An Attack That Came Out of the Ether ( excerpt from page 3 of 4)
Of the file folders that are spread in neat rows across Allen's desk, only one is bulging. It holds printouts of the reams of conversations about Obama's religion appearing on Free Republic. Since its start in 1996 by Jim Robinson of Fresno, Calif., the site has grown into a home for discussion of all types -- though it is particularly noted for spirited political discussions dominated by conservatives and libertarians. Freepers, as they're called, converse with a varying degree of transparency. Most remain anonymous.
Allen counted 23 freepers among those engaging in regular discussions about Obama's religion, and isolated a handful whom she began to suspect as having a role in the e-mail.

Not to mention the left has been behind several trolling campaigns.
She continues to idolize the Fool’s-Golden Calf, as do most of the 47%.
So her position is that being called a Muslim is a “smear?”
It was a “smear” to research and make rational conclusions about someone running for president e that the article itself admits was a mystery?
This article is actually funny in many places albeit unintentionally I’m sure.
They compare her intellect to Einstein’s, because he worked at Institute for Advanced Studies as well.
December 29: A first version of the “Who Is Barack Obama?” email is captured by Snopes.com, a Web site dedicated investigating rumors and myths that spread via the Internet.
January 8: A FreeRepublic.com reader using the name “Cedar” posts a version of the email, which associates Obama with radical Islam. His post garners only 13 replies.
January 16: Three versions of the email show up on FreeRepublic.com, including the version that was earlier posted on the Web site Snopes.com.
January 30: FreeRepublic.com reader FrouFrou posts the Ted Sampley article “Obama: Who Is He?”
April 21: Obama tells The New York Times:
“It’s not just that I’m a Christian and some of these emails are misinforming people. They’re also feeding on anti-Muslim sentiment and that’s also wrong.”
June 12: The Obama campaign unveils a Web site called Fight the Smears to address the email rumors.
What I find interesting about this is the amount of effort that is being exerted to deny that Obama is a Muslim.
I guess she thinks that being Muslim is a negative thing.
The esteemed Doctor Allen is a political theorist ... the mind is a terrible thing to waste ....
it was supposed to be a genius level of deduction to trace the e-mails; it came at the beginning of the “fight the smears “ campaign.
BTTT. Important find and connections.
This is downright creepy.
Big Brother is watching.
It is not how he views himself. The point is she fails to grasp that it is how they view him. Once he was part and they will never let go of the rent boy.
I recall reading about Ms. Einstein (Allen), and I recall doing my best to ignore this sad little lady who was screaming for attention.
"He once got in trouble for making faces during Koran study classes in his elementary school...Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent...[and] described the call to prayer as 'one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.' - Nicholas Kristof in New York Slimes (March 6, 2007)
Unfortunately for the wapo the article preserves observations and predictions of how dangerous Obama was and would be — observations and predictions which were confirmed by the events of the last 6 years.
The Swift Boaters were not smear artists. Obama has lied about so much that anything he says is suspect. He even had Susan Rice lie for him as regards the consulate.
So....does this attempt to totally intimidate the members of Free Republic, actually VALIDATE the rumors that the Current Occupant now squatting in the White Hut really is a secret Muslim?
Not many Christian values seem to be displayed, that is for sure.
But the trending of activities, taken together, certainly indicate that when it comes to a showdown, the Current Occupant has asserted, from “Audacity of Hope”: ‘I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.’
Things are already getting pretty ugly.
