Joel Gilbert is the right wing propagandist who made the documentary Dreams From My Real Father, which claims that Obama’s real father was communist Frank Marshall Davis. So he’s no stranger to bizarre conspiracy theories. And he says Obama used NSA data to steal the 2012 election:
Gilbert: Obama could have used the NSA. Don’t forget, there was that incredible database that the Obama campaign used that had all these details on everybody, and they were able to have this amazing, I don’t think they Googled everybody in the country to create a database. I have to assume that the Obama campaign used the NSA data to categorize and reach out to a large group of potential voters.
Gilbert: A lot of it has to do with voter fraud, it has to do with manipulating the system. They were very confident that they would win this last election.
Boyles: Did Barack Obama vote or not vote? I’ve read different theories that he didn’t vote.
Gilbert: Well, exactly. For the first time ever… Usually you see a candidate, the president of the United States, you see him voting on Election Day. First time ever, and this revealed their game plan, Michelle voted two months an advance on the absentee ballot, and this was their game, Obama voted a week in advance on the early voting.
Boyles: Yes, because usually when I was a kid, you saw Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhower, you saw Jack Kennedy in Hyannis…Gilbert: Well, absolutely, you saw Bush, Clinton. Going to vote is part of the ritual. This was their game plan, was to stack the election through absentee and early voting. So, Michelle said, ‘I’m too busy, I’m a single mother, so I voted early.’ In reality, this was a signal to their followers, for everybody to get an absentee ballot. And I think a large percentage of those on absentee voted again on Election Day.
Boyles: You do?
Gilbert: Absolutely. So in reality, about 25 percent of the electorate voted prior to Election Day. Romney actually won the election on Election Day. But because they had stacked the vote through absentee ballots, through dead people, homeless, disabled people, people voting two, three times, I believe that’s how they knew they would win the election, along with the fact that they knew they had suppressed the organizing of the conservatives through the IRS.
He has no evidence for any of this, of course, but in wingnut circles that’s actually considered a positive thing. Baseless speculation is so much better to them.
