Of Course WND Loves Heckler Who Called Obama The Antichrist
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily devotes an entire July 25 article to how some random heckler called President Obama the Antichrist:

A heckler blasted Barack Obama during the president’s speech in Los Angeles this week, calling him the “anti-Christ” and warning him that he would be “destroyed,” before being ushered out by a police officer.

When Obama got up to speak, the man, wearing a blue shirt and standing at the front of an otherwise Obama-adoring crowd, shouted: “Jesus Christ created the heaven and the earth. … You are the anti-Christ. You are the anti-Christ. … You will be destroyed. You will be destroyed.’

Amid a mixture of cheers and boos from the crowd, with several people shaking their heads, the man continued shouting as an officer came and took his arm and led him away.

Curiously, WND fails to take the opportunity to let its readers know that it was an early rider on the Antichrist bandwagon.

As we've documented, WND has been pushing this idea since even before Obama was elected, later promoting a anonymous YouTube video (since revealed to be the work of Carl Gallups, under his nom de smear PPSimmons) erroneously quoting Scripture to claim that the Bible has identified Obama as the Antichrist.

This is a rare example of the WND self-promotion machine failing.
