Birther blog may go private

imageAmong the dwindling number of active web sites promoting the birther line is Dr. Kate’s View. The site is a general mixture of right-wing politics, religion, anti-Muslim/anti-Jewish commentary, and conspiracism (including classic Obama eligibility conspiracies, New World Order, Agenda 21). What makes it distinct is its coverage of HAARP conspiracies (changing weather, mind control, earthquakes) and chemtrails conspiracies. While not a pure birther play, Dr. Kate’s View is solidly in the birther camp (see photo right of her “Usurpathon” in DC courtesy of the Cowgirl blog) with such articles as this from 2013: “He’s still ineligible” and this February 2014 entry: “Trouble for Birther Obama” that says:

Well, more people keep dying  by Obama’s multi-million dollar effort to buy off or threaten judges, to create the standing barrier against Americans challenging his eligibility, and to continue to wreak havoc on America as only a foreign agent can.

The site is a bit kinder and gentler than some of its rivals like Gerbil Report™ perhaps because of the larger proportion of female commenters. Still it has been a good source for examples of extreme nonsense and bigotry that can be used to ridicule the birthers. But now, we may not have Dr. Kate’s View to kick around any more. Starting January 1, 2015 a reader poll appeared asking whether the site should go private, viewable only by registered members.

Dr. Kate’s View has somewhere around 75 individuals that comment there (depending on how one defines active membership) and I suppose that community could continue for a while to exist closed. In the few comment threads I’ve read, they don’t seem to have problems with hecklers, so I’m not sure what the benefit of going private is (it’s not explained in the article). If she thinks that her extreme views can be hidden, I offer two words: “Wayback Machine.”

One reason that birthers exist is that they congregate on birther forums and get all their information from other birthers, avoiding contact with the reality-based community. They reinforce each other’s nonsensical beliefs that wouldn’t fly outside. Going private would be more step away from any chance at critical thinking on that blog. That’s my view.

Obama threatens: Hawaii, keep quiet!

The death of Hawaii Health Director Loretta Fuddy precipitated by a plane crash was ruled an accident. Birthers say it was murder, ordered by Obama to keep her quiet about the President’s birth certificate (or lack thereof). But accidents do happen and sudden cardiac death is a common cause of death.

Now does anybody believe that 6 inches of snow and 50 mph winds in Hawaii are just an accident? Obviously Obama is reminding the people of Hawaii of what will happen to them if they tell the truth about his birth certificate.

We now return you to your regularly-scheduled critical thinking.

SNL comedian goes birther

After watching Jon Steward and Steven Colbert, one might jump to the conclusion only liberals have a sense of humor. Not so. Comedian Victoria Jackson, noted for playing a clueless dumb blonde on Saturday Night Live, reprises that role in real life according to the Juneau Empire newspaper. Jackson was in town along with failed Alaska Senate candidate Joe Miller, promoting an event of the Alaska Restoring Liberty PAC. The event was part of a stopover of the WorldNetDaily Tea Party cruise to Alaska.

The paper said:

imageJackson [pictured right] said she only recently got involved in politics and discovered that Obama was a communist. She endorsed Miller’s call for tea party members to get involved in efforts such as serving as local poll workers, which she said now are “mostly old hippies.”

Another report from the Alaska Dispatch said:

Miller was joined at the event by conservative personalities Jerome Corsi and Victoria Jackson, both of whom leveled strong criticism of President Barack Obama, claiming respectively that his birth certificate is a forgery and that he’s actually a communist.

Jackson herself wrote an article at birther website, and cruise sponsor, WorldNetDaily. The article is inexplicably titled “Make me a Liberal,” but then one can never take a WorldNetDaily headline seriously. It is not clear why most of the WND photos of Jackson have her upside down. I guess the implication is that anyone capable of doing a handstand must know what they’re talking about.

Here’s Jackson’s video program that we can expect soon:

You will have to anxiously await my video of Joseph Farah explaining his youthful encounter with Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dorn; my video of Joe Miller explaining the Murkowski mess (she is voting with the Obama agenda – a true liberal in RINO clothing); my video of Native Hoonah fisherman filleting fish and admitting they voted for Obama and Murkowski because they didn’t know any other candidates (they got Internet three months ago); my video of Jerome Corsi explaining HAARP (High-frequency Active Auroral Research) and contrails; and my video of Aaron Klein (kleinonline.com, ABC Radio), author of "The Manchurian President," discussing Israel. There is no technical way for me to get the videos through cyberspace from this remote location.
