It was these same circles who organised and led the anti-Obama campaign during his election. Scurrilous attacks, all ungrounded. Lashon Harah by the religio/nationalist set. Most of Orthodoxy today has been overtaken by this pagan ideology that undermines religion with a tribalistic cult which hates and scorns all those who do not buy the Kahanist line. Democratic values, compassion to others, compromise are viewed as too "christian", too goyisshe. Particularism is triumphant, while the more universalistic values of Judaism are not only downplayed but scorned. They wish to go back to the time of the Judges and glorify vengeance. Hatred of Obama is just part of the picture. They generally hate anyone who calls into question thier perverse ideology and distortion of relgion.
