Glenn Greenwald is what liberals are supposed to be. Please support him his voice is rare and important.

Yes, he's somewhat of a socialist/anti-capitalist but he's pretty unbiased in finding and reporting the truth on both sides... I'd rather have a debate with someone like him about how to make things better than some insane critical theory leftist trying to redefine what truths even are.

He is someone I could have a drink with, talk about our differences, learn something from, and come away stronger.

I respect these tweets so much. They perfectly describe the dog-whistle that RUSSIA has become to TDS left.

It short circuits their brain and activated their amygdala, the fight or flight area that has obviously been damaged by the intellectual contagion called CRT.

Fidel Castro blamed the U.S. and the embargo for ALL of Cuba’s problems. Communists gonna Communist. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Not much different than the hardcore neocon types who think massive Corporations dictating our lives is OK as long as it's not the Government.

Both extremes ignore that CULTURE is key. Not Government, not big business. The culture.

Yeah but he's been saying this for a LONG time and has always been pretty consistent, moving a bit to the right if anything.

I'm sure that many people here voted for Obama or are former lefties. Saying ALWAYS is way too strong.

There are noble people who we can disagree with instead of being simple minded folks who insist on all or nothing. Glenn Greenwald's reporting has done far, far more for this country than anything you've ever attempted or accomplished, Derp.

He may be a liberal but he is HONEST. Most of them are complete liars whose ends justify their means.

He sure is. A REAL journalist, with a brain, a conscience, and a spine.

Honestly if they said "China planted the Hunter Biden laptop" I would've been a lot more likely to believe them.

Falling back on the old Russia excuse just shows how pathetic and unoriginal they are.

There's one glaringly obvious reason why they're fixated on Russia and the Russian people.

He killed it on Tucker last night. He said this is the moat corrupt media he’s ever seen in his life.

I find it striking that most of the liberals or leftists that I considered to have integrity and to attempt to have principled policies, are mostly hated by the mainstream liberals now, if still active. Greenwald, Matt Taibbi, Tulsi Gabbard, and more.

Absolutely. Anybody with integrity and taking a stand against the establishment, or merely not carrying water for them is targeted for character assassination.

Do leftists actually believe it's Russia behind everything? Or do they know it's a lie. If they REALLY believe it, I think it goes way beyond your ordinary mental illness.

I lived with one that had a msnbs on TV for 4 hours a day. They believed it. All if it. Even the ridiculous hooker pee tapes

The extremely mentally ill ones believe it; the moderately mentally ill ones just pretend so that they can use it as a weapon.

Russia is not a threat as in the case of Soviet Union. Russia is fighting to not lose its influence in its backyard. If we take Historical context to this what the Millitary Intelligence complex is trying to do is similar to What Rome did to Carthage. China is to the US what the Persian Empire was to Roman Empire. China now has the capability to even out or Out produce the US in raw materials and finished products for the first time in 110 years since US became an Industrial Behemoth the main reason for victories in both World Wars.

Glenn should be the third debate moderator.

Why? He can go on any media and push facts without bias.

Yes, he has his own bias but it doesn't stop him being a journalist.

Proper old school, not the activists you see these days.

Like the Ben Rhodes quote:

"The average reporter we talk to is 27 years old, and their only reporting experience consists of being around political campaigns. That’s a sea change. They literally know nothing."

Greenwald would be an ideal moderator because he'd ask hard questions for both sides. AKA the traditional role of a debate moderator for the last 100 years.

President_Xi_Jinping 2 points ago +2 / -0

Which is why neither party would let him anywhere near the stage. Only during trump would repubs allow otherwise they never would.

deagesntwizzles [S] 4 points ago +4 / -0

That article was spicy and relevant:

"Rhodes and others around Obama keep on talking about doing all this novel thinking, playing from a new playbook, bucking the establishment thinking. But if that is the case, why have they given so much foreign policy power to two career hacks who never have had an original thought? I mean, of course, Joe Biden and John Kerry. I guess the answer can only be that those two are puppets, and (as in Biden’s case) are given losing propositions like Iraq to handle."

Greenwald is worth following. So is Michael Tracey (my view a liberal/libertarian maybe, but an actual JOURNALIST blogger), at: https://twitter.com/mtracey

Barbs 3 points ago +3 / -0

I agree.

