The Tattlesnake – Corsi for Dummies Edition

Was ‘The Obama Nation’ Author Convicted of Distributing Child Pornography in 2003?

Jerome R. Corsi is the author of “The Obama Nation,” [1] a book that includes what influential columnist Joseph A. Palermo has dubbed an “excrementitious narrative” [2] packed with lies [3] and achieved The New York Times’ bestseller list by suspicious means [4]. Corsi also co-authored, with John E. O’Neill, the equally excremental “Unfit For Command” [5] in 2004, which helped sink decorated Vietnam war hero John Kerry’s bid for the presidency.

Now a reputable news source [6] has reported that Corsi was convicted of peddling child pornography in 2003. “In early 2003, authorities indicate, Corsi was indicted for the distribution of child pornography. …Corsi was handed a lenient sentence that included no prison time.” [7] This is not difficult to believe since those on the Republican right, such as former Congressman Mark Foley, have a consistent inclination towards this sort of vile pornography and the despicable use of underage children for sexual satisfaction [8] and typically receive lenient sentences from Republican judges. [9] It’s undeniable that Corsi has a deviant obsession with, as he puts it, “buggering boys” [10a] and “boy bumpers,” [10b] as evidenced in his past statements.

Is Corsi a Racist?

Corsi has demonstrated his strong affiliation to racist white supremacists, both in the past and recently. [11] It is not hard to imagine that someone of this mindset would agree wholeheartedly with these words of David Duke, former head of the Ku Klux Klan, “Obama is a visual aid for white Americans who just don’t get it yet that we have lost control of our country, and unless we get it back we are heading for complete annihilation as a people.” [12] The idea of a black man as president no doubt has Corsi crawling the walls. [13]

What we are left with is a clear picture of Jerome R. Corsi as a perverted white racist peddler of lies and child porn who would be welcomed by NAMBLA. [14] This is a man, plainly, who is not to be trusted. [15]

IMPORTANT — READ THIS: Okay, let’s look at what I did here: I included some factual information, along with speculation, innuendo, specious diversion and outright falsehood to smear Corsi, using questionable questions in bold and an overabundance of footnotes, some of them completely bogus, to make it appear as if this is a carefully researched piece of legitimate scholarship to the average reader whom, of course, writers like Corsi know is not going to check all of those footnotes for accuracy. (Ann Coulter practically pioneered this cheesy trick.) This is how his books are written, and why they should be dismissed as the tripe they are.

“The devil decries evil.
Virtue is his guise
To find the hidden villain
Listen for the loudest voice.”

  1. One method for running a new book up the best seller list is the publisher buys the book back in bulk.
    There is usually a footnote next to the title
    and if you read the fine print at the bottom it will offer some scant information.

  2. RS,

    I did something like this years ago when I was a young Navy wife involved in a coffee clotch with other Navy wives. We would discuss current events and they all believed things that were not true because they read them in the newspaper or a magazine.

    One day I spouted off a bunch of “facts” I made up on the spur of the moment and for almost an hour we discussed them with everyone believing them to be true because I had “quoted” them as being from newspapers and magazines. Then I told them the truth that all the “facts” were made up. The women were not happy but they got the point. LOL
