Why Is Glenn Greenwald Promoting an Extreme Right Wing 9/11 Truther?
Just a couple of days after he promoted the extreme right wing militia Oathkeepers (referring to them as “a coalition of current and former military, police, and other public officials”), activist Glenn Greenwald is now hyping an article by another far right conspiracy monger: Judge Andrew Napolitano.
Napolitano is probably best known for his loony shows on Fox Business, but he’s also a very frequent guest on the Alex Jones show, a big promoter of the John Birch Society, a close associate of racist paleocons Lew Rockwell and Ron Paul, a neo-Confederate who pushes the idea that Abraham Lincoln was a war criminal, and to top it all off — a 9/11 Truther.
And on 9/11 of this year, he went on Glenn Beck’s show and compared Syria’s use of chemical weapons to the Clinton administration’s siege of the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas.
That’s who Glenn Greenwald thinks you should be reading.
A question for liberal supporters of the Greenwald agenda: is that just fine with you? Are these the people you want to be associated with?
