Glenn Greenwald: Help, I’m Being Oppressed by the US

Not
Weird • Views: 20,114

Stand back — Glenn Greenwald’s playing the victim again: Glenn Greenwald Vows to Return to U.S. After ‘Exile’.

Glenn Greenwald said in an interview published late last week that he intends to return to the United States at some point, admitting that he does “feel a bit on exile.”

The Brazil-based American journalist who has reported extensively on top secret surveillance programs revealed through documents leaked by Edward Snowden said he refuses to be kept out of his native country simply for doing his job.

“I do feel a bit on exile but I don’t mean to stay away from the US,” Greenwald told the website Telerama. “I wanna force the issue at some point. I refuse to be kept out of my own country for doing journalism.”

In point of fact, Greenwald “exiled” himself to Brazil, nobody is trying to keep him out of the United States, and his talk about “forcing the issue” is absurd. There is no issue to force, and he knows this; but painting himself as a victim of the evil US always plays well with his cultish followers.

Anyone from the government talking to him about ANYTHING is a sure sign of targeted oppression!!! The fact that Glenn would be forced to go through customs is a travesty itself!!

There is a person I visit on occasion who is so paranoid that I have to turn my cell phone off when I go in, leave the computer in the car, all that stuff. She is convinced that people are spying on her. In her case she thinks it’s the NSA now, before it was her ex. (who didn’t know a modem from a mouse). I put up with the nonsense, but at times it gets a bit over the top.

I was never a huge fan of Pink Floyd, but it was because I thought they were bit prententious. Never thought I’d add antisemitism to the list.

Fun fact: a friend of mine, who’s a diehard Floyd head, actually questioned my ability as an artist because I didn’t listen to Pink Floyd.

Because it’s an ugly cartoon of Dianne Feinstein, my first thought was that it was another WINGNUT production, except that it was being retweeted by Teh Glenn’s #1 Fan.

IIRC (and I probably don’t, correct me as needed) — they had a parliamentary system, the Nazis were non-negligible minority who maneuvered their way into the governing coalition, then they did something violent to the rest of their coalition and blew up the Reichstag (framing the faction they most opposed)… and then everyone who wasn’t with them after that was afraid to say so out loud.

That is more correct than what I wrote - which still makes the twit a twitter moron.

What really happened.

In September 1932, the Nazi members of the Reichstag, together with support from the Center Party elected the prominent Nazi Herman Goering as President of the Reichstag (equivalent to House Speaker). Using his new position, Goering managed to prevent the Chancellor from presenting an order to dissolve the Reichstag, whilst a vote of no confidence in the Chancellor and his government was passed. Thus having forced the resignation of the new government, the Reichstag allowed its own dissolution. Although losing 34 of their seats in the following election, the Nazis retained enough influence to assure that Papen would be unable to form a new Government and the Chancellor resigned on 17th of November 1932. After Papen’s resignation, Hindenburg still refused to appoint Hitler as chancellor fearing that a Hitler Government would become a dictatorship. The President then tried to re-install Papen as Chancellor, but Papen was unable to gain the support of his own cabinet, including Schleicher who was Minister of Defence. President Hindenburg then appointed Schleicher as Chancellor, the latter having assured the President that he could get the support of the Nazis in the Reichstag. However, Hitler and his Nazi party had other ideas, and Schleicher found that he was unable to win the support of any of the parties in the Reichstag and was forced to resign as Chancellor on January 28th 1933. Finally on January 30th, 1933 President Hindenburg decided to appoint Hitler Chancellor in a coalition government with Papen as Vice-Chancellor.

So the fiancee and I went out in the not-too-heavy snow yesterday evening in Brooklyn and picked up a Christmas tree and carried it home. Call me corny, but it was a special moment, especially with the snow falling. And I’m an atheist who hates the crass commercialism and would rather be deaf than hear something like Taylor Swift singing “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”.

And to answer you questions, no, celebrating Christmas doesn’t bother me as an atheist. It’s a pagan winter celebration with Jesus shoe-horned in anyway. And one of the few places where you actually get a dose of Jesus is with church hymns like “O Come All Ye Faithful”, and I love those.

My favorite bit about the Thessalonians quote is that the “work” he’s talking about is contrasted later in the letter against “idle busybodies” in the church who meddle and tell others what to do instead of doing constructive work themselves.

It’s an exhortation against “managers,” not beggars.
