Due to recent incidents of injury sustained by birthers after being thrown under the bus by other birthers, I am concerned that there may be a need for some public support for these victims. The most obvious recent example is the “birther princess” Miki Booth, accused by birther Douglas Vogt as the forger of Obama’s birth certificate (with help from innocent bystander Ah’Nee, Onaka, Fuddy, and me). Vogt has incredibly strong credibility in the birther community based on his impeccable credentials as a self-proclaimed expert and his status as a litigant. Booth is taking her licks from commenters at Birther Report and now responds in a BR article, calling Vogt “dangerous.”
The clueless Nathan Bickel urges Booth to chill out and not be so unhappy about being accused by Vogt of a felony:
It would seem that Miki Booth would be able to stand aside and be happy that the forgery issue of aka Obama is apparently getting some Supreme Court attention.
What birthers need to realize (and some already have) is that they will have to choose between Douglas Vogt and Mike Zullo. Tensions rise as some birthers become frustrated at the lengthening silence of Mike Zullo, prompting this response to our token birther, Jim Youngblood:
★FALCON★: You’re a loon Jim – telling everyone that the ZeroX 666-7779 must be refuted.
It’s time that the rest of you lying O-Holes come out, proudly. And admit your allegiance. You’re not fooling anyone who has been paying attention to your asinine posts.
Other birthers who didn’t follow the party line have been similarly castigated—like Nancy Owens and Martha Trowbridge. Orly Taitz is pretty much persona non grata outside her own circle of supporters, while she has taken Mike Zullo and Joe Arpaio to court to force them to testify, and has been highly critical of delays from the Cold Case Posse. Taitz accuses her own Super PAC of stealing her money in a Mississippi court filing.
BR commenter Marshman2 puts it succinctly:
Next week people will be calling Mike Volin a OBOT. Where does it end. Orly was called a plant. Vogt may have something and he may not. The Zullo release is what I am waiting for. Then for the repubs to take the senate. That’s when the patriots need to surround the White House until congress does something about the Obama fraud.
When I was growing up, some folks said, “Republicans eat their young.” I suppose the same can be said of any doctrinaire group, and especially the birthers.
The conspiracy theory literature characterizes the conspiracy theorist as a loner. In the birther movement we see a number of people who act primarily alone, but then expect others to accept them as leader. Orly Taitz is a great example, and the lone researcher continues to predominate. These folks think that their insights are self-evident and have a problem when everybody doesn’t jump on board.
Will the real forger please stand up?
I have pretty good intelligence that the real creator of Obama’s long-form birth certificate may be attending the anti-birther meetup in Philadelphia. Roxy7655 has volunteered to come up from the DC area to make copies for the group.
I laughed when I saw a scathing attack against me from Nathan Bickel at Birther Report, who inflicted the ultimate insult: de-friending me on Facebook. The irony is that Bickel was never my friend on Facebook in the first place–I never accept birthers as friends on Facebook. He admitted the mistake, but it still was good fun. He did block me on Twitter.
I see that Reality Check Radio has a show scheduled for tonight (Wednesday) to discuss the Vogt forger identifications. I hope to call in as John Doe #8 to answer any questions.
Orly Taitz Super PAC
Reports are that the Orly Taitz Super PAC has one of its “patriotic presentations” scheduled this weekend. It may be in Auburn, California. Watch for a bloom of OTSP bumper stickers next week.
