Dr. Orly Taitz, the key leader of the right-wing Birther movement, is way, way, way out there. But sadly, she's not so far out to dissuade at least four Missouri State Representatives -- and maybe more -- from actively supporting her crazy crusade.
Believe it or not, Missouri has more elected representatives participating in Taitz's lawsuit against Barack Obama than any state but Tennessee. Reps. Tim Jones, Cynthia Davis and Casey Guernsey are all listed as plaintiffs in a letter from Taitz demanding "immediate investigation and prosecution of Mr. Obama on charges of suspected fraud, perjury, forgery, identity theft and social security fraud." And to round out the bunch, Rep. Mike McGhee is reportedly scheduled to attend Taitz's upcoming St. Louis event.
Shouldn't Jones, Davis, Guernsey and any other State Representatives who actively participate in this lunacy with be held accountable their stand? How many other crazy Taitz theories are they willing to support?
Consider just some of the claims on Taitz's official website:
Obama is "a radical communist, radical Muslim, raised in a mob."
From a June 6 post by Taitz:
Obama is talking about liberties and freedoms, but in his core he is a radical communist, radical Muslim, raised in a mob influenced environment of Chicago dirty politics. This man is completely destroying the economy of this country and the constitutional freedoms of this country and he has never proven any legitimacy for the position he holds.
So here is your choice. You can continue kissing Obama’s boots until you will be thrown under the buss or until some fuses and hoses will be disconnected in your car, if god forbid you speak up, or you can join me and fight for true transparency in government, you can fight to take the country back, to have true balanced trade and bring all the manufacturing back to this country, so we can finally get out of this economic slump and see our people going back to work, producing and proudly supporting their families.
"We Need Citizen’s militia to Make sure citizens are not rounded into FEMA Civilian Labor Camps."
From an April 28 post:
We need each and every citizen enrolled in legal citizen’s militia and oath keepers movement to protect all of us from the Brown Shirts and from the oppressive and corrupt establishment of the Foreign National, Citizen of Indonesia Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama and his American SS sidekicks Napolitano and Pelosi. If they use the swine flu or any other excuse to infringe on civil liberties and constitutional rights of American citizens and try to use American or UN or any other troops on American soil in violation of Posse Comitatus, we will be able to rely on the citizens militia and the state governments and State National Guards to protect the lives and property of the American citizens and secede, if needed.
America is "a Nazi police state." On May 28, Taitz posted a WorldNetDaily article about the tea party protests, and made up her own title, "Congratulations, we are in a nazi (sic) police state."
Obama is running a "criminal enterprise." On May 29, Taitz posted an article referring to "Supreme Leader Obama" and gave the article its own title, "Obama is expending (sic) his criminal Enterprise"
This week, Taitz floated the idea of a "Million Rifled Men March."
From a June 17 post:
We need to sign people up for 4th of July parties under headings “Obama=Liar in Chief” “Foreign National Obama=Not Legitimate for U.S. Presidency”. We need to organize people to come to DC for September 12-13 Million Men March (some suggested Million Rifled Men March).
Sen. Arlen Specter is an "embarrassment" to "the Jewish people around the World."
From an April 28 post:
Arlen Specter is an embarrassment. He is an embarrassment to the conservative movement and to the Jewish people around the World. He embarrassed himself and his own conservative record. He embarrassed his state and his party. At a time when Obama is handing to Hamas 900 million dollars, which will most certainly go to build more Kassam rockets and attack the state of Israel, he (and everybody else who is Jewish and collaborating with Obama), has betrayed his faith, has embarassed Jewish people around the world and particularly Jewish people in the state of Israel.
May his name go down in history as a turncoat, may Arlen Specter be known as a Benedict Arnold of the second American Revolution.
This is ugly, hateful, outrageous stuff. How much of it do Jones, Davis, Guernsey and McGhee support?
