and his adoption never changed his love for this country. He was born in Hawaii, yes, and that gives him all the right to be an American citizen even though he was adopted by a foreigner; says Michelle Obama on telefon to API.” […]

That Michelle Obama is one classy lady. Heh. First Lady material hardly.
Memo to Michelle: Just because someone questions Obama’s citizenship DOES NOT make them a racist.
What if Obama were not black? What would you have then? It is pathetic that you feel you need to use the color of Barack’s skin as a weapon.

Pluease.
Why should all blacks support Obama because he is considered to be black?

Blast from the past…
“The GOP, should I be the nominee, I think can say whatever they want to say about me, my track record,” Obama said. If they think that they’re gonna try to make Michelle an issue in this campaign, they should be careful, because that I find unacceptable.”

I hate to break it to him but if there is any truth behind this story then Michelle is fair game. That is the way the chips will fall.

At first I was hesitant to post on this story, questioning the veracity of it.

But….African Press International now claim to have an audio recording of the telephone conversation.

The Recordings:

API has recordings of the conversation between API and Mrs Obama (Shocking development: Mrs Obama decides enough is enough: “My husband was born in Hawaii and adopted by his step father, does that make him unpatriotic; she asks”, on a direct telephone to API., and we confirm that the audio will be released to the public. In the last 24 hours, API has been consulting legal advisers on the way forward in order to avoid being sued by the Obama camp. API has realised that the contents of the tapes if made public may change the political atmosphere in America for ever, especially in the next few days.

Due to enormous reactions received, API now understands the impact of the statements made by Mrs Obama. The American people have reacted in a way we in API would never have expected.

Much more to be found at both links.

Imagine a (God forbid) Obama presidency

Would America have a president whom could never be questioned? About anything?

Folks that is exactly what we are facing if he wins the election. Do not bother speaking up against any actions from his administration. Do not dare criticize any move he may make.

A racist is what you will be. As you are now if you have ever dared to utter a discouraging word against Barack Obama the untouchable one.

And I have a foreboding suspicion it may lead to far more than just a label…

Update 11:40 pm 9-18-08:
The heat has just been turned up on what is quickly becoming a red hot story!
Enough so that the Obama camp has already responded.
Which I personally will disregard. An O camp response means nothing to me they would be expected to denounce the story true or not.

Go figure, just when I began second guessing my decision to post on this. Jeff Schreiber over at America’s Right (who by the way has been a skeptic from the onset) has now admitted he thinks may have been wrong.

I have no reason to be wary of Schreiber’s revelation. So I am taking him for his word.

10:30am

Listen, I’ll be the first to admit that I was wrong. And I think I was wrong.

I was just involved in a telephone conversation with a very reputable source who says there is very, very likely an audiotape showing that Michelle Obama did in fact say what she said.

I cannot say more right now, as to the source, but let’s put it this way — If you want to know something about Barack Obama, you talk to this guy.

KEEP CHECKING HERE!!

Wow just wow.

Update2
The major hurdle that threatened to block the release of the Michelle Obama’s true interview tapes has now been removed.

Posted by africanpress on October 19, 2008

The legal hurdles that API feared in connection with the release of the tape has now been settled. The American people has soon to be treated to the truth about the true personality of their (probably) incoming first Lady.

API is soon to conclude an agreement on which of the media channels in the US is to air the Michelle Obama tapes. This has come about because many news channels have shown great interest in getting the tapes so that they air to the American people before the elections.

Many Americans are waiting and we promise to satisfy their desire very soon. The delay in releasing the tapes is due to two things:

1. The legal issues that may arise after we release the tapes.

This one has now been cleared and API feels safe and is no longer in fear when it comes to a legal battle that may come when the information gets out.

2. Choosing one media channel to air the tapes in the USA.

When we wrote the story, many people contacted us asking for the verification. At the same time, many media outlets have contacted API and would like to be the sole network to air the tapes. What we are finalising now is to come to an agreement with one channel that will have to air the tapes unedited.

After noticing the desire that has been exhibited – to have the tapes out, may be you Americans would like API to air the tape through a particular news channel. Your advice will be appreciated.

We are also seeking to agree with the particular channel that we will finally choose to give the tapes to, that they study the US laws properly so that we are not sued. Some have informed us that there are some states in the country that do not have laws that the Obama’s can use in attacking API. It may be wise that the tapes get aired in such a State to avoid court cases being filed against us.

The important thing we are discussing with the US news networks is if they are ready to take the whole responsibility in case the Obama camp reacts using the courts.

We understand the desperation some people may have due to the delay that has been exhibited by us, but API is interested in being safe after the release of the tapes and this seems to be achieved now.

Some who have been impatient have called us so many names. That does not bother us much because we know we have the information.

When people say API is not known or that it is a small thing, we get surprised. People must never forget that all the huge media networks started somewhere small and became what they are today. Credibility is not our fear because we know we have a true copy of the interview. Failing to bring forth the truth is what would bother us, and yet we know that we will accomplish.

The urgency of the matter is known to API, but we wish to state that we are not served with a situation that will destroy us even if we have to move slow but sure, so that any loopholes that may give anyone a chance to take us to court is closed tightly.

We are about to reach the end of this saga and all those who favour the truth will rejoice. We know we will also hurt many who will see us as a news agency that interfered with the US politics. We believe, however, that where there are two competitors competing against one another one will win and the other will win, in cases of course where a draw is not an option.

It is important now for us to inform the readers that any person or persons sending us comments ¨which contain some bad word or words will not be published. We will only continue to release serious comments with no abusive language.

My latest thought (and believe me I have been wavering back and forth madly) is that I’ll believe it when I hear it. If this whole thing is a hoax I am gonna be pissed.

Yawn…
Michelle Obama tapes’ imminent release approaching: API in a serious negotiation with FOX NEWS on the best way forward

API has an ongoing discussion with FOX NEWS on the best way forward in the process of releasing Michelle Obama tapes to the American people.

API hopes the negotiation will be completed as soon as possible so that the tapes can be made available to FOX NEWS in the next few days and specifically before the voting day – the 4th of November.

I still stand by my “hoax” statement…hearing will be believing.
Take my word, it is not that I do not want this to be true. Quite the contrary I can assure you.

    When will we learn the whole truth about this character, after he’s our Commander-in-Chief?

    I have just left a comment over at African Press International:

    I’m with TexasDarlin and second her bluff.
    (Obviously I meant, I’m with TexasDarlin and second her calling your bluff) 😉

    You can not expect to have dropped a bomb shell such as this and then drag your feet.

    And if it never crossed you all’s minds how much of an impact this would have on the minds of the American people and the election you are naive at best.
    If you have in your possession authentic audio tapes the American people have a right to hear for themselves.

    With all due respect, to put it simply.
    Show your hand or fold.

    Intriguing. Heh.

    Michelle Obama looked out at a St. Paul field house filled with supporters of her husband Monday afternoon and told them: “For me, this is not just politics. It’s personal. It’s personal for me, it’s personal for all of us now.”

    “this is not just politics. It’s personal”

    She’s as imbecilic as her vapid husband. All politics is personal!

    They (API) are continuing to stall and string everyone along. I (now) believe it is a big fat HOAX.
    I would be happy to eat my words if I am wrong, but I do not think I am.
