Obama Website Fights ‘Smears’ With A Lie

From his fans at Reuters:

Obama launches Web site to fight rumors

Thu Jun 12

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama has launched a Web site to dispel rumors about his faith and patriotism and his wife’s views on race that have dogged his candidacy for more than a year.

The Web site, at http://www.fightthesmears.com, offers detailed responses to several rumors that have continued to circulate online and in conservative news outlets despite efforts to knock them down, and encourages supporters to e-mail those responses to others.

The Web site says the Illinois senator’s wife, Michelle, who like her husband is black, has never used the racially divisive term "whitey," as some blogs and conservative commentators have said.

Michelle has never spoken publicly at either of the two venues where she is alleged to have made the remark, the site says.

The site also tackles false rumors that Obama, who will take on Republican John McCain in the November election, is Muslim.

"Senator Obama has never been a Muslim, was not raised as a Muslim, and is a committed Christian," the site says.

A photograph shows Obama with his hand on a Bible as he is sworn into the U.S. Senate, to counter a rumor that he used a Koran when he was sworn in.

A CNN profile of the Indonesian school he attended as a child is used to dispel a rumor that it teaches radical Islamic tenets.

The site also puts in context passages from Obama’s books that have been excerpted as supposed evidence of his racial resentments, and contains a video of him leading the Pledge of Allegiance to dispel a rumor that he refuses to do so.

What a laff.

Isn’t our watchdog media enough?

The Web site says the Illinois senator’s wife, Michelle, who like her husband is black…

Er, so much for the truth, eh? Mr. Obama is only half black.

Michelle has never spoken publicly at either of the two venues where she is alleged to have made the remark, the site says.

Alleged by Democrat spokesman Larry "Crazy" Johnson.

The site also puts in context passages from Obama’s books that have been excerpted as supposed evidence of his racial resentments…

Something I have also railed against. And, again, most likely (at least originally) the work of Moby posters and other Democrat dirty tricksters.

By the way, it is once again instructive to note the photo (at the top) that Reuters has run with this story. Not only is Mr. Obama sporting a US flag pin, he is positively wrapped in the flag.

And yet we have seen photos of his massive rallies where there is not an American flag to be seen.

 Update!

As others have noted in the comments below, this website got off to a telling start when on their first day they posted their own lie:

Of course this is simply untrue. But who will call them on it?

Moreover, most of these "smears" originated with Democrats (Larry Johnson) and other disinformationalists in the Moby/Soros tradition.

But they needed something out there so they could start up this worthy site.
