Video released of Michelle Obama reacting to heckler, compared to Lady MacBeth by Glenn Beck

Michelle Obama threatened to walk out of a Washington fundraiser Tuesday night after a heckler interrupted her speech.

Now the video has gone viral on conservative websites as the talking heads target the First Lady. The visuals change the text, Glenn Beck desribing her as Lady MacBeth on his radio show.

Obama was roughly 12 minutes into her 20-minute remarks at a home in Northwest Washington, a woman (a gay activist for GetEqual) at the front of a crowd of about 200 people began shouting about gay rights.

“One of the things I don’t do well is this,” she said, to loud applause. She said the protester could “listen to me, or you can take the mic, but I’m leaving. You all decide. You have one choice.”

The crowd yelled for Mrs. Obama to stay, with one woman nearby telling the protester, “You need to go!” Attendees escorted the protester out as she yelled further, at one point identifying herself as a “lesbian looking for federal equality before I die.”

“Heckling at fund-raisers is a fairly common practice, but it’s almost always directed at the president, which is why Michelle Obama must have been somewhat taken aback,” writes Adam Martin in New York Magazine’s Daily Intelligencer.

    Brandon Jones,

    SIR, YOU AND Towleroad ARE FANTASTIC EXAMPLES OF WHY PEOPLE CLAIM INDIVIDUAL MEDIA OUTLETS HAVE BIAS. Mr. Jones, I READ YOUR ARTICLE BECAUSE I HAD READ THIS STORY ON, Towleroad – A HOMOSEXUAL WEBSITE.

    NOW, Mr. Jones, YOU WROTE YOUR ARTICLE IN A MANNER WHICH MAKES HOMOSEXUALS LOOK LIKE PEOPLE WHO HAVE PSYCHOLOGICAL ISSUES. Mr. Jones, YOU DID NOT MENTION THAT THIS ARTICLE HAD A RELATIONSHIP WITH HOMOSEXUALITY UNTIL YOU WROTE, “lesbian looking for federal equality before I die.” Mr. Jones, I ASSUME YOU ARE HETEROSEXUAL; Y-O-U KNEW ANY HETEROSEXUAL WHO READ THAT WOULD CONSIDER IT TO BE A “SUICIDAL-TYPE” STATEMENT. [Of course, American Psychiatric Association says homosexuals often commit suicide].

    OF COURSE, I DO NOT KNOW WHOSE ARTICLE IS CORRECT. IN AN EARLIER COMMENTARY, I TYPED [sic}, “I BELIEVE Global Dispatch IS OWNED AND OPERATED BY CAUCASIANS.” I RECEIVED NO RESPONSE – THAT WAS QUITE TELLING; CAUCASIANS WOULD HAVE BEEN INSULTED AND WOULD HAVE REPLIED. NOW, I BELIEVE Global Dispatch IS OWNED AND OPERATED BY NEGROES. [Only Negroes would have on the front cover of their publication a large article with “elitist-style” photographs (in color) of the Kenyan’s Morehouse Speech]. THE FACT THAT Global Dispatch PLACES First Lady Michelle IN A “good light” AND HOMOSEXUALS IN A “bad light” ILLUSTRATES THE NEGRO COMMUNITY’S LOVE FOR The Obamas AND HATRED OF HOMOSEXUALS – C-L-E-A-R PROOF OF Global Dispatch BEING A NEGRO MEDIA-OUTLET.

      You like a racist yourself putting that and your sexuality first in most of your posts

        “Paula,”

        AS AN ATHEISTIC NEGRO-MALE HOMOSEXUAL WHO SUPPORTS LIBERTARIAN/REPUBLICAN POLITICIANS AND FOR ABOUT ELEVEN YEARS WAS ON THE “BOY” SIDE OF BOY/MAN LOVE, I FEEL COMPELLED TO HIGHLIGHT MY VALUES IN EVERY POST BECAUSE “god-fearing” CAUCASIANS ARE RUNNING AROUND WONDERING WHY OTHERS WANT TO EXPLODE BOMBS, ETC., ON AMERICAN SOIL. IF CAUCASIAN-AMERICANS WERE NOT OBSESSED WITH WHAT IS THE ACCEPTABLE AGE FOR MALES TO START HAVING SEX, WHAT IS THE INTENT OF THOSE WHO PRACTICE ISLAM AND WHY PEOPLE SHOULD OWN FIREARMS WITH MULTIPLE-CAPACITY MAGAZINES – THEREBY, NOT ALLOWING PEOPLE TO ENJOY THEIR LIVES ACCORDING TO THEIR OWN STANDARDS, I WOULD HAVE NO NEED TO DO MY THANG.
