(Talking Points Memo)   Alabama GOP chair takes birtherdom to a new level, claiming that Obama was really the bastard son of a Communist. And since we all know that Communism is passed down through the male, that makes Obama a "Stalinist-Marxist"   (tpmmuckraker.talkingpointsmemo.com) divider line 142

that's why this theory divides the birther community. both factions agree that he is in fact black, but they differ as to what makes him more objectionable - being a foreigner or being a communist.

I'd love to get a time machine, find Lincoln, bring him to the present and show him just monumentally important the Emancipation Proclamation really was. You know, drive him to the White House, usher him into the Oval Office and say, "See that nice looking gentleman behind the desk? Because of you, that man is President of the United States.

Then I'd take him down to the Capitol and have him personally kick in the yambags of every single "Republican" in Congress. Just on sheer principle.

So do troofers, Moon Hoaxers, anything involving "the Jews", and the Vince Foster people. Conspiracy theorists are mentally ill. They are frequently very smart but clearly suffering from a level of narcissism that is detrimental to their proper functioning in society. Birthers are the next chapter of what's been going on since the 1920's, but with the addition of the internet and the ability to find like-minded people more easily, they will continue to grow.

It's always about the theorist being able to figure out something the remaining 99.999% of the population is just too stupid to figure out. It's narcissism, plain and simple. They reject anything that counters their arguments, and they berate anyone who calls them out on it. They are interested in learning, but only if it fits their conclusion.

THIS!

People who believe conspiracy theories believe themselves to be special. When you argue against those theories, you are telling them that they aren't special. They don't hear the logic, they just hear you telling them that they aren't special, and they can't hear that. So they hold onto their delusions, convinced that they are better than everyone else.

The sad part is that if Obama gave the birthers EVERYTHING they asked for, they would still find a conspiracy in it somewhere. Why can't they admit that they don't like him and that his colors scare him. I honestly believe that all birthers are closet racists. I understand that people can be misinformed, but I feel that because of a deep rooted nugget of fear or hate, it enables them to believe crazy, made up crap. I wish these people would just die already.

The awesome thing is, this stuff can only help Obama. If he was removed from the ballot in Kansas, for instance, well, he wasn't going to win Kansas anyway, but it will put the derangement of the conservative movement on full display for all to see as few other things could do. So more power to them, I hope they keep it up.

Probably. But it could also demonstrate a keen understanding of the priorities of his constituents. Most of them are, unfortunately, products of the Alabama public school system and so are on the shady side of the bell curve. The dog whistles of the extreme right appeal to their intellectual laziness. Instead of the constituents having to wrap their midget minds around the intricacies of domestic and foreign policy and then finding fault in them, they can just subscribe to the most outrageous conspiracy theory of the moment and feel like they have legitimate political opinions.

The birther nonsense is equally appealing to these farktards because it gets a reaction out of us normals. As most birthers barely possess the cognitive ability of a 3rd grader, they rate success on a 3rd grade level. Getting a reaction/attention = win.

Or I could be completely wrong and geeked out of my gourd on pain meds having had my wisdom teeth pulled today.

Then I'd take him down to the Capitol and have him personally kick in the yambags of every single "Republican" in Congress. Just on sheer principle.


It would be a Jesus in the temple moment with the money changers....good pay for view opportunity. I think I'm going to start a kickstarter fund for this.

From what I see, as a close non-american observer of the complex and delicate series of pas de deux and arabesques that make up US politics, it's pretty clear that Obama is an artificial element - a foreign body, if you like - brutally inserted into the US political corpus in an act of legitimate spiritual rape by unspecified enemies of liberty and G-d with the resources to genetically engineer and indoctrinate an uber-socialist, the pinnacle of Marxist technology and the most leftist Bolshevik in history. This guy puts European socialists like Sarkozi and Cameron in the shade!

It's hard to believe that America has enemies but they're out there - and it seems that that have the reach and resources to obtain the DNA of dangerous historic Commies like Lenin, Stalin,
Eisenhower, Guevara and Hitler.

And they're probably darkies.

Well, generally speaking most nations won't recognize a second marriage if you don't dissolve the first before remarrying, so he is quite literally a bastard.

