Did Hillary Clinton Start The Birther Movement?
Back in 2011 in an interview, Trump questioned President Obama's place of birth and citizenship. No one had ever seen his birth certificate and his whereabouts at birth were not documented. To be fair, no other president was pressured to produce their birth certificate. Trump was subsequently labeled a bigot and a racist for his request of proof of birth place. When Ted Cruz's citizenship was questioned, however, the media said nothing.
Team Clinton has blamed Trump for creating the birther movement in recent rallies. Her problem is the fact that the birther rumors were running rampant in 2007 and 2008. At that time, Hillary Clinton Started the birther movement. Politico and The Guardian have recently traced the birther movement to the 2008 Clinton presidential campaign. Hillary's chief strategist, Mark Penn, wrote an astonishing memo as to how they should focus on Obama's “lack of roots” to win the election. They also questioned his Christianity.
Penn wrote, “His roots to basic American values and culture are at best limited. I cannot imagine America electing a president during a time of war who is not at his center fundamentally American in his thinking and his values.”
He went on to tell Clinton to mention she was 'born in the middle of America' in every speech, which subliminally meant that her opponent is not American. The key here was to never say it, but feed the fire in other ways. Her campaign also took on the theme of 'American' and slipped it into her speeches at every opportunity.
Obama Blamed Hillary For Birther Movement In 2008
Soon thereafter, the birther believers began to pound the internet and state that President Obama was born in Kenya. That, immediately after his birth his mother brought him to Hawaii. Clinton supporters also spread this wild rumor on the web. It got downright filthy and the Clinton team was basking in the glory. They never uttered a word of this and they did not denounce it.
On their way to a debate in Iowa, Clinton and Obama crossed paths at the airport tarmac. Obama's former aide witnessed the rendezvous and below is what she said about it.
“Obama very respectfully told her the apology was kind, but largely meaningless, given the emails it was rumored her camp had been sending out labeling him as a Muslim. Before he could finish his sentence, she exploded on Obama. In a matter of seconds, she went from composed to furious. It had not been Obama’s intention to upset her, but he wasn’t going to play the fool either.”
Clinton's Machiavellian Scheme
A Clinton campaign worker, Judy Rose, emailed another staffer asking if Obama was surreptitiously a Muslim and if he is attempting to destroy the country from within. She wasn't fired immediately, she was cut loose when the media got a hold of the scandal. One month later, a photo of Obama wearing a headdress and a Muslim robe was released to the internet. Obama accused the Clinton team for the release.
Hillary's campaign manager, David Plouffe, said that this was “the most shameful, offensive fear-mongering we’ve seen from either party in this election”.
President Obama had to spend time on the fact that he is a Christian and not a Muslim for the rest of his campaign. Obama blamed Hillary's staff and supporters for the internet smears, yet today he blames Trump for the birther movement. To this day, Obama has never produced an authentic birth certificate. Folks have seen a notification of birth in a Hawaiian newspaper's archived and that quelled the controversy.
If it wasn't for double standards, this Democrat duo of Obama and Clinton would have no standards at all.
