I honestly never thought it would come to this, but here we have Robert Gibbs talking about the willful ignorance that is the birthers movement.
I think we all need to step back for a moment and realize just how amazing this is.
Because, to the best of my knowledge, nobody in the White House has ever been asked if 9/11 was an inside job. But here you have a reporter asking the spokesperson for the President if there’s any way that folks who don’t believe Obama was born in the US will wise up.
Folks, this started out as a CHAIN EMAIL. There is absolutely ZERO truth to any of this nonsense. But slowly it worked its way into conservative blogs …and then to right wing radio …and then Fox News …and then Republican politicians picked up the meme …and then mainstream political commentators like Lou Dobbs …and then to the White House.
What I find even more amazing is that some regular readers here at Donklephant have actually bought into some of the weasely ways the more mainstream birthers keep this train rolling. How it’s “odd” that Obama hasn’t supplied a birth certificate, how they find it “interesting” why Hawaii refuses to release the certificate, etc.
Do know that all of these things are completely false, but they’re always couched in such a way as to lend credence to the notion that Obama is hiding something.
Well, here’s the deal…I literally have no more patience for it. So if you support these birth certificate conspiracy theories, you’re not welcome here. Moreover, if you comment and play that weasley “odd/interesting” game, you’re banned. No questions asked.
