Mika Brzezinski On Trump’s ‘Mean’ Birther Crusade: ‘This Promotes Hate’
Mediaite ^ | March 31, 2011 | Matt Schneider

Posted on 03/31/2011 7:20:38 AM PDT by maggief

EXCERPT

Brzezinski’s view on Trump’s fascination with the birth certificate:

“I don’t like this, because I think this promotes hate and this brings us back and I thought we had gotten past this. I really do, and I don’t care how serious he feels about it, there are more important things we need to be talking about. He had a chance. Everybody wanted to hear what he had to say, because of exactly where we are in this country. And people were beginning to look at him and I’m sorry this is a bad call.”

Well Mika, that Boy King that you worship could make all the hate stop in short order. He has the power.

I suppose it is mean and hateful to force children to produce their birth certificates and immunization records before starting kindergarten?

OK, I propose we end the whole issue.
Mr. Obama, produce the documentation and we’ll stop this whole PROOFER thing.

There is nothing hateful about wanting to see the rule of law followed and the constitution followed.

What’s hateful is the way Obama supporters paint everyone who questions eligibility as racist or haters.

We hate the double standards, it takes more ID to procure a Hazmat endorsement for a CDL license than it takes to become a lord authority figure politician who wastes our money and talks down to us.

And I guess it’s mean and hateful to have to show your child’s birth certificate to play Little League ball.

With all the flotsam and jetsam that has washed up on our shores, handing over a legal birth certificate absolutely must be required of those running for POTUS in the future.

The “0bama” that we think we know, as far as who he is, where he came from, etc, probably doesn’t exist, but...

What group of folks thought they could get away with this, anyway?

No sale, Commie.

YOUR side owns hate, and for that matter, murder, gross amorality and tyranny.

A dunce could merely glance at the history of the 20th century, and plainly see that.

‘This Promotes Hate’

Only IF there actually IS a BC and it is being withheld for ________________ (fill in the blank) reason.

If there is NOT a BC... it does not promote hate.... it only asks the honest questions (albeit a little late) about “O’s” birth... just EXACTLY as candidates previously have been asked and answered without issue because they HAD ONE!!!!

I guess calling all the proofers “racists” didn’t work out so well...

No one wants to be called a “hater”, but there has to be a bit of truth in it in order for such an accusation to take any hold.

I could understand saying it is stupid, irrelevant, ridiculous, distracting, etc. but promoting hate? It makes no sense. Like blaming Palin for the Giffords shooting, it is not something a reasonable person would come up with on their own. To me it suggests someone who mindlessly parrots a message given to them by a political operative.

It’s pretty obvious that 0bama was raised to hate,

and “getting evenism” is the whole of his ideology.

I have to put this into perspective.

Birther - A person who by being bound to the Constitution of the United States of America requests that “All” candidates for President of the United States show proof of their birth in the United States.

Truther - A person who believes that George Bush and the Israeli Government were directly responsible for blowing up the World Trade Center on 9/11 so they can instigate a war against Saddam Hussein and the Arab World.

Which of these two got more play in the MSM as being related to the truth?

And this is why Liberalism is a mental disorder.

“birther”... well, we understand that the person in question was indeed born...

Now, us “proofers” want documentation showing his eligibility for the office he holds.

So when my daughter is asked for her BC for softball this spring I can say, “What are you a hater?” (The argument of the left).

And when I show it, I can say, “Pow... Now you look like a real fool!” (The argument of the RINOs).

If either of the above makes sense. You need help.

It’s hateful to make someone with darker skin follow laws? So Martin Luther king jr, who wanted us all to be judged by our character, no doubt including the morality of obeying decent laws, is racist, but you, who feel that darker people should be held to lesser standards, are not?

I love the birther lie that if only the One would show his long form certificate, they’d shut up and go away. It totally ignores two facts.

1). There would be nothing on the long form that would contradict the COLB.
2) Already there are Birthers who, through their misstatement of law, claim that Obama is ineligible no matter what. So they’re not going to go away, they’ll just either change their tactics or lie about the long form just like they did with the COLB.

This is where Trump is on the right track.

For most Americans producing a birth certificate is a routine requirement--no big deal. The more the left acts like asking Obama to produce it is a big deal, the more people are going to start questioning why it's a big deal.

The lack of documentation surrounding Obama is worrisome. No BC, no school records, no college records pretty much no records at all until he started community organizing in Chicago.

I am happy Tromp is keeping the heat on Obama to produce documentation proving he is in fact a natural born citizen. I might even send an email to my congressman to do the same.
