Pathetic Obvious Photoshop by Desperate Birthers

Found this today on the about.com urban legends page. “Welcome to Kenya, birthplace of Barack Obama.” This sign probably looks plausible if you don’t know any Arabic and can’t even recognize when all the letters are unconnected.

And here’s a photo of the original sign this was apparently created from:

The sign if located not in Africa, but in Oman.

And here’s a side-by-side comparison. All of this is courtesy of about.com:

  1. and btw, the words are not even coherent 🙂 and written backwards and say the oposite of what is written in English.

  2. I figured out the backwards “Hawaii isn’t the birthplace of Barack Obama,” but not sure what it supposedly says at the beginning.

    Even if you don’t know Arabic, the sign is still an obvious fraud. Since when was Arabic an official language of Kenya?

    Show me the sign in Swahili and English.

  4. That’s a good point, RoHa. Thanks!

    RoHa is forgetting that Obama is also a secret Muslim and that “Arab” means the same thing as “Muslim.” So Kenya must secretly be an Arabic-speaking Muslim nation instead of an English/Swahili-speaking, majority-Christian nation.
