Two Years Later, Right Wing Still posting the Occidental College April Fool’s Hoax as “Breaking News”

April 26, 2011 at 1:06 am 5 comments

This just goes to show you that you don’t have to read in order to write.

Two years ago, a still-unknown party posted an April Fool’s Day joke that Occidental College had supposedly publicized Barack Obama’s transcript, revealing his supposed Indonesian citizenship and his supposed true name of “Barry Soetoro.” Two years ago, the fake “Associated Press article” was exposed as a fiction. But two years later, a bunch of illiterate right-wing chumps are still baaaaing right along and posting the hoax as breaking news!

The latest list of birther chumps:

American Independent Party candidate Leonard Foster of Nevada still hasn’t gotten the memo about this memo.

Conservative Watch News (logo: a watch!) has not been watching.

The Disclosure Project has a big picture of a pretty kitty cat, but that still doesn’t make the fake Associated Press story real.

Blue Eye View needs a website redesign and a new content provider.

Oh, you silly geese.

    Many, but many are falling on April Fool’s Day joke, the truth that if you are carrying a blog or are a person who has access to some means of communication to spread your thoughts have to learn to analyze and wait and know disclose information

      createdaftertheevent.com, gly.

      Read the “about” page from that website and you’ll see the owner is very clear she had nothing to do with the letter and created her website after the hoax was circulated.

Who removed the text in the above section? What is their agenda? And why won't they let me complete my sent...

A Clue for the Literal-Minded

Read these tiny words very closely: the group Americans for Freedom of Information does not exist, just like the supposed "AP article" you keep cutting and pasting into e-mails to your irritated family does not exist, just like the "Daily Mail article" referenced in the fake "AP article" does not exist. They're all fabrications. Fakes. Hoaxes. Ask yourself why you're so eager to believe these obvious fakes. No, really. Really, really ask yourself.

A Clue for Those Especially Allergic to Satire

No, we didn't create the hoax, either. Remember, we at Americans for Freedom of Information don't exist!

No One knows who did create the hoax. Unfortunately, we don't know No One or where he lives, so we can't ask No One about it. We do know her sister, Imnot Telling, but ever since the thing in the place with that other thing, we're not on speaking terms.
