WASHINGTON (AP) — Michelle Obama on Saturday criticized the kidnapping of scores of Nigerian schoolgirls as an “unconscionable act” carried out by a terrorist group she said is determined to keep them from getting an education — “or grown men attempting to snuff out the aspirations of young girls.”
Taking over the president’s weekly radio and Internet address on the eve of the American holiday for honoring mothers, the first lady said that, like millions of people around the world, she and President Barack Obama are “outraged and heartbroken” over the April 15 abduction of the girls from their dormitory.
“In these girls, Barack and I see our own daughters,” Mrs. Obama said, referring to Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12. “We see their hopes, their dreams and we can only imagine the anguish their parents are feeling right now.” …
“I hope that any young people in America who take school for granted, any young people who are slacking off or thinking of dropping out, I hope they will learn the story of these girls and recommit themselves to their education,” she said. [read]
Listen to the whole thing here.
Wait. Did we just go from hashtagging to nagging these monsters to death, for keeping schoolgirls out of class? Did we just do that? Really? “Don’t take school for granted…”? “In these girls, Barack and I see our own daughters”?
Right, Mooch, those Quaker school marms can be brutal.
Call me cynical, but if you are a barbaric Islamic terrorist known for rape, torture and burning schoolchildren alive, is your victims’ class attendance really a big concern?
Shaming sadistic radical Islamists into submission?
Is it possible to be any shallower?
Why to go, Barry!
If all else fails, sic an angry black woman with a mean grin on ’em.
But #BringOurGirlsHome or something.
