Michelle Obama: "President is racist."

In an all-out attempt to seal the deal for Biden, Michelle Obama has recorded a 24-minute passionate video, accusing President Trump of being an "inexperienced leader," a "president who isn't up for the job," and "lying to the Americans public"---concluding: "So what the president is doing, is once again patently false, it's morally wrong, and yes, it is racist."

She says, "Racism, fear, division---these are powerful weapons and they can destroy this nation if we don't deal with them head-on."

This sum's up the message of the Left.

Some clarity regarding their message.

Be informed, not misled.

Note. The vice-presidential debate is tonight. It's 9 PM to 10:30 PM (ET), 6 PM to 7:30 PM (PT).

The economic cost of the "mostly peaceful" gatherings. 

The former First Lady says it is racist for President Trump to call out the violent riots that have rocked the United States since May because most of the protests have been peaceful.

In the campaign video she made for Joe Biden, Mrs Obama says the violence has been only a "tiny fraction" of the overall protests.

These words may sound familiar because local TV news anchors have been repeatedly beginning their reporting on the demonstration/riots with the words "mostly peaceful."

Words matter. Saul Alinsky knew it, and these folks know it.

She backs up her claims and accusations by claiming: "Research backs it up. Only a tiny fraction of demonstration had any violence at all."

If that's true, and most people who have paid any attention to the news, even the far-left dominated news media, know there has been a lot of violence.

The business owners in cities are very aware of the extent of the destruction by the "peaceful protesters."

So is the insurance industry.

In fact, Axios, not a conservative group, published a report from the insurance industry on the extent of the personal property losses caused by the riots from May 26 to June 8---and the "peaceful" riots continue into October.

The peaceful gatherings that most often "evolve" into declared riots have created damages approaching $1 billion and are expected to reach about $2 billion.

Keep in mind, insurance often does not cover a number of different losses related to riots.

The largest riot losses prior to this year were those of  April and May 1992 in Los Angles with $775 million, followed by the 1980 Miami riots at $65m and the 1965 riots in Los Angles at $44m. 

The dollar cost in real terms--lost revenue, etc., cannot be accurately estimated. How many people have quit going to these cities? What has that cost economically?

Obama's dark picture of America.

Former President Obama always painted a dim picture of America, often apologizing for our past sins, imperfections, and transgressions--- always avoiding the topic of America's exceptionalism.

The first year Barack Obama ran for president, Mrs. Obama said that was the first time she had ever been "proud" of this country.

Their dark view of America isn't new. It's well-rehearsed.

After calling President Trump a liar, Mrs. Obama continued, 

"And when people hear all these lies and crazy conspiracy theories repeated over and over and over, they don't know what to think. With everything going on in their lives, they don't have time to fact check falsehoods being spread throughout the Internet. And even reasonable people might get scared. And one thing this president is really, really good at is using fear and confusion and spreading lies to win."

The darkness she describes includes her own use of fear and confusion. And racism.

She discussed division in the United States by calling on Americans to empathize with those who may not "look like us or vote like us."

"Think about it," she says, "You've worked hard your whole life and for too long you've watched the rich get richer. You lost your farms and your livelihoods to corporate greed, you've seen your beloved towns shattered by joblessness. You watched families destroyed by drug addiction and mental health challenges. All this long before this virus hit."

She's right, much of this did hit long ago. In fact, the decline in our cities was in full sway during the Obama-Biden years, being overseen by fellow far-Left radical mayors and governors.

Mrs. Obama, apparently referring to "white privilege," says "it's frustrating to hear some folks say you've been the beneficiary of privilege, that the color of your skin gives you a head start. That is the reality for far too many hard-working decent Americans."

For those who are still undecided about whom to vote for, she asks: 

"Everyone who is still undecided to think about all those folks like me and my ancestors" who "fought and died and toiled as slaves and soldiers and laborers to help build this country." 

Not only did Michelle Obama appeal to class envy throughout her speech for Biden, but she also appealed to racism.

She spoke of "fears of retribution" for "centuries of injustice"--- the loss of a "job promotion that never comes. A routine traffic stop gone wrong. Maybe a knee to the neck."

With Biden, she claimed, America has a chance to restore "stability" and "integrity." 

"It's within our grasp," she said, "and that's what keeps me going."

The takeaway.

If all these issues were here long "before the virus," is she suggesting Trump was able to create the darkness she sees in his first 36 months in office?

Or, could it be that the dire straights she defines was here during the 8-year Obama-Biden administration? And if so, why didn't Obama-Biden fix everything?

Is she really suggesting that an impaired Biden can do what her husband could not do in 8 years?

The Left is lost in the darkness of their own making.

I know it's been mentioned often, but remember the ad that Ronald Reagan ran asking America if it was "mourning" in America, or "Morning" in America?

It would be informative if all Americans were to look at the next four years and ask ourselves: "Mourning?" Or "Morning?"

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful. Vote.
