Joe Arpaio Targeted in Prank Involving Obama Kenyan Birth Video, Which He Never Even Saw

Categories: Birthers (sigh)

The fakest fake video in the faking world.
A hoax video of President Obama's birth in a Kenyan hospital, intended to make asses out of "birthers" like Sheriff Joe Arpaio once they bought into its legitimacy, failed miserably.

The New York Observer, um, exposed the video as fake -- a video we hadn't even heard of until they called B.S. on it -- but it was apparently made by some guy who has a penchant for pulling pranks on celebrities.

Arpaio apparently wasn't fooled by this incredibly fake video of a woman birthing a baby that looks like it's a year or two away from growing a mustache, most likely because he didn't even see it.

His spokeswoman Lisa Allen tells New Times that not only did the Sheriff not see it, but he wasn't even aware that it existed.

Almost got 'em, boys.

The director of this video was a guy named Nimrod Kamer, who explained the intent of the video in an email to the Observer:

Tea-party and birther bloggers, as well as rightwing pundits, Fox News affiliates and people like Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Dr. Jerome Corsi [2], are convinced Obama was born in Kenya and desperately looking for proof, any visual clip to "end the discussion" once and for all.

If Obama was born in Kenya he cannot be president. They refuse to believe a birth certificate Obama provided in a 2011 white house press conference [3] is real. In Arizona they tried to put O off the ballot until they get further docs from Hawaii (real birth place).

So - we want to give them the evidence, and embarrass them later, right before the election, showing how they fell for it.
[...]

The video was apparently meant to look really goofy, in order to make the prank funnier if people actually bought into it, but according to Arpaio's office, he didn't even see it.

You can see the prank video below, and just look at the size of that friggin' baby.

So, how's that whole Obama thing working out for you now?

Good luck paying for that "healthcare" you're getting.

Arpaio has a new T.V. Commercial , he says: "I don't make the laws, I just enforce them."

 

HOGWASH!

 

Arpaio had his Racist Pal Kris Kobach join with Arpaio's Former Deputy Russell Pearce(Disgraced Racist Recalled Senator) whom Arpaio sponsored in to the Legislation to write the Racist laws for Arpaio. (Arizona's E-veriffy, and Racist SB1070.)

 

These Laws have Crashed and Divided Arizona, and America!

 

Arpaio chose not to "Enforce Chid Rape Laws", and allowed Chid Rapist's to continue Raping Children for years after being reported to Arpaio's M.C.S.O.

 

Time for a Sheriff that does'nt "Write the Laws", and does go after "Chid Rapists!

 

Penzone 2012!

I dont get the story line. If Joe never saw the "prank video" , what's the point here?

It's also a super-8 video that was apparently made before super-8 was even invented.  Someone kept changing the date on the Wikipedia entry for super-8 to 1960... apparently part of the same ploy.

Whoever shot that video must be nuts if they think for a second that anyone will believe that it's really Obama taking is first breaths. If it was actually filed in Kenya in 1961, it would not have been in color. And yeah, look at the size of that baby! I looks to be at least a year old and must weigh almost 30 lbs. Something that big would not have made it thru the birth canal.

ROFL!!!

 

This guy needs to learn the power of the press release and sending the film directly to Joe, WND, Rush Limbaugh and a few others.

 

If they had known about it they would have jumped on it. Too bad they did not.

 

It would have been fun to watch as their tea heads exploded

Nimrod - what an appropriate name for the producer of the video.

The racism of yesteryear has come full circle in our county.  The entire world embraced our choice of a black President four years ago and most nations still support him.  The fringe elements of bigotry have crept through into the mainstream once again with conservative mouthpieces planting the seeds of hate.  The only doubt lies here at home rooting from bigotry.  Watch the white hands paint Obama in Blackface at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/10/bamboozling-obama.html

It's a fake story created to bring the birther issue up during the election.

Pretty sure all of that is on purpose, so that if the birthers had bit on this it would have been that much easier to ridicule them for biting

No it's a fake story to make the birthers look even more stupid than they already do.

The Old Fool would've soiled his Depends, and JAF would have to change them (a very graphic image indeed. Now I need some alcohol.)

 @Flyer9753  @dregstudios shrugs, unlike ellie may, I don't care whether you think I'm racist or not. black & white is black & white.

 @Flyer9753 You don't know shit about me so don't call me racist. I am saying, what kind of person denies their heritage to become a "black man" in order to be used as such by others?

 

It's usually the person who is calling people racist who has issues with others being different.

 

Just because I know the difference and am willing to understand this is the first lie of Obama's candidacy doesn't make me racist.

 

If you don't like my opinion I don't care. I didn't ask you to nor did I ask for your opinion about me. You are very wrong and you would never admit it I'm sure.

 @Eleanor_Holguin  @dregstudios Dreg's mom told him that he can accomplish any thing that he puts his mind to and he took that to mean that he can change a person's racial makeup just by thinking it really hard.
