Birthers Claim Obama Created the Birther Conspiracy

The birthers now blame the left for their ball of crazy.

The birther movement is back with a new conspiracy that states not only was Barack Obama not born in America, but that the whole birther movement is a creation of Obama and the Left, in order to make the right look crazy. Both Tom Tancredo and Glenn Beck have embraced this conspiracy within a conspiracy that, in essence blames the entire birther movement on Obama and the Left.

According to Think Progress, Tom Tancredo told Alan Colmes on his Fox News Radio show that, “Now they very well not want to show it because they want to propagate this whole thing that’s going on about birthers. … They may be doing it for that reason; I don’t know why they don’t want anyone to see it. … They want it propagated because you know. Later Colmes pointed out that birtherism makes his party looks nuts, and Tancredo replied, “Yeah well maybe that’s why they don’t produce document, I don’t know.”

That was pretty crazy, but not as crazy as Glenn Beck claiming that the Left leaked a video of Michelle Obama calling Kenya her husband’s homeland, to fuel the birther conspiracy.

Here is Beck on April 6 courtesy of Media Matters:

Beck called the birther issue the biggest waste of time ever, but added, “I believe this is being released by operatives on the left that want to stir the pot.”

Here is the video of Michelle Obama calling Kenya Obama’s home country that has the birthers so up in arms.

The birther movement has now devolved to a conspiracy within a conspiracy, because now it isn’t just that Obama is hiding the origin of his birth, but that he is doing it intentionally in order to make the right wing look crazy. In essence, the birthers have been reduced to blaming the Left and Obama for their insanity. They are saying that it isn’t their fault that they are crazy. It is Obama’s fault, because he devised this whole birther thing as a way to make the right look bad. The birthers have now created a conspiracy to justify their conspiracy. This is how far off the rails these fringe right lunatics have gone.

Barack Obama was born in the United States. He is a United States citizen. The evidence is obvious even if the birthers refuse to believe it. There is a reason why every birther court case gets tossed. Not only is the legal certificate of live birth, which is an accepted legal document by the United States government for proof of citizenship, widely available, but the birthers have never been able to produce any evidence that Obama is not a citizen. The idea that Obama is to blame for their weak minded stupidity and racism would be funny, if it wasn’t so sad.

  1. I can excuse Beck for this because he has lost over a million viewers since January. But Tancredo? He is a picture of a man losing his mind

  2. President Obama appears to have the soundness of mind the right wing conspiracy theorists apparently don’t.

    I guess he is a strong enough, tough enough, patient enough, forgiving enough adult man to shoulder all the “blame” these whiny brats want to foist onto him.

    There ARE bounds of behavior though that even insane people must not cross — when someone shows up at the same airport the President does, bristling with armament and diagrams, he should be held without bail, not released on bond. Are local law enforcement and judges as nuts as these armed conspiracy theorists are?

  3. Of course the left wing nuts are responsible for the birther conspiracy. The left feared the birther movement so much that they created the birthers to start a movement and then told the birthers to act all crazy so as to give the birther movement a bad name.

    What about this doesn’t make sense to you libtards? It makes perfect sense to anyone who has ever taken one single logic class.

    The crazy left is the birthplace of all conspiracy theories. Birthers, 9/11 Truthers was also created to make the right wing look nutty and dangerous. The JFK assassination is also a left-wing conspiracy as is the Holocaust and the Russian genocide under Stalin.

    Give it a little more time and we’ll all surely expose the fact that Kim Jung Il is under the conspiratorial control of the left. Castro will be proven a left wing puppet of Obama. Obama created the movement that put Castro into power.

    The left wingnuts conspire to all sorts of things. How else do you explain all the problems in Alaska and all the probes facing Sarah Palin? Three words: Left. Wing. Nut. Jobs.

    Who shot JR? The left wing created JR, then created the shooter, then goaded the shooter into shooting JR just to make right wing gun owners look like crazy fools.

    Left wing libtards, we’re on to you!

    It’s like that old Texas saying…I know you have them in your damn blue states as well…fool me once, shame on, uh, you, no me…wait, uh, fool me once then twice, you should be ashamed…

    Whatever.

    We can’t be fooled again!

    We’re on to you!

  4. @Conservative Heart,

    “The left feared the birther movement so much that they created the birthers to start a movement and then told the birthers to act all crazy so as to give the birther movement a bad name.”

    pls read your own post over. It doesnt seem to make a drop of sense. The left feared the birthers so much that they created the birthers?

    Are you Glenn Beck behind them sunglasses?

  5. @Shiva,

    first of all that quote you cited of Conservative Heart makes perfect sense in the context of what this article was all about, but that’s not even the issue i want to take up with you. if you really took Conservative Heart’s comment seriously, you need to take a class on sarcasm 101 and perhaps learn to develop your sense of humour. lighten up! it was a satirical jab at the right. sop relax, he’s on your side!

  6. @Shiva,

    You’re not the first to fall for it:-) CH does a great job satirizing the crazy far right wing nut jobs.

    Cheers~~

  7. Wasn’t it Ronald Regan who once said he was sick of people blaming government and society for the actions of the individual?
