Once upon a time I respected Andrew Sullivan, but that was back when Blogging was new and I didn't need to go into detail about how Andrew Sullivan attacked the Conservative movement because he is lazy.
This weekend on AOL, Andrew Sullivan posted a question that was broadcast Web-wide:
"Do we have a double standard regarding Israel's and Iran's rhetoric?"
Most Conservatives I know support Israel, the original Democracy in the Middle east (followed by Iraq, strange that). Andrew Sullivan, in becoming President Obama's favorite Blogger, posts how Israel does not need to worry about Iran or missiles from Gaza or any nation with a rhetoric for destroying Israel.
The only Blogger I know who is a True Conservative and is also an Israeli supporter (like a majority of Conservatives) is a smart, tough New Yorker by the name of Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs. Yes, I would back her in any fight, as I think she does for every Conservative and Jew. It's the New Yorker in me.
During the 2008 campaign when it was proven that President Obama had anti-Israeli advisers, and Rep. Eric Cantor, a Republican and a Jew brought up the issue, Sullivan attacked Cantor, not Obama (strange, that post linked to Jeffery Goldberg's 8/4/08 article is gone).
Andrew Sullivan supported Charles Freeman who supported Palestinian rights over Israeli sovereignty; And on a personal level, when I was highlighting Anti-Israeli rhetoric mixed in with Anti-Bush Rhetoric at the Daily Kos, Andrew Sullivan did not return any of my 4 emails.
Nowadays, Andrew Sullivan does not hide his disdain for Israel. He claims to be Conservative but does not understand that Conservatives believe in Democracy Overseas for any non-European, Asian or Northern American nation as well. And he calls us "Conservatives," racists! Ha!
Meanwhile, Pamela Geller, a True Conservative (and dare I say, charming as well?) of Atlas Shrugs has shown time and again (and again, and again, etc.) that President Obama is not looking out for the Jew's best interest. And, since Andrew Sullivan is President Obama's favorite Blogger (TM), it's time to call him out.
Every American, Every Jew, Every Israeli should stand up against Anti-semitism in this Administration and within the Blogosphere.
Who still supports Andrew Sullivan, Anti-Jew, Anti-Israeli and Anti-Semite?
