birthers, Birchers & the KKK
Submitted by boisentv to Kevin Richert‘s blog:
The so-called “birthers” who are spreading the lie that Barack Obama is not a citizen are the same folks who fervently followed John Birch some years ago, and before that were prominent in the Ku Klux Klan. These people are simply seeking a new way to legitimize themselves without openly admitting their racist beliefs. They would prefer an imbecile like George W. Bush or Sarah Palin to any educated black man in the white house, and will use any means to discredit Obama. Soon, like the Clintons, Obama will be accused of every crime under the sun. Anything to distract folks from the truth about health care, energy policy, etc.
