How stupid are they? Oh... My... God! - Birthers Tout Badly Faked Vid As "Proof" Obama Was Born In Kenya

Everything Possible Happens brings you a complete and thorough debunking of the latest insane stupid assholery to crawl out of the fetid swamps of Lower Wingnuttia...

Not content with the insane babbling boobery of Orly Taitz and Donald Dumbshit, the birthers are back, and this time they have PROOF! PROOF, I tell you, PROOF! And the PROOF has already gone VIRAL throughout Lower Wingnuttia! It's out there, man, it's out there!

And what might this, er, "proof" be, a not crazy, not stupid, not wingnut racist fundie moran birther boob might ask?

Vice, a stinking cesspool of a vulgarian loonytoonian website and magazine that I refuse to link to, has posted PROOF, PROOF, I tell you, that Obama was actually born in KENYA and they have the VIDEO to prove it!

Without further ado, here's the hilariously badly faked video...

Did we say debunking? When huge, steaming piles of Teh Stupid come this fast and furious, it's hard to know where to start. For example...

*The video is supposedly a "VHS transfer of a Super-8 home movie filmed by Barack Sr." In fact, there was no Super-8 in 1961, when Obama was born. Kodak didn't release the Super-8 format until 1965.

*The Kenyan flag, Bendera ya Kenya, conveniently placed on the bedboard next to the medical chart, wasn't adopted until December of 1963.

*The woman in the video is obviously NOT the woman in the picture attached conveniently to the chart.

*The picture attached to the chart for no reason whatsoever is actually Ann Dunham's yearbook photo. Why would they attach a picture at all? They wouldn't, but if they did, why wouldn't they use a RECENT picture? What, no passport photo? Are we to believe Ann traveled the world with her yearbook in her purse just in case?

Ann Dunham's High School Graduation Picture
*The 6 inch long umbilical cord in the vid falls off on its own. Real umbilical cords are about 2 feet long and must be clamped, then cut.

*The child in the video is obviously not a newborn, unless it's a 25 pound alert newborn holding up its own head with eyes wide open.

*All newborns are covered in a white, milky substance called vermix, which protects the infant from amniotic fluid. Vermix clings especially in the area around the eyes and folds in the skin. There is no vermix on this "newborn."

*Whoever made this video has obviously not seen a live birth. Something important is missing entirely. Can you say "placenta"? You can say it, but you can't find one in the vid. In fact, the "newborn" comes out amazing clean with no sign of blood, amniotic fluid, vermix or fluids of any kind.

*Momma pops out this humongous, gargantuan, world's largest newborn ever easier than a baseball player spits out a pumpkin seed, and all in just a few effortless seconds. Not.

*And finally, my personal favorite, zoom in on the calendar conveniently placed next to the flag and the pic and you find that EVERY day in August of 1961 is shown as the 4th. Apparently the producers were too bleeping stupid to bother looking up the actual days as the fell in August of 1961, including FRIDAY, August 4th, Obama's birthday.

The lesson here is a familiar one; Never underestimate the stupidity of GOP racist wingnut birther imbeciles.


  1. I disagree on one, that every date on the calendar is the 4th. I believe this is just an artifact of zooming in beyond the actual resolution of the image, and the software interpolating smudge to look like triangles. At other resolutions it doesn't look this way.

    More revealing is that the flower image on the calendar was done by photographic artist Steven N. Meyers in 2005. It's on a published 2013 calendar.

  2. I would add that I have yet to find a single birther who believes this video is authentic. Perhaps you know of some, but I haven't been able to find such.

  3. Even most wingnuts don't buy into this bad fake. Some, OTOH... For example, from the comments on Batshit Beck's crapfest site:

    “This Is the Alleged ‘Obama Kenyan Birth Video’ That’s Making the Rounds on the Internet…
    US — “The ball is in your court, now, Mr. President. We have the proof; what do you have?” ”

    WRONG!! The EVIDENCE has been staring America in the face FOR THE LAST 4 YEARS. CONGRESS has done NOTHING!! Washington DC stinks of TREASON.
    “When the fish stinks, it stinks from the head down.”

    Barack Hussein Obama’s (AKA Barry Obama, AKA Barry Soetoro) Kenya BIRTH CERTIFICATE:

    “AP declares Obama Kenyan-Born (And 2008 AP Story Repeats the Claim)”
    “What most people know is that the Associated Press (AP) is one of the largest, internationally recognized, syndicated news services. … in a syndicated report, published Sunday, June 27, 2004, by the Kenyan Standard Times, … ‘Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama, appeared set to take over the Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club allegations.’”

    “This report explains the context of the oft cited debate, between Obama and Keyes in the following Fall, in which Keyes faulted Obama for not being a “natural born citizen”, and in which Obama, by his quick retort, “So what? I am running for Illinois Senator, not the presidency”, self-admitted that he was not eligible for the office.”

    ...and lest you think that's an isolated example of Teh Stupid, there's more. A lot more:

    Babies born to diabetic mothers are very large and can be 13 pounds. If the lady was not a diabetic, she could still be a gestational diabetic. The diabetes would be due to the pregnancy.

    ...and a depressingly long list of many more examples of Teh Stupid and the power of denial.

      The names and signatures of the attending physician and that of the chief of obstetrics at Coast Province Hospital are on the Kenyan birth certificate. The physician shown in the video could be identified by his appearance.

      Yeah , seems legit. Whatever.

      Who knows….all I know for sure Obama is not a American citizen, period.

      Whether true or not this is no time for stuff like this that will only confuse the more important stories, like Benghazi. That story is of the most importance and is critical to exposing the administration for the crimes it has committed against the country.

      Doesn’t mattter if it is real or not. Let Obamanation prove it is not real!

      I put the picture of the baby in print shop pro and it appears to have blood on the neck and the lady on the right shoulder of her gown. It could all be a ruse, but if the picture is taken close enough the baby would appear bigger. I do not know much about black babies and if it is normal for them to be born looking older than they are. It could be the distance that the baby is so close to the camera.

      Actually the Mau Mau Flag flew over parts of Kenya from the early 1950's and its popularity had spread all throughout the country by the late 1950's. The Mau Mauflag was acknowledged as the official flag of Kenya in 1963. To say the modern day Kenyan flag didnt exist in vast quantities throughout the country in 1961 is dishonesty. Kenya had a 10+ year civil war gaining thier independance from the British. To lead people to believe the British just said hey we changed our minds, you can have your country back one day is completely untrue!

      I guess I don’t know much about what Obama’s mother looks like. I think I have seen one very old photo of her. I have seen one distant old photo of his father. So how can anyone be sure who these people are? Does this woman look like his mother? Is that his father? Who knows for sure? We know Obama is a liar. We all know that. The fact is unless we get back our media outlets the deception and destruction that this president is pouring out on this country will continue even if he is voted out of office.
