(Info Wars)   When Republicans say Barack Obama was born in Kenya, they are called racists. When the AP reported Barack Obama as Kenyan-born in 2004, that's how you sell a story. Kind of like the political version of A Million Little Pieces   (infowars.com) divider line 314

You guys are missing the bigger issue. According to this article, Obama's first name is spelled "Barrack". And since, of course, the article could not conceivably contain any errors, this means that he has been LYING to us about his name all these years.

You know, let's make one thing clear.

During the election in 2008, only Barack Obama said he would covertly send forces into Pakistan to go after Osama Bin Laden. The rest of the political world called that "reckless." Clinton, Biden, GWB, GHWB, McCain, Palin, Romney, the whole lot of them. When presented with the opportunity, Obama did not flinch. He did not blink. He brought a measure of justice to for the 3,000 victims of that sociopath where everybody else would have let him live out his days in a suburban cul-de-sac.

So you know what, even if he was born in Kenyan, took an oath of allegiance to the Queen or the Prophet Muhammad or the Prim Minster of Kenya or the cute fuzzy things from Alpha Centauri, I don't care because if given the choice between getting the bastard that masterminded the murder of 3,000 Americans or the the strict following of some archaic rule of the US Constitution. I'm picking killing the murderous bastard, you might not think justice for the 9/11 is important, but I do.

Way to miss the point entirely.

But if it makes you happy, no. And I'm the big unfair meanie here.

Overfiend: I do wonder if President Obama said this though:

FTA: This report explains the context of the oft cited debate, between Obama and Keyes in the following Fall, in which Keyes faulted Obama for not being a "natural born citizen", and in which Obama, by his quick retort, "So what? I am running for Illinois Senator, not the presidency"


It's "oft cited," which means they don't need an actual citation.

In fact, if there is no proof he said it, that lack of proof actually proves that he said it..

It's Conspiracy Theory 101, people.

Time machine, time machine, time machine. It might not be plausible by today's technology, but 24the century Starfleet officers brought Obama one so he could change his past (or at least forge it) because the fate of the future rests on it.

Overfiend: I don't believe he said it, or if he did, it was for political expediency.


It's a response to a classic strategy of an outrageous and irrelevant lie. The idea is to make it impossible to both dispute the statement and assert its irrelevance within an attention span. It's the same strategy used when someone is falsely outed as gay; if the target first responds with "That doesn't matter", the attacker uses that as proof that he is gay, while if the target first responds with "No I'm not!", the attacker uses that as proof that he doesn't want to be associated with gays.

The response may very well have been something like "What? I'm running for senate, not president, and that's not true anyway!"

No. I think it is an Elizabeth Warren operation where he tried to puff up something about his background and it got out of control at the time (e.g. Kenyan background due to father got turned into Kenyan-born).

Yes. You ignore them.
Or are you so weak that when you see those words that you are bothered?

It would be an easy way to filter out the morons

Or he could always just ignore you . . .

Personally I think we should all just start referring to him as "dicknose." Just a little innocent name calling, right? Only weak people get bothered by that stuff.

So calling someone a lib, short for liberal, which most liberals are fine with identifying themselves that way is the same as calling someone dicknose?


That's not a reason to call tenpoundsofcheese a dicknose, but the rest of his posting is.

Why don't you all have him on ignore? Don't remember his "performance" in all those Trayvon Martin threads?

you are wrong and should feel bad.


Look: I have to say do I believe a market will say "I just made something up for the lulz" or "I made something up for the sales"

I have to believe the later and not the former.

For me, I only keep one person at a time on ignore. It's a high honor.

I will say to his credit, I think tenpoundsofcheese truly and honestly believes what he says and has actual reasons for them. I disagree with all them but he'll at least try to explain himself. Whereas someone like BillCo just shiats the thread with some nonsense, trite, standalone "Obama sucks" type of comment that may or may not even fit the context of the discussion, and leaves so he doesn't have to be accountable for what he did.

I only want to yell at tenpoundsofcheese. I want to rub BillCo's nose in his shiat.

It should be noted that on January 8, 2006, the Honolulu Advertiser also reported that Barack Hussein Obama was born outside the United States.

Funny how they noted that, but not THIS(From the link):

CORRECTION: A correction on this story was published on Sunday, Jan. 15, 2006: Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., was born in Honolulu on Aug. 4, 1961. A Page One story last Sunday contained incorrect information about his birthplace.

No, you have to understand -- Drew's totally in the tank for Obama. That's why the modmins are greenlighting all these articles: to undermine the birther movement by unfairly quoting all the things they actually said in some sort of effort to make them look stupid. It's a really scummy, scurrilous attack, linking to all of their blather in context where it can't be judged properly by history.

Please, refer to the thread above wherein the "internet" is offered as an authoritative source of information where "people can go and look these things up." It would appear that by Fark standards, birthers, relying on AP stories and BO's publicists, would be 100% accurate.

And yet they're not - ergo, Farkers don't know what they're talking about.

VJStinger: Ya know... I love how these birthers are always biatching about the Presidents place of birth. Even if he was born in Kenya his mother was an American citizen, and being that she gave birth to an "anchor babby" in a country other than her own. Wouldn't that mean both she and the baby are supposed to go back to her country of origin? I mean that's what they always want to do with the immigrants here, right? Send the mother and the baby back to the country of the mothers origin? Am I missing something?


Actually under law Barack would have been eligible for presidency regardless of his birthplace.

His Mom is a US citizen, thus he is a US citizen. (Granted paperwork has to be filled out, etc)

As long as Barack lived in the US for 14 years prior to his election he is eligible for the presidency. This law was developed by our founding fathers to protect the children of diplomats.

Staying awake in civics class helps!

I would love to do a paper on how this whole movement started. It's really morphed into a meme of it;s own. Apparently it's all a CIA communist conspiracy now (according to my batshiat insane Alex Jones loving FB buddy).