//I know nothing about Obama Sr.'s political leanings, I guess Kenya might have a strong communist party, or had back during the cold war anyhow.
//Not that this has any bearing on the President whatsoever, if anything overcoming a bad background or dealing with a foreign one makes you more awesomely American.

FlashHarry: RexTalionis: Guess that makes him a US Citizen now, right?

that's why this theory divides the birther community. both factions agree that he is in fact black, but they differ as to what makes him more objectionable - being a foreigner or being a communist.


Easy to answer. Being a communist is always more objectionable as at least a foreigner might be human while a communist is something less. History has given us examples of good foreigners like Winston Churchill but there never has been a good communist.

In fact the claim that Obama is the son of communist is false as that would imply that he has a mother and communists do not have mothers. No woman worthy of the name mother would give birth to a commie. In fact if commies were actual the result of normal biological reproduction they would be listed as one the legitimate reasons for abortion;  Rape, incest, save the life of the mother, fetus testing positive for communism.

soporific: Lsherm: FlashHarry: these people are farking crazy. i mean deranged. clinically. they need help.

So do troofers, Moon Hoaxers, anything involving "the Jews", and the Vince Foster people. Conspiracy theorists are mentally ill. They are frequently very smart but clearly suffering from a level of narcissism that is detrimental to their proper functioning in society. Birthers are the next chapter of what's been going on since the 1920's, but with the addition of the internet and the ability to find like-minded people more easily, they will continue to grow.

It's always about the theorist being able to figure out something the remaining 99.999% of the population is just too stupid to figure out. It's narcissism, plain and simple. They reject anything that counters their arguments, and they berate anyone who calls them out on it. They are interested in learning, but only if it fits their conclusion.

THIS!

People who believe conspiracy theories believe themselves to be special. When you argue against those theories, you are telling them that they aren't special. They don't hear the logic, they just hear you telling them that they aren't special, and they can't hear that. So they hold onto their delusions, convinced that they are better than everyone else.

You could probably make the argument that they clinically suffer abnormal levels of paranoia, but I don't think narcissism is inherent. Maybe half the time, but a lot of them seem like they're honestly terrified because they know The Truth.

Birthers are the next chapter of what's been going on since the 1920's, but with the addition of the internet and the ability to find like-minded people more easily, they will continue to grow.

It's always about the theorist being able to figure out something the remaining 99.999% of the population is just too stupid to figure out. It's narcissism, plain and simple. They reject anything that counters their arguments, and they berate anyone who calls them out on it. They are interested in learning, but only if it fits their conclusion.

You could probably make the argument that they clinically suffer abnormal levels of paranoia, but I don't think narcissism is inherent. Maybe half the time, but a lot of them seem like they're honestly terrified because they know The Truth.

/A lot of things are on a sliding scale. I'd bet these folks aren't quite at the level of diagnosable disorders, but pretty close.


I'd agree with you if any of them, ANY of them, could accept flat-out contradictory evidence against whatever theory they are pushing. Instead, they pretend it doesn't exist. If they pushed the angle that "oh, that evidence was clearly planted by the opposition" then the paranoia angle would make sense. By ignoring it altogether, they're effectively declaring themselves arbiters of their own truth, and I can't think of anything more narcissistic than that.

Because you're thinking a little too metaphorically for a clinical disorder. If they ignore things, it could be because they literally can't comprehend it; because they believe The Man planted it and just don't want to waste air on sheeple; almost anything. Now, I'm sure a lot of conspiracy theorists have narcissistic qualities, but I doubt it's inherent to the behavior, because, as I said, it's not inherently narcissistic if you think you just stumbled on something. That's just paranoia.

Satanic_Hamster: Non-story. The head of a state's GOP in no way speaks for anyone in the Republican party and it's not the job of the party or the candidate or party leaders to correct his beliefs; it's Obama's responsiblity.


..and I don't see the Obama White House stampeding to deny these charges.

/This entire birther thing should be useful in recalibrating the meaning of a 100 IQ.

Well, fair enough. If they can't comprehend what they are hearing, then I guess they're just paranoid.

Do you have something against semicolons? They don't deserve that.

I was using them to separate out the reasons. Didn't really want to number them.
