Long form release delay – explained! By Dr. Conspiracy on May 3, 2011 in Wild & Wacky Click for more funny pictures from YASRSLY.COM
This is my favorite:
Once upon a time in America, a black man from Africa met and loved a girl from Kansas and created a son that became President “in the land where all things are possible”.
However, in their zeal to defeat this great man during the presidential campaign of 2008, the Republicans had nurtured a Frankenstein they could no longer control – the birthers. And they were bat crazy racists and delusional beyond belief, they intended to make the President jump through as many potentially humiliating hoops as possible so they could establish in their minds that they are Master and he is Slave.
But Big-B was no shrinking violet and said:
“We’ve got serious problems, which require serious solutions, and if you want to talk about character and honesty, Birthers, you’d better come at me with more than your online lies, forgeries, and attempts to smear me by painting my bloodline as tainted by my father. What’s next, stories of my mother being a whore instead of the impressionable young girl she was? You people are despicable beyond belief.
If you want to talk about character and American values, fine. Just tell me where and when, and I’ll show up and shine a light on you cockroaches and make you scatter like the vermin you are. This is a time for serious people, Birthers, and your fifteen minutes are up.
My name is Barack Obama and I AM the President.”
[Paraphrased and borrowed from everywhere]
I nominate bjphysics comment as best of the year
So far. And I second that.
Here is my nominee:
I particularly like that one, since OBL was killed pretty much 8 years from GWB’s “Mission Accomplished” speech.
It seems quite fitting in that historic and ironic context.
The birthers are really going over the edge….
the word is coming out now on some of the blogs that the military is going to take the usurpur down. many of them are going to cease to take orders from obama. it is widely believed that the military acted on its own in the case of bin ladin becuse they went to obama for permission to take him out and obama said no. the military acted on their own because they do not recognize obama as a legal c. i. c. the usurpur may begin to really crumble now.

I knew it was a fake before seeing the evidence; the evidence shown only confirms millions of American’s beliefs. The man has lied since day-1 – there is no reason to believe a word he says. Also, he despises our military, so I doubt he had anything to do with the death of the world’s #1 terrorist. Obama disses all Christian holidays while celebrating all Muslim holidays; he’s clearly a Muslim, and if anything he sides with individuals like Osama Bin Laden. I know military personnel, and I am told that he is so widely hated, that Obama will not enter an American military base without mass security and also disarming U.S. soldiers for fear he would be shot. There is a story about Obama entering a U.S. military camp on foreign soil, and the Secret Service collected all of the soldier’s ammunition before Obama would enter. Obama then only stayed a few minutes and left swiftly. He must be removed before it’s too late, and I pray the rumors of a military coup are true!

Did Senior Military/Intelligence Officials Overrule President Obama Regarding Mission to Kill Osama Bin Laden?
May 3, 2011 8:33 AM
you are right Laura, they are over the edge, do they actuall belive this stuff, this is some serious mental illness
one funny comment was about those Navy people at the acdemy was an old video of them cheering Reagan.
We are running out of straight jackets
The infamously inappropriate “Mission Accomplished” speech by George W. Bush actually took place 8 years to the day before the death of Bin Laden.
This is one of many reasons why birthers are despised.

(It looks better now.)
Thanks for the snapshot – it’s amazing how powerful rationalization can be when someone’s worldview is crumbling around them… It’s too bad that none of them seem capable of being saved at this point (if they haven’t given up birtherism in the past week, I can’t imagine what it would take to make them do so…).
Our president had already showed his US passport to;
1. Get a Passport; http://swampland.blogs.time.com/2008/03/20/obamas…
2. Become a US Senator;
I feel sorry for all the little Birthers, It’s not their fault; it’s your families’ fault that taught you that you were better than other people based on race, creed ethnicity, color, nationality or sex, in short they engrained in you their hate (what a legacy).
But you know at some point you need to grow up and act like an adult and think for yourself and distinguish what is true and what is BS.
But there is where the little Birthers find yourself because we all know it was never about a birth certificate or grades, because we all know you want to go around wearing white sheets, burn crosses and hang people who are not like you, we know that your growth is stunted in your hate, and hate is what this is all about, you will never win anymore, and I feel sorry for all of you. I can only imagine when our President is re-elected what you phonies will lie about next. Oh, and just know, if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and sounds like a duck, it’s a duck, the little Birthers are a bunch of racists!
Ugh! It is utterly appalling the depths of depraved nonsense these nuts will make up in order to try to deny the president. Their made up stories and statements about the military and Obama are just offensive beyond belief. What a bunch of unpatriotic A-holes to even suggest such cr*p.
And Pakistan is on the conspiracy too. They’re trying to prop up Obama, of course.
It’s the Birthers against the world!
Now THAT one is really good.
I liked this one:
I couldn’t believe what I read. Really.
We have people who really hate Sarkozy in France, far more than Chirac who was kind of liked, and I have seen some really fiery vitriolic posts on the net tearing him a new one as the saying goes, but I have NEVER read French posts as disconnected from reality as what you’ve reprinted here. NEVER EVER.
