Oh my God, you guys, this could be the funniest thing I’ve ever read in my entire life. This Birthers blog, entitled “Heretical Ideas”, seems to think that Loki from Marvel Comics is the reason why our President Barack Obama was not born in the U.S. of A. If you don’t know anything about the Birthers, give me a second to explain: they are this far right wing group who somehow, through something not called logic, seems to think Obama is not born in the U.S. and cannot legally be president. Regardless, these people don’t react well to facts: the President released his birth certificate which says he was born in Hawaii, and the state of Hawaii authenticated his birth certificate.
So, the debate should be dead, right? No, no, not at all:
Another metaphysical possibility demonstrating that Obama is not a citizen is Norse Mythology. Prominent in Norse myth is the God Loki, who is a trickster god associated with fire and magic. Loki, like other gods, has enormous power over the universe. Indeed, in the Marvel Comics saga “Ultimates 2,” it was revealed that Loki has the power to shuffle the very fabric of space and time itself, making things disappear from perception. Loki used these powers in the “Ultimates 2” saga to ensure that Thor was captured and imprisoned so that he could not interfere with Loki’s conquest of Asgard.
Clearly, Loki could have used his powers to change the fabric of space-time in order to make it appear that Obama was born in Hawaii when he, in fact, wasn’t.
I mean, its the kind of thing you just let speak for itself, I really shouldn’t add any further comment to any of this, but GOD DAMN I’m floored. Big props go to Laura Hudson at Comics Alliance for finding this gem of human stupidity.
