Shep Smith attacks right-wing ‘crazies’ Rips people questioning eligibility as being ‘out there in a scary place’

I personally listened to the episode of Studio B with Shepard Smith, and tried to email him on what I thought was an incredible mischaraterization of Americans who question such issues as Barack Obamas citizenship, his ties to Islam or the fact that many of us think he is a Marxist-Socialist. Smith comments, and not just those today but many others, just go to prove that just because he is from Mississippi and an Ole Miss grad doesnt always mean he is conservative.

World Net Daily-Fox News anchor Shepard Smith, host of the top-rated evening cable newscast, believes Americans challenging the eligibility of Barack Obama to hold the officeof president are “crazies,” saying “there is no truth whatsoever” to the suggestion Obama is not a “natural born citizen.”

Smith made the remark during analysis of today’s shooting at the U.S. Holocaust MemorialMuseum, where an elderly gunman opened fire with a rifle, killing a security guard before himself being shot. Police were probing an alleged white supremacist, James von Brunn, as the assailant.

During his interview with Heidi Beirich of the Southern Poverty Law Center, Smith said:

“There are these crazies out there who want to pretend [Obama’s] not a citizen of the United States, who want to pretend that his religion is something they see as in some way troublesome to them and all of us. And there is a group perpetuating this thought, and there is a culture to which you can attach yourself very easily through the Internet. … We know it’s absolutely – there is no truth whatsoever – zero – to any of those ideas, yet they live within the computer and they fester in people’s minds.”

Beirich agreed completely with Smith’s remarks, as she responded:

“You’re hitting the nail on the head about these kinds of crazed conspiracies whether they’re about the president, or we’re hearing things like FEMA setting up camps to round up Americans and put them in. I’m getting bad sort of deja-vu from the 1990s when anti-government militias were on the rise, when Tim McVeigh committed that [bombing] in Oklahoma City and I really am hoping that we’re not going through a repeat of that.”

Are you motivated yet to join the billboard campaign and clear up the air of mystery surrounding Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility to serve?

Smith made numerous references to a Department of Homeland Security report warning of potential violence from “right-wing extremists,” and said he’s been personally disturbed by an increase in e-mail to him from people “who are way out there on a limb … out there in a scary place.”

He read what he called a representative message that asked, “How dare you tell us to get over the birth certificate … ?”
