‘Mother Jones’ Suddenly Notices The Cult of Obama

Kevin Drum of the hard left magazine Mother Jones is shocked to have found that there really is a cult of Obama out there.

In an August 19 blog post headlined The Great Emo-Prog vs. O-Bot Debate, Drum was absolutely flabbergasted to find that there really are people who imagine that Obama is the coming of the messiah.

“I’ve long been skeptical of the idea that Obama has a core group of supporters from 2008 who really do consider him The One, a shining beacon of light who can do no wrong. But I’m the one who was wrong,” Drum wrote ruefully.

But Drum has found to his amazement that there really are people who will call you any manner of names, assume you are a racist, and claim you aren’t a real leftist with even the slightest criticism of the Obammessiah.

Drum also complained that,

If you express anything short of absolute condemnation of everything the NSA has done, your Twitter feed quickly fills up with hysterical proclamations from the emo-progs that you’re a right-wing shill, a government lackey, a useful idiot for the slave state, and an obvious fool. Conversely, if you criticize the NSA’s surveillance programs, your Twitter feed quickly fills up with equally hysterical proclamations from the O-Bots that you hate Obama, you’ve always hated Obama, and you’re probably a racist swine who’s been waiting ever since 2009 for a chance to take down the nation’s first black president.

Over at National Review’s The Corner blog, Charles W,. Cooke jokes, “welcome to my world.”

“Just so as you know, this rule goes also for Obamacare, the economy, foreign policy, firearms law, and absolutely every other area of public policy,” Cooke writes. “I have been called a ‘racist’ for so long now that I’m almost looking forward to a Hillary presidency so that I can be called a ‘sexist’ instead.”
