Fox News Renews Debunked Benghazi Conspiracy Theory Using Letter From Birther Group (VIDEO)

Renewing debunked conspiracy theories about the Benghazi attacks, Fox News featured a letter from a group founded by a known birther that was sent out last April, calling for an investigation into the attacks.

The group, Special Operations Speaks, has promoted various long-debunked conspiracy theories and was founded by Larry Bailey, a former Navy SEAL who is a birther and has made the bizarre claim that President Obama’s real father was the communist writer Frank Marshall Davis.

“In his books, Obama said his mentor was a fellow named Frank Marshall Davis. Frank Marshall Davis was a member of Communist Party USA,” Bailey said. “He wrote for the communist party’s Hawaii newsletter, he was a close friend of Obama’s mother, and there’s a strong case that Frank Marshall Davis rather than Barack Obama, Sr. was Barack Obama, Jr.’s father and that Barack Obama, Sr. was just an administrative father of convenience.”

According to Media Matters, In addition to Happening Now, several Fox News programs including Fox & Friends, America’s Newsroom, and America Live devoted entire segments to the letter — all failing to mention Bailey’s birther background and conspiracy theories.

    These losers are like a dog with a bone, there is no meat left but they just refuse to let go of a non-issue.

    Honestly, who gives a shit who Obama’s father was? Even if I was a Republican (one of the sane ones that doesn’t believe in all the Teapublican conspiracy crap), I wouldn’t give two shits who Obama’s father was. Reagan could have been spawned by an olympic tennis player and an MIT mathematician and I would still think he was an asshole.

    Never in my life have I seen a group of people so damned determined to not just try to oppose the politics of an elected official, but to also dehumanize that elected official. Obama can’t just be a populist, left of center Democrat, he has to also be a liar, a manchurian candidate, a fraudulent citizen, and a bastard lying about his parentage. This on top of the constant, inaccurate barrage of accusations that he is a Marxist, Socialist, Muslim, Capitalist Insider, opponent of free trade, opponent of wall street, opponent of main street, and any other positive thing to which one may be opposed.

    It’s not just enough for these assholes to say, “I disagree with the President’s policies,” but rather Obama’s character and family must be totally destroyed. Pathetic.

    Blathering idiots.
    The prior administration (Bush 43 and DICK) had 11 diplomatic missions (embassies and consulates) attacked. 54 Americans DEAD. 90 critically injured. ZERO INVESTIGATIONS.
