Or, "Anti-Iran Rally Turns Into Anti-Obama Rally"
Well, guess I am not the only frustrated conservative Jew out there...it seems like quite a few showed up at the anti-Ahmadinejad rally in NYC yesterday, and let their feelings about the Sarah Palin dis perpetuated by the liberal Jewish lobbying groups be known:
Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin didn't participate in the "Stop Iran Now" rally and there were a lot of hard feelings about it. It was a simple sign that read "We Want Sarah. Shame On The Rally Organizer."
Howard Webber from Brooklyn held it.
"As important an event as this is, you needed a unity of Democrats and Republicans to show Ahmadinejad that we're not going to accept a nuclear Iran."
Buddy Macy of Little Fells, N.J., felt much the same way. "I'm so disappointed, upset," Macy said. "She would have brought 10,000-20,000 more supporters of Israel . People who were curious were stopped because of partisan action."
The rally organizers, whom self-identify more as "liberals" than "Jews" (although only one designation can get them killed....hmm, does that speak to their character?) were disappointed that some folks dared not to march in ideological goose-step with them:
The brouhaha started after Clinton pulled out after she learned Palin was invited. Three organizations supporting the rally threatened to pull out unless Palin was disinvited. She was but organizers didn't stop there.
They were furious Monday about the political signs brought by some at the rally, like an anti-Obama sign that said, "Jews Against Obama & Ahmadinejad."
"I am upset by the sign because this is a non-political event," said Janice Shorenstein, president of the Jewish Community Relations Council. "We are here today to cry out against Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, not political. American elections are not part of this event."
Don't cry, bubele...after all, you were the one that made it political....
