Lots going on this weekend on the fringe right, so I thought I would take you all on a guided tour of the crazy.
Our first stop is the most poorly named website on the internet, the Astute Bloggers, where they ask if Obama’s mentor was a communist. Not content with mere red-baiting, our pals decide to kick it up a notch:
HERE’S A PHOTO OF OBAMA JUNIOR (MIDDLE), AND HERE’S ONE OF FRANK DAVIS (LEFT) AND BH OBAMA SENIOR (RIGHT).
* WHO LOOKS MORE LIKE FATHER AND SON, FRANK & BARRY OR BARRY AND OBAMA SENIOR?
* LOOK AT THE SUPRA-ORBITAL RIDGES, THE FOREHEAD, THE HAIRLINE, THE EYEBROWS, THE EYELIDS, THE JOWLS, THE CHEEKBONES – AND THE EARS.
* FACT: BARRY OBAMA JUNIOR LOOKS NOTHING LIKE BARACK OBAMA SENIOR, AND VERY MUCH LIKE FRANK DAVIS.
* AND BARRY HAS MANY OF FRANK’S TRAITS: LIKE A GIFT FOR WRITING, FOR INSTANCE.
* AND IT GIVES OBAMA JUNIOR A VERY DEEP CONNECTION TO CHICAGO – FRANK’S HOMETOWN
* REMEMBER: STANLEY ANN DUNHAM WAS PREGNANT WHEN SHE MARRIED OBAMA SENIOR. MAYBE IT WASN’T HIS CHILD.
* FRANK DAVIS WROTE IN HIS MEMOIR HE AND HIS WIFE HAD A THREESOME WITH A WHITE GIRL NAMED ANN. WAS THIS STANLEY AN DUNHAM?
* DID SHE MARRY OBAMA SENIOR BECAUSE SHE KNEW THE CHILD WOULD BE BLACK AND SHE NEEDED A HUSBAND? DID THEY MAKE A DEAL SO HE COULD STAY IN THE USA?
THIS CAN BE EASILY PROVEN: JUST GET A DNA TEST FROM A RELATIVE IN KENYA AND SEE IF IT MATCHES BARRY OBAMA JUNIOR’S.
Nothing like a little red-baiting and garden-variety phrenology and photo-shop genealogy to get this tour started off right.
Moving right along, we head over to our old buddy Dan Riehl’s joint, the Riehl World View, where we find that Dan Riehl is incensed by the Washington Post’s Ann Kornblut. Apparently, Ann made the mistake of pointing out that Sarah Palin is lying about visiting Iraq, and this has Dan livid:
Maybe it’s time the media did some serious looking into the early travels of a fellow who wants to be President, not Vice President of the United States – Barack Obama.
This isn’t crazy Obama Muslim Manchurian candidate stuff. Remember the Clintonite who off-handedly dropped the “drug dealer” line during the primaries? Well, anyone can source this below based upon MSM accounts, the news at the time or the few simple links provided. It’s certainly enough to make me curious about some things.***
For a college kid out of California via Hawaii who ends up in a NYC slum via Pakistan partying with admitted drug users – using well beyond what Obama has ever admitted to, especially given the particular era, that Pakistan voyage is one very curious trip no matter how you slice it. And I don’t mean for any possible Muslim/terror related reasons.
For example, if they had to lie about income to get the apartment cited below – how is it they paid for it seems a fair question? Did he deal drugs at Columbia? He certainly seems to have had the location and friends for it and the Obama campaign has gone to great lengths to cover up that period of his life. Frankly, I want to know why and I think America deserves to know, as well.
Maybe he was dealing drugs though his secret father Frank Marshall’s communist drug cartel. Again, since Sarah Palin is lying about Iraq, it would be irresponsible not to speculate that Obama is a drug dealer!
Our third stop is the wingnut mothership, Michelle Malkin, where we learn that Michelle is quite incensed by the way BARACK HUSSEIN DRUG DEALING STEALTH SON OF A COMMIE OBAMA placed a flower on a grave:
It’s a small gesture, but gestures matter at the hallowed grave site of so many murdered innocent Americans.
Barack Obama flings a memorial rose at Ground Zero like he’s a kid tossing pennies into a fountain at the shopping mall — or a spectator tossing flowers at a bullfight.
He doesn’t know what he’s doing.
Only a true America hater places flowers on graves like that.
Our final stop on the crazy train is at the Values Voters Summit, where we learn about a new family value:
At the Values Voter Summit this weekend, vendors sold an item called “Obama Waffles” featuring a racist cartoon of Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) on the box front — with “popping eyes and big, thick lips” — and another image of him wearing an Arab-like headdress on its top flap. Its creators, Mark Whitlock and Bob DeMoss, said it was meant as “political satire,” and sold the box for $10 from a booth at the Family Research Council event. CNN’s Lou Dobbs stopped by the booth and exclaimed, “My wife will love this!” A photo shows Dobbs with a box of the mix in his hand.
I hope you all have enjoyed this quick tour, and I think I speak for everyone when I state how thankful I am the right wing base and right wing blogosphere has decided to follow McCain’s lead and run a respectful, substance based campaign.
A Quebec businessman whose name is one of the many that have erroneously landed on the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s flight passenger watch list has decided to change his name to avoid lengthy security hassles at the airport.
Mario Labbé, an executive with a Montreal-based record company, says his Canadian passport triggers a red alert on the computers of U.S. customs agents every time he tries to board a flight to the U.S. — which is about once a month for the past seven years.
“I was pulled aside in a room … and you have to wait your turn to finally be released,” Labbé said. “An hour, an hour and a half, two hours, whatever it is after. Once I was caught in Miami like that for six hours.
“It’s always the same questions, about if I’ve lost my passport, if I’ve been to Japan — I don’t know why Japan, but in their file it was something to do with Japan.”
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security wrote a letter to Labbé in 2004, saying he had been placed on their watch list after falling victim to identity theft. At the time, the department said there was no way for his name to be removed.
Although Labbé wrote letters to the U.S. department, his efforts were in vain, prompting him to legally change his name.
“So now, my official name is François Mario Labbé,” he said.
“Then you have to change everything: driver’s license, social insurance, medicare, credit card — everything.”
Although it’s not a big change from Mario Labbé, he said it’s been enough to foil the U.S. customs computers.
