Vigilance: Iím Banning Birfers, Truthers, and Groups Affiliated Therewith (Limpwrist RINO ALERT)
Redstate ^ | 2/12/10 | Ericka Erickson

Posted on 02/12/2010 1:22:29 PM PST by pissant

We’ve always banned truthers at RedState. Increasingly, we have also banned a number of individuals who think Barack Obama is disqualified from being President because despite the Republican Governor of Hawaii confirming the legitimacy of the Democratic President’s birth origin as a citizen of the United States.

Today I want to reaffirm and make it more definitive. If you think 9/11 was an inside job or you really want to debate whether or not Barack Obama is an American citizen eligible to be President, RedState is not a place for you.

Birfers and Truthers are not welcome here. Period. End of Story.

But I want to expand on this too.

The tea party movement is in danger of getting a bad reputation for allowing birfers and truthers to share the stage. At the National Tea Party, Joseph Farah treated the birfer issue as legitimate. In Texas, tea party activists have rallied to Debra Medina who, just yesterday, refused to definitely dismiss the 9/11 truther conspiracy as crackpot nonsense. If a candidate cannot do that, we cannot help that candidate. It’s that simple.

President because despite the Republican Governor of Hawaii confirming the legitimacy of the Democratic President’s birth origin as a citizen of the United States.

Did this individual see the long form birth certificate that's been supressed?

Why not just release the document?

Or was this governor there present at the birth?

“Birfers”. Is that like mouthbreathers? Or the extra-chromosome folks Al Gore insulted?

If Birfer, shouldn’t it also be Twoofer?

Who wrote this? Barney Frank?

How about people who simply think that Obama hates America — regardless of which of the “57” states he claims to be from?

I don't want to debate whether he was eligible to be president, I just want to stick out like a sore thumb and repeat that he has not produced requested paperwork despite all claims to the contrary.

It's like John Kerry's claim that he did sign his 180 form.

Why drag heels over such matters?

And why spin it to say that they have turned over paperwork when they have not?

We just want to see Obama’s Long Form Birth Certificate with doctor and hospital of record.

Zer0 was born in Hawaii? Cool.

There should be no problem with this document then, should there?

There was confusion on the hospital, what with Snopes.Com declaring “the truth” and then reversing that “truth” after 8 or 9 months.

Then there are the dozen or so articles around the world of “Kenyan-born Obama”.

But, hey, he was born in Hawaii.

OK, no problem. Why not show the Long Form Birth Certificate to ONE federal court?

Keep in mind we’re still going to fight his uber-liberal agenda, either way.

Truther means 9-11 truther.

I heard a caller yesterday when the Medina flap was playing out on Texas radio yesterday.

He kept trying to tie “truther” to 9-12ers. 9-12ers being tea party people. 9-11ers being WTC attack conspiracy theorists.

He did this numerous times. I don’t think it was accidental.

It’s unfortunate that Redstate comes out with something like this. They have just proven that they prefer to be clueless, uninformed, and another ignorant denier of certain facts relating to the birth certificate issue.

Then I propose that Ericka Erickson of "Redstate" fame, be banned from Free Republic for the attempted supression of free speech and opinion on her website.

And, for issuing a statement to "warn" people that she would "BAN" them...

The only time a BAN has any meaning or effect is IF people actually WANT what you are banning.

We don't think like she does, so we can't post on her wall...good trade.

I guessed that but it’s so silly. Truther is a liberal belief. It’s extreme anti-Bush/anti-Israel not typical of any republican group.

He’s said it (I think in reference to whether or not abuses occurred at Gitmo and whether or not said agit prop was helping terrorists recruit jihadists).

He did not originate the phrase. But he’s certainly willing to acknowledge it is effective strategy.

Obama had a British father.

How does he qualify as a natural born citizen, a requirement in the Constitution for the office of President? Not “native” born, but”natural” born

You don’t have to be a birther to ask that simple question.

I am not inclined to be a “birther.” I really didn’t think any party would take the risk of producing a non-native for president. Obama raised my attention because how hard he fought, how many lawyers he hired, how much money he spent, to prevent the release of a simple document that many of us have to produce for various documentary reasons throughout our lives. He’s fought so hard to hide his past, and I just can’t see a public figure doing that unless there is something to hide.

That’s why I’m a proponent of getting just one state to require registration of a long-form birth cirtificate with the secretary of state before that person can get on the ballot for president.

That way on next election we’ll either clear the issue out with the production of the document, or Obama will fight the requirement in court, in which case it will be front-and-center news and probably bring most of the electorate to question his eligibility.

I asked yesterday, if Boosh was congizent of the 9-11 attacks and let them occur to justify wartime actions and an expansion of powers, then why did they use information obtained from the KSM interogation at Gitmo to thwart the Heathrow attack? Why not let it occur to say “see? this is what we’re fighting!”

Or was the disclosure of some of the planned followups also a fabrication?

There’s more of a trail to indicate that Democrats conspired to cause the so called banking collapse. Certainly more than just “willful negligence”.

That didn't happen. What happened is that the governor announced that they had his bc secured in a safe, and would give no information as to what was on it.

No one denies he has a bc. The questions are all about the circumstances of its issuance. The governor didn't go there.

Now let me understand what a birther is supposed to be. Obama said he was Kenyian born before he said he wasn’t. Must be a birther. Seeems his grandmother made a statement that he was born in Kenya. That was before she was placed in quarantine. Seems also his cousin, uncle and neighbors in Kenya said they were present at his birth. Must be birthers. Okay. I think I got it now. Thanks

Consistent? How does one equate the fact that Obama has never released his vault BC with a theory that GWB and Co. worked with terrorists to cause the worst attack on the US in history.

That’s like comparing those who insist on Gov’t transparency with those who say the FreeMasons and Illuminati control the entire world.

No. She didn't. WND made the claim.

Obama's Birth Certificate Verified By State

Fukino said that no state official, including Gov. Linda Lingle, ever instructed that Obama's certificate be handled differently from any other.

Yeah. I know. The title is a lie.

Hey, I guess its ok for the son of Osama bin laden “BORN IN AMERICA” to become president in 2016 WOO HOO!!

You have to have two parents who are CITIZENS of the United States and be born on the territory in order to be a Natural Born Citizen.

Otherwise you are born with the citizenship of TWO Nations at your birth and are therefore DISQUALIFIED from EVER becoming President.

Why is it that people can’t get this simple concept?

The damned Birth Certificate is Irrelevant, where he was born is COMPLETELY Irrelevant. 100%. He could have been born in the White House and it would not have mattered. He had more than one citizenship at birth. He isn’t a Natural Born Citizen.

FORGET ABOUT THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Barry could NEVER have been a Natural Born Citizen from the instant the sperm hit the egg for heavens sake!
