Michelle Obama, Holder Cancel Graduation Speeches

From the Associated Press:

New date for first lady’s Kansas graduation speech

By JOHN MILBURN and DARLENE SUPERVILLE | April 24, 2014

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Michelle Obama is rearranging plans for a speech before graduating high school seniors in Kansas in the face of protests that her appearance at a combined graduation ceremony for five schools would limit seating for families and friends.

Right. (Snort.)

She had accepted the Topeka public school district’s invitation to speak May 17 at the combined ceremony to mark that day’s 60th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Brown v. Board of Education, outlawing school segregation. The case originated in Topeka.

Any excuse to pick at the scab of racism.

But a furor over what the district considered an honor erupted after plans for Mrs. Obama’s address were announced.

Wait. The lead of this article claimed it was a matter of limited seating.

Under a new plan worked out by the district, the first lady will speak on May 16 at a "senior recognition day" ceremony at the same 8,000-seat arena where the combined ceremony was to be held. The combined ceremony is being scrapped, and the five schools will hold separate graduation exercises instead…

We predict a lot of empty seats, unless attendance is mandatory.

The school district said each student will get one ticket and up to six for family members for the first lady’s speech, the same allotment originally planned for the combined graduation ceremony. And now that Mrs. Obama will no longer speak at a graduation, seating won’t need to be limited due to concerns over her security during graduation events…

What a laff. It’s clear this had nothing to do with the number of seats. The students and parents didn’t want to be the studio audience for another racial harangue from her majesty.

Meanwhile, we have this from the Washington Free Beacon:

Holder Cancels Graduation Speech Amid Protests

By Alana Goodman | April 24, 2014

Attorney General Eric Holder canceled a speech to a graduating class of police cadets in Oklahoma City on Thursday, after crowds of Oklahomans flocked to the ceremony to protest his appearance.

Protest organizers said Holder’s planned speech to the law enforcement graduates was “inappropriate,” and argued that the attorney general has failed to uphold the law himself.

Pickers of nits!

“A lot of people just felt that it was very inappropriate for this man, with his track record, to speak to law enforcement officers that demand and expect to be backed up by the government working on behalf of the citizens, not against the citizens,” State Rep. Mike Turner (R.), who is running for U.S. congress, told the Washington Free Beacon.

Turner said Holder has flouted the law when it comes to illegal immigration, the “Fast and Furious” gunrunning scandal, and the Second Amendment…

And that is just for starters. There is also his lack of enforcement of our drug laws and countless others.

The Oklahoma City protest made national news Thursday afternoon, after Holder backed out of the speech shortly before the graduation ceremony began. Holder’s office told the Washington Times that the last-minute cancelation was due to a scheduling issue…

Which is almost as believable as Michelle’s ‘limited seating’ excuse.

    My guess is they’ll bus warm bodies in from elsewhere to fill those seats. Hello, OFA? We needs us some seat-fillers.

    Racists.

    They’re all racists.

  3. Holder backed out of the speech shortly before the graduation ceremony began. Yet they say it was a scheduling error. Harkens back to Marsha Marsha Marsha… Something suddenly came up.

    It made national news Thursday afternoon? Really? How could I have missed that? (It was a 5 second screen crawl after the little blue pill commercial and before the latest Justin Bieber update)

    Holder was replaced by an African American Judge Vickie Miles-LaGrange who ignored and over-ruled Oklahoman’s landslide vote by the state’s people to Ban Shariah Law in Court.

    The Judge Miles-laGrange sided with CAIR’s lawsuit in spite of them being deemed a terrorist group by the FBI in 2008
    So, they replaced Holder with a Judge who ignored the voters, and believes Muslims should have their own court system. She was appointed by Bill Clinton

    Question: In their grueling 7 months trainings were the 40 police cadets taught not to interfere if a Muslim man is beating his wife and children they should not interfere?

    Barenakedislam: OUTRAGEOUS! Federal Appeals Court rules AGAINST Oklahoma legislature-approved/governor-signed ban on Sharia Law pur39760125a1d95c05A proposed amendment to Oklahoma’s state constitution that would have prevented state courts from considering sharia (Islamic) and international law was struck down by a ‘dhimmi’ leftist federal judge on Thursday. This amendment was overwhelmingly approved by Oklahoma voters in 2010.

    May come a day in this country where these police officers won’t respond to a Muslims beating a Christian family member to death.
