[Michelle Obama] does not exist in the same significant way as do Jeff Zucker, Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg, Tom Dorsey, or Bill Gates.
She cannot control the outcome of presidential elections by shutting down the opposition in favor of those leftist candidates whom she favors. She cannot reconstruct reality for tens of millions to fit a political agenda. Instead, what Michelle says only gains approval because of how the media presents her image and her views. …
Those whom the powerful shed their grace upon are expected to support leftist cultural and political agendas. If they don’t, these individuals, no matter how talented they may be, will be pushed out of public life and badly defamed.
If Michelle or her hubby suddenly started sounding like Clarence Thomas on moral and constitutional questions, they would be cancelled in a nanosecond.
Enjoying the continued good will of the “woke” media and corporate giants demands total compliance with their politics, something we may assume that Michelle, Barack, and Meghan understand as well as do Don Lemon, Maxine Waters, and Al Sharpton.
The reason such figures take the same positions white leftist elites expect of them may be that at some level they comprehend their accessory role.
They are not being showered with fame and fortune to oppose abortion and gay unions or to complain about racialized politics. They are being paid to be an echo chamber for those who enhance their fame and fortune.
