Michelle Obama tells schoolgirls to view pandemic as a ‘great blessing’

 

Michelle Obama told London schoolgirls to view the pandemic as a “great blessing” and an opportunity for growth, as she discussed the impact of Covid-19.

The former first lady spoke to pupils from Elizabeth Garrett Anderson (EGA) School in Islington and Mulberry School for Girls in Tower Hamlets, to mark the publication of the younger reader edition of her memoir Becoming.

During the hour-long discussion via Zoom on Wednesday afternoon, Mrs Obama said that the girls should see the pandemic as an opportunity to learn about how to navigate through life and “things that you’re not necessarily prepared for.”

“I would view this as a great blessing to all of you, right. Because right now you’re learning how to get through something hard and uncomfortable and unpredictable,” she said.

“And as I’ve told my girls, that’s what life is. No matter how high you get, or how smart you are, or how successful, life will throw you things that you’re not necessarily prepared for. And if you know how to get yourself through it, you will succeed.”

She also discussed mentorship, sisterhood, motivation and leadership.

"Conversations like these keep me optimistic. Meeting all of you, watching your growth,” she said.

“Listening to how thoughtful and insightful you are, how resilient and determined you’ve been, how strong and capable you are.”

Jo Dibb, executive headteacher at EGA, told The Times that viewing the pandemic as something that will help us in the future is a “really positive way of looking at things.”

“If we just spend our time just blaming everything and making excuses and thinking, ‘Well, I don’t have to do well at school because there’s a pandemic’, then we’ve lost anyway, so I think that’s such great advice,” she said.

Mrs Obama first visited EGA School in 2009 and has stayed in touch with the school ever since.

In 2011, she took a group of the school’s pupils to Oxford University when she gave a talk to Christ Church College, and in 2012 she welcomed 12 EGA pupils to the White House.

In 2018, she returned to do another event at the EGA school when she visited the UK for the publication of her memoir.

 

In Becoming, Michelle Obama said of her 2009 visit: “I wasn’t fully prepared, though, to feel what I did when I set foot inside Elizabeth Garrett Anderson School...They were me, as I’d once been. And I was them, as they could be. The energy I felt thrumming in the school had nothing to do with obstacles. It was the power of nine hundred girls striving…”

In 2015, she visited Mulberry School for Girls to launch her “Let Girls Learn” campaign, speaking about the importance of girls’ education.

She welcomed Mulberry School pupils to the White House later that year.

Nolte: Woke Gestapo Oppose Naming School After ‘Deporter’ Barack Obama


“The country’s first Black President and First Lady, Barack and Michelle Obama, is one of the top three choices for the school’s new name, but is drawing opposition in the area with a large Latinx population,” local media reported.


“I will not be part of renaming a school after someone who did not and does not represent the undocumented community,” one school board member, who claims he was an illegal alien as a child, said.

“Waukegan activist Julie Contreras works with a group that runs shelters for [illegal alien] children at the U.S./Mexico border. She said former President Obama failed to deliver on promises to help the immigrant population.”

Here’s my favorite quote: “If you’re removing the name of Thomas Jefferson – one oppressor – the name of Obama is another oppressor and our families do not want to see that name.”

So the Woke Gestapo are removing Thomas Jefferson’s name from this school, the man who wrote the Declaration of Independence, a Founding Father, our country’s third president, and Barack Obama, America’s first black president, is not a woke-enough replacement for these fascist lunatics.

These fascists are mad because Obama grudgingly deported illegal aliens. They’re mad because he followed the law. They’re mad because he did what the leader of every country does, and that’s expel people who sneak in illegally.

And he wasn’t even that great at deporting people. He created the unconstitutional DREAMer program that violates the law by allowing certain illegals to not get deported. If it were up to him, Obama would have opened our southern border and flooded the whole country with illegal Democrats… And he’s still not woke enough for the Woke Supremacists.

I love it.

God forgive me, I love it. Watching these blacklisting Nazis tear into each other, especially the oh-so-precious Barack Obama, makes my day.

Also getting tossed out is former first lady Michelle Obama. Her name is supposed to go up on one of these schools, as well.

Overall, though, how stupid is all this? Erasing history? I attended Thomas Jefferson Elementary School for five years, and I still oppose slavery.

All I know is this… History has never-ever-ever-ever looked kindly on censors, blacklisters, fascists, book burners, and bullies. These monsters are always-always-always history’s villains, and deservedly so. One of my primary goals in life is to live long enough to see this happen to this current crowd.

These are evil, vile people, but when they go after Michelle and Barry Obama, I have to admit I kinda love ’em.
