The Enemies Of The Birthers

The Gullibles don't question Obama's eligibility.  These trusting, naive, innocent folks believe it is crazy, and/or improper to question Obama.  The easiest way to identify a Gullible is their complete lack of curiosity and cynicism in the face of the gazillion contradictions that are facts and circumstances of the life of Barack Obama. 
     
Most Gullibles are Obots, as you'd expect, but there are plenty of guys, like O'Reilly and Beck, and blogs like Redstate.com, who are Gullibles also.  Almost all of our judges, politicians and journalists are committed Gullibles -- especially the journalists.  The Gullibles favorite sport is attacking Birthers.  The reason Gullibles attack Birthers is because of the Birthers' skepticism.  Birthers don't buy Obama's brand of bullshit.

What we have here is one bunch that chug-a-lugged the Obama brew -- and one that says, "Hey!  Wait-a-minute!  What's in that stuff?"

The Gullibles ignore the fact that Obama's book, "Dreams...," his life's narrative,
is a myth.  In the introduction, Obama acknowledges his use of pseudonyms, composite characters, approximated dialogue and events out of chronological order.  Outright lies and omissions are not noted for obvious reasons.

The Gullibles ignore
the fact that Michelle Obama said that Senior and Anna were never married.  She described Anna as "very young and very single when she had him (Obama)."  (2nd source)

The Gullibles ignore the fact that their are
dozens of reports of his Kenyan birth from responsible journalists and politicians -- including his wife Michelle -- on two separate occasions.

The Gullibles ignore the fact that three qualified examiners have investigated the Certification of Live Birth provided by the Obama Campaign to partisan web sites, and
declared the copies that have been referenced by the world to be bogus electronic documents.

The Gullibles ignore the fact that over twenty Adobe product specialists have investigated the Certificate of Live Birth provided by the Obama Campaign on April 27, 2011, and declared the digital document on the White House website has been electronically manipulated.

The Gullibles ignore the fact that Hawaii's Department of Health (DOH) has
issued obfuscations and contradictions, and has been creatively using their rulebook to prevent the disclosure of the facts of Obama's birth records -- except the ones they chose.  When that doesn't work, they change the rules.  When that doesn't work, they build a firewall between the DOH and the public.  When that doesn't work they pass a law that says they don't have to answer inquiries -- which is their job.

The Gullibles ignore the conflicting accounts of Obama's birthplace, even though Obama, himself has been
quoted as saying he was born in two different hospitals -- and neither hospital has ever, ever confirmed Obama's birth at their facility.
    
I could go on all day identifying discrepancies in Obama's story.  Here are a few of the hundreds and hundreds of pages in The Obama File that link to thousands and thousands of pages on the Web, that lay lie to Obama's narrative, demonstrate how little is KNOWN about this guy, and how dynamic his life story is.  It evolves constantly.

Obama, or his people, lay down a scenario.  An investigator investigates.  The investigator finds the scenario is full of holes, or is an out and out fabrication -- and the story evolves -- so-and-so misspoke -- the reporter got it wrong -- somebody misremembered -- most often though, Obama just ignores it -- after all -- he won! -- this cycle is repeating constantly -- remember Rev. Wright, Obama's racist "mentor" -- Obama sat at his feet for 20 years and didn't hear a thing -- the Gullibles went, uh-huh!

Since the Obama's bogus Certification of Live Birth was first published in June 2008, there have been at least two additional incarnations of the document, each containing revisions that bear additional information allegedly "supporting" its authenticity.  There isn't a week that goes by that another element in the Obama narrative doesn't change.  And there isn't another week that goes by that something doesn't disappear from the Web. 

Gullibles expend enormous energy attacking Birthers for expecting Obama to simply be straight with the American People -- who do have a right to know -- and a need to know.  Who are you, Barack Obama, and who sent you?  Will the real Barack Obama please stand up and present his credentials?

Like I say on my main page, "Barack Obama is referenced by name, rather than title, in these pages whenever possible -- except when used as part of a direct quote.  The day Obama produces his bona fides for inspection by the American People, and demonstrates his eligibility to occupy the Office of the President of the United States of America, these pages will be amended to reflect his proper title."

This is like "The Emperors New Clothes" in real life -- Obama's narrative is his suit of clothes, and the Gullibles just love Obama's ever-changing threads, and they get upset when someone points out Obama is bare-assed naked.

