Outrage After Michelle Obama Does THIS at the White House


……….” The Obama Administration has often been accused of capitulating to hostile foreign states and, in particular, has drawn a great deal of criticism over its actions towards Iran” ……….

“Now, for the second year in a row, the White House has hosted a Nowruz festival, honoring the Iranian New Year. The stated purpose of the festival is to help Americans remember that diversity plays an important role in our country, especially during a time of such “hateful rhetoric.”

“When Barack and I first got here, we committed to opening this place up to as many people from as many different backgrounds as possible — especially folks who have never been through these doors before,” said First Lady Michelle Obama. “We think America is strongest when we recognize our many traditions, when we celebrate our diversity, and we lift each other up.”

She continued, “Right now when we are hearing so much disturbing and hateful rhetoric, it is so important to remember that our diversity has been and will always be our greatest source of strength and pride here in the United States.”

“We are a nation of immigrants and we should cherish the talent and energy and the beautiful traditions and cultures that come with that heritage,” she said, concluding her remarks.

Nowruz is celebrated across the Middle East as well as in parts of Asia and Eastern Europe, marking the Persian New Year and the first day of spring. Persian dancers and Persian cuisine was featured at the White House event………..”

REALLY NOW…………….


GL.........7 1/2 years of............anything Obama is wrong/bad/evil/stupid/underhanded........... What will these folks do with their time when the object of their hate is out of office?

If history gives us any clue.......... after Reagan brought down USSR and communism .......... the RW had no one to direct their hateful energy at.......... so they substituted their emotional driven efforts towards eating each other.......

Will they do the same again? Or will there be a new object/person/idea to hate...................Of course you know...........with out someone to hate the RW would fall apart as an organized group because that no longer would have any purpose to exist........... Hate is the binding glue which make the RW a group of true believers...........


Ponder that a bit.........:shock:

I personaly don't think this was a smart move................. Foreign traditions have no place in the white house........ I can't imagine the 4th of July being celebrated in Tehrān......... nor do I want it to be celebrated there. If the white house didn't celebrate the Nowruz festival..........no one would've noticed, I believe.

Did they, or are they going to, celebrate the Jewish New Year, or is that going to far?

Come on man. Christmas, Easter & New Year's Day are absolutely a part of American culture. I would argue there is NO country that even comes close to the american infatuation with Christmas.
Probably 99% of the people celebrate Easter, New Year's and Christmas. How many people celebrate the Nowruz festival ?

These traditions may have a foreign background, but they're now definitely a part of american culture.

There's a big difference between "recognizing" other cultures, and forced assimilation. I'm a little leery to believe this, considering the source, but Michelle IS an attention ho. I wouldn't put it past her.
