Former first lady Michelle Obama has joined her husband in trying to whip up hysteria among voters of color in advance of November’s critical midterm elections.
Mrs. Obama has partnered with BET (Black Entertainment Television) in a drive to increase turnout among female African-American voters, a demographic that Democrats are desperate to motivate if they are to have any hope at all of surfing in on that “blue wave” that will allow them to impeach President Trump.
Using the hashtag #BlackGirlsRock, the ex-FLOTUS appeared in a video that is making the rounds on Twitter.

Former first lady Michelle Obama has teamed up with Black Entertainment Television to film a PSA calling on women of color to vote.
In the one-minute video, which the network shared Sunday night on Twitter, Obama speaks about “the power and importance of casting our votes and making our voices heard” while reminding voters of the “consequences” when they don’t vote.
“We’ve all seen the difference we can make when we choose to cast our ballots and we’ve seen the consequences when we don’t bother to show up to the polls,” she says in the video.
Obama calls on viewers to encourage their sisters, children and members of their congregations to register to vote through the nonpartisan initiative When We All Vote, of which she is a co-chair.
“Women of color know how to get things done for our families, our communities, and our country,” Obama says in the video. “When we use our voices, people listen. When we lead, people follow.”
It’s a pretty pathetic commentary on the state of the Democratic party that they have to resort to this divisive garbage but with a booming economy, record low black unemployment and growing dissatisfaction with the party’s direction it is imperative to keep as many people of color locked safely inside the gates of the Democrat plantation.
The BET message is a lot less incendiary than the dog whistle rhetoric that her husband has been spouting as he hits the campaign trail. King Barack of Obamastan has already spouted the sick and beyond the pale innuendo that the 63 million Americans who voted for President Trump are akin to Nazis and he’s just getting warmed up.
The game that the Obamas are playing is cynical and disgusting but that is who they are.