Gullibles have to attack Birthers -- they know in their hearts he's nekked -- but he's their guy.
The Five Stages Of Liberal Grief For Obama
Daniel Greenfield says there are five stages in the grieving process from Denial to Acceptance.  American liberals are now moving through their own five stages of dealing with the decline and fall of the myth of Obama.  The last time they had invested this much in a politician was the Kennedy Administration, yet there is no assassin’s bullet to explain the fall of Camelot for them here.  Instead they have to come to terms with the reality of Obama’s failure.

And this is what their five stages look like.

1.  Denial -- Obama is the Messiah.  He is perfect and can do no wrong.  He will usher in a new era, make conservatives and Republicans irrelevant, and assemble the unstoppable machinery of a socialist state that will care for everyone.  Progressive legislation will be instantly passed and implemented without delay.  The Iraq War will just vanish.  All the other wars will too.  The world will love Obama, and so will America.  The oceans will stop rising and even the most radical anti-war activists will learn to love their country again.

2.  Anger -- The damn wingnuts are obstructing Obama!  Why do we even allow opposition parties?  They’re all violent and dangerous bigots.  We should put them in jail before they do something.  The whole teabagging movement is a bunch of fat Wal-Mart shoppers funded by a vast right wing conspiracy!  We are going to roll right over them and nothing is going to stop us! Under Obama’s leadership we’re going to smash the right.  We’re going to pass laws, send Limbaugh to jail or give him a heart attack!  See Rachel Maddow’s latest tweet.  Olbermann is right.  We have to take the fight to them!  Under Obama’s leadership, we’ll win!!!

3.  Bargaining -- Obama is a bit weak, but when he sees we’re behind him, that will change.  Okay so we might lose some Senate seats.  The public is stupid.  They don’t appreciate Obama.  He’s just too good for America.  They keep talking about jobs, when Obama is giving them green jobs, which are much better than regular jobs, because the planet likes them better.  A single green job is worth a 1000 of their stupid old redneck jobs.  But the natives just don’t get it.  So we’ll lose some congressmen.  Most of the ones we’ll lose are conservative Democrats anyway.  We don’t need them.  The party will be purified. Of course we’ll probably have to make some bipartisan coalitions with liberal Republicans, but the important thing is we’re still moving forward.

4.  Depression -- Where did we go wrong?  Obama was a great candidate, but now he’s letting the right wing walk all over him.  He couldn’t get much done even with a supermajority.  And it’s going to be even worse now.  The war is dragging on, the economy is terrible and everyone hates us!  Why can’t Obama do what Olbermann and Paul Krugman are telling him to do?  The netroots raised all that money for him, and now he’s just ignoring us.  Are all politicians just liars and crooks who work for the military-industrial complex?  Is there no hope even for a half-black man who references Jimmy Hendrix?  Are we just doomed to be slaves in the belly of a vast corporation, like the one my dad wanted to me to work for, even though I kept telling him that my degree is in Media Philosophy?

5.  Acceptance -- Obama lied to me.  He lied to all of us.  He didn’t really care about any of the things, he said he cared about.  I just feel so used.  We’ll never get any real reform in this country because everything is in the hands of the big corporations.  Maybe Hillary would have been better?  Or what about John Edwards, he had great hair and solid progressive credentials, and then we dumped him for a half-black man who kept telling us everything would be alright if we just believed in him.  John, come back!  We still love you.  I don’t care how many illegitimate babies you made!  Oh to hell with this.  I hate politics.  I’m erasing my DailyKos diary and going backpacking in the Andes.

Coming out of a cocoon of propaganda isn’t easy.  And those most affected by it are not the rank and file, who have enough contact with the real world to figure out that things are going south, long before the loyalist cadres do.  The average Russian knew the Soviet Union was impoverished long before the mid-level party members who thought that things were great, because their lifestyle was above that of the average worker.  The average German soldier knew the war was lost, because his battalion kept retreating.  All the while the Nazi elite were still listening to Hitler promise that the war would be won with super-weapons.

Leader-worship is one of the more devastating propaganda cocoons because it teaches faith in a man, raising him up to a superhuman stature.  Just believe is the message.  Bypass the rational parts of the brain and let the madness of the crowd make you feel uplifted.  Experience the sense that history is being by you in this moment.  Stop thinking and start worshiping.
