Arianna Huffington: Newt's Muse Race Baits Like Newt

Arianna Huffington, the ex-wife of a former neocon Republican Congressman, who is also a billionaire oilman. During the 1990s, she actively campaigned for the impeachment of Bill Clinton, whilst worshipping at the political feet of Newt Gingrich. Indeed, so cosy was she with Newt, that Time magazine referred to her as Newt's muse.

Arianna Huffington is a social climber and an extremely wealthy socialite who is known in the proper world of journalism as a dilettante and a plagiarist.

Arianna Huffington's so-called Damascene conversion from neoconservative Republican to far-out Leftwing Progressive was too sudden to be recognised as sincere, but was bought hook, line and sinker by a shallow media and an even more gullible Progressive public desperate for an online voice to rival Drudge.

Arianna Huffington, since Day One of the Obama Administration, has been ratfucking Progressives and undermining the President's message continuously. She has engaged in ad hominem attacks on his person and has even written snark about the President's daughters.

During the run-up to the 2010 Midterms, Arianna Huffington toured the country, using any and all media to proclaim that, basically, the President was not a friend of the Middle Class. She was even propagating that message as late as November 2011 and even as late as last month.

Of course, Arianna Huffington would know all about the middle class. This is the woman who made her name on the back of unpaid labor, even to the point of being likened to a plantation slaveowner.

Arianna Huffington controls an internet empire, has homes in the Brentwood section of Beverly Hills and in Manhattan and travels exclusively by private jet. She is not known for diversity in hiring those people she actually pays to work for her. Her staff look like charter members of the Young Republicans.

Her actual knowledge of the middle class she champions is sparse, to say the least; but her knowledge of poor people, you could write on the head of a pin and still have space.

So, forgive me, if I take affront to her latest manifestation of Obama Derangement Syndrome: Michelle Obama.

Bloviating on ABC's This Week, she ventured to give the First Lady some "advice" about how to conduct herself in public. You can watch her patronise in the clip below:-


I'd love [Michelle] to be more [like] Eleanor Roosevelt right now, because the country needs an Eleanor Roosevelt who's going to go around and at the same time that she's doing fundraisers in Beverly Hills and Bel Air, she should go to South Central [Los Angeles], I mean, if I were Michelle Obama right now, I would not go anywhere for a fundraiser without going and seeing the places where there is pain, where there is struggle, where there is homelessness, where there is unemployment.

Do you get the idea that the plantation mistress is condescending to give advice to "the help?" Or that this very white and very rich and very entitled woman thinks that the First Lady might be acting just a tad "uppity?" I happen to think that the First Lady, who attained every bit of the success she's enjoyed through honest hard graft, knows more about both the middle class and the poor and working poor than Arianna Huffington could ever claim to know.

And it's almost too coincidental that as Arianna Huffington's pal, Newt Gingrich, has been seriously race-baiting in his Presidential campaign, that the woman who was once referred to as "Newt's muse" takes another leaf from Newt's book to get in some race-baiting, herself.

To put it succinctly, Arianna Huffington knows diddly squat about the middle class. What she knows about the poor, the working poor and poverty in general, is positively nil. Because whilst people like Arianna Huffington treat the middle class with condescending disdain, she and her ilk cross the street and run a mile from a poor person, for fear of catching cooties.

I can tell you, she caught far worse from Newt.

  1. Since Arianna has a house in Brentwood why doesn't she go to "the places where there is pain, where there is struggle, where there is homelessness, where there is unemployment?" It's easier for her to go to South Central than it is for MB, and besides, Michelle Obama resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. Arianna isn't thinking about the security precautions that would be necessary for our FL to visit South Central, or the RW outrage about the expense. MB can't spit without being attacked!! The Lord knows that I detest hypocrites, and Arianna is one, because she wants Michelle Obama to go where she wouldn't be caught dead!