The independent journalists I follow who still have integrity:

Tim Pool

Luke Rudkowski

Glenn Greenwald

Allum Bokhari

Cassandra Fairbanks

Lee Fang

Michael Tracey

Andy Ngo

Sharyl Atkisson

Mollie Hemingway

Matt Taibbi

...and a few others I’m probably forgetting at the moment. These ones tend to be pretty solid though.

I have always liked Greenwald, he is a real investigator and does the work. It's funny when he would rake W over the coals I would agree, so would liberals. When he would rake Obama over the coals I would agree, but the liberals hated him.

He is a man of principle.

Not really, he never released all of the info from Snowden, just info already in the public record. And wow, how lucky was he to get that super rich investor for his publication...

What was the mortal sin Greenwald committed to make liberals turn on him? Refusing to uncritically accept the Russiagate BS?

6
deagesntwizzles [S] 6 points ago +6 / -0

Truth is Treason in an Empire of Lies.

In an erra of Fake Narrative News, Greenwald unflinchingly keeping it real is seen as being a 'race traitor' to the Media Elite.

whippeat 6 points ago +6 / -0

He's a gay hardcore leftist. But - he is at least rational, based in reality, and hasn't gone totally insane. National treasure might be pushing it, but he's certainly an admirable person with strong principles. A real journalist, seeking the truth, regardless of who that truth might help or hurt. That's something I can support.

China wants the finger pointed away from them. Russia was once our biggest adversary during the cold war, but that is pretty long in the past and they are not nearly the competitor that China is.

1
Olds77 1 point ago +1 / -0

That was the entire Soviet Union with much of Eastern Europe under it's thumb in Warsaw Pact countries. Russia after a decade long economic contraction is nowhere near the power the Soviet Union was and sanctioning them is only rewarding China who the Russians will have to turn to and bend over backwards for. China threatens Taiwan, ended Democracy in Hong Kong and has concentration camps not to mention their Coronavirus cover up that made sure it would turn global yet we sanction Russia for far, far less to China's benefit.

He's just alright. Honestly, I mind the other writers at The Intercept more but he controls what gets published on there. He employs leftist journalists who believe in the "RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA!" nonsense too. Some of the pieces on that site are run of the mill Leftist fantasy porn.

3
Barbs 3 points ago +3 / -0

Yea, The Intercept as a whole is a leftist rag, but Glenn is so solid he even lets his reporters publicly disagree with him in the pages of his own publication.

That’s why I never really follow organizations anymore, just individual reporters/journalists. I’m constantly tearing Intercept writers new assholes on Twitter. Jeremy Scahill is one of the worst “journalists” alive. A complete dumbass from top to bottom.

This is the technique that Middle East countries use with Israel. Anything that goes wrong in any Arab country . . . it's Israel's doing. And if you suggest otherwise, you are an Israeli asset.

Sometimes they blame America, but mostly Israel.

Blaming someone else by appealing to emotion is always a great cover-up for corruption. BLM, Feminism, “Russian collusion” hoaxers.

It's like saying the Jews are behind all the problems.

Sounds like the fascists have no new ideas.

Glenn Greenwald and Julian Assange are what journalism is supposed to be.

Fearless, unbiased, curious, always ready to speak truth to power no matter how unbiased or dangerous.

And I say that knowing if Trump ever did something wrong for real, they'd probably be the guys who took him down for it. As it should be.

They're the ideal of the "intrepid reporter" from comic books and spy novels, modern versions of Walter Cronkite and Edward R. Murrow. May they always get their scoop, and never breach their sacred trust.

It is, ironically, a lot like the "Red Scare" that lefties like to deride so much.

The irony is that the left say that the right-wing is obsessed with Russia and Communism - That the fear of Russia is the realm of 1970's Republicans.

The Media controlling the minds of the people is kind of distorted / inverse application of the idea of the 'byzantine generals problem'. Basically, normally, the idea is you by default have more ie 60% of your generals are not traitors, and you can trust their opinion. Therefor you can rout out the bad generals just by the opinions of ie the generals and their opinions on each other.

The idea is you can trust the majority of these sources.

The media however applies this in reverse, they know if enough of the bad guys own enough the major visible independent news sources, they can reverse the effect and take over the king essentially.

I like to believe most of it is disingenuous, and just an excuse to ignore the horrendous crimes of the party they support. But it seems like a lot of them somehow actually believe it. It's hard to imagine. I just don't understand how you could be that gullible. I think there is massive amounts of mental illness. It's absolutely rampant.
