Craziest Smear Ever: Obama Worships His Monkey God Keychain
Stay up to date with the latest headlines via email.
So weâ€™ve all heard the rumors: Obama is a Muslim. Obama isnâ€™t American. Obama hearts terrorists (and gives terrorist fist-jabs). Obama is too black. Obama is not black enough. Obama is a thug. Michelle Obama is Barack Obamaâ€™s baby-mama. Obama wants to give up all of our rights to the Muslims, and probably the French, too. Obama is every right-wing scare tactic ever:
â€œI think Obama would be a disaster, and thereâ€™s a lot of reasons,â€ said Pollard, explaining the rumors he had heard about the candidate from friends he goes camping with. â€œI understand heâ€™s from Africa, and that the first thing heâ€™s going to do if he gets into office is bring his family over here, illegally. Heâ€™s got that racist [pastor] who practically raised him, and then thereâ€™s the Muslim thing. Heâ€™s just not presidential material, if you ask me.â€
Yes, for those of you foolish enough to click over, that headline does in fact read, â€œ Is Obama devotee of monkey-god idol?â€
And I know itâ€™s on WorldNet Daily, which is where the most paranoid and hateful wingers tend to congregate. itâ€™s the same site that sells a â€œDarwin led to Hitlerâ€ video â€” in other words, not exactly the most reliable source of news and information.
But itâ€™s nonetheless a widely-read site, and their take on the story isnâ€™t unusual (just check The Google to see what the other right-wing sites are reporting).
