First Lady Michelle Obama Being Bullied

Disparaging remarks and slurs directed at the First Lady by right wing political leaders is bullying and setting a bad example for the youth of our nation.
 
Jan. 13, 2012 - PRLog -- Foster City, CA - As the civil rights organization working to end discrimination based on body size, NAAFA would like to remind our nation's right wing political leaders that hateful slurs and disparaging remarks about First Lady, Michelle Obama's body is bullying.  

One of our nation's lawmakers made a remark about the size of the posterior of the First Lady of the United States of America in a public place where it could be overheard and reported.  A former presidential hopeful, once a fat person himself, called the First Lady "Mooochelle" on public radio.  Taunting is a form of bullying.

Our nation is spending millions of taxpayer dollars on campaigns to end bullying in our schools while the leaders of our country openly and publicly bully our First Lady.  This has to stop!  If these individuals cannot set good examples for the children of our nation, they do not deserve to be leaders!

NAAFA calls upon these individuals to grow up.  Act like adults.  Apologize to First Lady, Michelle Obama, and to the people of this nation.  Tell our children NOT to follow your example but to learn to accept one another and treat everyone with respect and dignity without regard to body size or shape.
