Well, I guess it’s now our first lady’s turn at the Islamist bat — although I can’t say I’m surprised.
Michelle Obama took her show on the road to the UK today, and spoke before the Mulberry School for Girls where she had an eye-popping admission.
According to Breitbart, The Mulberry School for Girls, where Mrs Obama delivered her patronising ‘Let Girls Learn’ speech, is described in multiple Ofsted school inspection reports as having “nearly all students… of Bangladeshi heritage, with a very small minority from other backgrounds, including White British, Pakistani and African.”
And while the school has been rated as “very good” for a number of years, it has also played host to hard-left conferences sponsored by groups such as ‘War on Want’, which is closely tied to anti-Israel activities in the United Kingdom, the ‘Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament’ which has its roots in communist sympathising, and indeed the European Parliament.
The school is located in the neighborhood of Tower Hamlets where nearly 1 in 5 residents speak Bengali as their first language rather than English, according to the 2011 statistics.
Speaking to the crowd of hijab-clad girls, Mrs. Obama said, “When I look out at all these young women, I see myself. In so many ways your story is my story.” And then went on to praise the local area, which is known for being a hot bed of Islamist activity and sympathy.
She described Tower Hamlets as a place where “families are tight knit… with strong values”. Perhaps this is true. There has certainly been evidence of a very “tightly knit” cabal attempting to rule Tower Hamlets. And there are certainly strong values too. Almost half of Britain’s 1300 cases of Female Genital Mutilation last year were from London. No prizes for guess which areas these emanate from.
Now you cannot tell me this is not a calculated move by Mrs. Obama. For whom is her message aimed? Does she say stuff like this just to see if it will turn conservatives’ knickers in a twist (because it does)? Or is it a not-too-subtle wink-wink to the Islamic world?
I know, it’s completely Islamophobic of me to report this, but of ALL the schools and all the neighborhoods to whom Michelle Obama could have chosen to speak, she picked THIS one?
