GR vs. BR

If you search at Google Images for “Gerbil Report” one of he first images you’ll see is one from this blog, part of the image below:

GRvBR

Readers might notice that sometimes I say Birther Report and sometimes I say Gerbil Report™. The choice is not random or accidental, but rather indicative of how serious I am in the article.

If I am going to make a substantive criticism of the site, I will say Birther Report and if I am making fun of or reporting hijinks at the site I will say Gerbil Report™ and if I am talking about some of the really outlandish posters, it’s Gerbil Report™ for sure. If I want to give credit for a news article, it’s Birther Report. If it’s just a casual mention—Gerbil Report™.

The problem now is that after the recent crackdown on Barry Soetoro, Esq. at Gerbil Report™, there aren’t any more gerbils. This is going to be a problem for me in the long term because the term I coined and am so proud of, may become meaningless.

In other BR news, I would remind folks that Birther Report and Obama­Release­Your­Records are now two disjoint sites with content after last November 23 on the former and older content on the latter. I don’t know how long this will continue. I’m pretty sure both are still hosted by Google, but on different servers.

    So, was one hacked? And, if so, do you know the hosting company? Mine is HostGator which I finally gave up on. My problem is that I will never be able to convince the bread-earner that I need to set up another site elsewhere.

    As I said before to Kate, “If it’s not something you’ve ever seen, you will never understand or appreciate it.”

    My apologies to Trump. He just doesn’t get it. I do still have my blog site. But, it’s just not what it could be.

    What happen to Barry Soetoro, Esq. at Gerbil Report™. Perhaps you like to tell the story.

    BSE kept posting this large image, over and over. of some guy named Dr. Kaufmann who was involved in a medical examination of somebody. The guy is about my age, bald and with a beard. The image had Kaufmann and ME side by side, and BSE kept saying he was me, even though we’re obviously not the same person. Finally the blog owner stepped in and told him to stop posting the stupid thing.

    I don’t think I have seen a gerbil since then, although there are still photos of this “Scott” guy pasted onto all sorts of stuff.

    What is annoying is that he repeats the same stuff over and over, and it takes up a lot of room rather screaming for attention to the detriment of everybody else.

    Dr. Conspiracy: I don’t think I have seen a gerbil since then, although there are still photos of this “Scott” guy pasted onto all sorts of stuff.

    In addition to asking BR to do something about BSE’s bad photoshop spam, Scott made the mistake of calling out Falcon on his bullcrap, thus he had to be “made an example of”, so the Falcon glee club essentially ran him off the site. It was a pretty amusing piece of birther theater. BSE now accuses anyone who disagrees with he or Falcon of being Scott.

    This is what Gerbil Report has degraded into. Them eating their own on a regular basis.

    Oh, they’ll be back: Mr. BR/GR dislikes the ultra-fringe nonsense like “Sandy Hoax”, but seems to see the personal abuse as a traffic generator. The more he smacks BSE on the “fake attacks” nonsense, the more likely BSE will go back to the nonsense that’s tolerated.

    Bob Nelson or Washington (whoever is running Gerbil Report) is experimenting with wholesale thread removal at the moment. Previously he would kill an individual post, say from Foggy, but leave the rest of the insane responses there.

    When some evil Obot posted (before deletion, natch) that this made the site sound even more like stupid old geezers shouting at non existent clouds, GR/BR now is removing entire threads. This naturally also hoovers up a lot of BSE’s child like posts and images in response so the visible gerbelicious commenting has dropped as a consequence.

    i’m convinced BSE is an obot playing the part of a neurotic birfoon

    there is no way on gods earth that someone could be that crazy to that level.

    there’d be some exploding heads if that were the case and he comes clean after the next election 😀

    I’ve seen crazier ones. Many. BSE is just a run-of-the-mill conspiracy nut who buys into almost every conspiracy theory there is, plus is working off his impotence to change anything by spending his time making “funny” pictures. I have yet to see a level of crazy that would make it obvious he’s faking it.

    Jonestown. Branch Davidians. Heaven’s Gate.

    He’s not even in the 90th percentile of “crazy” (although he’s definitely within sight of it).

    I wonder how long a post reminding the folks at Gerbil Report that “BSE” is the formal name for “mad cow disease” would last.

    Remember: there are no coincidences…

    I agree the comments at BR are uncalled for. They are a waste of space and distract from important issues. If comments are to be posted, they should there help the issue, clarify the issue and refute with a a chance to rebute. Birthers have alot of hate, yet another problem with the cause or movement, it discredits it. Remember what was said in the movie Red Dawn:

    The Colonel: All that hate’s gonna burn you up, kid.
    Robert: It keeps me warm.

    The main problem with the birther movement, is that it’s been dead for years now.

    Andrew Vrba, PmG: The main problem with the birther movement, is that it’s been dead for years now.

    I’m afraid I have to agree. The Birther’s “Last Stand” was on January 06, 2013 when Congress certified the vote. One Congressman and One Senator had a chance to stop it bringing up the birther issue but it never happend. I did tell my Congressman and Senator Rubio they needed to object but they couldn’t gaurnattee success although it was within their power.

    The birther movement is all academic at this point. I said that in the chat room last night on the birther show and was kicked out.

    john: Birthers have alot of hate, yet another problem with the cause or movement, it discredits it.

    Well said, john. And as long as we’re quoting screen plays, remember what The Emperor said about hate in “Return of the Jedi.”

    “The hate is swelling in you now. Take your Jedi weapon. Use it. I am unarmed. Strike me down with it. Give in to your anger. With each passing moment you make yourself more my servant.”

    Hate has made birthers servants to some odious and idiotic people.

    Try to picture “Major Payne” here when I say, “He was ‘ass-signed’ to me by the CIA and Sonny Barger/Alachua County Sheriff Lou Henry.” More green than he cares to admit.

    Typical of those who have never grown up in the Hispanic/American borderlands and not liking the new turn of events where he learns he’s been living with a serial killer (Hoffa, Walsh, Kennedy, Reagan, Sessions, Gorbechev, Pope, Escobar) for decades thinking he had a special college-educated princess all to his self so he’s not quite sure what to think of it and doesn’t know whether to hang on or let go.

    He smells money, that’s a definite.

    My petite flower, so that’s who the new man in your life is – your handler. I knew you could never find another after what we shared. After you found out the truth about the man you knew as Pablo, you were a bit unstable for awhile. But after the pope and I convinced you to go into therapy you were much better. Even Don Brouhaha, the ancient cockroach in the sombrero, said so, the night we drank his Inca Hell Oil and turned into crows.
