Genuinely outraged by President Obama’s styrofoam cup salute to U.S. Marines? Many are and rightly so. The White House posted a video of it to its Instagram account. Did they “manufacture” these gut reactions to the video?

Citizens are honestly upset and enraged by the contemptuous action. But you must be wrong! According to our Smarter Than You media and Beltway betters, y’all are just wingnutty nuts with wings, rubes.

Deranged. And silly.

How dare you be passionate in an unapproved manner?!

@snarkandboobs You're not allowed to tweet about the not allowed lectures.

THIS! Right here! If I wanted to be browbeaten into compliance, I'd slap a big D on my forehead. https://t.co/AwfAKhNl2s

How dare you not submit to The One and his optics-hating?

@NoahCRothman @brianstelter Could have more to do with the fact that the photo was posted by the WH.

24 hours later, I'm still stunned the White House would post Obama's "Latte Salute." Why? http://t.co/1RonfIPU2P pic.twitter.com/3m3SQ7igvW

And then came New Republic’s Brian Beutler who wasn’t content to just ridicule Conservatives; He had to diminish and demean service members as well.

This picture is way better without context. But fine here it is anyway from @brianbeutler http://t.co/F7frGRZzSc pic.twitter.com/189Ej2WTrL

The pitiful “but Bush” spin was swiftly quashed last night. But he had more.

@OrwellForks @brianbeutler @SonnyBunch You gotta be putting me on…

Shorter @brianbeutler "Yeah, he can half-ass a salute because he's CEO and CEO's can do anything they want unless they're Mitt Romney."

The things @brianbeutler doesn't know about military courtesy and tradition could fill the Library of Congress.

Obviously, the #LatteSalute isn't going to alter my vote. But holy God, liberal media, you are begging for it. pic.twitter.com/eofQU6ERYt

Funny, this “silly” matter seems to be taking up a lot of liberal media’s time.

In addition to claims that "deranged" conservatives are obsessing over the latte salute, MSNBC and ABC sure have spent a lot of time on it.

— Gabriel Malor (@gabrielmalor) September 24, 2014

Gee, we wonder why?

You can tell exactly how damaging #LatteSalute really is by the volume of howling from the Left.

— Cuffé (@CuffyMeh) September 24, 2014

The whole Latte Salute thing may seem trivial, but its how you go on offense. The left is beside themselves.

— Steven Shaw (@czechov) September 24, 2014

Ding, ding, ding! Deranged? Trite? No, the problem for the liberal media and those who fancy themselves Smarter Than You is that Conservatives can now fight back and go on offense. Hard. They can quash false narratives and pitiful spin attempts (like the absurd attempt at a Bush comparison) immediately. Libs wanted to screech “But Bush” and have people cower and shut up.

Not anymore. Your control? Lost.

Speaking of driving narratives, Dems should be running scared from this now too:

Oh, gosh. I want to mail Beutler's piece to every service member and veteran with a big "Democrats think" on it: pic.twitter.com/eofQU6ERYt

— Gabriel Malor (@gabrielmalor) September 24, 2014

Yes, sir.

A question for the oh-so-wise ones:

Hey @BrianBeutler, if #LatteSalute is totes fine, how much you want to bet Obama will never salute with something in his hand again?

And then there’s this:

@OrwellForks -the Americans I'm talking to here in KY think it's big SHAMEFUL deal- I know our opinions don't count – maybe our votes will

— Liz Wilson (@kysgabbygirl) September 24, 2014

Amen. Can you see 2016 from your contempt-filled bubble, media? We can.


Hey media! This truth-snark is why your lectures about ‘silliness of #LatteSalute’ are absurd

Did Obama perform the #LatteSalute with a Styrofoam cup before he went to the UN to talk about the environment?

But Bush! Pathetic libs compare Obama’s disgraceful cup salute to Marines with THIS [photos]
