Even when this president has completed his second term, there will always be people who hate the concept of an African-American as president of the United States. It’s just the nature of the enduring hatred for progress that a small group of people will never accept.
I have another website that I eventually stopped updating because after Barack Obama won his second term, my job was done on that site.
However, I’ve noticed quite a number of anonymous searches after I stopped blogging on the site. Their search options allowed me to speculate that they were probably looking for dirt on the president or perhaps just researching the many negative claims about the President.
Some of you may be familiar with the site called Sinclair Watch a website dedicated to exposing a man who claimed to have had a homosexual affair with Obama back in 1999.
If you haven’t heard about this it may be because as much as the media wanted to jump on the story if it were true, their investigations showed that Larry Sinclair had a checkered past (to say the least) and there were a few other issues as well. So his story never hit the mainstream media but he had an internet following that was pretty massive…for a while. That is, until Orly Taitz and her birther movement came into play.
Now it seems that although the birther movement has fizzled out, the die-hards in the GOP have decided to find something in the “birther movement” meme that may stick.
I can’t begin to discuss the insanity and the inanity of such a move.
Another Republican is accusing President Obama of secretly being a Kenyan man who forged his birth certificate in order to get elected President of the United States. This time the theorist is Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC), chairman of the House Homeland Security Oversight Subcommittee.
Duncan appeared on the radio program TruNews with Rick Wiles on Friday where the host asked the South Carolina congressman whether the House would go after Obama’s “phony identification papers.” Duncan initially demurred, but then agreed with Wiles that Obama could be lying about his birth certificate, calling for Congress to “revisit” the issue of “the president’s validity.”
WILES: While you guys are rounding up and deporting the illegal immigrants, any chance the House may actually pursue Barack Obama’s phony identification papers? That’s the original scandal, congressman.
DUNCAN: People should have voted against him in November. I’m afraid that that wouldn’t get to the Supreme Court where it ought to get.
WILES: But if we know they’re lying about all these other things, why not go back and say, “well maybe the first scandal was a lie, too?”
DUNCAN: There you go. I’m all with you. Let’s go back and revisit some of these things because Americans have questions about not only the IRS scandal but also about the president’s validity.
Other prominent Republican birthers include Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R), Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R), former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R), and Reps. Steve King (R-IA), Richard Hudson (R-NC), Mike Coffman (R-CO), and Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA).
At this point, the birther conspiracy is so thoroughly debunked that Republicans could accuse Obama of secretly being a Snorlax and it would be no less credible than accusing him of being a modern-day Manchurian candidate.
In his three years in Congress, Duncan has developed a reputation for controversial statements. He has invoked other conspiracy theories peddled on websites like the Drudge Report, falsely claimed that he didn’t vote to extend big oil subsidies, and warned that background checks will lead to Rwandan-like genocide in the United States.
