The wacko conspiracy theories perpetrated against President Barack Obama have reached a new height.
Apparently unsatisfied with simply questioning the country of the president's birth, crazy people calling themselves "conservatives" are now suggesting the president had some kind of secret brain surgery, like he's the Manchurian Candidate.
The website Escapetyranny.com, which bills itself a "social network and forum for conservatives," has this insightful article, titled: "What's that huge long scar on Obama's head?"
"Was it a brain operation?" the article asks. "Has it affected his thinking? Is he really an alien from another planet, which would explain no birth certificate? We have no proof as to where he was born, to whom, where he came from, or what his national origin is. Maybe he’s one of the androids (a replicant), like in Bladerunner, not really human at all. Anything’s possible. This is why we need answers — to put a stop to this kind of speculation."
Unsurprisingly, the article goes on to criticize the media: "When will the media start inquiring into what that huge scar on his head is all about?"
The article, linked here, has been shared more than 2,000 times on Facebook.
There's crazy and then there's craaaaazy. These guys are the latter.
