I believe that society is judged by how it treats its most vulnerable members and so I must level some criticism at Media Matters for America on its recent treatment of conspiracy theorist and political smear writer Dr. Jerome Corsi, in their article, “The Many Conspiracies Of Kerry Swift-Boater Jerome Corsi.”
Ignoring Corsi’s contributions to science, such as his seminal book, Black Gold Stranglehold that explains that petroleum is not a fossil fuel, Media Matters instead focuses on Corsi’s long history of writing crazy material, from the scurrilous lies told in 2004 about John Kerry’s military service, to his scurrilous lies about John Kerry in 2013, by way of his obsession with Barack Obama’s birth certificate, parentage and even his ring; and it really takes no effort on the part of Media Matters to pile up a string of offenses that quickly overwhelm the defenseless Corsi and make him look like a villain or a fool or both.
Corsi has been the victim of any number of deceptions, from the fake vital records manuals he passed on to Mike Zullo whereby the Maricopa County Cold Case Posse was discredited, to Obots who made a fool out of Corsi by feeding him the made-up story of James Johnson (AKA Jimbot), former head of Fannie Mae, being the head of a 100-strong Obot army directed by the White House. It’s as if Corsi went around with a “Punk Me” sign stuck to his back. Obots are still laughing at this video at poor Corsi’s expense:
Can you look at that video of Corsi and Ed Hale and perhaps not have more sympathy when Corsi accuses Muslims of “boy bumping?”
Ever since Corsi’s outing of me at the Internet tabloid web site WorldNetDaily, Corsi has been in my prayer list, and because of that I am very sensitive to attacks on Corsi, no matter how fair, and factual. I have to have some respect for Corsi, who uses this web site in multiple footnotes in his book, Where’s the Birth Certificate? And can you ignore his patriotic fervor in wearing the flag of our country (right) on his lapel?
How would you feel if your mighty efforts to derail Obama’s second term through lies, faked evidence, smears and open-ended questions, had been roundly rebuffed by the voters who gave Obama an electoral landslide, and at the same time your books only sold when your own publisher bought them, and now even Fox news won’t touch you? Is it really fair to damn someone with their own words and to kick them when they are down? Doesn’t it count for something that Corsi gives me the opportunity to talk about something other than Orly Taitz?
How about a little compassion!
