An Open Letter To Mario Apuzzo


My Dear Counselor:

Leo Donofrio, a professional poker player and sometime attorney, invented out of whole cloth the myth that there are three classes of American citizens: naturalized, native born, and natural born.
.
He further adds to this fairy tale, that the last class - natural born - is solely composed of people who were born to parents who were both citizens at the time of birth. And he adds to this urban myth, that only this last class of citizen can aspire to the presidency, thus disenfranchising a substantial segment of the population.
.
This has been picked up, and amplified, by you and Orly Taitz. Taitz is a dual US/Israel citizen by way of Russia, with a diploma mill law "degree," and who up to recently made her living as a mediocre dentist. She has now abandoned her dental practice, and made her life's work the quixotic quest of driving Barack Obama from office by circulating scurrilous rumors.
.
Using your professional stature, your triumvirate has cultivated a credulous mob of gullible people, 99.9% of who are white and feel disenfranchised, and assured them of the righteousness of your cause.
.
Then, pouring gasoline on the fire, your coterie along with alleged ruminant molester Joseph Farah, have induced people to send "donations" so that you can continue with your noble cause, hinting darkly that if the cash stops the Republic will crash and burn.
.
Glenn Beck, exhibit A in galloping hypocrisy, brays on his shows about the threat to the Constitution by President Obama - someone who was elected fair and square, unlike the 2000 election. He then is lampooned and starts squealing like a stuck pig. Knowing full well that parody is protected by the same Constitution that he hides behind for his hatchet jobs, he has a hired gun send threatening letters to the satirists, and then goes forum shopping looking for a court where he believes his bruised feelings will be assuaged. He ended up with an arbitration panel in Switzerland, believing they would shut down the website lampooning him. To his surprise they would not, and extracted an agreement from his lawyers that any more 1st Amendment disputes would be heard in the States.
.
Interesting how portable your beliefs are.

I guess the proof that this is an "urban legend" is that the only dictionary that agrees with Apuzzo is the Urban Dictionary.

Misha,

I fail to see the point of your letter. I also note that your hate-filled letter has some underlying contradictions which expose the shallowness and insincerity of your position.

You accuse those who now question Obama’s eligibility to be President to be white racists. Yet you state Obama is “someone who was elected fair and square, unlike the 2000 election.” Your reference to the 2000 election is to President Bush, who we know is white. So you are saying that Bush did not fairly win the election. It is clear that you are questioning Bush’s legitimacy to be the then-President just like those who are questioning Obama’s legitimacy to be President today. But does your questioning Bush’s eligibility make you a racist or some other loathsome thing like in your opinion those who are questioning Obama’s eligibility are?

You then criticize Glen Beck for defending himself, saying that he was “lampooned and starts squealing like a stuck pig. Knowing full well that parody is protected by the same Constitution that he hides behind for his hatchet jobs, he has a hired gun send threatening letters to the satirists . . .”

Did I not “lampoon” Obama for not releasing to the American public his real birth certificate and other historical documents that would have allowed the public, media, and political institutions to properly vet him for the Office of President? Have you and other Obama supporters not been “squealing like a stuck pig. Knowing full well that parody is protected by the same Constitution that you hide behind for your hatchet jobs?” Are you one of Obama’s “hired guns” who now has published your letter attacking me for doing nothing more than representing clients in a legal case that questions Obama’s eligibility to be President?

So, like so much concerning those who pass judgment on Obama, you want a double standard. You are perfectly normal in questioning Bush’s presidential eligibility, but those who question Obama’s eligibility are white racists. It is perfectly acceptable for you to defend your constitutional right to complain about Glen Beck, but it is not acceptable for those who would use that same right to question Obama’s eligibility to be President.

I recommend that you honestly re-examine your position in this whole matter and re-evaluate the sincerity of your expressed feelings which we all need to do from time to time in order to stay the proper course.

Mario Apuzzo, Esq.

The birthers, the tea baggers, the screamers, and the deathers continued extreme minority presence will become tiresome to mainstream America, if it has not already done so. To all the birthers in La, La Land, it is on you to prove to all of us that your assertion is true, if there are people who were there and support your position then show us the video (everyone has a price), either put up or frankly shut-up. I heard Orly Taitz, is selling a tape (I think it’s called “Money, Lies and Video tape”). She is from Orange County, CA, now I know what the mean when they say “behind the Orange Curtain”, when they talk about Orange County, the captial of Conspiracy Theories. You know Obama has a passport, he travel abroad before he was a Senator, but I guess they were in on it. In my opinion the Republican Party has been taken over the most extreme religious right (people who love to push their beliefs on others while trying to take away the rights of those they just hate) and that’s who they need to extract from their party if they real want to win. Good Luck, because as they said in WACO, “We Ain’t Coming Out”. I heard that she now wants to investigate the “Republican 2009 Summer of Love” list: Assemblyman, Michael D. Duvall (CA), Senator John Ensign (NV), Senator Paul Stanley (TN), Governor Mark Stanford (SC), Board of Ed Chair, and Kristin Maguire AKA Bridget Keeney (SC).
