Michelle’s “Political And Moral Schizophrenia”?


Michelle Obama was a hot commodity in Hollywood last night!

The potential first lady first hit up a fund raiser thrown by CAA honcho Bryan Lourd and meant to bring in some of the West Coast’s gay elite, like Tom Ford, and their money. Then, once that was complete, Obama headed on over to Sam Jackson’s Beverly Hills home, where she spoke to the likes of Magic Johnson and Denzel Washington.

The speeches, according to Patrick Range McDonald, were almost identical, but the Lourd event consisted of some more gay-themed issues, like DOMA and Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. A shift in subject should be expected, because one tends to suit their topic to their audience.

If you’re talking to the gays, you better talk gay.

Ex-gay leader James Hartline disagrees. Mrs. Obama’s ability to refocus her oratory indicates severe political problems. He shrieks that Obama’s appearance at a LGBT delegate lunch and the convention last week only highlights her “moral schizophrenia”:

James Hartline says by talking about faith, motherhood, and basketball one night, and then the following evening calling on homosexual activists to “dismantle the institution of marriage,” the wife of Barack Obama showed she is “suffering from some political and moral schizophrenia.”

“It’s hard to fathom in stretching the parameters of what’s acceptable, that a woman who is going to be America’s First Lady for all of us would decide to give a speech in the convention itself – less than 24 hours after giving this ‘mom-and-apple-pie’ speech – to talk about introducing homosexuality and lesbianism into the military, to legalize it,” Hartline contends.

Hartline goes on to describe Obama as a “radicalized diva,” a summation only a homosexual could make…

      James Hartline is an “Ex” Gay making a mental diagnosis as a person who used to be something and not a person qualified in psychiatry. Some people who project mental illness diagnosies onto others are quite often in need of psychiatric evaluation themselves. A “Radicalized Diva” would be hilarious were it not for the fact that Hartline is a sad individual lulled by the Republican church back-to-the-womb machine. Gays eat Apple pie too, or some used to.

      James Hartline’s use of the psychiatric disorder schizophrenia as a metaphor simply shows his ignorance about mental health and his utter lack of compassion for those who are truly diagnosed with this debilitating disease.

      Schizophrenia is not multiple personality disorder, split personality disorder, or bi-polar disorder. It does not involve the individual living in two seperate worlds or having two distinct identities. It is a false metaphor for a person acting differently in two different situations.

      After such an extreme example of stupidity, anything else the man said can simply be discounted as something coming from a buffoon.

      Someone send him a “Word of the Day” calendar so he can learn how to use words properly. Sadly, most people don’t even know what schizophrenia is or will take the moment required to look it up.

      schiz·o·phre·ni·a
      –noun
      1. Psychiatry. Also called dementia praecox. a severe mental disorder characterized by some, but not necessarily all, of the following features: emotional blunting, intellectual deterioration, social isolation, disorganized speech and behavior, delusions, and hallucinations.
      2. a state characterized by the coexistence of contradictory or incompatible elements.

      The funny thing about his misuse of psychiatric terms (as someone whom works as a social worker in a mental health hospital) is that he obviously missed the memo that the APA no longer considers homosexuality an illness. His supposed diagnosis is bullshit, made up by crackpot and wingnut psychiatrists that have no idea what they’re talking about.

      Great pic of Michelle Omarosa Obama. Also great that she’s such a “hot commodity” in Hollywood, maybe she can get a good deal in some real estate down there while she’s on her empty the pockets of stupid celebrities and homos tour. Of course she’s not going to mention us when she’s talking to other groups. The only reason she is even talking to Gays now is because her hubby’s campaign is in serious need of $. McCain is ahead of him in that department now. Once she empties your wallets you wont hear or see the words Michelle Omarosa Obama and GLBT in the same sentence again.

      Churchill-y, you don’t have friends, do you? It’s just a hunch with all that dated TV references and Hollywood fear and back-and-forth Homophobia. The stock boy at the 7-11 doesn’t count when you go to pick up that Big Slurpee! All the lonely Bloggers, where do they all come from? Oh yeah, that would be Merry Old England? Liverpool is it?

      Okay, that last bit was flippant. But so was making fun of Michele’s sister’s appearance.
