WASHINGTON – In her final speech as first lady on Friday, Michelle Obama singled out young immigrants and Muslims, many of whom express apprehension about President-elect Donald Trump.
“Do not ever let anyone make you feel like you don’t matter, or like you don’t have a place in our American story — because you do,” she said. “Know that this country belongs to you, to all of you. From every background and walk of life. If you or your parents are immigrants, know that you are part of a proud American tradition . . . that has made us the greatest country on Earth.”
Religious diversity is “not a threat to who we are,” she said, “it makes us who we are.”
On the campaign trail, Trump called for a ban on Muslims entering the U.S. and spoke about requiring them to register.
“Whether you are Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Sikh . . . I want our young people to continue to learn and practice those values with pride,” the first lady said.
It’s telling Mrs. Obama used her final speech to tell Muslims this is their country. Presumably she was also reaching out to illegal immigrants and “refugees” since few if any have opposed legal immigration.
Meanwhile, Vera Bergengruen of McClatchy continues the established media’s fake news cycle that helped Trump get elected. We posted on the fake Muslim registry here.
By the way, does anyone remember any other speech by Michelle Obama – other than her declaring she was never proud of America?
