Greenwald: All You Uber-Nationalistic Jingoistic Devoted Loyalist Hypocrites Are Free to Disagree

The Mighty Greenwald makes excuses again
Weird • Views: 15,523

Have you noticed that every second or third article by Glenn Greenwald at The Intercept is explaining and/or defending something awful he’s done, or viciously attacking his critics for pointing it out? It’s really striking. At least half of Greenwald’s time these days is taken up with trying to justify his very obvious anti-American agenda, with reams of verbiage and insults.

Here’s the latest example, in which the most moral and honest journalist who has ever lived frantically attempts to justify the New York Times story on NSA spying against China: Some Facts About How NSA Stories Are Reported.

I thought it might be fun to extract out just the ad hominem attacks, sarcasm and insults from this typically over-long series of excuses.

Several members of the august “US Journalists Against Transparency” club…

Echoing the script of national security state officials…

True to form, however, these beacons of courage…

… one must congratulate the US Government on its outstanding propaganda feat of getting its journalists to lead the war on those who bring transparency…

…beyond the abject spectacle of anti-transparency journalists…

…cowardly refusing to criticize the media outlets that actually made the choice…

…don’t mislead people…

The jingoistic view of what is “newsworthy” is baseless and warped.

Who created the uber-nationalistic standard…

…are American journalists (and whistleblowers like Snowden) supposed to keep the public ignorant of anything and everything the US Government does to people provided those people aren’t blessed with American citizenship?

…massive deceit and hypocrisy by US officials…

If you’re a US government official, or a devoted loyalist to the US government, then it makes sense that you’d be angry that has been revealed.

…jingoistic government loyalists…

That’s just a quick once-over — there’s plenty more ad hominem where that came from. But perhaps the best line in the whole rant:

Now, obviously, anyone is free to agree or disagree with Snowden’s framework for how these materials be handled and reported.

Sure, you’re free to disagree, you uber-nationalistic devoted loyalist hypocrite jingoistic shill for the national security state!
