Despite President Obama releasing his “Certificate of Live Birth” and, subsequently, his “Long Form Birth Certificate”, the racists are still out there plugging away with their rancid conspiracy theories.
I recently read this piece of stupidity which is par for the course for these racist idiots.
Feeding into the idiocy are Alex Jones, Jerome Corsi, World Net Daily, and others. Jones is just a common or garden conspiracy theorist, upon whom Glen Beck seems to have fashioned his craziness. Corsi and World Net Daily, on the other hand, seem quite happy to invent rancid theories about Obama, which they then spread to their psychotic followers. What they produce is racism pure and simple.
There are many others who wallow in the sewer of racism that underlies today’s Conservative movement. Corsi and World Net daily are not alone. The whole Birther movement wallows in that sewer, as do many of the Conservatives on Twitter and many who author Right-Wing blogs. What was hidden over the past forty years is now out in the open, and it’s all directed at Obama. It’s pathetic racist hysteria, but is also quite dangerous.
Behavior like this, which leads to destruction, harm, and hate, should never be tolerated. What can we do about it? Well, we need to bring the purveyors of racism out into the open and then follow the directions of Thomas Jefferson, who said: “Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions”.
