Glenn Greenwald’s Interview With Fox’s Resident Racist, Eric Bolling

Greenwald helps Fox News attack President Obama
WTF • Views: 25,200

It’s curious that Glenn Greenwald spews insults at every journalist who voices even mild criticism of his tactics (a favorite epithet is “Obama worshipper”), but then turns around and gives an interview to one of the most hateful and extreme personalities on Fox News, overt racist and Birther Eric Bolling.

“What the Obama administration wants…is to make it so that everybody is petrified of coming forward with information about what our political officials are doing in the dark that is deceitful, illegal or corrupt,” Greenwald told Fox and Friends’ Eric Bolling. “They don’t care about Edward Snowden at this point. He can no longer do anything that he hasn’t already done. What they care about is making an extremely negative example out of him to intimidate future whistle blowers from coming forward because they’ll think they’re going to end up like him. That’s their objective.”

“Obviously he wants to stay out of the clutches of the U.S. government, given the way they persecuted whistle blowers,” Greenwald said. “He’s obviously trying to find a place where he can do that. His real goal is continue to be part of the conversation about why he did what he did.”

Greenwald also fired back at his peers who have intimated that the should be legally culpable for his role in Snowden’s leaks, noting that New York Times writer Andrew Ross Sorkin has apologized for his comment but that Meet the Press host David Gregory has not.

“Thomas Jefferson, 250 years ago, said those who most fear investigations are the ones who attack free press first,” Greenwald said. “This is what journalism is about, shining a light on what the most powerful people in the country are doing to them in the dark. So we’re going to continue to do that no matter what David Gregory and his friends say.”

Greenwald has also hinted at new leaks from the prolific Snowden, but refused to give Fox the exclusive. “You’re going to have to wait along with everybody else until our stories are published,” Greenwald said. “I will say that there are vast programs of both domestic and international spying that the world will be shocked to learn about, that the NSA is engaged in with no democratic accountability.”

Another frequent guest on Eric Bolling’s show: anti-Muslim hate group leader Pamela Geller.

Eric Bolling has called for government surveillance of all mosques, which is ironic considering the topic of his interview with Greenwald.

When President Obama hosted the president of the African nation of Gabon at the White House, Bolling introduced his show by saying, “Guess who’s coming to dinner? A dictator. Mr. Obama shares a laugh with one of Africa’s kleptocrats. It’s not the first time he’s had a hoodlum in the hizzouse.”

In a vicious attack on Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), Bolling said, “Congresswoman, you saw what happened to Whitney Houston. Step away from the crack pipe, step away from the Xanax, step away from the Lorazepam because it’s going to get you in trouble.”

When President Obama visited Ireland, Bolling said:

The list of Bolling’s bizarre, extreme, hateful and racist statements goes on and on and on. It’s why he’s so popular at Fox News.
