Obama’s “Real” Father and Lazy Thinking

16 May

Real Father

Conspiracy Theories in America

This supercut comes from “Dreams from My Real Father” a movie being pushed that purports to tell the “real” story of Barack Obama and his background. It’s easy to point out the extreme stretches of logic it would take to believe that Obama’s real father is Frank Marshall whose parentage was covered up by his grandfather who was secretly in the CIA. Why his CIA pops could cover up his birth but not prevent his daughter from having a child with a communist is an obvious question but I digress. We could spend all day debunking the “logic” on display here. What people tend to have a tougher time with is seeing through similar jumps in logic about conspiracy theories that are beneficial to their worldview. The odds that there are secret meetings by the world’s most powerful people collude to keep everyone else down are similar to the odds that there are secret meetings between black and Jewish people to overthrow white people. Conspiracy theories provide an easy out for the question of why things are the way they are. Acting as a deus ex machina for the thousands of little decisions and interactions that seemingly govern our world.

    Took me a bit to figure out the reason for the color.

    Bottom LIne: u-bam-a has something to hide. If not, he would give authorization to any and everybody to get a certified copy of his birth certificate.

    Question: Why is no one pursuing this with full force? File law suits demanding that he either show it or resign? Assert that u-bam-a is violating the constitution?

    Get on it you fools.
