WND's Joseph Farah: Marco Rubio Is Not A Natural Born Citizen, And Is Ineligible for the Vice Presidency

Ah, birtherism.

I knew you'd be back.

This isn't really new, but Farah spreading the word, threatening a 10% defection in the conservative vote if Rubio is VP.

Conservative Joseph Farah on Tuesday evening predicted that “10 percent of the Republican vote” would fail to get behind Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) as the hypothetical vice presidential nominee because they will believe the circumstances of his birth make him ineligible.

...

Rubio’s parents became naturalized citizens in 1975, but were permanent legal residents of the United States when Rubio was born, according to Rubio’s office. Rubio’s official biography has already been scrutinized, due to questions over the date his parents arrived in the United States as Cuban exiles.

...

“You want to open that can of worms again?” Farah warned.

Yes I do.

Conspiracy theories never die; they just continuously mutate. Memes are like living creatures, always mutating and adapting to new conditions.

They're a bit like viruses. Or pestilences.

We still have multiple iterations of the Freemason Dollar Symbolism conspiracy theories running around, various JFK (and RFK! And MLK Jr.!) whitewash-the-assassination theories, moon landing conspiracy theories, USS Liberty conspiracy theories (prominently pushed by Truthers and Ron Paul supporters, and, by the way, those groups strongly overlapped), etc., etc., etc.

Who killed JFK? Well, the Cuban government, the anti-Cuban government agitators, the CIA, the Mob (specifically I think the Trafficant crime family in New Orleans, but memory is fuzzy), the military-industrial complex pushing for war in Vietnam, the KGB (Oswald did attempt to defect to Russia!), the White Russian community, rich rightwing extremists in Texas, and LBJ.

The better question is really who didn't kill Kennedy. Shorter list. As the Devil says in the Stones song, "After all, it was you and me." Well I know I didn't do it, but you, I'm not certain about.

RFK has his own conspiracy theory even though his assassin was caught on camera and immediately tackled by Rosie Greer (memory is fuzzy-- right?).

And you can't have a rational discussion about a conspiracy theory, because its proponents are so emotionally invested in it, and if you call the theories crazy and irrational, well, you're calling them crazy and irrational.

And they really just don't see why the rules of rationality forbid them from linking whatever two dots they like and assuming a grand central plot behind them, without any evidence. They consider that rule "arbitrary" and imposed by dolts who have Bought Into the Official Story.

And so it will be until the end of days.


Thanks to R.
