Aquí los hechos: No, Michelle Obama ... La Casa Blanca no fue construida por esclavos, la mayoría de los constructores no eran esclavos. Uno de los tantos disparates de Michelle Obama que la prensa liberal calla
No, Michelle…The White House Was NOT Built by Slaves. Here Are The FACTS!!
Michelle Obama is famous for stating she lives in “the house that slaves built” when referring to the White House, but her statement is a largely a lie. However, like all democrats, she will never let facts get in the way of a good story.
Liberal media was quick to jump on the Obama bandwagon for the statement and virtually applauded it, but there is just one problem. It’s a false sentiment.
Here are the facts…. From Top Right News:
First, the White House was not built solely — or even primarily — by slaves.
Most of the labor force consisted of local White laborers and artisans (from Maryland and Virginia) and a number of immigrants from Ireland, Scotland, and other European nations.
As the project neared completion — the lime-based whitewashing that gives the building its iconic appearance…slaves were indeed added to the mix.
But once again, facts get in the way of the Obama’s preachy race-baiting.
That’s because the U.S. government actually paid the slaves who worked on the White House.
One slave — Philip Reid — was paid directly, a sum of $1.25 per day ($31 per day in 2016 dollars). Is it technically “slave labor” — if you are paid?
Virginia Kruta of IJR adds these important points:
This is in addition to the fact that Mrs. Obama is herself a multi-millionaire, along with her Presidential husband, a graduate of Harvard University who is herself a walking symbol of the success that can come to anyone who is willing to work hard and apply one’s talent in America.
In other words, even as Michelle Obama herself rebukes the nation’s history of racism, she is a living example that America has done much to overcome it.
Kruta also refutes the offensive comment of Mrs. Obama that The Founders could “never imagine” a black person in The White House, when many specifically wanted to eliminate racial differences:
“The Deleted Passage in The Declaration of Independence” written by Thomas Jefferson is but one example, though later removed to win the signatures of southern colonies:
The infamous three-fifths clause of The Constitution, although often ignorantly condemned as dehumanizing of slaves, was a strategic measure to erode the power of the southern states in The Congress, and ultimately lead to the slaves’ emancipation.
A separate clause in The Constitution sought to eliminate the slave trade to American shores in twenty years’ time.
However, Barack and Michelle Obama will NEVER let the facts get in the way of their racial divisiveness in America.
UN EJEMPLO DE MANIPULACIÓN PERIODÍSTICA DE LA PRENSA LIBERAL A LAS PALABRAS DE BILL O´REALLY
Bill O’Reilly desata furor al defender el uso de esclavos en la construcción de la Casa Blanca
Al decir que los esclavos que construyeron la Casa Blanca estuvieron "bien alimentados", el presentador desató la ira de miles de personas.

Una lluvia, pero de fuego, azotó las redes sociales ayer cuando sus usuarios reaccionaron ardientemente a los comentarios de Bill O’Reilly, quien defendió el uso de esclavos en la construcción de la Casa Blanca.
El desafortunado comentario surgió como respuesta al discurso que diera la Primera Dama de Estados Unidos, Michelle Obama, durante la Convención Nacional Demócrata. Ella dijo: “Es la historia de la que soy testigo todos los días, cuando despierto en una casa que fue construida por esclavos, y veo a mis hijas, dos bellas jóvenes norteamericanas negras diciéndole adiós a su padre, el Presidente de Estados Unidos”.
Enseguida O’Reilly contestó en su programa The O'Reilly Factor: “Los esclavos que estaban allí estaban bien alimentados y tenían alojamientos decentes proporcionados por el gobierno”.
Shonda Rhimes, una prominente productora afroamericana de televisión contestó: "La idiotez nunca deja de sorprenderme. Pruebe la esclavitud, Bill. Háganos saber lo buena que la comida es cuando usted está encadenado".
La escritora y abogada Rabia Chaudry, envío un Twitter ofreciéndole al periodista “alojamiento y comida decentes” a cambio de que se convierta en su esclavo.
The First Lady Welcomes 50 New Americans at the National Archives

The First Lady Speaks at Naturalization Ceremony
This morning, First Lady Michelle Obama welcomed 50 new Americans in a naturalization ceremony at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.
"This is an exciting day," the First Lady said in her remarkshttp://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2014/06/18/remarks-first-lady-naturalization-ceremony, "and it's just wonderful that I can be among the first to congratulate you on becoming American citizens."
Only a few feet from where she spoke was the Declaration of Independence -- and as she noted, none of the 56 Founders who signed the Declaration were born American, "they became American."
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.
People come from across the globe to see these documents, to read the names and signatures of the very first “Americans-by-choice,” because they know that this room holds the first chapter of our shared history. And today, it holds the next chapter of our story, as well.

The First Lady also explained to the newly naturalized Americans the important role they will play in shaping America's history. "I know this is an exciting, hopeful time for all of you," she said, "but it's also an exciting, hopeful time for our country. Because the fact is, America needs you."
Immigration is at the heart of how we developed as a nation. In every generation, immigrants have earned their place as part of “We the People.” With the exception of just a few ethnicities, every person in this country can trace their history back to a parent, or a grandparent, or a great-grandparent, or an ancestor who made that choice to be part of this country.
And today, much of our success is because we still very much are a nation of immigrants. Immigrants start roughly one in four of our new businesses. About 30,000 permanent residents serve in our military. And according to one study, over the past 50 years, more than a quarter of our Nobel Laureates based in the U.S. have been foreign-born.
So in many ways, it is because of, not in spite of, our immigrant population that we grow stronger every single day.
Mrs. Obama reiterated that although the debate continues in Washington over fixing our broken immigration system, the President has made it his top legislative priority and will not give up the fight.
"This fight isn't just about abstract principles," she said. "It's about real people. People like you. People like us -- our fellow Americans."
The First Lady noted that being a U.S. citizen is an "incredible blessing," and reminded the new Americans that their work is just beginning:
What I hope you always remember is that, as citizens, we do not shut the doors of opportunity behind us. We preserve the promise of America. We renew it. We extend it so that future generations of Americans -– Americans by birth and “Americans-by-choice” -– can do their part to form the more perfect union that our founders imagined so many years ago.
So I want to once again congratulate you on this important honor, this extraordinary honor. And I wish you the very best of luck on your journey ahead as citizens of this great country.

En sitios ccmo este: http://www.record-eagle.com/l han tratado de justificar esa afirmación tan clara; veamos ese intento de justificación que de haber dicho esa afirmación Sara Palin o Melania Trump no habrían publicado ese intento de justificación en esos sitios liberales como ha ocurrido con afirmaciones de republicanos que han torcido y exagerado; Donald Trump está siendo objeto de esa campaña por sus descuidados planteamientos.
¨In a strictly literal sense none of the Founding Fathers was born in the United States of America, because that country did not exist until they brought it into being through their efforts. It is true that many of the Founding Fathers were born in the original thirteen British colonies that later became the United States of America after those colonies jointly declared their independence from Great Britain in 1776, but Michelle Obama’s remarks did not, as implied in the example quoted above, express her ignorance of that fact. What the First Lady was communicating on this occasion was that the Founding Fathers were not born into a fully formed and established America with its own history, customs, culture, and values, as modern American children are; they were born into a very different world as British subjects in a colonial empire, and they chose to seek new opportunities and lives for themselves by transforming their world into something distinctive (through the establishment of a new nation) - just as modern immigrants born outside America choose to transform their worlds by opting to leave their homelands for the United States and seek new lives through becoming Americans.¨
