Leonard Zeskind is a “moron,” according to Tea Party birther queen

Leonard Zeskind is a “moron,” according to Tea Party birther queen - 2.7 out of 5 based on 7 votes

Last week I wrote a letter to the IREHR reading public asking for financial contributions. In return, IREHR received the usual small number of donations that keep us ticking. We also received a couple of polite requests by Tea Party supporters asking us to take them off our mail list. We gladly complied. And then we got a letter from Orly Taitz, the immigrant born in the former Soviet Union who has been making all that noise about how she did not believe President Barack Obama was a natural-born American citizen and therefore could not be president of the United States.

"you are a moron," she wrote to me, starting her commentary without the required capital letter. "Tea party is there to defend your right to bear arms against this abusive regime," ending without the requisite period.

Now, if I am reading this correctly, Ms. Taitz is saying she and the Tea Partiers have a right to take up weapons against the government. That is quite a statement from someone who has made so many other declarations that did not turn out to be true or accurate.

If you do not agree with Ms. Taitz, I urge you to show that by making a contribution to IREHR by hitting the DONATE button, or sending a check to IREHR, P.O. Box 411552, Kansas City, Missouri 64141.

Thank you.
