MSM’s New Meme: Obama Supporters Are ‘Creepy’ And ‘Cult-Like’

Media Matters:

CNN’s Carol Costello said that audience response at a Barack Obama rally is “a scene some increasingly find not inspirational, but ‘creepy,’ ” quoting columnists who have likened Obama supporters to members of a cult or described their enthusiasm as “creepy.” On-screen text during Costello’s report read: “OBAMA-MANIA BACKLASH” and “PASSION ‘CULT-LIKE’ TO SOME.” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer similarly cited other writers to make the same assertion: “ABC’s Jake Tapper notes the ‘Helter-Skelter cult-ish qualities’ of ‘Obama worshipers,’ what Joel Stein of the Los Angeles Times calls ‘the Cult of Obama.’ ”

    Carol Costello is to new what Cheeze Whiz is to cheese…Krauthhammer is know for his extreme right wing views.. the other two I don’t really know.. but Obama is a threat to the status quo and the interests of the people it serves… they tried racism, xenophobia, kindergarten essays, etc.. and these have not worked, so now people who want change that benefits the majority are cultists..sure, of course.
