Here’s a video that advances a conspiracy theory about President Obama’s “real” name and possible link to a Muslim cult. The video offers allegations and inferences that are fascinating, intriguing, unsettling–and possibly based only on coincidence (albeit very strange coincidence). This is the sort of story you’d expect to see featured in one of tabloids we see in the grocery store check-out lanes.
Responsible journalists shouldn’t write or publish stories like this one. But they do.
Why? Because President Obama has not yet provided evidence of his birth and early years. If Obama provided such evidence, “conspiracy theories” of the sort seen in this video would disappear.
Show us a birth certificate, Barry, that isn’t forged and we’ll believe you and all of these conspiracy theories will disappear. But until you produce a real birth certificate, the conspiracy theories will proliferate.
Point? The reason for conspiracy theories about President Obama’s birth is because Obama won’t tell us the truth. Thus, Obama, himself, is not the victim of conspiracy theories about his birth–he is the cause.
