Jerome Corsi and the Worldnutdaily are taking birtherism to a new level, not only arguing that Obama wasn’t born in the United States (or falsely claiming that he gave up his citizenship when he lived in Indonesia for a few years as a child, another version of this idiocy), but that Barack Obama Sr. isn’t even his real father. And who is his real father? A communist!
“The film provides the first cohesive understanding of Obama’s deep-rooted life journey in socialism, from his childhood to his presidency,” Gilbert told WND.
Gilbert rejects the official story that the Kenyan-born Barack Obama was the president’s father.
Instead, he argues, Frank Marshall Davis, the radical poet and journalist who was a card-carrying member of the Communist Party USA, was the real, biological and ideological father of Barack Obama.
“I decided to investigate Frank Marshall Davis. His close physical resemblance to Obama was shocking, while Obama little resembled the Kenyan Obama,” Gilbert said. “How could this be?”
Yes, how could this be? Everyone must look exactly like their father! God said so! Jesus, these people are nuts. Stark raving nuts.
