The S_Trump_et Whores On

We mean, of course, The Donald. Or should that read "whoreson"?

Today, our President, Barack Hussein Obama, released the long form of his birth certificate.

Ordinarily,this form is not available for viewing except to those having a personal interest in it — which is to say, the person whose birth it records or other immediate family members. Hawai'i's privacy laws also do not permit the State to release the original copy to anyone. The President requested a waiver of such laws in order to release this piece of paper.

No other President — nor even any nominee for the office — has ever been required to prove their citizenship. So let's be perfectly straightforward and clear about this whole brouhaha. Had President Obama been white, the question would never even have arisen. On what grounds do I assert this? These:

  • John McCain was never asked to produce his documents, despite the fact that he was NOT born in the US;

  • Birfers are trying to change state and Federal laws — and possibly even the Constitution — to take away the right to citizenship jus soli, i.e., by virtue of having been born on US soil. They are also trying to alter the right to citizenship jus sanguinis, i.e., by right of blood. Currently, the Constitution recognizes both conditions as conferring citizenship. "Birther bills" on the State level actually require potential nominees to have *both* parents born on US soil. The fact that this would exclude Mitt Romney (whose father was born in Mexico) and Donald Trump (whose mother was born in Scotland) hasn't yet penetrated their crania, I suppose.

  • These are the same people who, when Arnold Schwartzenegger the foreign-born brainless Austrian bodybuilder was making his stab at power, were willing to amend the Constitution to allow him to run for President. Yet they're not willing to accept the mixed-race child of a white American mother as a "real American" without making him leap through hoops despite what their OWN FUCKING LAWS SAY.

I'm furious and disgusted with the media's complicity in all this. With their endless bullshit, their boob job coverage, their fertility stories, their Royal wedding coverage, their bullshit about the teabaggers who can barely get 300 people to show up for most events, their refusal to cover the 100,000 who marched in Wisconsin. I'm sick of it. So I found this video on Crooks&Liars, which I cannot recommend highly enough. Please to watch. And then please spread the word. Because he's absolutely correct, every word of it.

Contact NBC and let them know what you think. They really need to hear from people.

Excellent, excellent video and so well said. I am heart broken over this too. For anyone who doesn't know me, I am white, a cracker, and I am sickened by the racism President Obama has had to endure. It IS a violation of President Obama's civil rights. If you haven't figured it out by now, I hate these racist pigs with the purest hatred. They are not Americans. They don't even know what it is supposed to mean to be American. They are Nazi fascist racist pigs and that includes that despicable racist freak Donald Trump. Is Trump doing this to bring attention to himself? No doubt, and I would like to give him attention with my clenched fist and repeatedly beat th fucking crap out of him. And then kick his sorry fucking ass the hell off this planet. Send him to wherever it is the lizard people live. I hate his fucking guts!!! And as a white person, I am ashamed of the white racist pigs out there and wish I could express my apologies to all the people of color who have ever had to suffer at the hands of these fucking bastards. I hate them!

Right on.

It's so nice to see you back in action again, TPC! I keep you in my Google Reader just for days like this.

I just hope that Obama's release will expose the racism of the birthers for what it is.

But I also want to know how I can block all of these hideous fucking ads for Trump, which are even showing up on Alternet. The guy is so awash in money and cupidity that he thinks he can get *my* vote? I would like to apply a depilator to that man's head.
