This time, it’s Glenn Greenwald.
Some people never change. What is hilarious about this is at least the teatards go after the President with the whole “HE NEVER CALLED IT TERRORISM” bullshit. Sullivan’s too busy blowing Obama to do any such thing, but he will get all worked up over Greenwald and revert back to his fifth column days. My, how the war or terror and the concomitant war on semantics has changed in the last ten years. Some might want to call Sullivan going after Greenwald (who, by the way, has no statutory authority whatsoever) rather than Obama as the “soft bigotry of low expectations.” Far be it from me to judge.
Now we’re flaming people because when one person gets killed by nutters, if we don’t use the right terminology, why, they love Osama.
Sullivan, you’ve become a fucking joke. I particularly love this: “I really have to try restrain my anger here.” Oh, not the famed Sullivan anger. Whatcha gonna do, you wanker? Change the color of your website? A ten thousand word essay on Niebuhr or Burke- because trust me, that’s fucking punishment enough for some of us. Christ, I can barely make it through the Sunday catholicism and poems- At what point will it sink in that they FUCKING HATE YOU BECAUSE YOU ARE GAY?
For the record, I have an email chain between me and Glenn where I predicted two months ago that Sullivan was warming up to calling Greenwald a terrorist lover. Some leopards don’t change their stripes, ehh, Andrew?
And what makes this all even worse is that what Sullivan is doing to Greenwald, distorting what he has said to call him a terrorist lover, is fundamentally no different from what Marty Peretz and Leon Wieseltier did to Sullivan.
