    Birthers vs. Truthers

    Who are Dumber: Obama Voters/Democrats or “Birthers” « Poll Insider

    "50%+ Of Democrats in a Scripps Howard poll believed that it is Very Likely or Somewhat Likely that George W. Bush knew or helped plan the 9/11 attacks? 1/2 Democrats are truthers, are they crazy? Does the media obsess over the truthers? Do they constantly write new stories to bring more attention to the truthers than actual truthers do? Where is Charlie Sheen and Howard Dean to straighten this all out for us? Aren’t they leaders in the truther movement?"

    I realize the media has, and will continue, to obsess on people who wish to see President Obama's birth certificate and that same media will ignore the truthers like Michael Moore and Congresswoman McKinney but do you see any sort of equivalency?

    Darn, screwed up the poll, again.

    Birthers are the new things the media focuses on, they're more politically relevant.

    There is no link to any Scripps Howard poll in the blog post you cite. It also cites an alleged CNN survey that goes to a .pdf file not hosted on a CNN domain, claims a Zogby poll that cannot be found in the link, and makes additional uncited poll claims. The blog post is non-credible, and your attempt to pass it off as evidence in itself is even less so. I suggest you either delete this thread or come up with a more credible basis for trying to pretend there is a significant left-wing equivalent to birtherism. I would rather not believe this thread contains deliberate falsehoods.

    To my understanding, Alex Jones is considered a leader in the 9/11 truth movement.

    I think half of those democrat truthers are on this board.

    I did promise to defend against anybody suggesting "birthers" are crazy. Are you ready to have a debate with me about this?. Then we could have a poll to see who members think won.

    You may want to just leave the poll broken.

    Not really. I also don't invite Jehovah's Witnesses into my home to discuss religion. So, I'm assuming you would put true believers in both camps as equivalent.

    Re: Birthers vs. Truthers

    I don't know nothing about no truthers, But I can bet they'd be too intimidated to ever reply here. We would spend the whole thread telling him or her how racist they are and ignore the video recording of George Bush explaining why they had to blow up the building. We all know that by now. Have any ideas that aren't exactly like our own? Take it on the road, Bub.
