First ladies don’t typically make history. They tend to sit in the background for photo ops and work on harmless apolitical pet projects. Michelle Obama, on the other hand, has made history by doing some of the worst political damage of any first lady to ever grace the White House.
Together, Michelle and Barack have been a power couple of freedom-crushing proportions.
But it hasn’t gone unnoticed. One U.S. Marine decided to sharpen his pencil and call out the Obamas for all the wrong they’ve done before they leave office.
What he said has liberals foaming at the mouth.
Read excerpts from the letter via the Conservative Tribune to see why:
The controversial letter, written by Mike Shepard nearly a year ago, called out the first lady and her husband for perpetuating the idea that black people are held back by white people.
“You live in a free country to blame your poor pathetic life on the color of another man’s skin,” he wrote.
Shepard went on to detail how hypocritical the Obamas have been while in the White House, as they have slammed the successful and wealthy, even though they would themselves definitely be considered among the privileged in this country.
“You both live better than 99 percent of the people in this world because of this country,” he wrote. “You and your husband have become millionaires off the people of this country, but demonstrate very little appreciation for all that we give.”
The outspoken Marine noted that, despite their lofty Harvard educations, the Obamas have proven to be quite ignorant when it comes to solving the issues facing this country, particularly racial issues.
“You blame past generations of Americans for the troubles of a few,” he explained. “This country doesn’t owe you anymore than it owes me,” he wrote a few lines later.
But, of course, liberals and race-baiters on social media couldn’t stand someone speaking the truth about their beloved Obamas. Instead of defending the president and first lady’s policies against the marine’s criticisms, they stuck to what they know best and simply called him a racist.
One Twitter user, Karen Smith, took it one step further, and, in addition to accusing Shepard of racism, also claimed that he was “not a man, not a Marine and not a Christian.
Another user, Marilyn Ramirez, called for Shepard to be “stripped of the uniform” for his letter, which she called a “disgrace.”
What these liberals refuse to acknowledged was that every word this Marine wrote was entirely true. The Obamas have become successful people in this country and realized their “American Dream,” yet they use their position not to encourage others to find the same success, but instead to blame another race for any setbacks they may experience along the way.
The Obamas had a unique opportunity to unite the country, heal lingering racial wounds and prove that skin color is not a deterrent to success, but instead, they have stoked the flames of racial division and encouraged minorities to use “white privilege” as an excuse not to succeed.

It sickens me that I have to take time to write you this letter. I am a Marine who doesn’t recognize color because every color has lived and died for you. You live in a free country to blame your poor pathetic life on the color of another man’s skin. All colors have given their lives for an educated woman to have the freedom to be so ignorant. I don’t blame black people for the ignorance that comes from your mouth. I love all colors because I love all that God creates. I don’t have to like you to love you and today is no different. I don’t like you or your husband because of your character hidden behind your skin. Isn’t it funny how the truth always reveals itself in time. You and your husband never showed this side of yourselves in 2008 before he was elected.
You both live better than 99% of the people in this world because of this country. You said that you are for the first time proud to be an American. Well, I will tell you that most of us are ashamed of you. You and your husband have become millionaires off the people of this country, but demonstrate very little appreciation for all that we give. White, black, brown or indifferent millions have fought and died for you to have the freedom to say the ignorant things you say. You are educated, but clearly have very little common sense. You blame past generations of Americans for the troubles of a few. Stop blaming white people for your misery and take a look at yourself in the mirror. We are all responsible for our own happiness and misery. The KKK is ignorance wrapped in a sheet while the Black panthers are raised on ignorance and hate.
No different from the cult of Islam thinking their race is better than all other men. God is love and creates every color to include our skin. To truly love God is to love all that He loves. For that I love each of you and pray that we all start taking responsibility for our own damned sins.
Martin Luther King had a dream that we would all live in the promise land. He is not remembered for being black. He is remembered for the love, and character he had within his heart. If you don’t like this country get on that plane and never come back. I will stay here and love all Americans, regardless of skin. I will love the beauty of what God created and stand tall with my American friends. Not because of their color but for the character and love they carry within. This country doesn’t owe you anymore than it owes me. So many have thanked me for my service and I will always be grateful. I pray that one day you and your husband might cause me to be grateful for yours. You will never be remembered as the First Lady of Color but soon forgotten after you leave the White House. You nor your husband shall ever divide us. I wish you no harm, but pray you will get the hell off of this American land… If you wish to find me I am now a writer for the DC Gazette. Also on Twitter @mshep08_mike …God bless you and Semper Fi.
He caught a lot of heat for it, but you have to appreciate this Marine speaking out for what’s right.
