Glenn Greenwald Smears Elizabeth Warren Using a Right Wing Attack Video

Nobody is pure enough for the Mighty G

Sometimes Glenn Greenwald does something that really brings out his true agenda — and it’s not at all related to helping advance progressive causes. The most important thing to Greenwald often seems to be simple sabotage of the democratic process, with smear tactics and ugly personal attacks the order of the day.

Today’s example is especially nasty, as Greenwald uses a video shot by a far right hatchet man to attack Senator Elizabeth Warren for not toeing his anti-Israel purity line.

This little eight second clip shows Warren walking to her next appearance at the Netroots Nation conference, when right winger Joe Schoffstall ambushes her to ask about Israel’s invasion of Gaza. Warren, obviously in a hurry, keeps on walking and doesn’t answer — and of course, the wingnuts who staged this hit piece claim she was “running away.”

The really ironic thing here is that Greenwald’s intent and the intent of the wingnut who made the video are exactly opposite. Greenwald’s trying to imply Warren isn’t pro-Palestinian enough, but the wingnut is implying she isn’t pro-Israel enough.

It’s quite amazing to see Greenwald, a purported hero of the progressive movement, attacking one of the most articulate and intelligent female voices for the progressive movement using the sleazy work of rabid right wingers — but it’s certainly not the first time Greenwald has aligned himself with the far right in order to smear and libel one of his many enemies.
