An Actual Right Wing Headline: ‘Obama Turned 53 — Or Did He?’
The birther conspiracy website WorldNetDaily is questioning President Obama’s birth year, too. The title of a post reads, “Obama Turned 53 — Or Did He?” Because we all know what a tricky trickster Obama is. Also, he’s black.
Ian Millhiser tweeted the image, because he’s obviously from Kenya, too.
WND columnist Jack Cashill writes that Obama is not telling the truth about not only his birth place, but also about the year he was born.
The writer preposterously refers to a 2007 speech given by Obama delivered in Selma, Alabama, about how his “existence might not have been possible had it not been for some of the folks here today.”
You see, no one could have had an impact on Obama’s life just a few years after he was born, according to the author. Or ever really. Did I mention that Obama is black? That means that Republicans who tout patriotism because the Founding Fathers impacted their lives so deeply are all full of sh*t.
Right Wing Watch reports:
Obama was born in 1961, while the Selma to Montgomery march occurred in 1965. Of course, Obama’s remarks clearly referred to the progress of the Civil Rights Movement in general, but Cashill interprets his words literally to suggest that Obama inadvertently admitted that his birth certificate is phony.
The author writers, “According to his birth certificate, Obama was born in 1961, four years before anyone outside of Alabama ever heard of the town.”
That settles it. Obama. is. a. usurper.
And for any of you born after 1968, Martin Luther King Jr., could not have had a profound influence of your life. Suck it up.
