Conspiracy theorist Glenn Beck recently had this to say about “birthers,” those other conspiracy theorists who question the validity (or existence) of President Obama’s birth certificate:

BECK: Today there is a concerted effort on all radio stations to get Birthers on the air. I have to tell you, are you working for the Barack Obama administration? I mean, that’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. [...]

BECK:If I were Barack Obama, I would say, no, now, wait a minute; why do that when these people are so discrediting themselves because if I can get them to discredit themselves…

WorldNetDaily, which is a source frequently used by Fox News, didn’t appear to appreciate Beck’s statements, relating Beck to “Obama’s apologists.”

The ongoing dialogue then spun off into ridicule as Beck caricatured those who question the sitting president’s eligibility with straw-man arguments reminiscent of jibes made by Obama’s apologists in other news outlets. [...]

“Birthers,” however, reflect a far greater diversity of opinion than is assumed by Beck’s characterization. … While other top radio hosts, including Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, Mark Levin and Lou Dobbs, have all said unequivocally and publicly that the Obama eligibility issue is legitimate and worthy, a few – including Beck and fellow Fox TV host Bill O’Reilly – have taken the position that the issue is, in O’Reilly’s words, “bogus.” Both Beck and O’Reilly cite the contemporaneous appearance of birth announcements in two Honolulu newspapers as prima facie evidence Obama was born in Hawaii and “birthers” are conspiracy nuts.

  1. Open letter to Glenn Beck

    There is no way to communicate directly with Glenn Beck, so I am posting my open letter to Beck all over the Net to communicate with him indirectly.
    We should all take advantage of Beck’s latest rants about Obama’s newspapers birth announcement to keep this Obama eligibility issue alive and well.

    Mr. Beck,

    On 1/27/2010 you ranted again that it is ridiculous for people to not take the Honolulu newspapers’ Obama birth announcements as proof of his eligibility to be president of US. Do you know how stupid and ridiculous your rants are?
    1.Contrary to what you claimed, they didn’t ‘plant’ the birth announcements because they knew Obama would be president! They applied for a ‘Certification of Live Birth’ (which triggered the birth announcements in the local newspapers) to ensure Obama enjoys the benefits of being a US citizen.
    2.To ensure that Obama can be the US president, they would have to name a US citizen father in the official long-form birth certificate from Hawaii. Since Obama has openly declared that Obama Sr., a non-US citizen, was his father, he is not at liberty to release his long-form birth certificate from Hawaii (if he really has one) – if Obama Sr. was named his father, Obama Jr. is NOT eligible to be US presdent; if some one else was named his father, he has committed perjury, even if the father was a US citizen! This is probably the reason he spends over a million to hire attorneys to seal his birth and other records.
    3.All job applicants must submit genuine hard copy birth certificate to prove citizenship. NO employer will accept a newspapers birth annoucement or a digital image of a document that is routinely issued to people born anywhere in the world. Yet Obama’s sole proofs are these 2 ridiculous so-called documents! You and his blind supporters accept these ‘doc’ as proof he is a natural born citizen eligible to be the US president! You completely ignore the fact that he spends over a million to seal all documents and records! Who are the ridiculous people here?

    We take your advice and ask questions with BOLDNESS. You ridicule us for doing so!

    You are obviously more intelligent than what your rants have manifested. What are the real reasons for your recent stupid and ridiculous rants?
    Don’t you say what you mean and mean what you say?

    Xxxxxxxxxxx
