Johnnie Flip Flop

Aravosis Supported War On Iraq
Calling Those Opposed To It
"A Bunch of Hippies"
Aravosis just wrote this regarding the war:

"The point is that war has consequences, and our actions have consequences. Everyone who continues to support this war continues to support the growing cost of this war - $300 billion (not counting the trillions needed in the long term for benefits, etc.), over 2,000 dead, and scores of civilian killings (intentional and unintentional). This war has a real cost, and far too many Americans don't seem to realize that this, accidents and all, are what they continue to sanction."

But Aravosis supported the war before he opposed it. He flip-flopped on this position.

He was one of the Americans who "sanctioned" this war! I remember him calling those opposed to the war "a bunch of hippies".

Aravosis is simple. If it is popular, Johnnie likes it. If it is unpopular, Johnnie hates it.

Let's face it, Aravosis is just a Rethuglican in liberal drag. His greatest desire is to be admired and adored. When he was a gay Republican, he was only slightly tolerated by the Republicans. That was simply not good enough for our Johnnie.

He decided to switch teams, while keeping many of his right wing core values (the love of money, the hatred of women, and the appreciation of all things superficial). He knew that if he switched teams, liberals wouldn't hate him for being a big Neiman Marcus loving homosexual male. He would be embraced, and possibly loved and admired.

The reality regarding Aravosis is simple. He is a mean and nasty human being. He just happens to work on the right side of the political fence. Activism gives John an outlet for his rage and anger. He is able to discharge his hostility on a daily basis to get his rage fix.

He is clearly a narcissist and he has a constant need for adoration and attention. He can never take a word of criticism nor accept one bit of blame when he contributes to or creates a bad situation.

He has no sense of loyalty and will turn on a friend just as quickly as an enemy. Ask anyone who has been banned in the past.

Lurking underneath his need for approval rests his reptilian Republican dirty underbelly. The underbelly he rolls over to show when the likes of "nice" Kathryn Harris show up to give little Johnnie doggie a bone of approval. He craves "celebrity" status, but has only achieved a level of "pseudo-lebrity". Most people don't know who Andrew Sullivan is, but fewer people know who Aravosis is. The only reason most of us know about him is due in large part to the "Gannon" affair. That is how I and many others first heard about Americablog, but searching for "Gannon" not by searching for "Aravosis".

Aravosis will kiss up to anyone he perceives as having fame or power. Those who post are just his "flock" and they either end up getting "fleeced" or "slaughtered" by his angry diatribes, or by simple being banished to the land of the banned.

Lydia, I am sure it is better than being Gannon's "bulldog"!

Or maybe Gannon was Chimpie's bulldog. Who knows.

You know Americablog is much like Creationist blogs and message boards. If you bring up anything that cotnradicts their worldview, be prepared to be banned.

So, yeah, he's like an evangelist.

Can you post some links please? Not that I am doubting that Aravosis has changed positions, but I have never seen any reference to him supporting the war. Admittedly, I was not a reader of his blog for a really long time. It's just that claiming that he has supported the war without offering substantiation weakens your point.

I remember Aravosis saying this and this has been confirmed by other bloggers. He repeatedly supported the war in the early days (several years ago).

I understand being skeptical, but pay attention to Aravosis and how conservative he actually is.

I do want to get past the whole "focus" on him, but I and many others feel that he is duping people into donating large sums of money in order to support his lifestyle.

In this regard he is much like a televangelist. The way his followers react and attack all those who question him kind of scares me.

Why is it so hard to understand that there are secular cults as well as religious cults. The new media is creating some of the same problems as the old media.

Avarosis - did it to me as well... Really sneaky stuff - like not posting requests I made of him to defend his support for the war - would not get published.

But when I would ask "f this is not an open thread? Can I not pick my own subject?" That would get published.. back and forth he would pick an choose with me - until I came off as some kind of harebrain with scattered thoughts.

To hell with him. He's a phoney.

Avarosis has been against the Iraq war but is in full support of Israel kicking the bejesus out of Lebanese civilians.... That is what I was referring to.
