Two films smear Obama

“There is no evidence for any of this”

So says The Daily Beast’s Michelle Goldberg of Dinesh D’Souza’s book and film, Obama’s America, and it’s claims about Barack Obama’s mother. Goldberg has equally disparaging remarks for Joel Gilbert’s film, Dreams from My Real Father.

Despite their dubious claims, Obama’s America reached the number one spot on the NY Times bestseller list and Dreams is being mailed to a reported one million voters in Ohio and other states.

The title of Goldberg’s article is: “With ‘Dreams From My Real Father,’ Have Obama Haters Hit Rock Bottom?” My answer to this question is that Obama haters have been bottom feeders from the beginning, and this is not a new low. I will admit that this latest round is far worse than what I wrote about in my article, “It’s an insult to his mother” back in August of 2009. I can’t help but believe that most Americans will not react kindly to Obama’s mother being portrayed as a “fat whore.”

Personally, I think Obama takes after his grandfather, Stanley Dunham. Look at the eyes.

    Over on my blog, I’m in the middle of a multi-day series on Gilbert’s movie. Whatever one thinks of him and his movie *now*, I can practically guarantee that that opinion will be even lower by week’s end.

    Already up: Gilbert’s previous celebrity DVD “documentaries,” before he retconned them into “mockumentary spoofs.”

    Just personally, this stuff makes me think of all republicans as absolutely disgusting creatures that I would never, ever support in any way.

    With the exception of his hair and skin color, Obama is spitting image of his grandfather, Stanley Dhunham.

    Yes not at all unlike his father-in-law which was enough excuse in the past for some of these vermin to have suggested that he is actually his father.

    If anyone would like to help me out, I think I need some help on the claim that there is not a raised seal because it is not visible over on this site:

    I have pointed out repeatedly that pdf scans often do not pick up raised seals, but I don’t get any headway.

    By the way, i am an anti-birther.

    I read this quote from Gilbert in Loren’s article:

    Gilbert: “we do have in L.A. forensic equipment in different film studios that we’ve worked with as well as somebody who’s actually had some experience with the police.

    This Gilbert can be a very funny guy.

    Cue in birthers claiming that the guy on the left is actually Obama “whitened in Photoshop” in 3… 2… 😉

    To be fair, Obama taking after his maternal grandfather in facial appearance, whilst true, doesn’t really in itself have any significant impact on claims that FMD was his father.

    Evidentially speaking, Obama’s considerable facial resemblance to his half brother, now in China, Mark Ndesanjo, whose father was BO Sr, has far more significance in that respect.;_ylt=AiecWru0NEJPSyhFCEcPFno4hJp4;_ylc=X1MDMjAyMzM5MjMxMgRfcgMyBGZyA3lmcC10LTcwMgRuX2dwcwMwBG9yaWdpbgN1ay55YWhvby5jb20EcXVlcnkDbWFyayBuZGVzYW5qbwRzYW8DMQ–?p=mark+ndesanjo&toggle=1&cop=mss&ei=UTF-8&fr=yfp-t-702

    Well, they can all talk about who looks like who, but this guy proved it with a sciency kind of thingy:
    Click on “The Resemblance”. Oh, just go ahead and click on everything there, it’s worth it.
    His science is every bit as good as any birther’s.

    The final installment of my series is now up:

    The pictures of ‘Ann’ that Gilbert found, and which he claims were taken by Frank Marshall Davis in late 1960?

    They were *published* as early as 1958. When Ann Dunham was only fifteen. Two years before the Dunham family even moved to Hawaii.

    Thank you loren for that article.

    I have encountered several posters- and one in particular who is apparently obsessed with the idea that Obama mother posed nude- and one of the things that I kept pointing out was that he may have been uknowingly(and quite unconcernadly) sending people to see underage porn.

    Birthers are obsessed with sex and Obama and the facts be damned.
