The nazis were leftists - the "national socialist workers party". Uncle Joe, noting the socialist landscape in Europe, and seeking to differentiate his regime from the "others", decreed that all socialist regimes other that the soviets were "fascists". So, ignoring that the regimes of franco, mussilini, hitler, and others were died in the wool socialist, Uncle Joe's stooges in American academia ran with the "fascist" moniker. And eventually that moniker morphed from left to right, because if the sovs are the left, and if Uncle Joe says fascists are the bad guys, then they must be on the right. Right?

Yes they are. That is the point of the thread. The words have meaning. They become embedded in belief systems. If you interview a thousand people on the street and ask them what the nazis were, you'd get unanimous "they're fascist" because that's what they were taught in "school".

"Birthers" are "bad people". "Socialist" = the "N word". People that don't like socialism are racist.

Instead he has spent $1.3 Million to fight those two things from happening.

He's causing the Birthers to stick around instead of just burying the issue once and for all. Maybe is part of the play to label all people who question him or his decisions as "crazy birthers." but it would be very simple for the Birthers to be put to rest. We are a Nation of Proof and seeing Things for ourselves. Heck Congress actually investigated John McCain's birth records and established that he was eligible to serve. But never did with B.O. that is something the Birthers question as well.
You are so right. Why is the money and political capital being spent on this ridiculous matter, if it is indeed a ridiculous matter. Unfortunately, a group of people are being labeled "birthers" and being marginalized because they dare to ask the constitutionally important question - "is he a citizen?". Standard socialist operating procedure - never answer a question. Destroy the questioner.
