Hypocrisy Watch: Farah Accuses Obama of Evasion
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Joseph Farah's April 7 worldNetDaily column is yet another defense of WND's obsession with Barack Obama's birth certificate. He wants us to believe that he cares only about "he sanctity of the Constitution and the rule of law" when, in fact, he has repeatedly demonstrated that he will stop at nothing, including ruining the credibility of his own website and latching onto a thoroughly debunked conspiracy theory, to use his hatred to hound Obama out of office.

Even more hilariously, Farah asserts that Obama is being "permitted to get away with his deliberate evasion of the law" -- never mind that his own website found that the birth certificate issued by Obama's campaign was "authentic."

But Farah is engaging in a series of evasions as well:

  • He won't acknowledge the facts of the August 2008 WND article finding Obama's birth certificate to be authentic and declaring taht Philip Berg's lawsuit over the birth certificate in part "relies on discredited claims."
  • He won't publicly release the  petition so the claims WND has made about it about the number of signatures on it can be independently verified.
  • He won't discuss the relationship between WND and fellow birth certificate obsessive Orly Taitz, whose lawsuits on the issue have been prominently featured by WND.

Farah has no business accusing others of evasions when he refuses to answer simple questions about his own actions. Such hypocrisy makes him into the "whack-job conspiracy nut" he denies he is.
