Let's refresh our memories: the “birther” movement claims that President Obama was actually born in Kenya, but his quick-thinking parents realized the potential of the slimy, wailing newborn to someday take over the American political system. They quickly fabricated a paper trail including a fake birth announcement that appeared in a Hawaii newspaper. This amazing pair did all that from Kenya – in the days before the Internet or Photoshop, when people still used the telegram to communicate over long distances.
OR DID THEY? cue scary music…..
Speaking to a Republican women’s group in Alabama yesterday, state GOP chairman Bill Armistead recommended to his audience a fringe birther movie that claims that President Obama’s real father is American labor activist Frank Marshall Davis, according Mobile Press-Register political editor George Talbot….
The movie Armistead reportedly recommended, “Dreams From My Real Father,” represents a breakout fringe of the birther movement. The film, according to its director Joel Gilbert, “presents the case that Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist Party USA organizer and propagandist, was Obama's real father, both biological and ideological, and indoctrinated Obama with a political foundation in Marxism and an anti-White world view.”
Raise your hand if you see the problem here….. Frank Marshall Davis was a US citizen. Um…. doesn't that negate the entire birther argument?
This sets up quite the clash between AL GOP chair Armistead and Alabama's head birther, Hugh McInnish. If you recall, McInnish was last sighted (tinfoil hat firmly in place) on the steps of the Capitol in Montgomery with “proof” that Obama is NOT a citizen.
A class of intellectual titans, this isn't. But it is entertaining in the way you can't look away from, say, a train wreck.
