After having the severe misfortune of being exposed to the bottom-of-the-barrel ideology expressed by a North Carolina Congressional candidate named Dr. John Whitley–while he was on CNN spewing his venomous muck to Anderson Cooper about President Obama’s supposedly questionable place of origin–it only goes to reinforce the shattered and mangled reality of the superlative racism that still reigns supreme within the hollow vacuums that now pose as minds throughout the conservative/Republican corridors of old, middle-of-the-road, traditional, White-male gobbledygook.
But first, just in case there are those who might have missed the interview, allow me to give you the highlights. To put it plainly, to say that Anderson Cooper took Dr. Whitley to school on the facts bus would be putting it lightly, but that’s exactly what happened. Shrewd Cooper picked apart Dr. Whitley’s brittle claims of birth certificate tampering with common sense, fairness and a hearty respect for the qualified personnel who did their job to properly examine and confidently put forth the conclusion that most of the sane world now knows to be true, which is the fact that the birth certificate for Barack Hussein Obama is as valid as any other document from the state of Hawaii or any of the other 49 states or any of the other 43 previous presidents! Eventually, the bigots/Birthers are going to have to get over it.
And Cooper was right to question the merits of such a bizarre, goose chase, when the evidence and the facts just don’t seem to be able to measure up to being the evidence or the facts—depending overwhelming on who it is applied to. For a party that spends all of its time clamoring for state’s rights and crowing so loudly about how only they have the confidence needed to restore, uphold and streamline the 10th Amendment, it seems very peculiar that on this particular case so many of these state’s rights cheerleaders are still having such a difficult time trusting the state of Hawaii to do its job and accepting the results produced from it.
If I didn’t know any better, I’d say that it almost sounds like the Birthers are advocating for big government to get involved to straighten out Obama’s birth certificate situation, because they obviously don’t trust the state of Hawaii any further than the sound of the word aloha can carry.
And as silly as it may seem, all Dr. Whitley really had to go on was the pitiful admission that a large amount of his suspicion of the president’s birth certificate was based on two things—how it looked compared to his friend’s birth certificate, who is also allegedly from Hawaii and the odd feeling of the birth certificate paper and the official, birth certificate seal that was noticed by him as he ran his fingers across it.
And as Whitley was forced to admit to Cooper, he is a doctor, not a birth certificate specialist or a birth certificate seal specialist, which means that he probably knows about as much about the legitimacy of a birth certificate as I know about harnessing the power of nuclear fusion from the sun while blindfolded.
Birthers are like bigots, and bigots are like Birthers! There is just no other way of explaining it. Maybe the next time I’m in North Carolina, I’ll stop by the Jim Crow, country club and ask for a copy of Dr. Whitley’s birth certificate, so I can run my fingers across it to see if it will give me a Ku Klux Klan, paper cut. If it does, by George it’s a fake!
Wasn’t this Birther crap supposed to be over with by now? Apparently the stench of bigotry just refuses to let it die. Maybe racism is the ultimate vampire, and not even silver, fact bullets can kill it, but there is one thing that can, and it’s called a vote—more people should try it sometimes.
So to all of the finger pointers, many of them on the progressive left, who have been so quick to pour gasoline on what they perceive to be the ‘Democrat’s plantation’ for brainwashed Blacks, just stick around past November and a good, old boy like Dr. Whitley will show you what a plantation really looks like. They’ll probably try to repeal Obamacare, ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’ Planned Parenthood and they might even try to repeal you—depending on which side of the paper bag your complexion resides on! So, you might want to find your birth certificate, update your zip code and have your citizenship papers handy.
