Because birtherism continues to be more than a notion of the tin foil hat fringe, I thought this thorough and concise article from Dr. Conspiracy - whose blog is the quintessential one stop shop for debunking any and all (and I do mean all) conspiracy theories revolving around President Obama - was worth sharing. By relying on facts and logic - things in desperate short supply among many in the Republican Party and conservative movement - it makes it clear that it is absolutely impossible that President Obama was born in Kenya.
In fact, in the face of the barrage of words from the proponents of these forgery theories, it takes some real effort to keep your head and to stop for a minute and consider what you are being asked to believe. You are asked to believe that someone elected to the most powerful office in the world got away with a cheap imitation birth certificate and the only people who KNOW THE TRUTH are a bunch of Internet bloggers, whereas all the courts, the Congress and the news organizations of the world were fooled.
They believe that Obama’s parents, impoverished students, came up with a small fortune for them to travel to Africa, an arduous three-day trip by air, taken at the time of delivery of the baby, disdaining the excellent medical care in Honolulu 15 minutes away in favor of an unknown situation in a third-world country. Somehow they managed to do this without being counted in the 1961-62 Immigration totals of US Citizens returning from Kenya. They did this in spite of Barack Obama’s father’s immigration file showing that he didn’t leave the US that year. They did this in in spite of two Honolulu newspapers listing Obama’s birth from health department reports. They do this in spite of numerous documents and official statements from the state of Hawaii saying Obama was born there and his paperwork is in order.
This article alone should prepare you will should you find yourself needing a way to shut up any stubborn birther who may cross your path. In fact, the whole blog is worth checking out in case you have a morbid birther thirst that needs quenching.
