Honorary Alaska blogger, Max Blumenthal, was named by Allison Hoffman "the YouTube Michael Moore" the other day, at the blog Tablet. Max is back in Israel, doing, among other things, a followup to his video, "Feeling the Hate," which showed so much hatred toward President Obama by young Israelis and by young Americans visiting Israel, that it was pulled from YouTube and Huffington Post, for unexplained reasons.
While much of the world likes President Obama far, far more than they did his predecessor, the nutty right in the USA and many Israelis hate him to a frightening extent. Liberal American Jews, who voted for Obama and continue to support him, should realize how quickly the hatred and racism toward our president is spreading in the Jewish State:
In spite of his Israeli expansionist detractors from the left and the right, Max is quickly growing into one of the more important young journalists in the USA.
Max discusses aspects of what he has learned from increasing pressure at his blog. Here's a screen shot of one of the many thousands of hate emails he's gotten recently. Hopefully, it should help assauge some of our Alaska bloggers who have been targeted recently by hate email, op-eds (removed, like Max's video, and with no explanation offered) and other crap:
Speaking of President Obama, here's a link to an audio conference he had today with progressive bloggers, on health care reform.
