Three Years Old, the Obama Occidental Hoax is Still Being Spread, this time by Miami County Liberty

It’s been three years since someone issued a hoax e-mail that claimed to be an AP article breaking the “news” that Barack Obama had been exposed as a secret foreigner whose name was really “Barry Soetoro”:

In a move certain to fuel the debate over Obama’s qualifications for the presidency, the group “Americans for Freedom of Information” has Released copies of President Obama’s college transcripts from Occidental College … Released today, the transcript school indicates that Obama, under the name Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia as an undergraduate. The transcript was released by Occidental College in compliance with a court order in a suit brought by the group in the Superior Court of California. The transcript shows that Obama (Soetoro) applied for financial aid and was awarded a fellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program. To qualify, for the scholarship, a student must claim foreign citizenship.”

Just as quickly as the e-mail started making the rounds, it was quickly and repeatedly debunked. There is no such article in the AP archives, and there is no released Occidental transcript. They can’t be documented, meaning that there is no support for the claims of the hoax “article.”

But that isn’t stopping the adherents to the Obama birth certificate conspiracy theory. Despite clear and readily available documentation that this message is a hoax (and a three year old one at that) people continue to spread it as if it were real, still-“breaking” news.

Here’s another of the groups to do so recently: Miami County Liberty of Miami County, Ohio…

Miami County Liberty posts an Obama hoax for over a month, with nobody checking facts on it

It’s been nearly two months since the hoax posting at Miami County Liberty, and nobody’s bothered to check facts on the story. It’s just another “fact” being added to the pile of documents which together in their sheer volume are being counted as proof of a problem that does not exist.

    How do you know the facts do not exist. Have you seen the Occidental transcripts or are you another Obuma tree-hugging wierdo who doesn’t want the truth out about him? Release the transcripts and put this thing to bed once and for all. Bourne up!

      How do you know your name isn’t really George Davis and that up to now you haven’t been leading a secret amnesiac life as a saxophonist?

      A-HA! You don’t! You must be one-a-them sheet moosic lovers.

    Chumps are losers and “Chunks” are thick ends of wood.

      The “chump” end is the thick end of something in the original slang, Al. The meaning of a human “chump” evolved from this.

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.
