One might have differing opinions as to who created the birther movement. As we know, the core Obama conspiracy theory was first stated by an pseudonymous blogger; however, an obscure blogger doesn’t make a movement, and several key individuals helped make the birther movement what it eventually became. The only candidate I know who has actually claimed to have created the movement was Joseph Farah and his online news site WorldNetDaily. Farah said:
Well, [the birth certificate theory] is popular because of us. We essentially created it, didn’t we? There wasn’t a constituency out there waiting for this, [or] it was a way to make money. Those people had to be found.
Many birthers signed onto another theory of Obama ineligibility, an intent that they divined from the Framers of the Constitution that only persons born in the United States to two US citizen parents could become president. That’s a double whammy against Ted Cruz, who was born in Canada to only one US citizen parent.
Farah, however, doesn’t buy into the second theory, evidenced by his endorsement of Ted Cruz for president.
Ted Cruz is the real deal. That’s not to slight Donald Trump, who has played an invaluable role in this campaign – breaking the back of political correctness, presenting a positive vision forward for America and standing up to those who would prefer to see the nation borderless and rudderless.
If Trump turns out to be the winner of the GOP nomination, I will unhesitatingly support him.
Farah doesn’t mention anything about the Cruz eligibility controversy, but commenters on Farah’s WND article certainly did.
