The Obama propaganda squad some call the mainstream media delight in reporting the high proportion of Republicans who believe the President needs to confirm his eligibility for the highest office in the land. The Obama propaganda squad sneer that this is a demonstration of how crazy Republicans are. Comparing “Birthers” with “Truthers”.
I by no means acknowledge any similarity between the two issues. Obama could easily allay concerns about his eligibility by opening sealed records of his past and allowing examination of his real birth certificate. He won’t. The claim that the US Government led by its President attacked the World trade Centre is a fantastic claim alleging an incredible conspiracy of the kind that could never in reality exist. One truly does have to be crazy to buy into such a story.
Obama’s mainstream media use the offensive term “birther” to try and bracket those concerned with Obama’s Constitutional eligibility with the Twin Towers “Truthers”. This is an obscene propaganda tactic and another example of the corruption of the mainstream media into a partisan socialist force. One that also exposes their true fear that one day the truth about Obama will out.
All that said, its still handy to reflect on what proportion of Democrats buy into the “Truther” theory. Ben Smith of Politico writes on the issue today-
“How likely is it that people in the federal government either assisted in the 9/11 attacks or took no action to stop the attacks because they wanted the United States to go to war in the Middle East?” the poll asked.
A full 22.6% of Democrats said it was “very likely.” Another 28.2% called it “somewhat likely.”
That is: More than half of Democrats, according to a neutral survey, said they believed Bush was complicit in the 9/11 terror attacks.
