Ed Schultz Suspended For Vile Comments - "Another One Bites The Dust..." At MSNBCTopics: Follies of the Mainstream Media, Political News and commentaries
The political expression "to drink the Koo-Aid" has its origin as an allusion to the tragic "Jonestown Massacre" events that unfolded in Jonestown, Guyana, back on November 18, 1978, where more than 900 fanatical members of the "People's Temple" killed themselves by drinking cyanide-laced "Kool-Aid" at the behest of the cult's founder and leader, Rev. Jim Jones, who ordered his followers to commit "revolutionary suicide."
So, commentators such as Bill O'Reilly have used the phrase to imply people who will mindlessly adopt the dogma of a group or leader - in this case that of the radical liberal progressives and the far-left - without fully understanding the ramifications or implications, and who are willing to jump off the Proverbial cliff like lemmings, blindly following their twisted ideology.The term particularly befits those "Obamaloons" who perceive Obama as some kind of socialist "deity" and get orgasmic, visceral, reactions eerily similar to a form of pseudo-religious ecstasy - such as MSNBC's Chris Matthews' famous "thrill up his leg," or that swoon, and or faint, at the sight of Obama or the sound of his voice - even as happened with many of his more ardent female supporters at Obama rallies, during the last elections.
The line-up of commentators and hacks at the failing MSNBC cable network have been so overtly and shamelessly partisan in their left-wing rhetoric, so rabidly vitriolic in their attacks on conservatives, and so blatantly "in the tank" for Obama and his socialist agenda - becoming, de facto, in all but name, the propaganda arm of the Obama Administration and the Democratic party, that they have often earned said appellation of far-left "Kool-Aid" drinkers, figuratively, of course.
However, it seems of late, the Obama-lapping hosts and commentators at MSNBC may actually be lacing their far-left "Kool-Aid" if not with cyanide, at least with something just as noxious, since they seem to be falling off like flies from the network's roster; burning-up like Proto-Marxist moths that in their frantic leftist fervor immolate themselves by getting too close to the flame of their left-wing fanaticism in their euphoria - no doubt under the influence of the "Kool-Aid"!
First it was the incredibly vile Keith Olbermann who drank a bit too much of the aforementioned "Kool-Aid" at MSNBC.
Olbermann was suspended two days without pay back in November 2010 when he openly violated NBC News company policy by brazenly donating money to three Democratic political campaigns. Then, after the acquisition of MSNBC's parent company, NBC Universal, by Comcast, and the departure of its chief, left-wing Zealot Jeff Zucker - under whose watch, and arguably with whose encouragement, MSNBC became the left-wing bomb throwing Obama propaganda machine, as well as the financial disaster, it has become, abruptly Olbermann was fired. Surprise, the new management, for a change wanted to make a "profit" rather than just serve as shills for the Democrats and the radical sympathizers of the Obama Administration.
Now, it is the rabid Ed Schultz - always frothing at the mouth in his intemperate hate-mongering left-wing vitriol at MSNBC, the one who in turn seems to have had a bit too much of the network's notorious "Kool-Aid," and who after having called radio talk-show hostess Laura Ingraham a, "right wing slut" and a "talk-slut" on his radio program of May 24, 2011 - for her having had the audacity of "criticizing" (Oh, the humanity...!) president Obama, has been suspended - some say for a week, some say "indefinitely" - from MSNBC, even though he has since sheepishly apologized to Miss Ingraham for his unwarranted attack, with his little slimy tail between his fat legs:
"I am deeply sorry, and I apologize...It was wrong, uncalled for, and I recognize the severity of what I said. I apologize to you, Laura, and ask for your forgiveness."Sigh....One more MSNBC "Proto-Marxist moth" that is lured by, and burns-up, in the flame of his own leftist fanaticism... Heh!
Perhaps, at this point, maybe Comcast should place warning labels on the water coolers at MSNBC that read:
"WARNING: DRINKING THE MSNBC LEFT-WING 'KOOL-AID' MAY PROVE LETHAL TO YOUR BROADCASTING CAREER, AND DETRIMENTAL TO YOUR FINANCIAL HEALTH."I wonder how long it will be before Rachel "Madcow" has a bit too much of the "Kool-Aid" herself, and has to be taken away in a straight jacket delirious with MSNBC lefty "Mad Cow Disease"? At this point she seems borderline... Ha!
Or before it is Chris Matthews' turn, he gets one of them "thrill up his leg" while drinking the MSNBC left-wing "Kool-Aid" has an involuntary "reflect" and "kicks the bucket" of his career with said leg!
