I got a laugh over at Birther Report. They have this article titled: “Must Hear: CSU Criminology Professor Dissects Obama’s Manufactured Background.” It’s about an associate professor of criminology at California State University Fresno named Jason Kissner who went on the Peter Boyles talk radio program to spin some theories about Obama’s early life. Kissner also wrote a somewhat similar article for The American Thinker last May. Here’s a bit from the Boyles show to give you the flavor of what he was saying:
She’s [Loretta Fuddy] associated with this Subud1 cult which was rooted in Indonesia and subsequently spread to places like Hawaii in the 1960’s, and interestingly enough, it’s also tied to Chicago…. … Three locations that have been connected to Obama’s life, clearly, in a very pronounced way. Then you find that Ann Soetoro also has connections with this cult….
The commenters at Birther Report are skeptical, saying things like:
… absolutely no evidence
What’s his proof?
What is funny is that these skeptical remarks aren’t directed to his really far out conspiracy theories, but rather at his opening comment:
I do think he [Obama] was born in Hawaii.
1The Subud spiritual movement is said to have about 10,000 members worldwide.
One cannot fail to notice the striking similarity between the symbol for the “seven circles” of Subud, and the Obama campaign logo.
