With the Democratic National Convention in such disarray, desperate Democrats are looking for anything to cheer over. Despite protests, disruptions, and demonstrations within and without the convention center, they try to pretend the event has gone well.
Most speakers were booed when they mentioned Hillary Clinton, even a supposed reverend who went up to pray. Chants of “Lock her up!” alongside chants for Bernie Sanders could be heard across the convention floor.
One of the few bright spots liberals are clinging to is an early speech from Michelle Obama. They’ve been gushing over her empty words like they came from Moses. Yet a simple examination of her speech will reveal just how contradictory the first lady has been.
From Allen B West:
For example, her claim that their motto is, “when they go low, we go high” sounds lovely, doesn’t it?
Except it’s not true to what we’ve seen from the Obamas. Here’s one example.
"When they go low, we go high," – M. Obama, Philly 2016
“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” – B. Obama, Philly 2008

And yeah, not sure how the Obamas would define the actions of the Black Lives Matter movement, whose movement the Obamas openly support and condone — in which numerous police officers have been brutally murdered and injured, businesses have been burned and more — as “going high.”
But, yep, it sounds good.
And of course there is obligatory jab at Trump’s famous “Make America Great Again” slogan, when she said “Don’t let anyone ever tell you this country isn’t great.” Um, Michelle, weren’t you the person who said a few years ago: “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am proud of my country”? Doesn’t seem to me that you thought America was great for a long time.
But that’s okay. Say whatever you want. It doesn’t have to be true, so long as it sticks with the Democrats’ false narrative. The country is in shambles. We’re divided economically, racial, and socially. We need strong leadership to get us back on track.
The Democrats are only offering us empty words.
