Known as the "Birther" movement, and viewed by many as delusional, the people who believe President Obama is not a natural born citizen and therefore not qualified to serve as president - hence, called "The Usurper" - are preparing a march on Washington to voice their beliefs.
One of the top leaders of the "birther" movement, attorney Philip Berg, is spearheading and organizing the May 29 march, which will meet at President's Park on the southern side of the White House. Berg is asking all attendants to bring their own birth certificates (har ).
The march is also framed as a protest against health care reform. "The Healthcare bill (ObamaCare) signed into Law by Obama on March 23, 2010 is unconstitutional and voidable since he is ineligible to serve as President of the United States," Berg writes.
According to David Weigel of the Washington Post, the march has yet to gain the attention of other "birther" leaders.
The 'birther' movement - viewed by some as symptom, consequence, and incident of covert and not so covert racism - began during the presidential campaign. It has steadily persisted through Mr. Obama's presidency, in spite of overwhelming evidence he was born in the United States -- including his 1961 birth announcement, printed in two Hawaii newspapers. (Might this be because certain pundits keep fanning the flames and stirring the pot?)
Hawaii's Health Department has received a steady flow of requests for information about Mr. Obama's birth in Hawaii , prompting the state legislature to pass a bill that they may ignore such repetitive requests.
