Joseph Farah: Birth Certificate Theories Are ‘Popular Because of Us’

After Andrew Breitbart criticized World Net Daily Editor-in-Chief Joseph Farah for using his speaking slot at the National Tea Party Convention to raise questions about President Obama’s citizenship, I chatted with Farah about why and how he wanted the media to cover his pet issue.

“I really want to know the answer to this question,” said Farah, “and the people in that room really wanted to know the answer to this question. And I’m not going to let some Republican board of political correctness or some media board of political correctness decide that I can’t ask the question.”

As we talked, Will Bunch of the Philadelphia Daily News joined the conversation and followed up on Farah’s claim that the “birther” controversy had been bad for WND.

“The birth certificate theory is really popular on the internet,” said Bunch.

“Well, it’s popular because of us,” said Farah. “We essentially created it, didn’t we? That wasn’t a decision made because there was a constituency out there waiting for this, [or] it was a way to make money. Those people had to be found.”

Farah suggested that WND had kept a brush fire going, evidenced by legislation in several states (not of it has yet passed) that demands proof of citizenship from presidential candidates. “[Obama]‘s going to have to produce it if he wants to run for re-election,” said Farah.

He added that the proof-of-citizenship bill introduced in Congress by Rep. Bill Posey (R-Fla.) won’t do the trick, because it allows facsimiles — like Obama’s certificate of live birth, available online — to prove citizenship. “The Posey bill is flawed,” said Farah.

Still, Farah was more optimistic than pessimistic about the resilience of the “birther” subculture, pointing out that Obama had criticized those who “question my citizenship” at his National Prayer Breakfast speech.

“He’s even talking about it now!” said Farah.
