I had intended my debut post for this blog to be about the “Birther” movement. The term collectively refers to individuals sincerely concerned President Obama is actually named Barry Soetoro and is a citizen of Indonesia. After reading the website of their de facto leader Orly Taitz, a dentist with a correspondence school law degree, I figured I could let the issue go. Why? Because Orly Taitz is utterly insane, or at least profoundly confused. (And she likes to refer to herself as Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq., which we all know is a complete breach of Postian etiquette.)
Checking in on her blog now and again is enthralling. Her posts parallel the structure of Gogol’s Diary of a Madman, a novella in which the protagonist’s entries start out reasonable, but end proclaiming him the King of Spain. Today has yielded the best post yet:
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.
Be still my beating heart! It always goes aflutter at the mention of posse comitatus. I encourage you all to familiarize yourself with the movement, if only for a lark. Should you desire to read a site devoted to bursting the Birthers’ stealth dirigible bubble, the best can be found here.