This goes beyond opposition, hatred even, into total insanity.
I’m just baffled.
I’m sure Hollywood will use his quote if there ever comes “Obama: The Movie”. 🙂
Yes. It is very shameful and saddening and reflects bad on us as a country.
> and reflects bad on us as a country
I don’t think anyone’s opinion of a country should be tainted by what a small part of its people do/think or what some of its politicians do/think. That’s a lesson learned after the collapse of Soviet Russia. Or one personally experienced when in my country some Neonazis burned down an immigrant home in the 90s, killing several people. These idiots are not and should not be taken as representative.
It would be different if a decidedly pro-birther party got a significant part of the vote. But I don’t see that happening (and did not before the release of the LFBC).
Obama got Osama.
There is a new viral cult unfolding before our eyes. We are present at the creation of a new conspiracy cult.
The birther conspiracy is giving way to the deather conspiracies.
The killing of Osama has caused two, mutually exclusive, cults. One is that the death of Osama was a fake, because he is not really dead, since we do not have the body.
The other is that Osama’s death was a fake, because he was already dead.
The key to the second is Steve Pieczenik. He has gone viral on the web on the idea that Osama died ten years ago.
You can listen to him right now on the web on the Alex Jones show.
Steve’s wiki entry, which he himself probably wrote, shows his academic background, and lists some spy novels he wrote with Tom Clancy.
Listening to him now, he is a full fledged nutcase.
He is now the mother lode of conspiracy theories going back over 70 years. I just heard him railing against military officers taking orders from civilians. He wants to sink the Constitution and its doctrine of civilian control of the military.
So, just google him with the term Obama, get some popcorn, and sit back and watch Your Nut Parade. It is important to take a look at a nut conspiracy theory as it is born, to observe the pathology. The patterns of growth will, I predict, match the patterns of all the other famous conspiracy theories.
So there is an opportunity here for someone to open a site for Osama Conspiracies.
I remember reading that Sarkozy was deeply unpopular in France even as he was elected, but people elected him as it was felt that he was the type of guy that could solve the countries problems. I’m not going to judge his success on that (mainly as I relly dont know much about whats been going on in France) but its certainly light hears away from the political immaturity I see on comments on virtually every story in the states.
Just because you don’t like someone does not mean you cant hope he is successful or effective. Personally I cant stand the Prime Minister of Ireland right now, but I said to my mother (who is a fan of him) that he has a hard job on his hands and I wished him well in it.
The thing that baffles me is the disconnect with reality.
I could easily come up with a list of ten horrible things said about Sarkozy, especially if I were to include his private life, but none of it would be as disconnected from reality as the comments we saw above.
I believe Russia has some of the same outer fringe nuts too. If so I wonder what it means.
Daily Show coverage of long form:
“Obama didn’t pose for it, it’s photoshopped.”
How do we know that? Where is the Certificate of None Posing? And don’t try that PDF trick; we have our layer detectors on full alert.
From dr k(H)ate’s:
Apparently Heather thinks that bin Laden had advanced dialysis technology or that he had hidden his super-secret plans in his medical equipment…
One of my friends (who, like me, uses a C-PAP) noticed that bin Laden had a C-PAP by his bed (don’t worry about the fishes he now sleeps with being disturbed by his snoring, though, Seal Team 6 cured his sleep apnea – with extreme prejudice!). How strange that they’ve covered up the dialysis equipment but let in the C-PAP – it’s only a matter of time that some birther notices this and constructs an elaborate conspiracy…
As with all bad rumor info that won’t die, the rumors of kidney failure and dialysis were always just that – unsubstantiated stories.
There are reports that Obama was treated for kidney STONES at one point…but that is a much different thing… but then again, with how rumors spread and get exagerrated beyond belief, one can see how one minor story got expanded and became the whole bigger kidney failure myth that won’t die…
I heard he almost choked on a kidney pie served with fava beans and a nice Chianti.
You don’t work for FOX do you?
So I don’t know how exactly it works when a president goes on to a military base, but it seems like it would be standard security procedure to make sure everyone in attendance, civilian and military alike (aside from Secret Service of course) is unarmed. You wouldn’t let a civilian carry a gun into a presentation by the president; why would the military be any more trustworthy?
When the shooting by a Muslim soldier at Fort Hood happened in 2009, several commenters on various blogs noted that most people on base are unarmed. MPs carry weapons on duty, but unless someone else is on their way to or from the firing range, they won’t be carrying loaded weapons.
Ugh! What an unfortunate typo. My apologies.
Code Name: Geronimo!
I wonder how will European Obot troops, posting on this blog, spin this issue to defend Obama. If this is not a proof that Obama is a racist – what else do you need?
> If this is not a proof that Obama is a racist – what else do you need?
Poor nc1, still projecting?
> European Obot troops
Ha-ha, the French and the Germans defending reason and sanity, that really eats at you, doesn’t it?
