If the hate and venom coming from the "Birthers" wasn't so crazy and insane, I would have to laugh at their stupidity. However, their statements show just how dangerous they are. At the "Birther's" site (http://www.birthers.org//) they state that Obama is the "domestic enemy to the Constitutional Republic of the United States of America!"
I am not positive what the "Constitutional Republic of the United States of America" is, but I would bet most Birthers don't understand the differences between a "democracy" and a "republic". It seems that Birthers are happy to ignore facts and certified statements (see factcheck.org) and instead believe in falsehoods and propaganda.
CNN and Anderson Cooper did a great show on this issue tonight (http://ac360.blogs.cnn.com/2010/04/21/birthers-vs-pres-obama-join-the-live-chat/). It is shocking how so many people are willing to believe that some massive conspiracy exists (starting 47 years ago?) to have a foreign-born black man elected President. If the President wasn't black would we be having these discussions? As Anderson pointed out, did anyone ask where Presidents Bush and Clinton were born?
Fearmongering must stop!! Overt racism must stop.
Right-wing zealots love to quote Jefferson - "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants". They hardly seem patriotic and in fact, they seem to be the tyrants.
