Breitbart.com Publishes Ludicrous ‘Not-Birther’ Article (Wink)

In a way, it’s kind of sad to see what the right wing blogosphere has turned into. But also kind of hilarious.

Remember when Andrew Breitbart used to beg conservatives not to indulge the Birther conspiracy theory? (While, at the same time, appearing at speaking events with well-known Birthers?)

Well, with Andrew gone, the mini-Breitbarts who’ve turned his site from a propaganda machine into a laughingstock are no longer worried about that.

Possibly the dumbest right wing article you’ll read today, from breitbart.com’s Joel Pollak: The Vetting - Exclusive - Obama’s Literary Agent in 1991 Booklet: ‘Born in Kenya and Raised in Indonesia and Hawaii’.

FEAR THE VETTING!

Here’s what they “vetted” this time: a promotional booklet written and produced by a literary agency in 1991, not intended for public distribution, that incorrectly states Barack Obama was “born in Kenya.”

Pollak sanctimoniously invokes the name of their departed founder in an intro that says, “This isn’t a Birther article, folks, no matter how much it looks like one. (Wink, wink.)”

Note from Senior Management:

Andrew Breitbart was never a “Birther,” and Breitbart News is a site that has never advocated the narrative of “Birtherism.” In fact, Andrew believed, as we do, that President Barack Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on August 4, 1961.

Yet Andrew also believed that the complicit mainstream media had refused to examine President Obama’s ideological past, or the carefully crafted persona he and his advisers had constructed for him.

It is for that reason that we launched “The Vetting,” an ongoing series in which we explore the ideological background of President Obama (and other presidential candidates)—not to re-litigate 2008, but because ideas and actions have consequences.

It is also in that spirit that we discovered, and now present, the booklet described below—one that includes a marketing pitch for a forthcoming book by a then-young, otherwise unknown former president of the Harvard Law Review.

It is evidence—not of the President’s foreign origin, but that Barack Obama’s public persona has perhaps been presented differently at different times.

Do I even have to tell you what kind of comments are being posted for Pollak’s ludicrous article? The place is lousy with Birthers, of course. A small selection of comments from the deluge:

This why all of his school history and college and law school writings remain hidden. His birth history and his Marxist education and ideology would have prevented him from being president. Let’s see NBC spin this.

[…]

The only mistake the birthers make is by jumping to the conclusion that, because the Obama birth certificate is a fraud (which it plainly is), therefore Obama is not an American citizen. There are a lot of reasons for forging a birth certificate. They all disqualify Obama from re-election. But they don’t all require that he isn’t an American citizen. The birther movement needs to focus on one thing and one thing only: making Obama explain why he has presented a fraudulent birth certificate to the public.

[…]

“It is evidence—not of the President’s foreign origin, but that
Barack Obama’s public persona has perhaps been presented differently at
different times.”

And why ISN’T it evidence of Obama’s “foreign origin”? Combined with his stalling over the release of his birth certificate, and his then releasing an obviously forged birth certificate, why in the world wouldn’t this be considered supporting evidence for his having been born in Kenya?

[…]

This:

“Note from Senior Management:
Andrew Breitbart was never a ‘Birther,’ and Breitbart News is a site that has never advocated the narrative of ‘Birtherism.’”

…is unfortunate. It smacks of elitism and ignorance. It is as if one has put a sign on his own bum that says, “Kick me, I’m a Dupe.”

[…]

WTF is with all the apologetic CRAP about “birthers”?

Look, if you AREN’T a birther, you’re a DUMB ASS. His birth narrative has been shown to be false, he has released TWO FORGERIES to the US pop’l AND is using a social security number issued from CT, a state he NEVER lived in, in 1977 to another person who has since died, a federal offense.

If you came to the conclusion that he WAS born in the US, then you lack ANY ability to logically reason and are a complete MORON. So why apologize for not being an IDIOT?!?!?

What, are you afraid the main stream media will attack you? THEY ALREADY DO! Are you afraid of the TRUTH!?!?!? C’mon now. Grow a pair.

Face it. He’s a foreign born America hating Marxist who has usurped the presidency.

Who could ever have predicted this kind of response?
