Clinton 2008 sr adviser Sid Blumenthal pushed McClatchy so hard on birther story that they sent a reporter to Kenya.https://t.co/cuKqvVZfvh— Phil Kerpen (@kerpen) September 17, 2016
McClatchy buried the lede on its own writeup. We wouldn't exist if they played up their own compelling info! https://t.co/MC4BkOasop— Breitbart News (@BreitbartNews) September 17, 2016
UPDATE: McClatchy actually sent a reporter to Kenya to investigate Blumenthal's claim https://t.co/ZdcQoF0Nn2— Twitchy Team (@TwitchyTeam) September 17, 2016
As Breitbart News reported earlier this month, other left-wing media outlets, like Politico and the Guardian, had already traced the Birther movement back to Democrats and Ms. Clinton. Using his wayback machine on Wednesday, the Post‘s David Weigel took an in-depth look at the origins of the false rumors that President Obama is a practicing Muslim who was not born in a America. Weigel’s reporting contains the final pieces of a very disturbing puzzle.
What Weigel found and re-reported was astounding, details many of us had forgotten or never heard of, including a 2007 bombshell memo from the Clinton campaign’s chief strategist.
What the left-wing Weigel left out of his reporting was even more astounding, including a documented confrontation between Clinton and Obama over the Birther issue, and video of Hillary herself stoking doubt about Obama’s Christian faith.
Because the Washington Post‘s primary job is to protect Democrats, Weigel’s headline and conclusion are an objective lie. Despite the fact that what he uncovered (and chose to not cover) points directly to Ms. Clinton and her campaign, Weigel concludes she had nothing to do with the Birther movement.
Naturally, Weigel’s own facts support the exact opposite conclusion.....
Same way racist Democrats started KKK & Jim Crow Laws, they started Obama #Birtherism & then try to revise history by blaming Republicans.— Feisty☀️Floridian (@peddoc63) September 16, 2016
