(Newser) – Lou Dobbs is being cruelly oppressed. He says the left is trying to “silence” him for demanding that Barack Obama produce a birth certificate. “My god, you’re talking about the third rail of American journalism, baby!” he said on his radio show yesterday. Among these scary lefties? “Tea-bagging queen Rachel Maddow,” who had the effrontery to call Dobbs a “birther.”

“I never said I’m a ‘birther.’ I’m not,” he declared. "I don’t know how many times I’ve said, ‘Barack Obama is a citizen of the United States. Why not release your birth certificate? What is the big deal with saying that?” Of course, it’s not just tea-bagging queens who think Dobbs is being ridiculous. Bill O’Reilly and even Ann Coulter have criticized his stance.
