Michelle Obama Gets Her History Wrong – Immigrants Just Like Founding Fathers, Not ‘Born American’

She has once again exposed her ignorant and foolish ways after giving a recent speech at the National Archives in Washington DC.

Michelle Obama was speaking to newly naturalized Americans when she said “It’s amazing that just a  few feet from here where I’m standing are the signatures of the 56 Founders who put their names on a Declaration that changed the course  of history, and like the 50 of you, none of them were born American – they became American,”

Obama pointed out that the Founding Fathers pledged their lives and risked everything to create the United States of America after signing the Declaration of Independence.

“Just like you’re about to pledge allegiance to our flag, they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to this extraordinary idea that we now know as America — the notion that we are all created equal, endowed with fundamental rights and freedoms that no one can ever take away from us,” she said.

Wow! Thomas Jefferson, who wrote up the Declaration of Independence and signed it, was born in Virginia. Benjamin Franklin was born in Pennsylvania, and John Adams was born in Massachusetts.

The First Lady explained that the Founding Fathers were “Americans-by-choice” just like the newly declared citizens.

“As the newest ‘Americans-by-choice,’ you, too, will play an important part in shaping our history,” she continued.

Immigrants, she explained, were essential to the continued growth of the United States.

“I know this is an exciting, hopeful time for all of you, but it’s also an exciting, hopeful time for our country,” she said. “Because the fact is, America needs you.”

Of the 56 men who signed it, only 8 of them were not born in the United States. You think a Harvard graduate like Michelle would know this….

This was one of a number of errors she made.

    Actually, she’s right, sort of. NONE of them were born in the United States. When they were born, the USA did not exist as a country. They were born in colonies belonging the Great Britain.

    Actually, she is right, and all of you are dead wrong! except for Al right above me. Not a single one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence were born in “The United States of America”, because…wait for it… it didn’t exist yet! It gives me no pleasure to have her back, but she is correct! They were all born in the colonies that were part of the nation of Great Britain, heart of the British Empire. They became citizens when they signed the Constitution, which established our nation, but I don’t think anyone would argue that they became citizen when the Declaration was signed and they took up arms to secure our independence. I hope that her intent was to inspire loyalty and not rebellion, but her retelling of history is indeed accurate. So, all of you who shamed her, jump in quick and delete your posts. Or better yet, post a retraction and apologize! Score points for being magnanimous! Don’t worry, Nancy Pelosi will give us at least 3 doosies by Friday!!
