I am laughing out loud. 😆
The legally eligible future King of England gets married, and the tasteless, clueless usurper Obama, a British commoner and uninvited to the world festivities, is still trying to prove he was born in the United States.
And the the much touted ‘release’ of a digital image of Obama’s non-certified long form certification of live birth still doesn’t prove it! Why? Because it is so obviously a fake that intelligence agencies around the world already have concluded that the digital image is a “rank forgery”. Confirmed.
“Straw man” is one of the best-named fallacies, because it is memorable and vividly illustrates the nature of the fallacy. Imagine a fight in which one of the combatants sets up a man of straw, attacks it, then proclaims victory. All the while, the real opponent stands by untouched.
Like the judicial invention of ‘standing’, Obama has set up another straw man, the fallacy that ‘the birth certificate’ was enough to prove he was not a usurper to avoid the crushing reality that he is not a natural born citizen and still not eligible for the Presidency.
Description of “The Birth Certificate Straw Man”
The Straw Man fallacy is committed when a person simply ignores a person’s actual position and substitutes a distorted, exaggerated or misrepresented version of that position. This sort of “reasoning” has the following pattern:
- Person A has position X. A Natural born citizen is born in US of two citizen parents owing no foreign allegiance, and Obama is not a natural born citizen
- Person B presents position Y (which is a distorted version of X). Obama and bots say birth in the United States is the only criterion for a natural born citizen
- Person B attacks position Y. Obama gripes that he has submitted it, calls everyone racist who disputes it, delays, jails or neutralizes opponents…then releases another forged version
- Therefore X is false/incorrect/flawed. Therefore, I am/Obama is a natural born citizen and eligible for the Presidency.
This sort of “reasoning” is fallacious because attacking a distorted version of a position simply does not constitute an attack on the position itself . (emphasis added)
In other words, producing a COLB or proving U.S.birth does not attack– or refute– the nbc requirement that both parents must be U.S. citizens, and that Obama was born with divided allegiance.
Obama has conceded, and proven once again by this latest joke of an electronic image, that he is not a natural born citizen, and not eligible for the Presidency.
When your opponent sets up a straw man, set it on fire and kick the cinders around the stage. Don’t worry about losing the Strawperson-American community vote.
