Birther Boone

Pat Boone, no stranger to right-wing and fundamentalist Christian causes, has come out of the closet: he’s a birther–”not one of those politically correct failed to condemn a birther types, but a full bore “Photoshopped birth certificate, millions to hide his records” BIRTHER.

Various news sources have reported the story (which I wasn’t going to report thinking “well he would, wouldn’t he?” until it got so much coverage).

“I was in Kenya a year and a half ago and everybody said, ‘You know, he was born here,”’  Boone, a proud member of the Beverly Hills Tea Party told us last night.

Boone even had some new theories including that the “head of documents” for the State of Hawaii stated under oath that there was no long-form birth certificate on file (I presume he confused Tim Adams’s job in Hawaii).

Tea Party activist Boone, 77, made this declaration at a Tea Party meeting, recorded by The San Francisco Chronicle this past weekend.

    Is it just me, or do I detect a rise in hysteria by the birthers lately?

    They are reduced to slumming with tabloids and washed up old celebrities.

    I almost recorded with Pat Boone once.

    At the performance that was to serve as an ‘audition’ the piano was so out of tune that the choir director decided that it was a deliberate professional insult and walked out.

    I don’t think Pat released his Christmas Album that year.

    via wikipedia:

    Boone campaigned for Ronald Reagan to become Governor of California in 1966 and 1970, and actively supported Reagan’s bid for the Republican presidential nomination in 1976. He was a vocal supporter of the Vietnam War. In 2006, Boone wrote an article for WorldNetDaily, in which he argued that Democrats and others who were against the president during the Iraq War could be questioned for their patriotism. He was interviewed by Neil Cavuto on Fox News, where he expressed his outrage toward opponents of George W. Bush (in particular the Dixie Chicks). He said that their criticisms of the president showed they did not “respect their elders”.

    In early 2007, Boone wrote two articles claiming that the theory of evolution is an “absurd,” “nonsensical” “bankrupt false religion”. He later wrote an editorial in the form of a fairy tale where a young Prince Charming was seduced by a dwarf, got AIDS, and then overdosed.

    In the 2007 Kentucky gubernatorial election, Boone campaigned for incumbent Republican Ernie Fletcher with a prerecorded automated telephone message stating that the Democratic Party candidate Steve Beshear would support “every homosexual cause.” As part of the campaign, Boone asked, “Now do you want a governor who’d like Kentucky to be another San Francisco?” More recently, he assisted the McCain 2008 presidential campaign by lending his voice to automated campaign phonecalls.

    On December 6, 2008 Boone wrote an article for WorldNetDaily wherein he drew analogies between recent gay rights protests and recent terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India. He reminded readers of hostage taking, exploding bombs systematic murder and chaotic conditions of carnage. In it, he asserted that marriage is a biblically ordained institution, which the government has no part in defining. He then stated that equal rights for women and blacks were not “obtained by threats and violent demonstrations and civil disruption” but rather through due process. He concluded by warning that unless they’re checked, the “hedonistic, irresponsible, blindly selfish goals and tactics of homegrown sexual jihadists will escalate into acts vile, violent and destructive”.

    On August 29, 2009, Boone wrote an article comparing liberals to cancer, describing them as “black filthy cells”. In December 2009, Boone agreed to endorse the conservative U.S. congressional candidate John Wayne Tucker (R) for his campaign in Missouri’s 3rd Congressional District against incumbent Russ Carnahan (D) for the 2010 mid term elections.

    In 2009, Boone stated his belief that Barack Obama is not eligible to serve as the President of the United States. Boone also has stated that Barack Obama is fluent in Arabic and read the Koran in Arabic as a boy. He has also stated that President Obama “hasn’t celebrated any Christian holidays in the White House.”

    Boone received a lifetime achievement award at the 38th annual Conservative Political Action Conference held in February 2011.

    Yeah, Pat Boone has been an open paranoid conspiracy nut, RW religious extremist and open bigot for a long, long time.

    I don’t know if he was sane at one time in his youth, but he sure seems to have been a senile and fearful hate-worshipping old nutty fart for a few decades now.

    The only thing about Pat Boone I find interesting is that his daughter showed that being a has-been can be a genetic condition.

    I hope someday soon Miley Cyrus confirms that.

    To be fair, it would have been the A&R men at the record companies that ‘stole’ the songs. To my knowledge, Boone’s records were never described as anything less than cover versions of already existing songs. He was certainly not much of a song writer himself (very few artists were at the time). Elvis’ actually ‘stole’ more songs than Boone.

    Please do not read this as a defense of Boone’s political stance or his ignorance. I’m just giving credit where credit is due.

    You’re correct. Boone’s reputation for recording covers of songs written or recorded by black artists has been exaggerated a bit over the years. if you check out his discography, he recorded Fats Domino’s “Ain’t That a Shame” (also recorded by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Tanya Tucker, and The Four Seasons); Little Richard’s “Tutti Frutti” (also recorded by Elvis) and “Long Tall Sally” (also recorded by Elvis, Eddie Cochran, and The Beatles) and Ivory Joe Hunter’s “I Almost Lost My Mind” (recorded by at least twenty different white artists); and a few less well-known songs. He also had hits with decidedly non-black tunes such as “Love Letters in the Sand,” “Bernadine,” “April Love,” and “Moody River.”

    I don’t believe that he ever wrote any of his own songs, although he did write lyrics to the theme from “Exodus.”

    Who ever heard of a “natural born Saviour” requirement? *lol*

    In fact, given all the “X is not really X” stories (as in “Obama is the son of Malcolm X” or “Paul McCartney is dead), I wonder why there isn’t a “church of the true Christ” that claims Jesus wasn’t really Jesus but an imposter who stole the limelight from the real son of God…

    Orly Taitz is reporting on her meetings with congressional staff and legal counsel on the birtherreport web site. Already there is controversy (of course). The headlines say that she meet with members of Congress, she claims to have met with staff and a single poster to birtherreport says that she met with no one other than receptionists as she dropped off birther materials for them to read.

    From a post at the Orly Taitz’s meetings thread at birtherreport.com

    “A call was place to each office Orly Taitz had meetings to thank them for giving her time to present her evidence. The response that was received after thanking them for having a sit down with her was that no one in their offices met with her. She just dropped of materials and left.

    But don’t take my word for it. Call for yourselves. They said they’d already had several phone calls from Orly’s supporters but that we were all given the wrong impression if Orly said that she actually had meetings with anyone other than the office receptionist to hand off her materials.

    Remember that Deep Purple classic “Smoke on the Water”? I’d listened to it for years and could never understand the lyrics . . . until Pat Boone released his own version of the song on the album “In a Metal Mood” (1997). Check out Pat’s painfully articulate cover:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1QS9aU0ONgA&feature=related

    Now that Pat’s gone birther, I expect “In a MENTAL Mood” to drop by Christmas. One can only guess at the songs . . . “The Wang-Dang Orly Taitzer Tango,” “Why Must I Be a Septuagenarian in Love,” “(Obama’s) The Great Pretender,” “I Orly Have Eyes for You,” “How Much is that B.C. in the Window?,” “That’s All Right Obama,” “Wake Up Little Orly,” “The Little White Cloud that Cried (because a black man was president).”

    And finally; you know when you sing the lyrics to a song based on what you thought you heard, only to learn later what they really are? Here’s what I thought the lyrics to the opening verses of “Smoke on the Water” were:

    We all came out to mountains,
    On way to meet the shoreline.
    To make records in a Motown,
    We didn’t have much desire.

    Frank tapped upon the mountains,
    He had the best base in town
    Til some sister in a fair gown
    She burned the the place to the ground.
