Doesn't this article sound offensive? The writer calls Obama the Kenyan?

Why doesn't he call him the President or Mr Obama?

Why does he call him the Kenyan

1. The link goes to a fraudulent...

...Obama video, where he is supposedly admitting to a group of people that he was born in Kenya.

What is lacking is the dripping "sarcasm" thingy, such as this: .

2. So the writer is just making a joke about the right saying the President was born in Kenya

 

I guess I can see that but there seems better ways to make fun of the right when they claimed this

3. Honestly, I dunno about the author...

...Mike Weisser - aka "Mike the Gun Guy."

For an apparent gun nut, he does seem to somewhat attempt to moderate his views on this ammo issue:

The 5.56x45 was adopted by the military because of its lethality, and it's a stretch to think of it as a 'sporting' round.

4. Not offensive at all...

 

The reference is used in the context of right wing craziness.

To them, Obama is a muslimkenyancommunist who wants to take everyone's guns, establish America as a Muslim caliphate and implement Sharia law while throwing all non-believers in FEMA camps so their organs can be harvested.

But conservatives are on to him...

5. Because he's an idiot who hates whomever he's told to?

I can think of no other reason. He's a moron who lives on spite and loves to hate.

Oh, wait, it was sarcasm, making fun of morons who live on spite and love to hate.

I just wonder why hunters need armor piercing bullets. Dinosaurs have been gone for 65 million years now and they're about the only thing those bullets would have proven indispensable for.

Besides, we now know they were warm blooded and covered with proto-feathers, not six inch thick green scales a la Japanese flicks.

It's puzzling. They really don't like their toys taken away, even when those toys are useless and dangerous.
