The Cost of Stupidity is also Eternal Vigilence. (Hiatus squared = new post)

May 11, 2007

The following is the text of an email received today by a sister of mine who shall remain nameless.  Since she refuses to hand over the email addresses of the good  people who are forwarding this crap (Duck could have much fun with these people if allowed) I feel compelled to post the text here.

Oh, and if you’ve received this email before, and you read it, and the implied racism, religious intolerance, and general paranoia contained herein pushed some tingly buttons in the old fish-brain, and you think Barak Obama is a radical fundamentalist Muslim puppet…then please, by all means, before you cast another vote in any election, do one of two things:

1) Educate yourself, or

2) Drown yourself. Really.  I’m not kidding.  Is that too harsh?  Perhaps I should reconsider that statement?  <pause>  Nope.  Just drown yourself.  Do the free world a favor.

So, without further ado:

 Who is Barack Obama?

Probable U. S. presidential candidate, Barack Hussein Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., a black Muslim from Nyangoma-Kogel, Kenya and Ann Dunham, a white atheist from Wichita,Kansas.   Obama’s parents met at the University of Hawaii.

When Obama was two years old, his parents divorced. His father Returned to Kenya.   His mother then married Lolo Soetoro, a radical Muslim From Indonesia.   When Obama was 6 years old, the family relocated to
Indonesia.  Obama attended a Muslim school in Jakarta.   He also spent two years in a Catholic school.   Obama takes great care to conceal the fact that he is a Muslim.

He Is quick to point out that, “He was once a Muslim, but that he also attended Catholic school.”

Obama’s political handlers are attempting to make it appear that Obama’s introduction to Islam came via his father, and that this influence was temporary at best.

In reality, the senior Obama returned to Kenya Soon after the divorce, and never again had any direct influence over His son’s education.

Lolo Soetoro, the second husband of Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, introduced his stepson to Islam.

Obama was enrolled in a Wahabi school in Jakarta. Wahabism is the radical teaching that is followed by the Muslim terrorists who are now waging Jihad against the western world.

Since it is politically expedient to be a Christian when seeking Major public office in the United States, Barack Hussein Obama has joined the United Church of Christ in an attempt to downplay his Muslim background.

Let us all remain alert concerning Obama’s expected presidential candidacy.

Please forward to everyone you know.  The Muslims have said they plan on destroying the US from the inside out, what better way to start than at the highest level.


  1. What a nice present to check your blog today and find an “un-hiatus.”

    People, don’t jump off the bridge yet. Let’s explore option #1 (educate yourself). Check out this link to snopes.com (my favorite website):

  2. You could take that last paragraph and substitute “communist” for “muslim” and you’d have the same mindless crap that has plagued the gullible masses in this country since Korea.

    I am glad, however, that I don’t have to drown myself. Oh, sweet reprieve.

  3. As Sissy says, please feel free to explore option #1. But if education isn’t your bag, then I maintain that drowning yourself is a viable alternative.

    Or just don’t vote.

  4. Oh, surely this was a cruel joke. Are you saying, in all seriously, Duck, that this email may still be circulating? Say it ain’t so…

  5. Oh-my-freaking-god.

    So THAT’s what’s wrong with this country. Well! Good to have that cleared up.

    Duck, you need to get those people’s e-mail addresses. Or, if anyone ever forwards such mindless shit my way, I’ll be sure to turn ’em over to you. I think they have to be fair game, after all that.

  6. Come on, Duck. There’s nothing that helps people make a better decision than fear and paranoia. With a good healthy dose of out-and-out ignorance and fact-fudging.

    I bet the people who started this are also tracking it and will give us $50 from Microsoft if we send it on.

  7. I’d just like to say that I am very pleased and just a wee bit surprised to hear all this flaming liberal outrage fly from the fingers of my southern cohorts (and here I thought I ought not hang my hammer and sickle at Ann St).

    (That’s a joke–I’m a far cry from a pinko these days despite living in Spain)
