Air Force Birther Moran Threatens Something (?) Until Obama Is Arrested
Someone is a little late to this party, hmm? Staff sergeant Moran (his real name, for real, real as they come) heard a totally wicked story "from some guy" that President Obama is a godless robot with a fake human birth certificate. QRAZY, RIGHT? Sergeant Moran is just as freaked out as everyone else, and he has some incoherent demands to make. Morantaped a video of himself claiming to be AWOL from his duties in Germany (he wasn't), dared the Air Force to arrest him or Obama, and them rambled for a while about secret emails with "a lady" (hello, Orly Taitz) and some stuff about Jesus. Oh yeah and, "In identifying [Obama] as my enemy and proclaiming him to be the enemy of the entire country, I squarely place myself in the same situation as himself," whatever that means/ means that Moran is a homo Muslim robot. Well frankly, we do not really believe Sergeant Moran really is who he says he is. No one just grows his birther wings now for the very first time, in 2011, over two years late. So yeah, uh, let's roll the video!
Why is this news? Because "birther nuts are fun," and because Moran is so comically named that news outlets will invent a reason: "He is the first military guy to refuse to serve since President Obama actually produced his birth certificate." Uh, except that: the Air Force says that Moran is not AWOL and that he is on approved leave awaiting discharge. But don't let that detract from the magic.
From TalkingPointsMemo's first story about Sergeant Moran:
"The reason I no longer obey the Commander-in-Chief is not because he's Black, but because he has no credible proof that he is an American," Moran wrote in the comment section of Glenn Beck's The Blaze. "It's simple. Arrest B. Obama or arrest me."
Aaaaaand from the second:
In addition to his opposition to gays serving openly in the military, Moran seems to have had trouble serving alongside Muslims as well. As the Air Force Times reported, he said that he was removed from his position when a coworker complained because she "couldn't handle" him asking a Muslim doctor in his unit about her faith.
"My conscience is violated," he said. "I feel like I'm supporting the flag of whatever those Islamic countries are and the rainbow flag and not the red, white and blue. That's not the kind of people I want to be associated with."
Who understood any of that? Anyone here speak Victimese? [TPM]
