Article says birthers are good for Obama

In an article on the Chinese web site, Global Times, California writer Charles Gray said in a significant article yesterday:

However, far from being a danger to Obama, birther mania has actually helped his political agenda and has, more often than not, left the Republican Party on the political defensive.

It’s good propaganda for the Chinese to paint the Republican party as racists, but I don’t think this article is far off the mark, pointing out the failure to produce any evidence by birther celebrities Donald Trump, and Joe Arpaio.

Anyway, “’Birther’ lunacy leaves all Republicans painted as racist crackpots” is a feel-good article for Obots, and the birthers (in particularly David Farrar and KBOA) are wailing and gnashing their teeth in comments there.

    The stereo-type of the white supremacist religious bigot is not a new one, it has only been revived with a new breath of apocalyptic wind.

    I’m sure there was a time all this white religious fervor was used successfully to convert indigenous populations to patriotism, but not anymore.

    Well wouldn’t you be unhinged if you found out that your marriage to Jesus was coming to an end?

    Tim Wise But the problem goes deeper because if the bomber does in fact turn out to be a person of Muslim descent, a whole community will face the wrath of many in white America.

    I will have to take issue on that with Mr Wise. Only a few crazies will embark on the warpath if the person was a Muslim. To me, its the same scare tatcic that birthers use about riots if Obama got removed from office, of cousre there will be a few idiots. I do not see a mass murdering of Muslims from whites or a super-riot of blacks.

    So whatever became of David Farrar’s declared promise to file against Mitt Romney if he was nominated?

    I’m not sure I understand your comment, but if you are implying that KBOA is a religious fanatic, I don’t think that’s correct. She’s a well-known birfer nut who worships Vattel.

    Most of the Birthers pretend to be devout Christians…. although how they managed to miss the “shalt not bear false witness” part is a mystery.

    I see that David Farrar is desperately thrashing about in the comments section at the Global Times article, trying to impress everybody that (a) he knows what he is talking about and (b) every court, judge and lawyer who disagrees with him is clueless. I reminded him of the score of 0-200. Frankly I doubt that he will shut up in the forseeable future.

    She disappearred from Amazon, after a fairly lengthy (and stupefyingly repetitive) engagement there.

    She’s been missing, but she hasn’t been missed.

    “the birthers (in particularly David Farrar and KBOA) are wailing and gnashing their teeth in comments there.”

    Denial drives humans to unwittingly assist in the realization of their own worst fears. It’s a powerful phenomena, I see it at work every day in my own life. But rarely do humans undo themselves so spectacularly. At least de birfers excel at something

    Keith: So how did you get not single then?

    I found the woman who was meant for me, and the proof of that is thus:

    1. I proposed marriage to her on the 10th anniversary of our first meeting, to the very hour (and she turned around to see who I was talking to).

    2. Our daughter was born on our 2nd wedding anniversary, so I have no excuse for forgetting the date. She was born two years, one hour, and 12 minutes after we got married.

    Actually, that is so improbable that it is impossible, therefore you are either lying or have forged your marriage certificate and your daughter’s BC. 😉

    You forget that I am, by virtue of 22 years of government service in media relations, a central asset to the New World Order-Trilateralist-Masonic-Bilderberg-Jewish-Bankster-Communist-Satanic conspiracy, so I am operating under multiple levels of extremely deep cover in the great disinformation campaign.

    1.I proposed marriage to her on the 10th anniversary of our first meeting, to the very hour (and she turned around to see who I was talking to).

    So, since you admit yourself that she found you repugnant before marriage, the answer must be one of (or a combination thereof) the following

    1) you kidnapped her because some 18th century Swiss guy said you could
    2) it was an arraigned marriage and her parents were really desperate to offload her
    3) I had a third possibility, but I forgot it by the time I got to typing out the sentence

    2.Our daughter was born on our 2nd wedding anniversary, so I have no excuse for forgetting the date. She was born two years, one hour, and 12 minutes after we got married.

    I don’t have an excuse either. My wife’s birthday is in June, our anniversary in July, my birthday in August – all on the same day of them month. It also happens that our anniversary is on my Parents 50th wedding anniversary. That was a complete accident, my wife arranged the day in my absence without realizing it.
