Marie Antoinette in the White House
Daniel Greenfield calls for the end of taxpayer slavery to fund the lavish plantation lifestyle of the current Democrat occupants of the White House. He doesn’t mention the Clintons, but he should. Hillary and Bill have funded their Versailles lifestyle by selling out America to her enemies by accepting bribes, aka speaking fees, from Russia and the jihadi Gulf states.
At the DNC, Michelle Obama put on her victimhood hat one more time and declared, “I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves.”
But that’s too past tense. …Michelle Obama lives a life that is more lavish and luxurious than that of the average plantation owner. She has 26 staffers that are part of a White House staff of thousands. … Compare that to 12 servants for Thomas Jefferson.
… And working for her is a Marie Antoinette experience. “The First Lady having the wrong pencil skirt on Monday is just as big of a f___ up as someone speaking on the record when they didn’t mean …,” one former staffer said.
Michelle’s…luxurious lifestyle, is built by taxpaying slaves who are forced to turn over their money to fund her pleasures. She spent more money on one night in Morocco than the average American family will see in five years.
In Dublin, Michelle Obama and her entourage took a sightseeing trip that cost over $250,000. … American slaves paid for it with their blood, sweat and toil.
Maintaining the Obama lifestyle cost $1.4 billion a few years ago. It’s unknown what it costs today.
Obama’s White House parties cost anywhere from $200,000 at the cheap end to over $500,000. Americans have no more freedom to decide whether to pay for another Obama vacation or event than slaves did in deciding how to serve their masters and mistresses.
All they can do is watch from a distance while their masters stuff their faces, … and then make them work to pay for it.
… Slaves built the Obama lifestyle. Slaves who struggle to get by. Who scrimp and save to have a few hundred dollars on hand in case of an emergency. That’s the cost of a single dish at a dinner to their masters in the White House. …
America’s slaves have watched the nation’s wealth become concentrated around the Washington Versailles. At the peak of Obama’s misrule, the Beltway area boasted 7 of the 10 wealthiest counties in the country. Obama won 8 of the 10 wealthiest counties in the country in the last election.
… Government, like slavery… claims to civilize its dependents. In reality it exploits them. It promises them security in exchange for freedom. It takes away the products of their toil and then tells them that they didn’t build that. It claims a false moral authority to exploit them. (snip)
Slavery was based on the notion that some people are superior to others. That same idea runs through Obama’s speeches. It is the lifeblood of the twisted thing that the left has turned liberalism into.
… It is unjust that a class of parasites claiming to be public servants can draw unlimited amounts of money on the credit of people trying to make ends meet. It is unjust that Michelle Obama can own hundreds of millions of people as slaves.
Our entire crony capitalist system, Democrat and Republican alike, has become a kleptocracy approaching par with third-world hell-holes. This is the way a great country is raided by its elite.
