U.S. District Judge R. Barclay Surrick on Friday night rejected the suit by attorney Philip J. Berg, who alleged that Obama was not a U.S. citizen and therefore ineligible for the presidency.
This was one of the many conspiracy theories that have been circulating about Barack Obama. Thankfully the judge had the reason to see that this claim was nothing more than complete horseshit.
Berg claimed that Obama is either a citizen of his father's native Kenya or became a citizen of Indonesia after he moved there as a boy.
Obviously this had as much backing as the BS claims that Obama is a Muslim and the only dark and seedy lies that the Right Wing have been spreading.
With regards to the Muslim rumor, and Colin Powell said it well, so what if he was a Muslim? What would that matter? How would it be any different than him being a Jew, a Buddhist, etc. The vicious lies that Obama is a Muslim amount nothing more to racism. It is fear-mongering on part of the Right Wing. Since the Far Right's agenda has little to no appeal to Americans now, they have to resort to more lies and deciet than usual to scare Americans.
The Right Wing thinks you're dumb.
Don't let them fool you.
That's How I See It.