“OMG ze Germans are infadink our blogs, efryvan to ze Rezko, uh, rescue, meine Freunde!” 😉
I have yet to make this mistake but some of my relatives have. I have heard TV and radio broadcasters do the same thing. The radio people were always on the hate networks and likewise for many of the TV people; however, I have also heard local TV people, with no clear ideology, do it. Here’s an interesting Tweet:
DNA MATCH IS CONFIRMED. It was Osama Bin Laden who was killed. I think pictures being released of the Body of Obama is next.”
I think we might have something like a spoonerism effect going on between the words “Obama” and “Osama”. They differ in only one letter and all other sounds are equivalent. I’m only using “spoonerism” as a placeholder here, I’m (pretty) sure there is a precise term for this linguistic phenomenon.
The good news is you are not intentionally smearing Obama when you make this mistake. The bad news is Fox News can do an “opps, we didn’t mean that” excuse when they are intentionally smearing Obama.
[stream of commentscientious post, feel free to move to off-topic]
And if he’s racist he’s ineligible? Thank you for reminding us that this really has nothing to do with eligibility. You just don’t like Obama.
I’m sure DoD selected the operations code name. If a story appeared in the press about the name originally being “Geronimo” but was changed to “Operation Viagra Charm” after administration pressure, you would be screaming about “political correctness” and micro-management.
Obama on Osama – backup press release
The notion that some of us Yurpeans are Obama worshipers couldn’t be farther from the truth.
Speaking for myself, I thought the code name “Geronimo” (presumably chosen by some Pentagon person?) was rather ironic, even surprisingly perceptive, since it might be argued that Geronimo wasn’t a terrorist but someone who had very good reasons to oppose and attack the United States.
Maybe someone within the Pentagon is aware that the US of A doesn’t always wear a “white hat” and that there are certainly plenty of folks around the world with understandable grudges against America and the desire to retaliate.
I do not have any problems with the US trying to crush its enemies, that’s what empires do, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t see the other point of view.
It occurred to me that an ever better code-name for Osama would have been “Jugurtha”, an Algerian “made” by the Romans, betrayed by the Romans, who had the audacity of revolting against the Empire and even win a few battles before being captured and dragged in chains in triumph in Rome.
But I’m probably getting too far OT.
Is this “obotic” enough for you, you demented bigot?
Wow…you are a bitter little troll. So angry that all your little pet theories were shot to hell that you’re going to find any irrational thing to try to smear our Commander in Chief.
As has been said earlier….the President doesn’t pick the code names….the Pentagon does (and prior to Gulf War I, they were picked at random…not sure what the current process is). Why don’t you show your true patriotism and now say some nasty things about our military too?
I felt really horrible and was upset with myself for making that mistake yesterday.
In a bit of irony that made me feel better, I turned on the TV to watch Jon Stewart and his first segment yesterday touched on that very same topic of messing up between those two names…
…so now I dont’ feel so bad. I just hope not to make that mistake again.
Woah…but then again, here’s about the most extreme example of a reporter consistently messing it up. You have to watch this to grasp just how badly she mangles it…to the point that it almost becomes Ron Burgondy level comedy…
It seems that the people who keep harping on the fact that bin Laden was unarmed, would prefer that he had been armed. I won’t even try to entertain their reasoning.
Osama bin Laden had ample opportunities to surrender. I don’t know if he had a genuine opportunity to surrender on his last day, but I don’t care. He made his choices.
Actually, I would be upset if the rules of engagement were anything but ‘shoot to kill’. No person in that compound was worth the risk of a member of Seal Team 6 getting a hangnail…
> And if he’s racist he’s ineligible?
No, it’s just that the racist birthers, as all racists, would like to project their racism, preferably on a black person.
That way, they can maybe tell themselves “I’m a good Christian… I’m not a racist… he’s a racist… it’s maybe even OK to be racist towards a racist… and Jesus, I swear to you, I only hate his white half… really…”.
This always reminds me of the Rocky Horror Picture Show where Dr von Scott has a hard time suppressing his Hitler salute reflex… 😉
Actually, the number of Europeans who associate Geronimo with a Native American is very small. On our children’s TV “geronimo” was explained as “hup-sake” (and off we go). Some children wondered why they took the name of a mouse (google Geronimo Stilton) for this operation. My son climed he knew the answer;”they had to be as silent as mice”. (still, you get it?)
No idea why it is supposed they compared Osama to Geronimo, rather than the Seals who performed the raid.
1 = US President,
0 = Birthers/ Bin Laden/ Trump/ Huckabee
The “TRUTH will set you free”, you are free now, move along, nothing to see here.
This seemed to be the closest blog post to show this link.
If you haven’t seen this funny image going around yet, here is the White House War Room during the Bin Laden kill mission as Super Heroes:
That’s been Photoshopped. Here’s the real one:
or is this the real one?
No, it’s this one.
LOL! I loved the Wookie in the picture in the second one…
> Actually, the number of Europeans who associate Geronimo with a Native American is very small.
I usually associate “Geronimo” with a battle cry – something you’d shout if you were jumping 60 feet off a cliff into the water.
Same here. Of course I get the reference to the actual Geronimo too, but I grew up with that being the battle cry you yelled when you leapt out at or off of something.
