Because you are arguing that birtherism is racist solely on the color of Obama's skin, when trutherism is FAR more offensive and inflammatory. Trutherism is on a whole magnitude worse than birtherism. It's like comparing a dude sticking his tongue into the holiest of holies with a dude giving another man's wife a foot massage.
I'm not sure about the analogy you used, but where are you getting the interpretation that I think Birtherism is worse than Trutherism? I explained one as racist. The other one is clearly not racist. The latter being worse is a matter of opinion, to which I agree. Again, I don't understand why you're equating my explanation of Birtherism is racist as "and also much worse than Trutherism." You asked me to "square" my explanation of Birtherism=racist with 9/11 Trutherism. I still am not sure why.
Apples and oranges:

Oh, I agree, but not for the reasons you think.
Birtherism stupidly challenges where Obama was born - something he had no control over and was only an issue because he was POTUS and the Constitution requires POTUS to be a natural born citizen.
And what about B. Hussein, do you think, would garner such skepticism regarding eligibility? As has been pointed out, Ted Cruz' eligibility was questioned, but nowhere near to the degree that Obama's was questioned. Both have foreign sounding names, but only one looked nonwhites. So visual perception, as it relates to Birtherism, was the most likely driver.
Trutherism alleges that Bush was actually behind the 9/11 attack. It doesn't suggest that he was merely negligent but that he was an active participant in an attack that took the lives of over 2000 people in the trade center.
Agreed. Still don't understand why that needs to be "squared" with Birtherism.
Birtherism is typical hyper-partisan BS that plagues every president and is actually extremely tame when compared with truthism.

The former point is where we disagree and the latter point is where we agree.
Are we "square"? Or do you need me to, for whatever reason I currebtly do not comprehend, articulate that Trutherism is more racist than Birtherism?
