Andrew Sullivan: anti-Semitic lowlife

Andrew Sullivan used to be one of the more articulate pro Israel anti-Islamofascist pundits out there.  Now he is a paranoid nutter who peddles bizarre, anti-Semitic conspiracies that only a Pat Buchanan and Justin Raimundo could love.  His obsession with torture can only be described as bizarre and we can only speculate as to why Tina Brown’s Newsweek and The Daily Beast does not fire him.

by Ron Radosh

In today’s Daily Beast, Andrew Sullivan has posted a blog post that is so delusional and so over the line that it goes far beyond anything he has yet written in the many tirades he has posted against Israel.  In the course of the post, he argues the following:

First, “a Third World War based on religion” is most likely “inevitable.” The cause of that war will most likely not be the mullahs and theocrats of Iran, which might indeed be the case if its leaders succeed in obtaining nuclear weapons, but rather the Jewish state of Israel!

Second, he actually says — putting himself in the shadow of dozens of notorious anti-Semites from Father Coughlin to Gerald L.K.Smith in the 1930s, to Pat Buchanan and his supporters in present day America — that the media in the United States is controlled by Jewish interests, and hence is friendly to Israel. He writes that the Israeli government can rally “its media outlets (like Fox, and the Washington Post),” as well as “a key part of the Democratic fundraising machinery to side entirely with Israel against the US president.” I bet you did not realize that Fox, the Washington Post, and the Democratic National Committee were all controlled by Israel and its lobby!

 Third, and most serious of all, he concludes his article with the truly bizarre charge that Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu (who, he earlier writes, is beholden to his “neo-fascist base”) is “in league with Romney, Santorum and Gingrich,[and] will make his move to get rid of Obama soon. [my emphasis] And he will be more lethal to this president than any of his domestic foes.”

Let us parse that paragraph for a brief moment. He does not write they will try to get Obama removed from office by a presidential campaign, in which the citizenry might heed their call and elect one of them our president if successful, but that they will try to “get rid of” him in a “lethal” way. Is this just bad writing, or is Sullivan suggesting in some underhanded manner that Netanyahu and his controlled Republican candidates are trying somehow to assassinate or shoot him?

[...]

He argues that Pakistan would most likely tip “into even more outright hostility to any cooperation with the West.” One might say that it could hardly in fact get worse. The country’s military or intelligence agencies harbored Bin Laden, broke with NATO, and shut down American supply routes in protest of its actions. He argues as well that jihad “would boom” if Israel strikes Iran, galvanizing Islamist parties and preventing a rapprochement between our country and Muslim nations.

He says Iran would also use car bombs throughout the world, might block the Strait of Hormuz, and smuggle “high-powered explosives across its border into Afghanistan, where they could be planted along roadways…to kill and maim American and NATO troops.” Of course, Iran is already threatening to block the Strait, and is already targeting and killing our troops in Iraq, which is awash with Iranian bombs.

Sullivan writes that “global recruitment for Jihad would boom as well — reversing all the gains of the last three years.” What gains is he talking about? The Arab Spring and rise of Islamist parties to power?  The shift of once progressive Turkey into a neo-Islamist state? Did the tides of jihad come to an end three years ago, the moment Obama took step into the executive office, only to threaten to come to life again because Israel is trying to defend itself?

[...]

Sullivan’s presence at both Newsweek and the Daily Beast, I would think, are becoming somewhat of an embarrassment to its other editors and staff, at least I would hope so. Sullivan wonders why people have accused him of anti-Semitism, and then he writes stuff like this column which provide ample evidence for that charge. There was a time when distinguished columnists would not be allowed to produce such drivel and have it published, at least not since the 1940s and the columns of Westbrook Pegler.

Decades ago, William F. Buckley Jr. isolated Pat Buchanan from the conservative movement, as he did the John Birch Society earlier, for saying similar things to what Sullivan now writes. What liberal or “progressive” will now demand the isolation of Andrew Sullivan and demand that Tina Brown look at what he writes more closely, as Buckley did to those in his own circle? I anxiously wait to see if anyone steps to the plate.

Read the rest – Andrew Sullivan goes over the line in a delusional blog post.

    Andrew Sullivan is a vile piece of shit. Only the Left is low enough to go after a mentally disabled child the way Sullivan and crew went after Trig Palin. Nothing is low enough that it would surprise me to see it out of them. This is just proof that those who claim to only be “anti-Zionist” are really anti-Semites. They don’t even really try to hide it.

    There won’t be one. As the Alan Dershowitz-Media Matters brawl shows, most of the Left are down with anti-Semitism. They are also down with radical Islam (is there really any other kind?). They are anti-American, anti-Israel, anti-white, and anti-Semitic. That is the core if Leftism. Anyone who is surprised by this really hasn’t been paying attention for the last 30-40 years.

    @ NoThreat2U: I’d demand the afghan cleric construct a church and see to it that the worshippers are protected and that anyone threatening them is killed by the violent mob there. They need to use that mob for something now that korans aren’t being burnt.

    If we as Americans exp muslim americans burnt more Korans, the illiterate in Islam would comes to terms or kill themselves. Either way problem solved.

    We should not rule ourselves by assuming a fundamental illiteracy in Islam is a good way to think. Bite the bullet.

    Caucus tomorrow. non binding since the national GoP disapproved of moving the date up past super tuesday. It’s supposed to be full of disaffected Obama voters going for ROn Paul.

    I plan to attend as a newt supporter. I don’t have much weight behind my opinions other than gut feel in beating OBama in the fall.

    Romney maybe can beat but is a corporate candidate to the bone. No little people allowed.
    Santorum I hear is a mean guy behind the scenes and lost his own district by 20.
    Ron Paul while I like him on his drug message, I think he is bat shit crazy in foreign policy and will lead the world to a nuclear war.
    Newt is eccentric to me but vocal and can fight on his feet. Unlike the other three. I think he will erode O support more than the others.

    I would hang on to Ron Paul as the veep choice though if he keeps pulling support like he is. His type of supporters aren’t gatherable by the other candidates. It’s a big dent in the dems for him to run.

    To go whole hog and be totally politically incorrect, the effeminate substratum of Western homosexual men is a sort of leftover vestige of the flapper era. It’s gotten a little more demonstrative and vulgar than that—i.e., it’s more Lady Gaga and Madonna than Louise Brooks and Clara Bow as far as visuals go—but at heart it’s still a dream of being kidnapped from beneath the palm trees at the oasis under the desert moon by Rudolph Valentino, or his hulking hairy equivalent, while one cries “eek!” and drops a monogrammed scented handkerchief.

    Underneath his leathery, check-shirty telephone lineman drag, that’s what Andrew Sullivan sees himself as being.

    How Ron Paul’s Minions Plan to Hijack the GOP Convention

    Ron Paul is orchestrating a highly unusual, yet precisely organized, grassroots effort to bring as many loyal delegates as possible to the Republican National Convention. Romney’s campaign has some mass appeal but invites little passion. Paul’s might have even fewer supporters than Romney but their energetic zeal could culminate in having an outsize influence at the RNC without having won a single primary.
