Those crazy Birthers, Part Sixteen

Conservative Republican, singer Pat Boone and member of the Beverly Hills Tea Party is a birther. Hold on, there's a chapter of the Tea Party called the Beverly Hills Tea Party? I thought it was a grass roots campaign that got its support from the common man, not some fat cats. But I digress.

At a California GOP event on Friday, Boone said, "Asked if believes Obama was born in the U.S., Boone said, “I don’t. … I was in Kenya about a year and a half ago and everybody there says, you know, your president was born here.”

“Why else would he be hiding all of his records? He’s spending millions of dollars so that we do not have his records. And experts have already looked at and been able to verify that this long-form document is a fraud. … But the media ignores it….a total fraud. A photo-shopped fraud.” From Politico and the San Francisco Examiner.

Okay, Pat let's go over this again. When you crazy birthers put out his nonsense, President Obama produced his short form birth certificate. That's the form Hawaii gives you when you request it. As this insanity continued, Hawaiian government officials said they had seen the original certificate and he was born in Hawaii. And by the way, Hawaiian newspapers had reported Obama's birth! But that was still not good enough for you birthers. And by the way this is racist, because of the proof tha Obama had shown. If Obama was white and his descendants were from England, we would not be debating this. Anyway, Obama had to get a special exception from Hawaii and got the long form. Sigh. And it's still not good enough for yahoos like Boone. (Here's my old post about the long form certificate that Obama produced. And here's my post showing this birther movement is racist.)

But back to Pat Boone. He offers his allegations without proof. There's not one witness he produces from Kenya. There's not one witness to state that all of Obama's birth certificates were forged. None. Boone accuses Obama of not being an American. Yet, he engages in un-American behavior. Yeah, he denies Obama's citizenship without due process.
