Dateline: Fort Leavenworth

Posted on | June 15, 2014 | 33 Comments

If you believe that federal prisoners serving time for multiple felonies are fit to deliver moralistic sermons to law-abiding American citizens, you should apply for a job as an editor at the New York Times, where the traitor Bradley “Chelsea” Manning is considered deserving of status as an op-ed columnist about “media freedom.”

Al-Qaeda doesn’t hate America as much as the New York Times does. Most of their columnists should probably be in Fort Leavenworth.

    How fucking insane is this. Not that Bradley “Chelsea” Manning is a complete bat shit crazy confused convicted felon lunatic, but that the New York Times considers his opinion on editorial coverage of the Iraq War news worthy (over the many thousands of op-ed opinions it could have run instead).

    Nah, there is no media bias. None at all. The New York Times is left of Mother Jones.

    Who do you suppose is ‘who’ in our time? Just the bourgeois sorts who form the Times composers and readers, or all of us?

    Speaking of “Chelsea,” here’s an interesting article from Moonbattery: “Voice of Sanity Raised Against Liberal Establishment’s Transsexuality Campaign.”

    I can’t get to the source article because you have to subscribe to the WSJ. Whatever.

    Anyway, the snippets on Moonbattery are interesting.

    I need someone to explain to me how it happens that while veterans are dying waiting just to get a doctor appointment, a traitor gets a free sex change on the taxpayer.

    This can only be Democratic idea. They all deserve to swing from a rope. And so do the traitors and parasites who vote for them.

    Here ya go:

    Don’t be thwarted by pay walls. If you can get the headline, copy it into a news hub like Bing News. This almost always goes to the full article. Always works for WSJ – I’ve never tried NYT because I don’t care what they print.

    Always remember: even in its death throes, the newspaper business is still run by idiots.

    A traitor? What is this? The 40’s? The Iraq War was a disaster, and now we’re seeing the end result of Republican/Neo-conservative miscalculations, and plain arrogance as radical militants take over the country, and sectarian violence continues. We were better off with Saddam in power! All Manning did, like Elsberg before him, is wake-up the public to what a boondoggle, and slaughterhouse the Iraq war was. The last thing he deserved was 35 years in prison. Not a single person was harmed over the intel he passed on either.

    Ex-PFC Manning decided that an international anarchist was the best man to talk to about changing policy, not, say, run it through a member of Congress. For that, he deserves his sentence.

    You don’t know that dude, if indeed you are a dude…more like a douche, but I digress.

    Any intelligence breach can mean the capture or death of friendly troops and/or foreign assets.

    Manning got the least he deserved. He should have received a bullet in the back of the head instead of a sex change operation at taxpayer’s expense while veterans are having trouble even getting in to see a doctor.

    Of course, we can’t expect a liberal douche with his/her/it’s head shoved so far up Obama’s ass, you’re tickling his tonsils.

    Manning downloaded a quarter-million documents without even knowing what they were and handed them off to a foreign citizen.

    I’d like to shoot him myself.

    Well, you’re right in one way: the last thing he deserves is 35 years in prison. 65 years in prison would have been a much more appropriate reward.

    Fascist creep. Yeah, that’s right, I said it. You guys try to argue that you’re something else, but you’re for every facet of big government(anti-abortion, against marijuana decriminalization, for the military’s blundering which you describe as being pro-solidier, surveillance, pro-police, etc), not to mention you’re obvious bigotry against women, gays, etc. The only thing that upsets you is that your ilk has no control over the current big government. All traditional/movement conservatives are fascists.

    I’d gladly see you hang, scumbag, and would be more than happy to pull the lever, too.

    Members of Congress, especially on the right, are shills for defense contractors, and oil companies, who are the two industries driving our rush to war all over the world, and mostly for profit, and the ancillary benefit of power. There have been a few voices that have tried to stand up to the military industrial complex on both the left, and right like Ron Paul, and Bernie Sanders, only to be called kooks by Fox News hacks, and bowel movement conservatives. Anarchists, especially on the web, are the only real resistance to the current order.

    If the Iraq war was really about oil, it would have been most unnecessary-Sadam would have been given an ultimatum to change the contracts for oil development.

    Second, as for being in the pockets of various companies, let’s take a look at the actual records. Major corporations are equal opportunity donor- they tend to go for people who represent their employees. General Dynamics gives a lot to Democrats in CT for a reason.

    But wait, I read your entire comment, and it’s clear you’re a single issue type who has no real interest in discussion.
