The left is trying to silence their opponents and their competitors in the public marketplace of ideas... One issue in which the ethnocentric issue groups have been trying to silence me is on the issue of illegal immigration. Many of those, if you will, have migrated to me here recently because I, even though I said I believe the President is a citizen of the United States, I don't understand why he shouldn't produce a birth certificate. My God, you're talking about the third rail of American journalism, baby! That's it. I'm not going to back off.
The Obama administration has presented the birth certificate to the public...many times. Your knowledge of the "long-form" certificate is astoundingly idiotic. The State of Hawaii has reported, multiple times, that the long-form version of the birth certificate was trashed when the state went digital with birth certificates. The short-form is an official birth certificate in the state of Hawaii. End...of...story. Except that a local newspaper in Hawaii reported Obama's birth the day he was born. Seriously, Lou, see a doctor. See a psychiatrist. Somebody. Anybody. Obama has already provided official documentation claiming he was born in America. This documentation has been authenticated by the state of Hawaii.
He goes on...
And tea-bagging queen Rachel Maddow over at MSNBC, she wanted another shot so apparently she twisted, she tried to twist my words. She ignored my statements on the issue. In other words, she was not being intellectually honest. Imagine that. [...] She lied. I never said I'm a 'birther.' I'm not. I don't know how many times I've said, 'Barack Obama is a citizen of the United States. Why not release your birth certificate?' What is the big deal with saying that?
Not saying you're a birther doesn't mean you aren't one, Lou. Since you are asking why Obama hasn't released his birth certificate...when he has...multiple times...makes you just as stupid and as "birther" as people who somehow believe he wasn't born in this country. I listened to Rachel's comments about you, and they were completely accurate. She is not lying at all when she claims that you (read: yourself and CNN) have contributed to the continuation of the "debate". The big deal with asking Obama to release his birth certificate is that he HAS released it.
I reiterate, Lou Dobbs, RESIGN. Your complete ignorance and stupefying arrogance in your stance without one shred of evidence you've actually looked into the matter AT ALL is a travesty to journalism and CNN and an insult to your viewers/listeners.
And a runner-up here to our lovely Senator Inhofe, who says that birthers "have a point". "I don't discourage it."
Oh? Later that day:
"The White House has not done a very good job dispelling the concerns of these citizens." What should Obama do? Make a time machine and export these morons to Hawaii in 1961 to watch his mother give birth to him? No one and nothing will convince these idiots that Obama was born in America. And all you are doing is stoking the fire.
