Birthers? Really?

First of all, I don’t know how they came to be known as “birthers” but that is the stupidest name that I have ever heard.  I know they didn’t give it to themselves, but it is just plain stupid.  And I am beginning to think that the birthers themselves must either be stupid or mentally ill.  It is simply ridiculous to believe that President Obama was not born in the US.  The real problem for these people is that all the evidence points in the other direction.  But then again, I think for some people (perhaps most) they believe something regardless of any evidence to the contrary.

But I found an excellent article that lays some things out (including the idi… I mean, people, that are pushing this conspiracy theory) for those that are interested.

When I think about it, this controversy shouldn’t really surprise me.  There are some people that believe all kinds of weird things and evidence be damned!

Only 42% of Republicans think that Obama was really born in the US.  (Source: Huffpost)

In 2007, about 68% of Republicans and 48% of all Americans said they do not believe in evolution.  (Source: Gallup)

It gets worse:

In 2008, about 60% of Republicans and 45% of all Americans said that they earth was created about 10,000 years ago. (Source: Gallup)

So clearly, someone is perpetrating a huge conspiracy to cover up the fact that not only was the earth created 10,000 or so years ago, but Obama was born somewhere other than Hawaii.  Those secular scientists are just making stuff up when they talk about the earth being millions of years old.  And the (liberal) media, except Lou Dobbs, are just trying to cover up for their boy, Barack Obama.

Now we all understand why people believe that the earth was created a few thousand years ago… the Bible, of course.  But why do people believe that Obama was not born here?  Hmm… could it be… racism?  Nah, I remember them saying that Clinton wasn’t born in the US.  Oh wait, no they didn’t.  They just accused him of being a murdering drug-dealer.  Oh, you think I’m joking.  Check it out here or here or just google “clinton mena” (as in Mena, Arkansas where there is an airport where the drugs were supposedly smuggled into the US).  And you thought that Obama was the anti-christ.  All the Democrats are evil.  Just ask your local Republican.

UPDATE: The birthers now have evidence.  You gotta love it.  They won’t accept the birth records from the US, but the ones from Kenya… of course, that’s gotta be real.

  1. Pope of Walnut Says:

    I think the name “birthers” suits them. It reminds me of Birchers, as in members of the John Birch Society.

  2. Agreed. Perhaps some (most?) of the birthers are Birchers.

  3. Either birthers are vindictive Republicans (Birchers) or they are morons. Probably a little of both.
