Michelle Obama Suicide Watch

I recently posted an article on Michelle Obama Watch about a blog titled "Michelle Obama Suicide Watch". As a result, a crusade to shut this site down has begun. In my attempts to help get the word out, I am posting my report here as well. Please visit this site and flag it.
------------------------------------------------------------------------


There is a blog titled "Michelle Obama Suicide Watch" that is listening to every word that Michelle Obama speaks.It compares her purported views of America to that of Hell. The author's method is to list quotes from Michelle and define them with one-line labels such as "Motherhood in Hell", "Michelle Identifies Her Demons", and "Michelle's Inferno". This blog's mission can be summed up with one of its own quotes:

"UPDATES FROM HELL

We've been monitoring Michelle's progress since we debuted, and we'll keep posting until she either escapes her Inferno, loses her battle with her demons, or shuts the Hell up"

(Source)

The blogs that have acknowledge/announced "Michelle Obama Suicide Watch" found its contents to be "hilarious" and commends the author for his/her efforts. When those commenting (most of which elect to remain anonymous) on this blog are not "lmao" and "rofl", they can be found concurring with its sentiments or throwing racially flavored sarcasms such as:
"Mee-shell ma bell has said I’m disabled by depression and will kill my self. I bees disabled and must be given SSD ’cause I can’t work." (Source)

Is Michelle simply staying true to her reputation of being "real" or is the disrobing of the country's "flaws" more than it can currently handle? Perhaps, if a little more sugar were added to her words they would be a little easier to digest. You be the judge.

Saw your post on MOW. I immediately flagged that blog. I also did a repost of your MOW entry calling others to flag this hateful blog also. Hope this helps! Thanks for the heads-up.

Just added you to my Sojourning Sisters blogroll.

We now must think like warriors, we have angelic forces at our commands and send down our troops and smite the enemy. Michelle will be first lady.

The comment, “Mee-shell ma bell has said I’m disabled by depression and will kill my self. I bees disabled and must be given SSD ’cause I can’t work," does not appear at MichelleObamaSuicideWatch. It appears on Pat Dollard's blog. Please post a correction.

Thank you.

@sjp and felicity

I have flagged the blog as well. It's definitely time that the madness came to a swift end

Thank you for the information. However, the "source" link below the comment actually does direct readers to the Pat Dollard blog. Is it not working correctly for you? I just tested it. Thanks for your comments.

The original entry states:

When those commenting ... on this blog are not "lmao" and "rofl", they can be found concurring with its sentiments or throwing racially flavored sarcasms such as:

I thought you meant the commenters actually at MichelleObamaSuicideWatch, but apparently you didn't. "Those commenting on this blog" is a close brush with "those commenting at this blog."

Thank you.

In this case, "on" and "at" are interchangeable in my opinion. Providing a link directly after the quote should have cleared up any confusion. Overall, I believe the situation was communicated successfully.

Although, I thank you for commenting and expressing your observations, I would love to hear more about your opinions of the blog Michelle Obama Suicide.

Great post! I guess I should not be so surprised at these attacks on Michelle Obama...but for some reason it stings every time I hear something like this.

Thanks for adding me to your blogroll. I will do the same.

Hi fitness goddess. Welcome to the battlefield. I agree it does sting. I don't know which stings worse, the actual attacks or the fact that they seem to be acceptable.

Wow! I don't know what to say. Folks really hate black women. Please feel free to cross post my entries on the Cowards named Anonymous.

Hi Professor Tracey! Welcome to the battlefield. It's amazing how what many once considered to be a repudiated simmer is now becoming an aggressive boil. I will definitely cross post, thank you for allowing me to do so.

Even the people who post on "Michelle Obama Suicide Watch" don't hate her. They just think she's ridiculous.

Note that 99% of the site is just her own quoted words. There are barely any comments, beyond some snarky titles. She does all the heavy lifting herself.

And for this, half a dozen sites are urging people to join a campaign to get Google to shut down the site? What are you so afraid of?

But you know, she sounded pretty good last night, and she looked FABULOUS. There still will be a problem with the people who will compare what she said last night with what she's been saying for the last six months, but anyone who was seeing her for the first time last night will wonder what all the hooraw was about.
