Dianna Cotter, aka Freeper Danae, recently took the Birther Complaint to Russia. Along the way, she got mentioned on The Drudge Report, which is usually a good thing. However, the jury is still out on whether whining to the Ruskies is one of those things which simply isn’t done. See Hanoi Jane. First, here is a link to the story:
Here are some excerpts:
A singularly remarkable event has taken place in the United States of America. This event occurred in Arizona on March 1st and was an earth shattering revelation.
A long awaited press conference was given by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a five time elected Sheriff, which should have made national and international headlines. Arpaio’s credentials include serving in the United States Army from 1950 to 1953, service as a federal narcotics agent serving in countries all over the world with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), and served as the head of the Arizona DEA. Without doubt, this is a serious Law Enforcement Officer, not one to be taken in by tin-foil-hat wearing loons.
Yet, in the five days since his revelations there has been little in the way of serious reporting on the findings he presented in his presser. With 6 short videos, the Sheriff and his team presented a devastating case, one the tame US press is apparently unable to report.
This is about what you would expect from a Donofrio Groupie namely, a complete disconnect from Reality. The MSM is pretty much ignoring the story because Sheriff Joe and The Cold Case Posse lack credibility. Most people, including journalists, realize that something is wrong when a law enforcement investigation lets a person with a grudge, like Jerome “Jerry” Corsi, participate in the first place, and provide evidence, and be responsible for examining documents. Documents which supposedly are now missing.
And the ones too dense to pick up on that, will hopefully still stumble over the fact that one of the investigators, Deputy Michael Zullo, had a pre-existing book deal with Corsi. Which means Zullo and Corsi had a financial interest in the outcome of the investigation. Yep, most Americans would have an instinctual distrust of such a thing, and would probably see the actions of Sheriff Joe and the Cold Case Posse as more interesting than their silly, flawed, and unprofessional findings.
Sooo, what’s a Good Birther to do when they have this earth-shattering story and Americans do a collective yawn??? Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a country where people didn’t find crooked investigations, abuse of power, and money-grubbing Polizei out of the ordinary??? Somewhere like maybe a former communist country where American ideas of fairness seem pollyanny??? Hmmm. Oh yes!!! RUSSIA!!!
This shows how far the Birthers have sunk in their mad attempt to get Obama on this issue. Cotter’s story was even carried at that Bastion Of Conservatism, Free Republic, with nary a whimper from the anti-commie crowd there:
However, publishing an article in Pravda isn’t really the issue. The more important questions are why and how Cotter missed the whopping big story about Corsi’s involvement and the pre-existing book deal. Did it not ever occur to her, as a journalist, that there was a good reason why the American MSM ignored the story??? A reason that maybe had nothing to do with protecting Obama??? I hope that she takes off her Birfer-colored glasses long enough to reflect on that. Because without that critical sense, all Cotter can look forward to are more hack writing jobs. Perhaps working at World Net Daily.
Note 1: Биртхерс всех стран, объединяйтесь! Well, if I did the translation thing correctly, this means, “Birthers of all countries, Unite!” Which is based on “Workers of the World, Unite!” Wiki says:
The political slogan Workers of the world, unite! (German: “Proletarier aller Länder vereinigt Euch!”, literally “Proletarians of all countries, unite!”) is one of the most famous rallying cries of communism, found in The Communist Manifesto (1848), by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. A variation (“Workers of all lands, unite”) is also inscribed on Marx’s tombstone.
This slogan was the USSR State motto (Пролетарии всех стран, соединяйтесь! Proletariy vsekh stran, soyedinyaytes’!), appeared in the coat of arms of the Soviet Union, on 1919 Russian SFSR banknotes (in German, French, Chinese, English, and Arabic) and in most Soviet newspapers. Contemporarily, some socialist and communist parties continue using it. Moreover, it is a common usage in popular culture, often chanted during labour strikes and protests
Note 2. Ruskies. The Urban Dictionary says:
Term coined during the Crimean War. Popularized my America during the cold war as a derogatory term.
“Nuke those damn Ruskies.”
Note 3. Salvador Dali. Yes, that is him in the Image. It is from this absolutely fascinating blog, More Things Than Are Dreamt Of:
